  • News Sega Forever Manager Blames Mobile Fragmentation For Shortcomings

    "If you look at the vast majority of feedback it's been strong"

    Following the release of Sega Forever on smart devices last week, there were quite a lot of comments on social media decrying the quality of its emulation. Digital Foundry's John Linneman was perhaps one of the more vocal critics due to his years of experience in dealing with the...

    Will no doubt focus heavily on Breath of the Wild

    The Japan Expo in Paris is only a couple of weeks away, and it's an event Nintendo has often supported. Last year Nintendo ran a Splatoon Squid Sisters concert, reminiscent of the performances that proved to be such a hit in Japan. This year Nintendo's key contribution is a Masterclass...

    Pokémon Go Raid Battles are the biggest thing to happen to the game since, well, forever.

    Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Breath of the Wild move back up

    The UK chart results are out and bring mixed news from a Nintendo perspective. While two big hits got a boost in sales courtesy of "renewed stock" - which likely relates to the Switch hardware getting some fresh units last week - a new 3DS arrival struggled. To start with the good news,...

    Review Mighty Gunvolt Burst

    A mighty burst of pixel platforming perfection

    In the vacuum left behind by the absence of Capcom’s popular Mega Man series, two major alternatives have sprouted up in an effort to take the top spot as the definitive run ‘n’ gun action platformer. These projects — created in parallel — have been headed by various staff that had a hand in...

    Review Runbow Pocket Deluxe Edition

    Close, but not quite

    When Runbow released for the Wii U back in 2015, we praised it as one of the best games on the platform. Sadly, despite an excellent critical reception, the colourful platformer didn’t reach the audience it could have due to the Wii U’s limited install base.  13AM is aiming to share its opus with a different audience...

  • News More Rumours Add Weight to Talk of a SNES Classic Mini

    It seems inevitable, right?

    The NES Classic Mini is a cool little device and proved hugely popular, though sadly Nintendo botched the whole supply and demand thing. The success of the hardware, and the buzz it brought in the Holiday season last year, certainly makes rumours of a SNES Classic Mini this year seem feasible. It could be announced...

    The Nintendo Switch has sailed past the one million units sold market in its native Japan after 16 weeks of sale, Dengeki is reporting.
