I used to spend so many days with my Nintendogs. Playing with them, grooming them, taking them out for competitions... As the years passed, I abandoned them. I know they’re not real, but what I’ve done still haunts me to this day.
You may not know Evan Amos by name, but you’ve certainly seen his work: he’s responsible for many of the clean product shots of video game consoles that you see on Wikipedia (and by extension everywhere else). Today, he’s shared something very cool for fans of old Nintendo hardware.
An upcoming Nintendo Direct focused on 3DS games will take place this Thursday, September 1st at 10AM Eastern Time. Nintendo’s press release notes that “NX will not be discussed or revealed in this broadcast.”
Utada Hikaru is releasing her first full album in eight years.
In Japan, Nintendo said that starting next month, it will no longer support the original “phat” Nintendo DS.
But Kotaku writer, I hear you ponder, the Nintendo DS was incapable of getting anywhere near a resolution you’d call “high”, how could this be? The answer: emulation.
From Iris to Nitro to Nintendo DS, the dual-screened "developer system" went through hell and high drop tests before becoming what it's known as today — the predecessor to the 3DS.
Wayforward has released their last Shantae platformer, Risky's Revenge, on PC. The game, which originally came out on the DS in 2010, comes with updated, HD artwork, Steam trading cards and achievements, and controller support. The two new Shantae games, Half-Genie Hero and The Pirate's Curse, are still in development.
Three Pokémon: Latias, Latios and Kyogre, as modern aircrafts? That makes the Kalos Region Air Force a truly legendary one. DeviantART artist Dekus' piece is odd, but it's totally awesome. And something like this would be a great mod in any flight sim out there.
Long the 800-lb gorilla of handheld gaming, the DS is in its twilight, besieged by smartphones and pushed aside by the 3DS. And, yet, you got one, you old softy.
In America, we're 12 days into our government shutdown, and apparently everyone is cool doing without frilly things like benefits to military survivors or food inspections, because assigning blame for this stupid temper tantrum is terribly uncivil. But we draw the line when it affects our right to bear Pokémon, right?!
You’ve already forgotten about it.
With the introduction of the Nintendo 2DS to bolster the Nintendo 3DS line-up, it seems that the days of the Nintendo DS could be drawing to a close. But it turns out Nintendo still makes a couple of models of the hardware. You just might not see them in your neck of the woods.
Portal on the DS: Aperture Science, the homebrewed version of Portal for the DS shown off back in February, now has a "mostly playable" version. You'll need a flash cart to play it, but the file can be found here.
There's a little dead pixel on the top of my DS Lite. It hangs out on the bottom of the screen, green and dull, stamping every game like an eye floater that just won't go away.
Man, I didn't realize today was going to be Tina-posting-about-Adventure Time day when I got into the office. If I knew I would have brought in a bunch of candy to eat ferociously while pretending I was eating citizens of the Candy Kingdom. (Cause why not? I don't know why!)
Here are a set of new commercials for Pokémon Black And White 2, the latest games in Nintendo's popular monster-catching series.
