About a week ago we reported that a modder was working on adding the Wario's Gold Mine course into Mario Kart 7, but that's not all. YouTuber TheZoroark007 has just released another video, this time showing the implementation of Peach Gardens (the Mario Kart Wii version) into Mario Kart 7. As with the other course, Peach Gardens is not yet finished, but a lot of work has been put into it and it's currently in a playable form. You can check out the footage by clicking below!

About a week ago we reported that Project X Zone 2 is getting preorder exclusive DLC in North America. Preordering at any retailer will give players a 3DS theme, a challenge stage (The Woman From 10 Years Ago), a Sun Sword, a Diamond Metal Accessory, and an Amethyst Medal Accessory. Publisher Bandai Namco confirmed suspicions today by announcing that the preorder DLC will be coming to Europe as well. Project X Zone 2 will be launching exclusive only on Nintendo 3DS in Europe on February 19th.

Nintendo is releasing another "Special Broadcast" for Super Smash Bros. next month, and it turns out this will be the last of its kind. Assuming Sakurai wants to go out with a bang, it's a safe bet to say this is the time when they'll be unveiling the final rounds of DLC for Smash—if Cloud wasn't already the main attraction, that is.

This was one of our talking points on last week's episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia. Check out the discussion video after the jump for our full thoughts on the final Special Broadcast, or keep reading for a brief, brief summary.

Following leaks and a lengthy wait, Pokémon fans can finally acquire the mythical Pokémon Hoopa.

Right now through December 23rd, you can head to any McDonald's restaurant that serves as a Nintendo Zone and download Hoopa to Pokémon X, Y, Omega Ruby, or Alpha Sapphire. This long-awaited Pokémon is level 50 and comes equipped with Hyperspace Hole (a move that only Hoopa can learn), Psychic, Astonish, and Nasty Plot.

During the recent Nintendo Direct presentation, Nintendo announced a free-to-start crossover title coming exclusively to Nintendo 3DS. Pokémon Picross blends the puzzle-centric gameplay of the Picross series with the fun and lovable creatures of the Pokémon franchise.

Nintendo is holding another StreetPass Weekend in North America, which starts today and ends on November 29th.

Nintendo has given Miiverse for the 3DS a small update. After the update, only the ten most recent posts are shown on your Play Journal, and 15 posts in other places. This is down from the 20 posts that used to be displayed at one time. Furthermore, a few bugs have been fixed, meaning users will see less error messages when they are on the network.

Anime censorship is nothing new in the west. Famous anime such as Dragon Ball Z, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Pokémon, and One Piece have all had controversial scenes removed in order to avoid any backlash. Yo-Kai Watch is the latest anime to be changed for its English release, and it features some interesting edits during a scene where the kids are watching late-night television. According to a video that was posted on Twitter, they have replaced the girl's bikinis with one-piece bathing suits and changed the burly men in speedos with a cooking show.

During the recent Nintendo Direct presentation, Nintendo announced Pokémon Picross.

Today we got a little more information, as Nintendo announced that the game will be launching in North America on December 3rd.

Hyrule Warriors was a hit on Wii U, and it's coming to 3DS next year as Hyrule Warriors Legends. The handheld version of the game includes new levels, weapons, and playable characters.

Nintendo's eShop has been available in most European countries for quite some time now, but a few nations still don't have access to the online store. Thankfully, that will be changing soon. According to an email reportedly sent out to publishers, eShop is coming to all remaining EU countries (including Cyprus, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Slovakia, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, and Romania) by December 10th. The shop will be displayed in English, and consumers will need to pay in Euros.

The weekly hardware and software sales numbers from Japan are in, courtesy of Media Create, and the latest Star Wars game is a hit all around the world. EA's Star Wars Battlefront easily debuted at number one in Japan, selling nearly 124,000 copies on PlayStation 4.

Sony's console saw a slight sales boost of about 2,000 units from this (and several other games), but it wasn't the surge you might expect from a number one game. Meanwhile, Nintendo had a fairly unremarkable week in game sales, but 3DS hardware sales jumped by over 7,000 over last week. You can check out the full breakdown by clicking below.

Atlus recently announced Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final, a pseudo-sequel to the critically praised 3DS RPG.

The stream will include commentary from Producer Kazuyuki Yamai, and we'll get to see lots of new content. This includes a look at the new battle system, a boss fight, and the Kanda area. This all takes place on NicoNico from 6:55 AM to 8:15 AM EST.
