Wario Land: Shake It!

Wario Land: Shake It! is coming to the Wii U this week

Wario Land: Shake It! is a really underrated game that doesn't get talked about nearly enough. Hell, you could probably levy that same complaint against the Wario series as a whole, but I digress. For those of you who enjoy great platf...

Not April Fools': Nintendo will mail you a Shadow Mewtwo card for Pokken Tournament

Nintendo has always made it clear that prospective Pokken Tournament buyers would only get the Shadow Mewtwo card if they bought the game physically, but it's going the extra mile with a new promotion. Provided that you have signed up for t...

Starfy is coming to Super Mario Maker

Starfy is a lesser-known character from the Nintendo universe, but that might be because he's not wholly owned by Nintendo. In fact, he's co-owned by Tose, creators of the Game & Watch franchise, as the Legend of Starfy games were only ...

amiibo Challenge review
Nintendo backed itself into a corner with amiibo in terms of software. Now that the things are wildly popular, it's at a crossroads. Does it gate substantial content behind them and piss off casual fans who don't want to buy ...   read
