Nintendo 3DS News

So, sorry about the site downtime and stuff…

Nin3DSNintendo 3DS News1 comment

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?

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!

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!

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!

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…

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 […]

Super Smash Bros 4; New 3DS Version Trailer!

It’s not entirely new (about 90% of clips in the video are found in older videos of the game), but it does seem this trailer introduces some new content.  So if you want to see a preview of a Steel Diver stage, the Animal Crossing Villager riding a gyroid like a DKC rocket barrel and very small parts of what seems like an adventure mode (not smash Run), watch the video below!

Nintendo finally has a cross buy game on 3DS and Wii U

And by cross buy, I mean a game which you can buy on one platform and play on either without buying it again.  Something which many of their competitors have figured out years ago but which Nintendo seems too scared to actually embrace. That game is Squid’s Odyssey.  Buy it on the 3DS, get it for free on the Wii U.  All assuming your Nintendo Network ID is the same between consoles mind. So yeah.  There’s now a game on a Nintendo system which can be bought on one system and played on another.  Perhaps now this’ll lead to a future where we don’t have to say, rebuy Super Mario Bros 1 for every system’s seperate virtual console library.

New Super Smash Bros Character being revealed Tomorrow?

Nin3DSNintendo 3DS News, Wii U6 comments so far

Yeah, take this with at least a grain of salt given that it’s a rumour related to Super Smash Bros 4, but apparently, a magazine given out at the World Hobby Fair (an event which is ending tomorrow and has is being held in Japan) indicates a new character is going to be revealed for the game.  Here’s a picture of the magazine in question: There’s apparently something there asking about a newcomer, one who isn’t listed on the page.  And given that Nintendo is apparently present at this event, the chances that they’ll show something off at it are pretty good. So yeah.  We could be seeing a new Super Smash Bros 4 character revealed tomorrow.  Hopefully someone decent […]
