Xenoblade Chronicles 3D will be released April 10, 2015 for North America and Europe and will be exclusive to the New Nintendo 3DS and New 3DS XL. The eShop version of this game will be 3.6GB in size (digital copy), so if you bought the New Nintendo 3DS XL and haven’t upgrade the stock 4GB MicroSD card, a physical copy is the best choice. Many RPG fans already have an eye on this game, including myself. It might bring back the glory of the great Final Fantasy era, but on portable.

One of the high points in gaming from the Nintendo 64 era, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask game now has been remastered and released for the Nintendo 3DS. It is now available in local gaming stores and also in the 3DS eShop.
