Nintendo's Iwata promises a 'reasonable' Wii U price

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1851 days, 22 hours, 55 minutes ago
Wednesday, June 27, 2012 7:51:09 AM GMT
In an interview with Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata, Japan's Yomiuri Shimbun asked about Wii U's pricing, which would be a nice thing to know, especially when you consider that the system will be released in about six months. Iwata says that they're aiming to release their latest console at a "reasonable" price, whatever that means. (more)

Rabbids Land E3 trailer plays with a Wii U in an amusement park

We don't know about you guys, but we wouldn't step foot in a Rabbids amusement park. A Rabbids spaceship, however, sounds like a ton of fun – but maybe not a spaceship controlled with a WiiPad. (more)

The Legend of Zelda will soon be retold in this nursery

We think our dad is pretty cool, but here's a secret: he's not as cool as this dad. Our dad never put in three months of hard work (over 150 hours!) on something for us before we were even born. Way to look like a chump, pop. (more)

Wii U tech won't circumvent used-game sales; first-party titles in 1080p

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1858 days, 22 hours, 8 minutes ago
Wednesday, June 20, 2012 8:38:08 AM GMT
Nintendo hasn't incorporated any features in the Wii U to discourage used-game sales. Nintendo's Executive VP of Sales and Marketing, Scott Moffitt, told Gamespot at E3 that Nintendo isn't overtly concerned with combating used-game sales: "I don't know if we have a formal position on used-game sales. It is a reality in the marketplace," Moffitt said. "We're not trying to circumvent that." He didn't mention any specifics about online passes or DLC in Nintendo titles. (more)

Ranking Japanese RPG publishers after E3 2012

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1864 days, 21 hours, 15 minutes ago
Thursday, June 14, 2012 9:31:27 AM GMT
As I was going through my E3 schedule, I realized something remarkable. I found that I was actually more excited to be meeting with XSEED than with Square Enix. A far cry from 2009, to be sure, when I practically sprinted onto the show floor to play some Final Fantasy XIII. (more)

Miyamoto: Retro-developed Zelda 'not out of the question,' but studio is 'too busy'

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1864 days, 21 hours, 16 minutes ago
Thursday, June 14, 2012 9:30:25 AM GMT
Retro Studios recently worked on 2010's Wii game Donkey Kong Country Returns, and last year's Mario Kart 7. For the studio's future, legendary game designer Shigeru Miyamoto said it isn't out of the question for Retro to work on the Zelda franchise; however, the Austin-based developer is currently too busy to take on the series.

No online multiplayer in Pikmin 3

Those looking forward to herding dead-eyed plant monsters with friends around the world are in for a disappointment. Nintendo has no intention of exploiting the Wii U's increased online focus with Pikmin 3, as the game shall only feature local multiplayer. (more)

No multi-touch on Wii U, wouldn't 'feel right'

Wednesday, June 13, 2012 8:09:41 AM GMT
Nintendo beef-boy Reggie Fils-Aime has said that, very much like $99 tablets available to buy at CVS, the Wii U controller touch screen will not feature multi-touch. There shall be no pinching, swirling, or anything in between, because Nintendo has decided it wouldn't "feel" right. (more)

Nintendo's E3 2012 booth: the tour

Sure, you couldn't be in Los Angeles with us for this year's E3, but that doesn't mean you have to miss out on the sights and sounds of the LA Convention Center's neon light-littered, bass-pounding show floor. Nintendo's booth is no exception, with approximately a trillion Wii U game kiosks, not to mention 3DSes attached to "booth models" with all variety of game. Take a gander just above to see for yourself. (more)

Reality Pump's Sacrilegium takes survival horror to modern Romania in 2013

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1871 days, 12 minutes ago
Friday, June 08, 2012 6:34:03 AM GMT
Sacrilegium, the next game from Two Worlds developer Reality Pump is just a little different from its previous fantasy-driven efforts. Taking a break from orcs and wizards, Sacrilegium is a survival horror title set in modern day Romania – and yes, Vlad the Impaler does figure in there somewhere, though Reality Pump is keeping mum on the subject until Gamescom later this year.

The Wii U accessory onslaught begins in the Scribblenaut-iest way

With a new console comes a world of new accessories. I encountered my first Wii U accessory in PDP's booth, and it's glorious. To go with the Wii U version of Scribblenauts Unlimited, PDP has concocted a cover for the WiiPad designed to mimic Maxwell's "rooster hat." (more)

E3: Wii U can't stand up

Wednesday, June 06, 2012 7:57:31 PM GMT
Legendary designer and all-around goofball Shigeru Miyamoto discussed the Wii U hardware in a recent interview with Kotaku. When asked why the console won't be able to sit vertically like every other console on the market -- note that both its sides are curved -- Miyamoto said, "I guess we could make a stand," before quickly side-stepping the question and discussing the impetus and design inspiration for the console.

A jaunt through Nintendo Land

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1872 days, 11 hours ago
Wednesday, June 06, 2012 7:46:53 PM GMT
We took a quick stroll through Nintendo Land today, shortly after Nintendo implicitly positioned the game as the Wii U's educational answer to Wii Sports. It's launching alongside the hardware this holiday – though not necessarily inside a bundle – and breaks down all of the Wii U's standout features into friendly, easily digestible mini games. (more)

Wii U's Game and Wario makes me Wario-wary

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1872 days, 11 hours, 1 minute ago
Wednesday, June 06, 2012 7:45:13 PM GMT
It seems stubborn to lament a stylistic and gameplay shift for (essentially) the WarioWare series -- one built on hilariously frequent stylistic and gameplay shifts -- but the Wii U's Game & Wario dramatically shifts away from pretty much all the cornerstones of WarioWare, and toward conventional minigames.

Rumor: Wii U price point set, will have apps

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1873 days, 23 hours, 10 minutes ago
Tuesday, June 05, 2012 7:36:33 AM GMT
E3 has barely started and already a ton of juicy rumors are flying around like, well, flying hotcakes. Andriasang is reporting that Nikkei has uncovered a 30,000 yen price point for the Wii U. If the rumor is true, this would put the Wii-U at around a $400 US launch price (approximately $383, to be exact). Of course, this is not confirmed, and the US could easily net a different pricing scheme, but considering the unit will most likely ship with a system, tablet, and wiimote, I can easily see the $400 re...

With E3 2012 only a few short days away, we decided to take a moment to tell you what we think might happen during the three major press conferences at the show. In years past, we've created Bingo Cards to create some sort of false interactive experience. (And no one ever won!) (more)

Nintendo can't wait for its own E3 press conference, schedules pre-E3 broadcast for tomorrow

Remember that wall of coverage Nintendo promised for next week's E3 festivities? Yeah, well, apparently that extends to scooping itself a bit with a Pre-E3 event, two days ahead of its official, real deal Tuesday press conference. Tomorrow, the company's president Satoru Iwata will be hosting a web broadcast with information about the Wii U. According to Nintendo, the early bird event will offer up some more info with regards to games for the much awaited next generation console -- and we'll be liveblogg... (more)
