It is the 30th of June, which actually means quite a lot as Nintendo have quite a few games releasing. There is new dlc coming/out. There’s new updates and a Miiverse Community is closing, but which one? You’ll have to scroll down to find out, because first we’re starting with releases.
Minecraft: Wii U Edition (Wii U)
Both Japan and North America got their physical release of Minecraft this month and now those in Europe will be able to get theirs, so if you are in Europe and you put off getting the game from the eShop, but did want to get it, no longer will you have to deny yourself.
Shovel Knight (Wii U & 3DS)
The adventures of Shovel Knight for a long time have been absent from Wii U and the 3DS in, but no more Nintendo and Yacht Club Games cry, as today is the day Shovel Knight gets its Japanese release on Nintendo consoles. Also available is the Shovel Knight amiibo.
Midnight 2 (Wii U eShop)
One week shy of two months, Europe is finally getting Midnight 2, after North America got it way back, near the start of May. If you’re a fan of games that are puzzle based and require you to guide Midnight through a series of levels, then this just might be a game for you.
Ziggurat (Wii U eShop)
Also for Europe from the eShop is Ziggurat, a first-person dungeon-crawling that’s packed full of combat, enemies and spells. There’s even traps, bosses and carrots. Yup carrots! Are you ready to be a neophyte sorcerer and undergo your rite of passage?
BoxBoxBoy! (3DS eShop)
Out in the eShop for Europe and North America is the sequel to BoxBoy! BoxBoxBoy and this time there is a lot going on! 120 new levels to play. Medals to collect. New costumes to buy and anyone who voyaged with Qbby on the last outing and got a lot of costumes in the process, you’ll actually be able to use them in this one too!
Miitomo (iOS & Android)
16 countries have received it already and now for anyone in the likes of Mexico, South Africa and Switzerland, will be able to download the app for themselves straight from the Google Play Store/App Store. Do you think you know your friends? It’s time to find out!
That’s as far as we’re going to go on releases, now it’s time for dlc and I know just the game to cover.
Link’s Awakening DLC (Wii U & 3DS)
Today is the day to add Marin to your line-up of Warriors as the new Link’s Awakening dlc is out and yes the Wii U version doesn’t get any of the new clothes, or the new Koholint Map, but it does get a new weapon for Linkle and Marin, so you can’t complain you didn’t get anything at all. Now the dlc has yet to release in Europe and North America at this time of typing, but it is out in Japan so now we must wait.
Moving on to Updates, we’re just going to keep this purely about Miitomo and version 1.30:
Miitomo version 1.30 (iOS & Android)
Out now for both iOS and Android devices is the latest update for Miitomo, which has the following for North America and Europe: (Japan also has the following, except users with Japan set as their region can now be visited by Star Accounts.)
*Added options to share images and answers (via WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.)
*A conversation menu will now be displayed when talking to a Mii.
*A question of the day will now be displayed in the recent activity tab.
*Daily bonus progress can now be checked at any time.
*Implemented bug fixes and speed optimizations.
Last topic of discussion, the closure of a certain Miiverse Community.
Nintendo @E3 2016 Miiverse Community
We all knew it was only temporary, but the Nintendo @E3 2016 community is ending today, so if you were going to head over there to post or comment one more thing, only to find out you can’t, now you know why. Here’s Tom and the full announcement:
Well that’s all the big Nintendo goings on today, will you be picking up one of the new games? Or catch up with an old friend as Marin is given a new lease of life in Hyrule Warriors?
