French gaming website Gamesblog is reporting that a Mario Kart 8 Wii U bundle will be sold in Europe. The bundle includes a 32GB Wii U Premium console with a copy of the highly anticipated karting title. It also includes a one week trail of Wii Karaoke U. The bundle will apparently retail for 299 Euros.
Raiden could be appearing in the forthcoming Super Smash Bros game for the Nintendo 3DS and the Wii U. Reuben Langdon said “Raiden was always a character that I had wanted to play. I did end up playing him on Super Smash Bros; so I did end up playing him eventually. Not to the extent that he is in the other games.” Whether Raiden is playable character, or an Assist Trophy, remains to be seen.
French publication Gamesblog is reporting that there’s a second Assassin’s Creed game coming this year and it’s for “last-gen” consoles, which means Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The publication and Kotaku hasn’t heard whether this game will be coming to the Wii U. Ubisoft have already announced a new Assassin’s Creed game called Assassin’s Creed Unity which is coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
“Comet will take place in and around 1758; that it will star a sailor named Shay who betrays the captain of his ship; and that it’s set on the Atlantic Ocean.Comet, GameBlog says, will continue the nautical theme established in last year’s Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.”
“This fall’s last-gen Assassin’s Creed will indeed be set in North America and star a protagonist named Shay, who is a member of the Templars, the assassin-hating order that has traditionally served as primary antagonist in the Assassin’s Creed games.”
“We also hear that Comet will let you go to New York and do a great deal of sailing along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. One source describes the game as a cross between Assassin’s Creed III and the Freedom Cry DLC for Assassin’s Creed IV. Sources also say that Haytham Kenway and Adewalé will make appearances, among other returning AC characters.”
It’s not April 1st yet, but Couch Jockeyz believe that they have insider information which suggests that Microsoft exclusive TitanFall from EA is coming to the Wii U. The publication believes that the acclaimed online first person shooter is coming to Wii U at the same time as the Xbox 360 version due to Nintendo paying a substantial amount of money to EA. The site claims EA is to make an announcement at the end of the month. I wouldn’t hold your breath.

Online retailer NewEgg currently has Mario Kart 8 up for pre-order. The interesting thing is is that the description says that gamers will be able to customise their vehicles and build their own tracks in the game. This hasn’t been confirmed by Nintendo, but if this is true then it’s a more than welcome addition to the Mario Kart franchise.
Mario Kart 8 Wii U is a new game for the Wii U. It features new elements such as customizing bikes and designing your own tracks. It is the sequel to the game Mario Kart 7.
