Investors are probably also hoping that Kimishima can lead NX away from the problems that plagued 3DS and Wii U. But with so little known about the new platform, many are worried that Nintendo might fumble again.



Mahe commented on Video: The Just Dance Unlimited Subscription S...:

@Sean_Aaron If you only have Just Dance 2 & 4 (+ DLC), you're missing out on a ton of great tracks. Not only tracks from previous games you don't own, like Eye of the Tiger, That's the Way I Like It, I Feel Love and No Limit, but also stuff from newer games, like Starships, Could You Be Loved, Follow the Leader, Bang Bang, Diamonds and Happy. Just to name a few. And that's in addition to all the new tracks in the Just Dance 2016 main game.

So even if you have some tracks featured in JD Unlimited in JD2 or JD4, that only makes a dent in the whole selection offered by JD2016 and JD Unlimited. Assuming the game and the service are up to the quality standard set by the previous Just Dance games, but they sure should be.



Mahe commented on Just Dance: Disney Party 2 Is Serenading The W...:

@abe_hikura Just Dance 2015 sold 4 million, and lots of those were on Wii. This just goes to show that Nintendo abandoned Wii too early. They could have made bank by releasing some Wii games in 2013 and even later. But even their "Nintendo Selects" budget line did very well. There are still lots of Wii owners out there looking for games.



Mahe commented on Video: The Just Dance Unlimited Subscription S...:

@Tsurii Just Dance 2016 is 50 bucks on Wii U. (40 on Wii, but that doesn't have JD Unlimited.)

And you don't have to pay for JD Unlimited if you don't want to. The free month will already give you a huge amount of playtime, and that's combined with how long-lasting the Just Dance base game is. For your initial purchase, you now get more to play and more playtime than ever before in the JD series.



Mahe commented on Core Console Market Bigger Than Ever, Despite ...:

A lot of Wii owners have migrated to PlayStation 4, because PS4 is where the new games are. And then there are the Wii holdouts who still enjoy that great console - Just Dance still sells a whole lot more on Wii than Wii U!



Mahe commented on Review: Baila Latino (Wii U eShop):

Yup, seems like a cheap knockoff of Just Dance. With all the Just Dance games still available for Wii, and Just Dance 2016 heading to Wii U and Wii in October, there's really no reason to give this a shake.



Mahe commented on FreezeME, Coming to Wii U, Looks Rather Simila...:

Wiimote & Nunchuk controls were one important feature which made the Mario Galaxy games better than their predecessors. This probably won't feature controls like in the Galaxy games, so how it looks is irrelevant.



Mahe commented on Just Dance 2016 is Bringing Its Funky Moves to...:

@rjejr Hah. Nice of you to remember that, I guess. The Wii Mini was a shoddy downgrade though, a Gamepad-less Wii U would be an upgrade of course!

As for Just Dance upgraders, there's not a whole lot that Wii U or the other HD consoles have offered before, at least. Just Dance has a graphical style that scales up pretty well to big flatscreen TVs even on Wii's SD resolution, and there are still a huge number of people with Wiis in use. This Just Dance Unlimited thing could spur some upgrades, but then again, Wii has the whole massive Just Dance back catalog available as disc releases. The thing with the Wii releases is, it's easy to take those discs to anybody who still has a Wii - or a Wii U! If you buy the Wii U version, then you have a lot less people who have the console and thus can play that version.



Mahe commented on Just Dance 2016 is Bringing Its Funky Moves to...:

@rjejr There have been several free DLC tracks over the course of the Just Dance series, some of which are even still available. The paid DLC tracks have also been fairly popular. Just Dance 3 even had that Mario track!

The online mode has also been completely free on Wii and other consoles where there's no separate subscription. The online mode still sees a lot monthly, weekly and even daily players, even in JD2014, so obviously the fans just don't get tired of Just Dance.

And what's more is that Ubisoft is hosting the Wii online mode for Just Dance on their own servers, so it wasn't affected when Nintendo's own Wii online services were cut off.



Mahe commented on Just Dance 2016 is Bringing Its Funky Moves to...:

Wooooww, Just Dance Unlimited sounds great!

@TurboPikachu Have you played the latest Just Dance games on Wii? They're actually pretty great. And they have the best controller, the Wii Remote!

Just Dance 2015 sold most on Wii, and it sold a lot. The same might even continue with JD2016.



Mahe commented on Turn It Up To Eleven, Guitar Hero Is Making A ...:

"Guitar Hero Live is something of a comeback for the franchise, which became massively popular during the PlayStation 2 era but faltered during the last console war."

What? Nintendolife offering some of their revisionist history again. The Guitar Hero series did start on PS2, but it was in the Wii/etc. generation that it really started becoming popular, especially with Guitar Hero 3. The oversupply of guitar games further into the generation was what killed the genre for a while, when Activision and EA were pumping out half a dozen guitar games, add-ons and spin-offs a year (did anybody really need Guitar Hero Van Halen or Lego Rock Band?)



Mahe commented on Feature: Ten Upcoming Nindie eShop Games to Wa...:

When it comes to content, the Wii and DSi download shops were much better than their Wii U and 3DS versions.

Even here, you've included a port of DSiWare game - not so tough to resist when you still have the original.



Mahe commented on Review: Pokémon Shuffle (3DS eShop):

"take the money you'd spend on an afternoon's worth of Jewels, put it towards [any other game] instead, and let the endless supply of [altogether different gameplay] tide you over between Shuffles."

Good advice, but why limit yourself to Pokemon games? Play any other game or games between your Shuffle sessions, and get a wider gaming experience that way.

With one cart in your 2DS/3DS plus downloadable games, it's easy to swap between any number of games on the go.



Mahe commented on Satoru Iwata Highlights Growth of Wii U Sales ...:

In the previous year compared here, Wii U had trash games like Game & Wario, Wind Waker HD and Mario 3D World. Compared to games like those, of course there's some growth in sales with Mario Kart 8, Hyrule Warriors and Smash, but overall figures are still very low. The Gamepad console has simply been one huge mistake from Nintendo with only a few noteworthy releases.



Mahe commented on Soapbox: Portable Gaming Forges a Special Rela...:

Nintendo really hasn't been the master lately with their 3DS bumbling. I find myself playing much fewer 3DS games now than on GB, GBA, DS, DSi... which I still keep playing. I hope Nintendo's next handheld will be a return to form after the 3DS missteps.



Mahe commented on Nintendo Dominated Japan During 2014, Despite ...:

@Caryslan Did you even read the news? 3DS console sales are down 36 % (1.8 million consoles) despite New 3DS, Smash Bros. and Youkai Watch. Wii U console sales are down 32 % despite Mario Kart 8 and Smash Bros. Meanwhile, the PS4 is closing in on 1 million consoles sold, while Japan is still in transition period between PS3 and PS4.

Worldwide, the situation is a nightmare for Nintendo. 3DS and Wii U are dying.



Mahe commented on Eiji Aonuma Wants Mario Kart 8's DLC Master Cy...:

"It looked so cool that I also want it to appear in games I work on."

I want Aonuma to stop working on Zelda. He doesn't even realize why the Master Cycle fits in Mario Kart 8 but not in the Zelda world. If Aonuma's allowed to continue, he'll make the "Final Fantasy 13" of the Zelda series.



Mahe commented on Mario Kart 8 Speeds Past The Two Million Copie...:

Even 48,000 to 60,000 is a "rise" in hardware sales too. If the effect is anything bigger, why wouldn't they share exact numbers?

Meanwhile, Mario Kart 8 is selling as well as it can on the Gamepad console. It's a good game with minimal Gamepad implementation.



Mahe commented on Video: Watch Our Handy Highlight Video To See ...:

No, just no. There has been a lot of criticism, and Nintendolife has become a bastion of ignorance if it claims otherwise.

Showing "highlights" of Nintendo's terrible E3 showing is grasping at straws.
