Hi Bill, Great idea on a Zelda X-COM-type strategy game, similar to Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. I was thinking of even taking your idea a step forward and incorporating past and present enemies from the Zelda franchise. Your team can be made up of Link, Zelda, Sheik, Impa, and maybe the 4 Champions from Breath of the Wild as well…each with their own skill set. Link with his bow and sword and possibly hookshot, Zelda with more magical powers, etc. Then, each level could move you across Hyrule, closer to Ganon’s castle. There are so many enemies from the franchise to choose from as well…Bokoblins, Lynels, ChuChus, Darknuts, Lizalfos, Moblins, Wizzrobes, Stalfos…and more!! Each area could have a mid and final boss and then lead up to a possible Ganondorf/Ganon battle at the end! I would love to see Nintendo put this into the hands of Ubisoft and see what they come up with! On the flip-side, my ideal game would be to have Square-Enix create a Zelda JRPG set in Hyrule, similar to Dragon Quest!! I just finished Dragon Quest XI and was pulled in by how good this game looked and the deep story behind each character. Love hearing everyone’s ideas–and it’s great to see Nintendo finally taking in new ideas for their IPs 🙂 Thanks, LuvMyNES
Hey Bill,Caught your last episode and you mentioned that you were looking for some Indy titles that might need some attention? Here’s one for ya – Lost in Harmony it’s a mobile port that was on sale for one dollar I was skeptical at first when I noticed it on the eshop because of the price but let me tell you it’s one of the best rhythm games( besides rock band, guitar hero,) I have played, your this kid cruising around on his skateboard avoiding obstacles and moving to the beat of the song also has a fantastic soundtrack and challenging at times.I find the best way to play is in handheld mode with headphones on. Definitely worth the $1 and some.Thank you for making great content on a consistent basis.
Wa-hoo! It’s almost time for Mario Day! Every year, people celebrate the mustached hero of the Mushroom Kingdom, Mario, on March 10, aka Mar10 Day. For this year’s celebration, Nintendo is offering a special deal on select Mario games for the Nintendo Switch system. Between Sunday, March 10, and Saturday, March 16, anyone outside the Mushroom Kingdom can purchase select Nintendo Switch systems and one of five select games starring Mario for a suggested retail price of only $329.98. That’s a savings of $30, which amounts to 50 percent off one of the games.
People that already own Nintendo Switch can still take advantage of the promotion, as they can purchase a digital download code from participating retail stores or retailer websites to redeem in Nintendo eShop for the same five Mario games for only $39.99 each. Downloaded games from Nintendo eShop live directly on the Nintendo Switch system, so it’s ideal for gamers who want all their games in one place, as there’s no need to carry around game cards.
The five Mario games featured in the promotion, which all offer fun experiences that can be enjoyed together by the whole family, are:
Super Mario Party, an uproarious party game for up to four players. Play as classic characters in a series of more than 80 fun new minigames.
Super Mario Odyssey, a massive globe-trotting 3D adventure for one to two players. Using his new ally Cappy to control objects, animals and enemies, Mario explores multiple creative Kingdoms to collect Power Moons.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the multiplayer high-speed racer. Race friends through colorful tracks using iconic characters like Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Bowser, and even Link from The Legend of Zelda series and the Inklings from Splatoon.
Mario Tennis Aces, a multiplayer sports game. Play locally or online with friends in fast-paced tennis matches across multiple modes.
“What better way to celebrate Mario Day than by playing some of the most popular Mario games on Nintendo Switch,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “This promotion is a great option for consumers who want to pick up Nintendo Switch and some hit games at a value price.”
The Nintendo Switch system + one Mario game promotion will be available in store and online at participating retailers, while the individual Mario game sale is exclusive to participating retailers that sell digital download codes.
