Repair Tech, the company that handles Nintendo UK's customer repairs, has confirmed that a serious fire broke out at one of their warehouses recently. The cause of the fire is unclear, but the smoke was so dense from the burning plastic that firefighters had to withdraw temporarily. 

The fire affected a number of Nintendo customers, but the warehouse was limited to repairs from customers in the UK, so it wasn't as widespread as it could have been, and no one was injured. Those who sent in products for repairs will be shipped replacements, and Nintendo will be providing some free eShop credit to those affected as well. Hit the jump for Nintendo's statement. 

Longtime Ubisoft employee and Rayman creator Michael Ancel has taken to YouTube to show off an unused level in Rayman Legends. Dubbed "Chateau Dracula," the scrapped level is a large Gothic castle complete with a dining room, library, wine cellar (or is that blood in the bottles?), and more. Unfortunately this spooky level was axed due to time and budget limitations, but maybe it will re-surface in a future title. Check out the footage and screenshots below!

A recent interview with former head of indie relations at Nintendo Dan Adelman revealed his feelings on letting any developer create and publish content to the Nintendo eShop. Adelman, who worked for nine years helping indie developers get their games on Nintendo consoles, feels that the market needs to be open but also regulated to avoid poor content. 

Nintendo's approach has always been on the side of approving developers rather than approving content. The idea is that if you're a trustworthy and capable enough developer to make games for the platform, then beyond that it's up to you. Unfortunately, shovel ware is a very predictable byproduct of an open marketplace. The onus to ameliorate this issue ultimately falls on the platforms. It used to be that the preferred solution was to have a gatekeper model, but that had real drawbacks, because you can miss you on some amazing games. - Dan Adelman
