I can't wait for October 24th because it's the day Fantasy Life launches in the states. I've spent a number of hours with the title trying to brush up on the basics, but I can't wait to see how the game's multiplayer will play out once everyone owns it. It will be interesting to see the character designs and skill types members will choose. :) I started off life as a hunter. :OO:

Roll on Friday. :D

Nintendo seems to be doing pretty well in the US at the moment. Smash Bros 3DS sales worldwide fall slightly short of 3 million copies, but in the US alone the game sold more than 705,000 copies over its launch weekend. The launch of Smash also helped increase 3DS hardware sales top those of August by 50%. The Hyrule Warriors sales figure for September is 190,000 units, which isn't bad considering its release date fell on September 26th. Mario Kart 8 still managed to sell 60,000 units in the US alone, which now takes its US sales figure to 1.2 million copies.

Let's hope sales pick up further now we're entering into the holiday sales.

Are 3DS XL Owners Tempted by the New Smaller 3DS?

I think most of us on site own and play 3DS games on a 3DS XL console, but I'm interested to know if XL owners are tempted to purchase the smaller version of the new 3DS instead of the larger model. The new smaller 3DS model looks like a mini 3DS, and this time around it comes with a bigger screen. The cool thing of course is that gamers can buy different faceplates to customize your 3DS. Sadly the bigger 3DS XL doesn't allow users to customize the system using faceplates. So would you sacrifice screen size for customisable plates?
