Two New Weapons Heading To Splatoon Tomorrow

UPDATE: Nintendo of America confirms that the weapons will also heading to North America today.


Less than a week since the addition of the Splash-o-matic, Nintendo will be adding two new weapons to Splatoon.

The announcement, which comes by way of Nintendo of Europe’s Twitter, shared a few screenshots (below) of the L-3 Nozzlehose and the Custom E-litre 3K. These both should be coming tomorrow in Europe; there is still no mention about the US release.

We will likely hear more about Splatoon at Nintendo’s E3 Digital Event — stay tuned for more news.

Nicalis Posts Image Of Binding Of Isaac Rebirth On The New Nintendo 3DS

It’s been a long time coming but owners of the New Nintendo 3DS will eventually be able to play The Binding of Isaac Rebirth on their handheld. Developer Nicalis teased fans with an image of the game in action on Twitter which had a few people salivating at the mouth for the New Nintendo 3DS version. As I’ve mentioned in the post the game will only be playable on the New Nintendo 3DS and not then original Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo 3DS XL.

 

Bill Trinen Messes Up Firing Joke From E3 Announcement On Twitter

bill_trinen_twitter_trintroll

Nintendo just announced their plans for E3, introducing back the Nintendo World Championship in a funny and pleasant video. Part of the video at the end joked that Bill Trinen was fired, but if you saw his Twitter earlier on, it looks like he spoiled that joke. He had tweeted an hour earlier saying: “I guess nothing can last forever.” Shocking Nintendo fans into thinking he’d left, when in reality it was supposed to be part of the joke, which he’d tweeted an hour early after getting confused with timezones! He’d also changed his Twitter bio to “used to work at Nintendo” but since then he’s changed it to “still works at Nintendo.” Poor Bill, Time zones are hard!

Unlock Loads Of Awesome Yoshi Patterns In Yoshi’s Woolly World

Nintendo of Europe just tweeted revealing that in the upcoming Yoshi’s Woolly World, if you collect the 5 Wonder Wools in each level, you’ll unlock a new, unique pattern for your Yarn Yoshi. A different pattern for each level means loads of new patterns, so your Yoshi can be tailored to suit you. This adds more challenge to the game, as you’ll probably want to collect all the Wonder Wools to see what pattern you can unlock! Its such a lovely little addition. Take a look at some of the patterns in the adorable video embedded above, with an amazing abundance of Yarn Yoshis.

Nintendo Of America Twitter Makes Awkward Typo #WiggerWednesday

nintendo_of_america_twitter_wigger_wednesdayOops! Nintendo of America wanted to invite you to decide which is better, Waluigi Wednesday or Wiggler Wednesday. But looks like someone’s fingers slipped on the keyboard, resulting in this slightly inappropriate hashtag, #WiggerWednesday. They were quick on the ball though as it was immediately deleted, but someone was quicker and managed to grab a screenshot. Looks like an employee might be getting a slap on the wrist, poor guy.

 

Rumour Update: Twilight Princess 3D Rumour Busted?

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.

9MID1BbThey had me going for a minute there, but this is likely to be fake, as much as we’d all love to see a remake of Twilight Princess.
