Nintendo Everything: Rumors
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!
Fire Emblem’s Tharja was set to appear in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS as a collectible trophy. However, it’s rumored (repeat: rumor!) that she was ultimately cut, as her clothing was a bit too revealing and would have forced the game into a higher age rating bracket – something Nintendo wanted to avoid.
Tharja was included in a large batch of leaked Smash Bros. 3DS photos – supposedly from the ESRB – back in August. Now that the game is out worldwide, it’s clear that she isn’t in any version (North America, Europe, Japan).
Check out the gallery above for a few photos of the removed Tharja trophy.
Update: Clarification: this post actually comes from the Super Smash Bros. Facebook page – not Nintendo’s Facebook page. The post is also still published, and can be seen below:
The image above is said to have been posted on Nintendo’s Facebook page earlier today. It was intended to act as a recap for the past week, but it appears that a new stage was included in the roundup.
We’re presented with a shot of Kirby and Pikachu in a mine cart. There’s talk that the stage could be based on either Donkey Kong or the Kirby All-Star’s The Great Cave Offensive mini-game.
The screenshot definitely looks legitimate! We’ll mark this as a rumor just to be safe. For all we know, an official “reveal” could happen this week.
Thanks to Felix for the tip.
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.
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.
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?
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…
