Well, this is interesting. US video game rental firm GameFly claims that 505 Games will be bringing Terraria to both the Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS. As you can see from the video posted above, the game is almost like a 2D Minecraft style RPG and has a strong emphasis on 2D combat. Let’s hope this is confirmed soon.
We all know Nintendo is sponsoring this year’s APEX event, which was a nice surprise. Now it turns out that some insiders are hinting that there will be a special game at the event for people to try out. With Nintendo sponsoring the event it wouldn’t be too far-fetched to guess that either Splatoon or Pokken Tournament will make a surprise appearance at the event. Whatever it is, it should be good.
Slightly disappointing news for Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker fans as it would appear as though the game may have sold no higher than 250k units in North America so far. Nintendo of America has yet to reveal official numbers for the game so we won’t know for sure, but it failed to break into the top ten best-selling video games in the United States during December.

Rumours are circulating online that KOS-MOS from the Xenosaga series could well be appearing in Bandai Namco’s upcoming Wii U exclusive, Project Treasure. Fans came to the conclusion when they spotted what appears to be her face in the preview trailer for the game. Bandai Namco hasn’t confirmed much about the title so any speculation remains fair game.

Nintendo may have accidentally revealed the existence of a new Metroid game for the Nintendo 3DS on its new ‘What is Nintendo 3DS’ page. Nintendo has listed a range of exclusive franchises for the platform and mentions Animal Crossing, Super Smash Bros, Pokemon, and then Metroid. I guess Metroid is technically on the Nintendo 3DS eShop, but that’s not really exclusive. Who knows? Maybe we might hear about it in a future Nintendo Direct.

Nintendo of America has yet to say when US consumers will be getting their hands on the New Nintendo 3DS. However, a source at GameStop has apparently revealed that the console will launch in the United States on February 13th. The company has apparently already received marketing material for the console in a few of its stores. This is just a rumour but it is expected in either February or March.

Tilmen from Nintendomination says he has heard word from a source that Nintendo Europe is planning to release the New Nintendo 3DS next month. Tilmen also says that there will be two bundles available to consumers. One of the bundles will come with The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D and another will come with Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. However, Tilmen says that these bundles will only be available with the New Nintendo 3DS and not the New Nintendo 3DS XL model, presumably due to limited edition Faceplates.
