Nintendo of America has started to sell the New 3DS cover plates on its online store. Nintendo of America has yet to specify if the New Nintendo 3DS will reach the States a stand-alone model as the system is only available as part of a Animal Crossing bundle. I fully expect that it’s only a matter of time before something officially is announced.
No surprise here, but it appears that the Japanese public loves Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer. Since its release, just 2 months ago, the title has now sold over 1 million copies. Nintendo has to be pleased with sales thus far and will only get better headed into the holiday season. Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer will be releasing here in the West in the very near future.
Will you be purchasing Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer?
Here is one of the official TV commercials for Animal Crossing: Happy Home Design for Nintendo 3DS. The adorable 30 second spot does a magnificent job showcasing the game and will no doubt be one of Nintendo’s heavy hitters come Holiday time. Word out of Gamestop is that they are completely sold out of the New 3DS bundle for pre-orders so be sure to get in line early if you want to score the game and the system bundled together.
Check out the TV spot and let us know what you think.
Nintendo has announced the official release date for their upcoming 3DS title The Legend of Zelda Triforce Heroes. The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes launches for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on Oct. 23. One of Nintendo’s biggest critical hits at this summer’s E3 video game trade show, The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes lets up to three players team up locally, via Download Play with one game card or online using a wireless Internet connection to cooperatively explore inventive dungeons and battle bosses.
I had the chance to play the game at my local Best Buy when they were showing it during E3 and walked away very impressed with the game.
Looks like we won’t have to wait long now gamers. Are you going to pick it up?
Today, Square Enix has announced that Dragon Quest XI is headed to the Nintendo 3DS, PS4 and Nintendo NX. While Nintendo’s mysterious NX system was changed to a “we are looking into it” status, we find it VERY interesting that the RPG giant mentioned Nintendo’s newest project during today’s announcement. We don’t know what shape or form the new NX will take, but it is certainly an interesting development to hear from developers regarding the system. You can read all about the upcoming game, below:

During today’s Nintendo World Championships, the company displayed a brand new title headed for the Nintendo 3DS. The game looks to be a mix of a shooter and soccer title and was revealed during the 2nd stage of the event. The game looks very interesting and I am interested in seeing it for myself in glasses free 3D.
Here is a sweet Nintendo 3DS Vs Wii U comparison video of the newly announced Hyrule Warriors. Check out and see the subtle differences in the game. We think that the game translates decently to the portable and we can’t wait to hear more about the game next week at E3 2015.
