Four Swords Anniversary

As a Nintendo fan goes, I have to say I’m probably not quite as dedicated as some others out there.  Indeed, with my constantly changing interests, general lack of money and tendency to buy very few games a  year in general, there are actually quite a few top Nintendo classics I completely missed out on back in the days of their release.  So here’s my list, a list of Nintendo classics that I only got to enjoy through the eShop and later rereleases


Sonic the Hedgehog Redesign is Here!

Also known as Sonic Boom (yes really), Sega’s new redesign for the Sonic the Hedgehog series has now been shown with a game announced for the foreseeable future.  And oh boy are some Sonic fans probably not going to like the end result…

Basically, they’ve aged up Sonic and the other characters and made them look like strange teen style cartoon characters in a way to make the new tie in cartoon show seem all different and interesting.  Just watch the video and see the ‘unusual’ change in the full post!


Resident Evil’s Composer is a Fraud?

Well, this is certainly unexpected news.  Apparently, Resident Evil composer Mamoru Samuragochi has admitted that someone else has been writing his music for the last ten years or so. So I guess he’s basically the Japanese composer version of Milli Vanilli or whoever they were, someone who takes responsibility for the works of others and has been getting a ton of undue credit in recent years.


Oh Hey, Nintendo of Canada’s Blatantly Trying to Promote DK Tropical Freeze!

They’re talking a lot about a mysterious box they supposedly found in the snow near their location, but come on.  Anyone with half a brain can tell that this is a really obvious ‘viral marketing’ stunt for Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze.

Keep reading to see the box and why I’m so confident about it’s role…


An Update on Nintendo 3DS Daily and Our Network…

Nin3DSUncategorizedLeave a comment

As you may have noticed in recent weeks, activity here on both the Nintendo 3DS Daily site and Nintendo 3DS Community forums has been kind of low.   But while some of this is due to me having an actual job of sorts nowadays and only about four hours worth of free time per day, there’s actually another reason the sites have been a bit inactive recently.

Basically, I’m trying to both relaunch Super Smash Bros 4 News (http://supersmashbros4.com) and a new site based on the Wario series.  And as you can guess, the website design/development takes away a significant amount of my remaining time.

DK Commercial

Like the official US TV commercial for the game (it’s better than you’d ever expect), a video of the polar bear boss fight and even the first ever video in which you can hear this game’s remix of Stickerbrush Symphony from Donkey Kong Country 2!  So if you want to see awesome TV commercials, watch footage of one of the later worlds and see mean looking bears get beaten up in an argument over ice cream, keep reading this news post!

Sonic Poster

That’s according to this poster at the Nuremberg Toy Fair anyway, which lists the game alongside existing ones like Sonic Lost World and Mario and Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games as coming in the near future.

It’s also multiplatform.  So in other words, it’s coming to the Wii U, PS4 and Xbox One.  Keep reading to see the evidence for yourself and some other random thoughts on this matter!


How’s the Mario & Luigi Series Gonna work on Wii U’s Virtual Console?

Nin3DSNintendo Articles8 comments so far


Recently at Nintendo’s Financial Briefing, Satoru Iwata mentioned that Nintendo had overcome the technical limitations stopping them releasing DS games on the Wii U’s Virtual Console, saying that such games would be available sometime soon.  But while to a degree this sounds like a great idea, there’s one minor thing that’s now been bugging me about the concept.

Namely, how the hell is the Mario & Luigi series gonna work on such a service?
