In a recent interview with gamestm, Masahiro Sakurai speaks to his passion for his upcoming title Super Smash Bro’s for Wii U and 3DS.

“It really is a miracle,” beams an ebullient Sakurai to the gathered room of journalists. “[We have] four of the most famous characters in the video game industry on the same screen battling each other. The only game that makes this possible is Super Smash Bros.”

“And, just between you and me,” he adds, leaning towards the crowd as if to whisper in the ear of each participant, “I’m aiming to make this the number one character game in the world.”

When Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate hit the 3DS many people swiftly purchased for themselves a Circle Pad Pro, as the extra analogue stick made navigation in the game much simpler. Third party manufacturer Hori are trying to take this one step further with the Extended Slide Pad controller, creating console like shoulder buttons to make the playing experience closer to a home console. 2 streams of the device will be released, one for the 3DS and one for the XL each for 2 980 yen. An accessory kit is also on the way featuring a cleaning cloth, strap and decal for 2 180 (3DS version) and 2 2280 yen (XL version). Check out the accessories below and let us know what you think!


Third party manufacturer Cuber Gadget are releasing an accessory to back up 3DS save data off carts to your computer. It’s an interesting concept, allowing you to store all your 3DS data in case you lose your physical carts for whatever reason and need to restore them to another. At present it’s coming to Japan on June 8th for 3,300 Yen with no Western release as of yet.

Almost three thousand years ago, a shy fellow (I don’t know if he was shy) named Homer lived in Greece, and he wrote two really famous epic poems: The first– The Illiad— is thought to be the oldest surviving piece of western literature ever. The second– The Odyssey— is just as famous, and this week, nearly three millennia after its initial writing, The Game Bakers have created a work directly inspired by the work of Homer for the Wii U eShop. It’s called Squids Odyssey.

Most of what is written in the paragraph above isn’t true. Squids Odyssey does exist, but it’s not a game based around Homer’s Odyssey— no, it’s a creative and unique turn-based strategy game set far beneath the surface of the ocean that’s unfortunately marred by a lack of technical polish and attention. Still, it may be worth your time; read on for details.

Everyone’s favorite pink puff has finally returned in his first adventure on the Nintendo 3DS, Kirby: Triple Deluxe.

Out of the box, Triple Deluxe consists of three gameplay modes: Story Mode, Kirby Fighters, and Dedede’s Drum Dash. The Story Mode is straightforward: Dreamland is in danger, and it’s up to Kirby to save the day. This time, a mysterious new villain has uprooted Kirby’s home with massive magical vines and sent everything sky-high! Players navigate Kirby through many levels in seven worlds as he makes his ascent to the top of the menacing entanglement.

A wild Super Smash Bros. screenshot appears! Series director Masahiro Sakurai posted the following on Miiverse:

Here’s the Prism Tower stage for the 3DS version! The battle begins on ground level right in front of the tower.

Smash Bros. series director Masahiro Sakurai sure seems to be revealing a lot of 3DS exclusive stages lately. Today’s scheduled update to the Super Smash Bros. Director’s Room on Miiverse showed off a brand new arena – Lumiose City from Pokémon X/Y. It might not have the massive skyscrapers and randomly appearing Pokémon from Saffron City, but it sure beats another Pokémon Stadium. Sakurai had this to say about the new addition:

The Prism Tower rises above Lumiose City. Up until a few seconds ago, the fighters were brawling on top of that tower. No, really.

Along with this image, director Masahiro Sakurai used Miiverse to fill everyone in on a few neat additions to Little Mac’s moveset. Sakurai posted:

Pic of the day. Little Mac’s side smash attack is his straight right punch…but it can transform into an uppercut if you tilt diagonally upward, or a body hook if you tilt diagonally downward. The body hook is the most devastating of these moves and it doesn’t blast the opponents away.

The trick in activating these punches is to avoid tilting the controls diagonally from the get go–instead, tilt up or down right after the smash attack starts kicking in. You can also tilt up or down while you’re powering up.


Along with today’s screenshot of the 3DS version’s Nintendogs stage, director Masahiro Sakurai posted the following message on Miiverse:

Pic of the day. A bored-looking dog staring at the TV… Occasionally, the Super Smash Bros. series really makes me confused about what I’m creating.

Okay then!
