I finally felt the need to create a mega thread for the latest Nintendo is bringing out over the next few months including games, consoles and new features.
New 3DS Announced:
On August 29 a new 3DS was announced featuring more buttons a new analog stick and the ability to play Wii Games such as XenoBlade and have the ability to use the new amiibo feature.
The equivalent price in Japan is about £150 so high hopes for a cheap ugrade.
12 Amiibo characters announced:
For those unfamiliar to Amiibo, it is a figure which stores character information (much like Skylanders) and you will be able to transfer these character data between Wii U and 3DS. Many assume that it is a simple pay-to-win whereas the reality is you have to train the amiibos to be strong fighting against them to improve there levels in the case of the new Super Smash Bros. So far Amiibo has already been confirmed to work with Super Smash Bros and Mario Kart 8 with plenty more titles to be announced for.
3DS themes to be released in October:
In a title update which will be released in October there will be the ability to customise your 3ds with themes much similar to Xbox 360. The first lot of themes are from games such as Legend Of Zelda, Animal Crossing and both the new and old style Mario.
Mario Kart 8 DLC announced:
Two Packs have been announced for Mario Kart 8, the first will consist of Tanooki, Cat Peach and Link as well as four new vehicles and eight new tracks.
The second pack consists of Villager, Isabelle (Both from the Animal Crossing Franchise) and Dry Bowser. Again this pack comes with four new vehicles and eight new tracks.
You are able to pre-order both packs for £11 or £7 each and the the first pack will be released in November and the second is released in May. However for pre-ordering you get Eight different coloured Yoshi and ShyGuy Characters. Yes I have pre-ordered both packs myself.
Hyrule Warriors to be released 19/09/14 UK, 26/09/14 NA:
For those unfamiliar the new Hyrule Warriors is a combination of the Hack and Slash similar to Dynasty Warrior mixed with the characters from the Legend of Zelda franchise. The game itself looks massively entertaining with many things to do and many characters to play as. So far the list consists of.http://zeldawiki.org/Characters_in_Hyrule_Warriors
Sorry the list is too long and I'm lazy now a days.
Another interesting feature is the splitscreen, the reason it is interesting is that rather than two people having to share a single screen Hyrule Warriors makes it so One player plays solely on the Wii U Pad and the second player has the entire screen for them self.
However if you want too find out more about this game.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyrule_Warriors
That is it for September and Next month I will be posting a bigger list due to the release of the themes, bayonetta two, super smash bros for 3ds and many more.
