[Let’s Talk] Nintendo and movies
Posted on 4 days ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Let's Talk | 11 Comments | 0 Likes
One of the bigger news stories from the past week came from Tatsumi Kimishima’s new interview with Asahi. While talking with the publication, Kimishima revealed some pretty big plans for the company’s pursuit of movies. Nintendo is really looking to get into this entertainment field and hopes to produce something within the next few years.
Aside from that, there’s not too much to go on. Kimishima did indicate that Nintendo is more interested in animation than live-action at this point. He also suggested that they could work with partners.
So what’s everyone’s pipe dream when it comes to Nintendo films? Is there one particular franchise above all others that you want to see become a movie? Do you have any specific Nintendo film ideas? Let us know how you feel in the comments below!

We all know that Shigeru Miyamoto has taken inspiration from some of his real life experiences when making games. But what happens when he comes up with a new idea that’s totally out of left field? That’s what we explore in this week’s comic…

Short site update I want to sneak in here: we still have a comic coming this weekend, and it should be up tomorrow. Don’s been very busy, but he’s working extremely hard. We appreciate your patience!
It took a few months, but we finally saw the first gameplay trailer for Pokemon Sun/Moon this week. The world was shown, the mascots and boxarts were unveiled, a release date was announced, and… we have a first look at the new starter Pokemon! They are Rowlen, Litten, and Popplio.
What’s everyone making of Pokemon Sun/Moon thus far? Have you already decided on the starter you’ll be going with? Since we’ve seen the legendaries, do you have a better idea about which version you’ll be buying (or both)? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below!

Hey everyone! Don doesn’t have a new comic for the site today due to some personal things happening this week. Everyone deserves some time off anyway, right?! Well, except me anyway… haha.
Don didn’t want us to go completely empty-handed, so we do have a little something attached above. We’ll absolutely be back next week with the next part of Ted’s adventure!
[Review] Pocket Card Jockey

System: 3DS (eShop)
Release date: May 5, 2016
Developer: Game Freak
You’re playing solitaire, managing RPG stats, strategically maneuvering an adorable little stumpy-leg horse. As disparate as these elements seem, they manage to meld into a single cohesive experience with every little initially convoluted wrinkle feeding into another system, looping around and creating a uniquely addictive experience. I haven’t ever wanted to play a racehorse management sim governed by the rules of solitaire, but I’m sure glad I did. I guess what’s most surprising is that some madman somehow crafted these distinct gameplay elements into one of the more engaging 3DS games.

[Let’s Talk] This week’s big Nintendo news
Posted on 3 weeks ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, Let's Talk, NX, Wii U | 76 Comments | 0 Likes
In just a matter of minutes, Nintendo made major announcements about the NX, the new Zelda game, its E3 2016 plans, and next mobile titles on Wednesday. Now that the dust has settled, it’s take to look back on the news and talk about it all.
Here’s a recap of everything:
– NX: not releasing this holiday as many expected, but will instead launch globally in March 2017; unveiling later this year
– Zelda: the new game is coming to both NX and Wii U; delayed to 2017 for a simultaneous launch on both platforms
– E3 2016: no NX at E3, Zelda will be the only playable title
– Mobile: Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing games coming this fall; the latter will connect “with the world of Animal Crossing for dedicated gaming systems”
Now it’s time to talk about the big news! How’s everyone absorbing the various announcements? I think for me, the most surprising thing is that Zelda is the only playable Nintendo game at E3. We’ve never really seen anything like that before. I do sort of wonder why Paper Mario: Color Splash isn’t going to be there, and we won’t be seeing anything on 3DS which seems slightly odd as well.
Nintendo Everything comic #6: Readers, we choose you (part 2)

After our one-shot with Miyamoto, we’re returning to the “choose your own” adventure we started with Ted a couple of weeks ago. We asked you guys to help us in deciding where to take the comic, and the winning submission was… Bowser, as suggested by Jordan Fricks. We ultimately selected Bowser as we felt it would work best with the story.
Here’s the second part of the comic (click for full size):
And now we want your feedback again! Which Nintendoverse should Ted and Bowser end up in? Let us know in the comments below, and we’ll be back soon with the next part of the story!
