You’re going to want this retro-themed Nintendo 3DS XL real bad

Not content with serving up the SNES Classic/Mini, Nintendo is now offering a New Nintendo 3DS XL with a retro SNES skin. You can only buy it through Amazon (at least until savvy scalpers get their hands on them), and it'll be released on November 27. Hopefully this handheld won't break hearts the way the limited SNES Classic supplies did, just like its predecessor the NES Classic. Those miniature memory machines sold out almost instantly, and while Nintendo is promising more SNES Classics befor

Nintendo Switch Selling Better Today Than Xbox One and PS4 Did Last Year

Nintendo Switch sales are passing the sales numbers of Xbox One and PlayStation 4 of last year. This marks the third straight month that Nintendo Switch has been No. This came after the news that Nintendo Switch reached 2 million units sold in America alone, garnering both an internal and competitive achievement. The chart from Statista compares the U.S. Nintendo Switch sales in 2017 to the best-selling platforms of 2016, and sure enough, it's selling better than the competitors did in 2016. The

Build of the week: there’s a new Mario soon so here’s a Nintendo PC

Every Monday, Build of the week highlights a unique rig from the web’s most dedicated PC building communities. It's-a me, the man that writes about strange computers once a week to pay for food and rent. There's a new Mario this week, which I'm sure the PC crowd will emulate within a few weeks after release and follow up with a slurry of troubling Mario mods for every fetish. What better way to acknowledge Mario's return than with a computer in the shape of an old Nintendo. To acknowledge Bigten

Animal Crossing focused Nintendo Direct coming tomorrow

Nintendo will be hosting a Nintendo Direct later this week that has been detailed to be focusing on the Animal Crossing franchise. Unfortunately, the Animal Crossing Direct will not be talking about a new Nintendo Switch or 3DS game in the Animal Crossing series. Instead, the Direct will be focusing on the Animal Crossing mobile game. The Nintendo Direct broadcast will not be live and might be canceled without prior notice, if Nintendo suffers issues with the system. The Animal Crossing Direct w

Nintendo stealth announces SNES themed 3DS XL

Nintendo may have just announced a new 3DS XL by using an Amazon listing. As you can clearly see in the image above, that's a New 3DS XL with a Super NES theme, complete with a retro-themed box and button colors on the inside. This device wasn't announced anywhere prior to this listing showing up, which is odd that Nintendo wouldn't say something themselves, though it's possible that Amazon listed this device accidentally and it could be pulled. This new retro-themed 3DS XL will apparently retai

Shen Megami Tensei V is coming Exclusively to the Nintendo Switch

In case you can't read Japanese, though, neither can I, the header above says Shen Megami Tensei V. In a post to the company's Twitter page, Atlus, has announced that the new game in the series is coming to the Nintendo Switch, exclusively. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Shen Megami Tensei, it's from Atlas, the same company that produces the popular Persona franchise. In fact, some refer to SMT as the "parent" franchise to Persona, though the game has a very different focus. Where Pers

Looks like Nintendo Switch update 4.0 broke some people’s audio in docked mode

Nintendo Switch update 4.0 added video capture and more good stuff to the system, but it also came with some new sound troubles. After installing the latest update, some Switch owners report choppy audio or no audio at all when playing games in docked mode. Crummy timing - Super Mario Odyssey, Nintendo Switch's biggest exclusive game yet, is set to arrive on Friday. From the reports I've seen, docked audio should work fine if you can play your Switch's audio directly through your TV speakers. Ho
