New 3DS XL Colors in Japan

These new 3DS XL colors are only available in Japan as “limited pack,” releases. They only come bundled with AR cards and a 4GB SD card, but the hot orange and turquoise inside of the black interior looks super nice. Seriously, just look at that sexy finish. AND the stylus matches. Check out more on Nintendo’s site.

Blurry/Leaked Images of Attack on Titan 3DS Game

In the October issue of Kodansha’s Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine, previews of screenshots from the Nintendo 3DS action game inspired by Hajime Isayama’s Attack on Titan anime/manga were revealed. And holy shit is that exciting to hear.

The game will put players in a story mode, in which Eren and other humans will battle against other Titan giants. The magazine explains that “3D Maneuver Action,” will give the game a  scenario in which players will have to rescue captured soldiers and cut off a Titans' arms before they are eaten.

Kotaku’s got some leaked images (above) that look kinda terrible for a 3DS game. We’ll see how it ends up after the game actually drops…

3DS XLOL: Circle Pad Pro XL Coming
The fact that Nintendo announced a redesigned 3DS wasn’t a surprise. But the fact that they fattened it up rather than slimmed it down certainly was, especially considering they didn’t add in a second thumb pad. Don’t worry, though. You can buy that seperately. Nintendo have revealed that they will be releasing an XL compatible Circle Pad this year.
Normally, the cranky old gamer in me would come out and say, “They should just include it with the system.” But since so few games actually use the second nub-thing, I don’t really care.

3DS Makes Like a Nurple, Gets Purple
Remember when the 3DS was first being shown off and there were all sorts of awesome colors? The one that really caught my eye was the purple one. Yes, purple is for dudes too. Nintendo will be releasing the purple 3DS for reals on May 20. If there was more than one game I want to play for the 3DS (Super Mario 3D Land) I’d totally buy this.

A Little Bit on the Slime Side: Oh my fucking slurp. If I wasn’t sure this limited edition Dragon Quest 3DS would go for nearly double it’s sticker price on eBay and import shops, I’d throw down my money right now. It will come in a bundle along with the 3DS remake of Dragon Quest Monsters for about $310 on May 31, 2012.

A Little Bit On The Snazzy 3DS Side: Japan is getting this gorgeous limited edition Kingdom Hearts DDD 3DS. Lucky jerks.

It looks a lot like the patterned Kingdom Hearts DSi released in Japan back in 2009, but the system’s glossy finish and the magenta crown give it a lot more “pop.” I would actually  consider buying this — if I was a dude resigned to buying all the expensive Kingdom Hearts junk out there, and if the console weren’t region-locked.

Nintendo Streaming 3DS Event @ 11PM Eastern

I’ve been trying to go to bed a little earlier lately, but I’ll be up late tonight. Nintendo’s pre-TGS event will be streaming starting at 11PM Eastern tonight. The event is taking place in Japan, also known as 13 hours into the future. Will they have any surprises in store other than the nub? Watch to find out! If our embedded stream goes down, hit up the source link for the official stream.

So we put a portable in your portable

It’s been over 20 years and everyone still loves the Game Boy. But now the carcasses of the dead portable are becoming the carapaces of their little brothers. Personally, I wouldn’t put my shiny new handheld in one of those to get all banged up, but it looks cool anyway.

Albotas Went to the Zelda Party: Part I

I freakin’ love NYC. There’s always something awesome to do. When we went to check out Rainbow City, we found out Nintendo World would be hosting a Zelda party the following day. The party was meant to celebrate the launch of the 3DS version of Ocarina of Time.

I was worried that I’d look like a kid-toucher, what with being a guy in his 20s at a Nintendo party. Luckily, the place was packed kids and adults alike (way over the fire limit, by the way). When we stepped into the store, we were handed a scavenger list of Skullturas scattered throughout the two stories. Some were surprisingly hard to find. After filling out the list, you could drop it into a treasure chest to enter a raffle for some Zelda merch.

There were some other cool Zelda-themed happenings, too. A handful of cardboard standees were placed here and there, replicas of the Master Shield, Deku Shield and potions were behind the bottom floor’s register, and a giant triforce stood on the top floor.

Places should do this more often. I got to shop and have a ton of adventurey fun. Be sure to come back tomorrow for Albotas Goes to the Zelda Party: Part II. We’ll have a video of the raffle up for your viewing pleasure. I’d post it right now but it’s taking forever to render.

Playboy Headed to 3DS
Playboy announced today that they will be releasing 3D pornography for Nintendo’s new 3DS handheld. “Best of” cartridges will be available online and in select retailers sometime this summer (rated AO). Playboy is currently working with Nintendo to establish a download service that will be inaccessible to DS owners under the age of 17. Nintendo allegedly first shot down the idea, but later realized that this “new dimension of adult entertainment” could boost handheld sales in the 18 to 35 year-old male demographic.
