It’s official; Fire Emblem Heroes is Nintendo’s next app. During a scheduled video direct, Nintendo announced four new Fire Emblem games to be released in the next couple of years. Players will be able to take Fire Emblem wherever they go for hours of classic strategic gameplay. The game will be free to play and available on Feb 2nd on both iOS and Android.
For years, Paper Mario had been one of those unique Mario spin-off games. It turned a typical platformer game into a story driven, character building RPG experience. Nintendo fans loved sitting down for hours exploring the paper Mushroom Kingdom on their N64 or GameCube. Even the Wii’s Super Paper Mario provided an engaging story and interesting villains. Yes, sir; things were looking good for the Paper Mario series back in the day. Then, tragedy struck. Out of the darkest voids of Miyamoto’s mind came the mistake no one asked for: Sticker Star.
Most Paper Mario fans could write pages upon pages about how bad the 3DS game was. Fortunately, this is not a Sticker Star review. Four years after Sticker Star’s release, Nintendo casually announced the next Paper Mario game: Sticker Star 2. At least, that was the initial reaction. While the trailer looked good in HD, the gameplay looked nothing like the original two games. Fans complained, pressed dislike buttons repeatedly, commented harshly on forums, and signed petitions; it was quite the mess.
Now that Color Splash is out, I can honestly say it is not Sticker Star 2. Color Splash is a good game.
This week we reminisce in the Wii U’s Successes. This episode was hot on the tails of Nintendo’s announcement that the Wii U was ending production. It is the end of the era, with the Nintendo Switch right on the horizon. To give the Wii U one last hurrah, we talk about what made it special and what games are worth any player’s time.
It’s Pokémon’s 20th anniversary. They’ve given us event after event this year. Plenty of mythical Pokémon events, Pokémon Go, the Pokémon anime had one of it’s best seasons and a well-animated YouTube series of Pokémon shorts. All this was in culmination for the greatest release this year: Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon.
But the question is, does Pokémon Sun live up to the hype? Let’s find out.
Mighty Number 9 had a very long and painful development. This game had very high expectations, yet it missed the mark time and time again for release. They even had to launch a second Kickstarter for voice acting. But, I’m not here to scrutinize a company’s embezzlements. Instead I’m here to talk about the game. So, hold on tight. This is going to be rough.
