We talk to Yuji Naka, creator of Sonic, about his brand new project Ivy the Kiwi? at E3 2010!
Did you enjoy this video?
Yeah. I really DO hate what you mentioned though. On MTV cribs once this american girl was like "I'll show you this handshake we learnt from the "New Zealand Maori Indians" and then proceeded to touch noses with her friend while giggling hysterically". Disgraceful, seriously they basically made fun of the whole thing >.>
Sorry man, I for one don't really hate how popular our country is becoming. I only hate how alot of ppl can't get facts right about NZ >_
Also, there aren't a hell of a lot of long vines in New Zealand, at least where I'm from in the North Island.
I think I speak for most New Zealanders when I say I hate how popular we're becoming overseas. First in LOTR (that was cool though, Peter Jackson is a kiwi himself) the bachelor, in books, now this, the All Whites being the only unbeaten team at Fifa WC. I have pretty mixed feelings on this.
looks familiar, Yoshi touch & go perhaps??
"Ivy the Kiwi" aka "The Draw a line draw a line and draw a line game"
Set phasers to adorable, captain.
Not terribly impressed. I'm sure it will sell tons though, since it's Nintendo.
I t doesn't sound much of a game to play, it's rather stupid...
I hate to be rude but I dislike children games it is so not cool
Nice storybook art style, look original
I really like the art, and Ivy is so cute. :D
isnt yoshi touch and go the prequel to this game?
Kiwis are cute. :) I like the gameplay, it looks interesting and new.
This game looks preti good, original gameplay. I'll definately give it a go when it comes out!
@freek33 Well, yeah, but that was only a kiwi in name and was terribly culturally offensive (jokes :P)
ACH...IT INVOLVES KIWIS MUST BUY NNNAAAAAAAOOOWWWWWW
I do not know... something tells me that this game does not cut it. You control a bird that has no artificial inteligence and walks in one direction and you control it with vines...
It would be fun for the first 4-5 minutes but you would really need to add 5-6 more things or the ability to move things in stage to help Ivy. Would be even better if you could control the artificial inteligence with things that make the bird hungry, afraid, cold, hot, unhappy, happy,curious, etc. What about controling other characters/enemies to influence what the bird does to reach the goal? Only the vines and the continued walk in one direction with the repeated boxed pathern through the whole level will make the game mediocre.
OMG!!! Soooooooooooooo cute!
ive got this game for my phone and its awesome! i cant wait for wii and ds versions
Looks like a legitimately good game. It has this easy to learn, hard to master quality to the game-play that looks enticing.
canvas curse ripoff. Wow! Sega steals ideas again. Like how sonic was a were-hog just after twilight princess
Im not sure if I like the graphics or not...
@ starduke - :O me too
Although I love Sonic, Sega and all, this does not excite me. "Kirby Canvas Curse" on DS has already shown something pretty close in terms of gameplay. I'm not sure about multiplayer neither, but I'll look closely for any news about it, just for the lovely visuals :)
eyah, and red eyes !!!! (no bad feeling : )
not for me
For some reason I have an incredible craving for a green fruit with a brown and fuzzy peel.
Color me excited! This game looks like it will be a blast multiplayer.
@RufusChambers New Zealand Story was also a great Megadrive (i think) game staring your mascot
Yuji Naka! Awesome! This game is going to be fun! It looks fun just watching. xD
Lol, even the creator isn't sure if it's a Kiwi or not.
Kiwi with a question mark. Very possibly NOT a kiwi....but here's hoping :)
wow my nations animal in a game??? how odd that its being made in japan lol
Looks pretty cool and it has a fresh new concept, plus we know it's gonna be good Yuji Naka has something to do with it.
Yuss! finally my national animal makes it in the big league
This would be IDEAL on the PC. Looks very interesting and I am loving the textures. This could be the next innovative platformer following Mario Galaxy(s) and Braid.
glad I bought a wii so I can play web-arcade style flash games w/ it... lol
The gameplay looks simple, but it also seems kind of fun, too.
this actually looks really good!
This game just oozes with developer love. It looks fantastic, from an artistic and creative standpoint. So fresh and so clean, clean.
I hope I won the giveaway they had about this game? I answered the question correctly.
i feel like the DS version is just going to work better
Looks to be a very promising title. Could be the start of a brand new franchise.
