Treasure chests found in Smash Run not only give you stat boosts, but also give you custom parts and Smash Run powers.

Sakurai is giving us a sneak peak at the equipment screen for the Smash Run mode.
Fancy yourself some free music? How about the soundtrack for the awesome 3DS puzzle game known as Tappingo? Well, if you enjoyed that game’s aural experience, you can head over to this Bandcamp page – which belongs to Alex Wiklund – to download the soundtrack for free. You also have the option to give the musician some money if you please.
Don’t forget, Tappingo 2 will be released on August 28 for $2.99.
There will be a Game Boy stage in the 3DS version of Super Smash Bros. With the 3D effect turned on, it will be like staring into an actual Game Boy, according to Sakurai.
Dr. Wily will make an appearance in Super Smash Bros. 3DS as a trophy. Also, for those not patient enough to collect the trophies, there will be a trophy shop in-game where you will be able to buy trophies!
Renegade Kid has been all over the map as of late with the recently released Moon Chronicles: Episode 1, the Mutant Mudds Deluxe update for owners of the Nintendo 3DS game, and their unfortunate Kickstarter failure for Cult County. Regardless of their successes or failures, Renegade Kid is still kicking and currently moving onto another project. This time, the Nintendo 3DS will get a heavy dose of “Metroidvania” – a term I despise but feel I must use – in its recently revealed 3DS game, Xeodrifter.
Xeodrifter will sport a pixel-based style that uses a limited palette like every NES game. The game is said to feature a bite-sized adventure – which Jools compares to Ikachan – that plays like a Metroidvania, but can be beaten fairly quick. Sticking with the Metroidvania vibe, there will be plenty of items and secrets to find, as well as multiple areas to traverse.
Jools will be providing a developer diary for Xeodrifter over at GoNintendo every Sunday/Monday, so make sure you head over there to get all the details.

Sometimes, the world works in mysterious ways: just yesterday, I discovered For the Frog the Bell Tolls – feel free to take away my Nintendo fanboy card – and today’s update just happens to be about that game. The Prince of the Sablé Kingdom from that lost Japanese Game Boy game will be an assist trophy in the new Super Smash Bros. game.
The Prince of the Sablé Kingdom will transform into either a frog or a snake and then unload multiple attacks on your opponents. You can attack your foes while they are trapped in his dust cloud.
Sakurai is introducing a new activity to Super Smash Bros. 3DS called Target Blast. Target Blast combines attributes of the Home-run Contest and Target Smash. Your objective is to lay the “smackdown” on a bomb as much as you can before its timer runs out, then launch it at the right time to have it explode near the arena’s targets. You will build a score by playing two rounds of this game.
