Nintendo's E3

Postby Jonah » Sat Apr 30, 2016 2:39 pm

Are you still looking forward to E3? I must admit, the latest news regarding E3 from Nintendo this week has left me disappointed. I'm not particularly bothered about NX not being present, but the announcement concerning the further delay of Zelda Wii U, and the fact that Zelda is going to be the only playable game from Nintendo at the show, I do wonder what this means for Nintendo at E3 2016. Last years E3 was considered to be a disappointment by many, but I do wonder how both the media and the fans will react to this year showing. IGN has already described Nintendo's E3 as a nightmare, and even though I often try to defend Nintendo, I'm finding it hard to do this time around. I will still make sure to watch E3 this year, but this is the first E3 I've felt bad about even before the event took place. Also, will we still be treated to Nintendo Tree House streams thi [...]

Rumour: Retro Studios Working on New IP

Postby Jonah » Fri Apr 29, 2016 7:12 am

It's rumored that Retro Studios are busy at work on a new IP. Emily Rodgers (whoever that may be) leaked news concerning Paper Mario: Colour Splash ahead of its official announcement, and now she's stated on Twitter that Retro Studios are working on an altogether new title/franchise for NX. Previous titles in the developers CV include the Metroid Prime Franchise and two Donkey Kong Country titles. Of course, it's no surprise that Retro Studios are working on another game, but what kind of game would you like to see Retro work on next?

Rhythm Thief 3DS eShop Code Giveaway

Postby Jonah » Thu Apr 28, 2016 9:28 am

In recent days, I have donated money to the latest Humble Nintendo Bundle promotion, and due to already owning Rhythm thief for 3DS, I thought I would offer the code to whosoever should claim it first via the Nintendo eShop. The code works only in Europe, so I do apologize that this freebie will not work for US friends unless you own a European console.

Instead of just simply giving the code away, I thought I would make it slightly more interesting by hiding the code in the ascii pic below. The code itself is split into four and hidden somewhere in the center of the controller. Keep your eyes fixed just above and below where the select and start buttons are supposed to be, and try to identify the four spots where the continual pattern of D's are broken.

Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem Heading to Smartphones

Postby Jonah » Thu Apr 28, 2016 7:37 am

Nintendo has announced the development of two new apps for mobile users. Following the success of Miitomo's launch, Nintendo is currently developing apps for mobile based on Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem which will launch later this year. According to Nintendo, the new Animal Crossing app offers a "connected experience with the world of Animal Crossing on consoles". The Fire Emblem app will offer a "more accessible take that still offers great value".

Unsurprisingly, it's the Animal Crossing announcement that catches my attention, particularly since it's designed to offer a "connected experience" with consoles. What does that mean? Will it be compatible and offer new experiences within New Leaf, or does the creation of this app hint at the development of a new Animal Crossing game? Are you looking forward to this app, and if so, what gam [...]

NX and Next Zelda Title Will Launch in March 2017

Postby Jonah » Wed Apr 27, 2016 2:55 pm

Today during a company financial meeting, it was finally revealed that Nintendo's NX will launch worldwide in March 2017, and the next title in the Zelda franchise would also launch alongside the NX. I'm not sure if the Wii U version will also launch the same day, but I am somewhat saddened that the Wii U version has been held up because of NX. I also find it strange that NX isn't going to be at E3, and that the only playable game at the show will be the next Zelda title.

My feelings about this news are very mixed. First of all, I'm excited to know that NX will hit store shelves in under a year, but if they're holding back Zelda for the system's launch, I do wonder if Nintendo is struggling in terms of game development and attracting third parties. Also, where does this news leave Nintendo gamers where 2016 is concerned? I for one am looking forward to Pape [...]

Unofficial Legend of Zelda 30th Anniversary Trailer

Postby Jonah » Thu Apr 21, 2016 8:09 pm

I just found this unofficial trailer on the web which was created in order to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Legend of Zelda series, and I think even Nintendo itself would be proud to create such a trailer. 2016 will be recorded as a great year for the Zelda franchise. We've already been treated to a Twilight Princess remake, a Zelda Picross title on 3DS, but the crowning glory will be the release of Zelda Wii U. I wonder if Nintendo will create a 30th anniversary trailer of its own.

Postby Jonah » Thu Apr 21, 2016 3:55 pm

If you missed last night's premiere of Star Fox Zero: The Battle Begins then don't panic, for the Anime is now available for all to view via YouTube. It just so happens also that I've added it to this post for your viewing pleasure. :OO: I wonder if we will be treated to more Star Fox anime. Would you like to see more other Nintendo characters feature in their own anime, and if so, which character and franchise would you choose? Perhaps you already have a favorite anime that's based off a Nintendo franchise.
