    Pokémon here, Pokémon there

    As part of its Q3 2019 financial update, Nintendo has provided up-to-date lists for its best-selling games across current consoles. We've already shared the current top ten best-selling Switch games, but what about the 3DS? Well, as it happens, the top ten 3DS games are exactly the same now as they were three month

  • News Nintendo of America Confirms Another 2DS Bargain Bundle

    The one that hit Europe back in 2014

    Sometimes specific bundles and special editions take a while to hit various regions, but Nintendo of America wins the prize for one of the least expected 'catch ups' we've seen in a while. It's confirmed a 2DS bundle for the region, a version of which arrived in the same basic form in Europe way back in July...

  • News New Super Mario Bros. Discounts Hit My Nintendo for PAL Gamers

    No doubt timed for the launch of Super Mario Run

    Super Mario Run arrives on iOS on 15th December, and could prove to be an enormous success for Nintendo. We'll see whether that turns out to be the case, but My Nintendo in PAL territories (Europe / Australia / New Zealand) is offering a couple of appropriate discounts to celebrate the release. The...

  • Video The Play Nintendo Show Makes Its YouTube Debut

    Featuring a talking Piranha Plant and an 'interesting' Reggie cameo

    Nintendo has been making some interesting moves in its efforts to promote its games and systems to young gamers, and it's an area we've argued can see further improvement. Play Nintendo in North America has been strong in this respect with an impressive website that's full of...

  • Poll Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer?

    2D or 3D, old or new, you decide...

    Not too long ago we asked you to vote for the best Legend of Zelda game; plenty of you participated. You made the impossible decision, as it's never an easy pick with so many world class games on the list; in the end the iconic and memorable The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time seized the crown.

  • News New Super Mario Bros. 2 Coin Total Passes One Trillion

    Golly gosh

    When it comes to New Super Mario Bros. 2 it really is all about the money (money, money). Mario and Luigi collect a ridiculous number of coins, so much so that the game keeps a tally of your total and adds it to a worldwide pot; the last time we reported on it 300 billion coins had been snagged. Those kind of numbers are so 2012, however,...

  • Nintendo Download 15th August (Europe)

    DuckTales returns, 'mon rumble, extreme bike riding and much more

    It's time for the European Nintendo Download news to wipe away our Monday morning blues, and this week is one of the most packed line-ups in recent memory. There are two heavy-hitting Wii U releases, and plenty of others spread throughout the 3DS, DSi and Wii. There are some discounts...

  • News Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros. Retains Third Spot in UK Charts

    New Leaf is just one place behind

    There was a time in the earlier days of the 3DS when new game releases, even first-party titles, would flirt with the UK all-format top ten on their debut week and drop away rather quickly afterwards. Momentum wasn't a word often uttered, as the system strove to establish a user base and challenge the big boys...

  • News Animal Crossing: New Leaf Secures Second in the UK Charts, Again

    A fine performance from the 3DS exclusive

    Animal Crossing: New Leaf is hot stuff right now, earning Nintendo plenty of Bells as it continues to attract gamers and cause obsessions over fossils, tree shaking and the latest cool hats available to buy. It's not often a title as quirky and twee as New Leaf sells in big numbers and engages gamers of all...

  • Feature Our Top 10 3DS Games - Summer 2013

    The favourites so far

    With E3 2013 now a little over a week away, we expect a lot of talk to focus on the Wii U and its competitors, as the home consoles prepare for a battle at the retailers this Holiday season. And yet, we feel we should take another opportunity at this juncture to show some love for the 3DS, the handheld that overcame a rocky...

    Drop some coin on new level packs. UPDATE: Pricing and pack info.

    If you found the rather good New Super Mario Bros. 2 to be rather short, you may soon give its lifespan a 1-up with three new level packs. Announced in a seemingly spontaneous Nintendo Direct hosted by NCL boss Satoru Iwata, the packs, all due on 2nd October in Japan and costing 200...

  • News New Super Mario Bros. 2 Smashes The One Million Barrier In Japan

    New 3DS title has sold faster than Mario 3D Land

    New Super Mario Bros. 2 has sold a staggering 1,068,878 units in Japan since it was released on July 28th - five weeks ago. The figure has been reported in the latest Enterbrain chart, which covers August 27th through September 2nd. The previous Mario title on the 3DS - Super Mario 3D Land - took...

  • News New Super Mario Bros. 2 Global Coin Total Surpasses 50 Billion

    That's a whole lot of coins collected!

    If you live in Europe or North America and have enabled SpotPass on New Super Mario Bros. 2 you should have recently received your first update to let you know how many coins have been collected by Mario fans globally. We reported on this a few days ago when Japanese players got their first update, at that...

  • Tips New Super Mario Bros. 2 Rainbow Courses

    A handy pot of gold

    It takes relatively little time to beat the main Worlds in New Super Mario Bros. 2, but it adds many, many hours with unlockable levels, collectibles and secrets to discover. Yesterday we shared two small tips that would allow you to play as Luigi in single player and to keep those hard earned profile stars sparkling. Due to...

  • Tips Two New Super Mario Bros. 2 Secrets

    Don't worry, fun but (relatively) spoiler free

    If you're anything like the members of the Nintendo Life team, you're probably well on your way through New Super Mario Bros. 2, perhaps even beaten it, and are currently scrabbling around levels looking for elusive star coins and secrets. This title may hand out extra lives like they've gone out of...

  • News New Super Mario Bros. 2 Worldwide Coin Total Surpasses 36 Billion

    May be used to buy 17% of Apple

    Those of you that have picked up New Super Mario Bros. 2 have probably also enabled SpotPass, which will be used to contribute your haul to the world coin total. We'd also assume that Nintendo will send regular updates so we can all see how ludicrously high that total gets. While there haven't been any updates as yet...

  • News New Super Mario Bros. 2 Typo Isn't So Golden

    More grammatical 'revelaitons'

    It can be a pastime of some gamers to chortle at spelling errors or sloppy typos in video games, with many recently enjoying a typo by Capcom in its now infamous Resident Evil Revelaitons packaging for, of course, Revelations. While that version of the packaging became, bizarrely, a collector's item of sorts, it seems...

  • Nintendo Download 16th August 2012 (North America)

    Mario, musical DLC and crazy chickens

    Another week, another Nintendo Download update, though we do have to sadly inform you that this week's options are rather limited. A certain plumber makes his retail eShop debut at the weekend and in another discounted classic, but apart from that the options are rather slim and chicken-themed. Without further...
