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 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.
It’s a dog, believe it or not. The next contender - and his friends - have leaked for the next Super Smash Bros for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. It’s the dog from Duck Hunt! He’s back - he’s finally back!
It’s that time again - time to check the Pokemon Omega Ruby Alpha Sapphire universe to see what’s newest in the news cannon from Nintendo. Today we’re seeing three new MEGA Evolutions of Pokemon from the past, each of them far more powerful than ever before.
It’s the return of Pokemon-Amie, making friends with your Pokemon as it appeared first in Pokemon X and Pokemon Y. This time it’s coming to Pokemon Omega Ruby and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire, and you’re going to be playing dress-up with your best buddy Pikachu. You’ll have to find the little yellow fuzzball first, of course, and this is only an example of possibly future gameplay.
Today one of the final Super Smash Bros. Wii U characters will be revealed in a live feed straight from Nintendo. Devising and producing new launch trailers for every single new character in the Super Smash Bros lineup is a task unto itself, so get pumped up for this three minute presentation right this second!
Fans of the Dragon Quest franchise in Japan will probably have mixed feelings about the arrival of the latest title on Nintendo's 3DS handheld. While Dragon Quest X, also known as Dragon Quest X Online or DQXO, is known for being a semi-online game, on the 3DS it will become fully online, because, instead of running off a cartridge or internal memory, the game will be completely streamed to the handheld instead.
A recent study has shown a robust number of kids in the UK own tablets, and that metric increases all the time. Nearly half of kids aged 12 and under own a tablet of some kind. The study also showed that those tablets have eclipsed the Nintendo 3DS as the gaming platform of choice for youngsters.
This year’s Nintendo presentation at E3 2014 took a real crack at not only standing up to the competition in Sony and Microsoft, but out-hyping them at several points as well. What you’re about to see is an extended look at what Nintendo brought to the table with trailers - more trailers than you could possibly handle in one sitting!
Later this year, Nintendo will be bringing their own version of the Skylanders toy-to-game concept to life with amiibo. These tiny figurines are small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and contain NFC connectivity to interact with your Wii U GamePad. These amiibo figures will also be able to interact with the Nintendo 3DS, 3DS XL, and 2DS later this year with a new NFC reader/writer accessory.
