In todays News Post we have two “Shiny” new bits of info that will be really good for Wii and DS users. First off, Nintendo has announced that a new Metallic Silver DS is going to be released some time in 2008/9. Also a new game for the Wii is going to be released some time in the next two years. Ougon no Kizuna, literally meaning “Golden Bonds”, is a RPG game with some fairly well known people behind it. The scenario writer from Final Fantasy XII and the director of Little King Story and Dragon Quest VIII are going to be involved in the making of Golden Bonds, which features a cell-shaded anime type look, as well as a huge storyline and epic boss battles. General combat in the game is very much action-focused; players will point the Wiimote to select enemies, move with the nunchuck, then attack with rapid button combinations. Aside from the main quest mode, which is divided into chapters, there will be an additional 100 or more side-quests to complete. The company producing this game, Jaleco, was featured in the Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu, which is how I came by this news with the help of, again,  my Japanese friend. The game is set for a winter release in Japan but the American release date is not yet decided.
