The next news update on Hyrule Warriors Legends should be coming next week. That’s based on a message from the game’s official Japanese Twitter account, which teased the reveal of additional information.

Toon Link was confirmed as a playable character last month, and we also received the first information and footage pertaining to the new Wind Waker content. Perhaps we’ll hear about at least one new character next week? If so, expect the news to leak via Famitsu in a couple of days.

Update (10/3): Bumped to the top. Have a listen to Totaka’s Song in Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer below.

Original (9/26): Totaka’s Song has become a well-known Easter egg in Nintendo games. The 19 note tune, created by sound designer Kazumi Totaka, is often hidden in game’s like The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Luigi’s Mansion, and Mario Kart 8. It’s been going on for about 25 years.

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer is the latest Nintendo title to feature Totaka’s Song. When you use the DJ KK amiibo card and use the turntable for the first time, you should be able to hear the melody.

Zelda: Tri Force Heroes only lets you play with people in the same region online

The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes contains a few multiplayer options. There’s Download Play which only requires a single copy of the game, local multiplayer with both players owning the title, and online.

We do have to point out one important detail regarding Internet play. Unfortunately, it seems that you can only play with people in the same region. If you’re in the United States and your friend is in Europe for example, it doesn’t sound like you’ll be able to pair up.

Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon debuted in Japan on September 17. During its first few days on the market (about half a week), the game sold 152,000 copies. Sales tracker Media Create reports that Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon saw a sell-through rate of 61.09 percent.

Compared to previous Mystery Dungeon titles, the new 3DS game performed better than Gates to Infinity. That game released in November 2012, and sold 121,000 copies for a 34.31 sell-through of initial stock.

Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon had 94,000 pre-orders, which was around the same range as the previous entry (95,000 pre-orders), showing the series has the loyal support of long time fans. Also, judging by the lack of growth in 3DS sales, Media Create believes it can be assumed that the majority of the userbase already had the system before the game came out as opposed to buying it for the game.

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer launched in Europe today. Quite a number of fans pre-ordered the game from Nintendo UK’s store, but haven’t received their copy yet.

Nintendo is at least trying to make up for the situation by offering those who reserved the title a free download code. Of course, they’ll still be receiving the physical copy as well.

Here’s the message from Nintendo:

The physical product will be on the way today if not already, keep an eye out for the dispatch notification email for further details.

Your download code is: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

As an additional gesture you can redeem the code below at the Nintendo Official UK store for a free pack of the Animal Crossing amiibo cards, just add them to your basket then enter the code at checkout.
