Using your 3DS to put boobs on everyone and everything: The professional photographer’s guide (Nintendo 3DS)

Posted on March 25, 2011

So, 3D on the 3DS then. It’s good. Not just in games though. Oh no, some of the very most fun stuff so far is to be found lurking amongst the plethora of in-built 3D toys, games and general tools of tomfoolery coded into the handheld’s dashboard. Nintendo really wants to show this tech off in the coolest, most imaginatively Nintendo-y ways possible.

We however, want to shoe it off in the most GamesRadar-y way possible. So we’re going to show you how to put boobs on anything you want. Anything. Actual 3D boobs. Ladies and gentlemen, the evolution of video game breastery has taken a quantum leap forward this day.

Konami announces Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights for 3DS

Posted on February 17, 2011

Konami has announced a new Professor Layt — oh sorry, that’s something else. Nope, this is Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights, a new game for the 3DS about a French archaeologist that has nothing to do with any series by Level-5 for Nintendo handhelds. It features Dr. Lautrec and his young assistant, Sophie, exploring 19th century Paris while solving puzzles and deciphering riddles, some of which will take advantage of the 3DS’ extra displayed dimension.

The game also has a four-player Treasure Hunt mode to go along with a story that pits Lautrec and Sophie against the Knights of the Iron Mask, a shadowy group which will stop at nothing to hide the secrets of the Mask of Mirac — no wait, that’s something else again. At any rate, the game is due out sometime this summer, and until then you can check the screenshots below for any similarities to other 3DS titles.

Nintendogs + Cats 3DS breeds revealed, tears Joystiq staff apart

Posted on February 12, 2011

Civil war has broken out among three distinct factions of the Joystiq staff, each swearing allegiance to one of the three different versions of Nintendogs + Cats that are due out alongside the 3DS on March 27. The rifts were formed after Nintendo updated the games’ official Japanese site, revealing the different breeds contained within each cartridge — little did they know that by doing so, they’d be forging hostilities between a group of online writers and, more notably, best friends.

Look, we hate to make you choose sides, but we need to know where you stand. Check out the breeds below, and sound off in the comments. Unless, of course, you don’t choose to join the glorious army of Shiba Inu and Friends. If that’s the case, you can keep your stupid opinions to yourself.

Cave Story remake announced for 3DS (Cave Story 3D)

Posted on February 12, 2011

It’s official: Cave Story, the 2D indie darling that started life as a free PC game in 2004, is headed to the 3DS. And not as a downloadable, depth-of-field-enabled version of itself, either – Cave Story 3D, announced today by publisher NIS America, will be a full-fledged remake of the original, with new content, character designs and fully 3D visuals. To get the full story, GR editors Mikel Reparaz and Brett Elston were privileged to sit down with Cave Story’s creator, Daisuke “Pixel” Amaya (who developed the original by himself, and whose website has lots of cool, free stuff), and its producer/music director Tyrone Rodriguez, to talk about Cave Story, the 3DS and what exactly drives a man to spend five years creating a massive, retro-styled adventure…

Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars for 3DS detailed by creative lead

Posted on January 26, 2011

As TinyCartridge pointed out in a pair of recent posts about Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars, the seemingly high profile 3DS title has been barely discussed by publisher Ubisoft. Beyond gathering together all of the game’s assets thus far (seen here), TinyCartridge fleshes out GRSW’s tactical, turn-based gameplay. Better yet: The game’s creative lead, Julian Gollop — lauded developer of X-Com: UFO Defense and Laser Squad Nemesis, among others — gets all up in the comments section, speaking on the game in far more detail. He confirmed that GRSW will not feature multiplayer outside of “hotseat” play, nor will it support any StreetPass features (i.e., a data exchange between two “sleeping” 3DS units).

“The tactical system, and the way the weapons work, have a bit more of an Advance Wars feel,” Gollop described. “You have six characters you control, each with unique abilities and equipment. You can level them up, gaining abilities and more equipment options.”

“The battlefield is very detailed,” he continued, “with cover effects, and elevation having significant tactical effects. You need to capture ‘command flags’ to collect ‘command points’ which are spent on various powers, including calling in a massive airstrike. Each character gains power points to launch special power attacks — super shot, rapid strike, wide impact — depending on the weapon types used.” Sounds interesting!

Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars will reportedly launch in Europe on March 25 alongside the 3DS itself, though no North American release date has been given.

Dead or Alive gets even sexier on 3DS with Metroid stage starring a grotesque purple dragon (Dead or Alive Dimensions)

Posted on January 20, 2011

Dead or Alive has always had us covered on the ‘piledrivers’, ‘silicone implants’ and ‘kicking folk through plate glass windows’ front, but you know what the series has always been missing? Fire-breathing space monstrosities and intergalactic bounty hunters who can compress themselves down into tiny metal balls. Thankfully, the upcoming Dead or Alive: Dimensions on 3DS looks set to rectify this omission with a special Metroid-themed level to get your bikini pummelling on. …

3DS eShop detailed: Virtual Console, DSiWare, demos, and the absence of ‘Points’

Posted on January 20, 2011
3DS eShop

Along with a push into the third-dimension, Nintendo appears to be using the 3DS to make a stronger push into the digitally distributed space on its handhelds. The DSi (and its big brother, the DSi XL) both started the company down the path popularized by Apple’s hyperkinetic App Store – and emulated by everyone from Sony to Google to Microsoft. The 3DS will support DSiWare (whose name was, perhaps, just a smidge shortsighted) and, while Nintendo of America Product Marketing Manager Bill Trinen couldn’t provide any details during an interview today with Joystiq, he did confirm that users will be able to transfer any DSiWare games they’ve already purchased to the 3DS. “There will be a function that will allow you to transfer games from your Nintendo DSi to the 3DS,” Trinen said. “As we go into greater detail about the Shop, we’ll go into detail about that specific function.”

But 3DS isn’t just supporting what the DSi already supports; Nintendo is taking several cues from its Wii-based Shop Channel and Nintendo Channel playbooks, bringing Virtual Console to the handheld market in the form of Game Boy and Game Boy Color games, availability of demos, the ability to rate games, and even check out screenshots and videos for retail games. After losing backwards compatibility with Game Boy games with the DSi, we’re especially happy about having that feature back in the 3DS; however, it won’t be coming to the DSi. “Those will be on the eShop,” Trinen told us, “which is specific to the 3DS.” But what about the other carts the DSi design sent to retro heaven? Trinen says Game Boy Advance support isn’t part of this announcement. “Basically we’re focusing on Game Boy and Game Boy Color. If we decide to introduce [GBA games] at a later date, we’d announce later if we did.”

Japanese gamers reportedly sickened by 3DS at recent event, GamesRadar reserving judgement ’til tomorrow (Nintendo 3DS)

Posted on January 18, 2011

That’s the word from a Japanese magazine report anyway, relating apparent consumer surveys from Nintendo’s 3DS event in Tokyo last week. Dizziness and fatigue are the main symptoms mentioned by the report, with some players claiming to have suffered them after 10 minutes.

We are, however, a little dubious of these claims at the moment. Click on and we’ll tell you why you shouldn’t worry about a Nintendo-induced puke carnival just yet.

Nintendo 3DS Sizzle Reel video shows off the amazing line-up for 2011

Posted on January 10, 2011
It may be a sizzle reel, but the 3DS line-up is still enticing as hell.

As if Nintendo needed to hype people up any more, the company held the Nintendo World event this past weekend which was open to the public.  With the Nintendo DS being the most popular handheld on the market, it’s pretty safe that the millions of people who own the DS will pick up the 3DS since it’s games line-up almost surpasses what the Wii has this year in terms of overall appeal. But even if the Nintendo 3DS will be another money printing machine for Nintendo, it’s always good to hype things up hence why we had the Nintendo World event.

Want a 3DS? Now’s the best time to trade in your old model (Nintendo DS)

Posted on January 06, 2011

It’s one of the hardest things a gamer ever has to do. Not everyone can afford to buy a new console on top of the one they already have, so at some point you’re going to have to sell up and upgrade. Case in point: Nintendo 3DS. If you’re going to be able afford one on launch day, you’ll have to sell your DS… like now. I’m not going to pretend I’m in any position to give financial advice, but I can tell you what I did and why I did it.

Iwata says 3DS will beat 3DTVs to mass market

Posted on November 10, 2010

A lot of the scuttlebutt we’ve been hearing about 3D and video games has been centered around 3DTVs (and this week’s Call of Duty: Black Ops release has been impressing some folks with 3D-enabled televisions), but Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata says that if anything ushers 3D out of the movie theaters and into the household, it’ll be the 3DS. He told the company’s investors recently that “people in Hollywood currently do not believe that 3D television sets will be able to spread into ordinary households with rapid speed. I have the impression that they see Nintendo 3DS as a strong candidate to become the very first 3D device to be able to spread into the mass market in massive volumes.”

Really, the president of Nintendo thinks the 3DS will be popular? No kidding, tell us another one. But Iwata also said that developers around the world have shown “much stronger interest” in the 3DS than its old dimensionally-challenged cousin, the regular Nintendo DS, did at its own launch. So maybe by next March, we’ll all be seeing things in 3D at home. Wait … without glasses, we mean. No, wait … aw, you know.
