Splatoon 2 is getting another Nintendo Direct this week

With Splatoon 2 being only a few weeks away, Nintendo has to build hype somehow. What better way than to host one of their patented Directs? Despite showing up in a stream dedicated to ARMS, Splatoon 2 has not yet received its own showcase....

Metroid Prime 4 gets teased for Switch

Next to nothing was even shown about the game, but Metroid Prime 4 will be coming to Nintendo Switch at some point in time. Whether or not Retro Studios is working on it remains to be seen, but at least Nintendo hasn't forgotten about Samus...

Nintendo announces Pokken Tournament DX for Switch

I mean, I put out a wide array of predictions in this post, but given that Nintendo (along with Bandai Namco in this case) is basically pulling out all the stops to erase any Wii U exclusive from existence, this one made perfect sense....

Nintendo won't hold a conference at E3 this year, either

Since 2013 Nintendo has chosen to skip the financial cost of hosting a press conference at the yearly Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles. Instead they have broadcast their own pre-recorded Nintendo Direct while the expo is occurri...

Watch the Splatoon 2 and Arms Nintendo Direct right here

I miss morning Nintendo Directs. I mean, I guess evening broadcasts make sense for the west coast, but even on the east coast a lot of people are still at work at 6PM ET, and some in Europe are going to bed. Scratch that, a lot of west coas...

There's a new Nintendo Direct this week for Monster Hunter

Gunman Clive reaches guest star status

As we're all hopefully accustomed to by now, when Nintendo airs a new Direct, the Japanese version tends to have games not present in its western siblings. Today was no different. We've already written about Miitopia and the scant amou...

Missed September's Nintendo Direct? Catch up here

No, there were no surprise NX details. But there was a lot of good stuff announced! A couple of Wii U to 3DS ports, some new (and surprising) games like Pikmin, and of course goofy skits in between! Here's the Direct, alongside a list of ev...

A new Pikmin title is coming to the 3DS

A new Pikmin title was announced during today's Nintendo Direct, but it's not quite the same as its predecessors. Eschewing the traditional view, the 3DS adventure is a sidescrolling game, but retains the core ideas. The video shows Ol...
