'til next time!
bluexy @ 07:30AM
I suppose that's it for today. All in all a rather uneventful Nintendo Direct, but I'm not sure what else we should expect from Nintendo at this point. Still a fun show, even if it's a little ... disconcerting in regards to content.
bluexy @ 07:29AM
There you have it folk. Animal Crossing Miiverse on Wii U, Animal Crossing Plaza available now, Luigi in Super Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS, and a couple of eShop games, release dates announced.
bluexy @ 07:28AM
No Pokemons. That's actually a huge surprise.
bluexy @ 07:27AM
IWATA HAS LEFT THE BUILDING!
bluexy @ 07:27AM
A special The Wonderful 101 Nintendo Direct August 9 at 7:00AM PT!
bluexy @ 07:27AM
Animal Crossing Plaza will be a limited service until the end of 2013 and will be available for download... today!
bluexy @ 07:26AM
"It's the year of Luigi! Luigi won't be in Super Smash Bros. Wii U." A funnier announcement in an alternate universe.
bluexy @ 07:25AM
They're showing Animal Crossing Plaza, an Animal Crossing theme for the WaraWara Plaza on Wii U. It looks... amazing! Best announcement ever.
bluexy @ 07:24AM
Oh gosh, Isabelle is too cute.
bluexy @ 07:24AM
They've decided to open a Miiverse community on the Wii U. Hmm.
bluexy @ 07:23AM
Animal Crossing: New Leaf announcement?
bluexy @ 07:23AM
One final announcement...
bluexy @ 07:23AM
An announcement about Luigi! Ah, he's in Super Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS!
bluexy @ 07:22AM
A reminder that this is the "Year of Luigi"!
bluexy @ 07:22AM
Launches this October. :( No firm release date yet.
bluexy @ 07:21AM
Even Tingle looks rather stylish.
bluexy @ 07:20AM
bluexy @ 07:20AM
Next is Wind Waker HD. @Slash's favorite game.
bluexy @ 07:19AM
Launches in November.
bluexy @ 07:19AM
Not the same main character! An entirely new Link.
bluexy @ 07:19AM
"Many years after Ganon was sealed in A Link to the Past." Takes place far in the future.
bluexy @ 07:18AM
quote ims2golfer
Professor Layton vs ace attorney is getting localized? Is this new news? :0
Hmm, I think it was previously announced.
bluexy @ 07:18AM
Same classic world as A Link to the Past, but "The Other World" is completely new.
bluexy @ 07:18AM
quote ims2golfer
I still have yet to play Miracle Mask :L
Get on that!
bluexy @ 07:17AM
The logo shows a Triforce in gold as well as a Triforce in shadow.
bluexy @ 07:17AM
The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds update first.
bluexy @ 07:17AM
Updates on two Legend of Zelda games.
bluexy @ 07:16AM
Iwata has a few other things to talk about...
bluexy @ 07:15AM
Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright also coming in 2014!
bluexy @ 07:15AM
Gah, it looks outstanding. The series has come so far over the years.
bluexy @ 07:15AM
Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy! Finally! ... in 2014. :(
bluexy @ 07:14AM
Oh and exclusive Animal Crossing items at official Nintendo Zone locations. Interesting.
bluexy @ 07:14AM
A bit of new details on Nintendo Zone StreetPassing.
bluexy @ 07:13AM
Super Mario Bros. 3 on 3DS and Wii U eShop later this year. Hooray!
bluexy @ 07:13AM
NES version of Donkey Kong also coming August 15, and Tecmo Bowl this fall. Wario Land 3 August 29.
bluexy @ 07:12AM
"Available Soon"
bluexy @ 07:12AM
Summer Carnival '92
bluexy @ 07:12AM
3DS announcements!
bluexy @ 07:11AM
Oh, and did you know there will be 18 collectible figures that will interact with the game? Launches August 29.
bluexy @ 07:11AM
All of the Pokemans in White & Black Version 2 will be available.
bluexy @ 07:11AM
Now we're moving on to Pokemon Rumble U. There's a new trailer for that on the site, by the way: http://www.neoseeker.com/news/23572-pokemon-rumble-u-gets-an-official-english-site-and-brand-new-trailer-gameplay-is-absolutely-nuts/
bluexy @ 07:10AM
Launching August 11! Expect our review soon. ;)
bluexy @ 07:09AM
Talking about badges, gear, meters and turn-based combat. Aw yeah, that's an RPG.
bluexy @ 07:08AM
Going into Mario & Luigi: Dream Team now!
bluexy @ 07:08AM
quote SolidAndHisCrew
I love Iwata, but he isn't earphone friendly at all. The ears man, think about the ears!
Iwata loves you. Don't push him away.
bluexy @ 07:08AM
The Pikmin 3 feature they're going over is... the camera. Hm, not exactly what I would have put up front.
bluexy @ 07:07AM
Iwata said he'd be back. Hopefully with presents. I love presents.
bluexy @ 07:07AM
Nintendo Treehouse taking over. Eric Peterson mentioning that Pikmin 3 is available now!
bluexy @ 07:06AM
Art Academy SketchPad launches August 9! How about that. Actually looks rather outstanding.
bluexy @ 07:05AM
Launches September 3. Next up is Art Academy SketchPad.
bluexy @ 07:05AM
Ooo, also Mario and Luigi costumes!
bluexy @ 07:04AM
All stages can be played with up to five players, though one of those is probably a gimp support player.
bluexy @ 07:04AM
Doesn't look like any new gameplay... check that. That was a song I hadn't heard before! Now they're showing some of the touch screen functionality which is utilized in the app that's already currently available.
bluexy @ 07:03AM
Next is Rayman Legends, which used to be an exclusive. Sad in my face.
bluexy @ 07:02AM
Talking about the 3DS version now, which can customize remote control vehicles which can be sent to the Wii U version for co-op sort of play?
bluexy @ 07:02AM
A brief in-game cinematic of Robotnik and the Evil 6 was shown. And robot snails.
bluexy @ 07:01AM
I haven't seen this footage before... I think? It's still the same Green Fields level. Oh! And a desert level, too.
bluexy @ 07:01AM
Is this still third party if Nintendo is publishing?
bluexy @ 07:00AM
We're starting with third party titles. Good on Nintendo for putting them first. Sonic Lost World!
bluexy @ 07:00AM
Iwata's smiling face as welcoming as ever.
bluexy @ 07:00AM
Here we go!
bluexy @ 07:00AM
We should be starting any second now. Oh, and remember, if you miss any of the stream Nintendo is quick about posting the recording moments after the end.
bluexy @ 06:58AM
Keep in mind this is the first full Nintendo Direct since E3! They've only had a mini one since.
bluexy @ 06:57AM
quote bbb
I'd be incredibly surprised to see anything new today, save for an eShop title or two. Nintendo said it was just on titles coming out this year, afterall.
Still, with Nintendo's recent Wii U sales controversy... they've got to do something, right? Maybe now isn't the right time though. Better to position that stuff around the holidays.
bluexy @ 06:56AM
Ahh, I'm just joking... it'll be 27 minutes of Pokemon.
bluexy @ 06:56AM
If they're going by most profitable upcoming releases, expect 13 minutes Mario Wii U, 13 minutes Pokemon X/Y and 1 extra minute for President Iwata to talk ... and all the other games too.
bluexy @ 06:54AM
The question of the day is whether we'll be seeing any announcement or if this will just be a hype building event for Nintendo's big fall releases. Pikmin 3 came out this past Sunday; that's a good start!
bluexy @ 06:52AM
Today's Nintendo Direct will be 27 minutes long, which is about the standard.
bluexy @ 06:52AM
Looks like the livestream page has just updated to include the video feed, though nothing's being broadcast right now.
bluexy @ 06:51AM
Bit too early for tech support. Good morning, by the way. Unless it's afternoon or evening where you happen to be.
bluexy @ 06:51AM
Hey everyone! Never mind that this post is flagged as "E3" ... it's the only way I could get the liveblog to work. xD
