Kid Icarus: Uprising’s Stand Included in U.S. Version

Nintendo’s recently announced plastic stand for Kid Icarus: Uprising has been confirmed to be included in all U.S. packaging as well as Japan.

I understand what Nintendo is trying to produce with this stand, but isn’t it kind of odd having a stationary peripheral for a handheld system?  Instead of making the Circle Pad Pro available exclusively as a solution for left handed gamers, I believe that it should have been used as a secondary control option for Kid Icarus. This would solve the comfortability issue, but perhaps losing the precision of the touch screen isn’t a fair trade-off, as Nintendo has recently declared. Nevertheless, it’s optional, plus, I’m sure it works great as a way to watch movies and TV in 3D!

Just Dance Series Sells Over 25 Million Worldwide

It appears that millions of people around the world are listening to Ubisoft’s advice and just dancing (that wasn’t nearly as clever as it sounded in my head…).  The phenomenon has surpassed an impressive milestone, and the momentum doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon, with Just Dance 3 consistently heading the Top 10 in sales. Statistics (which are totally made up, yet likely close to the truth) say that 1 in 4 men will be forced to play Just Dance with their girlfriends this year, so be strong guys. It’s gotta end soon, right?

More Details on The Last Story Limited Edition

Good news for Europeans, yet aggravating news for us on the other side of the Atlantic.  If it wasn’t good enough that Europeans at least get to play The Last Story, Nintendo of Europe has decided now that they’re getting a luxurious, steel book package that includes a soundtrack including seven, original songs from the game.  Have fun with the game and soundtrack, Europeans, while us Americans enjoy… Uhm… Lebron James!
