Nintendo says third party games look much better on Wii U

Reggie Fils-Aime took to CNN this weekend to deliver a steaming plate of juicy lies. In a talk with Kristie Lu Stout, the beefy boss of Nintendo of America claimed that the Wii U's third-party games looked "dramatically...

Here are the New Super Mario Bros. 2 DLC deets for the US photo
Here are the New Super Mario Bros. 2 DLC deets for the US
by Tony Ponce

Last week, Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata held a "Chotto Nintendo Direct" to announce DLC level packs for New Super Mario Bros. 2 in Japan. Today, Nintendo of America purple Pikmin Reggie Fils-Aime detailed how the new DLC will work on this side of the Pacific.

While Japan will receive the new goodies today, we'll have to wait until October 4. Each of the three packs, which contain three Coin Rush levels apiece, will set you back $2.50. The "Gold Coin Pack" is intended for any ol' Mario player, the "Coin Challenge Pack A" is ripe for intermediate players, and the insane-looking "Nerve Wrack Pack" is reserved for Mario veterans. As in Japan, a second and third batch of stages will arrive towards the ends of October and November.

In regards to the video above, I'm disappointed that Reggie didn't assume a polygonal form as Iwata did. It could have been glorious.

We have a decent amount of information about the Wii U so far, but there's nearly nothing in regards to online specifics. That goes for detailed information on the Miiverse, online infrastructure, Virtual Console options...

Exclusive: Reggie Fils-Aime and the Purple Pikmin

Reggie Fils-Aime has always been tough guy to read. Sometimes it seems like he could give a toss about videogames and the people who play them. At other times, he seems to have a genuine passion for producing videogames that...

No multi-touch on Wii U, wouldn't 'feel right'

Nintendo beef-boy Reggie Fils-Aime has said that, very much like $99 tablets available to buy at CVS, the Wii U controller touch screen will not feature multi-touch. There shall be no pinching, swirling, or anything in betwee...

Non-Specific Action Figure has the last word of E3

Seriously, with all the nothing going on in terms of announcements, Non-Specific Action Figure really did do the best job.   Also, I love how this entire segment looks and sounds like a WWE backstage promo.

Nintendo: Wii U won't mean the end of the Wii

Nintendo of America, the company that has barely supported the Wii all year, has somehow had the temerity to claim that the Wii's not going anywhere, not even after the Wii U launches. Reggie Fils-Aime says the system is stil...
