Nintendo’s weird vision for a possible Legend of Zelda movie

No one at Nintendo is saying that there’s ever going to be a Legend of Zelda movie, certainly not after the shitball that was the Super Mario Bros movie, But if for some reason, they did greenlight a Zelda movie, Nintendo’s Eiji Aonuma has a weird, very Nintendo-like gimmicky vision of what it would look like.

E3 2013: Super Smash Bros coming to the 3DS and Wii U this fall

Today is Nintendo’s day to try and leave an impression on gamers and they’ve started out with the announcement that the popular Super Smash Bros will be coming to not just the Wii U this fall, but the 3DS. And with the new editions, there will be two new characters added to the fighting roster— the Villager from Animal Crossing and Megaman. OH FUCK YES MEGAMAN. Now if there was any other decent reason to buy a Wii U, I might consider it.


Nintendo to patch ‘bug’ that allows for same-sex couples in 3DS game

In an incredibly stupid move, the Nintendo powers that be have decided to call a virtual “same-sex” avatar option as “human relations that become strange.”

Nintendo Starts Doing It Right

It’s a degree or so chillier in hell today. Nintendo finally got their shit together and made tons of awesome announcements on this week’s Nintendo Direct.

First, that awesome looking Animal Crossing themed 3DS XL is coming to North America this summer. It will cost about $220 and will come with the new Animal Crossing game pre-installed.

Next - and this is the biggest shocker - Earthbound is coming out for Virtual Console. I never thought this would happen. Unfortunately, this will only be available to Wii U owners and won’t be on the Wii’s VC lineup, as far as I know.

A sequel to The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past was also announced. The game looks like it plays like earlier top-down Zelda games as opposed to something like Phantom Hourglass, which is a good thing in my opinion.

The world of Mario is getting two new additions, too. A third Yoshi’s Island game is coming out. This one’s got some really weird art direction, but I’m excited to see how it turns out. The other game is a new entry into the Mario & Luigi RPG series where Mario has to enter Luigi’s dreams. How Freudian.

Last but not least, Nintendo and Square-Enix will be publishing Bravely Default next year in the US.

That’s a lot of great news for one day. It’s about time, though. When the Animal Crossing 3DS launches, I might just have to pick one up. I’m still jonsing for the mint flavored one though.

Korg M01D suite dropping on Nintendo 3DS this summer

There’s already a great Korg app for the Nintendo, but this summer, a much larger, more complete, more 3D(!) music suite is coming to the Nintendo 3DS as an eShop download.


Oh hey look… Nintendo is FINALLY releasing a Pokemon game for the 3DS, ‘Pokemon X’ and ‘Pokemon Y’

Y? Why did Nintendo wait so damn long to make a Pokemon game for the 3DS? Who knows, but here’s the first trailer and announcement of Pokemon X and Y.


Check out the brand new trailer for New Super Mario Bros 2 for the 3DS

I really like the first New Super Mario Bros, and this looks fun as well, though I don’t entirely get the emphasis on coins. SO MANY COINS.


If Nintendo wants more people to buy a 3DS, they’d make this classic NES version

While sales of the Nintendo 3DS haven’t been bad, they haven’t been great either. So Nintendo comes out with garish new colors and now a larger screen, but this is what would really get people, especially those in their 30s to pony up for a 3DS— a version with the look of a classic NES.

Nintendo 3DS XL launching in August, because bigger is better

The Nintendo 3DS had a pretty slow and rocky start, but now that it’s doing fairly well, Nintendo has announced that they’ll be launching a bigger version, the 3DS XL this August. So if you like 3.5 inches, you’ll love nearly five inches.

Trailer for Mad Dog McCree on the 3DS eShop shows what’s wrong with the 3DS eShop

While it’s cool and all that Nintendo continues to offer a wide selection of games on the 3DS eShop, the problem is that iPhone and Android has made everyone expect cheap titles. How much would you pay to play this old, not very much fun video title? Eight dollars? Fuck you, Nintendo.
