If all of this is just a way to say Nintendo's right to ignore the fans' demand to get the GBA VC on 3DS, I'm (if you forgive the pun) not buying it.

I know this is about Metroid Prime's development and about how not listening to the fans turning out to be a good thing, but if - in this very period of time, I mean - you talk about Nintendo not listening to the fans, the GBA Virtual Console on Wii U immediately comes to mind. So yeah.

Voted for Yoshi, because his late reveal got me actually worried.
Also, DAT KEN SUGIMORI ART. (Although Peach looks way too much like Elesa in that one.)

Speaking of which, I've seen a lot of other screenshots - one of which shows the Super Leaf in effect, with Raccoon Luigi.
Let that sink in, right?
Also, apparently, there are Namco items such as Galaga ships and the Special Flag.

Have a look:
[EDIT: @ThomasBW84, how about these reveals?]



AlexSora89 commented on Nintendo Provides Some Context to 2013's Tomod...:

To clarify a point here: I'm a Christian as well, but I'm against homophobia. (And this, coming from an Italian, is kind of a rarity.)

And, unknowingly so, Nintendo just sent an anti-homophobic message here: two human beings can happen to love each other, regardless of their gender. All it takes is the heart within.



AlexSora89 commented on Super Smash Bros. Hitting 3DS This Summer, Wii...:

I'm really glad the 3DS version will come this soon, my only fear is that it'll be rushed as long as Ninty can push it "out of the way".
I hope I'll be proven wrong and Nintendo will acknowledge how long overdue a portable Smash Bros. truly is.



AlexSora89 commented on Talking Point: The Timing of Nintendo's Super ...:

As excited as I am for this, I have to say this Direct made my own hype skyrocket for several reasons, namely -
1) finally a Direct focusing on Smash Bros. alone, after many directs that kept saving the best for last
2) finally Smash Bros. is getting some recognition from Nintendo themselves, as they never treated their own fighting game as one of their top franchises (and it really deserves to be considered as such)
3) finally some good news for the Wii U
4) finally the chance to see a lot more stuff in a single update
5) finally some focus on the first Smash Bros. to have the honor of being also portable, what with it being long overdue being never stressed enough



AlexSora89 commented on Oddworld's Lorne Lanning Isn't Worried About W...:

Guys, if I were you I'd be more than willing to give Lanning a chance. The fact the man who created the quintessential adult platformer game for the original PSOne isn't worried for the unflattering amount of Wii Us that have been sold... well, it says a lot. I also suggest to give the PS1 original a try, provided you have a PSP or a PS3. Trust me, beneath its monstrous difficulty lies a LOT of quality.



AlexSora89 commented on Advance Wars Bringing the Battle to the Wii U ...:

Still can't believe all of this is staying away from 3DSes. Hopefully GBA games will become available once again as the portable games they're supposed to be. Someday.
Unless, of course, Ninty realizes this is yet another shooting in their own feet.



AlexSora89 commented on Super Smash Bros. on 3DS Just Got More Real - ...:

So, most likely the WiiU will get an arena-esque level in the vein of the two "Stadium" stages we've seen in Melee and Brawl, while the 3DS will witness a throwback (concept-wise) to the original's Saffron City stage.

Either way - as even @ThomasBW84 himself admitted - it's good to see Sakurai finally showing more about the SSB4 iteration I care about the most.



AlexSora89 commented on Soapbox: The Nintendo Wi-Fi Disconnection Remi...:

While Brawl's Sandbag-beating online play is hardly something I'll miss, I have to say Nintendo has started to show its internet-related claws only recently, what with the Nintendo Network ID and Pokémon X and Y's outstanding online capabilities. Other than that, it still has a lot to learn from PS3 and Xbox 360. I own a 360 myself, and I have to admit that while having to pay a monthly fee (a kinda hefty one, at that) for online play is something that never fails to get my head shaking, the fact that full games are given away as freebies twice a month is a sight to behold as well. Sure, Nintendo's multiplayer is always a delight with such titles as Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros, but the company's unfavorable comparisons with others' online play needn't to be glorified, either.
