Virtual Console Verdict: Mega Man Battle Network

I can't remember the first tactical game I ever played. The first one that stands out in my mind is Tactics Ogre, but I'm sure I dabbled in some NES games without truly knowing what I was doing. What I would never expect grow...

Nintendo Download: Mega Man Battle Network

It's Mega Man day again! This week, Mega Man Battle Network is hitting the Wii U eShop. If you haven't played the series before, it takes the classic formula and turns it on its head with a card-like grid-based battle sy...

Mysterious Murasame Castle hitting the 3DS eShop next month

Do you remember that minigame in Nintendo Land that had you throwing shurikens at the screen from your GamePad? It was based off of The Mysterious Murasame Castle, which was developed by Nintendo and released for the Fam...

Nintendo Download: Blaster Master

Every week, I choose a game to feature in each issue of Nintendo Download, and Blaster Master is very near and dear to my heart. It was one of the first games I really "got" as a kid, and I spent hours learning twitch re...

Sega doesn't seem to want its games on the Wii U Virtual Console

This month's Club Nintendo rewards include Paper Mario, Kid Icarus photo
This month's Club Nintendo rewards include Paper Mario, Kid Icarus
by Jordan Devore

The Club Nintendo game rewards for this month are in. Hope you aren't averse to repeats:

  • Donkey Kong Jr. (Wii U) - 200 Coins
  • 3D Classics: Kid Icarus (3DS) - 200 Coins
  • Paper Mario (Wii/Wii U) - 250 Coins
  • Metal Torrent (3DS) - 200 Coins

I'd be all over Paper Mario if it were possible to play on Wii U without using Wii Mode. Like, how sweet would full-on GamePad support be? The sweetest.

Nintendo hasn't yet announced this year's rewards for Elite members who have obtained Gold or Platinum status at Club Nintendo, but that info should be coming before too long.
