As you may or may not know, the Nintendo 2DS console has not as of this time been released in Japan.  Why is that?  Who knows, some say it’s due to everything from Nintendo’s complete domination of the market making it unnecessary to stereoscopic 3D being more tolerated by Japanese audiences.  Either way, it’s not there yet. But is this about to change? It might well be so, since Nintendo have now registered a trademark for ‘Nintendo 2DS’ In Japan. Want to see it?  If so, keep reading!

With the possible exception of the NES era, Nintendo is usually not the first company people think of when it comes to difficult video games.  But while things like the Super Guide and hint videos have made some people consider recent Nintendo titles as rather easy, there are in fact quite a few challenges in Nintendo games that are very much incredibly difficult in every sense of the word.  So here’s a list of them, of the ten most difficult challenges in Nintendo games.

According to a video on Youtube anyway, where they announce it as happening between December 14th and December 15th at a ‘Nintendo Zone near you’.  Here’s the official video announcement: How it works is quite simple.  Basically, if you go past a Nintendo Zone, the data you send and receive isn’t only relayed via others who used said hotspot, but those who used any Nintendo Zone across the entire country.  So in other words, you receive StreetPasses from people who visited Nintendo Zone hotspots other than the one you used, and send your own data to random people in other areas as well.

As you may have gathered from this perplexing footage, the game seems to revolve around the 3DS’ AR function; a welcome, underused feature, yet probably not used to the extent we wish, as it seems the crux of the action consists of taking photos of mundane objects for them to appear in an incredbly odd museum. Still, at a reasonable price this could be a fun diversion for 3DS owners. Will Chibi-Robo Real Life Action arrive in western territories? The Gamecube original remains rare and […]
