Splatoon, Splashing Directly to You!

Nintendo has announced a Nintendo Direct live presentation taking place this May 7th for the upcoming shooting platformer, Splatoon. This year’s big summer multiplayer game for the Wii U, like Mario Kart 8 before it.
Will we know more of the local multiplayer, new modes, more amiibo compatibility?
The amiibo 3-pack announced for the game.

The presentation will be taking place this May the 7th, and will bring us details on content of the game, the Wii U bundle, and the different amiibo compatible with the game.
So far we know of a couple offline modes, including a local 2-player mode and a campaign mode, along with the online multiplayer and character customization, both cosmetic and weaponary.

The Splatoon Wii U announced weeks ago.

The amiibo announced so far are 3, and it is yet unknown if existing Smash, Mario Party or Animal Crossing amiibo will work with the game, so we may get some more information in the Direct.

The Splatoon Wii U bundle was announced a couple weeks ago, so we may learn if there’ll be any extras exclusive to this bundle, like the digital copy of Hyrule Historia for your Wii U on the Legend of Zelda: WindWaker HD bundle.

You can check the official announcement right here: Splatoon Direct – 5.07.2015

Xenoblade Chronicles X Direct

What we learned from the Xenoblade Chronicles X Direct.

From the world map, to side-quests, to the story line, to the controls, and more.
Humanity has managed to survive an Alien attack by leaving their home planet and starting a new society in a new planet, Mira, in a city called New Los Angeles.

There’s 5 continents in this world, each very different from one another, Primordia, where the player starts its journey and humanity has started to create a new society, Noctilum, a wilderness filled with vegetation and water, Oblivia, a giant dessert with an oasis, Sylvalum, a deep tundra, and Cauldros, a post-apocalyptic volcanic area with ancient architecture from an unknown culture.
A character on a Skell gazing upon New Los Angles.
The Wii U gamepad’s touchscreen will be used for exploring and tapping on the map, exploration, quest log and other features that will prove useful to keep track of all the content this game has to offer.

The creatures in this game vary in shape and size, also varying in how easy it is to approach it, and if they’ll be peaceful or attack you head on.
There’s two items which will aid you exploring new areas, the first is the Nav Ball, which is a light ball that will show you the path you must take to go forth in the story. The other item is the Hopper Cam, which basically works as the live google maps within the game.
Skells are the mech suits in the game which allow you to explore the world easily weather it is by air or land, and also give you an advantage in combat.
For more details and to take a look at the graphics of the game, you can watch the Xenoblade Chronicles X Video Showcase here:
