Shulk is the first revealed exclusive amiibo, and GameStop has the rights

It's been known that Nintendo planned to decentralize the way it distributed amiibo. That is, not all of them will be readily and equally available everywhere. Company president Satoru Iwata told investors recently that Ninte...

Nintendo hopes to strike balance with new Smash Bros. 3DS patch

Fighting games constantly strive for the fabled perfect balance that turns the contest into a pure standoff of skill rather than giving one player an edge based on character. Nintendo's taking more steps to inch closer to its...

FUGGETABOUTIT!!

What, no "If you need to learn how to talk to a lady, ask your mom"? At least this probably-old-but-new-to-me Bayonetta 2 soundboard has Enzo's catchphrase. I feel bad for making it to the end of the game before realizing he'd been left behind. What a goof. A foul-mouthed, lovable goof.

Want amiibo, but hate decisions? Get them sent to you at random

The craving is real.

We'll have to StreetPass to catch Latios and Latias in the Pokémon remakes

In order to reach and catch Latios in Pokémon Alpha Sapphire and Latias in Pokémon Omega Ruby, we'll need an Eon Ticket. And to get one of those, well, it's kind of a pain in the ass. Here in the US, The Pok&eac...

The Smash Bros. GameCube controller has a big ol' long cord

Look, we know the reason that you keep coming back to Destructoid is for the hot updates on controller cord length. We're reasonable people here (except Jordan, he insists that Hamza refer to him as "King Xerxes"), so we'll g...

Yoshi's Woolly World has a stage in Super Smash Bros. Wii U

I'm trying not to overdo it with Super Smash Bros. coverage but that's easier said than done when director Masahiro Sakurai is out there talking up a stage based on Yoshi's Woolly World. I'm only human, damn it. A human who l...
