It’s been a long weekend over here at Nintendo Charged and for me personally, but I’m finally back after a few days of absence on the site. Today we’re gonna talk about a lot of things like Pokéballs, Master Swords, Mega Mushrooms, tag teams, monster hunting, and controlling a puddle of water, so get ready for my latest blog post. -Greg Boe (admin)
First things first. The highly anticipated Pokémon Black and White 2 is already out in North America, and Nintendo Power has already reviewed the game. The magazine gave the game an 8.0, saying that “these are superior versions of already great games, but they don’t offer a different enough experience to justify the two in their titles.” If you want our opinion on the game, stay tuned for our review in the coming weeks. Our newest editor, Logan Horth, has also picked up the game, so you can also stay tuned for his thoughts on the game!
Next, the Wii U has been known about for quite a while, but there’s still no word yet on what The Legend of Zelda will look like for Wii U. If you ask me, I’d love to see a sequel to Twilight Princess, but also, something entirely new would be awesome to release for a new system. I just hope that Nintendo just releases a new game or a remake soon, because after playing through Skyward Sword and beating Ocarina of Time 3D for the twentieth time, I’ve begun to crave a new adventure! I get really impatient though, so I may be the only one.
2012 is pretty big for the Mario series. We first got Mario Tennis Open on 3DS, and now we have New Super Mario Bros. 2 on the system. Next month, on November 18th, the Wii U is getting New Super Mario Bros. U on launch day. With all these great games in one year, I’m pretty sure that any Mario fan will be satisfied! If these three great games aren’t enough for you, Paper Mario: Sticker Star is sure to do the trick. This game is hitting North America next month, and in December for Europe, so mark your calendars if you’re a fan of Nintendo’s mustachioed hero!
If you plan on picking up a Wii U, and love beating the living crap outta your opponents, check out Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Wii U Edition, which is also hitting Wii U at launch in the West. This game adds to the already awesome gameplay of the previously released versions on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 with all the DLC, and even some awesome costumes from famous franchises like Super Mario and The Legend of Zelda. Some of my favorites include Mario, Link, Zelda, Zero Suit Samus, and Sheik. If you want to hear more about this absolutely stunning fighter, be sure to read our recent preview, which can be found at this link.
Are you the monster hunting type? Well, you should know that Capcom’s Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is on its way to Wii U and 3DS early next year. This will be the very first cross-platform play game on both systems, and will help connect both handheld and home gaming systems once again. If you have played Monster Hunter Tri on Wii, then you won’t have too much more with this game other than its new online and enhanced features. If you have any questions on this game, feel free to ask away in the comments!
You may have thought of a puddle of water as lifeless and bland, but Nintendo has managed to make a best-selling WiiWare title out of it! Fans loved Fluidity so much, that Nintendo has decided it was time to bring a sequel to the Nintendo 3DS eShop, which has added even more power to the liquid hero, and will be landing in North America this December. If you want to see if Fluidity: Spin Cycle is as great as it’s predecessor was, you’ll just have to wait until our review in two months!
