The official Nintendo of America Twitter account recently dropped the release date for Pokémon Picross: December 3.
The free-to-play puzzle game has more than 300 puzzles to solve and a dozen different pokémon skills to help you out.
There is a paid element to the game in the form of Picrites, magic stones that unlock new areas and can be used to aid in the recovery of your pokémon’s skills. Fortunately, Picrites can also be earned for free through regular gameplay.

It’s Thanksgiving in the U.S. today. Let’s try to ignore the fact that the holiday has just become Black Friday’s prologue at this point and pretend that it’s still about being thankful for the past year!
In any case, it’s still an excuse to stuff your face full of food guilt-free. So, have a good one!StevenNo comments
Everything we’ve seen so far of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD has shown the game’s HUD using Wii U GamePad controls, but according to a listing for the game on the official Swedish Nintendo site, it will also support the Wii Remote and Nunchuk control scheme from the original Wii release.
If true, it will be interesting to see if the Wii U port will also mirror the game to make Link right-handed.No comments
Vblank Entertainment founder Brian Provinciano confirmed to Nintendo Life that the company is planning on bringing Shakedown Hawaii, the 16-bit-inspired sequel to Retro City Rampage, to the 3DS and possibly other Nintendo systems, including the NX.
“I’m currently targeting 3DS, but other Nintendo platforms are possible. I’m leaving the final decision until closer to launch since I’m not sure when the NX will come out. As the game is closer to completion and more is known about the NX, I’ll be able to better make the decision.”
The PS4 and Vita version of the game will be playable at Sony’s “PlayStation Experience” early next month, but a release date has not yet been announced.

If you’re planning to do some shopping this Black Friday weekend, you might want to consider bringing your 3DS along because November 26 to November 29 is going to be a National StreetPass Weekend in North America.
It’s a chance to rack up some StreetPass tags from people all over the world at various Nintendo Zone hotspots.

[Update: Apparently, Wii U GamePads have been available for purchase in Japan since 2012]
Wii U owners in Japan can now buy standalone GamePads for ¥13,824 yen (≈$112) in Nintendo’s online store.
The Wii U can only support one GamePad at a time. While Nintendo did say it was technically possible for the Wii U to support two GamePads before the system launched, that feature never actually came to fruition.
The GamePads are also region-locked, so don’t plan on importing unless you have a Japanese Wii U.
