  • Nintendo Looking Into Selling Classic Games At Retail
    Bald Bouncer
    One of Nintendo’s key strengths over any and all other companies in the industry – after probably its first party catalog – is its legacy catalog. Nintendo has such a long and rich history of classic games, games that people have a lot of nostalgia for, games that influenced the entire industry, games that have held up amazingly well, that it is surprising the company has dropped the ball so often on leveraging it properly.

    The Virtual Console has been hit or miss (more miss...

  • Super Mario Odyssey Will Have 30-50 Moons Per Level
    Bald Bouncer
    Moons in Super Mario Odyssey will be analogous to Shines or Stars from Super Mario Sunshine or Super Mario 64. But where Sunshine and 64 usually only had a handful of those per level, Mario Odyssey will apparently go decidedly far crazier with how many Moons it stuffs per level.

    Speaking to Kinda Funny Games, a Nintendo rep on the E3 showfloor confirmed that there can be as many as 30-50 moons in a single level of Super Mario Odyssey– maybe even more. This means that levels...

  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild’s Map Over 9 Times Larger Than Skyrim’s Map

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will present players with a full fledged kingdom of Hyrule to explore in a seamless open world, for the very first time- as opposed to the hub based pseudo open design that previous Zelda games have had. Nintendo have made it a point to point out that Breath of the Wild‘s Hyrule will be massive- but just how massive will that be?

    Well, Crave Online decided to collate and analyze research into this question done by various outlets, and social media and YouTube users, including Arekkz, Eggplante and Polygon, as well as statements by Nintendo themselves. And according to that research, it appears as though The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild‘s world map will come in at a massive 360 square kilometres. For reference, Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker‘s world maps were less than a kilometre square; Skyrim‘s world map comes in at just 39 kilometres square. Grand Theft Auto V comes in 81 kilometres square, and The Witcher 3 has 146 kilometres square (and this was before the DLC). Those are all massive- but none of them come close to how massive Zelda is.

    The only game to beat Zelda out is Nintendo’s own Xenoblade Chronicles X, but even that game made the world appear somewhat smaller by allowing for faster traversal via mechs. And as for Nintendo’s previous comments that Breath of the Wild’s map will be ‘over twelve times bigger than the map in Twilight Princess,’ according to Crave, it appears as though Nintendo were accounting for dungeons and other levels in their calculations, too- which is meaningless in a calculation on overworld size comparisons.

    So… yeah, Breath of the Wild looks to be a truly enormous open world. Hopefully, Nintendo have been able to keep it varied and exciting, to keep the player engaged and not unnecessarily pad the game out. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild launches on March 3 on Nintendo Switch and Wii U.
