Sorry for the lack of updates. I decided to take a small vacation from the Internet and it was very peaceful. :) Kudos to anyone who reads the following seven news stories.
A Nintendo press conference was held today in Chiba, Japan where it was announced that the Nintendo 3DS will be released in Japan on February 26th for 25,000 yen (about $300). The system will hit American and European shores sometime in March, which is probably around the same general time Black and White will be released in America. The 3DS features a 3D screen that simulates depth, comes with a 2 GB SD card, and can play previous DS titles. It will also have a Virtual Console for old Gameboy and Gameboy Advance games where you can download classic games to play on the 3DS – perhaps Nintendo will eventually release the older Pokemon games? For full details on the 3DS’ specs, check out this news post from June.
