In this photo provided by Nintendo of America, Hollywood Records recording artist Olivia Holt helps young fans get dressed up as their favorite Disney characters at the Enchanted Ball Event for the Disney Magical World 2 game on October 1st at Nintendo NY.


The magical event celebrated the upcoming launch of the game for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on October 14th, and here is some more photos supplied to us by big 'N' from their special magical event that got everyone so hyped for their new 3DS game, even getting people to travel all the way to the event just so they can dress up as their favorite Disney character and its still a whole month to finish before Halloween, but then Nintendo has a way to bring out the fun in all ages from youth to old when it comes to gaming!...

One of the most rarest of Pokemon is up for grabs soon, if you fast enough to grab an code before they are all gone!

Serial code distribution details for GameStop’s October 2016 Volcanion event have released into the wild for Trainers in the United States.


Pokemon Go has been so popular that it has caused a bit increase in the interest of playing old-school Pokemon games again on dedicated devices like the popular Nintendo 3DS system, as such big 'N' has released a few new Pokemon games in 3DS cartridge format, but they on purpose left out some of the most rarest of Pokemon monsters, to allow you some fun in capturing the special codes you need from your local video gaming store, so you can input them during this special event and add them to your collection.

The Japanese cliffs which see dozens of tragic deaths each year are experiencing improvements thanks to Pokemon GO.

Pokemon GO has seen its fair share of negative news lately, from lawsuits to fatal traffic accidents. But we’re going to share some good news today – specifically how Pokemon GO is preventing suicides.


Sadly, the Japanese have a culture where it is basically OK to commit suicide if live has gotten you down and you can't find a way out, and alot of places in Japan, people love to kill themselves, but they normally only do so when its peaceful and quiet, but now thanks to millions of Pokemon running around, and rare ones hiding out in those peaceful and quiet spots, the areas that desperate people go to end their sad lives are now to busy with happy trainers playing on their cellphones trying to capture Pokemon in those areas, so it has caused a dropped in the overall...

Nintendo Classic Mini: Family Computer has 30 games, including Japanese exclusives.

Hoping to turn golden oldies into silver, Nintendo Co. is to relaunch its hit Famicom gaming console, 33 years after the device first gripped the nation. The new version has a similar appearance but is significantly smaller than the original.


Earlier today, we reported on the official PR hype from big 'N' regarding their upcoming Nintendo Mini Classic for the American market, but that is so lame and unhip for us retro gamers, it is much better to import one of these official babies from Nintendo Japan as its an Mini Famicom complete with its own selection of 30 games and all the same features as the Americanized NES Mini, just not as cool to play on or to impress your friends over this holiday season....

Just Dance is coming next year to NX.

Nintendo has clammed up about the Nintendo NX, but thankfully, the world has Yves Guillemot.


Big 'N' may be keeping its mouth shut about their upcoming NX console, but at least UbiSoft is talking about it, and again have mentioned how wonderful the new system is, and how it will change gaming forever as we now currently know it, and will cause Nintendo in the end to be the #1 household name again when it comes to talking about Video Gaming devices.

More hints that an NX unveiling is coming up very soon, as artwork for an upcoming game appear online!

Ubisoft France had tweeted a while ago to pay close attention to developer Michel Amcel for some stating “Michel Ancel has an Instagram account and we advise you to follow closely..." --- And now finally something has magically appeared!


It has been rumored before one of the first studios to have an NX development kit, was Ubisoft France, and they have been secretly working on the new Beyond Good 2 game, but not much is known about it, except that its also rumored to be an NX Launch Title, and possible 'exclusive' one as Nintendo is rumored to be funding the development, but now we get to see a bit of action, as one of the game designers have dropped recently online some of his artwork for the game.

First Rule of 'Fight Club', is DO NOT talk about 'Fight Club' - And that is what Nintendo is doing with NX!

The Nintendo NX is set to arrive in 2017, and the latest rumors point to the company next discussing it at one of its special Nintendo Direct events. In the meantime? The company doesn't want to talk about it.


Big 'N' is being a big bully regarding NX, if you want to discuss it they cut you off from all press and coverage and interviews, just like 'Fight Club', the movie, you know it exists, but the first rule is you can't discuss it, but at least one interview'er was able to get it out of the big bad bullies, that when Nintendo is ready to show the world what NX is all about they will be doing it as usual like been predicted before by 'Nintendo Direct', but sadly no hints on when that will occur, but normally they inform the press within 24 to 48 hours before the...

Xbox One A Very Distant Third

While the PlayStation 4 is completely crushing the Wii U in most regions, that has not been the case in Japan. The Wii U had actually been managing to be the top selling current-generation home console in the region for a while, though now it has finally been overtaken by the PS4.


Japan is finally becoming the land of Sony again, for years Nintendo was the king, but with the launch of the PS4, it has quickly regain the throne, and of course Microsoft is still busy sweeping the floors in the mailroom, wondering if they will ever move up the ladder.

Not at all cumbersome, honest! - A Must-Have-Hack for all those out there still playing Pokemon Go!

Seasoned Pokémon GO players will no doubt have their own techniques and strategies for catching as many monsters as possible in a typical 24 hours, but for the average person, a little help is sometimes needed. That's where Ben Heck's amazing "Pokémon GO Survival Kit" comes in.


Finally, a good video to show you how to survival out in the wild, when you playing Pokemon Go, and done by none-other-than the world famous Ben Heck, hacker/modding of gaming systems and devices, and you can see from the following video he is sure come along way from his roots, but still worth watching.

This Broken-Down Van is a Birthday Dream come true for Retro Nintendo 64 Lovers!

September 26th, 2016 marks the 20th birthday of the Nintendo 64 console...well, its North American birthday anyway. Despite launching three days earlier than originally planned, with only two games to choose from, the console was a massive commercial and critical success, which had a lot to do with its library of wonderful games that quickly started to come out after the launch.


So here we are 20 years later, and hoping that Nintendo would had been nice enough to use this special time to announce their upcoming NX hybrid system, but instead nothing, so to cheer us up, we decided to take a look at how a true Nintendo fan honors the 64 by turning his old broken-down van into a dream come true for retro classic gaming lovers.

'w64e10' opens a new hole in the normally closed Xbox One Console's Ecosystem!

In previous generations, if you wanted to emulate one game console on another, you'd generally have to use some sort of jailbreak or hack to install unauthorized homebrew apps on the system. Today, thanks in part to Microsoft's Universal Windows Platform, you can download a Nintendo 64 emulator to your Xbox One directly from Microsoft's official store.


A couple of weeks ago, we reported on the NESBox multi-console emulator getting approved for usage on the Xbox One, but it didn't last long before it was unapproved and never having a chance to appear in the Xbox Store for actual downloading, but this time around the 'w64e10' has made the jump from being a Windows 10 app to being now available for the normally locked-down console, thanks to a new app extension feature that costs $10, allowing you to use it on both...

NX System, is made up of 3 Parts - Portable Screen w/ Detachable Controllers - Docking Station - Performance Module

Not long after it was reported that Foxconn Electronics has started trialling Nintendo NX production, it appears that an employee that works for the Taiwanese electronics manufacturer has sketched the separate components that make the dedicated game platform.


Yet another big rumor has been started, soon after the news that Foxconn has started trial production of the final retail NX system, an Chinese Forum Thread appeared for a little while before magically getting deleted, that details out what the NX system really is, the biggest update on this new rumor, is that there is THIRD PART to the system with its own battery making it portable also, and PERFORMANCE MODULE, which has an HDD slot, Cartridge slot, and more CPU/GPU Horsepower that the smaller...

Report claims big 'N' is telling retailers to place their orders now for Holiday stock of Wii U, as that is it!

As the Nintendo NX launch is coming up in Spring 2017, Nintendo has finally moved to put the brakes on the Wii U console, with retailers told to put in their last orders for new shipments now before end of September, because after that is no more Wii U's.


It seems that Nintendo has decided to call it quits on the Wii U console early, with production ending and stores told to place their last orders for new stock, but not to worry as some retailers like Amazon have reported they have enough stock to last another 5 years! :)
