Two new costumes are now available in Super Mario Maker. After finishing the new Event Course, players can unlock outfits based on Hello Kitty and My Melody.
Here’s an overview of the course:
Sanrio characters Kitty and Melody find themselves in the world of Super Mario! At first it seems like a fun place, with cute blocks shaped like apples and flowers. But they’d better be careful, because there’s danger up ahead! Won’t you help them find their way safely to the goal?
And some footage:
Note that you need to complete the level twice in order to obtain both costumes.

Zelda Wii U to have two extended demos at E3, media asked to set aside 90 minutes
Posted on 1 day ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U | 21 Comments | 0 Likes
Update: We now have confirmation on this (thanks immewnity). The email sent out to press does make mention of the “two extended demos” that will let them “step into the wilds of Hyrule and explore some of the grasslands, forests and mountains that they’ve been given mere glimpses of to date.” Media are recommended to set aside 1-1.5 hours.
Zelda Wii U will be the one and only game playable from Nintendo at E3 2016 next month. Outlet finder.com.au now claims to have some information about its appearance.
The site notes, “Nintendo is informing media that there will be two extended demos of the Wii U version to play at the booth and are being asked to set aside 90 minutes to make the most of the gameplay.” I’ve not heard about this personally, though that doesn’t mean that the report from finder.com.au is inaccurate. We’ll go ahead and mark this one as a rumor to be on the safe side.
Inti Creates CEO is not happy with the new Mighty No. 9 trailer
Mighty No. 9 publisher Deep Silver uploaded a new trailer for the game yesterday. To say that it wasn’t received well might be an understatement. Have a look at the YouTube page here, and you’ll truly understand how fans have responded to the video.
Inti Creates CEO Takuya Aizu is none too pleased with the new Mighty No. 9 trailer either. Aizu recently put up the message shown above on his Twitter page yesterday. Perhaps Deep Silver should have consulted with Inti Creates, as they were behind the project’s development.
Minecraft: Wii U Edition adding new “Battle” mini-game next month
Next month, all Minecraft users on consoles will have access to a new mini-game: “Battle”. The free DLC has players battling it out against each other in a deathmatch, and comes as the first of various mini-games on the way.
Here’s an official overview:
Battle pits players against one another in a fight for survival, as they race to snatch weapons and resources from chests, dance over each arena’s unique perils and stave off hunger pangs. We’ve made the mini game specifically with console players and couch-based competition in mind: it supports up to four players in splitscreen and eight players online, either by invitation or using the in-game matchmaking system. We wanted it to be super-accessible and fast-paced, so we’ve tried to keep the focus on rapid tactical thinking and combat: there’s no need to craft anything here, and you can loot inventories and equip armour with the tap of a button.
Battle will be added to Minecraft sometime next month. Additional maps will be available in the future for $2.99 each.
