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.
Take a look at these little secrets hidden away in the new tracks of the Mario Kart 8 DLC. Including nods to the original NES Super Mario Bros, connections between the Mario Kart world, a Batman spotlight signalling Bowser in Neo Bowser City, and some lovely music features in the Animal Crossing track. A good excuse to switch on your Wii U and check them out for yourself!
In case you missed it, Nintendo of America has uploaded the Nintendo Treehouse segment that happened after the Xenoblade Chronicles X Nintendo Direct presentation yesterday. The enthusiastic team over at Nintendo Treehouse give you a decent size walk-through of the humongous game as well as gloss over the interface and battle system. If you’re at all interested in Xenoblade Chronicles X then you will probably want to watch this video.
It’s really not long until Xenoblade Chronicles X launches in Japan, it seems to have come around fairly quickly. Anyway, Xenoblade Chronicles X director Tetsuya Takahashi has spoken openly about the company’s first venture into HD gaming. Takahashi says that this is a game which basically shows what Monolith Soft in capable of when they put their minds to it. Let’s hope it delivers.
“An open world is a single phrase, but it wasn’t a simple thing to realize. As you know, it was our first HD title. The environment for development was drastically different compared to anything we had done before when it comes to distributing resources or formulating workloads. You can’t expect things to get done in a day and it finally took form as a result of many adjustments. There were many hardships, but it was worth the trouble as the gameplay turned out to be pleasant, even if I say so myself!”
“Although I said just a while ago that we focused on hack-and-slash, generally speaking it is fun to slay strong monsters to obtain equipment and Doll customization parts. You can’t buy things like unseen weapons and armor or new Dolls in usual shops. If you slay super strong enemies named Overed or World Enemies, you may obtain materials which are used for unique super rare items which you can’t get by other means. Those parts are extremely strong. If you obtain those items, please show them off to other players in loosely connected online!”
“Xenoblade Chronicles X is releasing at last. It is the first HD title for Monolith Soft. Like the previous work Xenoblade Chronicles, it is a game that we used to ascertain “what we can achieve currently” and by carefully acquiring experience, it became a foundation that connects with the future of Monolith Soft. Please look forward to it.”

We’ve got some brand new footage of the long-awaited Mario Maker which was taken directly from Game Center CX SP at NicoNico Chokaigi 2015. The event was a Super Mario 30th Anniversary special and featured two games, which were the original Super Mario Bros and Mario Maker. In the video you can witness Shinya Arino playing Super Mario Bros with the DanceDance Revolution mat, which is rather amusing. The second part showcases Mario Maker on the Wii U. Shinya Arino made three custom levels before the event for three special guests to play their way through. The third guess is none other than Shigeru Miyamoto. Be sure to check out all the fun and games in the video, above.
Tilmen is at it again and this time he has picked up Bravely Second: End Layer which is fresh from Japan. Bravely Second: End Layer is a direct sequel to the acclaimed Bravely Default which launched on the Nintendo 3DS back in 2013. The sequel is out now in Japan, but European and US consumers will have to wait until sometime possibly later this year. We should find out for sure during Square Enix’s E3 press conference which was announced yesterday.
These amiibo are incredibly hard to get hold off, but NintenDaan has managed to secure them. He’s received Robin, Lucina & Ness and you can check out the excitement in the unboxing video which is posted above. The figures are now available in Europe, but I wish you good luck in finding them!
