Unseen64 have uncovered the existence of Super Mario Spikers which was under development for a very short period of time by the acclaimed Next Level Games. The site says it was a cancelled volleyball/wrestling hybrid game that was in the conceptualisation phase, but never made it past that.

‘It was a wrestling/volleyball hybrid with a game show slant. It was never released and was financed as more of a reward to Next Level for doing such a great job on MSC’

Here’s A Sales Comparison Of Super Smash Bros Sales In Japan

Twitter user Oscar Lemaire has put together a graph showing how well the Smash Bros series has done on the formats it’s been released on in Japan via Famitsu numbers. As you can see, the launch week for Super Smash Bros on the Nintendo 3DS was the biggest ever for the franchise. No doubt the Nintendo 3DS version will remain the best-selling until we get a new entry in the future.

Penguins Of Madagascar Announced For Wii U, Wii & Nintendo 3DS

Bandai Namco has revealed the Madagascar Penguins will be stirring up trouble on the Nintendo Wii, Wii U and 3DS this holiday season. Published by Little Orbit and in conjunction with DreamWorks Animation – who brought the successful How To Train Your Dragon 2 game earlier this year – comes a new adventure with the Penguins of Madagascar Videogame exclusively for Nintendo platforms.

In Penguins of Madagascar, players will follow in the footsteps of an elite penguin spy and are able to switch between the four penguins – Skipper, Kowalski, Private and Rico – at any given time. The game will coincide with the film’s release on December 5 and will launch November 28 for Europe and Australasia, with Bandai Namco handling the distribution. Check out the press release below for more information.

The four web-footed operatives, Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private, uncover a nefarious plot by the evil octopus, Dave (Dr.Octavious Brine) to destroy the penguin world as we know it. Players will travel to top-secret locales and embark on covert missions to thwart Dave’s evil plans.

Players will be able to play as the four penguins and instantly swap between them depending on the situation encountered.  For example, Rico, a demolitions expert, loves to blow things to smithereens while Skipper can dish out his stun slap to give enemy octopi high-powered smackdowns!  Players can solve puzzles by choosing the penguin whose natural skills are best suited for the task.

“Following our success with DreamWorks’ How to Train Your Dragon 2 this summer, we are once again thrilled to work with them to bring Penguins of Madagascar to gamers later this year,” said Matt Scott, president of Little Orbit. “Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private stole the show in previous Madagascar films with their humor and crazy antics.”
