Jason Clement posted a article in Industry NewsIn today's news, more NX rumors surface, SEGA teases Sonic news soon, we get some more information on Dragon Quest VII, and more! Read on below for the full scoops. New NX Rumors Surface Still no official word on what Nintendo's next platform codenamed 'NX' will be, but new rumors are circulating about the console's technical specs. A survey from GFK (a client of Nintendo) which was leaked from Liam Robertson (who has ties to Unseen64, a site about unreleased and cancelled video games) seems to add further fuel to the fire about connectivity between a handheld and console unit. Furthermore, it makes mention that video calls will be able to be made through your TV through the NX and it will support 4K/60fps video streaming and gameplay graphics at 900p/60fps. Finally, a sensor bar is also reportedly supposed to be bundled with the system; an interesting tidbit for sure, if true. As usual, take this all with a grain of salt until we get actual confirmation from Nintendo, which will hopefully come sometime before E3 (if not at the trade show itself). Source: Nintendo Inquirer SEGA teases Sonic news in February If you're a Sonic fan, good news -- you might be hearing more Sonic game news very soon. Apparently SEGA's teased an announcement of... some announcements to come in February on their Tumblr page. Might they reveal a new Sonic game or two? It's possible considering that this year is the 25th anniversary. Stay tuned... Source: Sonicthehedgehog.tumblr.com New Info on Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past Many fans have long been awaiting Dragon Quest VII remake here in the US, and yesterday brought a slew of new info on the localization. Namely, Dragon Quest VII is basically a brand new game with all new writing and no random encounters (you'll see the enemies on the map). Also being implemented are a story summary feature and Streetpass feature that will net you tablets. Keep an eye out for more Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past news leading up to its release later this Summer.

Chief among them is Toon Link, and recent information has revealed an interesting tidbit about him. Other incarnations of Link usually have a fairy speaking in behalf of him throughout the game but Toon Link will have none other than his kid sister Aryll speaking on his behalf, which should be a nice change. She'll be speaking to him through the power of the Pirate's Charm, the same item that Tetra and The King of Red Lions used to communicate with Link in The Wind Waker. You can hear her talking at the 6:10 point in the video above! Of course, you'll also be able to hear her for yourself when the game launches on March 25 in North America. Source: Zelda Informer Twilight Princess HD amiibo functionality detailed Wondering what the Wolf Link amiibo will do when used with the upcoming The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD? Well, we finally have an answer. According to this week's Famitsu magazine, using the amiibo at a certain location will allow the player to experience "Thorough Battle: Trial of the Beast." Clearing it will net you a "Bottomless Wallet," which can carry up to 9,999 rupees (the max amount, safe to say). Also, the amiibo will allow you to import data from Twilight Princess HD into the upcoming Legend of Zelda Wii U game. What the data is is currently unknown still; expect to hear more leading up to the game's release. Finally, other Zelda-related amiibo will be able to be used once a day for different effects, such as replenishing arrows, hearts, and even making enemies dish out twice as much damage (thanks, Ganondorf... I guess). Source: Nintendo Everything Knuckle Sandwich is a visually stunning, upcoming Earthbound-inspired indie RPG Who doesn't love Earthbound (am I right)? 2015 saw a slew of indie games inspired by it, such as Citizens of Earth and the ever-popular Undertale (which I hear may have won our Game of the Year 2015 honor). Anyhoo, an upcoming indie RPG from Andrew Brophy called Knuckle Sandwich looks to be inspired by the SNES classic as well. The game stars a boy who's living on his own for the first time, and gets caught up in a mystery where people are disappearing from town. No release date has been detailed just yet, but Knuckle Sandwich will be coming to PC at some point. Be sure to check out the game's trailer above. Source: Polygon What news stood out to you today? Do you think the new NX rumors have any merit? And will SEGA announce something exciting for Sonic?
And so it goes. The first Nintendo Direct since E3, and since the passing of Mr. Iwata, took place just hours ago. In summation, I“d call it everything the people disappointed by Nintendo“s E3 Direct could have hoped for, plus a few unexpected twists. A majority of the presentation covered games announced during E3, but gave them concrete release dates...plus a little extra flare, in some cases. The presentation began with The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD being announced officially. It has a release date of March 4th, 2016 and comes bundled with--wait for it--a Midna & Wolf Link amiibo. This amiibo isn“t the only one compatible with the game (all the Smash Bros. Zelda characters seem to be), but Reggie mentioned that the Wolf Link amiibo“s data will somehow be transferrable to The Legend of Zelda for Wii U, which is still planned for 2016 and got a bit of new footage featuring a cloaked Link on Epona. In the realm of new things coming to already announced games: PokkÃ©n Tournament is still confirmed for Spring 2016, but they had new information to share. There“s a Shadow Mewtwo amiibo card that will come with first-run editions of the game. It“s gonna be full retail price at $59.99 here in the states. Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam is coming on January 22nd, 2016. Hyrule Warriors: Legends with newly announced character â€œLinkleâ€ (the long-rumored girl Link) is coming on March 25th, 2016. Star Fox Zero is coming April 22nd, 2016. There“s three important release dates for games you saw at E3. I“ll give some others a little special attention: Fire Emblem: Fates has a bit of an explanation to it. As it was in Japan, there are two versions of the game: Conquest and Birthright. You can purchase one at regular retail price, then the other digitally for only $19.99 when you“re ready to experience it. There“s also a third dubbed Revelations which will be available in the near future. For Fire Emblem fans, a special edition will be available that includes all three games, an artbook and a cool 3DS XL pouch for $79.99. It's coming on February 19th, 2016. New content is coming to both Splatoon and Tri Force Heroes. Splatoon“s new bits include over 40 pieces of new gear coming first--today, at 5 PM PT, 8 PM ET. Tomorrow at 6 PM PT, there“s a new stage coming called Museum d“Alfonsino. Even more stages and features will be added in future updates through January. A Nintendo Treehouse Splatoon Tournament will happen in December, too. Tri Force Heroes“ big update is coming on December 2nd, and adds Linebeck“s Uniform and Fierce Deity Armor outfits. The first outfit allows you to see items in chests before you open them. The second makes you even more powerful than you were before, with four beams that shoot from your sword. Also new to the update is the Den of Trials, with 30+ stages. The update will also make it easier to get Friendly Tokens, and easily blacklist players who leave during online gameplay. Oh, right. In December, a new Web portal will offer â€œa more robust search function to find and filter levels in Super Mario Makerâ€. Okay. Okay. I hope you were ready for something awesome there. Both 3DS Dragon Quest remakes are officially confirmed for North America and Europe, coming in 2016. That“s right--Fragments of the Forgotten Past and Journey of the Cursed King are a thing outside of Japan! I can“t believe it either. I always held out hope, but I never really expected it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZABoeaMm9KM Speaking of things I never would have expected...and returning to PokÃ©mon briefly: The original Red, Blue and Yellow versions are coming to the 3DS Virtual Console on February 27th, 2016. Everything about the originals will be preserved, except: you“ll be able to trade PokÃ©mon using the 3DS“s infrared communication. Nice! If old classics aren't enough for you, PokÃ©mon Picross is a new free-to-play venture coming in early December. Here's a trailer for that, too. The amiibo figures for Lucas from Smash, and several Animal Crossing series amiibos like Resetti and Blathers are coming on January 22nd, 2016. That“s also when you“ll be able to purchase Series 2 of the Animal Crossing amiibo cards. The end of the presentation had an indie sizzle reel and the kinds of stuff Direct Faithful have come to expect. But here“s the grand finale: Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy VII is confirmed DLC for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS & Wii U. I“m not the biggest fan of VII these days, but my inner-child most definitely was brought out in full force when the Smash cut began with the Final Fantasy VII opening music. Wow. By the way, a Special Smash Bros presentation is happening in December, so look forward to that...which will probably house a release date for Cloud, and more. Here“s the full Direct.
