Captain Toad is Nintendo's best new protagonist

My goodness, this website for Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. Our little adventurer can perform such actions as "throw," "dig," and "tumble." I can't take it. Too much. There's a gallery with several new screenshots, including the best of t...

Four new super cute Spelunky toys are inbound

I never got around to buying some of those Spelunky Minis. Now's my chance. Starting tomorrow, Fangamer will have the two-inch PVC figurines back in stock. And there are four new Minis to collect: Yeti King, Old Bitey, Alien Lord, and Anubi...

Alright, I need this Gravity Rush figure in my life

I don't like stuff. Maybe living lean is a product of smaller San Francisco living arrangements, maybe it's a product of semi-frequent moves, but I don't like to own a lot of things. Figures have almost always fallen into this category. Eve...

That sexy aluminum NES is available for pre-order now for $499

[Update: Nintendo asked if we would update this story to say that this is not a legal product. No problem, I said.] Remember that aluminum NES we told you about earlier this year? It's available now. The Analogue NT is a NES/Famicom (region...

Heart Forth, Alicia is the best Kickstarter I've seen in ages

There's been a resurgence of Metroidvania games in recent years thanks to crowdfunding but not all of them have lived up to our lofty ambitions for the genre. Many haven't. As such, I hope you're not so skeptical as to avoid giving Heart F...

The Iconoclasts returns to show off a cool boss fight

It's been some time since we last had a chance to talk about The Iconoclasts, Joakim "Konjak" Sandberg's long-in-development, amazing-looking action-adventure game. Today he shared a video of a boss fight which shows good things come to th...

Analogue Nt is a NES made of aircraft-grade aluminum

I see those plastic-y all-in-one game consoles all the time. I feel drawn to them, but always pass on them in the end. I still have all my old systems, after all, and they all still work. But the Analogue Nt has already won me over, though ...

Gaming Heads' Doom diorama is droolworthy

Gaming Heads is taking pre-orders for its new Doom diorama based on the game's iconic box art. The polystone statue is 12.5 inches tall by 17 inches wide and, okay, I'll stop stalling -- this thing is unsurprisingly not cheap. At least not ...

N++ looks like a good reason to own a PS4

Metanet has taken to the PlayStation Blog to talk about N++, the newest of its difficult ninja platforming games. We knew this was coming and I've been concerned about my controller's well-being as a result, but the studio hasn't said much...

They're finally selling real-life Mario Karts

To be a kid again. Or, a 70-pound adult. That's what it'll take to enjoy the Super Mario Kart Ride-On Vehicle, available in March at Toys"R"Us for $199.99. The kart has working pedals, can go in reverse, and there are tires for on-and off-r...

Tres bien! Atlus announces Persona Q 3DS bundle

And doesn't have a picture to show for it. Damn. I need to see this design. Atlus has confirmed a 3DS XL bundle (for Japan) for when Persona Q drops on June 5 (in Japan). In a typically nice Atlus move, first print copies of the 3DS game wi...

I don't think I'll mind getting lost in The Witness

I'm looking out my window as I type this and what I see is a mostly overcast sky and lots of drab grays and blues. It's sleepy. What I'd rather be looking at are these warm, teeming-with-life screenshots from Jonathan Blow's exploration-puz...

Don't look up: New screenshots of The Forest

Kirby: Triple Deluxe shows well in this extensive footage

Cuphead could be this year's big run-and-gun game

That's my hope, anyway. Cuphead is one of those games I feel bad for not noticing sooner. Sporting a remarkable sense of style and animation, this looks to represent the best of the run-and-gun genre, with developer Studio MDHR citing infl...

Luigi 2DS spotted! It looks better than the Luigi 3DS

Kotaku received some pictures of what appears to be a Luigi-themed 2DS. I want it. It's a simple white with green trimmings (buttons and so on) and a Luigi etched into the back. It's a lot cleaner than the cool, but busy Luigi 3DS. I defini...

Koi-koi! Nintendo's Pokemon hanafuda cards hitting Japan

Remember when Nintendo began as a hanafuda card manufacturer? I don't, because I wasn't alive in 1889, but maybe there are some Highlanders among you fine folk and I'd be remiss if I didn't encourage you to decapitate each other. There can ...
