While spending my 21st birthday being rather lazy (to be fair, I did go to the Crystal Maze experience this past Sunday), I was informed that Nintendo will be hosting a brand new Direct on the 1st September 2016! This Nintendo 3DS focused Direct will go live at 3pm BST. The last Direct was way back in March, so it is nice to see a new one finally airing soon!
We aren’t completely certain what this direct will pertain, though we are told that it will be Nintendo 3DS focused. We were also told that plans on the NX and mobile will not be revealed. Perhaps we could see a new game announcement or two?
There will also be a North American version airing on the same day at 7am PT.
It’s been a good long while since we got to hype over a brand new Nintendo Direct, but the wait is finally over – as long as you have an interest in Pokemon, that is.
Nintendo have announced a new Pokemon Direct for February 26th/27th. In Japan, this will be on none other than Pokemon Day – the 20th Anniversary of the release of the games that started it all.
USA (PST) – 7AM, 26th February
UK (GMT) – 3PM, 26th February
Europe (CET) – 4PM, 26th February
Japan – (JST) – Midnight, 27th February
Australia – (Canberra) – 2AM, 27th February
Given the recent hype around the juggernaut series, as well as the length of time since the last release, the odds must be good that we’ll see a new main series title announced. But will that game be the almost inevitable Pokemon Z, or perhaps it could be the dawn of a brand new generation? There’s also a good chance we might hear more about the long awaited Pokemon Go, but of course we’ll have to wait and see.
And you never know, if a new main series game ends up as a launch title for the handheld portion of the NX, we might even end up getting that long awaited HD home console game. We can always dream…
Yes, I know we are a bit late on this one, but after 25 years (I wasn’t even born back then) Nintendo are bringing back the Nintendo World Championships to coincide with their E3 presence. For the weeks leading up to E3 2015, Nintendo will be holding regional evens in North America for fans to compete to become the Nintendo World Champion 2015 at the Nokia Theatre, LA on the 14th June.
Not only will they have the Nintendo World Championships (which seems to have no love for other countries) but we can also expect to see their Digital Event, Treehouse Live streams and demos of Mario Maker at Best Buy locations.
Check out the entire press release after the break!
Wasn’t that a short and sweet direct… well maybe not so sweet, those Inkling’s look very mischievous! Though the majority of the Direct was basically recapping information which we have heard before, there were still some very interesting information announced too.
Update – Apologies, the reported date is a Thursday, NOT a Friday.
We don’t usually cover news, but when we do, it’s got to be exciting, and here we are! We may have had a Nintendo Direct at the beginning of the month (not including the Xenoblade Mini-Direct last week), but it seems they think that we already deserve another direct, this time focusing on Splatoon, next Thursday (7th May 2015)
Well, we have worked hard (mostly) over the weekend for this and we are now ready to reveal… well, what we have been working on, obviously!
Anywho, we are happy to announce NintyTalk! NintyTalk is a brand new feature in which we will have a spontaneous discussion on recent Nintendo and other gaming news. As this is still very early days, so we may be a bit rusty (heck, we’re very rusty) but hopefully, the more we do, the more we should improve.
Now, in this instalment of NintyTalk, we’ll be discussing the NintyBuzz revival, Xenoblade X Mini-Direct, Smash Bros. DLC, Mario Kart DLC, Zelda Wii U Delay and Project Ukulele!
Please tell us what you think of this episode and how we could improve. See you next time!
