First off, designer -- and now director -- Tetsuya Nomura's next game for Square ain't gonna be Kingdom Hearts 2. The first game wasn't even going to be Disney-tacular to begin with (the low-budget play mechanics bear that theory out.) Now that he's got a success he's got his pick of projects, and wants to dissociate himself from The Mouse. Word on the street is that Nomura doesn't even like Disney -- or Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi much either.
Word is Turok Evolution was a massive flop-ola for Acclaim. They were banking the Holiday shopping season on this dinosaur turd, but gamers aren't buying. Supposedly top retailers have already shipped back truckloads of unsold units. Could another E.T. (Atari 2600) style landfill debacle be in Acclaim's future? There's always BMX XXX...
Another juicy tidbit that we've heard whispered is that rock star (well, he acts like one, anyway) game designer Yu Suzuki has left AM2 to start up his own company out of Sega's control. More as it comes.
Finally, we've heard that the latest installment in the decreasingly-popular Tomb Raider series is hitting a major roadblock in the form of Sony. Apparently they were none too impressed with the game when developers Core showed it off, since it's not an improvement -- aside from graphics, of course -- over the last several dreadful rehashes. Apparently Sony's blocking the game until some substantive tweaks appear.
