Nintendo World Report took a look at Kid Icarus on the new NES Classic Edition and did a quick comparison against the 3DS 3D Classics port and the Wii and Wii U Virtual Console releases.
The visuals in the NES Classic Edition version do appear to be brighter and more crisp than the previous releases, especially the ones on the Virtual Console. However, the game does lack the flair added in the 3DS re-release.
The NES Classic Edition launches on November 11. It comes with 30 games pre-installed and features three different visual filters:
- CRT filter: Looks like an old TV, scan lines and all.
- 4:3: Gives you the original NES game look, with a slight horizontal stretch.
- Pixel Perfect: Each pixel is a perfect square, so you see the games exactly as designed.
MSRP is set at $59.99.

While Ubisoft’s latest entry in the Just Dance series did not light up the charts in its opening week in the U.K., where it debuted at number 26, there was an interesting thing to note about its sales breakdown – the top-selling platform for Just Dance 2017 was the Wii.
Sales of the game on the soon-to-be two-generation-old console made up 44 percent of the total sales in the region. Meanwhile, sales on the Wii U made up another 16 percent.No comments
No More Heroes and Killer 7 director Goichi Suda, also known as Suda51, recently told Destructoid that if a third game in the No More Heroes series were to be made, he hopes it would be done within 10 years or possibly sooner.
He also mentioned that a new game in the series would probably be a departure from previous entries, saying it might be more like an indie game. The change is partially attributed to a younger audience and the fact that the series has been dormant for so long. “No More Heroes fans’ voices are still strong,” Suda51 said, “but young gamers have never heard of it, so I want to create something for them as well.”

Square Enix MMORPG Dragon Quest X is coming to Nintendo’s next platform, codenamed NX.
The game’s producer Yosuke Saito confirmed its development, along with a PS4 version, in an interview with Famitsu while addressing a question about server load with the current releases.
“I think there will be an influx of new players that peaks with the launch of the PS4 and NX editions,” said Saito. “Up until then, rather than the incoming new players, we are doing our best for the people who are playing already.”
Dragon Quest X was actually announced for the NX last year, but Square Enix retracted that statement and instead said that they were merely considering bringing the game to the NX.
The game has been exclusive to Japan since its launch in 2012 and there is no word on whether Square Enix plans to bring the game to the West with the future releases.No comments

It looks like the listing for one of this week’s eShop releases went up a little early. Nintendo.com shows that Mario Super Sluggers will be heading to the Wii U Virtual Console tomorrow for $19.99.
Mario Super Sluggers originally released for the Wii in 2008. It plays similarly to its predecessor, Mario Superstar Baseball on the GameCube, but introduces motion controls for hitting and pitching.No comments
