New content arrived in the StreetPass Mii Plaza this week through the 3DS update. Users now have access to items such as new games (through paid DLC) and extra puzzles.
Oddly, 3DS owners in North America haven’t received this content yet. Only users in Europe and Japan were granted access. So what about North America?
The official word from Nintendo is that they’re “looking into” the new StreetPass Mii Plaza content for the states. Not exactly any kind of definitive answer, but you’d have to think that it will head over eventually.
A few more comments from Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai have popped up through a GameSpot interview, and you can find them below.
Sakurai’s latest remarks are more general – talk about the overall Smash Bros. series, the fighting genre, and more. We do get a couple of nuggets about the Wii U/3DS games though, like customization and their speed.
David Wise hasn’t worked with Nintendo in a few years. And it’s been a really long time he contributed to a Donkey Kong Country game. So you might be wondering, how’d Nintendo get Wise on board for Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze?
Producer Kensuke Tanabe explained:
“I worked with David, many, many years ago, and have stayed in contact ever since. He’s actually a friend of mine. So, as we approached this particular project, he became available.”
“So I picked up the phone and said ‘Hey David! You have some time? Would you like to help us out with Tropical Freeze?’ And he jumped at the chance. It was a coincidence that he was available at the time… he wasn’t prior [for Donkey Kong Country Returns] and we couldn’t be happier.”
Tropical Freeze’s music will be completely original, but Tanabe teased: “Yet, there will be some familiarities… you can hear that it is David Wise.”
