title update

Update: I’ll just leave this here. Those of you in Europe can now access the Zelda: Tri Force Heroes demo and play online with friends until January 10.


The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes has been updated. Version 2.0.0, which adds new stages, outfits, and more, can be downloaded as of this moment.

You can watch a live stream of the update below. Full patch notes are after the break.

The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes will be undergoing maintenance on December 2 (December 3 in Europe). As was previously announced, this is to prepare for the game’s new 2.0.0 update, which adds new stages, outfits, and more.

Here’s when the maintenance will be taking place:

– 4:50 PM PT – 6 PM PT
– 7:50 PM ET – 9 PM ET
– 12:50 AM in the UK – 2 AM in the UK
– 1:50 AM in Europe – 3 AM in Europe

Nintendo has also shared official English patch notes for Tri Force Heroes’ new update. Head past the break to read them in full.

In October, we mentioned that Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition would be receiving an update in Japan. The patch will bring about a few new additions for Mario and more.

Thanks to Famitsu, we now know when this update will be going live. The magazine pinned down a December 17 date in its issue last week. There hasn’t been any news for the west, but I’d be surprised if it didn’t make it over here as well.

Nintendo has updated Miiverse once again. It’s a bit on the small side though, and it only applies to 3DS.

Following today’s update, users will now find that 10 posts are shown in your Play Journal and 15 posts on other areas. Prior to this, 20 posts were displayed across the social network. Nintendo has also improved Miiverse so that error messages are less likely to be encountered.


Tiny Galaxy creator Taylor Hajash took to Twitter a few days ago and shared some news about an update planned for the game. The patch will address some small issues and graphical problems, along with a balance in difficulty.

A permanent price drop for Tiny Galaxy is also planned. In the near future, it will be reduced to $2.99.


13AM Games is hard at work on another update for Runbow. This one will be adding some new online functionality and more.

When the patch goes live, Runbow will allow for 2-player matchmaking via the Internet. This is in hopes of addressing issues some gamers have encountered in finding others to play with online. New fixes have also been implemented, and there’s “something little” which will “give you a hint about what’s to come.”

Here’s the full rundown of the new update from 13AM Games:

If you picked up Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash yesterday, you may have noticed that an update for the game could be downloaded. Nintendo brought out version 1.0.1 in time for its launch. It doesn’t do too much though, as the Big N says of the patch: “Adjustments have been made to make for a more pleasant gaming experience.”


Cube Life: Island Survival version 1.1 is something that Cypronia has been working on for awhile. It was originally targeted for September / October, but that time frame wasn’t reached. Instead, Cypronia now intends to have the patch ready for December having submitted it to Nintendo.

Here’s the latest message from the developer:

Hello Cube Life friends!

We apologize for all the delays on Cube Life update. Development of an open-world, sandbox game with more than 300 items and tools to craft, including many elaborate maps, and perfect multiplayer gaming with several controllers support is difficult. As we promised, we even have Wii Classic Controller Pro support in there, too!

Believe us, it is not easy… Creating an update of this magnitude is very challenging. Testing alone is a very daunting task–we do not want to release an incomplete product. As you can see, there were some attempts by others to do something similar… UCraft has been delayed for years, and Minecraft for the Wii U seems to be a false rumor.

But we at Cypronia are still alive and hardworking. We thank everyone who is still with us… Your patience is going to pay off. We have included some great new features in Update v1.1: Create and play custom maps for Deathmatch Mode in Multiplayer! We simply cannot wait for you to get your hands on this update–we know it will be worth the wait.

The update for the North American and EU versions have been sent to Nintendo Lotcheck and we are patiently awaiting their approval. We will keep you posted with the release date as soon as we know it. It’s coming VERY soon… Get excited!


A few hours ago, Nintendo put out a new Super Mario Maker update. This small patch brings the game up to version 1.21. No new functionality is introduced, as it instead implements enhancements for a smoother experience. You’ll need 297MB for the update.


Yesterday, Nintendo made a new version of Splatoon available. Players can now download version 2.3.0.

Nintendo has now posted the full patch notes for Splatoon’s latest update. You can find them below.
