Super Smash Bros Wii U

Nintendo has announced the Super Smash Bros. is coming to the Nintendo 3DS this summer, and Wii U later this winter. Both versions will heavily promote online play with friends through Nintendo's Miiverse, as well as through random matches with other players.

Nintendo also says it will monitor the behavior of online players, and will punish those who are a hindrance to others, including those who leave matches early, bully others, cheat, etc. Skill-based matchmaking will also be incorporated to keep things fair and fun.

The Nintendo 3DS version in particular will feature a new mode called Smash Run where up to four players get five minutes to team up and beat up enemies in exchange for power-ups. After five minutes is up, those power-ups are put into play, as the players engage in a battle against each other.

No specific release dates were given for either version of the game, but we'll likely get that information in a couple of months at E3.

Pharrell WilliamsPharrell Williams is set to release his new album G I R L next month.

The "Happy" singer, who is preparing for his performance at the BRITs tonight, will release his new record on Monday, March 3 through Columbia Records.

"When Columbia Records presented me with the opportunity to make an album, three things came to mind. One was the sense of overwhelming honor that I felt when I realized that they were interested in partnering with me on the album that I had always dreamed of making. Two, it would have to feel festive and urgent. And three, I instantly knew it would be called G I R L," he said, adding, "I hope you like it."

G I R L is Pharrell's first record in eight years and is set to be released earlier than planned after the success of his single "Happy," and insiders have described it as "incredible."


Lana Del Rey Leaks ‘Ultra-Violence’ Release Date

Lana Del Rey has spilled the beans (by accident!) about the release date for her upcoming album, Ultra-Violence.

While signing autographs and chatting with fans, Lana was caught off guard when one of them armed with a camera asks her, "When is your album coming out?" To which she answers, ""It's coming out soon... May 1st." The woman behind the camera responds, "May 1st? Has that date been announced? This is the first time we're hearing that date." The singer then realizes that she's being filmed, smiling, she exclaims, "What - is that on video?" She quickly tries to save herself by simply saying, "I think so," when the surrounding fans ask her for confirmation of the date.

Grace of Monaco to Open Cannes Film Festival

Nicole Kidman on set of 'Grace of Monaco'Grace of Monaco will open this year's Cannes Film Festival.

Olivier Dahan's biopic, which stars Nicole Kidman as the iconic Hollywood actress-turned-princess, is set to make its grand debut on May 14 during the prestigious film festival in the south of France, although it will appear out of the competition.

The Hollywood Reporter confirmed the news amidst rumors the movie might never see the big screen after it was pulled from the official US release schedule on Thursday. The film's original November release was delayed because it was said not to be ready for viewing, and it was then pushed back to March 14.

Dahan previously admitted he disagreed with Harvey Weinstein over the film's final edit, which was thought to be the reason behind the delay. "What's complicated at the moment is ensuring that you, the critics, can review my version of the film and not that of somebody else. It's not over yet. I haven't given up," he said.
