Licensing companies Technology Properties Limited LLC, Phoenix Digital Solutions LLC, and Patriot Scientific Corporation had a case against Nintendo for infringing on three of their patents relating to processors and system clocks back in the middle of 2012. The International Trade Commission has confirmed that the 3DS and DSi do not infringe on the patents. Phew!

"We are very pleased with the commission’s determination, which confirmed the judge’s finding that Nintendo’s products do not infringe the asserted patent," said Richard Medway, Nintendo of America’s vice president and deputy general counsel. "Nintendo’s track record demonstrates that we vigorously defend patent lawsuits, including cases in the ITC, when we believe we have not infringed another party’s patent. Nintendo continues to develop unique and innovative products while respecting the intellectual property rights of others."

Featuring both local and online multiplayer, as well as an 11-stage campaign, the project seems fairly ambitious for the handheld, and as you'd expect, there are mixed results. While multiplayer turned out well enough, the campaign is a mess.more
