I’ve been holding back on this news for a few hours since the Club Nintendo site has been a bit wonky. Looks like everything is fixed now, though!

Anyway, as was promised a few weeks ago, there is a new prize available over at Club Nintendo. It’s a Zelda set of goods, which includes a history of Link, Phantom Hourglass, and Twilight Princess posters. You can check out more details below, and we’ve posted images of the posters in this post.

“This poster is accompanied by promotional posters for The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.
– 3 posters ship together as a set
– Ships in a poster tube.
– Collector’s Edition History of Link Poster measures 16.5″ x 28.7″
– The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess promotional posters measure 22″ x 28”

A fan has taken on the assignment of combining two established properties: Left 4 Dead and Mario. DoritoClock has built a completely custom map and has managed to fit Peach’s true home – the Mushroom Kingdom – in the level. While it’s possible to explore the outer castle, players can also step inside and view a fairly decent recreation of the lobby as well. You can check out a few images of the map below.

This information comes from Rare’s latest Scribes update…

“Well, it was hardly surprising: Conker had only appeared in DKR at that point and Banjo-Kazooie was in development at the same time as Smashy.”

Really, I have to agree with Rare here. Besides, there were only 12 characters in the original Smash Bros. and you could argue that Banjo and Conker were not established characters at that point.

This news is a little more surprising, though:

“Memory tells me there were almost a boatload of Rare character trophies in Melee at one point, but it never happened.”

Melee came out in 2001, but Rare was bought out by Microsoft in 2002. It’s certainly possible that the acquisition – even though it occurred after the game’s release – was some sort of a contributing factor for the loss of Rare trophies in the game.

Scribblenauts isn’t even a week old, but that isn’t stopping 5th Cell from teasing fans with an announcement of sorts. Check out this short message, which was posted over at the Scribblenauts official Facebook page

“Get your rooster hats ready! We have a very special announcement coming very soon…”

One would think that this would be Scribblenauts-related, since the notice was specifically relayed over on the Facebook page for the game. If it had something to do with 5th Cell in general, the message probably would have appeared somewhere else, such as the company’s twitter. However, it’d be wise not to get too excited at this point, mainly because we have absolutely no idea what 5th Cell is teasing. But we should find out what this is all about “very soon.”

This comes from the Capcom-Unity forums…

“We’ll always be experimenting with new IP. This generation of hardware alone has given us:

Lost Planet

Age of Booty

Flock

Dead Rising

Zack & Wiki

Spyborgs

We Love Golf

Dark Void

Ghost Trick (recently announced)

If you wanted to take a more liberal view of something like TvC, you could call it a new franchise for us, even if it isn’t new IP (all characters have previously existed).

And I’m sure some others I’m forgetting off the top of my head. Naturally, we always need to be introducing new IP so that we have some percentage of them “stick” to become ongoing franchises. But it’s always a balancing act both to keep fans happy and to manage risk.” – Christian Svensson, Corporate Officer/VP of Strategic Planning & Business Development

That’s right – The Game & Watch collection has been removed from Club Nintendo. And unfortunately, Nintendo has yet to add any additional prizes. You may remember that Denise Kaigler teased exclusive artwork for this month, but that reward has yet to go live on the site. I assume that it should be up sometime in the next two weeks if Denise plans on keeping her word!
