Splatoon 2 Nintendo Direct

IMG_7319

“The special Nintendo Direct presentation highlighted many of the game’s new features, new weapons, new locations and, most importantly for all the fashion-forward cephalopods out there, its fresh new styles. The video also touched on SplatNet 2, the new service for mobile devices that displays information about Splatoon 2 like stage schedules, gear and stats. SplatNet 2 is part of the Nintendo Switch Online mobile app launching on July 21, which lets players send multiplayer invites to their friends via social media, as well as enables the use of voice chat in battles.”

Switch is Nintendo’s Chance to Redeem the Mario Party Franchise

Nintendo Switch - Mario Party 11 - Mario Party 3 - RealGamerNewZ

We aren’t going to see a GameCube mini classic edition come out anytime soon, so let’s get Luigi’s Mansion, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader and some more N64 content on Virtual Console. There are tons of games on GameCube. I feel like it’s really one of the biggest games in Nintendo history.

Thank you everyone who tuned into my Crash Bandicoot Livestream today, by the way. It’s always appreciated!

Nintendo Switch - Star Wars Rogue Squadron II Rogue Leader - GameCube VC Virtual Console 2017

Nintendo must understand that the Switch NEEDS “A GOOD” Mario Party 11, “A SOLID” Smash Bros. entry, “A GOOD” Virtual Console. We also need some new tracks for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, perhaps some light DLC, perhaps for its Battle Mode. Star Fox 2 being included on the SNES Mini as well as the quality of the overall lineup in general give the gaming industry hope that Nintendo is getting even greater at what they do despite past criticisms.

Nintendo is just sitting on a gold mine with excellent mini-game concepts going unused from Mario Party 1, 2, 3, Game & Watch, Warioware, etc. and I fear the legacy of Mario Party as a franchise is in danger after the release of Mario Party 10 didn’t quite fit the bill. This opportunity is a huge chance for Nintendo to prove this trend of success with Switch and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is in fact not a fluke and that they are back on track to giving gamers what they love most. Now is the chance to redeem Mario Party and show fans you know how to treat their beloved franchises.

Until next time this is Josh Ehresmann AKA YodaThe3rd your RealGamerNewZ Public Relations Editor signing off.

New Adventures Coming to the Nintendo 3DS Family

unnamed (3)

As we all know, the Nintendo 3ds is still going strong with a great lineup of titles coming it’s way. Nintendo made a sorta sizzle reel trailer for future titles hitting the platform. Games like Metroid Samus Returns, Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, Mario and Luigi Superstar Sage/Bowser’s Minons, and much more.

“Thumper is rhythm violence: classic rhythm-action, blistering speed, and brutal physicality. You are a space beetle. Brave the hellish void and confront your nemesis: a maniacal giant head.”

NoA2_Arshe

KOEI TECMO has announced a standalone sequel to the Night of Azure, Night of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon. The game will be coming to PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Steam. It’ll release in the west on October 24th 2017.

Here is KOEI TECMO’s description of the title below.

“Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon takes place in a fictional, demon-ridden Western European city towards the end of the 19th century. The story focuses on a knight protector named Alushe and her two childhood friends Liliana, a kind-hearted priestess, and Ruhenheid, a holy knight of the Lourdes Order. While guarding Liliana, Alushe is ambushed and killed only to later awaken as an artificial half-demon at the hands of the New Curia, a religious organization with dark ties. In the company of a variety of unlikely allies with their own pasts and agendas, Alushes strong desire to save Liliana gives her the strength to scatter the shadows shrouding the world and motivation to uncover the shocking truth behind the mysterious Queen of the Moon.”

Stay tuned for more news on Nights of Azure 2 in the coming months, and everything KOEI TECMO here at RealGamerNewz. Real news, for real gamers.

The UK version of the eShop store has given us a look at how big the file size for Splatoon 2 is going to be. It appears it’ll be about 3.1 GB which is a bit smaller than I expected. It appears Nintendo has mastered compression with their titles. Splatoon 2 comes out on July 21st only on Nintendo Switch.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – The Master Trials Review

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – The Master Trials DLC is the first DLC apart of the Expansion Pass. It is more of a simple DLC, giving you some armor and weapons, but the main draw here is the new Master Mode and The Trial of the Sword challenge mode. The question is, is it worth the asking price?

Now the main draw is the Trial of the Sword. Which can be described as one of the best additions I have ever seen added to a game post launch. Similar to a trial in the main game on an island, Trial of the Sword takes away all of your gear and equipment, making things tense. Although your runes do remain intact. You fight through floors of enemies, going through obstacles and challenges that can make anyone want to quit. But if you stick with it and manage to conquer the Trial of the Sword, your Master Sword will have something special happen to it. Sorry no spoilers here.

Now for some of these little side add-ons here. We have the travel medallion that allows you to make your current location a place to where you teleport to. So you need to get back to a specific area later but you don’t have the correct gear? No problem use the travel medallion. The Korok Mask allows you to see Koroks and find them easier, still won’t make me find all 900 though. Misko’s Treasure is a side quest which involves you finding all of the DLC’s outfits such as Majora’s Mask. The new armor is appreciated and I am glad you have to go on quest to find them. Hero’s Path Mode lets you see the progress you have made through the world, seeing your previous footsteps, allowing some help if you get lost. Last but not least Master Mode. Which makes the game much harder. Mixes up enemy placement, adds new enemies to the world, let’s them regenerate health, and more. The game is certainly much more of a challenge which I love.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – The Master Trials DLC is a great addition to the game. The main draw here is the Trial of the Sword, and Master Mode, which both increase re-play ability. I am fine with the rest of the additions but once you get the armor and other little add-ons there’s not much outside of that. I would hope for the next DLC to have some more meaningful story quest, but this DLC is worth it I would say. The Master Trials gets a 8 out of 10. Now bring on Splatoon 2.

This winter, games in Japan get to compete in the ARMS Grand Prix. There are no dates yet, and no word on whether westerners will get their own event or be allowed to go to Japan to compete. Regardless ARMS is shaping up to become a huge esports title for Nintendo.
