Wii U

Once again, Nintendo has updated its maintenance schedule for the coming week. A few different sessions are planned, all of which impact Switch.

The current schedule is as follows:

moldyclay has returned with an update to the fan-made amiibo compatibility chart. Several games have been added in, which makes sense since it’s been awhile since the last version.

If you’d like to keep up with the amiibo compatibility as there are quite a lot of games and figures involved at this point, the chart (actually, there are technically multiple charts this time) will come in handy. You can find a breakdown for Switch, 3DS, and Wii U specifically below.

New Super Mario Bros. U features quite a bit of cut content, mainly relating to items and enemies. Now thanks to the fan-created level and game editor known as Miyamoto plus YouTuber Ceave, we’re able to get a look at some of the things that were ultimately scrapped.

Here’s the rundown of what was left on the cutting room floor:
