Dragon Quest X - More screens for Version 4.2

Check out more here

If Dragon Quest X was announced for localization, would you give the game a shot, or is it simply so far after launch that you've lost interest? I think I'd still have to dive in and give it a shot, but my interest is certainly waning with Dragon Quest XI on the horizon for Switch.

Digital Foundry analysis - Super Mario Galaxy on the NVidia Shield

How might Wii games run on Switch? Well here's a potential answer - with Nintendo's support we have Super Mario Galaxy officially running on an Nvidia Shield TV - using the same Tegra X1 part as its hybrid console. This is thanks to a very accomplished emulator running behind the scenes, though there are plenty of pros and cons to this approach as Tom and Rich discuss.

Choice Provisions interested in returning to the BIT.TRIP series, looking for fan feedback

Runner3 just hit the Switch a couple weeks back, which is the third installment in a series that got its start in the BIT.TRIP franchise. A collection of 6 titles that launched on WiiWare, and eventually other platforms. While the Runner spinoff has had great success, the BIT.TRIP brand hasn't had a new installment in years. Turns out Choice Provisions actually would like to return to the idea, but they aren't sure fans would want it. Her's what Mike Roush of Choice Provisions had to say.

If people want this PLEASE tell us. We have been talking a lot about this internally, and we would love to do this! I would like to bring back that same classic BIT.TRIP art style, but really push some modern effects that we could not really do on the Wii. We would want to modernize the gameplay a bit too, for the modern gamer.

I mean, I definitely would love to see this happen, and I have a feeling others would to. If you are down with the idea, hit up Choice Provisions on social media and let them know!

Thanks to nn64 for the heads up!

An in-depth look at Captain Rainbow

Captain Rainbow never made it outside of Japan, which is a real shame. The game is chock-full of weirdness, fun, and even other Nintendo characters. It seems the Big N just felt there wasn't a market for this one anywhere but in Japan. At least the Captain's legacy can live on through features like this.

Study finds that exergaming with Wii Sports a good fit for less-active heart failure patients

All these years later and Wii Sports is still getting some attention. We've heard about exergaming for years, and Wii Sports as well as Wii Fit really brought the idea to the masses. Now we're seeing how a Wii Sports regiment could be good for those who have suffered from heart failure.

The findings of the HF-Wii study, reported at the European Society of Cardiology 2017 Congress, showed patients assigned to exergaming had better 6-minute walk test (6MWT) results than the control group. On top of that, their self-perception of well-being improved along with functional capacity. Not every patient saw positive results, but the majority certainly saw improvement in numerous areas.

No matter who you are, playing something like Wii Sports can certainly get the blood pumping and maybe even get you to break a sweat. A little exercise would be good for all of us!

FATE: A Tribute to Majora's Mask Lets Music Fans Relive the Legend

SEATTLE - May 25, 2018 - Materia Collective is excited to release FATE: A Tribute to Majora's Mask, a massive 79-track collection of arrangements from the beloved The Legend of Zelda title for the Nintendo 64. FATE offers an eclectic mix of genres and styles that reflect the tone of the original soundtrack, and is divided into three parts: The First Day, a collection of tracks driving the anxiety and elation of the first foray into Clock Town; The Second Day, a melancholy selection representing the denial and doubt that the moon is falling into the Earth; and The Final Day, a shorter yet intense set of pieces accenting both the dread of the end and the glimmer of hope that still shines in the world's final moments. FATE: A Tribute to Majora's Mask is fully licensed and available now.

"The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask stands out because, more than any game in the franchise, it dealt with the positive and negative issues that human beings constantly face - grief, death, the passage of time, fear, rejection, and temptation, but also friendship, reconciliation, perseverance, justice, hope, and love," comment album producers Sam and Peter Bobinski. "These themes made for a unique storytelling experience. The game's musical direction incorporates sounds and instruments typically used in Chinese opera, and explores minimalist styles; neither typically found in Zelda soundtracks. Our favorite moments are the boss pieces and the final encounter with Majora."

"Cherry Blossoms Outside ClockTown" is a refreshing re-imagining of the Clock Town theme, combining elements of orchestral, funk, and Japanese folk music to create a beautiful and mysterious atmosphere. "Nova Onda Bossa" is the debut of Materia Brasilis, an ensemble dedicated to arranging game music in the styles of Brazilian music. Laura Intravia's "The True Face" is a choral and orchestral tour-de-force depicting the final battle of the game, taking the listener through an intense musical journey.

Super Mario Odyssey's RC car track gets ported to Mario Kart Wii, thanks to modders

I've poured so much time into trying to get the fastest laps in Super Mario Odyssey's RC car track. Now I can enjoy the same track on a much grander scale, thanks to this Mario Kart 8 mod! Let's hope Nintendo takes a hint and includes this in the next Mario Kart game!

Random Time! - 3D printer used to play the Mii Channel theme

I wonder if Nintendo knew how much of a long-lasting impact the Mii Channel theme would make on the public. People just love the song! I'm sure plenty of other weird/fun covers of the song are on the way.
