Next Nintendo Direct This Saturday

At least for Japan, no news on when the North American or Europe Nintendo Direct announcements are coming.  Last time they weren't too far apart and essentially all the same info, we'll have to see if some of the rumors pop up true or laid to rest.

What Needs to Change with The Legend of Zelda?

I'm sure there are a ton of people with ideas on how to change or make the The Legend of Zelda series better. 1UP posted an article on what they feel needs to happen to keep the series going.

Project Cars Footage

I've only seen a few screenshots of this game, and as of right now we only know that Project Cars is coming to the Wii U.  This was posted over at wii u blog, be sure to head over there and check out all the Wii U news too!

A Bunch of Pandora's Tower Screenshots

Pandora's Tower looks like a great game and I have to admit, I am a little bummed that it isn't coming out here in North America.  Xenoblade Chronicles has been a blast to play so far, and I can't wait for The Last Story.  Hit "Read More" to check out all the Pandora's Tower screenshots.

Darksiders 2 delayed until August

So it looks like the June 26th date has changed.  It has been said before that they weren't going to release the game until it was done.

Thundercats Interview

Just a short clip talking about the Thundercats game for DS.  Man I loved Thundercats "back in the day" I have no idea what the new show is like.

Gamestop Offering a Bonus with your order of Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir

If you are looking to pick up Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir, Gamestop is offering some free headphones with the game for a limited time.  Kind of a nice bonus, if you don't happen to already a pair of headphones lying around.

Darksiders 2 Interview - Talk about Wii U Version

I saw this over at GoNintendo today, if you want to get to the portion where they are actually talking about the Wii U, jump to 5:48 over the video.

The Shins - "The Rifle's Spiral" Behind the Scenes Video

I actually really enjoyed this music video, which is kind of funny.  Most of the music videos I see on Nintendo Video I don't really care for, but this one was cool.

IGN - Imagining F-Zero on Nintendo's Wii U

Curious as to what F-Zero could be like on the Wii U?  I sure am, in fact, just the other day I was having the urge to play F-Zero so I headed on over to my local Gamestop to see if they had a copy in their Gamecube section.

Mario Game to be Announced at E3?

So it seems pretty plausible, though this is information that has been both translated and passed on.  Seeing as, at least to my knowledge, Shigeru Miyamoto doesn't speak Spanish.  It means that it went from Japanese to Spanish to English and then from one site to the next.  I don't see why Nintendo wouldn't announce a new Mario game as they've recently bought up  Here's a small quote from the article.  Hit the link for the full thing.

"In a recent interview, Mr. Miyamoto confirmed that a new Super Mario Bros. game for the Wii U system will be shown at this year's E3 Expo," a Nintendo spokesperson said. "We'll have more to announce about our plans for the E3 Expo at a later date."

Xenoblade Chronicles Doing Pretty Well
