Super Mario Odyssey – Can it continue the success of the latest Pokemon and Zelda titles?

3183167-supermarioodyssey_newdonkcitygameplay_20170118

The Nintendo Switch has launched to great success, alongside The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild being the one of the highest rated, and one of most successful Zelda games of all time, despite it being much different than previous entries in the series. Some call it a breath of fresh air for the franchise, I am inclined to agree. Recently back in November, Nintendo also released the last big game for the 3ds, Pokemon Sun and Moon. Another one of their huge franchises that also saw a huge degree change. Not in the core gameplay itself, but how you play the game, gone were the gyms fans had grown used to, instead replaced with trials usually involving some puzzle with a Pokemon boss fight at the end of them. Sun and Moon also saw a greater degree of focus on it’s narrative, making the game feel like it had a sense of community and actual growth in the characters. Pokemon Sun and Moon is also the fastest selling game on the 3ds, it’ll likely soon overtake Pokemon X and Y in sales.

That brings us to, Super Mario Odyssey, that’ll be launching this fall on the Nintendo Switch. It also seems to be taking somewhat of risk with it’s presentation and style, being a truly open world sandbox platformer for gamers to play in. Although it seems to retain the basic plot structure of Bowser either kidnaps Peach, wants to takeover world, kingdom, galaxy, etc. Some of the gameplay elements seem similar as well, with tradition of the big 3d Mario games. But something feels fresh within in it from what I have seen, similar to the changes brought to the Zelda and Pokemon series. Nintendo seems to going in a new direction for how they make their old franchises, and is even starting to make new IPs again with titles such as Splatoon and Arms. From what we have seen and heard about Mario’s latest adventure so far, I believe it’ll carry on the success they have seen in their games recently, likely being the biggest game to come out on the Switch this year. Hopefully it lives up to this new standard Nintendo has brought out, as the Mario series has been mostly stagnant for several years, the last truly good and innovative entry being Super Mario Galaxy, but I have faith in Super Mario Odyssey, and I will review it when it comes out this holiday season.

WWE x Super Smash Bros. Mashup is all Kinds of Freaky and Disturbing

WWESmash

For a long time now the ability to create your own WWE wrestler has been a staple in the WWE games. Not to be content with making their own generic wrestlers, for years fans have been creating all kinds of wacky characters, even those of other franchises. Case in point, this odd and disturbing video mash up for WWE 2K14, featuring some of the cast of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Prepare to never look at Pikachu and Pac Man the same way ever again…ever!

You can blame Youtuber madagascaran for this.

Nintendo Announces New Titles! (Hopes For Profit)

Nintendo Wii U - PLAY TOGETHER COMMERCIAL

A little late to the punch but Nintendo President Satoru Iwata announced several new Nintendo titles releasing for the Wii-U and 3DS consoles. In case you missed it, here’s a Full WrapUp of the Nintendo Direct. Below I have listed the titles along with a brief description:

Bravely Default

First time being released state side and as of right now it is solely releasing for Nintendo 3DS, for those not familiar with this oddly named title it is developed by Square Enix being the game is the soul successor to Final Fantasy: The Four Heroes of Light. This is going to be a great hit for any JRPG fan who owns a 3DS.

funky kong

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

After the success of the 2010 donkey Kong returns on Wii (later on 3DS) Retro Studios has announced their newest game coming to the Wii U (and most likely 3DS) featuring the return of their entire Donkey Kong team, according to Retro Studios this will be their most challenging game.

Hyrule Warriors (working title)

To all the Nintendo fanboys out there I have one word to catch your interest: Zelda. Well more like Zelda meets Dynasty Warriors… being developed by Nintendo alongside Tecmo Koei. This looks to be a game that might hold over Zelda fans over until the next chapter in the series releases. Based of what I got to see of the game, it shows off Link battling hordes of enemies, though Nintendo and Tecmo Koei have stated there will be more playable characters hence Hyrule in the working title.

Kirby Triple Deluxe

The pink puff ball makes his return! (Without yarn this time… yarn is not epic) This time bringing in a new story, a new ability that allows him to suck in the screen and a new 4 brawler mode resembling smash bros. Taking a few cues from Donkey Kong Country Returns Kirby will now venture levels and solve puzzles in the main platform level as well as the backgrounds of levels.

Mario Kart 8 Nintendo Direct

Mario Kart 8

Look yet another Mario game! Can’t imagine why Nntendo is having financial issues with games this original… anyways; Mario is returning to the track along with a slew of other Nintendo characters!  Being developed for Wii U, Nintendo will be continuing implementing ideas featured in the 3DS game Mario Kart 7 such as bikes and gliders. From the looks it seems like Nintendo is still showing off their abilities to make unique and innovative tracks.

NES Remix

The title explains the basis of the game, a remix of classic Nintendo titles. It’s only going to cost $15 on the Nintendo E-Shop, which isn’t that bad of a deal considering you get to play these great classic games like Donkey Kong Country (you know when Nintendo was in their prime) with some remixes to pull some old school gamers back in, one of the examples Nintendo gave was the ability to play as Link from Zelda in Donkey Kong (Awesome!). Nintendo promises many awesome remixes in this promising title.

Super Smash Bros. (New characters)

As every Nintendo fan knows Super Smash Bros. will be releasing next year on both 3DS and Wii U so I won’t go into the game details. Nintendo announces 2 New characters being added to the fighting line-up: Rosalina from Super Mario Galaxy and the mighty star Luma. Seems like this new Smash Bros. title may have the strongest line up yet… maybe.

Yoshi’s New Island

Bringing story book graphics to introduce new players to Yoshi’s Island the brief teaser trailer still showed very Super Ninteno-ish style gameplay for old school Yoshi Island fans to recognize. Being added to the Nintendo “New” Mario line up similar to “New Super Mario Bros” released a few years ago. This may be the promising title recently announced by Nintendo.

Nintendo Direct December 18th, 2013 [Full WrapUp]

ndirect

From 9 AM – 9:36 AM EST this morning, Nintendo held their most recent Nintendo Direct covering both the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Wii U.

3DS News

Kirby Triple Deluxe is the newest Kirby title and follows a similar formula to that of the series with 20 different powerups as well as a new ability, called Nova, that allows you to suck things in with intense power to create new paths. The game will have you travelling between the foreground and background and your enemies will be too. The game features a 4 player multiplayer combat mode and a rhythm minigame entitled Dedede’s Drum Dash. The game is due out in Spring of this coming year.

Yoshi’s New Island is the third Yoshi’s Island title, and is being directed by the same person who directed the original. It features a 3D graphical appearance on a 2D plain. It retains the same original formula as the SNES and DS titles but adds the large enemies creating large eggs and adding a “Mega Mario”-style portion to game play, destroying blockades and gaining extra lives using the larger than normal egg. The game is also due out in Spring of 2014.

Chibi Robo is back! After a long hiatus since the Nintendo Gamecube, the little robot is back in a downloadable title for the 3DS entitled Chibi Robo Photo Finder. The means of completing this game is by taking photos of things in real life for the Nostalgia Museum in-game. The game offers you shapes of objects and you find something to fit the shape. The trailer showed electrical outlets, baseballs and toilet paper as objects. As well, you will have to complete side quests for new characters through exploration and mini games. The game will be featuring community events and will start shortly after launch. The full game releases January 9th, 2014 with a demo releasing a little before launch.

More info regarding Poketransfer and Pokemon Bank is revealed. Pokemon Bank is the (paid) software that allows you to store up to 3000 Pokemon from the newest set of titles in the series (X and Y). Poketransfer, instead allows you to transfer and battle all your Pokemon from Black & White’s two separate titles (the first and second of each colour) in X and Y. Both are available December 27th. A free trial is available from launch to January 31st and anyone who accesses the application from launch until September of 2014 will be given Celebi whether or not you use the full or trial version, which I believe is the first time it has been offered to North America unless you had a cheating device.

Bravely Default was announced by Reggie Fils-Aime. It is a turn-based RPG, where the game offers a new way of powering your in-game self with Sleep Points, which offers you points based on how long you keep the system in sleep mode while having Bravely Default running. However, if you decide you can’t wait for SP, you can purchase them through a microtransaction (very disappointing that Nintendo has stooped that low, personally). SP allow you to get more powerful equipment, heal or revive followers or deal more than the highest attack cap in regular play. The game also has a Street Pass feature that allows you to summon people you have passed by while running the game in Sleep Mode, which is a cool touch. The demo, which is a separate story of the game releases January 2nd, 2014, with the full game releasing February 7th, 2014.

Wii U News

At the beginning of the Nintendo Direct, before 3DS was shown, we were shown gameplay for a cross-over title between Tecmo-Koei’s Warriors series and Nintendo’s Zelda series for a game with the working title “Hyrule Warriors”. The game is a hack and slash title, which is non-canon to the Zelda series. It looks like it will provide gamers a thing to play while waiting for the Wii U canonical Zelda as well as give options to people who do not enjoy Zelda as an adventure game. The game is set for release next year, with no set month or date given.

More gameplay of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is shown, with Donkey Kong and his three other partners: Diddy, Dixie and Cranky Kong, with each having unique abilities and the tag team special move, which is gained every 100 bananas collected. Diddy’s tag move turns all enemies into balloons, Dixie’s into gold hearts and Cranky’s into gold coins. The game is available February 21st, 2014.

Nintendo announced more content for Wii Sports Club, the remake of Wii Sports for Wii U. They now announced golf, retaining the original Wii course as well as a new one. They also announced you have a thirty day trial to the whole game including golf, which is officially released after the completion of Nintendo Direct (9:45 AM EST today)

Next Nintendo showed NES Remix, which melds gameplay from 16 NES titles into a WarioWare style game with new elements for each game. The game is also available as of now and is selling for $15.

Sega released one new FREE downloadable item for Sonic Lost World based on Yoshi’s Island and is available today. The gameplay shows art style of Yoshi’s Island and all the elements of the games mixed with Sonic’s gameplay. There is also one more DLC in the works but no details were shown. Check out our Sonic Lost World review here!

Unveiled next for Year of Luigi is Dr Luigi. Dr Luigi is a new downloadable title which takes the original Dr Mario, with an addition of a new mode with L shaped pill blocks. The game retains the same feel as the original and the WiiWare titles, with inclusion of a multiplayer mode but also adds this new game mode and the off screen mode that is your “pill bottle” or play screen as opposed to being on the television. It is set for release on New Year’s Eve, December 31st, 2013.

Lastly, we were revealed a new character for Super Smash Bros for 3DS and WiiU. That character was Rosalina, who is accompanied by Luma. No further details were given about Smash Bros, but rumours push towards a Spring/Summer 2014 release.

If you wish to see the gameplay for yourself, Nintendo Direct is available at http://www.nintendo.com/nintendo-direct/archive/12-18-2013/.

Nintendo reports first ever annual loss for FY2012, 3DS sells 17.13 million to date

According to analysis by VG247 on GameKicker Nintendo’s official financial report is a record of their first annual loss occurring during the year 2012. The official sales of the 3DS to date are also in for debating. See the full info below:

“Nintendo has reports its first ever annual loss at a net loss of ¥43.2 billion, a lower than expected figure compared to what was previously predicted.

Total sales of Nintendo 3DS during FY2012 were 13.53 million, with software at 36 million. LTD, 3DS sales are now at 17.13 million, with software at 45.4 million units.

The vanilla DS line – DS, DS Lite, DSi and DSi XL – sold 5.1 million hardware units and 60.82 million software units. In its lifespan, the line has sold 151.52 million units combined and 900.31 million units in software.

For Wii, Nintendo reported hardware sales of 9.84 million units in the FY with software at 102.37 million. Lifetime to date, Wii’s now sold 95.85 million units and 818.46 million software units.

For FY2013, Nintendo has predicted it will stop selling 3DS “below cost” by the middle of the fiscal year – around September – and expects to make a profit on each unit sold by then. It follows a massive price-cut for the system last August that was put in place to boost flagging sales of the handheld.

Its predicted hardware sales of 18.5 million and 73 million software for 3DS in the next 12 months.

Following up on those, Nintendo has big releases planned for the year ahead, including New Super Mario Bros 2 for 3DS in August, Animal Crossing for 3DS this fall, Brain Age 3DS this summer in Japan

You Know You Were Thinking It!

This is a new section I will be doing to expose those hidden thoughts that are in the back of every gamer’s mind. You know you were thinking it!

1. Why does Princess Peach always need to be rescued? After all, the moves she has in various Mario games shows she’s capable of defending herself!

2. Was I the only person to think that Link was actually named Zelda? Talk about confused.

3. Will Sonic The Hedgehog ever die? It’s like the Energizer battery he keeps going and going.

 

4. Where is Shenmue 3?

5. How Many Mushrooms Can One Man Eat? aka Mario?

6. Did Dom from Gears of War go to Heaven or Hell?

7. Killer Instinct reboot? I hope and pray.

8.How many cakes can a Fat Princess eat?

9. Did MW3 steal all the Zombie’s glory? Uh oh, Zombie Revenge is imminent, or is it just DLC? Just kidding.

10. Finally, wouldn’t it be cool if Cat Women and Ryu from Ninja Gaiden shared a game together? Claws and Heads would be flying. Priceless.
