Video: Mario Kart 8 gets the Frozen cover treatment

Video: Mario Kart 8 gets the Frozen cover treatment

YouTube Preview Image

For the first time in forever, YouTube user RogersBase has something to play on his Wii U.

Well, according to him that is in this clever cover of “For the First Time in Forever” from Disney’s Academy Award-winning animated film, Frozen. RogersBase’s video has plenty of comedic scenes and entertaining lyrical work to ease his patience for the May 30 release of Mario Kart 8. The video itself got more than enough buzz through the weekend that even Nintendo of America’s Twitter account shared it with their followers (see the screen-capped Tweet below).

You can watch RogersBase’s cover embedded above. Afterward, tell us what you think. Do you hope Nintendo highlights more of these type of videos through social media with fans? Tell us in the comments below.

Miiverse adds Facebook and Twitter sharing

original

The Miiverse is about to get connected with four major social media networks for extended sharing.

Today, Nintendo announced that the browser version of Miiverse will now allow for Facebook, Twitter, Goggle+, and Tumblr sharing for posts. The new functionality is only currently available for the browser version of Miiverse, but Nintendo adds that the option will makes its way to the Wii U soon. In addition, photo sharing is now available for the Wii U version of Miiverse.

Will you be sharing your Miiverse drawings and posts through these social media networks, or will you keep all the fun and creativity through Nintendo’s patented social network?

E3 Nintendo Direct set for June 11th

Nintendo of America has announced via their Twitter account that they will be hosting a new E3-centric Nintendo Direct on June 11th. The presentation will commence at 10 AM Eastern and will be available for streaming through Nintendo’s website. Nintendo has previously confirmed that the next iterations in the Mario Kart, Mario 3D, and Smash Bros. franchises will be present in some form during their next Nintendo Direct; however, other announced Wii U and 3DS titles are still under speculation. Will Retro Studios’ long-awaited new project be unveiled, or will a new partnership with a some other third party publisher be announced? These are all questions that will soon be answered at this next Nintendo Direct or, hopefully, at a later event during the week of E3 2013.

What do you hope to see Nintendo pull from underneath their sleeve? Discuss in the comments below.

Nintendo Of Korea Tweet Causes Controversy

Nintendo Of Korea Tweet Causes Controversy

ku-xlarge

 

Twitter seems to be the source of many controversies lately, and Nintendo is not exempt.  Someone using Nintendo of Korea’s Twitter account (it is unknown if the account was hacked, or if it was internal) posted the following in reference to Eun Ji Park and her boyfriend.  Eun Ji Park was once a weather forecaster, and is now a popular TV personality:

“She should have just stayed as a TV Meteorologist. Getting all the work done on her face like that. How come a brainless bitch like you gets the entire spotlight? Who is your sponsor? TV…sigh…”

I should point out that “sponsor”, in Korea, basically means “sugar daddy” and is synonymous for exchanging sexual favors for achieving celebrity status.  The article that prompted the tweet can be found HERE, however my Korean is a bit rusty.

Nintendo of Korea has claimed that the tweet did not originate from an employee, which could hint at a compromised account.  However, some of the Nintendo of Korea followers believe that the person who runs the Twitter account might have confused the Nintendo account with their own.  Nintendo responded with the following:

We’ve determined no employee has posted such comment on our Twitter account,” Nintendo of Koreatold Naver. “We’d like to know how this ended up on our Twitter. This matter is frustrating.”

The tweet has since been deleted.

Positive or Negative, publicity is publicity.  Do you think that the tweet will harm Nintendo of Korea’s reputation, or will it be forgotten by the end of the week?

The Game Machine Joe

YouTube Preview ImageHi Infendo readers!

I’m Game Machine Joe one of the newest bloggers for Team Infendo. I’m a 26 year old video gamer from Wisconsin; who like you all love everything Nintendo. I currently spend my free time (out side of playing video games) drawing, debating, and reading. I have a very critical eye for Nintendo products and only expect the best from Iwata’s team. If something Nintendo is subpar, I won’t sugar coat and you will hear about it. (I’m looking at you Wii U online chat function.) Although my main goal here is to inform the masses about all things Nintendo I would also like to help expand the Infendo community. Try getting the readers more involved with Infendo and have fun while doing it. I will love to hear from everyone and get to know everyone as an whole. I’m really interested in video game drawings and art. If you have any I would love to check it out and see what the community thinks about it. I know this site is about Nintendo but we the fans make Nintendo so I’m interested in helping to make Infendo about us. So with that said go Team Infendo!

If you would like to submit any art or ask me any questions send it to gamemachinejoe@gmail.com. I would really appreciate it. Since I’m new to the team how about we do a quick roll call. Maybe some Twitter and Facebook handles below in the comment section below or maybe your favorite Nintendo game to get the ball rolling. I’m looking forward to being here on Infendo and seeing what every one brings.

Nintendo of Europe Confirms: Mii Verse Will Not Connect to Facebook or Twtter

Nintendo of Europe Confirms: Mii Verse Will Not Connect to Facebook or Twtter

It seems that Facebook, Twiiter, Pinterest, and Tumblr are controlling the internet these days.  When I want to research a new company, product, or even a person, the first question I ask is, “Do they have a Facebook?”  This is not because I expect to find all of the answers there, but because it has become a central hub of knowledge.  From their facebook profile I can find information such as their website, contact info, what’s new, opinions, and even stuff I probably did not want to know.  Since social sites have become a centralized location of information, it seem just natural to connect the video game universe to those sites.

I have a few friends that have their PSN accounts linked to their Facebook pages, and as see see their achievements flash on my news feed, I get a little envious of their accomplishments, but even more so I get competitive.  Those notifications stoke a fire inside that makes me want to achieve more.  Connecting a game to a site such as Facebook is also free advertisement.  If you see a friend constantly winning achievements, you will probably ask them about the game and maybe pick up a copy yourself.
