New Trailer for the Wii U Indie Game "Fast Racing NEO"

Check out the new PAX trailer for "Fast Racing NEO." The game looks simply beautiful and it's kind of what I expect F-Zero would have looked like had it ever made it to the Wii U. This indie title launches later this year.

Pre-order the Shovel Knight amiibo from UK Retailer GAME Starting Tomorrrow

Earlier in the week, a Spanish retailer showed a listing for a Shovel Knight amiibo figure. This sparked rumors that Shovel Knight would  be the next character to join Super Smash Bros for the Wii U and 3DS. Well, it now appears that these rumors are correct .. or at least there is a Shovel Knight amiibo on the way. Today, the popular UK retailer GAME confirmed that there is indeed a Shovel Knight figure on the way.

Right now, the figure is said to work with Nintendo titles from Yacht Club Games and other titles that can't be shared at this time (they are likely talking about Smash Bros. Mario Kart 8 or maybe even a spot in Super Mario Maker). You can pre-order the amiibo starting tomorrow and it launches November 27th.

The Tweet was taken down almost as quickly as it went up. Looks like they jump the gun a bit. However, you can still see the original Tweet above.

Character Trailer Introducing Liber and Garnet From the 3DS Game "The Legend of Legacy"

Check out the new trailer for Atlus' game "The Legend of Legacy." This trailer introduces Liber the treasure hunter and Garnet the Templar knight. Here is a short description of each character:

A treasure hunter with a penchant for danger, and also profiting off said danger, Liber is coming to Avalon not for a noble cause, but rather to line his pockets. Being the resourceful adventurer, Liber is one of the strongest supports in the game and excels with bare fists, short swords, and spears. Plus, Liber has a strong affinity for the wind element. 
A trained templar knight, Garnet is loyal to her holy order, and is exploring Avalon to stamp out the heretics spreading blasphemous rumors about gods returning to the mortal realm. Garnet has balanced offense and defense, making her versatile in party formations. She prefers long swords and shields, and she doesn’t have any elemental affinities at all.
