3DS Focused Nintendo Direct Scheduled for Tomorrow

Posted on November 12, 2013 by Rae Michelle Richards

Everyone might be talking about the impending release of the PlayStation 4 but Nintendo hasn’t forgotten their handheld’s devoted following with the announcement of a Nintendo Direct scheduled for tomorrow. Both Nintendo of America and Nintendo Europe will be simultaneously broadcasting this latest game focused showcase.

Some games that may be highlighted during tomorrow’s stream: Mario Gold 3DS, Bravely Default Fairy, Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy and perhaps the upcoming Mario Kart 3DS. If Nintendo really wants to shake away some coverage from Microsoft and Sony’s upcoming console launches maybe they should throw in a brief teaser for Smash Bros for WiiU and 3DS.

You’ll be able to catch the Nintendo Direct through this link at 8 A.M PST!

3DS Circle Pad Goes XL

Posted on September 20, 2012 by Jason Bassett

In a move that’s not surprising in the least, Nintendo looks as though they have announced a brand new Circle Pad Pro for the Nintendo 3DS XL. Information is scarce, there is no release date or price (sound familiar?), but there is a mock up of how the add-on will look like.

Nintendo introduced the Nintendo 3DS Circle Pad Pro back in 2011 and was released in February in 2012 Stateside. The new model seems not much removed from it’s predecessor, which in my mind, is a good thing. Take a look at the screen below.
