Today’s Nintendo and Daily news: latest episode of Nintendo Minute, but also…
- First 4 Figures
- Glory of Heracles IV
- Tool Assisted Speedruns
On Friday, Nintendo uploaded the latest episode of Nintendo Minute. And what’s more fitting for the final 2016 episode than a 2016 retrospective?
Hi, can you believe it? Only a few more days until 2017! We wanted to share our favorite 2016 Nintendo memories with you as our last video for the year. We are so lucky to have you amazing viewers who watch Nintendo Minute every week. Thanks so much for sticking with us all year long.

First 4 Figures
Last week, First 4 Figures teased a few figures for 2017:
- a Life Size Majora’s Mask
- True Form Midna figure
- an Okami – Amaterasu Life Size Bust
- Meta Ridley
Unfortunately, we don’t quite know when they will all be released…
Glory of Heracles IV
Glory of Heracles is a series of JRPG developed and published by Data East (who went bankrupt in 2003). Unfortunately, pretty much all the games were never released outside Japan, and the only one who did get an English release is the latest entry on Nintendo DS. Want to play the other ones? Unfortunately, there’s no official way to do it in English…
Fortunately, fans often step up to “localise” games themselves, releasing their work as fan translations. And last week, the fan translation for Glory of Heracles IV was released: you can click here to learn more about it, and download the translation patch.
Last week, Amazon sent a press release to announce that Pokémon Sun and Moon were the two best-selling games during the holiday period on Amazon.com. The company also shared one amusing bit of trivia:
If each Amazon.com customer who purchased Pokémon Sun and Moon this holiday spent at least an hour a day playing the game since its release, our customers would have spent the equivalent of more than 24 thousand lunar cycles capturing Pokémon.
