RUMOR: Nintendo’s Next Portable System, “New3DS” Could Be Region-Free (Import-Friendly)

Nintendo New3DS

***UPDATE: Nintendo has confirmed that the New3DS will NOT be Region-Free and in fact will have the same Region-Lock technology as the Nintendo 3DS, disappointingly. The original unedited rumor follows below:

Nintendo recently revealed to the world that they will be releasing a brand new Nintendo 3DS called “New3DS” that has more RAM, a better CPU (Processor), more trigger buttons, a directional right analog nub, and exclusive game “Xenoblade Chronicles for New 3DS” coming alongside it this October in Japan but not until 2015 in North America. There will be a large LL (XL) version as well as a normal sized one both of which are bigger than 3DS and 3DS XL respectively by a small margin. New3DS also comes with a better 3D viewing screen according to Nintendo which will allow the display of higher resolution graphics and more wide viewing area for the 3D effect gamers on Nintendo handhelds currently enjoy.

A new Rumor has arisen, regarding the fact that New3DS could be the gateway to traveller’s getting the best of both worlds. Those who travel between the Americas, Europe, Japan, Australia, etc. on business may want to be able to purchase games on the go that work in their unit. Even more so, Import-Friendly gamers may want to pay the extra fees and shipping to get a game that only came out in Japan. Nintendo might be allowing a Region-Free setup for New3DS according to whisperings on Wall Street. If this turns out to be true, any New3DS game from any country could be played in a New3DS of any origin. Games and Handhelds would be universal for this transitional-gen of Nintendo New 3DS.

Inazuma Eleven – Nintendo 3DS Review

IE1_Screen4_TopBottom

Inazuma Eleven is a unique soccer RPG game that is developed by Level-5. It has combines RPG elements and the game of soccer into it to blend it into a very great mix. Players who are fans of RPGs or soccer will have a very fun experience while playing this game.

Inazuma Eleven is originally from a manga that is created by Tenya Yabuno. It has also been made into an anime on TV Tokyo. The story of Inazuma follows a middle-schooler named Mark Evans, who is a very talented goalkeeper that is the captain of the soccer club at his school, Raimon Middle School. His team never gets to play any games because they only have 7 players and in soccer the rules state that you need a team of 11. After meeting Axel Blaze, who is a very talented forward moves into Mark’s town, he searches for more students to join the soccer club so that they can face other schools and ultimately win the Soccer Frontier Internationals, the biggest soccer championship.

The game is broken into 10 chapters, which have two different elements on how it is played. The first one is your traditional RPG style. Players can walk around and go into different parts into the city to get certain items or advance into the story. They can also equip each soccer player with different equipment to boost different stats. Players will also be able to get random 4 vs 4 soccer battles while walking around. There are said to be close to 1000 soccer players available for you to scout students from your school or recruit students from other schools that you have defeated onto your soccer team. So players can switch and change their team anyway they want to create the perfect team for their own personal style.

Now the main part of this game is the actual soccer matches that the player will encounter. The way that this game plays this is by using the bottom screen of the 3DS and the stylus. The controls are not hard to master but it will take a match or two to understand how its work being that this is a unique way of playing a game. Players will control their team by using the stylus to run in certain directions, dodge or attack the opponents, and to take a shot at the goal. Another unique thing that is usable in the soccer matches is that each character can learn special moves. There are 4 types. Shooting moves, Keeper moves, Dribble moves, and Blocking moves. Each character can learn different moves that can be bought at stores or learned by leveling up. But certain characters have unique moves that other characters cannot get at all. Such as Mark’s “God Hand” keeper move or Axel’s “Fire Tornado” shooting move. Some moves that will be learned later in the game will require 2 or 3 characters in order to be done.

Inazuma Eleven Fan Art

This game was originally on the Nintendo DS and never released in the United States but it has been enhanced for the 3DS. The game also has a multiplayer mode where you can have a match or trade players locally with a friend. Players can buy different uniforms for their team while playing multiplayer. There is a lot of replay value in this game and it’s great that the music in the game is very good. The game took me 22 and a half hours to complete and even when it is done there is still much more that players can do within the game. One of the downsides of the game is that it doesn’t really utilize the 3D effects as much as some other games on the 3DS lineup. Only time you can use it is when the players are watching special moves being used. But most of the time the 3D effects are off.

Final Verdict:

Inazuma Eleven is a very fun game and an enjoyable experience. There was a lot that has liked about the game and not a lot that is bad with it. After playing this I will be looking into watching the anime and reading the manga. I give this game a 9 out of 10 making it an RGN Gold Game.
