Amiibo Figurines Available for Preorder Now
It’s a toy. It’s a peripheral. NO IT’S BOTH.
These figurines will be compatible with Smash Bros. 3DS, Mario Kart 8, Captain Toad Treasure Tracker and many more titles when they launch this Holiday season.
Amiibos will also be compatible with many 3DS games as we found out this morning with the reveal of the New 3DS systems.
Preorder: Mario Amiibo, Peach Amiibo, Villager Amiibo
New 3DS Systems Will Have Customizable Faceplates
Finally, your 3DS will be able to change it’s look with the seasons.
The New 3DS models will give you the option to change the faceplates sporting different patterns and classic characters from your favorite Nintendo titles.
Now you won’t have to drop the dime any time a fancy new limited edition 3DS comes around. Nintendo will be offering these at 10,000-30,000 yen a piece when the new models drop later this year in Japan. Ogle every faceplate for yourself here. [❤]
3DS SALE: AC: New Leaf $25, Mario 3DS $25
Crochet Mario and Friends
Well, maybe friends is a stretch. But the crochet versions of the Wario Bros. (not their canon name) look positively sweet.
These little fellas are handmade by artist Louie Mensinger. You can buy the patterns to make your own or buy them premade here. [❤]
No, You’re Not Dreaming. That’s Link In Mario Kart 8
Finally, Nintendo has caved and given us what we truly wanted: Super Smash Kart. Along with a playable hero of Hyrule, here’s what you get from the DLC pack coming November 2014 and a second pack coming May 2015.
Each Add On Content pack will contain two new cups, each with four courses, which, in total, increases the number of available courses by 50 percent. The Add On Content packs include classics like Wario’s Gold Mine from Mario Kart Wii, as well as new courses, some taking place in the worlds of The Legend of Zelda and Animal Crossing. New vehicles will also arrive with each pack, including the Blue Falcon kart representing the F-Zero franchise in the first AOC pack.
Mario Kart 8 Pack 1 - Released: November 2014
Pack 1 includes:
- 3 Characters: Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, Link
- 4 Vehicles
- 8 Courses
Mario Kart 8 Pack 2 - Released: May 2015
Pack 2 includes:
- 3 Characters: Villager, Isabelle, Dry Bowser
- 4 Vehicles
- 8 Courses
As a bonus for purchasing both packs - as a bundle or separately - you can get eight different-coloured Yoshis and eight different-coloured Shy Guys that can be used right away
Extra Stages and a playable Link has made this a must have. The pack will cost 7 euros (aprox $10 USD). Not a bad deal for three new characters and two new cups. Check out more info/preorder your pack here. [❤]
Mario Maker Will Likely Have a Sharing System
Game producer Takashi Tekuza hinted at a way for Wii U owners to share their levels online in an interview with EDGE magazine.
“There will need to be a system for sharing courses online.”
Does that mean there will be a sharing system? Most likely, but Nintendo likes to hoard secrets like plague medicine in the Dark Ages. Mario Maker without online sharing capabilities will make it a less than desirable title.
I certainly hope I can play all of your home made challenges (and likely lose). [❤]
