A quick guide to the Fire Emblem series

Fire Emblem. One of the most puzzling Nintendo franchises for sure. Most people's first experience with the series was Super Smash Bros. Melee on the GameCube, which included Marth and Roy. Neither of their games released out...

This GBA SP Switch dock is crude, but functional

The Game Boy Advance SP is a masterpiece of a system. While the Game Gear had the backlight years before it, this was the first time I was able to play a Game Boy without attaching a gross worm light accessory to it, and man, did the G...

Someone translated the Full Metal Alchemist GBA game

Man, Full Metal Alchemist. It's required reading for incoming anime enthusiasts, and for good reason -- it ticks all the right boxes -- especially the newer series, Brotherhood, which is a direct manga adaptation. If you're pining for the o...

Happy 15th anniversary to the Game Boy Advance

I'm leaving on a jet plane at 6AM tomorrow morning for E3, an entire week dedicated to the hottest upcoming new video games and my own navigating how to play all these hot new games after just getting my thumb ripped out of its socket. It'l...

Such a tease! Mother 3 is headed to Wii U in Japan

There was at least one noticeable difference between today's Nintendo Direct in North America and Japan, and of course it involved Mother 3. The latter region is getting the treasured role-playing game on the Wii U Virtual Console next mont...

Lucky! Europe gets Advance Wars 2 on Wii U

One of my most-played Wii U games is, I kid you not, Advance Wars. That's not a judgment on the quality of the console's (lovely) exclusives, it's just that the game is really damn good. I'm dying for the sequel, my favorite in the series, ...

Obscure Video Games: Hachiemon

Hachiemon is not nearly as weird as it looks. Natsume and Namco unleashed this GBA game onto the people of Japan back in 2003, perhaps as their response to Kirby. The character, however, was created in 1995 as the mascot for the Kansai Tele...

Beards optional: Embedded difficulty decisions in Fire Emblem

[Destructoid likes to invite game developers to write editorials for us from time to time. Their opinions don't necessarily represent Destructoid as a whole, but they sure are interesting. Here is a fun one on how Fire Emblem handles diffic...

Rockman & Forte is coming to the Wii U in GBA form

Mega Man & Bass, known as Rockman & Forte in Japan, is my favorite Mega Man game. It originally debuted on the SNES, but was later converted to the Game Boy Advance -- it's the latter version that will be coming to the Wii U. The GB...

How long do you wait before replaying games?

When I was younger, I would spend months -- and in some cases years, on and off -- completing the same videogames repeatedly. Forget new game plus. I didn't need extra motivation. This was back when I could only afford to buy a handful of t...

Castlevania: Circle of the Moon hits Wii U in Japan real soon

Castlevania: Circle of the Moon is coming to the Wii U Virtual Console in Japan next week and one can only hope that the rest of the world will get it not long after. Playing Game Boy Advance games on Wii U has become one of my favorite thi...

I want one of these SNES and Super Famicom-inspired GBAs

Rose Colored Game is currently producing these fancy, backlit GBAs for connoisseurs who recognize the GBA's relative perfection. I own three myself and while a back light took me to the SP, which I also love, I sort of want to buy one of th...

The RetroN 5 is my childhood of gaming in one box

Hyperkin's RetroN 5 console will be released in the Americas for $140 beginning June 6, 2014. It seems to be sold out for the time being, so I hope you got your pre-order in. This thing is a beast, supporting NES, Famicom, SNES, Super Famic...

You got a Game Boy emulator in my Oculus Rift

Yo, dawg. We heard you liked Game Boy, so we let you play virtual Game Boy via Oculus Rift with a huge headset with roms and a complicated setup instead of just handing you a Game Boy and Tetris. I kid. This is actually kind of interesting...
