Nintendo’s Kirby event partially disappoints
Posted 14 years ago by Brian in DS, General Nintendo, News | 1 Comment
Nintendo was hyping up another hosted event just a few days ago. There was a whole barrage of speculation, but yes: Blowing bubbles was the main attraction at Nintendo’s event. As was partially expected, Nintendo promoted Kirby Super Star Ultra for the Nintendo DS. However, a bunch of Kirby bubbles were blown and sent up in the sky. So no – There was no Kirby Wii announcement or any Kirby revelation at all, but hey…The Kirby bubbles are kind of nice.
WiiNintendo looking to help Hurricane Ike victims – Ike’ll Get No Sympathy From Us
Posted 14 years ago by Brian in General Nintendo, News | 1 Comment
I wanted to share this with everyone, since I think it’s a very original and selfless act. The folks over at WiiNintendo are trying to compile tons of videos of fighting Ike in SSBB and winning. Also, they currently have a donations box running and all money that is donated will be given to the American Red Cross to help victims of Hurricane Ike.
“I wanted to let you know about a project entitled ‘Ike’ll Get No Sympathy From Us’ that WiiNintendo is starting. One of our writers, Charmy, came up with an idea to have the gaming community help Hurricane Ike victims. What we’re asking is for people to record videos of themselves fighting the character Ike in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and winning. We’re going to post these videos up on WiiNintendo in an effort to show the many people that are ‘fighting Ike.’ We’re eventually going to make a big compilation video of the videos that were sent in.”
Square Enix President Yoichi Wada has revealed that Dragon Quest IX will be released early next year in Japan. Numerous Dragon Quest fans have been itching to get their hands on the title this year, but the game is still in development. We probably won’t hear about Dragon Quest IX news in other territories for quite awhile, but keep your eyes pealed over the next few months for more news.
This video is pretty nostolgic for me…The classic music is there, the characters, and it’s Dragon Ball. I remember growing up and watching the show all of the time – Lame, I know!
