The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

Nintendo Titles Get Dated At Gamescom

Posted on Wednesday, August 18 @ 14:08:30 Eastern by
Did you know that Gamescom is going on right now? It's like Der Wienerschnitzel, but without all the hotdogs. OK, so it's nothing like it, but it does have video games!

Gamescom is like the European E3, and its held in Germany! Sometimes I wish Gamescom came first, then we wouldn't have total fiascos like the Konami Press Conference in LA. But if that were the case, then we wouldn't get all of the information and hands-ons in the states first! Well, anyways, with Gamescom in full swing, Nintendo has seen fit to date all of the software it has coming out this Holiday season. Why don't we jump right in?



On the Wii side of things, Metroid: Other M (which we already knew about) is still coming out on August 31. Samurai Warriors, which I know nothing about, is out on September 27. Wii Party will be landing on October 3, making all of you Mario Partiers give up the mustachio'd mascot in favor of your Miis. Kirby's Epic Yarn, the E3 graphical darling, will land two weeks later on October 17. PokePark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure will never be as good as Pokemon Snap, but it'll still be available on November 1. Flingsmash, which I found kind of interesting back during E3, will be on shelves on November 7. Donkey Kong Country Returns will barrel over several holiday shoppers in its race to shelves on November 21.

The Wii also has third party offerings, including NBA JAM on October 5, GoldenEye 007 in November, and Disney Epic Mickey at an undisclosed point this holiday season.

On the DS, gamer's will be able to grab Professor Layton and the Unwound Future (stepping on P.B. Winterbottom's toes are we?) on September 12. Pokemon Ranger: Guadian Signs will turn children into the obsessive freaks we all are on October 4 while Art Academy will land on October 25. Finally, Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem! will pit the plumber and the monkey against each other again on November 14.

Third-party wise, the DS will see Super Scribblenauts in October and Rock Band 3 on October 29.
