This time on Devs Make Mario, join Kill.Switch creator Chris Esaki as he builds his first Mario Maker stage — playtested by Elite Beat Agents creator and Jumo co-founder Keiichi Yano. It’s a very interesting video so if you have a little over 4 minutes to watch, I urge you all to give it a go. I find it pretty cool having the developers discuss just how they came about their level design and may give some of you some ideas for your own creations.

Emily Rogers Shares The Games She Thinks Will Be On Nintendo NX Year One


Nintendo sleuth and proven reporter Emily Rogers has taken to Twitter and dropped some tidbits of what SHE thinks is headed to the Nintendo NX in its first year at retail. All of what she mentions seem to line up with current rumors and we cannot wait to hear more about Nintendo’s next system (which apparently we will HAVE to wait as Nintendo has stated that the system will not make an appearance at E3 this year).

Nintendo announced that its next system, codenamed NX, is headed for a global release in March 2017. Here are the games that she thinks will make it to the system in its first year:

-Legend of Zelda
-Smash Bros
-Pikmin 4
-Retro Studios project (rumored to NOT BE Donkey Kong OR Metroid)
-3D Mario
-Mario Kart
-Animal Crossing (maybe)

Couple this with some 3rd party support (praying) and it seems like the system will have an amazing first year.

Animal Crossing And Fire Emblem Headed to Mobile


Nintendo’s next mobile games will be based on Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing. Here is what the company had to say:

Nintendo’s Next Mobile Apps: Building on the positive consumer reaction to Miitomo, Nintendo announced that its next two mobile apps would be based on the familiar and beloved Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing franchises. Nintendo plans to release both of these applications this autumn. As for the former app, while making it more accessible in comparison to the Fire Emblem games for Nintendo’s dedicated gaming systems, Nintendo aims to offer the great value of a role-playing strategy game. Nintendo will design the latter game so that it will be connected with the world of Animal Crossing for dedicated gaming systems. By playing both Animal Crossing games, users will find increased enjoyment. Both of these are pure game applications. Compared to Miitomo, they have more prominent game elements, and the game content will tie closely into Nintendo’s dedicated games business. Nintendo will provide more details about these applications closer to their launch period, and aims to have multiple types of apps that appeal to different audiences and different groups of players.

This information was given during Nintendo’s investor meeting. Seems like both titles would fit perfectly on the mobile (iOS and Android) platform as they have found homes on Nintendo’s own mobile platforms in the past. Count me excited.

Nintendo NX Will Release in 2017


Nintendo has officially announced that it will be releasing its next console, codenamed NX, in March 2017. Many (including myself and my course) pinned the system as having a late 2016 release but the company has confirmed that the system will release in March 2017. Presumably the extra time is in preparation for the systems launch as Nintendo needs to hit it out of the park with this system. No other details were given but a vague “we will show the system later (not at E3) this year”…

I would be lying if I didn’t say I was a bit disappointed… We will keep our ears to the ground and let you all know what we hear.

How do you feel about this news?
