Hot off the presses this minute is the very latest in wii gaming news, it's stirring up a frenzy in different quarters of the globe and everyone is trying to keep on top of the very latest developments, especially when it comes to Japanese gaming manufacturer Nintendo.
Being in the wii gaming news is all part of Nintendo's ongoing evolution. It's a far cry from their origin back in 1889 when all they produced were playing cards, how the times have changed!
Translated from Japanese Nintendo means "leave to heaven" and I can't help wondering if this philosophy is really one of the reasons they have been such a hugely successful company.
In December 2014, their hardware sales rose almost 30% and their software sales hit an increase of over 75% this was largely down to Bayonetta 2 and Super Smash Bros which on their Wii U sold 1.3 million copies.
With Amiibo pitching in by outselling the game by twice as much with over two and a half million figurines sold as of the close of the year, much success has recently been enjoyed, and with Mario Kart 8 selling 1.7 million units so far, 2015 has been eagerly anticipated by gaming fans.
So what is the latest in wii gaming news and Nintendo? Well on Jan 14th 2015, they launched their brand new Nintendo 3DS XL. How has this been greeted? Well I have to say by looking at their promo trailer it does seem North America have been left out in the cold when it comes to current systems available in Europe, Japan and Australia.
The States is only getting the XL model which means no brand new faceplates as featured in the 3DS model will be available. This is problematic as those of us who prefer the 3DS smaller size will now require a larger system, yes, an upgrade will be required.
Along with the exclusion of an AC adapter, something we've all become accustomed to, this really doesn't sit well with the buying public does it? No doubt they're "leaving it to Heaven" again, I mean AC adapter or not, it's going to break all records again, isn't it, don't you think?
