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 you a bit jealous that Japanese Pokemon fans are getting yet another exclusive 3DS XL design? Do you wish Nintendo would sell these outside of Japan, like through Club Nintendo or something? If so, post your thoughts here or at Nintendo 3DS Community.com now!
And for the most part, it’s not a bad list (albeit a very, very safe one). Including titles like Mario Kart 7, Pokemon X and Y and The Legend of Zelda A Link Between Worlds, most of the expected games are included, so keep reading if you want to see the video or their game choices… (more…)
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!
So how many different 3DS designs are there by now? Because we’ve had a ton of Pokemon style ones, one for every game in the Year of Luigi and enough rare Japan only models to last a lifetime. But none the less, now another unique design has been revealed. Behold, the new Mickey 3DS XL design that’s coming soon!
A couple of days ago, we mentioned how a super rare special edition 3DS XL was being given to the winner of a Japanese Pokemon tournament. And how said 3DS system was so rare that only one of these systems would ever be made.
Unfortunately, that didn’t come with a good picture of the system itself. But hey, that’s all changed now, so read the full post if you want to see a much bigger picture of this special 3DS XL system, one which might make you even more excited for this one of a kind console!
Which is pretty good all things considering, especially given how well it’s been doing since then. But yes, the original 3DS was released in Japan on exactly this day (February 26th) three years ago in 2011.
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.
Worried the next Super Smash Bros game was going to be delayed like so many others by Nintendo? Desperately wanting the game in your possession by the upcoming year? Well if so, it seems you should be in luck, since Masahiro Sakurai himself has actually stated that he ‘resolves to complete development of the new Super Smash Bros games and release them in 2014′.
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.
