Masahiro Sakurai has posted the latest Super Smash Bros. for Wii U screenshot, showing Riki from Xenoblade as an Assist Trophy. You can find the image below.
Update: Bumped to the top. Systems are back in stock… for now.
It’s looking like the New 3DS won’t be heading west for awhile. While the system is heading to Japan on October 11 – less than two months – North America and Europe won’t be seeing it until 2015.
Thankfully, there are ways to purchase the New 3DS even if you’re not in Japan. Playasia has now opened pre-orders at the following links:
Of course, since these are Japanese systems, they will only play Japanese games. But if you’re like me, you might be pretty tempted to pick up a New 3DS at launch…
In this episode of Around the Water Cooler, Scott looks towards his hopes for the future – F-Zero, Star Fox, and more. We also feature comments about the previous week’s Mario Kart topic.
To close things out, we want to hear from you about the following: What are your hopes for the future of Nintendo? Comment on YouTube or the main site, and you could be featured in the next episode!
Nintendo made a pretty huge announcement on Friday… the New 3DS! Austin and I talk all about it, and there’s a bit of discussion about some of the other news that came in on the same day.
Mario Maker is unique in that it will allow players to create their own Mario levels for the first time. This led EDGE to ask Nintendo producer Takashi Tezuka in its latest issue if he believes the Wii U game could harm sales of future Mario titles.
Tezuka said in response:
“I think part of the fun of Mario is how you play and experience a series of courses, with boss battles, too, all of which get progressively harder. Mario developers build up the whole world, making sure the different courses all fit well together. I don’t think the overall fun you can have with an entire Mario game is the same as playing a single course made in Mario Maker, and of course future Mario games will include lots of new features… so I don’t think the two will ever be in competition.”
Mario Maker will be coming to Wii U in the first half of 2015. Players will be able to use assets based on the original Super Mario Bros. and New Super Mario Bros., though other classic Mario titles will likely be featured as well.
