Nintendo did not disclose any official numbers for Bayonetta 2 as part of the latest NPD results. However, an important piece of sales data appears to have leaked out.

NeoGAF member “Dartastic” claims that Bayonetta 2 sold 68,000 units in the U.S. during October. We’re generally wary of posting NPD leaks that don’t originate from creamsugar, who is considered to be a reliable source for sales figures. However, Dartastic’s post was apparently verified by a moderator of the NeoGAF community.

Bayonetta 2 launched on October 24. Since NPD’s reporting period ended on November 1, the game only saw about a week of sales.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D is making a number of improvements to the original game. Nintendo hasn’t detailed all of the changes, but we’re aware of things like enhanced visuals, an improved boss battle, and the inclusion of fishing. Another improvement may concern the handling of Clock Town.

Those who played Zelda: Majora’s Mask on the N64 are well aware of the different sections of Clock Town. There’s North, South, East, and West areas. Each time you head into a new section of the town, you’re presented with a brief loading period.

For Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D, these loading sections may have been eliminated entirely for a more streamlined experience. Check out the shot below:

The credits of LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham seem to tease the future of LEGO video games. At one point, players are shown a Tyrannosaurus Rex with the Jurassic Park theme song.

We do know that LEGO will be making Jurassic World sets in 2015. There has been speculation about a video game as well. Maybe we’ll hear something next year then…

There’s a bit of talk going around regarding a possible new update for Wii U. It appears that a few console owners are seeing evidence of new firmware in the “Download Management” area, but it has not been successfully downloaded. It would seem that the download was initiated by Nintendo for a small sample of users, though was then pulled soon after.

Is Shadow of the Eternals in development at Quantum Entanglement Entertainment?

Shadow of the Eternals was an interesting project. It was created as a spiritual successor to Eternal Darkness, and even had Denis Dyack – the director of the GameCube game – on board for the new title.

Precursor Games hoped to fund Shadow of the Eternals on Kickstarter, but failed twice. That ultimately led to the studio putting its game on hold indefinitely.

It’s rather interesting then that Shadow of the Eternals has returned (potentially anyway) in an unexpected manner. IGN uploaded the trailer above to its YouTube channel a short while ago without any sort of announcement regarding the game’s return. The video also showcases “Quantum Entanglement Entertainment” as the apparent developer.

Who are these guys? A quick Google search yields no results. Is Shadow of the Eternals back in development with Quantum Entanglement Entertainment at the helm? Has Precursor morphed into this new studio? Hopefully we’ll receive some answers soon!



More Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS DLC speculation

There’s more talk going around about Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS potentially supporting DLC.

Messages have apparently been found in the 3DS version that could be used to create data for downloadable content, for instance. Other recently-discovered code could allow for character and stage DLC to be loaded.

Rumor has it that the shop will be titled “Notifications Shop” – at least in Japanese.

Will any of this pan out? Will Smash Bros. actually get any DLC? Only time will tell…

Is The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth coming to Wii U? The snapshot above would indicate that to be the case!

What you’re actually seeing is about an image taken from a new clip found on Nicalis’ YouTube channel. View it below:

Much of the speculation regarding The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth for Nintendo platforms has been focused on a potential 3DS version. It’d certainly be a surprise if the game lands on Wii U instead!
