Nintendo Download: Bravely Default demo

This is a pretty bizarre issue of Nintendo Download. Nintendo sent over the exact same listing as last week, with the sole addition of the Bravely Default 3DS demo and Mega Man X2 for the Wii U. Those are two killer...

Nintendo is taking the eShop offline today

Here we are. The eShop hasn't been its normal self lately, as some of you may have experienced first hand this week. Nintendo will be taking the storefront offline later today for maintenance. "In an effort to manage the high...

Nintendo Download: Dr. Luigi

Aw yeah Luigi time! Dr. Luigi is hitting the Wii U on the 31st for $14.99. CastleStorm is also a thing, as is Super Punch-Out!!, one of my top 10 favorite SNES games ever. Select Ubisoft titles are also on sale, so check your...

Pokémon Bank and Transporter delayed in the West

After hearing about Nintendo pulling the just-released Pokémon Bank app in Japan due to an overwhelming amount of traffic on the Nintendo Network, I was worried this would happen. Previously scheduled for a December 27...

Nintendo pulls Pokémon Bank to relieve burden on eShop

Ostensibly overburdened by an influx of holiday-induced traffic, the Nintendo Network became virtually unusable yesterday, as scores of eager new Wii U and 3DS owners piled onto the company's servers to set up their systems. ...

Nintendo Download: 3D Streets of Rage

It's time for more Sega 3D Classics this week! But first, the Wii U gets Knytt Underground, Castlevania (NES VC), a Little Inferno discount ($4.99), and a Nano Assault Neo demo. There's not a whole lot to ponder ove...

NES Remix announced for the Wii U, available today

Iwata had yet another announcement to make on this morning's Nintendo Direct, this time somewhat more surprising than Hyrule Warriors. NES Remix was announced for the Wii U, compiling many different games from the NES days i...

Allez cuisine! Double Dragon hits Wii U, 3DS eShop

The original Double Dragon, the game that started it all, is now available on the Wii U and 3DS eShop. I don't know if it still holds up. I can tell you the movie starring Iron Chef America's Chairman does not. I can bet the cartoon doesn't, either. But, in the words of my uncle: that music is still balling. I've looped the trailer a few times already just listening to it.

Nintendo Download: Rush, and more Sega 3D Classics

This isn't a very exciting week for Wii U fans, as you're only getting two [old] additions -- Two Tribes' Rush has been remade, and Double Dragon is live on the Virtual Console. That's about it, folks. As usual the ...

Knytt Underground comes to the Wii U December 19

NightSky was a perfect fit for Nintendo consoles. The game felt like one big, surreal Metroid morph ball adventure. The same could be said for Knytt Undergound, another dreamlike, ball-focused platformer from Nicklas Ny...

Nintendo Download: The Legend of the Mystical Ninja
