Super Mario Run's first event is now live

If you boot up Super Mario Run, you'll be greeted by the first bonus coin event "Load of Coins," which grants you 1.5 times the amount of currency for winning a Toad Rally match. The promotion will run until January 27. For those of you who...   read

Some Switch games won't force motion controls, including Arms

One of the things I loved about the Wii U is how much Nintendo backpedaled on motion. Sure some games had it as an option to aim with the GamePad's gyroscope, but compare say, Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze's smooth button-based rolling as op...   read

The Nintendo Switch doesn't have a pack-in game so it could reach the $299 pricepoint

So, 1-2 Switch. You know, that milking mini-game that looks like it should be a pack-in? Well, it's $50. And when you plunk down $300 on your new Switch console, you won't get anything else with it. Speaking to GameSpot, Nintendo of America...   read

The Nintendo Switch will support external storage for up to 2TB, when the pricey cards actually exist

Speaking to Game Informer, Nintendo finally let people know what the maximum amount of storage will be for the Nintendo Switch, which ships with 32GB -- and...drum roll...it's 2TB! That's quite a bit of space for non-proprietary micro SDXC ...   read

Reggie: Nintendo Switch won't have shortages, NES Classic getting 'continued' stock in the US

Nintendo has had a "shortage" problem for years in the US. The company did it with the Wii. It did with with every single special edition they've ever made, from systems to games (remember Fire Emblem Fates, and how that single cartridge so...   read

Nintendo Switch is skipping Miiverse and StreetPass

Much to some fans' dismay, Miiverse and StreetPass, Nintendo's rather novel communication systems for Wii U and 3DS, weren't mentioned last night during the extensive Switch presentation. If that absence left you anxious about the fate of t...   read

The sad, manic face of Wii Music is performing at the Trump inauguration

By E3 2008, the Wii had just passed the Xbox 360 in US sales, despite having come out a year later. With the PS3 flagging, it was Nintendo's race to win. And then we met Ravi. Riding high, Nintendo came into E3 2008 with absolutely nothing...   read

Snipperclips already looks like an early Nintendo Switch gem

And with that, I now know what my first three Nintendo Switch games will be: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (no kidding, right?), Super Bomberman R (I'm starving for even a halfway decent Bomberman), and Snipperclips - Cut it out, ...   read

Is Donkey Kong king of New York in the new Mario?

In a smoke-filled theatre on Broadway 84 years ago we were introduced to "Kong, the Eighth Wonder of the World." And we all know what happened after that: Jack Black's hubris led to a damn dirty ape scaling our towers with our women. Sure w...   read

Suda is writing and directing 'for the first time in 10 years'

Suda51 talked vaguely about a new Travis Touchdown game -- the lead character from the Wii's No More Heroes -- at Nintendo's Switch conference. The best news, though, for those of us who haven't been as thrilled with recent Grasshopper game...   read

Hold your blocks: Minecraft is also coming to the Switch

Minecraft just hit the Wii U fairly recently (in the grand scheme of Minecraft's lengthy lifespan, that is), but like most things that went to die on the Wii U, it's also coming to the Switch so you can buy it again like it didn't just...   read

Do you prefer the new Zelda's American or European box art?

There are two competing box arts for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. We've got the North American version, which is the same one Japan will use, surprisingly:   read

Zelda: Breath of the Wild is 13gb on Wii U, 13.4gb on Nintendo Switch

Some more Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild minutia (Minish-uh?) for you: the game is 13gb on Wii U and 13.4 on Nintendo Switch. They're both out March 3 and I doubt the .4gb will influence which one you buy. It is worth remembering, thou...   read

Nintendo confirms that Zelda: Breath of the Wild hits Wii U at the same time as Switch

Yesterday was all about the Nintendo Switch. So much so, that the publisher neglected to even really mention the Wii U, relegating it to the status of that distant relative that you aren't even aware of until someone mentions it. But they c...   read

All of the Nintendo Switch March launch games in one place

Are you ready to pick up a brand new Nintendo Switch at launch! Well you better prepare for all of those launch games -- wait. If you actually look at the fine print, a ton of that presentation isn't actually coming out until later in the y...   read

It's not quite F-Zero, but Fast RMX will do for now

I was tempted to make the title "Fast RMX is the next best thing," but it would actually be the next next best thing, after a Wipeout game (shout-out to Team Harimau!). Successor to highly rated Fast Racing Neo, Fast RMX by G...   read

Maybe the My Nintendo Store will be better than the current digital discount junkyard

My Nintendo has failed to impress day in and day out, and "updates" or news usually involve a new bad discount of some kind. I think they were banking too heavily on people getting swept up in Miitomo and Super Mario Run, in the sense ...   read

No wait really, the Nintendo Switch parental controls video is hilarious

I was late to the Switch party, but I found the best video of the lot! Nintendo's video guide to parental settings on the Switch is hilarious for a multitude of reasons and also pretty cute. In it Bowser imposes restrictions on poor ole Bo...   read

Here's what the Nintendo Switch in-store GameStop pre-order situation is like in the US

The price of the Nintendo Switch, and all its innards, is too damn high

Amidst all of the hype of the Nintendo Switch presentation, let's break one thing down -- this thing is going to be one of the priciest Nintendo consoles yet if you actually look at what everything costs. Now, $300 for the console itse...   read

Gamestop is taking pre-orders for Nintendo Switch

Along with Amazon, Gamestop is quick on the Nintendo Switch draw. You can pre-order at their website here, or in-store by putting down $50 that will go towards the cost of the system. Here's hoping they don't undersell like they did with th...   read

So that's what the Nintendo Switch UI looks like

Given the form factor of the Nintendo Switch, I figured Nintendo would more than likely create a user interface similar to the one it has for the Wii U GamePad, only more refined. We didn't get a good look at the Switch UI during the compan...   read
