Category: Uncategorized

It’s hard to believe that Nintendo’s been around for well over a century, yet here they are turning 125 years old today.

The company’s seen quite a few changes since its start in 1889 as a producer of Hanafuda cards, venturing into different business realms – taxis, love hotels, toys and more – before becoming the iconic gaming giant it is today.

Happy birthday, Nintendo! We hope you have continued success in the years to come.

As a bit of an incentive to pick up the game early, first-print copies of Final Fantasy Explorers in Japan will come with a download code for the original Final Fantasy. However, this version will feature updated visuals and include 3D support.

Final Fantasy Explorers comes out on December 18 in Japan.

A demo, titled Final Fantasy Explorers Light, was also announced. It will take players through the opening sections of the game in single- and online multiplayer. No date was given for the demo’s launch.

Super Smash Bros. Director Explains Why The Ice Climbers Aren’t in the 3DS/Wii U Versions

Category: Uncategorized

Ice Climbers

In his bi-weekly article in Famitsu, Super Smash Bros. series director Masahiro Sakurai revealed that there were plans to have the Ice Climbers return for Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

The development team got the duo to run in the Wii U version, but ran into technical problems when trying to bring them to the 3DS.

In combination with the fact that Popo and Nana haven’t exactly been relevant – they haven’t starred in a game since the original Ice Climber from 1985 – they weren’t considered as high a priority as other characters, ultimately leading to the two being dropped entirely.

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Exploit Allows Any Image to Be Posted on Miiverse

Category: Uncategorized

Miiverse Exploit Reggie

3DS users have found a way use a non-updated copy of Mario & Luigi: Dream Team to post screenshots of anything they want on Miiverse, including images from the 3DS Internet Browser.

Needless to say, there’s been a flood of not safe for work content rolling into the Dream Team community page. Most of it has already been taken down by Nintendo’s moderators and screenshot posting has been disabled until further notice.

Nintendo hasn’t issued an official statement on the exploit or plans on how to deal with it.

There are only two games coming out this week, and they’re both for the 3DS: Cooking Mama 5: Bon Appetit! and Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call.

I can’t be the only one still bothered by the fact that the “Theater” part of the word “Theatrhythm” doesn’t have the second “E,” right?
