While the 3DS is hanging on as a gaming platform longer than some gaming pundits would like, Nintendo is making the most of it by doing some really experimental stuff. For example, there are four odd modes in the newly released WarioWare Gold.
You have probably been here before. A Japanese company announces an exciting new game. The concept sounds great, the trailer has you hyped, and everything seems perfect... until you see those three words that you’ve grown to loathe in 2018. “Only for 3DS.”
Nintendo has released sales data for its biggest selling Nintendo Switch and 3DS games. Which ones do you think came out on top? Oh, the suspense!
Wonder how Nintendo’s current gen game machines are doing? The Kyoto-based company just released life-to-date tallies for both the Switch and 3DS, as well as software totals for each.
It’s nice to see that Nintendo has the ability to laugh at itself a little.
“I really only know about what people are saying online,” Nintendo producer Kensuke Tanabe recently told me over e-mail while discussing how people were responding to his newest game. “What I see personally is that many people are not aware that this game has been released, and I want more people to play this game.”
Maybe you’re waiting for more Zelda or Animal Crossing, but I tend to get the most excited for Nintendo’s stranger, less well-known games. Their new one is pretty strange.
There’s a wide variety of games out this week, from art puzzler Gorogoa to a set of Mega Man collections to the much-anticipated Dark Souls Remastered.
Spring is here, the perfect time to come out of that backlog hibernation and play some new video games. Here are the biggest ones coming out this season.
One of the biggest flaws in Nintendo’s portable console is that you can’t back up your data: if you lose your system, or somehow get your data corrupted or wiped, that’s it. It’s gone. But thanks to a burgeoning hacking scene, Switch fans are now adding features that the Switch desperately needs.
Twitter user Kaboo Factory recently recounted how much Nintendo charged him for first gen Nintendo 3DS parts. It was surprisingly low.
Nintendo may be keeping the 3DS on life support at this point, but there are still reasons to boot up the handheld console. Detective Pikachu, released in North America last week, makes an especially compelling case for any fans of Pokémon who want to learn a bit more about the world of pocket monsters.
While Ash’s Pikachu adores ketchup, Detective Pikachu loves coffee. In a recent interview, the game’s creators explained why.
My Switch backlog is ridiculous. I’m busy juggling Ni No Kuni II and a review copy of Far Cry 5 on my PS4, neglecting the half-played Evil Within 2. I’ve got games to play on my Xbox One as well (some of them old). I figured it was at least okay to stop carrying my 3DS around.
This week we’ve got Far Cry 5’s cult-fighting open world coming to lots of platforms and Outlast 2 being ported to the Switch. There’s other stuff, too.
GameCube launch game Luigi’s Mansion is coming to 3DS in 2018, Nintendo said during a Nintendo Direct today. Nintendo says the game will have “an updated look and new features, like a map that displays on the bottom screen and a boss rush mode.”
There will be a Nintendo Direct tomorrow at 5pm Eastern focused on 3DS and Switch games coming out this year. Nintendo adds that the entire thing should run about 30 minutes and will also include new information about Mario Tennis Aces. And who knows, maybe we’ll finally get Mother 3.
The underappreciated Nintendo DS role-playing game Radiant Historia gets new life today on 3DS, and with it comes a feature that should probably be in every role-playing game: You can skip every non-story encounter.
Winter is here, so it’s a great time to avoid the cold and curl up inside with some video games. Here are the biggest games coming out this winter.
