#Nintendo Entertainment System


Yes, really photo

The NES just got a brand new competitive shooter

The Nintendo Entertainment System's last officially licensed title released in December of 1994 (name that game!), but that hasn't stopped chiptune artist and now homebrew NES game dev Dustin Long from releasing a new title. Star Versus&nb...

Obscure Video Games: Kick Challenger - Air Foot

In 1986 Nintendo released the Famicom Disk System add-on for the Famicom in Japan. For some reason the company decided it wasn't worth the time to sell it anywhere else in the world, but that didn't stop game makers from releasing over 200 ...

Obscure Video Games: Magical Doropie

Yes, video game nerds, I know Vic Tokai localized Magical Doropie as The Krion Conquest in North America. However, the Japanese version is superior (and has a nice fan translation), so that's why I played it. For those of you unfamiliar wi...

 
 
Nintendo TV photo

That time Sharp built an NES into a television

A television set with a built-in Nintendo Entertainment System sounds like the sort of extravagant purchase I'd make if, as a youngster, I was nearly run over by a bad man and he handed me a blank check that I could then proceed to cash fo...

Obscure Video Games: Panic Restaurant

So this week I decided to go crazy and review a game that actually saw release in the US. I still consider it pretty obscure, though. The game is Panic Restaurant, a 1992 NES release from the late, legendary game designer Kenji Eno and his ...

StarTropics music glitch fixed after 25 years

There's a sub-community of emulation fans out there dedicated to disassembling and modifying the arcane code of yesteryear's classics. Brad Smith, a.k.a. rainwarrior, is one such individual, who after hearing the errors in two music tracks...

Mario will haunt your dreams

Here's a photo for your nightmare file. It's '80s versions of Wil Wheaton and Jason Bateman kickin' it with possibly the worst version of Mario that Nintendo marketing could ever dream of. According to the "article," Wheaton and Bateman wer...

 
 
Woah Dave! NES photo

You could play Woah Dave! on an actual NES cart

Do you ever think about what it would be like to play your favorite sprite-based indie games on the consoles they were influenced by? Well, you might be able to do just that with Woah Dave!, an NES-inspired game which could possibly be comi...

 
 
Mario Lost Levels photo

I didn't expect this to be my favorite AGDQ 2015 speedrun

First, a quick thank you to Destructoid reader lunarwhale for bringing this Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels speedrun to my attention. I naively thought I'd watch a minute or two, tops, right before going to bed, but ended up sticking th...

Dark water and the things below give me the shivers

If we're all confessing our gaming-related fears, I might as well share mine. I can't stand the water. More specifically, I can't stand what lives under the water. If there is ever a section of a game that will make me want to stop playing,...

 
 
Funhouses photo

I think videogames made me hate funhouses

I don't like funhouses, although, I suppose I haven't given them a fair shake. I've never been inside one, but I'm pretty certain that makes no difference. You see, videogames trained me at a very young age to hate funhouses. I'm sure that ...

Get retro with the Destructoid shirt and hoodie!

It's about time we did something like this! The Destructoid Videogame News System captures the retro Nintendo Entertainment System box covers with an 8-bit Destructoid. The new design was created by the talented Drew Wise, and you can grab ...

 
 
NES Remix 2 photo

NES Remix 2 has a secret unlock code

I'm still messing around with NES Remix 2, and naturally, I have all the games unlocked. But some people may not be as tenacious, still noodling around with some of the tougher Dr. Mario or Wario's Woods stages, and I totally get ...

Pick up replacement game manuals at Nintendo's online store

If you've got a ton of Nintendo games just laying around without manuals and there are no gamer yard sales around to pillage, Nintendo has just the answer. The online store is selling a bevy of replacement manuals for games like Banjo Kazoo...

Don't expect the NES Remix games to come to 3DS

I'd be playing NES Remix 2 right now were it not for my tragic lack of a Wii U. (Almost made an impulse purchase the other day.) With the sequel out this week, one question that might've crossed your mind is, "Why not also put these games o...

I want NES Remix 2 in my Wii U right now

Although I enjoyed the original NES Remix for what it was, the upcoming sequel is packed with more games that defined my childhood. Classics like Kirby's Adventure, Metroid, Mario 3 -- the call of enhanced challenges and remixed ...

 
 
Zelda NES photo

Waste some time today with this Zelda demake

For the upcoming Ludum Dare Game Jam, developer benpurdy produced a demake for the original Legend of Zelda titled "Zelda in 16x16 pixels." This is more or less the entire game here, with all eight pieces of the Triforce in tow. You'll use ...

 
 
 
Rescue Rangers photo

Check out Rescue Rangers NES reimagined by the Owlboy artist

As I've said many times in the past, Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers for the NES is one of my favorite retro games. It has a host of secrets, optional paths, tight controls, and it's infinitely replayable due to its quick speed and two pla...

This lowest-score run of Super Mario Bros. is impressive

It may not be a flawless run, but YouTube user NotEntirelySure's playthrough of Super Mario Bros. is a riot all the same. He cleared the game with the lowest possible score, 500 points, without the aid of save states or slowdown. That near...

 
 
NES Remix photo

Japan is getting NES Remix 1+2 at retail

NES Remix 2 looks better to me than its predecessor by virtue of the new featured games and one can only imagine where Nintendo could take this concept if it kept going -- if it didn't restrict itself to the same console again. SNES Remix n...

The Legend of Zelda's Moblins have an identity crisis

Bulldogs or pigs? Why can't The Legend of Zelda's Moblins make up their minds on just who they want to be? Actually, it's quite interesting to see how these absent minded minions of Gannon have continuously bounced back and forth in design...
