We seems to be getting drippings of Splatoon information thanks to the recently opened Japanese Twitter account. Thankfully those fine folk over at NeoGAF have been translating the tweets to give us more details about the highly anticipated Wii U game. Here’s the latest information in English.
“Investigation report from the Squid Research Lab. This mysterious person (sorry, squid) guides the protagonist in Hero Mode. It seems that in the peaceful squid world he is the only man (sorry, squid) that has noticed the plans of the Octopus Corps. Anyway, he’s totally seeing our cameraman here.”
“We have confirmed the existence of various contraptions in Hero Mode. This cannon can shoot powerful ink bullets. Could it be something that the Octopus Corps set up, or was it someone else entirely? Be that as it may, it looks like a rather technologically advanced device.”
“Report from the Squid Research Lab. This guys name is “Denchinamazu” [Lit: Battery Catfish]. This world appears to run on the energy produced by this catfish. The protagonist enters the Octopus Army Corps base alone in order to return the stolen Denchinamazu.”

Great news for those looking forward to Xenoblade Chronicles X as the director has revealed that the game is now almost complete. Xenoblade Executive Director Tetsuya Takahashi announced the news via Twitter where he also shared some more tidbits about the highly anticipated Sci Fi RPG. Here’s what he had to say to the fans.
“The development [of Xenoblade Chronicles X] did have its twists and turns, but we were able to finish up (just a little more until it’s complete) Xenoblade Chronicles X in the sci-fi world we aimed for from the beginning in a seamless open-world with online play, and I feel that we were able to overcome several obstacles as far as game development goes.”
“With the vast world that was shown when Iwata-san introduced the game in the Nintendo Direct the other day, it would bring me great pleasure to have you folks get to thoroughly explore it.”
Thanks to those who sent this in.
If you want the Lucario Amiibo figure then I’m afraid you’ll only be able to purchase it from Toys R Us in the United States. Nintendo has previously said that certain Amiibo figures will be retailer exclusive and that seems to be the case with Lucario. The Amiibo figure will retail for $13.99 and is available for pre-order right now.
