Pokemon Pinball DS details

Did You Know Gaming has managed to uncover new details about the cancelled Pokemon Diamond and Pearl Pinball project for DS.

We first heard about the title in July 2021 as part of an internal Nintendo leak. Fuse, the studio behind Metroid Prime Pinball, was in charge of development. Did You Know Gaming spoke with Matthew Nightingale, who was an artist working on the game.

Project Valkyrie Metroid Prime

Did You Know Gaming has secured new details on Project Valkyrie, a number of prototypes for the Metroid series that eventually turned into Metroid Prime: Federation Force.

You may recall that there was talk of a cancelled Metroid 3DS project in 2014 and 2015 that tied in with some pieces of concept art shared by a Next Level Games employee. Much was made of the image for Samus pictured above at the time.

Nintendo put out a notice today on its Japanese customer support Twitter page informing consumers to stop using the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector due to security concerns. The same also applies to the Network Adapter, which only released in Japan.

The primary reason for the notice is that these devices use WEP, an insecure Wi-Fi protection algorithm. Additionally, the adapter contains a bug in which it can be infected by malware.

Okamiden Chibiterasu PVC statue

First 4 Figures today unveiled its latest Okamiden statue, the Chibiterasu PVC. This follows the Chibiterasu vs. Dark Chibiterasu & Possessed Kuni product we reported on at the end of 2020.

Each unit contains the Chibiterasu PVC painted statue, highly detailed base inspired by Okami art style, Divine Retribution weapon with two LED functions, premium deluxe box, authentication card, and limited edition numbering. More information can be found below.

brain age sudoku

Sudoku wasn’t included in the original Japanese release of Brain Age, but it did find its way into the western edition. Former Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime is a big reason why.

Reggie knew that Nintendo would have to think about Brain Age differently in the west. Japan had an older population, and Dr. Kawashima was largely unknown in the west. Reggie would later have a conversation with the late Nintendo global CEO Satoru Iwata about including sudoku for Brain Age in overseas regions.

Metroid Prime Hunters: First Hunt controversy

Those that picked up an early DS unit may recall the pack-in experience Metroid Prime Hunters: First Hunt. Instead of going with a complete game, this was more of a demo that offered a look into what the final product would become.

Even though it wasn’t a full title, it turns out there was some controversy when it came to offering it to consumers. Former Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime mentioned in his newly-released book that “our developers hated to give away content for free”. Thankfully, the late Satoru Iwata and Shigeru Miyamoto both signed off on the idea.

Should Nintendo ever use dual screens again?

This may sound like a strange question, but after looking back on Nintendo consoles in the recent past, we know that the concept was used three times. Switch then represented the end of that trend, but could the idea could come back in the future?

In today’s video, I discuss the pros and cons of dual screen gameplay and, in the process, try to figure out if it is an idea that Nintendo should revisit in the future. You can check out the video down below.
