Shovel Knight amiibo probably coming to US early next year

Really early
Sep 30
// CJ Andriessen
Shovel Knight, the greatest hero to wield a shovel since The Shoveler, is getting his own amiibo. That we know. We also know this future garage sale item will most likely be hitting stores in Europe this November. What we don...

Zip Lash may be 'the last chance' for Chibi-Robo

That's the latest word from Nintendo
Sep 30
// Jordan Devore
I have a browser tab open for a used copy of Chibi-Robo, and I don't trust myself to walk away. It's one of the few GameCube games I regret missing. But $60, if I'm lucky? I don't know. My mind is on the delightful household ...

Those hard-to-find amiibo will soon be easier to find

Initiate Protocol Unicorn Restock
Sep 30
// Brett Makedonski
As of late, anyone who has really wanted to get their hands on all the amiibo have been able to. Japanese and European restocks of rare figures happened, and importing them at a reasonable price was possible. But, it's not li...

PSA: Club Nintendo Europe is closing today

End of an era
Sep 30
// Chris Carter
For whatever reason, Club Nintendo Europe survived the purge (ha, like the movie The Purge, get it Morty?) recently, and has clung to life until this week. As of today, the service will be discontinued. Now is the time where ...

BioWare announces new Mass Effect theme park ride

'Entertainment innovation" coming 2016
Sep 30
// Vikki Blake
A gaming franchise isn't a gaming franchise these days unless it has its own theme park ride. Nintendo, Ubisoft... they're all at it. And now, BioWare is too. The developer has announced that a new "3D adventure" Ma...

Hey Smash Bros. fans, guess what? A bunch of new content for Super Smash Bros. just dropped on Wii U and 3DS. The Wii U version of the game has had the pirate ship level from Brawl ($2 or £1.79) added to the mix, ...

Dig into an amiibo card and this is what you'll find

RIP Walker
Sep 29

In the name of science, Michibiku tore into a duplicate Animal Crossing amiibo card to see what the innards would look like. About what you'd expect, really: a little chip and not much else. "Surprisingly, the tech isn't that...

Mario Tennis fills the void left by Star Fox Zero

November 20, 2015
Sep 29
// Jordan Devore
Nintendo says Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash will release for Wii U on November 20, 2015. (Which, as you might recall, was when we were originally going to get Star Fox Zero before it slipped to 2016.) In response, people on Twitt...

Even though Line launched some time ago, I first learned about it while visiting Japan last week. Everyone uses it, and advertisements and promotions for it were everywhere -- there's no escaping it. Thankfully the interface ...

// Kyle MacGregor
West Coast Customs, the auto shop featured in MTV's Pimp My Ride series, apparently took a break from its usual work outfitting 1997 Jeep Cherokees with back-seat Jacuzzis and subwoofers designed to shatter your eardrums to recreate a couple vehicles from Mario Kart. Pretty Pimpin'...

Zelda: Tri Force Heroes' UK trailer is significantly less weird than the Japanese one

Less crying king
Sep 28

The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes kind of snuck up on me. It's coming out in less than a month, and it feels like it was only just revealed. I'm looking forward to the Four Swords-esque cooperative scheme for sure, a...

Another day, another Unreal Engine 4 demo. This time, CryZENx brings us a rendition of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, complete with transformations and Fierce Deity Link. Somehow, despite the more realistic look, th...

After five years, Nintendo discounts an uneven list of 3DS games

Games for cheap you might not want?
Sep 28
// Steven Hansen
Nintendo games age somewhere in between a wine and a new car. We keep getting older and they just stay the same (price). The exception is in the "Nintendo Selects" line, which takes games that have already sold very well and ...

If you've been thinking about upgrading to New 3DS but don't want the XL model, today is the day. The standard New 3DS is out now in North America along with some swappable cover plates. For the time being, the only way to ge...

Today, the Retro 3-Pack amiibo set went on sale, consisting of Duck Hunt, R.O.B., and Game & Watch. It's available for $34.99, and in an unprecedented manner, Nintendo seems to have overproduced this particular set, as it...

A full amiibo card collection will cost about $100 if you're a social creature

That's definitely a best-case scenario
Sep 25
// Brett Makedonski
Collecting amiibo has, to this point, been largely an exercise in madness. Nintendo has shellacked us with a flurry of figures from across several lines, brands, and degrees of availability. At least we knew what we were gett...

I already know John Leguizamo and his inability to smile are handsome. It's just nice to hear Miyamoto say it. MTV International asked Shigeru Miyamoto and Takashi "Ten Ten" Tezuka who would be right for a theoretical Super ...

It looks like my live-action Legend of Zelda dream casting is coming to fruition, even if the television series itself isn't. While many people argued with me in the comments in this article that Nintendo should subvert audi...

One of my biggest pet peeves when it comes to games is an over-commitment to secrecy. Ok, I get that most big games need massive, hype-ridden PR campaigns, but Jesus, give us a bit of info every once in a while before you cha...
