One of the most popular Konami game franchises that has been around for a long time is Metal Gear Solid. A new version of one of the older PS2 titles is ready to head to the Nintendo 3DS game console soon. The game is called Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D. The game is an updated version of a PS2 classic, and it has some interesting features.
When the original $250 USD version of the Nintendo 3DS was released, not just one whole heck of a lot of people purchased it - but those of you who did were promised 20 free downloadable games, 10 of them NES games that have now been available to play since September 2011, the rest being Game Boy Advance games and announced this week as being available for your downloading delight. This was all part of what Nintendo called an "Ambassador" program for those mad about grabbing the 3DS before the great price drop also known as "woops we didnt realize you didnt want to pay that much" early in the device's life - now the joke is yours! These games include such greats as Wario Land 4 and Mario vs. Donkey Kong - what treats!
One of the most famous art museums in the world is the Louvre in France. The museum is famous for more than its art collection; one of the most noticeable landmarks is the glass pyramid out front. The museum and Nintendo are working together on a project that allows the visitors to the museum to use the Nintendo 3DS for guided tours of the exhibits.
Yesterday we talked about the new old school video games that Nintendo had announced were being added to the 3DS Ambassadors program for the people that purchased the 3DS early at regular price. The new list had a bunch of games from the GBA and Game Cube to choose from. If you are an ambassador program member in Japan, you can get some of those games right now.
The Nintendo 3DS has sold decently with sales since the price cut going up significantly. The downside to that price cut was that the folks that had already purchased at full price felt slighted. To fix that issue Nintendo launched the 3DS Ambassador Program where people that purchased early could get a bunch of free games they can download.
If you own a Nintendo 3DS a new software update is now available for the portable console that brings with it some new features. That update was originally expected last month and then Nintendo said it would land December 8. That would have made the roll out start tomorrow. For whatever reason, the update is available today, a day before expected. That is certainly better than another delay in the roll out.
Nintendo has a bunch of new bundles and video games that launched just in time for Black Friday. We talked about several of the new bundles and games already. Among the new bundles were the pink nintendogs 3DS bundle, the black 3DS Ocarina of Time Zelda bundle, and a red Super Mario 3D Land bundle. Along with those bundles was the launch of some anticipated games.
For a product that was in a bit of trouble for having low sales the first few months it was out, Nintendo's 3DS is certainly continuing to release the iterations, today's announcement on a special packaged game and color combination, namely pink! The Nintendo 3DS in Pink joins the already available Flame Red 3DS bundled with Super Mario 3D Land and the also just announced Hyrule-toting Zelda edition of the gaming system, this team taking on the United States market this holiday season. And what's better than pink Nintendo 3DS? A pink Nintendo 3DS with a puppy game in the box!
Nintendo is gearing up for Black Friday with a couple new 3DS bundles that it hopes will lure the shoppers in for Christmas giving. Two new bundles will be offered starting November 24. The first bundle is a red 3DS that comes with the Super Mario 3D Land game in the box. The red color is called flame red.
It is finally time all you lovers of the Zelda series who've put off picking up a Nintendo 3DS for long enough, time for the Zelda 25th Anniversary 3DS to hit US shores, complete with black casing, gold accents, and Ocaria of Time 3D right there in the box. Thus far the rumors have been that this would only be an international release - and indeed up until now you'd have had to think about importing one later this month here to the USA, but what we're hearing today is that both Best Buy and GameStop will be carrying the package come Black Friday. That's the 25th of November, next week, if you're keeping track, and we're guessing you'll want to get to the store rather early the day before and tent up if you plan on being there in time to grab one.
