Mewtwo's new incarnation in Super Smash Bros. might be on the juice, but he severely lacks one major feature -- custom moves. For whatever reason they are not included at the launch of the character, and Nintendo has be...



Street Fighter's Ryu is currently rumored to be coming to Nintendo's newest entry into the Super Smash Bros. series, thanks to some hidden files in the most recent update to the game. It makes a lot of sense; Capcom...



It doesn’t seem too long ago that Nintendo were struggling. With the slow sales of the Wii U that hit profits back in 2013 and the dwinding 3DS user base in 2014, It looked like the little (pfffft) company that could un...



As many of you will be aware, Super Smash Bros. received a patch yesterday on both Wii U and 3DS adding Mewtwo to the game's already large roster and applying a number of smaller balance changes to the game. Far tech savvier ...



A new era of Smash Bros. has arrived. Speculation about who's going to be next icon to join the all-star roster can become a daily part of our lives again. Starting today with the original uber-Pokémon Mewtwo, the age ...



I wrote a thing about The Last of Us last week, and despite the use of measured language, there were accusations of extreme opinions on either side. Come on, people. That is not very zen. Find your nirvana. In this series, w...



Oh boy, it's like the Syphon Filter taser all over again. If you want to give your Kirby a new look, try getting sucked off by another Kirby while you have your hammer readied and release your grip right when you start getti...



Nintendo took a big spot in last week's news, with the highs of the Nintendo Direct and the lows of the Wave 4 amiibo rollout. Does that give the company perfect balance, like a haiku? I'm not sure. In this series, we take a...



This past week there has been a lot of excitement around Nintendo accepting votes for which videogame character should be the next addition to Smash Bros. on Wii U and 3DS. While most of the talk has been around Nintendo...



Head of Xbox Phil Spencer likes to talk about games. However, that doesn't mean that he restricts himself to only talking about titles that his company's working on. No, he'll discuss anything, even Nintendo properties. When ...



Nintendo's April Fools Nintendo Direct was no joke. While there wasn't a whole lot there that would interest people who aren't existing fans of the publisher, there was something for just about everyone who already enjoys Nin...

Nintendo has announced that our lord and savior and one true amiibo, Marth, will be back in stores in late April. A little late for him and his friend Ike to join the fight in Code Name: S.T.E.A.M., which will have already been released in March. Finally, our prayers to Reggie have worked. Praise to Iwata. May our enemies' amiibo burn in hell.  Nintendo [Twitter]



A Ness amiibo has been spotted for sale on a Chinese auction site and appears to be in European packaging. Currently it sits at about $55, though I don't imagine that price will stay there for long. Comparing the images in the gallery to the official Ness amiibo pictures, I'd say it looks to be the real deal. What do you think, real or fake? Ness amiibo leaked in China [My amiibo News]



That Super Smash Bros. soundtrack promotion from Club Nintendo is pretty sweet, and should be shipping out this week for most of you out there. Sadly, Nintendo has confirmed that Australians will have to wait a bit longe...



In case you were living under a rock when Super Smash Bros. had its dual 3DS and Wii U launch, Club Nintendo had a really cool promotion where if you registered both games, you'd get a nifty physical soundtrack for free. The ...



In the first official amiibo price drop, Nintendo has lowered the MSRP of the Super Smash Bros. line Peach, Yoshi, and Donkey Kong to $9.99. The change can be seen on the official Nintendo amiibo website. All other figures in...



This past weekend I was up late and feeling loopy, and some haikus about a Flash game nobody cares about fell out of that state. Struck with inspiration, I thought, "Why can't all news be digested 17 syllables at a time?" Th...



[Update: Master0fHyrule made an updated video featuring several moves that were left out of the original, including a really cool Zelda attack.] YouTuber Master0fHyrule compiled a video of almost every attack that the Villag...



[Update: It's fake, as shown in the video above. While it's nice to have a detailed explanation on how this fake was made, what I really want is a detailed explanation on why it was made, preferably with sideline psycho...



As we all know, the New 3DS will have the ability to work with amiibo out of the box -- as long as the game allows it. Thankfully, Super Smash Bros. 3DS will be getting an amiibo-centric software update tomorrow, ensuring tha...



Chris asked me to fill in for him this morning, if only for a single post, so I figured I'd do exactly that not with amiibo coverage, but with this Super Smash Bros. glitch in which tomatoes have run amok. Somehow, something...



Nintendo's tireless Masahiro Sakurai isn't so tireless after all and is, instead, a human being who needs better working conditions. The Super Smash Bros. creator has already said that he probably won't make another Smas...



If you're itching to play more levels in Super Smash Bros. Wii U 8-player mode, you're in luck, as 15 whopping existing stages have been added to the mix as a result of the 1.0.2 update. Now you'll be able to enjoy arenas lik...



  Some people make it a hobby to find out everything they can about a game, inside and out, and these data miners have been poring over the code of Super Smash Bros. since release. Over the last couple of months, bits an...



The New Nintendo 3DS XL is the current hot commodity for Nintendo fans, with special edition units selling out. For those who are not so keen on ordering one before playing, an opportunity to get some hands-on time is coming ...



If you are anything like me, you put off registering products on Club Nintendo until months (or years) later, when they aren't worth as much. If you bought both the 3DS and the Wii U versions of Super Smash Bros. and you have...



Nintendo's meatiest executive is now immortalized in Smash Bros. His body is ready...to fight on. StreetPass NYC [Twitter]



In recent news, Nintendo sold the Wii U GameCube adapter on its site, making good on the promise that it would come back into stock -- sorta. It sold out in roughly 30 minutes, so I hope you were staring at the internet at th...



Last month, my family and I were at our local mall doing some holiday shopping. As we were walking through the mall, we noticed a large gathering of people who were playing video games. Upon closer inspection, it turns out th...

Pac-Land is considered a hallmark title for being one of the first games to use and help popularize parallax scrolling. Despite its contribution to modern gaming, Super Smash Bros.' homage to it isn't all that well-rece...



Mema Haxx is at it again! After showing off the creation of the unannounced Duck Hunt amiibo in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, there were some doubts as to the authenticity of the video. Now he's released another demo, th...



It makes perfect sense that Nintendo would have every amiibo file already on the Super Smash Bros. Wii U disc, but this video apparently confirms that fact. Taken by YouTube user Mema Haxx, it shows the character (known...



Now that Super Smash Bros. has been out and about for quite a while on the 3DS and Wii U, it's time to start looking at the big picture. Sakurai recently spoke to Japanese magazine Nintendo Dream, and opened up abou...



At this weekend's Shockwave 11 Super Smash Bros. for Wii U tournament, player Lord Cat God found out the hard way that the Villager's tree isn't necessarily loyal to whoever created it. The result was a room full of suddenly boisterous people, and one of the more memorable and unexpected victories for opponent, Awestin.



The Japanese market certainly loves its handheld devices, but for at least one week, a console game is king. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U was the top selling title in Japan this week, moving 227,527 units in the first few...



Japan is getting an amazing Figma figure next year -- Lucina from Fire Emblem: Awakening. It's up for pre-order now from retailers like AmiAmi, and it'll drop in April 2015. I think I'm going to have the mask on permanently -- it looks too cool. Of course, this figure makes me lament the fact that Lucina doesn't have a mask-variant costume in Smash Bros.



Masahiro Sakurai, who brought us endless chipper Miiverse updates and, indeed, Super Smash Bros. itself, finally seems burnt out. According to CVG, Sakurai told Game Informer in an interview, "I can't positively declare ...



Super Smash Bros. might be a major hit for Nintendo, but a small number of people are having some issues with a few specific error codes on the Wii U. 160-0103 and 160-1710 may occur when players are engaging in the "For...



My initial amiibo assessment was after roughly one week of testing. Within one day I trained a few toys to the max level of 50, fed them a few items, and was pretty underwhelmed. Two weeks later and I'm still a bit underwhelm...



Newcomers to Smash Bros. might find the Wii U version to be a bit daunting. There are almost fifty characters, most considerably different from one another. Even seasoned Smash players have wildly differing opinions whe...



I've been spending a lot of time with Rosalina in Smash Bros. I've been interested in her before the game was released as I like the character quite a bit, and Luma sweetened the deal. After an extended amount of play, I...



Today is a good day, European Nintendo fans. Or maybe a not so great one for your wallet. Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, and the first dozen amiibo figures all arrive in Europe star...



Nintendo sent a boastful little email our way this morning, touting Super Smash Bros. as the fastest-selling Wii U game ever. At least so far as the United States is concerned, anyway. Americans purchased more than 490,000 un...



Jonathan introduced this video of a kitten occasionally pawing at Super Smash Bros. by saying, "It's the least newsworthy news ever newsed, but it will make people happy to watch." Indeed, I had just come off a last-round de...
