Today’s Nintendo Direct presentation has been relatively short, yet we’ve heard a couple of new release dates, and a totally unexpected partnership between Nintendo and SEGA! Read on for our round-up of today’s shenanigans. Continue reading
It’s hard to believe that the only Nintendo-developed titles to arrive on Wii U thus far have been New Super Mario Bros. U and Nintendo Land. Thankfully, Game & Wario is set to rectify that in little over a month’s time, with a further selection of first- and third-party titles set to arrive over the spring and summer months. Continue reading
With five months until the highly anticipated launch of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y on 3DS, Nintendo’s released plenty of new assets from the upcoming RPGs. From its US box-art to a number of brand-new Pokémon, you can find all of the new media below. Continue reading
SEGA’s released its annual financial results, including its forecast for the coming year, revealing that the Japanese developer and publisher has strong plans for Nintendo platforms within the next twelve months. Continue reading
It’s hard to believe, but the first Nintendo-developed Wii U game since launch titles New Super Mario Bros. U and Nintendo Land is arriving in Europe nearly seven months after the system’s release. Continue reading
Weighing in at a whopping 17,693 blocks, Monster Games’ port – which features a ‘New Mode’ catered towards handheld play – is surprisingly a larger download than Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate; with an estimated 2.16GB file size meaning owners of the original Nintendo 3DS model are required to upgrade from the bundled 2GB SD Card.
Level-5′s Professor Layton series has been an annual affair, first on DS, and now on Nintendo 3DS, for six years, with the final game in the puzzling prequel trilogy - Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy - arriving later this year.
Will we see the professor return on Nintendo 3DS next year? Unless Level-5 begins work on a new saga, or works with Nintendo to localise Professor Layton Vs. Ace Attorney, perhaps you’d like to see something a little different from Level-5 – maybe a Layton spin-off series on Wii U?
Sadly, the late 2013 release date for Azran Legacy only applies to Europe, as North American puzzle fans must wait until 2014 for their next Layton fix.
As with the Japanese bundle, it features a white system with small, coloured symbols on the exterior. It also comes with a digital copy of the game pre-installed on the bundled 4GB SD memory card.
Arriving on 9th May in Europe, the puzzle platformer will feature 180 levels in the core download, although it’ll also offer a fully-fledged level editor. Perhaps most excitingly, though, you’ll be able to upload your creations for others to enjoy, while downloading others’ masterpieces – presumably via an in-game store hosting user-generated content – will undoubtedly extend the game’s lifespan immeasurably.
Today, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata revealed that Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros. will be arriving at retail and via the Nintendo eShop on 12th July.
