Nintendo Land M.I.A. from EU

Apparently, if you live in EU and ordered a Delux WiiU from Amazon you may need to check the box cause your copy of Nintendo Land may be missing. Sorry to hear that.

Iwata speaks

He had an interview with the guys at IGN and spoke about their online strategy and said this:

We have not thought that offering the same features that already exist within other online communities would be the best proposal for very experienced game players.

Nintendo has paid a great deal of attention to the dynamic of people playing video games together in the same room. With Wii U, we thought about expanding this concept into separate rooms which are connected online. Miiverse is a network community dedicated to video games that represents a very unique game-dedicated social graph that has never existed before.

He also spoke about the update on the WiiU at launch:

Personally I think that users should be able to use all the functions of a console video game machine as soon as they open the box. So I feel very sorry for the fact that purchasers of Wii U have to experience a network update which takes such a long time, and that there are the services which were not available at the hardware’s launch.

5 bucks on the 3ds eshop. Classic awesomeness

Yoshi’s Land rumors

so, there was leaked info that came from Best Buy claiming there is a new Yoshi’s Land game coming for the WiiU. Here is a description by Best Buy:

Take Yoshi on an epic adventure to remember in Yoshi Land for Nintendo Wii U. Check out Yoshi as you’ve never seen him before: in glorious high definition. Enjoy dual-screen control thanks to the Wii U Touchscreen GamePad, while you’ll also be able to experience full integration with Nintendo’s MiiVerse service.

3DSXL and Mariokart 7 to be bundled

this is soon to come to America… and for the price of 199.99, which is pretty much the price of a 3DSXL by itself. The game will be pre-downloaded onto the 3DSXL and not a physical copy

free Coin Rush courses on NSMB2

these courses will be available until Feb 1st 2013, then they will cost 2.50 U.S. dollars. They are inspired by classic Super Mario Bros and Super Mario Bros 3 levels. Here’s what the awesome Scott Moffitt had to say:

 

“Nintendo fans have once again demonstrated their passion for the Super Mario Bros. franchise. The Gold Classics Pack is just one small way for us to thank players for their dedication. We’re all eager to see just how high that coin tally can get.”

– Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing.

WiiU sales

400,000 sold in it’s first week… I think that is pretty fantastic. Here is what Reggie Fils-aime had to say

“Wii U is essentially sold out of retail and we are doing our best to continually replenish stock. Retailers are also doing their best to get the product to store shelves. But as soon as product hits retail, they’re selling out immediately.”
