Man, Mario gets all the attention; the best mushrooms and even all the girls. That all changes this year, because it’s the year of Luigi. That’s the overall message from the perpetually delightful Nintendo president Satoru Iwata from yesterday’s Nintendo Direct.
Pikmin is another one of those absolutely genius Nintendo franchises that hardly anybody in South Africa gives a damn about. Designed by Shiggy Miyamoto, the ridiculously adorable, but strategic…uhh strategy game won over hearts and minds in the rest of the world. There’s a new trailer for Pikmin 3, headed to the Wii U next year – but my excitement is mixed with a bit of sadness.
