Super Mario Maker for 3DS tops Sun & Moon in weekly sales

Without any new releases or major events, the sales charts in Japan haven't moved much the past two weeks. The one interesting note is that Pokémon Sun & Moon have finally been dethroned in weekly sales by a game that isn't ...   read

Again?! We all failed the second Pokemon Sun & Moon Global Mission

Failure is just as sour the second time around, and that's just what we did, folks -- fail. The first Pokemon Sun and Moon global event tasked players with catching a certain number of 'mons -- 100 million, in fact -- and we only manag...   read

Room-flipping puzzler Shift returns on 3DS this week

Whoa, this one brings me back. Remember Shift? The monochrome puzzle title started out as a web game eight years ago before proving popular enough to warrant a full series and ports to other platforms. Now it's back and heading to 3DS with...   read

Poochy & Yoshi shorts are cute as hell, easy to take out of context

There's something to be said about emotive art. Whether it's gibberish talk like Banjo Kazooie or pantomiming, I love that a common development issue like a lack of a budget can lead to some amazing characters that say so much without ...   read

My Nintendo gets new rewards for the New Year, and they're...still meh

Nintendo still has plenty of chances to spice up My Nintendo at some point, possibly when the Switch arrives in March. I mean, all they have to do is add in some big reward (even if it's 2,000 Platinum Points) every so often to keep people ...   read

It's not too late to nab the Mythical Pokemon Arceus

Arceus is one of those Pokémon I'd rather not think too hard about, if I'm being frank. Not because of its design, or its abilities, or whatever other criteria we might use to judge these creatures against each other. Nah. It's the l...   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

Let's hope the second Pokemon Sun and Moon mission goes smoother

The debut Global Mission in Pokémon Sun and Moon was a disaster. This limited-time challenge ran from November 29 to December 12 and asked players to collectively catch 100 million Pokémon. That's obviously a lot, but still ma...   read

Insanely cute Yoshi clip runs through the little guy's history

Pokemon Sun and Moon is getting a second guide

This was also sort of known roughly around launch, but given that the second Pokemon Sun and Moon guide was just dated, it's worth talking about. Just in time for the National Pokedex, this second edition will go through the entire Alo...   read

Pokemon Sun and Moon are still going strong, but are dethroned for now
