Nintendo won't release mobile versions of their games, but we do get an official application for Mario Kart that will let you share gameplay footage and screenshots, and access rankings:
Our policy is to establish consumer relationships based on accounts named Nintendo Network IDs, which are abbreviated as NNIDs," Iwata said. "This 'Mario Kart TV' (temp.) web service is available even for players without NNIDs, but by logging into the service with an NNID, they will be able to easily find their rankings, videos that their friends have shared, videos of tournaments in which they have participated, and it will be convenient to access this service through smart devices even when they are not at home.
Splatoon isn't even out yet, and it's already becoming infamous. Players in the Global Testfire over the weekend found out just how brutal the multiplayer can be, specifically the game's paint roller weapon:
But what's the single player campaign like? Early looks suggest it's more robust than I expected. Players traverse through unique levels and face different challenges like using ink geysers and navigating moving platforms. The structure of the single player levels is being compared to Mario Galaxy, at least in terms of layout.
Boss battles match what you'd expect from a Nintendo game, and look like they put the game's core mechanic, ink, into play beautifully.
Have you played any of Splatoon yet? Are you excited for the game?
