Category: Uncategorized

Club Nintendo Elite 2014

In previous years, Club Nintendo members that earned enough points to reach Gold or Platinum status received exclusive gifts like Mario-themed playing cards, soundtracks, pin sets, figures and calendars.

Sadly, that won’t be the case this year. Club Nintendo is offering Elite members a free game download from a list of 16 (eight for Gold members) Wii U and 3DS titles.

  • For Platinum members only
    • Game & Wario (Wii U)
    • NES Remix (Wii U)
    • EarthBound (Wii U)
    • Dr. Luigi (Wii U)
    • Donkey Kong Country Returns (3DS)
    • Fluidity: Spin Cycle (3DS)
    • Dillon’s Rolling Western (3DS)
    • Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move (3DS)
  • For Platinum and Gold members
    • Ice Climber (Wii U)
    • Kid Icarus (Wii U)
    • Super Mario Bros. (Wii U)
    • Zelda II – The Adventure of Link (Wii U)
    • Donkey Kong 3 (3DS)
    • Wario Land II (3DS)
    • Metroid (3DS)
    • Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins (3DS)

The selections include full retail titles likes Game & Wario and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, but they still seem underwhelming when you think back to how Club Nintendo gave Elite members an extremely rare download in Doc Louis’s Punch-Out!! back in 2009.

Sakurai Outlines Lucina and Marth’s Differences in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS

Category: Uncategorized

Smash Bros Wii U Marth Lucina

Following yesterday’s big announcement that F-Zero‘s Captain Falcon and Fire Emblem Awakening‘s Lucina and Robin (player avatar) would be coming to Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS, the game’s director Masahiro Sakurai took to Miiverse to explain how newcomer Lucina differs from the veteran Marth.

While it still sounds like Lucina’s a clone character, in the post’s comments, Sakurai explains that there is apparently enough of a difference from Marth that it warrants giving her a separate roster slot as opposed to an alternate skin like with female and male Wii Fit Trainers.

As a slight Easter egg or testament to the amount of care and detail the Smash Bros. team put into their work, Sakurai threw in an extra screenshot showing the mark of Naga present on Lucina’s left eye.

Nintendo Clarifies Bayonetta/Bayonetta 2 Bundle Details

Category: Uncategorized

Bayonetta 2 01

There’s now another source clearing up the confusion regarding the Bayonetta/Bayonetta 2 bundle. This time, it’s GoNintendo, whose Nintendo representative gave them the following statement:

The physical/disc package will include two discs: one for Bayonetta 2 and a separate one for Bayonetta 1. With the digital version, consumers will need to make two separate purchases, but the price of both will equal the total for the retail combo version. So you can buy one or the other separately if you want.

It essentially reconfirms what we’ve heard earlier and gives a little more detail on how the digital versions will be handles.
