Welcome to Nintendo Friday Night Fights!
Pictured: Not necessarily Mariokart
Guess how I was occupying myself this week? :D That's right: E3 happened. It was an exceptional one all around, but obviously I was quite interested in what Nintendo was going to do. They delivered, at least for me. New IPs, beautiful new versions of existing ones, Platinum and Itagaki, fucking figurines, the works. Not to mention the outstanding Treehouse, who were streaming tons of gameplay for three days. Tezuka showing off some Yoshi prototypes was especially awesome.
Tons of announcements, but surprisingly, no news for Mariokart 8 DLC! Guess I'll have to keep waiting for Dry Bones.
In the meantime...
New to Friday Night Fights? It's easy to get involved!
Each week, a bunch of us Dtoiders get together to play videogames online! It's a 100% community-run event, so feel free to join in or even host something yourself!
The planning for FNF starts in the forums
, where community members volunteer to host matches and post their pertinent details (game, time, Nintendo ID, etc.). Then, every Friday, reminder posts go up here in the C blogs followed by a recap post on the front page on the front page for last-minute planning.
To join in, simply send a friend request to the match host! (Don't forget to say you're from Dtoid!) If you'd rather host something yourself, just post your details below in the following format:
Wii, 3DS, or Wii U
For Wii & 3DS
Time (Eastern please!)
We hope to see you online!
