Live Action/CG-Animated Ad for A Link Between Worlds

Nintendo has just released a new live action/cg-animated commercial for the upcoming Nintendo 3DS game The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. The commercial, despite being sleek and all modern-like, feels like a throwback to the 90s when commercials for toys and videogames were cheesy but fun. The commercial features a normal looking guy (which you’re supposed to relate to, I guess) ...

The Reason Why You Can’t Buy Pokemon as DLC

Nintendo originally had a no-DLC policy on their games but they have eventually warmed up on the concept as seen on titles like Fire Emblem: Awakening and others. However, one application of paid DLC that we haven’t seen yet, despite being a shoe-in for it, is in Pokemon. And it turns out there’s good reason for it. In a recent interview with 4Gamer.net, Pokemon art director Ken ...

Nintendo to Provide Solution to Pokemon X and Y Save Glitch

It seems that not all news associated with the Pokemon X and Y release is good, as there have been reports these past few days that both digital and physical copies of Pokemon X and Y has a glitch that will make the controls unresponsive when a player saves in certain areas inside Luminose City and then reloads the save. Thankfully, Nintendo once again shows a level of customer awareness and ...

Pokemon X’s Xerneas Makes its Way to Super Smash Bros.

By now, we’re assuming that Pokemon fans who were planning to take a stab at the recently released Pokemon X and Y already have their own copies, and have already picked their own starters. However, it would seem like Nintendo doesn’t want your experience with the new breeds to stop with the Nintendo 3DS, as the official Super Smash Bros. website has just been updated with another ...

New Story Trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD

If you haven’t played The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker on the Gamecube yet because you didn’t have a GCN or because you felt that it deviated too far from the Zelda franchise in terms of graphics, you’re missing out as it’s one of the best examples of the genre, and its decision to use stylized cel-shaded graphics instead of going for ulta-realism means it actually aged ...

Super Metroid Fan Animated Short

A lot of Nintendo fans have been clamoring for film adaptations of their favorite game franchises, no doubt willing to forgive Nintendo’s past transgressions on Hollywood (The Super Mario Bros. movie was a decent and watchable popcorn flick, but it’s ridiculously far from what people expect.) As per usual, it’s up to studio pitches (like the Legend of Zelda short we posted a few weeks ago) ...

New Pokemon X and Y Video Features Even More Mega-Evolved Pokemon

The last promo video for Pokemon X and Y revealed new Mega Evolved forms for several Pokemon, but we didn’t get to see much in the way of actual action from all the pokemon who can “mega-evolve” (it only featured Mega Mewtwo, Mega Lucario, and Mega Blaziken). A new video has since been released, featuring even more Mega-Evolved action. This new clip introduces the rest of the ...

Imagi’s CG-Animated Legend of Zelda Movie Pitch

Back in 2007, CGI film studio Imagi (TMNT, Astro Boy) created a pitch reel for a CG animated movie based on Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda videogame franchise. In case you haven’t heard about it, it’s because the pitch didn’t convince the powers that be that a Zelda movie is needed (something that I’m sure many of you would disagree with.) ...

Nintendo Will Be Pushing for More Japanese 3DS Games in the West

One of the complaints of Western Nintendo fans is that they tend to miss out on some real gems Japanese gems that don’t get ported to their shores. The complaint is usually prevalent with RPGs (which is almost always impossible to play even if you manage to import a copy if you don’t read and understand Japanese), but is also a problem with other genres, like the action adventure MMO ...
