Target to close all 133 stores in Canada, where the Rosalina amiibo is exclusive

Things haven't been looking good for Nintendo and its retailer-exclusive amiibo initiative. Toys"R"Us has bungled pre-orders so many times it's hard to tell if anyone will actually get their  Lucario amiibo at this point...

Ready for Hyrule Warriors' Majora's Mask DLC? If not, grind these levels

I'm continually amazed and frightened by how much mileage I've gotten out of Hyrule Warriors. This game is massive without DLC, and with it, god help us all -- it just keeps going. After regularly playing since launch in late...

Nintendo made a clay Wii U GamePad for this delightful Kirby trailer

This Kirby and the Rainbow Curse trailer is like an abbreviated version of the Japanese trailer we saw last month. It once again touches on the game's claymazing intro, four-person co-op, and amiibo support for Kirby, Meta Knight, and King Dedede, but it's just so gosh-darned cute. This is out exclusively for Wii U on February 20, 2015. Who's in?

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker will get amiibo support on March 20

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker will be getting its long-awaited amiibo support on March 20. The game will use the new Toad amiibo, which is set to arrive as part of the Mario-specific line. This must be why Nintendo has been quiet about amiibo support for the game -- it was waiting to announce the all-new Mario figures. It makes sense, since Toad isn't a Super Smash Bros. fighter.
