In a recent interview with publisher Nnooo, The Legend of Kusakari developers Librage talked about their inspirations for the title, confirming that their game is indeed inspired by the Legend of Zelda series, and elaborated on their interaction with Nintendo and how they felt about such clear inspirations.
When asked about how the team was inspired to make the The Legend of Kusakari, Librage said:
The inspiration is the Legend of Zelda itself as you can see from the title logo and its game elements!
Furthermore, when asked about the kind of reaction Nintendo had to the clear inspirations the The Legend of Kusakari has to the The Legend of Zelda series, Librage said:
This is just our subjective impression, but they seem to be very favorable about this game. We visited Nintendo headquarters for a meeting and explained our project. They said this game was easy to understand because the title and content are consistent, and praised us.

[Let’s Talk] Thoughts on Metroid Prime: Federation Force
Posted on 4 days ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in 3DS, Let's Talk | 16 Comments | 0 Likes
Metroid Prime: Federation Force might be one of Nintendo’s most controversial games in recent years. The reception has been very mixed – leaning more towards the negative side – since its reveal in 2015, and the conversations haven’t slowed down since then. But on Friday, the game finally launched and everyone has a chance to play it for themselves.
We thought Metroid Prime: Federation Force was alright, as you can read in our review. It’s definitely not one of the worst titles on 3DS, but we feel it’s not towards the top of what the system has to offer as well. The critical reception has also been mixed. Some outlets feel strongly that Federation Force is a great release while others haven’t felt nearly the same. Given how things have gone for the game, I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised by the critical reaction.
If you’ve had a chance to play Metroid Prime: Federation Force since it came out yesterday, what are your feelings on it thus far? If you don’t have it yet, do you intend to change that at any point down the line? What are your thoughts on it in general? Let us know in the comments below!

[Review] Metroid Prime: Federation Force
Posted on 5 days ago by Vincent Ward in 3DS, Reviews | 25 Comments | 0 Likes
Release date: August 19, 2016
Developer: Next Level Games
If you’re like a me who hasn’t kept up a ton with Metroid, you probably don’t know a whole lot about Metroid Prime: Federation Force. Since its unveiling, the 3DS title has remained shrouded in mystery for quite some time. Only one factor has remained a constant during its existence, which is that the game is unlike any other Metroid to date. Ditching the series’ iconic feeling of isolation and turning more towards four-player multiplayer, it attempts to reach for the stars and try something new. Therein lies the recurring problem with Federation Force, however. While the new ideas are fun, they offer equally as many bonuses as they do flaws.
