With a bunch of other announcements from Nintendo today including a new 3DS version and the official confirmation of Shulk in Smash Bros, we finally get to see high quality images of the fantastic interactive figures called Amiibo. Here you can see Fox McCloud, but check out the full gallery for tons more. I think I may pick up Samus as well.

Ever wanted to see Fox fight Falco Dragon Ball Z style? I know I have! These two videos are "Tool Assisted Speedruns", meaning they used emulators and special tricks to perform moves perfectly, there are no human players that can do these things, though in theory it would be possible. I'm pretty sure these are also the Project M versions of Fox and Falco, not original Brawl. Nevertheless, impressive! Don't blink, you'll miss the good part!
PS, there's one other video with Fox, Falco, and Wolf.
Krystal's Trophy appears!
Now, this COULD be a hoax, but it's the most accurate, complete hoax I've ever seen. This is probably a real leak. You can find the other interesting bits of info below.
New characters revealed:
- Bowser Jr.
- Mr. Game & Watch
- Ducks and Dog (Duck Hunt)
- ROB the Robot
- Dr. Mario
- Shulk (Xenoblade Chronicles)
- Dark Pit
Worried about Krystal not appearing in the game, don't worry just yet! It's clear from the roster images that there is more than enough space for more characters. Actually, it's better than that. The layout of the roster looks like it's MISSING some slots by the way they are arranged (at the bottom). Then there's the fact that the leaker claims there will be DLC characters including (for now):
- Chorus Men
- Ice Climbers
The Master Hand appears in a timed battle, as in all the other games in the series.
All the videos have been taken down already, but the screens are still up. The leaker really liked taking photos of the women trophies focusing mostly on their... assets, so be forewarned.
It's rumored that the leaked videos and images are from an ESRB rating version of the game, but the leaker was a Nintendo of America employee. The original leaker has been identified, fired, and sued. Remember kids, don't violate your non-disclosure agreements!
Here's a short fanfilm that recreates Krystal in the crystal and the Krazoa circling around using the MikuMikuDance animation program.
Thanks to FoxType for the info.
The original Garry's Mod Krystal rig by Jake4159 looks like it was constructed using the old Unreal Tournament 2004 model from WAAAY back.
Thanks to RoboCop for the info.
Following the original video, here's some additional footage of Krystal fishing using a squeaky toy from Further Confusion 2013.
Thanks to Brian for the info.
I'm serious about getting caught up with the site. Today, I posted 7 stories. This morning, I had 186 emails in my inbox, waiting to be responded to or otherwise dealt with. Tonight, at my stopping point, there are only 117 emails left. I still have tons of notes and todos to go through, but I'm starting to turn the tide. Thank you for being so patient with me. Every email yet to be responded is over a year old now, so if you get got or get an email response from an email you sent a long time ago, that's why: I've been so behind.
Hope you enjoyed the new posts today. I'll have more posts tomorrow too.
foxmccloudff7 sent me some photos of his two Krystal mods, Fox mod, and Arwing mod for the racing game Modnation. The mods can be viewed and downloaded by going to the Creation Station and looking up user "Fox_McCloudFF7".
Thanks to foxmccloudff7 for the info.
This one came out a while back, but I never got around to posting it. For those who haven't seen it yet, you're in for a treat as Star Fox and Star Wolf duke it out above an Earth city!
Star Fox: Invasion is by Warialasky. Thanks to Dogman15 for the info.
