Miyamoto was actually the first person inducted into the AIAS Hall Of Fame, which is the award that they give out to those who are primarily known for game design. So he got his turn in 1998 :)
That’s a different building - it’s the later one that’s still standing, that I referenced at the end of the piece. (Also, I once walked right in the front door of that building back in 2002.)
Fixed it, thank you!
Also, what the hell is a trip of a long friendship? Again, though, Peach was probably scribbling this onto the wall of her cell with a pointy rock she found.
When Nintendo does stuff like this in-house, it... usually doesn’t go the extra mile. Thank goodness this was done by the masters at Hamster instead!
I think Joy-Con enabled casual sports would be a good idea, but it wouldn’t be a port of the Wii games - I’d fully expect it to be a brand new game that uses the Joy-Cons’ full range of motion control and rumble.
The specific issue with Captain Toad is that so many of the levels were designed with you having to use the microphone and touchscreen on GamePad. That’s some major redesigning that would have to get done, which I think pretty much disqualifies this version from being straight ported.
As far as Mirage Sessions goes,…
Haha. Um. I don’t think they needed to poll anyone, if you get my drift.
Regarding the idea, expressed in many comments below, that Switch is not portable enough:
It’s true, as far as it goes - the Switch is not a 100% perfect substitute for 3DS, because it is larger and not especially suited to being carried in one’s pants pockets. If this is an issue for you, then yes, the Switch is not a…
Virtual Console games are not safe! That said, most of them are available through other platforms by this point and likely will be in the future as well, whereas the future of a great deal of this WiiWare is quite up in the air. Also, if we bogged this down with Virtual Console praise there would have been less room…
Correct. You can buy all of the outfits with coins, no Amiibo necessary.
I did this exact thing last night! Took me forever but I was so happy when I finally did it...

Yeah, and weirdly if Setsuna didn’t have a manual, I wouldn’t have been inspired to comment on this, even though in that case the discrepancy would have been even larger. The fact that it actually did have a little tiny single-sheet manual was what got me thinking about it.
Thank you so much! Also, nice recursive photo, hopefully someone can take a pic of them holding the book in front of that photo, and so on. Anyway, very nice of you to say. Glad you liked it.
Correct - the game’s entire plot is dissected within the book, so finish it up first if you’re concerned about that!
It’s definitely a landmark game in that way for a lot of people - it was the game that forced so many people to cross the Rubicon and start importing, and later, to start translating their own games.
Correct. The rest are blank so you can write down passwords.
The box is the rarest and most expensive part of that set, though, since it was never sold brand new - the box was only ever set out on the shelves at Blockbuster Video when the game was for rental.
