Mega Man 5 hits Wii U, Mega Man StreetPass puzzle hits 3DS

Rehashing is not new for Capcom. Still, does it feel like, just maybe, the excitement over Keiji Inafune's two not-Mega Men has spurred Capcom to release a bunch of Mega Man stuff this month? Maybe. Mega Man 5 ...

Review: Steel Empire photo
Review: Steel Empire
by Chris Carter

Steel Empire is a game that not many people were able to experience, sadly. As a child, you likely only had access to either a Super Nintendo or Sega Genesis, which cut out a ton of potential classics for you to play and cherish as time's cold embrace passed you by.

I was very lucky to experience it for a few brief days attending a friend's house many years ago, and now, thanks to the magic of porting, everyone can give it a go on the 3DS. As long as the price point isn't too rich for your blood, you should jump on this opportunity.

Nintendo Download: Mega Man Battle Network

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...

Nintendo Download: Blaster Master

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...

Review: Squids Odyssey photo
Review: Squids Odyssey
by Darren Nakamura

Splatoon might be getting a lot of hype for Wii U squid battling, but it is not the first game featuring a squid squad to grace the console. Earlier this year, Squids made its jump from iOS to the Wii U with Squids Odyssey, and it even blazed a trail for cross buy on Nintendo systems.

Squids combines two disparate gameplay elements: tactical role-playing and skill-based slingshot physics. Squids Odyssey takes the original game, the sequel Squids Wild West, and adds in even more levels, characters, and hats into an impressively large package. That said, the package seems better suited for mobile than home console.

Wow, the Cat Mario Show is way more horrible than it sounds

When you see it, you think, "Hey, puppet cat Mario, puppet cat Peach doing a cute puppet show. Cool." And then you hear it and oh my word please stop talking. I feel like companies are quite careful about their characters' p...

Don't worry, Bayonetta 2 will come packaged with the original game as well

Concerned over how you're going to pick up Bayonetta in addition to its sequel when it finally hits the Wii U? Not sure how you want to purchase the game so that you'll get a copy of the first game? Worry no more -- at least,...

This month's Club Nintendo rewards include Paper Mario, Kid Icarus photo
This month's Club Nintendo rewards include Paper Mario, Kid Icarus
by Jordan Devore

The Club Nintendo game rewards for this month are in. Hope you aren't averse to repeats:

  • Donkey Kong Jr. (Wii U) - 200 Coins
  • 3D Classics: Kid Icarus (3DS) - 200 Coins
  • Paper Mario (Wii/Wii U) - 250 Coins
  • Metal Torrent (3DS) - 200 Coins

I'd be all over Paper Mario if it were possible to play on Wii U without using Wii Mode. Like, how sweet would full-on GamePad support be? The sweetest.

Nintendo hasn't yet announced this year's rewards for Elite members who have obtained Gold or Platinum status at Club Nintendo, but that info should be coming before too long.

Pokémon Trading Card Game comes to 3DS in Europe this week

I had a binder specifically for my collection of Pokémon cards but never knew how to properly play the game. Which was fine, because they were fun enough to look at. I did, however, play a ton of Pokémon Trading...

Unwind with this Pokémon Art Academy speed painting video

I sometimes watch an episode of Bob Ross' The Joy of Painting to relax before bed. He's just got one of those soothing voices, y'know? This how-to-draw video for Pokémon Art Academy is similar thanks to some laid-back...
