Legend of Zelda Wii U Delayed

Postby Jonah » Mon Mar 30, 2015 10:38 am

Originally the upcoming Legend of Zelda for Wii U was due for a 2015 release, but within the last couple of months, developers have been playing around with extra possibilities for the game, and so Nintendo has decided to delay the game until 2016. The plan is to make the upcoming title the definitive Zelda experience for gamers.

A part of me is somewhat disappointed about the news but yet I'm also super excited to know that developers at Nintendo are treating the game with such care and affection. :OO:

Sig coming later :)

Nintendo Announce The Development of NX

Postby Jonah » Wed Mar 18, 2015 8:57 pm

So Nintendo is currently developing its next dedicated gaming console which is currently codenamed NX. We know nothing about NX except that along with 3DS and Wii U, it will use the new backend service which is currently being developed by Nintendo and DeNA. The following is the English translation of the statement regarding NX which Mr Iwata made during a recent Japanese press conference.

As proof that Nintendo maintains strong enthusiasm for the dedicated game system business, let me confirm that Nintendo is currently developing a dedicated game platform with a brand-new concept under the development codename "NX". It is too early to elaborate on the details of this project, but we hope to share more information with you next year... Nintendo, together with DeNA, will jointly develop a new membership service which encompasses the existing Nintendo 3DS and Wii U systems, the new hardware system with a brand-new concept, NX, and smart devices and PCs, and Nintendo will be [...]

Today there was important and unexpected news from Nintendo. In a press conference Mr. Iwata revealed that they have formed a business and capital alliance with DeNA. DeNA is a company with about 2.000 employees with headquarters in Tokyo, and it owns Mobage mobile gaming service. DeNa partnered in 2012 with Disney to work on Disney games for mobile devices.

Nintendo and DeNA will develop and operate new game apps for smart devices that are based on Nintendo IP. It’s made clear that it could be any IP, no exceptions. But Iwata was quick to assure us that there won’t be any porting of WiiU or 3Ds games to mobile. We are talking about new games and apps here, specifically built for mobiles. Furthermore they will build a new multi-device membership service. It will be a service that’s accessible from smart devices, PC and Nintendo systems. It’s expected to lauch this fall, and it will replace Club Nintendo. Both companies get share in each other’s capital: Nintendo gets 10% in shares o [...]

Xenoblade Chronicles 3DS Box Art

Postby Jonah » Mon Mar 16, 2015 6:03 pm

I don't normally post anything to do with Box Art but I found this interesting due to the 'New 3DS' box art design. What do think of Nintendo's attempt via box design to differentiate 'New 3DS' software from original '3DS' software?
