While the Mario Party 10 amiibo bundle quickly ran out of stock on Amazon, it’s now available once again on the site. You can place an order here. At least at launch, this will be the only way for consumers in North America to obtain the new Mario amiibo.
Nintendo Everything: Wii U
New findings from Smash Bros. Wii U data-mining, including possibility of cut Rhythm Heaven character
Fans have data-mined Super Smash Bros. for Wii U in hopes of finding secret goodies. Based on the latest discoveries, it seems like there were some rather interesting plans for the game.
Source Gaming’s data-mining suggests that the new Smash Bros. could have received a Rhythm Heaven character (Chorus Men) as was originally speculated quite some time ago. There may have also been plans for a Dr. Mario stage.
Here’s the full rundown from Source Gaming:
The Share menu (Sharing Mii Fighters, Snapshots and Video) is present in the Wii U version. The text for it is the same (AFAIK). There are no additional fighter characters. However…
Lastly… C:\SSB4\ui\replace\chr\stock_90 stock_90_Virus_01.nut
This strongly suggests that Dr. Mario was going to receive a stage. Perhaps the three different Viruses had a different effect on the players (Chill could freeze, Weird could give the effect of Lip’s Stick and Fever could give players fire breath). There’s no way to tell as the models and stage have been removed.
Today’s Xenoblade Chronicles X Twitter update was again written by producer Shingo Kawabata, and not Tetsuya Takahashi. Kawabata touched a bit on the game’s sound effects.
In the messages, it’s mentioned that Xenoblade Chronicles X uses an extensive amount of sound effects. They were produced by Sound Racer and Shojiro Nakaoka. Both parties will also be responsible for the international version of the game.
On another note, Takahashi visited Enterbrain a few hours ago. That likely means Xenoblade Chronicles X will be featured in an upcoming issue of Famitsu.
As per usual translation of Japanese text incoming.

Thanks to Jake for the tip.
In the latest issue of Gamesource, Deck13’s creative director Jan Klose was asked about the possibility of bringing Lords of the Fallen to Wii U.
The chances of that happening aren’t very high, as Klose stated that the team probably won’t be doing a Wii U port. Such a move would ultimately be a publisher decision.
Right now I don’t think that we are going to do a Wii U port of the project, even though we love Nintendo devices. But in the end this is a decision of the publisher, whether they think supporting the Wii U is reasonable for their sales or not.
