Rumours are bubbling of a new Minecraft-esque Lego game created by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and TT Games, called LEGO Worlds. Apparently, someone found a promotion for the game on the back of the instructions for the 60097 City Square set which is coming out this month. The link on the picture currently doesn’t work, but perhaps it’s not live yet. It’s not been officially announced or even teased at this point, so it’ll be interesting to see what pops up in the coming months! Especially since they already have the LEGO Dimensions in the works. What would you think of a Lego/Minecraft mash up?
We know that there’s a new Skylanders game coming out this year, but other than that, not a lot has been confirmed. However, there are a lot of rumours swirling around about the new game. The first of which was that it will apparently feature vehicles, this is backed up by the fact that American motorsports competitor, Travis Pastrana, wrote an Instagram post saying: “Was filming some cool stuff for a new Activision game called Skylanders Superchargers this weekend.” Notice the name Skylanders Superchargers? It was deleted very shortly after, indicating that it’s probably the name of the new game. Another rumour emerged more recently, the image above is from Danish retailer Fætter BR’s database, and clearly lists the game on a number of platforms. Nothing has been confirmed still, but it’s looking very likely!
A Reddit user that claims to work at GameStop has outlined the dire situation ahead for collectors of the fourth wave of amiibo figures. The retail chain will only have a limited amount of stock of shipments and won’t be holding amiibo. However, there is good news, as Shulk is meant to be restocked sometime in June.
Throw away account for several reasons. Here’s what we are dealing with at gamestop. Mods can verify this however they want but I’m not using my own separate verified account.
- Corporate is raining down on stores stemming from the small Marth restock. Enough people complained about holding amiibos that it got store policy changed. Here’s the kicker though, as far as I can tell, it doesn’t affect employees, just customer holds. At my store personally, several people complained who I know benefited from amiibo holding themselves in the past. they where just pissed they didn’t call first. So the reality now is that from now on at gamestop…its first come first served when it comes to store shipments that aren’t preorders/web-in-store.
- Our shipments of wave 4 SUCK. plain and simple. from 0 robins/lucina to just one of each. 1,2, or no nesses. Surprisingly we’ll have plenty of silver mario’s for whatever that’s worth. Memo stated that we will not be re-supplying wave 4. Once we run out, we are out. you can camp gamestop if you want, but as a collector myself…I’m not. I can spend my time better at another store with much better stock. (this doesn’t mean there won’t be the abnormal store here and there that might have decent stock)
- e-mailed customer solutions about the shulk shipments from february. They told me it’s now between June 2nd-June 9th.
Edit 1: The email said we are going to post in hand stock I believe the morning of 5/29 right on the door. So, you’ll be able to see what we have while you wait in line.
Can’t post the actual memo and email. Especially because of the warning up top, not risking my job for this one folks. maybe a more carefree SGA and up will provide it. can’t really think of anything else at the moment. I’ll field questions for a bit though, so ask away.
TL;DR wave 4 stock sucks, it’s harder to get amiibos with us now
A possible new Wii U title has been spotted at US retailer Target. A listing has appeared for a game titled Project VAN which we have heard nothing about. It could be a simple mistake, but with E3 fast approaching there’s the possibility that the game could be announced during Nintendo’s E3 Digital Conference.
There’s one big rumour circulating around Japanese message board 2Chan which claims that Paper Mario is currently in development for Wii U and is being developed by Intelligent Systems. The brochure above was handed out at a Japanese job expo booth, which is apparently proof that the person below was at the event. If it is legitimate then it’s likely to be officially announced during E3 next month. It could either be a new game or a remaster of an existing one. Guess we shall have to wait to find out.

Once we have the NPD results through Nintendo usually gives us an update on how their software is doing in the United States. We usually get sales data for key Nintendo titles. A member on the NeoGAF forums who is apparently privy to NPD data has revealed how many units certain games have sold in the United States. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker has sold 326,000, ZombiU has sold 204,000 units, Bayonetta 2 has sold 157,000 copies and finally, The Wonderful 101 has sold 104,000 units. These numbers haven’t been confirmed by Nintendo so you’ll just have to trust the NeoGAF poster who published the US sales data.
If you saw our previous post, you’ll know there’s a little rumour going around that The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess could be coming to the Nintendo 3DS, after someone apparently got a hit on StreetPass of someone who’d recently been playing Twilight Princess 3D.
Obviously being assumed to be a fake, twitter user TaDavidID then posted a photo of his full console to add some credibility.
But, we still weren’t convinced. So, as he promised, he posted a Vine of him bumping into the Mii on StreetPass again. It’s enough to get your heart racing a bit, especially when other people have tweeted about finding the same thing.
A reddit user pointed out that these can easily be faked through the use of Homebrew applications, to make it look like you’re playing any game which, according to this report, looks like what happened.
