Your player character is the main hero in the new Fire Emblem, coming 2016

[Update: Watch the trailer!] The new Fire Emblem trailer is just as amazing as the announcement trailer. There's also deep talk of fate and choosing a path (some stark black and white dichotomy) between siding with the peace...

This fall, Nintendo plans to roll out its much-talked about amiibo cards. These let players forego the difficult to obtain amiibo, and just buy (presumably cheaper) cards. It's currently unknown if amiibo figures will release...

Watch the 'no joke' Nintendo Direct here for 3DS, Wii U news

Today's Nintendo Direct is no joke. That is to say that it is not an April Fools' joke, but, more idiomatically, it is no joke -- 48 dang minutes. That's 48 minutes devoted to the most important stats, scores, standings, and...

Club Nintendo posts Platinum and Gold rewards photo
Club Nintendo posts Platinum and Gold rewards
by Chris Carter

Club Nintendo is coming to a close, and the ability to register any Coins ended yesterday, but there's one last swan song for the service -- the Platinum and Gold rewards. Today, Nintendo posted said rewards on their site, and they're all-digital yet again.

Platinum members can net Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Mario Golf: World Tour, Mario Kart 7, Mario Party: Island Tour, New Super Mario Bros.2, Yoshi's New Island, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, NES Remix 2, Punch-Out!!, Pushmo World, and Ultimate NES Remix.

Gold members (as well as Platinum if you want to dip below your reward grade) have a more retro-flavored selection, with Crashmo, Freakyforms, Pushmo, Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario Bros. Deluxe, The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages or Seasons, The Mysterious Murasame Castle, Advance Wars, The Legend of Zelda, Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga, Metroid Fusion, The Lost Levels, Super Mario Kart, WarioWare, Inc, or Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3.

Of course the site is getting hit pretty hard, but you'll have some time to redeem them. Confused as to what to get? I linked all of our reviews and pertinent coverage for the non-retro games above. For the Platinum level I can suggest New Leaf, New Super Mario Bros 2, (especially if you have a spouse or friend who also wants to pick it up for multiplayer or the generally sweet DLC), and Tropical Freeze.
