Nintendo of Europe
Do you like red? The web design team at Nintendo of Europe certainly does! In the past few months, various parts of the official website were gradually updated (home page, game pages, web eShop intergration, etc.), and during the night, another update went live: it brings a new header and menu.
And now… everything is red. Instead of just changing the colour of the logo, Nintendo of Europe decided to turn the header and the menu completely red (as you can see in the screencaps below). The menu was also updated and condensed (you now need to click on the icons to see the sub-menus, instead of simply hovering your pointer over them), and the country selector isn’t displayed as an overlay anymore.
Speaking of overlay, there’s now a social media overlay, with a link to all Nintendo of Europe’s accounts and pages (Twitter, Facebook, Twitch, etc.).
Here’s some screencaps:
Upcoming Nintendo Events
Last week, we launched our new Upcoming Nintendo Events page, where we list:
- the “weekly events”, such as Nintendo eShop updates, new Media Create data, etc;
- the annual/major events, such as E3, PAX, the Game Developer Conference.
The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask – Life Size Prop
Here’s the making of video for the Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask – Life Size Proper:
Pre-orders will go live tomorrow (on January 10th)!
Yesterday, VentureBeat published an interview with Jen-Hsun Huang, CEO of Nvidia. The interview isn’t about the Nintendo Switch specifically, but there is a bit about it.
Here’s Jen-Hsun Huang’s totally unbiased, uninterested, and hyperbole-free answer:
Nintendo Switch is a game console. It’s very Nintendo. That entire experience is going to be very Nintendo. The beauty of that company, the craft of that company, the philosophy of that company—they’re myopically, singularly focused on making sure that the gaming experience is amazing, surprising, and safe for young people, for children. Their dedication to their craft, that singular dedication, is quite admirable. When you guys all see Switch, I believe people are going to be blown away, quite frankly. It’s really delightful. But it has nothing to do with AI.
You will say “wow!”.
The Nintendo Switch will be released in March, worldwide.
