    Apologies for the doulbe post (again).

    Anyway, have you tried the Ninja Turtles games on 3DS? I got my boy one and he loves it! It's not as good as the Castlevania titles on DS (in MY opinion - he never got into them), but the one we have, a least, is well worth checking out... its just a pity that I can't think what it's called, though the box does have the Nickleodeon logo on it.

    I also heard that Batman: Arkham is like Castlevania so picked up a copy dirt cheap on Amazon (Ł5 cheap!)... but I've not really had the time to play it so can't confirm that.

    Wow, it worked!
    I did a couple of system updates a few weeks back so maybe it got fixed then? But thanks for that!

    The badges from the arcade still won't stay in place though, and we can't swap the icons with the corresponding badges either, which renders any reason to pay money for the arcade even more pointless than it already is.

    New NX rumors

    http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost...postcount=5735


    Ok, this is my first time posting any kind of rumor, leak, or insider information, whatever you want to call it. While I believe the info to be true, things can always change at the last minute and then I look like an asshole who lied. I have more than one source and this post will basically contain things I've heard, conversations I've had with people in the know (other insiders, devs, writers, etc). To make this easier, I think I'll do a tiered rumor ranking, where a T1 (Tier 1) means one source told me this, T2 means two, T3 means three, and T4 means at least four sources or more told me or others the same thing. So T4 rumors have multiple sources and are likely more credible than a T1, but that doesn’t necessarily mean a T1 is false. The bolded parts will be the rumor, the text after it will be additional info mixed with some of my opinion, and the sources thoughts.

    Also, while I was writing this short essay I asked my new sources about the May 9th NX reveal date, they said they'd look into it.

    Remember, I'm no journalist or english major

    T4 Rumors
    The NX will be more powerful than the PS4. "By a noticeable amount". From the CPU, to GPU, to RAM. Sources don't know the clock speeds, or memory type or amount of memory. But if the CPU is 15-30% stronger than PS4 as alluded to by LCGeek, than the GPU would need to match that bump in order to not bottleneck (Nintendo hates their bottlenecks).

    The Wii U Remasters. 100% confirmed Smash Bros 4 will come to NX, no word on if you can play with Wii U players.

    Zelda is 100% confirmed and not really big news :P

    Now here is where things get interesting. One source said 100% for sure Mario Maker was coming to NX. Another source said 50%. Why 50%? Well, they can confirm it's in development, Nintendo is struggling to transfer over player data and doesn't want all courses to be lost. Hell, courses are being mysteriously deleted on Wii U already lol.

    The fourth remaster is Splatoon. This one was given 50% chance from two sources and 99% from one source lol. The reasons again are, Nintendo is struggling to transfer all player data and make it cross-compatible with Wii U players as well. It is in development though. They should have all he DLC included.

    So, Zelda and Smash for sure, Mario Maker and Splatoon maybe. If Nintendo can't get it working they may scrap it.

    Smash is rumored for launch along with Zelda (day or window wasn’t specified). Not sure on Mario Maker or Splatoon.

    What's interesting about this is Splatoon and Mario Maker heavily use touch controls and motion controls. While I certainly expect the NX controller to use gyroscope and accelerometers (since even the DS4, Wii U gamepad, Wii remotes and 3DS use it) this may indicate that there will be a screen in the NX controller. None of my sources indicated troubled development of splatoon and mario maker were controls related, so either it has a screen controller or the second screen support hinted at by the reddit leaker in the OP was right and there will be some kind of optional screen controller or smartglass like features.

    T2 Rumors
    NDA's are tight as hell. This one is obvious. But I just wanted to add to it. While fellow posters like Rosti have indicated how heavy they are, my own sources and people I don't even know have warned me privately to watch what I post here (this was all within the last couple of hours lol). One source said they know more Nintendo hardware people than software people, yet the only leaks they've been able to get is on the software side. Not a peep from the hardware guys.

    I even had people asking what the contents of my post were going to be, if names, job positions, marketing budgets (lol) were going to be posted. A lot of people got very worried, including my sources, the fear of Nintendo is real. They are cracking down. The fake leaks aren't helping either.

    As someone who just started snooping for NX info and asking questions out of general curiosity for being a fan, I wasn't expecting this much info over the last two weeks or so. But, now that I am, I want to gain my sources respect and so I didn't want divulge their identity or even reveal their gender. I hope this post has gained their trust, and know that their ID's are safe and sound with me.

    T1 Rumors
    NX SDK's are out there right now and my sources can confirm dev's have them, so don't worry too much about when you hear stuff like nobody has a dev kit yet.
    The NX is easy to port too. This is big because Nintendo consoles have usually been hard to develop or and only mastered by Nintendo's internal teams. Apparently, some dev's are having no trouble porting current gen games over. It's a quick process and dev's seem to be happy about it.

    The NX architecture is under NDA but is highly speculated to be x86. I disagreed with them on this but they made some excellent points about how porting from ARM to x86 (handheld to console) and x86 to x86 (current PS4 and XB1 games to NX) is very easy, while it's a bit more tricky to go from x86 to ARM (console to handheld). It certainly matches what the reddit leaker posted.
    Based off my high school programming skills and some research, it seems like x86 to ARM does require more work, x86 is 64-bit and ARM is 32-bit. But any decent compiler supports 64-bit math on ARM. The dev's mainly recompile the code into ARM, and then the integer values get changed, and fix any errors that come up, recompile again, see if it works, rinse and repeat. It's not as important or inefficient as people think, especially for larger devs. Besides, ARM is heavily supported and the more worked on architecture. So don't get too focused on if it's x86 or ARM. In the end, as long as it's not shitty PowerPC (Nintendo, please, no) it'll be fine. It won't be the reason Nintendo won't get third party ports, if anything, NX sales will.

    One thing that contradicts x86, and this is an indirect source, but a coder who works specifically for Nintendo laughed off GAF's focus on x86 and how we know nothing. Please don’t go looking for them, DetectiveGAF, let them keep their job. So, that, combined with ARM likely being in the handheld, makes me believe the NX will use ARM. But like I said, at the end of the day it doesn't really matter.

    Nobody knows anything about the handheld. At least, not any of my sources or their sources. Not even sure if NX refers to the handheld as well or if that has a different codename. It's speculated that it will still get some exclusive games, but won't get many console games downported (referring to the shared games library) while the console could theoretically play them all (maybe lending support to x86 and ARM inside the NX, having the handheld guts inside, but that sounds very expensive and I doubt it). The console seems to be the main focus of Nintendo right now and the New 3DS, along with the 2016 lineup of 3DS, has afforded them that luxury.

    I hope you enjoy this post and it provides lots of healthy discussion. I told you it wasn't major news, but you got hyped anyways. It's my first time doing this and it was fun, and sorry if it took awhile but verification and clarity were important to me.

    Remember, grain of salt.

    Come at me, Nintendo.

    So, what exactly is he referring to by "handheld"?

    To me, that means a new DS (for want of a better term), but then he goes on to mention that Nintendo are focused on building up the New 3DS and the 3DS' catalogue on the whole.

    As I mentioned previously, I'm considering buying a 3DSXL and transferring all data from our 2DS across (because most of our games have come as downloads via the eshop), but if there's to be a new handheld console in the next year or two, I won't bother.

    You know might be obviously right. As with the Nomad, TurboExpress, and the portable Dreamcast. Nintendo might just focus entirely on making a handheld and just segregate DLC to each region instead. They are already doing this right now with the vicious amount of censorship on there games. The release of "Sonic" for the 3DS had so many extras and was actually more interesting compared to the WiiU version.

    And all the controllers will be wireless because there is no I/O device as Morpheus from the "Third Eye" would say.

    EMILY ROGERS: Why You Should Be Excited For The NX Output

    Emily Is THE most trustworthy source when it comes to leaks


    Why you should be excited about NX’s software output


    Instead of focusing our attention solely on hardware, we should really be having a discussion about NX’s software. Based on things I’ve heard, I am 100% confident that the NX’s software output will blow away the Wii U’s software output (which was never impressive to begin with). In a single year, the NX will build a larger library of games than Wii U produced in three or four years.

    This isn’t some hyperbolic statement. This isn’t speculation nor blind optimism. These aren’t my personal fan wishes either. Furthermore, my negative feelings toward the Wii U have zero influence on any of the information mentioned below.

    Here is what I’ve been told by my sources close to Nintendo:
    •The big fundamental focal point (and overall goal) behind NX is to vastly increase the software output from Nintendo’s first party teams and studios.
    •To accomplish this, the entire process of how Nintendo develops and produces software has gone through radical changes.
    •There is a new strategy that was put in place to create and release first party software at a faster rate.
    •Multiple unannounced Wii U projects were moved over to NX.
    •The NX could potentially see the highest output of first party software in the company’s history. (I’m talking about the entire lifespan of NX. Not just one or two years.)

    Now, there are a few things that need to be mentioned here.

    Reminder: A new process/strategy doesn’t necessarily mean that software won’t ever be delayed, or there won’t ever be gaps between releases. There is no “perfect strategy” that will prevent delays if a project requires more polish…or if a project just isn’t coming together as the company had hoped.

    Also, the company does Nintendo Directs, so it’s unknown how much software will be revealed at E3 this year. For example: Bayonetta 2 wasn’t announced until three months after E3 2012. Games like Xenoblade Chronicles X, Yoshi Wooly World, and Wind Waker HD weren’t revealed until the January 2013 Direct — two months after Wii U launched.

    So it’s possible that Nintendo may save some game announcements for later events after E3 (and after launch). I highly doubt that they will bust their entire load at E3.

    With that said, the NX definitely won’t be the shit show that we experienced on Wii U with three month droughts on a regular basis. At least not when it comes to first party software.

    OK, so after playing the games for abit, I gotta say, surprisingly I enjoy Guard more then Zero. Zero is by no means a bad game mind you, but the controls are kind of aggravating at times, meanwhile Guard is much more simplistic and addictive. Overall I am satisfied with my purchase, but was not expecting to be more entertained by Guard then Zero.


    Welp, at the very least this should tide me over in the games department till Kirby: Planet Robobot comes out in June.

    If I remember my E3 announcements correctly, Guard was a project Miyamoto was personally involved in. So I'm not surprised.

    You know, one thing I'm wondering about the NX is if it will Utilize Amiibo like the 3DS & Wii-U have? I know some people see them as a gimmick, but I think its fun to have extra little amiibo centric bonueses in games.
