Nintendo Download: Splatoon 2 Global Testfire

It's a really weird Nintendo Download this week, as there's a ton of different platforms to juggle. For one there's Android, as Super Mario Run finally lost its iOS exclusivity. In other portable news, Japanese Rail Sim 3D and Super De...   read

Review: World of Goo (Switch)

Wait long enough, and everything old can start to feel new again. That's the happy accident of a situation I found myself in with World of Goo, the near-universally well-liked puzzle game about plucking and plopping down living bits of gooe...   read

Nintendo Download: The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+

It's another exciting week for the Switch, as a ton of indies are coming to it. They might be ports, and some of them might be hella old, but hey, several of them are real good ones. That list includes The Binding of Issac Afterbirth+,...   read

Review: Fast RMX

Look, this game is super fast racing and includes a big blue vehicle named "Fulcon Capital." You can stop asking for these guys to make the next F-Zero game. This is it.   read

Nintendo Download: Blaster Master Zero

The time has come to shift these updates in a different direction. On any given week you might see a lack of Wii U or 3DS releases now that the Switch has come into play. Nintendo even expects it to outsell the Wii U in just one year! Sad d...   read

Happy Switch Day! Before you run off melting your weekend away playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Snipperclips, and Fast RMX, here is a warning: don't make any progress on a friend's Switch. Nintendo's Switch support page...   read

Nintendo Download: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

The day has finally come! I don't have to write these, biding time for the Switch's launch, as Nintendo's newest system is arriving tonight at midnight. On the US Switch eShop you'll find Zelda: Breath of the Wild (also on Wii U), alon...   read

Review: Tank Troopers

I play my Nintendo 3DS more than any other system I own. I love the little thing, and have loved it ever since I picked up an OG model six years ago. But lately, I’ve been wondering about its future. Nintendo says it will continue to ...   read

Nintendo Download: Harvest Moon 64

As we gear up for the Switch in just under two weeks, the Wii U eShop is gearing down. In addition to Harvest Moon 64, it's also hosting forma.8, Ghost Blade HD, Maze Break, and Vaccine. The 3DS is super low key this week with Shovel K...   read

eShop will be ready at Switch launch with 'Nindies' including timed exclusive Shovel Knight DLC

As if ashamed by all the things it won't have at launch, Nintendo is boasting that it will in fact have the eShop up and running at launch (as it should), though it will require a system update that will be available at launch. Those who ha...   read

Nintendo Download: Ogre Battle 64

It's another what's old is new again week, with Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordly Caliber as the headliner on the Wii U Virtual Console. Also on Wii U is Back to Bed, Wall Ball, and Color Cubes. I still recall many conversations in my y...   read

Nintendo Download: Azure Striker Gunvolt: The Anime

I'm glad that Azure Striker Gunvolt has some sort of audience. An audience big enough, at least, to warrant to full entries, a spinoff, and an anime. It came out of nowhere with none of the hype of Mighty No. 9 and fully surpassed it critic...   read

TumbleSeed rolls to Nintendo Switch this spring

Add another one to the list: the arcade-inspired roguelike TumbleSeed is coming to Switch this spring. I've talked about the game a few times now, and I don't mind continuing to bring it up. It's a cool one. You have to help this little se...   read

Nintendo Download: Fire Emblem Heroes

It feels weird listing mobile games in these Nintendo Download posts, but that's something I'm going to have to do two to three times a year, it seems. Out today is Fire Emblem Heroes on Android and iOS. Although the initial presentati...   read

Slithering 3D platformer Snake Pass is hitting Nintendo Switch

I have the distinct feeling we're going to be reading a lot of "so-and-so confirmed for Switch" stories these next few weeks leading up to the system's launch. Why, look at that! There's one right here. Sumo Digital is bringing its puzzle-p...   read

Nintendo Download: Pokemon Bank for Sun and Moon

Nintendo is getting creative with its Nintendo Download announcements, filling out entries with events and apps. One such event is the "Choose your Legends" promotion, which lets fans vote on who they want to appear in the upcoming Fire Emb...   read

Nintendo Download: Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King

We have liftoff! The eShop is a little more exciting this week with Dragon Quest VIII for 3DS, which is also joined by Punch Club, Color Cubes, and a Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World demo. Not bad given the past month's lull peri...   read

These are the first Neo Geo games coming to Nintendo Switch

Neo Geo games on Nintendo Switch seemed like something that would happen sooner than later, but it's nice to hear confirmation all the same. So far, Hamster Corp. has announced five titles for worldwide digital release on the system: The Ki...   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

Nintendo Download: F-Zero X

I don't have any clever words of wisdom for this week -- there's literally just one game apiece for the Wii U and 3DS. F-Zero X for the former, and Shift DX for the latter. That's it! It's a shame Nintendo hasn't done anything wit...   read

Nintendo leads into the Switch event with a huge eShop sale

Nintendo has a stranglehold on gaming news right now. We're one day away from its highly-anticipated Switch presentation and speculation is abound. Third-party accessories are leaking, retailers are prematurely confirming future games ...   read

Nintendo Download: Pokemon Snap

We're just a week away from the second Switch reveal, but for now, here's what's happening on Nintendo's legacy console and peppy portable. On Wii U, Pokemon Snap hits the Virtual Console, in addition to Spheroids, Cup Critters, and Zo...   read

Nintendo Download: Mario Kart 64

It's the holidays, so it's expected to be a light eShop drop, but this is really light. I wonder if anyone is going to try to capitalize on the zero competition going into the Switch's release? Either way, we have Mario Kart 64 on the ...   read

Nintendo Download: Shantae: Half-Genie Hero

It's a really brief Christmas drop for the eShop -- I guess most developers figure people already spent all their holiday cash on gifts. But then again, post-Christmas eShop gift cards are a thing! Either way, on Wii U we have Shantae:...   read

Nintendo Download: Super Mario Run

Weird! Today I get to talk about the release of a Nintendo mobile game -- it's been months since Miitomo dropped, but Super Mario Run is set to debut today worldwide on iOS. It's free-to-play (and $10 to buy), and will feature a non-endless...   read
