In about two weeks after the release of the New Nintendo 3DS, around 19.000 of the neat little faceplates for the smaller models have been sold. Most of these sales were done upon the initial launch of the handheld and out of the 38 available, a select four saw most of the popularity. 

You can see what the four most popular faceplates were in the gallery after the jump!

Shantae and the Pirate's Curse, the latest chapter in the popular series by indie team WayForward Technologies, launches on the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U eShops in two days, but we're getting a good taste of the action early! The game's launch trailer is out today, and twelve minutes of gameplay footage has also been uploaded. Check it out by clicking below!

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS launched on October 3, but Nintendo's marketing push is still going strong. In a new commercial aptly dubbed "A Link to the Smash" (a play on the Zelda game A Link to the Past) Nintendo interviews Zelda fans at a gaming convention to find out what they love about Smash. Check it out by clicking below!

We're exactly one month away from the launch of Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire, and the hype is building! One of the new features in the remade games is the Soaring ability. By obtaining either Latios or Latias (each of the two is exclusive to one of the games), you can fly all around the region for faster travel and to find new places to explore, including Mirage Spots in the sky containing legendary Pokémon. This ability, along with other features, is showcased in the latest trailer. Check it out by clicking below!

Earlier today we learned why Sakurai set the time limit for Smash Run to be five minutes. In that same Famitsu article, Sakurai also discusses other things regarding the process of developing Super Smash Bros. He covers everything from how he approaches music to the amount of tips in the game, and even how he goes about updating the "Pic of the Day."

We're back with another weekly installment of Gamnesia's Game Clash! Every Monday we pit two video games against each other, and the winner is decided by your votes!

Sonic Generations blended 2D and 3D action together catering to both classic and modern Sonic fans. Which of these 2011 series refreshes do you like more? Hit the jump to cast your vote and join the debate!

The hype for Super Smash Bros. isn't done yet! Remember when there was a ROM dump that gave evidence to the inclusion of DLC? Well the post-launch speculation for the game doesn't stop there as now hackers have discovered a bunch of text and code that practically proves that DLC for the game will happen, and for both versions of the game. Like last time, it's going to be a doozy, which you can read after the jump!

Are you not going to be able to receive the Pokémon Trainer Club Newsletter tomorrow (there's still time to sign up by the way!)? Don't worry, Nintendo has just announced additional distributions for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire that will run through December.

Pokémon's next big double entry, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, launches on the 21st of next month, and pre-orders for the third generation remakes have already exceeded pre-orders for Pokémon X and Y. That's a pretty impressive feat, considering X and Y held the record of the most pre-ordered 3DS title in Japan. Though the announcement did not quite state the exact figures, Nintendo of UK did say this is a global pattern. Many of the current Pokémon players did not play the originals when they released in 2003, due to lack of disinterest or being too young (or nonexistent yet), so it will end up catering both to the nostalgia crowd and remain a fresh experience to a large number of players.

Great news Pokémon fans! Today, Nintendo announced that two Pokémon spin-off titles from the Game Boy Color will be heading to the 3DS Virtual Console in early November.

Pokémon Puzzle Challenge, a Pokémon adaptation of Tetris Attack, will be available on the Virtual Console starting November 6th for $4.99; Pokémon Trading Card Game, a video game adaptation of the real-life trading card game, will be available on November 13th for $5.99.
