Thank Iwata: The Wii U has folders now!

I was running out of space to put things on my Wii U. No I don't mean storage space, I'm talking about the UI in general. With four pages of Virtual Console games to my name and two pages of eShop titles alone, I had to delet...

My favorite part of Hyrule Warriors is not at all what I was expecting

I'm only several hours into Hyrule Warriors and while there's already a lot to like here, I think I've figured out what my favorite part of the game is: a song. Specifically, "Zelda's Lullaby." It has been featured prominent...

Giant characters in Super Smash Bros. are a glitch, sometimes

Giant characters are nothing new for the Super Smash Bros. series but not like this. Not like this. It seems that in Smash Bros. for 3DS, Yoshi's Egg Lay move has the ability to make large CPU characters even larger in Multi...

Nintendo is serious with 3DS themes, will have nearly 50 in Japan at launch

When I first heard of the upcoming 3DS theme concept, I wasn't super hopeful. I thought that Nintendo would probably put up a few major ones (Zelda and Mario), and completely forget about it over the course of a few weeks. Bu...

Everyone is fabulous in this Japanese New 3DS commercial

Nintendo has a New 3DS TV spot making the rounds, and it shows off some strange new outfits for some iconic Nintendo characters. I'm talking top hat Link, King Pikachu, and a Bowser that's too swanky for his own good. In all...

Next month's Hyrule Warriors DLC adds Epona

Hyrule Warriors will have no shortage of DLC, that's for sure. The first major add-on, Master Quest Pack, hits on October 16 and includes a new weapon, scenario, Adventure mode map, and costumes. Funny thing about that "weapo...

Miiverse gets another update that enhances the web version

It seems like the Miiverse gets a small update every other week, but progress is progress! Yesterday the service was given a minor patch that changed the search function's place in the UI, and made it a little easier to find....

Review: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS photo
Review: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS
by Chris Carter

Super Smash Bros. and I go back a long way. When the first game was released in 1999, I didn't drive. Heck, I didn't even have a Nintendo 64 at that time. But I had a Smash Bros. addiction, and would spend hours upon hours at friends' houses, often staging sleepovers just so we could play more. It was probably the first game I ever put over a thousand hours into.

My Melee addiction was even worse. With wheels, I could drive to local tournaments and hone my craft. I had "training buddies" that I'd sit for hours and play with, trading new strategies along the way. I had groups who played all items on random levels, I had friends who played Final Destination no items only, and I had acquaintances who played a mix of both. However you shake it, Melee may be my most-played game of all time.

But when Brawl came out, a lot of the groups I had been playing with for all these years kind of fell off the map. They either continued to play Melee regardless, or just quit Smash entirely. It was an odd time seeing a franchise that I had enjoyed so much fall off like that in my personal circles, and from what I've seen over the past few years, I wasn't alone. It wasn't a bad game -- it just didn't set off that spark in me that 64 and Melee did before it.

Enter Smash 3DS. Not only has it rekindled my love for the series, but I have a feeling that once the Wii U version hits, living rooms will be smashing for hours all over again.

The Dynasty Warriors team dreams about doing a Star Wars game

Omega Force has gotten its hands on properties like Gundam, One Piece, and now The Legend of Zelda and Dragon Quest -- but, in an ideal world, the studio would be working on something bigger: Star Wars. Yes, a Star Wars Musou...

New 3DS coming to Australia, New Zealand November 21

The first ever Australian Nintendo Direct comes with some good news. The New 3DS and New 3DS XL launch in Japan in October. We were told not to expect an international release in 2014 -- and we still shouldn't, if "we" means North America or Europe. Australia and New Zealand, however, get both new 3DS models on November 21
