Yes, you read it right, and I heard it directly from Nintendo Sweden (Bergsala AB) just now (It’s a Swedish to English translation, so it’s not 100%… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

Nintendo wins second appeal in 3DS patent troll case

Back in April 2016 a decision was made in a New York Federal Court that Nintendo does not infringe upon Tomita Technologies USA patents with the Nintendo 3DS. Specifically, this case ruled that the technology included in the Nintendo 3DS is significantly different from that showcased by the plaintiff.Today, that decision was upheld in an Appeals Court and is the second such decision to be upheld with the case in appeal. Nintendo is particularly pleased with the decision, issuing this statement about the verdict:“We are very pleased with the Court’s decision. Nintendo 3DS has never used the technology in Tomita’s patent, and the Court’s ruling confirms Nintendo’s long tradition of using its own innovative technology. This case also proves once again that Nintendo will aggressively defend patent lawsuits when our products do not infringe, even when we must do so over many years, through multiple trials and in multiple countries.”This case has been ongoing for more than six years and started at the beginning of the Nintendo 3DS’ life. Now that the case is wrapped up, we’re wondering when we’ll see the first patent suits against Nintendo for a set of detachable controllers that hook up to a tablet and…

DEAL: Get Monster Hunter Generations for only $19.99

I dunno about you, but I was pretty disappointed that Nintendo’s Switch presentation didn’t feature any news from Capcom about the next Monster Hunter game. Capcom has been dedicated to Nintendo consoles with the series since the Nintendo 3DS debuted, so it would be strange for them to abandon Nintendo in favor of home consoles like the PS4.I’m sure we’ll get some juicy tid-bits about the next upcoming Monster Hunter game soon, but if you’re still eager to experience Generations on Nintendo 3DS and haven’t done so yet, you can snag a copy on Amazon for just $20 bucks. They’re out of stock right now, but if you order it you’ll get it for the cheaper price and Amazon will ship when new stock is available.I’ve done this a few times with a handful of games including the last Fire Emblem and the wait is never more than a week or so. Not bad if you’re a Monster Hunter fan and you missed out on Generations. It’s got some notable improvements over Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, too.Get Monster Hunter Generations on Amazon READ FULL STORY AT NINTENDOTODAY!

The Alliance Alive Looks Lovely in its Debut Trailer

A new trailer has been released for the upcoming FuRyu developed Nintendo 3DS exclusive JRPG The Alliance Alive. The trailer showcases the game’s relaxing music and pretty character design but we also get a good look at game-play. There’s a world with towns, NPCs and various places to explore. Combat appears to be turn-based and at a glance seems similar to that in The Legend of Legacy, the last game from this development team. There are also clips from scenes and some text dialogue, although it is in Japanese. The Alliance Alive launches in Japan in spring of 2017. See the trailer below. [embedded content]

Gurumin 3D: A Monstrous Adventure Review — A Frighteningly Good Time

Sometimes wonderful things come in small packages. A great example of this is Gurumin 3D: A Monstrous Adventure. Launching as an eShop exclusive at a budget price point and without much fanfare, one could be forgiven for assuming the Nintendo 3DS port of Nihon Falcom’s 2004 PC title was just tepid shovelware. Yet to make such an assumption would be a terrible disservice to Gurumin, which unfolds to reveal a surprisingly compelling and charming game-play formula. Though it has appeared before on the PC and the PSP, Gurumin feels truly at home on a Nintendo platform, thanks in equal parts to its cartoony charms and the clear influence of some classic Nintendo IP on its game design. Our heroine is Parin, a spunky young red headed girl who is sent to stay with her grandfather while her excavator/adventurer parents travel the world in search of excitement. Parin will have no shortage of her own excitement though, and it becomes clear quite quickly as she is introduced to friendly monsters. She hasn’t time for many pleasantries with her no friends though, because their home, Monster Village, is in ruins following an assault from the nefarious Phantom Prince and his cohorts. Parin’s adventure is…

Get Psyched for Pokémon Sun & Moon’s Demo with New Trailer

A new trailer has been released for the upcoming Nintendo 3DS exclusive RPGS Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. The trailer promotes the game’s demo, which is available today for free download. The demo will let players explore select parts of the region, capture various Pokemon and interact with some of the new features, such as riding Pokemon and unleashing Pikachu’s Gigabolt Havoc special attack, which looks cool but probably still isn’t enough to make Pikachu viable in the series’ fierce competitive scene. Check out the trailer below; you may get more than you bargained for in this demo. [embedded content]
