One Piece: Unlimited World Red is a One Piece game that is clearly made by a team that knows its property (Ganbarion has been making One Piece games since at least 2001) and it shows.

Today, Sakurai announced that Lord Ghirahim from the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will be an assist trophy for Super Smash Bros For Wii U and 3DS. This announcement is likely to celebrate the launch of Hyrule Warriors in Japan last week. I was not expecting Lord Ghirahim to be a playable character, in fact, I was betting that he would appear as assist trophy, so this is welcome news (and expected).

"There are many official Super Smash Bros screenshots, as provided by the game’s director Masahiro Sakurai in his daily Miiverse posts, but there are also a few screens which have unofficially leaked. According to a post on the Nsider Forums, these screenshots apparently reveal the entire character roster for the latest Smash Bros instalment on Wii U and 3DS.

While we love a good juicy rumour here, the screens should be taken with a large pinch of salt, and thrown over the shoulder in good ..."

"The controversy surrounding region-locking video games is a complex one, and one that’s never helped consumer choice. I’m against it. I’d doubt any players are for it, and most tolerate it, and certainly no one saying it’s fair. At the same time, Nintendo’s reasons for locking down their own systems–and for quite a long time, mind you–may be no less valid."

GG3 writes: "Publisher Circle Entertainment will release Demon King Box on Nintendo 3DS on August 21, 2014 in North America. As with their previous releases, the price tag is kept to a minimal $3.99."
