Ready for more info on upcoming Wii U and 3DS games? Of course you are! And Nintendo is going to deliver just that tomorrow morning, during yet another Nintendo Direct presentation.
The show kicks off tomorrow, May 17th, at 7am PT / 10am ET at Nintendo.com. We won't know what exactly Nintendo has in store for us until the broadcast begins, but fans can expect updates on Wii U and 3DS games coming this summer. As for titles a little further down the green pipe, Nintendo says they'll be holding another Nintendo Direct "before the start of E3 2013."
What are hoping to see during tomorrow's broadcast? Games straight from Nintendo, or some third-party action? Let us know!
Unlike recent weeks, Nintendo has quite a bit of new content heading to 3DS and Wii U with today's eShop update. One of the most welcome additions is "Super Metroid," which can be picked up via the Wii U Virtual Console for just $0.30 this month. In addition, Wii U owners can get "Super Mario Bros. 2" at 50% off this week when they purchase the Virtual Console version of "Super Mario World." There's A LOT more to see, so keep reading!
The creators of Cartoon Network's "Adventure Time" don't bury the series' 8-bit inspirations too deep: it's not uncommon for the series to play with the tropes of classic dungeon crawlers as animated hero Finn goes on whatever monster-slaying, treasure-hunting quest is set before him that week, set to a chiptune soundtrack. The season 5 episode "Mystery Dungeon" plays with these elements well, putting a mismatched group of the show's side characters together for an unexpected, stupid journey.
Anyway, that's all to say that D3 Publisher's announcement of their second "Adventure Time" game is a welcome one. Instead of going handheld as they did with the "Zelda II"-like "Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d You Steal Our Garbage?!," this fall's "Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW!" will be headed to consoles and the PC.
The Pokemon Company has released a new gameplay trailer for the upcoming "Pokemon X" and "Pokemon Y," giving fans a look at some all-new Pokemon, plenty of battles and the Kalos region's central location, Lumiose City. We also get our first good look at the game's new form of transportation, the rideable Pokemon Gogoat.
A recent feature in Japanese magazine CoroCoro has revealed a handful of new details on "Pokemon X" and "Pokemon Y," including the games' interesting new setting and the first Pokemon that trainers will actually be able to ride.
With the recent announcement of intergalactic bounty hunter Lobo coming to "Injustice" as the first DLC character, we got to thinking about others who would be a great fit for developer Netherrealm Studios' DC Universe fighting game.
After the jump, we've got a list of ten characters who would be essential picks (and maybe should have been in the game at release), offering Batman, Lex Luthor, and the rest of the "Injustice" heroes and villains some formidable challenges while mining the legacy of the DC Universe.
