Sonic 2 3D Coming To Nintendo 3DS Next Month

Here’s More Details For The Legend Of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes Coming October 23rd

In just over three weeks, form a legendary trio with your friends and tackle dungeons and boss battles together in The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, coming to Nintendo 3DS family systems on 23rd October. Presented in the same top-down style as the critically-acclaimed The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, prepare to solve inventive puzzles as a team and kit out Link in a range of outfits to enable new abilities that enhance your adventure.

In the Kingdom of Hytopia, a fashion-obsessed realm where sartorial elegance is celebrated, an evil witch has placed a mysterious curse upon Princess Styla, casting the realm into disarray. With citizens calling for the return of a legendary trio of “Totem Heroes” to protect them, and King Tuft offering a unique reward for whosoever lifts the curse, venture into the Drablands to hunt down the witch and restore peace and stylishness to the land.

Via online or local multiplayer, buddy up with two similarly heroic friends and co-operatively solve puzzles in environments ranging from lava-strewn volcanoes to icy caverns. In online play, you can also choose to play alongside unknown heroes not on your friend list. Only by working as a team will you be able to progress through the various hazards lying in wait, but for those who master an area, bonus challenges can be unlocked for access to more valuable rewards. In order to communicate with friends during gameplay, you can send instructions using in-game emoticons, such as asking for their urgent assistance in taking down an enemy, or even in helping form a Totem, a new gameplay mechanic whereby all three Links can stack up on top of one another, making it possible to reach new locations.

Solo adventurers can choose to take on the perils of the Drablands in single-player format, equipped with a pair of replica Link figures called “doppels” that come to life on command, allowing you to control each one in turn. However, with Download Play functionality, players can always link up with two other Nintendo 3DS system-owning friends to take on the action, even if they don’t have a copy of the game.

To fit the fashion-focused world of Hytopia, meanwhile, collecting in-game materials lets you order stylish outfits at Madame Couture’s shop for Link to wear, with each one giving special abilities to help tackle the action. While fans of The Legend of Zelda series will recognise certain pieces, such as a “Goron Garb” outfit that allows you to swim in lava, or a “Zora Costume” that lets you swim with greater speed, with 36 outfits to acquire, you can experiment with different looks in order to best tackle each of the 32 stages that lie in wait.

Finally, to share your great acts of teamwork and skill with others, secure a camera from the Photo Bro character managing the in-game Miiverse Gallery and snap away whilst out exploring the wilds of the Drablands. As well as posting these snaps to Miiverse, you can even unlock Miiverse stamps for each outfit you unlock in-game, which you can apply exclusively to your hand-drawn creations.

Assemble two of your most heroic friends and solve challenging puzzles together as the saviours of Hytopia in The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, coming to Nintendo 3DS family systems on 23rd October. For a full overview of what lies in store, an extended trailer is now available to view via the Nintendo UK YouTube channel.

Star Fox 64 3D: The Star Fox team returns for one of its greatest missions, originally released as Lylat Wars in Europe. Blast enemies as you fly through ruined cityscapes and dense meteor fields, and take on friends in local multiplayer in this action-packed 3D shooter.

nintendogs + cats: Have you ever wanted to play with puppies and kittens in the palm of your hand? Look after a range of breeds, teach them tricks, enter them in different challenges and activities, and dress them up in a range of accessories. Different breeds are available to choose at the start of each of the game’s three versions: French Bulldog, Toy Poodle, and Golden Retriever. All breeds can be unlocked in all versions.

Mario Tennis Open: Thrilling tennis action for up to four players, either online or in Local Play. Run your opponent ragged with topspin, backspin, lobs and more, then get in position to pull off a stunning Chance Shot that’s sure to leave them completely bamboozled!

Yoshi’s New Island: Yoshi and Baby Mario are reunited for a free-wheeling platform adventure packed with classic Yoshi gameplay, all wrapped up in a collection of dreamy art styles. Hunt high and low for countless collectibles, and even smash through obstacles with the new Mega Eggdozers.

New Style Boutique 2- Fashion Forward Coming To Nintendo 3DS On November 20th In Europe


Coming exclusively to Nintendo 3DS family systems on 20th November, Nintendo presents: New Style Boutique 2 – Fashion Forward gives players the opportunity to rise to the top of the fashion world as the manager of their very own boutique. The fun goes far beyond the shopfloor, as players can also let their creativity loose in four additional roles: hair stylist, make-up artist, model, and designer.

This third instalment in the fashion simulation series that has sold over 1.5 million units across Europe to date lets budding fashionistas run their very own chic boutique in the bustling Beaumonde City, home to hundreds of colourful personalities. Characters visit the shop and describe what they’re looking for, and it’s up to the player to pick out the perfect look, choosing from 19,000 items like casual dresses, eye-catching t-shirts, and those all-important accessories including bags and earrings. Make the right recommendation and the customer will leave thrilled, sure to spread the word!

On top of the thousands of in-game items with which to style customers, there are special pieces that can only be unlocked by tapping compatible amiibo during gameplay, including Peach’s Princess Crown, Mario’s M-Hat, Yoshi’s Egg Hooded Jacket and more. New items will also be available to download after the game’s launch, while regular online themed contests will challenge stylists to show off their very best outfits. Couture connoisseurs can even organise their own contests for other players to join – perfect for finding inspiration and comparing ensembles.

In addition to the fun shop management gameplay of previous titles, four exciting new professions await dedicated followers of fashion, with the freedom to switch between them whenever they like:

  • Hair stylist and make-up artist: Styling clients goes far beyond clothes, with a huge range of make-up looks to apply at the beautician’s and countless creative hairstyles to delight customers at the hair salon.
  • Designer: Imaginative style enthusiasts can build their very own fashion house by designing a unique clothing and accessories line. Fashion labels are always on the lookout for up-and-coming designers, and often commission new items to complement their existing collection – a great opportunity to get noticed and spread the word about the boutique.
  • Model: Players can also show off their sartorial savvy as a model for in-game brands, each with its own vision and needs. It’s all about pairing the right outfit with flawless hair and make-up, then bringing it all together with the perfect pose. Images from photo shoots might even appear on billboards and advertisements around the city for everyone to admire!
  • Lastly, a retreat from the hustle and bustle of the fashion world awaits at Caprice Chalet. Here, anyone with a taste for decorating can transform the rooms of a dollhouse into anything from a relaxing bedroom to a trendy boutique, then share them online or with other players met via StreetPass.

Nintendo presents: New Style Boutique 2 – Fashion Forward will be available across Europe from 20th November, exclusively for Nintendo 3DS family systems. A hardware bundle containing a white New Nintendo 3DS system with a digital copy of the game, exclusive elegant white cover plates and a download code for a HOME Menu theme, will also launch on the same day.
