Nintendo Filed the New 3DS and New 3DS XL with the FCC

March 24th, 2015 | Category: Uncategorized

New 3DS Testing

The FCC’s confidentiality period on Nintendo’s filings for the New 3DS recently expired, revealing that the company actually filed for both the XL and non-XL models in North America. This doesn’t necessarily confirm that Nintendo is going to bring over the smaller New 3DS, but it does suggest that the company originally had plans to release both versions in North America before opting to launch with just the XL.

Worth mentioning is that, among the many documents submitted to the FCC, was a complete English instruction manual for the smaller New 3DS that clearly references Nintendo’s North American facilities, some exploded view pictures of the handheld’s internals and images of weird-colored test New 3DSes.

Inazuma Eleven Appears and Disappears from Nintendo of America’s Release Calendar

January 08th, 2014 | Category: Uncategorized

Inazuma Eleven GO 3

Level-5’s 3DS soccer RPG Inazuma Eleven recently showed up on Nintendo’s software calendar as a Q1 2014 release, but it seems to have disappeared and searching for the title on Nintendo.com brings up zero results.

Shortly after the game’s listing appeared, Nintendo Everything got in touch with Nintendo. According to a company representative, “What is listed on the website is the most current info we have.”

With any trace of the game completely gone from Nintendo’s site and no real announcement of the game prior to its mysterious listing, we can only assume that it was an error.

Who knows? Maybe we’ll hear something about Inazuma Eleven during a future Nintendo Direct.

Zelda ALBW Cover NA Zelda ALBW Cover NA reverse

The North American box art for The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is still shiny and gold, but it doesn’t come with the alternate full-color cover on the other side of the insert like the European release.

If you really want that colored picture of the resting Master Sword, Club Nintendo does have it for 500 Coins as part of an A Link Between Worlds three-poster set.

Wii Discontinuation Extends to Europe, But Not North America

October 24th, 2013 | Category: Uncategorized

Wii Family Edition

Now that production of the Wii has ended in Japan, the question is “What does this mean for the console in other territories?”

Nintendo UK representatives speaking to MCV revealed that the Wii supplies in Europe will not be replenished.

“Wii imports to Europe have been discontinued. However, there are still a variety of options for consumers to enjoy Wii games and the Wii gameplay experience.

“Wii U, which is Nintendo’s latest home console, is backwards compatible with nearly all existing Wii games and accessories, so you can enjoy a vast library of disc-based and downloadable Wii games and Wii gameplay experiences when you switch to Wii Mode on Wii U.

“Wii Mini is also now available across Europe offering Wii gameplay experiences at a great value. Wii Mini puts the focus squarely on games with over 1200 existing disc-based Wii titles to choose from.”

As for North America, Nintendo of America representatives told GameSpot that their Wii supplies would not be affected by the announcement.

“The announcement that the Wii console has been discontinued is specific to Japan. There is no change in the status of Wii in the United States, and it is available for purchase this holiday season.”
