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

Shovel Knight is getting a Nintendo Switch port and much more

Yacht Club Games is bringing its beloved platformer Shovel Knight to Nintendo Switch, which, hell yeah. That and that alone could've been the only news item on a day like today and I would've been thrilled. But there's far more, including u...   read

Yet another game canceled for Wii U, possibly moved to Switch

The Next Penelope, a Rock 'n' Roll Racing style game based on the epic The Odyssey, was pretty awesome. According to developer Aurelien Regard, it was also "always made for a Nintendo console" from the start, but it just hasn't worked out i...   read

Mighty No. 9 physical rewards still coming despite Comcept's total silence on the issue

This total and utter mess of a Kickstarter campaign isn't quite over yet. Recently, I've gotten several letters that Comcept still hasn't delivered on many of their promised physical backer rewards for Mighty No. 9 -- a Kickstarter tha...   read

How did Destructoid's most anticipated games of 2016 turn out?

One year ago, before 2016 became a hackneyed punchline ("2016? More like 2000-sucks-teen!!!" the peanut gallery offered when Johnny Depp tragically fell into an active volcano while doing the "Mannequin Challenge" on its rim), we had hope. ...   read

The makers of Poncho have some words of wisdom for indie developers

Poncho, the cute little indie puzzle platformer, has been out for well over a year. Did you play it? I didn’t, and apparently, I’m not alone in that. Despite being released on Steam, the PS4 and Wii U, the game was not successfu...   read

Pokemon Snap (view)finds itself on Wii U tomorrow

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

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'

Nintendo Download: Shantae: Half-Genie Hero

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
