Nintendo you disappoint me.

After so many years,with a brand new console incoming,you come up with this ?

Call it a reboot,or a sequel,or a prequel,or a remake,however you want. You know that Nintendo games doesn't have story progressing and they are either all happen in alternate universes,or Nintendo essentially re-releases the same games again and again with few differences.

But this ladies and gentlemen is Balloon Trip, which is the new Balloon Fighter,perhaps a game that you never heard of before,because it took Nintendo 25+ years to remember that it had that franchise.

Well the new one is supposed to show off the console's new features.
So lets start counting them:


#1 IMPROVED GRAPHICS!!! Graphics are clearly improved,and in particular they forward jumped 2 console generations,as from NES graphics now you get PS1 graphics.

#2 NO MORE CHARACTER!!! Yeah I now,it is hard for Nintendo to give personalities to its characters,so instead of playing the old little someone with blue hair,now you play as your Mii.
Do you feel the innovation already ?

#3 TOUCH SCREEN CONTROLS!!!! Which means you are moving your character not by d-pad,not by control stick,neither even with motion controls. You now move your character with a stylus pointing at your controller's screen. Have you played Zelda: Spirit Tracks ? You know how it is...
(sarcasm)The most amazing and innovative experience ever! (sarcasm)

#4 TWO SCREENS AT THE SAME TIME!!!! And of course for the grande finale we have the biggest innovation yet gaming has seen. You can see your character and the game's world on the screen of your controller,as it would be weird to control him using the stylus otherwise,but at the same time you see him on the TV too!
So in case you get bored of watching the game on one screen you can watch it on the other!
The innovation of being able to watch the exact same thing on 2 different screens is amazing.
But I wonder where the race of people with 2 heads and 4 eyes lives,because I for one,can't watch both screens at the same time.


WiiU is bringing the biggest innovation in gaming to your house!
