Features a Single Seamless World Map: New Super Mario Bros. U

According to next month’s issue of Game Informer, New Super Mario Bros. U will have a single, seamless world map modeled after the pattern of Super Mario World. Though there will be themed sub-zones, you’ll be able to pan around the full map at any time, and branching pathways will do more than offer you alternate levels within the same world – they can also take you on a detour through a completely different map zone.

This news comes alongside the reveal of Boost Rush mode, an auto-scrolling challenge mode not unlike New Super Mario Bros. 2‘s Coin Rush.

Read on for a list of the worlds Game Informer mentioned in their preview.

So far, the named worlds include Acorn Plains, Sparkling Waters, Frosted Glacier, and Layer Cake Desert – that last one is a pun on “dessert.” They also mentioned having seen areas modeled after Forest of Illusion, the sky worlds of previous Mario games, and a mystery world sheathed in a tornado.

Mass Effect 3’s Leviathan DLC pack is out now, striking a mighty blow to Reaperkind for the teensy asking price of 800 MP. Download the crazy, gorgeous thing here. It’s 1.65 GB in girth.

“Something lurks in the dark corners of space,” intones the overview, in what we imagine to be the quavering tones of Dobby the House-Elf. “Something powerful enough to kill a Reaper. Shepard races to discover the most closely guarded secret in the galaxy before the Reapers silence it forever. Do you dare face the Leviathan?”

Nintendo hopes bigger is better with portable Nintendo 3DS XL

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012
The screen on the Nintendo 3DS XL is 90% bigger than the one on the company's current hand-held device.

With Sunday’s release of the Nintendo 3DS XL handheld console, Nintendo is hoping that bigger is better.The new unit is essentially a big brother to the Nintendo 3DS released in the spring of 2011, but the gaming company has said it plans to continue to produce both types of consoles at least in the near future.

The XL’s main screen is 90% larger than its smaller counterpart, while the 3-D screen on the top half of the clamshell design is nearly the same size as the PS Vita front touch screen. In full 3-D mode, the resolution on the 3DS XL (800px x 320px) is still below the Vita’s (960px x 544px). But you aren’t going to be playing PS games on the 3DS XL or vice versa, so the visual appearance isn’t going to be obvious.

It also comes with a stronger battery (about 3.5 to 6 hours of charge using 3DS software) while not increasing the overall weight of the device. AC adapters are not included for Japanese or European versions but are included for U.S. and Australian distribution.

Everything else pretty much remains the same between the XL and the regular version — front and back cameras, 3-D screen at the top and touch screen at the bottom, circle pad and control pad on the left, buttons on the right. The pointing stylus is stored on the right hand side of the 3DS XL, rather than on the back with the R4 Nintendo 3ds.

The preview 3DS XL unit I was using had a matte finish on the exterior instead of the shiny, glossy finish found on the 3DS. The larger hand-held console also comes with a 4GB SD card included, twice as big as the 2GB card with which the 3DS is outfitted.

If you are thinking of going large, Nintendo has figured out a way to bring all your games with you. Data can be transferred from any DSi, DSi XL or 3DS console onto the 3DS XL system. Connection settings, photos, audio and purchased DSiWare can be shuttled to the new console using a Internet connection between the two systems.

Be warned though. DSiWare save data cannot be transferred, so be prepared to play those games from scratch if you want to move them over.

The larger screen and bigger controls make for easier game play, and the slightly increased weight is negligible. In fact, the hand-held device feels more stable and sturdy with its extra size. I haven’t put it through an accidental “drop test” yet, but it seems like it could take a punch.

The 3-D screen really hasn’t changed, which means if it gave you a headache before, it probably will again. The longer battery life is very nice, especially for those who play on their way to school or work and have to put it away for a while once arriving.

“New Super Mario Bros. 2” will be the featured game for the new hand-held, coming out on the same day in Japan and the United States, but not included with the console. The 3DS XL shows it off nicely with brilliant colors, fluid motion and responsive controls. It is, of course, a Mario game, which means lots of jumping and side-scrolling, but it all looks great on bigger screens.

The Nintendo 3DS XL is everything you are used to in the Nintendo 3DS, but it is a larger, stronger package. The larger screens make it easier to see action and gives players a bit of finesse on the touch screen. Right now, the 3DS XL is not compatible with the Circle Pad Pro controller add-on, but Nintendo said they are planning on releasing one later this year.
