Nintendo 2DS arrives in Japan with limited-edition Pokemon colors

Nintendo 2DS arrives in Japan with limited-edition Pokemon colors

It's been over two years now since Nintendo debuted its 2DS handheld system in the US, dropping the 3DS's clamshell hinge as well as 3D functionality in favor of a slate-like form factor with a budget-friendly price. Now the odd portable is arriving in Japan for the first time, but in the form of special Pokemon-themed editions. The four models come in transparent red, blue, green, and yellow, and coincide with Nintendo's release of updated versions of the original Gameboy Pokemon titles.

Nintendo video compares New 3DS loading times against its predecessor

Loading times are the bane of every gamer. As seconds of loading screens add up to precious minutes over time, you start to wonder just how much more of the game you could play, if it would only load faster. I've even put down games, just because I hated dealing with constant, long loading screens (I'm looking at you GTA Online). Well, if you've picked up Monster Hunter X and feel like you're wasting too much time waiting on the game to load, Nintendo has a way to fix that.

New Nintendo 3DS launches in U.S. on September 25

After questions and speculation and outcries and impatient waiting, Nintendo fans located in the U.S. will be able to get ahold of the smaller New Nintendo 3DS starting next month.

Now the video game company has made an official statement, saying the device will be available starting September 25.

Dragon Quest XI announced as first Nintendo NX game

The makers of Dragon Quest, not only the most popular RPG, but the biggest games series of all time in Japan, earlier today announced the eleventh title in the main series. Developers Square Enix held a 90-minute long live-stream broadcast to announce Dragon Quest XI for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo 3DS, with a tentative release sometime next year. But even more shocking was the fact that the game was announced for the "NX," Nintendo's mysterious next game system.

Wii U demise might come sooner, 5 mobile games scheduled

Wii U demise might come sooner, 5 mobile games scheduled

Perhaps there is very little doubt in anyone's mind that the Wii U is on its way out, especially after Nintendo confirmed the existence of its NX successor. But the ball might actually be rolling sooner than most of us have presumed. Considering Nintendo's notoriety as a slow moving dinosaur, it is almost unfathomable that Nintendo would be putting the axe to its somewhat failed attempt at a current gen console. According to WIRED, however, the signs are quite strong. And perhaps more importantly, rapid change might exactly be what the doctor prescribed.

New Nintendo 3DS tipped for release in North America

New Nintendo 3DS tipped for release in North America

This week Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime spoke up this week on the future of handheld gaming machines for the USA. Speaking without giving direct confirmation to writer Stephen Totilo of Kotaku, Fils-Aime suggested that "some special SKUs might show up", this after speaking about North America and the lack of a release of both new 3DS handhelds to this environment. Could it be that the Japanese market's desire for the 3DS XL and non-desire for a smaller device was informing Nintendo on the USA?

Monster Hunter Stories for 3DS will take a “new direction”

Monster Hunter is dead. Long live Monster Hunter. Or something to that effect. The next installment for the Monster Hunter franchise has just been revealed and its already causing a bit of a stir. First, it will be available for the Nintendo 3DS, no word yet on any plans to debut elsewhere. But perhaps more importantly, there are already hints in place that Monster Hunter Stories, as it will be officially called, will not be like the Monster Hunter that you might have grown to love, but one that its creators will take to a new direction.

Is the smaller New Nintendo 3DS coming to the US?

The New Nintendo 3DS was dangled before fans' eyes but kept beyond reach for a while, later surfacing in a leak earlier this week and, finally, being officially announced for the US market. Only, there was an unexpected oddity. Those who watched Nintendo Direct yesterday morning and kept tabs on the announcements would have noticed that only the New 3DS XL, the larger of the two units, was promised to be arriving next month for US buyers. Nintendo is being vague about why.
