Hey, Nintendo. Listen up. I'm going to need you to stop releasing new 2DS colors for just one moment, please. Because I haven't gotten the Peach Pink 2DS just yet, and now you're showing off this gorgeous color scheme. I coul...

Apparently, Tomodachi Life is for little girls

Still not sure if you're going to pick up Tomodachi Life? That Nintendo Direct video really sold it to me, so I recommend you watch that if you need further convincing. Or do you prefer cringeworthy trailers for tweens? If t...

Guide: How to use the Pokemon Bank and Poke Transporter photo
Guide: How to use the Pokemon Bank and Poke Transporter
by Jordan Devore

Originally set for release in North America in late December, the Pokemon Bank and Poke Transporter apps have only today become available for download from the 3DS eShop. (Europe, Australia, and Japan have had their launches already). While heavy network traffic pushed back the release last year, that doesn't seem to be an issue now, thank goodness.

We thought it would be useful to come up with a quick guide to the Bank and Transporter so you know what you're getting into, what with this technically being a paid service and all. The process of transferring your Pokemon collection into X and Y is quite a bit more convoluted than I was anticipating, and I was expecting a tedious process to begin with knowing Game Freak's history with these transfer tools. At least there are no minigames this time.

Luigi 2DS spotted! It looks better than the Luigi 3DS

Kotaku received some pictures of what appears to be a Luigi-themed 2DS. I want it. It's a simple white with green trimmings (buttons and so on) and a Luigi etched into the back. It's a lot cleaner than the cool, but busy Luig...

This is what it costs to fix a broken Nintendo 2DS screen

The Nintendo 2DS is a sturdy little piece of machinery. It eschews the gossamer hinges of its stereoscopic predecessor, and in their place vaunts a strong, unified, monolithic frame. Though abandoning the clamshell design mak...
