Sorry Wii U racing fans, you'll have to stick with Mario Kart for now.

IGN is reporting that Project CARS for the Wii U is cancelled.

Slightly Mad Studios boss Ian Bell put out a press release to explain:

Despite much perseverance on the Wii U version of Project CARS we will no longer be actively pursuing development on it as the quality does not meet our own high standards nor our intended vision for the title on this platform. We eagerly look forward to any announcement of further hardware from Nintendo but right now Project CARS is simply too much for Wii U despite our very best efforts. Apologies to our Nintendo fans out there that have been waiting for further news on this but have no desire to release a product that isn't at the very least comparable with our highest-rated versions on other platforms. We optimistically look forward therefore to what the future may hold.



In an interview with Nintendo Life Bell said it a little clearer.

"The official line is that we're awaiting an announcement from Nintendo on new hardware," he said. "As of now pCARS is simply too much for the Wii U."

Sounds like they, as well as many other third party developers, are waiting to see if the announced NX console will be able to better to handle modern standards.

Have you longed to play hit Nintendo 3DS games like Monster Hunter 4 and the handheld remake of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, but don't like 3D and don't have $120 to spare?

Well, Nintendo heard your cries Aug. 20, as they announced a price drop for the 2DS.

Polygon has the story:

The Nintendo 2DS price drops from $129.99 to $99.99 on Aug. 30, the company announced this morning.

The 2DS will still come packed with the digital version of Mario Kart 7, Nintendo confirmed.

The price drop lands as Nintendo prepares to launch Little Battlers eXperience Aug. 21 for the 2DS and Nintendo 3DS. In the game, players build, customize and battle robots made from more than 4,000 parts.



At the time of its launch in October 2013, many thought the device was more for young children because of the 3D removal and the sturdier, slab-like build. But everyone can take advantage of the hundreds of games that you can now play at a lower price.

Nintendo is finally getting on the phone and tablet game bandwagon. They will be releasing the first Nintendo mobile game in 2016, the free-to-play Miitomo. In the game you will create a character, answer questions about their personality and watch them interact with other characters based on those traits.



According to Kotaku, it's "a social networking game, but for Miis". This will be the first release of five smartphone games that Nintendo has announced.
