New Pokemon Shuffle update makes the game slightly less sleazy


But it's not enough
May 27
One of the biggest problems with Pokemon Shuffle, beyond its exploitative item system, was the energy mechanic. In short, you could only play a scant five rounds at a time before you had to wait 30 minutes per round to rechar... read

Lord of Magna is nearly here, so have a website and a tutorial video


Have it all!
May 21
Lord of Magna looks like a fun little strategy romp on 3DS. I haven't played it yet, but I'm hoping to get my hands on it soon. In the meantime, XSEED has opened up a new website for the game, and dropped a new tutorial video that explains the combat a bit. In short, it looks a lot like Valkyria Chronicles, where it's more action-based, sans grid. I'm down with that. read

Next month, Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven will arrive on the 3DS, both digitally and physically. It's a strategy RPG that features a pretty interesting cast, which you can check out in the official video above.

Nintendo took to Facebook today to assuage fears of US amiibo restocks, noting that Marth, and "a few other amiibo like Meta Knight and Ike" (gotta love the vagueness, like they don't know who exactly was reprinted) will... read
Strechmo review photo
Sure, I'll push some mo'
Nintendo has been silently crafting some killer franchises over the years. While he may not light up sales as much as Mario, after four years, I'd consider Pushmo's Mallo to be a fully-fledged Nintendo character. Now he's back in his fourth game on the 3DS in the form of Stretchmo, which adopts a rather odd free-to-play scheme that essentially functions as a demo. read feature
