Richard George, Executive Editor at IGN has announced on Twitter that Nintendo is planning to hold an all-day Nintendo 3DS event in a couple of weeks. There aren’t any hints as to what Nintendo is planning to showcase. It could be a couple of new games, or it could be about games that we already know about such as Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D.

Thanks, Mike S

  1. While I wish Nintendo would focus more on the Wii U, I do need more 3DS games to be excited about. There’s pretty much nothing else I was really looking forward to this year besides Luigi’s Mansion. I could buy Animal Crossing since I enjoyed the Wii version.

      • I quit playing Pokemon after my dog chewed up my Diamond version with nearly every Pokemon captured. Including Celebi, which I had to go to an event in order to obtain without a cheat device. The Monster Hunter Wii U demo just bored me. The attacks are too slow to hit anything.

I mean seriously…. The gameplay is fast , frenetic and skillfull . Edge of your seat stuff. The game has a massive learning curve at the start , but once it clicks you all of a sudden know how to do everything. It’s the best game on Wiiu so far imo. Even though it litteraly has 1080p Wii graphics XD

          • Also, how the hell do you load the Bowgun? I took what looked to be ammo out of that chest at the guys camp and couldn’t figure out how to even use them.

                • The gunlance you have on the demo just fires out sort of like a short rang blast on top of the melee attacks. You have X , A and R as attack buttons for most weapons. And some weapons do different things when you combine the two buttons. EG , pressing A and R together or X and A. Some weapons peform 8 hit combos . but you have to work out how to do the combo…. it’s deep lol.

                    • This game is meant for Hardcore Gamers but i know there’s plenty for casual too because of the Multiplayer. I mean Hardcore gamers can guide the newbie/casual gamer and help them out for their mission and yes to become a good hunter. You need to have a lot of patience on this game in order to enjoy it fully. I have this great feeling when my first big boss fight falling down on my Great Sword. ^_^

            • I also found this to give you a little taste of what it’s like online!
              And then you have all the gathering and combing different resources that you find everywhere and all the weapons and armour you make by collecting monster parts , mining materials and everything. Game is just epic.

              Hope I helped. Just take it from me , that demo was crap , capcom should of known better.
              If you do ever buy it , maybe use the IGN wiki to help you progress or whatever. I used it on the wii version a lot , and a couple of times on ultimate too.

  2. Like I said before, the Wii U will pick up in due time. Continue to remain patient and don’t panic. Worrying and panicing over a video game system isn’t going to help become better. While I do want to see more Wii U support, I am not going to whine and complain about it everyday until it happens. I will do something constructive in the mean time. Complaining over brings stress to your body and harms you physically, mentally, and spiritually.

  3. I think what people are generally saying is that Nintendo did a fantastic job of pulling the 3DS out of a nose-dive into the stratosphere and beyond. Now, we are waiting for them to do that with the Wii U and it doesn’t seem like they are moving at all. I know that they are, but it just feels like they have it stuck in neutral.

    They should continue to pound out news and updates to the 3Ds yes, but there needs to be a stead stream of news regarding the Wii U as well. I’m not asking the play their whole hand on a Nintendo Direct, but at least give us something before E3. Even if it is the announcement or in-game footage of just one major AAA 1st-party title. That would be okay with me.

  4. Awesome! I hope we will get to see some more of Animal Crossing New Leaf as well as a release date. Maybe they will announce more games coming to the West from Japan like Project X Zone and Fantasy Life.

  5. I’m going to make an entirely off-the-wall prediction for this upcoming event; they’re going to announce that the 3DS’s successor is in development, and maybe show off a few hints as to what’s in store next.
