Latest 3DS Updates

In celebration of the launch of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze on Nintendo Switch, Did You Know Gaming featured it (and its predecessor, Donkey Kong Country Returns) in their latest episode. There's tons of interesting Kong facts throughout the video, including the revelation that Retro Studios hails Shigeru Miyamoto as "Master Yoda" for his wise counsel.

Nintendo 3DS has enjoyed a lengthy stay in the spotlight as Nintendo's primary handheld since its debut in 2011. You might think the launch and incredible sales success of Nintendo Switch (which can also function as a handheld) would spell the end for 3DS, but that doesn't appear to be the case. Nintendo envisions the two co-existing for some time, and they recently announced plans to make new 3DS games until at least 2020. Is Nintendo crazy to continue to support seven-year-old hardware when they've got that beautiful, HD Switch screen available? Maybe a little, but there's a method to their madness.

On September 16th, 2015, Tatsumi Kimishima was faced with an impossible task: filling the shoes of Satoru Iwata. Nintendo's former President was a gaming icon and a beloved figure, and his sudden passing was a tragedy that shook the industry. In taking the torch from Iwata, Kimishima inherited a company that was not only brokenhearted, but also struggling financially. Kimishima was not Iwata's first choice for the job, but he stepped up to the plate when no one else was prepared to do so. Three years later, Kimishima is preparing to step down and turn the Presidency over to someone new. Looking back on his brief, but important stint as President, I believe Satoru Iwata would be proud of what he accomplished.

I know what some of you are thinking. "Why would you ever listen to music when you can enjoy the lovely soundtracks video games have to offer?" That's a fair point, and I used to agree with that. But there's a certain point when I can't stand the constant "wahoo!" of Mario Kart or the boring ambient sounds of League of Legends. I need something fresh. I need something that gets me pumped.

What about you? What kind of music do you listen to when playing video games? Hit the jump and let us know in the comments!

Nintendo 3DS has had a solid run since its debut in 2011. In seven years, the handheld (and its extended family of varied 2DS and 3DS models) has sold over 72 million units and over 364 million pieces of software. Given that Nintendo Switch can function as a handheld, though, you might think its record-setting first year would mark the end of Nintendo's support for 3DS, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

Four years ago, Atlus enlisted the help of the Etrian Odyssey team to develop a new Persona game for the Nintendo 3DS. The result was a dungeon crawling fan service game that mashed the two worlds of Persona 3 and 4 together. The game was received rather well, and after the success of Persona 5, it seemed like a good idea for the company to pursue a sequel.

Enter Persona Q2, a game that is slated to come to the Nintendo 3DS in the future. At least, that's what we though until earlier today. Head inside for more details!

Have you ever looked at a Nintendo game and thought it needed just a little more Waluigi in it? Mario Kart 7 on 3DS, despite being a fantastic game, is entirely lacking in the Waluigi category. Thankfully, modders have fixed this! By replacing the Queen Bee, it's possible to import Waluigi's model, voice, and visuals, making the lovable villain entirely playable. A video showcasing this mod is available now, and players will soon be able to download it for themselves.
