Want to play Super Smash Bros for 3DS with a Gamecube controller, like you did with Melee and Brawl? Not interested in the idea of paying a decent chunk of change for a third party accessory? Well if so, it looks like you’re in luck, since Youtube user dekuNukem has posted a tutorial on doing just that! Here’s his guide to adding Gamecube controller support to Super Smash for 3DS:
The parts required cost about 12 dollars, and aren’t particularly difficult to buy. Still a bit stuck? Keep reading for some more useful info, like a photograph based guide the same person has posted on Imgur!
As you probably know about the Super Smash Bros series, giant characters are generally a common fixture in the franchise. But while the Super Mushroom and Giant Brawl/Melee/fight/whatever options let you play as pretty big versions of your favourites even within the rules of the game, a new glitch has been found that let’s you fight characters that are way bigger than even that! Behold, Multi Man Smash’s Giant Character Glitch:
Because you see, in this mode (and only this mode), eating a giant character with Yoshi doesn’t work the way it’s meant to. Instead, every time the character gets turned into an egg, they get bigger, by about twice the size or more.
The end result? A Yoshi that’s literally as big as the screen. It’s pretty amusing to watch really, just to see your character attempt to take down a foe that manages to tower over even the bosses and Giga Bowser with ease.
But what do you think? Neat glitch? Maybe a bit disappointed it’s not doable in the normal vs mode?
Ever wanted to try Nintendo’s games with a Virtual Reality headset? Well, thanks to the recent work of a few hackers, now it seems you can! They’ve actually managed, through some technical process, to connect the 3DS to the Occulus Rift headset, letting people play their 3DS games in what can almost be described as Virtual Reality.
Well, almost. Just one snag exists in this system… Can you spot it in the video below?
Yeah. It repeats the screen view on both ‘eye’ screens rather than somehow merging the same image across both. As a result, while you do indeed get to play a 3DS game with a VR headset strapped to your head, the experience comes across as kind of like wearing a pair of 3DS consoles as sunglasses rather than a true ‘VR’ experience.
Interested in knowing what trophies are available in Super Smash Bros for 3DS? Want to see pictures of every unlockable trophy in the game, all in one place? Well, thanks to some random internet person’s hacking skills or crazy quick in game achievements (which method they used is a matter I’ll leave for you guys to figure out), now you can! Click the read more link below to see every single trophy you can unlock for the 3DS version of Super Smash Bros 4!
Yes, it’s not even out in most of the world, and the game has already been decompiled to a decent enough extent that people are finding ‘beta’ content and stuff! And as the title suggests, a few of these findings hint towards future DLC for the title, in the form of some mysterious looking arrow buttons…
Called chr_10_page_1.tex and chr_10_page_2.tex, they’re the same size as the character select icons and seem to be buttons used to move between character select screen pages. So you’d buy extra characters, and then a new character select menu would open up with the newcomers on it, accessible by clicking said button on the ‘main’ select screen. They also exist for stages too, hinting at stages being something Nintendo will be selling as well.
So DLC looks to be a thing. How will it be distributed? Will it come via downloads or Amiibo? Well, no one knows yet, but if that’s a chance to get King K Rool and Ridley playable, I’m definitely all for it. Paying a couple of quid to get my favourite characters as playable in Smash Bros? Where do I sign up?
But what do you think? Do you think these icons found on the game card suggest DLC? And would you buy downloadable content for this Super Smash Bros game?
Well, this is certainly a smart way to take advantage of the new system! Apparently, the makers of the upcoming 3DS homebrew channel are not going to release the exploit used until the New Nintendo 3DS comes out, so that they get a way to look at how the new system works before it’s patched.
Here’s the reasoning as explained by lead dev Smealum:
I’ve worked way too long and hard on this to throw it away. This exploit is our best chance to get a look at the new 3DS coming out in one month. Using this as an entrypoint … gives us a fighting chance to defeat whatever new shit might be in there.
Either way, the 3DS Homebrew Channel thing is going to be coming in 2015 now, rather than the 2014 release date previously predicted.
We’ve seen the usage of flash carts to play pirated copies of 3DS games. We’ve seen tech demos and homebrew running on 3DS systems via unreleased console hacks by notable people. But up until now, we’ve never really seen the 3DS properly ‘hacked’. Oh sure, hacked Pokemon in X and Y are possible and some people are playing games without paying for them, but neither are really on the same level as anything in the Wii or DS ‘scenes’, where games were filled with all manner of hacks and cheats and various other things due to the hardware and software being ripped right open.
Now though, it seems like things are about to change. With a homebrew capable 3DS and a tool called a decrypter void (as well as a bit of trickery on the hardware side), people have now found out how to decrypt 3DS game ROMs. As in, figure out how to get them working in a format that can be more closely examined and have resources ripped out of them, like in the games available for other systems.
So what does this all mean? Well, the following to be honest…
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!
