The Mario Brothers are slinging energy drinks under the table

The review scores of Mario Sports Superstars drove the Mushroom Kingdom to drinking, and the drink of choice is a new brew of DEKAVITA C, which roughly translates to "Big Vitamin C".  It's Suntory Corporation's watery, less acrid versi...   read

Maybe don't watch this spoilery Zelda: Breath of the Wild video

There's a lot going on this Japanese television ad for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Too much, probably! You're not going to want to see it if you've held out this long and remained relatively spoiler-free. Stay strong, and also...   read

The North American Switch commercials are kind of bland

Last week, Nintendo released some advertisements for the Switch in its home country. Earlier today, some English language commercials for the Switch were released, and they'll no doubt be unavoidable if you have a kid with any sort of scree...   read

Nintendo: Play Switch while you poop

Now that's just silly. But yes, it's real. Nintendo's latest German trailer for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe shows off various locations you can take your Switch to play on the go. Take it to class and hope you don't get caught (hey at least t...   read

Yo-Kai Watch 3: Sukiyaki claymation ads are kawaii as hell

How could you possibly make Jibanyan cosplaying Indiana Jones even more cute? Make it into a clay animation (or claymation) of course. These short but sweet TV spots kind of make me wish the whole game was a 3D clay-animated adventure....   read

Undertale 'little buddies' toy commercial has a lot of heart

Indie sensation Undertale is getting some new figures courtesy of Fangamer, and to promote the launch, it has released a trailer. It reminds me of an '80s commercial with little boys playing a little too roughly with their toys. You ca...   read

Japanese teens, um, rap about Miitomo

This is...something. Non-English rap has always rung weird to me. It's like that hit Italian song that's meant to sound like hit American music, but the singer is just stringing together nonsense sounds. There's something uncanny about it....   read

Remember when Uncharted 3 tried to sell you Subway?

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End serves as a weird hanger-on to the Uncharted trilogy housed on the PS3. We could've left it at that, even "that" was the disappointing Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception -- especially if Uncharted 4 is meant to serve ...   read

Nintendo's first Miitomo commercial is as insane as you'd expect

The worst part of the '90s are alive in this Splatoon commercial
