October 2014 brings us new featured game rewards over at Club Nintendo. Despite being October, Nintendo isn’t offering many horror-themed titles, though there are a few here that may be worthy of your coins.

My recommendations for this month are Kirby’s Dream Course and Donkey Kong.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U has finally been given an official release date. Come November 21, fans will be able to get their hands on, perhaps, the biggest Wii U game of the year. We already know the game will feature online modes, HD graphics at 60 fps, and levels the 3DS version doesn’t have, though there is a lot of information we don’t have yet.

Of course, a Wii U GameCube Controller adapter, and Super Smash Bros. GameCube controller will be released alongside Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. The adapter will cost $19.99 (likely $24.99 in Canada) and the controller will cost $29.99 (likely $34.99 in Canada).

Lastly, fans looking to scratch their collecting itch will be able to pick up some Amiibo figures on November 21, as well. The first line of figures will consist of Peach, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Link, Fox, Samus, Wii Fit Trainer, Villager, Pikachu, Kirby and Marth. Want even more Amiibos? Well, a second wave of figures will launch in December and includes Zelda, Diddy Kong, Luigi, Little Mac, Pit and Captain Falcon.
