The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes - limited demo now out in Japan

It seems that a Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes demo is now out in Japan to a select few. Those who were chosen are given three codes so that they and two friends can play the demo online. Catch is, it only works at specific times, much like the Splatoon Global Testfire from earlier this year

Those times right now are:

  • 10/10, 23:00-24:00
  • 10/11, 10:00-11:00
  • 10/17, 23:00-24:00
  • 10/18, 10:00-11:00

No word if this demo will make it overseas, but it does found fun!

Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis - review

Here's a Nintendolife review of the DS Virtual Console game Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis

In conclusion, Mario vs Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis is a decent enough distraction. It's fun without being too frustrating and is a pleasant way to pass a few hours on a Sunday afternoon. Strangely the later games in the series simplified the controls even more; pick this up after playing Tipping Stars and you'll be surprised at how much more depth is on offer here. While Mario vs Donkey 2: March of the Minis is by no means an unmissable classic (plus we think the original game is still the better option) if you are a fan of the series or puzzle-action games in general this is definitely worth a look.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS - update 1.1.2 out now

We mentioned earlier today that a patch was due out soon that would fix a glitch involving Diddy Kong. Well, that update is now out, so feel free to play without worrying about Diddy!

GoNintendo 'End of Day' thought - What does the NX need to be a hit?

Shopping for dress clothes is a very trying experience when you're a big guy that never dresses up. Not one of the best ways I've spent my time off, but it had to be done! Sad part is, I still have more to do! Oh well, I sure hope you guys enjoyed your night for me! See you in a few, short hours.

You can all me a Nintendo fanboy all you want. I would hope that longtime readers know that I do love Nintendo, but I am not a Nintendo apologist. I don't agree with/like everything the company does. With all that said, I'm putting forth this statement. I really do love the Wii U. It has some hiccups that irk me, such as game loading time among other things, but I really do enjoy the system a great deal.

It makes me quite sad to see that people didn't latch onto the Wii U. We all know that Nintendo systems start at a deficit when it comes to building buzz. There's a large portion of people that just hate what Nintendo does no matter what. They just don't like the company and are out to spread the bad word on anything/everything they do. Sure, Microsoft and Sony have their wars between platforms, but it seems like large portions of both sides team up to bash Nintendo.

It is what it is and time moves on. Nintendo had a huge hit with the Wii and has had a swing/miss with Wii U. That's why the NX is on its way to us. We're going to learn about it in 2016 and I wouldn't be surprised if we saw it release before the year closed out. Only time will tell, but you can be sure that Nintendo has been using that time to do all they can to make the NX a success. Having it receive a lukewarm response like the Wii U could make for some very troubling future moves.

It's easy to make features and plan out ideas. It's pretty much impossible to guarantee a success. Nintendo can only do what they think will draw in an audience and capture the imaginations of millions. That's why I have this question for you guys. What do you think the NX absolutely needs/has to do in order to become a success? What features need to be included to get people to pick one up? What elements do you have on your list of must-haves?
