There's a disturbing lack of Xenoblade here…

It's hard to believe, but we're already fast approaching the Holiday season for 2015.

While it is a pretty safe bet that no Nintendo games will be leading the charts this season, there's...

Put Some Boo in Your Pumpka with Halloween Pokémon Stencils

Gotta carve 'em all!

Pokémon has really gotten into the Halloween spirit as of late, showcasing a series of holiday-themed merch in its online store. Just look at that Pikachu dressed as a vampiric Zubat.

Killing gods likely to be prominent

Bandai Namco Launches Quirky 'Twitter Plays' Campaign for Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden

That won't be timeline spamming at all

Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden is getting ever closer to its Western release, and Bandai Namco has announced a quirky social media campaign that's clearly taken some inspiration from Twitch Plays - it's going for 'Twitter Plays'. As you can see in the trailer below you're supposed to sign-up on the official...

A New Shin Megami Tensei Announcement Has Been Teased by Atlus

New game on the horizon?

The Japanese website for Shin Megami Tensei IV has been recently updated with a very curious image of a stone wall accompanied by some text which apparently says something to the effect that in 15,000 tweets a disaster will occur. This could be anything related to the series, but do keep in mind that a representative from...

The recurring easter egg strikes again

Nintendo's UK Store Gives Free eShop Copy of Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer Following Order Delay

Pretty darn generous

Earlier today we reported that GAME sent a letter of apology and £10 of store credit to those affected by issues of multiple Super Mario Maker pre-order payments. That was a reasonable goodwill gesture, though it seems to be a day of UK retailers going out of their way to apologise to customers that have been let down. The...

Terraria Shines on Wii U and 3DS

The wait is almost over

There were a load of indie games to try out at EGX this year, and many of those were on the Nintendo stand. One title with firm indie roots, although now outgrown its stable, is Terraria. As you no doubt know this is the 2D side scrolling Minecraft-a-like that actually has much more going for it than simplified block...

GX Hunter Armor Stars in Penultimate Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate DLC Update

Just one more to go

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate has provided a huge amount of content on the 3DS, and for those with regular online hunting buddies or a lot of skill, the free monthly DLC has certainly kept things interesting. The October content is now up and, sadly, it means we only have one more set of DLC to come. In terms of what's available...

The Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition International Tournament is Now Open in North America

Who will win?

You'd be forgiven for forgetting about Puzzle & Dragons Z + Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition. Though we thought it was rather good, the relatively obscure puzzle title released somewhat stealthily in May and failed to make as much of an impact on Western audiences as Nintendo hoped. Evidently in an effort to spread...

Christmas comes early this year

Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash Could Possibly be the Last Game in the Franchise

"To be honest, this might be the last chance for us."

It's been somewhat under the radar, but Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash is only a couple weeks away from launching in North America. The fairly niche action platformer starring that adorable miniature robot will represent a new direction for the franchise by being a 2D platformer, evidently in an effort to...

Building blocks for success

The Japanese Media Create chart results are out once again, and despite an absence of major new releases this time around there's good news for Nintendo. New releases in Japan have been on Vita, PS4 and PS3, though none have shifted significant numbers. In fact Nintendo system exclusives occupy the top three places, with...
