New Nintendo Direct scheduled for April 1st

Nintendo-Direct-Logo-621x350Yesterday we saw rumors swirling about an upcoming Nintendo Direct on April 1st. We’re wary of posting anything with that date in mind considering how often it’s linked to pranks, but Nintendo themselves have confirmed that there will be a Nintendo Direct tomorrow dedicated to showcasing the upcoming games for both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.

nindThe timing on this one is a little bit different, as we’ll be getting an evening Direct instead of the early morning Direct that we’ve become used to. Still, it’s about time we’ve heard from Nintendo what they plan on releasing this year, especially since Eiji Aonuma broke the news that the new Legend of Zelda is not coming out in 2015. Here’s the full schedule adjusted for various time zones around the world.

  • US PST: 3pm
  • US CST: 5pm
  • US EST: 6pm
  • UK GMT: 11pm

What are you most looking forward to tomorrow?

Here’s the SMG style squirt gun from Splatoon [VIDEO]

Nintendo of Japan has been doing an excellent job of highlighting some of the unique weapons that players will be able to equip their Inklings with once the game releases in May. We’ve already seen the big paint roller and the grenade-launcher mortar gun, but this short video gives us a look at the quick-shooting SMG of the Splatoon world.

As with any SMG, this gun seems like it’ll be the most effective at mid-range, so you’ll have to get in somewhat close in order to get your opponent whittled down. It doesn’t have the stopping power of the hot blaster or the paint roller, but catch an inkling by surprise and you’ll probably take them out of that section of the map.

What gun do you want to see demonstrated next?

Frozenbyte is pleased with sales of Trine: Enchanted Edition on Wii U

Trine_Enchanted_Edition_Forest1_Heroes-640x360Finnish developer Frozenbyte’s Trine: Enchanted Edition was recently released on the Wii U eShop, sporting the graphical enhancements of the Trine 2 engine but featuring the story from the original game. Wii U fans have been eager to play the game, but one took to Twitter to ask the developers whether or not they’re pleased with how well the first game is performing on the Wii U. Frozenbyte responded that they’re happy with sales and how the game is performing.

faustOf course, the fan’s motive for asking the developers whether or not they’re pleased with the sales of the Enchanted Edition of the game come from the developer’s recent announcement of Trine 3 for PC. Trine 3 has not been confirmed as coming to Wii U, so it’s likely that sales of Trine: Enchanted Edition and Trine 2 will determine whether or not Frozenbyte will port the game to Wii U when it’s ready. Either way, this looks like a good sign for getting Trine 3 on Wii U.

Super Mario 3D World & Kirby soundtracks back up on Club Nintendo Europe

3d-world-soundtrack-headerHeads up, Europeans! If you’re looking to spend your stars before the Club Nintendo program closes for good, you’ve got two new choices today. The Super Mario 3D World soundtrack that was previously available is now re-stocked, so if you missed it the first time around you’ll be able to get it.

Also added to the stars catalog is the Kirby Triple Deluxe soundtrack, if you’re a big fan of Kirby games. The Super Mario 3D World soundtrack in particular is an excellent one and worthy of coming back. It’s a shame it never made its way to the North American Club Nintendo as a release, because there are plenty of people who would love to have a copy. The Super Mario 3D World soundtrack will set you back 3,000 stars, while the Kirby Triple Deluxe soundtrack is only 2,000.

Will you be getting either one with your stars?

Playtonic is interested in doing cross-promotion with Rare

project-ukelelePlaytonic Games announcing their spiritual successor to Banjo Kazooie in the form of an entirely new property is exciting news for fans of the old Rare games. Microsoft hasn’t really utilized Rare’s properties beyond giving Killer Instinct to another developer, but Playtonic’s Gavin Price says he would be down with cross-promotion of their projects with Microsoft’s Rare, if the parent company was kosher with it.

According to Price, he’d love to feature Banjo & Kazooie in their upcoming project as an homage to the roots of it.

I wanted to get across with my Rare comments how that even though we’ve left them, lots of people are still there who we consider to be our friends and of course we wish them well with whatever they do in their future careers. I don’t see us collaborating on a game in future, more a sense that we help cross-promote each others games in fun ways if the chance arose either in Ukulele or other games we do in future. For example, IF Rare and Microsoft were up for it, it would be great to have a certain Bear and Bird lost in one of our worlds and needing the help of our new heroes to get back.

Playtonic Games is made up of several former Rare employees who left the company to pursue their own goals. Earlier this year, the dev team announced Project Ukulele, which is supposed to be a throwback to the classic platforming action from Banjo Kazooie, albeit with entirely new characters. It’ll be interesting to see if the team will be able to recreate the magic of memorable mascots and perhaps we’ll get a better sneak peek at what the team is working on at E3 this year.
