Three decades after its original release, Duck Hunt is making a return to consoles. The classic shooter is coming to Wii U on December 25, Nintendo of America announced today. Duck Hunt debuted in Japan in 1984 before launchi...

If you aren't into old games, this may be a pass week for you. On the Virtual Console for Wii U comes Natsume Championship Wrestling, and the always great Mega Man Zero. Also on the Wii you'll find 99Moves, Blok Drop X T...

The Wii U isn't looking good this week. All you're getting is Lucadian Chronicles, Angry Birds Star Wars, and Angry Birds Trilogy. Yep. Seriously. The 3DS however is rocking it as usual. The big drops include Phoenix Wright: ...

A new pinball game out of Nintendo sure would be delightful. The time is right (because the time is always right for well-made pinball spinoff games). I don't see that happening anytime soon, granted, but there's always Pok&e...

Nintendo is delivering with a heavy-hitting first party title this week -- Captain Toad. It will hit the Wii U eShop and retail tomorrow for $39.99. Also on the Wii U is Fire Emblem, Lode Runner, and a Sonic Boom de...

I let out an involuntary "hell yeah!" upon hearing that Fire Emblem for Game Boy Advance is coming to the Wii U Virtual Console tomorrow, December 4. In fact, I think my body even twisted in excitement for a few seconds there...

The Nintendo 3DS is the champion this week, as it's getting a few pretty awesome releases to pad out that gigantic library. On the Wii U though you can pick up Mighty Final Fight, Mario Pinball Land, Thomas Was Alone, GetClos...

This is easily one of the biggest weeks of 2014 for Nintendo. Both systems have some heavy hitters, but the crown jewel is no doubt Super Smash Bros. on the Wii U, which is out tomorrow. The console is also getting Watch...

The big name this week is definitely Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, but with late review copies I wouldn't make haste to pick it up. Also on the Wii U there's Xavier, A World of Keflings, Tengami, Mario Kart: Super Circuit, and L...

It's a rare day when a Nintendo Download week has me equally excited for the Wii U and 3DS, but here we are. The big-hitter on the Wii U is definitely Bayonetta 2, which, as a reminder, comes with the original Bayonetta ...

I love Pokémon Puzzle Challenge.  I am glad that it is coming to the 3DS Virtual Console. I think I will pay $5 for it despite still having a cartridge. I probably won't bother with the code for the Special Demo Version of Ruby and Sapphire it comes with, but that's fine. It is a lovely little game. I think I will go play it right now.
