Remember this image from a year or so ago? You know, the one listing the following games as coming to the Wii U sometime in future? Here’s the list again for those of us who’ve forgotten: Super Mario Wii U Metroid Zombie Yoshi’s Land Wii U FlipNote Studio Donkey Kong Wii Fit Soul Hackers Resident Evils Metal Gear Solid Final Fantasy 3 Dragon Quest 10 Well in retrospect, it seems like the list might be pretty accurate (with the potential exception of Metal Gear Solid). Super Mario Wii U? Zombie? Well, there is talk of a ZombiU follow up in the works at some point. Metroid? Nothing yet as far as I can tell, but it’s early days still. And […]
Another game that Nintendo are promoting at E3 this year is Game & Wario, a new WarioWare title that has a certain number of longer mini games and is due to be released in under a month. They’ve posted about it on the official site, sent out a press release and pack that all those news sites are going to be posting sometime in the future, and have done a bunch of other stuff… so let’s look at what’s being discussed in their official material. Are you ready for some amazing screenshots and artwork meant to promote this game? Are you? Good, because there aren’t any. Information wise, the press release and page on the E3 site gives away absolutely […]
Wow, and we thought gaming journalists couldn’t be any more arrogant or short sighted. Here’s part of their preview for Super Mario 3D World: By name alone, one can surmise that Super Mario 3D World is a sequel to the 3DS’s 3D Land. It’s so similar, in fact, that it arouses suspicions that it was once a 3DS sequel, quickly diverted for release on Wii U with the understanding that Nintendo’s flagging console needed a Mario game, and quickly. We saw plenty of examples of asset and idea recycling from its 3DS predecessor, including the exclamation mark boxes that teleport the player between stage sections, during our time with the game. So let’s get this straight… it uses some ideas and assets […]
He’s being very vague, but he does say that the Triforce Hunt wasn’t done that well and that Nintendo are making tweaks to make the game not feel rushed towards ending and make the player feel a sense of accomplishment when they get there. See here: So does that mean they’re going to be adding a cut dungeon or some new content towards the end of the game? Because it sounds a bit like it to me, so I’m optimistic this is going to be the case. What do you think?
Shown during the Nintendo Direct today, here is the new trailer for the upcoming Wii U title from critically acclaimed Xenoblade developers Monolith Soft; X. Just as Xenoblade pushed the boundaries of the Wii’s capabilities, X looks to do the same for its successor. This, The Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta 2 prove that Nintendo are still in the game when it comes to third-party exclusives, and although these titles don’t have huge mainstream appeal, their quality is guaranteed. What do you think of the mech-laden, visually stunning RPG? Source(s): Nintendo
Not satisfied after hospitalising each and every Nintendo and/or Mega Man fan on the planet, Nintendo have uploaded an exclusive look at the new Super Smash Bros. game for 3DS and Wii U through a ‘developer direct’. As you can see the video provides a more detailed look at both versions of the game. Excellent footage, and I really would like to see more of these ‘Developer Direct’s in the future. The video also confirms Wii Fit trainer as a playable character. A highly unusual choice, albeit one that proves to be oddly amusing. Judge for yourselves. Source(s): Nintendo
Following a batch of screenshots for the game’s Wii U counterpart, Nintendo have released a similarly generous dollop of optical treats, or screenshots if you want to give them their formal name, for the 3DS version. Feast your eyes! Source(s): IGN
Despite being absent from today’s Direct, Nintendo have treated us with some more Pikmin 3 goodness! First, a new trailer; Secondly, some excellent new screenshots, showing off more of the new multiplayer mode. Pikmn 3 is crash-landing on July 26th in the UK and on August 4th in the US.

Well, a ton of people had already predicted it was coming, but today’s Pokemon X and Y trailer has confirmed it; there is a new Fairy type in Pokemon X and Y and it will be retroactively applied to any fairy like Pokemon. Here’s a screen showing the announcement: And here are some Pokemon which will now be Fairy Type: So there we have it people, the whole elemental rock paper scissors system will be drastically overhauled in this one, with at least one new introduced to the mix! And who knows, perhaps we’ll even see another few new types added to spruce up the gameplay!
But this time, it seems like it’s pretty much the ultimate Mario game ever. Had any issues with 3D Land? They seem to be completely gone in this one. For one thing, the worlds look a whole lot bigger and more open than they did before. So while that’s not a confirmation of any Mario 64 like open world structure, it is at least better than the somewhat tunnel like levels from 3D Land. The real big addition though? Four player co-op Wait, I forgot something… Princess Peach is now a playable character! Oh yes, in just one announcement, Nintendo have managed to completely shake up the traditional Mario plotline, introduce four player co-op to the 3D Mario game series […]
