    IO Interactive to partner with DC for Kane and Lynch comic

    Yesterday IO Interactive (part of Square Enix Europe) and DC announced a partnership to create a Kane and Lynch comic book series. The comic will explore on Kane and Lynch’s criminal past. Ian Edginton is set to write the story and Chris Mitten will be the artist for the series. Both have been around the comic industry for awhile and I think should be good fits for the series. “Kane & Lynch are two of the most interesting videogame characters I have ever seen,” said Hank Kanalz of DC Comics. “I think this new series will show the diversity of our line of books, as our creators capture the essence of these two criminals.” The first issue of the series is set to drop this August.

    Nintendo’s April sales

    NPC numbers are in for April and Nintendo is selling strong. With sales numbers for the Wii of 277,000 and DS systems of 440,000 units it’s hard to believe that anyone in the US still doesn’t have a Wii or DS. “Consumers recognize the unprecedented combination of value and fun offered by Nintendo game systems,” said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “But including even more hardware and software with every Wii system should drive consumer interest even higher.” The Wii Sports Resort that features the Wii MotionPlus sold 179,000 units. At this time, there is no data on how Wii MotionPlus attachment is selling on it’s own.
