Head Of Sonic Team Says Sonic Will Appear Again On Home Consoles

With the recent restructuring of Sega and their emphasis on mobile and PC some thought that Sonic might be relegated to a future on smartphones and tablets. Thankfully, Takashi Iizuka who is the head of Sonic Team, said we should still expect to see Sonic titles on home consoles. The next home console Sonic title was rumoured for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and hopefully the Wii U.

Personally, I don’t plan to stop Sonic for home-video game consoles. Don’t worry about them! And enjoy!

Thanks, MasterPikachu6

It’s not just amiibo which are being listed for ridiculous prices on eBay. A quick browse of the online auction site reveal that the New Nintendo 3DS faceplates are also being sold for inflated prices. If you want the Xenoblade Chronicles New Nintendo 3DS faceplates then you’re looking at spending around $60 and the Zelda New Nintendo 3DS faceplates are retailing for around $50. If you’re in the United Kingdom then you can pre-order both from the Nintendo UK Store for £12.99 each.

GameStop Italy Stores Listing Zelda Wii U With A Spring Release Date

zelda_wii_u_gamestop_italy_spring

Perhaps GameStop Italy are privy to more information than the rest of us as they have started advertising The Legend of Zelda Wii U with a spring release date. The date appears to be plucked out of nowhere as a spring release date hasn’t been mentioned by Nintendo and seems a little too soon. Still, GameStop Italy are listing the game for release this spring which doesn’t make too much sense at present.
