Sakurai talks Chrom, why he isn't playable in Smash Bros.

Yesterday we learned that Lucina will be a clone of Marth in the new Smash Bros., which is fine by me, but Chrom will not be making the final cut. Director Sakurai explains that he was initially considering adding Chrom,...

First look at Tecmo's new Fatal Frame for Wii U
by Kyle MacGregor

Koei Tecmo unveiled the next entry in the Fatal Frame series, Zero: Nuregarasu no Miko, today during a NicoNico Live event.

The Wii U horror title, which Siliconera translates as Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden, will be summoned to Japan starting September 27, 2014.

Zero: Nuregarasu no Miko is set against the backdrop of a cursed lakeside manor in the mountains, where themes of water and hydrophobia will feature prominently.

The Wii U GamePad also figures to be a core part of the experience. Koei Tecmo asserts the title will make use of the controller's unique qualities to mimic the trademark Camera Obscura, allowing players to spot things that might otherwise go unseen by the naked eye.

Every Club Nintendo Platinum reward is digital this year

Well, this is disappointing. Although Nintendo used to release cool products like hats and statues for its Club Nintendo Platinum members, this year it's all digital. Yep, both the Platinum and Gold ranks are digital-only, wi...

Today, Nintendo was set to tease a "New Fighter Intro Video" at 7AM PST, and tease they did. The new fighter was revealed to be none other than Lucina from Fire Emblem: Awakening. But wait, there's more! Robin from Fire Emblem is also in, and he has a female gender swapped costume! Chrom was revealed as well, but it isn't clear if he is a playable character or just a skin/assist trophy/Final Smash, but all signs point to the latter.

Finally, Captain Falcon was revealed as a returning fighter. That's three confirmed characters with two new additions and one returning character (we'll see what Chrom is soon enough). Sakurai noted last week that they were "nearing the bottom of the stash" in terms of new announcements, so I wouldn't expect a whole lot more.

Two pros are 'edgy' about slight landing lag in Smash Bros. 4

Yesterday I wrote an article about why I'd like to have the option to turn on tripping in Smash Bros for the Wii U and 3DS. It upset a lot of people. Sorry, guys. One part that some people found particularly insulting was ins...

The Letter is an unbelievable new Wii U eShop game

WiiWare was a more interesting place than many will ever know. Though Nintendo's stringent doctrines made it unfairly tough for some to make a profit on the platform, they also made it very cheap to put together a game and r...
