Wii Sports Club Update Arrives, Probably Doesn't Do Much

"Enhancements to improve the user’s experience"

Wii Sports Club has now been released in full as four separate downloads, while it's also now in stores as a retail disc in Europe — that offering arrives in North America on 25th July.

AeternoBlade Update Brings Two DLC Options, Including "Super Sexy Bikini"

Yes, really...

Arternoblade is exciting in principle — an action platformer with Metroidvania elements — but is arguably a fairly mediocre experience. In some respects we're fortunate it made it out of Japan at all, nevertheless, as it required crowdfunding to make localisation happen. In any case, developer Corecell Technology hasn't given up...

As you may be aware, your 3DS eShop copy of Mutant Mudds now has a free update waiting for installation — this adds the 20 Ghost levels previously included in Mutant Mudds Deluxe on the Wii U; in fact, the update even rebrands your game on the front screen to have that Deluxe title.

Wii Fit U Update Adds New Features, Extra Challenge Courses for Walking and Climbing

"If the weather is good, I hope you manage to go out with your Fit Meter"

Wii Fit U, for a variety of reasons, has struggled to have the same major impact as its predecessors on Wii. That's a pity, as it includes the exercises that made those titles popular in addition to a host of new GamePad-driven mini-games, while the Fit Meter is a handy gadget...

2DS CPU Update Looks Set to Adjust System Security

FCC filings spotted

Following its launch in Western territories on 12th October 2013 — alongside Pokémon X & Y — the 2DS has sold (as of 31st March 2014) 2.2 million units. That's not too bad for a hardware iteration targeted at a rather specific demographic and not given the most high profile of launch campaigns. As a budget tablet-like...
