A few more tidbits about the New 3DS

We’ve been poking around the Japanese New 3DS website and picked up on a few more details about the system.

First, let’s talk briefly about the Internet browser. Users will be able to switch tabs with the ZL and ZR buttons. By using the c-stick, you can zoom in on the page.

Next, camera functions. The New 3D makes use of stable 3D. Because it recognizes the position of the person’s face, the feature doesn’t support some software which utilizes the inner camera. Also, if you have accessories on your head or face – or if there is strong direct light entering the camera – the feature may not work properly.

Speaking with EDGE this month, Xenoblade Chronicles X executive producer Tetsuya Takahashi discussed how the title will be taking advantage of the GamePad.

“We decided that it would be perfect to use as a navigation device, in the same way that a lot of tablet computers are,” Takahashi said. “We’ve put some important features relating to the game system and your objectives onto the GamePad, so I feel that this should create a very user-friendly experience for players.”

Xenoblade Chronicles X will be coming to Wii U sometime in 2015.

Final Fantasy Explorers director Atsushi Hashimoto and project manager Takahiro Abe shared more details about the game during a live stream event last week. Read on below for a summary of what was revealed (as translated by Siliconera).

- When you’re not in combat and the battle theme isn’t playing, your health will regenerate rapidly
- This means you’ll only need to worry about using potions in battle
-In addition to the Provoke move that comes in handy for managing hate as a tank, they’ll also have the Flash ability
- This will work similarly as the way it does in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn
- Can pick between auto-saves and manual saves
- Acquire Abilities at the crystal in the middle of town
- Purchase abilities with CP points earned while going on quests
- You won’t be able to learn too many at once, as Abilities will be something you’ll work on over time
- Regarding Abilities that you can learn from other classes, or cross-class skills, you won’t be able to use every single skill from all the Jobs
- For the most part, you’ll be able to learn them as long as they make sense for your Job in some way
- Ex: Dark Knights will be able to learn various Black Mage spells
- Can have White Mages that don’t really heal as much, instead but specialize in damaging opponents
- Clearing quests takes about 20 minutes on average
- During the fight against Ifrit, the Ranger used her Trance mode, then followed by the “Legend Character” transformation and turned into Cloud, who used a bow instead of his regular Buster Sword
- Trance mode and transforming into a Legendary Character aren’t exactly the same thing
- Trance more is more of a power-up
- In order to go Trance mode, there’s an indicator on the top-left part of the screen that will show you when it will be possible to transform, which happens after defeating a certain amount of enemies
- Game has a system that lets you break parts off boss monsters to acquire material to create gear, or something else

Activision is bringing a Duck Dynasty game to the 3DS, PlayStation 4, PS3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360, according to listings on Newegg and the ESRB.

The ESRB’s description is as follows:

This is a simulation game in which players assume the role of the “new guy” at Duck HQ with the Duck Dynasty clan. Players explore the town of Duckville, perform tasks for various characters, and engage in fetching and hunting mini-games. Some “cartoony” hunting games involve shooting various animals: targeting flying ducks from a first-person perspective; shooting armadillos, rats, and roaches.

Newegg lists a mid-October release date for Duck Dynasty. At this time, Activision has yet to officially announce the game.
