HORI is bringing out two new Mario Kart 8 racing wheels in just a few weeks. Over on Amazon, Link and Toad wheels are listed for release on July 6. Pricing is set at $14.99 and $11.99 respectively.

Both accessories are officially licensed by Nintendo and act as attachments for the Wii Remote. They come equipped with a trigger button on the underside of the attachment to make the B button easily accessible. Additionally, they are optimized/designed for use with Mario Kart 8.

A new interview from USgamer has extensive comments from Koji Igarashi about Bloodstained and the game’s recent Kickstarter. You can find that here.

In one section of the interview, Igarashi reflected on some of his previous titles. What he said about Castlevania Judgement seemed particularly interesting. Here’s what was shared about making the nontraditional Castlevania title for Wii:

So there are games, and then there’s succeeding and/or not succeeding. Video games are a tough business, and a lot of games don’t succeed. The smart man will try to learn from his mistakes.

When it comes to Castlevania Judgment, the one thing I learned was from the production side – how to make the best game I possibly can with a variety of different limitations: budgetary, time, etc., thrown on you. Obviously, that wasn’t the best game ever, but it was the best game that I think anyone could have made within those limitations. And the game did get out the door.

The folks over at Unseen64 have once again unearthed information about a game that never ended up being released. Zblu Cops was being developed by Biodroid Entertainment for the Wii and was set to be released in 2010. Based on the French comic book of the same name, Zblu Cops was a classic 3D adventure game with an emphasis of exploration and humour. Be sure to check out the full article about Zblu Cops and watch the video about it below:

For now at least, Activision doesn’t have plans to sell the Bowser and Donkey Kong Skylanders as separate figures. The only way to obtain them is by purchasing the Skylanders SuperChargers Starter Packs. The Wii U version comes with Turbo Charge Donkey Kong and the Barrel Blaster, while the 3DS and Wii editions feature Hammer Smash Bowser and the Clown Cruiser.

Game Informer asked Activision about the possibility of selling the Bowser and Donkey Kong figures. In response, a representative said:

“At this time, Turbo Charge Donkey Kong and Hammer Slam Bowser will be sold via the Nintendo starter packs only, as we wanted to avoid having consumers confused at retail thinking that they are playable on other platforms, as they are exclusive to Nintendo platforms.”
