Space Lift Dangers Panic! is a quick little arcade game on the Nintendo 3DS eShop that can be played in quick five minute bursts, but the repetitive gameplay also makes the game makes the game hard to play for more than ten minutes at a time.
Let’s face it, playing games on a portable game system comes in two kinds. One is the game that you sit in the dark at home and marathon through while the other is the kind where you whip out your system and play for just a few minutes. Space Lift Danger Panic! is the latter.
The game is really easy to pick up and play, and despite the epic intro text for the game, the game is very basic. It is exactly what the game designers bill it as, the ultimate retro-arcade challenge.Posted In: 3DS, Nintendo Tags: Eshop, Nintendo 3DS, review, Springloaded

Wii U established new benchmarks for hardware and software sales in a single month in December. This helped total hardware and software sales in 2014 increase by more than 29 percent and more than 75 percent, respectively, over sales in 2013.
Nintendo 3DS also had a strong December, including its largest month ever for first-party software sales. This was primarily fueled by Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, which has already surpassed 2 million combined physical and digital units sold in a little more than three months, and Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, which have combined to sell over 2.6 million physical and digital units in their first six weeks.Posted in: Nintendo Tags: Nintendo, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo Wii U

Can you believe that the Mario Party series is about to celebrate its tenth instalment? Mario and friends just keep finding reasons to throw elaborate board game themed parties and this time the excitement is coming to the Nintendo WiiU. During this morning’s Nintendo Direct we learned several new details about the game as well as its North American release date – March 20th 2015.
Mario Party 10 will include over 70 different mini-games, support for a brand new line of amiibo figures based off of classic Super Mario characters, new game boards based on your favourite characters will be available in MP10 and an all new mode called “Bowser Party”. Personally I think Bowser Party sounds the most interesting as it allows one player to play against everyone else using the WiiU game pad. Sure Mario’s nemesis has long annoyed us as an NPC on the game board in previous Mario Party titles but now you can ruin friendships by stealing their power stars!

The rest of the world received Nintendo’s most recent iteration of their flagship handheld the New Nintendo 3DS last fall and now the console maker has taken the wraps off of their North American launch plans. The New Nintendo 3DS XL will be available in Canada and the United States on February 13th for a suggested retail price of $229.99 CDN. If you’ve been waiting to upgrade your 3DS now might just be the right time as apparently pre-orders are selling out fast.
What new features await owners of this new handheld? New 3DS XL adds two additional shoulder buttons, a second analogue stick, in the form of the C-Stick (remember those from the GameCube?), a faster processor and Near Field Communication (NFC) support for the Nintendo Amiibo line of figures. A firmware update set to be released alongside the new console will enable Amiibo support. If you own a copy of Super Smash Bros for Nintendo 3DS that game is significantly improved on the new hardware. Not only does the NN3DS boot up Smash Bros much faster but you can also execute smash attacks instantly using the C-Stick.
We’ll have more on the New Nintendo 3DS as the North American launch date approaches. Check out the trailer for the hardware after the jump.Posted in: News, Nintendo Tags: Announcement, Hardware, New 3DS, Nintendo, Nintendo Direct
