Next Amiibo Wave Revealed

Written By Kom Limpulnam on Rabu, 14 Januari 2015 | 23.37

Nintendo on Wednesday made a pair of Amiibo-related reveals during its Nintendo Direct briefing, including details about the next wave of toys and the announcement of a "Super Mario Series."

First, the next wave of Amiibo toys, due out this spring, will include:

  • Robin
  • Lucina
  • Pac-Man
  • Wario
  • Ness
  • Charizard

The Super Mario Series of Amiibo, meanwhile, will include many of the same Super Smash Bros. Amiibo toys, but in new poses. Nintendo says that the characters Amiibo will be interchangeable, so a Super Smash Bros. Mario will interact with games in the same way as the new Super Mario Series Mario.

The full list of Super Mario Series Amiibo, coming March 20, will be:

  • Mario
  • Luigi
  • Princess Peach Bowser
  • Yoshi
  • Toad

The newly announced Toad Amiibo will update functionality for Captain Toad Treasure Tracker. Using the character will hide a pixelated Toad in each stage for you to find.

The Super Mario series will be compatible with the upcoming Mario Party 10. Rosalina and Luma, Donkey Kong, and Wario will also work with the party game. However, you'll need to erase a figure's Smash Data to use it with Mario Party.

How to Buy a New 3DS XL for $100

Nintendo's New 3DS XL will cost $200 when it's released in February, but you can pick up a unit for half that price at GameStop, provided you have a qualifying old system you want to trade in.

GameStop on Wednesday announced that shoppers who trade in a Nintendo 3DS XL or a PlayStation Vita toward the preorder of a New Nintendo 3DS XL will receive $100 in store credit. Alternatively, you can trade in a Nintendo 3DS or 2DS to receive $75 in credit applied toward a New 3DS XL.

That means you'll be able to pick up a New 3DS XL for $100-$125, before tax, depending on which system you decide to trade in. What's more, this offer applies to all versions of the New 3DS, including the multiple special editions.

The pre-order incentive begins now at GameStop stores across the United States or online. You'll need to make a $50 deposit to secure a unit.

GameStop is also the exclusive seller of the Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Edition New Nintendo 3DS XL bundle, which was announced earlier today during a Nintendo Direct. The unit, which comes with a specially designed system and a pre-loaded copy of the game, is available for preorder now at GameStop.

New Nintendo 3DS Release Date Confirmed--Only XL Version Coming to US

The New Nintendo 3DS XL will ship in North America and across Europe on February 13, Nintendo announced on Wednesday.

Nintendo's enhanced handheld is available at $200 in the US in either black or red, while two special editions have also been announced.

However, there appears to be no existing plan to release the regular-sized, non-XL systems in North America. These smaller models, which come with the same hardware spec, are unique insofar as they support custom faceplates. Back in October, these smaller versions shipped alongside the New Nintendo 3DS XL in Japan, but Nintendo has not mentioned any plan to launch them in the US.

Europe will be getting the regular sized models, along with 12 custom face plates also available at launch. In the UK, the regular model will be available in black or white, while the XL comes in black or blue.

Meanwhile, two special launch units have been revealed for both North America and Europe. A Majora's Mask edition, which you can see in the video above, comes with the 3D reboot of the N64 classic pre-installed.

However, in the US the game will not come pre-installed.. Along with this, Nintendo also announced a Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Edition that will come packaged with the game.

The Special Edition Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate 3DS

The New Nintendo 3DS comes with various hardware improvements over the original model, which first launched in March 2011. It features a small C-Stick next to its face buttons, which effectively works as a second analog stick.

Also added in are two new shoulder buttons--ZL and ZR--along with what Nintendo is calling "Super-Stable 3D," which will broaden the viewing field of the stereoscopic 3D.

Upgraded hardware will allow the system to run faster, while the in-built NFC technology will enable the use of Nintendo's amiibo figurines.

These systems will not come bundled with an AC adapter.

Metroid Prime Trilogy Poised for Wii U Re-Release

The acclaimed Metroid Prime Trilogy, which has become so sought-after by collectors that its pre-owned price on eBay has climbed above $100, will be re-released on Wii U on January 29.

Nintendo announced the digital re-release on Wednesday as part of a broader plan to offer downloadable versions of key Wii games on the Wii U. That begins now, with the release of Super Mario Galaxy 2 on the eShop, followed on January 22 with Punch-Out.

In Europe, the release schedule and line up is similar, only that instead of Punch-Out, players will be offered Donkey Kong Country Returns.

Each title will retail for $20 (£18), though will be reduced to $10 (£9) on the week of their release. More Wii re-releases are expected to follow.

GameSpot's Metroid Prime review described it as "quite simply one of the best games ever made"

Super Mario Galaxy 2 is one of only seven games that GameSpot has awarded a 10/10 since it started reviewing games in 1996. Punch-Out was also received favourably, while GameSpot's Metroid Prime review said it was "not just one of the single most atmospheric games ever created, but it's also quite simply one of the best."

Meanwhile, Nintendo also announced on Wednesday that some Wii games will benefit from enhanced compatibility support on Wii U. Although all Wii games can be played on the Wii U, players need to enter into the system's emulator to play these. Nintendo is implementing a workaround whereby all that is required to play certain Wii games is that the disc is inserted.

In GameSpot's Year Two Wii U Review, its backward-compatibility function was cited as a major advantage.

The review wrote: "One should not underestimate the value presented here. There is no lost magic in games such as Wii Sports, or Mario Galaxy 1 and 2, or the Metroid Prime Trilogy (if you can still find it), or Zelda Twilight Princess. Nintendo has some of the most capable minds in the industry when it comes to creating content with long-term appeal. Furthermore, players can still access the Wii Shop channel and buy all its digital games, offering access to a vast library of retro content."

Tekken Director On Board for Wii U Exclusive

Nintendo has announced a new partnership with Bandai Namco, which is working on a brand new Wii U exclusive currently codenamed "Project Treasure."

A teaser trailer showed that the focus will be on disarming traps and collecting treasure while playing with friends. It will be free to download, though further details on the game are light at the moment, and the trailer is somewhat vague. We'll have that trailer for you soon.

However, Nintendo has confirmed that Tekken director Katsuhiro Harada is working on the project. That doesn't necessarily mean the game will be Tekken-related.

We'll have more information on Project Treasure as soon as it becomes available.

Watch this New Trailer for Wii U Exclusive Xenoblade Chronicles X

I never get hyped for games. It can only lead to disappointment. And you know, I've not had much trouble curbing my enthusiasm for games when they're in development. I'll buy them and I'll enjoy them usually from a position of neutrality. If it's good, then hurrah. If it's crap well I didn't expect anything anyway so I'm hardly disappointed.

And then there's this. A sequel to one of my favourite games ever and my favourite JRPG of all time. It's very difficult to stay neutral with this.

Pokemon Shuffle is Nintendo's Next Free-to-Play 3DS Game

Nintendo has revealed match-three puzzle game for 3DS, called Pokemon Shuffle, that will release on the handheld in February.

The game, available for free, is similar in style to the likes of Bejeweled and Candy Crush, though with gems replaced by faces of popular Pokemon. Players must line these up in rows of three for them to disappear. The twist on the match-three format is that a player will have a limited number of moves available to create a certain number of matches, meaning that in some cases thinking ahead is required with chain combos lined up.

Nintendo says that players "will be able to take advantage of their own Pokémon's type during gameplay".

It explains: "Players will also be able to raise the level of their Pokémon as they play, enabling them to deal even more damage. Some Pokémon can even Mega Evolve, just like those in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. Mega-Evolved Pokémon are able to remove many wild Pokémon from the Puzzle Area at a time."

Pokemon Shuffle will be available for free, with the game offering five play sessions. Once this is depleted, the play allocation is restored over time. However, players can pay to speed up this process.

Nintendo has not revealed how much it will charge for each replenishment of play sessions.

Take a Closer Look at This Gorgeous Majora's Mask New Nintendo 3DS XL

Nintendo saved a nice surprise for the end of its Nintendo Direct briefing today, revealing a special-edition New 3DS XL system focused on the upcoming Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D.

The system will go on sale February 13, the same date that the game and $200 New 3DS XL system are released in North America and Europe. Nintendo's Bill Trinen says the bundle represents "the definitive way to play what is arguably the most fascinating Zelda game ever made."

In Europe, the Majora's Mask 3D bundle will come with a pre-installed copy of the game, but gamers in North America will need to buy the title separately. Nintendo did not announce a price for the special-edition Majora's Mask New 3DS XL, but $200 is likely.

If you're looking for even more Majora's Mask 3D goodies, you may want to preorder at GameStop, which is giving away free Majora's Mask pins to people who preorder Codename S.T.E.A.M. In addition, you can also spend $50 on a special edition Majora's Mask 3D bundle that comes with a Skull Kid figurine.

You can see more images of the New 3DS XL Majora's Mask 3D bundle below.
