Miiverse art shows up as graffiti in Splatoon


Prepare for dickbutts everywhere
May 18
Since it was brought to Wii U, Miiverse has been a home for a pretty even split of amazing art, terrible stick figure comics and rough sketches of genitalia. Now, prepare for Splatoon to be invaded with a similar mix of commu... read

[Spoilers] Splatoon timeline partially revealed through unlockables


Not what I expected
May 17
The image above is not the official Splatoon timeline. It's a goof created by a fan. Still, it shows that some people are already invested enough in the game to start pondering where it fits in the larger Nintendo universe, d... read

That time Sharp built an NES into a television

Nintendo talks restocks of Marth, Ike, and Meta Knight amiibo, but again, it's 'limited'


Haha, limited to disappointment

Nintendo took to Facebook today to assuage fears of US amiibo restocks, noting that Marth, and "a few other amiibo like Meta Knight and Ike" (gotta love the vagueness, like they don't know who exactly was reprinted) will... 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
