Putting an end to Redd's 'crazy' ways
We've all been there before. You spot the infamous green tent in the town square with the words 'Black Market' hastily crossed out above the entrance. Inside, you also spot - no, it can't be - the Mona Lisa?! For a mere few thousand Bells you obviously buy it, and wait anxiously for the package to arrive in the...

Update: Possibly thanks to new EU ruling
Update (27th Aug, 13:45 BST): Further digging suggests that the change could be thanks to PSD2, a new payment directive adopted by the European Parliament.

Happiness through stability
Guess what? Nintendo just pushed a new firmware update out for the good old Nintendo 3DS. Double guess what?

Version number...

But what about the 3D one?
The 3DS is easily one of the greatest Nintendo systems of all-time thanks to its vast library of games and fancy features that took handheld gaming to the next level. As its time in the spotlight draws to a close, Nintendo appears to have officially phased out the 3D model on its North American website. As spotted by the...

As dwindling software sales and a paucity of games on the horizon finally signals the end of Nintendo 3DS' long day in the sun (despite what Nintendo might claim), there's no better time to look back over the extraordinary catalogue of what may well be Nintendo's final handheld-only console. After a slow start, the portable went...

The top Nintendo-published games
The Nintendo 3DS may well be on its very last legs, but that doesn't mean we can't celebrate the games which made it the fantastic console it was (and still is). We've already looked at the top ten best-selling Switch games earlier today, but now it's time to turn our attention to its older cousin, the 3DS. As you...
Just 200,000 units sold in the last quarter
The 3DS is a remarkable machine and has played host to some of the best games of the past decade. However, every console has its time in the sun, and despite Nintendo's protests, the 3DS really is dead now. In Nintendo's latest financial report, it was revealed that the 3DS sold j

"as long as there is demand"
The Nintendo Switch Lite seems like the perfect successor to the 3DS line of systems. It's a dedicated handheld and it's more affordable than the original Switch hardware. Despite this, Nintendo has no plans to drop support for its existing handheld device just yet. During an interview with The Verge, shortly after the...

The true end of an era?
While Nintendo won't come out and actually say it, the 3DS is pretty dead now. All of the major publishers and developers have shifted their attention to the Switch, and as a result, the older handheld system has seen its list of releases dry up completely. 2019 is looking pretty barren for 3DS owners as far
