Nintendo has released their official Holiday commercial for Nintendo 3DS and you can watch it above. The new 30-second TV commercial showcases the new Zelda, Pokemon and the insanely popular Super Smash Bros. Although we are certain there are a number of people who are already very happy with their Nintendo handheld, I am sure this will entice some consumers into purchasing the system.

Check out the new TV commercial and let us know if you dig it.


Here is some nice gameplay video starring the 3DS exclusive The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes with Eiji Aounuma. I personally have had a chance to play the game during E3’s Best Buy week and have walked away very impressed. I had my doubts on the game but once there was three of us playing, it was a blast.

Take a look at the video and let us know if you plan on picking up the game.

Nintendo America Selling New 3DS Cover Plates Through Online Store


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.

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.

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.
