10/18/2011, If you thought that the Nintendo 3DS was rather bulky after it has the 3DS Circle Pad as company, you’re right. The entire thing is a peripheral of monstrous proportions to say the least, bringing the 3DS to first generation PSP-like proportions, making it pretty tough to slip into your pockets in a non-chalant manner. Well, so far the Circle Pad has seen action only in the Land of the […]
10/13/2011, We all know that Nintendo has had more or less a continued string of success in the handheld video game industry right from the early days of the Game & Watch to the Game Boy that held its 8-bit ground for a decade or so, while the DS also took the world by storm – so much so that more than 50 million units have already been sold in the […]
10/11/2011, While Activision might have decided to pull out of the rhythm game business, other companies like Konami aren’t quite done yet and continue milking the series for what it’s worth. Today, Konami has announced the release of DanceDanceRevolution II for the Nintendo Wii. Featuring a selection of brand new pop songs heard on radio recently, the dancing game aims to get you grooving and moving on the dance floor (your […]
10/11/2011, Earlier today we reported about the Sega-themed blue Nintendo Wii that will be released this November. Well, it appears that Nintendo has also announced that the Wii will be arriving in another color – this time it’s going to be black. As part of the holiday bundle, the black colored Wii (with matching controllers) will come with the New Super Mario Bros. Wii and a special Super Mario Galaxy soundtrack […]
10/11/2011, I remember back in the days where Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the Ghostbusters were all the rage – and this new fangled toy known as video games ruled living rooms, never mind that their graphics were positively awful in comparison to today’s realistic renderings. Well, Nintendo and Sega duked it out pretty hard, with Sega having the upper hand in terms of advertisements many a time, but Nintendo’s mainstay […]
10/06/2011, Nintendo has certainly continued its policy of releasing their hardware in a variety of special versions and editions, with the latest being the Monster Hunter 3G Special Pack from Capcom that will come with a Nintendo 3DS in a special design alongside a white shade. Definitely not the kind of color to own if you’re going to spend plenty of palm sweating hours with the 3DS and Monster Hunter 3G, […]
10/06/2011, Super Mario Land 3D might be a month away from release, but that doesn’t stop Nintendo from building up hype about the game. The company has just released a whole bunch of screenshots, renders and a video trailer for the game, and it sure looks fantastic. Then again, when was the last time you were down by a Super Mario game? It’s about time the 3DS got in on the […]
10/04/2011, Not just for playing 3D games, Nintendo has announced today DreamWorks Animation, the Blue Man Group and 3net will be providing 3D video content for their portable gaming console, the Nintendo 3DS.
09/27/2011, I guess Nintendo must be in some sort of creative slump at the moment – after all, their Wii has not received a memorable nor notable game since…er, see, that’s the problem. How about their Nintendo 3DS? It certainly falls behind the shadow of its far more successful predecessor (which actually surprised everyone as before the DS was released, Nintendo was in another slump). Guess Nintendo looked back at their […]
09/26/2011, How big of a Super Mario fan are you? There are probably tons of Super Mario merchandize out there, ranging from clothing to soft toys, keychains and what not, but perhaps you might want to add this interactive Super Mario figurine to your list of collectibles, and given that they’re priced rather cheaply, we think that even casual Super Mario players will get a kick out of these.
09/15/2011, Whether handheld gaming console companies like Nintendo or Sony want to admit it or not, smartphones and tablets are starting to become new platforms for playing games. Games such as Infinity Blade and Rage are good examples of how smartphone/tablet games can feature rich and complex graphics as well, although in terms of depth of gameplay, handheld consoles still take the cake on that one. With games like Angry Birds […]
09/13/2011, A while back we reported that the Circle Pad peripheral for the Nintendo 3DS was confirmed, and now it looks like a date and price have been attached to it. It seems that not much fanfare accompanied its arrival as it made its way onto the Nintendo website rather quietly.
09/13/2011, As if announcing that Monster Hunter 3G is arriving on the 3DS later this year isn’t good enough, there’s more good news for the 3D console. At the Nintendo 3DS conference today, Nintendo and Capcom announced that the next game in the franchise, Monster Hunter 4 will be arriving on the 3DS as well! It looks like there’s still a lot of life left in the 3DS despite the lackluster sales […]
09/12/2011, Pokémon fans (yes, we know you’re out there) would do well to keep their eyes peeled and glued to their TVs this coming Sunday (September 18th) if you’re in Japan. The rest of us just need to stay online. According to reports, Game Freak’s Pokémon director, Junichi Masuda will be appearing on a Japanese Pokémon show called Pokémon Smash and on the show he will be making a “shock announcement”. […]
