Every year, Nintendo releases a new edition of their company handbook — a book that’s packed with every think an employee of Nintendo needs to know. Compared to most company handbooks, I’d have to say this looks quite stunning.
Who plans to pick it up?
USAopoly has announced that they’re releasing monopoly sets for both the Pokemon and Zelda franchises. They’re set for release this September and will cost $45 each. The details are scarce at the moment but the Pokemon set will be set in the Kanto region.
There will also be a Super Mario edition of Connect 4 released during the spring.
As expected, TwitchPlaysPokemon is back. This time around though, tens of thousands of people are playing through Pokemon Crystal, and of course: it’s just as frustrating as ever to watch. In either case, check it out after the break.
WayForward has confirmed via Twitter that Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse won’t be released within the next few weeks as previously planned. Instead, the game will be “in development for a couple more months while [they] add a few finishing touches.”
We’re creeping forever closer to the release of Yoshi’s New Island and you can check after the break for a look at the introduction and opening cut-scene. There’s also some gameplay footage of Super Yoshi.
You can find more screenshots from Yoshi’s New Island after the break.
After sixteen days, the gamers involved with TwitchPlaysPokemon have finished Pokemon Red. But the show will go on with a new stream beginning soon to hopefully conquer one of the 2nd generation games. It’ll surely take longer to finish each subsequent games but I’m very curious how much progress can be made through the whole series.
You can check out over 19 minutes worth of footage from Yoshi’s New Island after the break. The game itself arrives later this month.
Masahiro Sakurai has shared the above image, revealing that Dedenne will appearing in the next Smash Bros. title. But don’t expect Dedenne to be a playable character. It’s much more likely they’ll come out of a Poké Ball.
