New Kingdoms, Snapshot Mode and Leaderboards for Mario Odyssey!

Nintendo concluded tonights Nintendo Direct with same brand new announcements which I am sure will CAPture your attention… see what I did there!

First of all, there were two brand new kingdoms announced for Nintendo upcoming Switch adventure. Though Summer is now over, that doesn’t mean you still can’t lay down by the beach, especially in Bubblaine in the Seaside Kingdom. Perhaps you’re looking for a good reason to get all snuggly, well you’re gonna love Shiveria in Snow Kingdom. Even more kingdoms await Mario, including some tropical islands and, what seems to be ruins of sort. Oh, we also see that some Kingdoms contain more than 50 Moons, you’d better get collecting!

A brand new mode was also announced, which is a first for a Mario game. At (nearly) any point during gameplay you can enter Snapshot Mode. In this mode everything seems to freeze, allowing you to take pictures on your adventure. You can even add filters, zoom in/out, or even add a logo, because why not advertise the name of the game in your scrapbook!

You may have seen there are a few mini games in Super Mario Odyssey, such as Skip Rope in New Donk City. Well, there will apparently be plenty more, including Koopa Racing, and not only can you win Power Moons from competing in them, but you can also submit your high scores and compare them worldwide on leaderboards… how neat!

There’s a few other pieces of neat info released too. If you are having a bit of trouble, talking to Talkatoo will give you a very subtle hint for a Power Moon. Additionally, you can use coins to find out the location of a Power Moon from Toad or use an Amiibo from Uncle Amiibo. The three wedding Amiibo for Odyssey are still on track for release, as well as providing hints, they will also unlock wedding costumes for Mario, regional coin locations, invisibility, and an extra life heart.

Finally, a brand new Switch bundle with Super Mario Odyssey has been announced, and they will come packed with red JoyCons and a special edition carrying case. This is a new colour, different from the Neon Red JoyCons. Super Mario Odyssey, the Switch bundle, and the Amiibo release on the 27th October 2017 in North America and Europe!

So how is Super Mario Odyssey looking to you now? Have you been CAPtivated? Has is CAPtured your attention? Tell us in the comments below! Images and video segment to be added later, watch this space.

REVIEW – Poochy and Yoshi’s Woolly World

Back in 2015, Yoshi knitted himself into a brand new adventure on Wii U, in Yoshi’s Wooly World. He’s now unravelled in size onto the 3DS, and brought a four legged friend with him in Poochy and Yoshi’s Woolly World.

Has the downsize kept the fuzzy charm of the original, or has Yoshi snagged a thread in Poochy and Yoshi’s Woolly World? Find out in our review, after the break!

Zelda Wii U – The Timeline?

[nextpage title=”Intro/Creation Era” ]With the release of the next new Legend of Zelda game slowly approaching for Wii U, we hardly know anything about it. We know that there will be a constantly changing open world, you can utilise electric arrows, and Epona will be making a mighty return, but that’s basically it… we don’t even have a subtitle yet. Hopefully, this should all change during the Summer (or sooner, we know how Nintendo loves to surprise us), but in the meantime, it won’t hurt to try and theorise some of the details for the next Zelda release?

One of the most important parts of coming up with theories for unreleased games of the franchise is trying to figure out where the game will be set on the timeline. Nintendo have kept the Zelda timeline secret for a very long time (either because they wanted us to keep guessing or they just didn’t have one) but that was finally unveiled in the 2011’s Hyrule Historia (which was released a couple years later in English).

Today, we will be discussing where we think Zelda Wii U could be placed on the Timeline, and of course, feel free to join the fun… after the break!

PLEASE NOTE – The following may contain some crucial story spoilers of currently release The Legend of Zelda games!
