Welcome back to another News Roundup! Today I talk about the Hyrule Warriors Direct on August 4th, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker being delayed in Europe, and more!

The official Twitter account for Hyrule Warriors has confirmed that online cooperative play will not be supported in the game. That doesn’t mean there won’t be any online play though.
Michel Ancel, the man behind the well-known Rayman, has started his own studio called Wild Sheep Studio. Even though he has his own studio now, he is still going to remain part of Ubisoft and continue working on projects there as well.
Ubisoft also confirmed to Eurogamer that Ancel is working on a sequel to Beyond Good & Evil:
“In many ways, BG&E is an inimitable game – it appeals to all generations of gamers and is an inspiration behind many of Ubisoft Montpellier’s past and future games. It’s still far too early to give many details about this new title, but what we can say is that while Michel and the team at Ubisoft Montpellier are working with the core tenets of BG&E, they’re developing something that aspires to push past the boundaries of a proverbial sequel and leverages next-gen technologies to deliver a truly surprising, innovative and exceptional game. The entire team is excited about the direction this extremely ambitious project is taking, and we’ll have more to share later, as it progresses.”
BUT that’s not all. Much like Mega May, August 2014 will see a Mega Man title released on the eShop each Thursday. I’ll even go one further say these are the titles:
Mega Man 5 (NES)
Mega Man 6 (NES)
Mega Man X3 (SNES)
Mega Man Battle Chip Challenge (GBA)
However, the release order will be a mystery… so you’ll have to fire up your Wii U each Thursday to see which one came out!
