[Event] Gold Goombas Will March again in Super Mario Run


With Super Mario Run now available on both android and iOS devices, the timing couldn’t be any more perfect than to get the second Gold Goombas event underway!

 

While not much has been said in today’s forewarning notification, the event will most likely be like last time, which sees Gold Goombas appearing in the World Tour and by squishing a whole ton of them players can go on to fill out Stamp Cards and earn Gold Goomba related statues. Here’s the requirements and rewards we had to aspire too the last time the Gold Goombas were in town:

Chain Chomp 2.5″ Figure World of Nintendo Review


Kuribo reviews a figure of a classic Mario enemy and explains how you can use it for some fun displays.

NintendoFigures.com

I don’t often pick up 2.5″ figures because there are so many released and I think the 4″ figures are more interesting to own and review but occasionally something unique comes out in this size or just catches my eye.  That was the case with this Chain Chomp that I spotted in Target recently.  The price was great at $3.50 and I had a hunch that I could use this in a fun way with some of my existing figures.

Chain Chomp World of Nintendo BoxBox – This might be the first 2.5″ figure I’ve purchased that comes in the open box packaging.  These first were used at Walmart but because I don’t shop there, I’ve never actually seen them in person.  I think Jakks came up with this idea to let a child touch the toy and which in turn makes them that much more likely to beg their parents to buy it.  Not…

The Weekly Wizard: Issue #10: Should We Be Saying Goodbye to the 3DS?


Tye Dillinger
“Let’s hear it for issue number 10!”

Hello and welcome to The Weekly Wizard, the part of Miketendo64 brought to you by the nefarious outlaw responsible for Wizard Dojo, where I talk about current goings-on with Nintendo, or take a look at their past.


 

3DS

The Nintendo Switch has been out for nearly a month, and with its release and rapid success, Nintendo has almost immediately abandoned its predecessor, the Wii U. The Nintendo Switch serves as the logical evolution of Nintendo hardware, as it combines their home console output along with that of their handheld systems. Nintendo no longer needs to separate development teams between hardware divisions, and no longer needs to relegate certain franchises to certain systems.

Splatoon 2 is Data Friendly (Uses around 150mb per 1 Hour of Gameplay)


A couple of hours ago, the final event of the Splatoon 2 Global Testfire came to an end and with it ended Switch owners chance at trying out the colourful shooter.

 

But while the event is over, yesterday we got to learn something rather important indeed and that is whilst Venture Beat’s Jeff Grubb partook in one of the testfire events, during an entire hour he played, he did so whilst tethering from his phone and come the end of the session, he only used 150mb.

IGN Talk With Zelda Devs About Breath Of The Wild


IGN recently caught up with Zelda: Breath of the Wild director Hidemaro Fujibayashi, technical director Takuhiro Dohta, and art director Satoru Takizawa to talk more indepth about the development and creation of the game which brought up some very interesting comments.  Some topics that were brushed on include starting out with a small team, the 2D prototype that represents the original Legend Of Zelda on NES, creating The Great Plateau first and building the map around it afterwards, How guardians came to be and more.

Below is a summary of the interview. You can find the full article at IGN here. I would also like to point out that most of the topics that were touched upon were also discussed in Nintendo’s three-part Making Of… Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild which you can check out in one of our previous posts (Video) The Making Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild.

ARMS & 1-2 Switch Won’t be Nintendo’s Only Unique IP for Nintendo Switch


As nice as it is to have new instalments to series’ that we love, sometimes it’s nice to get an all new IP and it seems that is the case as far as the Nintendo Switch is concerned.

 

During a recent interview with a Japanese magazine, Nintendo’s own Shinya Takahashi has confirmed that ARMS and 1-2 Switch will not be the only fresh new Nintendo’s own IP we can expect to see as far as the Switch is concerned as Nintendo are “preparing one new IP straight after the other,” and that there are some titles in development already.

[Video] Reggie Promises E3 to be a BIG Year for Switch & 3DS During An Interview with Fox


Last week, Fox Gamer conducted an interview with Nintendo of America President, Reggie Fils-Aimé and while the conversation may have been a little short, it doesn’t mean what was said is small in nature.

 

So what did they discuss to name a few things, Reggie spoke about a few things such as being a Nintendo fan boy, early reaction to Switch and even how the videogames industry is so unpredictable, but the biggest thing he had to say, was when he talked about E3 2017. Not only will this year’s E3 be another event where Nintendo go all out, but Nintendo won’t solely be focusing on titles for Switch, but also the 3DS as well and purely because we can, here is Reggie’s statement regarding E3 in full followed by ta video of the interview: Continue reading [Video] Reggie Promises E3 to be a BIG Year for Switch & 3DS During An Interview with Fox

[Feature] Splatoon 2 Global Testfire First Impressions


It is Friday the 24th of March and the Splatoon 2 Global Testfire is now underway, but with the first event over, it’s time to sit back, take stock of the event and air some first impressions of colourful sequel.

So what do I think of Splatoon 2 after having played it for nearly an hour? Well, I like it, the opening tutorial features clear instructions and smooth gameplay, but that smooth gameplay soon dissipated when I tried my hand engaging in Turf Wars. Granted that could have been down to my own internet connection, but being as so others were also experiencing issues similar to myself, it’s doubtful.

[Event] Grand Hero Michalis is Ready for Battle! Are You? (Fire Emblem Heroes)


A few days ago we had the preview event, but now it is time for the real thing. The battle against Michalis has begun.

 

As always, to challenge Michalis, players will need to head over to Battle maps and select the difficulty in which they’d like to challenge him on (Hard and Lunatic.) But beating him is no easy task as not only is the battle difficult enough on Hard mode, but should a single unit fall in battle, it’s game over, so if you’re an easy battle, think again. However should you possess an army of powerful Heroes, success can be yours, and by emerging victorious on Hard mode you will of course win a 3 Michalis, but should you beat him and his friends on Lunatic mode, you will of course walk away with a 4 Michalis.
