Today’s Daily Briefs:
- Nintendo theft (UK)
- Star Fox Zero @ Nintendo NY Store
- Fushigina Ten Tsunagi 3D
- Nintendo patent
- Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX
It looks like Nintendo has once again ran into trouble with video game thieves in the UK. Last year, the company had a GAME truck filled with Splatoon Limited Edition stolen. And today, we learned that “Thousands of pounds” worth of Nintendo games were stolen from a truck in Northamptonshire, last week. The driver was sleeping at a service station when it happened.
It happened on April 13th, and apparently, the thieves cut open the side curtain of the lorry before stealing its contents. But right now, we don’t quite know which games were stolen, but the timing implies it was most likely copies of Star Fox Zero (though this isn’t confirmed).
Star Fox Zero @ Nintendo NY Store
Today, Star Fox Zero came out in North America (and Europe). To celebrate, Nintendo had a special event at the Nintendo NY Store, with:
- the puppets made by Jim Henson Company for the Nintendo Digital Event at E3 2015 on display;
- part of the E3 2015 booth set, where players can sit in order to play in front of the giant screen;
- various Star Fox games and goodies on display.

Fushigina Ten Tsunagi 3D
On May 11th, Collavier will release Fushigina Ten Tsunagi 3D on the Nintendo eShop of the Nintendo 3DS, in Japan (where it will cost 800 Yen). It’s a game in which you have to connect stars in order to draw pictures. It features several modes, such as Normal Mode, Speed Mode, and more. You can even decorate your own room with various items. There’s even a story mode.

Just like pretty much all major companies (especially those dealing with high-tech), Nintendo regularly files for patents. The majority never get used (not as such), and many of them will make you scratch your head in puzzlement. This is the case of today’s patent, which is for a “Training Implement, Training System, and Input Device”.
