New Nintendo 3DS

In case it’s unclear: the white model is the New 3DS. The blue model is the very first 3DS model, while the black one is the 3DS XL.


The launches of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate and New 3DS make for a pretty powerful combo. Photos from Japan have appeared showing long lines for both products at different locations, including Tsutaya in Shibuya and Bic Camera in Ikebukuro. Most shots were snapped between 6 AM and 7 AM, so the demand was certainly there!


Yet another 3DS firmware update is out now in Japan. Version 9.1.0-20 has specific uses for both the New 3DS and original 3DS models.

Once the update is installed, New 3DS owners will be able to purchase themes, visit the eShop, use the Internet browser, and move software between systems. Themes are also available for original 3DS owners. System stability has been improved as well.


You can find more guide videos over on Nintendo’s Japanese YouTube channel, though they’re really about things that apply to all 3DS models and are about things we already know.

The long-awaited fourth entry in Nintendo’s crazy crossover series is finally out, but it finds itself on a curious platform – the 3DS. A multiplayer fighting game is a strange fit for the portable console, but this new instalment retains the addictive style of fighting and throws in a few new ways to battle. Even on the 3DS, the frenetic pace of previous entries is still present (to an extent – this ain’t Melee) and Smash is still very much an experience accessible to both newcomers and seasoned players, with plenty of weird Nintendo references, of course. As a sequel, the game promises more of everything: more characters, more items, more assist trophies, more stuff to collect… the problem is that in some cases Smash on the 3DS feels like a lesser game than the ones that’ve come before it. Make no mistake, the game is still an incredibly enjoyable time, especially with a few friends, but the series makes the jump to the 3DS with a couple of compromises.
