The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD E3 2013 Trailer Videos. Developer Direct Interview, Screenshots. Improved Pictograph, Send Messages In Bottles To Other Players Online Via MiiVerse

Zelda Wind Waker HD WiiU Artwork And Screenshots of Toon Link

Looks sooo good!

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD is arguably the game I am most excited for this holiday. Hitting in October, it gives an HD sheen, and a slight update, to one of my favorite games of all time.

Two new features were revealed for The Wind Waker HD. First of all, making use of Miiverse, players can visually send messages to other online players in a super unique way via a new “Message In A Bottle” system called the “Tingle Bottle”. Literally, you write or draw a message, Link puts it in a bottle, and then throws it into the ocean. That Message In A Bottle will then wash up ashore on the islands as other players are playing the game, if they are connected online to MiiVerse. Once they pick up the bottle they can see the message, picture, artwork, hint, etc. that you left! You can even attach an in-game screenshot using the Pictograph and can finally share these shots online with other players via MiiVerse, even putting the photo in the bottle as part of your message!

Send messages in a bottle with the new Tingle Bottle item!

This is an ingenious way to do MiiVerse! Instead of simply sharing messages on the MiiVerse “message board” or seeing the messages pop up on the overworld like speech bubbles, you actually get them delivered as a “Message In A Bottle”. Considering the seafaring adventure that is Wind Waker, this makes perfect sense and fits into the world like a glove! Very awesome!

Nintendo also revealed that they have upgraded the Tingle Tuner item. The original game used the Game Boy Advance GameCube Link cable and a second player could help out the first player by using the second screen on the GBA and controlling Tingle. This allowed them to sell items to Link, give Link the ability to float for a brief period of time, destroy enemies by dropping Tingle Bombs and purchasing items and healing potions for Link with Rupees. Tingle could also see a full map and reveal secrets otherwise inaccessible. Naturally, as one would expect, all of those features return in the new game but are now pulled off by using the WiiU GamePad instead. It sounds like new features or expanded features may have also been added. Exactly how different it has been changed though will have to wait until the game’s release.

Satoru Iwata also revealed that The Wind Waker HD has made a number of tweaks to the gameplay to make this the definitive Wind Waker experience. For example, players can now speed up time as they are sailing, allowing you to get across the ocean much quicker. The slow pace of the Ocean Sailing, especially early on in the game, was one of the chief complaints of Wind Waker (as well as the long drawn out fetch quest towards the end), and it seems like Nintendo is doing what it can to clean it up and making this section less of a chore. Good news!

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker for the GameCube was one of my favorite games of all time. So I can’t wait to play this new prettied up version!

Synopsis
One of the Greatest Adventures of All Time Returns in HD

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker makes its glorious return on the WiiU console with gorgeous HD graphics and enhanced game features. In this timeless classic with a unique and colorful “toon-shaded” art style, players guide Link as he sets out on the massive Great Sea to find his kidnapped sister. Players will sail the seas in search of lost islands, fight fearsome enemies, take on mighty bosses and seek out the legendary Triforce.

Key Zelda: Wind Waker HD Features:

* The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD features 1080p visuals that will immerse players in the game like never before.
* With the WiiU GamePad controller, it’s easy to manage your inventory and view maps.
* Players will enjoy cruising the open sea with a new sail that gives them 50 percent more speed, bringing them to their next destination and action-packed adventure that much faster.
* Once players receive the “Tingle Bottle” item, they can connect with others by posting comments to Miiverse. Through this new feature, comments or screenshots posted on Miiverse will wash up on the shores of other players’ games. It’s like finding a message in a bottle.
* Players can also take and store more pictures with an improved Pictograph and then post them on Miiverse.
* If the television is already in use, this game can been played off-TV on the Wii U GamePad.

Pokemon XY E3 2013 Nintendo Direct Trailers, Videos. All New Fairy Type Revealed (3DS). Now Pet Your Pokemon

Pokemon XY Fairy Type Artwork

All-new Fairy type!

Pokemon XY is coming this October 12th worldwide exclusively for 3DS. Amidst all the craziness at E3 2013 surrounding PS4 and XboxOne, you can’t forget about the massiveness that is Pokemon.

New Pokemon games are coming soon, and this is the first Pokemon game to be rendered in polygonal 3D (with stereoscopic 3D graphics) and the first core game in the series to appear on the Nintendo 3DS.

I don’t really have much to say having not played a core Pokemon game since Pokemon Yellow, but fans definitely love the series and will certainly want to get their grubby hands on this latest version.

All-new Pokemon creatures!

Many new features and updates have been added, among the most important including an all-new Fairy Type of Pokemon and the ability to pet your Pokemon much like in Nintendogs to further bond with them.

Here is some awesome Pokemon XY Wallpaper!

Is Wart In Super Mario 3D World? Put Him In Smash Bros. Wii U Nintendo!

Wart In Super Mario 3D World? Yes Please! Artwork From Super Mario Bros. 2

Please, please put Wart in Smash Bros. WiiU & Super Mario 3D World!

Is Wart the boss of Super Mario 3D World?! COULD IT BE?!

Wart is one of the greatest Nintendo villains ever conceived, and served as the end-boss of Super Mario Bros. 2 for NES (originally a non-Mario game called Doki Doki Panic in Japan, but let’s ignore that fact).

Wart Mario Boss Wallpaper Artwork By SoftNintendo

Beautiful artwork of King Wart!

Sadly the hulking green frog who despises veggies and desires Mario’s flesh, has not been seen in a single game SINCE Super Mario Bros. 2 for NES, released in 1988! However an updated version of Wart appeared again for the first time as a Trophy in Super Smash Bros. Melee or Brawl (…. WAIT! Or am I mistaken? After googling I could not find an image of a Wart Trophy…. I could have sworn he appeared as a Trophy in one of those games though, but maybe I’m getting him confused with King K. Rool) that you could collect and see what he’d look like today with modern graphics. He also made a brief appearence in The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening as the giant frog “King Mondo Mondo”, who teaches you one of the three Ocarina songs.

Now, however, we have a game in which Princess Peach is a PLAYABLE CHARACTER. This means that Bowser cannot kidnap her for the story line. Bowser has not been mentioned… So, this would be the PERFECT time to REVIVE WART as the end boss of Super Mario 3D World, AND follow that up by making Wart a playable character in Super Smash Bros. WiiU/3DS!

COME ON NINTENDO! This is the perfect opportunity to revive an absolutely badass character in King Wart! DOOO IT!

Wart Super Mario Bros. 2 Character Sprites

Sooo awesome! I love this character!

Here is the trailer for Super Mario 3D World for WiiU, with Princess Peach playable. Naturally no mention of Wart…

Here is the trailer for Super Smash Bros. WiiU/3DS! Again, no mention of Wart…. *sadness*

Last but definitely not least, here is the Super Mario Bros. 2 End Boss Wart Fight!

XboxOne Boxart Cover Revealed For Forza 5. Green Colored Boxes Remain

XboxOne Box Artwork Cover Revealed Forza 5

XboxOne official box art!

XboxOne boxart, green-colored, the Forza 5 cover has confirmed the design for the retail boxes of Xbox One games. It’s really cool to see how the boxes will look for the next-generation, and I like the emphasis on green.

I’m big on box art so this is a cool reveal ahead of the actual release of the console.

Videogame Photo of the Day – Nintendo Last Supper Story Artwork Wallpaper (Super Smash Bros. Brawl)

Nintendo Last Supper Story Artwork Wallpaper

The Last Supper Nintendo Style!

Nintendo Last supper story artwork wallpaper! (Smash Brawl) This cool piece of art tells The Last Supper Nintendo-style!

Like the last videogame last supper art that I posted, this one is just as good, if not better. I love the artwork here, it’s very well done. And I like the inclusion of non-Nintendo (though Super Smash Bros. Brawl) characters like Solid Snake and Sonic.

For comparison’s sake, here is Da Vinci’s famous The Last Supper Painting of Jesus and His Disciples.
