Super Smash Bros. Update Coming July 31st

Tournament mode, Stages, Mii Costumes, and more!

 

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U & 3DS will get a massive update with new content for players around the globe.
This new update will be arriving July 31st (Confirmed for Japan and Europe) and is set out to include the following:
Hyrule Castle

Super Smash Bros. 64 Stages

Many Smash players have been there from the very beginning, day 1, back on the Nintendo 64, so it should come as no surprise that the new game’s been getting some nostalgic love with classic stages.
Kongo Jungle and more recently, the DLC stage, Dream Land (64, not to be confused with the 3DS Stage of the same name).
The new stages revealed to be returning from the N64 are Hyrule Castle and Peach’s Castle, arguably, two of the most popular stages back in  the original Smash, particularly Hyrule Caslte.
Peach’s Castle
There’s no official price yet, but we’re speculating that their price tag will be the same as it was for Dream Land (64), $1.99 for either one version of the game, and $2.99 for the bundle of the two.
Tournament Mode
Tournament mode was announced to finally return to Super Smash Bros. with new online features like user-made tourneys and tourneys made from Nintendo staff.
It’s noteworthy that there’s no sign to weather or not the 3DS version will be getting tourney, we believe it’ll be coming but don’t want to hype you in vain.
Chrom from Fire Emble
Mii Fighter Costumes

There’s also a handful of new costumes for the Mii Fighters to wear, including Chrom from Fire Emblem Awakening for the Mii Swordsman, King K. Rool from the Donkey Kong series for Mii Brawler, and new Smash-themed sweaters for all, Gunner, Swordsman and Brawler.

China Restrictions on the Gaming Industry are a Thing of the Past!

An Important Step for China’s Gaming Scene

China has finally lifted any and all bans that it had with Video Game software and hardware, announcing that all three major gaming systems.
The PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the Wii U will soon start to be distributed thanks to the new laws that let them manufacture and sell anywhere in China.

A huge step forward for gamers living in China, congratulations! Truly a great day for the global gaming scene.
It’s noteworthy that previously all systems available in China had to go through immense amounts of taxation, specifications, and region limitations, but that’s all in the past!

Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Finally on the Nintendo eShop.

Available for Wii U and New 3DS

The cult classic, download game popular on platforms like Steam and PSN has finally arrived to Nintendo’s systems, it’ll cost $14.99, the same as in every other platform.

The game is unfortunately skipping the previous iterations of the 3DS (3DS, 3DS XL, 2DS), and staying with the New 3DS and New 3DS XL due to limitations with the platform used to port the game.

Parents be advised, this game is not at all for kids, with some disturbing scenery, is M-Rated by the ESRB for violence, blood, crude humor and drugs.

If you’re on the fence of getting this game, just check this trailer that was released for the original PSN and Steam releases, a strong warning for really disturbing, nightmare fuel material.

If you’ve already tried the game on other platforms, did you like it? Would you recommend it to people trying it for the first time now that it’s on Nintendo systems? Or if you haven’t played, does it seem like something that might interest you? Let us know in the comments bellow.

Weavile Joins Pokkén Tournament

The Dark/Ice Pokémon Joins the Upcoming Fighting Game!

The fan-favorite Pokémon will be a playable fighter in the upcoming Pokkén Tournament, an arcade fighting game developed by Namco Bandai and the Pokémon Company.
Weavile is one of the few Pokémon introduced that is not a legendary Pokémon and doesn’t have a Mega Evolution, alongside Pikachu.

Physically, weavile seems to be on the shorter side of the Pokémon, again, like Pikachu, which will make for some visually interesting battles. Its size is not just for show, it also seems to make it a hard target.
Weavile is also shown to be really fast with its big, sharp claws, which will make for some fast-paced gameplay and high-numbered combos.
Like the other Pokkén Tournament announcements, there’s no official YouTube upload, so here’s the trailer uploaded by the good folks at GameXplain:
