You may have noticed that there’s lots of Nintendo happening on my Instagram recently – it seems that when it comes to games and kids’ entertainment, the blog follows my kid. We received a brand spanking new Nintendo 3DS for review this week, and I hid it for a few days until The Critter made some good grades and did a few good deeds. When I gave it to him yesterday, I realized that it probably made him happier than most anything I’ve ever done – I think he actually had mist in his eyes. He’s very happy to be my “tester”, dove right in, and was able to play with very little interference from me, other than to set the parental controls. I already really like everything about the device, especially the easily accessed information on the Nintendo site, which explains everything a parent would want to know, and that the games rated E for Everyone.
Also being released TODAY is the Yo-Kai Watch 2, which is a game that can be played either on a the watch or the Nintendo 3DS, complete with an adorable city and characters that we love. This post from The Verge really helped me understand the worlds so I have an even higher appreciation for the design and layers that help me relate to my kiddo. The new watch can even project the characters onto the wall!
I really have to thank the folks at Nintendo for making my kid think I’m cool again – I brought home a personalized shout out video just for him from the Yo-Kai Watch Event proving I had met Evan from EvanTubeHD, and now I’m the best mom ever!
