According to a video on Youtube anyway, where they announce it as happening between December 14th and December 15th at a ‘Nintendo Zone near you’. Here’s the official video announcement: How it works is quite simple. Basically, if you go past a Nintendo Zone, the data you send and receive isn’t only relayed via others who used said hotspot, but those who used any Nintendo Zone across the entire country. So in other words, you receive StreetPasses from people who visited Nintendo Zone hotspots other than the one you used, and send your own data to random people in other areas as well.
Looks like his mystery ‘speech’ won’t involve an unannounced Nintendo game then, since Game Informer have mentioned in an article that he’ll be discussing a previous announced Wii U title then instead. Here’s what they say on the matter according to their own words… Reggie Fils-Aime, president of Nintendo of America, will be on-hand to talk about a previously announced Wii U title. But what will it be? I give some ideas and thoughts after the break!
Interested in more Kirby Triple Deluxe, the exciting new Kirby game that Nintendo’s releasing on the 3DS in the near future? Well it seems you may now been luck, since some anonymous people in Japan have scanned some magazine articles that confirm even more returning characters and things in the game! Head inside to see them all…
A short while ago, before Pokemon X and Y were released this October, I wrote a rather controversial article about how Mega Gengar could be the big game breaker of the generation. But while some people in the comments disagreed, it seems like now the competitive Pokemon community has seemingly though the same thing, with Smogon quick banning Gengarite from the Overused tier.
Because apparently someone there doesn’t know the difference between a Wii and a Wii U. Just have a look at some of those listings, it’s absolutely and utterly laughable how wrong they are. Keep reading to find out…
Okay, I don’t usually post anything from this guy, and for very good reason (Micheal Pachter’s track record for ‘accurate predictions’ is only slightly better than Sylvia Browne’s was for psychic ones). But today, everyone’s least favourite analyst has some rather unkind words for Mr Iwata and some typically stupid comments. Read on to find out what they are!
When it comes to implementing DLC in their games, you have to admit Nintendo is one of the better companies in the market. After all, we get actual ‘add on’ content like New Super Luigi U and extra characters/campaigns for titles like Pikmin 3 and Fire Emblem Awakening for goodness sake. But there’s one thing that’s been bugging me for a while now. Namely, when the heck are we getting more DLC for well… more interesting titles?
Because there’s a very familiar face hidden away in the box art on their site, and in a rather noticeable spot too. So who is it? Cranky Kong! Yep, Amazon’s Italian box art for the game shows Cranky Kong hiding away behind the three main playable characters in a way that highly suggests he might the elusive final playable character! Find a picture showing this after the break.
Remember a few weeks ago when we said that the Xbox One was already about to outsell the Wii U in total sales to date in the UK? Well unfortunately for Nintendo (and especially their UK marketing tea), it’s now confirmed that within just a few weeks of launches of the Xbox One and PS4, both systems have handily outdone the Wii U in total sales. Or in other words, they’ve each sold more systems in the last few weeks than the Wii U has in this country in about a year or do.
Oh bloody heck. And there I was thinking those StreetPass challenges seemed hard enough to complete, and then someone online goes and proves that you also get a reward for dodging Cuccos for 999 straight seconds!
