Star Fox Zero – “Intercepted Terrain Transmission” commercial

A third Star Fox Zero commercial has now been uploaded to Nintendo of America’s YouTube page. Falco is featured quite a bit in this one!
Here’s the advert:
Update: No new game – Momotaro Dentetsu game in the works for Wii U and 3DS
Update (5/4): Bumped to the top. There appears to have been sort of mix-up. During tomorrow’s stream, 2006’s Momotaro Dentetsu 16: Hokkaido Daiidou no Maki will be shown. The Niconico page likely had an error. LEGO Marvel Avengers (Wii U / 3DS / PS4 / PS3 / PSV) was shown during the last broadcast, so Denjin Gacha probably copy-pasted the previous stream’s description when writing the description for the latest broadcast, and did not change the platforms for its featured game.
Original (5/3): The Momotaro Dentetsu series began way back in the late 1980s. Konami has now announced that a new entry in the board game-style franchise is coming to both Wii U and 3DS in addition to PlayStation platforms. This is the first time we’re seeing the IP since Momotaro Dentetsu World on DS back in 2012.
Details on the latest Momotaro Dentetsu title have yet to be revealed. However, it will be featured on the next Denjin Gacha Niconico live stream on May 5 at 9 PM Japan time.

Rumor: Sonic on the way to LEGO Dimensions
Posted on 18 hours ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Rumors, Wii U | 4 Comments | 0 Likes
Last September, a list of LEGO Dimensions “Series 2” set names appeared with code words. One of these had an “S” label, which prompted some to speculate that it could be for Sonic.
LEGO insider Just2Good dropped a hint that the label was referring to SEGA’s mascot back when the situation was transpiring. And yesterday, a second LEGO insider going by the name CM4Sci mentioned on EuroBricks stating that Sonic’s on his way to the game before adding, “I also know for a fact Sonic is in if that confirms anything”.
Brick Inquirer – who knows much more about these things than I do – says “CM4Sci’s word is about as good as it comes.” We’ll still consider Sonic’s appearance a rumor for now, but it’d definitely be interesting to see him in LEGO Dimensions. Perhaps this is one way in which SEGA will be celebrating Sonic’s 25th anniversary?
As for other hints pertaining to Series 2, Super Girl and Green Arrow are also rumored. Their additions would make quite a bit of sense!
