Minecraft: Story Mode keeps up its brisk schedule with Episode 3 out next week

This minecart just keeps on a-rollin' (whether we care about it or not). After having met up with and then subsequently lost track of Ellegaard and Magnus in Assembly Required, the team is now searching out the fourth member of the Order of...   read

Everything we know about Cloud in Smash Bros. from both a Final Fantasy and Smash perspective

In the wake of last week's reveal of Final Fantasy's Cloud coming to Super Smash Bros., some people have managed to put together videos analyzing his introduction in great detail. We have two great examples for you. The first, by GameXplai...   read

That's more like it, Star Fox Zero

Comparing recent Star Fox Zero footage to what was shown in June, it's clear Nintendo made the right call when it delayed the Wii U game to April 22, 2016. Besides visual upgrades, the extra time is going toward improving the GamePad experi...   read

Cat Mario is still adorable in his Super Mario Maker 8-bit form

I'm still miffed that the costumes in Super Mario Maker only work in their 8-bit renditions, but you have to give it to Nintendo for adding so many to the game. Next up on the block is Cat Mario and Cat Peach, which can be unlocked by play...   read

Uh, Mario? Is that you?

Super Mario Maker got an important update last night. My focus was drawn to the new costumes and much-needed ability to lay down checkpoints in levels, but Nintendo also slipped in an easter egg. It's super easy to access, but I doubt I wou...   read

Pulling a reverse Smash Bros., Hyrule Warriors launched on the Wii U last year and is getting an updated version on 3DS, Hyrule Warrios Legends, sometime next year. It's January 21 in Japan, first quarter 2016 for America and Europe. King ...   read

The Mario Tennis roster has at least one pleasant surprise

The more I see of Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash, the more I want to wait for an eventual sale. I've played a little, and it does feels good, but my concerns about Camelot not breaking enough new ground persist. There are also too many games com...   read

Dark Mewtwo is actually Shadow Mewtwo

Just a bit of housekeeping. The new Mewtwo form copped over the weekend is officially Shadow Mewtwo, not Dark Mewtwo as early sleuths sussed. Makes sense what with its "Shadow ___" moves. Not too much else revealed in the characters' debut...   read

Mewtwo gets a new form in Pokken Tournament

Watching livestreams of video games is something I've never been able to get into, but perhaps it's time I start trying to learn how to enjoy them. Last night during a Japanese stream of Pokkén Tournament, Mewtwo was unveiled as a fi...   read

Old favorites return in Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash

Lately, Nintendo hasn't said much about Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash other than to note its fast-approaching November 20, 2015 release date for Wii U. Today isn't much different. This latest video confirms a few unsurprising roster additions (...   read

There's a Gardevoir in this Pokken Tournament trailer

Sure, this general Pokkén Tournament trailer is a little less balls to the wall exciting than seeing Luchador Pikachu doing a Stone Cold Stunner, but, hey, there's some Gardevoir action going on, eh? The Bandai Namco-developed fight...   read

Yoshi's Woolly World is such a happy game

I'm about halfway through Yoshi's Woolly World and I am so grateful to have a dedicated co-op partner. There's this intoxicating contrast between the cute, handcrafted aesthetic and our innate desire to screw one another over as much as pos...   read

Zelda and Zero Suit Samus costumes in Fatal Frame

Nintendo labels new Fatal Frame trailer 'extremely spoopy'

Nintendo has taken a page out of Sega's book and proved that it is hip, cool, and totally down with the jive slang and dank memes of the internet today by labeling the new trailer for Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water "extremely spoop...   read

There's a devious Mario Maker war going on between two well-known games journalists

We've seen Mario Maker bring out the insidious in people. Plenty of folks are creating levels that are downright devilish. However, few of them have grabbed the spotlight quite like what's happening between two well-known video game j...   read

When a Mario level is named 'P is for Pain,' you're in trouble

We've got another diabolical Super Mario Maker level for you to marvel at and probably not play. I like this one not only for its name, "P is for Pain," but for its use of limited tools. It's designed almost entirely around P Switches and s...   read

Mario Maker player subverts guilt-trip level to save every Yoshi

Some level creators are using Super Mario Maker as a platform to make us feel guilty. They're dreaming up courses that put Yoshi in harm's way and have it so Mario can't reach the end without sacrificing his faithful companion for the great...   read
