Animal Crossing: New Leaf – Welcome amiibo
Today, Nintendo began uploaded a series of videos for Animal Crossing: New Leaf – Welcome amiibo. They show how you can summon various animals in the game, and meet them at the campground, in their own camping car (filled with unique furniture). Today, we start with Timmy and Tommy!
Game preservation is something that more and more people are paying attention to. After all, video games have become a part of the culture of many countries, especially those like Japan (home to many game companies, known by million of players around the world).
If that’s a topic that interests you, here’s a documentary from the NHK about game preservation (that doesn’t specifically focus on Nintendo platforms and games, though):

Majesco, the game publisher, is no more. Polygon reports that the company merged with PolarityTE (a company developing tissue regeneration technology). This does seem like a rather strange move for a video game publisher, but it may be for the best as the past few years have been really rough for Majesco (what with the collapse of the casual market from the Wii / DS era).
