Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima recently gave an interview with Time Magazine where he revealed a tiny bit of new news about the Nintendo NX console: it won't be another Wii, but the company also isn't ready to bail on the Wii U:

I can assure you we’re not building the next version of Wii or Wii U. It’s something unique and different. It’s something where we have to move away from those platforms in order to make it something that will appeal to our consumer base.


As for the Wii U, Kimishima wants to make sure the 10 million people who own one aren't left in the dust: 

I think our first job right now is to make sure that the customers, those 10 million customers who have a Wii U at home have software to play. And we need to make sure that they are satisfied with their purchase and continue to enjoy playing on this platform. So we can’t just abandon them and say ‘Hey, it’s time to move on to the next thing.’ Of course we are working on NX and looking at the experiences we can bring to that platform. But first our job at this point is to support the consumers who have purchased Wii U and make sure that they have software experiences available to them.

We know the NX is, hardware wise, supposed to be more powerful than Nintendo consoles past, putting it at least in line with what the PS4 and Xbox One can do. Whether or not that's true remains to be seen, but we may not have to wait long to find out. Kimishima remained mum about a release date for the console, saying the company would reveal more details next year, but manufacturers are prepared to begin production in the first quarter of 2016 for a mid-2016 release.

The official lyrics to "Go Go Mario," translated into English from Japanese:

Today, full of energy, Mario is still running, running
Go save Princess Peach! Go!
Today, full of energy, Mario runs
Today, full of energy, jumping!
Today, full of energy, searching for coins
Today, keep going, Mario!

Get a mushroom - it's Super Mario!
Get a flower - it's Fire Mario!

Goomba! Troopa! Buzzy Beetle! Beat them all!
Mario is always full of energy and strong!

[Spoken] The only one who can reverse the spell that has captured the Mushroom People is Princess Peach. But Princess Peach is hidden underground, in a far-off castle. Ah, the days of peace... if we could once more return to those days... to save Princess Peach and bring peace back to the Mushroom Kingdom, that is why Mario is on his journey today.

Today, full of energy, Mario is still running, running
Go and beat the Koopa tribe, go!
Today, full of energy, Mario runs
Today, full of energy, jumping!
Today, full of energy, searching for coins
Today, keep going, Mario!

Get a star - become invincible!
Quickly, go save Princess Peach!

Lakitu! Blooper! Cheep Cheep! Beat them all!
Mario is always full of energy and strong!

Today, full of energy, Mario is still running, running
He's made it to the castle and gets fireworks!
Lightly sidestepping the Hammer Bros.
Show the last of your power, Mario!
It's been a long journey but it's nearly at an end
You've done it, you've done it! You've defeated Bowser!

Princess Peach says "Thank you"
Mario's got a great big heart!

Mario's adventure is over for now, but
Mario's dream lives forever...

There hasn't been a new Katamari game since 2012, but the time may finally be coming! 

Bandai Namco just filed a trademark for "Touch My Katamari" as well as registered a domain for the same name. There are no details about the game yet, but don't be surprised if you hear of a new Katamari some time in the near future.

video games fallout easter egg shows ninroot from skyrim

If you've played an Elder Scrolls game, you're probably familiar with the glowing Nirnroot plant, valued for its healing properties. If you're also playing Fallout 4 (who am I kidding, of course you are), you may have stumbled across an "experimental plant" that looks an awful lot like Nirnroot aboard an airship research station. 

I know what you're thinking, "it's just a reused asset," but, consider the notes from the scribe who discovered the plant in the Fallout universe: according to him, the plant emits a light that is a result of bioluminescence, not radiation, and makes him feel stronger when he drinks a tea made from the plant. Could they be the same plant?

It may very well be that these are totally different, but it's fun to speculate about a connection between these two universes.

This game would have launched at the same time as the film with more characters and a different story. It would have been a first person game with a lot of cooperative game play. The publisher had to shut down the companies that were working on the game due to financial reasons.
