Zelda Wii U’s Visual Style Draws Inspiration From Anime

My Nintendo News

The Legend of Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma has revealed that the visual style of the upcoming Zelda for Wii U drew inspiration from anime. Before deciding which art direction the game should take, Aonuma and the rest of the development team wanted to make sure they would settle on a distinguishing look. Aonuma previously said that Zelda for Wii U looks “more amazing” now compared to when it was first unveiled. The title is expected to make another appearance at next year’s E3.

“I was told by many people that it was ‘beautiful,’ Aonuma said. “I thought about various ways to make the graphical style fit the vast new Zelda world; imitating the real world attached an important feeling of realism, and making it look different to the past [Zelda titles], this was done by drawing inspiration from Japanese animations. Now, compared to what we showed you at E3, it has…

This Super Smash Bros Player Has Encountered Some Insanely Disturbing Character Glitches (Video)

My Nintendo News

Super Smash Bros for Wii U has been available in North America for just a few days and has been relatively glitch-free, unlike its counterpart 3DS version. But while European fans must wait until November 28 to begin their battle, one US Smash player bought his copy of the Wii U brawler and began uploading some rather interesting glitched images yesterday on Nintendo’s social network Miiverse.

As you can see in the video embedded above, Miiverse user T-Man is in possession of a rare copy of the brawler, which has allowed creepy-pasta levels of insanity to make its appearance – particularly in character rendering. King Dedede, Meta Knight, Fox and Kirby all have warped faces or limbs sticking in places where you didn’t even think was possible. But it’s not just these characters that are affected, it appears to be the entire roster – Charizard with elongated limbs,

IGN Reviews Pokemon Alpha Sapphire & Omega Ruby And Gives It 7.8

Disappointing.

My Nintendo News

The reviews for Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire have started to come pouring in and the first to review the games is IGN. The publication has awarded the remakes a solid 7.8 out of 10 stating that Nintendo has done a fantastic job of recreating Hoenn. However the site says that there’s just too many water Pokemon and too many HMs. Here’s their verdict and you can read the full review, right here.

As a 3D remake, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby do a fantastic job of reintroducing Hoenn. Little details, like characters turning their heads to look as you pass or flocks of Wingulls flying overhead, make the region really come to life, and small updates and tweaks help make the journey smoother. Still, a few of its flaws are even more glaring in 3D, especially the excess water Pokémon and often dull navigation of…

Geoff Keighley Is Paying For The Game Awards 2014 Out Of His Own Pocket

My Nintendo News

Journalist and presenter Geoff Keighley has revealed that he is paying for The Game Awards 2014 out of his own pocket. The awards were previously called the VGA’s and weren’t particularly taken to by gamers. Let’s hope this year’s event will be an improvement.

“The investment is my own. I’m bankrolling it and we’re trying to sell some sponsorships. But there are no submission fees.”

“There is a fair amount of risk involved, though he declined to say how much of his own money he had to put up for the show. “I thought about doing a Kickstarter, but I would feel awkward doing that. I think I need to take this on myself to prove I can do it. I need to prove to everyone this is going to be great. If I were to Kickstart it there would have been a fair amount of skepticism.”
