Nintendo Everything: Rumors

At this time this rumor has not been 100% confirmed but it would appear as if the upcoming title Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. will be receiving a demo, available through a download code that will be given out at Gamestop. There has been reports posted to NeoGaf that some stores has already been giving out cards with the codes. There are pictures of the cards that have all been posted at this time so it appears that this could be legit. However the code does not appear to be working currently.

Check out the images below:

Will KOS-MOS from Xenosaga be in Project Treasure?

Bandai Namco announced the mysterious free-to-play Wii U eShop title “Project Treasure” during yesterday’s Nintendo Direct. Not much was shown, as we were mostly left with teases here and there.

We did get to see a few things though – like four partial character portraits. Some fans have done some investigating and may have uncovered the identity of one of these characters.

First, take a look at this snapshot from yesterday’s video:


And now look at this image:


That’s KOS-MOS from Xenosaga. KOS-MOS does resemble one of the characters featured in the portraits. Might she be in Project Treasure?



Rumor: New 3DS promotional ad surfaces, features February 13 launch date

Rumors have been flying about over the past day or so regarding the New 3DS launch date. Last night, Gamnesia reported that the system would be launching on February 13 in North America. We chose to hold off on posting any speculation until some sort of concrete piece of proof surfaced, and it now looks like we have just that.

A promotional ad for the New 3DS surfaced online today. If true, the date mentioned lines up with rumors about a February 13 arrival for the system.

Red and black New 3DS XL colors are prominently featured in the ad. The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate are included as well. Might one (or both) of these titles be coming out on February 13 as well? All should be clear after tomorrow’s Nintendo Direct airs, presumably!



This Marth amiibo apparently comes with an extra head

Okay, I’m sorry. I just had to post this. It’s part hilarious, part stupid. But here you go! It’s a Marth amiibo… with an extra head. The sheer strangeness of it all is one reason why I’m marking this as a rumor.

If you want this particular amiibo, you’ll need to fork over $1,500. I can’t recommend anyone doing that. That being said, I wouldn’t be entirely surprised to see it sell!

Update (12/25/14): Aaaaaaaaand it’s wallpaper. Hopefully you kept those expectations in check!

PlatinumGames posted the following message on Twitter earlier today:

It’s basically a message saying that it’s Christmas Eve, and Rodin will have a present tomorrow. Fans are advised to check Platinum Games’ Facebook page.

Platinum also shared the following English message on Twitter:

I can’t say I know what this is about. It could certainly end up being nothing, so I’d suggest keeping expectations in check!

iNiS made two Ouendan for the DS back in the day. Supposedly, there were plans to create a third entry for Wii.

Unseen64’s Liam Robertson was in communication with “a very trusted source”, who spoke with iNiS’ president and was informed about the company’s intentions to bring Ouendan to Wii. It’s unclear why those plans never materialized. Robertson hopes to learn more about the situation in the future.

Four retailer-exclusive amiibo have already been confirmed for North America. Shulk will only be available at GameStop, Best Buy is the exclusive store for Meta Knight, Lucario is at Toys “R” Us, and Target has Rosalina and Luma.

This might not be the end of retailer-exclusive amiibo, sadly. Check out this message from one Best Buy Canada representative:


Having anything be retailer-exclusive isn’t what anyone wants to see. I guess we’ll see how this plays out!
