You asked, you got it! Nintendo 3DS news is here!

Wii U Daily now features a Nintendo 3DS news section, which will cover major announcements for Nintendo's handheld console.

wii-u-daily-3ds

A few days ago we asked you guys whether or not you wanted to see Nintendo 3DS news featured on Wii U Daily. We received tons of responses and Rob agreed, the over-whelming majority of you would love to see 3DS news here along with Wii U news. You can now access our 3DS news by clicking the new tab you see on the homepage above the news section. If you don’t see it, refresh and clear your cache, it’s there.

For those of you concerned that this will cut into our Wii U news, that’s not the case. We are and will always remain focused on the Wii U here at Wii U Daily. If anything, our Nintendo 3DS news will be light news announcements and recaps of what’s going on with Nintendo’s handheld. You’ll see a selection of news already available from previous articles we’ve written that also addressed the 3DS.

We’re eager to know what you think about these changes, so hit us up in the comments. If you’re experiencing any problems after you’ve refreshed the page and cleared your cache, let us know!

    sweet

  • kinghenroc187

    optional thats great!!!

    • http://about.me/overlordror Ashley King

      It was planned to be optional from the beginning.

      • Nintedward

        But I’m still going to find a way to complain! How dare you give us optional extra news like this , this is OUTRAGEOUS!!!!!!

        (Yep, I was just joking lol…)

        • Magnus Eriksson

          Should be a VITA section too?

          • Anubis

            Hell no.

          • LopsidedPasta

            You must be new to video gaming.
            3ds= Nintendo.
            Wii U= Nintendo.
            Vita= half-assed Sony gimmick. (That last part was my personal opinion).

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            He was obviously being sarcastic.

          • Me Gusta

            No Me Gusta Nintendo fanboy who not know sarcasm…

          • Andreas Sunde

            Really people? You can’t see that this is a joke?

            I’m agreeing more and more with you every day about the people here…

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            It’s been that way for a long time. Some get it, and some don’t. Lol.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Yes, and a PS4 section while we’re at it. So Wii U owners can keep up with Sony.

          • Maxid765

            They have PS4daily, ran by the same admins

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Sarcasm my friend. :)

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Im impressed over their ability to reach over all at once.

          • John Raybell

            go to IGN for that

          • Me Gusta

            Me Gusta Sarcasm.

        • aldo2410

          There must be a EA and Patcher section so we wouldn’t see negative news on the main page

      • LopsidedPasta

        Awesome. The 3DS is throwing some amazing punches right now. This feature is long overdue.

      • Wayne Beck

        I know its kind of dumb cause we have a home button, but can you put the Wii U and 3DS tabs on the DS page? The inconsistency is driving me crazy. Lol

        • LopsidedPasta

          I was about to say the same thing. When you go to the 3ds section, the tabs disappear. This means the only way to get back to the Wii U side is to reload the page. It’s a minor inconvenience, but it kind of makes the new service seem unpolished.

        • Shong

          Is it also possible to have the tabs appear when reading an article? I know it seems asking a lot, but it would be extremely convenient.

        • robjackson81

          Thanks for the suggestion. I’ll have our dev take a look and see if we can spiffy up the 3DS page a bit as you’re suggesting.

          • Wayne Beck

            Thank You!

            I love when people take their audience’s opinions into consideration. :-)

    • Rakim69

      Surveillence is safety :: Xbox One > Your console.

  • david jarman

    Ooooooo!

  • Billy_Perry

    This is really simple, easy to use, really good implementation. Would you think of doing the same for the PS4 site with Vita?

    • http://about.me/overlordror Ashley King

      Potentially! It probably depends how well the 3DS section here is received.

      • robjackson81

        What Ashley said, but also, Vita seems to have far fewer followers than 3DS so not sure if it’s worth the added effort. Time will tell I suppose… but I wouldn’t rule it out.

        Oh and thanks for the kind words about implementation! Glad you like it!

  • D.M.T

    It seems like this website needs a name change now. NintendoDaily.com

    • robjackson81

      So… you buy the domain from whoever owns it… gift it to us… and then we’ll hold a reader poll :)

      Haha if that name was available maybe I would have snatched it and considered it. Just because we don’t change the name now doesn’t mean we can’t in the future. But right now the Wii U is our main focus. We’ll continually evaluate where Nintendo is headed in the coming months/years and do what we think is best for our readers.

      • cement

        cant u change the name but keep the same url???

      • GameChanger

        What about NESdaily.com…with NES standing for Nintendo Exclusive Site. You guys could even do feature stories on previous Nintendo consoles and games.

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          People might mistake it refering to the NES(Nintendo Entertainment System).

          • GameChanger

            That very mistake just might intrigue a lot of people. I’m not saying to change it now but it would be perfect for the upcoming 30th anniversary of the NES (not this year’s Famicom anniversary).

  • Sdudyoy

    Thanks! I’ve been wanting this for awhile now!

  • asdfk

    Yes! thank you for not making another site. its much more convienient this way. but i think a name change is needed.

    • John boy 556

      Who cares anyway, nobody cares about these childish nintendo/ console games. Everyone needs to join the hatdcore elite of the pc madter race and experience gaming the way it was meant to be. Gabe newell will strike you infidels down! You are holding my gaming back!

      • Jack5221

        NO ONE is going to think you’re more of an adult because you play World of Warcraft instead of Mario.

      • D.M.T

        You’re gonna get banned (again) from here sooner or later. It’s just a matter of time

        • John boy 556

          Its a free country and I have the right to state fact that oc gaming is far more elegant than your consoles. The master race will be victorious one day. If only you people would admit that you are inferior to the master race then we wouldnt have to keep commenting and telling you fact

          • D.M.T

            Yeah this is a free country, which is why you will get banned because the Mods have the right to ban your ass from here.

          • lozman1122

            The oc race? Really dude? I’m not a grammar nazi, but if you’re gonna act all high and mighty then at least spell it correctly. Now not only do you look like a troll, but you look stupid as well.

          • Mark

            Who are you, the Hitler of the gaming world?

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Master race? Its so strange, but people that talk that way rarely looks like belonging to a master race. Often they have bold head, ugly tattoos, very low IQ, limps, crosseyed, etc. They look more like something Hitler nazis would put to death. The nazis didnt want to build a master race out of defect genes. But why are all todays nazis obviously defect?

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            People sometimes forget that PC’s aren’t living things. As much as PC gaming is fun, it has its share of problems just like consoles. Sounds like an insecure child.

          • Metal_Man_v2

            Maybe not defects, but considering Hitler built his party out of people with recessive genes that are the result of mutations in DNA… yeah, you see where I’m going. I mean how could you “nazi” where I am going. Ok… that was bad…

          • cement

            want to know what is superior than even your pc gaming and all console gaming! going outside and seeing sunshine!!! Fuck consoles! FUCK PC!!! REALITY BITCHES!!!!XD now shut ur face hole!

          • ItzameyaToad

            More elegant than consoles? What is more elegant than going to a store buying a console, seting it up(plugging it in etc.) and playing games? Anyway your comment is wrong seeing as your comment was this “elegant” word we in society call an “Opinion”. Now im not going to argue with your opinion because it is a waste of my time so have a nice day and keep exercising your right to an “Opinion” and be sure to continue to discuss your opinion with people who actually care like…. your “master race” groupies. :)

          • Andreas Sunde

            Obsessive Compulsive Gaming? Count me in.

          • John Raybell

            Yeah he is right, this is a free country, and anyone can be an idiot if they want.

            The freedom of speech in this case should be called the freedom to be an idiot.

            But if one is disturbing the peace, then yeah mr John Boy 556 you can be banned from here.

            Face Palm

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Freedom of speech is a priviledge to have as a human being, not to be abused and thrown around like a pair of socks. Nice try. What you do is try to use it to your advantage. Hi5

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Yes, it may be a free country, and you may have the right of speech. But, that doesn’t mean you can state an opinion “oc gaming is far more elegant than your consoles” as a fact (you should at least know how to spell if you’re going to state ANYTHING.)
            But on this site, if on every article you say: “da ha, consoles suck, all of you humanz suck cause you not play on da PC, PC be da real sh*t”. You’re, first of all, off topic. And eventually, if you keep doing this you’re going to get banned for trolling or spamming or both. Just warning you.
            You probably don’t know what trolling or spamming means, so i’ll spell it out for ya’ (heh, literally.)

            “Trolling” is when a person finds enjoyment out of someone’s else’s misery, anger, sadness etc. and keeps making it worse. Which, you making fun of everyone for your own pleasure (calling them peasants) is indeed trolling.

            “Spamming” is when you send junk mail to someone. Or you send something that wastes their time.
            And you sir/ma’am are wasting our (and your own) time by trying to call your opinion a “fact”. And you’re also wasting our time by trying to “persuade” us “console peasants” to just play on a PC. Wow….what a mature individual you are, hmmm? (sarcasm.)

      • Sdudyoy

        I’m sorry sir but you are wrong I care about Nintendo consoles and games, so when you say nobody cares you are wrong, when people troll It’s just some guy over the PC saying some words, I have no idea why people don’t ignore you it just feeds trolls like you, the only reason I’m replying is because of the long comment chain that you caused, so one other person replying does not make a difference, I know you probably already know this but you haven’t changed anyone’s opinion on what games they play but you have made people dislike you, I don’t see why you would want to do that but you can have your fun It just proves how childish you are, if you can’t respect other people’s opinion then your the one acting childish.

      • LopsidedPasta

        I thought that the Master Race could at least spell “hardcore”, “master”, or “Newell” correctly. Lol, some “madter race” you got going on. But hey, at least you used punctuation. I sincerely thank you for that.

      • John Raybell

        or own nintendo consoles and handhelds and a pc and other consoles.

        Last gen I was able to get a wii,xbox360.3ds and build a gaming pc, all while being pretty fucking broke, pulled it off no problem, the key here is to not buy them all at once, one a year, one every other year, in the end its very cheap and anyone that wasn’t lazy could do it, even someone young and still in school, GET A JOB OR DO A BUNCH OF ODD JOBS.

        America these days, when ever I hear someone say I could never afford that or something along those lines I just want to slap them up side the damn heads.

        In the case of John Boy 556 here, he is not a true gamer and is also a troll.

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          That much is obvious.

      • 00EpicGamer00

        ……This is why your acting like this, isn’t it? -_-

  • Jack5221

    Great! All thats left for me to do now is buy a 3DS… Which won’t be easy with Pikmin 3, Super Luigi (CD version), and Wonderful 101, coming out real soon.

  • Kriffix

    Awesome! Great Job!

  • Michael Jurado

    ^__^ I can’t wait to read up on Mario and Luigi dream team

  • everyone

    Neet.

  • uPadWatcher

    Congrats, Ashley. Now we can read both news for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS!

  • lozman1122

    Owning both, it’s going to be nice to receive news regarding both on one site as opposed to having to check others as well. (Not that I mind checking others, but I like this site better) keep the awesomeness coming!

  • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

    Thanks WiiUDaily!

  • AAAkabob

    Make the tab a more vibrant color! Had to kinda search for it before I could click on it.

  • Jon

    I have one complaint about it, when you click 3DS new, it is like it takes you to another news feed in which there is no option to go back unless you click home…. lol

    • robjackson81

      Working on it… thanks!

  • Mj78

    3ds, Wii u…. from no games to too many games….my wallets is in agony!!!!!!!!!

  • Craig Mclachlan

    :)

  • NintendoMan

    You should also update the pages for Wii U games and controllers. It’s so out of date it is not even funny.

    • robjackson81

      To which pages are you referring (linkies please)?

  • InterTreble

    You were the greatest, now you are even better! XD

  • Edward

    I’m thinking the Wii U needs an extension to play DS games on it. Kind of like the Gamecube had the Game Boy Player they need that for the Wii U. There is a ton of amazing games on the ds and 3ds that would be fun to play on the Wii U.

    • Edward

      Maybe even have 2 slots for games. One slot for DS and 3DS games and the other slot for Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance games.

    • 00EpicGamer00

      You know, that’s actually a very good idea. In fact, me and my older sister were actually just thinking about that. My sister was like “you know, they should really make a way to play DS games on the Wii U. It’d be perfect for it, since it does have two screens”.
      It would really make perfect sense to make a extension to be able to play DS games on the Wii U. The gamepad would be the bottom screen of the DS, and the TV would be the top part of the DS. It’d be just absolutely perfect! Cause i’m pretty sure all of us would love to play our DS games on a big TV screen. Especially games like Ocarina of Time 3D, and Animal Crossing New Leaf.

      • Edward

        I know I would like to play my DS or 3DS games on my Wii U. I heard they were trying to make the 3ds compatible with the Wii U as an extra controller or something as well.

        • 00EpicGamer00

          IF Nintendo ever made this a reality, what they should do is, like what they did with the Gamecube. You know, make a separate part that hooks onto your Wii U, and you can put 3DS and DS games in it and play them right on your Wii U.
          …..Alright, someone needs to send Nintendo an email about this! I don’t know if they accept ideas from fans, though.

        • 00EpicGamer00

          Well…I’ve mustered up the courage and actually sent them an email about it.

        • 00EpicGamer00

          Hey, I finally got a response from them :)
          if you want to read it go to the “Analyst says fate of Wii U depends on Fall game lineup.”

          • Edward

            You did hopefully it is good news. I’m going to look for it now. Thanks man.

  • Nothing5555

    might as well name the sit Nintendo daily.

  • Pikboss

    perfect just what I wanted

  • Peter5747

    nice

  • Leo

    Good job!

  • Maxid765

    What IgnoranceIswhatsup would say:

    You guys shouldn’t have bothered with an extra section for 3DS news. We all know Nintendo is DOOMED anyways>

    :D

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      Well, I think he’d word it a bit more aggressively, but good enough.

    • John Raybell

      um ok, hes not here, so why do you have to play his part?

      Your not a necromancer so please don’t bring the dead back to life lol

      • Elem187

        He was banned :)
        I hope someone bans his other account too.

        • John Raybell

          awesome! same here, i really hated that troll lol

  • John Raybell

    sad day when wiiu has so little news that we need to combine two systems.

    Well My time may have come to find a wiiu exclusive page, as this will just be a mess.

    Why didnt you just make a 3dsdaily?

    • LopsidedPasta

      3ds stuff is in a completely different section that must be intentionally accessed by you, should you wish to do so. No one is forcing 3ds stuff down your throat

    • robjackson81

      Nothing will change for readers. The homepage will still only be 3DS news. The only time you’ll see 3DS news is if you specifically go to that 3DS section.

      There are MANY readers fans who want 3DS news too. We found a way to keep the site Wii U focused while still offering the extra benefit to our 3DS seekers, so we figured it was worth the extra effort.

      An entirely new site would have been too much of a distraction and taken away from our focus, which is the Wii U. This offers a nice balance, in my opinion. But we’ll continue to evaluate and listen to our readers.

      • Edward

        I have both so I will be looking at both sections. I wish I had extra money to buy extra games for the 3ds though.

      • John Raybell

        oh ok sorry, misunderstood, in this case, awesome lol, thank you

  • Ducked

    Thank You!

  • http://www.w-o-n.org/ GoldDreams

    That’s great. I’m glad it won’t effect the Wii U news. IMHO this is the best place on the net to go for Wii U news.

  • JamesJose

    Perfect, so people that don’t want to see them can’t complain cause they are in another tab.

  • PS4/WiiU

    Finally!!!!!!

  • Metal_Man_v2

    All our Nintendo news in one place. Forgive me for saying this, but it’s about time.

  • Guest

    Rayman Legends error: The release just needs to be updated. Nothing else.

  • Stephen Davis

    I never asked….I was against proposition 3D, where are the polls on this? :P

  • Einar

    NintendoDaily. com ?

  • Me Gusta

    Me Gusta Nintendo 3DS.

  • Baum 「ツリー」

    That actually really well done. Good job Wii U daily team :D

  • Felix

    I bet that the result of the poll was “no 3ds news”. why u do this sir

  • Kev

    And on the day we get 3ds news, Wii U steals the show with earthbound.

  • https://soundcloud.com/rauschenmaschine Kristian Kouvo

    Nintendo should create a 3DS-to-TV app for WiiU, so people who own both could transmit the 3DS signal to television (wireless). This would be useful as example if you want to play an RPG (or any) game together with you friend. Would make things easier. 3DS screen is OK when you play alone, but playing as a group, making decisions and sharing the experience needs a TV (to make things easier).

    There could be also other 3DS + WiiU cooperative possibilities and this could speed up the sales again for both consoles. Thanks. o_

  • Baconfat23

    Looks like the point of this site was just thrown out the window

  • Guest

    *incorrect title* Well no one asked… you asked us remember?

  • Rakim69

    Surveillence is safety :: Xbox One > Your console.

  • Magnus Eriksson

    I actually doesnt own a 3DS but Im starting to think about getting one quite soon (the XL). But also Im thinking about getting a VITA as I think about getting a PS4 eventually. I wont buy both of them, thats out of the question. Therefore Im looking for pro’s and con’s with both of them. Could I get serious responds to this one?

    • Rakim69

      Surveillence is safety :: Xbox One > Your console. Simple as that..

      • Elem187

        BWAHAHHAHA
        Its like a PRISM into your gaming soul.

    • everyone

      3ds xl has more popular games currently. I personally like the feel of the circle pad. PS Vita is better technology and can access apps faster like the web but it currently has mainly ports of PS3 games and the analog sticks are like little nubs and can feel uncomfortable at times if you have bigger thumbs.

  • FoxMulder900

    This is perfect timing, I have been using my 3DS a lot lately!

  • http://twitch.tv/dve2k DVE

    Should I buy a 3ds? I rather hear about WiiU news but I’m curious about it O_o

  • BIG Franky

    actually you guys asked… right? hate to be that guy…. let the down votes commence! LOL…

  • Arthur Jarret

    Considering this site now concerns all nintendo platforms – please call it Nintendo Daily from now on.

    I don’t want to miss out on that smartphone game announcement due to this website only reporting on WiiU and 3DS

  • Dan

    Thank you Ashley. This is awesome!

  • http://www.mpt-online.eu/ Sylux

    Refresh? Clearing cache? Sounds like a plan but it seems to be unnecessary for me, the tab was there the second I game here. I’ll get busy now checking not only WiiU daily, but also 3DS tab daily and ps4 daily every now and then as well. Great addition though.

  • Joey Perez

    Change the site to Nintendodaily

  • Immallama22

    Can you guys make it so the Wii U tab still shows up while in the 3DS news?
