According to new information, we now know that Nintendo will be using the Nintendo Muppets in future video projects. The puppets will not be E3-video exclusive.
Good because they were awesome.
SMH @ the disagrees. Where's your sense of humour and pride. Y'all want Nintendo to grow up don't you and become the same as MS and Sony? Ok that might be too drastic. Let's hope they can be both right? Killer powerful new console like back in the ol N64 days being "the most powerful console on Earth". And a variety of games which appeal to the hardcore gamers and established brands for the family.
Did you not know? It's cool to hate on Nintendo, even though these same people wish for Nintendo to make games on their preferred console. OT: The muppets were great, probably one the best parts of the event.
You got disagrees because the muppets were far from awesome, IMO. The problem was not so much the muppets, but whoever written the stuff. I was shaking my head the whole time. Japanese have a different sense of humor then the rest of the world, and boy did it show.
I wasn't sure if I was watching an episode of Sesame Street or and E3 Direct because those muppets where cringe worthy during the skits (filler) and not funny at all. Its hard to defend Nintendo when someone calls them kiddy after showing something like that IMO. I just want a regular on stage presentation... ;)
Its the new standard thumbnail for every wiiU doom and gloom article on this site.
They created the puppets because it was getting embarrassing coming out on stage in person to tell everyone that they have nothing good to show the audience.
I thought the muppets were hilarious to be honest. I didn't mind them at all. They were even able to capture those quirky facial expressions and reactions. Nothing wrong with injecting a little humour into these things. Just be sure you bring the games next time.
I didn't notice any difference, Nintendo has been run by Muppets for years.
@Angel - lol.. well said
@ Angeljuice Bubs that was good.
OMFG my sides my sides :D
I liked the muppets.....best part of the digital event. The rest was just meh but that's ok. I don't need Nintendo to be anything other then what they are. They make some of the best games and as long as they keep doing that, I will be a happy gamer
The whole Iwata's Bananas bit had me in stitches. It's good to see that Nintendo can laugh at themselves sometimes.XD
Well they probably spent several thousands of dollars on each one. 😁 *I really like how they capture the essence of each of those guys.
At first when I saw these I was like "heh, cute". Then came the show and I'm like, "this is where you stopped rehearsing for your show. SMH.". I have a sense of humor but the joke can be ruined. Make it count next time, Nintendo.
Best part of the Digital Event xD
More than likely we'll see them in the StarFox Nintendo Direct. Which is pretty damn cool because they are so adorable and were the funniest thing to happen all E3. Plus that walk cycle they have is just so badass...i want a muppet remake of Reservoir Dogs!
Well, when you enlist the Henson Company to make some custom Muppets for you, you better well use 'em.
I enjoyed them them so I am all for it.
Only great thing at the event.
Good. Because that was the only good part of the digital presentation. Well, that and the Starfox gameplay reveal.
better make good games
