La-Mulana Director Would Welcome Offers from Publishers

Go ahead, make his day

Nicalis won't publish La-Mulana on WiiWare in the West, but that doesn't mean the game is entirely, 100% stone cold dead. We asked La-Mulana director Takumi Naramura if he and the Nigoro team would continue to pursue a western release through another publisher, to which he replied: The game is completed, we welcome the offer...

Miyamoto Keen On New Zelda Based on Link to the Past

So are we

Last year, Shigeru Miyamoto talked about Link to the Past on 3DS, and he's been at it again on a recent press trip to Paris. Speaking to Edge, Miyamoto said he's still interested in bringing Link's 16-bit adventure to the 3D Classics range, but he has something else in mind: I think the answer would be the same if we're talking about just...

Yoshi 3DS, Super Mario 3D Land Demo and More

Pick up your salt at the door

An astronomical amount of attention surrounds any Nintendo press event, particularly one where the company announces it'll be revealing new products. Next Tuesday's "3DS new product conference" is just such an occasion, and once again we have a fresh batch of rumours about exactly what'll be shown off at the conference and during the following Tokyo Games..

Miyamoto: A Link to the Past Could be Reworked for the 3DS

Hyrule just looks too good in 3D

Deciding which old classics get the 3DS treatment is probably a more difficult task than we as consumers can imagine. Luckily, we have designers like Shigeru Miyamoto who seem to have a pretty clear idea on what might and might not work. Speaking to the Guardian newspaper, Miyamoto explained why The Legend of Zelda:...

The Game Gear Games We Need on 3DS Virtual Console

We go digging in the Sega vaults

We already know about the first five Game Gear games for 3DS Virtual Console, but looking further down the line, what titles would we love to see made available on the console's download service? Below are just some of the games we'd love to download after the eShop launches in May. Shinobi II: The Silent Fury: The...

10 Sega Games We Want on 3DS

Just 10?!

3DS has got a pretty promising line-up of titles from third-party publishers, with day one support from Capcom, Konami, Sega, EA and more, and plenty more to come in the future. That said, we put our thinking caps on here at Nintendo Life to think of which titles we want to see from publishers in the future, starting from Nintendo's old rival: SEGA. The blue company only has two games..

3DS Game Cases Look to be More Environmentally Friendly

Game booklets still the main culprit for overall size, it seems

A Japanese retailer has posted some images of what 3DS software boxes look like when opened up and it seems like there's not a hole lot of difference from the regular DS boxes. Well, there are a couple of differences: the placement of the system logo is now on the right hand side of the...

News: Cross Everything and This Monster Hunter 3DS Rumour May Come True

Cross Everything and This Monster Hunter 3DS Rumour May Come True

Wait and see

Monster Hunter's spiritual home is on the PSP, where its many incarnations have sold countless millions in Japan, and far fewer copies elsewhere in the world. Last year saw its first appearance on a Nintendo console with the formidable Monster Hunter 3 (~Tri), a critical success, and since the revelation of the 3DS fans of the series have been insisting Capcom bring the series to..

Marvelous "Working to Meet Needs" of Little King's Story Fans

But what does that mean?

Little King's Story may have been our joint Game of the Year 2009 but that didn't translate into massive sales at the tills, and things got worse for fans when co-developer Cing went into administration in early 2010. It looked as though Corobo's story stopped there, but an interview with Tomio Kanazawa, Marvelous Entertainment's Group Manager, may reignite that tiny flame..

Takashi Iizuka Interested in Creating NiGHTS 3

Some fans not so keen

NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams could have been fantastic: a sequel to one of the all-time great Sega games, NiGHTS into Dreams on Sega Saturn, Journey of Dreams sadly missed the mark by changing the original's addictive score attack focus with a wider range of challenges and scenarios. The short development time mandated by Sega didn't help either, but that hasn't put Sonic Team..

These Super Scribblenauts DSi Consoles Defy Adjectives

Only as PAX prizes, sadly

The game that's more a test of wordsmanship than gaming skills, Super Scribblenauts is going all-out to provide the most stylish gamers out there with enough customised stuff to sink a pink, spotted battleship. First came the rooster hat, then the fluffy headphones, but the real cream of the Super Scribblenauts crop is the...

Hands On: We Experience 3DS in London

We Experience 3DS in London

We play PilotWings Resort, Nintendogs + Cats and more!

Our intrepid reporters Darren and James made a trip to London's rather posh Millbank Tower yesterday to experience the one and only 3DS. First things first: there were no new titles available here, no new information about the 3DS and no word on its release date and pricing. It was simply a chance to get hands-on with the machine to see if it..

3D Video Chat Possible says Iwata

Is there nothing it can't do?

We know the 3DS will have improved online capabilities, and we know it's capable of taking 3D photographs, but an interview between Forbes and Nintendo President Satoru Iwata has hinted at a combination of the two: online three-dimensional video chat. Although Mr Iwata chooses his words carefully and never states such a feature is planned, he does say that a number of..
