One topic brought up during the Q&A portion of Nintendo’s latest financial results briefing. President Tatsumi Kimishima and Shigeru Miyamoto both weighed in.

Kimishima noted that Nintendo looks to avoid selling hardware at a launch. Additionally, the company thinks about a price that “consumers will consider fair value and Nintendo-esque.” For software, Kimishima said “it is important that the software contain content of value, and that the value of the content not vary even if the way it is provided changes.”

As part of its latest financial results, Nintendo finally confirmed that a new animated Mario movie is on the way. Illumination is being brought in to work on the project.

During the Q&A section of Nintendo’s latest financial results briefing, Shigeru Miyamoto commented on the movie a bit further. Below are his full comments on the film:

Right now, Nintendo doesn’t have too much of a presence in China. That doesn’t mean the company isn’t interested in expanding in the country, however.

Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima commented on plans for China. Currently the Big N is looking into how it can have more of a foothold there and is “consulting with various other parties on aspects we cannot tackle alone.” Kimishima added that “would like to realize this as quickly as possible”.

Billy Mitchell, a prominent member of the Donkey Kong arcade scene, was recently accused of obtaining high scores on the emulator MAME. This is significant since it was expected that he had playing on original arcade hardware.

During an episode of internet talk show “East Side Dave”, Mitchell finally commented on the situation. First, he started out with the following:

GameStop is now taking pre-orders for the Detective Pikachu amiibo. You can reserve it here. The amiibo is also up on Amazon here for those who missed the news yesterday.

Thanks to Felix for the tip!

The Spielwarenmesse toy fair in Germany just wrapped up. Toy maker Zappies was present at the event, and has put out an interesting claim about Sonic.

Spindash heard from Zappies at the convention that a third Sonic racing game is on the way. Not only that, but it’s apparently launching this year.

Much like the Squid Sisters a few years ago, Pearl and Marina from Off the Hook will be appearing “live” in concert for the first time this weekend at NicoNico Tokaigi this weekend. Nintendo readied a promo video for the event, which we have below.

Amazon Canada now has pre-orders open for the Detective Pikachu amiibo. Orders for the figure can be placed here. Note that this is only for Canada, so you can’t place an order from the US.
