Nintendo Selects Adds More Mario and Zelda Titles

Three new classic titles from popular Nintendo franchise will be added to the Nintendo Selects label of budget range.

Just like many other popular video game companies, Nintendo promotes some of their best-selling games under the label Nintendo Selects, which offer players some of their older titles within a budget range and that is only $19.99 each.

In a recent official announcement, they announced to add three new high-quality Nintendo 3DS games to their current collection of games starting from February 4, 2019 for players to get access to and have some good time with them.

Joining the catalog next month are ports of Star Fox 64 3D, Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS and The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D for the handheld consoles. The first one among the three actually a bit less-recent to be added to label compared to others.

The game came out back in 2015 as a side-scrolling 2D platformer for Wii U to take players to Mushroom Kingdom and rebuild it as they saw fit. There was also a feature to share these unique maps online for other players to download and have their own playthrough.

Next comes a title that is the sixth release from the mainline Legend of Zelda series, launched back on 2000 for Nintendo 64 and then on 2003 for GameCube. The story is set on an alternate reality of Hyrule where the Skull Kid has gain possession of a powerful ancient artifact called Majora's Mask.

The third one is a remake of the 1997 original action-packed space shooter title Star Fox 64 for 3DS that revolves around a journey of Fox McCloud where you take the classic Arwing ship to face-off enemies across the Lylat system.

Metroid Prime 4 Release Date Leaked

An accidental retail listing has leaked the possible release date of upcoming Metroid Prime 4 for Nintendo Switch.

The announcement for first-person adventure game Metroid Prime 4 for Nintendo Switch was made back in E3 2017 and Nintendo has not revealed anything else yet, probably because of having a plan of doing that on the upcoming Nintendo Direct Mini January 2019.

However, a recent leak may have revealed a possible release date for the game but before we talk about that in details, we would suggest you to take all of this with a grain of salt for the nature of these leaks; they are still not official confirmation.

Even though it is not anywhere near the way Walmart Canada accidentally leaked unannounced E3 2018 games last year, Czech online video game retail store SuperGamer have made a listing for the game that reveals the release date being November 29, 2019.

Series protagonist Samus Aran maybe returning by the end of the year after all in one of the most highly anticipated releases if this actually turns out to be true and we do hope that it is. The description says it is the "planned release date" and we may get a confirmation at E3 2019.

Players have their reasons to be hyped out for the game as the entire trilogy is praised by the critics and the recent release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has made people nostalgic about the galactic bounty hunter Galactic Federation, who is also a part of the roster of fighters.

Nintendo pushing the release window during the holiday season of the year makes perfect sense as they can sell a huge number of copies for Metroid Prime 4 for Nintendo Switch consoles with ease and we are only ten months away from the launch now.

Humble Store Brings Nintendo Switch and 3DS Games

Select first-party Nintendo games for Nintendo Switch and 3DS Games are digitally available on Humble Store.

Although the digital storefront of Humble Store generally sells video game titles and offers limited-time bundles for PC throughout redeem codes for Steam, they have rarely partnered with game developers of other platforms for such ventures.

Joining with them now is major developer/publisher company Nintendo to offer chance to purchase some of the most recent titles released for players on Nintendo Switch and 3DS consoles aside from Amazon or their very own eShop.

After making an official announcement on Tweet about the development, Humble Store has made the news public for all.

Some of the bestsellers and latest release like Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Mario Tennis Aces, Pokémon Let’s Go!, Splatoon 2, Super Mario Odyssey, Super Mario Party and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has made it to the initial list of Switch games.

In terms of 3DS titles you can find Pokémon Ultra Moon, Pokémon Ultra Sun, Super Mario Bros. 3 and the original Legend of Zelda 3DS alongside Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time among over 40 other listings. Are you ready to get on board nostalgia train yet?

Currently, Humble is keeping their Nintendo ventures strictly within U.S. and a $5 discount on games worth $19.99 and above for Humble account holders. In addition to games, they are also offering expansions, season passes and subscriptions for Nintendo Switch Online.

Even though a select portion of most purchases made through Humble Bundle are donated to charity, first-party Nintendo games sold on their web store doesn't qualify for either charity contributions or Humble Rewards, which we think kinda sucks.

Nintendo Officially Confirms Bowsette is Not Canon

Nintendo has officially confirmed that Bowsette is not canon and will not be in New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe.

When Nintendo announced to release a Nintendo Switch port of the popular 2D side-scrolling platform game New Super Mario Bros. U from Wii U, they introduced two additional playable characters, Nabbit and Toadette that led to the creation of fan-made character Bowsette.

The revelation of Toadette transforming into a character akin to Princess Peach using the power of Super Crown has gave players the idea of tinkering other characters and fans ended up converting Bowser but the company has finally denied that idea officially.

Developer/publisher Nintendo has recently set the record straight by confirming that the Super Crown power-up transformation is only for Toadette to transform into Peachette, therefore clearing out any possibility of Bowser to ever become a princess using it.

It came as an informal notice in the official website for New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe where information section for Super Crown entry states "only Toadette can use this item!" and thus answered the question that whether or not King Koopa can become a pretty princess for all.

The initial concept of King of the Koopas sharing the characteristics of Peach game Twitter user ayyk92 idea to come up with a few panels, drawing a cartoon depicting the origin for the character of Bowsette and the rest is history.

Not only had it gone on to become popular meme online that spread like a wildfire with waves of itchy fan arts flooding social media and various photo sharing sites. Even a Bowsette porn parody came out shortly afterwards to cash in the hype.

Mods to add the character in games like Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and New Super Mario Bros. Wii were created. This arguably becomes one of the most popular fan creations to ever exist that became a headache for Nintendo.

Just because Nintendo has shot down the concept of Bowsette a week before the release of New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe on January 11, 2019 and denied a place in canon doesn't mean that fans would stop loving the character or making more creative fan arts anytime soon.

Besides, they can always find other ways to include Princess Koopa into the game or even made a nod to if they ever want, considering the social media phenomenon it became overnight. However, we are really thankful that we didn't saw Luigi in such form or whatsoever.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC Fighters Leaked

Details of unannounced DLC fighters of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate are leaked ahead of official announcement.

Crossover fighting game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate from developer Bandai Namco Studios and publisher Nintendo has become the fastest-selling title on Nintendo Switch without any sign to slowing down on sales anytime soon and there is more to come.

Lately, data-miners dug into the source code of the game to find out what seems like new fighters roster, yet to be revealed officially in upcoming DLC. Although what they discovered appears to be some codename, fans were quick to find evidence to speculate on.

SSBU will include five brand-new downloadable fighters that would also be a part of "Fighters Pass". The first one of them was revealed to be Joker from Persona 5 at The Game Awards 2018 and the rest four remained unannounced.

Game director Masahiro Sakurai probably was to announce some of the rest during the next Nintendo Direct but the recent findings already has some strong hint for the identities of the unannounced fighters. Since they are still unconfirmed, we suggest you to take this with a grain of salt.

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING MAY CONTAIN POTENTIAL SPOILERS FOR SUPER SMASH BROS. ULTIMATE.

Data-miner jam1garner has posted three code names of DLC characters found within game codes on Twitter that you can see below.

Back in December 9, 2018, leaked info about Ultimate's DLC characters were posted by a user on Japanese image-board site 5Channel (formerly known as 2chan), where they also mentioned about the inclusion of Joker from P5 into the roster and his stage being Mementos.

No one really cared about it that much in the beginning but when his prediction of Persona 5 R title was officially revealed by Atlus, people started paying attention. He also claimed that P5R will be released on the first half of 2019, which we are yet to find out though.

There was also unconfirmed claim for four new characters joining the roster of SSBU and they are Doomguy of the Doom series, Erdrick from the Dragon Quest series, Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden and the default player character Steve of Minecraft.

The claim on Dragon Quest's Erdrick received more credibility upon the datamine leak of code that mentions Jack, Brave and Packu. Here, Jack is referred to be Joker and Packu is a nod to Pakkun Flower, Japanese name for pre-order DLC character Piranha Plant from Super Mario.

Now all that left is "Brave", which translates to Yuusha in Japanese, which also stands for hero and Erdrick belongs to the hero class of Dragon Quest. Moreover, the character has a legacy of appearing throughout the series, notably the first three games.

Therefore, he is a worthy representative of the franchise on the crossover arena of Ultimate and the codename "Brave" fits his description very well. Reportedly, Anlucia from Dragon Quest X is to serve as an alternate skin for.

The source also claimed of a game from Square Enix classic series to arrive on Switch that turned out to be Dragon Quest XI. The hint of Ryu from Ninja Gaiden to make it to SSBU can also be a re-release of the game in 2019 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the franchise.

The arrival of Doomguy may be revealed at E3 2019 to promote the upcoming release of Doom Eternal, also coming to Nintendo Switch. Steve from Minecraft was meant to debut on the launch of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate but shelved as a DLC to promote Minecraft: Dungeons in 2019.

Breath of the Wild Twitch Streamer Finds Tutorial After 95 Hours of Playthrough

Twitch Streamer negaoryx finds combat tutorial after doing blind playthrough of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for nearly 95 hours.

Have you ever been grinding a new game that you have recently encountered and after many days or hours of labor you find some system or weapon that can totally changes how you make progress in the game? Surely, some of you can relate.

Almost the same has happened with Twitch streamer negaoryx who had been playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and then at one point came across a tutorial for combat after spending more than 95 hours.

In her more than three days and a half worth of blind playthrough, she took down three Divine Beasts of the game and then went her way back to Kakariko Village, where she encounters a Guardian Scout at Ta'loh Naeg Shrine for a trail.

It is then that she discovered tutorial for useful combat techniques like backflip, charged attack, flurry rush, parry and side hop. Even though these moves could've come in handy, she came all the way without using these moves.

Learning something so late that you should've known at the beginning can be a bit frustrating knowing you could've made it easier but nevertheless negaoryx handled it pretty well. It also proves that while those moves can help you fare better but not essential exactly.

She later took Twitter to address her eye-opening experience with a highlighted clip from part of her original stream that also got attention.

Some of her followers and viewers pointed out to her that she coming all the way to the certain point without those tools in her kit is a proof to her skill. Besides, she was not much of a fan to Legend of Zelda series and the game is designed in a way that pushes players to find their own way of solutions.

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is an action-adventure masterpiece title from developer/publisher Nintendo, which came out in early 2017 on Nintendo Switch and Wii U. The game won "Game of the Year" on the same year and broke sales records in many regions.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate to Add Joker from Persona 5

Nintendo took the grand stage of The Game Awards 2018 to showcase a brand-new fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

However, there are more characters coming in post-launch period and a day before release, Nintendo revealed the game's 76th fighter at The Game Awards 2018. Joker from one of last year's best JRPG, Persona 5 will be the first DLC fighter for the game.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Leaked Before Launch

Only two weeks before the release, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is leaked online and fans can't stand the spoilers!

Although crossover fighting game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate from developer Bandai Namco Studios and publisher Nintendo is still more than a week away from release worldwide on December 7, it's already out online ahead of the launch.

Pirates have somehow gotten their hands on an early copy which they ripped and uploaded online, revealing potential spoilers online for the most hotly anticipated Nintendo Switch title of upcoming holiday season of this year.

A latest release from the Super Smash Bros. series, the title is now Switch's biggest pirated game ever despite all of the effort Nintendo took to hype it up over the months and keeping everything related to the game tightly wrapped.

Though the company is taking actions by issuing takedown notices to various YouTubers who has been uploading videos or music clips from the game, fans are highly concerned over the fact that the spoiling details are still out there.

RELATED: Super Smash Bros. Comes to Nintendo Switch

The community is expressing their utter disgust and outrage on Discord, Reddit, Twitter and other social media for anyone who are about to ruin their experience of SSBU beforehand without any spoiler warnings in advance.

This is very important for the fans of this series as every piece of information they need to know about the game should be coming directly from game director Masahiro Sakurai or Nintendo. Some fans even believe that they shouldn't even know anything at all, which is quite a stretch to be honest.

RELATED: Nintendo Direct Confirms New Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters

Of course many of the game details like the character roster and stages are something players ought to know at early point because they are great selling points but many elements of the title were still left for the fans to uncover when the game releases.

The pirates didn't stop at revealing stuffs like how and when to unlock certain playable characters or the music tracks; they even went far ahead by leaking many details about the World of Light Adventure mode, something worth a story for SSBU.

Report says that, the pirated version of the game first showed up on a popular Switch piracy community WarezNX and even though the group's administrator attempted to stop the leak by banning all lower level users from server but couldn't stop the inevitable.

Parties involved in this piracy might have gotten their hands on an early copy from YouTubers or any journalists reviewing the game, before they leaked it online. Leaking of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate prior release is no mere accident and we guess people at WarezNX may actually know how that happened.
