Low sales occur more than you'd think
May 20
The Wii U and 3DS eShops (the latter in particular) are a great source of original games. While disc-based titles are often thrown by the wayside by third-parties on the Wii U, there's a ton of exclusive content on there that... read

Strechmo review photo
Sure, I'll push some mo'
Nintendo has been silently crafting some killer franchises over the years. While he may not light up sales as much as Mario, after four years, I'd consider Pushmo's Mallo to be a fully-fledged Nintendo character. Now he's back in his fourth game on the 3DS in the form of Stretchmo, which adopts a rather odd free-to-play scheme that essentially functions as a demo. read feature
