Animal Crossing: New Leaf Offers More To Do Than Ever Before

posted 7 Jun 2013, 07:43 by Knuckles Sonic8   [ updated 7 Jun 2013, 08:34 ]

VANCOUVER, B.C., June 6, 2013 –
The gates of Animal Crossing: New Leaf will open when the game launches for the Nintendo 3DS system on June 9, inviting residents to move in and, in a series first, become mayors of their own personalized towns. Animal Crossing: New Leaf is based on the real-world calendar – no two days in the game are the same – and includes features new to the series like customizing specific pieces of furniture, visiting a tropical island, swimming in the ocean and even sharing personalized homes with friends.

"Residents of Animal Crossing have never had it so good," said Ron Bertram, Nintendo of Canada’s vice-president and general manager. "With a host of new features and a game that changes every day, players will find themselves visiting Animal Crossing: New Leaf for a long, long time."
 
A Mayor's Life
As mayors of their towns, players make decisions that will directly affect how their towns grow and function. Players can set ordinances, such as keeping their shops open later if they find themselves playing the game mostly at night, and also select public works projects to build, including bridges, benches, streetlamps and clocks. In addition to being mayor, players are also residents, and can earn money to spend at local businesses on Main Street, get to know their neighbours and collect myriad items like insects, fish, fossils and fruit, some of which can be donated to the town museum for visitors to admire.

Once players get accustomed to their new life in the town, Tortimer, the town's former mayor, will visit and invite them to the tropical island where he now lives. The tropical island is a new feature in Animal Crossing: New Leaf that lets players search for unique items and take mini-vacations with up to three other friends who also own the game. While visiting the island, they can participate in a tour featuring a fun mini-game. They can even rent a wetsuit and dive into the ocean to catch underwater creatures or just leisurely swim around and enjoy the sights.
 
More to Customize, More to Share, More to Discover
Animal Crossing: New Leaf expands on the remarkably deep customization that fans love. Like previous Animal Crossing games, players can customize almost everything in the game, including their homes' interior design and clothes, as well as patterns for clothing, wallpaper and carpets. But in this game, players can also adjust the specific look of thousands of individual pieces of furniture, including new types of wall items like clocks, shelves and lamps, and decorate the exterior of their houses with new mailboxes, doors, façades and stepping stones. Players can even create custom fashion designs at the Able Sisters' Tailor that can be turned into QR Code patterns to be shared with others. The amount of customizable options is nearly endless.

Players can play locally with other Animal Crossing: New Leaf fans who also own the game, share Friend Codes to travel to other players' towns, go on a tropical island tour via a wireless broadband Internet connection with friends or up to three other random players from all over the world, or tag fellow players using the StreetPass feature to add their personalized houses to the Happy Home Showcase.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf is constantly evolving and changing. Certain items can only be found at a certain time of day, and certain events can only be experienced during special in-game holidays on the calendar. There's something new to do every day in Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

Also releasing on June 9 is a special Nintendo 3DS XL system featuring designs from Animal Crossing: New Leaf that comes pre-installed with the new game, which is perfect for players who want to check on their bustling towns without having to carry around a Game Card. The charming system will retail for a suggested retail price of $219.99 at Best Buy (in-store and online).

Remember that Nintendo 3DS features parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access. For more information about this and other features, visit http://www.nintendo.com/3ds.

Major Wii U Update Adds New Features and Improves System Performance, Virtual Console and Wii U Panorama View Also Set to Launch

posted 26 Apr 2013, 09:30 by Knuckles Sonic8   [ updated 26 Apr 2013, 09:33 ]

VANCOUVER, BC, April 26, 2013 –
The next major system update for Nintendo’s Wii U home console after launch is now available for download. The update delivers a host of new services and enhanced features, such as improved stability and performance, as well as faster load times when switching between applications. The update also lays the groundwork for the imminent launch of the Wii U Virtual Console service. Wii U owners also will soon see the launch of Wii U Panorama View.

“Wii U continues to grow and evolve with new features that make it a better experience for everyone,” said Ron Bertram, Nintendo of Canada’s vice-president and general manager. “Now owners can navigate to their favourite games and services even faster, or play some of their favourite classic games.”

Here’s what the system update delivers:
  • The time required to start the Wii U console, launch built-in applications, exit software and return to the main menu, jump between applications, and jump between software and Miiverse has been reduced.
  • While the Wii U logo is being displayed during the system startup, users can directly transition to the Wii Menu by holding down the B Button on the Wii U GamePad.
  • Users can install games and applications from the Nintendo eShop in the background while other software is being used.
  • When powering off during a download, Wii U will go into a standby mode, then power off when all downloads and installations are complete.
  • Users can transfer and copy data between two USB storage devices in Data Management. This allows users the opportunity to upgrade or replace a current USB storage device that is connected to the Wii U Console.
  • Users can control the priority of their downloads when downloading multiple items at once.
  • Improved account selection when powering on the system now displays Nintendo Network IDs to clearly distinguish accounts.
  • TV screen size output can now be adjusted in the System Settings.
  • An Undo/Redo button was added to the Miiverse drawing input screen.

As previously announced, additional features are scheduled to be rolled out a short time after the update goes live. Wii U owners can soon expect to find:

Virtual Console
A library of quality classic games is planned for the Virtual Console on Wii U, with favourites such as Balloon Fight, Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., Excitebike, F-Zero, Ice Climber, Kirby’s Adventure, Kirby Super Star, Mario Bros., Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream, Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario World, Super Metroid and Yoshi on the way soon. Game Boy Advance and Nintendo 64 games are scheduled to be added in the future.

Each game in the Wii U Virtual Console library has been developed to include off-TV play on the Wii U GamePad controller, customizable controls, Miiverse community support and the ability to instantly save game progress. NES games will cost $4.99 to $5.99, while Super NES games will cost $7.99 to $8.99. People who have already downloaded these games to their Wii System can transfer them to their Wii U consoles and play them in Wii Mode at no charge. To upgrade and take advantage of the improved Wii U features, they can purchase them at the special discount price of just $1 for NES games and $1.50 for Super NES games.

Wii U Panorama View
Wii U Panorama View opens a window to the sights and sounds of some of the world’s most exotic destinations. Wii U owners use the GamePad controller to look in every direction to control an immersive 360-degree video guided tour as these destinations come to life from the comfort of your living room. Imagine catching all the sights during a tour of London on a double-decker bus or exploring the streets of Rio de Janeiro during Carnival. Wii U Panorama View will be available as a free downloadable demo from the Nintendo eShop and includes a sample of different experiences the application has to offer. The full versions of each individual video tour can be purchased for $2 each.

Remember that Wii U features parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access. For more information about this and other features, visit http://www.nintendo.com/wiiu.

Visit each planet to collect the greatest amount of energy and the mission will be a complete success. Humanity will die out some day, but not this time! Be brave! It's in your hands to prevent it! 

Features:
  • 32 levels (4 planets with 8 levels each).
  • Runner playability.
  • Touch control and easy handling.
  • Amazing, innovative graphics.
  • Local ranking.

Explore LEGO City and Bring Gangs to Justice in LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins

posted 22 Apr 2013, 11:50 by Knuckles Sonic8   [ updated 22 Apr 2013, 11:54 ]

VANCOUVER, BC, April 22, 2013
– Chase McCain is known by the thankful citizens of LEGO City as a legendary police officer. But where did his story begin? Every legend has to start somewhere. LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins, available now exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS™ system, is a prequel to the well-received LEGO City Undercover game for Wii U™. The story is set two years before the events of the Wii U game and follows Chase McCain as a rookie cop trying to prove himself in LEGO City.

“LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins builds on the same action-filled game play and humour of LEGO City Undercover for Wii U,” said Ron Bertram, Nintendo of Canada’s vice-president and general manager. “Every member of the family can experience Chase’s exciting journey from rookie to legend, on the go with their Nintendo 3DS systems.”

Like any first day on the job, LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins starts off with Chase performing simple tasks such as retrieving doughnuts and looking for lost pets. But as the story progresses, Chase stumbles into something much more menacing: Different gangs start to cause trouble all over LEGO City, and it’s up to Chase McCain to put an end to their crime wave.

The story of LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins for Nintendo 3DS is based on the popular LEGO City play sets, and features various undercover disguises that Chase can collect and wear. These disguises grant him special abilities, as well as access to new areas in the game’s budding LEGO City. While investigating specific crimes in multiple missions, Chase will drive dozens of vehicles, engage in slick hand-to-hand combat with criminals and gather a wide variety of collectibles that can unlock bonus content.
