Super Smash Bros

\n

For some this is the biggest piece of NEWS this year. Fans of Final Fantasy and Smash Bros will be pleased that one of the most requested characters has been announced. Cloud Strife is here with his buster sword and a new stage in tow. There are no dates on when he will be available, but we were told to expect news in early December. Have fun playing matches to the classic Final Fantasy theme song that will also be included.

64 Virtual Console

\n

Nintendo virtual consoles are quite popular. There are plenty of the games from the company's classic consoles available for players on the Wii U . Unfortunately, at this time, the Nintendo 64 isn't included. Adding a load of classic 64 games to the classic console right before the holidays would be in both the fans and Nintendo's interest.

Zelda Twilight Princess HD

\n

Fans have been spreading the rumor that Nintendo is gearing to release an HD remake of Link's Twilight Princess adventure. Considering several of the series past games have been remade in HD there is a good chance of this coming true.

Pokemon Z or GO

\n

While it is strange that we haven't had any news; there has not been any promise or mention of a new Pokemon game being in development. We know Go will release late next year and should not expect much news on it before January.

\n

All of our anxiety and stressing is bred from our expectation to be handed a mediocre Pokemon game yearly. Perhaps Nintendo is taking time to revolutionize the franchise. Personally I'm thinking the last few games have been experimental and hoping they announce something different with new game mechanics when the announcement is made.

Ace Attorney 6

\n

There is a good chance for an announcement for this cult franchise. The game had a demo appearance at the Tokyo Game Show this year. The game will likely release in Japan ahead of the U.S.,  so we should get a heads up before the game releases.

Zelda Wii U

\n

Ok Nintendo, enough is enough; This is all the reason I bought a Wii U. Where is my open world Zelda game? Fans have been teased with Wii U Zelda footage since before the console's release. The release is set for sometime next year, but some info would be appreciated. At least tell us now if this will become a NX exclusive tittle.

Pikmin 4

\n

Miyamoto himself confirmed that the game was in its final stages of development. While there was some speculation as to which console the tittle would release on, my bet is that this is a Wii U title -- not NX -- and we'll get some info or at least a mention.

A Brand New IP

\n

The next great nintendo IP could be announced today. Who will stand with heroes, bounty hunters, and plumbers as the next huge Nintendo franchise? There is a lot to gain from releasing a new character with a original game world. Nintendo has become stale recently and a brand new series bringing in fresh fans would help the company move in a new direction.

New amiibos

\n

You're running out of characters to "amiibize," Nintendo.

\n

That being said, there are plenty of little collectibles left to release. Hardcore collectors are just waiting to click checkout on some fresh new artifacts. Nintendo has done a great job keeping up with customer demand  for amibo's recently. Hopefully one more release is planned before the holidays.

New Smash Bros. DLC.

\n

The Super Smash Bros community has been well catered to since the game's release last fall. There have been three sets of DLC released that include characters, levels, and costumes. While there are some complaints about pricing, players typically enjoy the quality of the released items. In addition, Nintendo recently closed the most recent round voting for which character fans would like to see next, making this an excellent time to release announce new content.

What news will Nintendo give today?

\n

Later today (2 pm Pacific), Nintendo is hosting one of their Nintendo Direct streams. Historically these streams have been used to release big or exciting news to Nintendo fans. The hype surrounding this event is great due to it being the first since the CEO of Nintendo, Satoru Iwata Passed earlier this year. Here are some of the internet's predictions and wishes for the event.

Hyrule Warriors New Screenshots https://www.gameskinny.com/elmni/hyrule-warriors-new-screenshots https://www.gameskinny.com/elmni/hyrule-warriors-new-screenshots Wed, 21 May 2014 18:01:32 -0400 Pendy_617

Tecmo Koei and Nintendo's collaboration on Hyrule Warriors is expected to help bring some much-needed life back to the Wii U. In this week's issue of Famitsu magazine, we get some very nice looking screen shots and a look into the story which will combine Dynasty Warriors gameplay motifs and the world of The Legend of Zelda. 

Zelda Really Needs A Curfew

No surprise that the main story of the game is to rescue the princess of Hyrule from evil forces that are plaguing the lands. That being said, the story never gets old and when combined with new gameplay, it's like seeing it for the first time all over again. The big difference in this game is from whom the princess needs rescuing. It's not a thief named Gannondorf. Instead we see Link stuck in a love story.

Shia is a good person, but has fallen in love with Link. Shia becomes jealous of Zelda and her relationship with Link. Shia falls victim to an evil thought and her mind becomes compromised. Shia was entrusted with maintaining the balance of power in the triforce and now she stands opposite Link, with Valga and Wiz at her side.

Link is a solider in training in the Hyrulian army. Impa gives him the special privilege of wearing green armor and his task is to get past Shia and her minions in order to rescue Zelda.

Gameplay Concepts

While note much is mentioned specifically about the gameplay mechanics, we do know that Z-Targeting is going to be included in the game.

Z-Targeting was made famous in The Legend of Zelda:Ocarina of Time, and has become a main staple of the Zelda series. It's speculated that most of the game play will resemble Dynasty Warriors in that players will take on multiple enemies at once. 

Hyrule Warriors is due out for Wii U on August 14th in Japan and is planned to release sometime in 2014 for North America and Europe.

Hyrule Warriors Set For An August Release... In Japan https://www.gameskinny.com/qoou7/hyrule-warriors-set-for-an-august-release-in-japan https://www.gameskinny.com/qoou7/hyrule-warriors-set-for-an-august-release-in-japan Tue, 20 May 2014 20:14:47 -0400 onpv3rtigo1

The next game that is set in the land of Hyrule is not what you think it is.  The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Warriors is a collaboration between Nintendo and the studio that brings us the Dynasty Warriors series, Tecmo Koei.  It also has been given a scheduled release for August of this year, but for Japan.

Hyrule Warriors looks to have more in common with the Dynasty Warriors series in terms of gameplay and combat.  You will be controlling Link in hack and slash combat versus large waves of enemies. 

Link will be using traditional Zelda series weapons and equipment, like the Master Sword, bombs, Fire Rod and his trusty Hyrulian Shield.  His Spin Attack has also made it into the game intact.

Have no fears, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata stated that this is not the next installment in the Legend of Zelda series.  So those of us that may be put off by the fact that this is not a traditional Zelda title will have to wait awhile longer. 

Allow me some fears

For me, this brings up a concern that I have had since the Gamecube days.  I was very skeptical when Nintendo let Retro Studios take over the Metroid games with the release of the Prime series.  Those concerns were quickly laid to rest when I actually played Metroid Prime for the first time, however.  But my bigger issue is the fact that Nintendo seems to be doing more outsourcing of their tried and true properties to other developers instead of handling them in house like they had been doing. 

While I was growing up with the original NES and beyond I always had the impression that games like Zelda and Metroid were strictly under Nintendo's wing.  For some of us, putting our faith in other studios for our precious Nintendo titles is huge.

At this time The Legend of Zelda Hyrule Warriors will only be available on the Wii U and is only scheduled for a Japanese release.  No other territories have been confirmed. If you would like to share your thoughts on this or what you think of Nintendo outsourcing their properties, please leave us your comments.
