Warner Bros. on NX, Toys-to-Life segment
In an interview with VentureBeat, David Haddad from Warner Bros. explained that support for future platforms (including the NX) was not question for them:
We have great relationships with all the console platforms. We believe we play a role in each of them. What I saw with the announcements that were made at the show — I’m fairly bullish about the console cycle, about gamers spending time on them and finding great content, about publishers being able to find returns on increasing investments in that space. We’re constantly deciding how to navigate that, but supporting them is not a question for us.
He also explained that Warner Bros. didn’t have any intention to leave the toys-to-life segment (despite Disney Infinity being shut down, and the market changing):
We’re still under a year in the market, but it’s a large and important market to participate in. We have the power of our partner. Lego is the biggest toy company in the world, and we have the creative vision of TT to build great content. We continue to believe it’s important, and we want to participate in it.

Gnomes vs. Fairies
Here’s the intro for Gnome vs. Fairies, coming out later this year on Wii U:
Mighty No. 9
Mighty No. 9 came out yesterday in North America, and unfortunately, it was not without (a lot of) issues. In fact, the Wii U is, by far, the most impacted. Fortunately for players, a patch is already being deployed:
“We’re aware of some isolated incidents of consumers experiencing issues on Wii U, and they’re actually being addressed in a patch that’s deploying out on Wii U systems today. The patch is already live in Europe, and should be hitting U.S. before the end of the day.”
Make sure you have the patch before playing, to avoid running into any (major) issues!
