Latest 3DS Updates

Z-Moves are all the rage these days. In Pokémon Sun and Moon, different types and sometimes certain Pokémon had their very own Z-Moves. Now, it seems as if one of the most popular Generation VII additions—trickster Pokémon Mimikyu—will be getting is own Z-Move in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.

Brotad is one of many music composers who has used his interest in gaming as a source of creative inspiration. This young man from Ohio has carved out a niche for himself despite the competition. With the recent release of his Animal Crossing-inspired album Solace, he has collected some of the coolest and calmest songs from the franchise and added his signature twist to them. With his style added to the artistry of everyone from fictional guitar-playing dog K.K. Slider to Animal Crossing: New Leaf composer Manaka Kataoka, this series' music becomes even smoother.

Fans have been obsessed with Geno ever since the wooden puppet stole their hearts in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. More so than any other Mario RPG partner who has only appeared as playable in a single game, he continues to be heralded by fans as the mascot of turn-based Super Mario. Sometimes it is hard to understand the hype for the guy, but it is easier to understand why people would be upset that his brief appearance in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga has been cut in the recent Nintendo 3DS remake.

Since their reveal, Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon have had fans worried that these games were going to be mere remakes of the latest generation, slightly updated with a bit of new content but largely remaining the same experiences as Sun and Moon were. The Pokémon Company has been slowly doling out details on the changes to these new games, however, and now they've hit us with some major reveals that may just dispel your fears. It looks like these new games will feature massive changes after all, with tons of new storylines as well as whole new worlds you can discover via the Ultra Wormhole.

With long waits come high expectations, and both of those phrases could be used to describe Nintendo's sci-fi franchises in the 2010s. Star Fox Zero received some mixed opinions when it released on the Wii U last year. The F-Zero series is still awaiting its long-overdue sequel. That leaves Metroid, the fan demand for which has at least been partly satiated with the announcement of Metroid Prime 4 on Nintendo Switch and the release of Metroid: Samus Returns for the Nintendo 3DS. Thankfully, the latter is an amazing game and perhaps one of the best on Nintendo's current handheld-exclusive system. As far as returns to form play out, they do not get much better than this.

A few days ago, Koei Tecmo announced their plans to release DLC for the upcoming Fire Emblem Warriors. Though there are three packs already in the works, that doesn't mean that this is the only content on the way. At the end of the Fire Emblem Warriors segment at the Tokyo Game Show, the game's producer Yosuke Hayashi stated that the team would take fan requests into account for any future DLC.

What would you like to see in future DLC?

We're just under a month away from the release of Fire Emblem Warriors, but as is the standard these days, we've already gotten word about DLC coming for the title, as Koei Tecmo revealed a three pack lineup earlier today at the Tokyo Game Show. Later this year, we can expect to see DLC based on Fire Emblem Fates, whereas Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light and Fire Emblem Awakening packs will be available next year, in winter and spring, respectively. The packs will be available as standalone purchases (¥1400 each), or you can buy them as a pack for a discount of ¥3000. A special bride costume for Lucina is also included with the three pack.

Fire Emblem Warriors launches next week in Japan, so it's no surprise that the last members of the roster have been getting their reveals this week at Tokyo Game Show. We saw a leak early last week that looked to reveal the final five additions to the roster, and after Lyn, Celica, and (seemingly) Anna were confirmed, we've been waiting for the final two to officially join the fight. That wait is now over; at long last, Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light's Caeda and Tiki have been officially confirmed for Fire Emblem Warriors.

Fire Emblem Warriors is less than a month away for most of the world, but Japan is getting it in a mere week, and that means it's time for Nintendo and Koei Tecmo to provide the final reveals for their upcoming title. During the Tokyo Game Show today, they've confirmed yet another character from that leak a few days back, and it's the second character that had gamers dubious: Celica. Fire Emblem Echoes' princess of Zofia will indeed be joining the fight!

Check out a new trailer and gameplay for Celica—as well as another tease for the game's roster—after the jump!

Update: The Pokémon Company has released a new trailer for this distribution. Check it out inside!

Original: To commemorate the upcoming Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You!, you can get a special Pikachu in Pokémon Sun and Moon starting today, September 19th. This promotion is different from Pokémon distribution promotions in the past, however, in that there are six different Pikachu available—but you're only allowed to have one.

When Mario Party: The Top 100 was announced at the recent Nintendo Direct, Nintendo made no mention of boards in the title, seeming to frame it as a simple minigame collection. As such, speculation started to brew as to whether or not this Nintendo 3DS minigames compilation of the Mario Party series would include boards at all. According to the official website for the game, however, fans shouldn't be worried.

At E3 2017, Microsoft announced an update for Minecraft that would allow users with the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Windows 10, and mobile versions of the game to all play with each other simultaneously. Unfortunately, the PlayStation systems are not participating in this update as of now due to Sony's own choice. Since the New Nintendo 3DS has just received its own version of Minecraft, some fans were wondering if it would be a part of Better Together update. However, it seems there are currently no plans for that to happen.
