Nintendo 3DS XL Yoshi

Nintendo has announced a new Yoshi-themed Nintendo 3DS XL console that's set to launch in conjunction with Yoshi's New Island on March 14th. The console is green, and features Yoshi running, being followed by a Yoshi egg. It should be noted that the console doesn't come with Yoshi's New Island as you might assume--that'll cost you a separate $39.99 if you want it. The 3DS XL itself will cost $199.99.

What do you think? Are you gonna pick up the Yoshi-themed 3DS XL? You can pre-order it now at Best Buy.

Nintendo will not hold an E3 media briefing this year

Nintendo Media Briefing 2013 cancelled

Nintendo has made a major announcement, saying that it will not be holding it's regular annual E3 media briefing this year. The E3 press conferences held by Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo are usually the highlight events of E3, setting the stage for the rest of the event by letting us know what each of the Big 3 have coming over the next year. With Wii U sales not meeting anywhere near Nintendo's expectations (and even falling short of the updated guidance,) alongside corporate reshuffling at Nintendo of America, one has to wonder if the move to not hold a major press event is because the company is putting out fires internally. Nintendo says that it will, instead, hold two smaller events at E3 for media and distributors, limited only to showing off new games.

Circle Pad Pro for Nintendo 3DS XL drops tomorrow for $20

Nintendo 3DS XL Circle Pad Pro

Nintendo 3DS XL owners have been clamoring for the Circle Pad Pro for the past eight months, and Nintendo is finally set to deliver. The company has listed the Circle Pad Pro device, and it is set to ship tomorrow. The trade off? Look how ugly and uneven it looks. Sure, you get an extra analog controller over on the right-hand side of the device, but we have a hard time understanding why Nintendo couldn't have built-in this functionality right on the 3DS XL itself. Still, unsightly or not, you get a more ergonomic design. You'll be able to pick up a 3DS XL Circle Pad Pro for $20--it's compatible with select titles, including Kid Icarus: Uprising, Kingdom Hearts 3D, Resident Evil Revelations, and more.
