Pokemon Director Would Like ‘A Cool New Version Of Pokemon Snap’

Pokemon director Junichi Masuda has said that as a gamer he would love to play a brand new version of Pokemon Snap running on the latest hardware. However, Masuda said that just adding improved current gen visuals wouldn’t make it as interesting as people imagine.

“As a player I definitely want to play a cool new version of Pokemon Snap, but at the same time I also think if it was just a remake with better graphics I don’t think it would be as interesting as a lot of people are imagining.”

“If someone was to end up developing it they’d have to come up with some cool ideas to really make it a good game for the current generation. It’s sort of like what I was saying about Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. If it was just a direct port that would be kind of neat as well, but having new elements is definitely important.”

Ultimate NES Remix For Nintendo 3DS Coming November 7th In Europe

Compiled in one action-packed game, rapid-fire challenges from 16 of Nintendo’s finest NES-era titles are making their way to Nintendo 3DS and 2DS systems on 7th November in the form of Ultimate NES Remix, releasing at retail and on Nintendo eShop.

Ultimate NES Remix is a mash-up of classic Nintendo games that have been literally remixed to offer short time-based challenges with a twist.

From beating Ridley from Metroid, to performing the unusual task of making Princess Peach save herself, even the most seasoned of retro gamers will be tested, not least in the game’s Championship Mode, where players will take on a series of score-based challenges from Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, and Dr. Mario. For those looking to test their platforming reflexes in a unique new game mode, Speed Mario Bros. is a full version of the original Super Mario Bros., but presented at super-speed, requiring players to think fast when blazing a trail for the goal pole. Meanwhile, for dedicated players who earn 3 stars in all of the game’s challenges, the Japanese version of NES Remix, Famicom Remix, will be unlocked, allowing the games to be experienced in fresh new ways.

In order for players to showcase their achievements to others, in Ultimate NES Remix online leaderboards will be available for every challenge and mode in the game, allowing players to see how their scores compare against fellow competitors from across Europe. To check out the skills of the top performers, the online leaderboards will also contain a feature to watch videos of successfully completed challenges – perfect for picking up some handy gaming tips from players at the top of the rankings!

You Can Now Buy Games On Nintendo.com And Have Them Sent To Your Console

You can now purchase digital games on Nintendo.com and have them sent directly to the console once they become available. All you need to do is give them your Nintendo Network ID. Once they have this you have the option of having it sent to your console or alternatively have them email you the code and you can redeem it. At the moment there’s Fantasy Life and Smash Bros Wii U and others available to pre-order and presumably you’ll have them sent to your console on the day of release. Quite a handy feature.

Thanks, Tyler

Looks As Though A Web Version Of The Nintendo eShop Could Be Coming

NeoGAF member L-A has done a bit of digging and it looks as though a web version of the Nintendo eShop is currently in development at Nintendo. It isn’t too surprising considering Microsoft and Sony have similar offerings where you can pre-purchase content online and download it to your console. There aren’t any hints as to when this is coming, but it could be announced in a Nintendo Direct.
