HEAVY SPOILERS AHEAD!!!!!
The minigames have a whole ton of in-series cameos there.
Vs Lololo & Lalala: Does the stage look an awful lot like Adventure of Lolo series to you?
Nightmare returns as a boss, with his moveset largely the same. Both his ball and Cloaked Nightmare forms return.
Kirby Master, something that I don't think should be called minigame anymore. The enemies and summons came from everywhere of the series - Kirby GC, the anime, Epic Yarn and so on. I'll be giving more details when I have time, but for now, feel free to follow the related videos.
EDIT: Some of the stuff from Kirby Master. In no particularity order.SPOILERS OBVIOUSLY Attacks Dynablade Kirby Mech (Epic Yarn) Gator (Super Star, but a cameo from Revenge of the Gator) Hammer Break Spin (Super Star) Super Spicy Currey Wheel Fighter Laser
Enemies Waddle Dee, Doo Buggsy Mr. Chilly Sweet Stuff (Dreamland 2) Squishy Dedede Robot (Kirby GC) Daroach (Squeeck Squad) Meta Knight w/ all Knights Dark Matter (W/ KDL2 Dark Matter)
It happened a little bit. They've been using the anime design for Dedede's Castle for a while, and one of the games (maybe Mouse Attack?) had the NME monster transporter room as the place where you fight Dedede. Didn't one of Mouse Attacks new abilities come from the anime too? I forget which...

It's a little strange that characters from the anime are starting to pop up now, close to ten years after the anime ended (wow, those years went by fast), but it's a nice celebration of the franchise as a whole rather than just the games.
Kirby Air Ride had almost the entire musical score from the anime, and there were several locations from the anime slipped into City Trial mode, such as Dedede's golf course.
Not exactly. There's a similar ability in the anime called "Iron" where Kirby dresses like an Egyptian pharaoh and turns into a giant gold statue, sorta like Stone. Metal is more like Metal Mario where Kirby's skin turns into silvery steel, increasing his weight.
Nester the Lark: Speaking of the song "Reincarnation," perhaps it might have sounded something like this if the game had gotten an English dub.

nocturnal YL: According to Nintendo's IR calendar, they're going to release their financial information up to December 2020 on 1 Feb. Switch sales (68.30 mil at Sep 2020) may very well surpass that of the 3DS (75.94 mil), but how will it compare to the GBA (81.51 mil)?
Jan 31, 2021 12:10:02 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It's closer to the GBA sales than I thought. Switch hardware sales up to December 2020 is 79.87 mil, while I expected about 78 mil.

nocturnal YL: Also, while they stopped counting 3DS and Wii U hardware sales, software went up from 385.12 mil to 385.85 mil and 103.27 mil to 103.31 mil. Switch software sales went from 456.49 mil to 532.34 mil, surpassing that of NES and Game Boy.

nocturnal YL: So now that I have a capture device, I've been looking at my games and tried to figure out the resolution and frame rate they run at. Trials Rising is 540p30, Project DIVA Mega Mix has the UI at 720p60 and the simpler, single-singer PVs run at 540p60…?
Feb 6, 2021 11:42:34 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: All the Atelier games I've seen so far (Arland 1-4) run at 1080p30, which is a bit surprising as I expected a lower resolution for Lulua. Void Terrarium and Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 and 2 all run at 1080p60. PPT1 also ran at 1080p60 on Wii U, so no surprise.
Feb 6, 2021 11:45:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ In Atelier Lulua, the system UI and even some parts with 3D models (like the synthesis screen) run at full 1080p at 60 fps. That's a huge leap from the previous two games in the series. World map runs at 30 fps though, despite not being intensive.
Feb 8, 2021 11:13:44 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.
Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?
Feb 20, 2021 10:10:09 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.
Feb 23, 2021 17:28:27 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.
