Report: Rosalina is coming to Target on January 30

Nintendo is still quiet on the exact release dates of many upcoming amiibo. It's really annoying. But thanks to an intrepid Target employee, we may have our first lead on Rosalina. As we know, she is exclusive to Target, and ...

Sonic Boom Wii U gets a massive 1GB mystery patch

Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric was a messy game, and it's taken far too long to patch it. After weeks of waiting though European fans have finally gotten a fix of sorts (it's not out yet in the US), but the problem is Sega hasn't ...

Those Mario Party 10 amiibo are up on Amazon

It was announced last week that Mario Party 10 would be getting its own amiibo line. The good news is that every existing character in said sub-series (Peach, Yoshi, Bowser, Luigi, and Mario) would be interchangeable wit...

Game-within-a-game hinted at for Splatoon

Splatoon is shaping up to be Nintendo's most bold and explosive new intellectual properties in recent memory. Nintendo is often accused of never publishing new I.P., though these accusations are often coming from folks who on...

According to a media release from Nintendo, the Wii U sold almost 30 percent more hardware and over 75 percent more games in 2014 than the previous year, likely fueled by the one-two punch of Mario Kart 8 (1.7 million physica...

Campy old Zelda CD-i games imagined as Hyrule Warriors DLC

Link: The Faces of Evil and Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon are two ill-fated Philips CD-i games that would be best left forgotten if they weren't such trainwrecks. Their legacy of unintentional hilarity endures through YouTube, g...

Nintendo Download: 3D After Burner II

On the Wii U, we have Street Fighter 2010: The Final Fight on the Virtual Console. Nintendo calls this an "NES classic," but I beg to differ. Also on the Wii U eShop, there's Electroic Super Joy: Groove City, Family Tennis SP...

Target to close all 133 stores in Canada, where the Rosalina amiibo is exclusive

Things haven't been looking good for Nintendo and its retailer-exclusive amiibo initiative. Toys"R"Us has bungled pre-orders so many times it's hard to tell if anyone will actually get their  Lucario amiibo at this point...

Ready for Hyrule Warriors' Majora's Mask DLC? If not, grind these levels photo
Ready for Hyrule Warriors' Majora's Mask DLC? If not, grind these levels
by Jordan Devore

I'm continually amazed and frightened by how much mileage I've gotten out of Hyrule Warriors. This game is massive without DLC, and with it, god help us all -- it just keeps going.

After regularly playing since launch in late September, I've managed to clear the first Adventure Mode map, most of the Master Quest map, and around half of the Twilight Princess map. But just when I feel like my progress is coming together, more content drops. Not that I'm complaining.

There's still the Majora's Mask DLC ($7.99 standalone, or bundled with the other DLC packs for $19.99) on February 5. We got our first real look at that content -- Young Link, Tingle, three new costumes, and an Adventure map -- during today's Nintendo Direct. It's gonna be good.

I'm ready to start rocking Tingle, but if your current favorite characters aren't as leveled-up as you'd like them to be, the Twilight Princess map can help. In particular, the "Divisive Plan" missions (locations here) are ideal for grinding experience points. You'll face off against a single warrior, like Darunia or Fi, who will split apart into multiple clones as you deal damage. More clones equals more XP. Just be sure to take advantage of their elemental weakness (e.g., Water beats Fire)!

Nintendo made a clay Wii U GamePad for this delightful Kirby trailer

This Kirby and the Rainbow Curse trailer is like an abbreviated version of the Japanese trailer we saw last month. It once again touches on the game's claymazing intro, four-person co-op, and amiibo support for Kirby, Meta Knight, and King Dedede, but it's just so gosh-darned cute. This is out exclusively for Wii U on February 20, 2015. Who's in?

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker will get amiibo support on March 20

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker will be getting its long-awaited amiibo support on March 20. The game will use the new Toad amiibo, which is set to arrive as part of the Mario-specific line. This must be why Nintendo has been quiet about amiibo support for the game -- it was waiting to announce the all-new Mario figures. It makes sense, since Toad isn't a Super Smash Bros. fighter.
