NINTENDO DEBUTS NEW NINTENDO 3DS XL DURING PAX SOUTH

New Nintendo 3DS XL Logo

New PAX, New Nintendo 3DS XL!

During the first PAX South event in San Antonio, Texas, from Jan. 23 to Jan. 25, Nintendo is giving fans a chance to get some hands-on time with the New Nintendo 3DS XL system before it launches in the U.S. on Feb. 13. Upcoming Nintendo 3DS games The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, which both use the enhanced features of New Nintendo 3DS XL, will also be available to play.

New Nintendo 3DS XL provides a number of new enhancements designed to offer the smoothest and most engrossing portable gaming experience possible. The system features a wider range of controls with the addition of a C Stick and ZL/ZR buttons, beautifully enhanced super-stable 3D via face-tracking technology and built-in NFC functionality that allows for communication with amiibo figures.

New PAX, New Nintendo 3DS XL

The system also has faster processing power than the Nintendo 3DS system, which allows some software to start up faster. The increase in CPU power also allows improved download speeds and smoother transitions when switching between software and when using Miiverse. (Download speeds may vary depending on Internet connections.)

PAX South runs for three days, and fans of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask definitely know the importance of a 72-hour timeline within the game. To celebrate the upcoming launch of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D on Feb. 13, Nintendo is hosting a “72-Hour Mask Challenge,” which asks fans to create their own personalized masks. For more details, stay tuned to the Nintendo of America Twitter account (@NintendoAmerica).

In addition to playing New Nintendo 3DS XL and many fun games, visitors to the Nintendo booth (#1234) at PAX South will have the opportunity to take photos with a real-life replica of the Majora’s Mask and receive paper versions to wear around the convention (while supplies last). Fans that come dressed in costumes inspired by The Legend of Zelda will be able to bypass lines to get hands-on time with The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D.

Nintendo 3DS games scheduled to be shown include:

• The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D from Nintendo

• Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate from Capcom

• Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS from Nintendo

NINTENDO PREPARES TO DISCONTINUE CLUB NINTENDO REWARDS PROGRAM

Club Nintendo

REDMOND, Wash., Jan. 20, 2015 ? After more than six years of delivering fun Nintendo-themed rewards to its members, Club Nintendo is preparing to shut down. Nintendo’s loyalty-rewards program rewarded members with a variety of items, such as downloadable games, Nintendo posters or character figures in exchange for Coins that members earned by registering products or completing surveys. Club Nintendo members in the United States and Canada can earn additional Coins through the end of March, and can redeem those Coins through the end of June. Nintendo of America will be announcing a new customer loyalty program at a later date.

“We thank all Club Nintendo members for their dedication to Nintendo games and their ongoing love for our systems and characters,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “We want to make this time of transition as easy as possible for our loyal Club Nintendo members, so we are going to add dozens of new rewards and downloadable games to help members clear out their Coin balances.”

Nintendo will add a number of physical reward options for members in February. Members will also be able to choose from a lineup of many downloadable games. As a gift to Club Nintendo members, the Flipnote Studio 3D software will be available to download for free in February. This software will allow users to create unique three-dimensional animations and to exchange their creations via local wireless with others who also own Flipnote Studio 3D.

Users who uploaded creations to Flipnote Hatena will be able to download their personal animations from the Nintendo DSi Library menu in Flipnote Studio 3D software. Flipnote Studio 3D will be available to Club Nintendo members until June 30. The ability to create a new Club Nintendo account will end on March 31. All users who register to Club Nintendo before registration closes will be eligible to receive Flipnote Studio 3D.

WII U CLOSES 2014 WITH BIGGEST MONTH OF SALES IN ITS HISTORY

Wii U Logo


Jan. 15, 2014 - Wii U established new benchmarks for hardware and software sales in a single month in December. This helped total hardware and software sales in 2014 increase by more than 29 percent and more than 75 percent, respectively, over sales in 2013.

Nintendo 3DS also had a strong December, including its largest month ever for first-party software sales. This was primarily fueled by Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, which has already surpassed 2 million combined physical and digital units sold in a little more than three months, and Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, which have combined to sell over 2.6 million physical and digital units in their first six weeks.

“Wii U had its strongest year yet thanks to the highly anticipated software lineup and the introduction of the amiibo platform,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Fans can anticipate another strong year for 2015, especially with more highly anticipated games like Splatoon and The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D, as well as New Nintendo 3DS XL, arriving in the first half of 2015.”

Other Nintendo highlights from the full 2014 year include:

Wii U

  • Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U sold over 1.7 million physical and digital units and 1.3 million physical and digital units, respectively, in 2014.
  • Total sales of amiibo figures in 2014 are nearly twice the sales of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

Nintendo 3DS

  • In 2014, 16 Nintendo 3DS titles sold at least 250,000 units. Of those titles, eight sold more than 500,000 units and three sold over 1 million units.
  • In 2014, the top 15 best-selling hand-held titles were all released on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.
