The New Design & Direction of 3DStination.com


As you may have noticed, the layout and design of 3DStination has recently changed.

The redesign was past due to say the least; this theme not only looks nicer than the last, it is also more flexible on the backend.

You probably have not noticed any shifting in ‘direction’ for the website, but the primary focus of content will soon shift from standard reviews and reporting daily news to unique, original content such as editorials, blogs, lists, and random posts about specific or obscure topics.

The goal is to be simplistic and ‘punchy’.

There will still be plenty of news posts, video and screenshot updates, and reviews of 3DS games.  The goal is simply to cut out some of the extra ‘fluff’ and cut to the chase.

This website is dedicated to 3DS games, and therefore caters to a niche audience – it seems unnecessary to approach any content without assuming the reader is decently informed.

Let us know what you think. Tell us if the new look is terrible, or if there is anything that can be done to improve the site in any way. Any feedback is appreciated.

Blog – Catching Up After E3

As most of you are probably already aware, Nintendo’s offerings at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles were pretty much the talk of the show.

This year’s presentation largely expanded the upcoming Wii U library, but plenty more was announced for the Nintendo 3DS, including information about key titles such as Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire, as well as upcoming eShop titles.

Unfortunately, I was unable to keep up with any sort of posting during the E3 week, and missed out on most of the big headlines. As a result, I am going to do my best to post a few of the highlights and resume consistent posting from this point forward.

Stay tuned for some of the big release date announcements, trailers and new information about E3′s biggest Nintendo 3DS games.

Top 6 Most-Wanted Hoenn Mega Evolutions

This November, Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire will revisit the Hoenn region and the Third Generation Pokemon games, Ruby & Sapphire. 

We already know that there will be new Mega Evolutions; specifically new forms of Sceptile, Swampert, and Diancie have been revealed. There will also be some kind of “Ancient Devolution” form of the legendary monsters Groudon and Kyogre, but further details are unknown.

Granted, there were several “Megas” for Hoenn-based Pokemon introduced in Pokemon X & Y - Manectric, Mawile, and Blaziken to name a few – but I would like to see more in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

Keep reading after the jump for my short list of most-wanted Mega Evolutions based in the Hoenn area, complete with some nifty / hilarious “Fakemon” results, courtesy of Google Image Search. Continue reading

Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire – New Starter Mega Evolutions Revealed

The latest issue of CoroCoro magazine has revealed that all three starter Pokemon in the upcoming Pokemon Omega Ruby & Pokemon Alpha Sapphire will have “Mega Evolutions”.

Mega Blaziken was introduced in Pokemon X & Y, so that’s nothing new – but scans of the magazine (seen above) show images of Mega Swampert and Mega Sceptile, as well as Mega Diancie, all of which look considerably impressive. More details after the break.  Continue reading

Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire Details Coming June 15

Not much has been revealed about the upcoming Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire games, at least nothing substantial enough for the die-hard fans such as myself to feel satisfied.

This looks to change very soon – apparently there will be “a large scoop” about the “third-gen” Pokemon re-makes via Pokémon Get☆TV on June 15.

Pokémon Get☆TV (as well as the Japanese magazine Coro Coro) have been consistently focused sources of legitimate information on the Pokemon series, so I expect that we should see something interesting in just over a week – perhaps even a few screenshots, or information about what exactly sets these games apart from past Pokemon titles.


Shovel Knight Finally Headed to eShop June 26

The long-awaited indie game Shovel Knight, developed by Yacht Club Games, is headed to Nintendo eShop this month – June 26th, specifically.

Meet the villains of Shovel Knight.

For those who haven’t been following the development of Shovel Knight, the game draws a lot of inspiration from NES-era games such as Mega Man and Zelda II: Adventures of Link. Beyond the 8-bit sprites and MIDI-style soundtrack, the game features side-scrolling platforming action and eight unique bosses that can be dispatched in the order of your choosing.

You may really want to check this one out when it drops – few 3DS eShop games have received the pre-release buzz that Shovel Knight has, which should hopefully be a good sign.
