Hyrule Warriors Lana

Lana Shows Off Her Flower Power In New Hyrule Warriors Video

Hyrule Warriors is set to be released next month, and leading up to that we are set to get a bunch gameplay videos displaying all of the nuances in the game’s combat.

In this latest video we get to see Lana showing off all of her flower power as she bulldozes through dozens of poor and defenseless bad guys. Check out the video below. [youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ksMGhewlPk’%5D

Hyrule Warriors is set to be released for the Wii U on September 26th.

Majora's Mask

Majora's Mask Fan Project Is Looking Great

Two Zelda fans, named Paco Martinez and Pablo Belmonte, have been working on an HD version of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask for the past couple years, and they have just released a new video documenting the progress.

In the video we get to see a slew of character models like Link, the Happy Mask salesmen and several masks, as well as several locations. The footage looks absolutely fantastic, so I highly recommend you check it out below. [youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0zhSCoGePvk’%5D

It’s worth noting that this game is not meant to be playable, but is instead being used to show Nintendo once it is completed. They are hoping that the footage will convince the company to go ahead and remake their own version of the game.

Boss Galaga Looking To Suck Up Super Smash Bros. Characters

Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai has teased another interesting bit from the upcoming Super Smash Bros. games, this time electing to show off a cameo character known from the classic arcade shooter Galaga.

The character in question is Boss Galaga, who is infamous for trying to pull the player’s ship in with its tractor beam and double its power. Boss Galaga will do the same thing in Super Smash Bros., though this time it will just lift you up off the screen.

Sakurai said the following about Boss Galaga:

“If you get caught in the Boss Galaga item’s tractor beam, it will carry you away to the top of the screen. You can shoot it down, but it won’t join you in battle for double the firepower.”

Super Smash Bros. is set to release for the 3DS on October 3rd and the Wii U by the end of the year.

Hyrule Warriors Features Trailer Wii U

Hyrule Warriors Features Trailer Recaps Everything We Know So Far

Hyrule Warriors is just a couple of months away from its launch, and now a new features trailer showcases everything that we have learned so far about the game. If you’ve missed all of the brief trailers released previously, then this one will get you all caught up.

In the trailer we get a look at all of the game’s playable characters, which range from the obvious Link and Zelda to the not so obvious Darunia and Ruto. It also goes into some of the game’s features like local co-op, hidden items and mini-games.

Check out the features trailer below. [youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2c8EEXL3L8c’%5D

Hyrule Warriors is being developed by Omega Force, Team Ninja and Nintendo SPD for the Wii U. It is currently set to be released on September 26th, 2014.

Sonic Boom

Sonic Boom Games Coming Out This November

Sonic’s latest adventure, called Sonic Boom, has finally been given a release date. The 3DS version is called Shattered Crystal and is coming out on November 11th, while the Wii U version is called Rise of Lyric and is coming out on November 18th.

The Sonic Boom games marks a huge departure from the Sonic formula, as neither game is being developed by Sonic Team. Shattered Crystal is being developed by Sanzaru Games, while the Rise of Lyric is being developed by Big Red Button.

It’s interesting that these titles will be exclusive to Nintendo platforms, but I’m still really worried about how their overall quality will turn out. The Sonic series has been more misses than hits, and the fact that these games will supposedly line up with a kids TV show doesn’t exactly spark confidence.

Project CARS

Project CARS Launches On Wii U In 2015

Slightly Mad Studios’ Project CARS will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC sometime in November, but somewhere along the way the Wii U version fell out of the loop.

However, Marketing and PR Director Lee Kirton tweeted the following message:

“To confirm @WMDCars #projectcars will release November on #ps4 #xboxone #pc and #WiiU is coming 2015.”

So, the poor old Wii U version hasn’t been canned entirely, it’s just gonna take a little while longer to get that one out on the shelves. This seems to be the pattern as of late, as the more powerful versions of games that also stand to sell a hell of a lot more are given priority over the Wii U version. As long as they give it the proper attention and don’t make it a cheap downgrade then all will be well in the world.

Super Smash Bros. Wii U

Mario's Alternate Super Smash Bros. Costume Salutes The American Flag

Everyone knows that Super Mario is an Italian plumber made by the Japanese, but we also know that he is most loyal to the country that made him an icon. In the latest Super Smash Bros. games, Mario’s alternate costume prominently displays the American flag in all of its glory.

The news was revealed via the official Super Smash Bros. twitter account. It has also been noted that the costume was inspired by the NES Open Tournament Golf costume (which you can view here).

Check out Mario’s alternate costume below!
