The good people over at Nintendo Minute have put together an E3 2015 VLOG for us to watch so be sure to check it out above. E3 2015 won’t go down as Nintendo’s best show but it’s always cool to see a behind the scenes look from the show floor. Check out the video and let us know what you think.
Here are some beautiful World of Final Fantasy screenshots for your enjoyment. World of Final Fantasy was shown during Sony’s incredible E3 2015 press conference and features the popular franchise in a cute, anime style. It’s a stark change from what we are used to with Final Fantasy but I kind of like it… It’s like a chibi-adorable Final Fantasy with pretty sweet looking environments. I may give this one a chance.
What do you guys think?
Here is a video in where president of Nintendo America, Reggie Fils Aime, stopped by the treehouse live setup and discussed some Nintendo news. The segment is just over 8 minutes in length so if you have some time, check it out.
I have played Super Mario Maker and Zelda Triforce Heroes and am pleased to report that they both play sublime. As expected, both of Nintendo’s newest titles in the 3DS and Wii U libraries are extremely fun but it’s always nice to hear it straight from someone who just played the games (my local Best Buy has the Play Nintendo promo from E3). Let’s be honest, Nintendo’s E3 digital Event was a bit of a train wreck. You know it, I know it, heck even Mr. Iwata knows it. However, if you have the chance to stroll down to a participating Best Buy, you may want to test out Nintendo’s latest two titles.
First off, Super Mario Maker. Super Mario Maker was insanely addicting and unbearably difficult (but in a good way). There are some twisted minds over at Nintendo and I LOVED every minute of it. What was nice is that when I got to my local Best Buy I was able to get some quality time with the Wii U game and I was impressed to say the least. I expected the game to be good but this thing is going to be magical! I cannot wait to get my hands on the retail copy as I want to make and create the same devious levels that I played through today.
I was very surprised that the other Nintendo rep had 3 new Nintendo 3DS systems and they were all equipped with the newly announced Zelda Triforce Heroes. While this game may have turned off some with its “spinoff” feel, it surely was fun. Fun is why we play games and there is no doubting that this game is going to be a barrel of it. I quickly became the “jerk” in the group because I couldn’t resist grabbing the other Links and throwing them off the side of the cliffs. It was hilarious to do and I just had to see their reaction and couldn’t resist. After a bit of joking around, all 3 of us began to work together and that’s when things really started to click. We worked well and had to communicate in order to get the job done. I could see how this game is going to make or break friendships and it’s going to be something fierce whenever it’s released.
Overall, I think we knew that these games were going to be something great but it was awesome to get my hands on them myself. I just wanted to report that these Nintendo titles felt great and if you have a chance to visit a Best Buy that is allowing people to check these games out, don’t miss it (be sure to look for some Nintendo goodies as well).
As always, thanks for reading. Let me know if you plan on participating in this promo.
Here is the colorful Kingdom Hearts III trailer that was shown during Square’s E3 2015 press conference. I LOVE all the beautiful colors that the world exudes and it looks glorious in HD. Although Kingdom Hearts III does not have a release date as of this writing, things seem to be shaping up quite nicely for the game so we hope to play it sometime next year.
Kingdom Hearts III is headed to PS4 and XBOX One.
One of the best surprises from Sony’s press conferences was a title called Horizon Zero Dawn. Horizon Zero Dawn looks to take the 3rd person action genre in new directions introducing a female protagonist complete with giant robot “dinosaurs”. It was amazing to see in action and we have high hopes for this one when it’s inevitably released.
Check out the gorgeous screens for this newly announced title and let us know what you think about this PS4 exclusive. Sony really brought it this year and it was outstanding to see.
During Nintendo’s Digital Event, Ninendo displayed an all new Mario Tennis and it’s headed to Wii U this Holiday season. Mario Tennis Ultra Smash was shown in glorious HD and is what we have come to expect in the series. The game will be headed to store shelves this Holiday season so that was a welcome surprise.
Nintendo has finally revealed the release date for Yoshi’s Woolly World for North America. The adorable Wii U exclusive will arrive in North America on October 16th. Remember that the game will also utilize the new Yarn Amiibo as well as the Amiibo that you currently own. Hopefully we will hear about a special edition for the game that will include a Yarn Yoshi Amiibo with the game.
An all new Metriod Prime has been announced and it is headed to Nintendo 3DS. The game, which features a number of character working together, looked pretty decent and may not be the Metriod Prime people were hoping for. The newly announced game was revealed during Nintendo’s Digital event for E3 2015.
During today’s Nintendo Digital Event, the company has announced that an all new Zelda is headed to the Nintendo 3DS. The game, entitled Zelda Triforce Heroes, will be headed to retail this Holiday season. The game is reminiscent of Zelda Four Swords Adventure minus 1. The game will feature a heavy multiplayer component and looks pretty interesting.
Stay tuned for more.
