Nintendo eShop

Nintendo has confirmed that the eShop on the 3DS and Wii U will go down for maintenance on March 13th at 1pm PST. And, of course, “During the extended maintenance, parts of the affected services may be intermittently unavailable.”

So when the eShop goes down, don’t panic. The world’s not ending. Have a little patience and all will be right in the world soon enough.

Mario Golf World tour

Ahead of its release in early May, Amazon has dropped the price of Mario Golf: World Tour. At the moment, you’re able to preorder the game for just $29.99, which is a savings of $10 (or 25%). If you’re planning to pick up the game anyway, I can’t imagine you’ll find a better deal.

IronFall 1

IronFall is a third-person shooter for the 3DS that, based on what we’ve seen, look quite compelling. And luckily,  the developers have since confirmed that “a gameplay video will be released before April arrives.”

The AI system has also been apparently rebuilt from the ground up, so it should be interesting to see the results of that.

Miiverse 3DS 2

Nintendo has released a minor update for Miiverse on the 3DS and Wii U that adds ”a feature that lets you filter a community’s popular posts by date.” And, for clarity, “the date displayed is when the posts were popular, rather than when they were made.”

A simple addition, perhaps, but a useful one.

Yoshi's New Island Data

When you launch Yoshi’s New Island for the first time, the following message appears:

Share gameplay data with Nintendo? We will use this info to help future games.

There’s no specification of what data will be collected though or how it will be used. But at the same time, software companies have been doing this sort of collection for years so I don’t think there’s a worry about this being some grand NSA scheme.

I’m more surprised at how surprised other blogs seem to be about this.
