Last week, the Super Smash Bros. version of the Nintendo 3DS XL appeared in a Walmart advertisement, which said it would be available starting September 19 in the US. Nintendo has confirmed that advertisement with an official announcement today, saying the model will be available next Friday, followed by other editions launching in October and November.
There are two types of reaction videos that are endlessly delightful: giving elderly individuals modern tech, and giving teenagers old gadgets. Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams is on-board with the latest "Teens React" video, going hands-on with the NES alongside a handful of peers.
It looks like the Super Smash Bros. Nintendo 3DS XL will be arriving in the US later this month, at least according to a Walmart advertisement that has surfaced showing the device. The ad was posted over on the Blu-ray.com forum, where it shows the device as (soon) being available online and in some stores.
Today the newest bit of gameplay for Super Smash Bros for Nintendo 3DS has been released. This gameplay shows off how the game will work, 1 to 4 players in the same room, complete with every character that’s been made official so far.
Nintendo has further detailed the changes in its new 3DS and 3DS XL, including how existing 3DS owners can upgrade to the improved consoles, along with some of the limitations of the new features. Current 3DS/3DS XL save data can be transferred across, though since the new version uses microSD not SD, Nintendo says the process could end up a little convoluted. Meanwhile, there's also the chance that some of the games you have may not work with the new models.
Nintendo America may show no signs of getting the new 3DS and 3DS XL, but US gamers do at least get a trio of new bundles, along with details on the first range of NFC-enabled amiibo figures. Two Wii U Deluxe bundles will be offered, as well as a Nintendo 2DS bundle offered in three different colors, all in time for the holiday season.
Nintendo has updated the 3DS and 3DS LL (aka the 3DS XL), the Japanese company's glasses-free 3D gaming handhelds, with better 3D effects and improved controls. Revealed during a Nintendo webcast today, the new portable consoles also add a second analog stick - something Nintendo tried to fix with an add-on "Slide Pad" back in 2011 - as well as NFC, opening the door to interaction with the company's NFC-enabled amiibo game figures.
Today the newest in DLC for Mario Kart 8 has been released - or leaked, is more like it - complete with your very own Link from Zelda. Finally, at long last, Zelda characters will join the fold. Link rolls with a swift red motorcycle and a Triforce kart as well!
The time has come. Back from the grave that was Pokemon Stadium comes Pokken Tournament, a game that matches the world of Pocket Monsters with the classic fighting game Tekken. It’s not the same as Marvel VS Capcom, but it’s not entirely different, either. Nintendo is out for punches!
