Other than a new (old) Castlevania game hitting the Wii U Virtual Console and the latest adventure starring Pac-Man and his hauntly homies, there's not a heck of a lot of new content coming out on Nintendo consoles this week. Prepare to be underwhelmed.
For those of you who have been looking forward to the chance to make your 3DS look way more snazzy, firmware update version 9.0.0-20U is here to save the day. Cray-cray name aside, all you really need to know is that this latest update is available right now, and it finally brings themes to Nintendo’s portable console.
Chances are that, if you you’re a Nintendo 3DS fan and you’re reading this, it’s only because you’ve taken a short break from the portable launch of Super Smash Bros.. For everyone else, consider this your friendly reminder that Smash Bros. is kicking it up a notch at retail on digitally today, with little else launching on Nintendo platforms to serve as a distraction.
It’s a relatively quiet week on the Nintendo front, but that’s to be expected when a single big game is releasing and said single game just so happens to be Hyrule Warriors for the Wii U. Few publishers want to go toe to toe with Link and Co., so unless you’re excited about pulverizing endless waves of baddies with a Master Sword, you might as well take a seven day nap until Smash Bros. hits the 3DS.
For those who came to smash: The 3DS version of Super Smash Bros. is nearly upon us and, to celebrate, Nintendo has announced the first big tournament, which is set to begin on Oct. 4 and will be hosted out of GameStop locations around the country.
The Final Fantasy series has always been known for its fantastic soundtracks, which finally take center stage in the newly released Nintendo 3DS rhythm game.
If you ever wanted to punch Pikachu in the face while humming the battle theme to Final Fantasy V, then this week’s lineup of new releases on the Nintendo 3DS is just for you. Get ready for the Super Smash Bros. demo and Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call.
Nintendo announced that Super Smash Bros. 3DS will be getting a demo prior to the game's launch in North America and Europe. Select 3DS owners are already receiving download codes for the demo.
Nintendo revealed that Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will get a demo prior to their launch. The demo will allow players to earn rewards for the full version of those games.
You no longer have to wonder whether your favorite character made it into Super Smash Bros. 3DS and Wii U. Twitch streamers with early copies of the game have discovered the full roster.
There’s a rather diverse mix of games hitting Nintendo consoles this week, including new platforming game Teslagrad, rhythmic fighter KickBeat Special Edition, and even a handful of sales for those of you who like to shop on the cheap.
The monthly Club Nintendo rewards program has refreshed its crop of digital goodies for the month of September, offering up eight new games for loyal customers to grab in exchange for their Coins. Look for some Nintendo staples in this month’s games, including Mario, Link and the pink ball of suction, Kirby.
Usually the announcement of a new piece of hardware is a cause for celebration in the gaming world. With the New Nintendo 3DS models being announced this week, however, I can't help but feel some pretty extreme apprehension about Nintendo's future. This new piece of hardware makes very little sense.
Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will take the awesomely named Slowbro to new heights. A new gameplay trailer aired at the 2014 Pokémon World Championships shows Slowbro undergoing a Mega Evolution.
It’s another slow summer week in the Nintendo camp, but at least the Wii U is getting a pair of pretty sweet Virtual Console games featuring a kart racing plumber and the Blue Bomber himself, Mega Man.
