Nintendo finally confirms some autumn release but still no date for Star Fox Zero.
Nintendo has kicked things off at Gamescom by announcing a string of launch dates and some special editions for key 2015 titles.
Super Mario Maker, as previously announced, is coming to all corners of the globe on 11th September.
If you’re more of a Zelda fan, multiplayer dungeon adventure The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes is set to launch on 23rd October for all favours of the Nintendo 3DS.
The Wii U’s big autumn RPG, Xenoblade Chronicles X, is playable for the first time in at Gamescom and Nintendo has revealed two limited edition bundles launching alongside the game in December (no date confirmed as yet).
The first includes a black premium Wii U console, a physical copy of the game, an art book and a world map poster. The second is a limited edition pack featuring a physical copy of the game, a SteelBook cover, a world map poster, a cover art poster and art book.
Other release dates include Itagaki’s Devil’s Third arriving on 28th August (don’t hold your breath for that one), and Project Zero: Maiden of Black Water, coming to Wii U on 30th October.
Finally, on 3DS, Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer and a starter pack of 3 amiibo cards launches on 2nd October, along with an Animal Crossing amiibo cards Collectors Album
There’s still no news on a release date for Star Fox Zero, which remains pencilled in for Q4 2015. Should we be worried?
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
