Nintendo was apparently being coy when they announced before E3 that the only game they were bringing to the show was The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. They revealed a new action RPG for the 3DS called Ever Oasis a short time into their second day of streaming Treehouse Live @ E3 2016.

The game is being developed by a company called Grezzo under the leadership of Koichi Ishii. He is a long-time game developer who has participated in several Final Fantasy games, the entire Secret of Mana series, and is credited with designing Moogles, Chocobos, and the job system from Final Fantasy V which is still used in games today

Ever Oasis is a game that places the player in control of a character who, along with a water spirit named Isuna, is tasked with settling and growing a great oasis in the middle of a vast desert. Players will build shops, forage for materials, and scavenge for the tools their oasis needs to grow.

Over time your oasis will attract other characters of various races and tribes. You’ll be able to recruit these characters into your party while you venture into dangerous dungeons in search of treasure and experience. While in the dungeon you will be able to switch between the member’s of your party at will.

Ever oasis is not without a story though. The gist of the story is that the magical force of chaos has swept into the desert swept the main character’s brother away and is infecting the local animals and turning them into monsters. You need to help return the animals to normal while you are growing your oasis.

We don’t have any details yet regarding a release window yet, but this does look like a promising addition to an already stunning lineup of RPGs on the 3DS. Keep your eyes on Pixelkin.org for updates as we get closer to the release date.

Nintendo went live on YouTube Live @ E3 on Monday to announce a list of independent games that will be coming to the Wii U and 3DS in the coming months. Here they are.

Jotun Valhalla Edition – Wii U

Jotun was released on PC last year. It is a hand drawn, isometric adventure game where players take on the role of a female viking as she ventures through an abstract landscape and challenging mighty Jotuns to battle.

The game draws significant inspiration from Dark Souls and the other games made by From Software. This inspiration is expressed in the difficulty of the bosses. The Jotuns are punishingly difficult and force you to learn their patterns and practice your execution until you beat them.

Runbow Pocket – New 3DS

Runbow is one of the more popular Nindies in the last few years. It is a simple concept. Runbow is a competitive platformer where players race to a finish line while the background regularly changes color. As the background changes color the multicolored platforms in the foreground disappear when the colors match. This makes each race super chaotic and (in my opinion) fun. Fans have been asking 13AM games for a handheld version of the game since its release. Those wishes are finally being answered. Later this summer Runbow Pocket will release on the New 3DS.

Runbow Deluxe & Runbow Pocket Deluxe – Wii U and New 3DS

Runbow will also be receiving a physical edition in the form of Runbow Deluxe and will be in stores later this year.

Axiom Verge – Wii U

Axiom Verge is an exploration based platforming game that was developed by a one man development team. It carries inspirations from classic NES games like Contra and Metroid and has already been a success on PS4 and PC. The release on Wii U will give players some additional tools like a map openly visible on the game pad, which will definitely help make exploring the vast map.

Severed – Wii U and 3DS

Severed is a first-person role-playing game that was made by Drinkbox Studios (the people behind Guacamelee). The combat is largely touch based so using a stylus on the Wii U or 3DS screen fits perfectly here. The game has already been released on PS4 and Vita to modest success so it makes sense that it would be ported elsewhere.

Nintendo may as well have set the internet on fire overnight with the news that came out of their quarterly earnings call. They revealed a wealth of information that sowed more than a little bit of chaos onto the web this morning.

I woke up to a press release with all of the news this morning. Take a look below for snippets of the press release as well as my thoughts and feelings.



Nintendo’s first app for smartphones and tablets has already crossed 10 million unique users worldwide. The free-to-start social experience app launched in Japan on March 17 and in a variety of other countries, including the United States, on March 31. In the United States, Miitomo reached #1 free app status in its various online stores shortly after release. Along with these outstanding user numbers, Nintendo also has, to date, sparked more than 300 million conversations in Miitomo. In addition, users can insert their Mii characters into photos to create unique “Miifotos” that can be shared through various social media. As of now, more than 20 million Miifotos have been created. To celebrate Miitomo hitting 10 million users, Nintendo will run a special 10-day “Celebrating 10 Million Users!” promotion April 29-May 8.”

Miitomo has been very successful so far considering that it has already reached 10 million users with less than six weeks on the global marketplace. The fact that it has 300 million conversations started within that same period of time is equally impressive.

The question still remains, however, whether or not there will be any staying power for the app. It could fall off of a cliff completely at some point. The good news for Nintendo is that probably doesn’t matter. It has already been an amazing trojan horse that has helped get a large number of people signed up for My Nintendo accounts and to get their emails into the system so Nintendo can market their other mobile titles to them.

Speaking of which…

Nintendo’s Next Mobile Apps

“Building on the positive consumer reaction to Miitomo, Nintendo announced that its next two mobile apps would be based on the familiar and beloved Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing franchises. Nintendo plans to release both of these applications this fall. As for the former app, while making it more accessible in comparison to the Fire Emblem games for Nintendo’s dedicated gaming systems, Nintendo aims to offer the great value of a role-playing strategy game. Nintendo will design the latter game so that it will be connected with the world of Animal Crossing for dedicated gaming systems. By playing both Animal Crossing games, users will find increased enjoyment. Both of these are pure game applications. Compared to Miitomo, they have more prominent game elements, and the game content will tie closely into Nintendo’s dedicated games business. Nintendo will provide more details about these applications closer to their launch period, and aims to have multiple types of apps that appeal to different audiences and different groups of players.”

The next two Nintendo mobile games will be based on Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing. These are both amazing properties that have a lot of potential as mobile games.

There are already a HUGE number of strategy RPGs on mobile devices as that style of combat is perfect on a touch screen. The press release states that it will be more accessible that previous entries in the franchise, which honestly isn’t all that tough considering the challenge level of the series. Also, there are a number of ways they could go that arent necassarily a strict turn-based strategy game. They could easily create some sort of hero focused tower defense game or a base building game of some kind. Regardless… I can’t wait.

The Animal Crossing app is interesting as well. The press release states that it will be connected in some way to Animal Crossing games on dedicated gaming devices. The question just becomes… how? They could patch some sort of connectivity into New Leaf or Happy Home Designer. But, it could be a sign that a new game might be coming later this year. That could be pretty awesome! Only time will tell.

The Nintendo NX

Nintendo previously announced that it would release more information about its next system, code-named NX, this year. As the first announcement of any NX information, Nintendo confirmed that NX is scheduled to launch in March 2017. NX will not make an appearance at the upcoming E3 video game trade show in Los Angeles in June and will be unveiled later this year.”

I lost myself a bet here. I guaranteed that the NX would come out this year and made two bets with writers on other sites.

… And I lost those bets.

Honestly, though, this is not a bad idea at all. Pushing the NX out until 2017 gets it out of the way of any of the other upgraded consoles being rumored for 2016 and gives Nintendo more time to tighten the launch lineup.

The Legend of Zelda

The latest installment in this classic franchise is scheduled to launch simultaneously for both Wii U and NX, and both versions of the game have been in development in tandem. Because developers need more time to polish the game, it will launch in 2017, but it will be the focus of Nintendo’s presence at E3.”

Delaying the new Legend of Zelda game definitely stung some fans. But, the delay didn’t sting as much as the fact that it will be simultaneously released on both Wii U and the NX.

E3 Plans

Nintendo changes its approach to the show every year. This June, Nintendo will focus its attentions on the upcoming game in The Legend of Zelda franchise. The Wii U version of the game will be playable for the first time on the E3 show floor, and it will be the only playable game Nintendo presents at the show, in order to provide attendees a complete immersion. Additional information about Nintendo’s E3 plans will be announced in the future.”

E3 is coming up very soon and it is easily the noisiest period of the year.  Competition to “win” the event in the eyes of the gaming press and the fans is insane based on the number of games and pieces of hardware shown. Nintendo leaving all of their console news until after the event and leaving The Legend of Zelda to fend for itself is actually a pretty savvy move. People will be so excited to get their hands on the new game that it will definitely garner a lot of attention. They might not need anything else to dominate a lot of headlines and build interest. They can then follow up with a Nintendo Direct a month or two later with a bunch more game announcements and not even have to worry about the E3 noise.

The Nintendo Direct was week ago, but we are still super excited for several of the announcements that Nintendo made during the presentation. Take a look at the full video and then look below for our favorites!

Star Fox Zero – Wii U

I’ve been concerned about Star Fox Zero for a while. It didn’t look very good when it was formally announced and everything I read about the way the game controlled gave me plenty to be scared of. The numerous delays haven’t done anything to help heighten my excitement either. The footage and features they showed this time around have us much more excited. The biggest reason? The introduction of a cooperative mode where one player can control the ship while the other controls the fine aiming with the Wii U gamepad. I simply cannot wait to give this one a try with my kids!

Star Fox Zero will launch on April 22nd.

Paper Mario: Color Splash – Wii U

Paper Mario and the Thousand Year Door for the GameCube is one of my favorite RPGs of all time. It is dumb. It is laugh out loud funny and it has some of the smartest turn based combat in the entire series. Paper Mario: Color Splash looks like it has a chance to return the series to form by bringing it back to the home console to take full advantage of the hardware’s power.

We don’t know any of the details regarding release window, but it is safe to assume it will be out during the later part of the year.

Splatoon – Wii U

We thought that updates for Splatoon were over, but Nintendo is coming back swinging! They have already released a balance patch with the intention of improving matchmaking and increasing the weapon diversity by making some of the lesser used weapons better. They also plan to release several different weapon configurations in packs called “Shelldon’s Picks” starting in April!

Kirby: Planet Robobot – 3DS

Kirby Games are always a treat. He’s adorable and his games are often very forgiving for kids who want something to play. This time you control Kirby just like you always have, but with the added twist that you can hop into a giant mechanized suit of armor.

Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past – 3DS

We are huge RPG fans here at EFG. That won’t come as a surprise to any of our regular readers.

The Dragon Quest series is one that doesn’t get a lot of love in North America and it really doesn’t make much sense. It has interesting characters, cool stories, and tight mechanics. Dragon Quest VII is one of the best in the series and it is getting the full remake treatment for the 3DS. The graphics are being redone and it is being fully localized for the Western audience. It will be coming out later this year.

We haven’t even reached the 20th anniversary of the release of Pokemon in Japan yet and the celebration has already started.

We will be able to download legendary Pokemon each month for most of the year. Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow are heading to the Nintendo 3DS eShop over the weekend. And now it appears we will be getting two new games.

Nintendo had already announced a Nintendo Direct focused on the Pokemon franchise for February 26th. Unfortunately, the cat looks to be out of the bag regarding their big announcements.


Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon have been leaked ahead of tomorrow’s Nintendo Direct thanks to trademark filings in Europe. We don’t know much aside from the titles and a pair of (gorgeous) logos, but speculation is already running rampant online.

The good news? We don’t have long to wait before they give us more details. The hype train is officially leaving the station! ALL ABOARD!

All of the Pokémon released as part of this celebration will be playable on Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokemon Omega Ruby, Pokémon X and Pokémon Y.

Mew might start the party this month but additional Pokemon will be released on the following:

2015 was a slow year for the 3Ds. There were a handful of noteworthy games, but it was dormant for most of the year when it came to new releases worth talking about. 2016, however, is shaping up to be much more exciting and we aren’t even out of the first quarter yet! Even more interesting? A lot of the games coming out this year are amazing looking role-playing games.

Take a look below for some of the highlights!

Project X-Zone 2

February 16

The original Project X-Zone came out a few years ago and was a big surprise.I spent every second playing that game in slack jawed awe at how much crazier every minute was the last. It featured characters from all over the video game industry in a strategy game that had no reason to be fun, but was super entertaining.

The sequel is full of even more characters  than the last one (53 to be specific) and, really, any time I get to use Ryu in a turn based strategy game I am happy.

Pokemon Red, Blue, Yellow

February 27th

These games aren’t exactly “new” but this will likely be the first time a lot of 3DS owners get to experience the games that started it all. They are being released as part of the 20th anniversary of their Japanese release and will give everyone another chance to collect all 150 Pokemon once again!

Dragon Quest 8: Journey of the Cursed King

Sometime this year

I have always found it interesting that the Dragon Quest series was never a very big deal in the west. They have all the things that would normally make a successful RPG franchise, and it is a huge game in Japan, but it hasn’t resonated with Western audiences so far.

Dragon Quest 8 was released on the PlayStation 2 back in 2005 and is being brought to the 3DS with some gameplay adjustments.

We don’t have many details yet, but I would bet that we will hear more at this year’s E3.

Dragon Quest 7: Warriors of Eden

Summer 2016

Dragon Quest 7 was never released in the west, but it is finally being brought over. Square Enix is reporting that it will be a completely new game with new gameplay elements and some story alterations thanks to its western localization.

One of the biggest changes is the removal of random encounters. Instead, you’ll be able to see all the enemies on the map and be able to try and avoid them.

Bravely Second: End Layer

April 15th

Bravely Default was one of our games of the year for 2014. It was an amazing game that brought me back to my childhood. The sequel looks like it will deliver the same kind of experience and I can’t wait.

The game takes place after the events of the first game, but will include a new cast of characters going on another whirlwind adventure to save their world. They gave us a little taste of the games setup with the following quote “On the eve of Peace, war is ignited. Agnes Oblige, icon of world peace, has been abducted.”

I can’t wait!

2015 was a great year for family games, but 2016 looks like it will be just as good (if not better). Take a look below for a list of the ten games we are looking forward to the most

Mighty No. 9


Mighty no. 9 found its way onto this list because of its wildly successful kickstarter a few years back. It is intended to be a spiritual successor to the Mega Man franchise and it looks like it will be a lot of fun to play.  Unfortunately, the game has been delayed what feels like 87 times. It has been delayed so frequently at this point that it is starting to squelch the giant pile of excitement that I had.

Final Fantasy Explorers

Evan, our oldest, is excited enough for this game all on his own to catapult Final Fantasy Explorers onto the list. We really didn’t know much about this one until Square Enix started sending out press information in the last few months.

The core elements mimic some of the elements of the Monster Hunter series that has been super popular worldwide. The difference is that it features final fantasy job classes and the ability to use special moves and/or items to summon iconic Final Fantasy characters.

This should be an interesting experiment and the new 3DS is a great place for this type of action RPG.

Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare was a massive surprise when it was release and it has built a HUGE audience of 8 million players. The sequel was inevitable and we are super excited to play it.

The best part of Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 is that it is everything great about the first game with more cool stuff like sci-fi elements and new characters (like an orange that shoots lasers).


I am so excited for Overwatch that I am giddy. Blizzard has a great history of taking genres, identifying the key components that make them fun, and designing a new game that highlights those key elements.

Overwatch looks like it will be the next game to go through that process and be all the better for it.

We are looking forward to this one and hoping that the recent design decisions to remove most of the blood will remain so we can enjoy this with our older kids.

Pokemon Go


People have been calling for a mobile Pokemon game for years. Pokemon Go is the answer to those players prayers and more.

The game is being developed by the team behind Ingress and features the some of the same mechanics. Pokemon will be placed all over the world using GPs coordinates and players will be able to physically go to those locations to fight them and capture them. The result will, hopefully, be an opportunity for players to really feel like a Pokemon trainer.

No Man’s Sky

no mans sky logo

No Man’s Sky is making some bold promises. It is promising players an opportunity to explore a universe that is almost infinite in size. It is promising millions upon millions of unique planets, the majority of which have never been seen, to explore. Something about that makes it seem too good to be true. Something has to be wrong? They can’t possibly accomplish this stuff right?

We are going to find out this year and I cannot wait.

Street Fighter V


I’m not gonna lie folks. I LOVE me some Street Fighter and Street Fighter V looks like it will be one for the ages.

I recognize that there will be some parents who will question why I would place a fighting game so high on my list of family friendly titles, and I can respect that. But, I strongly believe that Street Fighter is different because the game is at least positioned to be about a tournament. There may be fireballs and lightning attacks, but these characters are competing in a non-lethal tournament (as opposed to, say, Mortal Kombat or Killer Instinct).

Many of you might have heard on our podcast that Uncle Badger and I will be holding a Street Fighter V tournament sometime this year. Keep your eyes on EFG for more information about it. You don’t want to miss it!

Pokken Tournament

Anyone concerned about Street Fighter should immediately be comforted by my inclusion of Pokken Tournament. This is a hardcore fighting game that features a HUGE pile of Pokemon like Pikachu, Machamp, Mewtwo, and more. It is already doing well in Japanese arcades and will be launching in North America during the first half of 2016.

We simply cannot wait to get our hands on this one.

My wife and I collaborated quite heavily on this list and while we generally agreed on positioning for the games that we have already talked about he simply could not agree on a number one. Mainly because new entries in our respective favorite game series are being released (ostensibly) within 2016. In the spirit of compromise we agreed to let it be a tie between our two highly anticipated games. They are:

Final Fantasy XV – Steve’s pick

Point blank: Final Fantasy XV gives me the chills.  I have loved this series since I was in 8th grade and I don’t think that will be going away any time soon. This entry features some interesting changes. It features an action RPG battle system (as opposed to turn based battles in the past) and it features a primary cast that is entirely male.  It also features an amazing black convertible that you drive across the map as one of the main parts of the gameplay loop.

I know a lot of people have abandoned Final Fantasy in favor of other classically styled JRPGs and I can’t really blame them. But, something about this game has me counting down the days.

The Legend of Zelda Wii U – Jenna’s pick

The Legend of Zelda Wii U is one of our most anticipated games because we love the Zelda franchise. Beyond our love for the franchise however, there are many more things that draw us into the game.

First, and most obviously, would be the unbelievable aesthetic to the game. The artwork is absolutely stunning. It’s how we’ve always wanted a Zelda game to look.  It’s not too cartoony, it’s not too dark, and it perfectly displays the fantasy like atmosphere of the game.

The second reason that this is one of our most anticipated games is the open world concept.  We love the idea of exploring anywhere within the kingdom without having to follow a linear path.  If you can see it, you can go there.

Finally, we love the fact that they are going to keep the puzzles and dungeons that we love while reworking them to add more dimension and an exciting new feel. At least, that’s what was promised to us.

Now, they actually have to show us more of the game and get it in the shelves.  The wait has been long enough.

Nintendo has a big year ahead of them in 2016. President Kimoshima, who took over after the unfortunate passing of President Iwata last summer, spoke to a Japanese newspaper to outline a five point plan for the company’s operations through the end of the year.
