The Life and Probable Death of Nintendo’s Cartoon Avatar :: Games :: Features :: Nintendo :: Paste

Over a decade after their invention, is the end nigh for Nintendo’s iconic cartoon avatars? Miitopia comes out today, and though it purports to be a whimsical RPG starring you and your friends, it feels more like a portable Valhalla with a MSRP of $39.99. The 3DS is over seven years old, but with one last hardware refresh in the books (the Nintendo 2DSXL, out now), it will continue to be a prominent part of …

The Nintendo 2DS XL’s biggest flaw’s a not-so-big stylus

The New Nintendo 2DS XL is in stores today, and it’s a great revision on what’s already a great handheld. There’s one big — or, really, small — catch with it, though: The stylus is bizarrely small. Maybe this is a nitpick, especially being that I’m someone with self-described “big, meaty claws.” But compared to the styluses on the original 3DS, the Nintendo 3DS XL and most other models, the 2DS XL’s stylus is almost …

Sleepless in Seattle: A newborn, Nintendo and neighborhood make a full life for MIS alum – 2017 – News – School of Business Administration

If you want to keep up with Tramale Turner, you’ll need a dose of caffeine and your running shoes. “I like to live my life staying engaged in every moment and ready for any new opportunities,” says Turner (MIS ’00, MBA ’01).

How to Voice Chat on Your Nintendo Switch (With a Phone)

Nintendo has been woefully behind the times with online functionality, and the Nintendo Switch continues the trend. You can play games online with friends easily enough, but coordination and communication is still separate from the system itself. Nintendo offers the Switch Online mobile app, which coordinates voice chat through your phone with an in-game lobby system that lets you talk to your friends using a headset. But I had mixed results with a wireless earpiece, …

Capcom Prepares to Bring More Games to Nintendo Switch

With the Nintendo Switch approaching five million units sold, it’s safe to say the newest Nintendo hybrid-console is a success so far. A big factor in that success has been a steady stream of heavy hitters right out of the gate. We’ve already seen games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe release to critical acclaim. More recently, we’ve seen a new IP in ARMS pass the one …

The Nintendo Switch virtual console can’t come soon enough

Four months into the Nintendo Switch’s lifespan, and we still don’t know what’s up with the system’s “virtual console” retro game store. Nintendo has said that classic games like Dr. Mario and Super Mario Bros. 3 will be part of its upcoming online subscription service, set to launch next year, complete with new online-enabled features. But as for a dedicated shop to buy retro titles — a highlight of Nintendo hardware since the original Wii …

[Image: Nintendo] In Japan, the lines for the Nintendo Switch have been hell. The way that retailers are deciding who gets the consoles just caused big woes for one of Japan’s most famous electronics chains.

Overcooked on Nintendo Switch is ‘a match made in heaven’

It’s a classic display of British modesty to accept an award and say, immediately, that you really didn’t expect to win. But when madcap multiplayer cooking game Overcooked nabbed two Bafta Games Awards in April — including the coveted British Game prize — its creators, Oli De-Vine and Phil Duncan, aka Ghost Town Games, seemed truly unprepared. Their acceptance speeches were charmingly awkward (“This is just silly now,” De-Vine remarked on their second trip to …

The curious case of the 3DS, the device too successful for Nintendo to kill – Entertainment

In retrospect, it probably wasn’t the best idea for Nintendo to name its new flagship handheld device after its least important feature. When the venerable Japanese gaming company unveiled the 3DS, the successor to its wildly popular DS handheld, in 2010, it retained the physical aesthetic of the DS — dual screens (one with touch functionality) in an attractive clamshell design — while adding more processing power. But the marquee new feature was stereoscopic 3D, which lets characters …

New Nintendo 2DS XL: The Kotaku Review

If you don’t care about 3D anymore—and even Nintendo’s interest in it seems to be fading—then the New Nintendo 2DS XL is the absolute best model in Nintendo’s line of portable gaming hardware. It’s a shame the company makes adding new devices such a burden. Nintendo’s nomenclature for handhelds has turned into alphabet soup, as if the company puts a bunch of adjectives and numerals into a hat, picks out three, and that’s the next …
