Nintendo Direct Mini: Bravely Default, No More Heroes, Hyrule Warriors and More

Nintendo has once again struck with the sudden drop of a Nintendo Direct Mini Partner Showcase, the last one of the year at that.

The big announcements for this Direct would be Bravely Default II’s release date, coming February 26th 2021, the surprise drops of both No More Heroes and No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle on the eShop right now and the announcement of a Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity demo available to download right now too. No More Heroes III is also penned for a 2021 release, after the recent announcement of a delay pushed it back from its initial 2020 launch expectations.

Long time fan of Nintendo and games in general, I always lean on the quirkier and unique sides of things in particular. It all started when I was lucky enough to get a Gameboy Color and Pokemon Yellow for my tenth birthday and it’s been going strong ever since. I’ve always had a need to get my voice heard and share anything I find interesting with the world.

Cadence of Hyrule: Symphony of the Mask Review

Cadence of Hyrule already made waves for being a totally unexpected crossover between one of Nintendo’s biggest franchises and an indie darling, so it came as a surprise to many of us that even more was planned for the pipeline. The announcement of a season pass came out of nowhere, with a slew of new content being added to the game. The first parts of the pack added new characters and remixed music, but the really exciting bit was the final piece of the expansion, an entirely new story mode introducing a Skull Kid into the game. With a new play style in hand, does Symphony of the Mask live up to the expectations already set by the base game, or does it fall tone death to the melody?

REVIEW – Minoria

In the Kingdom of Ramezia, heretics branded as witches by the Sacred Office have taken over the royal castle and abducted Princess Amelia. Two nuns, Sister Semilla and Anna Fran, are tasked with infiltrating the now desecrated stronghold to rescue the princess and persecute the heretics involved. This serves as the basic outline to the plot of Minoria, a game that treads on the grey moral ground between religious fanaticism and the path of following with nature, which has been deemed sacrilege by higher powers. It’s a lot to take in for such a simple premise. But along the way, you have to ask yourself if it’s enough to carry the narrative forward or if it will stumble on its own lofty ambitions.

I have been gaming for 30 years, starting mostly with PC Gaming, where I developed a penchant for classic point and click games. Over time I discovered Nintendo, starting with the Game Boy and the Super Mario Land games. Here, my love for Nintendo grew as I discovered many of their other franchises, from Zelda to Pokémon. These days I play a bit of everything but Nintendo and their unique creativity always keeps me coming back for more.

REVIEW – Cadence of Hyrule – Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring The Legend of Zelda

We often get plenty of crossover games in this industry, where two companies come together to create something new by combining one IP with another, often leading to a genre blending experience. Nintendo isn’t exactly a stranger to this concept, having done a fair few crossovers over the years, particularly with Super Smash Bros. But they shocked us when they announced that they had partnered with an indie studio with one of their biggest IPs. By partnering with Brace Yourself Games they allowed them to combine the rhythm action of Crypt of the NecroDancer with the tried and true classic formula of The Legend of Zelda, leading to the inception of Cadence of Hyrule.

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!
