The weird and wacky life simulator, Tomodachi Life, has been fairing well in its maiden voyage into Western territories.  Over a month after its release, it's still climbing the charts in the UK, even outstripping Mario Kart 8.  The strong, if unorthodox, advertisements are likely helping it's continue success, and the most recent one throws the Legend of Zelda into the mix.  Check out the video inside!

While last week's Famitsu gave a ton of info regarding Hyrule Warriors, it's easy to forget that it's not the only exciting game on the horizon. Famitsu also provided a couple pages with some details regarding how the Wii Fit Trainer plays, as well as how the Smash Run mode for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS will play out. Check out what our translation team uncovered inside!

Nintendo has always been open to the idea of working with publishers to include exclusive Nintendo themed costumes for hit franchises on their consoles. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 did this by allowing you to unlock costume "sets" and Bayonetta 2 has confirmed a couple of Nintendo themed skins as well. In December of last year, Link's equipment was released as DLC for the Japan version of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate through an exclusive spot distribution; now, Capcom has revealed at SDCC that this content is getting a western release as well.

Sakurai has posted his daily Smash Bros. Pic of the Day. In it, he gives us our first look at the main menu for the 3DS version of the game. He also gave a little bit of information on the functionality of the menu.

A recent Twitter post may have given some hints about Smash Bros. 3DS. It would seem that it is listed as a "Coming Soon" title, but it's the location that makes this interesting.

Every week, Nintendo updates their eShop and separates products into categories. The relevance of this is linked to the fact that Super Smash Bros. is located within the "Wario" category.

In today's Smash Pic of the Day, Masahiro Sakurai has shown off newcomer Robin's Nosferatu spell. The spell is the first ability in the Smash Bros. series to deal damage while also recovering your own, and Sakurai also noted that the attack is much more powerful when landed from behind.

For those of our fans in the UK who have been holding off on buying that shiny new Wii U Deluxe or 3DS XL, now might be the time to finally give in. The Official Nintendo UK store has thrown a piece of Zelda merchandise into the mix, and it's not too shabby. Head past the jump for details. 

This is one of those debates for the ages. There is no right answer and there is no wrong answer, but we're going to argue for our picks because we can. Because we want people to enjoy Zelda games the same way we do. There are a lot of Zelda games out there, specifically of the handheld nature. The question is... which one is the best to you... and why?

Today seems to be the day we post world records, as another one was recently set for A Link Between Worlds. This is an Any% run that chimes in at 1 hour, 32 minutes and 4 seconds. While this time will likely be topped many times over in the future, it is still impressive for a game that hasn't even been out for a full year. Head inside to see the entire run for yourself.
