It looks like there could have been a few more levels to Ubisoft's Rayman Legends. A concept video for the the fifth title in the popular Rayman franchise has been released, showing off scrapped features that were dropped from the final version.

One of those features the game was originally meant to have, are figurines that could be added to levels in-game using near-field communication (like Nintendo's amiibo figurines). In the video, we see a prototype Wii U controller that would have been able to use the technology, but since this wasn't finished in time, the figurines are instead placed on the GamePad's screen. The entire figurine idea was eventually removed totally from the game by Ubisoft.

See this and other scrapped features in the video after the jump!

Super Smash Bros Wii U. experienced a very successful launch, and was applauded by critics. It appears that the game not only appeals to humans though, but also to cats! In a cute little video by YouTube user xxxtro we witness the game captivating a creature who's race is known for nonchalance and apathy. My cat usually views video games with disdain, as they come between her and getting petted.

One of the features of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is that you can check out all kinds of worldwide statistics for the game. Kotaku posted a handful of these earlier today, and one in particular was unbelievable...and by that I mean I literally don't believe it. According to their post, Smash has been played for around 2.3 billion hours. I decided to check this out for myself, and according to Nintendo's official numbers, the game has been played for more than 3 billion total hours. 

This would be quite an accomplishment, seeing as Smash has sold about half a million copies in the US and has not yet launched in Europe, Australia, or Japan. Kotaku speculated that this number may include Smash 3DS play time, but even then you're looking at (giving a very generous estimate) a maximum of 5 million copies sold so far. That comes out to an average of 600 hours per person. Something tells me there might be a glitch in Nintendo's stat tracker! If you'd like to see some other stats, click below, but be advised that their accuracy appears to be questionable. 

If you can manage to pry yourself away from Super Smash Bros. for Wii U at all for the rest of this year, Nintendo's got Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker on the way. New footage of this charming little puzzle game has surfaced, showing off Toadette in a bonus stage full of coins and extra lives. The only problem? She's being chased by Mummy Toad the whole time!

Now that Wii U RPG Xenoblade Chronicles X is almost complete, executive director Tetsuya Takahashi has started giving regular Twitter updates on the game to keep us hooked until its launch next year. In the latest update, he confirmed that Yuchiro Takeda, the main script writer for the original Xenoblade Chronicles, is returning. The story style will change a bit though, as the first game was (according to Takahashi) a "basic fantasy story," but with Xenoblade Chronicles X, "we’re having him write a deep sci-fi story this time around.” Are you happy with the change in story direction? Let us know in the comments!

Two days ago we found a batch of fantastic custom Amiibo, and it looks like more people are catching on to the idea of customizing their figurines. A new batch discovered today includes Metal Mario (pictured to the left), a sleek-looking Light Suit Samus, a Mega Man Kirby, and even the Villager decked out as popular professional wrestler John Cena...for some reason. Have you modified your Amiibo at all? Check out all the cool custom designs by clicking below!

Batman: Arkham City was released in 2011, but new Easter eggs are still being found. The most recent discovery was a cryptic piece of dialog from the infamous Calendar Man, which can only be accessed by setting your date to December 13th, 2004. Why such a seemingly random date? The specific December day was the date that Rocksteady, the developer of the Arkham series was founded. While Easter eggs are no new thing, the fact that it took several years to find is surprising. Of course, it probably would have stayed hidden had not a seemingly random YouTube channel posted a short, cut-off clip of the dialog. The video is suspected to have originated from the developer. Make the jump to watch a video about its discovery.

Nintendo just announced that Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is the fastest-selling Wii U game in the US to date, but that doesn't mean they can just sit back and rake in the money for the rest of the year. When asked for comment, Nintendo of America executive vice president of sales and marketing Scott Moffit said his company has a lot of work to do with events like Black Friday and Cyber Monday coming up. Additionally, he teased that Nintendo has "a few more surprises in store for our fans." Could we get another Nintendo Direct before the end of the year? A big eShop sale, perhaps? What would you like to see?

The early numbers are in, and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is the fastest-selling Wii U game in the United States to date. According to Nintendo of America, the popular fighter has eclipsed Mario Kart 8 for opening weekend sales. In its first three days on the market, Smash has sold 490,000 units in the United States alone. It looks like Wii U will soon have another million-seller on its hands!

It's a charming spin-off to the Mario franchise, with its adorable mushroom-topped protagonists and intricate puzzles. Now, we've got a new commercial for Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, which is being released exclusively for the Wii U in December.

The game was originally created as a minigame for 2013's Super Mario 3D World before being developed into a fully fledged puzzle/platformer title. Unlike other Nintendo heroes, Toad has little acrobatic or offensive capability, forcing the player to approach the various puzzles with a little less bravado and a little more caution.
