Retailer Walmart Mexico has now changed its pre-order listing for Tomodachi Collection on Nintendo 3DS to Tomodachi Life. We’ve had numerous hints that the adorable life sim is coming to the west. It should also be noted that Nintendo recently filed a trademark for Tomodachi Life. Hopefully we will get a western release date soon.
Thanks, Roberto G
Nintendo of America revealed the new Mickey 3DS XL a few days ago, but details were a little sparse. The special edition console will launch exclusively for Walmart at the suggested retail price of $199.96 with a 4GB SD card, though Disney Magical World will not be bundled with the system. As was expected, the Mickey 3DS XL does sport a name change from the Japanese system released last year, and simply says Disney Magical World in a beautiful golden logo. The limited edition Mickey console joins the peach pink 2DS to celebrate the release of Disney Magical World on April 11.
Popular US retailer Walmart are selling the limited edition Mario & Luigi Nintendo 3DS XL console for $150. The device generally retails for $199.99 so if you decide to take the plunge then you’ll save yourself a respectable $50. The package also includes the well-received Mario & Luigi: Dream Team pre-installed and a 4GB SD card.
If you’re thinking of picking up a Nintendo 2DS in the not so distant future then it’s well worth checking out this deal at Walmart. The popular US retailer is selling the Nintendo 2DS for a mere $99.99 during Black Friday, which takes place on Friday, November 29th. Are you tempted to take the plunge and purchase a Nintendo 2DS?
A recent advertisement from Walmart Canada states that the Wii U 8GB Basic package will be retailing for $199.99 starting Friday, August 2nd. There were numerous rumours circulating a few months back that Nintendo is planning to discontinue the 8GB Basic and drop the pricing of the 32GB Premium system, though this has yet to happen. Will you be picking up a Wii U 8GB Basic package for $199.99?
Nintendo announced during the last Wii U-focused Nintendo Direct, which took place in January, that a new 3D Mario platformer and Mario Kart for Wii U are scheduled to be playable at this year’s E3. Also during the online presentation the company touched on the next original The Legend of Zelda game for its latest console.
Although none of them were given official names, pre-order pages for all three games have already popped up on Walmart’s website. The retailer is listing these three Wii U games for pre-order: Mario 3D, Zelda 2 (RPG) and Mario Kart U. Note that “Zelda 2 (RPG)” isn’t referring to The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker remake, as that title has a pre-order page, too.
American retailers Best Buy and Walmart have both listed Xenoblade for Wii U. Could this mean that Xenoblade Chronicles is being remade for Nintendo’s first HD console? Perhaps not, as the game’s only released last year in North America. But it is, however, probably referring to Monolith Soft’s first Wii U game, which is code-named ‘X.’ Let’s hope this means that the studio’s upcoming Wii U role-playing game will be released sooner rather than later.
A boy from Talladega, Ala., received a Nintendo 3DS XL box for Christmas. Instead of containing the actual handheld, the box was full of rocks wrapped in tissue paper.
The box was purchased from a local Walmart, and after explaining to the retailer what had happened, the boy’s mother was able to receive an actual Nintendo 3DS XL for her son.
Apparently, scams like this happen because consumers purchase merchandise from Walmart and then return it to the store with the items missing.
Cheap Ass Gamer have been informed that Walmart in-store pre-orders for Wii U will begin on Sunday, October 14th.
