Ever wondered why Nintendo locked away Hero Mode in the Legend of Zelda A Link Between Worlds, keeping it until you’ve beaten the main quest before making it accessible? Well, Eiji Aonuma has answered this question himself, with the reason being one simple sentence: We felt that it was more suitable to have the players first enjoy the game at an appropriate difficulty level and then let them try a harder challenge. So in other words, because it’s new. But what do I think about this? Read on to find out!
Right in the intro too, since upon starting up the game you apparently get a screen asking whether you want to ‘share gameplay data with Nintendo’ to ‘improve future games’. Is that a good thing? A bad thing? Find out my thoughts on this (as well as what the screen actually looks like) in the full article!
Lots of interesting media here too, like some of the great photos, wallpapers and other things posted after the break. So if you’re interested in Yoshi’s New Island, click through to see some of the neat things Nintendo’s posted on their new official website for the game!
It’s a pretty amusing video too, so click the read more link and watch it for yourself. Especially if you like seeing the ever more traumatic childhood of Mario and Luigi, who have officially gone from ‘fairly unlucky’ to ‘probably need lots of counselling by this point’.
They mostly show content found in the videos posted here earlier today, but they’re pretty nice looking regardless. So head inside if you want to see a whole bunch more screenshots and pieces of artwork of this upcoming game…
Thanks to NintenDaan on Youtube and Nintendo World Report, there are now a ton of new videos about the game with up to 20 minutes of new level footage! So if you want to see the level/boss videos for yourself, keep reading the full post…
It’s probably not something most people will miss (when the hell was the last time you ever used this service on your 3DS console?), but it’s shutting down regardless. Nintendo Video will be taken off the air (so to speak) in Japan and Europe on March 31st, So if you want to watch any more videos on the service, you have just one month left to do so before the whole thing gets shut off for good.
As anyone remotely dedicated Pokemon fan now knows, the new event Pokemon Diancie has recently been confirmed as a Pokemon X and Y species, with Nintendo themselves actually putting up information about it on the official site. But now, we’ve got even more cool stuff to show you! Yep, someone’s hacked the game and found both the Mystery Gift event caused by this Pokemon and also what it’s signature attack looks like! So keep reading for more details…
Yeah, if you don’t already have an extremely bad feeling about this title… well, you probably will when you hear about some of the latest information in regards to the game. Like the oh so convenient use of gyro controls for things like helicopter and mole tank sections. Or the actual talk of a ‘tutorial’. So how bad does this game potentially get? Keep reading to find out!
Which is pretty good all things considering, especially given how well it’s been doing since then. But yes, the original 3DS was released in Japan on exactly this day (February 26th) three years ago in 2011.
