Well it seems that the theme continues in Twilight Princess HD. In one of the stores in Castle Town there are pictures from the Zelda U E3 reveal.

Pokemon day is coming up, Here’s what’s going on

imageFebruary 7th has been deemed “Pokemon day” and many special things are happening. Its a lot of stuff so i’ll just let it come straight out of the horses mouth. Here’s what Nintendo and the Pokemon company said was happening:

On February 27, 1996, video game fans were asked to choose between Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Charmander for the first time. This would be the beginning of a global phenomenon that has continued for two decades, through different regions, on multiple platforms, and the first of countless memorable moments. Exactly twenty years later, on Pokémon Day, Saturday, February 27, the adventure continues as Pokémon celebrates its 20th year with special events and activities. The fun begins with the Pokémon Photo Booth app that is now available for download at no charge from the App Store (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pokemon-photo-booth/id1084024173). Fans can show their Pokémon 20th spirit by customizing their portraits and adding captions in the style of classic Pokémon games. The photos can then be shared via social media sites or used to create Pokémon-themed profile photos. The app is also coming soon to Google Play.

A celebration of 20 years of Pokémon would not be complete without some big news! On Friday, February 26, at 7:00 a.m. (PST), a special Pokémon Direct presentation can be viewed at http://www.nintendo.com/nintendo-direct.

Twitch will be hosting a massive Pokémon event starting at 10:00 a.m. (PST) on Saturday. Fans can tune in to watch Pokémon discussion, gameplay, and other activities. At 6:00 p.m. (PST), Twitch will kick off an animation marathon for 24 hours that will include movies, favorite episodes, and animation specials around the clock until 6:00 p.m. (PST) on Sunday.

All Pokémon fans are invited to attend a special Pokémon 20th celebration at the newly renovated Nintendo NY store located at 10 Rockefeller Plaza in New York City. On Saturday, February 27, from noon to 3:00 p.m. (EST), fans can participate in special Pokémon-themed activities and even take a photo with Pikachu.

Retailers around the country will also celebrate 20 years of Pokémon on Saturday, February 27. At participating Toys“R”Us locations, fans can receive special foil Pokémon TCG cards featuring Pikachu and Magikarp from the Pokémon TCG: Generations expansion, a Pokémon activity book, and a poster of the original 151 Pokémon, while supplies last. Fans can also purchase an exclusive Generations-themed binder at Toys“R”Us to store the new expansion. GameStop stores are offering a Mythical Pokémon poster with purchase of any Pokémon product while supplies last.

Hollywood Producers think Nintendo should definitely make movies

imageNintendo has tons of iconic characters such as Mario, Link, DK, Samus ect.  and many of you guys think Nintendo should make a movie for them (personally an action packed CGI LOZ game would be AWESOME) well 2 Hollywood Producers agree. Adrian Askarieh, and Roy Lee had this to say about Nintendo making Movies:

Adrian Askarieh, CEO of Prime Universe Films

“The Nintendo brand transcends the platform. You can say Nintendo and for a lot of people it still represents video games. Everyone knows Nintendo, kids, adults; it’s multi-generational. They have these wonderful properties that most of us have grown attached to. For them to not take advantage of that would be a bad idea. That was a huge risk for Marvel, but they did it and look at them now. The more iconic the characters are, they better the movies they will make.”

Roy Lee, co-founder of Vertigo Entertainment

“Nintendo is one I would love to do. It’s one of these properties that growing up I played every incarnation of their games from early Game Boy to GameCube to now the Wii U. You saw the progression of those characters from simple pixel versions, to now the amazing visuals they have for Mario. I feel like the world of Nintendo could translate well to the screen. I don’t know what the movie is, but I feel like there is something there that could be done.”

Nintendo’s President Kimishima has spoken before saying he was working on getting TV shows and Movies made so perhaps we will see Nintendo on the big screen soon. One can only dream!
