It was a brilliant decision by Nintendo to allow us to vote for the character we would like to see most appear in Super Smash Bros. Nintendo of America clarified yesterday that you are able to vote for any character from any video game franchise and that has got people voting in their droves. Anyone is fair game including Bayonetta, Knuckles and Banjo. Game Informer has listed their favourite choices to appear in Super Smash Bros. Here’s their list.
- Shovel Knight
- Young Link
- Simon Belmont
We all know that The Legend of Zelda Wii U has been delayed until sometime next year, so what other games are Wii U owners looking forward to this year? Well, it turns out that Monolith’s Xenoblade Chronicles X is the top of Game Informer readers lists and rightly so as the original Xenoblade Chronicles was one of the best JRPG’s of recent years. Xenoblade Chronicles X is followed by Star Fox Wii U and Splatoon. You can see the results in the pie chart above.
You’ve probably noticed that as of late Game Informer cover story reveals are usually about brand new Xbox One and PlayStation 4 games in development. However, Andy McNamara, Editor-In-Chief of Game Informer, has said on Twitter that he’s always in talks with Nintendo to have one of their games as the cover reveal. Would you like to see a brand new Nintendo game on the front of Game Informer or rather see it revealed in a Nintendo Direct?
It seems as though Game Informer is the first publication to publish their review of the long awaited Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D for the Nintendo 3DS. The magazine has given the game a particularly impressive 9.25/10. Game Informer was impressed with the subtle changes that Nintendo has introduced to the remake and they believe it makes a great game even better. Our review of the game should go live sometime tomorrow.
Purists will decry the changes made to Majora’s Mask no matter how slight they may be, but I am seated firmly in the “change is good” camp. It’s everything you remember, but without the boredom or frustration related to the passage of time. Majora’s Mask was a game ahead of its time in 2000, and revisiting it under this new lens only confirms that sentiment. Whether you’re returning to Termina or visiting it for the first time, Majora’s Mask 3D is the ideal way to experience this classic.
This seems like a long stretch but Amazon has apparently put up a description for the February issue of Game Informer. What’s interesting is the cover game is apparently Earthbound Forever. It seems pretty far-fetched but stranger things have happened in the past. The description says the game is coming to Wii U in 2016.
Yesterday, Game Informer teased fans on Twitter that their cover game for the month of December would be revealed. Well now it has been officially unveiled and it has turned out to be Just Cause 3 which is destined to be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in 2015. If you’re interested, you can read more about the game, here.
Game Informer is yet again teasing readers about its new cover game that will be revealed to the world tomorrow. Andrew Reiner, who is the executive editor of Game Informer, is promising that we are in for a nice surprise. As always there’s no hints as to what to expect, but let’s hope it’s something that will appear on Nintendo platforms this time around. What would you like to see announced?
