Hulu Plus coming to 3DS, Wii; more features announced for 3DS

Nintendo has made a big, if unsurprising, announcement: Hulu Plus is coming to the 3DS and the Wii. Hulu Plus – which costs $7.99 a month – is host to dozens of current and popular seasons of television shows from all the major channels.

In addition, Nintendo also announced some major additions to the 3DS. 3DS owners will now be able to record up to 10 minutes of 3D videos, opening up venues for all manner of creative endeavors – including 3D stop-motion animation videos. There are also new musical artists coming to Nintendo Video, including Foster the People’s “Don’t Stop (Color on the Walls),” as well as a new animated 3D video from Dreamworks called “Thriller” which features characters from Shrek. New puzzles will also be available in the Mii Plaza, and a new dungeon added to Find Mii.

Reggie Fils-Aime, President of Nintendo of America, said, “Nintendo 3DS continues to evolve with great new features and functions designed to reinforce its position as a premiere entertainment device. All of these features, in addition to great upcoming games like Pokémon Rumble Blast on October 24, Super Mario 3D Land on November 13 and Mario Kart 7 on December 4, make Nintendo 3DS a smart gift option this holiday season.”

Still want more? Nintendo also announced four new games – Freakyforms, Pushmo, Swapnote, and Dillon’s Rolling Western. The system update to the 3DS will be happening at the end of November, and Hulu Plus will be coming “soon.” Hit the jump for a complete description of the four new games. (more…)

New Releases: Battlefield 3, Kirby’s Return to Dream Land, Pokemon Rumble Blast, More

The war begins this week as DICE’s Battlefield 3 will be published by EA on the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. The game will have two weeks by itself on store shelves before Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 returns fire on November 8. Have you chosen a side yet?

Also available this week is a Kirby game that we all thought was cancelled back in the GameCube days, Kirby’s Return to Dream Land. It’ll be available on the Wii this week, and yes, that’s Kirby wearing a Link hat and wielding a sword that looks suspiciously like the Master Sword. Nintendo will also unleash the melee-battling of Pokemon Rumble Blast on the 3DS.

A ton of smaller games will also make it onto store shelves this week including Namco Bandai’s Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi (PS3, Xbox 360), Sega’s The House of the Dead: Overkill – Extended Cut (PS3), Disney’s Disney Universe (PC, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360), Atlus’s The Cursed Crusade (PS3, Xbox 360) and Telltale’s Back to the Future (PS3, Wii).

Check out the full list of the rest of this week’s new releases after the break. (more…)

Tetris: Axis announced for 3DS

Get ready for Tetris like you’ve never seen it before! Tetris: Axis will be released on the 3DS on October 2, bringing a whole new level to a game we all grew up on.

The game features up to 20 different game modes as well as multiplayer battles – up to eight players can fight each other, even if only one has the game. There will also be functionality with both AR cards and SpotPass.

Tetris Axis will kick off the 3DS’ fall lineup, and will be followed by Pokemon Rumble Blast on October 24, Super Mario 3D Land in November, and Mario Kart 7 in December. Hopefully somewhere in there we’ll get an announcement for Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D as well.

Pokemon Rumble Blast toying with your 3DS October 24

Well, that was fast. Pokemon Rumble Blast, the sequel to the excellent WiiWare hit Pokemon Rumble, will arrive on the Nintendo 3DS on October 24. The game features the same intuitive controls and real-time gameplay as its predecessor, as you control toy pokemon scouring a variety of levels and eventually fighting a boss, a giant toy pokemon. Multiplayer features include both local wireless and StreetPass. Passing by a fellow rumbler will allow you to battle their toy pokemon as well as check out their Mii.

When one door closes, another one opens for the 3DS it would seem, let’s hope this game is as addictive as the original Rumble.
