No More Heroes 3

The No More Heroes franchise was dormant for about a decade following the release of the second entry on Wii. But we then saw Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes in 2019, Switch ports of the previous titles last year, and we’re about to get No More Heroes 3. You can definitely say that the series’ future is looking bright.

No More Heroes has stayed within the gaming space, but creator Suda51 is interested in expanding the IP into areas. Speaking with IGN, he talked about how he hopes there’ll be a movie or TV show based on the series someday. Also revealed is that one past proposal “came really close” to happening, with a decision even having been made egarding “the actor to play the main character, but it never made it into production.”

Suda51’s full words:

This week’s episode of Nintendo Minute has gone live. In today’s video, Kit and Krysta test Link’s athleticism with three challenges in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Check out the full episode below.

While a Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin Nendoroid is on the way for Princess Sakuna, the character is also getting a new Pop Up Parade figure.

Metroid Dread amiibo

The Nintendo UK store has started pre-orders for the upcoming Samus and E.M.M.I. amiibo. If interested, you can reserve it here.

The Samus and E.M.M.I. amiibo release on October 8 alongside Metroid Dread.

If you watched the opening ceremony for the Tokyo Olympics a few days ago, you may have recognized some familiar tunes. The event featured music from a bunch of different gaming franchises ranging from Final Fantasy to Sonic. Nintendo, however, wasn’t involved at all.

For some, this may have come as a surprise. Nintendo is a top icon when it comes to gaming in Japan, and Mario had a notable presence for the Rio Olympics in 2016. Not only did the character appear in a video, but Shinzo Abe – who was the Prime Minister of Japan at the time – came out of a Warp Pipe wearing the plumber’s hat.

According to a Variety report, Netflix has started development on a new live-action Pokemon series. Specifics regarding the plot are not yet known as the project is in its early stages.

Variety does say that Joe Henderson will serve as a writer and executive producer. Henderson has been a co-showrunner and executive producer on Lucifer, another show from Netflix.

Netflix has been home to the Pokemon anime, and all of the latest episodes can be viewed on the service now.


Steam Deck

Last week, Valve unveiled its new Steam Deck system. The device has drawn plenty of comparisons to Switch since it’s capable of playing big games on the go (with docking support as well) and in some ways reminds gamers of Nintendo’s console from a design standpoint.

Valve itself has now commented on those comparisons. Designer Greg Coomer is the first to weigh in, telling IGN that Switch a “great device,” but feels the company is targeting a different audience.

He said:

The Etrian Odyssey series was prevalent on DS, and even more so on 3DS. There have been several mainline entries, remakes, and even crossovers with the Mystery Dungeon series.

Etrian Odyssey Nexus, the latest title in the franchise, initially debuted in 2018 so it hasn’t been terribly long since the last game. But fans are curious to know what’s coming next. Atlus seemed to tease what looked to be “the next stage” of Etrian Odyssey back in 2018, though we haven’t heard anything since.

This week’s episode of Nintendo Minute has gone live. In today’s video, Kit and Krysta do a challenge where they look at an extreme close-up of boxart for Nintendo titles to see if they can guess what game it is. Check out the full episode below.
