Nippon Ichi continues to crank out announcements for its new upcoming games -- though calling this one a "game" might be a bit of a stretch.

For Famitsu, 428 equals 40

The Famitsu 40/40 has lost some of its lustre in recent times. Since 1998, the magazine has awarded nine perfect scores, but three have come in 2008, including one for Super Smash Bros. Brawl. However, even we found the latest game to receive the honor surprising. 428: The World Doesn't Change...
