Nintendo is hosting an eShop sale for Switch, 3DS, and Wii U

If you're anything like me, you might be scoffing at the idea of loading up on even more Nintendo Switch games. I've put all of five minutes into Bayonetta. I'm midway through Celeste. I could keep scrolling right on my Switch home screen a...


Nintendo Download: Detective Pikachu

It's a  monumental day for the 3DS, as it's getting a pretty big exclusive in Detective Pikachu -- following a week that had the release of literally zero 3DS games, eShop or otherwise. The 3DS is also getting The Alliance Alive&n...


Review: Detective Pikachu

When I first saw the concept for Detective Pikachu, I was in. Although the idea of a talking Pikachu who solves crimes with a young boy named Tim raised some eyebrows I dug the Sherlock look on the ol' rat, and since many Pokemon have talke...


Good God the Detective Pikachu amiibo is huge

When I read that the Detective Pikachu amiibo that accompanied the game was huge, I sort of brushed it off. But after obtaining a figure from Nintendo today, I was in awe at the size of this plastic rat. Adorned with a great map aesthetic b...

What went down at today's Nintendo Direct?

Sushi Striker is now heading to Switch, will launch in June

Last year at E3, Nintendo unveiled Sushi Striker: Way of the Sushido for 3DS and made me pine for a Switch port. While I doubt I caused Nintendo to consider a port, the game is now heading to Switch alongside the 3DS launch on June 8. I'm p...

The Switch, for what feels like the millionth week, completely dominates today's Nintendo Download list as developers slowly move from the 3DS to the Switch. Alongside of the marquee Danmaku Unlimited 3, the Switch is also getting The Trail...


Nintendo Download: Fear Effect Sedna

If you had told me years ago that the "controversial" Fear Effect series would one day be resurrected and make its way onto a Nintendo platform, you would have sounded crazy. But here we are, as Fear Effect Sedna is arriving on Ma...


Detective Pikachu looks like a wild ride

I haven't been following the development of Detective Pikachu too closely, and for good reason; I want to be utterly surprised when I play it for the first time. That's not to say that I won't catch the occasional clip, and as we enter...


The next Pokemon giveaway will arrive in a newsletter

If you're one to keep up with legendary Pokémon giveaways, this is going to be a heck of a year. There's something new every month up through November. Next month, we're getting Regigigas and Heatran. It's still February, so why bri...


Nintendo Download: Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus

Nintendo is really surprising me as we enter an era where games aren't taking that long to be ported or straight-up designed for the Switch. While a lot of its early offerings were ports of one, two, or three-year old games we're now g...
