According to a report done by the Wall Street Journal earlier today, Nintendo is planning on continuing to make mobile games inspired by some of our favorite titles. One of Nintendo’s most loved and respected series is next to receive the mobile game treatment: The Legend of Zelda.

However, we still have some time to wait before the game will be released. In the meantime, mobile gamers have the Animal Crossing mobile game to look forward to. The mobile version of the beloved Animal Crossing series is expected to come out sometime later this year. Sources say that the Legend of Zelda mobile iteration will release sometime after that, so hopefully sometime next year. Nintendo is working closely with the Tokyo-based DeNA Co for both of their upcoming mobile titles.

Legend of Zelda

Unfortunately, that is all we seem to know about the Zelda mobile game at the moment. With the handful of mobile titles that Nintendo has released in the past couple years like Pokemon GO!, Super Mario Runand Fire Emblem Heroesone cannot help but wonder if it will be something similar to one of these titles or if it will be something completely different. The next question would be: will it be free to play?

Despite Super Mario Run’s $10 price point and bigger fan base, the free to play Fire Emblem Heroes actually brings in more money with its in-game transactions than the latter. So, who knows what the mobile Zelda game might look like? However, with the wild success of Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, it will not come as a surprise to anyone if the mobile game does incredibly well also.

As more information becomes available about the mobile game, you can find it here on The Nerd Stash! What would you like to see the mobile version of the Legend of Zelda lool like? Let us know in the comments below!

New 2DS XL: Rumors of A New Nintendo Portable Were…Sorta True http://thenerdstash.com/rumors-new-2ds-xl-portable-sorta-true/ http://thenerdstash.com/rumors-new-2ds-xl-portable-sorta-true/#respond Thu, 11 May 2017 00:39:00 +0000 http://thenerdstash.com/?p=62845 Nintendo has kind of a weird clingy love affair with its portable consoles.

Nintendo has kind of a weird clingy love affair with its portable consoles. Each system goes through several iterations before the company ultimately makes an entirely new system. Don’t believe me? Game Boy Advance, Game Boy Advance SP, Game Boy Micro. The DS, DS Lite, DSi, and DSi XL. Now get ready for the most ludicrous of all: 3DS, 3DS XL, New 3DS XL, 2DS, 2DS XL, and New 2DS XL. That’s right, six iterations of the same damn platform. And yes, New 2DS XL was recently announced to be a thing. Or will be, once July 28 rolls around.

The New 2DS XL’s screen will be the same size as the new 3DS XL, though the system itself is a bit smaller. Naturally it will play any 3DS or DS game, same as all the other models, but not in 3D. Don’t forget about the built-in Amiibo reader, too. Reggie Fils-Aime, NoA President, states that the system “demonstrates our commitment to the handheld market.” Uh, was there ever any doubt about it? Regardless, the latest remake is plenty affordable at a friendly $150 price tag, plus it comes in black and turquoise or white and orange models.

Give them flack for re-releasing the same console over and over, but the 2DS does make sense. Many people don’t like the 3D, so why pay for it when there’s a cheaper option? And the XL made needed improvements in comfort, while the “New” line added in more power and Amiibo support. On the flipside, this means gamers have to dole out a bunch of cash for every adjustment when smaller, more affordable fixes would have been more consumer friendly. The 3D effect is optional to begin with, some soft grips would help the size problem (though not with the screens) and Amiibo adapters exist for the older 3-and 2DS models anyway. And frankly, if you’re going to develop a game for a platform, you ought to make sure it runs smoothly on the platform its intended for, not force consumers to pony up for a whole new system just to play comfortably.

Take it or leave it, the New 2DS XL comes out in July. I’m happy with my regular 3DS XL, what do the rest of you think? Frivolous or functional? Let us know in the comments, and keep up with The Nerd Stash as we release all the latest entertainment news.

Every year since their birth in 2015, the World Video Games Hall of Fame, an extension of The Strong, the National Museum of Play, has been adding deserving titles to their collection of the best ever video games. These games’ chances of making it into the hall of fame depend on a number of factors (Icon-status, Longevity, Geographical reach, and Influence), although the most important quality they should possess is their effect on history. According to The Strong’s website, any inducted game should “have enjoyed popularity over a sustained period and have exerted influence on the video game industry or on popular culture and society in general.” The newest additions to the hall of fame are definitely worthy of their induction.

The four newest games to be added to the World Video Games Hall of Fame, Street Fighter II, Pokemon Red, Pokémon Green, Donkey Kong (the original arcade game)and Halo Combat Evolved, are all titles deserving of the praise, in my opinion. The other nominees to be considered, Final Fantasy VII, Microsoft Windows Solitare, Mortal Kombat, Myst, Portal, Tomb Raider, Resident Evil, and Wii Sports, are also praiseworthy games, but just didn’t make the cut this year.

video games hall of fame-street fighter II

Street Fighter II kick-started the fighter genre.

All of the mentioned titles are deserving of being inducted into the World Video Games Hall of Fame, but, as I mentioned before, they had to meet a set of standards to be accepted. For example, when comparing Street Fighter II and Mortal Kombat, two different fighting games, one can make argue in either direction. But it is known that Street Fighter II spawned a generation of fighting games. Capcom placed their game in arcades around the world, this having a domino effect on where fighting games stand within the gaming industry today. They had tournaments in arcades back in the day, now look how far the gaming industry has come in regards to eSports. It’s amazing! Unfortunately, as good and influential as a game Mortal Kombat was, it just didn’t have the same effect as Street Fighter II. The latest Street Fighter game–Street Fighter V–was only released last year, showing us how far a franchise can come in 26 years.

Donkey Kong, the original arcade game is a prime example of how a video game has had a tremendous effect on the future of gaming. Without Donkey Kong, where would the world’s favorite Italian plumber be today? For without this classic arcade game, there would be no Mario, as this is the game where Mario got his start. Eventually branching off into its own direction, the Mario Bros. franchise blew up to be some of the most influential video games to date. Super Mario Bros. was added to the World Video Games Hall of Fame back in 2015.

video games hall of fame-DK arcade-mario

Saving Peach has never been an easy task for Mario; Donkey Kong prepared him for that reality.

These are only examples of two of the games added to the hall of fame this year. Halo: Combat Evolved and Pokémon Red/Green are also titles that deserve this spotlight. Halo being one of the first successful shooters for a console; boasting a strong combination of story, characters, and multiplayer action with the open world experience we all love to see in more modern games. As for the Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green titles… I think it’s quite clear why these titles have been inducted. The games spawned a generation of Poké-maniacs that, in turn, have fanned the flames to the success the franchise has achieved over the years. With over 21.5 billion trading cards and a number of TV shows and other video games–one of the latest being Pokémon Go–there’s no stopping that train.  

In all, there’s a good reason these games were picked to be inducted into the World Video Games Hall of Fame this year, and why others have been selected in the past. Games like Pac-Man and The Legend of Zelda, much like Pokémon Red/Green, don’t need much explanation to the well-versed gamer as to how they ended up in the hall of fame. Other titles that were nominated had a reason for being considered too, but they just weren’t as influential as the winners. Video games that make their mark on history, much like an athlete makes a mark within their sport in history, are more than likely to be inducted into the World Video Games Hall of Fame. It’s just a matter of time before games like Diablo and Super Smash Bros. make their way into the pit of greatness with the others, as well.

The Nintendo Switch was released on March 3rd, 2017.  The console rapidly sold out at every major retailer, and Nintendo has been working constantly to replenish stock.  This has made buying a Nintendo Switch quite a chore for potential adopters of the console.  Across the country, Nintendo is struggling to keep up with demand.  However, it seems the Nintendo Store in New York City has no issue getting new consoles in stock.

The Nintendo Store in NYC is apparently immune to the stock woes that is plaguing stores across the country.  For some, this could mean taking a short vacation to NYC to get a console.  However, most people are going to have to continue waiting it out for their local store to replenish stock.  Switch consoles have been flying off the shelves at online stores within minutes of stock replenishing emails being sent to potential buyers.  Another option is going to eBay to buy the console at a premium, but you would have to be very impatient to pay over $400 for a console Nintendo is charging $299.99 for.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe released on April 28, 2017

With the recent release of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, demand for the Switch has grown even higher.  If demand for stock wasn’t high enough already for Nintendo, knowing new adopters can snag a copy of the latest title in The Legend of Zelda Series,  they definitely have a high hill to climb now.  There have been minimal updates on when Nintendo will be replenishing its stock nationwide.  New adopters of the Nintendo Switch who don’t reside in NYC will have to continue the waiting game for the foreseeable future.  Want my advice?  If you get notified of a restock, jump on it like Mario runs to mushrooms.  For future news on the Nintendo Switch, stay tuned to The Nerd Stash.

Fire Emblem Heroes’s metagame is as alive as it’s always been, and if there are any doubts about that, a selection of spellcasters is on its way to prove it once and for all. The mobile game’s next voting gauntlet, taking place from May 12 through May 18, features Merric, male Robin, Henry, and Leo for the guys, and Linde, Julia, Tharja, and Sanaki for the ladies. As always, participants will place all their bets on a single character to compete tournament-style against the others with a handful of hero feathers at stake. Unlike before, there are a few changes to the way ranks and rewards work this time around. To make things more fair, the weaker army will receive temporary score boosts when voting.

The 1.3.0 update to Fire Emblem Heroes adds a very welcome bonus to the gauntlet: Orbs. Precious, beautiful orbs. It also restructures the reward system itself, introducing tier levels from one to twenty. The good news is, even the lowest of the low competitors will win something now – a paltry 100 feathers. The greatest of the great will receive four orbs (just short of a full summoning session) and a new car! Just kidding, they get 3,000 feathers. The bad news: it’s still possible to be demoted to a lower tier, but now it’s based on your player rank rather than your score. Demotions come into play starting on the 8th tier.

Ranks in Fire Emblem Heroes are determined by your number of wins and losses. Those percentages show how many ranks a player will rise or drop. I.E., a tier 8 will jump up to 11 if they’re in the top 20% of players, but drop down to 7 if they’re below the top 80%.

The last changes to Fire Emblem Heroes come in the form of a double defense score from using bonus heroes in the Arena, as well as adding new arena maps with defensive terrain to compete in. Defensive terrain grants 30% defense or resistance to any unit occupying that space. Enemy levels in the eighth and ninth training tower strata have been adjusted as well.

Can’t get enough of Fire Emblem? Have a look at these speedruns of the latest in the series, Fire Emblem Fates.

Mario Hanafuda Cards Now at Nintendo’s NY Store http://thenerdstash.com/mario-hanafuda-cards-nintendos-ny-store/ http://thenerdstash.com/mario-hanafuda-cards-nintendos-ny-store/#respond Fri, 05 May 2017 17:05:41 +0000 http://thenerdstash.com/?p=62531 In an age long gone, there was this thing people weren’t really satisfied with called Club Nintendo.

In an age long gone, there was this thing people weren’t really satisfied with called Club Nintendo. It had a few interesting rewards for Nintendo’s loyal fanbase, but more often than not gamers would merely sit on their coins with nothing worth spending them on. But one of those rewards was notorious for being perpetually out of stock, and those were the Nintendo themed Hanafuda playing cards. Those cards have resurfaced, albeit in a slightly different form, and they’re available for around $20 in the Nintendo store in New York in Rockefeller Center.

It’s no secret that before Nintendo became the video game company we know today, they started off producing Hanafuda cards. Hanafuda refers to the name of the cards rather than the game they are played with, since the cards are used in a variety of different games (Karuta being an example). In many games, completing a four-part image is a key goal rather than accumulating points, though points can be assigned. Hanafuda cards came about after the Japanese government banned gambling with foreign playing cards, leaving the gamblers to print their own. Eventually realizing there was no stopping people from playing card games, the government eventually lessened its grip on the hobby.

Hanafuda cards are divided into twelve suits representing the month, each with four cards depicting a scene.

Although the cards are drastically hard to come by in the west, Nintendo of Japan still produces and distributes Hanafuda cards. This is mostly just in recognition of their company origins though, and while it’s unfortunate that we have such a hard time getting the cards, it’s understandable considering the western world never met Nintendo until they started producing video games. These Mario hanafuda cards currently aren’t being sold anywhere else regularly, but maybe, if the store in Rockefeller Center meets high demand, the big N might consider giving us more.

Check back with The Nerd Stash often. Unlike those mean old stores, we update our content every day!

With the recent release of the Nintendo Switch, NES Classic Edition and recently announced SNES Classic Edition it feels like Nintendo is releasing a new console every few months. Chalk one more up as Nintendo has now revealed that the 2DS XL is on its way.  Technically not a new console, the 2DS XL will have all of the improved functionality that was included in the 3DS XL with one major omission.  Like the original 2DS, the XL version will not support the stereoscopic 3D option first included in the 3DS. In other words, like its name suggests, all gaming content on the handheld will cover only two of the dimensions.

The 2DS XL will include the secondary C-pad, integrated NFC-support for amiibo cards and figures and more processing horsepower under the hood as including in the 3D XL’s functionality.  The 2DS XL has an expected release date of July 28th.  That date just so happens to coincide with the release of several titles for Nintendo’s handheld platforms.  The 28th of July will also see the release of Nintendo titles Hey! Pikmin, Miitopia for the 3D XL and 2D XL and Dr. Kawashima’s Devilish Brain Training: Can you stay focused? for the Switch.

The new 2DS XL will come in a black/turquoise or white/orange dependent on the geographic location of sale. It also comes in the same clamshell design as the 3DS and 3DS XL unlike the 2DS.  The fact that the 2DS did not fold was a point of contention with many Nintendo fans. The suggested retails price for the 2DS XL is $149.

“This new addition to Nintendo’s portable hardware line demonstrates our commitment to the hand-held market,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America’s President and COO. “New Nintendo 2DS XL sports a beautiful clamshell design and offers a great balance between price and performance.”

When a pair of swordsmen named Roy and Marth made a debut appearance in Smash Bros. Melee, fans were intrigued by these new characters from a series of games they’d never gotten the chance to play. It was a nice little ploy on Nintendo’s part, and it worked far better than they likely anticipated. Thus, Fire Emblem exploded in the U.S. and Fates is the latest iteration in the exalted (Exalt, heh) franchise. To honor the series, we’re giving you speedruns of all three storylines in Fire Emblem: Fates. Oh, and did we mention: this is the Classic mode, meaning your allies can be killed… for good.

In Birthright, avatar character Corrin finds him/herself caught between the Hoshido and Nohr kingdoms, and sides with the former, their supposed blood family. For a turn-based strategy game, this route takes a surprisingly quick 40 minutes to march through by record holder Yukiya.

Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest sees Corrin allied with their adoptive family, Nohr, very much to the shock of the Hoshidan royals. Yukiya again graces us with the gold cup for this one, with a ten-minute difference compared to Birthright.

The Revelations run is brought to us by Anteri at 55 minutes long. Unlike the previous two versions, Corrin here refuses to choose one family over the other. And, as the title suggests, some game-changing revelations are made as a result.

Fire Emblem: Fates isn’t the most popular game in the series, in part due to how the plot is written, but it’s got everything veteran fans expect from the franchise as far as gameplay is concerned. Nintendo marketed it heavily, even pulling a Melee when they released Corrin as a DLC character in Smash 4 before the games hit the shelves.

When it comes to the gaming world, 2017 is definitely shaping up to be the year of the Nintendo. According to a report released by Eurogamer earlier this week, Nintendo will be releasing a new system: the SNES Classic mini.

Earlier this week, Nintendo announced that they would no longer be making or producing their NES micro system that they released last year. The NES Mini was a smaller version of one of their first consoles that allowed players to “plug in and play”. The system came with 30 of Nintendo’s greatest NES generation titles for gamers, new and old, to enjoy. However, upon release, the NES Classic mini was more popular than Nintendo expected it to be. Retailers quickly sold out everywhere and Nintendo couldn’t keep up with demands for the product. Mostly due to the fact that Nintendo never intended for the NES classic mini to be a permanent product in their lineup.

Try not to be too disheartened by the discontinuation of the NES because Nintendo has more in store. The rumor is that they have ceased production on the NES to begin working on the SNES Classic mini system. While there is still a lot of information we don’t know about the potential SNES mini it will follow the “plug in and play” set up as the former console with pre-installed games. The launch is speculatively set for Holiday of 2017, so hopefully, we will receive more solid information on the system.

The SNES offers some really fantastic titles and we can only hope that Nintendo will make plenty to sell. One can only wonder if Nintendo will continue the trend with the Nintendo 64 or maybe even the Gamecube in the years to come. What games are you hoping Nintendo will include on their SNES Classic Mini? Let us know in the comments below!
