Today Nintendo has announced that Lego City Undercover, which is exclusive to the Wii U console, will be released in EU territories on 28 March 2013 and in the US on 26 March 2013.

As you explore, you can use the Wii U GamePad as a communicator to talk to others, to scan your surroundings for clues or criminals, or to view the handy map and GPS route when driving around the city.

Zelda Skyward Sword SteelBook Announced

November 2nd, 2011 Michael Pica

Futureshop in Canada seems to be getting lots and lots of exclusive SteelBooks recently. The latest of which is a SteelBook that is included along side pre-orders of Zelda Skyward Sword for the Wii.

This is a G1 sized case and apparently it will ONLY be included with pre-orders placed between October 26th and November 20th. Also it seems that it’s only included with the standard edition of the game not the Limited Edition bundle with the Gold Wii Remote.

Sadly Futureshop does not ship outside of Canada, which is a shame as this would make an excellent addition to any Zelda fan’s collection.
