Apple’s chief executive officer Tim Cook tweeted out that he was checking out Super Mario Run for iOS at Nintendo headquarters. The interesting tweet simply stated “Getting the hang of Super Mario Run, thanks to Miyamoto-san and his awesome team at Nintendo” but it’s pretty nifty to actually see the picture. Check it out and get ready for the release of Super Mario Run on iOS.
In case you missed my latest YouTube video, I have decided to post it right here for your viewing pleasure. While we wait and wait and wait for Nintendo to unveil the NX, I got to thinking about the future of what Amiibo’s could mean for the console. Remember the initial Amiibo craze? I wonder if Nintendo will try and kick start it again by upping the anti and allowing 3rd parties to release the figures as well…

Bravely Default is celebrating it’s 4 year anniversary. Square Enix’s official Bravely Default Twitter account has announced that the popular JRPG for the 3DS is officially celebrating this momentous anniversary. Here is what they had to say regarding the game (notice the little tease at the end):
“It’s Bravely‘s four-year anniversary! We apologize as news has been scant recently. There may be something soon….!?”
So, the most interesting part is right at the end of the tweet…. It states that we may be getting news “soon” regarding the franchise. Now if we remember, Nintendo held a pretty BIG Nintendo Direct last month which would no doubt be host to a new Bravely Default game. IF in fact the title was headed to the handheld, wouldn’t they announce it during the big show?
Seeing that this tweet mentions that we may be hearing something “soon” regarding the series AND that the Nintendo 3DS Direct had no mention of one of its biggest games, it may be safe to assume that the franchise may indeed be heading to the Nintendo NX. Nintendo is said to be officially announcing the much sought after system “soon” and what better way to entice even more gamers than with a full blown JRPG for their new console.
Whether or not it would be a remaster or a new entry into the series remains to be seen but did Square just drop a NX bomb? Let us know in the comment section!
