title update

Nintendo 3DS Guide: Louvre has received an update. It’s basically a means of updating the software so that it matches the changed layout of the Louvre Museum.

Nintendo of Europe shared the update news on Twitter today, writing:


Dakko Dakko is currently cooking up an update for Scram Kitty and his Buddy on Rails.

The company’s Rhodri Broadbent took to Miiverse and explained what will be included in the update. Players can expect improved balance in stages, easier double-jumping, more entertaining and rewarding mutant mice to battle, and more strategic encounters with Mouse Commanders. Dakko Dakko also fixed a few stage progression problems.

At the moment, Scram Kitty’s update is getting its last few “finishing touches”.


Ice Cream Surfer has received an update in Europe. According to Dolores Entertainment’s Daniel Navarro, it allows players to destroy the final boss when not using the mustache.


XType Plus’ bug has been addressed in Europe. Those who downloaded the game previously should find an update waiting that opens online leaderboards and highscore replays.

A tweet from Nintendo of Europe confirms:


6th August 2014 – For the first time ever, Nintendo’s Mario Kart series will be powered by some real-world horsepower. A software update on 27th August to Mario Kart 8 for Wii U will deliver a variety of new features for players, most notably the ability to download three free Mercedes-Benz cars that players can race in the game: the modern Mercedes-Benz GLA, the 300 SL Roadster from the 1950s and the legendary Silver Arrow of the 1930s.

The GLA model comes with special wheel options, while players can customise all three new karts with various wheels and gliders in the game. The new content arrives on the 22nd anniversary of the Japanese launch of the original Mario Kart game, Super Mario Kart, which launched on 27th August, 1992, for Super Nintendo.

Nintendo is releasing a fairly major update for Mario Kart 8 on August 27. It will not only bring along the free Mercedes-Benz DLC, but also several additions/improvements.

Here’s the full rundown:

– Map display will be added on the TV screen
– Mercedes-Benz DLC will be available for free
– Default menu selection following GP race is changing to next race (instead of view highlight)
– Last used kart customization added to save
– Edit others’ highlights
– Records screen with total coins, online win-loss record, character selection rates, etc.
– Improved online stability
– Other problems will be addressed

While the update has only been officially announced for Japan, North America and Europe will almost certainly received the patch on the same day.

The 3.0 update for Steel Diver: Sub Wars is now available. This version of the game adds a bunch of new additions – they’re all outlined in the patch notes below.

PhobosLab has ironed out XType Plus’s major bug (freezes systems when accessing online leaderboards) and has already submitted an update. It’s currently in testing, and if all goes well, it should be out soon.

That means XType Plus should be up on the Wii U eShop in the very near fuure. Also, those who purchased the game in Europe before its removal will be able to update their game in order to patch the bug.

Thanks to Jake for the tip.


One of the more prominent criticisms surrounding The Letter concerns the game’s length. For many, the entire experience can be completed in a half hour or less.

The Letter’s length is something that developer TreeFall Studios addressed in a recent Miiverse post. Creator Eli Brewer believes that despite its short nature, “The Letter is a finished game”. Future updates, Brewer said, “will greatly enhance/change the experience of the game, yet they are all additional content coming after the initial game, not updates to finish the game.”
