Hyrule Warriors To Receive Tons of DLC

Koei-Tecmo has announced their plans for Hyrule Warriors DLC at this year’s Tokyo Game Show. Among this will be three new playable characters, available for free: Volga, Wizzro, and Cia.

K-T has also announced four packs of paid DLC: First is the Master Quest pack, coming in October. It will include a new weapon, new scenario, Adventure map, and two costumes.

Next is the Twilight Princess map in November, which contains another weapon, Adventure map, and two costumes, as well as a new character.

January brings us the Majora’s Mask pack, which boasts two new characters, three costumes, and Adventure map.

Finally, the Boss (or Ganon) pack arrives in February and will feature two new game modes.

Also, ordering all packs together will net you a Dark costume for Link!

Are you excited for this DLC? What characters do you think will be included in the Twilight Princess and Majora’s Mask packs?

Any of you remember the Game & Watch Galleries? What a clever and fun way to celebrate Nintendo’s early handheld history with revamped G&W minigames! The additions of Nintendo characters and cheery music did wonders for the presentation as well. This remix of the “Octopus” theme comes from Xtreme Thomas on YouTube.

Unfortunately, we’ll have to say no. Sakurai confirmed some time ago that the two versions will have the same roster, and a recent interview with Famitsu outlined the reasons for cutting the pair. If it were simple time constraints, we’d humour the idea of making them DLC; but actual hardware limitations are a whole other issue. We’re not ones to say something is impossible, but we’re afraid that at this point it would take a miracle for them to return.

Mr. Game and Watch: Analyzed!

Face here! Everyone’s favorite quirky, retro… What is he!?!? 

Well, regardless of whether he’s just a man drawn in a different art style that can turn into an octopus for some reason, or some shapeshifting two dimensional Eldritch horror from another universe, Mr. Game and Watch is back! What’s new for Nintendo’s oldest hero and what’s the same? Let’s find out!

Dark Pit: Analyzed!

image

Smash Bros has seen its doctors, its Toon characters, its spacies and its alternate timeline selves, but Super Smash Bros 3DS is the first game in the series to include a ‘Dark’ version of another smasher as a fully playable character.  Dark Pit’s inclusion in Smash Bros has brought about stares and potentially one of the rockiest welcome parties anyone in the series has ever been through.  But he’s here, and if you asked him what he thought about your opinion, he’d probably respond with little else than a smug anime teen sneer.

You rapscallion, you. 

Dark Pit is a clone through and through and one of the biggest requests we’ve gotten since the reveal of the final roster is to do a breakdown of what sets him apart from his light counterpart.  So without further ado, let’s see what this guy’s all about.

Sakurai has given an interview with Famitsu magazine in which he delved into several aspects of the new Smash Bros, including, notably, the absence of two-time veteran Ice Climbers. 

"It seems they were running in the Wii U version, but due to the required hardware power, the team couldn’t make them work in the 3DS game. There wasn’t as high a priority given to series that are unlikely to have another installment at this time."

The Icies may be gone, but they live on in our hearts.  When you really think about it, the decision to cut them for the sake of quality in the game was probably really hard to make.  We’re sure the team did what they could.

Hey I’m not sure if you’ve seen this already but have you checked out the #PostYourRoster Beta yet? It’s pretty cool! You can put together a roster of 12 characters with their alts and take a screenshot to show off your favorites! Check it out if you haven’t already!

Hey, not a bad idea.  This is pretty fun, actually!

Sure is looking villainous up there.  That’s the thing about my playstyle is that I so rarely go for any one particular archetype.  I’d much rather latch on to all the characters that interest me and MAKE them good.

As you can see, I like fast, agile characters like Sheik for duels, heavy hitters like Ike for brawls, and when I’m feeling devious I pull out the trolls (Villager, Puff, etc.)

CA: Ryu you can’t-

(anonymous) shh.

The Face: Characters I’ve either played in the past or am super interested in trying out this time!

Though honestly I kindof ran out of characters I’m REALLY interested in after Palutena.

Show us yours, guys!

All For One and One For All!

Greetings, CA. I am an avid Pokemon fan and also a Steam user with Garry’s Mod. Trust me, this is relevant, but I’m currently working on converting models from Pokemon X and Y into ragdolls, and while doing so, I thought of an interesting idea for a Pokemon fighter. This Pokemon is in Smash 4, but as a Pokeball item. But what if he was actually playable, and a new Water type to add to the roster?

The Time of Loosedness is Upon Us

Weeeee might’ve missed this one in the inbox and ended up posting it a bit late.  Sorry, SSMS!  But hey , why not give it a read anyway?  It’s a good’n.

So the Japanese release date is fast approaching, in fact according to that little countdown in the corner it’s in about 1 day and 20 hours.

I don’t know if I’m going to continue doing these things after we know the full roster, or at the very least I don’t know if I’m going to keep submitting them.

So if such a thing happens, I want to at least leave you guys off with something big, something wanted by nearly everyone, the series is not new to the Smash series but it’s been a while since we’ve had a true newcomer from them.

I think you all know who I’m talking about.

Mostly because the fake-out joke was ruined by the title of this article.

And to top it all off, this is actually a moveset I’ve never posted anywhere else as well.

Meet me under the cut and we’ll discuss further.
