Here's What Xenoblade Chronicles Looks Like On A Standard 3DS

(Kind of)

When Nintendo announced the New 3DS, it also lifted the lid on a handheld port of the popular wii RPG Xenoblade Chronicles. Exclusive to the new hardware, the game took advantage of the system's more powerful innards to reproduce the epic scale of its home console counterpart. Nintendo insisted that the conversion was only possible due to...

Updated lifetime game sales for both systems released

Nintendo has released its Q2 financial results covering the first six months of this year, and the outcome's largely positive.

Earn Yourself Tri Force Heroes 'Friendly Tokens' at these UK Events

Don't forget your 3DS

We love a bit of StreetPass here at Nintendo Life and with our recent review of The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes it was our intrepid adventurer Thomas Whitehead who concluded that the game is best served as local multiplayer. The game also restricts you by only allowing you to earn 'Friendly Tokens' using the...

Localization Specialist Thomas Lipshultz on Return to PopoloCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale

Translation, triple audio, and true romance

When we got our first hands-on time with Return to PopoloCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale at E3 earlier this year, we were very impressed; this quietly charming little JRPG ended up being a highlight of the 3DS' lineup at the show, and we were eager to see more. Thankfully, at a preview event in San...

We're rapidly approaching the craziest shopping season of the year for the Holidays, with Nintendo and its rivals gearing up to compete for our hard earned money.

Nintendo Goes for the Zany Approach in North American Yo-Kai Watch Marketing

No, this isn't a Japanese commercial

Yo-Kai Watch is out in North America soon, and Level-5 will be hoping that it makes them enough money for a second swimming pool of cash - we're assuming there's already one in the company's HQ from sales of the IP in Japan. We're not quite sure whether the RPG is enjoying the buzz it'd hope for, however, at...

Ooo's clues too

If you want to play Adventure Time: Finn & Jake Investigations, the odds look really good for you. A version of the game is kicking around on just about all the current (and a few not-so-current) systems out there. If you ask nicely, they might even make a port for the N-Gage.

The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes Misses Out on UK Top 10

Tri again next week

The latest UK chart results are out, with some new releases battling it out with long-established blockbusters. It's a mixed week from Nintendo's perspective, with some ever-green titles clinging on and a new release underperforming - arguably - a little. The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes has made its début in 11th place in...

Rumour: Data Miners Reveal That The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes Will Be Receiving DLC

Data Miners Reveal That The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes Will Be Receiving DLC

New areas and new costumes appear to be on the way

It's amazing to think how far Nintendo has come along with paid DLC in the last few years. The Nintendo of five years ago seemed to be very reluctant to consider adding content to their games, though admittedly the DS and Wii didn't have the best infrastructure for this kind of thing. Now it's an...

Nintendo Console and amiibo Furniture Items Seem Destined for Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer

Insert your own joke about a fully stocked amiibo shelf

Just like in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, some little DLC freebies will likely become increasingly common in Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer. It's a little way to keep players coming back, and in a game focused on nothing but decorating it seems inevitable that the furniture range will be...

Nintendo Continues to Show Its Fun Side With Tri Force Heroes Pom Pom Face Off

Eiji Aonuma takes the win?

It may be our contention that The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes doesn't show the famous franchise in its finest light, but it's a title that is undeniably designed to bring 3DS owning friends together for an enjoyable shared experience. For most of us that'll mean sitting in a comfy seat and hopping online or maybe...

Don't worry, be happy

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer has been out for a few weeks now and had a day one update to add in online room viewing and sharing, which had been a post-launch addition in Japan. Unlike with some titles this game isn't overly insistent on you installing the update, and some may have missed it entirely. Yet it's the only...

Here's Where The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes Falls in the Timeline

Thank God it doesn't branch again

As many of you know, all games in the Legend of Zelda series are actually connected by a large and somewhat convoluted timeline. Basically, there's one timeline up to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and then it splits into two parts based on whether the hero was defeated or was victorious. The defeated hero...
