Why are we excited about these New 3DS packaging shots?

An informal poll of the Destructoid staff reveals that we're all senselessly excited for this New 3DS. It doesn't make sense. None of us need one. We should be mad at Nintendo for having us wanting another iteration. But we'r...

Nintendo Download: Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call demo

Japanese Super Smash Bros. 3DS commercial is cute & pastel

The N64 Super Smash Bros. commercial will probably stick with me more than any other TV commercial for a videogame, but this 3DS-focused Smash Bros. commercial from Japan is nice in its own right.

You got chocolate in my peanut butter! You got peanut butter in my chocolate! 

Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are great. Personally, my favorite part is the edge, as long as you still get a little bit of peanut butter along with it. It is sort of annoying though when you peel off the wrapper and it takes a good chunk of chocolate with it, though. If you don't like peanut butter OR chocolate, I can't imagine that you'd want to indulge in a Reese's. If you don't dislike either one though, you easily understand why Reese's is some of the best candy ever.

So anyway, Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney...

Opening a treasure chest as Ganondorf felt wrong photo
Opening a treasure chest as Ganondorf felt wrong
by Jordan Devore

During a Nintendo showcase event at PAX Prime, I wanted to say "screw it" and just play Hyrule Warriors for an hour (or more) but with only two demo stations available and lots of other nice games media types eager to check it out above other titles, that wasn't an option.

I also wanted to play as Midna because she looked badass in her character trailer, slapping fools left and right -- but that wasn't an option either, damn it. We were encouraged to try pummeling crowds of enemies as Ganondorf, what with him being new and all. Okay, sure. He's cool too.
