Oh boy, this should certainly be interesting to watch. Apparently, some competitors have been complaining about three time Pokemon champion Ray Rizzo and his Aegislash Pokemon, which was seemingly held in a Pokeball not usually possible to use for that Pokemon species. Or in other words, they say the Aegislash was held in a Dream Ball, an item which was exclusive to the Dream World in the fifth generation games and which isn’t possible to use on any Pokemon from the sixth generation of games (the Dream World doesn’t exist in this generation, so no Kalos Pokemon can be found there).
Ever wanted an old school style Game Boy that could play games from various old Nintendo consoles? Somehow manage to either own or have access to a 3D printer? Well if so, check out this neat tutorial video, where the instructors have managed to make their own Game Boy consoles with just a few Raspberry Pis and some other homebrew style equipment: Either way, it’s pretty impressive. Possibly worrying for Nintendo too, since they now have to worry about people ‘pirating’ the console hardware as well as the games you run on it.
Well, that’s what this video from GameExplain says. Apparently, Bonkers (a mini boss from the Kirby series), Kraid and a Kremling based boss from the Donkey Kong Country series will be present in the 3DS version’s Smash Run. So what do I think? What Kremling will the Kremling boss be based on? Find out in the full post!
And in case you’re wondering while I’m bothering to cover a Pokemon anime movie and its release in the region, just get a load of this. How long do you think it’s been since the film was released anywhere else on the planet? Come on, guess. Because if you think the delay between our favourite games getting released in Japan and them being released in other regions is kind of long, this takes the cake. Give up? Okay then. This movie was released in almost all regions bar Korea in…
Okay, it was actually held yesterday. But either way… did anyone actually even expect a Nintendo Direct for this title? Because I know I didn’t. Heck, I didn’t expect a Nintendo Direct video for just about anything in particular this soon after E3. It just seems like the whole thing came completely out of nowhere. Either way, here’s the video: So yeah, thoughts on it? I’m not really interested in it myself, but perhaps other people here might be.
Money More precisely, the fact there is none. If you’re making fan games (based on any series), ROM hacks (based on any game) or mods in general (based on any game or series), you pretty much legally cannot make a single penny off any of it.
Or more precisely, they’ve currently got ideas for new Zelda games on 3DS that they haven’t announced yet, meaning that A Link Between Worlds is not the last such title on the system. Here’s Miyamoto’s original quote, in response to a question about the future of the Zelda series and upcoming games in it: In addition to that, we have ideas for Nintendo 3DS which we have not announced yet, so I hope you will look forward to them. But while that seems clear enough, keep reading to find out the types of Zelda games I suspect Nintendo might be working on for our favourite handheld system!
This time, it’s a game called… yes, get this… Bird Jesus. And who exactly does this game (illegally) star? Pidgeot from the Pokemon series of course! And while the description of ‘Bird Jesus’ may or may not be particularly accurate when applied to this beloved Pokemon, it still doesn’t hide that the app itself is illegal and stealing a character from a Nintendo game in its desperate attempt to make money as a shoddy Flappy Bird knockoff. So yeah, guess they can expect to see a cease and desist order from Nintendo or the Pokemon Company soon enough. Good riddance.
In a raffle. That you get an entry for by spending over 1000 yen at the Denny’s and Famil family of restaurants in Japan. Apparently, there are ten of said systems to be won via the raffle, and another five to be won via an email campaign on the official website. Here’s a picture of the system design in question: As you can see, it’s a pretty nice design! Decent colour scheme, decent styling around the edges, a pretty neat picture showing off Yveltal and Xerneas (alongside Ash and Pikachu from the Pokemon anime series). Pity it’ll never be released to the public, or made available to buy or win outside of Japan. So yeah, what do you think? Are […]
It’s not entirely new (about 90% of clips in the video are found in older videos of the game), but it does seem this trailer introduces some new content. So if you want to see a preview of a Steel Diver stage, the Animal Crossing Villager riding a gyroid like a DKC rocket barrel and very small parts of what seems like an adventure mode (not smash Run), watch the video below!
