    I think the announcement of Cadence was one of the biggest Nintendo news of the year. Allowing one of their top tier IPs to be utilized in conjunction with an indie developer shows just how much Nintendo has been progressing as a company.

      We agree. It is very exciting to see these sorts of changes in Nintendo! I would assume that this broadening of horizons will only bring good things for them.
