Miiverse Update Dated; Draws Criticism

MiiverseLogoEarlier this month we learned that big changes were coming to the Miiverse. Now we have a release date for those changes. We’ll be seeing the Miiverse changes July 29th.

Unfortunately, like many things Nintendo announces, the community has been pretty split on what they think of the Miiverse changes. Some are excited for the new features and some don’t care either way, however, the majority of the comments on it are negative. In the same Miiverse post as the release date announcement, Tom posted some clarification of what they’re doing and why. Most of the comments don’t appear to be too receptive though with the limited posting being a repeated complaint.

How do you feel about the upcoming Miiverse changes?

Xeodrifter Wii U Releasing July 30th

Xeodrifter LogoJools Watsham gave Xeodrifter on Wii U a release date during his recent talk with Nintendo World Report. We can expect Xeodrifter to be blasting onto Wii U July 30th. Like stated before, the game will indeed have cross-buy. If you bought the game on 3DS, you’ll get the Wii U version no additional cost.

He also claims that the cross-buy download will count as a new purchase. I’m not sure what exactly that means now that Club Nintendo and the Digital Deluxe Program has ended but I’m going to guess that’s a good thing.

Star Fox Zero First Footage Shown

StarFox

Nintendo started their Digital Event strong today with Star Fox blasting right out the gate. That’s right, we finally got to see the first footage for the new Star Fox after being teased for over a year. Named Star Fox Zero, the game will include the transformations from the cancelled Star Fox 2, the classic dog-fighting, and a gamepad cockpit view that also can be used for aiming your weapon.

We learned as the day went on that Star Fox Zero is not a remake or a sequel. It’s being co-developed by Platinum Games. There’s also a 2-player co-op mode. Unfortunately, Miyamoto stated there’s no online multiplayer.

So, we’re really prioritising getting this new game playing at 60 frames-per-second. In previous Star Fox games we had focused a lot on dogfighting, but here we’re really focused more the single-player experience. Of course, as we continue on and once people get a feeling for the game… as the process continues if we find that we do think it’d be really good we’ll definitely consider it, but right now we’re not.

Star Fox Zero is scheduled to launch this Holiday season.
