Below is some concept art that Sega has posted on their blog. Each of the images below also has some notes about the piece of concept art from the development team.
An early development idea which the gears are rotating in different direction. Looks painful if you get sandwiched.
The concept was totally new, so we couldn’t decide the direction of the design. It was tough as we had to re-make this first stages over and over.
The inner cylinder was very confusing when designing as what it was ceiling would be a ground in next second.
Head over to Pure Nintendo to check out the rest of the images.

Last night, popular World of WarCraft player and livestreamer, Swifty, was streaming his game session as usual when the police arrived to his house to investigate an anonymous tip that Swifty was threatening someone with a knife.
In front of live camera, the police questioned Swifty and searched his home before detaining him for further questioning at the precinct.
Apparently, this is the second time Swifty’s home was raided due to false accusations from some prank caller.

Year of Luigi Secrets
How do I unlock Luigi Bros.?
The newest addition to the Super Mario franchise is here, and it’s awesome. Cat Mario is a welcome new addition, the playable characters all have great features, and, of course, the multiplayer option is a blast with friends. But gaming with others is tough, so our friends at Prima Games have put together a list of the best Super Mario 3D World Multiplayer Tips. They fall into the “naughty” or “nice” category, so it’s all about what kind of gamer you are. Regardless of the route you take, have a blast and enjoy!
Super Mario 3D World Multiplayer Tips – The Naughty Approach
Steal the Crown
At the end of each level, the person with the highest score receives a crown. Complete the next course wearing this crown to score a point bonus. If you don’t have this fine piece of headgear, you can attempt to outscore your friend the next time around, or steal it outright. Deliver a ground pound or Cat Power-Up Claw Dive within his or her vicinity to knock off the crown, then grab it. If you don’t care about the crown and want to be mean, push or throw his or her highness into a pit and the crown will be lost for the rest of the level.
Take all the Power-Ups
Let’s say someone on the team is small and in desperate need of a Super Bell or Fire Flower. Instead of letting your friend have it, take the Power-Up and continue on your way. Remember, the more points you have, the better chance at earning the crown.
Grab all the Coins
Similarly, you can always collect each and every gold coin.This ultimately means more 1-Ups and points for you. Too bad you won’t have a Scrooge McDuck money bin to hold all this loot.
