Catch the Skull Kid in Action in the Latest Hyrule Warriors Legends Showcase

Tatl and Tael bring the pain

Koei Tecmo has been releasing plenty of videos for Hyrule Warriors Legends recently to showcase new characters in action. Now it's the term of Skull Kid, with the iteration from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask being new in this 3DS entry.

Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival Has Modest Impact in Japan as 3DS Sales Improve

Wii U is still comfortably in five figures

The latest Media Create Japanese chart results are in and bring a mix of good and bad news for Nintendo. Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival has, unsurprisingly considering the trends elsewhere, struggled to achieve notable sales; the Wii U title shifted just 20,303 units in its first week, well down on the...

Nintendo Kindly Reminds Us That amiibo Exist With This Timely Festive Commercial

"Tis the season to discover the power inside!"

With the Wii U and 3DS approaching the end of their lifespans and the release schedule looking rather bare, the amiibo range is going to be more important than ever to Nintendo this Christmas.

Story of Seasons Hits Europe on 8th January, Australia the Next Day

The Not-Harvest Moon finally arrives

The story behind Story of Seasons is a rather strange one. While it may be a Harvest Moon title in Japan, XSEED Games had to change the name in the West due to licensing. So, it's a Harvest Moon in every possible way, but it just can't be called that over here. The situation is complicated further, then, because...

It's Not Fun to Criticise Nintendo Games, But It's Been Unavoidable in 2015

Tom Whitehead assures you he's not on a maniacal quest to destroy Nintendo

I love the first Jurassic Park movie, which combined perfect casting with terrific film-making flair and a script touched by genius. Memorable characters and one-liners are everywhere, and at the time of release the dinosaurs were a visual effects revelation and, to be...

Watch What Happens When Reggie and Bill Speak Their Minds

Those mischievous Yo-Kai!

For those of you that watched the Nintendo Direct, you probably remember the humourous short that advertised Yo-Kai Watch. Bill Trinen arrived to a meeting early, where he was soon influenced by Hungramps and subsequently stuffed his face with donuts. If nothing else, it was an amusing skit and it did a great job of showing...

Nintendo Launches eBay Store for North America

No amiibo for a hundred bucks, surprisingly

The last time we wrote about eBay we were probably despairing at scalpers flogging limited edition consoles or amiibo at ludicrous prices in the height of demand and low supply. The topic is Nintendo once again, but this time it's an official store on the marketplace - without a $100 Gold Mario amiibo to...

Even the Monk is ready for battle

We all love a good infographic, right?

Mega Man Legacy Collection Gets a Budget Price as a Download-Only Release in Europe

Better than a Mega Buster shot to the face

Mega Man Legacy Collection is a slightly strange release on the 3DS - not so long ago Capcom released all six original 'classic' style NES games on the 3DS eShop as individual Virtual Console offerings; now you can play them again in a collection that throws in a Challenge mode and a Museum section to view...
