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.
Interested in more Kirby Triple Deluxe, the exciting new Kirby game that Nintendo’s releasing on the 3DS in the near future? Well it seems you may now been luck, since some anonymous people in Japan have scanned some magazine articles that confirm even more returning characters and things in the game! Head inside to see them all…
Well this is bizarre. The titular character from Gamecube cult classic Chibi-Robo, and later DS curio Chibi-Robo Park Patrol, is returning in 3DS eShop title Chibi-Robo Real Life Action, released in Japan this very day. 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 […]
Yes, the huge collection of 3DS console designs has now got even bigger! Nintendo has announced that a special Pokemon X and Y themed one will be revealed soon and that it will feature Xerneas and Yveltal on the top case. It will apparently come in the colours blue and red. So Pokemon fans, looks like you may have another reason to buy a 3DS this year! And for those people who like special edition 3DS consoles… well it looks like your collection might be getting even larger soon as well! Here’s hoping this special 3DS XL is sold outside of Japan. Are you interested in a Pokemon X and Y edition 3DS XL? Will you be buying it when […]
A good video game boss should be many things. It should be designed so it fits the level at least somewhat thematically, it should be a decent challenge to top off the level and it should generally be designed in a way that it doesn’t come up off as an utterly boring character. And hence why the Mario series has never been known for great boss battles, it usually succeeds at least at those basic criteria. But it doesn’t always get things right. So these are the six most disappointing bosses in Mario history, six bland bosses that really felt like a let down after the build up of a whole level or even game. Let’s begin… 6. Harsh Possessor […]
Because as it is so far, a heck of a lot of big Nintendo franchises have already been represented in the two or so years the console has been on the market so far. For instance, here are some major Nintendo games already released or that are going to be released before the end of the current year: Super Mario 3D Land Mario Kart 7 New Super Mario Bros 2 Mario Tennis Open Paper Mario Sticker Star Luigi’s Mansion Dark Moon Mario & Luigi Dream Team Mario Party 3DS The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D The Legend of Zelda A Link Between Worlds Pokemon X and Y Animal Crossing New Leaf Fire Emblem Awakening Kid Icarus Uprising Donkey […]
As of this point in time, the 3DS has not been hacked in any way. But while some companies and individuals claim that such a thing happening would be the worst possible outcome for the system and that it’d kill its future stone dead, I have to say I’m actually inclined to think the 3DS getting hacked might actually make certain things better for everyone. So here are some ways in which the console being hacked and opened to things like homebrew software and emulation would be a good thing for the 3DS. 4. Getting Good Quality 3DS Music would be much easier Let’s face it, listening to music from a 3DS game kind of sucks at the moment. Not […]
