Here are some awesome games soon to come that caught our eyes:

 

Sonic Colors received a 9.0 and 7.5 on the Wii and DS respectively by Nintendo Power and it does look very stimulating. Perhaps this game could turn the series around?

 

 

 

 

I don't know much about Golden Sun: Dark Dawn but boy does it look good.

 

 

 

THQ's Dood's Big Adventure isn't going to be the next big thing, but what reminds us of a stylus and a screenboard, this game looks fun and interactive. I mean, imagine Drawn To Life on the Wii with the stylus option!

 

 

 

 

 

Yeah. You probably remember these guys. Well, Donkey Kong Country Returns is coming soon! Compare the old game to the new one!

Good news. The 3DS's price isn't offical for stateside. It may be around $250 but no confirmed price. Luckily, it has a 2GB memory card, a starter kit and other stuff I can't recall if not that's it. Also, you can transfer Dsi ware over. There are restrictions which are unknown of. . .as of now. Check out http://ign.com/ for more specs they have.

 

On October 12th Super Scribblenauts is scheduled for release. Kirby's Epic Yarn follows on the 17th. Some games to loom forward to soon. Once and if we can nab these games, we'll give you a review on it! So hang tight!

The news is out. The 3DS will launch in February, in Japan for $300 U.S. dollars. Hefty price, I know. America should get it about a month after in March, so mark those calendars, and REALLY save up 'till then.

Hopefully, the 3DS will come in a bundle for that much money, like maybe Kid Icarus or Nintendog + Cats to appeal to either gender. Hopefully, the price will lower over time, but let's hope it won't take years. Heck, at that price, it should be like a 360 or PS3, but the ability to play 3-d movies, 3-d video, 3-d videogames, I think it MAY be well worth it. Hopefully Gamestop has a trial-version in stores during March to see if it's a gimmick or not. Although, I'm pretty sure it's not. Since there is no offical U.S. release date, stick with http://epicyoshi.webs.com/ for the latest news on all things Nintendo, including this baby. ----->

For all who loved Pikmin and Luigi's Mansion, you may just have the right to dance. The creator of Luigi's Mansion says that he may make another game on the 3DS. Japan also may be getting the 3DS late november which means the U.S. may not be that far behind. How do we know this? Well, the creator for game cases and such says that those accessories should release near the end of November. Now, why would they sell cases and such without the product? Fingers crossed! A lot may happen soon, so get ready for the inevitable.

 In Pok'emon news, the three Isshu starters have benn confirmed! The release pics for the whole chain for the starters are in fact real! Head over to http://serebii.net.com/ and check the Archieves. It should be around from either this weeks news or the week before.
