title update

Shovel Knight will soon be getting another update. Version 2.2 is already out on Steam, and will be published on other platforms in the near future, including Wii U and 3DS.

Shovel Knight’s latest update introduces a few small aspects, adjustments, and fixes. Head past the break for the full patch notes.

Last week, Super Mario Maker received its 1.30 update. This added some new elements and compatibility with the Bookmark portal site. Today, Nintendo has followed that up with another small patch.

Super Mario Maker’s 1.31 update is now available to download. You can grab it by booting up the game, or wait for it to be downloaded automatically.

Given the small increase in the version number, there’s not too much behind today’s update. Nintendo says some problems have been fixed so that the game can be played more comfortably.


298MB of free space is required to download the update.


Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition’s recent update is due out in North America today. However, it turns out that it’s also now available in Europe as well. You’ll need 620 blocks for the download, which amounts to about 77.5MB.


A new Miiverse update went live this week. There aren’t any major additions, but there are a couple of changes.

First, for the Wii U, 3DS, and PC version of Miiverse, users now need to choose a tag when creating a message in the Discussion section. Options include “Hint”, “Question”, “Looking for Teammate”, and more.

Also new to the PC version of Miiverse are links to different game pages on Nintendo’s Japanese website. These pages have basic information about different titles and allow consumers to make purchases. Note that this feature is only live in Japan at the moment.


Update: Added in a Miiverse message from Aonuma after the break.

After the big 2.0.0 update earlier this month, another new patch is now available for The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes. Version 2.1.0 mainly features the introduction of hero points.

Below are the full patch notes:

  • Adds a new feature, hero points, that helps with progression through the game
  • Collecting hero points adds effects to the Bear Minimum Digs outfit, and you can also receive materials to create outfits you don’t have from the Street Merchant
  • Hero points can be obtained by:
    • Completing a bonus challenge or a level that you did not select during online play
    • Completing a level (regardless of what level or bonus challenge) in Local Play or Download Play
  • Introduces additional enhancements to improve the user’s experience and enjoyment

Super Mario Maker’s latest update is now available. Version 1.30 can be accessed by booting up the game, or allowing your Wii U system to download it automatically. You can find the full patch notes after the break.

Accompanying today’s update is the introduction of the Bookmark portal site, which can be accessed here. This lets players search for courses by using a computer, tablet or smartphone.

When Nintendo pushes out updates for the Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS games, we do receive patch notes. But when it comes to the specifics with balance/character changes, that’s usually left to the community.

The folks over on Smashboards have been going in-depth with the Smash Bros. 1.1.3 update to determine what sort of modifications were made to the roster. If you’re interested in those sorts of details, continue on below for the full breakdown.

Next week, Nintendo will be bringing out several new features for Super Mario Maker. We’ll be seeing some new game elements as well as the Bookmark portal site.

Below are the full patch notes for Super Mario Maker’s latest update, version 1.30:

  • Add objects such as Fire Koopa Clown Car.
  • Add linkage with the Super Mario Maker Bookmark portal site that will allow a more detailed course search.
  • Users will no longer be able to use the words “Like”, “Yeah!”, and the “?” symbol in their course names. Please change the course name when saving a course that includes these words.
  • “World Record (fastest player to clear the course)” and the “First Clear (first player to clear the course)” will be listed for each course.
  • For courses that were posted prior to the Ver. 1.30 update, only the “World Record (fastest player to clear the course)” will displayed.
  • Adjustments will be made to make for a more pleasant gaming experience.

Super Mario Maker will require 298MB of free space for its 1.3.0 update.
