About a month ago we reported that information had been found surrounding DLC making it's way into Super Smash Bros. for 3DS in the form of stages. Hackers haven't stopped digging since then, and are still delving deep into the game's code, trying to spot any hints that may confirm DLC support or functionality. Recently they found further 'evidence' suggesting that a DLC store will eventually be present. Another idea fanatics have at the moment is that...

With Halloween just around the corner, Nintendo decided to get into a spooky mood and released new, Halloween related 3DS home screen themes. One of these themes is based entirely around The Legend of Zelda, and more specifically the first installement. On the 3DS' upper screen the theme features blue Keese and their more rare form, red keese, along side a single Stalfos toppped off with an orange background, purple highlights...

Today, Nintendo decided to launch an avalanche of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U screeshots at us, showing off mostly Ness', Wario's and Falco's appearances in the HD version of the game. I personally can't get enough of the detailed textures, especially noting how fresh and clear the floor tiles and backgrounds look. The other character models and their expressions are also worth mentioning, seemingly oozing personality from...

Sakurai continues to talk weekly to Famitsu about Super Smash Bros. This time around it's about why the 3DS version came out before the Wii U edition, along with some brief tidbits about Final Smash changes and 3DS stage decision they had to make due to hardware limitations. It's some interesting insight into the development behind both versions of the game. He also seems to confirm that the Wii U version of the game is going to have a lot more game play modes than the 3DS version...

Yesterday we reported about the release of September's NPD report and its relevance to Hyrule Warriors. The e-mail contained more than just Hyrule Warriors news though, and presented us with some interesting information about Super Smash Bros.' US sales figures. Although they might not be extremely suprising, taking into account that Super Smash Bros. is widely...

Today's news is starting off with a bang, have two all new modes for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U revealed a bit earlier than Nintendo likely planned. While we know a Smash Direct is coming soon for the Wii U version of the game, we now know what will likely be two new modes that will be shown off. I know some fans felt Sakurai and company were slacking with this version of Smash, but if these modes are any indication... things are looking up. We have the full rundown for you straight from Amazon in case Nintendo goes in and edits it out...

Have you been dreaming of a steam punk world? How about an even faster travel method than Epona? It appears that Eiji Aonuma likes the Master Cycle in Mario Kart 8 so much that he wants to implement it into a game he is working on (which we all know right now is Zelda U). While this initially seems like a silly notion, this is the series that has had magical talking sail boats, a steam boat, and even a train. Add on that the series has lasers and other mystical (and mechanical) elements, it may not be as out of place as one would think. Here is what Eiji Aonuma had to say on Miiverse when talking...

Although the Internet has been fully aware of the Super Smash Bros. For Nintendo 3DS and Wii U "secret" fighter list for a while now, it hasn't stopped Nintendo from turning a blind-eye to this and wanting to release the characters in their own time. Nintendo has been slowly releasing information on the secret fighters, mostly screenshots, onto their official website, the most recent of which featuring Ganondorf from the The Legend of Zelda franchise, and R.O.B. (Robotic Operating Buddy) - the short-lived Nintendo Entertainment System peripheral...

New Nintendo 3DS and 3DS LLSales figures are in for the launch of the New Nintendo 3DS in Japan and it happened to do really well. In fact, so did Super Smash Bros. for 3DS... as it continues to show strong sales week to week since launch. It didn't top the charts in Japan, but it landed at #2 with 76,392 units sold. The New Nintendo 3DS naturally did a lot better during it's launch period (2 days recorded) where the regular edition sold 70,050 while the LL edition sold 164,756 units. This is according to the the Media Create sales. For those curious, Famitsu had them chiming in at 61,151 and 172,332 respectively. Either way it...
