You’ll have to purchase 3DS menu themes ⊟

Maybe you assumed this, but I just ran across this bit in yesterday’s 3DS news press release: “Themes will be available for purchase from a Theme Shop that will be added to the Home menu.”

So it’s a separate shop with a separate icon? Weird. But the whole thing actually seems smart, I must grudgingly admit. It’s kind of a lot of work to make custom icons and music for each theme, so it wouldn’t make sense to make it free; and impulse-buy things like this will probably be a tempting use of leftover eShop funds.

Interestingly, for each of the custom faceplates Nintendo showed for the standard-sized 3DS yesterday, there seemed to be a matching Home menu theme. I wonder if the faceplates come with themes?

Golden Sun Released for Wii U!

The day has come for any and all Wii U owning Golden Sun fans to have a nostalgic dip back into the game that started it all.. or maybe even persuade their friends to get into it, hopefully introducing some new fans to the series we love! The game should be releasing within the next few hours in both PAL and NTSC regions, so have fun! And who knows, maybe if it sells well enough, they’ll consider bringing it to 3DS too for all those who haven’t got a Wii U?
