Kolzig commented on New Fire Emblem 3DS Title Set For Battle in Ja...:

Mario Maker delay is a good thing. I hope the expand it even more, the initial show in E3 was quite weak, but Mario Maker like Splatoon has been getting better and better in every Nintendo Direct that Nintendo has shown new material of it.



Kolzig commented on Antipole Gets the DX Treatment in Flip to 3DS ...:

Never played the original, noticed the announcement in Miiverse and it does look interesting. A good 2d platformer/shooter is always welcome.

Reminds me a bit of Blizzard's old Blackthorne, now that was a great game.



Kolzig commented on Rodea the Sky Soldier:

The game is finally getting released in April in Japan. I really hope Kadogawa Games will release it also in Europe & North America.

The price is a bit insane in Japan, especially for the Wii U version.

So cool that the Wii U version will apparently come including the original Wii version also, since Yuji Naka's Prope team finished that one already years ago, but Kadogawa Games did not want to release it.

Kolzig commented on Rodea the Sky Soldier:

So awesome, the game is finally getting released. Japan will get it in April and the Wii U version will include also the original Wii version that has been done and ready for about three years already!



Kolzig commented on Rumour: Cave Story 2 Teased at PAX South and C...:

I kind of wish Pixel does not make a sequel.

However Nicalis should really step up and release the missing games and ports in Europe for Wii U & 3DS. Come on, Ikachan was released in North America like two years ago, but still not in Europe. And where is the eShop release of Cave Story 3D?


I really fear that they will mess up the release of 90's Racer for Wii U in Europe also, even though the dev is from Greece!



Kolzig commented on New Exploit Makes The 3DS Region Free Without ...:

This is very good. One more wake up call for Iwata, Reggie and Nintendo in general. They need to step up to the modern times and kill off the stupid and stone age region lock.

Of course that requires for them to build a modern account systen also, which is only good.



Kolzig commented on Feature: Five Key Reveals We Want in 2015's Fi...:

Shibata-san will say in the European Direct: "Nintendo will release N3DS, Majora's Mask 3D TVii, Fatal Frame 5, Yakuza 1&2 HD, Photos with Mario and Nintendo gift cards with augmented reality card characters during Q1&Q2 2015 in Europe. Affordable Space Adventures release date is in Q1 2015"

Then he will continue and say: "Nintendo will release in Q1/Q2 2015 a new update that will combine the 3DS and Wii U architectures under one unified account and make the consoles region free. Europe's Club Nintendo will be opened to all countries in Europe and there will be only one Club Nintendo for all countries."

And to the end he will give the final blow reveal: "Virtua Boy, SNES and GBA will come to 3DS VC. N64 and GC Virtual console will come to Wii U VC in summer. Sega is back on board with VC and Master system, Mega Drive, Saturn and Dreamcast will be add to the Virtual console line up."

My head would explode, even if one of these would be true what I just wrote. :)



Kolzig commented on YouTube Update Spruces Up Wii U App:

Got last week an update to Wii U Youtube app that did not change really anything, except I could turn off the annoying UI sounds of the app that came with the previous update.

Did again a new update come?



Kolzig commented on Teslagrad:

For the upcoming discount, sure buy for that price!



Kolzig commented on Nintendo Download: 15th January (Europe):

That Angry Birds Star Wars price especially on Wii U eShop. :-D

Teslagrad looks fine for this week, as does Unepic.

So happy to see M2's new batch of Sega classics start to arrive.



Kolzig commented on Nintendo Adds a Bunch of Virtual Console Title...:

Here's hoping Satoru Shibata and the rest of Nintendo of Europe wakes up at some point and starts offering to whole Europe this same.

Still waiting for Photos with Mario, Rusty's Real Deal Baseball, TVii, whole Europe wide Club Nintendo OR a Nordic Club Nintendo. Get on working Shibata-san. At least some of the above must come in 2015.



Kolzig commented on Rumour: New Nintendo 3DS To Launch In Europe N...:

It might be that someone in Finland ordered the Australian 3DS XL from that one UK shop that was selling these in December.

Then just slapped a Euro price tag on it and took a pic.

But being from Finland, I'm quite sure that price will still be what the price is in Finland. It will be high, and quite a lot too much. We have 24% VAT.



Kolzig commented on Nintendo Sending Out amiibo Surveys to Select ...:

I am registered to the UK Club Nintendo though it's no use as I don't live in UK, can't even take part of the Winter Bonus promotion since it seems to require a Club Nintendo Points Card that my 3DS did not come with.

Doubt I will get any of the surveys either, it's still telling me I only have a "temporary account" and does not connect my Wii U to Club Nintendo.



Kolzig commented on Nintendo Europe Shipping Ambassador Edition Ne...:

The ambassador covers look absolutely the ugliest New 3DS covers I have seen to this date. The Smash Bros covers look nice.

Really horrified about the ripoff European prices. In Japan N3DS costs 109€, in Europe we have to pay £156 / 196€. Really fair pricing. Even more underlines the idea that the region lock in 3DS is so pointless.

I am too afraid to even imagine how much will the XL version cost here.

Once again feels like part of Nintendo's fans are second rate fans since this offer is only for Club Nintendo which is only in a few European countries.



Kolzig commented on Curve Studios Talks About The Future Of The Hy...:

Would be awesome to get a Wii U sequel. We do have Puddle there and Hydroventure through Wii mode, but a true sequel using HD graphics and all the knowledge Curve has learned through the years... now that would be quite a dreamy situation.

It was one of the first games I bought back in 2009 when I got Wii. Though game came out in end of 2010 so yeah, I didn't buy that much Wiiware. :-)



Kolzig commented on Nintendo Download: 8th January:

Awesome that Crunchyroll is coming also to Nintendo platform now. It's a very nice app.

Sega should release those Japan exclusive 3DS arcade and Sega Mega Drive / Sega Mega CD themes already in Europe! My money is waiting.



Kolzig commented on Two Tetris Titles Pulled From the 3DS eShop in...:

Ubisoft sucks as usual if it is up to them being the license holders.
This kind of licensing issues are stupid anyway, the game was done over 20 years ago, why can it just be left alone and be sold, who cares seriously?



Kolzig commented on Treasurenauts:

Never appeared in 2014. Someone should update this page.

Hopefully Renegade Kid releases at least some of their games in Europe also this year. 2014 was an utter failure.



Kolzig commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2015:

I've been waiting for Affordable Space Adventures from the moment it was announced. So happy that Wii U owners are getting Nifflas' latest game and it will be an exclusive.

I am waiting for it more than any other game this year, all platforms included. Nifflas games are always so fun and and the gameplay is really fluid.



Kolzig commented on Nintendo Of Europe's Satoru Shibata Delivers A...:

No mention of Club Nintendo for Nordic countries, TVii for Europe and many other things.

I am surprised that Tomodachi Life has sold over a million just in Europe. I have never seen it even sold anywhere in the shops.



Kolzig commented on Feature: Time to Vote For Your Game of the Yea...:

Not going to vote for any crappy developer's (Nicalis&Renegade Kid) game that hasn't been released in Europe. Really shame that Fatal Frame 5 can't be on that list. Thanks to Nintendo for that.

Would've voted for FF5, but since that wasn't possible, I took Bayonetta 2 instead.



Kolzig commented on Nintendo Download: 18th December (Europe):

Looks like it's time to buy Another World for the fourth time on a fourth device. I suck, but Eric Chahi can enjoy my money.

Otherwise quite lame week, I wonder are we getting any big Christmas sale discounts this year? Last year for example ZombiU for 5€ was awesome deal.

Code of Princess discount is again really weird, why 20.50? Why not 20? Also why so high price still when North America has had it for cheaper price in sale before if I remember correctly? I could go for it for 15€.



Kolzig commented on Developer of Retro City Rampage Explains, Agai...:

Just bought Swords&Soldiers yesterday for Wii U, so much more better exposure on the Wii U eshop instead of the old Wii Shop Channel.

Would do the same for RCR DX if it would appear on Wii U eShop, I think Brian Provinciano should contact Curve Studios. I think they could work out a good deal to get RCR on Wii U instead of just having to play on Wii mode.

This is one of the best indie games out there and it deserves all the exposure it can get. That is why I still hope it will come to Wii U eShop someday. Brian can concentrate on his next project and some quality company like Curve could handle the porting duties.



Kolzig commented on Weirdness: Legless Peach amiibo Bidding Closes...:

Has anyone ever actually seen Villager, Marth or the Wii trainer being sold, especially in Finland? It's funny that ever since amiibo came to shops, I have only seen the nine other figures. I have never seen the three supposedly soon to be discontinued characters.

And I thought Animal Crossing was a big important franchise for Nintendo.



Kolzig commented on Nintendo Download: 11th December (Europe):

Cool, finally the European WIi U discount for Resi Revelations is live, that price is kind of nice. Still can't get myself to buy it since I already have the HD version through some 5€ Steam sale earlier for PC and I got in the previous discount the 3DS version.

Is Resi Mercenaries worth to buy for 4€?



Kolzig commented on Rumour: Villager, Marth & Wii Fit Trainer amii...:

I have never even seen any of those three sold so I have my doubts about such rumours, same goes for the weird gamecube adapter being discountinued rumour.

I know Nintendo makes stupid and insane decisions sometimes, but this would really be something when they are trying to promote the amiibos a lot. Also they earn a ton of money with the gamecube adapter's pricing anyways so would make no sense to discontinue it when it just arrived.



Kolzig commented on Sonic Boom is Doing Pretty Well!:

Haven't tried the Wii U demo yet, but if people are saying the 3DS is better than the Wii U version, then the Wii U version must be really horrible as the 3DS game's demo was seriously one of the worst experiences I have had with any game in years. It was the worst Sonic game that has been made in my opinion based on the demo.



Kolzig commented on Video: Nintendo Shows Off a Series of New Thir...:

Really weird that Puyo Puyo is not released outside of Japan anymore. It's a really easily accessible and addictive game series. Also so strange on mobile side that the Android version is region locked, but the Apple version is not.



Kolzig commented on Interview: Shin'en Multimedia on FAST Racing N...:

no it's not cancelled, but Nicalis is producing it now and it seems to be taking forever. 90's arcade racer was supposed to be finished ages ago. I kind of feel sorry for putting money in that Kickstarter. Especially since Nicalis being the producer means that only way Europeans can get a hold of the finished game will be through Steam on PC.



Kolzig commented on Weirdness: Legless Peach amiibo Now Up For Sale:

Does anyone know where you can get Amiibos for the cheapest price in Europe? I've been looking through most of the UK shops, seems is at least cheaper than my locals shops by a euro or two. Here in Finland the characters seem to cost 16,95€, if you can even find those.

Don't really know is it because shops don't want these or because Bergsala hasn't provided the shops with the characters.
