We saw a glimpse of the then untitled Kirby: Triple Deluxe at a previous Nintendo Direct, but this announcement gave us its name. Triple Deluxe is set for a 2014 release.

An article on Time.com describes Miyamoto's "smaller, personal projects," which include a new Star Fox title, and two new games that are exploring different uses of the Game Pad:

In one of the games, which Miyamoto called Project Giant Robot, players control sky-scraping automatons, angling the Wii U GamePad in front of a TV screen while shifting their torsos left and right or up and down to maneuver the robot's upper-body while thumbing the controller's joysticks to punch or grab — almost like a full-body game of Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots.

In another, titled Project Guard, the GamePad became a quick-jump map of a fortress manned by numbered, laser-firing security cameras. As robots encroach on different entry points, you have to tap the GamePad to leap from camera to camera, blasting enemies that trundle or come at you sprinting — even some that sneak under your radar.
The list of the world's top brands no longer includes Nintendo

For the first time since the list of the world's top brands creation, Nintendo is no longer on it.
Br> According to Destructoid:

Interbrand says Nintendo is not one of the top 100 brands in the world anymore [audible gasp from the audience]. This is the first time the Japanese developer/publisher/platform-holder has been excluded from the list since the list came about in 2001.

Interbrand justifies the snub by saying that Nintendo is not keeping up with changes in people's lives. Specifically, it points to Nintendo's unwillingness to jump into the mobile gaming scene earlier than it did. Outfits like Amazon and Facebook were cited as examples of companies that increased their brand's value by rapidly adopting new trends.

As is to be expected, Interbrand's list is topped by two juggernauts. Apple's brand was valued at an estimated $170 billion, followed by Google's $120 billion. I've heard of those two companies! The list works!



Better luck next year, I suppose.
