Wii U dev kit.. just so we can see how it looked from final product.
and gamepad prototype
I lean towards fake on the NX controller leak. There has been some good discussion on other boards and some have created their own mockups. Some went as far saying what if it can display a 21:9 aspect ratio lol.
Here is a nice mock up... full screen shown in rectangular window with extra viewing extended outward due to the freeform display.
For those comparing the Link model from the Wii U tech demo and TWP HD.. while the model artistically is similar, the TWP HD one appears to be a bit lower in poly. The lighting in the tech demo though really does benefit the look of Link.
We heard earlier today that Emily Rogers and Liam Robertson were teasing that they were aware of the existence of a unannounced Wii U title and were willing to spill the beans on Monday. Well, it seems as though they have lifted the lid early on the announcement and the game they were planning to reveal is Paper Mario for the Wii U. Apparently the game is currently being localised and tested. Hereâ€™s what Emily had to say!
Yes, it's that time of the year again. New Year New Me, right? Wether you think this is a dumb holiday, what are some thing you would like to change/start doing for the better? I'm sure everyone has something to share.
As for me, I've been trying to get a better control of my time, not die, not kil anyone and remember to correctly flush my broken toilet.
My goals.. aka resolutions are more time with family, less stress, and more video games. Seriously. Running a business takes a lot out of me both time and energy so I am trying to find a better balance.
In the newspaper Mainichi Shimbun, Kimishima elaborated on his business plans for the company moving into 2016 and itâ€™s bigger than what any of us expected. According to the article, Kimishima says he wants to surprise fans with new ideas instead of building on old ones. Details about the Nintendo NX will be revealed in 2016, but perhaps most interesting is Kimishimaâ€™s other plans.
Last year we learned that Nintendo and Universal Studios have partnered to build a theme park featuring Nintendoâ€™s iconic cast of characters. In Kimishimaâ€™s statement, he says that the expansion and licensing for these endeavors is going well, but that heâ€™s also looking into movies and TV anime for character licensing.
While this is traditionally a move away from the core gaming experiences that Nintendo is known for, Kimishima says that his company must experiment with new business models in order to be successful. He hopes to bring profits for the company to 100 billion yen, which is around $855 million. No time frame was given for that goal, but the amount of money is four times the profit from Nintendoâ€™s financials last year.
Finally, Kimishima mentions Nintendoâ€™s smartphone efforts and says theyâ€™re rolling along well, with the first app featuring Nintendoâ€™s famous characters to be rolled out in March
