Xenoblade Chronicles X looks set to become a great game, but what we don’t know too much about is its online functionality. Monolith Soft recently opened up a website for the game but what they didn’t expect was the amount of traffic it would bring and the site subsequently went down. In a blog post the company apologised and also said “Huh? Online elements? Of course [the game] will have some!”. So there you go, it will have online elements but no doubt we will have to wait a while to find out exactly that they are. Xenoblade Chronicles X will be released in Japan in Spring 2015 for Wii U.

As of October 2, 2014, new update data for Super Smash Bros. has been made available for download in the Nintendo eShop. Users will be required to download this update prior to using the software’s online multiplayer features. Because of this, we strongly recommend that all Super Smash Bros. players download and install this update data.

Reports are surfacing from Japanese image board 2Channel that players that decide to play as Peach in the For Glory game mode in Super Smash Bros on the Nintendo 3DS online are being given a one day online ban on suspicion of dishonest play. Japanese gamers have been trying to unravel why this is occurring and the main conclusion is that by using “Peach’s down+B attack (move that pulls out turnips) near the start of the battle, the game erroneously sees it as you’ve illegally brought an equipped item into the match” Here’s the transcript from 2Channel.
Q. After playing as Peach in the For Glory online mode, I was smacked with a 1-day ban on suspicion of dishonest play…
A. It’s a bug that has been reported by quite a number of players. The exact details are unclear at this moment, but it appears that if you were to use Peach’s down+B attack (move that pulls out turnips) near the start of the battle, the game erroneously sees it as you’ve illegally brought an equipped item into the match — that’s the most valid explanation that the community can come up with, for now.
It’s best that payers forgo using Peach in the For Glory mode for now.
Q. How long will the ban last?
A. The ban will last 1440 minutes, or effectively, for one full day.

We already know that Hyrule Warriors won’t feature an online co-op mode like previous titles, but instead the Adventure Mode will feature some kind of online connectivity. Hyrule Warriors Producer Yosuke Hayashihas told Game Informer that “The Adventure Mode features a ‘Network Link’ feature. This allows you to add a ‘Link’ to your maps whose level is based on other users’ play data. If you come to this Link’s aid and fight alongside him, you’ll get access to special bonuses.”
The official Nintendo website says that Hyrule Warriors will feature some form of online functionality. It won’t have online co-op, but will instead feature a special battle in adventure mode that will be playable online. We should get more details in the near future.
