Nintendo Minute Talks Xenoblade Chronicles, Mario Kart 8 And More

A new Nintendo Minute has gone live, featuring hosts Kit and Krysta’s favorite games of August. Among the titles discussed in the latest episode in the YouTube series are Xenoblade Chronicles and Mario Kart 8, which received Mercedes-Benz DLC last month. The recently-released Wii U rendition of SteamWorld Dig, which is available via the Nintendo eShop, was also talked about and compared to the Nintendo 3DS version of the mining platformer.

        1. Ofcourse faggot is non discrimitoray and applies as an insult to the DOUCHEY troll who posts about baby games when their console has literally no games of merit whatsoever.

          1. The ps4 is getting a ton of games just around the corner. More than wii u will ever dream of. Want to bitch at me fine but you should blame failwata for this not me.

            1. What does it matter if the ps4 gets a bunch of games this is a Nintendo site not ps4 site and for the people who are supposedly ps4 fans y are you here all the time is the system that boring?

            No comment about this Warriors game

            1. What are you talking about? I would buy at least half of those games of the came Wii U. And his point was to show you that PS4 does have games, not whether you like them out not. And in a few days, he can add Destiny to that list as well.

              1. Good for him and good for the ps4. This is a Nintendo site. We get it, it has games great. Flip flop your ass on over to the ps4 websites and talk about it over there. The guy wants to start a flame war with little side jabs then spouts off his list which is a decent list but not nothing amazing really and if someone on a Nintendo site decides to pick apart the list then who cares cause all of it started from a troll anyway. I dont even see why people respond to these trolls or why they are even here in the first place. How can this be all they have to do with there lives when they get online. Its pathetic and so is flip floping I hate flip flopers. I dont give a fuck what his point was I don’t have a problem with the ps4 but take that to a is4 website people don’t want to have a freaking console debate on every freak post. You people take this stuff way to seriously. Just love the games that come out on the systems you love and stop adding fuel to the people’s post that are tryimg to start flame wars. End of story

                1. If this is a Nintendo site, why the hell do people keep bringing up Xbox One every time there is an article about sales? Why do people here talk about its resolution and what games it has? The people on this site constantly argue about that console and make themselves look like idiots. And first of all, the “war” was started by a troll. It’s incredibly easy to ignore trolls and yet people always make themselves look like idiots trying to argue with them. And I said I would buy those games if they came to Wii U because I like those games. But you know what people here do? THEY DAMAGE CONTROL. Instead of saying that they would like to play those games, they go on and on talking about how blah blah Wii U has better games. Blah blah Xbox One is shit blah. And they make themselves look even dumber than the troll that actually made the comment. Because it’s clearly obvious that people in this comment section with names like “PS4” are trolling and these people take that shit seriously. I don’t give a fuck if this website is called “” It’s still a gaming website. People lose their goddamn mind every time someone mentions something other Nintendo . I do see some people in this comment section occasionally talking about games that aren’t on Nintendo systems despite being on this website but they are gamers so they can talk about any game that they please. Even the owner of this damn website talks about non-Nintendo games. Most of the people here just seem like biased fanboys. Even the trolls here seem to have more intelligence than they do. Which is really pathetic.

              2. “I would buy at least half of those games..of the came Wii U”? My brain hurts. XD

                Out of all of these games, GTA5 and Destiny only interest me for PS4. That’s it. I’m waiting to see if MGS5, Arkham Knight and KH3 are any good.

      1. At least our system have games.

        I’m pretty sure that you spend most of your time here, bashing at Nintendo because you’re to jealous and bored. Not to mention your PS4 is just collecting dust.

        When’s the last time you even turned the thing “ON” and actually play games on it and not run it as a DVD Player?

        1. It’s an obvious troll, I don’t see why you’re taking it seriously.

          If there is no bashing, what would be the point of the term “constructive criticism”?

          As for me, PS4 is my most regularly used console so far. Especially if you can appreciate downloadable games like Velocity 2X and Resogun.

            1. Let me do the work, p…s..4…. h…a…s…games. wii…..u……..doesn’t. So……..ps4……will ….be the….most…used………console…….. while wii u……….. collects dust.

              Whole point is wi u is a secondary console. If your saying ps4 has no games, all that is over, so many games are coming out now just around the corner. Wii u will get none of those games.

              1. Which is a FUCKING SHAME. If Nintendo bothered to approach third parties and get all those games on their console, the Wii U would be selling like hotcakes, and there would be less stress for them to constantly developing new games.

              2. Just imagine this list of Wii U games coming out in 2014:

                Far Cry 4
                Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor
                Super Smash Bros
                Batman: Arkham Knight
                Assassin’s Creed Rogue
                Dragon Age: Inquisition
                COD Advanced Warfare
                Alien Isolation
                The Evil Within
                Dying Light
                Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
                Tales From The Borderlands
                Watch Dogs
                Devil’s Turd
                Sonic Boom
                Captain Toad Treasure Tracker
                Bayonetta 2
                Hyrule Warriors

                I’m not even adding 8th gen games here. These are ALL gonna be available on PS3. Nintendo has the potential to have the biggest lineup ever for any console, but NO, we can live on first parties only

              1. Who me? lmao no. I see it now though. I agree but the wii u is to crappy to handle any future games. So it’s nintendo’s fault for making such a shitty system. Nintendo with all the 3rd party games would be awesome, they just need to make a good system before hand.

          1. Seriously i hate when you say anything remotely negative about nintendo and people freak out and say “wow im a loser who cries over anything bad said about nintendo even if true, what did they do to you? Your just here because your ps4 has no games or because your miserable and have to talk bad about nintendo.” or because we like nintendo but aren’t a worthless wiitard.

            Seriously together WII stand lmao!! The name says it alone, more like Together WIITARDS stand!!!! What a worthless mut.

            1. I’m still trying to get pass why Nintendo upgraded the 3Ds and giving that more games and yet no upgrade on Wii U hardware? Bayonetta two disk uses up 32gigs of memory. If Dumbtendo at least made a 50gig Wii U it could get more hardcore gamers back. After all Lego City Undercover and W101 were 3rd party tittles not ported and actually worked the gamepad and they sold poorly. Besides the 3Ds is like the best selling hardware why does it need an upgrade this soon? And besides the new 3Ds with its small exclusives will only put more delays on Wii U games.

              1. Well the 3DS has been out for over 3 years now, very close to 4 years. The Wii U, on the other hand, hasn’t even been out for 2 yet.

            2. The Wii u can barely handle Netflix. I was watching “Orange is the new black” on my Wii U and an error message kept popping up. So I had to use another device also sharing the same WiFi just to continue. Also if they thought more on the pro controller and backwards capabilitiy to Wii it would have been more impressive to play brawl with using any controller you want. Another thing stupid is why add new 3Ds with NFC tech and not make a upgrade Wii U to have GameCube controller adapters? Wii U could have been a better console if they thought about adding power in 2008…not graphics power since Zelda U proved that but power to run Netflix, and extend wireless Gamepad to 100ft or more. And add 2 more cores after all dumbtemdo gave the 3Ds a faster CPU and the current one is still selling. Dumbtemdo won’t even make adjustments for the year 2014 with their Wii U though. It’s stupid if you ask me.

          2. ill tell you what i dont apreciate the joke that is playstation now sence xbox nor sony have enough sense or are just plain to greedy to have backwards compatibility i bought myself a refurbished ps 2 might get a ps3 a whole lot of ps3 games and enjoy that untill ps5 comes out then i may get ps4

              1. Look I respect your opinion ice but just because someone likes casual gaming doesn’t mean they are wii tards. I dont care for casual stuff but a lot of people do doesn’t mean they are retarded though I love the wii u its going to be the GameCube 2.0 devils third bayonetta wonderful 101 zombiU we still have smash bros to come Hyrule warriors captain toad yarn yoshi project cars skylanders just dance watch dogs pokken is definitely coming zelda wii u star fox mario maker splatoon xenoblade chronicles plenty I haven’t mentioned if people enjoy those games who are you to judge. I have a ps4 its okay not great ps3 is better but I love my wii u its my numberone cconsole ps3 second and ps4 third

              2. Sony is not really that dumb though. They proved backwards is not needed to sell a console. They also proved power, hype, graphics, sell consoles. PS4 rather it has games or not proved software doesn’t always sell hardware. That proved Iwata wrong in all areas. Yet chooses to upgrade a hot selling 3Ds when the money in R&D should have been used to get the Wii U to 2017 technology.

            1. Yeah. Backwards compatibility is one thing Nintendo does right. But it’s holding back their consoles, because their forced to have the same or similar architecture to their last gen console

              1. I never understood why they can trick NSMBU to thinking the pro controller is a Wiimvote to work but it can’t work on Wiimode. Why didn’t they think this through in 2008? That was stupid. After all MK64, Starfox 64 and other downloaded software that came out before Wii won’t work with the pro controller. All these people in Nintendo R&D with PHDs, professional IT and yet was.too stupid to think of this in 2008.

              2. Another thing stupid. Why when switching to Wiimode did they make it where you need a Wiimote and TV to click the icon to switch? Yet Wii to GameCube all you had to do was put the GameCube disk in and it operated off the same home menu. You’d think they would want to keep it simple the same way with Wii U too.

    1. I’m one of those people. I only played Xenoblade Chronicles for about an hour, but I hated everything about it. I was left scratching my head, wondering “why do so many people think this game is so great”? But to be fair, I’m not a fan of Japanese RPG’s (if that’s what this is considered).

      1. You didn’t give it enough of a chance. 1 hour lmao…. really!? It takes a few at least for it to click, it did for me.

      2. Seriously you didn’t even give the game a chance, you didn’t know how the battle system worked or how the story went, or explore anything. YOU DIDN’T EVEN GET TO PLAY THE GAME AT ALL LMAO!! A game like that should at least be given like 6 hours or so, so you can actually get somewhere. If i did the same i would have been just like you.

      3. That’s where you messed up. You didn’t play enough of it. Like how anime take a few episodes for it to finally get better, a JRPG takes a few hours for it to finally get better. The first few episodes/hours are usually the lamest moments of the anime/game.

  1. I feel like these Nintendo Minute videos are just 10 minute asvertisements for new games…it’s kinda painful to watch

    1. That’s exactly what it is. It’s pure cringe. She says her score is 1,100 in MK8. Utter BS. She clearly doesn’t play the game. Anyone who has, knows what I mean. They’re paid sales reps and they’re awful at it.

  2. I wonder how many wiitards played xenoblade?? The answer is none, your not a real nintendo fan if you haven’t played this game lmao.

    Great games to play on nintendo, naah the wiitards will just damage control nintendo and would rather buy wii music than one of the best game hands down of last gen.

    AHHHH i remember when nintendo fans would make amazing games like REmake sell over a million, now you got wii fit doing that. I’m sorry guys but i hate wiitards.

  3. Hey man,

    Just noticed your site and the fact you’re a Nintendo fan. Same here.

    To the point I have started a small project to allow people to legally play NES games online. You can see a demo here: feel free to have a play around and make any suggestions on the page comments. The catch with doing this is, that to legally allow people to play the games online, the website owner must have original copies.

    I have about 8 classics but looking for more, let me know if you’re interested in helping out. I have ten classics n good condition and just put up a photo as proof. I’m looking for the first Zelda game though.

    ANTi-CAP.COM (


      1. Excuse me? I have no interest in money?

        I let people play games “I OWN” for free.

        I thought you might of been interested in a project some of us are working on (non profit). But clearly not, and it is you that is concerned by $$.

        If I have misunderstood something feel free to type properly and explain clearly what your problem is.

        As far as I know you have been done no wrong by me?

        PS: You sound real G-STAR WTF!!??


      1. Yup so graphics does matter huh? A month ago when I brought up power the Nintendo ass kissesr attacked me. Funny how the PS4 has power, cost more, lacks games and can sell over 100k a week. Iwata should have thought of the power of PS4 in 2008 not trying to over power a PS3. That was stupid. And even if Wii U version of SSB will take longer so? Delay the 3DS version. Wii U needs SSB first. 3DS is selling over 100k a week at 40million in stale base. That’s stupid.

        1. And why are they hyping up 3Ds version of Super Smash? Worst is release New 3D before smash even comes out in Japan. You know those new 3Ds owners are going to want Super smash on their handheld over the Wii U. Like Nintendo commander said people are not rich. But a new handheld 3Ds and Smash bros 3Ds is just going to put more conflict for SSB Wii U. Worst with new 3Ds having built in NFC also takes that exclusive feature away from Wii U. So only advantage Wii U has over 3Ds now is better visuals and it actually works away from your tv. Why will people need a Wii U now if the new 3Ds does everything the Wii U can but better?

        1. That’s weird because I’m pissed off with Nintendo for announcing the New 3DS when I already have an XL. I’ll destroy you in a debate dude.

            1. Knack
              Killzone: Shadowfall
              Infamous: Second Son.

              Can’t compare any more because the PS4 has shit all exclusives out right now.

              I’d prefer Nintendo Land instead of those three games.

                  1. Congrats guy, you are the first person I’ve seen in 2014 who actually used hipster seriously.

                    There have only been 4 Killzone games in the course of 10 years. Compare that to one Mario game every year. You still haven’t described to me how the game is casual

                    So tell me how inFamous is casual exactly? You seemed to have avoided my question entirely. How typical.

                    1. You’re a hipster. You people follow what’s popular and not what’s actually good. I don’t care how many Killzone games there have been. It’s a rehashed FPS. One Mario game every year? Tell me what Mario game is coming out this year?

                      In Infamous you just go around blowing crap up. Just like GTA, it’s casual.

                    2. And you? You follow everything Nintendo does like sheep without caring about ANY mistake you make. Trash.

                      “I don’t care how many Killzone games there have been. It’s a rehashed FPS. ”
                      Do you understand the definition of “rehash”? Such an idiot,

                      Captain Toad Treasure Tracker, Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros? You’re such a pushover.

                      In Mario you go around jumping at crap. In Zelda you go around swinging your cute little Master Sword at crap. You can say that about every single game in the industry, and it won’t make a difference.

                      Yet the GTA series is one of the highest rated game series ever made. I wonder why, if it’s so causal? Hmm…

                    3. “And you? You follow everything Nintendo does like sheep without caring about ANY mistake you make.”

                      “That’s weird because I’m pissed off with Nintendo for announcing the New 3DS when I already have an XL.”

                      Exposed and goodbye.

                    4. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker=spin off that focuses on a character that isn’t even Mario.

                      Mario Kart 8=racing spin off game that focuses on not just Mario but others.

                      Super Smash Brothers=a multiplayer fighting game that doesn’t even focus on Mario but EVERY SINGLE Nintendo character ever.

                      So according to your opinion, every Donkey Kong, Yoshi, & WarioWare game is also just another Mario game. You are an idiot at times, Shuhei. Using Mario as a fallback to defend your favorite games that are TRUE rehashes is a very nice defense for anyone that isn’t smart enough to realize the difference between a true game of a series & a spin off of said series.

                      1. Don’t be as stupid as Shuhei is being in this instance, Hollow. You’re smarter than that. Or maybe you aren’t. Mario Kart 8, I’ll give you that one but only with a grain of salt since it’s not a main Mario game.

                        1. He was referring to the fact that Mario has games every year. It doesn’t matter if they’re spin-offs. The point is, it’s Mario… Every year. He’s here literally every year. He was in 2012 with NSMBU and NSMB2, last year with 3D World, this year with Mario Kart 8 and Smash Bros, and before next year is even here, there’s Mario Party 10 AND Mario Maker. Mario here, Mario there, Mario EVERYWHERE. Lol.

                        2. xD And? He’s Mr. fucking Nintendo. That’s like bitching about Disney releasing something with Mickey Mouse every year! Only idiots would put their mascot on the back burner or ignore it completely. *cough*CrapcumwithMegaman*cough*

                    5. The PS4 is full of rehashed casual third party crap. Call of Duty, Battlefield, Assassins Milk. Have fun paying $5 to run faster in Unity ye stupid sheep. How’s paying for online going? Still getting hacked?

                      1. U mad bro?

                        Enjoy every single third party games never coming to your one and only console dude, aka missing an entire generation. How’s the pathetic Nintendo Network going? Still stuck with region lock?

                        1. The only third party games I care about are Batman: Arkham Knight, FFXV and Kingdom Hearts 3. Notice how Japan doesn’t buy games like COD, Battlefield, Desting Far Cry, Assassins Creed etc? Because it casual rehashed western crap.

                        2. Destiny*

                          Nintendo Network in fine dude. I don’t have a problem with region lock because I don’t need to buy games from the US or Japan.

                        3. What you care about =/= the thoughts of the entire gaming industry. The world doesn’t revolve around you buddy. A little heads up.

                          Notice how in Japan, absolutely nothing is selling there except for CASUAL mobile apps shit. Notice how in Japan, HARDWARE SALES SLUMPED TO A FIVE-YEAR LOW.

                        4. In its debut week, Call of Duty: Black Ops II on the PS3 is the second best selling game in Japan, moving 197,350 units. If you add in the 22,177 copies the Xbox 360 version netted, Call of Duty: Black Ops II sold 219,527 copies, surpassing the physical physical and download 213,414 copies Animal Crossing: New Leaf sold.

                        5. And yet not thanks to your empire in any way…

                          Both you and the Xbots are life dependent on the lesser lifeforms but once they start to crumble by their own hands, the chainreaction will affect both of you while our empire silently and satisfactory laughs at you all for making games that cost a vast amount of resources with gameplay that still most of the times does not rival our sacred games…

      1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

        You Nintendites and Sonyans in here are somewhat idiotic…

        I don’t like the PS4 nor do any game besides LBP games appeal to me but we should set our differences aside and temporary build an alliance to counter and annihilate the Xbots once and for all while they are still vulnerable, specially after their massive epic defeat in Japan…

        Let’s rule this universe as parent and child…

        1. Nintendo is my Blood Reborn

          Seems the Xbox One will not even need destroying at the rate it is going NC, my country, although consisting of very little gamers, is dominantly made up of people who play PS4, the Xbox One here seem to be uninteresting.

            1. Will if you want to see Xbox get destroyed stop accepting any crap Nintendo does so they can make changes and destroy Xbox. After all by accepting anything Nintendo does is what games like Wii Party U, Nintendoland, was worked on before Starfox U, Metriod etc. You know Nintendo doesn’t naturally have common sense because if they did they would have noticed a long time ago that casual games were declining. Why didn’t they see that when games like DKR and Skyward sword temeporaly increased Wii sales near the end of Wii’s life cycle. A 3 year old could have knew not to throw those same casual games to “Project Cafe”.

              1. I’ve never accepted everything our empire does, specially not with the Wii U launch but everything they do is still better than allowing the Xboxes still exist…

                However High Command did say that they are focusing on our Elite Warriors now so we should expect the rise of core games…

        2. Why can’t Nintendo fans and Sony fans just get along? Except Microsoft fans. They can continue yelling at COD…
