Super Smash Bros on the 3DS is a huge success in Japan. Nintendo of Japan has announced that the game was able to move 1 million units in just 2 days. These figures do include both digital and physical sales. Of course, it should come as no shock that this game is selling well in Japan. Sales are going to just continue to increase. This goes double when it launches in North America.

Walmart has just recently announced a special Super Smash Bros bundle for the Wii U. This is being called the Super Smash Bros Wii U Amiibo Starter Pack. The new bundle includes Super Smash Bros for Wii U and Mario, Pikachu and Link Amiibo figures.The bundle has been listed as $99, which isn't really much of a deal, when you consider that this is about how much it would cost if you purchased the game and three Amiibo figures separately. You have the option to add an additional Amiibo, but at the standard price of $13.

UPDATE: Nintendo of Europe was able to confirm that "Monster Hunter 4" will not be coming to the Wii U. The banner in the picture above was nothing more than a misprint. Oh well, maybe another time ...
Some pictures from a gaming event in Germany have some people asking if "Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate" is coming to the Wii U. This rumor got started thanks to the picture you can see above. It clearly shows the "Monster Hunter 4" logo on it, but it also has the Wii U logo in the top right corner.
This rumor would not shock me if it was true. Capcom has release a Monster Hunter for both the Wii and the Wii U. As such, bringing these games to home consoles is something that Capcom is at least interested in. Also, "Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate" sold fairly well on the Wii U considering the install base at the time and the fact that it was a remake to a game that also came out on the Wii.

Many of the hacks the player does during the game can also be handled with the GamePad touchscreen.
Nintendo of America has just confirmed a NES inspired 3DS XL for North America. This system will be exclusive to GameStop and will launch on October 10 of this year. The system is simply beautiful ... its just a shame that Nintendo has already confirmed that NA will get the more powerful "New 3DS XL" next year. .
If your looking for a collector's 3DS XL, this NES themed one may fit the bill.
