[Let’s Talk] This week’s big Nintendo news
Posted on 9 hours ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, Let's Talk, NX, Wii U | 28 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.

SEGA making a Shinobi movie
Posted on 1 day ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News | 5 Comments | 0 Likes
SEGA has decided to go ahead with a movie adaptation of Shinobi, one of the company’s classic franchises. Stories International – SEGA’s film and television production studio – will create the film with producer Marc Platt.
Platt said in a statement today:
“We love the Shinobi games and believe that the world of ninjas has never been properly explored onscreen. We now have the opportunity to do just that. With Shinobi, we hope to make a film that honors the essence of the games and brings this fascinating world to life for moviegoing audiences.”
Many of the Shinobi games have previously launched as Virtual Console titles. The most recent entry, Shinobi 3D, came out for 3DS several years ago.

Emily Rogers has returned with some new speculation about Retro Studios’ new project. As one would expect, this new title would be on NX.
Rogers wrote on Twitter a short while ago that the title in question isn’t Metroid, Donkey Kong Country, or Diddy Kong Racing 2. She adds that the project is planned for 2017.
Below are Rogers’ tweets:
Rumor part 2: Not Diddy Kong Racing 2 either. It sounds more like a new IP.
