Just read it, seriously. It’s pretty much in a nutshell why I’ve stopped reading any non Nintendo specific gaming sites altogether, because they’re utter trash written by narcissistic, selfish jerks who seen to despise the very existence of a gaming community.
As some of you may remember, Nintendo and Game Freak showed off pictures of Lucario in what appeared to be a Pokemon fighting game earlier this year. But now, it’s finally been officially revealed! Starring fighting type Pokemon like Lucario and Machamp, Pokken Tournament is apparently a Tekken style fighting game that’ll soon be released in Japanese arcades. Here’s the official announcement, as well as English trailer for the game:
So yeah, looks pretty cool eh? But I’m not 100% happy with this announcement, and you can find out why in the full post…
It’s not out yet, but this new fan game sure looks to be an interesting one. I mean, a game that mixes both Paper Mario and Super Mario 3D Land together? And that’s actually a real 3D Mario game you can play on your computer?
Here’s the trailer for it, showing off a ton of awesome features and levels:
All in all, it looks like we could have an actual Nintendo quality fan game here! And it’s probably gonna be a lot better than Sticker Star too, especially given the presence of actual new content rather than just things recycled from New Super Mario Bros.
It’s a pretty good implementation of the character too, with his model being custom and his speed being at least somewhat altered to match. Here’s a video:
So if you want to try playing through Super Mario 64 as Sonic the Hedgehog for whatever reason, you can view the full post and use the download link provided. Hey, it’s got be better than most attempts at 3D Sonic games prior to Sonic Adventure…
Sorry about the lack of regular posts in the last week or so. I’ve had other things to work on, and after actually working for most of the day, I’ve just not been inspired to post any news or articles about Nintendo.
If you do want to hear any more about the company and also want to support the site, go to our forums at http://nintendo3dscommunity.com instead. Or the Wario Forums site at http://warioforums.com, if it’s about that very specific series. This is because any news not posted here will probably end up on the forums at some point, so you can expect a few more regular updates there instead.
You may have seen this story online already. But if not, the game in question has been in development (by ONE person) for more than thirteen years straight. Named Tobias and the Dark Sceptre, this interesting indie game has been developed by an indie dev called Adam Butcher for so long, the modern indie scene as we know it didn’t even exist yet. Here’s a video about the game by its maker, explaining quite why this 2D Zelda style title took just so long to finally complete:
Looks pretty basic doesn’t it? Maybe a bit old fashioned? Well regardless, I’m actually kind of impressed by this guy’s work, and if you want to know why, keep reading!
It’s a bit old now, but come on, this LA Times article is absolutely hilarious in how stupid it is. Because hey, we all know that Nintendo makes Playstation consoles, right?
Yeah, nothing much to say here. If you’re gonna report on video games released at E3, please do at least the most basic fact checking beforehand. Otherwise blunders like this kind of kill your credibility stone dead.
Remember Eternal Darkness on the Gamecube? A tad disappointed that Shadow of the Eternals never became a reality? Well, if so, you might be a bit more depressed now you’ve seen these amazing pieces of concept art based on the game, since it shows just how much thought was originally put into making a proper sequel for a past Nintendo system.
Here’s a sample:
Want to see more? If so, head inside to see all the great Eternal Darkness 2 artwork from the game that unfortunately never was!
Because while the idea of Nintendo licensing out their IPs has been discussed a bit in January’s financial briefing, their most recent report mentions that some of these plans will be revealed by the end of the year. In Iwata’s own words…
We are not at a stage where we can share the specifics with you today, but we are seeing possibilities in licensing character IP in areas Nintendo has never worked before. I expect to be able to discuss some of the details before the end of this calendar year.
As you can see, it seems pretty clear that Nintendo’s going to be doing some major licensing out to third parties, and I strongly suspect that might tie in with either television, film or perhaps comic adaptations of some of their franchises. After all, that’s probably where most of the interest in Nintendo’s IPs from third parties comes from, Hollywood film studios and television companies.
Above: Maybe not like this though.
But what do you think? Could this new IP licensing stuff have anything to do with adaptations of Nintendo franchises into other forms of media, like tie in cartoons/films/tv shows/comics/books? Or is this just going to be some sort of game only deal like it was before?
Just a quick heads up that in the next week or so, Nintendo 3DS Daily will be redesigned in a way that will hopefully make it look a bit more modern than it currently does. So in other words, it’s getting a proper responsive website design that looks like something out of the current decade rather than the late 90s.
The content however, will remain exactly the same as ever. For more information, keep reading!
