NintyMan commented on Preview: Looking for the Light in The Legend o...:

Twilight Princess was my first Zelda game, but it’s been years since I’ve played it, so I think returning to it with this would work just fine. The visuals may not be a radical overhaul, but it’s not blurry anymore. What matters most of all to me are the gameplay changes and improvements, and it looks like this version got a good number of them. I originally got the Wii version, but I honestly think I would be better off playing with conventional controls.



NintyMan commented on Nintendo Outlines Future Plans for 3DS and Pro...:

A new WarioWare would be perfect for 3DS. Those games always like to take advantage of the console or handheld played, and 3DS has a bunch of features to play around with! It's shocking that it hasn't even come to 3DS yet.



NintyMan commented on The Legend of Zelda for Wii U Gets Its 2016 Re...:

I just don’t see why Zelda U should have to be delayed to next year at all. It doesn’t make sense to me.

It would be nice to see something at all about the Project games, and whether they’ll be on the eShop or full retail.



NintyMan commented on Feature: Five Key Details That May Emerge From...:

My Nintendo Account and the new reward program will be my most interested topic of these, and it doesn’t make much sense for delaying Star Fox Zero once again, so I expect the April 22nd date for NA will stick



NintyMan commented on Splatoon Producer Hints at More Content Being ...:

If they do make more content, the Callie and Marie amiibo might happen and maybe even the playable Octolings. But with NX supposedly around the corner, I would be okay with them just going ahead and making the next Splatoon too.



NintyMan commented on Rumour: Data Miners Find Evidence That Suggest...:

My question would be what would they do in the game? More missions and minigames? Something else?

As for the amiibo actually being made, I can see it happen. I like both Squid Sisters equally, so I'd probably get both of them. Hopefully this would mean the Squid Sisters might come to Super Mario Maker. I'd say Yoshi's Woolly World too, but Nintendo unfortunately never updated that game to accept new amiibo yet.



NintyMan commented on Poll: Which Nintendo Franchises Do You Most Wa...:

Three choices are too few, but I voted for 3D Mario, Kid Icarus, and Donkey Kong Country (only if it has Kremlings!) and that's just based on my personal taste. Sales-wise it would be a good idea to release not just 3D Mario, but also Mario Kart, a Splatoon sequel, Metroid, Animal Crossing, and Smash eventually, but they might not have to be for launch. If NX uses a handheld and console, that could open some cool possibilities for Animal Crossing. Nintendo just needs to tap into its IP more again.



NintyMan commented on Macronix Will Be Providing Memory Products for...:

It actually seems like Nintendo may start talking about NX long before E3. I believe they may even reveal it next month in February! Nintendo appears to be anxious to get the ball rolling on NX details and at least start talking about it if they can’t do a full reveal soon. E3 will definitely be a time to showcase its full potential, but I sense Nintendo may take a different approach this time. The competition did like the PS4 reveal in February, although I know Nintendo doesn’t like to mimic them. We’ll just have to wait and see.

This information appears to imply both a 2016 release and the NX possibly being a hybrid with the handheld releasing first.



NintyMan commented on Rumour: Super Smash Bros. Planned as NX Launch...:

This reminds me of a rumor from two years ago about Bandai-Namco putting up an online ad for “Smash Bros. 6” before it was abruptly pulled down when news sites spotted it. They were allegedly hiring staffers for everything from characters to stages to 3D programming. However, it was presented as being for current consoles the next year, so it’s probably not related to this. Still, this couldn’t help but make me think of that.



NintyMan commented on Rumour: Super Smash Bros. Planned as NX Launch...:

It's too soon for a new game, so I agree with most here that it would more than likely be a port of Smash Bros. Wii U with shinier visuals, all DLC included, and probably some new content for fans to justify getting it again.



NintyMan commented on Random: Someone At Walmart Took Shovel Knight'...:

Clearly Shovel Knight belongs more in the garden decoration section where all the garden gnomes and ornaments are.

This gave me a good chuckle! Hopefully this was meant as some kind of prank because clearly a figurine is not going to help much at all with actually gardening.



NintyMan commented on Rumour: Intelligent Systems Is Working On New ...:

This leak reminds me of when last summer there was a Japanese jobs expo where representatives of Intelligent Systems allegedly told people that a new Paper Mario for Wii U was in the works. The people who went there even posted a photo of the pamphlets the reps passed out during the event to prove that the event actually took place.



NintyMan commented on Rumour: Intelligent Systems Is Working On New ...:

I believe that this is real considering the past accuracy of the leakers with Twilight Princess HD and Mini Mario & Friends: amiibo Challenge.

While I would want this to be like Paper Mario 64 and TTYD on steroids, I’m going to be keeping my expectations in check considering the recent trend with Mario RPGs. If it breaks the trend of more familiar Mario environments and characters and few original characters, then I’ll be surprised. I’ll just want the return of turn-based RPG battles at the very least and no more gimmicks. The platforming of SPM was okay, but kind of tacky, and the sticker system in Sticker Star was just a messy disappointment. Maybe they could bring back partners, even if they aren’t a diverse bunch like in the TTYD.

I think we’ll get a Nintendo Direct in the near future, but not until February. That’s not too early and it would be the month before March when My Nintendo Account will be releasing, giving them an opportunity to explain it in more detail a month in advance.



NintyMan commented on Nintendo of America Confirms amiibo Support fo...:

Sheesh, people rushing to conclusions here. Like it or not, amiibo is here to stay. Reminds me of when a lot of people thought the Wolf Link dungeon would be something big and it just turned out to be a cave of trials instead. I don't think the amiibo will do anything major in Star Fox Zero. I wish they had done more with it in Mario & Sonic, though.



NintyMan commented on Macquarie Report Believes a Competitively-Pric...:

If NX is a hybrid, releasing the portable and console apart could make sense as far as keeping the cost down, but even then it makes me wonder just how integral it would be to have both components together. I guess it wouldn't be in this case. It's an interesting thought.



NintyMan commented on Rumour: Online Survey Mentions NX's 4K Video S...:

Ugh, if this thing was true, then NX would get a Zelda U port, but there would be a new Donkey Kong game!

I hope Nintendo starts talking about NX very soon, like February or March, before these rumors get too out of hand. It doesn't have to be a full reveal; they should just start actually leaking out details through a Direct or conferences. The full reveal could wait for E3 if need be.



NintyMan commented on Tatsumi Kimishima Is Aiming To Quadruple Ninte...:

Not surprising that DLC will be increasingly important to Nintendo, and I hope that they are ambitious with their use of IP. I want to know what they plan to do with amiibo in the future as the Smash series is almost over with only the DLC characters left. The end of the biggest series of amiibo means that they better be thinking of starting other series in the near future, whether it's Pokemon cards, a Zelda series, or more. NX will be the biggest factor of whether Nintendo reaches those big profits, and evidently Kimishima is rather confident in NX. Unlike us, he knows what it is, so we'll just have to see what it is that's making him confident.



NintyMan commented on Rumour: Details of amiibo Features in The Lege...:

The Wolf Link amiibo feature doesn't bother me. The Ganondorf amiibo acting like Hero Mode sounds odd, especially if it's only usable for one day, but that particular detail is probably inaccurate. We'll just have to wait for fully-translated Famitsu articles and scans to know for sure.



NintyMan commented on Feature: Five Alternative Nintendo Reveals and...:

Whatever game Retro Studios started working on in December 2013 when they were still finishing up Tropical Freeze, it should be good and it should be for NX. It won't be DK-related and I'm not really convinced it'll be Metroid, so it'll be interesting to see what it is, whether a new IP or a series revival.



NintyMan commented on 1994 Patent Reveals Nintendo Was Looking To Cr...:

So Super Mario Maker could have been made 22 years ago. That's impressive!

They probably didn't do it since buying another console to play it would possibly be pricey. In that case, I'm surprised Nintendo just recently released Super Mario Maker. I guess the GamePad would make the whole experience a lot smoother, which may be why they didn't make it for past consoles.



NintyMan commented on Talking Point: Considering amiibo Features and...:

More than likely, this dungeon would just be a bonus and not necessary to complete the game at all. When Nintendo would actually reveal it, there may still be complaining, but the fact that it’ll be optional ought to defuse it somewhat. Even so, there will always be those people who don’t want amiibo to be much of anything other than decoration. Nintendo didn’t intend for amiibo to become a series of simple Nintendo figurines, they’re meant to also be ways to enhance the gaming experience.

I actually want to use my amiibo. I like how they can unlock costumes in Mario Kart 8 and Yoshi’s Woolly World, and I think simply giving me items is a missed opportunity. Something more worthwhile gives amiibo figures more value and actually makes me want to go out and buy more. Whether they will become ambitious enough to be part of a dedicated amiibo game is currently unclear, but I’m just fine with something like this if it’s reasonable and the stock of amiibo is reasonable too. Regardless of what direction amiibo use will go, Nintendo cannot please everyone.



NintyMan commented on ​The Princess Daisy Costume is Finally Comin...:

Good; now I don't care what more costumes they add, as it truly was a glaring absence to leave Daisy out. Waluigi getting a costume before her was ironic, as Daisy is a more important character since she appeared in a mainstream Mario game in Super Mario Land. Waluigi has purely existed in spin-offs.



NintyMan commented on Nintendo's European Sites Give Mario & Sonic A...:

It sounds odd to release it on a Tuesday and on the 9th. They might as well release it on the 5th when the actual Olympics start.

It didn't make sense for Sega and Nintendo to release Mario & Sonic 2012 in late 2011, long before the Summer Olympics, so I think it's a good thing that Mario & Sonic 2016 might release during the actual Olympics, let alone in the year of it!



NintyMan commented on Rumour: Twilight Princess HD to Feature Specia...:

I think this is real as Amazon leaked details of Smash Bros. Wii U that came true. I'm glad that they are doing more with the game rather than just add a new coat of paint, and this further convinces me to get a Wolf Link amiibo. I don't have a problem with amiibo unlocking much content as long as there is a good stock of amiibo to buy, but thankfully here in the U.S. it's been easier to find newer amiibo lately.



NintyMan commented on Poll: Are You Optimistic About Nintendo's 2016?:

I'm going to have a good amount of optimism that this year will be great for Nintendo. It will certainly be better than 2015 at the very least and I can't see it getting any worse.

Since I think it's possible NX might come later this year, Wii U would dwindle down, but still hopefully get a respectful end because of Zelda if nothing else.

3DS seems more likely to have a solid year as it's getting a lot of games soon with the end of the handheld not being in sight. There's still games like a new WarioWare that I want to see on it.

I'm not interested in Miitomo and the Smartphone games at the moment, but that may change depending on what's revealed, even though I won't expect it as they're not going to be targeted to someone like me anyway.

NX will be a huge reveal. It's hard not to feel optimistic about that. I'm excited that it could be the system that puts Nintendo in a greatly respectful position again. I just hope that if it has to release later this year, that it has the launch line-up to back it up and not repeat the mistakes of 3DS and Wii U.



NintyMan commented on Metroid: Zero Mission Looks Set for a 14th Jan...:

I've recently wanted to play this, so I'll definitely try to buy it tomorrow. Funnily enough, years ago I got the strategy guide through Nintendo Power for free because of subscribing, even though I didn't own the game. Now it'll finally get used after all of these years! It will be a nice, little commemoration for the 30th anniversary of Metroid.



NintyMan commented on ​Mini Mario & Friends amiibo Challenge Launc...:

I think this is likely that rumored game. I've never played the later Mario vs. Donkey Kong games after the first one. What's disappointing about this is that it may support all amiibo, but it doesn't bring an actual playable character of that amiibo to the game other than Mario and DK characters. As President Kimishima has said, amiibo's true potential still hasn't been realized.

Even so, I may still consider it, if nothing else but to use some of my amiibo more.



NintyMan commented on Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games Hi...:

I'll consider this for my birthday if the game is fine and the story mode is better than London 2012's. I think I would like the console version more and I don't like how only certain characters can be played for certain events on the 3DS version, but a better story mode might make it a little more worthwhile.

@Not_Soos: It looks like Mario's trying to do his own death stare.



NintyMan commented on Feature: Exciting Wii U and 3DS Games to Play ...:

Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam, Twilight Princess HD, and Hyrule Warriors Legends are all I plan on getting these first three months, and the Zelda games I'll likely put off to my birthday in April. That's fine as Paper Jam will give me a good Mario RPG fix I haven't had and college will prevent me from playing too many games anyway.



NintyMan commented on ​Splatoon's Next Splatfest in North America ...:

Since I love history, the past in general would be appealing. It would be fascinating to see local, national, and world events and time periods in person. This is assuming that I would have abundant use of the time machine!

I think I'll choose the past. The future definitely has its perks like getting to play future games ahead of time. However, I don't know if I would be daring enough to go into the distant future. Who knows what this world will look like in five years, let alone in a hundred or more?!



NintyMan commented on ​Splatoon's Next Splatfest in North America ...:

This is by far my toughest Splatfest decision yet. I'd love to go back and see the dinosaurs and other ancient creatures, but I'd also love to see what the future holds for my life, Nintendo, whether space colonization can ever be a thing, among others. Then again, the future can be scary in its uncertainty. The world could be in a utopia or be in World War III. This question doesn't ask how far behind or ahead we would want to go. I'm probably putting way too much thought into this!
