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.

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.
