Sharpshooting some serious bugs

Hopeful townsfolk have been waiting for Gunman Clive 2, the sequel to the stylish, breakout 3DS eShop title, to ride in with the sunrise. It's still slated to come, but one-man development team Bertil Hörberg has pushed the release back to address some troublesome bugs found over Christmas. Hörberg announced the...

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D Limited-Edition Bundle Confirmed for North America

Comes with a Skull Kid figurine

Update: Nintendo's Facebook post specifies this bundle as exclusive to Amazon, GameStop and Fry's Electronics (thanks for the heads up @Ryno).

Review: MindFeud (3DS eShop)

MindFeud (3DS eShop)

Feud for thought

The best kinds of board games don't force you to rely on sheer luck to win. There are plenty out there which encourage the use of logic and quick thinking to seize victory, which makes for a more satisfying experience overall as a result. All manner of puzzle games have enjoyed a wide level of success on 3DS, but MindFeud from...

Review: My First Songs 2 (3DS eShop)

My First Songs 2 (3DS eShop)

More of the same

For those who haven't read our review of the original My First Songs on 3DS, you may want to read that before going any further in this one. My First Songs 2 is the sequel to My First Songs and generally follows the same formula as the original. You have a variety of nursery rhymes which you can tap along to using the touch screen...

Review: Sumico (3DS eShop)

Sumico (3DS eShop)

To sum up

Puzzle games are ten-a-penny these days and usually take the form of a clone of an existing puzzle game – most notably Bejeweled – so it's nice to see new ideas sprouting forth from developers such as those found in Sumico for the 3DS. Does its shiny new gameplay offer something fresh and enjoyable, or is it puzzle pitfall? The basic...

The Biggest 3DS Games of 2015

Majora's Mask 3D! Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate! Code Name: S.T.E.A.M! More!

We've now kicked off into a New Year, and to get us going we've already published our feature for ten of the biggest Wii U games of 2015; now it's the turn of the 3DS. While Nintendo has been going all out to emphasize a relatively busy 2015 line-up for Wii U, it's been a lot...

Review: Brutus & Futée (3DS eShop)

Brutus & Futée (3DS eShop)

Et tu, Futée

You'd be forgiven for not being especially inspired by the title of Brutus and Futée, as two unknown character's names doesn't really strike that much confidence in consumers. The title also doesn't give anything away in regards to the gameplay itself, so is this strangely named game worth your time? The two titular characters in...

1st January (North America)

Pokémon Pinball, Bionic Commando, discounted Shovel Knight and more

News: Pixar Movie, Up, is Now Available for 3DS in Japan

Pixar Movie, Up, is Now Available for 3DS in Japan

Random but true

In the early days of the 3DS, Nintendo was keen to promote the portable as an all-round entertainment device; the Nintendo Video channel was relatively prominent with weekly updates, and in Europe there was even a Eurosport channel with regular videos. There were multiple issues with this approach - there wasn't enough content or app...

1st January (Europe)

Captain Toad, Fire Emblem, an F-Zero first and more

Review: Shadow of the Ninja (3DS eShop / NES)

Shadow of the Ninja (3DS eShop / NES)

Gaming pleasure and pain, oh look it's ninjas again

There's a great moment early on in Shadow of the Ninja where an armoured trooper stands atop a ledge occasionally shooting at you. You can't simply wait for the firing to stop before attacking as the gun doubles as a shield against your slashing blade. As you contemplate jumping between bullets to...

Review: Fairune (3DS eShop)

Fairune (3DS eShop)

An Ys-y purchase

The RPG genre is still rather popular, with several big-name releases arriving every year. While these are usually grand spectacles, Fairune keeps things quite simple. As with many "retro-esque" games these days, it attempts to emulate the look and feel of a classic '80s game, and that comes with matching game mechanics. Combat is...

Review: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy (3DS eShop)

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy (3DS eShop)

No appeal needed

The Ace Attorney franchise is well known but, when considered in isolation, it's a bit of an oddity. With its exaggerated characters, stilted animations and a tendency to be as wordy as a Tolstoy novel — not really, but there's a lot of reading — we'd have perhaps expected it to be a one off release in the West before being...
