Nintendo Direct - October 25th

http://images.nintendolife.com/news/2012/06/therell_be_a_new_nintendo_direct_tomorrow/attachment/0/large.jpgHello everyone! Wow, it's been a long time since I've made a post, I'm sooo sorry about that. But I'm amazed to see how well the blog has been doing although we've had practically NO posts. It's great to see that people are still coming to the site. But that's not what this post is about, oh no, it's all about Nintendo's most recent Nintendo Direct Broadcast, which was pretty incredible as it was all about the Nintendo 3DS. It featured information on tons of games, including, but not limited to Paper Mario: Sticker Star, Fire Emblem: Awakening (!!!), Animal Crossing: New Leaf (that's the official title for the NoA version), New Super Mario Bros. 2 DLC, and tons of upcoming games on the eShop. I really enjoyed watching this broadcast, and if you haven't already, you should as well. Here it is:

This holiday season is going to be AWESOME!! These titles all look fantastic! Also, if you didn't catch it, if you download any of the following titles (from now to January 6th, 2013) you can get Donkey Kong Original Edition as a free download on your Nintendo 3DS. The titles are:
  • Paper Mario: Sticker Star
  • Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask
  • Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone!
  • Style Savvy: Trendsetters
  • Crosswords Plus
Note that Donkey Kong Original Edition is NOT available for purchase, and it will probably stay that way forever. 

Well that wraps it up...Sorry it's been so long. Both I and IkeFE plan to make more posts more often. We hope you understand, life has been pretty crazy for the both of us. Well, until next time!

Where art thou Mega Man?

Since the dawn of my gaming experiences there have been few franchises that have stuck around for as long as Mega Man.  Mario, Sonic the Hedgehog, Zelda, ect. are some of his company, some of gaming's finest.

So where the heck is the Blue Boomer?

After two fantastic collection games, the first featuring the original Mega Man - Mega Man 8, the second featuring Mega Man X - Mega Man X6, a lot hasn't been said from Capcom's iconic character.  In fact, there's only been two games released for current generation systems - Mega Man 9 and 10, back in 2008 and 2010, respectively.

There have been a few nods to the series, most notably Zero's inclusion in the Wii Fighter "Tatsanoko vs. Capcom" and "Marvel vs. Capcom 3" for PS3/360.  Least notably, a mockery of Mega Man for Capcom's "Street Fighter X Tekken" crossover with Bandai-Namco.  Mega Man appears as an overweight version of his original game's boxart which featured a man with a gun on its cover... comical in some ways but the joke's on Mega Man's fans for sure.
Really Capcom?

After Kenji Inafune departed  from the company the madness took off.  Two promising titles, one for PS3/360 and the other for Nintendo 3DS, were promptly canceled.  It was clear Capcom wanted nothing to do with the series.  For the most part...

With profits down for most Japanese companies, Bandai-Namco and SEGA joined up with Capcom for another crossover title, however for once, its not a fighter.  The game featuring Mega Man X and Zero from the X series will be a turn based RPG for Nintendo 3DS.  It is not clear if the game will release outside of Japan, though its doubtful as the majority of its characters haven't come west in any of their own games.  Its clear that Capcom knows what characters are popular there in Japan and here in the US - Chris Redfield is not enough for a localization.  Sorry.

Bandai-Namco, SEGA and Capcom join forces for Project x Zone for 3DS.
Thoughts?  Comments?  Feel free to, I'd love to hear from everyone!
