ROB, Duck Hunt, Mr Game and Watch, Falco, and the Mii Fighters have all been confirmed as upcoming Smash Bros Amiibo.  Additionally, Nintendo of Europe's official site slipped up and gave us a glimpse of new Mario Maker and Animal Crossing Amiibo that have yet to be announced.  

Back to official news, Nintendo announced Street Fighter's Ryu joining Smash Bros as a fighter, as well as Roy from Fire Emblem.  Ryu for either version of the game will run you $5.99, or get him for both versions for $6.99.  Included with that purchase is a new stage from Street Fighter, Suzaku Castle.  Roy is available for $3.99 for either version, or $4.99 for both Wii U and 3DS packaged together.  Both character DLCs plus the previously announced Lucas are available now (for $3.99/4.99).  Eventually, all Smash fighters will have corresponding Amiibos.

More paid DLC announced today includes new costume for the Mii fighters, and the Dreamland stage from N64.  If you want all of the DLC Nintendo announced today, it'll cost a total of $21.96 for either or $29.16 for a Wii U/3DS bundle.

There's also a new free Miiverse stage available today, and "Tourney mode," which will come out for free in August.

The New 3DS has only been out since October in Japan (and November in Australia), but it's already shipped 1.84 million units, bringing the total for the 3DS family of handheld consoles up to 50.41 million units shipped.


1.91 million Wii Us were shipped between October and December of last year, bringing its total up to only 9.2 million units shipped (for context, Microsoft reported 6.6 million units shipped during the last quarter of 2014).

The weak value of the yen is giving a boost to Nintendo's income from overseas, so Nintendo is expecting a profit of 30 billion yen this year (up from a previously forecast 20 billion).

If you're not familiar with 3DS play coins, they're earned while a 3DS is in sleep mode and its owner walks around (or shakes the device wildly like a dirty cheater). For every 100 steps you take, you earn one Play Coin up to 10 coins a day and 300 coins total. Think of all the trophies you could buy!

The premise of The Thieves and the 1,000 Pokémon is to befriend and collect Pokémon through StreetPass. You can use Pokémon to take on the band of thieves and their Pokémon by clashing in stampede-style battles to retrieve stolen treasure.

If you don't have enough Pokémon, you'll end up losing against the thieves, so you'll actually need to have quite a lot of Pokémon to get far in the game. The villains are characters who'll be appearing in the upcoming film, Pokémon the Movie: Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction.

The trailer also mentions that there's a special something in store for those who play the game and take it to the movie theaters when the new Pokémon movie premieres. There will also be something special for those with Pokémon X and Y.
