Rising Star Gamed has announced Super Black Bass 3D will be released for Nintendo 3DS on April 2 across North America. With 16 releases across seven different platforms, the 3DS comes with new features and gameplay modes such as the Real Rod System which makes use of the handheld’s gyroscope, making the line in the virtual water feel a bit more real. You will be able to cast for over 30 types of fish through various environments and weather conditions as you try to top the games’ global leaderboards. You can also upgrade your gear.

Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut has produced a new batch of screenshots showing off the touched-up graphics. I’d happily post them for you, but quite a lot of them show dialogue or just York driving around, so visit Siliconera to check them out while I watch some paint dry over here; it’s very important. Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut is much more interesting than it looks here, and arrives on PlayStation 3 in April.

Rising Star’s managing director, Martin Defries, has said the firm will be taking control over the US publishing arm of Marvelous. Speaking with MCV, Defries said: “We were given an opportunity to take over the US publishing business of our former parent company Marvelous Entertainment, to rebrand that as Rising Star Games Inc and to build a successful subsidiary.” Defries also said Rising Star has “an existing publisher in the US” with “strong roots into the market,” but didn’t reveal the name of the firm. There’s no word at present on how this will affect Marvelous USA’s publishing deal with Xseed Games, which is owned by Marvelous AQL. Rising Star USA’s very first North American title will be Akai Katana for Xbox 360.

Ju-On: The Grudge has a bit of humor included in the horror game by way of two meters that track your bravery and level of fright.
UGO got hands-on time with the Wii title and after failing a mission, this brief message popped up below the meters:
“A total wuss. That’s what you are. Zero courage. Why don’t you lock yourself in your bedroom and write poetry or something.”
According to an Xseed representative, players must input their gender and astrological sign into the game for customized ribbing should you fail a mission.
Like we aren’t called names enough in our daily lives.
Game’s out in October on both sides of the pond.
