Tomodachi Life is now just days from release, with Nintendo keen to communicate its charms to as many 3DS owners as possible.

Chocobo Racing 3D Was Canned Because Square Enix Wasn't Happy With The Quality

Spitting feathers

Remember Chocobo Racing 3D? It was announced for the 3DS some time ago, but Square Enix has shown nothing of the game for months, and last year Takashi Tokita — the creator of the original Chocobo Racing for the PlayStation — said that the project had been closed. We now have further confirmation of this fact from Square Enix...

Could this fan-translated release find its way to the eShop?

Masahiro Sakurai Shows Off Touch Screen Usage in Super Smash Bros. on 3DS

Steady those expectations...

Super Smash Bros. for 3DS is a game in a slightly odd position. It's due this 'Summer', yet is being consistently overshadowed by its Wii U brethren; the latter has its own E3 Invitational and is still getting a lot more coverage of Masahiro Sakurai's Super Smash Bros. Director's Room. Fear not, 3DS fans, as Sakurai-san...
