Newsie News 9/20

Star Trek Movie Casts Uhura
Zoe Saldana, most notabliy seen in the first Pirates of the Caribbean, has been cast as Lt. Uhura. So that brings the total of confirmed cast in key roles up to three with Anton Yelchin as Chekov and Zachary Quinto as Spock. That leaves the roles of Kirk, Scotty, McCoy, and Sulu up for grabs.

3 More Kingdom Hearts Coming
It was announced at the Tokyo Game Show that Square Enix is working on three new Kingdom heart titles. Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep for the PSP, Kingdom Hearts: Coded for cell phones and Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days co-op for the DS. Somehow I'm getting the impression they are trying to shove Kingdom Hearts down the throats of the consumers. Hope it works and by "hope" I mean "let" and by "works" I mean "die."

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Has Dual Mode on Wii
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, a new game coming to the Wii next spring will allow players to swing the Wii-mote like a light saber and use the nunchuk to unleash their Jedi powers. The game will also allow head-to-head action with friends. So essentially this game will allow all the Star Wars fans experience a geek-gasim as they get to fight as Force wielding Jedi. Sounds fun.

Ben 10 Movie Finishes Filming
