Did Nintendo sell us a ROM of Super Mario Bros.?

The Virtual Console on the Wii and Wii U has been pretty crappy. While there are definitely a bunch of classic titles available, Nintendo's treatment of the service comes off as an afterthought. This is a company with one of the richest bac...   read

Fire Emblem Warriors is also headed to New 3DS

Nintendo didn't really show much of anything for Fire Emblem Warriors during its Switch event last week, but at least we didn't have to wait long to see more. Is this "extended" footage exactly what you imagined of a game from the team beh...   read

Review in Progress: Dragon Quest VIII (3DS)

Sometimes, you get things right on the first try.  That's the philosophy which has guided the Dragon Quest series for thirty years, and it's hard to argue. The franchise has consistently been a top seller in Japan, and Dragon Ques...   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

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

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
