It appears as though consumers in the U.K. weren’t pleased with Microsoft’s Xbox One press conference on Tuesday. Before the company revealed its next-generation console, the Wii U console’s sales rank was at #390 on Amazon UK. Shortly after the Xbox One conference, the Wii U console’s sales rank apparently jumped by a whopping 875 percent, elevating its rank to #40 on the online retailer.
Jason Schreier, one of the writers over at Kotaku, has confirmed that Nintendo will be holding a Pokemon X & Y presentation and question & answer session at E3 next month. The presentation will apparently be for an hour and a half and will begin at 6pm PT on June 11th. It’s not clear if this is going to be a roundtable event like we have had previous years.

Developer Tecmo Koei has hinted that Pokémon Conquest may be getting a sequel. The game, which is a crossover between the Pokémon and Nobunaga’s Ambition video game series, was released in 2012 for the Nintendo DS, though it was apparently in development even before Nintendo’s latest hand-held console – the Nintendo 3DS – existed.
When asked whether a sequel to the game is coming, Tecmo Koei’s executive vice president, Hisashi Koinuma, hinted that “there was a lot of unfinished material for Pokémon Conquest. …” Do you want a sequel to Pokémon Conquest? Did you enjoy the original game? Let us know in the comments below.

US fans may already be kicking some LEGO goons out of Gotham City, but European gamers are still waiting to join the fight. And with only two days to go before the European release of LEGO Batman 2 on the Wii U, it’s time for a launch trailer – and in true TT Games fashion, it’s as comical as they get.
The trailer shows off some neat aspects with the Wii U GamePad, allowing players to use the device as a map, choose your LEGO partner, and team up with a friend in co-op mode. While one player uses the GamePad, another can play straight off the TV. However, you may have to flip a coin to see who will see their heroes in action on the smaller screen. LEGO Batman 2 is available from May 24 in Europe.
