Nintentunes can’t get enough Skyward Sword, so it’s an all Zelda edition!

Today I finished what may be one of the finest Zelda adventures yet in Skyward Sword, and to celebrate this edition of Nintentunes is all Zelda, all the time! This time we will travel through the handheld versions of the Zelda franchise which contain fantastic music in their own right. For all those playing Skyward Sword, how do you think the music in the Wii adventure holds up?

Nintentunes is here to help sooth your Halloween party hangover, with music!

Gameboy – Avenging Spirit One of my favorite elements of the Nintendo download services is the ability to download classic games. When the eShop Gameboy version of Avenging Spirit was released a few months ago for the 3DS eShop, I may have been one of the few people jumping for joy and looking for my credit card to put down the 3 bucks to purchase the game. I remember playing the game for ho...

Still… I didn’t get to experience much of the original Four Swords, but, as I understand it, this version can be completed solo, while the original could not. It...

Nintentunes: Labor day edition

Gameboy – Sword of Hope 2 Sword of Hope was known along with Final Fantasy Legend as one of the first RPGs to appear on the Game Boy. Kemco later released a sequel to the title, and although I don’t remember much of story other than the need to find some dude named Zakdos, but I do rembember the awesome soundtrack. Throughout the entire adventure the music is catchy and rhythmic, and for a...

Nintentunes handheld edition: all the great tunes now available in your pocket!

Gameboy – X One of the great things about Nintendo handhelds circa 2008 was their ability to play games from other regions without having to worry about the game being region locked. Although X was never released outside of Japan, this early attempt at three-dimensional gameplay for the original gameboy spiked many gamers interest outside of the land of the rising sun. Going back and playing...

Prediction – 3DS system update to include Ocarina of Time trailer

Hey, listen! When the 3DS system update that is expected to include the eShop and DSi system transfers comes out this month, I bet they replace the fun Ok Go video with a 3D version of the recent Zelda: Ocarina of Time trailer. What do y’all think?

What will the 3DS bring to gaming?

3D technology is nothing new, it has been around in some form or another since the late 1890s. Yeah, shocked me as well when I realized that 3D viewing tech has been around for over a century. 3D isn’t even new to the world of video games as the SEGA Master System used glasses to achieve the 3D effect. So what sets the 3DS apart from everything else? Well hit the jump and I’ll be happy to let ...

Nintendo 3DS press conference on January 19th

In less than four weeks, Nintendo will be hosting a press event in New York City. There will be hands on demos and a presentation by Reggie. I think it’s safe to assume we’ll finally be given a launch date and pricing information. Hopefully it’ll be close to or even before the Japanese release date of February 26th, but also hopefully less than the nearly $300 price tag (once you...

Unconfirmed: German paper touts November 11 3DS launch date

Is the Nintendo 3DS launching in Japan on November 11? Possibly yes, if a German tabloid with a track record for calling Nintendo rumors correctly is to be believed. Case in point, according to Bild, which cites no source but nevertheless definitively lists a Japanese launch date, the 3DS is arriving in Nippon on November 11. No word was given on a U.S. or European launch date, save for “spr...
