Rumor: Ness amiibo leaked, selling on Chinese auction site


PK leaker!

// Jed Whitaker
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]

What gaming locations would you want turned into a Smash Bros. stage?

Oct 03 // Hamza CTZ Aziz
By awesome I mean extremely silly, of course. Since the bottom of the 3DS screen is dedicated to your stats, I think a level based inside of Bowser's body would really only work out best on the Wii U version of the game, stylized like the 3DS so there's "two screens" on your TV.   On the bottom half of your display is the traditional setup, with up to four players battling it out inside Bowser. On the upper half of the screen is Bowser himself, looking exactly as he does in the DS title. Your actions in his stomach will make Bowser do a variety of stuff, like say use too many fire type attacks and maybe it'll cause Bowser to guzzle down a ton of water, thus filling up the fighting arena full of water for a duration of time.  [embed]282035:55841:0[/embed] There's a lot of potential here, but I think something tied to the giant-sized Bowser fights would be the best thing ever. Essentially having the players hit certain points/objects inside Bowser in order to help him fight Midbus, or one of the castle bosses as seen in the above video.  A stage like this is obviously more for the fun aspect of Smash over it being a super serious battle. Those are the kind of levels I like the most, really. The Planet Zebes: Brinstar Depths stage from Super Smash Bros. Melee that featured Kraid spinning the level around is a good example of one such interactive stage.  I think the funniest part about all this is the idea that the Koopalings and Bowser Jr. would be able to fight inside Bowser's stomach. That just sounds demented to me. Oh, and you're probably asking how Bowser himself would be able to fight inside his own stomach. Well the answer to that is "because videogames." Duh. So what about you? What videogame location would you like a stage to be based on in a Super Smash Bros. game?

The Super Smash Bros. Invitational
Last night's Super Smash Bros. Invitational was full of great moments, but one of the absolute highlights was the reveal of Mega Man's Final Smash. It was the first one of the night, and the Blue Bomber is a perfect character to really show it off to a roaring crowd. I never would have believed that Nintendo would make people more excited for Mega Man than Capcom as a kid.
