No offence to Earthbound fans, but what's the big deal here ? Everybody is excited for a NES game ? Come one folks ! Ok, that's a nice surprise I guess, but that's not a Megaton at all !!!

Hopefully the big titles are announced tomorrow.

I've never played any earthbound. I've got no idea whether it's all about nostalgic feelings or if it's an everlasting gem.

I finally played it a few years ago, I think in 2011, and I thought it was very good. The combat gets tedious, but the writing is good, the music is good, and the locations you go to are good. The ending of the game is really great. Mother 3 is supposed to be better, and Mother 1 (now Earthbound Beginnings) is supposed to be worse.

Triforce Heroes is probably day one. Mario Maker...I dunno. I know it's gonna be awesome, but the best parts of it will most likely be ridonkulous "impossible platformer" stuff, and my skills don't usually match my patience level for those types of games.

On Rodea, beware the Wii U version.

Yep. Best version of the game is the Wii version.

I find it kinda odd that Minecraft: Story Mode is coming to the Wii-U but not the main game. I mean, this isn't exactly the kind of game that'd do poorly on a Nintendo system...or any system, really

It makes no sense whatsoever...

Minecraft should be on EVERY single platform.

Actually, it's on every single platforms except the Wii U and 3DS...

Looking forward to get Dragon Ball Extreme Budoten. I'm a HUGE fan of Dragon Ball Z Budoten 2 on the SNES ; Extreme seems to receapture the spirit of that legendary game.

I haven't seen any update about 90s Arcade Racer and there are some new nasty comments on its kickstarter page. It's on dev hell for a couple of years. I hope they sort it out.

Kickstarter projects can be a bitch
I just read one of the new-ish comments on Kickstarter, and it's hard to argue with 'em.

I dont want a refund. I finally want the game, that i originally backed for and that was scheduled for Dec. 2013(!!!). This is really getting ridiculous. I dont care about the WiiU Port at all.

People paid this guy money to release a videogame...a game he said he had all he needed to finish in Feb. 2013. He said it'd be out in 2013, but had to delay it. Which is OK. Stuff happens, and mid-2014 was still a stretch, but hey, not an unacceptable one. ...but then gameplay wasn't shown off at all until this past January. The game has been delayed for nearly two years now.

This is where Kickstarter hits the skids. Videogame development isn't a charity. People don't pay money for you to build a videogame when you feel like it - telling your backers "hey, I took a summer off to do other work, despite you all pledging me £16,039" (about $25,000, if google is right on the exchange rate) evaporated a lot of good will.

The game looks cool as hell. The guy obviously has talent. But you can't really pocket 25 grand as of Feb. 2013 and fuck off with it. Bunky Collier would've pulled out somebody's tooth for being this behind on a loan.

Let's assume that the unannounced games are Twilight Princess HD and/or Pikmin 4. I can't recall a Nintendo game of that caliber being announced just weeks before its release. This is Apple type of reveal. Not sure it works well for games. though.

I don't understand the reasoning of Nintendo to reveal those games so close to their release date. I mean you need to market those games a little. And this is pretty busy period with so many competitors out there.

Its unusual for Nintendo to announce a game so close to its release, but I don't see issue with it at all. Nintendo gamers are typically far more attentive to what Nintendo has going on. It doesnt take weeks or months of time to communicate with consumers. It was different years ago when gamers got their news from video-game magazines, but those days are over, and I am certain these games will be shown in their next Nintendo Direct, which I expect to be shown within a couple weeks. Lets face it, do you really think the news of Zelda Twilight Princess HD wouldn't spread like wildfire within hours of announcement? Hell, its already a pretty hot rumor.

If Pikmin 4 is indeed the other game, and I will suddenly be broke if it is because I will have four Wii U games to buy in a short amount of time, but I have a feeling its there to help fill the void left by Star Fox Zero. I would guess that in this scenario, Nintendo was completing Pikmin 4 quicker than expected, and when they realized they needed more time for Star Fox Zero, they may have increased resources for Pikmin 4 in order to make a holiday 2015 release. Pikmin 4 was probably planned to be an early 2016 release that would have headlined a Nintendo Direct in January. Lets face it, if Nintendo were to have a direct that not only announced these two games, but also a Wii U price cut ($199), then Nintendo could be creating a scenario where they really surge in the last couple months of the year.

So why Nintendo would bother making commercials then ? If just the announcement of Zelda game guarantee sales, they would not spend millions each times they advertise a big game.

Usually when a game is announced next to launch, it's because a company doesn't have much advertisement money. So they avoid announcing the game too early, otherwise, they don't have the money to sustain the game visibility for months.

So I just think Nintendo wants to invest the minimal marketing budget for those games. Some of the Wii U marketing budget must have shifted toward NX and mobile. The NX and mobile games launch will require HUGE marketing budget in 2016.

Its shifted towards the bottom line more than anything. Commercials are still used to attract the more casual audience, they want their money to. However, the bulk of these games sales will come from you core userbase, and thats what directs target effectively.

Looking bad for the unannounced Wii U games. Looks like that may have come from a misstranslation. :-(

I'm somewhat interested in Stella Glow and Yo-Kai Watch but I have other games coming out next year that interest me quite a bit more, for the 3DS, PS4, and Wii-U

I think I'm sold on Yo-Kai Watch after reading about the battle system.

Combat in Yo-kai Watch is in real-time and battles move very quickly. For combat, the 3DS bottom screen displays a wheel with six spokes, with each spoke being an available Yo-Kai in your active party. You have three Yo-kai at a time on the battlefield, and can rotate this lineup by spinning the wheel. The placement of each Yo-kai on the wheel has major effects on combat, as setting Yo-kai of the same type next to one another grants a stat boost to the party, such as higher attack speed or stronger hits. Your Yo-kai will randomly attack on their own--you can't choose which moves to use--and each hit slowly fills up their Soultimate gauge. A Soultimate is a powerful signature move that deals much more damage than a regular attack. Depending on Yo-kai placement on the wheel and the boosts they have, you could have most of your six creatures ready for their big attack at any given time and rotate them in and out as they are ready.

The ability to rotate your Yo-kai on and off the field is an excellent feature because it allows you to stock your wheel with Yo-kai equipped to combat any kind of enemy. Think you'll run into a fire Yo-kai? Keep an ice Yo-kai handy. Is there a big boss coming up? Keep a few heavy-hitters in your line-up and keep them in reserve until the boss is weak, then bring them out swinging. It allows for a deeper battle strategy than simple one-on-one combat can offer, and being able to switch on the fly keeps you thinking and on your toes.

The Soultimate gauge and rotation abilities keep you on your toes during combat, but it's how you execute those Soultimate attacks that really makes you sweat. To use a Soultimate, you complete a number of minigames on the bottom 3DS screen. Minigames include using the stylus to quickly trace three shapes, pop gold bubbles, or rapidly spin a dial. The seconds in which you complete these minigames sometimes mean the difference between life and death; if you're fighting a powerful Yo-kai, there's always the chance he will target and knock out the Yo-kai you are prepping to Soultimate while you're mid-charge. Using minigames to charge and execute an attack is way more fun that simply mashing a button and biding your time.

I've been playing P&D like a fiend because marrying match-three to an RPG/monster collector is like crack. Extending that to touch games is a logical extension.

Yeah. Do want.

Yeah. Do want.
That use of touch games during the action look like those original and brilliant games that we got for DS back in the days. Some of them from Level-5 itself.

And they're not stupid touch games, they fit well during the battle action. The battle system seems to be smart and ridiculously fun.

Level-5 is a company that always have used the best of DS/3DS features. Sometimes they can deliver greater things than Nintendo.

I guess when Nintendo said there were games still unannounced coming for this year, they were referring to the fiscal year ( ending March 2016 ).

Twilight Princess HD is indeed going to be released this fiscal year, in March 2016, but not in 2015 ( calendar year )...

2015 was really a poor year for Nintendo consoles.

Xenoblade X and Fast Racing Neo
Same.

Also, since this was bumped, I thought I'd check back on 90's Arcade Racer. Another update saying "it's almost done." But it gets better:

"With 90s arcade racer's development coming to an end I decided to spent some time on another project i started a while ago."

In fairness, this new project will be free to 90's Arcade Racer backers, but I'm pretty sure precisely zero of those backers want to hear "so I'm working on something else besides the long-delayed game you backed."

Seriously, someone make a Kickstarter to get this guy a PR assistant. I'm sure he's a genuinely nice fellow, and he's obviously talented, but him posting on social media hasn't been beneficial for his product.
