Zelda still coming to Wii U

Zelda still coming to Wii U

Don't fret, lovers of Zelda, word from Miyamoto himself suggests that Zelda will be coming to Wii U. Just this past March, Nintendo suggested that Zelda might not be coming to Wii U after all - instead heading to their next game platform "codename NX". Today, Miyamoto suggests that while the game might not be coming inside 2015, it'll still be coming to Wii U. Nintendo's current hero console will, eventually, get the Link it's been hoping for since inception. The greatest Zelda adventure to ever grace a console, of course.

Nintendo’s Amiibo cross over to Skylanders

This week Nintendo crossed a barrier - they've announced Amiibo for Skylanders. These Amiibo will be cross-platform functional - cross-game, that is to say, don't cross your fingers for Amiibo working outside of the Nintendo hardware universe just yet. These characters work with Amiibo abilities as they always would, but also working in the new game Skylanders SuperChargers. The first Amiibos introduced this way are Donkey Kong and Bowzer. These new characters will take on new abilities and forms - and they'll have their own special vehicles usable in the Skylanders universe, too.

Nintendo leaks new Amiibo via twitter

You never know what type of games and game hardware are going to send people into a collecting frenzy. I'd wager Nintendo hoped that its Amiibo would be popular, but I doubt that the company figured that demand would be so high that it would crash GameStop. Demand has been so high that Nintendo promised to up production in the midst of an Amiibo shortage. Amiibo fans are eagle eyed when it comes to looking for new products.

Nintendo denies rumored Android plans for “NX”

Nintendo denies rumored Android plans for “NX”

Yesterday rumor surfaced that Nintendo is considering using Android for its upcoming codenamed "NX" console. Such information came from Nikkei -- where it tends to surface -- and as expected Nintendo has cropped up to deny the rumor. Of course, this same pattern has played out before -- Nikkei making a claim and then Nintendo denying it -- and so whether the rumor is true is still anyone's guess. Nintendo says no, the rumor mill disagrees, and ultimately you just shouldn't get your hopes too high.
