Nintendo brought a lot of games to E3 2013. Even if they didn’t, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a new Mario Kart, seeing as how it’s one of their most popular games. I took to the demo on display to see how the game was shaping up compared to the rest of the series.
My first impression of the game More >
This E3 we heard that Nintendo was not going to be having its normal presentation at the Nokia theater. It was a tad strange considering the numerous times that Nintendo had attended in such a way over the years. Well, I have to say one thing: Nintendo brought the fun. While other developers are More >
So, there’s this thing called E3 that occurs next week. If you’re lucky, you’re going to be available next week on Tuesday at 7am PST. At that specific time, Nintendo will blow your minds with Mario Kart Wii U, Super Smash Bros. Wii U, and a new 3D Mario game for Wii U. Other games will probably More >
Sure there are two good Zelda games on the 3DS eShop this week, but there’s something perhaps a bit more important than those: a game made by Monolith Soft that contains Sega, Namco Bandai, and Capcom characters.
These kind of mashups are relatively common in Japan, but they don’t often reach our More >
The minis are on the move this week to the 3DS eShop. Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move is the latest puzzle game from Nintendo that should help to quell the boredom at the bus stop.
The game is somewhat similar to Pipe Dream (or the Bioshock hacking game) in that you are placing tracks More >
Nintendo has released a major system update for the Wii U, which you can download today. The update includes improvements to stability and performance, as well as better features and new services.
- The time has been reduced for Wii U boot time, launching built-in applications, exiting software and More >
Just when you thought you had enough old-school excitement for the day via the DuckTales Remastered announcement, Capcom pulls another hunk of loot out of the dungeon. Dungeons and Dragons: Tower of Doom and Dungeons and Dragons: Shadow over Mystara are both getting the HD treatment. Sure they’re More >
Nintendo has caught wind of the only-available-shortly-after-purchase dlc trend, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity being the latest host to that strategy. The game will be available on March 24 at retail and via the 3DS eShop. The Poké Forest dungeon will be available for free in-game More >
The Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate demo for 3DS is now available for all those who wish to vanquish evil (well, you know, for at least another year or two). The full version will be available on March 5th. In Wii U news, Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien, starring that More >
As a response from public feedback about the fact that Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is going to have region-locked online, Capcom announced that there will be a patch released shortly after the game’s launch that will allow cross-region play between NA and EU, allowing the two countries to get More >
If there’s ever been a good time to check out the Monster series, it’s now. The Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate demo has just been unleashed onto the 3DS and Wii U eShops. Grab your over-sized sword and head out onto the digital battlefield.
However, if RPG adventuring isn’t what you want at the More >
After E3 2012, many people were thinking that ZombiU was not only one of the coolest games for Wii U, but that maybe it should have its own hardware bundle. While it’s a little rare for Nintendo to give a third party game such exposure, ZombiU should help to promote the system to older gamers More >
Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 is hitting the Wii U eShop with an emphatic WATATATATATATATATATAAAA. Seriously though, it’s really cool to see that Nintendo is digging a niche for Japanese games that would not normally get a chance outside of Japan. Thus far their efforts have somewhat been More >
The 3DS eShop is about to be trampled upon by Fire Emblem fans trying to procure their digital copies (February 4th). The demo is out, and based on that, it has great production values and localization, and it’s quite a challenge. Newcomers, don’t be too frightened; there’s an easy mode available. More >
Nintendo is celebrating the 30th anniversary of its first foray into the console market by discounting several games on the Wii U Virtual Console. Each game will be available for approximately one month, for 30 cents. The first game to grace your screens is one of the originals: Balloon Fight More >
Oh Nintendo, you big tease. In the final minutes of the Nintendo Wii U Direct video, Satoru Iwata showed off a video showcasing a new game being developed by Monolith Soft, the team behind Xenoblade and Xenosaga.
It could be a sequel to Xenoblades or a whole new game that might fit into the Xeno More >
Nintendo’s Satoru Iwata say it’s too early to show off much of the game, probably because they want to tease us way more leading up to E3. That would make more sense as Nintendo put in a lot of money to get this game to be a Wii U exclusive.
There are two videos. One is a 50-second mini teaser More >
During the Nintendo Wii U Direct video, a handful of new games were announced, including “The Wonderful 101″ being developed by Platinum Games (Bayonetta, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Anarchy Reigns).
The game seems to have quite a mix of gameplay. The trailer showcases a Pikmin-esque style on More >
This morning Nintendo released a new Nintendo Wii U Direct video showcasing its plans for the Wii U over the course of 2013, leading up to E3. Some amazing titles were announced and shown off like Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, a new Yoshi game, an HD port of Windwaker and more including some More >
Aside from the fact that Nintendo is now tossing its hat into the realm of HD remakes, they’re doing it in a very smart way: they’re specifically using it to tide Zelda fans over until the next “real” Zelda launches on the Wii U. Wind Waker HD is scheduled to release on Wii U in Fall 2013 with More >
Capcom released two Resident Evil titles on consoles in 2012, but arguably the one on 3DS is the one that fans of the series were really content with. Sticking with the horror formula of the past games, Resident Evil: Revelations brought Capcom’s “A” game, with visuals no one realized the 3DS was More >
Here’s your chance to defeat two of the games that have haunted many players for years. You’ve probably played several of Mega Man’s progeny, but it’s nice to take a look back at history to see how things got started. You might be surprised at how little has changed.
As for Super Mario Bros. 2, More >
As you may or may not already know Dark souls II is currently in production, with the game itself planned for release on the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. For some, the fact that they left out the Wii U is a bit of a surprise. Some others in that particular group also wanted to try to rectify that.

Oh Nintendo you sneaky guys. We recently posted about the mandatory 5 GB install that can brick your Wii U system. If anything interrupts the download, a new update appears and says, “Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user More >
That pesky day-one 5GB install that you have to download when first starting the Wii U is going to be around until early 2013. Currently Nintendo head Reggie Fils-Aime has announced that the next few shipments of Wii Us will still require you to have plenty of patience before you get to enjoy the More >
