Nintendo week: 15-22 July 2018


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

This July - between Sunday 15th July and Sunday 22nd July - we're marking the 35th anniversary of the NES with a full-blown 8 day week dedicated to all things Nintendo. I am directing traffic, and here's the outline:

Sunday    15/07/2018    NES/Famicon
Monday    16/07/2018    Gameboy (and its successors)
Tuesday    17/07/2018    SNES
Wednesday    18/07/2018    Nintendo 64
Thursday    19/07/2018    Gamecube
Friday    20/07/2018    Nintendo DS (and its successors)
Saturday    21/07/2018    Wii/ Wii U
Sunday    22/07/2018    Switch

So whilst each day will be console-specific, you can pitch in with your favourite game(s), or even claim bragging rights to a franchise and chart each entry per console (Mario & Zelda being the most obvious franchises to be snapped up!). And if there's something Nintendo-related that doesn't fit under a particular console - be it a movie, a cartoon show or one of the lesser known pieces of hardware - stake your claim and I'll find a space for it!

Get your proposals in here and I'll give my blessing if it hasn't already been taken by an Earth-2 staffer!

I will probably do a short piece on Earthbound but that's mainly just because that's my thing.

Since I missed talking about it during 1000, anyone up for talking about Smash Bros? For that matter, I am down for reviewing Super Marios Bros.The Movie or Pokemon The First Movie.

........... or Pokemon The First Movie.

I have not heard about Earthbound until recently. I look forward to it.

I look forward to that for different reasons.
