Sakurai Went Out To Buy Amiibos But They Were All Sold Out

Oh dear. It seems as though Super Smash Bros creator Masahiro Sakurai was determined to get the new Sheik, Lucario, Meta Knight and Rosalina Amiibo figures only to find out they were all sold out. Given Mr Sakurai’s status, I’m sure he will be able to get them somehow. It goes to show just how popular the figures have been worldwide since they launched alongside Super Smash Bros.

Thanks, Shuhei Yoshida

UK Charts: Captain Toad Slips Out Of Top 40, Super Smash Bros Is A Non-Mover

This week’s UK individual charts are now in courtesy of GFK Chart-Track and UKIE. It’s a crying shame for Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker as the solo adventure slips out of the top 40 entirely after its wonderful debut at 14 last week. Perhaps the Captain is off snoozing somewhere while many multi-platform games continue to dominate the chart, including Grand Theft Auto V, which refuses to budge from the top spot for its fourth consecutive week, and is closely followed by FIFA 15 and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

Further down the chart, Super Smash Bros – now the only remaining Wii U title – is a non-mover at 32, while Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire hover either aside at 35 and 30, respectively. You can take a look at the UK top 40 individual chart in full below.

Sakurai Talks About Why He Included Wii Fit Trainer And Villager In Super Smash Bros

No one really anticipated the arrival of Wii Fit Trainer and The Villager from Animal Crossing in Super Smash Bros on the Nintendo 3DS and the Wii U. In a recent interview with Nintendo Dream, Super Smash Bros creator Masahiro Sakurai said that he wanted to have some fun new characters that have individual traits which he could expand upon. Here’s what he had to say about the inclusion of both characters.

ND: Not only guest characters were shocking, but Wii Fit Trainer as well. It was a character no one saw coming, right?

MS: Yes, that’s right. Zero, none… (laughs)

(everyone laughs)

MS: For Super Smash Bros. Brawl, it was discussed that non-combatant-like characters wouldn’t be added, but this time an important aspect of the concept was “if that character is included, could interesting things be done and could that fighter express individual traits?” When making this game, it was necessary to think very seriously “how to create new fun things”. I was able to think in my head the way how Wii Fit Trainer and Villager would operate so therefore they were included. Games must be completed properly, and in order to have fun gameplay for you and your opponent, each character has to have individuality. The present Smash Bros. was done by giving importance to that.

ND: By the way, did you realize Trainer as something to put into a Smash game at the time of the release of Wii Fit?

MS: No, that’s not the case. I don’t think about new characters etc. if I don’t have to for making a new Smash Bros. game.

Yes. Although I received consultation on events and such, the schedule of what gets announced and when all was decided beforehand. That is so things like deadlines for the movies were arranged accordingly.

Thanks, White Eagle

GameStop Will Have A Bundle On January 2nd With Super Smash Bros, GameCube Controller And GameCube Adapter

Still want the immensely hard to find GameCube adapter? Well GameStop will be offering a bundle on January 2nd. The bundle includes a copy of the magnificent Super Smash Bros Wii U, a GameCube adapter and a GameCube controller for $109.07. It doesn’t seem as though the retailer will be selling the GameCube adapter on its own, so if you don’t yet have Super Smash Bros Wii U then this could be the perfect bundle for you.

Thanks, GOD
