NINDIES SUMMER JAM – TRAILER

Get ready for #Nindies Summer Jam! Every Thursday in September, a new digital release for Wii U, Nintendo 3DS or both, will hit the Nintendo eShop at 10% of listing price for the first week!

Check out these participating #Nindies Summer Jam titles, as well as a variety of upcoming Nindie games for the rest of 2016 and beyond!

It’s a good thing that these Nindie titles are showing up on the Wii U as the release schedule for the dying system is pretty dismal. It’s unfortunate because the Wii U was a very nice system that will never full reach its true potential. I do have to say that these indie titles do look pretty nice and I see a number that I want to download.

Check out the trailer and let us know what “Nindie” is your favorite.

FAST Racing NEO : Neo Future PACK DLC Trailer

Here is the FAST Racing NEO : Neo Future PACK DLC trailer for your viewing pleasure. The Wii U downloadable title reminds us of FZERO and may be the closest thing to Nintendo’s classic that the Wii U will see. The Neo Future DLC Pack is coming soon and introduces some brand new courses that certainly look stunning. It always surprises me what the team at Shin’en Multimedia can do…

Enjoy.

Paper Mario: Color Splash – Rescue V: Episode 1

Here is a whimsical all new video showcasing one of the Wii U’s last big titles, Paper Mario: Color Splash. Follow the Rescue Squad as they take a look back at Mario’s adventure on Prism Island. I am impressed with the games visuals thus far and love how they seem to be keeping the humorous side of things with this series. It seems as though there will be more episodes like the one above in the near future so stay tuned for those.

Paper Mario: Color Splash is set to release in October for the Wii U. Color me in Nintendo.

Image of The Day…Mario Kind of Summer

CpGcILIWcAET1L8

I figured this image was very fitting as most of the nation has been under a giant hot spell. Today’s image of the day I call “It’s a Mario Kind of Summer” and I hope you all enjoy. This seems very fitting as I have mentioned as I will be hitting the beach up next week (that is why the website will be slow starting Sunday).

Check it out and enjoy.

Ubisoft Has A Number of NX Titles in Development

ubisoftUbisoft has announced that they have a number of Nintendo NX titles in development beyond the yearly series, Just Dance. Ubisoft’s head of EMEA, Alain Corre, has confirmed to Games Industry that the developer and publisher has a number of surprises in the works for the Nintendo NX. Here is that they had to say regarding the Nintendo NX system:

“Another new technology that Ubisoft is excited to support is the Nintendo NX. Of course, Nintendo has yet to say anything at all about its new hardware while the rumor mill continues to present plenty of plausible possibilities, but Corre assures me that Ubisoft is gearing up for a slate of titles beyond Just Dance.”

“We announced that we’re developing Just Dance for NX and we have other surprises that we will announce later, but we also believe Nintendo has the power to reinvent the way families are playing,” Corre tells me. “Nintendo is a fantastic powerhouse of brands that are really cherished by a lot of fans and families… I am still impressed by the reoccurrence of success and appetite even today for the Nintendo franchises on the current system.”

I am fully expecting Ubisoft will have one GIANT title to announce for Nintendo (cough cough, Beyond Good And Evil 2 anyone)…

All rumors are pointing to Nintendo revealing the Nintendo NX next month. As always, we will keep you updated.
