Some Very British Problems (x)
this is basically the story of my life in the form of a single topic twitter. (which pretty much is proof that I’m really the least american american of all.)
Finished up some drawings in my WIP folder today! Had these sitting around for a while~
Wow, these look a lot more detailed than I expected! Nintendo’s first line of interactive figures will feature 12 characters, each selling for $12.99 this holiday season. Wii U games like Smash Bros., Mario Kart 8, Captain Toad, Mario Party 10, and Yoshi’s Wooly World will support the figures, as will other upcoming titles — the 3DS will eventually connect with them too using an NFC accessory or the new 3DS’s built-in support.
You can preorder all of the figures right now on Amazon. We’ve also got more photos after the break. I like how the colored lines in the Amiibo logo are the same as the ones on the *new* 3DS logo.
Xenoblade leads the way in splitting 3DS userbase ⊟
Along with announcing new hardware this morning (special edition new 3DS XLs for Smash Bros. and Monster Hunter 4G also snuck out this morning), Nintendo announced a 3DS port for acclaimed Wii RPG Xenoblade.
Xenoblade is the first announced title that will take advantage of the new 3DS models’ improved CPU — meaning it won’t be playable on the older 3DS, 3DS XL, or 2DS systems. The situation is similar to the DSi, which received DSi-only games that older DSes couldn’t run. I remember quite a bit of confusion and anger over how that was handled..
I’m all for games like Xenoblade that take advantage of the increased capabilities in what’s effectively a new system, but not everyone’s happy to see the 3DS userbase split. Frequent Tiny Cartridge contributor Daniel Feit justified his annoyance by pointing out that handheld lifespans are getting shorter: “Game Boy to Game Boy Color: 9 years. Nintendo DS to DSi: 4 years. Nintendo 3DS to *new* 3DS: 3.5 years.”SUPPORT TINY CARTRIDGE Join Club Tiny!
