New Nintendo 3DS

Lifespeed is coming to the 3DS, and Nintendaan has provided some direct-feed footage of the space racing game. Check it out below:

Nintendo Impact Gaming has given us a lengthy look at Lifespeed with 23 minutes of off-screen gameplay. Take a look at the footage below.

Lifespeed will be live on the 3DS eShop on February 2, and we now know how much free space you’ll need to download  the game. The game will require 2,006 blocks, which clocks in at around 250 MB. 


Best Buy is now taking pre-orders for the recently announced Pikachu New 3DS XL for North America. You can reserve it here. GameStop apparently sold out already, so it looks like options are already beginning to grow thin.

We knew Lifespeed was coming soon, but it’s probably releasing sooner than everyone expected. After hearing that the racer would be launching in February just a couple of days ago, Wee Man Studios has now followed up with news about a specific date. Lifespeed will be out worldwide on February 2.

Screenshots and art from the game are in the gallery below. We also have a fact sheet with extra information.
