Not officially mind you, these stores just said ‘screw this’ to the Street Date and decided to start selling the game early. Here’s Tilmen of NiNTENDOMiNATiON getting his copy early:

So yes. If you’re in Germany, start looking for copies of Super Smash Bros for 3DS in local video game shops. Hopefully you’ll be able to get the title before the release date!
No, this title is not a joke. Apparently, the people behind the Mortal Kombat movies (you know those, right?) are actually making a movie based on Tetris. Because as we all know, a game based on moving blocks into lines has HUGE movie potential in today’s world of Hollywood blockbusters…
Here are some quotes from makers Threshold Entertainment, if you need them:
It’s a very big, epic sci-fi movie. his isn’t a movie with a bunch of lines running around the page. We’re not giving feet to the geometric shapes.
Brands are the new stars of Hollywood, We have a story behind ‘Tetris’ which makes it a much more imaginative thing.
What you [will] see in ‘Tetris’ is the teeny tip of an iceberg that has intergalactic significance,

So what do we think about this whole announcement? Well, you can find out in the full post below…
Want to play Super Smash Bros for 3DS with a Gamecube controller, like you did with Melee and Brawl? Not interested in the idea of paying a decent chunk of change for a third party accessory? Well if so, it looks like you’re in luck, since Youtube user dekuNukem has posted a tutorial on doing just that! Here’s his guide to adding Gamecube controller support to Super Smash for 3DS:
The parts required cost about 12 dollars, and aren’t particularly difficult to buy. Still a bit stuck? Keep reading for some more useful info, like a photograph based guide the same person has posted on Imgur!
As you probably know about the Super Smash Bros series, giant characters are generally a common fixture in the franchise. But while the Super Mushroom and Giant Brawl/Melee/fight/whatever options let you play as pretty big versions of your favourites even within the rules of the game, a new glitch has been found that let’s you fight characters that are way bigger than even that! Behold, Multi Man Smash’s Giant Character Glitch:
Because you see, in this mode (and only this mode), eating a giant character with Yoshi doesn’t work the way it’s meant to. Instead, every time the character gets turned into an egg, they get bigger, by about twice the size or more.
The end result? A Yoshi that’s literally as big as the screen. It’s pretty amusing to watch really, just to see your character attempt to take down a foe that manages to tower over even the bosses and Giga Bowser with ease.
But what do you think? Neat glitch? Maybe a bit disappointed it’s not doable in the normal vs mode?
Well, the Japanese one anyway. Just have a look at this:
What the hell are with those silly costumes the Nintendo characters are wearing? Why does Link look something like Willy Wonka from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? Is Bowser a hipster? What in [whoever's] name is going on here?
Nintendo, your Japanese ads were always a bit strange before, but this takes the biscuit.
In a move designed to please fans of Mario Kart DS (and other old school Mario Kart games), Nintendo have announced the B-Dasher will be coming to Mario Kart 8. It’ll be available in one of the DLC packs released later this year.
Here’s a trailer:
So it’s a nice enough new vehicle. But what do I think of the kart? Well to be perfectly honest, I’m not too interested in it. Link and the Villager as characters? Awesome. New tracks? Cooler than cool. But the B-Dasher wasn’t a very good kart back in the Mario Kart DS days, and to be honest, I strongly doubt it’ll turn out to be a very good kart in Mario kart 8 either. Nothing wrong with new karts, it’s just that this one doesn’t seem like one of the better choices.
So it’s a no from me. Maybe I’ll be a bit more enthusiastic if Nintendo reveals the Dry Bomber, Egg 1 or ROB BLS karts are returning as DLC instead…
Ever wanted to blast your way through Hyrule Warriors on Epona, Link’s trusty steed from Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess? Well, thanks to a recent DLC announcement by Eiji Aonuma, it seems like you’ll be able to do so!
Because as of October 16th, the first DLC pack will be released for the game. And this one will let Link ride Epona as a weapon, even running down enemies on horseback like he did back in the days of Ocarina of Time!
Here’s a picture:
So yeah, who else is up for some Hyrule Warriors horse riding when this DLC pack gets released?
It’s not often you hear this, but we’ve actually got a games console with an Australian release date announced before the US or European one! The New Nintendo 3DS (a more powerful 3DS model with extra RAM and a second analogue stick) is being released in Australia on the 21st of November 2013, just in time to coincide with the holiday season.
This was announced in a surprise Australian Nintendo Direct, which can be viewed below:
Either way, that’s probably good news for everyone in the US and Europe. After all, if the console is coming out in Australia this soon, then it makes perfect sense that it’ll also be coming out at around the same time in other regions.
But what do you think? Surprised at the early release date? Going to buy one on that date?
Ever kind of looked at the Wii and DS game libraries and wished Nintendo still had that ‘Seal of Quality’ thing? Or desperately started praying that the flood of crap found on the app store’s of the mobile phone world wouldn’t make it’s way to the 3DS and Wii U? Well, you could just be about to have another breakdown, because this new ‘indie’ title looks to be one of the worst games ever released on a Nintendo system. And trust me, in an age where Torchlight and Fireplacing actually existed… that’s actually saying something.
Just look at Meme Run:
See that low quality piece of flash game like crap? Well… according to the developer… it’s coming to the Wii U eShop.
Or to cut a long story short, there’s an unused menu item in the game’s ROM data which lets you filter stages by those you’ve downloaded. Which given the lack of online downloadable content already available for the game, and the fact that this is tied to the stage selection menu in options, pretty much confirms that you’ll be able to buy extra stages in the form of DLC. What stages will they be? Will they be distributed individually or in packs with extra contents? No one knows yet, but it does seem like we could be getting a similar deal to the DLC in Mario Kart 8, when it comes to this game.
