When the Super Famicom Mini launches in Japan early next month, HORI will be putting out a special controller. The Fighting Commander controller was popular back in the day, and a new version is being created for the system.

The Fighting Commander for the Super Famicom Mini uses a 2.4GHz frequency automatic switch method so you can leisurely play without having to worry about the cord. It has two levels of Slow Motion Switch. If this Slow switch is set to 1 or 2, it will cause the game to be in a slow motion mode where it will continuously pause. There are also switches to activate Turbo or Hold mode for each of L, R, Y, X, B, and A buttons. It can launch a turbo of 24 presses per second.

The Fighting Commander controller for the Super Famicom Mini will be available on October 6. Pricing is set at 2,678 yen.


Update: Looks like it’s already sold out. Hopefully some of you had success!

Original: Amazon France has the SNES Mini up for pre-order at the moment. If you’re interested, reserve it here. Regardless of what the page says, this should ship to the US.

The end of Miiverse is quickly drawing near. Once November rolls in, the social networking service will be no more. A bunch of games will be impacted by its closure, but the community itself will also be shuttered.

Nintendo is allowing members to save their own posts. Miiverse as we know it will be gone, however. So what will happen to all of the lovely artwork and user posts created over the years?

The Mega Man movie is something we’ve heard about for awhile, though it has only become more concrete in recent months. That being said, it’s still a long ways off. Masayori Oka, who produced the Death Note adaptation for Netflix, gave an update in an interview with Collider.

Oka mentioned that the team “just started” working on the Mega Man movie. The project is in the early stages, and the script is currently being worked on.

Oka said:

Supper Mario Broth has posted a scan from a 2000 Nintendo Power interview with Hiroyuki Takahashi and Syugo Takahashi of Camelot. In it, the two developers discussed why Wario and Waluigi don’t have female partners like Mario and Luigi have Peach and Daisy in Mario Tennis.

The Takahashi brothers explained how they wanted Luigi to have his own partner similar to Mario and Peach. However, Shigeru Miyamoto ended up suggesting Daisy. They also wanted Wario and Waluigi to have girlfriends, but Miyamoto wasn’t interested.

Here’s the full excerpt of the Nintendo Power interview:
