Nintendo Reveals New Details About Ink-tastic, Squid-tacular Splatoon

Splatoon Box Art

​Splatoon, Nintendo’s upcoming third-person action shooter game for the Wii U console, combines elements of shooting, strategy and action – and original new characters, Inklings, that can instantaneously transform between human and squid form. Splatoon gives players the goal of covering as much territory as possible with their ink-spewing weapons. The game, which is scheduled to launch in May, features four-on-four online team matches, as well as a full single-player mode that takes players deeper into the game’s unique world and characters.

The game’s main online mode is Turf War, in which players with broadband Internet access can compete head-to-head in four-on-four teams to try to cover as much territory as possible in their team’s ink. As they do battle, players will gain levels and earn in-game currency that allows them to customize their Inkling. Players can equip different pieces of clothing, which each provide different game-play perks like swimming more quickly through ink or decreasing the time needed for them to refill their ink canister. Players can also equip pre-determined weapon sets consisting of main weapons like rapid-fire ink guns, long-range ink rifles and paint rollers, as well as sub-weapons like ink bombs or sprinklers. Players can also fill up their special gauge in battle to unleash powerful special weapons for a brief period of time. Players will battle in a variety of online multiplayer maps, including the newly announced Blackbelly Skatepark, Saltspray Rig and Walleye Warehouse.

For the first time, Nintendo also revealed a new multiplayer mode called Ranked Battle, which keeps track of each player’s online ranking. Splat Zones is one of the additional ways to play online in this mode. As opposed to Turf War, which will be available to all players as soon as they begin playing Splatoon, Splat Zones lets players try to control the territory of specific areas of the map with their ink blasts. As they play these ranked modes online, they will have the opportunity to increase their rating from “C-” to “A+,” which will be dynamically updated based on their performance. Players will need to achieve an in-game online Level of 10 by leveling up their Inkling in Turf War online matches before gaining access to these additional modes. As a result, once the game launches in May, Nintendo will track the global progress of players as they gain levels, and once a critical mass of players has achieved Level 10, this additional mode will be unlocked for players who meet the ranking criteria.

The single-player mode in Splatoon lets players use the game’s mechanics to explore the underground base of the game’s army of octopi antagonists, the Octarians, in original stages that test their ability to shoot, jump and splatter ink. Players can tackle a variety of levels with a variety of clever devices that can only be found in single-player mode. Each of the game’s single-player stages are designed to let players master tips and techniques that can be directly applied to the game’s multiplayer modes.

CRASH THE BIGGEST PARTY WITH BAD GUY BOWSER IN MARIO PARTY 10 FOR WII U

Join the amiibo Party with a New Set of amiibo That Includes a New Toad Figure

Mario Party 10 for Wii U Box Art

​REDMOND, Wash., March 18, 2015 – On March 20, you are invited to the biggest and baddest bash of the year: Mario Party 10 for Wii U! In addition to a power-packed lineup of new features, new boards and new mini-games, new revelers join the Mario Party fun in the game’s ground-breaking Bowser Party and amiibo Party modes. When bad guy Bowser crashes the party to playfully torment up to four additional players on Team Mario, the franchise’s social experience takes an unprecedented and deviously good turn. In amiibo Party mode, which requires at least one compatible amiibo figure to access, you and up to three other players can tap amiibo to the Wii U GamePad controller to play with and customize your amiibo, and change a portion of the board to match your character.

To add more fun to the Mario Party 10 game, a new set of amiibo called the Super Mario series will also launch simultaneously on March 20. The Super Mario series features the amiibo debut of Toad, as well as new designs for Mario, Luigi, Bowser, Princess Peach and Yoshi. The new “Super Mario series” Mario amiibo design will be available exclusively in a Mario Party 10 bundle that also launches on March 20 at a suggested retail price of $59.99. The other amiibo figures will be sold separately at a suggested retail price of $12.99 each.

“Mario Party 10 is one party you definitely don’t want to miss,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Brimming with innovative ways to play and featuring creative GamePad and amiibo support, Mario Party 10 delivers hours of family-friendly fun exclusively for Wii U.”

For the first time in the Mario Party series, you can pick up the GamePad and have a fiery blast stepping into the trouble-making role of everyone’s favorite bad guy: Bowser. You and up to four other players can participate in this wild new mode, with four players joining Team Mario using Wii Remote controllers (sold separately) and one playing as Bowser using the GamePad. As Bowser, your goal is simple: Prevent Team Mario from stealing the Star at the end of the board. Trying to succeed is the fun part! By playing a series of mini-games exclusive to this mode, Bowser can spit fire, spin an electric wheel, shoot Bullet Bills and cause general mayhem. The welcome role reversal adds a new layer of fun and friendly competition to the Mario Party series.

Mario Party 10 for Wii U!

In the traditional Mario Party mode, up to four players travel together around a variety of colorful and detailed boards like Mushroom Park, Haunted Trail and the high-flying Airship Central. Although you are traveling with friends, every player is still out for him- or herself, since whoever collects the most Mini Stars at the end of the board wins! Earn these coveted Mini Stars by winning a variety of multiplayer mini-games or by participating in events around the board. The easy-to-learn and highly entertaining mini-games break up the game play by letting you and your friends compete to race up a tower, dodge angry bees or quickly pump up a balloon. You can even team up in “2 vs. 2” or “1 vs. 3” games, or even battle bosses as a group.

Even after playing with amiibo in amiibo Party mode, crashing the party as Bowser or tackling the dizzying number of mini-games in classic Mario Party mode, Mario Party 10 still offers more things to do. In Toad’s Room, you can pose your characters in a Photo Studio and shop for new characters and vehicles to use in the game. In Bonus Games mode, challenge yourself to a series of Bowser Jr. Challenges and even experience the jewel-matching fun of Jewel Drop.

aniibos in Mario Party 10 for Wii U!

NINTENDO AND DENA FORM BUSINESS AND CAPITAL ALLIANCE

Nintendo and DeNA Form Business and Capital Alliance

Companies to develop new game apps featuring Nintendo IP for smart devices

TOKYO, JAPAN – March 17, 2015 – Nintendo Co., Ltd. (Tokyo: 7974) and DeNA Co., Ltd. (Tokyo: 2432) today entered into a business and capital alliance to develop and operate new game apps for smart devices and build a new multi-device membership service for consumers worldwide.

Read more about this alliance here (nintendo.co.jp).

Leveraging the strength of Nintendo’s intellectual property (IP) and game development skills in combination with DeNA’s world-class expertise in mobile games, both companies will develop and operate new game apps based on Nintendo’s IP, including its iconic game characters, for smart devices. The alliance is intended to complement Nintendo’s dedicated video game systems business and extend Nintendo’s reach into the vast market of smart device users worldwide.

Under the alliance, DeNA will also be able to strengthen its gaming business at a global scale by leveraging Nintendo’s IP. To ensure the quality of game experience that consumers expect from this alliance of Nintendo and DeNA, only new original games optimized for smart device functionality will be created, rather than porting games created specifically for the Wii U home console or the Nintendo 3DS portable system.

Nintendo and DeNA Form Business and Capital Alliance: Nintendo IP

In order to create completely new game experiences for smart devices, all Nintendo IP will be eligible for development and exploration by the alliance. As these consumers enjoy the unique kind of gameplay found only with Nintendo, they will have the opportunity to explore even more premium experiences on Nintendo’s dedicated video game platforms.

Information on upcoming games and availability will be forthcoming.

Nintendo and DeNA also plan to develop an online membership service that is accessible from smart devices, PC and Nintendo systems, such as the Nintendo 3DS portable system and the Wii U home console. The membership service, which is targeted to launch in the fall of 2015, will be built on DeNA’s extensive experience and capabilities in online membership services.

As part of the long-term relationship and commitment by each company, Nintendo and DeNA have also agreed to form a capital alliance. Under the capital alliance, Nintendo will acquire 15,081,000 of DeNA’s treasury shares, which corresponds to 10.00 percent of its total outstanding stock, for a total of approximately 22 billion yen. DeNA will simultaneously acquire 1,759,400 of Nintendo’s treasury shares, which corresponds to 1.24 percent of its outstanding stock, for a total of approximately 22 billion yen. The payment is due April 2, 2015.

ZaciSa’s Last Stand


ZaciSa’s Last Stand is 50 percent off (reduced from $1.99 to $0.99) until 8:59 a.m. PT on April 2.

Can you survive?

ZaciSa's Last Stand is a simple, yet challenging, 2D tower defense game set in space.

The main concept is that you have to defend your base from an onslaught of enemy ships that seek to destroy you and your way of life.

To do this, you will deploy different Bot weapons, such as a Sentry or Bomber to destroy them before they get to your base.

The game will start out easy enough, at least in theory, with only something small, like twenty weak enemies. Every level you survive will result in more enemies with increasing strength.

You gain points and money for every ship you destroy, as well as a nice bonus at the end of each round.

You use this money to not only build more Bots, but also different kind of upgrades. Featuring multiple maps to test your different strategies.

Can you survive the slaughter?
