Nintendo will not be making an appearance at this week’s Gamescom in Germany, and most of the Wii U updates that came out from the event (so far) were from publisher Ubisoft. ONM Editor-In-Chief Chandra Nair tells Nintendo fans to keep faith because the ‘good stuff’ is coming soon. Chandra didn’t specify, however, whether the news will be related to Wii U or Nintendo 3DS.

“Keep the faith nintendo fans. You won’t see much at gamescom other than ubi updates but the good stuff IS just around the corner”



  1. my theory, the word “is” is bold, if you reveresed that word you si or in numbers: 21, so maybe on august 21 we will here something? or 21 days? it could also be a 12 so maybe 12 days?


    • I never understood the appeal of the Animal Crossing series……
      I guess I’m just too used to sim games with some form of combat to give the series a passing grade.
      Calm is good but too much of it puts me to sleep.
      I liked Act Raiser on the SNES for being a grand mix of both Action and Sim game elements. If anyone likes both of these things then I highly recommend either finding the cartridge or getting the emulated version of it for your PC.


      • I not really into Sim games, although i did like Rollercoaster World, thats was sweet, but i love Animal Crossing, its just so, chilled out, yet hectic, walking around calmly, tending to your city then a present on a balloon hovers above the screen and you’re like “OH SHIIIITTT, GET THE SLINGSHOT!!!!” running about like a dick, and then running around catching bugs or sneaking like a boss to catch an annoying cicada, then fishing for sharks. Its cool.


  2. Hmmm, funny thing is in Ireland if you get directions from someone and they say it’s just around the corner, it could mean there’s still a bit to go yet. :-)

    But didn’t they say they would concentrate on Wii U after the XL is launched? And that launches this weekend in the States and I think Australia next weekend so we may get more details beginning in September



    see when i decide to buy a 3ds xl instead of a wii u, i see this comment. “dont give up” sighs. Chandra. she hot?


  4. Super secret Zelda? Stealthy surprise Nintendo All Stars Racing? Metroid Apocalypse? Pokemon MMO? Marvel VS Nintendo VS Square VS Capcom VS Nsync- Armored Addition?


  5. Aeolus Clone Handbook: MyNintendoNew(b)s edition™

    Rule 1 of being Aeolus: You do NOT present yourself as the “real” Aeolus. There is no need to call yourself the “real” Aeolus, you are a clone; your objective is to Aeolus the living hell out of the comment section. You are part of an omnipresent entity and the “original one” has better things to do. Unfortunately “Anonymous” are generally ignored on here, therefore you must become an Aeolus, the fanboys do not like Aeolus. This is their biggest weakness that you can exploit to your bidding.

    Always use proper grammar/spelling. Absolutely NO exception. Failure to do so will result in you being Aeolused.

    Use facts and credible sources to support your arguments against the foul upcoming enemy known as the Wii U, powered by Casualoru Greedwata. They lied to you, they’re not delivering a “hardcore” console. They preach gameplay over graphics when there is nothing wrong with having both. This company must be shown up, and the masses must be educated in order to save their money and invest in superor, real gaming machines, for the TRUE GAMERS™.

    You are not a True Gamer when you:
    Think New Super Mario Bros 2 isn’t a blatant cash grab.
    Contemplate buying a Wii U which has nothing but multiplatform ports and obvious timed exclusives.
    Spout nonsense like “graphics don’t matter”.
    Claim Sony (or MS) will a result a next generation console for $599 and fail to explain what on earth will cause it to have such a retail price.
    Believe that Nintendo Network will be on par with XBL/PSN.
    Like Mario Kart 7 over MKDS/SC.
    Think sales determine product quality.
    Think Nintendo innovates everything and doesn’t just rehash already done ideas.
    Think Skyward Sword really needed its motion controllers and is a “hardcore” game.
    Think that the Wii U isn’t an Overclocked 360.
    There is more to disclose but that’s not necessary, common sense guides you.

    Failure to follow any of these basic guidelines will result in you being Aeolused and exposed as the secret Nintendrone that you are.

    Happy Aeolusing.



  6. I doubt it.

    That’s because i’m skeptic about the wiiu and how Nintendo will be relevant at the next generation. I’m a fan of Nintendo since the SNES era and I think the Wii was a blessing and a curse for the company. This strengthened the company because he had been suffering from the N64, but it made Nintendo into a modus operandi which is unbearable which is the ”I dont need to prove anything to my competitors”. The gaming market is much larger than the radius of reach of fans and fanboys. This is a mistake, for the god’s sake!

    If Nintendo really wants to make casual gamers and enthusiasts share the same videogame for their future games, they will have to not only prove worthy of that trust, but also prove to his older fans that they will support their expectations.

    I really want an F-Zero with 1080p resolution and support for 30 players online, but if they are at least 10 with constant velocity and without lags, for me it’s an okay.


  7. i wonder if someone is onto something here, this time last year we heard about the 3ds price cut so i predict that we get the release date of nintendo wii and all the “good stuff” that goes with it.


  8. I’m hoping for an announcement on the price, release date, and new features for Wii U. Yeah new games would be great but we have quite the line-up coming already. I want to see what there online features will be and what the Wii U can do that competitors can’t. Also the announcement of a youtube app and more for the 3DS would be nice. Also games announced for that system are always welcome.


  9. by “good stuff” they really mean they have their own line of shrooms. mario doesnt really fly with a raccoon tail, and bowser really doesnt do black magick to grow 3 4 5 times as big he really is on shrooms. 1 year supply right here shiggy i want to turn to into the juggernaut.


  10. This is news? Lolz ok…what does he know? Does he work for nintendo? No. He just has shit hair and looks like a rooster He is a games journalist…

    Stop listening to reps or journalista and actually wait for a fucking nintendo direct where they make official statements


  11. I’m waiting patiently for more Wii U news. The rumour mill is getting old. It’s time to get that beautiful thing into the consumers’ hands. I think there will be a Nintendo Direct soon. Leave luck to heaven.


  12. I want a new Star Fox with online multiplayer (maybe a team battle, 4 vs 4). Also, I want a MMO in which we use the Gamepad to activate the spells and skills and powers! =3
