In his daily Miiverse updates, Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai posted an image of two new game modes for the Wii U version of Super Smash Bros. Upon further inspection, the two modes are single-player options, but the titles are blurred out only showing Master and Crazy with Master Hand in each section.
Sakurai only stated in his Miiverse post, “Now, what mode is this…?!” The famed Smash Bros. director is known for teasing fans of upcoming surprises with each iteration of the popular fighting franchise. With almost a month to go before Smash Bros. for Wii U’s release, many have wondered what exclusive modes will be exactly for the console version. Be it a surprise Miiverse update or an unexpected Nintendo Direct, the Wii U exclusive modes may soon be unraveled.
So, what do you think these two new modes could be? Tell us in the comments below.
Welcome to another episode of Infendo Radio! In episode 329, Harrison Milfeld, Lewis Pugh, Colin Crompton, and myself return to our tried-and-true structure. “What We’ve Been Playing” includes updates on Fire Emblem Awakening and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, as well as an anecdote from Colin you won’t want to miss. We cover holiday release dates in our Nintendo news segment and finish the show discussing listener questions.
Congrats again to Andrew (XCWarrior), the winner of the official Infendo folder naming contest! I unfortunately forgot to name a few of Andrew’s winning ideas in the episode itself; some include folder names like “Plumberland”, “GOAT” (Greatest Of All Time – Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate), and “Won’t Go Away”.
Please feel free to send us questions to discuss in a future episode of the podcast! You can send an e-mail to email@example.com, shoot me a Tweet (@HollyFellmeth), or leave a comment below this post.

Residents of the United States have one day left to join the Infendo contest to name my Wii U folders! The winner will have a signed copy of Final Reverie by Essel Pratt sent to them in the mail. The rules again are:
- Think of some good ideas for folder names. You can send in as many or as few as you would like. I’ve got a pretty wide selection of games downloaded to my Wii U, so go wild! Just keep the profanity to a minimum, if you would.
- Send your suggestions, your name, and your preferred e-mail address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- The contest will end on Saturday, October 11th, at 11:00AM Pacific. This is to allow the listeners of Infendo Radio a fair chance to join as well! The winner will be notified via their preferred e-mail at around this time and asked for a shipping address. I will name my Wii U folders based on the winning suggestions too, of course!
If you want to see what I have downloaded to my Wii U, look no further than these screens:
It was originally announced yesterday that the Gamecube controller adapter for the Wii U would be compatible not just with Super Smash Bros., but with all games that made use of the Wii U Pro Controller. Sadly that is not to be. Nintendo has now cleared up with their official accessory listing that this adapter will only compatible with Smash Bros. It’s definitely a shame that there currently won’t be more support for the Gamecube controller.
Capcom uploaded a video to YouTube today, showing off the latest Nintendo crossover equipment for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate: this time it’s Samus from the Metroid series, in both Power and Zero suit varieties. A new ranged weapon resembling an oversize version of Samus’s arm cannon is also shown being used by the bounty hunter turned monster hunter.
Nintendo fans should be very excited about this and other crossovers appearing in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate:
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate will be released for the Nintendo 3DS in the West in early 2015. What are your thoughts on the game? Have Samus and Link convinced you to dive into the series? Let me know in a comment.
