Nintendo releasing 5 mobile games by Mar. 2017, committed to significant support for each title

Nintendo to Smartphones

Following posting their fiscal results for the year ending March 2015, Nintendo held an investor’s meeting outlining a bit of what’s to come. A chunk of the discussion centered on the business partnership with DeNA in order to bring Nintendo into mobile.

The company explained that they will “carefully select appropriate IP and titles,” so don’t expect a flood of all sorts of shovelware with the Nintendo brand just for quick cash grabs. They also indicated that they plan to “release approximately five titles by the end of the next fiscal year, which is the end of March 2017.”

They go on to explain that even though that seems like a small number, the company aims to “make each title a hit.” Nintendo wants to “thoroughly operate every one of them for a significant amount of time after” release, and that makes the five title number much harder to attain than what’s currently standard fare for mobile gaming.

If you asked me a few years back if Nintendo should or would move to mobile for game releases, I would have said “no” on both counts. Now that the industry has shifted towards mobile gaming and we’ve seen what the likes of Zynga and EA do in the mobile free-to-play space, I’m ready to see what Nintendo is willing to do.

The company has proven that they do DLC the right way, even though it took them forever to get there. Their Mario Kart 8 stuff added more than half the amount of launch content to the game for just over 10 bucks, demonstrating significant value. Let’s hope the same proves true for mobile content.

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry, e incluso un fanboy BlackBerry, sólo porque resulta que tengo probado, y lo disfrutamos, el Z30-libre del teclado. Sin embargo, a pesar de mi predilección por ambos teclados y el RIM avances (er, BlackBerry) ha realizado recientemente, el Nexus One de Google 5 sigue siendo mi smartphone defecto de elección.
Pero eso cambió hace dos semanas - al menos temporalmente - cuando Jon Rettinger me retó a tratar de vivir con el dispositivo insignia de BlackBerry, el Pasaporte. Y ya que estoy por lo general para cualquier reto tecnológico que decidí darle un paso - y así que me puse el Nexus a un lado y se zambulló en la parte más profunda.

Gears of War remaster screenshots from footage leak

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo The only thing Black Tusk and Microsoft have left to do on the Gears of War remaster is actually announce it. We’ve seen it hinted at, denied, and rated.Now we have some footage accidentally leaked onto the Xbox DVR site, likely by a developer who forgot to disable the automatic upload.This isn’t gameplay footage per se – the enemy is standing still in the clips while the player attacks them. It’s likely test footage for some of the gore physics or something like that. But it’s definitely footage taken in-game.The two images above were pulled from a NeoGAF thread on the leak comparing the screenshot of the new clips to one from the original Gears. Microsoft is likely scrambling to take the footage down, but currently the thread, linked to in the source for this story, has links to the videos.If you decide to click through and watch the clips, it’s important to note that they were filmed using the Xbox Game DVR and were filmed three months ago, before t…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launch trailer take 2 – Go Your Own Way

You can call it another lonely day. Haven’t we been here once before? CD Projekt RED believes that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is far too amazing for just one launch trailer, so it has decided to create yet another just to drive home the fact that you need to play this game.The new “Go Your Way” launch trailer features more in-engine graphics instead of impressive pre-rendered CG, and its focus this time around is not our big, bad hero Geralt but rather the Princess Ciri. Don’t be fooled by her puppy dog eyes and adorable freckles. This girl will kill you in a flash! The trailer tells her tale of how she wandered from home, and tells of how Geralt sets out to find her.The relationship between these two is not the only star of the trailer either. Geralt’s fantasy world is full of real life horrors that extend beyond mere monsters. Slaughter, torture, executions, dangerous seductions. The trailer bares all that you will find in this horrible yet beautiful place, giving you a taste of the s…
