Garfield and Paddington Bear to Star in Upcoming 3DS Blockbusters*

*Might not be blockbusters

The 3DS has a lot of great games, both at retail and on the eShop, but it can always do with a few more additions.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate April DLC Available Now, Featuring Sonic Palico Gear

Hopefully won't troll as hard as the Zelda unlocks

Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. Update Will Speed Up Enemy Turns, More Stock Of Marth amiibo Promised

Fast forward

Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. is an excellent strategy title for the 3DS, but it's really handicapped by the slowness of enemy turns. Waiting for your opponent to move their units is a real drag, and makes the game hard to enjoy to its fullest. Thankfully, Nintendo is aware of this issue and during yesterday's Nintendo Direct confirmed that a...
