Special Bundle Includes an Adorable Chibi-Robo amiibo Figure

The famous electrifying Chibi-Robo! finally returns with a whole new game that you can plug-in called 'Zip Lash' which launches exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on October 9th

For true loyal Nintendo fans they will remember that Chibi-Robo is really just a famous as Yoshi, but just not known to well in the Western World, but all that is changing as his latest electrifying adventure is plugging into the 3DS on October 9th, and you will get a real zap out of playing it, and best of it comes with its own special amiibo that will really get you into the mood in playing Chibi-Robo!

When Earth's resources are in danger from a mischievous group of aliens, there's only one robot with the skill to save the world! That robot's name is Chibi-Robo, and he's the star of the energetic new game Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash, launching exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on Oct. 9. Chibi-Robo might be small in size, but his adventuring skills are as big as the most intrepid explorer's!

Using his plug and cord, Chibi-Robo can whip, grapple and swing his way through a huge side-scrolling platformer filled with dangerous enemies and clever environmental puzzles. And by scanning the Chibi-Robo amiibo figure that is included with a special bundle, players can access bonus features like the ability to power up to Super Chibi-Robo, increasing Chibi-Robo's speed and watts and allowing him to travel for longer distances without having to charge up.

"With colorful graphics, accessible game play and a lovable main character, Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash is perfect for every member of the family," said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America's Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. "It is a terrific addition to the robust series of fun Nintendo games launching between now and the end of year."
Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash takes the much-loved Chibi-Robo series in a new direction. While previous games focused on completing chores in a third-person 3D environment, this new Nintendo 3DS game is a classic side-scrolling adventure with a strong focus on discovery and exploration.

In the game, Chibi-Robo travels through a variety of action-packed environments. Using his signature plug and cord, he can whip enemies, swing over chasms, ricochet shots and grapple to scale walls. By collecting boost balls, his cord can be extended, allowing Chibi-Robo to access previously out-of-reach areas and search for a variety of different collectibles, including many surprising real-world snacks. The game is overflowing with tons of collectibles to find, bosses to battle and hidden areas to discover.

In addition to activating Super Chibi-Robo, players can use a Toy Capsule Machine by scanning the Chibi-Robo amiibo to the New Nintendo 3DS system or Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL or Nintendo 2DS systems using the Nintendo 3DS NFC Reader/Writer accessory (sold separately).

This fun machine, located in the Chibi-House, can only be accessed using the amiibo figure and unlocks delightful items like collectible figures and bonus stages. Players can even level up the Chibi-Robo amiibo itself by recording in-game score data. The higher the level of the amiibo, the more times the player can become Super Chibi-Robo each day during game play and the better chance the player will receive rare items from the Toy Capsule Machine.

Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash will launch in stores, in the Nintendo eShop and at on Oct. 9 at a suggested retail price of $29.99. Players who want to also purchase the Chibi-Robo amiibo can find him in a special bundle that includes the game and amiibo figure at a suggested retail price of $39.99.

For more information about Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash, visit
The game really looks like a fun platform adventure, and hopefully it sells great, because big 'N' already stated that if this new version of Chibi-Robo does not sell well, they are forever cutting his cord and he will never be able to get power to recharge himself ever again.

Nintendo dropped from list of top 100 brands for first time

Oct 05, 2015 - 11:08 AM - by garyopa
NX not here yet, and no 'smartphone' games either as the main reasons for Interbrand to drop big 'N'

Interbrand said Nintendo was snubbed apparently because the game-maker is not keeping up with changes in people’s lives, pointing to its failure to jump on the smartphone bandwagon in a timely manner.

For the first time since Interbrand starting tracking companies as 'worthwhile household brand', big 'N' been dropped from the top 100 list, as they claim that Nintendo has not been keeping up with the times, and should have entered the 'smartphone' gaming world long time ago, as such, goodbye Nintendo. -- The good news for games is Sony still hanging on, they slipped a bit, but are at slot 58th.

Apple and Google were ranked first and second, respectively, on the U.S.-based consultancy's Best Global Brands 2015 list, topping it for the third consecutive year. Apple was assessed at $170 billion and Google $120 billion.

While six other Japanese brands - Toyota, Honda, Canon, Nissan, Sony and Panasonic - made the list, it was the first time Nintendo has been dropped since the annual ranking began in 2001, Interbrand said.

Interbrand Japan CEO Yuki Wada said Nintendo was snubbed apparently because the Kyoto-based game-maker is not keeping up with changes in people's lives, pointing to its failure to jump on the smartphone game bandwagon in a timely manner.

Nintendo had been reluctant to release smartphone games and only announced its entry into the market in March.

Wada added that companies that sharply increase their values, including Facebook and Amazon, are quick to adopt to changing trends.

Interbrand looked into the companies' financial performances and how their brands contributed to profit and are expected to do so. It then estimated their brand values and ranked them.

Of all the Japanese companies, Toyota, ranked sixth, was estimated to have a brand worth of $490 billion. Honda, meanwhile, rose to 19th from 20th, while Nissan jumped to 49th from 56th.

Canon, Sony and Panasonic each slid a few notches, ranking 40th, 58th and 65th, respectively.
So what do you think, do you agree with Interbrand, that Nintendo is no longer worthwhile to be in top 100 household brand names?

‘Nintendo Quest’ Trailer

Oct 02, 2015 - 10:49 AM - by garyopa
Can One Man Buy All 678 Original Nintendo Games in 30 Days?

Nostalgia is king right now, so it shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone to hear that one man set out with a goal to purchase all 678 games from the original Nintendo Entertainment System games from 1985.

Before the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, there was a Nintendo system called the NES released in '85 that is 30 years ago, that was very popular among your parents when they were growing up, and there was 678 games released for it, but 30 years later, is it possible to find all the original games and buy them, and not using any online purchases either, and do it all in 30 days, well to find out you need to watch 'Nintendo Quest' the movie which was released today on Vimeo and its worth the rental price it just to see what happened during guy's dream to get all the original NES titles within a month as it took him on long trip covering over 10,000 miles.

We all have dreams, and Jay Bartlett‘s was to track down every single one of those video game cartridges (or Game Paks if you want to be more accurate). But he decided to make it a little more challenging. Essentially creating his own real-life video game, Bartlett set out to collect all these video games in just 30 days, and to make it even more difficult, he decided not to buy any of those games online.

Now see a bit of his journey the Nintendo Quest trailer, teasing a documentary chronicling his adventure and also the history and legacy of Nintendo.

The Kickstarted project doesn't seem to be quite as well put together as something like The King of Kong, but it does look like there's an interesting story to be told, if only because of all the video game stores Bartlett has to visit to complete his quest. But that voiceover has to go, and there's one particular talking head that just feels very artificial and cheesy.
Still, as someone who grew up on the NES but isn't too familiar with the rarity of certain games and some of the early history of the gaming system, I'm betting there are some fascinating details to be found in this documentary.

Some people might think this guy is wasting his time and money, but like the documentary says, no matter what happens this trip is going to be fun. Maybe he's not spending his money on these games, but rather spending it to create memories. There might be cheaper or more efficient ways of doing that, but who am I to tell someone how to live their life? I still buy action figures to display proudly and keep me single forever.

One man. 30 days, 678 games. No online purchases. It's the premise that launched a film over 10,000 miles in the making and showcases the adventure of video game rock star, Jay Bartlett, a fanatic collector in pursuit of his dream to own a complete official North American NES library. Along the way, filmmaker Rob McCallum examines the enduring legacy of the NES and Nintendo.
Nintendo Quest will be available on Vimeo beginning October 2nd.
So what do you think, after watching the trailer below, will you be renting the movie from Vimeo at some point and enjoying all the retro gaming quest action, that is almost so wild at times, maybe Nintendo should make this into an actual new game for their loyal fans.

Super Mario Maker Has Sold 1 Million Units

Sep 30, 2015 - 1:03 PM - by garyopa
Fan-Created Levels Have Been Played a Whopping 75 Million Times by Fellow Mario Fans around the Worl

Today it was revealed that more than 1 million units of Super Mario Maker have been sold around the world so far.

Nintendo's version of 'little big planet' using its famous Mario mascot has worked out, they now have a super megahit on their hands!

For the last 30 years, Super Mario fans have proved to be some of the most passionate, loyal and dedicated video game fans on the planet. Traditionally that fervor has been most clearly measured by unit sales, and with more than 310 million units sold and counting in the Super Mario franchise, that fervor is historic. And now, with the recent release of the Super Mario Maker game for the Wii U console, Nintendo has a new way to measure fan engagement: level creation.

Today it was revealed that more than 1 million units of Super Mario Maker have been sold around the world since its launch on Sept. 11. The addition of 1 million new "fan" developers has led to the creation of more than 2.2 million Super Mario courses, which combined have been played nearly 75 million times.

"For Mario fans around the world, including myself, Super Mario Maker was a dream 30 years in the making," said Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime. "The game has captured and unlocked the imaginations of gaming fans of all ages and brought their dedication to Nintendo to a whole new level."
Using the touch screen of the Wii U GamePad controller, Super Mario Maker players can create levels in four different Super Mario game styles. The game offers dozens of enemies, items and power-ups, and lets people design everything from the terrain to where to place Warp Pipes. Completed levels can then be uploaded and enjoyed by other players around the world. Some seem simple, some offer fun challenges and some prove maddeningly difficult - it all depends on the designer. But everyone can find courses to enjoy and may find some courses to provide insightful inspiration for their own new creations.

So have you tried out Super Mario Maker yet, are you one of the happy million customers, and if so what fan made levels have you enjoyed the most, any top favorites yet that are worth playing over and over with your friends.

Celebrate the Japanese New Year with Super Mario Food

Sep 29, 2015 - 8:45 PM - by garyopa
Takashimaya will sell Super Mario Bros. branded 'osechi-ryori', to celebrate the series' 30th anniv.

eside diversifying into smartphone games, Nintendo is also planning to boost its profits by expanding the range of products it's willing to license its popular IP to.

If you live in Japan, or are traveling there for a nice visit during their New Year holiday, you will now be able to sit down and enjoy being a Pac-Man as you chop up some nice Super Mario food at wonderful cost of only $226, which is very cheap for great New Year's dinner compared to previous years and it even comes with collectable cards afterwards and all officially licensed by Nintendo Corp. themselves.

Here in Japan, we're starting to see the fruits of that initiative - the company just released Animal Crossing and Splatoon stickers on popular chat app Line, for example, and Kokuyo's famous Campus line of notebooks is getting Super Mario special editions next month.

But this might be the most extravagant crossover to date: high-end department store Takashimaya will sell Super Mario Bros.-branded osechi-ryori, or traditional New Year food, to celebrate the series' 30th anniversary. Osechi refers to a variety of food that most Japanese families eat together at the beginning of the year; it's sort of like an extravagant, colorful bento box where each item has its own symbolic cultural meaning. Some of the food in the Mario set features design inspired by the series, and it comes with a set of 16 collectors' cards.

Osechi is a thing you have to order in advance - customers in Japan can make their orders for Takashimaya's Super Mario Bros. set from tomorrow until Christmas Day, and it'll set them back ¥27,000, or about $226. That's actually not super expensive for special-edition osechi from Takashimaya, which sold up to three gold-encased sets a few years ago for ¥18 million - $229,000 at the time. And this year, the store has a ¥496,800 ($4,149) set that comes in luxurious Wajima-nuri lacquerware.
So you going to eat Super Mario this year in Japan, or decide to skip the special food dish?

Solve Puzzles and Survive Dungeons Alongside Friends

Sep 28, 2015 - 2:30 PM - by garyopa
in The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes

Form a legendary trio with your friends and tackle dungeons and boss battles together in The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, coming to the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on Oct. 23rd

In just under a month, you will be gathering up a trio of your best friends, to join you on quest and battle in the new Zelda for 3DS.

Form a legendary trio with your friends and tackle dungeons and boss battles together in The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, coming to the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on Oct. 23.

Presented in the same top-down style as the critically acclaimed The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds game, prepare to solve inventive puzzles as a team and dress Link in a range of outfits to enable new abilities that enhance your adventure. In the Kingdom of Hytopia, a fashion-obsessed realm where sartorial elegance is celebrated, an evil witch has placed a mysterious curse upon Princess Styla, casting the realm into disarray. With citizens calling for the return of a legendary trio of "Totem Heroes" to protect them, and King Tuft offering a unique reward for whosoever lifts the curse, venture into the Drablands to hunt down the witch and restore peace and stylishness to the land.

Each of the game's 36 outfits comes with its own special abilities that help the three Link characters solve puzzles and navigate difficult terrain. For example, "Goron Garb" allows Link to swim in lava, while the "Zora Costume" helps him swim through water with greater speed.

You also have a variety of ways to explore the game across its 32 stages. You can play in solo mode along with two paper doll-like figures called "Doppels." Or you can use an Internet connection to go online in multiplayer mode and partner with two other heroic players who also own the game. You can choose to team up with a combination of players who are and are not part of your Nintendo 3DS friend list.

Finally, Download Play allows you to connect locally with two other friends who own a system in the Nintendo 3DS family, even if only one person has the game. Only by working as a team will you be able to progress through the various hazards lying in wait, but for those who master an area, bonus challenges can be unlocked for access to more valuable rewards.

To share your great acts of teamwork and skill from throughout the game with others, players can visit the Photo Bro shop managing the in-game Miiverse Gallery. As well as posting these snaps to Miiverse, you can even unlock Miiverse stamps, which you can apply to your hand-drawn creations.

The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes launches on Oct. 23 exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. For more information, visit
So what do you think, well the Zelda on 3DS keep you happy until the big open-world Zelda appears on the Wii U or maybe NX?

New Designer for Raccoon-Owned Real Estate Enterprise Needed Immediately

Sep 26, 2015 - 1:18 PM - by garyopa
Only Candidates Who Want to Make Hundreds of Animal Villagers Happy Need Apply

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer now available for Nintendo 3DS and Nook’s Homes is looking for you, to help build things, as it needs to be designed totally to make everyone happy in their homes.

Well the time is finally here, Animal Crossing, Happy Home Designer has landed in retail store near you, and best of all besides the 'game to purchase' on your 3DS, there is also hundreds of Amiibo Trading Cards for Happy Homer Designer to purchase also!

Nook's Homes is looking for you!

The renowned real estate business is seeking a new designer to help decorate the interior and exterior of villagers' homes and public facilities in town. Candidates must own a Nintendo 3DS system and the new Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer game and be willing to interact with animals with big personalities who like to wear stylish clothes.

The highly coveted position requires a love of designing (obviously!), strong animal skills (no brainer!), a knack for decorating (of course!) and a passion for amiibo cards (they're cool!). Interested parties can contact Tom Nook through snail mail, carrier pigeon, megaphone pointed in the direction of Nook's Homes ... or by picking up Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, now available for Nintendo 3DS.

  • Great working environment: Working for Nook's Homes places you in the esteemed company of other star employees, including Tom Nook, CEO and wearer of fabulous sweaters, Lyle, Tom Nook's right-hand animal and real-estate veteran, Digby, brother of Isabelle and all around great pup, and Lottie, the newest member of the Animal Crossing family. Optimistic and outspoken, Lottie will walk you through the ins-and-outs of design. She's a pro, so listen up if she offers you some friendly advice. (She even excels at posting on Twitter! Lottie truly is a renaissance otter.)
  • Fun day-to-day duties: When you step into the role of designer, there's no need to worry about daily office tasks like scheduling meetings or checking up on those all-important memos that OMG-have-to-get-out-before-the-deadline. Your tasks in Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer are all about having fun and using your imagination. In fact, the motto at Nook's Homes is "Have Fun!" Well, it's not the actual motto, but it very well should be! What other job asks you to design the homes and town facilities for hundreds of beloved Animal Crossing villagers? That's right: None of them! And designing is made simple and streamlined using the touch screen of the Nintendo 3DS system.
  • Creativity encouraged: After taking on new design requests, your catalog of usable items and decorations will grow. And this will totally help with expanding your creative options. When animals come to you with their vision, they may think they know what they want, but by using the tools provided, you can design homes that are more creative and imaginative than the villagers ever dreamed! If someone requests a new home that is "cool," you can flex your creative muscles and give him or her a house full of snowman furniture, snowflake wallpaper and a relaxing "cold" tub. Why not? You're the expert.
  • One-of-a-kind benefits: Let's talk perks! Boy, there are some unique perks at Nook's Homes. First and foremost: amiibo cards. What are those, you ask? They are the next evolution of amiibo and work with Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer. Packs contain six random amiibo cards and can be purchased at a suggested retail price of $5.99 each. There will be hundreds of cards in the wild (perfect for trading with friends!), and each card represents a different Animal Crossing character. After tapping them in the game using the New Nintendo 3DS system or the Nintendo 3DS NFC Reader/Writer accessory for players who own Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL or Nintendo 2DS systems, the character joins your game and gives you a unique design request or can be assigned to work at one of the facilities around town! There are even some high-profile clients like DJ K.K. and Isabelle that will only visit if you use their respective amiibo cards.
  • Giving back to the village: Designing homes is not the only focus of Nook's Homes. If you impress them with your design savvy, they'll even ask you to help redesign the school, hospital or Department Store to help build up the town.
