New Releases: Wii Sports Club

wiisportsclub-logoYou might have noticed a lack of new retail releases this week. And that’s because Nintendo decided to release Wii Sports Club today. Nintendo is notorious for releasing games outside of the traditional Tuesday morning slot, but they can get away with that, because they’re Nintendo. Wii Sports Club brings together all five Wii Sports titles while adding high definition graphics and opening up the competition to online multiplayer.

Baseball… Bowling… Boxing… Golf… Tennis… what’s your game?

If you can’t be at Comic-Con this year, you can still get in on some of the action if you have a Wii U. Announced in a recent tweet, Nintendo will be opening up the live Mario Kart 8 tournaments to anyone who wants to join… so long as they own a Wii U, and a copy of the game.

The tournaments will start this Friday, with a number of game modes and events, including Bob-ombs only, Frantic Mode, and straight out of a slapstick movie from the 20′s, Banana’s Only. Participants will be taking on the best players from San Diego all weekend, Friday through Sunday. Anyone wishing to join the fun should enter the game’s Tournament Mode, and enter the codes corresponding to the desired event.

Sheik, Darunia, Ruto join Hyrule Warriors as Link wields the Ball and Chain in latest trailer

Link is a one man wrecking machine in the latest Hyrule Warriors trailer released by Koei Tecmo Japan. Everyone’s favorite elf has bulked up thanks to the Power Gloves and the Ball and Chain. The Power Gloves increase his strength and allow him to throw around massive boulders like they’re basketballs. Meanwhile, the Ball and Chain is an awesome weapon that bashes through hordes of enemies like a wrecking ball. Boom!

Also on the Hyrule Warriors news front, Famitsu (via Computer and Video Games) has revealed that a trio of characters from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time have been added to the hack and slash adventure. Sheik (who is actually Princess Zelda in ninja garb), Darunia (leader of the Gorons), and Ruto (Princess of the Zoras) will all be playable in Hyrule Warriors.

I’m sure we’ll get new trailers showcasing all three characters soon enough as Hyrule Warriors will be released in Japan on August 14. The North American launch of the Wii U title will follow on September 26.
