Nintendo Download: Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap

The Switch keeps the hits coming week by week, even if they're multi-platform releases at this point. It's a fairly light offering with Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap and Fatal Fury, but the pace has been better than the Wii U and 3DS e...

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...

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+,...

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...

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...

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...

Nintendo Download: Pokemon Bank for Sun and Moon

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...
