A Quick Update on the site

Nin3DSNintendo 3DS NewsLeave a comment

Since some of the issues seem to have slowed down, we’ll probably continue adding new articles and content starting from either tomorrow or saturday.  I may also relaunch Nintendo 3DS Community (under a new name, maybe) at this time as well. Sorry for the inconvenience these issues have caused, but we’ve been having enough hosting issues that updating wasn’t practical for quite a while now…

Sorry about the technical issues on the site…

Our hosting is not working too well right now, and we hope to get it sorted out soon.  If not, I guess it’ll be time to try one of the myriad other companies we were recommended, and see whether their track record will be any better. Sorry for the inconvenience, and hopefully sites like Nintendo 3DS Community will be back up soon.

Another Nintendo 3DS Daily Update

Nin3DSNintendo 3DS News1 comment

The site will probably be back up and running by this weekend, along with Nintendo 3DS Community.  This is because all media has been restored, along with the database, text content and other neat stuff. A redesign is also forthcoming, which will more closely tie this site into Nintendo 3DS Community, redo the branding entirely and make both of them a tad more general Nintendo based than they currently are.  That should be done within the next few weeks or so. So yeah, quick update for everyone.  Sorry about the delays in this site getting updated.

So, sorry about the site downtime and stuff…

We’ve now moved everything (all files and database content) to a new web server, and as you can see, the site is running again. However, please keep in mind two things: 1. We haven’t moved all the images/media files over yet.  Hopefully we can get that done soon, especially given how half the 2013 content seemed to get lost in the transition. 2. The new site design will be launched within the next few days.  This is because the current style… isn’t really that appealing any more, and to be honest, I think a new host means a new start. So yeah, don’t panic, and try and stay patient while waiting for the site to reopen!

Cheating in the Pokemon National Championships?

Nin3DSNintendo 3DS News6 comments so far


Oh boy, this should certainly be interesting to watch.  Apparently, some competitors have been complaining about three time Pokemon champion Ray Rizzo and his Aegislash Pokemon, which was seemingly held in a Pokeball not usually possible to use for that Pokemon species. Or in other words, they say the Aegislash was held in a Dream Ball, an item which was exclusive to the Dream World in the fifth generation games and which isn’t possible to use on any Pokemon from the sixth generation of games (the Dream World doesn’t exist in this generation, so no Kalos Pokemon can be found there).

A very quick update on Nintendo 3DS Daily/Community

Nintendo 3DS Daily’s redesign is probably coming within the week, and Nintendo 3DS Community will be relaunched (complete with new style/logo/other sutff) within a day or two. Not sure about Super Smash Bros 4.com or its forums, I’m not sure I have time for them.  And Wario Forums?  I’m still running the site, but a redesign there isn’t exactly a top priority at the moment. This has been an official service announcement from the Nintendo 3DS Daily and Nintendo 3DS Community staff!

Smash Bros 4′s Smash Run will have Kraid and a Kremling Boss?

Nin3DSNintendo 3DS News3 comments so far


Well, that’s what this video from GameExplain says. Apparently, Bonkers (a mini boss from the Kirby series), Kraid and a Kremling based boss from the Donkey Kong Country series will be present in the 3DS version’s Smash Run. So what do I think?  What Kremling will the Kremling boss be based on?  Find out in the full post!

Youkai Watch; New Nintendo Direct Presentation!

Nin3DSNintendo 3DS NewsLeave a comment


Okay, it was actually held yesterday.  But either way… did anyone actually even expect a Nintendo Direct for this title?  Because I know I didn’t.  Heck, I didn’t expect a Nintendo Direct video for just about anything in particular this soon after E3.  It just seems like the whole thing came completely out of nowhere. Either way, here’s the video: So yeah, thoughts on it?  I’m not really interested in it myself, but perhaps other people here might be.

Miyamoto; We’re Currently working on More Zelda Games for the 3DS!

Nin3DSNintendo 3DS News2 comments so far


Or more precisely, they’ve currently got ideas for new Zelda games on 3DS that they haven’t announced yet, meaning that A Link Between Worlds is not the last such title on the system. Here’s Miyamoto’s original quote, in response to a question about the future of the Zelda series and upcoming games in it: In addition to that, we have ideas for Nintendo 3DS which we have not announced yet, so I hope you will look forward to them. But while that seems clear enough, keep reading to find out the types of Zelda games I suspect Nintendo might be working on for our favourite handheld system!

Oh hey, Japanese Pokemon fans can win another special Edition 3DS System…

Nin3DSNintendo 3DS News3 comments so far


In a raffle.  That you get an entry for by spending over 1000 yen at the Denny’s and Famil family of restaurants in Japan.  Apparently, there are ten of said systems to be won via the raffle, and another five to be won via an email campaign on the official website.  Here’s a picture of the system design in question: As you can see, it’s a pretty nice design!  Decent colour scheme, decent styling around the edges, a pretty neat picture showing off Yveltal and Xerneas (alongside Ash and Pikachu from the Pokemon anime series).  Pity it’ll never be released to the public, or made available to buy or win outside of Japan. So yeah, what do you think?  Are […]
