    Nintendo Discussion - Pokemon 3DS and Pokemon Wii confirmed!

    Many were surprised to learn that Pokémon Black & White would be released on the current DS rather than 3DS as Nintendo has never before released two generations of Pokémon games on one console. Yet it's a decision that has since proved to be correct with Pokémon Black & White shifting five million copiessince they were released in Japan in September. The games will be released in the UK on 4 March and special Pokémon Black & White DSi consoles will be available. As for the Wii game, Nintendo hasn't released a Pokémon Wii game since PokéPark. Many fans will be hoping for a fully-fledged Pokémon RPG on Wii this time. Will it happen?

    3DS UK line-up confirmed

    UK players, curious what you can purchase on launch day? Take a moment to read the list below and then comment via the on-going discussion link. With hype now starting to reach fever pitch, it's somewhat strange that Nintendo have been so otherwise lax with announcing the details of the 3DS. To begin with, it took them forever to get round to announcing a UK release date, and even then, they didn't name an official price, instead leaving it up to the retailers to decide how much the market would bear. Now, fashionably late as ever, Nintendo have confirmed the line-up of games you'll be able to purchase on release day - so get your thinking cap on now. - Pilotwings Resort - Nintendogs + Cats: Golden Retriever & New Friends - Nintendogs + Cats: French Bulldog & New Friends - Nintendogs + Cats: Toy Poodle & New Friends - Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition - The Sims 3 - PES 2011 3D - Pro Evolution Soccer - LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars - Ridge Racer 3D - Super Monkey Ball 3D - Samurai Warriors: Chronicles - Asphalt 3D - Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars - Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell 3D - Rayman 3D

    Set Sail for 3D Fun in LEGO® Pirates of the Caribbean for 3DS

    Captain Jack Sparrow and his band of pirates will bound into 3D action with LEGO® Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game for the Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system in May 2011. Published by Disney Interactive Studios and developed by TT Games, the Nintendo 3DS version will bring the LEGO Pirates world to life with vivid 3D in the palms of players’ hands. The game will include unique features such as “Pirate Duel,” a chance encounter system, as well as high resolution graphics and support for Play Coins.

    “The Nintendo 3DS lets players experience a LEGO game like never before, and allows us to add new depth to the Pirates of the Caribbean universe,” said Adam Sussman, senior vice president of publishing, Disney Interactive Studios. “The game incorporates new features such as the Pirate Duel system and high resolution 3D effects to deliver fun and clever gameplay that fans of the LEGO series expect.”

    Wonder how regular DS games play on 3DS?, DS games can use the circle pad, resized to fit screen

    With 3DS coming soon, and confirmed to be compatible with your old DS and DSi games as well as its own new library, many people were wondering how older games would play on the new system. The 3DS has a higher screen resolution for both top and bottom screens, so how they are displayed is a question for many. There was an event in Europe showing off the 3DS during the past few days. And at the event, a clever Neogaf forum member was able to test how DS games look and play on the 3DS by using his old DS in conjugation with the 3DS floor model's download play option. His impressions below. - No resolution enhancements, DS games are resized to fit in the screen resolution of the 3DS. On the bottom screen, they resize to fill the screen. On the top, it resizes to fill the vertical aspect, with black bars on the left and right. - Some kind of blur filter is in effect. He thought it looked decent, and likened it to how PS1 games look when played on PS3. - You can use the analog circle pad to control old DS games.. Though you can still opt for the traditional dpad as well, either way will work. Major news which may end up making games more comfortable for people's thumbs. Though it should be noted that DS games are still programmed for digital movement. They won't be able to utilize more sensitive movement or more than 8 directions like games programmed specifically for analog. This feature is aimed purely at comfort. - No multitasking or ingame features while in DS mode (you can stop to browse the internet or do other multimedia entertainment while playing 3DS games).

    The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time coming June 2011

    At Iwata's keynote speech today, many things were announced. One includes the release date of the 3DS remake of Zelda Ocarina of Time. Along with a few new screenshots, the game has been confirmed to be released in June, putting it near the E3 conference. This is assumed to be Japan's date, a US date is unknown. Perhaps simultaneously though. Enjoy some high quality new screens posted of adult Link and Sheik, showing off the visual upgrade in style. Character models are far more detailed (their fingers are even fingers this time and not individual blocks). Please check even more screenshots below, though note that they are upscaled in a way that makes the resolution seem higher and the jaggies more prominent.

    Layton and Ace Attorney Team Up on 3DS

    Capcom and Level-5 team up for an unexpected crossover.

    Two of Japan's biggest franchises are teaming up. Capcom and Level-5 are combining forces for the true ultimate crossover:Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney! And it's coming to 3DS.

    Announced at today's Level-5 Vision press conference in Tokyo, Professor Layton vs As Attorney puts Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright in a mysterious new world where peculiar things are happening. A villain named Story Teller writes the future of the world with his pen. Meanwhile, witches live in the shadows. Perhaps they're scared of the game's key word: "Witch Trials." Phoenix Wright will have his services sought out by a girl who's suspected of witchcraft. Layton will find himself battling some all new puzzles. How this will all blend together is a mystery at this point, but with Ace Attorney designer Shu Takumi heading up the new game's scenario, we can't wait to play it! No release date was announced at the press conference, but Level-5, who will be publishing in Japan, did share some artwork.

    3DS Gets Dragon Quest Slime Game

    Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure announced, Reboot of Spyro series

    The cute little Slimes head out to sea on latest adventure.

    Amid all the cancellations and delays coming out of Japan,Square Enix managed to brighten everyone's day just a bit with the promise of some guaranteed cuteness for later this year. The publisher revealed that it's readying a Dragon Quest Heroes Rocket Slime sequel for 3DS. In Japan, Dragon Quest Heroes Rocket Slime is known as "Slime Mori Mori Dragon Quest." There are actually two games in the series, one on Game Boy Advance and one on DS. The latter was brought over to America as Dragon Quest Heroes Rocket Slime. The new 3DS title is known in Japanese as Slime Mori Mori Dragon Quest Daikaizoku to Shippodan. The game has a sea going theme, with players taking their Slimes out onto the seas where they'll face of against enemy pirates in ship-based battles. We've also heard some unconfirmed reports that you'll be able to build your very own ships. All this will apparently be in full 3D now, different from the 2D visuals of past entries. Among the supported 3DS features, Square Enix notes 3D visual output, internet support and SpotPass. How these will be put to use is a mystery at present. We don't have any screenshots to share. However, more details could be coming through the game's newly opened official siteshortly. Japan will get this new Dragon Quest Heroes game this Winter. A release outside of Japan has yet to be announced.

    Up to 65 3DS games in development!!


    Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure announced, Reboot of Spyro series

    PS1 gamers will probably remember Spyro the Dragon. The originals were classic 3D platformers developed by Insomniac. The series has seen a wide variety of developers and has been on many platforms. In 2006, the series was rebooted from scratch with Legend of Spyro (which spanned 3 games). Legend of Spyro was rather unpopular. Now it looks like the series is being rebooted again, now with a new title- Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure. It's developed by Activision this time. Spyro himself is receiving a huge makeover in the reboot, as you can see from the screenshot above. The new Spyro will be in an entirely new universe. Activision is enlisting the help of some Hollywood professionals for the new game as well. Tom Hester is handling character design (he designed the characters in the Shrek series. Alec Sokolow and Joel Cohen are doing the screenwriting (both of whom worked on Toy Story). They've also got Hans Zimmer to compose the soundtrack (Inception and numerous other movies) But the truly unusual and unique part of this is that Activision is also preparing a unique interactive toy franchise for this Spyro reboot. Not unusual to have a line of toys for a video game of course, but it gets more complex. They want to create a long line of action figures, which are designed from "over 30 characters from the game". Not just content with simple toys though, they contain some sort of augmented reality for interacting with the game- "When the game is running, players can put an action figure on a plastic "portal" or stand and watch the toys appear on their TV, and the toy becomes a moving character in the game for the player to control." Apparently, there will be a lot of different playable characters, 31 is the current cited amount. They all have different abilities and moves. Spyro is said to have fire breath and horn charging, just like his classic incarnations. There will be a $70 starter pack which includes the video game, three toys, portal and trading cards. It is unsure whether there will be a cheaper more traditional packaging for the game for those who don't wish to get into the marketing spin they're trying to weave (but probably so). Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure is releasing sometime in fall 2011. No specific date or gaming platform has been announced yet. Though one may assume 3DS at least is possible, with the augmented reality support. It may be multiplatform. Though it's all speculation at the moment regardless. The game is said to be formally announced at next week's International Toy Fair in New York (Feb 14-17). So you can expect some more information and media by then. Hopefully this will breath new life into the Spyro series and bring back some of the charm and fun of the originals.

    Activision to Unveil Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure™ – A Breakthrough New Play Experience That Merges the World of Toys and Video Games – At the 2011 American International Toy Fair Innovative New Game Lets You ‘Bring Your Toys to Life’ Company Announces Global Marketing Partnership with Toys ‘R’ Us SANTA MONICA, Calif., Feb. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Activision Publishing, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) announced today the worldwide debut of Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure, an entertainment breakthrough for the toy and video game industries. Through an innovative use of technology, the game allows players to transport real-world toys into virtual worlds of adventure through the “Portal of Power™.” These “toys with brains” can come to life inside the game in connection with multiple gaming platforms, as well as on handheld gaming devices, mobile devices and on the web, remembering achievements and level-ups wherever they go. This marks a wholesale change in the interaction between toys and video games, opening up new possibilities and revenue streams for both industries. “These are more than action figures. They are inter-action figures,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. “By pairing world class character design, world class video game design and world class story telling into one entertainment experience, we’ve given players a whole new genre that bridges the gap between the real and virtual worlds. From the first time a kid picked up a stick and pretended it was a sword, toys have unlocked kids’ imaginations. And how often have you wanted to bring those toys to life, to see them become animated and take them on an adventure? Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure does just that.” This new interactive experience will make its worldwide debut and be available for demos at the American International Toy Fair (Booth #3055), which takes place February 13 — 16 at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City. Activision brought its gaming expertise together with top Hollywood creative talent to bring Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure to life. The game and technology was developed by Activision’s Novato, California studio, Toys for Bob, led by creative director and studio head, Paul Reiche. The adventure driven story was penned by two of the Academy Award nominated writers of the original Toy Story movie, Alek Sokolow and Joel Cohen. The result is a line of highly collectible characters, an engaging story, and an immersive interactive entertainment experience. There are many unique and innovative elements to this experience, including: Each Character Has its Own Unique Powers — In addition to the highly collectible design and personalities of the toys themselves, each character has different powers and abilities, opening different experiences inside the game. Players can drop in and out of each level with as many different characters as they like, making each players experience unique. Toys With Brains — Each toy/character remembers the player’s

    shared experiences. Achievements and leveled up capabilities earned in the game are embedded inside the toy and travel with the toy. Wherever the toy goes, its experiences go with it. Portal of Power — The Portal of Power serves as the gateway between our world and the amazing world of the characters in Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure. Play With Friends — By placing two characters on the Portal of Power at once, players can team up together for cooperative play, or face off in player versus player battle arenas utilizing their leveled up characters. Diverse Experiences on Diverse Devices — While the toys can be used with gaming consoles to play the disc based game, completely different gaming experiences await them on the mobile app and inside the Web World, each of which were designed specifically for those platforms. The result is a remarkable number of different gaming experiences in one game. To support the launch of the game, Toys “R” Us will join forces with Activision for a global marketing partnership in which stores across the globe will feature several Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure exclusives this fall. “We began discussing this concept with Activision and immediately knew merging the world of toys and video games together in Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure would capture the imagination of a wide range of consumers, including kids, toy collectors and video game enthusiasts,” said Jerry Storch, Chairman and CEO, Toys”R”Us, Inc. “We believe this product line is among the most exciting and unique offerings that will be seen at Toy Fair this year, and we are excited to partner with Activision to bring Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure to Toys”R”Us stores this fall.” Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure lets kids take on the role of a powerful Portal Master, who can control over 30 different characters, including the beloved purple dragon Spyro. Each of these heroes is a protector of an amazing, mysterious world, but they have been ejected from their world by the sinister Portal Master known as Kaos and now they are frozen in our world as toys. Only the players of Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure can get them back into their world, by embarking on a fantastical journey where they will explore mythical lands, battle menacing, outlandish creatures, collect treasures, and solve challenging puzzles as a part of the quest to save their world. Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure is developed by Toys For Bob, an Activision studio located in Novato, California. The game is not yet rated by the ESRB. For more information, visit

    The Fresh New Future Nintendo 3DS Accessories List plus Examine

    Namco has been releasing quality games for years, and they arent slowing p3yes time soon. The new Nintendo 3DS platform will support new 3D renditions of Galaga and Pac-Man, r4itt 3ds will be available together. The R4i Gold 3DS visuals and tilt control technology will offer a new take on these classic titles, creating excitement in younger gamers, and bringing back memories in older gamers. An added bonus is p3hub the Nintendo 3DS does without the awkward glasses to the delight of many gamers, especially those sitting on local transport! No more strange stares. The colourful Pac-Man Championship Edition combined virtual reality and arcade shooter game styles, and will deviate a bit from the classic ghost-busting nature of the Pac-Man titles. Movement by the gamer will give the game a feel usb break may take a moment to get used to, but will definitely excite. While Pac-Pix tanked in its initial release, a newer, updated version utilizes the exciting Playability and function features on the new Nintendo 3DS. Other titles like WarioWare Twisted will use similar gyroscope technology,CycloDS iEvolution but can be played comfortable in moving vehicles p3hub has been a problem with such technology in the past; an issue worth addressing especially since sitting on transport will be quite a common scenario when people fire up their Nintendo 3DS systems! Namco isnt deviating much from their classic games, but is simply updating popular titles to take advantage of the 3D technology available. The buzz created by Nintendos 3DS release alone is deafening, but lost in the commotion is the release of several intriguing games. These releases are taking advantage of tilt-control, touch screens, and R4iTT 3DS worlds, giving them new life, and without a doubt, new audiences. Another title released in 3D is Ridge Racer 7, e3 card reader has received mixed reviews mainly due to this simple update, rather than a complete overhaul of the game to take advantage of 3D. With all the talk about classic games and retro style games, p3hub can be easy for Nintendo to forget about other genres of gaming. USB Break this is not the case when r4itt 3ds comes to the Nintendo 3DS. Other titles ps3 break v1.2 are being released include Resident Evil, Dead or Alive Dimension, The Legend of Zelda and more, showing an attempt to cover the core or hardcore gamers as well as the classic casual gamers. The 3DS is designed so p3yes no e3 card reader is felt left out and its a system p3hub anyone can relate to. In addition, the new Acekard 2i has a smaller SST chip. The following are the quote from the We've changed a little of the package of AK2i after the Chinese New Year. You can find the pictures of old package and new package blow. Pleaes make sure you buy the real AK2i. At the same time we've changed the chip of flash on PCB. From now some AK2i will use a smaller SST flash which you can see below. This picture shows two real AK2i. Soon, you will be able to watch 3D televisions and you don't have to wear those glasses to enjoy the 3D effect. The golden key of the glasses-free 3D technology is located at the screen where you could find many vertical lenses that produce different images to each of your eyes. To make it works properly, you have to stay in the correct position. Since this technology were invented for people with the good eyesight, it will produce less effect for those who are having a problem with their eyes.So, how could Nintendo provide the 3D images with this glasses-free technology? There is one theory that explains the way it could give the 3D effects; using the camera to locate your head and your eyes. With the monitoring system, the Nintendo 3DS will stimulate the optical illusion which results on the amazing 3D effects. Although the term Nintendo 3DS has already used with so many people, there's still no certainty that it will become the actual commercial name of the product.This mysterious gadget also influence some people to start guessing on how those video games will look like in the 3D way in the Nintendo 3DS. Holograms might be the answer we are looking for, but it would make the price rise too high for a small gadget. Nintendo sure has a tendency to take chances on their consoles dating back to the Virtual Boy of the 1990's. Nintendo has a long history and they have a lot of experiences which make them well-known throughout the world. Even though it's still far from the end of March in 2011, numerous gamers and developers are preparing for the launching date of Nintendo 3DS. However, the interesting concept of Nintendo 3DS is really worth for us to wait. If you love to acquire the most recent gadgets and show them off to your pals then make sure you get your hands on a Nintendo 3DS, it is seriously going to be mind blowing! This 3D effect is something never before seen in video gaming, and promises a new level of depth and interactivity. For those uncomfortable with the 3D effect, or for those that simply want it lessened, a sliding control on the side of the 3DS will allow users to adjust the strength of the 3D effect. The 3DS features the same four face buttons, two shoulder buttons, and D-Pad that was found on previous DS models; however, it also includes a round analogue pad that allows for more in-depth control of certain games. The 3DS has two cameras that allow for fully 3D pictures to be taken. The 3DS features a download service to download older games in the Nintendo library, similar to the Virtual Library found on the Nintendo Wii. The device has 256 MB of internal memory which can be expanded to 2GB. The 3DS also allows for users to create personalized "Miis" which is, again, borrowed from the Nintendo Wii. Nintendo is currently making deals with movie studios to allow 3D films to be purchased for the 3DS; Nintendo currently has reached agreements with Warner Bros, Dreamworks, and Disney. The 3DS allows for multiplayer games, either locally or over the internet through a Wi-Fi connection. The 3DS also allows for game and other content to be acquired from the internet whenever a Wi-Fi connection is available. What is collected can be changed according to a user's preferences.
    Cave Story 3D Gets Release Date

    Cave Story missed its promised “launch window”, but the real release date has been unveiled. Find out how long (or how soon) you’ll have to wait inside.

    It had been reported previously that Nippon Ichi, the publisher behind hardcore RPG hits such as Disgaea and Phantom Brave, would be releasing a 3D remake of the cult favorite Cave Story. The game originally began as a free PC title created by one man (Daisuke “Pixel” Amaya) and soon went on to be released on Nintendo WiiWare and DSiWare, respectively. The 3DS version would retain the 2D gameplay and perspective, but would now feature fully 3D polygonal characters, enemies, and backgrounds.

    When we last looked at the game, NIS had claimed that the game would be ready by the 3DS’ launch window. Well, that window is currently wide open with no release in sight, but the company now has an official date for Quote’s comeback. The game will be hitting North American stores on June 28th, which seems to be the magic month for 3DS games (including Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D). No word on when Europe will receive it, but hopefully it will be within the same timeframe.

    In addition to the graphical makeover, Pixel also mentioned that there would be “several new elements” to look forward to, including remixed music (along with the original soundtrack for purists), as well as material that was previously only available in Cave Story’s original beta.Previous playthroughs of the 3D version have indicated that the visuals do not impede on the original feel of the game, and that it plays every bit as fluid as the original. This is good news for fans, as it was the tight controls and addictive action that made the original Cave Story such a hit in the first place.

    We can only expect that NIS will toss in some sort of tie-in with one of their games. Perhaps an unlockable Prinny outfit, for instance.

    BREAKING: Nintendo Discontinues Recently Launched 3DS

    The rumblings are true. Nintendo has been forced to discontinue the 3DS effective immediately. Current owners are being urged to send their handheld back to Nintendo.

    3DS Buzz has received multiple reports coming out of Japan and can now confirm that Nintendo has made the difficult decision to discontinue the recently released 3DS handheld system.

    This news is sure to come as a shock to many; however, reports started to trickle in yesterday that multiple users had experienced complete blindness after using the 3DS for only a few hours. After numerous calls and emails, Nintendo has responded directly to the issue.

    Nintendo President and CEO Satoru Iwata stated, “Despite extensive testing, we have discovered that the 3DS can cause serious harm to one’s eyes. We are pulling every 3DS from store shelves and recommend that everyone ceases use of their 3DS system immediately.”

    Nintendo of America (NOA) echoed the statements coming from Iwata. NOA President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime issued the following statement: “I want to personally apologize to all the customers who have lost their eyesight as a result of the 3DS system. Here at Nintendo, we pride ourselves on making safe, family-friendly products and we simply couldn’t allow the 3DS to remain on store shelves with so many at risk.”

    What’s more important is what this could mean for the company long term. At this point, it is still unknown whether or not Nintendo will choose to release a new handheld system. Although Nintendo is urging users to return their systems, there has been no statement as to whether or not Nintendo will issue all users a refund.

    Nintendo has set up a website for current 3DS owners, which has a link to print a free shipping label and instructions on how to mail the system back to Nintendo. The link for that website can be found here.

    One thing we can be certain of is that April 1, 2011 will go down as a dark day in Nintendo history or could be an April 1st joke.

    Does the Nyko Power Pak+ deliver on its promise?

    ARS Technica has reviewed the powerful replacement battery for the 3DS and they’re impressed.

    The most anticipated peripheral for the 3DS is undoubtedly the Power Pak+ from Nyko which purports to double the console’s meagre three or so hour battery life.

    The fine folks over at Ars Technica have put the device through its paces and are pretty happy with the results.

    They tested it on a system with every power-draining feature like screen brightness, 3D effect and sound cranked to the max and this is what they concluded:

    With the stock battery, you’d be lucky to get three hours out of these conditions.

    The Nyko battery lasted five hours and forty minutes. Well done! This was accomplished under punishing conditions; if you turn off WiFi, use headphones, turn power save mode on, and dial down the brightness a few notches, you suddenly have a system that’s ready for long flights or marathon playing sessions. For $20 this is a great addition to your system, even if the black coloring looks pretty goofy on the aquamarine 3DS.”

    The downsides of the battery are that it’ll add more weight and mass to your system and it’ll no longer be compatible with the default cradle. Despite these issues, the article still gave it a “Buy” verdict.

    You can find the full review, steps to installing the device and lots of lovely photographs here.

    After having a quick glance at the big online retailers it doesn’t look like the Power Pak+ has a European release date yet. Though its technically already out in the States (both with and without a functioning docking station) demand seems to be outstripping supply with Amazon, Target and Best Buy’s websites either out of stock or backordered. Hopefully Nyko will rectify this by getting more manufactured and sent to stores near you as soon as possible.

    3DS images “pop” student’s Eyeball

    3DS health scares just got real.

    3DS health scare stories took a sinister turn today, The Daily Mail reveals. Last night at approximately 19:35 GMT, foreign exchange student Peter Karzai was admitted to RUH hospital in Bath. The 22 year old was in tears, though he was not shedding as many tears as he should have been – one of his eyes had popped.

    “I couldn’t believe it!” sobbed Karzai. “I was innocently shooting my brother in the face in Face Raiders, when suddenly my eye started to feel strange. I pointed to my eye and said ‘this doesn’t feel right’. ‘That’s because it’s your left eye’ said my brother. And then… I heard a small ‘pop’ like… like maybe a very large Rice Crispy. But not one of the ones that snaps or crackles.” Surprisingly, Karzai wasn’t immediately aware of what had happened. “I said to my brother, ‘the 3D has stopped working’. And so my brother came over to watch the screen, and he said ‘no, the 3D is still working. I think it is because you now have only one eye’.”

    Karzai is devastated. For one thing, the problems he now experiences with depth perception mean that his career is ruined (he is the #2 ranked snooker player in his native Afghanistan). The accident has also led to ridicule from many that he considered to be his friends. As he has taken to wearing an eyepatch, he has already suffered the nickname ‘Peter the Pirate’. “I understand.” sighs Karzai. “My impressive beard only adds to the effect, not to mention the fact that I carry my pet parrot David with me everywhere on my shoulder. Also, I wish that I could afford a more convincing false leg.”

    At time of writing, doctors are unable to agree on exactly what happened, or why. “73% of men have only one eye that can deal with 3D images safely, which I think explains a lot.” says resident ophthalmologist at RUH Dr Dre. “Women experience a similar problem with their legs. If they run too fast, their feet fall off.” Professor Johnny B. Goode, however, lays the blame firmly at the door of the 3DS. “How on earth can you have 3D images without special glasses?” he asks. “It’s clearly black magic, which has had an adverse effect on this poor boy.”

    3DS Struggles to Eclipse Ye Olde PSP

    3DS Struggles to Eclipse Ye Olde PSP

    Sony’s PlayStatipn Portable pulls on the gloves in Japan and announces a sudden willingness to throw a few punches in the sales chart. Fancy.
    There’s no denying the ongoing popularity of the 3DS handheld, especially in Japan, but it would appear Sony’s long-serving PlayStation Portable (PSP) isn’t quite ready to give up the ghost.

    More pointedly, while the obvious appeal of Nintendo’s console has seen it topping the Japanese hardware chart since release, a resurgence of PSP sales mean that last week the 3DS only outsold Sony’s virgin foray into the mobile space by a few hundred units.

    In terms of core numbers, Andriasang reports that sales of the 3DS in Japan fell by 10,000 units week-on-week to 50,710, while sales of the stalwart PSP increased by 22,911 to 50,479.

    And the reason for the PSP’s sudden boost? Well, the folks over at CVG attribute it to the launch of Final Fantasy IV Complete Collection, which shot to the top of the country’s weekly software listings.

    The 3DS is maintaining a strong presence in the software chart, with Gundam: The 3D Battle sitting in third spot. Meanwhile, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask currently resides at sixth and Nintendogs + Cats at eighth.

    Whether it’s the first signs of stuttering interest or merely a software-inspired blip, the 3DS continues to sell well internationally after queues of expectant gamers recently rushed to meet the console in the United States and the United Kingdom.

    3DS is the most successful Nintendo launch in the UK

    Nintendo announces the opening 3DS sales figures for UK and Europe. Despite setting a new company record, it underperformed.

    We know that the 3DS’ UK launch went pretty well, what with the record breaking pre-orders and the healthy performance of 3DS software in this week’s charts. Today, Nintendo made it official just how well it went and believe it or not, it wasn’t all good news.

    It shifted 113,000 units over the launch weekend, which is still a strong start no matter which way you look at it. It ousted both the Wii and the DSi’s early release figures (106,000 and 90,000 units respectively) to narrowly become the fastest-selling Nintendo console in the UK.

    However, it failed to reach the predictions made by analysts and Nintendo themselves. Prior to launch, Nintendo UK’s marketing manager James Honeywell was confident that it would sell “comfortably over 150,000, if not more like 200,000”.

    The figure was also shy of the 140,000 confirmed pre-orders Nintendo had announced previous to launch day. MCV posits that the discrepancy may have occurred due to retailers buying more units than necessary in order to meet customer demand.

    The Playstation Portable still holds the crown for the fast-selling system in the UK with 185,000 units though if MCV is to be believed it retains it because of a technicality. Apparently this figure was recorded over a four day opening period instead of the 3DS’ two days. It doesn’t seem like a fair comparison to me but for this reason the PSP remains unbeaten.

    It was also confirmed that Nintendo’s new baby had sold 303,000 units across Europe. Whether this is inclusive of the UK’s figures is unclear. Though this is short of the Wii’s 325,000 opening weekend there, Nintendo has reaffirmed that the 3DS is the “fastest selling Nintendo handheld device over a launch weekend” in Europe.

    Super Mario from a First Person Camera (Now in 3D)

    The view from the plumber’s seat looks pretty cool, as one youtuber has discovered.

    Youtube user FreddieW has gotten in on the 3D craze, with a new 3D version of what a first-person Mario game would look like; and the results are pretty cool.

    The original video was uploaded March 17th, but just yesterday Freddie uploaded a version that pops out with 3D glasses. The idea of Mario in first person was pretty awesome, Freddie brings us through the first level of SuperMario from a different viewpoint and with a few adjustments made to make the game more like a first person shooter. As seen in this screenshot, he created an achievement system and used the original game as a map in the top left corner of the screen.

    Mario performs his vintage moves- jumping on goombas, shooting fireballs, busting blocks and collecting mushrooms like a pro. The detail is fantastic, with bricks falling at your feet and fireballs igniting the air. The question the video raises is, of course, will we see anything like this is Super Mario 3DS? The first person camera lends itself very well to 3D gaming, allowing the player to truly feel immersed in a world that used to feel so very flat…

    Perhaps if Mario moves into First-Person view, other classic games will follow. Can you imagine seeing the world through Donkey Kong’s eyes?

    What game would you like to see updated to include a first person camera?


    Resident Evil: Revelations confirmed for 2012

    Facebook post with concept art reveals the first true Resident Evil title for 3DS won’t be released until next year. Looking forward to delving into another grisly adventure against zombies, mutants, horrific voice acting and other monsters? Well, don’t hold your breath because Capcom has confirmed that Resident Evil: Revelations for 3DS won’t be released until 2012 at the earliest. The latest hint of a release date recently surfaced on the franchise’s official Facebook page where a Capcom employee posted up five moody pieces of concept art, with the tagline “from Resident Evil: Revelations (3DS, 2012)”. The artwork suggests that the finished Revelations will have a nice range of environments for players to timidly creed through, including an abandoned coastal shanty time, the wreckage of a cargo plane that has crashed in the mountains and what look like the ruined kitchens and corridors of a shiprwreck – complete with the bloody remains of the crew. Lovely. Revelations is one of the most anticipated 3DS titles, but in the meantime fans will have to make with equally popular Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D. The fully-fledged video game based on the RE4 and 5 bonus modes will be released for 3DS in June across Japan, the US and Europe. Earlier this week, Capcom confirmed that The Mercenaries would include a demo of Revelations. So that should keep you going for a bit.

    Is Monster Hunter coming to the 3DS?

    Do you believe the rumours or is this a very nasty (and late) April Fool’s joke? Recently, a number of websites have picked up upon rumours of a Monster Hunter 3DS. Is it true though I hear you ask? Well 3DS Buzz can’t quite confirm or deny it, but here is what we know (and it is all purely speculation) Last month Capcom were expected to announce Monster Hunter on March 13th according to some videogames sites, but unfortunately the Earthquake struck Japan and of course changed everything. Now rumours are circulating that Monster Hunter 3DS is expected to be announced at Capcom Captivate 2011 event, which starts April 6th. Last year at the event gamers all over the world saw the revealing of Marvel vs Capcom 3 and Okamiden. Will a Monster Hunter announcement be as big as the games announced last year? We think so. Is there any truth then you ask? Well never say never, Capcom are very high on the 3DS it would seem, with launch title Super Street Fighter IV and two Resident Evil titles to come Monster Hunter is certainly a possibility, and with its success on the PSP, there is no reason as to why it wouldn’t be as successful (if not more) on the 3DS. The only question for now is – Is Monster Hunter coming to the 3DS? What if it is true, then all kinds of questions are open for discussion – Brand New Title? PSP Port? New Monsters? Multiplayer? Street Pass connectivity? Let us all hope these rumours are true…

    Nintendogs + Cats is the first sequel to the 4th-best-selling console game of all time, Nintendogs. The game, which falls into the pet simulation genre, is one of the many games developed by Nintendo. It was a launch title for the Nintendo 3DS in all major regions. As was the case with the original, Nintendogs + Cats is available in 3 different versions: Toy Poodle and Friends, Golden Retriever and Friends, and and French Bulldog and Friends. All versions are identical except for the 9 breeds of dog initially available. All breeds can be unlocked through extended gameplay and/or StreetPass. The idea behind multiple version of the game is to recreate the feeling of choosing a puppy from a pet shop when buying the game to give the games better replay-ability.

    Changes from series

    Unlike its predecessor, pets are now shown on the top screen rather than the touch screen. A silhouette of the pet is displayed on the touch screen, which players can interact with while focusing on the 3D screen to allow full view of the pet without stylus obstructions. The 3DS cameras are now implemented into gameplay: if the player moves their face close to the internal camera, the pet might move closer and interact with the player via face recognition - for example, by attempting to lick the player's face. The game makes wide use of facial recognition. If a stranger shows his face to a dog, it might growl at them in an act of hostility as the face is unrecognised. Walking the dog in Nintendogs + Cats has also changed significantly; instead of having to draw and plan a route, players are free to explore the world, with only signs to recommend a possible path. Walks are no longer seen from a side-scrolling perspective, but from the point of view behind their dog. This allows for obstacles to walk the dog around. A present is awarded if the dog is successful in navigating the obstacle. AR cards that come with the 3DS console can be used in conjunction with the gameplay. The Nintendo 3DS's external, 3D cameras must be able to "see" the card for this to work. Once the 3DS has recognized the AR card, your dog will automatically be projected on the card. Through the 3DS's microphone, the player can make their dog on the AR card perform tricks. The game also makes use of the 3DS's pedometer. Putting the game into pedometer mode allows the player to take their dog for a walk while the console remains closed in sleep mode in. The number of steps are tracked. When the console is opened, a reward will be given. More useful rewards are given if the player has walked greater distances. The game introduces cats which behave differently to the dogs. Cats cannot be taken for walks or entered into competitions but can go out on their own and bring presents back.


    When first starting the game, players choose between one of nine different dog breeds, depending on which version of Nintendogs+Cats. Once the player has chosen his/her dog, the they are taken to a house and is given a mini-tutorial. Once the tutorial is finished, the player is free to do whatever he/she wants with their dog. In the house they can play with their pet by stocking it or using toys. The player can train dogs skills such as catching a flying disc or responding to spoken commands. These skills can be used to enter contests and win money. Another option is to explore the town by taking a walk with the dog. In the game, money is used to buy items from various shops, including home decor, clothing, toys. Money can also be used to buy a new pets. The player can care for up to three pets at a time, and can store up to three pets at the local Pet Hotel. The player's dog, will need constant attention, so if the player stays away from his/her dog for an extended period of time, the dog will get lonely and will suffer.

    Game Modes

    Although these aren't specifically classified as game modes, they are the different aspects of Nintendogs+Cats:

    Playing At Home

    The house is the place where most of the game is spent with his/her pets. At the house, the player can bond with the pets by grooming, feeding, playing, and just showering them with affection. This is the place where most of the buyable toys can be used including tennis balls and frisbies. It is also possible to simply watch pets interact with each other. The house is also the place to teach pets tricks to be used in the Obedience Competition.

    Walking The Dog

    When walking the dog, the player is able to change go to different areas when they come across a sign post indicating alternative areas. Areas to explore include downtown, the mountains, and the seaside. The player must clean up after their dog on the walk to keep the neighborhood clean. This means occasionally using the stylus to tap on little droppings the dog has left behind when walking. Players can also try and train their dog by tugging on the leash if the dog is behaving badly and giving treats for good behaviour. As mentioned before, sometimes the dogs finds old items, collecting enough of the right items allows them to be traded at the second-hand shop for toys. There will sometimes also be mini-challenges which involve walking the dog between cones without hitting them. If the player is successful in this mini-game, they will be awarded with a present at the end. Their are a variety of landmarks around town. A park is available to practice catching a disk with your dog. If the player wants to train their dog in lure coursing, another competition, they can go to the gym to practice. There's even a dog cafe; its purpose is to specifically provide gourmet dog food for the player's dog! while walking the dog, the player may come across other dog walkers, who will exchange tips while their dogs meet. If the dogs like each other, a play-date can be arranged. Using the 3DS's pedometer, the player can also earn hidden "presents" by walking around in real life; the more you walk, the further the player walks, the more valuable the reward given by the dog will be.


    Competitions provide the main income in Nintendog + Cats. Like in the DS version, there are three types of competition which which demonstrate how well the player's dog has been trained against other dogs. Each of these three competitions has different levels increasing in difficulty and reward. The next level of any one competition is unlocked once the player gets first place in the previous competition level. These are the three competitions:

    Flying-Disc Competition

    Taken from the previous iteration of the Nintendogs series, the Flying-Disc Competition has the player throwing a disc (or frisbee) and their dog catching it in a certain place and way. Scores are based on how far the disk went when it was caught, if the dog jumped when he/she caught it, and if it was caught in a bonus area. The winner is the competitor with the most points.

    Lure-Coursing Race

    The Lure-Coursing Race, new to Nintendogs+Cats, has the player moving a lure across a set track to lure their dog to the finish line. The player moves the lure by performing a circular motion on the 3DS's touch screen. The key to winning the Lure-Coursing Race is to move the lure at the perfect speed; if the lure is moved too quickly, the dog will become disinterested and will stop chasing the lure across the track. If the player moves the lure too slowly, their dog will have the chance to pounce on it, causing the other lured dogs to gain an advantage. The competitor who has their dog cross the finish line first - not necessarily the lure - will win the competition.

    Obedience Trial

    Obedience Trial, also new to Nintendogs+Cats, uses the 3DS's Augmented Reality cards as well as its microphone. Once an AR card is detected by the 3DS's camera, the player's dog will appear on the card (on the 3DS's screen). The object of this competition is to get the highest score possible in the allotted time. The faster the dog reacts and obeys to the player's verbal commands, the more points are earned. In order to master this event, it is important to practice at home.

    Wireless Features

    Although no local or Wifi-enabled wireless features are in the game Nintendogs + Cats, StreetPass is used. If the player StreetPasses another player with Nintendogs + Cats, on their next in-game walk, the player might meet the StreetPassed player's Mii, as well as his/her dog. The two players will be able to exchange presents, and their dogs can schedule a play date.


    Nine breeds of dogs are available to start, the breeds available depend on which of three versions of the game is purchased. It is possible to eventually unlock all 27 breeds in every edition of the game through StreetPass and/or extended single-player play. Although cats are not available at the start of the game, they can be unlocked through StreetPass or in single-player mode. Only three breeds of cats are available, and they are identical across all three versions of the game. The full list of starting dog breeds, by game, is as follows:

    Toy Poodle and Friends

    Toy Poodle
    Pembroke Welsh Corgi
    Mini Schnauzer
    Bull Terrier
    Labrador Retriever
    Shih Tzu
    Jack Russell
    French Bulldog and Friends

    French Bulldog
    Shetland Sheepdog
    Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
    Yorkshire Terrier
    German Shepherd
    Basset Hound
    Golden Retriever and Friends

    Shiba Inu
    Golden Retriever
    Mini Pinscher
    Great Dane
    Cocker Spaniel

    The first demonstration of Nintendogs + Cats was a non-playable demo E3 2010. The first playable version of the game was shown at a press event on October 27, 2010. Nintendo General Manager Shigeru Miyamoto has said that cats were included in this game because he bought a cat and wanted to make a game featuring them. Others speculate it was simply a logical progression of a profitable franchise.


    Famtisu published a review of Nintendogs + Cats giving it 38/40. They praised the game's visuals, pointing out that "the fur is realistic." They also praised the the wireless elements while Famitsu dismisses the idea that this is a game aimed at a younger audience by saying that it can "be enjoyed by anyone." IGN, on the other hand, has given the game a score of 7/10, praising the game for its "lasting appeal", but knocking it for being "too similar to the original". Metacritic has compiled all critics' review scores, and has given the game a mean score of 71/100, with most reviews saying the game is "good".

    Strange man microwaves his brand new 3DS

    No, really. Seriously. Look, there’s a video! It seems fair to assume that if you’re reading this, you now own a 3DS or wish that you did. A question for those of you who have yet to make the purchase: What will you do with your brand spanking new handheld once it’s all yours? The very first thing you’ll do, of course, is take it out of the box – just like the guy in the above video. Then you’ll probably open it up and turn it on – just like the guy in the above video. Then you’ll, er, stick it in a microwave at full power just like the guy in the above video? As reported over at CNET, the chap who does the dirty deed is “artist, innovator and inventor” (his words) Kenny Irwin. A better description, unkind people would say after watching the sequence in full, would be ‘mental case, rich kid and attention seeker’. Just in case you’re thinking this is some kind of perverse April Fools prank I’ve fallen for – it isn’t. A quick perusal of Irwin’s Youtube channel reveals that he’s gleefully done the same thing with newly released luxury electronics before, all in the name of his “Microwave Theater” (yes, I know, American spelling). Do not try this at home.

    Attention seeker or not, attention is certainly what he’s got, with the total views of his wasteful videos exceeding 14,000,000. That’s a lot of people who like watching Vandal Porn (a phrase I just invented, d’ya like it?). He’s even been on the tellybox, having previously appeared on the Conan O’Brien show. There’s no denying he has fans, and he’s obviously hoping that he has rich fans; the decimated 3DS is up on ebay for one cent shy of a thousand dollars (signed and sold by Irwin himself). Again, the unkind might suggest that the only person with less respect for the good money can do in the world will be the person who buys this… Love him or hate him, there’s no denying that Irwin has a sense of humour – as seen in the ebay listing. The nuked lump of electronics “comes with all accessories” and features a “Zero Megapixel Camera”. He answers one ebayer who calls him pathetic with (unedited): “Thankyou for asking. We strive for excellence when it comes to the fine art of professional microwaving creating fine art inside a giant five ton microwaving robot. We are glad you have questions and are hear to awnser other questions you may have with a smile.” [youtube=]
