The blue and red systems will have their colour schemes reversed. The old look systems have a black front with red or blue on the sides. The new look systems will instead have the reverse, with red or blue on the front and black on the sides.

The new color-swapped Nintendo 2DS systems will start to appear in stores starting in November.

Splat the Difference | REVIEW

Posted on October 6, 2016 by Jason Nason

There are a lot of find the difference games out there, with tons of them for free games in the app stores. To be honest I haven’t played too many of them as they aren’t really my cup of tea. Sure they’re simple in practice, but I’ve often looked at a title shot and moved on. Heck, there are times when a game title and visuals looked rather interesting and it was the revelation that the whole game was spot the difference and I was too annoyed to even look any further.

It’s refreshing that not only does Lightwood Games embrace the genre but also takes a cute little play on the whole genre in their title. And with the recent success of Nintendo’s Splatoon series, calling the game Splat the Difference makes one really connect the game to Nintendo.

Psst. Don’t forget about those Nintendo DSi points if you still have any.

Nintendo issued another reminder about the closure the Nintendo DSi Shop in 2017. The digital game service was the predecessor to the Nintendo eShop and has been available on the Nintendo DSi and Nintendo DSi XL systems since 2009.

You’ll still have until March 31st, 2017 to redeem those points to purchase content in the Nintendo DSi Shop. The ability to re-download Nintendo DSiWare games will stop at some point, but details on just when that will happen aren’t clear at the moment.
