Just like the other major Nintendo games of recent years, pre-ordering Link Between Worlds with GAME (a large UK video game retailer which acts like Gamestop in the US) will get you a free gift. This time though, it’s a musical treasure chest! Yeah, a neat little chest that you can open that plays the ‘found item’ theme from the Zelda series!
Is this finally the time for 3DS hacking? Maybe, since this individual on Youtube has apparently figured out how to run unsigned code on the system and open it up to various other things. Here’s the video: So that’s some video ‘proof’ of the whole concept for you all. But with that said, you’re probably wondering what I think of it, right?
Well, it’s been a while coming now, but I’ve finally reached the level cap in the game, getting to the point where no more experience is counted and where no more levels can be gained. Here are some screenshots showing Mario and Luigi’s stats at this point: As you can see, I’ve not exactly maxed out the stats yet (assuming 999 is the point that happens), but I think the stats are decent enough so far. They can still kill the final boss in one hit… Here are some other screens showing said stats/levels… As you can tell, I did all this on Hard Mode. And here’s the stats from the ending. Not great (the Excellent rate could be so […]
Again, thanks to Youtube user NiNTENDOMiNATi0N for uploading and posting these, since they look pretty damn good. First up, here’s a mine cart style sequence that has you collecting coins. It’s a bit bland at this moment in time, but I assume that’s just because it’s an early part of the game and is prior to the point this gameplay mechanic actually gets used to its fullest potential. Next up, a battle: It’s not a particularly fancy looking battle (because you’re fighting just one weak Goomba variant), but it does seem to work much the same way as the rest of the Mario & Luigi series. And hey, the music in both the outside world and battle itself is very […]
Thanks to Game Explain, here’s footage of the eight new levels in Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, the ones accessible in the new ‘Cloud Gateway’ world prior to the Golden Temple: As you can see, they look pretty challenging with some clever new level design ideas, but perhaps not on their own worth spending the money on this version of the game for. I did especially like all the clever ideas from the Forest level with the walls you can cling to and what not though. So there you have it, footage of all the new levels in Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. Is this enough to buy the game again for? What do you think?
Missed one of the Nintendo Direct presentations today? Well just watch them all below, and you’ll be fine. Full Japanese Nintendo Direct Video Full US Nintendo Direct Video Full European Nintendo Direct Video Hope that helps everyone get up to speed on what announcements were made today and what games were discussed in each Nintendo Direct video.
Well, it’s been known for quite a while, but now they’ve officially released a video showing Mewtwo transforming into its new forme: So there you go, there’s cast iron evidence that this ‘mysterious new Pokemon’ is in fact a new Mewtwo form.
Nintendo’s official site for the game has just been updated, so now we know all about the last few mini games and what not as well as the ones we’ve already seen. Additionally, NintenDaan on Youtube has uploaded some videos of each of the games, so there’s also now footage of every single aspect of this title. So here it all is. Official Art: Wario Mona Mike Orbulon Pirate Wario Kat and Ana Nine Volt and Eighteen Volt Young Cricket and Master Mantis Jimmy T Dr Crygor Fronk Dribble and Spitz Ashley and Red Penny Crygor Pyoro Everyone And that’s pretty much the entire cast list. Now for some screens of all the newer mini games (not counting […]
Thanks to Game Explain, we now have a nice video showing what the final boss, ending and credits of Luigi’s Mansion Dark Moon are like. Yes, there are obviously spoilers, so don’t watch the video if you don’t want to see any. Are you ready yet? Above: These pictures are only here to push the video past the ‘fold’ and make sure it doesn’t appear on the home page. How about now? Okay, here’s the video: Again, you were warned and given plenty of time to avoid watching it if you didn’t want to, so don’t go off complaining to us about having the game ruined. So what’s it like? Here’s a summary (done entirely as a spoiler so […]
The game’s now out in Japan, and Nintendomination on Youtube has now uploaded a video with the first 30 minutes or so of footage from the game. Here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhZ1Z4M9hc8 As you can see, the game seems to start out much as you’d expect. Bit of exposition at the start letting you know what’s going on with the Dark Moon and what not (albeit in Japanese due to what version of the game this is), and then it’s off to Gloomy Manor for the first mission and Luigi’s retrieval of the Poltergust. It’s a nice look at the first mission and set up for the game, so you should definitely watch the video. What do you think about what […]
