amiibo tap: Nintendo’s Greatest Bits came to Japan earlier this week. We recently found out that the app is coming to Europe next week, and we can now say the same for North America.

Nintendo will launch amiibo tap: Nintendo’s Greatest Bits through the North American Wii U eShop on April 30. You can find a brief overview below.

amiibo tap: Nintendo’s Greatest Bits (confirmed for April 30): Download the game from the Nintendo eShop for Wii U, then tap any amiibo to your Wii U GamePad. You’ll unlock a random playable three-minute scene from a classic NES or Super NES game. It’s a cool way to extend the playability of amiibo.

With today’s Xenoblade Chronicles X presentation, some fans were hoping that we’d hear about a release date for the west. That definitely did not happen, but Nintendo did reconfirm its original, vague timeframe for release. Xenoblade Chronicles X will launch “later this year.” Beyond that, we have no idea when!

Update: Nintendo said during the Treehouse portion of the presentation that the localization is a work in progress. I have a feeling that the “Skells” name will stick (and probably the continent names as well), but keep that in mind!


During today’s Xenoblade Chronicles X presentation, Nintendo confirmed the English names of the game’s five continents. They are as follows:

Primordia (the first area)
Noctilum (the Forest of Nightglow)
Oblivia (the Valley of Oblivion)
Sylvalum (the Continent of White Trees)
Cauldros (the Continent of Black Steel)

The “Dolls”, which are Xenoblade Chronicles X’s mechs, are also getting a name change. They’ll be called “Skells” in the English version.
