While our friends in the west could play Mario Kart DS on their Wii U machines for over a whole year now, we will finally see this game on our Japanese systems.
Mario Kart DS will be out in Japan on 25 May 2016 for 950 Yen.
Since we're lazy as shit, here's the description from the Nintendo Co. Ltd's website, translated after the break.
A variety of 32 courses, the Mario family competitive action racing game!
This software is a Nintendo DS action racing game, sold in 2005.
Mario and Yoshi, Princess Peach among others, other characters appearing in the "Mario Kart" series for the 5th time.
There are 16 new courses, from this game onwards, there are 16 remixed courses, so a total of 32 courses this time. In "Battle", 6 stages both old and new can be played.
Items include "mushroom" and "shell", as well as new items make their appearance. "Killer" (Bullet Bill) gets you back on track, "Gesso" (Blooper) will make others blind. Using these will determine victory or defeat.
Besides the modes "Grand Prix", "Time Trials", "VS", and "Battle", there's also an additional "Mission" mode, played in single player. "VS", "Battle", etc. modes on the other hand can also be played against a computer.
*Recommended screen layout is "big screen layout".
Indeed, Nintendosaur and Microsoftisaur teamed up to create a new DLC pack for Minecraft: Super Mario Mash Up Pack (and oh God what a name)!
While no word about it was released by Nintendo Co. Ltd, we know for sure that both America and Europe/Australia will get this pack next fucking week.
This pack comes with stages inspired by Super Mario World, Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and more, along with skins, music, item textures, etc.
17 May in America and 18 May in Europe/Australia, which actually means "at the same time in the west", because time zones.
Video trailer can be found after the break.
And all of this while we thought Nintendo was a kid-friendly game company, now they seem to be even more dangerous than ISIS!
But instead of making Hollywoon style beheading videos, Nintendo gradually takes down services for whatever the fuck the reason may be.
Even Satoru Iwata was taken down, goddamnit!
Speaking of him, he even cut his and Miya-chan's salary to not cut in their personnel.
'Cause Ninty Europe seems to tease us something!
They just Twittered a screenshot of something that closely resembles GCN Bowser Castle.
If you look closely, you will see it's too fucking detailed to be a screenshot from Mario Kart: Double Dash!!.
If ya look even closer, you will see spotlights at the top and ONLY single item boxes on the bottom.
Something MKDD lacked! [rm]
Nintendo promised a BIIIIIIIIG announcement.
Or...TOO SMALL?! BIIIIG!
But in fact, it's nothing too big, it's just Minecraft Wii U edition.
3888 Yen in Japan, unknown price in Europe. [rm]

It doesn't take a baboon for Nintendo and Mojang to find out that Minecraft is SUPER DUPER ADDICTIVE!
That's why you can play Minecraft on your Wii U GamePad, so daddy can watch Fußball while you play it. OH MY FREAKING GOD!
Nintendo Co. Ltd (or the Japanese Nintendo department) FINALLY put the Wii U GamePad as a separate accessory for sale.
But only in Japan.
Or maybe also in?
Hehe, no! [rm]
This iPad running Android from Microsoft separate GamePad from Nintendo will cost you 12,800 Japanese yen (about 120 euros) and you can choose between black or white. REMINDER: Wii U GamePads are region locked, so if you have a broken GamePad for your PAL or NA Wii U, you're still fucked.
They didn't announce it for the western markets yet, but if you happen to be American, make sure you check AldiEbay (or eBay or however the fuck you want to call it).
Europeans and Aussies can probably expect yet another newsletter from NOE.
CW-Games has just announced BlockForm for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U!
This very simple game seems very interesting and we at UltimatePisman were invited to be the first to test the game.
BlockForm just got officially announced while the E3 goes on. BlockForm was not shown in Los Angles like any other game would be, but instead CW-Games decided to announce the game from their own office. [rm]
BlockForm is a challenge to create a full game in only one month time for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U systems of Nintendo. This challenge was performed by the big boss of CW-Games himself, and only himself.
In BlockForm, the player will go through 40 unique levels, collecting all the coins while avoiding obstacles, to unlock the next level. The game was made in one month and therefore, CW-Games has put the focus and effort on the gameplay and design over graphics and audio.
BlockForm will be available in 2016 for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U in the respective eShops.
Nintendo has announced an entire Nintendo Direct focussed around Splatoon.
While the game itself will launch worldwide on the 29th of May, Nintendo will (likely) reveal some secrets on the 7th of May at 16:00 CEST (3:00 PM GMT).
