The 27th of January to be exact. That is when the Circle Pad Pro will be released in Europe which also is the day that Resident Evil: Revelations is set for release. The game needs the add-on so it will be a perfect time to pick up both. Expect a date for the other regions soon.
Update: Nintendo have just clarified that Luigi’s Mansion 2 is one player only and have apologized for the error on their UK page.
Nintendo UK has confirmed two player multiplayer for Luigi’s Mansion 2 on their official page for the game. We don’t know if it will be over Wi-Fi connectivity or local play and what this is all involves, but stay tuned for the latest.
Update: It’s confirmed that Europe and Australia are also included in the 3DS update delay. Nintendo has apologized for the inconvenience and unfortunately we have yet another week to wait.
Nintendo has announced that the upcoming firmware update scheduled for release at the end of November has been delayed all the way up to December 8 in North America and Japan. Europe and Australia have not been included in the delay yet but expect it to happen as another 3DS update is still being waited for.
Nintendo has confirmed about the new 3DS colour for North America but instead of it being called Metallic Rose as reported, it is actually referred to as Pearl Pink. Toys R US made a little blunder there but all is cleared up. You can pick up the new bundle which includes Nintendogs+ Cats for $169.99 starting from December 4. I’m sure a lot of you will be picking up Mario Kart 7 on that day though.
Finally Nintendo’s sales are heading in the right direction and the Nintendo 3DS has surpassed the DS first year sales in North America. Both Super Mario 3D Land and Zelda: Skyward have set records for their franchises and you can read all about the success after the break.
Update: The only way I can get the video to work is if you click on the link after the jump.
Nintendo America have just recently created their own very special Zelda designed room. You can check out the video showing how they made it after the jump.
Even though Sony denies that they take ideas from Nintendo, this could still be considered as stealing if it turns out to be true. Reports are spreading around the gaming community that Sony is developing a Smash Bros clonelike game which may release for the Playstation 4. This info is still just a rumour though as Sony have claimed they are doing none of the sort. If this happens I will be wondering what type of player roster would be put up as I can think of none better than the SSB Brawl list. Only the geniuses at Nintendo could think of a great series like Super Smash Bros before anyone else.
We haven’t seen much of the Mario Kart 7 online play but as of today there has been 4 minutes worth of footage released. Also I have uncovered some footage of the battle courses that will appear in this awesome game. You can check out both videos after the break.
Some high quality resolution pics have been shared online showing the new 25th anniversary Zelda 3DS console. Check them out after the jump.
A scan from Toys R Us in America shows that the new Rose Metallic 3DS is available to purchase as part of a bundle. The pack includes Nintendogs+ Cats and as a special treat if you buy the bundle from Toys R Us, you will also receive a $40 gift card and a Nintendo character bobble head stylus. Pretty neat I reckon.
