Nintendo Everything: Wii
Thanks to Jake for the tip.
Between March 29 and April 4, Target will be holding a buy 1, get 1 50% off sale. This will apply to all games sold by the retailer.
Although it’s not quite as significant, a separate buy one, get 1 free sale will kick off at Target on March 15. It’s for non-planogram games – essentially clearance titles.
If you need further details about either sale, check out the image above.
Sumo Digital has uploaded a bunch of photos from Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing, showing original concepts and 3D artwork. You can find the full set above.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl modder RED has managed to make Chrom playable in the game. RED messed around with the system files and replaced one of the playable fighters with Chrom’s character model files. Check out the video above for a look at the results.
There’s not one, but three different versions of Rodea: The Sky Soldier. Among the Wii U, 3DS, and Wii versions, the story and foundations of stages are shared, though there are some key differences between each edition. Japanese website 4Gamer recently put up a preview of all three releases and provided information about how each one plays.
If you haven’t been keeping up with Rodea or need a quick refresh, let’s recap the core plot. “Gravity Energy” has caused everything to become mechanized in the Naga Empire, which sets out to invade the floating continent Garuda for the first time in a millennium. When this happened previously, the princess of Naga Empire entrusted her will to the robot Rodea and disappeared. A mechanic named Ion finds Rodea in some ruins (now in present day), who awakens once more. His knowledge of the old princess’ whereabouts reside deep within his memories.
With out of the way, let’s move on to gameplay details!
Nintendo held an event at Best Buy today to show off amiibo and some 3DS games. That wasn’t all though! Nintendo also provided a QR code to obtain a Mii on 3DS for Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma, and a couple of coupons were handed out – one to save $5 on any Wii U/3DS title, and another to save 10 percent on Wii U/3DS/Wii accessories.
We’re not entirely sure yet if the coupon only works at stores that participated in today’s event, or if it works at all Best Buy locations. If we receive a definitive answer, we’ll update this post. You can find a list of stores that were involved with the event here.
Japanese outlet 4Gamer has uploaded screenshots showing the different versions of Rodea: The Sky Soldier. Along with Wii U images, we have first direct-feed screenshots of the 3DS edition, plus Yuji Naka’s original game for Wii. The full set can be found above.
