There’s a lot of new things coming from Nintendo, all of the following being announced on their stream today. Note: None of it is Walking Dead related
The first thing is a trio of new Amiibos celebrating the 30th anniversary of the greatest RPG series ever made: The Legend of Zelda. They are due to launch on December 2nd.
The trio consists of (grown) Link from Ocarina of Time, 8-bit Link, and a special two-pack containing Toon Link and Zelda from the Wind Waker series. The new line will function the same as the other Link and Zelda Amiibos, except with an added special function for Breath of the Wild, coming in 2017.
The next thing to come out of the stream is Super Mario Maker for 3DS. Also due to launch on December 2nd, it will feature 100 Nintendo-made courses and will allow players to connect to the internet to play courses made on the Wii U version released last year. Wii U puzzles won’t be searchable by their course ID, but will be playable in 100 Mario Challenge. Nintendo also added that not all Wii U courses will be playable on the 3DS version.
The next thing is Poochy and Yoshi’s Wooly World for 3DS, as well as a new Yarn Poochy Amiibo. The game is set to release on February 3rd, 2017. It will include every stage from the Wii U version, as well as added Poochy stages.
Accompanying its release is a new Yarn Poochy Amiibo that can either be bought separately or in a bundle with the game.
Next up is Mario Sports Superstars, a new title coming to 3DS in Spring of 2017. The game will include soccer, tennis, baseball, golf and horse racing in single player, plus local and online multiplayer.
Also, a new Pikmin game has been announced for the 3DS, marking Olimar’s first foray into the world of handheld gaming.
The title for the Pikmin game is not final, but it is due for a release at some point in 2017 and will be a sidescroller with a focus on action. Players will tap the the screen to throw Pikmin, and the game will extend to use both screens.
The next bit of news from the stream takes form in a new six-player game headed to the eShop, Tank Troopers. It offers players the ability to select from various troopers with different abilities. It’s coming to the eShop this Winter.
Lastly, is Picross 3D Round 2, which is available today for $29.99. The game was released in Japane as Picross 3D 2 and is a follow-up to Picross 3D for the original DS. The game works with Amiibos and has a demo available on the eShop today.
