Ice Climbers in Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS

Image
The Ice Climbers, who first made an appearance as the NES representative in Super Smash Bros. Melee, is, to most people's surprise, not returning to Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS, at least not that we know of. The director of Super Smash Bros., Masahiro Sakurai, did say the development team was having trouble putting the Ice Climbers inside the Nintendo 3DS version of the game, which means at one time the Ice Climbers were playable in development.
Evidence of the Ice Climbers being playable sometime during development has been found inside the game. The polar bear enemy from Ice Climbers is included in Smash Run mode.
Also, if you play on the Yoshi's Island with a Villager and Dr. Marios and K.O them like crazy, instead of cheering "Murabito!" or "Dr. Mario!", they will start yelling the names of the Ice Climbers: "Popo! Nana! Popo! Nana!" Check out GameXplain's video on the Ice Climbers Glitch:

Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire-The Battle over Land and Sea!

Image
The newest trailer is shown above, detailing everything we've learned from this month's CoroCoro.


CoroCoro magazine for September 2014 was recently leaked to the public with Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire news featuring three new megas. The new mega Pokemon are Gallade, who is Wally's signature Pokemon this time around, Camerupt, Team Magma's signature Pokemon, and Sharpedo, Team Aqua's signature Pokemon. This is the first time we've seen of Wally in the new games, but other than that, these mega Pokemon were predictable and everyone expected Camerupt and Sharpedo, but Gallade was a nice surprise. Sharpedo has all it's stats increased (about +20 in every stat) and Camerupt has an increase in all it's stats as well but at the cost of some speed. Mega Sharpedo has the ability Strong Jaw and Mega Camerupt has the ability Sheer Force. We also got our look at the new move and ability Mega Groudon and Mega Kyogre have. Mega Groudon has a new ability c…

Super Smash Bros. 3DS News: Breaking Points and Wii U Release

Image
Circle Pads have been Reaching the Breaking Point
Ever since the Japanese release of Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, fans have been playing non-stop, whether it's trying to beat all of the modes in the full release or in North America with an early demo. Something that Nintendo did not expect happened to a lot of Smash Bros. fans recently though, their circle pads broke. The complaints of this issue have been going up on multiple forums for the last couple of days, and although it can be just a minor problem, like the cover coming off of the circle pad itself, sometimes the 3DS isn't so fortunate. Several photos have been taken with the circle being taken off of the area entirely. This seems to happen with standard Nintendo 3DS systems and not as often with the Nintendo 3DS XL. Lesson learned: don't play rough.
