Latest Smash Bros Nintendo 3DS Glitch Turns Players Into Giants

There’s been a few amusing bugs in Super Smash Bros on the Nintendo 3DS, but the latest has to be the best yet. The bug, which you can see in the video above, happens when you’re confronted by a number of enemies. If you choose to play as Yoshi and continuously lay eggs it makes your opponents bigger and bigger until eventually they take up the whole screen and decimate you with a smash.

Thanks, Michelle

Super Smash Bros 3DS Is Currently Number One In Best-Sellers On Amazon.com

Super Smash Bros on the Nintendo 3DS is currently sitting at number one in the Amazon.com best-sellers charts. The chart is updated hourly so it could well change, but it appears as though there’s plenty of demand for the Nintendo 3DS version which will arrive on October 3rd. We are still waiting for a release date for the Wii U version which should also do rather well.

Thanks to those who sent this in.

UK Charts: Fantasy Life Enters At 10, Hyrule Warriors Slips To 15

This week’s UK charts are now in courtesy of GFK Chart-Track. It’s an unsurprising victory for FIFA 15, which claims the first four spots in the chart, while Destiny follows closely behind. Level-5’s Fantasy Life – a cross-over between life simulation and RPG – has managed to nab a place at the tail-end of the individual top 10. For those still uncertain on the game’s potential, make sure you take a look at our Fantasy Life review, which garnered a solid 8 score.

While Fantasy Life grabs a top 10 spot, Hyrule Warriors slips down from last week’s 4 to 15, with Tomodachi Life not far behind at 17. EA’s FIFA 15 makes a surprising debut at 23 for the Nintendo Wii and beats the PC entry which lands at 28. Elsewhere, Mario Kart 8 gears up for a small flurry of movement up the chart and sits at 26.
