Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World Demo Shows Off Solid Port

The 3DS has steadily been receiving its share of games that were originally featured on the Wii U. Games like Hyrule Warriors, Rhythm Heaven, Xenoblade Chronicles and Super Mario Maker are showing the system is capable of handling the same experiences as its bigger brother. The next game to get that treatment will be released on February 3rd in the form of Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World.

Nintendo released a demo of the game yesterday that gives you access to two of the game’s early levels. While they’re not pixel perfect remakes of the previous game they do show off that the port is very faithful to the original while making changes and adjustments where needed.

Details Emerge For Fire Emblem Mobile Game

I cannot begin to tell you how excited I was when I first heard that Nintendo was going to be making a Fire Emblem game on mobile devices. It seemed, to me, of all of Nintendo’s properties one of the ones best suited for the touch style interface of modern smart devices. The game is controlled by menus and grids. No need for twitch controls … Continue reading Details Emerge For Fire Emblem Mobile Game

Yakuza 0 Review (PS4)

Yakuza. It’s a series I’d never gotten into, but is well loved with other staffers here at Nintendo Okie. You can’t go a few weeks without someone talking about it and for good reason. Yakuza 0 is the most recent game in the series and if you’ve never explored the streets of Japan as a heavily tattooed man who commits crime, but is ultimately a good person then now is the best time to do so.

Yakuza 0 tells the story of two different members of the Japanese yakuza, Kiryu Kazuma and Majima Goro. At the beginning of this game Kiryu is framed for a murder that he didn’t commit. Ultimately he’s kicked out of the family and tries to redeem himself and prove his innocence at the same time. Majima is a cabaret owner who was exiled for not following orders years earlier. He too is looking to better his name. These two men’s stories will intertwine with each other at different points.

Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone Review (PS4)

There have been a number of different games to come to the states featuring digital diva Hatsune Miku. We had one less than six months ago so it was kind of surprising that we’d get another one so soon. This most recent release, Hatsune Miku Project Diva Future Tone is even more surprising in that it’s a home release of a Japanese arcade game.

Project Diva Future Tone is a multi-part package. You can download the base package for free from Playstation Network. That gives you two songs to play. If you want more you’ll have to buy one of the packs, Future Sound or Colorful Tone. Each of these packages are available for $30 a piece or as a bundle you save a little bit of money and can get them for $54. Regardless of which package you choose you’re getting a great deal. There are over 220 songs in the full package, easily the most content rich game in the series, in terms of songs. The Future Sound package contains songs that come mostly from the releases of Project Diva F while Colorful Tone takes its song selections from the Project Mirai games on the 3DS.

The first week of the year offers up some slim pickings on the eShop. Pokemon Snap for the N64 is available on the Wii U Virtual Console and that’s really the biggest release of the week. Only a handful of indie games to check out. My Nintendo has some deals on a few Kirby games so if you’re interested in picking up something like Kirby’s Epic Yarn for Wii U or Yoshi’s Woolly World a little cheaper you might spend some of those platinum and gold coins to do that.

As always head past the break for the full list of games and deals available.

MLB The Show 16 Is a Great Baseball Game

Baseball is the one sport I truly care about. I “follow” my favorite football team, the Carolina Panthers and will watch them if they’re on TV. Since that doesn’t happen often in Oklahoma I just check the scores the next day. I pay attention to the Oklahoma City Thunder in the NBA. I don’t watch hockey. Baseball, however, I truly love. I grew up playing … Continue reading MLB The Show 16 Is a Great Baseball Game
