Since the revelation of the new Smash Bros. games, we’ve only really been shown the fighters and stages, but as the release year for the games draws ever closer, we’re starting to see other extras revealed.

Game director Masahiro Sakurai revealed this in a Miiverse post, telling us playable fighters will only be revealed on the official website. So don’t forget to keep an eye on further Miiverse posts for more updates. Continue reading
Mutant Mudds began life as an indie platformer exclusive to the 3DS eShop back in 2011. Since then, the title’s appeared on various other platforms, with new content thrown in for releases on PC and Wii U. Continue reading
It’s official! The Girl and the Robot has surpassed its $25,000 stretch goal, meaning a Wii U port is imminent! Whether it’ll arrive in the eShop alongside the Steam release has yet to be confirmed, although it’s hard to complain when yet another ambitious indie project is confirmed for the platform. If you’d like to support the devs further, there’s still another fourteen hours* for you to make a pledge here.
The Girl and the Robot is a third-person action adventure title currently heading to PC, Mac and Linux thanks to its Kickstarter supporters raising over $23,000. With less than one day remaining on the campaign, Nintendo fans need only raise another $200* to ensure a console-exclusive release on the Wii U eShop. Continue reading
Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW! has now received a launch trailer. The footage doesn’t show us anything new, but the montage of gameplay does show off the co-op mode, some dungeon crawling, which is all presented in a wacky style you’d come to expect from the series.
The second game based on the animated TV show was released across various platforms last week. The Wii U version will be released in Europe on 6th December, while 3DS owners will have to wait a week later, because well, I DON’T KNOW!
In the latest update on the Smash Bros. official site, a new screenshot reveals a brand-new stage based on the Super Mario Galaxy series.

With Wii Fit U out last week, Nintendo’s continuing its apparent push to target the Wii U towards casual gamers with this week’s release of two Wii Sports Club mini-games. Bowling and Tennis are the first two reskinned Wii games to arrive as part of this package – you can pick up a Wii Sports Club Day Pass for £1.79, offering you twenty-four hours of gameplay from any of the available sports, or buy each sport individually for £8.99.
It’s worth noting that these games have been outsourced to Namco Bandai, where HD graphics, MotionPlus controls and online multiplayer have been integrated into the experience. Continue reading
The latest screenshot posted on the official Super Smash Bros. site confirms you’ll be able to play as the male Wii Fit Trainer from Wii Fit U on both Wii U and 3DS versions. Currently, it would be safe to assume this male version will be available as an alternate costume for the female trainer. With the character line-up growing ever-stronger, this looks to be the title Wii U owners keep their eyes on. Both versions are still currently down for a 2014 release, with specific dates yet to be confirmed.
Codemasters has finally confirmed a launch window for F1 Race Stars: Powered Up Edition for Wii U.
The enhanced and upgraded Wii U port of last year’s racer was revealed back in March, before going pretty much ignored by Codemasters until it was listed in a weekly eShop update a couple of months back. This release date listing was, however, confirmed to be a mistake, before dropping back off the radar. A press release from Codemasters today has revealed that the game has not been forgotten, and will arrive as an eShop-exclusive in December.
Shin’en Multimedia has announced a brand-new racer for Wii U. It’s a sequel to WiiWare’s FAST – Racing League, sharing the developer’s latest Nano Assault game’s sub-title.
FAST Racing NEO is heading to the Nintendo eShop on Wii U next year, and if the studio’s recent efforts are any indication, we’ll be in for a treat in terms of both visuals and gameplay.
