Nightly News Roundup

Leaked Trailer for Rayman: Legends Shows Off Wii U Features

After checking out this trailer for the sequel to Rayman: Origins on Wii U, my excitement meter for the system has gone into overload. For one, the graphics look amazing (yes, significantly better than Rayman: Origins!), the game boasts some very interesting online features, and finally, the game supports the Wii U’s NFC features, which look awesome. Click the link below to check out the trailer, and hopefully get as excited as I did!

eShop to Get Downloadable Full Retail Games

Starting with New Super Mario Bros. 2 (seemingly in August), the 3DS will let owners download certain retail games through the eShop! Nintendo has said, however, that the games will most likely be priced at the same cost as their respective retail prices, although this could change. Retailers will also be able to sell a 16-digit download code for the game off of their shelves. This is very exciting news, as having the option to boot up a game like Animal Crossing whenever you like is quite enticing.

NSMB2 will hopefully be the first of many to get a downloadable option.

Nintendo Skeptical of Bringing Fire Emblem: Awakening Overseas

Although Fire Emblem: Awkening has had the best opening of any game in the series, it’s still going to be a tough decision for Nintendo to bring the game over to the states and Europe. The series has never sold extremely well outside of Japan, although it is looking more likely that the game will make it’s way out of Japan because of the recently registered URLs. So, remember, if this game does come to your country, tell Nintendo you want these kinds of games by purchasing a copy!
