Those of us living in the “Great White North” will be able to score an exclusive Blue Shell poster when pre-ordering Mario Kart 8 at EB Games. Here’s a look at the full poster:
Ruining friendships since 1996… agreed.
Looks like the Wii Fit stage will have some wacky effects, not unlike the WarioWare stage from Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
Nintendo will be releasing a Pink Peach Wii Remote Plus – which features a yellow d-pad and Princess Peach’s regal crown – to match the Mario and Luigi controllers they released last year. This Wii Remote Plus controller works with all Wii and Wii U games that use Wii Remote controllers and will be released in late April 2014. This controller will retail for the standard $39.99 in the United States, which means it’s probably $44.99 in Canada.
Sakurai says that Greninja’s “sophisticated moves” are fun to use once you get use to how he controls. He also gives us more information on his side special attack, Shadow Sneak.
Greninja’s Shadow Sneak move allows Greninja to teleport across the stage. The longer you gold the button, the farther Greninja will travel. Players can also charge this move and walk around freely for a better chance at ambushing opponents.

NES Remix 2 is scheduled for an April 25 release on the Wii U Nintendo eShop and it’s introducing a new Championship Mode to the game.
Much like the famous 1990 Nintendo World Championship event, NES Remix 2 will challenge gamers to play three games in succession to try to grab the highest score in Championship Mode. The three games you will be playing in this mode in NES Remix 2 are Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, and Dr. Mario. Players will also be able to share their high scores on the Miiverse.
There is a catch, however, as gamers need to own the first NES Remix game, as well as NES Remix 2 to unlock Championship Mode.
