I Used The New 3DS On A Train And Didn't Want To Throw Up

Years ago, I mastered the art of playing Nintendo 3DS — finding and holding my head in the perfect position to peer through the console’s 3D parallax barrier display and drink in its stereoscopic worlds. I’m so proud of this skill that I even use it to inflate my ego: yes, I am the best at looking at screens. Yesterday, that ego was destroyed. I used Nintendo’s New 3DS XL to play Super Smash Bros. on a train ride so nauseatingly bumpy that my talents were useless. And it worked perfectly anyhow.

This Fake Famicom Controller Does Everything But Play Video Games

Despite their games being incredibly outdated by today’s standards, anyone who grew up in the ’80s has a perpetual soft spot for their first video game console, which, depending on where you’re from, is either Nintendo’s NES or Famicom. So while this card-reading portable charger from Datel isn’t particularly outstanding when it comes to features, it doesn’t matter, because we’re all going to buy one anyways since it’s shaped like a classic Nintendo Famicom controller.

A Working NES Inside An Ecto-1 Is Everything Great About The '80s

Got half a grand burning a hole in your pocket, a soft spot for classic gaming, and a love of Ray Parker Jr? Then eBay seller ultimatecustoms1982 has a convenient way to scratch all three of those itches at once with this custom-made original NES console shoe-horned inside of a die-cast replica of the Ghostbusters’ Ecto-1.


It Took Three Years, But The Nintendo 3DS Has Been Hacked

The likes of Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft have gotten better over the years at securing the consoles from external modification, though persistence (and a bit of smarts) can get you a long way. The PS3 eventually fell thanks to some determination and now the Nintendo 3DS has been hacked, so to speak, allowing users to run unsigned code on the platform.


These Are Nintendo's New Pokémon-Inspired Handhelds

‘If at first you don’t succeed, release a transparent Pokémon-edition model’. That’s Nintendo’s (frankly flawless) logic behind two new and very transparent 2DS models, which are being released alongside new Pokémon games.


A Super-Articulated Mario Figure Is Just What We Needed

Given the immense popularity of the Super Mario games and their countless spinoffs, you’d have thought that Nintendo would have been eager to get action figures of the characters into kids’ hands from day one. But it’s only recently that we’re finally seeing detailed and suitably articulated Mario figures that do justice to our favourite mustached plumber.


Nintendo Is Developing A Non-Wearable To Track Sleep And Fatigue

While the world and his dog builds wearables of all kinds, Nintendo seems to be headed in a different direction. The company’s CEO, Satoru Iwata, tells Reuters that a newly created healthcare division is building a sleep and fatigue tracker — that you won’t wear.
