I need to throw a shout out to Nintendo.
Why the attention?
Well, I’m impressed to see Nintendo put some effort into creating engaging experiences using HTML5. My personal favourite is the Mario Kart 8 Party Starter built on a canvas, or the “surprise” that happens when you click the question mark box (see above).
I know it’s nothing major for an entertainment company create an interactive HTML5 web site and application, but I feel as though this is something big for a company like Nintendo to do this.
I’ve loved Nintendo for years, since I was a kid in fact. But (like many other video game companies) websites are not engaging, rather just informative places.
There’s nothing wrong with that, as the web is just that a whole whack of documents.
But to see a big player, like Nintendo, take a leap into the rich and engaging modern web, I need to highlight it and applaud them for their effort.
Next Steps for Nintendo
Thanks for Playing. ~ DW
