For this Avengers tribute poster, artist Derreck Turner put well known Nintendo characters into Avenger forms. The characters are Donkey Kong, Link, Mario, Peach, Samus, and Kirby.
The video claims to cover every single Nintendo start screen in alphabetical order. It covers them all in nearly three hours, taking the viewer on quite a trip. A small chance exists that the list may not be 100% complete, given the sheer number and volume, though we’re inclined to believe they are all there. If you have the patience, run through the three hours of start screens, or maybe just watch some random spots (like we did).
Girls of Nintendo get a new look in these illustrations by Javier Jiménez. We like the aged look of these illustrations, though we won’t be sure about all three girls covering their arms entirely in tattoos, even though it adds flavor to these illustrations. The set includes Princess Zelda, Princess Peach, and Samus.
Nintendo commissioned West Coast Customs to create life size replicas of two Mario Kart cars, to go along the December 4 launch of Mario Kart 7. Both cars are battery powered, built as replicas of the classic Mario Standard kart, with its glider attachment, and the Luigi Bumble V kart, with a rear propeller for underwater navigation. Of course, these cars won’t quite do the tricks as the ones in the game, but owning these would be pretty cool.
Nintendo is touching up the 3DS in a new limited edition version inspired by Zelda. The black Nintendo 3DS with gold trimmings will be out on November 25 and it appears will only be available for the European market. Well yes, it is a very subtle touch but one that suits the device anyway.
You know, the kind that makes your day when you see one in the morning.
At its E3 press conference, Nintendo announced its much awaited console, the Wii U. The next generation console comes with 1080p HD video quality, HDMI output, internal flash memory storage and full backwards compatibility. What is interesting is that it seems Nintendo has taken a shot at reinventing the controller as well. With the looks of a tablet, the controller has a 6.2-inch touchscreen, dual analog sticks, ABXY buttons, shoulder buttons, built in gyroscope and accelerometer and a player-facing camera and microphone. The controller itself is almost like a device you could play games on. There is no word on pricing or availability, but the Wii U will likely hit market shelves sometime in 2012.
