LINK TO THE PAST 2 FOR 3DS OMG I'M BEATIN
Nintendo just announced that it was developing a game set in the world of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.
In Japan, the game is being called The Legend of Zelda: 神々のトライフォース 2 (Kamigami no Triforce, which was A Link to the Past in the English language localization). However, it doesn't yet have a title in the West, it seems.
The game will feature a new storyline and new dungeons. Link will also have the ability to turn into a drawing on the wall to make his way around corners.
Loading times will be improved when switching between software or when returning to the Wii U menu.
The ability to copy and move data between USB drives will be added.
The Wii U will automatically install new software that you have downloaded in the background while playing a game.
Software updates will automatically be downloaded (even without starting the software).
You can immediately access Wii Mode while the Wii U is starting up if you hold the B button.
The Wii U will continue downloading and installing software even if the system is turned off.
The Wii U Virtual Console will be added the day after the update.
Wii U sales may be struggling but Nintendo's download business is booming. As part of its financial briefing today, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata revealed that the company's downloadable game sales surpassed ¥16 billion ($160.9 million), more than doubling sales of the previous year. Download sales also handily eclipsed the banner year of 2010, when "both the Wii and Nintendo DSi systems were actively used."
Iwata noted that the majority of Nintendo customers have taken their 3DS online. That includes 87 percent of users in Japan and 83 percent in America. Europe's connection rate is significantly lower at 57 percent. The Wii U, meanwhile, has an 80 percent connection rate worldwide.
Iwata also mentioned the surprising viewing habits for the company's Nintendo Direct presentations. For recent presentations, he said, "it became common to see total views for a single video reach five hundred to six hundred thousand in a matter of about 10 days on the Nintendo eShop while they did not show apparent growth on YouTube." In fact, it seems that the eShop is now the most popular source for Nintendo Direct, accounting for "approximately 60 to 70 percent" of total views. That might sound like a surprising statistic, especially given the immense presence of YouTube, but Iwata noted that the eShop appeals to viewers "who do not own their own PCs or smart devices."
lol - that is the tv remote... if you just want to play the VC game on your tablet, just boot up the Wii U via the tablet and launch it. Leave your TV on the other source (cable, etc).Nymyzys said:Dumbass question time. If I hit the TV button, all I get is TV controls. What am I doing wrong?
