Nintendo has finally released the YouTube application for the 3DS. You can download it in both North America and Europe. It’ll take up 113 blocks on your device. Go and download it!
Nintendo has lowered the price of four Mario titles on the eShop for the 3DS. These are the games along with their reduced prices:
- Super Mario Bros. – $3.49 (was $4.99)
- Super Mario Bros. 2 – $3.49 (was $4.99)
- Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins – $2.79 (was $3.99)
- Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move – $6.99 (was $9.99)
If you’ve been interested in picking up the games, now may be a good time to do that. (And from someone who may never celebrate Thanksgiving, Happy Thanksgiving!)
If you visit the Louvre in Paris, you’re able to use a 3DS as your handheld guide fro the museum. This guide contains tours and commentary and other things to make your visit more educational (while still being able to go at your own pace).
Maybe you can’t make it to the Louvre though. If that’s the case, you’ll be able to download this guide in North America for $19.99 from December 2nd.
You can find a new batch of screenshots from Kirby Triple Deluxe after the break.
Masahiro Sakurai is the director of Smash Bros. which means it’s his job to maintain a bird’s eye view of the project and keep it moving in a consistent direction. He’s not afraid to get his hands dirty in the trenches though.
Here’s what he shared in a recent interview with Polygon:
In all previous Smash Bros. games, I’ve entered in all the data for fighter skills and hitboxes by myself, and it’s quite nearly that way with this game too. I’ve thought about leaving this work to others and I’ve actually tried it once or twice, but it hasn’t worked out. I don’t want to release an incomplete game, and I want everything to be as successful as possible, but it results in a massive amount of work for me.
But there are clear reasons for doing this:
Characters’ in-game balance and features are something that I’m thinking about from the start while coming up with motions. If I left that to someone else midway, that’d make things more difficult. It’s faster and more accurate to just input the numbers myself than try to explain it in words to somebody.
And while it sounds gruelling, I’m sure we’ll see the positive effects in the final product. Nice work, Sakurai.
There’s more screenshots from Dragon Quest Monsters 2 that you can check out after the break. They’re not too interesting if you don’t understand Japanese but they’re better than nothing.
Two Tribes has confirmed that EDGE is coming to the 3DS. A port of the Wii U version is in the works and two screenshots can be found after the break. You can also check out a trailer to see what the game’s about.
This is sort of “well, duh” news story, but Nintendo of America has shared an infographic showing just how fast Pokemon X and Pokemon Y sold compared to other best-selling 3DS games. They certainly have reasons to gloat.
You can check out the full image after the break.
If you want to spoil The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds for yourself, there’s a video after the break that shows off every single boss battle in the game. Personally though, I won’t be watching it.
Mario Party: Island Tour is now available and there’s ninety minutes of footage after the break to help you decide whether or not you want to buy it. You may also want to read IGN’s review, since this is what they have to say:
[The] single-player campaign is laughably bad, and the ambitious, content-rich multiplayer options and unique game boards are ultimately dragged down by mostly boring minigames and unfortunate system-jerking motion control. A group of friends might only have fleeting good times with this collection.
