demos


Way back in April, we first heard about Uncanny Valley, and we all had a nice juvenile moment of pointing and snickering at pixelated medical diagrams of human genitalia. The trailer also showed slightly less funny stuff: da...


After a fairly enjoyable Mega Man August streak, we're back to the normal routine, and it isn't particularly exciting this week. On the Wii U we have Nobunaga's Ambition, Cubeman 2, and Ice Cream Surfer. For the 3DS, we ...


Today is a massive day for the Nintendo eShop -- one of the biggest in recent memory. On the Wii U we have Mega Man X3 on the Virtual Console, followed by Donkey Kong Jr. Math, SteamWorld Dig, and The Fall. The...


If you're headed to PAX Prime this weekend, first of all, I'm jealous and you should take me with you. Second, you should hit up the Sega booth, where you can get friendly with hands-on demos of Alien: Isolation, Sonic Boom: ...


A demo for Playground Games' Forza Horizon 2 is coming to Xbox One on September 16, just ahead of the September 30 release date. They promise a "brief taste" of what to expect in the full version.  You'll find an Achievements list for Forza Horizon 2 below. Some of the names are super silly.


Today is a classic kind of day in terms of Nintendo Download, with a few re-releases. We have Mega Man 6 headlining the fray, which means that the full NES collection of Mega Man 1-6 is finally available on the...


It's not a very exciting week for Nintendo Download unless you like sales. Fresh on the Wii U Virtual Console we have Mega Man Battle Chip Challenge and Double Dragon II: The Revenge. Also on Wii U there's Gaiabreak...


Kojima's interactive teaser P.T., which we now know is the playable teaser for Silent Hills, was solved in half a day by curious players who persevered all the way to the end. But as Kojima himself revealed during today's pre...


Today is a very Virtual Console-y day on Nintendo Download, with Super Mario Kart, Mega Man 5, and Cybernator coming to the Wii U. Also, Jett Tailfin and Shut the Box come to the Wii U eShop. On the 3DS we have...


It's Mega Man day again! This week, Mega Man Battle Network is hitting the Wii U eShop. If you haven't played the series before, it takes the classic formula and turns it on its head with a card-like grid-based battle sy...


Every week, I choose a game to feature in each issue of Nintendo Download, and Blaster Master is very near and dear to my heart. It was one of the first games I really "got" as a kid, and I spent hours learning twitch re...


The Wii U is taking a week off it seems, as there are only a one game on the menu for today -- Mr. Driller 2 -- a GameBoy Advance Virtual Console title. Little Inferno is discounted by 50% until July 24th....


I came to really appreciate the way Microsoft handled demos on Xbox 360. Xbox Live Arcade titles were required to offer them, and if you liked what you played in the trial, it was super easy to upgrade to the full thing right...


The big highlight for today on Wii U is One Piece Unlimited World Red, be warned Wii U owners -- the download is roughly 11 GB! On the rest of the Wii U side we have Bases Loaded and The Letter. That's all, folks. The 3DS has...


The headliner this week on Wii U is easily Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition, which is a fantastic Metroidvania that any Nintendo fan will love. Check out my full write-up here as well as the original review f...


The time has finally come for Shovel Knight to hit the Wii U and 3DS! You can check out our review here, the differences between the platforms here, and our tips guide here. As for the rest of Wii U land, there's Castlev...


The Wii U is seeing a particularly nice week with Pushmo World, the third game in the Pushmo franchise. Then there's GEOM, How to Survive, Color Zen Kids and Another World - 20th Anniversary Edition. You can al...


I was really hoping for an insanely cool "it's available right now" E3 week eShop announcement, but it was not meant to be. Instead, we have this gigantic Wii U and 3DS digtal sale, lasting until June 16th. In terms of new co...


It's a good week for Nintendo downloads. The Wii U is headlined by the amazing 1001 Spikes, which will be getting a full review soon from Jonathan Holmes. You'll also find How to Train Your Dragon 2, Chubbins, I've Got to Run...


As Stroke 9 once inquired, how many people want to kick some ass? If your answer is a resounding "I do! I do!," you have anger issues. Also, you might enjoy knowing that there's an imminent demo for EA Sports UFC. The bone-br...


The Wii U gets one of its only major releases in sight this year in the form of Mario Kart 8, and it's fantastic -- play it. Also, Ittle Dew drops today, as does Gravity Badgers and the incredible Klonoa: Empire of Dreams (VC...


This week's Wii U offerings are decent, with Street Fighter Alpha 2 (VC), the billionth version of Swords and Soldiers (although this one has separate GamePad and TV multiplayer), Squid's Odyssey, and Fit Music. On the 3DS ...


Oddly enough, the Wii U is getting a "new" eShop release in the form of Wii Party U, which was only available at retail formerly. It's also getting Scram Kitty and his Buddy on Rails, as well as Color Zen. Not the worst week ...


It's Mega Man May over at the Nintendo eShop, which means more old Mega Man games for dedicated fans -- but first, let's see what the Wii U eshop has to offer. Let's see...Wario Land 4 on the GBA Virtual Consol...


It's a pretty exciting week for the 3DS, but first, the Wii U stuff. This week on the Wii U eShop, you can pick up Abyss, Stick it to the Man, and Mach Rider. But the 3DS is really where it's at, with a few major Nintendo rel...


Still not totally sold on Ragnarok Odyssey Ace? Well then, pensive reader, it might delight you to hear that XSEED has a demo up its sleeve ready to play on May 13. In the meantime, the action role-playing game is being kitte...


It's actually a great week for the Wii U in this issue of Nintendo Download, as NES Remix 2 is set to hit the eShop on April 25th, and Child of Light will drop on April 29th. Expect our Child of Light review ne...


This is the week you've all been waiting for, as Super Mario Bros. 3 is hitting the Wii U and 3DS Virtually Consoles -- just in time for the upcoming release of NES Remix 2. The Wii U is also getting Golden Sun, and F-Zero: M...


Longtime Destructoid community member AgentMOO's High Strangeness was back at PAX this year with a nearly done build. With the help of indie publisher Midnight City, High Strangeness is coming out late this year on PC and consoles. Holmes and Ben "AgentMOO" Shostak talked about the "12- bit" adventure and enemies that get more nefarious and capable as you do when you switch to the 16-bit world.


The Wii U is getting even more Game Boy Advance titles this week, in the form of Kirby & The Amazing Mirror as well as WarioWare Inc. Also appearing on the Wii U is My Exotic Farm, and My Farm is getting a perma...


Today is a landmark day for Nintendo, as the Game Boy Advance has hit the Wii U. You can grab Advance Wars, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, and Metroid Fusion for $7.99 each. The Wii U is also getting Batman: Arkham Origin...


As a kid who grew up with both Nintendo and Sega consoles, never in my wildest dreams did I imagine a crossover, but here we are with Wii U Sonic Lost World DLC in the form of The Legend of Zelda Zone. Expect impres...


The Wii U has another relatively slow week with Volleyball, Hello Kitty Kruisers, Pure Chess, and free Wii Sports Club access from March 21st (9AM PST) until March 23rd (12AM PST). There's also a minor sale going on invo...


In Wii U news, Castlestorm has new DLC available and Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels has been added to the Virtual Console. That's it for Wii U news (sadface). Yoshi's New Island is the heavy hitter for the 3DS th...


The Wii U isn't getting much today, as the headliner is NES Open Tournament Golf for the Virtual Console. If you've paying attention, this is one of the inclusions in NES Remix 2, so expect all of those listed games to m...


I found that Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars probably wasn't for me. But I know that some of you were really into it. You made that clear. Well, you can get into it early. Conception II will have a demo on March 25...


It's another big week for the 3DS, and another small one for the Wii U. On the Wii U side, we have My Farm, Renegade (Virtual Console), and Knytt Underground has a sale, bringing it down to $6.50. Not a whole lot on...


The big release this week is clearly Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, which is hitting the Wii U this Friday both digitally and by way of retail. That's about the only real release on Wii U this week though, as the only ...


Over the weekend, La-Mulana 2 broke $200,000 in pledges. That was the amount needed for Nigoro to develop this thing. It's happening. With time to spare, no less. The studio has also released the Tokyo Game Show demo of La-Mu...


It's another slow week for both eShop fronts, as the only "new" addition to the Wii U's marketplace is the Virtual Console game Super C. Spin the Bottle was released some time ago on the Wii U, but today brings a fairly ...
