Rayman Origins is getting the 3D treatment, and is all set to feature Streetpass support, which will allow you to trade and share information like leaderboard times and scores with your friends.

With the Vita realease in just over a month, Origins is set to release on just about every platform imaginable – which is always a good thing, given how under-looked this amazing platformer really is. Read more… »

Gamer Limit Review: VVVVVV 3D
By: | January 12th, 2012

VVVVVV is a PC game that goes by many names. V6, V, “Spikes”; whatever you call it, odds are you’ll replace it’s moniker with a host of obscenities by the time you’re ten minutes in. Make no mistake: V is a hard game, despite the fact that it’s possible to beat in under thirty minutes – it’s also one of the best platformers I’ve ever played.

But is the 3DS version enough to warrant a double-dip? Read on to find out. Read more… »

Officer Wagon has a big problem – a gang of sexy criminals have busted out of jail, and it’s up to her and her alone to put them behind bars again. Over sixteen levels, Wagon will sprint, leap, and blast her way through various obstacles and enemies to capture five fleety jailbirds per level.

Although she does have a gun, the game is primarily puzzle based (like Mighty Flip Champs) – but is it exciting enough to warrant a $5.99 price tag? Read more… »

Let’s cut to the chase: you know those 10 new nifty Gameboy Advance Ambassador games you just bagged on your 3DS? There’s a trick to changing the resolution and shrinking the picture. Are you ready for the secret? Grab your notepad, because this one’s time consuming: hold select when your GBA game starts. There you go – your resolution is now the original size!

A lot of sources are reporting that they find the new mode “less ugly”, but personally, I’m used to the screen-stretching effect, and I couldn’t care less either way (but hey, the article gave me an excuse to post a Minish Cap picture, so I can’t really go wrong here).

The 3DS has been hit with more criticism than pretty much any system in recent memory. A lack of launch games along with the lack of enthusiasm for the third dimension has made it hard for the Big N to push units.

Thankfully for them, Mario has come along to save the day. Make no mistake – 3D Land is a system seller. Read more… »

Nintendo of America has just confirmed release dates for two of the most exciting 3DS releases of the year. Players will be able to take to the skies in a new Tanooki suit for the first time in twenty years on November 13 in Super Mario 3D Land. Just in time for the holidays, Mario Kart 7 will be releasing a few short weeks later on December 4.

It looks like things are looking up for Nintendo’s portable with Luigi’s Mansion 2 and Kid Icarus: Uprising, and Star Fox 64 3D in the pipeline. The recent price cut and this strong first-party holiday line up surely will help. Now hopefully third parties are willing to do their part. What upcoming 3DS title are you most excited for?

[Update: Target has followed Walmart's lead and begun selling the 3DS at $170 early.]

Stop what you’re doing, go to Walmart and buy a 3DS. While Nintendo’s portable console will be receiving an official $80 price cut this Friday, Walmart has jumped the gun and started selling them for $170 early. Apparently, the evil big box isn’t only keen on killing off small businesses in your town, but beating its competitors to the punch.

Fearing the wrath of scorned early adopters, Nintendo is offering 20 free downloadable games to 3DS owners who connect to the eShop by August 12th.  So if you’re planning on picking a 3DS up anyway, why not do it before Friday at the attractive new price point and nab yourself 10 free Gameboy Advance titles in addition to 10 free NES ones?

Last week’s update featured the comparatively awesome offering of Kirby’s Dream Land and Final Fantasy III. It left me wondering if Nintendo was finally going to start getting its act together. Would next week’s update bring Metroid II, Pokemon Red, or even Sonic Chaos? Nope. The disappointment continues.

Hit the jump for this week’s list of games with funny names.

It’s Thursday and you know what that means, yet another offering of downloadable titles from Nintendo. While they’re still no where near competing on the level of Microsoft and Sony in the online department, with Kirby and Final Fantasy titles in the mix, this week’s offering is an easier pill to swallow than the last.

We posted our review for Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D earlier this week. Chris Carter thought the game was decent, but had some gripes. One of which was the fact that “save files are permanently ingrained onto your game’s cartridge”. Capcom’s actions in this regard have turned out to be highly controversial and caused quite a stir on the internet, believing this is the latest method to kill the used game market. In backlash, fans have review-bombed the title, leaving it with a rating of 1.5/5 on Amazon.

Resident Evil is at it again – and this time, in 3D. Mercs 3D features eight characters across the Resident Evil universe, in an all out time attack brawl, entirely enclosed within the “Mercenaries” mini-game made popular by Resident Evil 4 and 5.

Considering the pedigree, many gamers are extremely skeptical of Merc’s value, priced at a pretty steep $40. So is Mercs 3D a cash grab, or a full fledged retail game? Well, it’s a little bit of both. Read more… »

Were you hoping that the arrival of the 3DS eShop would mean exciting things for Nintendo’s downloadble services? Well, that won’t be happening — at least not this week.  The most exciting title of the week features Chimaki from Guilty Gear 2 in a “quirky” platformer called Pro Jumper! Guilty Gear Tangent. It could be alright.

Hit the jump for the rest of this weeks titles, or not. Better luck next week, Nintendo.
