Mewtwo makes his Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS debut on 28th April. Those that purchased both versions of the game, however, have received download codes for the new character ahead of its official release.

If you’re curious to see how it handles, NintendoZjman has put together a short video showcasing its moveset in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. Check it out below, and don’t forget to subscribe to his YouTube channel!

Introducing the New Nintendo Invader  –   we need your help!

new-nintendo-invaderAre you passionate about Nintendo?

Maybe you have a personal blog, or a YouTube channel, where you rant about the latest Nintendo Direct? Perhaps you fancy your hand at long-form writing, and want an outlet for your reviews and editorial content? Or maybe you just want to push your existing content to a wider audience? Did you answer yes to any of those questions? Sounds to us like you’re the perfect match for the New Nintendo Invader!

Here’s what we’re looking for:

  • Writers: We need help with the general up-keep of the site. If you consider yourself a decent writer, and enjoy sharing your thoughts in the form of written articles, we invite you to join the Nintendo Invader team. It doesn’t matter if you prefer writing news, reviews, features or personal blog posts, your words will always be welcome on Nintendo Invader!
  • Fan-Site Owners and Contributors: We want to share the coolest Nintendo stuff from around the web! Pride yourself on your unbiased reviews? Does your cat looks awesome in a Mario hat? Join our network and we’ll share a snippet of your content with our own viewers and social media followers – fully credited and linked back to your site.
  • YouTubers and Video Producers: Do you record video reviews or impressions? How about “Let’s Plays” and walkthrough videos? We’d love to share these, too! We’ll post the first video in your most recent series in an article on our homepage, and let our readers know when a new episode goes live via our social media channels.

If any of these apply to you, then please do get in touch with us. Nintendo Invader has been dormant for too long now, yet keeping up with the demands of a fast-paced industry such as ours requires more time than our team currently has available. If you’d like to share your stuff with our visitors, or have an interest in writing original content with us, please use the form below to get in touch!

What about that Newsletter of yours?

With the Nintendo Invader Newsletter, I planned to make an outlet for my Nintendo writing – without the need to be online 24/7. There’s plenty other, more successful, sites covering the latest Nintendo news as it breaks, so I wanted a new approach.

It was supposed to be a round-up of the month’s news and other content, but with no new content on the site, it’d prove kind of pointless, right? That’s where the New Nintendo Invader comes in! With new content being brought in by YOU, we’ll have more substance and content for an awesome new newsletter!

Any questions or opinions? Let us know what you think of the idea using the form above, or e-mail me at martyn@nintendoinvader.com

First Impressions: New Nintendo 3DS XL

New Nintendo 3DS XL

There comes a time in almost every 3DS owner’s life where they push the 3D slider down, removing the glassless 3D image, and never adjust it back. The vast majority of games for the system don’t utilize the 3D in a meaningful way, and articles about the 3DS and its games are plagued with comments from users about the gimmicky nature of the system. The 3D has become useless enough that Nintendo even released an entirely new 3DS with the 3D component completely removed, cleverly titled the 2DS.

With 2015 came another revision for the Nintendo 3DS family, but with this system, it finally feels like Nintendo made the system they wanted to release in 2011. Continue reading
