Smash Bros. 3DS lets you buy the trophies that you can't earn

When Smash Bros. for 3DS launches in October, players that find themselves concerned with earning the collectible in-game trophies won't necessarily need to put their noses to the grindstone and work for the difficult-to-earn ones. They can just buy them instead.

In a post on Miiverse, Masahiro Sakurai revealed the trophy shop -- a storefront where trophies can be bought. It seems as if Play Coins and G are the only currencies that can be used. Play Coins are acquired through the 3DS' pedometer, and G are earned through in-game events and tasks.

Sakurai also hinted at the large number of trophies that will be available in the handheld Smash Bros. "Brawl had tons of trophies, but rumor has it that the 3DS version alone may have more than Brawl," he said. Sakurai also included a photo of the Dr. Wily trophy in the game's gallery, so fans can see what that layout looks like.

Ever since Melee, trophies have been a popular part of the Smash series, offering some tough goals for dedicated players. It's unknown if all trophies will be available for purchase, or if some will be reserved for completing tasks. Regardless, upping the amount of hardware in the trophy case just got less arduous -- at least in the 3DS version of Super Smash Bros.

Marth amiibo resurrects in April

Nintendo has announced that our lord and savior and one true amiibo, Marth, will be back in stores in late April. A little late for him and his friend Ike to join the fight in Code Name: S.T.E.A.M., which will have already been released in March. Finally, our prayers to Reggie have worked. Praise to Iwata. May our enemies' amiibo burn in hell.  Nintendo [Twitter]more

Rumor: Ness amiibo leaked, selling on Chinese auction site

A Ness amiibo has been spotted for sale on a Chinese auction site and appears to be in European packaging. Currently it sits at about $55, though I don't imagine that price will stay there for long. Comparing the images in the gallery to the official Ness amiibo pictures, I'd say it looks to be the real deal. What do you think, real or fake? Ness amiibo leaked in China [My amiibo News]more
