It’s listed on the German Amazon website after all, which names the 3DS game as ‘Rayman 3er-Compilation‘ (or in other words, Rayman 3 compilation). It’s not known what the game might contain, but given the name it’s been given, my guess is either ‘all the Rayman games up to Legends’ or ‘all the different versions of Rayman 3 they released over the last ten or so years’. Probably the former.
But what do I think about the game? What’s the chance of this being a real, unannounced 3DS game instead of just another hoax? Keep reading to find out!
Nintendo have announced yet another special 3DS design and bundle! Yep, just earlier today, Nintendo of Europe announced a really cool looking Super Smash Bros 3DS bundle to celebrate the game’s October 3rd release, complete with a special system design featuring the game’s characters.
Also as per the norm, this release will feature Super Smash Bros for 3DS pre installed on the system as a digital download, meaning that anyone who buys one can get right to playing their favourite game within minutes! You know, like with every other special 3DS system bundle, of which there are currently more than anyone can count.
It’ll be sold for £209.99, with Nintendo UK also offering a special T-shirt while stocks last. So if you want proof of the announcement (in the form of a Twitter post), or to comment on the post, head inside by clicking the link below!
All thanks to the one of the official websites for the game, namely the Korean one. It posted updates for these Pokemon forms earlier today, and then quickly took them down afterwards when the site’s managers realised there was a mistake. None the less, here are the two new Mega Evos:
Audino becomes a Normal/Fairy type when it Mega Evolves, getting the new ability Healer (aka able to heal an ally’s status conditions) and having its Defence and Special Defence raised.
So those are the newest Mega Evolutions being revealed for the gen 6 games. Are the designs decent? Are the abilities and changes interesting? Head inside and to the comments below, or to the Nintendo 3DS Community.com forums, to have your say!
It’s already been online for a while due to the leaked Coro Coro scans that we forgot to post, but now Nintendo has added said artwork to the official site, along with various other media and information. We’ve got the information and screenshots for Mega Altaria below, but if you want to see the others (including the much anticipated Mega Salamence), click the read more link to view the full post.
With that said though, let’s begin with the information!
Its Mega Evolved type is Dragon/Fairy, it’s new ability is Pixilate (which turns all Normal moves into Fairy type ones), and its Attack, Special Attack and Defence are increased, with the former two getting the biggest boosts. Here are some screenshots of it:
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!
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.
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!
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!
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.
