Metroidvania-like Dandara is right at home on the Switch

The impetus behind Dandara was to create a mobile metroidvania that didn't use a virtual keyboard. Thus, a character that doesn't run around, but instead aims jumps, ping-ponging between platforms. And as it turns out, that method of getti...   read

Taro Yoko's next project is a mobile game titled SINoALICE

Nintendo is changing the way experience works in Fire Emblem Heroes

With Super Mario Run Nintendo has adopted a "set it and forget it" strategy, where they aren't altering the game that much outside of some sparing events and tweaks. But Fire Emblem Heroes is following the exact opposite beat, and...   read

Fire Emblem Heroes will be getting two additional stories as DLC per month

The free-to-play nonsense embedded in Fire Emblem Heroes doesn't seem so bad. Sure, you can't just power through the story mode as you'll run out of "orbs," but the game does a pretty decent job of making sure you'll have a satisfying stint...   read

Nintendo is gearing up for more mobile games, plans 2-3 per year

Super Mario Run may not the most successful game around, but it has still drawn in a decent chunk of paying customers. The best thing about the title is that it isn't loaded with microtransactions, but the company seems to be changing its f...   read

Review: Dandy Dungeon: Legend of Brave Yamada

Developer Yoshiro Kimura has a brain that, I believe, runs perpendicular to everyone else in the games industry. When creating his own games, you get oddities not only in design but in character and world building. Sometimes his genius...   read

Much like Darren, I am wholly on board with a game that takes the Where's Waldo? concept and just runs with it. That's the appeal of Hidden Folks and its painstakingly hand-drawn illustrations that'll have you poking and prodding and hunti...   read
