Smash Bros. Director Teases A New Mode for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

Category: Uncategorized

Smash Wii U Master Crazy Mode

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U won’t just have some different stages from the 3DS version, it will also have a new single-player mode. Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai gave us our first peek at the mode on Miiverse.

The version of the picture posted on the Japanese Miiverse is less censored, but still just as mysterious. The text reportedly translates to “Master Side” and “Crazy Side.”

It’s anyone’s guess as to what this menu is hinting at, but I don’t think this is it.

Category: Uncategorized

CoroCoro Mega Latios Latias

Four more pokémon are getting Mega Evolutions in Pokémon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby, Japanese publication CoroCoro revealed.

In their latest issue, they gave us our first look at the Mega Evolutions for Generation One pokémon Beedrill and Pidgeot and the Generation Three legendaries Latias and Latios.

Mega Pidgeot is a Normal- and Flying-type with the ability No Guard and Mega Beedrill is a Bug- and Poison-type with the ability Adaptability.

Like in the original games, Latias and Latios will be split up across both games, with Latias being the Alpha Sapphire exclusive and Latios the Omega Ruby exclusive. In order to access them, you need to get the Eon Ticket, an event item that will be distributed in a future issue of CoroCoro.

You can hop on the backs of Latias and Latios to explore the skies of Hoenn and find legendaries like Reshiram, Zekrom, Dialga, Palkia. Non-legendaries can also be found roaming the areas above the region.

Wii U GameCube Controller Adapter Will Not Work With Other Wii U/Wii Games

Category: Uncategorized

Super Smash Bros Wii U Bundle Box

Earlier this week, the official Nintendo UK store put up a listing for the Wii U GameCube Controller Adapter along with a description saying it would be compatible with Wii U and Wii games that use the Wii Classic Controller, Classic Controller Pro and Wii U Pro Controller. However, in a statement given to GameSpot, the company confirmed that the peripheral will only work with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

“The GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U is compatible with Wii U and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U specifically – it is not compatible with any other Wii U software.

“The adapter is also not compatible with Wii and we apologize for any confusion”

The UK store listing has since been updated with the new information.

Category: Uncategorized

Skylanders Trap Team launches this week. While the franchise’s concept of connecting toys and games together is novel, the fact that its in its fourth iteration in as many years is a bit worrying. It’s dangerously going down the same path as Guitar Hero and the plastic instrument craze from just a few years ago.
