[W.I.P] The Unofficial amiibo Collectors Companion

When Nintendo released their amiibo NFC figurines collectors went crazy over them with many models soon becoming sold out and with Nintendo not manufacturing a lot of these models they became extremely hard to find, each new batch of amiibos are greeted with the same response, so its clear that amiibos are more of a collectors device than one for gaming.

The Unofficial amiibo Collectors Companion

Collectors like keeping what they collect in pristine condition, but they also enjoy looking at what they have collected, some people use display cabinets, but if you do not have much room, this is not really an option so you have to store them away somewhere and then go there to look at them, which can be a bit inconvenient if they are at a different location from where you live.

But thanks to this application being created by DefaultDNB which will let you catalogue your collection, put away your amiibos but also let you look at what you own, here are some of the features it has at present and some of its upcoming features:

[+] Music and announcer sfx for each character borrowed from Smash Bros U (props to Crediar)
[+] Blurb per character from Nintendos official Amiibo store.
[+] Quick ticks to see who’s missing from the flow.
[+] HQ artwork from Nintendos official store (temp artwork is in place until Nintendo update their store on release dates)

[+] Favorites view (and possibly other view configurations: removed from this version)
[+] Game compatibility chart (created but has been commented out for now)
[+] Simple animations for flicking through (does it need it?)

Here are some images:

DefaultDNB would like some feedback and suggestions for the application:

[+] Any feed back welcomed!
[+] So far I have had no testers other than my self to play with this, so would be good to have some perspective on this.

So if you have any ideas or suggestions, post below/on the forum :)

Bizerta: Silent Evil Images Revealed

In an interview with cub3d.com, Edrox Interactive, revealed some images of a Wii U game, they had to stop creating for the PS Vita due to publishing restrictions.

The game is a survival horror and i am sure from the title, two very popular horror games come to mind, here is a quote from the source:

Resident Evil and Silent Hill inspired Bizerta: Silent Evil from the rising independent studio Edrox Interactive is shining light into the horror genre’s presence on Wii U.

After beginning production in September 2014, with a planned PS Vita/PlayStation Mobile release, German studio Edrox Interactive were forced to revaluate the future for their upcoming horror IP due to publishing restrictions for the handheld. Since then, the studio has ultimately made the jump over onto Nintendo, officially delaying the game’s development on other platforms.

Bizerta: Silent Evil sets the stage inside a disheveled mansion, softly lit by the moonlight overrunning its foliage and blanketing corridors with darkness. Players, armed with a flashlight, are confronted with panic inducing gameplay elements, driving forward into the monstrous nightmares lying in wait lurking silently beyond the shadows.

Here are the images:

Loading fake Twilight Princess 3D eShop listing from hacked photo causes online ban


Nintendoeverything says:

“Earlier today, rumors surfaced about The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess possibly coming to the 3DS. That speculation came about after images surfaced which showed people meeting someone in the StreetPass Mii Plaza who had supposedly been playing the “remake” – see below.



We didn’t post about the rumor as we had a pretty strong feeling that it was fake. Sure enough, it was. One 3DS owner managed to hack his system, which allows for any image/text he wants to appear as his recently-played game.

This wouldn’t be a problem for other 3DS users in most circumstances. However, many folks encountered the person with the hacked system at the Zelda Symphony Concert in Germany today. A ton of people attended the event, and many fans brought along their 3DS units in hopes of receiving some StreetPass hits. Unfortunately, you may have a fairly big problem on your hands if you happened to have conducted StreetPass with the hacked system.

We’re hearing reports that every user who received that person’s Mii and attempts to load the Twilight Princess 3D eShop page (which doesn’t exist of course) is being blocked from online services. This could affect quite a number of European 3DS owners who attended the Zelda concert earlier in the day. I’d imagine affected users would need to contact Nintendo in hopes of being unbanned. If you did come in contact with the Mii, be sure to delete it from the StreetPass Mii Plaza!

Thanks to Robin for the tip.”
