That Fast Racing Neo art is gorgeous, too. I don’t know why physical releases make games seem more “legit,” but there’s just something about it. That Fast Racing Neo art is gorgeous, too.

Like Toadlord, I haven't had time for Fast Racing Neo yet. In fact, I haven't even downloaded it. However seeing the box staring back at me on my gaming shelf might provide more inspiration. Would love to see Axiom Verge on a disc as well. I've played through it on PS4, but it just "feels" like a Nintendo game to me (much like Shovel Knight). Can't wait to play through it again with the added advantages of the Wii U's Gamepad. Will be hoping these come Stateside, along with other Nintendo “eShop selects.”

I haven't had the time I would like to put into the game yet, but I was happy to buy it at launch and show Nintendo that an F-Zero type game is still desired by fans. I have said it before, but if Nintendo chooses to outsource F-Zero again Shin'en seems like a good bet to take up the mantle. The developers for Fast Racing Neo really deserve this love.

Comment on Nintendo Reveals Stages for Final Splatfest by geoffrey http://www.nintendojo.com/news/nintendo-reveals-stages-for-final-splatfest#comment-37128 geoffrey Thu, 21 Jul 2016 21:05:17 +0000 http://www.nintendojo.com/?p=158708#comment-37128 Clearly a troll vote. It has to be. There's seriously no other conceivable answer. I legitimately may not play now because of Towers being in. The stage just simply isn't fun - if they have a even half-competent charger and you don't, there's no point in even playing the round. When it's in normal rotation, I routinely consciously pick a different game to play. I personally have no problems with Kelp Dome, but I know a ton of people who loathe it because of its size. Meh at Warehouse. It's an ok stage. Probably also good to have one of the originals in there. Clearly a troll vote. It has to be. There’s seriously no other conceivable answer.

Sixty bucks seems like a very fair price point considering how much games cost at launch. I think this will definitely move some units come holiday time.

Glad to see it has HDMI, but I wonder how it's going to upscale the games. Might be really interesting. Also, I second the wish that it took the old carts.

I'm surprised! The only thing that would make this better is a physical cartridge slot for us old-timers with piles of carts. Of course I've got all of these in some form(s), but yeah I'll probably spring for this. If nothing else, it's an awesome piece to travel with. Show the nieces and nephews what gaming used to be like. Also, there better be similar cute little working replicas of the SNES and N64 on the way! :^) 30 games worth having, including a bunch of third-party titles, at two bucks a pop. I’m surprised!
