Demon's Crest, one of the most rare SNES games to date, is coming to the Virtual Console

One of my biggest regrets is not buying Demon's Crest as a kid. I rented it at least twice and beat it multiple times -- as soon as I was done with one playthrough, I started the next one. It's easily one of the best pla...

Always bet on Ganondorf

"Always bet on Ganondorf," you said. I agree. Does that look like a face you'd want to mess with? And those teeth! Nintendo has uploaded a few more "secret fighter" galleries for Super Smash Bros. which you can find over here...

You can now buy eShop games on Nintendo.com

As pleasant as it is to hear Nintendo music while shopping for games digitally, sometimes you just want to get in and get out -- no fanfare needed. Here's our alternative at last. It's now possible to buy certain 3DS and Wii ...

Good lord, Nintendo gave Link a motorcycle!

We've seen a couple images of Link in Mario Kart 8 before but nothing like this. Take special note of the front of the motorcycle. So cool! Hope the vehicle's stats are good. As a reminder, the DLC is coming in two waves. Lin...

Nintendo teases new game mode for Smash Bros. Wii U

Nintendo producer Masahiro Sakurai has dropped another neat tease for us for the Wii U version of Super Smash Bros. He's hinting at a new game mode, and all we know for now is that it involves Master Hand and Crazy Hand ...

Mega Man Zero is coming to the Japanese Virtual Console next week

Keiji Inafune was vital to the creation of the Mega Man series and its continued success, but he didn't actually create the character of Mega Man single-handedly (the original design was Akira Kitamur...

Watch me beat the third and final Mighty No. 9 beta level, out today photo
Watch me beat the third and final Mighty No. 9 beta level, out today
by Chris Carter

The Mighty No. 9 beta has updated with its third and "final" stage, the Power Plant. This morning I decided to give it a go, and here are the results of my second playthrough of it. As usual this is a zero death run, quick and simple through the level.

I would say that this is the easiest stage on offer, and although it has a few cool concepts, some of them are half measures. Comcept will definitely have to step it up if they want to make Mighty No. 9 as memorable as some other recent platformers, but so far it's not bad at all.

If you missed the first and second levels you can check out my other videos linked herein.

Donkey Kong Country trilogy returning to Virtual Console in the UK

Back in November 2012, Nintendo removed the Donkey Kong Country series from the Wii's Virtual Console for some reason that, to my knowledge, was never publicly addressed. But those games will resurface this month on Wii U alo...

Relive that time Kirby was a golf ball with Club Nintendo photo
Relive that time Kirby was a golf ball with Club Nintendo
by Jordan Devore

Coming off of Kirby Super Star and Art Style: PiCTOBiTS, guess I should have lowered my expectations for this month's Club Nintendo digital game rewards. Too late. Actually, it's not all bad:

  • Wrecking Crew (Wii U) - 200 Coins
  • Kirby's Dream Course (Wii U) - 200 Coins
  • Zoda's Revenge: StarTropics II (Wii) - 200 Coins
  • Maboshi's Arcade (Wii) - 250 Coins
  • Kersploosh! (3DS) - 150 Coins
  • Brain Age Express: Math (3DS) - 200 Coins
  • 3D Classics: Kid Icarus (3DS) - 200 Coins
  • Donkey Kong (3DS) - 150 Coins

Tempted to go for the oddity that is Kirby's Dream Course. It's an isometric golf game in which Kirby is the ball, so, yeah. Kersploosh!, a game about falling, is worth a look too.

Are you getting Nintendo mash-up fatigue?

[Art by Hakuramen] Back in the 1980's, rock band Aerosmith and rap group Run DMC did a cover of Aerosmith's Walk This Way. It was an older song, but the novelty, evocative quality, and skills present in the cover made it a mu...

Super Smash Bros. Wii U's trophy shop looks a lot cooler than the 3DS one

The fact that the trophy shop was bland on the 3DS version of Super Smash Bros. isn't really worth complaining about for me, but this new screenshot of the Wii U version is definitely a vast improvement.  In his pic...

Toadette CONFIRMED for Captain Toad!

Toadette is one of those characters Nintendo keeps locked away in its vault until the need arises to flesh out a roster for one of its sports, party or racing games. She's essentially the Waluigi of the Toad species, you kno...
