Two Deluxe Downloadable Kirby Games: Bounce or battle with two new titles available today at $6.99 each in the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS. Dedede’s Drum Dash Deluxe and Kirby Fighters Deluxe are standalone downloadable games that first made an appearance in Kirby: Triple Deluxe, and are now updated with enhanced game-play features.
In Dedede’s Drum Dash Deluxe, players move Dedede across the stage, bouncing to the beat in seven new stages exclusive to this downloadable version. In Kirby Fighters Deluxe, players use different copy abilities to defeat all of the arena opponents. This version includes five new stages and a new team battle feature. Players who already own Kirby: Triple Deluxe with StreetPass data will get bonus content in both downloadable games.
Tilmen from Nintendomination has uploaded the announcement video for the new Nintendo 3DS system which is coming to Japan this year. The new system features a number of improvements including a new CPU, a C Stick and a better 3D viewing angle, amongst other things. The new Nintendo 3DS won’t be coming to North America or Europe until sometime next year.
Kotaku is reporting that the recently announced new Nintendo 3DS console will include a parental filter for websites that you’ll have to pay $0.30 to remove. This is presumably so children can’t access adult sites. You’ll need a credit or debit card to pay the one-off fee.
Online gaming publications Eurogamer and Joystiq have been told by Nintendo that the new Nintendo 3DS console won’t be coming to North America and Europe until 2015. The newly announced console with an improved CPU is launching this year in Japan.
“Different territories make their own business decisions regarding individual products and timing,” a Nintendo spokesperson told us. “We plan to launch these products in Europe in 2015.”
“As for the overseas markets, our local subsidiaries will separately confirm. However, there will be no U.S. and European launches this calendar year.”
Nintendo Japan has confirmed that the company has more titles in the works for the recently announced new Nintendo 3DS console. The first of these games is a Wii port of Xenoblade Chronicles, but more titles will follow. The new exclusives will take full advantage of the new CPU and visuals and will utilise the second circle pad. However, older Nintendo 3DS titles won’t get a visual boost.
Thanks to those who sent this in.
Nintendo Europe has confirmed that you’ll be able to get custom themes for your Nintendo 3DS starting in October. The changes bring backgrounds, icons, folders, music and new sound effects. These will be available for the current Nintendo 3DS models. The new themes will be available via the Nintendo 3DS eShop.
With the introduction of the new Nintendo 3DS model you’ll now be able to change the covers to one of your liking. Judging from the images that Nintendo Japan has provided there will be plenty of different designs enabling you to customise the Nintendo 3DS as your own. Here’s just a sample of the designs.
