@rjejr That's pretty much the consensus - it's not 'real' Tournaments, unless you get in one of the Regular 1v1 no items ones, which as we've said above often necessitates sitting around a bit. The custom Tourneys are ultimately for a bit of a laugh, but hopefully 1v1 will be added as an option in an update.

@Grumblevolcano Indeed, that seems likely.

It seems people really love this, so that's great.

And again, sorry about the review, our team is swamped (especially in NA) as there's been a LOT of downloads, but we will get one done eventually. But yeah, the general chat online seems to quite like this.

@Peach64 Hm, fair point, I'll try and double check with NIS. That said, I'm pretty darn sure it's late next year, as with Q1 / Q2 2016 games like Stella Glow and Etrian Odyssey Untold 2 NIS gave precise dates.

Update: Have asked NIS and will update this article if it is indeed due early 2016. As I said, my assumption was based on how the publisher dated other games, but it's definitely worth checking.

@ekreig All opinions, I happen to disagree with Itagaki-san, that's just how it goes this time; there's plenty of time for me to play it more before it's out and reviews are due, anyway. I don't believe it's 'truth' that personal skill levels account for the various negative previews, but Itagaki-san is perfectly entitled to have that view.

If you're convinced this is a game for you regardless of any other opinions then the answer's simple - buy it. Previews, reviews etc are all just there for reference, you can pay them heed or ignore them as you please.



ThomasBW84 commented on Multiple Sources Point to Nintendo of America ...:

@Splatburst The point was to look at what was being said, follow up on some of it with a few people and share a clarification based on what seems to be the case. Courtesy of the web deciding to harass people it decides are wrong on something, I though clarity wouldn't do any harm. As these reports on a 'u-turn' appear to be valid, I decided to share it. As I say in the article, it's not 100%, but the weight of sources seems pretty heavy.

It varies, anyway, sometimes I skip these merry-go-rounds, but there were people with good intentions and a strong track record being called liars due to a vague NoA tweet, which doesn't seem fair to me.

My favourite part:

"Also, we have a lot more stock than we've had of any other amiibo yet. I know we'll end up selling out, but I think it'll be closer to the Splatoon 3-pack or Charizard or something rather than Lucina/Robin in terms of how long they're available (~15 mins after available). If you show up on time, you should be able to get one."

15 minutes of stock is good! Oh amiibo, can't live with you, can't live without you.

I should add that our YouTube man Alex did a lovely job with the video, too. I appreciate all of the comments throughout today from all of you, and I think the Nintendo Life community has shown its wonderful side in the past 24 hours.



ThomasBW84 commented on Obituary: Satoru Iwata:

@SanderEvers Just to clarify, Genyo Takeda and Shigeru Miyamoto have been Representative Directors prior to Iwata-san's passing, all three fulfilled that particular role. The statement is simply formally advising that they remain as the current two Representative Directors, continuing their existing roles at the moment.



ThomasBW84 commented on Nintendo President Satoru Iwata Passes Away Ag...:

Hugely sad, sudden news. I believe his legacy and impact on Nintendo, gaming and gamers will never be forgotten.

For me, personally, I'll always remember the humour an humility of Iwata-san. His Nintendo Direct presentations, his Iwata Asks articles, and his determination to preserve the values of Nintendo all stick with me.

Hard to know what else to say.
