Daily Briefs (Dec. 27): Nintendo Switch / The Unlikely Legend of Rusty Pup
Today’s Daily Briefs: some minor Nintendo Switch news, but also…
- The Unlikely Legend of Rusty Pup
- 3D printed consoles
- Takashi Tezuka’s Mii
Today, 4Gamer published their annual review, featuring comments from various game developers and creators. This year, the Nintendo Switch is mentioned a couple of times in there, but nothing really substantial unfortunately.
There’s one exception though: Souhei Shinkawa (CEO of Nippon Ichi Software) confirms once again that the company is working on something for the platform, though he doesn’t say what exactly. This is nothing really new, as Nippon Ichi Software expressed interest for the Nintendo Switch even before its official reveal, and the company is even listed as a partner for the platform.
Also, Kenichiro Takaki (of Senran Kagura fame) posted the following on Twitter, yesterday:

For those who are wondering, this is an invitation for the Nintendo Switch Presentation, to be held on January 12th/13th. And that’s all it means: he will most definitely not reveal anything during the presentation itself, and it would be surprising for Nintendo to mention a game like Senran Kagura (except maybe in a third-party reel).
However, it definitely would not be surprising if the Senran Kagura series did make its way to the Nintendo Switch, especially since the series first came out on Nintendo 3DS during its first year.

Today, Gory Detail shared a few screenshots for The Unlikely Legend of Rusty Pup (a puzzle game for the Nintendo 3DS and other platforms):
3D printed consoles
Thanks to 3D printes, enthusiasts have been able to create and recreate a lot of things. One of them (Dave Nunez of Rabbit Engineering) went and made some miniature versions of various consoles and classic computers, including the SNES, the GameBoy, and even the GameCube.
Here’s some pictures:
