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...   read

Get an idea of what Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is all about

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is almost ready to drop in Japan (on April 20, before its worldwide May 19 date), so Nintendo saw fit to provide a seven minute trailer to go over all of its new features, and some old ones. Of n...   read

How many Pokemon can you name in 20 seconds?

At one point I could name every Generation 1 Pokemon in order. I'm a little rusty, but I can still mostly do it -- unless someone gave me a time limit. That's just what Nintendo did with Game Freak producer Junichi Masuda, when he's as...   read

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment manages to differentiate itself quite a bit, here's some gameplay

Yacht Club Games is gearing up for their second free expansion for the original Shovel Knight -- a game that I felt was wholly complete on its own, but is somehow the gift that keeps on giving. Plague Knight was really good, ...   read

Poochy & Yoshi shorts are cute as hell, easy to take out of context

There's something to be said about emotive art. Whether it's gibberish talk like Banjo Kazooie or pantomiming, I love that a common development issue like a lack of a budget can lead to some amazing characters that say so much without ...   read

Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 just got its first DLC drop in Japan

Inti Creates is rolling out the DLC for Azure Striker Gunvolt 2, and unfortunately, none of it involves a sequel to Mighty Gunvolt (even if Mighty No. 9 is taken out back and shot, I still want to see a follow-up with Gunvolt and Ekoro...   read

Insanely cute Yoshi clip runs through the little guy's history

My most fond memories of Yoshi usually involve flinging him over a chasm to survive in Super Mario World. But in this amazingly adorable clip from Nintendo promoting Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World, we clearly see he has other ideas. The ...   read

Drone Fight for 3DS looks like a minature version of Virtual On

It's only confirmed for Japan at the moment with a December 28 release date (and a cheap 500 yen price), but Drone Fight looks cooler than most of the third-party games released on the 3DS eShop lately. It's part racer part action game...   read

What's new in Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World?

Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World is out in early February, and I feel like we don't know a whole lot about it other than that it's a port of the Wii U platformer from 2015. Thankfully there's this brief overview video to help people out if...   read

My God, Indiana Jones Jibanyan is amazing

While things looked bleak for Yo-Kai Watch localizations just over a year ago, we've since gotten two main entries in that period in the west. Level-5 is pushing it hard overseas, and even though it hasn't reached Japan's level of success, ...   read

Someone told me Pokemon's Z-Ring was for kids, so I ordered one

Pokemon Sun and Moon is here today (it feels weird saying that), and you can order a whole lot of plastic junk to go along with it. It's not DLC like anything in the Skylanders series or even amiibo, mind, it's just a literal hunk...   read

If I saw half these Pokemon in real life I'd freak the hell out

At the drop of a hat, Pokemon can go from adorable to creepy. If I saw a squeaking Litten on the beach, I'd probably smile and go running over to pick it up. If I was walking around in a forest in Hawaii and saw an Alola...   read
