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,...

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Wii U Game of 2016

In the best of times, "quality over quantity" has been the way of the Wii U. If you bought into the system knowing that you'd more than likely end up playing Nintendo-backed games and not a whole lot else, this isn't your first rodeo. That ...

Review: Darksiders: Warmastered Edition

Darksiders was one of the last generation's hidden gems, a dark, beautifully designed pastiche of several other action-adventure titles. Planned as a four-part series, the franchise only got as far as #Darksiders2 before publisher THQ decla...

Review: Paper Mario: Color Splash

I need to apologize in advance for what you're about to read. I'm about to gush about a game. I'm going to gush hard. I'm going to gush about its graphics, about its music, about its humor and about all the improvements it made over Pa...

So, just what is left for the Wii U?

With the release of Paper Mario: Color Splash today, the future of the Wii U is looking a bit thin. There is just one big Nintendo title left for the platform, and that appears to be it. The end of the Wii U feels a bit like the final ...

Review: Rive

It's weird for me to say I'm reviewing the final game from a developer. Two Tribes wasn't sold, nor is it shutting down. After 16 years and a changing industry it just can't keep up with, the team is just going to stop. Rive is supposedly t...

Toon Zelda is a g-g-g-g-g-g-g-g-girl

I was a bit surprised yesterday when Nintendo announced the next set of DLC for Hyrule Warriors had dropped. I knew it was coming, I just didn't expect it to come that day. Rumors pointed to Toon Zelda being the next new character for ...

Missed September's Nintendo Direct? Catch up here

No, there were no surprise NX details. But there was a lot of good stuff announced! A couple of Wii U to 3DS ports, some new (and surprising) games like Pikmin, and of course goofy skits in between! Here's the Direct, alongside a list of ev...

Nintendo is launching a miniature NES this holiday

You know all of those knock-off NES replicas you've seen at random stores like Walmart for the last 10 years? Well they're oddly going to have some official competition this holiday season. Ninendo has announced today that it's launching a ...

Miyamoto: Star Fox Zero is the most underrated Wii U game

Game Informer recently caught up with famed developer Shigeru Miyamoto, and asked him what the most underrated game on the Wii U was. His answer was somewhat predictable in Star Fox Zero, a passion project that he worked on for many ye...

Marin lets freedom ring in Hyrule Warriors

In just a couple of months, we'll be celebrating the two-year anniversary of Hyrule Warriors. Released in September 2014, it was the first of four games published by Nintendo that gave the flailing Wii U what little pulse it could muster fo...

Play Super Mario RPG on your Wii U now

Here's some news that's sweeter than a glass of Kerokero Cola or a handful of Rock Candy: Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars is coming to Wii U eShop tomorrow via Virtual Console. There's a lot of love for that game around thes...

 
 
 
Tokyo Mirage Sessions FE photo

Review: Tokyo Mirage Sessions FE

For a while there, it was easy to forget that Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem existed. Announced with great fanfare in 2013, we heard very little about the project for two years, until a trailer came along almost to proclaim "Yes, we ...

The next Wii U and NX Zelda is called 'Breath of the Wild'

Nintendo opened up E3 today with a look at the new Zelda, and man does it look beautiful. It somehow manages to have that Nintendo feel while giving off an aura of Team Ico, and I'm really digging it. Chopping trees, hunting, cooking? That'...

The new Zelda has a dang good horse

Ahead of Nintendo's Zelda-centric E3 next week, here's a new piece of artwork for the upcoming Wii U and NX game. Let's all take a brief moment to appreciate the majestic steed. It's great! In other video games, I would have this instinctua...

 
 
 
Star Fox Zero review photo

Review: Star Fox Zero

Depending on how it's wielded, nostalgia can either be a powerful tool or a crippling crutch. No publisher knows this better than Nintendo. Star Fox Zero is obvious in its pitch -- "Did you like Star Fox 64? Okay, then you'll love this...

 
 
Pokken Tournament Review photo

Review: Pokken Tournament

When I first heard of the existence of Pokkén Tournament, I wasn't completely sold. That is, until I actually played it in Japan. At that point, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it again. Having spent nearly two weeks with it on Wi...

Review: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD

My relationship with Twilight Princess is one of the most complicated I've come across in my entire gaming career. I completed it within a week of its launch on the Wii, and was left underwhelmed. It wasn't necessarily the waggle contr...

Review: Hyperkin ProCube controller

When I first saw Hyperkin's ProCube controller, I wanted to give it a go. Most of us have been disappointed with the fact that the Super Smash Bros. GameCube adapter only works with that one game, even if I did get a whole lot of use o...

Review: LEGO Marvel's Avengers

The MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) is intimidating, to say the least. In addition to all of the feature films there's also official tie-in comics, one-shot short films, multiple sequels that set up sequels, and now, eight separate televisi...
