Over on Amazon Germany, the retailer has opened up pre-orders for the Zelda: Breath of the Wild Champions amiibo 4-pack again. Orders can be placed here.

The good news is that Amazon Germany will ship the amiibo to the US. If you’ve been on the hunt for the 4-pack, now’s your chance to secure a pre-order.

The Nintendo UK store has opened up reservations for the Zelda: Breath of the Wild Champions amiibo. You can reserve it a 4-pack bundle here. The new amiibo are slated for November 10.

Nintendo has isssued a new announcement covering additional details about the Nintendo World Championships 2017.

First, Metroid: Samus Returns is confirmed to be in the tournament. Also, along with the 16 qualifying players, 8 players from across the country and around the world have been invited, including talented speed-runners, tournament players and online personalities from the United States, Europe, Canada and Mexico. Actor and Super Smash Bros. tournament player Asa Butterfield and WWE Superstar Bayley will be present.

Final Fantasy’s main theme is among the most iconic music in all of gaming. In a new video, composer Nobuo Uematsu discussed his inspirations and development process in coming up with the composition. View it below.

The latest Pokemon episode was a landmark of sorts. After many years, Brock and Misty were brought back and were featured prominently. While that in itself was great news, the show also had a treat for longtime Pokemon players.

Fans noticed a pair of homages in the episode that are tributes to the original Pokemon games. Brock and Misty both had their poses from the titles on Game Boy, as pictured in this post.

GameStop is currently offering a real life Cappy Hat online through Bio World Merchandising. It’s available now, with orders shipping within 24 hours of being placed. The hat is priced at $20 and can be ordered here.


HORI made it known that a Fighting Commander controller would be released with the Super Famicom a few weeks ago. That same controller has been confirmed in North America.

Amazon’s listing shows the the SNES Classic Edition Fighting Commander wireless controller is arriving later this week. It has turbo functions for each button as well as a slow-motion function, plus a six-button layout.

Amazon seemed to open pre-orders early today for a very brief period, but sold out. GameStop does have it here and will apparently begin shipping immediately.

The Super NES Classic Edition has a couple of hidden features worth knowing about. One lets you access the home menu whereas the other lets you reset the game you’re playing.

If you have a Wii Classic Controller, you can plug that right into the SNES Classic Edition. Then you only need to press the relevant button to return to the home menu.

As for one thing that doesn’t require any separate controllers, you can reset any of the games included on the SNES Classic Edition. Just hold the “L”, “R”, “select”, and “start” buttons for a second or two. That will easily let you reset the game.

Nintendo has been publishing weekly interviews about games included in the Super NES Classic Edition in preparation of the hardware’s launch later this week. For the latest discussion, Super Mario Kart is the focus. Tadashi Sugiyama and Hideki Konno were brought in to talk about the SNES game.

Sugiyama and Konno talked about Super Mario Kart’s origins, including how Shigeru Miyamoto’s request to create a 2-player F-Zero led to the start of the project. They also explained how Mario Kart characters ended up being inserted, the various items, and more.

You can read the full interview with Sugiyama and Konno below.

The NES Classic Edition and Super NES Classic Edition are two different pieces of hardware, but they aren’t entirely separate. You might be interested to hear that both controllers can be used with either system. That means the SNES Classic controller works with the NES Classic (and vice versa).

One thing to keep in mind is that the NES controller lacks a number of buttons necessary for SNES games. You shouldn’t have any problems using the SNES controller with the NES Classic Edition, however.
