Nintendo is Set to Release a New Console This Year

Sunday, March 6th, 2016

Nintendo is under a new president and he has teased us that Nintendo is aiming to release a new gaming console this year.

As to what that console is going to be, he is mum about the nitty-gritty details. He did say that the upcoming console will be different than what they have now and that people are going to like this new console Acheter r4 3ds.

Nintendo hasn’t had great success with the Nintendo Wii U console, which probably prompted them to go back to the drawing board and create a new and more exciting gaming console.

The new President of Nintendo did not disclose a lot of specific information about the new gaming console, but he did tease us with the name of it. Should it be released this year, the upcoming gaming console will be named “Nintendo NX”.

Again, since there was no other information divulged to us, we do not know whether this new console would be a portable gaming console or a big console akin to their Nintendo Wii U.

Seeing the trend of Nintendo, they are always the first ones to release new innovation and put it into a gaming perspective.

For those of you who do not know, Nintendo was the first gaming company that popularized motion-sensor gaming.

In fact, their Nintendo Wii was the first gaming console that made use of the motion-sensor gaming and it now sold more than 100 million copies worldwide (although, it is important to note that the Nintendo Wii U didn’t enjoy the same success as its predecessor had).

Another thing the new president of Nintendo said is that this new gaming console will have an entirely new and exciting game controller. If you can remember, the Nintendo Wii U’s controller can act as the actual screen of the game, which makes you turn off your TV as you can play on the actual controller itself.

A lot of Nintendo fans are speculating that the Nintendo NX will be the first ever gaming system that will be a portable/console hybrid. I mean, if this gaming system is a “new concept”, then it will pretty much be the case. Still, we do not know until the system is finally released.

Speaking of the release, the new Nintendo President said to us that the gaming console will be released “sooner rather than later”. This could mean that the upcoming Nintendo Gaming console will be released sometime in 2016.

Since the entire Nintendo gaming company is mum about the exact details of their new console, what are you guys expecting about the new unit? Well, I am hoping for new and exciting games that will truly utilize the new controller.

Furthermore, I am hoping that the new gaming console will have a competitively new hardware. Sony and Microsoft’s PS4 and Xbox One now sport more than capable hardware that is able to play any 3D games out there. Hopefully this new Nintendo console will be able to surpass its rival’s gaming units.

So, what do you think the Nintendo NX will be?

Fire Emblem: Awakening

Tuesday, January 12th, 2016

There is no doubt that the Nintendo 3DS console is an amazing portable gaming handheld device. There are a lot of games out there, each with specific genres. If you are a tactical RPG freak like me, then I have a treat for you.

Today, we are going to talk about Fire Emblem: Awakening. This is a Nintendo 3DS exclusive Fire Emblem title and we will go over what this game is all about and why I am recommending this to you if you want to have your Strategy RPG fix.

Fire Emblem’s story centers around the continents Archanea and Valm. Both of these continents have been featured in previous Fire Emblem games. The player then controls a unique character (it is called unique because you can tweak his/her facial features) who suffers from Amnesia. The player’s character will be adopted by the Prince of Ylisse named Chrom. Both you, the player and Chrom will defend Ylisse from creatures called “the Risen” and from a rival nation called Plegia.

As for the gameplay, there will be two game modes you can choose from: Classic and Casual mode. In Classic mode, each character that dies will be permanently out of the roster, and therefore, out of the game for good. In casual mode, everything is the same as the classic mode with the exception of the permanent death. Most people choose the casual mode because, well, it’s for casual gaming. If you prefer a more hardcore approach, you definitely have to try the classic mode.

Now let’s head on to the battle system. Fire Emblem Awakening’s battle system presents you with a tile layout, reminiscent of any other strategy RPGs out there. There are a few differences, though. Since this is a Nintendo 3DS exclusive title, the game takes advantage of the console’s dual screen. The top screen displays the terrain and overall map layout while the bottom screen displays character information.

When the battle starts, players can choose some of the characters from the total roster to be used in combat (with the exception of both the player’s character and Chrom, because they will always be there in the battlefield). When the battle commences, you can either choose to manually control your character or you can use the auto-battle function and let the AI do battle for you.

An interesting mechanic in the game is that whenever two characters are put next to each other, they will grant buffs and do certain special actions such as dual spells and blocking attacks. Furthermore, when the relationship of all of the characters, increases (which happens automatically during the course of the game), they will perform even stronger buffs and special attacks.

The characters, themselves, increase their levels after every level. Also, each one of the characters will have their own set of classes, which you can change during the course of the game. There is a total of 40 classes to choose from, which makes this game’s dynamic even more fun.

The Fire Emblem Awakening is a great game and one that you should play when you own a Nintendo 3DS console.
