Nintendo Open to NES Remix including third party games and GBA/SNES titles…

So if you’re interested in seeing an equivalent to NES Remix involving third party games like Mega Man, Castlevania and Contra, or one for the SNES era with Donkey Kong Country, Kirby Super Star and Yoshi’s Island being included, then send Nintendo your feedback to show interest in the idea. Me though?  I don’t think any of these are a good idea, because I don’t think NES Remix itself is a good idea.  What I want is…

The 3DS isn’t powerful enough for NES Remix 2?

Well, that’s roughly why Nintendo are saying the game wasn’t released for said system.  They actually argue that ‘it’d require more machine power’ than the 3DS is supposedly capable of. Here’s their quote: But, if you step into the shadows a bit more, in order to accomplish what we wanted with NES Remix, and get the effect we wanted out of it and the value that we wanted it to have, we needed some more machine power. It’s just that the Wii U had the machine power we were looking for in order for us to build the software we envisioned from the get go But what do I think about this?  Well, I’ll put it this way… I don’t […]

I think Ubisoft’s Ambitions for Watch Dogs are a bit high…

They seriously think this game will be as big as Call of Duty or FIFA.  Which if you don’t know the obvious, are two of the biggest third party franchises of all time, selling many millions of copies per installment (FIFA has sold over 100 million games total and Call of Duty has sold more than past til 2011 alone). Unfortunately, I’d like to give Ubisoft a nice reality check.

Skylanders could have been a Nintendo series?

Yes, it’s really true!  Back when the first game in this popular franchise was being developed, Activision wanted to team up with another game to make it, with their first choice being Nintendo! Unfortunately though, despite some help with marketing and interest in the concept, Nintendo turned down the offer to work with Activision on the series.  Talk about a missed opportunity!

So for those European Nintendo fans out there who want to hear the game’s music in some ‘official’ way, there you go.  You can find Nintendo’s Tweet on the matter in the full post after the break. My opinion though?  Don’t really see much point in getting this CD.  Not only do I not plan to buy a Wii U (and this game, among others) until Smash Bros comes out, but the entire soundtrack can be gotten far conveniently with this magical thing called the ‘internet’ and ‘Youtube’. But if you want to see what Nintendo has to say on the matter (officially) or to see it on the Club Nintendo store, keep reading!
