2K Announces Carnival Games For Nintendo Switch

I find the only time I play a Nintendo game nowadays is when the whole family is together. That’s why it’s pretty cool to hear that 2K is bringing Carnival Games to the Nintendo Switch on November 6, 2018. This is one of those games you don’t have to think too hard about, rather just enjoy that you are playing a game and many people must enjoy it has sold over 9.5 million copies worldwide.

The game is fun because you can either play by yourself or play with four other people, which makes it more fun. Play everything from ring toss, ball horse racing, and brand new attractions like drone racing and cosmic bowling.

Carnival Games will be available on Nintendo Switch for $39.99. Learn more about the game at www.2k.com/carnivalgames.

Nintendo Brings a New Element to the World of Gaming with 3DS This March

It was announced this week that on March 27, Nintendo will introduce a new portable entertainment system in 3D and without the need for special 3D glasses.“Nintendo 3DS is a category of one – the experience simply doesn’t exist anywhere else,” said Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime. “You have to see Nintendo 3DS to believe it. And it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before.”

Nintendo 3DS includes two screens. The bottom touch screen makes use of a telescoping stylus that is stored in the unit itself. The top screen displays 3D visuals to the naked eye. Looking at the screen is like peering through a window into a world where characters and objects have true depth. The system also has a 3D Depth Slider that lets players select the level of 3D they enjoy the most. The 3D effect can be ratcheted up to the highest level, scaled back to a more moderate setting or even turned off completely.

A built-in motion sensor and gyro sensor can react to the motion and tilt of the system, so whether players are twisting their systems side to side or moving them up and down, their motion-compatible Nintendo 3DS games respond instantly. Nintendo 3DS can also play Nintendo DS game cards with their original 2D visuals. The system also includes a slot for an SD memory card. To help users get started, every system comes with a 2GB SD memory card (though owners can provide whatever size they like).

During the launch window (between the March 27 launch date and the E3 Expo in early June) more than 30 games will be available to Nintendo 3DS owners. The glasses-free 3D gaming system comes packed with features at a retail price of $249.99 starting March 27.
