Splatoon, the highly anticipated shooter that is headed to Wii U, will grace the cover of the next Edge magazine. The May issue of Edge magazine will feature the innovative shooter so expect a number of impressions from the crew in the magazine.
Splatoon is set to arrive late next month and we can’t wait to get our hands on it.
Here is a shot of the Splatoon Japanese in-store advertising. It appears as though Nintendo is marketing this game very heavily in store and we hope that things turn out well for them. Splatoon looks like a standout title and could be a sleeper hit or sorts for 2015. The game is headed to North America next month and we will be there when it’s released.
Do you guys think Nintendo will do something similar in the US?
Our good friends over at Mynintendonews reported the following news regarding Xenoblade Chronicles X:
During the Japanese Nintendo Direct which took place on Wednesday April 1st, it was announced that Xenoblade Chronicles X’s next livestream will take place on April 10th. The event will focus on mecha weapons called Dolls and will also provide details about the game’s network features. The Xenoblade Chronicles X stream will go live on April 10th, at 10pm JPT.
We couldn’t be more excited about this Wii U exclusive and we hope to get some solid release info regarding the game for the US.
Here is the adorable Yoshi’s Woolly World box art for the US. This box art had to be one of my favorites of all time and we think it’s the bees knees. We found out during the Nintendo Direct on April 1st that Yoshi’s latest adventure on Wii U won’t be coming to the US until the fall but that won’t stop us from focusing all our attention on the game.
IGN’s rewind theater broke down the recent trailer for Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem and you can all check it out in the video above. Not much is known from this Nintendo/Atlus crossover but this all new trailer is certainly intriguing. Check it out and let us know your thoughts.
