New Cartoons Breathe Fresh Life into Nintendo Video

Posted on November 17, 2013 by Jason Nason

Well Nintendo released the first few episodes of The Legend of Zelda: The Misadventures of Link over the last weeks on Nintendo Video. The videos are short as expected, topping up at just over a minute. The first such short little video just has Link, in the polygonal art style of The Wind Waker, crawling through a tunnel collecting rupies before he is dropped through the floor.

The video isn’t anything to write home about but I must say that I love the continued addition of added content to Nintendo Video and not just more music videos. Personally I didn’t really watch the random music videos and skipped right passed them in favour of the other content.

New Zelda and Pikmin Series Coming to Nintendo Video

Posted on October 31, 2013 by Jason Nason

Finally Nintendo seems to be listening to me, or rather the thousands of fans who have likely voiced the same thing. Original Nintendo content on Nintendo Video.

Nintendo Video is ready to launch a fresh lineup of new shows for the fall. The free video application for the Nintendo 3DS will debut new short-form videos starting November 1st that will continue into 2014. Five new series have been slated, including two featuring The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD and Pikmin 3!

I’ve long said that Nintendo could and should leverage their well known properties in some way, whether it be licensing or producing high quality content for theatres or television. Nintendo Video? I’ll take it. It’s a great first step.

“This latest set of great new shows for Nintendo Video gives fans a unique way to enjoy two of their favorite Nintendo franchises, in addition to hand-picked series from some of the most imaginative and successful creators in the world of animation,” said Tony Elison, Nintendo of America’s senior director of Business Development.

Take a look at the new series coming to your Nintendo 3DS (and 2DS) starting tomorrow!
