Japan gets Phantasy Star Online 2: Cloud on Nintendo Switch

I'm not really a Phantasy Star fan, good thing too, as I'd be permanently miserable about the lack of love shown in my region and elsewhere for the classic RPG series. The misery continues as Nintendo have announced Phantasy Star Online 2: ...


Here's everything you missed in today's Nintendo Direct

Not five minutes into today's 45-minute Nintendo Direct presentation, I felt like I was drowning in bite-sized 3DS announcements and release-window confirmations for known entities. The company quickly covered a lot of ground before reachi...

Since 2013 Nintendo has chosen to skip the financial cost of hosting a press conference at the yearly Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles. Instead they have broadcast their own pre-recorded Nintendo Direct while the expo is occurri...


Watch the Splatoon 2 and Arms Nintendo Direct right here

I miss morning Nintendo Directs. I mean, I guess evening broadcasts make sense for the west coast, but even on the east coast a lot of people are still at work at 6PM ET, and some in Europe are going to bed. Scratch that, a lot of west coas...
