Nintendo approached by UK schools to bring Nintendo Labo into the classroom

Quite a few people have talked about how Nintendo Labo is much more than a game. It can be a learning tool in multiple ways, and it seems some schools have taken notice of this potential. Nintendo UK has said that they've been approached by several schools about bringing Nintendo Labo into the classroom. As for Nintendo making a move on that idea and working with schools, there's been no official confirmation yet. That said, it certainly seems like something Nintendo would love to take advantage of.

Platinum Games wants to bring The Wonderful 101 to Switch, talks Bayonetta 3's progress

PlatinumGames' wonder duo Atsushi Inaba and Hideki Kamiya appeared at Reboot Develop 2018 to talk about all of their projects in the works, as well as some that they'd like to see happen. Kamiya himself reached out to the crowd at the event to see if they were interested in a Switch port of The Wonderful 101. Kamiya's statements are shared below via a translator.

"We're going to knock the audience participation up a bit. They're still trying to negotiate with Nintendo whether a possible Wonderful 101 Switch release could happen but it always helps when the people in the audience at Reboot clap if they'd actually buy a Switch version of Wonderful 101. So anybody who would buy that, please clap..."

Following that question, Eurogamer had a chance to chat with Platinum Games' Atsushi Inaba about the idea. Once again, comments are being handled by a translator.

"From their perspective obviously there are things they can't talk about, about dealings they have with Nintendo. Certainly they can say everything they said during the speech, which was, 'Hey, we should do that.' But whether that is a 'we are going to do that', and what the likelihood is of that happening, is just going to have to be something you wait to find out."

Inaba also took a moment to share a tiny bit of insight into the development of Bayonetta 3.

"Bayonetta 2 was a fantastic title and they need to make sure this is leaps and bounds above that. They know that the fans expect crazier, better, tighter action games. If they're going to put out Bayonetta 3, it's going to have to raise the bar."

Night Trap: 25th Anniversary Edition coming to the Switch



After 24 years, the cult classic is FINALLY making its way to the Switch. It might not be the best game quality-wise, but it's definitely a campy bit of fun, and a turning point in the game industry. Can't wait to grab this one!

Thanks to Sligeach_eire for the heads up!

Nintendo Labo dev interview: Part 2 - A nose-picking prototype, deciding to use cardboard, and much more

- the first idea the dev team tried that lead to the creation of Nintendo Labo was a pair of scissors
- trying this idea helped the team realize that restricting the Joy-Con to enclosures helped get more accurate data
- most people found the prototypes to be a unique idea that would never get off the ground
- the original prototypes were made with a 3D printer, but plastic would end up being to pricey for the consumer
- the team involved wanted to make something unique for Switch, which is why they gathered to have “prototype parties”
- the team decided to ignore concerns about cost and just let their imaginations run wild
- the team realized that getting data from the IR Camera was a struggle due to the Joy-Con being in motion
- when then put the Joy-Con into a box and it was stabilized, the data from the IR Camera was much easier to use/read
- the first prototype the team created for the Joy-Con IR Camera project is below

- the team used a nose-picking prototype because the nostril was the smallest enclosure they could think of to test their idea
- the IR Camera inside the box responds to movement and translates it to the finger on the screen
- for the nose-picking game, the team used a 3D printer
- the team then went and collected packaging material from the storage room to make a tank prototype

- a Joy-Con is inserted in the bottom, and there are reflective balls suspended beneath the pedals that move up and down
- the tank kept breaking because the player had to put his full body weight on it
- the data from the gyro sensor wasn't being used much either when playing the tank game
- this is when the team decided to shift the whole idea to a pack you wear on your back, which lead to the Robot Kit creation
- Kawamoto had the idea that Nintendo should incorporate the “making” process into the final product
- Nintendo made a music box prototype that they didn't find fun at all
- you turned a handle at different speeds to play the music slower or quicker

- the team didn't see players enjoying this much, as the prototype really doesn't look anything like a music box
- this is where the team learned the importance providing the whole experience to the consumer
- this lead to the idea of using cardboard to let the consumer create the device they would then play with
- all these ideas of customization and building also lead to the idea of the Toy-Con Garage mode
- after the first prototype, the hardware department were thinking of ways that they could put the IR Motion Camera to use
- the hardware team came up with their own prototypes at this point, including an “optical attachment”

- this prototype had reflective tape affixed to it to serve as a marker
- the Joy-Con emits a beam of invisible infrared light that is reflected back by these markers
- this enables the camera to read their movement
- this lead to a fishing rod prototype

- after this, a giant controller out of cardboard was made and was called the “Big-Con”

- you could push the big buttons, and that would move a reflective marker up and down inside the box
- the IR camera would read the motion of the markers
- the hardware team also independently started thinking that cardboard was the way to go for this project
- the hardware and software teams joined forces to share ideas shortly thereafter
- there were a lot of people on the software prototyping team that happened to really enjoy arts and crafts
- their interests ended up influencing the final product
- the initial prototype brainstorming sessions lasted about three weeks
- the team had a lot of prototypes that they pushed aside as they didn't find them to be fun
- the Toy-Con Motorbike designer was previously responsible for overseeing the Nintendo Switch and Joy-Con hardware
- the Nintendo Switch stand designer ended up designing the Toy-Con Piano
- the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller designer worked on another Toy-Con
- the two software art directors for Nintendo Labo worked on The Legend of Zelda and Animal Crossing
- a group of programmers showed the dev team their Toy-Con RC Car auto-driving mode, which they figured out on their own
- Nintendo considered the durability of the materials during the design stage
- they designed the Toy-Con projects so that they wouldn’t break easily
- the team performed extensive durability tests where they were subjected to the same motions and actions thousands of times
- cardboard is typically made from recycled paper, and the recycling process gives a final product with all kinds of materials
- North America, Europe, and Japan produce cardboard sheets for their region to comply with regional requirements
- the more the team worked on their creations, the more they wanted to customize them and give them their own sense of style
- the software includes tips on how to make repairs
- there are videos in the Discover section explaining how best to repair certain things, and how to avoid mistakes
- there is also content on decorating tips, and how to reinforce completed Toy-Con projects
- there are videos on how to replace snapped rubber bands, and how to use masking tape to repair cardboard tears
- there were consumer tests to see how difficult building certain Toy-Con was
- when something came across as too difficult for a child, the team took it back into the workshop and redesigned it
- at the Nintendo Labo preview events, lots of kids ignored the scheduled break times in order to play/build more
- the Robot Toy-Con takes three or four hours to build,
- speaking generally, children six and up can probably handle Nintendo Labo projects with a little assistance from their parents

We get a sneak peek at that in Zelda: Breath of the Wild Master Works book, which contains all sorts of concept art for creatures we never got to see, and different designs for characters that appear in the final game. There's definitely some radically different ideas at play here.

Nintendo gives hope for new Wave Race on Switch

Shinya Takahashi just shared a few words that will put some big smiles on the faces of Nintendo fans. At the BAFTAs, Fandom asked Mr. Takahashi if there was any chance we could see the Wave Race franchise return on Switch. His answer is as follows.

“You may see that game again. We have been trying to make many games and that may be one of them … I personally love Wave Race!”

Wouldn't that be one hell of a reveal for this year's E3? Let's cross our fingers and toes tightly for this one. I'm dying for a trip back to Dolphin Park!
