Infendo’s Live Chat Reaction to Nintendo’s E3 2018 Direct

Rather than try to coordinate a live recording or reaction video, we decided to open a Discord chat and discuss our reactions that way. Here is a streamlined transcript of what we said. Time stamps are included for reference, just in case you want to watch and read along with us. (Unfortunately, time stamps only appear when a new person talks, or after a significant lapse in the chat, so consider ...

Nintendo Direct Incoming, 3DS to be headliner

Never one to give much notice, Nintendo droped a line in the Infendo mailbox yesterday detailing what is sure to be an awesome 3DS themed Nintendo Direct scheduled for Thursday, September 1. On the docket for the direct is sure to be Pokemon Sun and Moon seeing as how the games  release in less than a month. But what else? Maybe we will see some new surprises. Metroid Dread maybe(I’m holding onto ...

Pikmin Short Movies: 3D vs HD

Nintendo has a habit of making demos or even full games available after Nintendo Direct streams. Wednesday’s broadcast was no exception. Right after the Direct came to a conclusion, players could go to the 3DS or Wii U eShop to purchase a unique set of short movies staring Pikmin for $4.99 each. Famed game designer Shigeru Miyamoto explained his desire to make his tiny creations come to life...

Video: Stylish new trailer for Splatoon reveals single player mode

During the Nov. 5 Nintendo Direct, we were treated to a look at Splatoon’s single player campaign. Even though the game focuses on frantic, 4-on-4 online battles, it will, as promised, also contain a single player mode. In it, the battle between squids and octopi rages. The player fights on the side of the squid, of course, and if the above trailer is any indication, there will be plenty of ...

Xenoblade Chronicles X will have “bigger world to explore” than in Xenoblade Chronicles

Ever since its announcement, Xenoblade Chronicles X (which was known only as “X” until E3 2014) has been my most looked forward to Wii U game, by far. That’s saying a lot, as Super Smash Bros. for Wii U was always high on the list too. Don’t take this as anything but my personal opinion! Xenoblade Chronicles on Wii was just so massive, with such a solid storyline and great ...

Video: Mario and Luigi felyne outfits in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is set to offer more Nintendo crossover goodness than players will know what to do with. The news-packed Nintendo Direct that streamed earlier today contained yet another trailer highlighting such a crossover: this time, it’s Mario and Luigi outfits for your *ahem* energetic little felyne companions. I’m admittedly not as much a fan of these as I am of the Isa...

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse will have a multiplayer mode

We were treated to an in-depth look at Kirby’s upcoming Wii U game today during a Nintendo Direct video. For one thing, the name of the game has been finalized: Kirby and the Rainbow Curse (though I didn’t even realize this wasn’t final). As a spiritual successor to the Nintendo DS game Kirby Canvas Curse, the player will guide Kirby, who is restricted to ball form for the most p...

Lots of additions coming to Ultimate NES Remix for the 3DS

Ultimate NES Remix will bring the popular retro Nintendo experience to a portable for the first time on November 7th in Europe and December 5th in North America. During today’s Nintendo Direct stream, we learned a thing or two about the 3DS title: According to Bill Trinen, the game “contains the best parts of the first two [NES Remix] games.” I’m a little worried about this...

Details on amiibo compatibility emerge

Nintendo’s first wave of amiibo figurines will launch alongside Super Smash Bros. for Wii U on November 21st. Their built-in near-field communication (NFC) technology will allow players to scan them into compatible games easily by swiping them over the bottom left surface of the Wii U GamePad. In addition to their function in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, we now know how the figures will work...

Code Name S.T.E.A.M.: New trailer + gameplay revealed

Bill Trinen of the Nintendo Treehouse took us through a detailed tour of the tactical gameplay and characters in upcoming 3DS title Code Name S.T.E.A.M. Trinen warned players that the game will take tactical skill and wisdom to master. Steam is your most valuable resource in the game, but it’s limited. Using myriad characters, the player has the chance to form battle strategies for each stag...
