Another Super Smash Bros. Brawl veteran, King Dedede, will be returning to the Smash Bros. series for its Wii U and Nintendo 3DS outings. King Dedede is the main antagonist in the Kirby games. As a combatant in Super Smash Bros., he is known for his fairly sluggish movement, powerful moves, and ability to float like Kirby does.
King Dedede’s confirmed return to Smash Bros. comes hot on the tail of news that Zelda is returning and Rosalina and Luma are incoming, which suggests that more significant reveals will happen a little more frequently from here on out. Which characters from Brawl’s roster would you like to see return?
Remember how painstakingly difficult it was to collect every character or item trophy in Super Smash Bros. Melee? Of course you do, after the hours-upon-hours of unlocking them, that is. Well, the much-applauded trophy system in Super Smash Bros. will now be expanded with different types and models for the Wii U and 3DS versions respectively.
Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai announced the new trophy system via Miiverse yesterday. In his post, he mentioned that the 3DS version would include trophies based on games appearing on handhelds, whereas the Wii U version would include trophies based on games appearing on consoles. Not only that, Sakurai teased a new trophy that would appear in Super Smash Bros. 3DS. The trophy included in his post was Saria, who is based on her Ocarina of Time 3D model.
So, what trophies would you like to see make an appearance in the next iteration of Super Smash Bros.? Tell us in the comments below.
The trailer above shows viewers how to play Tengami, a pop-up book game. Indie developer Nyamyam set the adventure game in Japan in the midst of “ancient dark fairy tales.” Players use touch controls to manipulate each stage to solve puzzles. Based on the trailer, Nyamyam animated Tengami well. It also appears to be a relaxing title, something you can snuggle up and enjoy. Expect Tengami to arrive on Wii U eShop later this year for around $10.
As the world rings in a new year, Nintendo fans can look forward to what 2014 brings while still enjoying the best of 2013 on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. I know that’s what I’m thinking about (among other things) during this festive time.
How did you celebrate New Year’s, and what Wii U or 3DS game are looking forward to the most in 2014? If you’re like me, you celebrated with a little Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and you’re most looking forward to the release of Monolith’s “X” on Wii U (Super Smash Bros. is a close second).
Princess Zelda has been announced today as the 20th character for Super Smash Bros. on the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Zelda, who made her first appearance in Super Smash Bros. Melee, will be modeled after her Twilight Princess design. She will join fellow Nintendo princesses such as Peach and Rosalina on the growing roster.
A release date for Super Smash Bros. on the Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS has yet to be announced, but is slated to hit store shelves sometime in 2014.
Nintendo announced a new eShop title for the Wii U during today’s December Nintendo Direct. Titled, NES Remix, the downloadable title takes your favorite NES titles but adds little tweaks and changes for new challenges. Some of these changes include playing the original Super Mario Bros. backwards with Luigi, controlling an NES Link sprite through the original Donkey Kong, and Excitebike tracks where you must navigate through the dark. One additional feature for NES Remix will also include unlockable stamps (as seen from the recent Super Mario 3D World) that can be used for Miiverse posts.
The downloadable title will include 16 re-imaginings of classic NES titles. These titles are as follow: Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., Donkey Kong 3, Excitebike, Super Mario Bros., Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Clu Clu Land, Wrecking Crew, Pinball, Urban Champion, Baseball, Tennis, Ice Climber, Golf and Balloon Fight.
You can download NES Remix starting today on the Nintendo Wii U eShop.
