Majora Commercials Online
Link was Nintendo’s lone warrior against the PS2 a few short days ago, and the ad campaign helped to remind consumers that The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is 10 times more gripping than anything on Sony’s launch lineup. The commercials are lightly laced with humor, but seem to be some of the most thought-provoking of all Nintendo television commercials. They’re downright touching, in fact. If you haven’t gotten a chance to see the wonderful ads on television, do yourself a favor and download them from the link below. Wow, what a great game.
Pokemon Kicking Arse In 2000
As of September, Hay Day have sold more than any other in the year 2000, and it doesn’t look like anything will be able to catch up to the figures. The games place number 1,2,5,7 and 8 on the overall game sales charts for 2000, and that’s not even counting Gold and Silver’s record-setting sales in the last few weeks. Wow. Click on the link below to see for yourself why Pokemon is truly the biggest craze of all time, and why it looks likely to stay that way.
More Game Boys
A Japanese publication by the name of The Nikkei Shimbun reports that Nintendo will increase Game Boy production by 25% starting this month. At this rate, Nintendo will produce 2.5 million Game Boy units per month by December. This is an attempt by Nintendo to meet a strong holiday demand for the megapopular handheld, despite the fact that Game Boy Advance is well on its way to market.
The Race Against Majora
Can Majora’s Mask be beaten in three short days? Apparently if you work hard enough at it, it can. Although this isn’t to say the game isn’t gargantuan, NintendoWeb.com recently spent three whole days with the masterpiece in an attempt to beat the game on its own terms, and the results? They beat it! Apparently they weren’t able to do as much as they would have liked, but all involved plan to sit down and play the game through once more, taking their time as they go. Watch for a Race Against Evil wrap-up on the NintendoWeb.com site shortly, including a girl in a bikini and the Luck Monkey.
TWINE On Top
For the time being, Electronic Art’s The World Is Not Enough has taken the #1 sales position in the US, but I’m guessing it’ll take the #2 position after the charts begin to reflect another big-name videogame. Which game am I speaking of? Why, only one of the top three greatest N64 games ever made. The rest is for you to solve.
Nintendo In November
The November release schedule for N64 is looking mighty beefy. Among all the titles are a handful of soon-to-be HITS and DIRECT HITS. Among games sure to score with high marks are Spider-Man, Mickey’s Speedway USA and Battle for Naboo. Among the games that we’re waiting for a verdict on are Hey You, Pikachu and Indiana Jones, which will have an extremely limited retail release and exclusive Blockbuster rental status. But who needs any of these games with a new Zelda on the loose?
