Nintendo Download: Gunman Clive 2

The Wii U eShop is getting more exciting today with the release of Metroid Prime Trilogy for $9.99. I still have my lovely hard copy safe with the rest of my Metroid collection, but considering how rare it is, I'm g...

Quick! Majora's Mask New 3DS, Skull Kid figure back on Nintendo's UK shop

The much sought after Majora's Mask New 3DS XL is once again up for sale, with exclusive Skull Kid not-amiibo, on Nintendo's UK store. Grab one if you're still trying (or maybe Best Buy cancelled yours and you missed out on a free one).

3DS browser exploit makes GBC roms playable

Nintendo is a little bit useless when it comes to putting games out on the Virtual Console in a timely manner, that in and of itself is certainly not news. Since the company started dabbling with downloadable retro software ...

Review: New Nintendo 3DS XL

Nintendo has an interesting history in terms of portables. Outside of the rare add-on like the expansion pack for the Nintendo 64 or the Game Boy Player for the GameCube, they play it rather conservatively when it comes to consoles.

But for their portable line, yowza do they go all out. Colors, new styles, paint jobs -- heck, it'll take you half a day to sift through this massive list of 3DS iterations. So here we are with the "New" 3DS, a moniker Nintendo has used far too often.

In this case, it's somewhat justified.

Quickly now, children: More Majora's Mask 3DS XLs pop up

[Update: Well, that's all folks] Target up and decided to take Majora's Mask 3DS XL pre-orders at midnight (PST) last night and they sold out in minutes. The system is up now for pre-order at Fry's, where your best buys are always at, guaranteed. Try to snag one here if you don't want to try for a free one from Nintendo. In bocca al lupo!

Nintendo Download: Citizens of Earth

The headliner this week is definitely Citizens of Earth on the Wii U eShop. Brittany didn't think it was the second coming of EarthBound, but there were some redeeming qualities -- maybe it's best to wait on the fence fo...

Nintendo: New 3DS XL doesn't include AC adapter to cut costs

Yesterday, Nintendo announced the New 3DS XL for North America. It's coming out February 13 for $200. Dampening this excitement was word that Nintendo has no plans to release the smaller size New 3DS in North America. That an...

Nintendo Download: 3D After Burner II

On the Wii U, we have Street Fighter 2010: The Final Fight on the Virtual Console. Nintendo calls this an "NES classic," but I beg to differ. Also on the Wii U eShop, there's Electroic Super Joy: Groove City, Family Tennis SP...
