Toys R Us Canada, Gamestop USA and Video Productions Distributors have all listed Super Smash Bros. Wii U to release on November 21st. While this could be just a placeholder date it seems fairly random. Most would use November or December 1st. Plus I’ve seen those Toys R Us pre-order slips and they have said “Holiday” or “TBA” in the past. Now personally I think the date is ok but should be moved. I think it does need to be out by Black Friday but releasing it the same day as Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire just seems weird to me. I’m sure if this date is real we’ll hear soon so keep your eyes peeled!Read More
We knew Nintendo would be hosting a tournament of the 3DS version of Super Smash Bros. at the upcoming SDCC but the official Facebook page has confirmed there will be a few special surprises. Now this might be something as little as some competitive player we wouldn’t expect or someone such as Reggie or Sakurai appearing in person. It could be a new character but I wouldn’t wager on it myself. SDCC will take place July 25 and 26 and Nintendo will be livestreaming on their Twitch page.

During the Smash Bros. Direct back in April it was revealed characters could have special costumes with more effort than simply swapping their pallet such as previous titles. This includes characters such as Wii Fit Trainer, Villager and Robin being able to switch genders, Little Mac being in his Wire-Frame form as well as his training hoodie which for the most part all are fairly obvious choices. He’s thrown us off a bit though with Mario (His costume from NES Open Tournament Golf), Link (The clothing he starts off with in Skyward Sword) and Captain Falcon (solid gold body!). I was thinking with some of these costumes they could get really unique...Read More
Earlier today, 4J Studios’ Twitter revealed a new texture pack coming to Xbox 360 players, but they also spoke about a possible skin pack coming to PS3 users as well as the texture pack.

4J Studios’ Twitter revealed today that a brand new texture pack is in the works (and is nearing completion) coming soon to Xbox 360 users. This texture pack is called none other than “Cartoon Texture Pack” for a very good reason. It looks like the creators of Looney Toons went into Minecraft and took over. Much like the other texture packs, this nostalgic throwback will probably only cost $1.00 (USD). More news when it’s released.
We had a Live Stream earlier today to announce a newcomer but instead we got 2 and a veteran! We got confirmation that Robin (player character from Fire Emblem Awakening) will be in Super Smash Bros. in both the male and female versions, Lucina will also be joining in the fight which gives Fire Emblem four fighters in the upcoming game opposed to two from Melee and Brawl. Captain Falcon has also been confirmed to be returning and we get a tease for Chrom. Chrom appears to be part of Robin’s Final Smash. Check out the Smash Bros. site for more info on these three.Read More

Yesterday, July 11th, Neversoft Entertainment officially closed their doors. Activision announced a few months back that Neversoft (Tony Hawk, Guitar Hero) will be merging with Infinity Ward (Call of Duty) as a single corporation. Because of the popularity and their large involvement in the Call of Duty franchise, the name of Infinity Ward will remain, but Neversoft will not. The workers even set their company logo ablaze to celebrate their closing.Read More
