A Week of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS Screens - Issue Twenty Four

Lucario again! Palkia! Mother Brain! More!

Super Smash Bros. keeps creeping closer — thanks to the inevitable passing of time — and we can anticipate the anarchic fun that awaits at home on Wii U and, pleasingly, on our travels with those funky 3DS visuals. Masahiro Sakurai continues to tease us along, via the Super Smash Bros. Director's Room,...

Mother Brain Revealed As An Enormous Super Smash Bros. Assist Trophy

Mother NO!

If Samus in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. is ultimately going to be heavily influenced by the design from Metroid: Other M, then perhaps she'll be less the silent and deadly hunter from the Metroid Prime Trilogy and more prone to flashbacks, fearing the past and generally being full of angst. The latest assist trophy may, then, send our...

Miiverse Gets a Minor Update for Wii U

Buttons now do different things!

Updates to the Wii U and 3DS are a far cry from the days of the Wii and DS, when system updates were comparatively rare and tweaks and improvements to individual apps clearly weren't high on Nintendo's list of priorities. Nowadays the 3DS has frequent system updates — many of which boost "system stability" to...

Here's a pleasing thought. Super Smash Bros. is now a day closer than it was yesterday, and when you wake up tomorrow it'll be closer again. We may not have a release date, but we can be confident of that, which is something — right? Masahiro Sakurai, via the Super Smash Bros. Director's Room,...

If you have the skills, this stuff matters

While Masahiro Sakurai's daily Miiverse posts are entertaining in their own right, in recent weeks he's been revealing more tid-bits of info on features and fighting mechanics in the new Super Smash Bros. titles.

Sakurai Reiterates That There'll Be No Subspace Emissary-Style Story in Super Smash Bros.

Also teases a new 3DS stage

Last summer Masahiro Sakurai stated that there'd be no cinematic story in the new Super Smash Bros. titles coming to the Wii U and 3DS. The reasoning was a little peculiar, as Sakurai-san said the following. Unfortunately, the movie scenes we worked hard to create were uploaded onto the internet. You can only truly wow...

NES Remix was a surprise release from the most recent Nintendo Direct broadcasts, serving up bite-sized challenges and twists on 16 games from the iconic 8-bit system.

This week Nintendo finally delivered Miiverse, along with the Nintendo Network ID and shared eShop fund support, to the 3DS. While it has its flaws — which we'll cover to some degree this weekend — that's to be expected with any launch, especially one such as this that fundamentally shakes up...
