We are all anxiously awaiting the arrival of Xenoblade Chronicles X for the Wii U. We already know that development has nearly been wrapped up on the title, but we’ve yet to see the box-art looks like.

Former Rare developer Grant Kirkhope has taken to Twitter to inform Banjo Kazooie fans that there will be something interesting for them in next month’s edition of EDGE magazine. Kirkhope has warned fans that it isn’t the announcement of Banjo Threeie that we’ve been waiting for, and it doesn’t involve either Microsoft or Rare. Let’s hope it turns out to be as interesting as he says.
Update: It’s either A Hat In Time, Gory Detail or Banjo spiritual successor according to this video.

Oh dear, bad news for those of you who were hoping to score a Mario Amiibo from the Mario Party range as you’ll need to purchase the game bundle to get him. The news was revealed via Amazon’s Mario Party 10 product page. Don’t worry though, it’s only for a limited time only and I suspect those that wanted the Amiibo also wanted the game.
