CAUTION FOR SMASH Players! Avoid playing Piranha Plant in All-Stars Mode

Piranha Plant has just been released for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate but there’s a glitch with it. Reported on GameFAQs and Twitter users, if you use Piranha Plant in All-Star Mode, your Save File will corrupt and you’ll have to reinstall and unlock everything again. This has been reported only for digital copies but I advise being cautious until Nintendo has released an official patch or update. I will revise the article once it has been. In the meantime, why not watch the new character be played by pro-players?

If you pre-ordered the game, the last day to download Piranha Plant for free is tomorrow, January 31st. 


Metroid Prime 4 Delayed; Development Restarted

Many fans have been waiting for a new Metroid game for the main console. Unfortunately,  Nintendo will “re-examine the development structure itself and change it.” Announced by Shinya Takahashi, Nintendo’s Senior Managing Executive Office, the game was not meeting Nintendo‘s standard.

A good part of the video stated Kento Tanabe, the Metroid Prime Producer, will be working with Retro Studios who made the original Metroid Prime trilogy. Check out the announcement below.

Bowsette denied by Nintendo

Confirmed by Nintendo, Bowsette is impossible to create. According to Nintendo’s New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe website, only Toadette can use the website. Not sure why Luigi is mentioned in the item description when the true desire for the item was Bowser.

At least we will always have fanart, animations, Tumblr, and more.
