Nintendo to Launch New Nintendo 2DS XL Portable System on July 28!

VANCOUVER, B.C., April 27, 2017 – The Nintendo 3DS family of systems will soon be adding a new member. On July 28, New Nintendo 2DS XL makes its debut in Canada at a suggested retail price of $199.99. The New Nintendo 2DS XL system gives consumers a third choice of hand-held systems, one that offers pricing and features that fit between the Nintendo 2DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL systems. New Nintendo 2DS XL will launch on the same day as two big new games for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems: Hey! PIKMIN and Miitopia.

“This new addition to Nintendo’s portable hardware line demonstrates our commitment to the hand-held market,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America’s President and COO. “New Nintendo 2DS XL sports a beautiful clamshell design and offers a great balance between price and performance.”

The new system will be available in a stylish black/turquoise color, and will use the same size large screen found on New Nintendo 3DS XL systems. As the name of the new system implies, visuals will be displayed in 2D only. The system is lighter but still packs the same power as New Nintendo 3DS XL, and has built-in NFC support for amiibo cards and figures. It can play the massive library of quality Nintendo 3DS, New Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DS games in 2D. Nintendo systems are also the only dedicated video game systems where people can find their favorite characters and game franchises, such as Mario, Peach, Yoshi, Kirby, Pokémon, Fire Emblem, Mario Kart, Super Smash Bros., Animal Crossing and The Legend of Zelda.

There are over a thousand games in the Nintendo 3DS game library and more are always on the way, including two that launch on the same day as New Nintendo 2DS XL. These new games will offer fun new experiences for New Nintendo 2DS XL owners, and for owners of any Nintendo 3DS family systems.

·      Hey! PIKMIN: In this brand-new style of Pikmin game, players guide Captain Olimar through 2D side-scrolling levels and collect Sparklium to refuel his crashed ship, the S.S. Dolphin 2, so he can escape the planet. The touch-screen controls let players choose the right Pikmin to toss at enemies and objects, which is critical to defeating foes and solving the many puzzles Olimar encounters during his adventure.

·      Miitopia: Band together with your Mii and Mii friends to explore your own personalized world of Miitopia. Cast Mii characters into various roles and watch hilarious scenes unfold as they work together to defeat the Dark Lord who has stolen the faces of townspeople of Miitopia. Players can bring in their created Mii characters from the Miitomo or Tomodachi Life games, or create their own Mii team in the game. This game has a lighthearted tone with traditional and strategic RPG-like elements, including customization, relationship building and team management.

Remember that New Nintendo 2DS XL features parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access. For more information about other features, visit http://www.nintendo.com/en_CA/2ds/new-nintendo-2ds.

Nnooo thinking about bringing 5 games to Nintendo Switch!

27 April, 2016 – Sydney, Australia: Nnooo is expanding its stable of published games with the announcement of 2 new titles coming to multiple consoles.

The first title to be announced is MALLOW DROPS, the multi-award-winning gravity puzzle game from Australian developer John Kane. Help two kiwis, Marsh and Mallow, rescue their eggs in a shattered world and get to the exit! Turn everything upside down as you slide, shift and move through the game’s mix of platformer combined with gravity-defying sliding block puzzles. Watch out for the Wooly Jumpers and Dirty Underbears who will make your life difficult and avoid the dreaded Dropbears at all costs! Getting to where you need to go is half the fun – just be sure to look before you leap.

The second title is ARMED WITH WINGS: REARMED, a 2015 PAX Aus Indie Showcase Winner from Australian developer Daniel Sun. The game is a 2D action/puzzle platformer set in a dangerous world ruled by darkness and imperial tyranny. Use your sword to summon the power of Lightning and Thunder, assisted by your eagle companion who explores the skies to scan the road ahead, distract guards, move objects and collect unreachable items. Tyrant King Vandheer resides in his palace, waiting for your arrival. Your goal – to challenge and defeat him.

Both games will be playable on PC on the Nnooo booth at this weekend’s GX Australia convention in Sydney.

Nic Watt, Founder and Creative Director of Nnooo says:

“We’re delighted to add these 2 Australian games to our publishing lineup. They are both very different in nature but share the same qualities of high production values and great gameplay, and both games are really fun to play. We are looking forward to working with John and Daniel to ensure their games reach a wider audience.”

In addition to Mallow Drops and Armed With Wings: Rearmed, the following games previously announced for consoles will be playable on the Nnooo booth at GX Australia:

MAJESTIC NIGHTS
by Epiphany Games (playable on Xbox One)
ROGUE SINGULARITY by Considerable Content (playable on PlayStation 4)
ANODYNE by Analgesic Productions (playable on Xbox One)

All five games, currently available on Steam, will be published on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One by Nnooo. In addition, all games are currently being assessed for their suitability on Nintendo Switch.

Console/handheld release dates and final platforms for each game will be announced on future dates.

As an extra bonus the following games will be playable on Nintendo 3DS at GX Australia:

ESCAPEVEKTOR by Nnooo
BLAST ‘EM BUNNIES by Nnooo
THE LEGEND OF KUSAKARI by Librage

Business and Marketing Director of Nnooo, Bruce Thomson says:

“We had a handheld section at last year’s GX Australia and it was very popular so we thought we’d include some of our previously released Nintendo 3DS games at this year’s show. We also recently celebrated our 10th anniversary so it’s a great opportunity for us to showcase our work. With a total of eight unique games spread across multiple platforms we have something for everyone at this year’s GX Australia.”
