Happy 19th Birthday, Virtual Boy
We hardly knew ya. No seriously, you were around for less than a year with a very limited install base.
Yes, it hurt your eyes when you played it. Yes, the controller was weird. Yes, the library was small. But hey, they can’t all be winners.
While the Virtual Boy was an abject failure, I don’t think we’d ever have the 3DS without it. And the Wario Land game for VB is so great and underrated, I’m surprised a port hasn’t been made. [❤]

Rumor: Nintendo Working on a Remaster Title for 2015

This rumor comes from a fellow who predicted Devil’s Third for Wii U. For those of you who don’t speak French, here’s what @NicoWav tweeted out earlier today.

You’re gonna love it, but it’s a Remaster. It’s perfect to fill gaps inthe line-up. Really, Big N [Nintendo] will have one game per month in 2015.

Any guesses on which title Nintendo is remastering next? The fan favorite seems to be Majora’s Mask. While I wouldn’t mind that one bit, I’d love to see an HD version of Metroid Prime or Paper Mario 2. [❤]

You Won’t Believe Yoshi’s Real Name
Blake Harris, author of Console Wars got his hands on a Nintendo Character Guide. Among the characters featured were Yoshi, whose full name is “T. Yoshisaur Munchakoopas.”
Like an episode of Lost or the Daily Smash Bros. Screen, this reveal asks more question than it answers. What does the “T” stand for? I’m guessing Theodore.
My guess is most likely wrong, but the great thing about this is I’m fairly positive even Nintendo completely forgot about Yoshi’s formal name. [❤]
