One game that we haven’t talked about much here on Wii U Daily, but are super excited about is the upcoming Puzzle & Dragons Z + Puzzle & Dragons Super Mario Bros. for the 3DS. Well, as if Nintendo had read our minds, they decided to release some info about this game in the latest Nintendo Direct.

The game will effectively serve as two games in one, with Puzzle & Dragons Z and Puzzle & Dragons Super Mario Bros. each serving as separate titles. While they will share certain gameplay elements, each will have it’s own story and unique gameplay twists. Each game plays as a cross between a puzzle game and an RPG, where you have to from a part from the ranks of your enemies and match colored squares to deal massive damage to enemies in battle. You’ll also be able to transform your party members into more powerful forms by combining them with different items.

There was also a new trailer released separately from the Nintendo Direct which shows off some of the gameplay from Puzzle & Dragons Super Mario Bros.:

To me these two games look pretty interesting. But how about you guys, what do you all think? Does this look like a game you might pick up?

Tons of new info released for Mario Kart 8 http://wiiudaily.com/2015/04/tons-of-new-info-released-for-mario-kart-8/ http://wiiudaily.com/2015/04/tons-of-new-info-released-for-mario-kart-8/#comments Wed, 01 Apr 2015 23:38:08 +0000 http://wiiudaily.com/?p=34130 mariokart8wallpaper

Today’s Nintendo Direct was full of surprises, among the most interesting were several announcements regarding Mario Kart 8.

First and foremost, we got some new information regarding the upcoming batch of DLC for the game, including some footage of the Animal Crossing course, which will change seasons each time it is played. What’s most interesting about this announcement is that the release date for this DLC has been pushed forward, to April 23. Here’s the trailer so you can see the new characters in action:

That wasn’t all that was revealed though. Several new racing suits were shown off for the Mii characters in the game. You will be able to get these for your Mii drivers, using certain upcoming amiibo. The costumes featured include: Toad, Bowser, Rosalina, Wario, Olimar, Villager, and possibly most interestingly Sonic, Mega Man, and Pac-Man. Once again, Nintendo was kind enough to post a trailer so you can see what these suits look like in action:

Finally, as far as racers go, Mario Kart has been many things, but it has never been the fastest. Well that is all about to change as for the first time in series history, Nintendo is releasing a 200cc class. This class is all about speed and will test the player’s ability to break effectively, otherwise they won’t be able to make the turns. This is set to release as a free update on the same day as the upcoming DLC, April 23. We have yet another trailer here:

So, of all these new updates, what are you all most excited about? As for me, the new 200cc looks to be the most interesting. Although I’m also pretty excited to hear that DLC will be coming out a little earlier than planned. Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

First trailer of the Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem crossover now available http://wiiudaily.com/2015/04/first-trailer-of-the-shin-megami-tensei-and-fire-emblem-crossover-now-available/ http://wiiudaily.com/2015/04/first-trailer-of-the-shin-megami-tensei-and-fire-emblem-crossover-now-available/#comments Wed, 01 Apr 2015 23:35:52 +0000 http://wiiudaily.com/?p=34138

Fans of both series have been waiting for nearly two years to see more information about the game. It was announced in January of 2013 and we haven’t heard a peep out of Nintendo up until now, leading many to believe that this crossover title may have been cancelled. Today Nintendo revealed that the title is not cancelled and that ATLUS is hard at work on creating the cross-over RPG that will utilize both series in an all new story.

You can check out the new trailer above and let us know what you think in the comments below!

Amiibo Tap is Nintendo’s newest demo system for amiibo http://wiiudaily.com/2015/04/amiibo-tap-is-nintendos-newest-demo-system-for-amiibo/ http://wiiudaily.com/2015/04/amiibo-tap-is-nintendos-newest-demo-system-for-amiibo/#comments Wed, 01 Apr 2015 23:31:48 +0000 http://wiiudaily.com/?p=34135 amiibo-tap

During today’s Nintendo Direct, Satoru Iwata revealed Amiibo Tap: Nintendo’s Greatest Bits as another perk of owning amiibo. When this app releases on the Wii U eShop, you’ll be able to download it for free and any amiibo you own against your Wii U GamePad to get a scene from a classic Nintendo game. The game you get may be related to the amiibo you tap and it may not, as Mr. Iwata stated, this is like a box of chocolates. You don’t know what you’ll get until you tap.

This new app will be coming sometime this Spring and will work with all currently released amiibo, so if you’ve been stockpiling your collection until now you’ll have quite a bit of fun when this is released.

Mewtwo and Lucas coming to Super Smash Bros. as DLC http://wiiudaily.com/2015/04/mewtwo-and-lucas-coming-to-super-smash-bros-as-dlc/ http://wiiudaily.com/2015/04/mewtwo-and-lucas-coming-to-super-smash-bros-as-dlc/#comments Wed, 01 Apr 2015 23:19:16 +0000 http://wiiudaily.com/?p=34132 lucas-ssb

The lead up to today’s Nintendo Direct featured a trailer showcasing Mewtwo’s moves in the Super Smash Bros. series. We’ve known about Mewtwo for a while now, as he was originally planned as a DLC character because his development was not finished by the time the team was ready to ship the game. For fans who purchased both the Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS version of the game, you’ll be able to get Mewtwo as a free download.

For those who didn’t both purchase both games, you’ll need to fork over $3.99 for one version, or $4.99 to have him available on both versions. He’ll be available for download on April 28th, but as a special reward to those who purchased both games, you’ll get your download code on April 15th.

Lucas is another DLC character that was announced for the game, hailing from the Japanese game Mother 3 that was never released outside of Japan. Lucas was previously available in Brawl, but will be joining the Smash Wii U & 3DS cast this June.

In addition to the two new fighters, Nintendo is opening a fighter ballot asking the community which fighters they’d like to see in upcoming DLC packs for Super Smash Bros. Of course not every request will be honored, but it’s nice to see Nintendo opening a dialogue with their fans to see which characters that were left out of the initial release will make it into Super Smash Bros.

New Fatal Frame game getting Western release this fall http://wiiudaily.com/2015/04/new-fatal-frame-game-getting-western-release-this-fall/ http://wiiudaily.com/2015/04/new-fatal-frame-game-getting-western-release-this-fall/#comments Wed, 01 Apr 2015 23:12:39 +0000 http://wiiudaily.com/?p=34129 fatal-frame-4

Hardcore Fatal Frame fans will be pleased, as during today’s Nintendo Direct, Nintendo announced that it is bringing the new Fatal Frame game that released last year in Japan to the West later this year. No concrete release date was given, but Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden is the first Fatal Frame game to be released in the West in a while and is likely a result of vocal Western fans asking Nintendo and Koei Tecmo to bring the game to the West.

We’re about 10 minutes out from the Nintendo Direct for today being available, so sit back, relax, and get ready to see what’s coming over the course of the next year from Nintendo. The presentation will be about 48 minutes long, so it seems like it will be jam-packed with new information about both the Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS.

Remember after the Nintendo Direct a Treehouse stream will go live where you can watch the Treehouse team discuss upcoming games. What do you want to see most? Share your excitement below while we wait for the show to start!

Nintendo releases the final rewards for Gold/Platinum Club Nintendo members http://wiiudaily.com/2015/04/nintendo-releases-the-final-rewards-for-goldplatinum-club-nintendo-members/ http://wiiudaily.com/2015/04/nintendo-releases-the-final-rewards-for-goldplatinum-club-nintendo-members/#comments Wed, 01 Apr 2015 16:12:03 +0000 http://wiiudaily.com/?p=34118 Club-Nintendo

Yesterday marked the final day you could redeem points on Club Nintendo toward your Platinum or Gold status, so if you didn’t achieve either of those before yesterday, you’re out of luck. For those of you who did, Nintendo has just released a list of all the games that are available for Platinum and Gold members to choose from. Platinum members will be able to snag a copy of DKC: Tropical Freeze, which is the only full-length Wii U game available on the list. The rest are virtual console or Wii U eShop games.

cnp-1 cnp-2 cnp-3

There’s a great list of games to choose from here, though it’s somewhat disappointing that the Wii U didn’t receive more representation outside of virtual console and eShop releases. Which game will you be getting?

Thanks to everyone who sent this in!

Let’s play bingo with today’s Nintendo Direct! http://wiiudaily.com/2015/04/lets-play-bingo-with-todays-nintendo-direct/ http://wiiudaily.com/2015/04/lets-play-bingo-with-todays-nintendo-direct/#comments Wed, 01 Apr 2015 15:34:41 +0000 http://wiiudaily.com/?p=34115 Nintendo-Direct-Logo-621x350

One of the fun things to do with upcoming Nintendo Direct presentations is to predict whether or not certain games you think will be talked about will be featured. 4Chan’s /v/ board has come up with a quick bingo card that highlights all of the possible topics of discussion for today’s Nintendo Direct, including some possibilities that have long been rumored.

While some of the options are considered long-shots, some of them aren’t quite as far-fetched as you would imagine. There’s a spot for talking about a Wii U version of Animal Crossing, Iwata’s famous “please understand” phrase, and even a spot highlighting April 1st, should Nintendo decide to allude to pranksters favorite holiday. The Nintendo Direct today airs at 5pm CST, so while it’s going on, have this page open and check out the card below to see if we can get a bingo!

Are there any topics listed below that you think won’t be talked about?
