Hey everyone, I’m a former Nintendo employee who was fired during this pandemic because of budget cuts, meaning they couldn’t pay me and many others.
To get back at Nintendo for firing one of their best employees, I’ve decided to leak some info about new games and Nintendo’s plans.
First of all, there’s not going to be any Nintendo Directs for a while. When this quarantine started,
Nintendo had to stop working on games and other stuff for a while so they could get settled working alone in their homes.
After a little less than a month, they were able to continue working on games, though slower than usual.
Part of that is because they had to fire many employees as said earlier. There is a chance that Nintendo has changed many of their plans since they fired me,
which was near the middle of April, so don’t take any of my words as fact.
Nintendo will have their next Direct September 13th, the release date of Super Mario Bros.
I’m sure you can see where this is going. I don’t know many specifics about it since I was a programmer and didn’t work on the Direct at all, but I know a few things, which I’ll reveal as I go on when it’s convenient.
“Tomodachi Life 2” (Working title, I think) is a sequel to Tomodachi Life on the 3DS.
It improves upon the foundation set by the first title in the series (second if you live in Japan) by expanding the scope and adding tons of replay value.
The main change is that in the original, most events relied solely on actual time meaning that it feels like a mobile game at times,
while 2 rids of this system, and makes it so you control the time freely. In this game’s town hall, one of the new main functions is being able to change the clock to any time you’d like,
so you can play all day and still have things to do.
(More info in replies.)
Some other very notable additions are the removal of the personality types, which instead of having 16 personalities your islanders can have,
the new and expanded personality quiz can allow for more than 1000 unique personalities.
Just to clarify, these are kind of similar to the 16 that were present in the previous, but even small alterations to your answers can change your islanders in smaller ways.
Other changes include expanding all of the item selections by at least 200%, including clothes,
hats, treasures, foods, interiors, and more. A museum building will open on the island which is a fabulous display of all of your collected items.
There’s new clothing options in the form of accessories, such as scarves, glasses, and other smaller clothing items.
A pet shop will open which allows you to get islanders many animals. From the top of my head, multiple dogs,
a cat, a bunny, mouse, snake, tarantula, and even some super exotic ones like a small crocodile.
Depending on the size of the pets you get, each islander can either have one or two pets.
A new thought bubble color was added, yellow. This pretty much stands for “They want to talk” which was under black originally. Black now stands for needs.
Tomodachi Life 2 will be revealed during the Nintendo Direct mentioned earlier and will release in mid-december of this year.
The Direct will also reveal that Metroid Prime 4 is in development again and show a short reveal trailer, which I haven’t seen.
Finally, the end of the Direct will show the thing you’ve all been waiting for…
3D Mario remakes! Every single one will be remade, and they’ll be released in 3 different game collections.
The first will include Mario 64 and Sunshine and be called Mario 3D Classics Collection (Working Title, I hope).
The second includes the Galaxy games and is called Mario 3D Galaxy Collection (Working Title).
The third includes Super Mario 3D Land and 3D World and is called Mario 3D Classics Collection Vol. 2 (This is definitely a placeholder title).
These are the main games I worked on for most of my time working at Nintendo, so I know them inside and out.
Mario 64, Sunshine, and both galaxy games have very similar physics to Mario Odyssey, which feels off-putting at first, but better than the originals eventually.
3D Land and World both have a modified version of World’s physics as it better fits the games.
All of the games are very accurate remakes while fixing some bigger problems with the games,
such as skipping cutscenes in Sunshine, more obvious hints as to where certain things are (in a good way) in Mario 64, and more camera options in the galaxies.
All of the games also allow you to either play the remakes of the games, or the originals.
I know almost everything about these remakes, so It’d be better for people to ask me questions about them than to go on forever.
There also may be plans for a New Super Mario Bros. Collection including NSMB, Wii, and 2, but I’m not sure about that, so don’t trust me there.
If you have any questions about anything I said, make sure to ask in the replies. Peace.
