Dark Light

Well, that came out of the blue, didn’t it? Nintendo Of America’s President, Reggie Fils-Aime and Shigeru Miyamoto, the renowned creator of various Nintendo franchises like Super Mario and The Legend Of Zelda, took to The Tonight Show for a surprise public debut of their upcoming Super Mario spin-off, Super Mario Run for iPhone and iPad. The show’s host, Jimmy Fallon, who seemed psyched after seeing Miyamoto-san in the audience, got to play a level from the game and truthfully, it looked pretty decent, with good level design (rarely seen in most phone games) and additional game modes, such as Toad Rally and Kingdom Builder.

But the biggest surprise was when the Nintendo head unveiled their next gen console, the Switch for the first time on TV directly to the audience; not just that, but they also showed off some Switch gameplay of The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild. The game itself looks very similar to the Wii U version however this version did seem to run smoother than the Wii U one – no hiccups whatsoever as far as the frame rate is concerned. Breath Of The Wild was shown off on both the big screen as well as on the handheld, and the transition between them seems seamless.

Super Mario Run is set to release on the 15th of this month for Apple devices while Breath Of The Wild is slated for a March release next year.

What are your thoughts on Super Mario Run, the Switch and the Switch version of the new Zelda game? Do let me know in the comments.

  1. I tried the game. It is (surprisingly) available on the indian app store! Though only the first 3 out of 24 levels are available for free. Toad rally is also there but… well. You need a ticket to play a game. And I doubt it’d be easy to get without the full game.

    Anyways, a pretty fun REAL game. I am not a fan of pokemon go. I played it for a while out of sheer nostalgia (i played pokemon silver on a hand-me-down gba as a kid) but then it got BORING. Like, real quick. There is a sad lack of real substance in that game besides walking.

    The full version, as an IAP, is ₹620. I am not sure I will pay that much for a mobile game… but I might consider it? I am more comfortable paying 4000 for a DECENT console game. (I dont know how many people here know of kingdom hearts for ps3 consoles…)

    1. 620 does seem pretty steep but then you do have similarly priced games from big publishers o the Google Play Store (not an iOS user :P). Of course if you love the game, go ahead and get it, I’m hearing good stuff about this game 🙂 (more than a few people do seem upset by the price tag in dollars tho lol). As for me I’ll surely be trying it out when it comes to Android this year 😀
      Apologies for the late response btw 😛
