Urban Outfitters sells out of NES Classic Edition

Remember when we posted about Urban Outfitters having the NES Classic Edition in stock today? Well they did have it, and they even shared the purchase link via a special social media account...and even with all that, the item sold out right away. Another opportunity came and went. We'll be sure to fill you in on the next chance to purchase an NES Classic Edition, whenever that may be!

New Super Luigi U Miiverse community suffers from ongoing hacks

For whatever reason, the New Super Luigi U Miiverse community has been the focus of some hacks lately.

RUMOR - Koei Tecmo pitched Star Fox Warriors to Nintendo, but nothing came of it

The following comes from Laura Kate Dale...

- some space combat would have been included as well
- no motion controls
- missions would have alternated between ground combat and a simplified space combat system
- it was going to be "visually over the top”
- Nintendo turned down the idea “due to questions regarding the future of the brand”
- no specific platform was mentioned
- Koei Tecmo still wants to work on another Warriors game with Nintendo, and Nintendo is interested as well
