One of the members of GameXplain has revealed that Nintendo of America is planning a closed media event for Super Smash Bros on the Nintendo 3DS. It’s expected to be the latest and possibly the final build for the game which launches on October 3rd.
Headed to PAX! I don’t know when exactly it is, but I can confirm that Nintendo is holding a closed media event for Smash 3DS with a new (final?) build of the game, and both Andre and I will be attending for GameXplain. I’ll bring you all the news and impressions I’m legally allowed to here (depending on NDAs) and we’ll of course be recording discussions if we’re allowed, so stay tuned!
New footage of Sonic Boom Shattered Crystal has found its way onto the internet ahead of PAX. The footage of the Nintendo 3DS title includes a mix of CGI and some fast paced gameplay footage which fans have come to expect from the series. The footage isn’t the best quality, but it’s to be expected as it’s a pre-release trailer.
Capcom announced today at its World of Capcom panel at PAX East that the company is developing a brand new Mega Man game.

Nintendo of America Tweeted an infographic that gives step-by-step instructions on how to blow a bubble; all you have to do is act like Kirby. This, of course, is related to Nintendo’s celebration of the round, pink hero’s 20th anniversary, in which the company plans to break a Guinness World Record by trying to make hundreds of PAX Prime attendees simultaneously blow chewing gum bubbles on September 1st.
Fans of Nintendo’s classic Kirby character will come together for a new Guinness World Records attempt for the most people blowing a chewing gum bubble simultaneously. At the PAX Prime conference on Sept. 1, these consumers will not only attempt to break the standing record of 304 participants but will also get the chance to win fun prizes, including Kirby’s Dream Collection: Special Edition. The event will help to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Kirby franchise and celebrate the upcoming Sept. 16 launch of Kirby’s Dream Collection: Special Edition for Wii.
