According to a questionable report from 4chan it appears that Rayman may be set for DLC in Super Smash Bros for Wii U and 3DS. A video was leaked showing Rayman in the roster. The video seems to be pretty convincing and for those that remember a Nintendo employee from Canada seemed to imply that Rayman would be playable last August. Check out the video below.
Update: The video has been confirmed as a fake.
North Americans can now perform a simple 3DS update which adds not only a revamped Mii Plaza look but the much awaited DLC content to Mii Plaza. 3DS owners have the option of either purchasing the content separately at $4.99 per game or in a bundle pack for $14.99 which saves you $5.00. Check out Nintendo’s Mii Plaza breakdown below.
StreetPass™ Mii Plaza™ lets you meet and play with Mii™ characters created by other gamers. Simply carry your Nintendo 3DS™ system with you in Sleep Mode, and it’ll collect Mii information (and send yours) when you pass other players. When you visit your StreetPass Mii Plaza, you’ll see the new Miis you’ve collected. You never know who you might meet!
You can then use your new Mii friends in fun games, including:
- Find Mii – Recruit a Mii army to defeat monsters, save your own Mii, and earn stylish hats for him or her to wear.
- Puzzle Swap – Trade puzzle pieces with others via StreetPass to complete 3D scenes of Nintendo favorites.
The latest StreetPass Mii Plaza update includes new free Puzzle Swap panels (one of which you will get automatically—the other three you earn via StreetPass!), an updated layout, and new touchscreen controls. You’ll also get access to four new, individually-priced StreetPass games which let you earn tickets you can exchange for new hats and costumes for your Mii:
- Mii Force – Blast your way through enemies in this scrolling space shooter. You’ll use StreetPass Mii characters for special power-ups so you can defeat your enemies—and save the galaxy
- Flower Town – Grow and maintain your own flowers and collect flowers from StreetPass Mii characters to form new breeds and expand your gorgeous garden.
- Warrior’s Way – Collect troops over StreetPass and fight with—or against—other warlords to conquer new countries. Battles take “rock, paper, scissors” to a whole new level.
- Monster Manor – Design and explore a multi-level mansion using pieces that you collect from StreetPass Mii characters. Battle ghosts and find stairways to unlock new levels.
To get the update, simply ensure your Nintendo 3DS system has been updated to the latest version (Ver. 6.1.0-12 U), then follow the prompts shown when you open StreetPass Mii Plaza. Once your update is complete, you’ll be able to purchase any of the new games by selecting “Games” in the Mii Plaza. Select the bunny character next to the game title you’re interested in to learn more or purchase the game (or all four).
2013 is the year of Luigi and following in the celebration is a new DLC version of the popular New Super Mario Bros U titled New Super Luigi. This new version of the game will feature Luigi, blue toad, yellow toad and in place of Mario we have the pesky Nabbit as playable characters. Nabbit has different abilities then Luigi and Toad and will only be available in multiplayer mode. Nabbit can be chosen for those who may find the game a tad difficult as he is unable to be hurt by enemies. The game will feature 82 updated levels offering a completely different experience from the original version. New Super Luigi was previously announced as a DLC update to the original title. For players who do not own New Super Mario Bros U but are interested in New Super Luigi will be able to pick up a retail copy of the game on August 25 for $29.99. Owners of the original copy of the game can pick the game up digitally on June 20 for $19.99.
It seems the Wii U can’t seem to catch a break when it comes to support from 3rd party developers. In a recent statement from the official Twitter page for Injustice: Gods Among Us it has been revealed that the first DLC pack is expected to arrive this summer on Wii U. Xbox 360 and PS3 have already received their first playable DLC character Lobo.there is no explanation as to the delay of DLC on the Wii U version. WB Interactive has yet to confirm the reason for the Wii U DLC delay.
On day one of the Wii U’s launch there was an update required to gain access to applications such as Miiverse and Netflix. What wasn’t included in the update were things like Hulu, TVii and the ability for developers to make DLC available for their titles. Seems like a strange omission, huh… Well sleep easy folks, because Nintendo has announced there will be an update in December that will allow DLC to be rolled out for Wii U titles. You’ll be able to get new map packs for Black Ops in no time.
We’re finally getting the specifics on Nintendo’s plans for the Wii U’s eShop, which will be available day one through an update. Through the Wii U’s eShop you’ll have access to game demos, HD pictures and video (via TV or Gamepad), see what people are saying about games available, purchase DLC, digital titles and full retail games, there will be some sort of ranking system and you can do all this while software is running in the background.
Tecmo Koei has three titles to be available for the Wii U when it launches in Japan later this year. Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper, Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII and Ninja Gaiden III will all be available as hard copies and digitally through Nintendo’s eShop on day one. It looks like Tecmo Koei will make these titles available cheaper through the eShop though. Here is the pricing breakdown:

– Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII is 9,240 yen retail and 8,000 yen eShop
