New Super Mario Bros. Wii does feature multiplayer, but it’s limited to local play. It was simply impossible to play with a friend online… until now!

Fans have come up with a mod to allow for online multiplayer in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. You can see a demonstration above.

As for how it works on a technical level, YouTube user “MrBean35000vr” explains:

It works by sending a long stream of inputs over the Internet; button presses on a controller. An assigned host dictates RNG (random number generator, random elements in games like which item you get from a box in MKW for instance), and synchronises level loads so that everyone plays the game at the same speed. It also has an adjustable lag threshold, to allow smoother gameplay with people far away with you, at the cost of slight input delay.

There’s no word yet as to when the mod will be widely available. At the moment, its creator is still working through various issues. This is very neat though, and it sounds like online multiplayer could be implemented in other Wii games that have local multiplayer.

Sonic Stadium recently came across a bunch of concept art for Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing and Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. Art ranges from the very early stages of development up through the initial pitch for Transformed. We even get a look at the Gilius Thunderhead on Chicken Leg concept Sumo Digital’s Steve Lycett spoke about previously.

GameStop ad (12/26 – 12/30)

We already posted GameStop’s post-Christmas deals over the weekend, though if you’d like to see them in visual form, check out the ad above.

Yesterday, Nintendo won a patent case in a federal court in Seattle, as Judge Robert S. Lasnik found that the Wii does not infringe two patents asserted against Nintendo by UltimatePointer, LLC. It was additionally determined that a trial is not needed since numerous claims from UltimatePointer were invalid.

Chief Judge Leonard Davis of the Eastern District of Texas made similar decisions before the case was transferred to Seattle. Judge Davis also held that Nintendo did not infringe certain asserted claims and that others were invalid.

Richard Medway, Nintendo of America’s vice president and deputy general counsel, said of today’s news:

“We are very pleased with these decisions, which confirmed Nintendo’s position from the beginning – we do not, nor have we ever, infringed these patents. The result in this case, once again, demonstrates that Nintendo will continue to vigorously defend its innovations against patent lawsuits, even if it must do so in multiple courts and commit significant resources to defend itself. Nintendo continues to support reform efforts to reduce the unnecessary and inefficient burden patent cases like this one place on technology companies in the United States.”

At Jump Festa 2015, Square Enix announced the next expansion for Dragon Quest X. Version 3 will be known as “Legend of the Ancient Dragons”.

For the time being, Square Enix is mostly keeping quiet with regard to actual information. However, the company did reveal a new playable race: the dragon tribe. You’ll find a first piece of art showing the race below.

The federal appeals court has confirmed Nintendo’s win in a patent infringement case brought at the International Trade Commission by Creative Kingdoms. Creative Kingdoms asked the ITC to block importation of Wii U and Wii consoles, but it was reaffirmed that the company’s patents are invalid and should not have been issued. This is because Creative Kingdoms tried to claim more than it invented.

Richard Medway, Nintendo of America’s vice president and deputy general counsel, said of today’s news:

“We are pleased with the court’s determination. Nintendo’s track record demonstrates that we vigorously defend patent lawsuits, particularly when the patents are being stretched beyond the inventors’ ideas. Nintendo continues to develop unique and innovative products while respecting the intellectual property rights of others.”

iNiS made two Ouendan for the DS back in the day. Supposedly, there were plans to create a third entry for Wii.

Unseen64’s Liam Robertson was in communication with “a very trusted source”, who spoke with iNiS’ president and was informed about the company’s intentions to bring Ouendan to Wii. It’s unclear why those plans never materialized. Robertson hopes to learn more about the situation in the future.
