Final and one of many largest issues that it introduced in the course of the presentation is that the sport will help the GameCube controller. Followers of the outdated, blocky console had been delighted that they will play the sport the best way they need.
However in keeping with newly revealed emblems filed in Japan, GameCube controller help will not be the one factor Nintendo is planning this yr. Japanese Nintendo stories that the corporate has filed three completely different emblems for the GameCube and that these emblems particularly pertain to online game software program and online game machines. It’s necessary to level out that these emblems don’t reference sport merchandising.
Unsurprisingly, the information of the emblems has despatched rumors flying within the Nintendo fan group. One widespread idea is that Nintendo is getting ready a GameCube Basic Version for launch.
