The New 3DS will be more powerful than its predecessor thanks to a beefed up CPU. It also seems that the system could offer extra RAM and VRAM.

As reported by 3dbrew:

Based on disassembly of certain sysmodules for code added/changed with in the 8.0.0-18 update, it appears that the “New 3DS” has the following changes:

They extended FCRAM from 128MB to 256MB.
They added another VRAM (?) of 4MB.

Nintendo lays off 320 staffers in Europe

General Images Of Nintendo Ahead Of Earnings Posted 2 hours ago
By (@NE_Brian)

In June, there was talk of Nintendo of Europe laying off 130 full-time employees. An additional 190 staffers have since been confirmed to be receiving the same treatment. These people come from Nintendo’s Germany-based localization department by way of a leasing agency. Kotaku points out, “Though technically those 190 people were temporary employees, in practice, they all worked exclusively for Nintendo, and many of them had been working there for years”.

All of these layoffs combine to affect 320 employees. They will all be gone by August 31.

Nintendo said in a statement today:

As previously communicated in June 2014, approximately 130 permanent employees will be released by Nintendo of Europe (Germany) at the end of August 2014 as part of a set of measures to better enable the European business to adapt to the rapidly changing business environment.

As a separate measure, Nintendo of Europe is reorganizing its European Localization Development (ELD) department, where it currently uses a number of temporary agency workers in translation and testing activities, in order to increase flexibility and cost-efficiency in the long-term. It is intended that there will be an increase in outsourcing future translation and test activities to third-party companies on an as-needed basis, and very sadly this has meant having ended the contracts of 190 temporary agency workers, who were formally notified of this decision in June 2014.

The Internet browser in New 3DS systems come with a pre-installed filter which limits what websites can be visited. Users can immediately turn it off for 30 yen ($0.29) by registering a valid credit card.

Nintendo says that the filter will be used to “prevent children from looking at harmful websites” on the New 3DS. The fee, which goes hand in hand with credit card registration, is necessary so that children cannot disable the filter without their parents’ consent.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS – items screenshots and details

Smash Ball
The Smash Ball is a mysterious sphere that floats around the stage. It will break once it takes enough damage. The player who delivers the last hit will be able to use a powerful move called a Final Smash, but only once.

Fire Bar
The Fire Bar from the Super Mario series has been transformed into an attack item! Hit an enemy with one of these and he or she will take damage, but every time you do so, the length of the weapon gets reduced little by little.

Steel Diver
This is a projectile weapon in the shape of an advanced submarine. It fires small, hard-to-see torpedoes that initially move slowly before speeding up.

Fairy Bottle
Picking up this item will heal 100 points of damage for a player–as long as the player was already over 100%. If a player doesn’t have enough damage, the Fairy Bottle has no effect, so the item’s usefulness depends greatly on the situation.

Super Leaf
Picking up this item will cause your fighter to sprout raccoon ears and a tail.

Grab this and chuck it at an opponent. If it hits, the bees will swarm around your enemy and sting him or her for damage. However, if you hit one on the ground, the hive will shatter and the bees will come after you! Be careful around these things!

Home-Run Bat
With this item you can unleash a series of ultra-powerful smash attacks. Even if your opponent is at 0% damage, a good hit with this can launch them way off the stage. Swing away!

Bullet Bill
Use this item to transform into Bullet Bill and shoot straight at the enemy. Your Circle Pad or Control Stick input at the moment you trigger the item will determine your launch direction, after which you’ll fly in a straight line.

Once it takes enough damage, a Cucco becomes enraged and calls its feathered friends in for backup, attacking the last player that struck it. As you’re intently attacking an opponent, be careful not to inadvertently hit a Cucco!

This sacred device comes in three parts. Gather them all to assemble the weapon and begin firing high-powered beams that ignore fighters’ shields!
