The number of times we’ve accidentally clicked “View Highlight Reel” at the end of a Mario Kart 8 race is uncountable. You know what we mean – you’re beating your family in a heated tournament, you’re mashing the 2 button on your Wii Remote to quickly start the next Grand Prix, when you remember that the “Next Race” button is no longer atop the post-race menu. Thankfully, tweaks to this menu, and other areas of Mario Kart 8, will be added via a software update on 27th August – the 22nd anniversary of Super Mario Kart’s Japanese release. Continue reading

Having made its début on Nintendo DS in 2011, the Inazuma Eleven series has become something of a surprise hit in Europe – spawning two sequels and even a Wii spin-off.

Hello, and welcome to the final day here on Destiny Island. We’ve had a look at a few things the game has to offer, but what we haven’t seen a lot of is the emotions that Tomodachis feel after and during certain events. First, we’ll look at what happens when residents fall out with each other. Fall outs come in two forms, minor arguments and massive fights, although neither seems to affect their mood towards each other after. If two residents have a minor argument you’ll be able to tell as they’ll be giving off steam and have a mean look. Things can be sorted out rather easily by just talking to the resident and telling them to make up or apologise.
We’re nearing the end of our time here on Destiny Island, so let’s make the most of it with a trip to Leisure Island! Leisure Island has different attractions at different times of the day: a Magic Show in the morning, Tomodachi Quest in the afternoon and at night and the Evening Market. I haven’t been able to see the Magic Show yet but I assume it sticks to the game’s zany atmosphere.
It’s the fifth day here on our pleasant little island and I think it’s time we add some more Tomodachis. The next residents of Destiny Island are Evan and music artist Marina and the Diamonds! Having two female Tomodachis unlocks the Hats shop which works just the same as the regular Clothes shop.
