Gaming News: 1/19/13

Disney Infinity ToysTwo pieces of news this week could mean two very different things. Nintendo consolidating its handheld and console divisions could mean struggles at the company, but it could also (and more likely) mean the game company is looking to become more competitve in the growing market. And then there’s Sony’s selling of it’s US headquarters. This could mean seriously bad things for the Japanese giant, but it is likely just a move to ease the financial loses and move forward as a company.

Also this week, there’s some games coming out soon, apparently?

Disney Infinity, the open-world sandbox game similar to Activision’s Skylanders, was officially announced. Character packs as well as price points were also announced.

Square Enix announced and then released a brand new Final Fantasy game for iOS. Called Final Fantasy: All the Bravest, the game focuses on combat and features characters from the series’ history.

Nintendo has updated it’s 2013 release calendar for all platforms. This includes release dates for Fire Emblem: Awakening (2/4), LEGO City: Undercover (3/18), among others.

A television series based on the Fallout series of games could be coming soon. A recent patent filed by Bethesda, the owners for the Fallout franchise, points in that direction.

Nintendo is pooling its talent and unifying its handheld and console development teams into one group.

Sony has listed (and apparently already sold) its US headquarters in New York. It’s speculated this was done to cope with fiscal loses throughout the years.
