The fine folk over at GameXplain have managed to go hands-on with the latest build of Star Fox Zero at a Nintendo preview event at PAX Prime. The footage isn’t the most riveting that I’ve ever seen, but it shows off the slow-paced Gyro Wing in the Zoness level in the latest Star Fox game. Judging from various comments on YouTube and forums it seems as though people are wondering why this particular level was one that Nintendo wished to demo. Anyway, Star Fox Zero launches in North America and Europe on November 20th.

One of the games that a lot of you enjoyed last year was the 2D side scrolling platformer, Shovel Knight. The game launched to excellent reviews and now we’ve got some free downloadable content coming our way titled Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows which promises to give us some more platforming excellence. IGN managed to capture three minutes of the game in action and you can check that out in the video embedded below.
Everyone loves a good joke, right? Well, perhaps not when you consider this particularly troll-laden level in Super Mario Maker. Great for a laugh – but not much else – is Wii U user Kocobe’s creation, which promises to show you all the hidden and unlockable costumes in the game. Unfortunately, not is all as it seems when you enter the level and are treated to an interesting ride across travel belts, only to be mercilessly conned at the end with a mystery mushroom you’ll never reach.
As Kotaku notes, the level was found in the “featured” section of the game’s user-created courses. It may have slipped through Nintendo’s net and made the featured page as some cruel joke, but it does highlight a potential in-game moderation problem. Let us know what you think of the level in the comment section below. Super Mario Maker launches in Japan on September 10 and releases in North America and the UK the following day.

Here’s some cool footage for you. A video of a snow-themed level has popped up in the upcoming multiplayer Zelda title. Polygon has uploaded a 9-minute video titled “Snowball Ravine”, showcasing a new area in The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes. The three intrepid heroes must work together to get through a number of suitably chilly areas, while avoiding tightly packed snowballs and various enemies. Previous footage has shown us how the colourfully costumed Links can stack together as a totem pole, but we also get a sneak peek at Link using the fire gloves to melt snow and ice. The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes is set to release on the Nintendo 3DS for the US and UK on October 23.
