The weekend is finally here, and we’re ready for some serious game time. The Pure Nintendo team has compiled our own playlist of games we’re catching up on, but what’s been on your gaming agenda recently?

Check out our full playlist below and let us know which games you’re playing right now.



  • Super Mario World (New 3DS): This came pre-installed on my fancy new lime green 3DS. I love being able to play Super Nintendo games on the go, and SMW is one of my favorites.
  • Donkey Kong Country (New 3DS): This was the second game that I downloaded from the eShop after doing my system transfer. I have so many memories playing DKC with my older brothers. Being able to play at work is AWESOME.
  • Picross 6 (3DS): I’m really into doing picross puzzles and this game is packed full of ’em. They’re great if you want to relax or just pass the time.
  • Animal Crossing New Leaf (3DS): Selling my town (for over 20,000,000) bells was well worth it. I’ve been playing everyday trying to create a beautiful colorful town. We’ll see how it turns out. The campsite is a pretty cool update as well. I’ve got some neat furniture that I haven’t seen before.
  • Disney Magical World 2 (3DS): I’m playing this for a review. It’s pretty neat being able to explore and collect new items to customize my character and house.


  • TrevorJust Dance 2017 (Wii U): Been having fun with this title, as you can see from my Just Dance 2017 review. An entertaining way to break a sweat and get some exercise.
  • Mario Party Star Rush (3DS): I should hopefully have our review published early next week. The game is better than I expected, so I’m looking forward to sharing my thoughts.
  • Mr. Pumpkin Adventure (Wii U eShop): One last review game, which I just beat this past week. I need to sort through all of my notes. In the meantime, enjoy this quote …
    “I invested in pumpkins. They’ve been going up the whole month of October and I got a feeling they’re going to peak right around January. Then, bang! That’s when I’ll cash in.” – Homer Simpson.


  • Fire Emblem: Fates (3DS): Xander has been defeated but at what cost?? My siblings are dropping like flies! It’s time to put on a brave face and take on my evil “father” – let’s bring on Chapter 27, the final chapter!
  • Pokémon GO (mobile): Yes I’m still playing, I finally hit level 22! The latest updates definitely improve the overall game, with extra experience points for the first catch of the day plus a bonus after seven straight days of visiting Pokestops.
  • SDK Spriter (Wii U eShop): An interesting little game that’s something creative types might enjoy. It’s well made and easy to pick up – quite relaxing in fact – but might not be to everyone’s tastes. Look out for my review soon.
