New findings from Smash Bros. Wii U data-mining, including possibility of cut Rhythm Heaven character

Fans have data-mined Super Smash Bros. for Wii U in hopes of finding secret goodies. Based on the latest discoveries, it seems like there were some rather interesting plans for the game.

Source Gaming’s data-mining suggests that the new Smash Bros. could have received a Rhythm Heaven character (Chorus Men) as was originally speculated quite some time ago. There may have also been plans for a Dr. Mario stage.

Here’s the full rundown from Source Gaming:

The Share menu (Sharing Mii Fighters, Snapshots and Video) is present in the Wii U version. The text for it is the same (AFAIK). There are no additional fighter characters. However…

C:\SSB4\ui\replace\chr\chr_00 chr_00_Virus_01.nut

C:\SSB4\ui\replace\chr\chr_11 chr_11_Virus_01.nut

C:\SSB4\ui\replace\chr\chr_12 chr_12_Virus_01.nut

Lastly… C:\SSB4\ui\replace\chr\stock_90 stock_90_Virus_01.nut

This strongly suggests that Dr. Mario was going to receive a stage. Perhaps the three different Viruses had a different effect on the players (Chill could freeze, Weird could give the effect of Lip’s Stick and Fever could give players fire breath). There’s no way to tell as the models and stage have been removed.

Sakurai on how it was decided which stages to bring back for Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS feature stages from previous games in the franchise. There are some stages from Brawl, Melee, and even the original release.

In his latest “Smash Bros. Diaries” entry included in this month’s issue of Game Informer, director Masahiro Sakurai addressed a question about how the team decided on which stages to bring back.

There are several factors that came in to play. Sakurai mentioned “the popularity of the stage, whether or not it’s a match for the 3DS screen, and whether or not two stages from the same setting are getting ported” were all considered.

Below are Sakurai’s full comments:



New Mario amiibo initially exclusive to the Mario Party 10 bundle

There will be two versions of Mario Party 10 at launch – the standard game, and a bundle containing the new Mario amiibo. Strangely, we’re now hearing that the Mario figure will be exclusive to the bundle at launch.

A notice on Amazon’s product page states, “For a limited time, the only way to play with the Mario Party Mario amiibo included!”

We’re not sure how long that “limited” window is. But at least to start out, you’ll need to pick up the bundle if you want to get your hands on the new Mario amiibo. Pre-orders are already sold out on Amazon, so that’s one retailer option already gone.



Best Buy cancels more Majora’s Mask New 3DS XL pre-orders, including reservations with just one system

Update: Best Buy is sending out an email to consumers confirming that low stock is to blame. $50 credit is being offered to compensate.

We’re sorry but there is an issue with your pre-order. The popularity of Nintendo 3DS XL Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask Limited Edition Gold/Black exceeded the quantities made available to Best Buy. As a result, we are unable to fulfill all of the pre-orders received. We regret that your particular order has been canceled and we know that this is disappointing. We want to make it up to you by offering a $50 discount that may be used towards the purchase of one of these alternate options, or other products on

The Majora’s Mask New 3DS XL situation just got a whole lot messier at Best Buy. We’re hearing that a slew of people have experienced order cancellations today.

This is different than what we reported on earlier this week, in which Best Buy started cancelling orders containing more than one system. Unfortunately, those who did only order one Majora’s Mask New 3DS XL are now seeing cancellations as well.
