Which is pretty overdue to be honest, since the guy’s a boxer. You’d think that’d make him one of the first Nintendo characters Sakurai would want to include in a Super Smash Bros title. Either way, he’s finally been confirmed as a playable character in Super Smash Bros 4, putting him alongside Wii Fit Trainer, Villager, Mega Man and Rosalina in the elite ‘new characters club’. Want to see him in action? Keep reading to see his official artwork and debut trailer!
Because supposed ‘leaks’ showing her as a fighter in the game have surfaced, and actually seem to be quite believable! Step inside (or look at the thumbnail next to this post) to see them for yourself, and read what I have to say on the matter after the jump.
Worried the next Super Smash Bros game was going to be delayed like so many others by Nintendo? Desperately wanting the game in your possession by the upcoming year? Well if so, it seems you should be in luck, since Masahiro Sakurai himself has actually stated that he ‘resolves to complete development of the new Super Smash Bros games and release them in 2014′.
Because as we all know, someone’s selling Super Smash Bros for Wii U more than a year before its release date with an obviously fan made box art design isn’t suspicious at all, right? Oh wait, that’s not technically it. Oh no, look at the auction title in the below picture carefully: He’s not offering the game for that price. He’s trying to sell a PRE-ORDER for the game for 99 dollars. So for your hard earned cash (and a likely bidding war with bots and random strangers on eBay), you basically get a tiny slip of paper saying you have the right to buy the game when it comes out two or more years from now. What an amazing […]
As you most likely now know, Nintendo has announced a new Nintendo Direct for tomorrow (the 1st of October 2013). It’ll be covering new Wii U and 3DS games and will presumably focus on those that are being released before the end of the year. So as per the norm, here are my predictions for what we’ll see. Don’t take them as utter gospel (because I have no insider sources or prior knowledge) and don’t be surprised if some turn out to be incorrect, but enjoy them regardless.
As far as marketing and advertising goes, it’s fairly well known that the Wii U’s not been doing particularly well. Sales have been low, commercials have mostly been the same old boring ‘family plays games’ thing that appeals to absolutely no one in particularly and all in all, it seems like Nintendo wasn’t focusing on the games enough. But with this awesome new Wii U games trailer, it seems like that may be about to change. Featuring such upcoming blockbuster titles as Super Smash Bros 4, Mario Kart 8 and Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, it actually shows the kind of thing people actually want to see on a new system; the games. Here it is: It also makes the […]
Just earlier today, Reggie Fils-Aime from Nintendo stopped by the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon studio to answer various questions about Nintendo that fans had put to him by Twitter. And the official Youtube channel uploaded a video of this, which can be found here: So what exactly did he say? Let’s find out, with my fan made transcript of the interview: Question 1: How much third-party support can we expect from the Wii U for the rest of the year? Third party support for the Wii U. The great news is that we have a ton of great third-party support coming, from Disney, from Activision, from Ubisoft. Great games like Watchdogs, like Infinity, like Skylanders. All of those great […]
Over the last few Nintendo Directs and E3, Nintendo has revealed quite a lot of interesting games that are going to be released within the next few years. But which ones am I personally most and least excited for? Find out in this article! Here are the upcoming Nintendo games I’m most and least excited for. Most Excited For Super Smash Bros 4 You really need me to say why I’m excited for Super Smash Bros 4? Heck, I even set up a new website… and am setting up a new forum dedicated to the game because I think it’s going to be that damn amazing. http://supersmashbros4.com http://supersmashbrosforums.com I would seriously give up nearly everything to own this game. No […]
Well, sort of, it’s in beta at the moment. But for now, it can be found here: http://supersmashbros4.com/ As you can see, it’s pretty much a news source (and soon to be forum) JUST for Super Smash Bros 4 and has things like screenshots, articles and videos. The style is inspired by the old Dojo style, but now uses open source webfonts and various other modern CSS techniques instead of the table and image heavy stuff so common back when Brawl was seen as modern. Oh, and it uses Disqus for the comments. Perhaps I should use that on Nintendo 3DS Daily soon as well, it seems to work better than the default WordPress comment system does… So what do […]
None of these are to do with E3 or anything, since I’ve already written a decent article about my predictions here. But here are some other predictions I have for Nintendo in the next few years, based on games we know exist and that aren’t as interesting as the new Super Smash Bros or 3D Mario. Prediction 1: Game & Wario will get a bit more promotion than usual Okay, ‘more promotion than usual’ in the case of a Wario title means ‘will actually be marketed for once’ given its track record, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Nintendo went a bit further in this case. For one thing, this is pretty much their big June Wii U ‘hit’, or […]
