This morning, Nintendo announced a brand new version of the Nintendo 3DS, the "New Nintendo 3DS" (...Nintendo's skill at naming their hardware never ceases to amaze). Contrary to what the name might imply, this looks to be more than just another version of the 3DS we know and love today; rather, this new device will have superior hardware and processing power, new abilities and buttons, a recofigured button layout, and even a second Slider Pad built in! Makes you wonder: how could these improvements and additions be used in the next handheld Zelda title? Join the Daily Debate!

As if the two Super Smash Bros. 3DS commercials weren't enough, Nintendo has also released a five minute long introduction video for the Japanese 3DS version of the game. Many of the modes and concepts we have discussed in the past are the main focus, but the video gives a clear visual understanding into how those concepts will be put into action. Even without understanding the language, you should be able to pick up a general idea of what is being discussed...

This morning has been full of news regarding the 3DS. Everything from an upgraded 3DS to new Smash Bros. character reveals in Shulk and Ganondorf (accidentally) has made news today. On top of it all, the official YouTube for Nintendo of Japan has uploaded two new 30 second trailers for Super Smash Bros. 3DS. The video highlights the characters that have been revealed to this point using a comic strip styling to add to the chaos that the game promises fans. While we have seen...

We've known ever since the initial leak and finally video evidence that Ganondorf is coming back to Smash, but now we have something from Nintendo themselves on the matter. Ganondorf snuck his way into the Nintendo Direct this morning through a still image taken during a Smash event. You have to look really close, but he is the one located in the tiny circle next to Pikachu. If there was still folks doubting his inclusion because they refused to believe the leaks, no need to deny it anymore. Ganondorf is, in fact, coming back...

If this rumor turns out to be true, the New 3DS is, for all intents and purposes, a brand new console in the 3DS line. I almost liken it to the continual advancement of the original Game Boy line, except happening at a much quicker pace. The New 3DS is everything the original 3DS was... and then some. This new rumor comes from the folks over at 3Dbrew. They break down system updates and such for technical details, and this time they discovered a significant bump in RAM via the new device...

Fans everywhere have been wondering since the New 3DS was announced if DS games would be playable, as fear was dripping in that they wouldn't be. As it turns out, this likely isn't the case. While all we know about this comes from a Q and A session in Japan, it seems that DS games will be supported, while GBA games will not. No surprise on the latter, given that GBA game support has been gone since the DSi days...

This holiday season is proving that it is a good time to be a Nintendo fan. We have already covered a lot of great stuff this morning that was revealed during the Japan 3DS Direct, but there is still more to be said. The new models of the 3DS and 3DS LL/XL have caused an uproar with the inclusion of new controls and improved 3D, but the hardware is not the only thing being improved. System customization is getting a boost with an all new theme system for Nintendo's handheld featuring...

What a morning, huh? A surprise Japanese Nintendo Direct decided to drop a ton of bombshells this morning. While not all of them are 100% relevant to us, certainly the fact they are releasing a brand new 3DS model is. Specifically because this model has a faster CPU—so fast it can actually run Xenoblade Chronicles. This is the first time I think Nintendo hasn't completely replaced a line of handhelds yet has released a more powerful version, which is will obviously get games the other 3DS units cannot play. Of course, the increased CPU power isn't the only new addition...

This morning, in an early Nintendo Direct presentation, many interesting game details were revealed, but one of the more interesting bits is that Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS will be getting...

Well, Sakurai has revealed even more details about Shulk and how his moves will work. After this morning's reveal, he posted on Miiverse regarding the newcomer's fighting abilities. It seems that he will have two different fighting modes: one with his Monado activated, and one using the Monado arts. The Monado activated gives him a longer range sword attack. However, Sakurai points out that the Monado arts are what is most interesting about Shulk because there are five different arts he can use...
