BitSummit for many of us developers here in Japan, is the premiere event of the year. Sure, Tokyo Game Show is big, but Indie and AA have never quite felt at home with the larger, more corporate studios, where vying for floor space and spectacle is more important than the games themselves. Being held in the heart of Kyoto and only a stone’s throw away from the Q-Games office was an added bonus too!

With BitSummit, developers and industry professionals could come together — not just from within Japan but abroad too — in a far more friendly, welcoming and…

The Wonder Boy series is really special. It took the whimsy of Mario and the seriousness of Zelda. Well sort of anyway but that isn’t the point. The point is it has a very special place in many of our hearts. Now to speak in first person dammit.

Fun fact: Mortal Kombat and Sabrina The Teenage Witch take place in the same universe. In 1997, to promote the upcoming sequel Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa reprised his role as Shang Tsung from the first film in an episode of Sabrina The Teenage Witch entitled “Get Over… YOURSELF.” It is revealed that Shang Tsung is actually Sabrina’s uncle by marriage, and while in town on business, he pays the Spellmans a brief visit. Sabrina’s aunts are not thrilled when Shang Tsung fixes dinner–raw boar–or when he takes Salem’s soul after the cat insults him. To get it back, Sabrina agrees to help promote that year’s Mortal Kombat tournament; shenanigans ensue.
