Since releasing Blok Drop U, RCMADIAX (one-man developer Michael Aschenbrenner) has clearly been busy. Poker Dice Solitaire Future, the first of a series called “Tabletop Games,” recently hit the Wii U eShop, and Aschenbrenner’s Super Robo Mouse is set to release sometime later this year on the Wii U eShop.
The game is RCMADIAX’s largest yet and stars a mouse called Robo, who must escape various maze-like stages by collecting titanium cheese to unlock the gates. There are over 20 such stages, including 3 boss fights. Players will have a lot of control options to choose from, including the Wii U GamePad, Wii U Pro Controller, Wii Classic Controller (and Pro), and Wii remote + nunchuck. Off-TV play is also optional.
The game will hit Europe and North America around the same time with a price point of under $5. More details will become available closer to the game’s release. For now, let us know what you think about Super Robo Mouse in a comment below.

Hot off the recent reveal of three characters (two new and one returning) for the fourth and fifth iterations of the Smash Bros. franchise, a Japanese publication titled CoroCoro will offer more insight to the full roster. According to the publication, they will have a full exclusive of the complete 3DS Smash Bros. roster and stages on August 12th.
Now, the 3DS and Wii U versions of Super Smash Bros. will have exclusive stages that reflect the handheld and console aspects of Nintendo’s famous franchises. However, the character selection will be the same across both platforms. So, much speculation has occurred on what new characters will be announced and what returning characters will make the cut or not. The current roster is now at 36 fighters (37 if one is to believe Mr. Game & Watch’s cameo at the end of the Pac-man reveal is confirmation that the character will return), which means we are getting to the tail end of character reveals before the 3DS version’s September release in Japan. For many Earthbound fans, now would be the time to start sweating some bullets; we all should be worried.
So, with a possible full character roster reveal looming, how many more fighters do you think Sakurai and his team will unveil? Ridley? Shulk? Ness…finally? Tell us in the comments below.
Smash Bros. head honcho Masahiro Sakurai revealed earlier today a new Smash trophy on Miiverse. To the surprise of many, the trophy is that of a third party character: Rayman. Not to be confused with an assist trophy, this in-game collectable trophy was actually designed by Ubisoft themselves and not Sakurai’s team.
The trophy reveal came a few hours before the Smash Bros. website was to announce a new character, which led many to believe Rayman would be added to the roster. Unfortunately, that was not the case for many Rayman fans. You can read Sakurai’s statement on the Rayman trophy below.
“In order to make Rayman’s trophy, we asked Ubisoft to share their references. We were expecting to receive 2D drawing references for Rayman, but to our surprise, they sent us data of a brand new 3D model that they rendered for this game!! And that was how this trophy was created. It takes a lot of work creating each model, so it’s wonderful that the creators contributed their own efforts!!”
The official YouTube account for the Pokemon series has uploaded a trailer (right on the heels of the Super Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS character reveal trailer; unrelated) that shows off a new Mega evolution: that of Metagross. The trailer is more than a reveal for Metagross’s new mega-look, though: it includes a look at several of the gym leaders/elite four in the duo of 3DS games and…Pikachu in some incredibly cute costumes. What’s that all about, you ask? We all apparently have to wait to find out.
What do you think about the new video?
Update: The new trailer is now viewable on YouTube. Check it out here or below this post. A few things are still vague, but Lucina seems a whole lot like a gender swap for Marth, and Chrom seems like a mystery, as we don’t see him fighting a whole lot in the trailer. More food for thought.
Original Post: As Nintendo promised, a new character has been announced for Super Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS…wait, a few have been announced. It seems Captain Falcon is returning for one thing. Then, from Fire Emblem: Awakening, we have Robin, Lucina, and Chrom joining the fight, in one way or another (the streamed video was rather confusing to me, and it doesn’t help that I was way, way overexcited, being the Fire Emblem: Awakening fan that I am) I got one thing from the video for sure, however: both the male and female versions of Robin will be playable, which is fantastic news in my book. As soon as Nintendo uploads the official reveal to YouTube, you’ll see it right here on Infendo, so check back!

Changes are in Infendo Radio’s future. Episode 317 (with Lewis Pugh, Colin Crompton, and myself, Holly Fellmeth) details those changes and more. We try to guess who will be announced for Super Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS (I edited pretty quick to get the episode out before the streamed event, which you can view here at 7:00am PT!), talk about Poker Dice Solitaire Future, answer community comments, and…well, I’ll let you find out the rest! But I will tell you this: Lewis shares some exciting, exclusive news with us as well. So really, this is a can’t-miss episode.
