KoopaTV's Nintendo Direct January 14, 2015 Live Reactions

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - We rated it Splatoon/10.

It is the first Nintendo Direct of 2015, and also the first KoopaTV Reaction Log of 2015, as well. For those who haven't joined us for one of these before, KoopaTV periodically live-reacts to important events within our [Koopa Keep] AIM Blast chat room, such as every Nintendo Direct. You are invited to watch the event and read our comments as the event happens! (Time-stamps are provided to assist you, of course.)

I'm Nintendork 13 13, by the way. Rawk is himself. That's all you get.

There is also this Bandai Namco dude who wears sunglasses indoors. Guess it is pretty bright outside.

    K.
    I had a dream last night that Don West got abducted by ISIS.
    And beheaded on live television.

 Nintendork 13 13 8:52 am
    ........

 RawkHawk2010 8:52 am
    And his last words were, well...you can guess.

 Nintendork 13 13 8:52 am
    The quote in the video description?

 RawkHawk2010 8:53 am
    And me, and you, and T.O.M. were watching watching on a SDTV from what appeared to be a janitor's closet.
    yea
    You were a Mii.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MhgAdpgWMEE
    why are we not watching here

 Nintendork 13 13 8:58 am
    What difference does it make
    No Twitch logo?

 RawkHawk2010 8:58 am
    bigger screen
    no comments

 Nintendork 13 13 8:59 am
    I remember when they used to have comments on their YouTube stream.

 RawkHawk2010 8:59 am
    which one are we using
    nEED TO KNOW

 Nintendork 13 13 8:59 am

    First Direct of 2015.

 RawkHawk2010 9:00 am
    The hell is this noise

 Nintendork 13 13 9:00 am
    Only 12,000 dudes watching.
    qor ia rgia
    Odama 2?
    *wot is this

 RawkHawk2010 9:00 am
    zelda

 Nintendork 13 13 9:00 am
    Fire Emblem Wii U?
    ....well
    not with that thing
    whodat
    oh shit

 RawkHawk2010 9:01 am
    this is FE

 Nintendork 13 13 9:01 am
    That wasn't Wii U.

 RawkHawk2010 9:01 am
    awakening 2

 Nintendork 13 13 9:01 am
    .......
    um
    ...
    So is Fire Emblem not coming to consoles ever again?

 RawkHawk2010 9:01 am
    I've seen some of these characters before.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:02 am
    It's a sequel to Awakening, actually?
    "THE LATEST IN THE FIRE EMBLEM SERIES"
    (wot about FE vs. SMT)

 RawkHawk2010 9:02 am
    They should just leave that as the title.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:02 am
    It's literally called
    "The Latest in the Fire Emblem series"
    Developed by Intelligent Systems
    Wait

 RawkHawk2010 9:02 am
    Those characters weren't the same but some might be descendants.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:02 am
    ...do people have feet in this game?

 RawkHawk2010 9:02 am
    Or maybe this artist just lacks variety.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:02 am
    Story by Shin Kibayashi
    "a well-known comic book writer"
    "make bigger choices"

 RawkHawk2010 9:03 am
    Did Iwata have a stroke?
    The left side of his face is twitching.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:03 am
    "the effect of the choices in the world will be bigger"

 RawkHawk2010 9:03 am
    I like the music.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:03 am
    Puzzle game
    is it Puzzle & Dragon

 RawkHawk2010 9:03 am
    Yup.
    Ten minutes on this shit.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:03 am
    oh dear >.<

 RawkHawk2010 9:04 am
    DUEL DISK

 Nintendork 13 13 9:04 am
    Puzzle & Dragons Z
    WAIT
    I MENTIONED THIS
    This is that game people in America kept begging for.
    In my research on the series.
    Because it was abandoned in Japan.
    Okay now there is the SMB edition.

 RawkHawk2010 9:04 am
    aren't they going to cannabalize the market by releasing both of these

 Nintendork 13 13 9:04 am
    "traverse levels in traditional Mari0 fashion"
    So moving on an overworld map is traditional fashion?
    I traversing thr-..
    nope
    COMPILATION
    Well

 RawkHawk2010 9:05 am
    uh
    well okay

 Nintendork 13 13 9:05 am
    guess that invalidates my entire article.
    COMPILATION of the two May 2015.
    The SMB edition just seems so much
    um
    worse than the Z thing.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:06 am
    oh boy can't wait to play as a fucking Goomba

 RawkHawk2010 9:06 am
    Yeah.
    What a strong note to end on.
    "EVEN...A GOOMBA."

 Nintendork 13 13 9:06 am
    Thought he said Sapphire
    It's Pokémon Shuffle
    wot happened to Trozei

 RawkHawk2010 9:06 am
    isn't this trozei
    exactly

 Nintendork 13 13 9:07 am
    So I guess this is Nintendo's puzzle block.

 RawkHawk2010 9:07 am
    "yup. ten minutes on this shit."
    ...we're getting there.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:08 am
    oh
    uh
    Did he say
    yeah
    This is free2play

 Nintendork 13 13 9:08 am
    with microtransactions
    ew
    Available on the eShop in February
    "Let's move on to Wii U"
    Please don't make a puzzle game
    out of the Wii U menu

 RawkHawk2010 9:08 am
    I don't like these new Direct sound effects.
    For transitions.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:09 am
    Wait wait wait this is important.
    Something about Wii Mode directly without going to
    uh
    Wii mode.
    ...or maybe not.
    I think they're offering Wii games on the eShop?
    oooh Punch-Out!! ^.^
    Available January 22

 RawkHawk2010 9:10 am
    ...yeah have fun buying it again.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:10 am
    I'm not buying these again <.<
    BUT I WILL RECOMMEND PEOPLE GET PUNCH0OUT!! WII
    Here's Trinen.

 RawkHawk2010 9:10 am
    I'd rather have Galaxy than Galaxy 2.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:10 am
    "Let's get things ROLLING with Kirby and the Rainbow Curse."

 RawkHawk2010 9:10 am
    Kirby's Palestine Panic

 Nintendork 13 13 9:11 am
    Dem figurines.

 RawkHawk2010 9:11 am
    that segueway was terrible.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:11 am
    "Lighting effect added"

 RawkHawk2010 9:12 am
    whoa
    February 20th
    my birthday

 Nintendork 13 13 9:12 am

    Lucina
    Pac-Man
    Ness
    Charizard
    Wario
    ....eh.
    woaaah
    ...ew.
    Mari0 series amiibo
    as opposed to Smash amiibo
    Toad amiibo

 RawkHawk2010 9:13 am
    I thought they were gonna keep that blurred.
    "Mario Party 10"

 Nintendork 13 13 9:13 am
    Apparently Mari0 series Mari0 amiibo is interchangeable with the Smash Bros. series Mari0 amiibo.

 RawkHawk2010 9:13 am
    what the fuck is this

 Nintendork 13 13 9:13 am
    There is going to be a Donkey Kong one
    This looks pretty
    uh
    hideous

 RawkHawk2010 9:14 am
    what does this even have to do with amiibo

 Nintendork 13 13 9:14 am
    The play tokens are amiibo

 RawkHawk2010 9:14 am
    but

 Nintendork 13 13 9:14 am
    wtf Rosalina and Luma

 RawkHawk2010 9:14 am
    Does it track stats?

 Nintendork 13 13 9:14 am
    yes

 RawkHawk2010 9:14 am
    Well ok-
    WHAT
    LOL

 Nintendork 13 13 9:14 am
    Because it erases the Smash Bros. one
    So obviously it's tracking SOMETHING.

 RawkHawk2010 9:15 am
    Good way to sell more Amiibos I guess.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:15 am
    "when you tap the Toad amiibo" the game turns Japanese
    AHH
    SPLATOON MUSIC
    ^.^
    Best music by far of the Direct.
    Already announced 4 vs. 4 mode and single-player mode
    now telling us about a central hub.
    Inklings sent by Miiverse in the hub.
    So it's like Nintendo Land.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:16 am
    Each Inkling has clothes and weapons
    purchased with in-game money.
    Sad time in the game industry where you gotta specify that.
    :-(

 RawkHawk2010 9:16 am
    Yeah.
    This looks awesome.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:16 am
    AHH
    EYEPATCH ACCESSORY

 RawkHawk2010 9:17 am
    This reminds me of Conker: Live & Reloaded.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:17 am
    So you can buy clothes and stuff like Pokémon X or any other game ever that does that
    Main Weapons, Sub Weapons, Special weapons
    "If you want you can focus on your looks rather than your strategy"
    Splatoon available
    this May.
    Here is
    uh
    Majora's Mask inf-... nevermind

 RawkHawk2010 9:18 am

 Nintendork 13 13 9:18 am
    Tingle is DLC for Hyrule Warriors
    yay

 Nintendork 13 13 9:18 am
    ...okay that's creepy.

 RawkHawk2010 9:18 am
    we're not even halfway in lol

 Nintendork 13 13 9:18 am
    Tingle kisses dudes.
    Majora's Mask Pack for Hyrule Warriors with Young Link and Tingle.
    IS TINGLE GONNA BE PLAYABLE IN SMASH 5
    Xenoblade Chronicles X trailer.

 RawkHawk2010 9:19 am
    I forgot this game existed.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:19 am
    Just so I can say it now
    ...I forgot Code Name S.T.E.A.M existed.

 RawkHawk2010 9:20 am
    Feel like this is gonna have TP Hyrule Field syndrome.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:20 am
    Oh
    yeah
    Most of this trailer is dudes running.
    buut

 RawkHawk2010 9:20 am
    Music is good at least.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:21 am
    I'm pretty sure they just wanna show the environment variety.

 RawkHawk2010 9:21 am
    THAT'S ALL THEY'VE DONE THOUGH
    They showed off combat once and it looked crap.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:21 am
    MAYBE THAT'S ALL THEY'VE WORKED ON
    uh
    ???
    I don't remember this

 RawkHawk2010 9:21 am
    ..............
    I don't either.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:21 am
    "We announced a game at E3: Mari0 vs. Donkey Kong Tipping Stars"

 RawkHawk2010 9:21 am
    I remember a Mario vs. DK tech demo.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:21 am
    ??????
    "all new tipping system"

 RawkHawk2010 9:22 am
    But they didn't fucking announce anything.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:22 am
    Tip 5%?
    ...oh hey that's actually what it is
    You tip level creators for making good levels.
    <.<

 Nintendork 13 13 9:22 am
    Out on Wii U and 3DS
    buy one and get a download code for the other system
    March 5
    well
    DIDN'T KNOW THAT EXISTED.
    Here is a badass Namco dude
    Or maybe he's just wearing sunglasses.
    ...except he's indoors.

 RawkHawk2010 9:23 am
    It's that guy who everyone thought died when he stayed home from work for a week.
    without telling anyone.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:23 am
    Project Treasure
    exclusive to Wii U
    coming soon?

 RawkHawk2010 9:24 am
    bondai namco

 Nintendork 13 13 9:24 am
    Elliot Quest
    shoot up Californian universities

 RawkHawk2010 9:24 am
    XD

 Nintendork 13 13 9:24 am
    So they had that Namco thing
    and the rest of their development partners are indies?

 RawkHawk2010 9:25 am
    this doesn't look meditative.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:25 am
    Citizens of Earth
    looks like
    uh
    Earthbound.

 RawkHawk2010 9:25 am
    Yeah.
    That's what it's inspired by.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:25 am
    From Atlus.
    On both Wii U and 3DS.

 RawkHawk2010 9:26 am
    major cain

 Nintendork 13 13 9:26 am
    SEGA 3D Classics
    awful beeps start playing

 Nintendork 13 13 9:27 am
    Okay here's Etrian Mystery Dungeon
    It's a roguelike of Etrian Odyssey.
    (I wonder if it's better than PMD3)

 RawkHawk2010 9:27 am
    what the hell even is this?

 Nintendork 13 13 9:27 am
    uh
    A Harvest Moon spin-off.
    Story of Seasons
    "We got Reggie coming up next"

 RawkHawk2010 9:28 am
    special announcement
    must be Diddy Kong Racing Wii U!

 Nintendork 13 13 9:28 am
    Fossil Fighters Frontier

 RawkHawk2010 9:28 am
    Dude.
    I want this.
    I've always been interested in Fossil Fighters.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:28 am
    Well why didn't you ever get it on DS?

 RawkHawk2010 9:29 am
    Same reason I didn't get a lot of things.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:29 am
    "Alright."

 RawkHawk2010 9:29 am
    :o

 Nintendork 13 13 9:29 am
    Here's Reggie
    he looks pink
    Talking about 3DS history.
    "Our plans for the future of Nintendo 3DS in the Americas."
    "many new games"
    "New Nintendo 3DS"
    Actually stylised as lowercase.
    So "new Nintendo 3DS"
    So I have to call this the "new 3DS"?
    And expect people to know what I'm talking about?
    I can't even capitalise it?

 RawkHawk2010 9:31 am
    I have trouble believing the face-tracking will actually work.
    And yes.
    I GUESS SO.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:31 am
    February 13

 RawkHawk2010 9:31 am
    That ad was horrible.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:31 am
    new Nintendo 3DS XL on Feb 13
    uh
    wot about the non-XL one

 RawkHawk2010 9:31 am
    We don't get that.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:31 am
    ...
    Really?

 RawkHawk2010 9:31 am
    yes.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:31 am
    ...oh.

 RawkHawk2010 9:32 am
    Americans' hands are too small for that thing.
    Glad they relocated the volume slider.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:32 am
    I wonder if the face-tracking camera...
    ...Is gonna pull a Kinect
    and stalk you

 RawkHawk2010 9:33 am
    rofl

 Nintendork 13 13 9:33 am
    and send that information to Nintendo.

 RawkHawk2010 9:33 am
    write an article about that.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:33 am
    ...hm. >.>
    Can you custom control the c-stick in Smash 3DS?

 RawkHawk2010 9:34 am
    previously released circle pad pro games
    yeah

 Nintendork 13 13 9:34 am
    I guess they'll have to make another patch for Smash 3DS.

 RawkHawk2010 9:34 am
    all four of them

 Nintendork 13 13 9:34 am
    "Hidden beneath the touch screen..."
    ...Is NFC.

 RawkHawk2010 9:34 am
    oh

 Nintendork 13 13 9:34 am
    (I thought he'd say the battery.)

 RawkHawk2010 9:35 am
    I thought they were talking about the Home button.

 RawkHawk2010 9:35 am
    NO
    NOOOOOOOOOO

 Nintendork 13 13 9:35 am
    wot

 RawkHawk2010 9:35 am
    HORRIBLE.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:35 am
    you hate the brightness thing?

 RawkHawk2010 9:35 am
    auto-changing lighting.
    phones do that.
    It's horrible.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:36 am
    3DS supposedly has an option for that
    not sure if it actually works.
    I feel like it'll be optional.
    Available red and grey
    Doesn't include AC adapter
    But you can use an existing one or buy one individually.

 RawkHawk2010 9:36 am
    Because it leads to the lighting changing even if it's just your face blocking the camera.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:37 am
    (So they don't intend for new customers to buy these?)
    Oh it's that game I keep forgetting about

 Nintendork 13 13 9:37 am
    S.T.E.A.M
    .
    what the fuck
    Marth amiibp
    Ike amiibo
    Fire Emblem amiibo are compatible with S.T.E.A.M.???

 RawkHawk2010 9:38 am
    "They won't interfere with your enjoyment of the storyline."
    what an insult

 Nintendork 13 13 9:38 am
    If the character dies in a battle
    they won't come back.
    Lucina there.
    uh
    I thought it was Ragnell
    like
    rags
    not
    uh

 RawkHawk2010 9:39 am
    who was that giant bald guy behind Marth?

 Nintendork 13 13 9:39 am
    raegnell

 RawkHawk2010 9:39 am
    When he attacked?

 Nintendork 13 13 9:39 am
    "We're planning on bringing [more Marth amiibo] to the 3DS later this year."

 Nintendork 13 13 9:39 am
    I dunno
    A S.T.E.A.M. character?

 RawkHawk2010 9:40 am
    I thought this was Star Fox.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:40 am
    Trinen didn't even take a breath between S.T.E.A.M. and Ace Combat

 RawkHawk2010 9:40 am
    Yeah, ahahahaha.
    That Bowser plane looked badass.
    "remake"

 Nintendork 13 13 9:40 am
    Oh hey it's Shulk.

 RawkHawk2010 9:41 am
    ...............

 Nintendork 13 13 9:41 am
    Tasked Monster Games to port Xenoblade.
    baaaam
    That's Monster's new role.

 RawkHawk2010 9:41 am
    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

 Nintendork 13 13 9:41 am
    Haahaha

 RawkHawk2010 9:41 am
    FUCK

 Nintendork 13 13 9:41 am
    Porting Wii games to 3DS.
    There goes all your theories.
    Apparently because
    uh

 Nintendork 13 13 9:41 am
    wot's their face
    NIS?
    can't  do it.
    oh um there's some IronFall Invasion thing
    with guns and shooting
    *NST (not NIS)
    Monster Hunter 4 New Nintendo 3DS XL
    SEE
    THE SUB-TITLE
    CAPITALISES THE N
    IN NEW
    SO I CAN WRITE IT CAPITALISED.

 RawkHawk2010 9:43 am
    Say "NEW Nintendo 3DS."

 RawkHawk2010 9:43 am
    That's how NSiders typed "NEW Super Mario Bros."

 Nintendork 13 13 9:43 am
    But that's not wot the sub-title says
    :-(

 RawkHawk2010 9:44 am
    who cares it's funnier.
    cuz it looks like you're yelling.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:44 am
    Oh they said they're having a demo.
    And the demo will be for beginners
    as opposed to
    uh
    MH3's demo
    which was NOT for beginners.
    And made us think the series if shit.

 RawkHawk2010 9:44 am
    This is gonna end with a Mewtwo trailer.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:44 am
    *is
    2 minutes left.
    Finish with a title we announced
    Majora's Mask 3D
    (not Mewtwo)

 RawkHawk2010 9:45 am
    uuuuuuuuuuuuughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
    Yeah, great fucking end.

    What the fuck?

 Nintendork 13 13 9:46 am
    ...you get a Majora's Mask pin?

 RawkHawk2010 9:46 am
    ...what sense does that make?
    Sounds like something Capcom would do.

    "Introducing New Nintendo 3DS XL Majora's Mask Edition"
    "Thanks for watching."

 RawkHawk2010 9:46 am
    uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

 Nintendork 13 13 9:46 am
    I'm laughing
    at how absurd that is.

 RawkHawk2010 9:47 am
    Literally ended with "you can now properly control the camera!"

 RawkHawk2010 9:47 am
    And holding a Majora's Mask pin hostage if you buy a totally unrelated game.
    Japanese Direct apparently ended with a new Rhythm Heaven.
    Guess we're not getting it. \
    Oh well.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:49 am
    ...that's a damn better ending than wot we got.
    Yo, let's talk about that Tipping Stars thing.
    Since apparently they announced that at E3.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:49 am
    Not once has the phrase Tipping Stars been used on KoopaTV.
    And I'm PRETTY SURE WE COVERED IT EXTENSIVELY.

 RawkHawk2010 9:51 am
    Not only was it not used.
    They didn't "announce" it with any kind of title whatsoever.
    It was just...on the show floor.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:51 am
    Uh...

 Nintendork 13 13 9:52 am
    .......Yeah.
    I guess.
    Well I guess Nintendo Software Technology has to do something.
    They're apparently too incompetent to do other things.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:54 am
    ...Splatoon was still the best thing they showed.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:54 am
    For multiple Directs in a row.

 RawkHawk2010 9:54 am
    Japanese Direct also had this.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:54 am
    Is this
    ............

    Funded by Anita?

 Nintendork 13 13 9:54 am
    Polarium?
    With characters?
    Remember Polarium?
    On the DS?

 RawkHawk2010 9:54 am
    Hell no.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:55 am
    ...I-I do. :-(
    It was that Touch Generations game with black and white blocks
    and it was a puzzle game but I sorta forgot the concept of it.

 RawkHawk2010 9:56 am
    I just saw a Ms. Male.
    r.i.p.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:56 am
    I just remember Nintendo had some interactive Polarium puzzles on their site. <.<
    ...yeah.
    .........Guess we're done.

 RawkHawk2010 9:57 am
    wait
    how do we rate it

 Nintendork 13 13 9:58 am
    umm

 RawkHawk2010 9:58 am
    I feel like I lost more than I gained.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:58 am
    Splatoon/10

 Nintendork 13 13 9:58 am
    I'm not happy about Fire Emblem's future.
    ...or Intelligent Systems in general.
    Have they done anything on the Wii U?

 RawkHawk2010 9:58 am
    "Splatoon looks like it comes out of some alternate future where the dreamcast won its gen and blue skies arcade games dominate the world. I love it."

 Nintendork 13 13 9:59 am
    ....besides Game & Wario? <_<

 RawkHawk2010 9:59 am
    The above quote is true.
    It looks very Dreamcasty.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:59 am
    ...oh apparently they did Pushmo World :|
    eh
    Not gonna comment on Dreamcasty-ness.
    I just know I like it.
    (WHERE ARE YOU SHIN MEGAMI TENSEI X FIRE EMBLEM?)

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate New Nintendo 3DS XL
We're left puzzled on how to properly communicate the New 3DS's name to you.

Do you have a suggestion on how to write out "new 3DS", "New 3DS", or "NEW 3DS"? Leave a comment! ...Also comment what you thought of the Direct, of course.


Ludwig writes a response to the amiibo usage from this Direct here.
Pokémon Shuffle is actually not totally forgotten. Ludwig writes about his experience with it.

    I beg to differ.

    2. Well
      That's pretty cool in my opinion.
      I'm 100% unbiased.

    3. We're 100% biased, by comparison.

  2. I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't remember that Tipping Stars thing being announced at all.

    I... I feel so strange saying this, but... I think I might want to play that Puzzle & Dragon game now. XD

    And yes, Xenoblade Chronicles X showed off combat and story trailers before, so this trailer was just focusing on the environments.

    And that Fire Emblem game it started with looked really cool! o_o

    1. ...Oh, hi Samantha! You're back! ...Yay.

      We're not fans of Mvs.DK to begin with, but yeah it's not like we're trying to ignore its existence or anything.

      Well, uh, play the "free" version on mobile devices first. Maybe.

      The environments looked nice.

      Yes, it looked cool and stuff (still gotta rewatch to see if the characters have feet) but...
      ...come on, I want console Fire Emblem. :(

      Delete
    2. Such enthusiasm. :P

      I thought the free version wasn't localized. o_o

      Very Xenoblade-esque, little surprise. For that matter, combat also looks pretty close, except with the addition of guns and stuff.

      Well, maybe a console game will come next! Looking at Wikipedia, it looks like handheld releases are more normal for this series... I really should play Sacred Stones already.

    3. Okay, I tried the mobile Puzzle & Dragons. It's not bad, although it suffers from the main things I find annoying in that sort of mobile games--a system that requires you to either have a lot of patience or spend real money, a lot of menus (I don't know how to better explain it, but it's something I've noticed with flash/mobile games), content you have to be online for, etc.

    4. Believe me, I missed you. :'(

      http://koopatv.blogspot.com/2015/01/puzzle-dragons-quite-puzzling-on-nintendo.html
      " It's some sort of puzzler (Bejeweled) RPG from GungHo Online Interactive that is pretty much exclusive to smartphones, but there was a 3DS spin-off called Puzzle & Dragons Z that is priced like normal games are. Apparently that game is stuck in Japan though, with people crying out for it to be localised like people do with Mother 3 or Ace Attorney Investigations 2. Still, the mobile version is available in America, although it's apparently not able to catch the same popularity as the Japanese version."
      Dat last sentence.

      Depends on your frame of reference. If you're starting with the franchise's beginnings, it's, uh, sorta even. If you look at America-only then yeah only the Radiance saga has been on consoles.

      Now for your next comment.
      ...Well, if you don't like menus, you'll love Trayvon Tyson's Punch-Out!! (one menu that leads to a password menu, a how-to-play video, or the main game directly) and ESPECIALLY love Defend Anita Sarkeesian (no menus)!
      ...*ahem*

      Well, it sounds like the non-mobile version of Puzzle & Dragons would NOT have a lot of those issues because of no microtransactions.

      Delete
    5. D'aww, I was missed! ^_^

      Yeah, somehow I misread that the first time and came to the conclusion there was only one Puzzle & Dragons game, and it was Japan-only.

      Hmm, okay.

      XDDDDDD

      Yeah, hopefully. The mobile version also doesn't have the more RPG-like elements of P&D Z, like towns and NPCs. So if this new one is P&D with exploration (and... a story?) and no microtransaction frustration features, I think it's worth a look.
      (Oh, and now that I've actually remembered to test this part, take my "content you have to be online for" to mean "you have to be online to play this game at all." That's another advantage the 3DS version should have.

      Delete
    6. ^.^;
      (Alternatively, "Doh, I Missed!"

      Yeah, 3DS version wouldn't require online.

  3. I have a 2DS right now. I'm thinking about getting a New 3DS. As long as I'm able to take my data from my 2DS to my New 3DS, I'll be happy.

    1. That's how I wrote back on NSider as part of the Enlightenment Movement.
      Long story, good question.

      Basically the idea is that since that plumber is such an evil person to the Koopa people, saying his name is basically equivalent to a swear or a curse.

      (I don't censor his name in formal writing so people can take me somewhat seriously, but I do in NSider-derived places like our AIM chat.
      ...I also write a 0 instead of an o on Miiverse when writing out his name, but since I hand-write anyway I don't think anyone has actually noticed and just think I have weird handwriting.)
