Observe the Awkwardness of Custom Move Mewtwo

Favorite
- -

Mewtwo has no official special moves in Super Smash Bros for Wii U/3DS, but you can hackily achieve them through the use of Miis.  In order to do it, you have to download a Mii not created on your system, then select it for play, deselect it, and select Mewtwo.  Mewtwo inherits that Mii's custom moves, but since this isn't supposed to happen things get pretty glitchy.

Via Kotaku: 

The “Fire Kirby” exploit was first found by Swedish Smash player Enis Al-Maatooq, the guy who previously discovered a nifty and highly technical way to reduce character lag in the latestSmash Bros. He told me that he poked around with Fire Kirby to see if the exploit had any similarly game-changing consequences, but didn’t find any...yet.


Here's a how-to on the exploit:

Duck Hunt Duo and Game and Watch Amiibos Might be Forthcoming

YouTuber Mema Haxx posted the above video of a Duck Hunt Duo amiibo.  The video doesn't show Duck Hunt dog in action, but he also posted a similar video of a Game and Watch amiibo that includes creation, editing, and levelling the character (check it out below).  Presumably, Mema Haxx is using a modified NFC chip to get the game to detect data for unannounced characters that are already on the disk. Nintendo hasn't announced amiibo figures for either character, but it's entirely possible that we'll see them in the future, especially given the success of amiibo so far. Keep your fingers crossed if you're hoping for more Smash amiibos.



Probably Don't Panic About Your Wii U Breaking

A problem has arisen with Smash for the Wii U that's causing some users to encounter error codes, leaving their games and sometimes their consoles unplayable. The most common error codes are 160-0103 when the game is booted up, and 160-1710 on the Data Management page. Many are suspicious that this error is related to an update, but there's no official word yet. These errors can sometimes leave a console bricked, especially after deleting an update, so proceed with caution. Affected users who have contacted Nintendo are being directed to format the system (which can leave it bricked), or mail the console to Nintendo.


The issue is not currently very widespread, but be careful out there, Wii U owners.

UPDATE: Internet sleuthing has revealed that it isn't necessarily Smash's fault; it's been happening with a variety of games.


UPDATE 2: Nintendo is investigating the issue, but maintains that it's only affecting a small percentage of consumers.
