Polygon is reporting that Disney Interactive is in the process of readying Star Wars figures as part of the launch of the new Disney Infinity game. Assuming the site’s report can be believed, the first Star Wars figures will release by the time the upcoming film hits theaters later in the year.

That’s not the only Disney-Infinity-related news to have come out today. A bunch of new figures seem to have leaked for Disney Infinity 3.0, including Olaf, Mulan, Inside-Out characters, and more.

Disney Infinity 3.0 is definitely something that will be happening later this year. Although no official announcements have been made on that front just yet, the first round of toys relating to the game may have leaked ahead of a reveal.

Chinese retailer Taobao recently put up various images for Frozen’s Olaf, Tron Legacy’s Sam Flynn and Quorra, classic Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Mulan, and five characters from Inside Out. Infinity Inquirer picked up on the product listings, but the site’s post was taken down “at the request of Disney Interactive”. Taobao also removed all references to the new characters.

We’ll keep you updated as the situation develops.

Update by Brian: Cutting Room Floor, a website that specializes in unused/cut content, has been able to verify the authenticity of the Ryu sound files (thanks Anthony):

Of course, this doesn’t necessarily confirm that Ryu will be included as upcoming Smash Bros. DLC. We’ll just have to wait and see how everything pans out!

According to a poster on Reddit, who is claiming to be a part of the 3DS modding scene, there has been code discovered buried in the latest update to go live for Super Smash Bros. that would lead some to believe more characters will be to come in future DLC. It would appear that sound files have been interpreted as clues for two possible future additions.

One file is a Victory sound for Roy from the Fire Emblem series. The second one is also a sound file that includes the Ryu music from Street Fighter II. At this stage this is purely speculation as Nintendo has been known to leave unused data in games in the past.

We are sure we will see more DLC in the future for Super Smash. Bros. but for now this is just a rumor.



Update: Nope – Rumor: Next Mario Kart 8 DLC pack to include Baby Park, Neo Bowser City

Update: The dream seems to be dead (thanks EdLambdaTeos). This goes back as far as November of last year, with a GameFAQs member claiming to have found a file with similar contents as what’s posted below. The same user said last week that he made the whole thing up. Doh!

Mario Kart 8 has a file system with a listing of tracks and corresponding streaming audio. Following the release of the game’s first round of DLC, there were 8 tracks in the pack and 13 entries.

Here’s a listing of what we received from the initial batch of downloadable content:

WII_WARIOSMINE = Wii Wario’s Gold Mine
WU_DRAGONROAD = Dragon Driftway
WU_EXCITEBIKE = Excitebike Arena
WU_HYRULE = Hyrule Circuit
WU_ICEPARK = Ice Ice Outpost

These tracks were also included, but did not show up as DLC:

WU_ANIMAL = Animal Crossing

Could these tracks be featured in the next wave of Mario Kart 8 DLC? This is complete speculation at the moment, but if it’s accurate, we could be seeing tracks like Neo Bowser City and Baby Park. People are also wondering if “Metro” could be implying “Metroid”, but I’m not too sure at the moment!



Update: Restock rumored for summer – Rumor: Meta Knight amiibo discontinued at Best Buy

Update: Double rumor! There’s now speculation that Meta Knight will return sometime this summer at Best Buy. A corporate-level employee at the retailer has apparently said that the restock will be happening, but a date hasn’t been shared yet.

The Meta Knight amiibo appears to have been discontinued at Best Buy.

On Saturday, Best Buy listed the figure as “Active”. But today, that changed to “Deleted”. Because items tend to stay “Deleted” once they’ve reached that status, the assumption is that Meta Knight won’t be returning to Best Buy in the future.

We’ll let you know if we hear anything official about the Meta Knight amiibo going forward.

Smash Bros. Fighter Ballot may only be limited to Nintendo characters

During this week’s Nintendo Direct, it was revealed that there is now a Fighter Ballot for Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS. Fans across the world can submit votes for characters they’d like to see in the game, and Nintendo will take feedback into account when developing new roster additions.

There is one important thing that we may have to consider if a Facebook post from Nintendo is any indication. The post below has been making the rounds lately, which seems to indicate that the Smash Bros. Fighter Ballot may only be limited to first-party Nintendo characters.


If the above post is what many people are currently assuming, then Nintendo won’t be considering any third-party characters. So much for Banjo!

Thanks to Jake for the tip.



Atlus teasing Attack on Titan 3DS localization announcement?

Atlus posted an… interesting message on its Twitter and Facebook accounts today. Based on what was shared, it’s looking likely that we’re due for a localization announcement of Attack on Titan for 3DS soon.

Here’s what was added to Atlus’ social media pages today:

There are a couple of references to Attack on Titan here – notably the opening lyrics and one of the anime episodes.

Remember: Attack on Titan was rated in Australia a few months ago. When that listing popped up, Atlus was listed as publisher.

Rumor: GTA V was once prototyped for Wii U

Rumor has it that Grand Theft Auto V was once prototyped for Wii U. That comes from Unseen64’s Liam Robertson, who tends to be in the know when it comes to cancelled projects and development secrets.

Robertson was in touch with “a reliable source”, who claims that the prototype “was an earlier version of GTA V.” It was apparently a brief period when this took place. Sadly, further details are unknown.

Rockstar indicated back in November 2012 that the company was open to bringing Grand Theft Auto V to various platforms such as Wii U. Nothing came from that, however.
