When the Nintendo 64 came out, in 1996 in Japan, it was already late (it was supposed to come out in 1995). But it could have been delayed even further, all because of Martin Hollis (Director of Goldeneye007). In a statement sent to NintendoLife, he explained the following:
I wrote a piece of code which displayed spinning icosahedrons; as many as possible until the framerate dropped below 60Hz. The head of the project at SGI was not too pleased to discover what the performance of the machine was in terms of triangles per second. He asked to see my code in the hope it was inefficient. It wasn’t. He later told me that SGI very nearly did another spin of the hardware to fix the issue, which was with the memory interface.

Today, Circle Ent. made two “announcements” on Twitter:
- ConveniDream (a “simulation” game in which you have to manage a convenience store) was about to be sent to lotcheck at Nintendo America. The game should be released in mid-May if everything goes well;
- Puzzle Labyrinth is also about to be sent to lotcheck at Nintendo America, with more details coming soon.
We already knew that Minecraft on Wii U would get a retail release down the line, but we didn’t know when exactly. Today, the official Twitter account for Minecraft announced that this release would come “soon”… unfortunately, we don’t know what “soon” means, and if Europe is also getting it “soon”.
