Gamers complain about the price point. Critics discuss every feature revealed for the system. But what about the developers that plan to create games for Nintendo 3DS?

On Wednesday, Nintendo of Japan announced the price point (25,000 yen in Japan, unannounced in other territories) and release date (Feb. 26 in Japan, March for U.S. and Europe) for 3DS. Along with the date and cost, the company pulled back the curtain on a slew of features for the new handheld. I spoke with the heads of three different third-party developers for 3DS to get their take on all the latest happenings. (more…)

Nnooo Knows Games

Seeing video game consoles stacked next to work desks indicates a strong love for gaming, even if the system revolves around research. Nic Watt, CEO and creative director of Nnooo Studios, just used his Nintendo 64 to check out the polygon count on character models since the system specs parallel Nintendo DS and DSi.

The latter handheld serves as a home to most of Nnooo’s releases — from Pop Plus Solo to myNotebook and the recently-released my Postcards. It is no wonder why Watt continues to explore the hardware, specifically in regard to DSi. He wants “to make sure that [Nnooo Studios is] exploring the best features of the particular platform and making the best use of them because [he] thinks people buy a DSi because of the features that it offers…” (more…)

Nintendojo journey to Nnooo (part 1 of 3)

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

Evan Campbell popped over to visit us while he was based in Sydney. The following is his first post about his visit. You can read the full article at Nintendojo here.

Journey To Nnooo Studios

Location: Downtown Sydney.

I jump off one ferry and briskly walk toward another boat on the wharf. Skyscrapers line the horizon to my left while the soothing water of the Tasman Sea sits to my right.

I hop on the Balmain East ferry a minute or so before the boat’s planned departure. I ask a woman fitted in a Sydney Ferries polo if this is the right boat to jump on, and she grunts in an approving manner.

Once on the ship, I choose to plop down on a red cushioned seat with no one else in the aisle. A woman behind me continues to make crackling noises with a brown sack lunch that irritates the headache I’ve been fighting off. But no matter, I’m more focused on the journey ahead and can’t wait to sit down with Nic Watt, creative director and CEO of Nnooo Studios. (more…)

Nintendojo preview myPostcards

Friday, March 26th, 2010

Evan Campbell of Nintendojo has put up a great article previewing myPostcards on Nintendojo (you can see the original here)

DSiWare: myPostcards Preview

Finding the right ingredients for a successful game on DSiWare seems rather difficult, especially for a third-party developer. Yet Nnooo Studios believes that stirring together the unlikely pair of post cards and video games with myPostcards may become the next best combo after peanut butter and jelly.

The DSiWare title allows people to take pictures with their DSi and then create a postcard with various backgrounds, hand writing and even digital stamps. When finished, the player downloads the finished product to the DSi Camera, which allows them to upload the image to Facebook, e-mail the card or even print the picture out to send via snail mail.
