Pokemon Snap (view)finds itself on Wii U tomorrow

After quite the time lapse, Pokemon Snap's finally getting some exposure again. Even though Nintendo's attention is aimed at the upcoming Switch, the 1999 Pokemon photography game is the focus of an eShop addition. Nintendo added an eShop p...   read

Here's a big list of 2017's gaming anniversaries

Looking over this list of series that are turning anywhere from five to 30, a wave of nostalgia and surprise ran over me. I mean, Mega Man's 30th? Rad as hell. Phantasy Star turning 30? I totally forgot, I was more of a Final Fantasy and Dr...   read

The Amazing Spider-Man games removed from Nintendo eShop

Both of the Amazing Spider-Man games that were last released on consoles were how should I say...playable. They tried to recapture the magic of the old school GameCube-era 3D series, but had a decent number of bugs that got in the way,...   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

Devil's Third online servers officially dead

Devil's Third may have had microtransactions crammed into its online mode that could have turned people off of it entirely, but it was damn fun for what it was. "Was" being the operative word here, because it's D-E-D dead now. We knew that ...   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

Mario Kart 64 headed to Wii U in North America tomorrow

Mario Kart 64 is one of those games to make me go, "Wait, that wasn't already on Wii U? How?!" It's true! European players have had access to the classic friendship-ruining racer since January, but over here, nothing. Nada. Zilch. Well, unt...   read

Rumor: Crashmo sequel cancelled for Wii U

All over the world, the series that started with Pushmo on 3DS is known by several names and sequel variations (Crashmo, Fallblox, Pullblox), but it might be at the end of its rope. According to a rumor from Liam Robertson, famed Nintendo l...   read

Kamiya shares his favorite Wonderful 101 songs, sadly tells us the soundtrack is out of print

While I didn't go as gaga about Wonderful 101 as some, I was wondering where all of the buzz was. Maybe it was the weird off-putting Sentai setup that made some westerners stay away, or the low installbase of the Wii U, but this game d...   read

Pachter says Switch is 'easy to develop for'

Michael Pachter is a name you've probably heard a few times before, and he's well known in the industry for his repeated calls for Nintendo to go third party or otherwise second-guessing the company's business decisions. That's why it stood...   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

Destructoid's award for Best Wii U Game of 2016 goes to...

It was a regrettably light year for Wii U releases, but that's not to say it was uneventful. This was the year that gave us an Atlus-developed, idol-centric JRPG that not only brought the storied Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem franchise...   read

Review: Shantae: 1/2 Genie Hero

WayForward may be one of the most underrated developers in the games industry. The studio mostly does contract work, frequently laboring on licensed projects like Adventure Time, though it's also worked on sequels and remakes like Contra 4,...   read

Bunch of $10 deals at GameStop: Ratchet and Clank, Star Wars Battlefront, and more

Ratchet and Clank for ten bucks is pretty much a steal. GameStop has a silent 'sale' on several console and PC games at this Hamilton sweet spot that might be worth a gander. Free shipping only happens if your total order is $24.99 or more ...   read

Wii U 32GB finally returns to $200 price at the Nintendo Store

Nintendo, in its late but infinite wisdom, has finally decided to discount the Wii U, now only $200 flat for its factory refurbished unit at the Nintendo Outlet store. The last time we saw this deal was over a year ago when Nintendo decided...   read

Drive your very own Mario Kart through the streets of Japan

I'm sure many of us have fantasized about driving in a real life Mario Kart race. The joy of whisking past players you've toppled with a red shell while casually dodging a Bob-omb would be a real treat for anyone. According to Good Morning ...   read

Nintendo: Quit cranking it to Super Mario Run and buy some other Marios too

The very first hint for Nintendo's new cell phone game, Super Mario Run, is that you can play one-handed. It's been a major part of the marketing, too. Here's Shigeru Miyamoto playing Super Mario Run while eating a large cake, from last wee...   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

Will Bloodstained be the latest game to ditch Wii U?

With basically every indie/Kickstarter developer pulling a 180 on their Wii U plans, it stands to reason that Bloodstained would too -- though nothing has been officially announced yet. Some people want the team to just tell backers now, so...   read

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Wii U Game of 2016

Another Banjo Kazooie inspired platformer bites the dust on Wii U

As it turns out, ceasing production of your barely four-year-old console isn't the greatest way to inspire other developers. In addition to the beloved Yooka-Laylee, which is no longer being ported to Wii U and is likely making th...   read

You know, up until this year, I’ve never had the chance to play the likes of Banjo Kazooie, Conker’s Bad Fur Day or any of the other oft-acclaimed Rareware classics. As a child, I never owned a Nintendo 64 of my own, and I rarel...   read
