Let’s get started after the break.

NintyBuzz @ EGX 2014

It was an early Sunday morning, dew fresh on the ground and sleep encrusted upon my eyelids. There was no time to waste, as the final day of EGX lay ahead. Yes, we had the pleasure to attend one of the biggest gaming expos in the UK, full of various upcoming titles from many different developers for many different consoles, though of course, we mainly stayed in the Nintendo booth… scratch that, that was our home for the entire day!

Check out our full experience from the event after the break!

Nintendo Outlines Wii U and 3DS Release Schedule For 2014

Every so often, Nintendo likes to give us a blowout of release dates, and it just so happens that we’ve got a new one.

Most dates are merely reitterations of those we heard about at E3, but there are a number of exciting games heading our way in the next few months – notably Fantasy Life, Smash Bros and Pokemon for 3DS alongside Bayonetta and Hyrule Warriors for Wii U. At the end of August, America will also at long last get their hands on the superb rollercoaster of emotion that is Layton vs Wright.

Splatoon, Zelda U, Star Fox, Xenoblade X, and Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. have all been confirmed for 2015, which should ensure that the games will keep on coming well into next year.

Check out the full schedule below!

There are several other interesting points to mention. Firstly, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker seems to have been delayed to Q1 2015 in Europe, though it still aims for a Holiday 2014 release in Japan and the US. Also, if you remember way back to 2013, you would have remembered a game called Brain Age: Concentration Training getting its release in Japan and the US, though the release date seemed to have disappeared for European territories. It now looks like the game hasn’t been completely forgotten by Nintendo of Europe as they have listed it but with an unknown release. This raises the question of what caused the game to be delayed by over two years in Europe? Perhaps that’s one of the training exercises.

That’s not all, Nintendo have also released a schedule with all the 3rd Party titles which are coming soon for 3DS and Wii U, though these do not have release dates listed.

Bayonetta 2 Online Multiplayer Explained

During E3, Nintendo announced that Bayonetta 2 would be getting online two player multiplayer. Today they released some nifty details about this mode, which is called Tag Climax… that’s a bit saucy now, isn’t it?

Not only can you invite your friends to the party, you can also be matched up with a random player online or, if you hate social situations but are a bit lonely, you can play with a computer controlled character. There will quite a bit of variety with this mode. You can test your strength by fighting challenging bosses, get surrounded by hordes of enemies and even change the time of day.

If you are one with a bit of competitive spirit, then in quick matches you can bet Halos (the in-game currency) on who can get the best score. You can then use these to purchase techniques, accessories and alternate weapon variations. The stages you can play all depend on what Verse Cards you have acquired, you can also heighten the difficulty if you are feeling adventurous, this can also increase your bounty… unless you lose, if you lose you will lose more of your Halos. Finally, you can choose your own character, weapons and accessories before starting a match and most equipment and skills can be acquired as you progress in the main story.

Bayonetta 2 is set to be released on the 20th September in Japan, and sometime in October in North American and Europe. Though the retail version comes with the original Bayonetta remake you will have to purchase it separately on the Wii U eShop, however the value of Bayonetta 1 and 2 on the eShop combined equals the same as the RRP in stores.
