Super Smash Bros. for 3DS could be getting downloadable content – at least for stages – if a recent discovery is anything to go by.

Check out the following text that was found in the game’s ROM dump:

Set the stages that won’t appear, even when selection is set to random.
All Off
All On
Turn all stages off.
Make all stages available when using random stage selection.
See stages you have downloaded.
See all regular stages.
Select OFF to exclude this stage from random stage selection.
Select ON to include this stage in random stage selection.

Fans are saying that this matches the stage selection in additional rules perfectly. You’ll also see the missing square in the image above, which is just like in the stage selection screen. There’s speculation that this is where you’ll be able to select DLC.

The signs are certainly there, but if/when Nintendo confirms DLC for Smash Bros. remains to be seen.

Watch Dogs will be heading to Wii U on November 18, if Ubisoft Mexico’s Facebook page is to be believed.

A message posted on the page reads:

We’ll follow up with Ubisoft’s US branch to see if the date can be verified. Until then, consider this a rumor.

Rumor: Next Level Games worked on a Metroid prototype before Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon

Before Next Level Games started work on Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, the studio was working on “a completely different project for Nintendo”. This is known thanks to an Iwata Asks interview published last year. Perhaps the project in question was a new Metroid game.

Concept art was recently uncovered from the profile of a former Next Level Games employee, which includes shots of an apparent Metroid prototype. Since the staffer left Next Level in late 2009, it’s possible that this was the prototype the studio was working on prior to Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon. Sadly, we may never know the full story!

Italian retailer Gamestart is listing a new 3DS XL bundle for Europe.

A package featuring Luigi’s Mansion 2 is apparently on the way, which includes a black 3DS XL. This is apparently set for release on October 3.

Also rumored is a pink 2DS with Tomodachi Life. A packaging shot isn’t available at this time.

Until Nintendo makes official announcements, consider these two bundles unconfirmed for the time being.

Nintendo put up listings for the various Amiibo figures on its online store today. What’s particularly interesting is that each page includes a “November” release date.

As many of you know, Nintendo has said that Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will release alongside Amiibo. Might this mean that the game will launch in November?

Rumor: Toys “R” Us memos point to LEGO Jurassic World game

Warner Bros. Interactive has given us LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Harry Potter, and plenty more. Now it looks like the company could be producing a LEGO Jurassic World game as well.

Website Jurassic World managed to get its hands on two memos within the Toys “R” Us system from April and July. They reveal that a “video game contract” is in the works for LEGO Jurassic World.

As nothing is officially confirmed, we’ll consider this a rumor for the time being. But LEGO Jurassic World could be pretty neat if this turns into something concrete…

Rumor: New 3DS doubles up on RAM, and almost doubles VRAM

The New 3DS will be more powerful than its predecessor thanks to a beefed up CPU. It also seems that the system could offer extra RAM and VRAM.

As reported by 3dbrew:

Based on disassembly of certain sysmodules for code added/changed with in the 8.0.0-18 update, it appears that the “New 3DS” has the following changes:

They extended FCRAM from 128MB to 256MB.
They added another VRAM (?) of 4MB.

Rumor: North America will be receiving a Smash Bros. 3DS XL as well, two black Wii U bundles incoming

Update: We’ll just throw this in as well as opposed to making a new post. werejack is claiming that two new Wii U bundles for North America – LEGO City: Undercover and New Super Mario Bros. U – are also on the way.



Earlier this month, Nintendo announced a special Smash Bros.-themed 3DS XL for Europe. A similar system has yet to be confirmed for North America, though it’s possible that we’ll be hearing something in September.

Twitter user “werejack” claims that Nintendo has something planned for the states as well, but “it might be different from the Europe one.” He suggests that the North American Smash Bros. 3DS XL will be “bluer.”

We normally wouldn’t post this sort of conjecture, but werejack actually leaked news of the Zelda: Wind Waker HD Wii U bundle, black 3DS XL, and red/blue Pokemon 3DS XL systems prior to their announcements last year. Hopefully werejack’s latest tweets are accurate as well!

Taiko no Tatsujin URL hints at new Wii U game

Bandai Namco has already released one entry in the Taiko no Tatsujin series for Wii U. A second game could now be in the works as well based on a recent discovery.

An official Taiko no Tatsujin URL, wiiu2.taiko-ch.net, currently indicates that the website is a “test page”. That’s exactly the same message users were presented with prior to the first Taiko no Tatsujin Wii U reveal. Also, if you try another domain such as wiiu3.taiko-ch.net, the page simply won’t load. This suggests that the “wiiu2″ subdomain was created with an intended use.

So is this a sign that a second Taiko no Tatsujin Wii U game will be announced soon? A reveal around TGS would certainly make sense.
