Nintendo Japan has uploaded a new video which gives gamers a closer look at the new Nintendo 3DS system that was announced yesterday. The video shows off a number of features that can be found in the upcoming console including the new 3D viewing angle.
We all knew he was coming thanks to the leaks earlier this week, but the legendary Ganondorf has been spotted in today’s trailer for Super Smash Bros on Nintendo 3DS. The image isn’t really clear, but if you look carefully you can spot Ganondorf in the tiny circle. No doubt he will be officially confirmed by Nintendo in the very near future.
Thanks, Nathan S,
Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has stayed true to his word and taken part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Reggie has put a twist on things and asked Nintendo of America employees to take part in a raffle, make a donation, and then proceed to dunk Reggie and the rest of his staff.
Thanks, Mi Culito and PolisKanin
Nintendo Europe will be laying off 320 people from its offices at the end of the month. Nintendo says that these measures have come about as the company tries to enable the European business to “adapt to the rapidly changing business environment”. The company also announced that they’re reorganizing the European Localization Development department. This has meant that the contracts of 190 temporary agency workers have now finished.

A downloadable content pack called Origin Island – available for purchase from the Nintendo eShop at launch – will extend the Fantasy Life adventure even further. Origin Island offers a new area that is home to an ancient culture and powerful enemies, additional story content, new ranks to achieve in Life Classes, access to even more powerful equipment and two new varieties of pets to adopt: birds and dragons.
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.
