Media: Metroid: Other M Screens, Website, and Full Nintendo Summit Press Release with Gameplay Detai

One of these things is not like the others... Of the many things Nintendo talked about earlier today, the two biggest and most anticipated were no doubt Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Metroid: Other M. But where the two differ is that we have a pretty good idea of what Super Mario Galaxy 2 should be like; "Other M" could easily mean "Other Mystery" as far as gameplay is concerned. Following the debut trailer at the 2009 Electronic Entertainment Expo, the question on everyone's minds has been whether the game would be a 2.5D experience akin to the Metroid titles of old, or a 3D experience, perhaps like the Prime trilogy of titles. And the answer is: Both. Read More


Nintendo Download - 11/30/09 - Nintendo Offers 10 Downloads to Help You Recover from Your Holiday We

Yes, you read that correctly-- ten games. And it's not one of those weeks where they roll out half a dozen clock/calendar/calculator combinations, or where they split something like Electroplankton up into five or so parts. At the top of the list is the latest Tales from Monkey Island chapter on WiiWare, for the usual 1,000 Wii Points, followed by Hudson's My Zoo and Digital Leisure's Copter Crisis for half that amount (or both for the same). And if you're in the holiday spirit, then the 1,000 point Christmas Clix may be just what you're looking for. DSiWare brings something new from Electronic Arts in Foto Face: The Face Stealer Strikes for 800 DSi Points, which puts you in the game. The word-puzzle game Bookworm from PopCap can be yours for 500 DSi Points, and Nintendo brings the magic in Master of Illusion Express: Mind Probe for 200. And if you can't get enough Sudoku, then 500 points will net you Sudoku Challenge! from Digital Leisure. Finally, Virtual Console has a little love with the 800-point Combatribes for the Super NES and arcade version of Solomon's Key for 600. Check out all the details on each game in the press release after the cut. Read More


Time Ticks Down on Nintendo's Free DSi Points Offer

Thinking back to earlier this year, prior to the launch of the Nintendo DSi, one of the incentives given for people to adopt the new piece of hardware into their homes and pockets was the promise of 1,000 free DSi Points for the DSi Shop when you take the system online. Well, the time is drawing near for the deal to come to a close, as Nintendo has been kind enough to remind everyone. October 5th will be the final day a new DSi owner can connect the handheld to the internet and receive their free points, as of 11:59pm PST that day. Nintendo notes that the points do not expire, so once you have them in your possession, you can hang on to them for as long as you wish. Hit the jump for the press release, along with a few suggestions from Nintendo as to how you can spend your DSi Points. Edit: Nintendo dropped us a line, informing us that the promotion actually runs about twelve hours longer than the statement indicated. The change has been reflected in the article and press release.

Free Flipbook App Now Available on DSiWare

Right now on the DSiWare store you can download for free, an application that acts like an animated flipbook take on Pictochat. Flipnote Studio allows users to draw pictures like they would in Pictochat, then animate them and even add sound and then upload their creations to a website. Known in Japan as Moving Memo, the app was one of the first shown to demonstrate DSiWare before the DSi's launch. It has been available in Japan since last December, giving Flipnote Hatena plenty of time to be populated with creative work. Read More


Miyamoto's Thoughts on the Ultimate Video Game

During the recent Iwata Asks, in which the progression of art at Nintendo and the creation of Flipnote Studio are discussed, EAD General Manager Shigeru Miyamoto gave his idea of what the "ultimate video game" would be to him. "For a long time Nintendo has worked on developing games like editing tools," he explains. "I think the ultimate video game is a computer-aided design tool. I've always said that if we had the perfect tool to, for example, allow you to draw a picture however you wanted, it would be the most enjoyable software, but it was very hard to achieve."

Iwata Asks: The Birth of Bowser

Bowser, King of the Koopa, is a villainous character who is well-known amongst gamers; of this, I believe there is little question. After all, is he is the rival and nemesis of none other than Mario, one of the world's best known characters-- period. And personally, I've always favored his design, as he has appeared in games and Nintendo's promotional art... well, most of it, anyway. While we know him well for his spiky turtle shell, flaming mane of red hair (and similar bushy eyebrows), and a pair of rather devilish horns atop his head, some may remember that in the box art for the original Super Mario Bros. on the Famicom (pictured above), Bowser looked quite... different. During a recent Iwata Asks session for Flipnote Studio, EAD General Manager Shigeru Miyamoto revealed why the discrepancy, and the very different direction Bowser's design nearly took. Read More
