Today is Nintendo's 131st birthday.

Founded 23rd of September 1889 in Kyoto, Japan.

Didn't they do something really big for the company's 130th birthday last year?

Not that I recall. Maybe they'll do something massive for their 150th in 2039 haha



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

What I'd like them to do next year, particular for E3 (provided the virus is gone at last), is bring back those old animatronic puppets of Mario and Wario.

There was just something delightful about these two puppets!!

Another shadow drop from Nintendo this September !!

Kirby Fighters 2, sequel to the deluxe edition sold previously on the 3DS.
More robust lineup of abilities(and characters !) and a new one to boot, more arenas, story mode, local/online play is what awaits us.

I'm already downloading it. Will extensively play it tomorrow ^^
Also the gameplay is at 60 fps this time in comparison to other Kirby titles on the Switch. Game is less graphically intense than those though, but they've made a good decision since this is basically a fighting game.

Retro's bringing the big guns for Metroid Prime 4's environment art it seems.

They've certainly amassed a great deal of industry talent over the last few years.

What remains to be seen is whether management is still up to the task of actually producing a game, something they haven't done in over six and a half years.

I'm still cautiously optimistic, but emphasis on the optimistic.

Also, here's an old Mario 64 prototype where Mario's stand-in voice was from Mel Blanc.



I wonder when will Monolith Soft's high fantasy RPG be actually announced (as in, giving the name of the game and a trailer/teaser) if it's still a thing.

I forgot that was even a thing. Did anyone say whether it's an original story or based on a per-existing one?

Nothing officially was said but certain things pointed to something original as they were recruiting for people who were knowledgeable in something western centric indicating the high fantasy project may be similar to the likes of Dark Souls or Dragon's Dogma.
