Nymphia and Splash and Crash are new to me. I wonder what they are about.

gamer424130d ago

Splash and crash is just the european name for kersploosh.

kirbyu4130d ago

Nymphia is Sylveon's Japanese name. But someone in the comments is claiming it's spelled wrong.

SonyNGP4130d ago

...Did they trademark a letter?

I'm done with this world.

MikeMyers4130d ago

The letter U can no longer be used in competing software.

jakmckratos4130d ago

Nintendo....trademarks new stuff...never makes a new series..

Aside from all of the multiple new I.P. they produce each year that people pretend do not exist.

Mario and luigi again and now donkey kong they are so 80`s what about making new games without mario in the title

lilbroRx4129d ago (Edited 4129d ago )

So far, for 2013 they have announced the Wonderful 101(new Nintendo I.P.), Monolith's X(new Nintendo I.P.), Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, Rhythm Hunter: Harmo Knight, Wii U Panorama, Kersploosh, Pushmo(sequel to Crashmo), Measure Up.

Last year they had Crashmo, Gunman Clive, Nintendo Land, Fluidity: Spin Cycle, Kid Icarus Uprising etc.

Then there is also Pikmin 3, Pokemon X/Y, Game and Wario, Wii U Party, Pokemon Scramble U, Fire Emblem Awakening and so on.

Nintendo constantly brings new things to the field. They've never stopped doing so.

This entire rhetoric of Nintendo only being able to sell Mario, Zelda and Metroid games is ridiculous and founded on nothing but spite for Nintendo's record holding success with the characters(they've only made 3 3D zelda, 3 3D Mario's and 3 3D Metroid games in the last 12 years on their consoles).

Now when is Sony going to start making games without Killzone, God of War, Gran Turismo and Uncharted in the title? When is Microsoft going to stop making games with Halo or Gears of War in the title? When is Activision going to stop making games with Call of Duty in the title?

This bitterness towards Nintendo's success is disgusting.

Lying about the power of the "Ultra 64" ..promising an arcade 1:1 port of Killer Instinct and later just having a super poor SNES port of the game + a very gimped version of Killer Instinct 2.

Didnt buy a Nintendo Console since the gamecube, didnt regret it.

darthv729d ago

I'd say them opting to stick to carts for the N64 was probably their biggest blunder. Even more so than their back stabbing deal against Sony. It literally cost them their long time partnership with Square and the FF series. There was not a single FF (or DQ) title on the N64 when there had been ones on the NES and SNES. They came to their senses with the Cube and supported mini DVD so they at least got back into SE's good graces... but the damage was done and FF7 went on to be the biggest FF game and a huge win for PS.

Between the low sales, the shit in the memory that simply dies and the regional crash on the Gamepad. This is a console that will become stupidly rare in a few years.

IRetrouk14d ago

Still got my black one fully working, I should maybe box that bad boy up lol

DarXyde14d ago

It's really funny to think about people harvesting Wii U parts like some organ trafficker and selling them on the dark web.

But sure enough, Nintendo Will probably try to find a way to put a legal bullet in the base of that person's skull.

Chocoburger13d ago (Edited 13d ago )

Actually its the opposite, boxing it up is what will kill the machine. You want it plugged in, and you want to power it on frequently, that's how you'll extend the life of the memory chips. This brief video explains it.

Appreciate the tip chocoburger

badz14914d ago

nah...just their way of saying, just buy the Switch already, you pleb!

FinalFantasyFanatic14d ago

Unfortunately, there are a few games still stuck on that thing, I've been hoping they'd port Xenobalde Chronicles X and Twilight Princess over to the Switch since I didn't buy a WiiU.

MetroidFREAK2114d ago

I still have one in working order. Debating if I should grab a 2nd one before too long

hiawa2314d ago

MY Wiiu is still connected for Wii Punchout, and the Donkey Kong game which comes out on the Switch in January 2025. Almost everything else has been ported over.

Fantastic homage to a memorable part of the original. The authenticity to the source material is outstanding and blows away all of the pathetic Hollywood adaptations that we've had to endure as fans. The addition of Chris Redfield's original actor AND (separate) voice actor is fantastic! Heck, even the CGI was pretty good given the total budget of $55k to make this.
