Skylanders SuperChargers Nintendo Guest Stars Video

During E3 2015, it was revealed that the new Skylanders, Skylanders SuperChargers, would be getting some very special guests for the Wii U version of the game. Bowser and Donkey Kong will be making their first appearance in a Skylanders game and we are very excited about the possibilities. What’s sweet about these two new characters is that they can either be used as Amiibo toys or Skylanders. It will be interesting to see how things turn out but we sure are happy.

The Donkey Kong and Bowser character and vehicle toys are playable exclusively on Nintendo platforms.

*Speaking of Amiibo, we currently have a contest going on and we are giving away a Toad Amiibo toy! Click here for details.

Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time Coming To North American VC

Fans of Zelda rejoice; The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time is headed to the Wii U Virtual console starting tomorrow. The popular title has been released and re-released a number of times and now Wii U owners will have the option to download it starting July 2nd. I remember WAY back in the day when this game originally came out, my friend and I would stay up so late just to search every nook and cranny of Hyrule. It was and will always be one of the best Zelda titles ever.

Here is The NA Yoshi’s Woolly World Amiibo Bundle Boxart

Above is the North American boxart for the Wii U exclusive, Yoshi’s Woolly World. This boxart showcases what the Amiibo bundle will look like and comes with an adorable, green Yarn Yoshi Amiibo. We are really hoping Nintendo can figure out their Amiibo problems and get more in the hands of gamers who crave the collectable toy. I LOVE the art direction for Yoshi’s Woolly World and I really hope I can get my hands on this attractive bundle.

Let me know if you plan on picking this one up.

Pre-Orders should be live at your favorite retailer: Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Target, Gamestop, Amazon…you name it! To make as big of a splash as possible, and to let retailers know that they need to stock up, you should definitely pre-order now!! We’d consider it a huge personal favor; thanks in advance!

What’s in the box?!

The physical version of Shovel Knight contains everything we’ve released so far. First, there is the original Shovel Knight campaign with all the content you know and love! Also included is Shovel Knight’s first content update: Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows. Finally, there’s a full-featured Challenge mode with more than 50 crazy challenge levels to explore!

Of course, like the digital version, every boxed version will also receive FREE future updates as they become available:

Specter Knight’s Campaign – A full campaign starring the shadowy scythe spinner!
King Knight’s Campaign – A crazy campaign with the gilded goob himself!
Battle Mode – Duel with up to 4 players as your favorite heroic or villainous knight! (Wii U/PS4/XB1/PC exclusive)

Body Swap Mode – Did you ever wish Shovel Knight was a lady, or Shield Knight was a dude? Well, now you’ll be able to change them all around, along with the rest of the cast!

Oh, and one more thing: every boxed copy of Shovel Knight will include a lavish instruction booklet similar to the Kickstarter reward. No 2-page inserts here! You deserve a full manual, to hold in your hot little shaking hands and pore over as you wait to get home!

This game is said to be one of the best out there so if you have yet to pick up the title, this seems like a pretty great deal.

ADORABLE YOSHI’S WOOLLY WORLD UK COMMERCIAL

I am in love with the art style for Yoshi’s Woolly World and it will be a day 1 purchase for me.

Check it to and enjoy.
