Kit and Krysta take on the Whisper Challenge in the latest Nintendo Minute episode. The challenge can be played by two people, where one person wears headphones to cancel surrounding noise while trying to guess what the other person is saying without being able to hear him or her. In this case, all of the sayings are related to Nintendo.
Treyarch has confirmed to Eurogamer that Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is only in development for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC and there will be no ports this time around. So, that sounds pretty much final. If you want to play the game you’re going to need a PlayStation 4, Xbox One or a decent PC. You can watch the reveal trailer for the game in the video posted above.
“There are no ‘ports'” Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia said at the game’s reveal event. “The game is made on multiple platforms, it’s the beginning of a new generation and we’re showing it to you on all these platforms, to dispel some of the misconceptions about development.”
“We’re working on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. That’s it,” he added. As for other platforms such as PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and – stop smirking at the back – Wii U? We were directed to Activision, which said it had no further platform announcements at this time.
Update: Here’s the trailer
In may not come as a surprise to many but it doesn’t appear as though Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is coming to the Wii U. The official site for the game specifies that the popular first person shooter series is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. It is disappointing as the last Black Ops title was well-received by Wii U owners, but the latest edition will most likely be skipping the platform this time around. The official trailer for the game is due to be released later today.

Pokkén Tournament is a mash-up game of Tekken with Pokémon characters. Developed by Bandai Namco in collaboration with The Pokémon Company, it’s set to release in Japanese arcades this Summer. Although it hasn’t been confirmed, we can probably bet that it will eventually arrive on the Wii U at some point at least. You’ll be able to play as characters like Pikachu, Suicune, Gardevoir and, as just announced, Gengar. Check out the trailer and see what you think, it’s a pretty clever concept and definitely worth keeping an eye out for! Will you be crossing your fingers for Pokkén Tournament to release on the Wii U? What Pokémon would you most like to play as?
Nintendo World Report TV have brought us this comparison of Ribbon Road gameplay, from the original Mario Kart: Super Circuit on GBA to the new Mario Kart 8 DLC on the Wii U. I think this is one of the best remasters of old tracks, I don’t remember it looking so bad on my GBA! They’ve also compared Cheese Land from the same game, so take a look and see just how awesome the new DLC is.
Midnight developer Petite Games has revealed a new project called Land it Rocket for Wii U. On another note, the studio has decided to cease development of Micro Racers, which was also coming to Wii U. The decision to cancel the title was necessary because it apparently “wasn’t fun enough to release.” Details regarding Land it Rocket will be announced at a later date.
