    Our favourites so far

    With E3 2014 right around the corner, Nintendo seems set to prioritise the Wii U in its Digital Event, subsequent coverage and, of course, the Super Smash Bros. Invitational.

    Luigi, Wario, tanks fighting bugs, X Zone craziness and much more

    It's that time again, North America, when your Nintendo systems groan under the weight of new download offerings cramming up virtual servers. That's not always strictly accurate, but is this week, with plenty of new titles available on Wii U and 3DS, with a sequel even gracing...

  • News Game & Wario Brings Mayhem to North America on 23rd June

    It looks suitably bonkers

    Game & Wario is a game that promises "GamePad Pandemonium", yet the latter adjective was a good description for the sheer volume of reveals and information that came from the most recent Nintendo Direct broadcast. One story that we didn't cover right away but want to bring to your attention is the release date for...

  • First Impressions Game & Wario

    No Ware out

    Wario's first Wii U appearance isn't quite what we've come to expect from the garlic-munching gold grabber. Instead of a platformer or a new entry in the micro game-fuelled WarioWare series, Game & Wario is a collection of more fleshed out mini games that shows off what Nintendo's new home console can do with a single GamePad. Game...

  • E3 2012 Game & Wario is Like Wario Ware, But On Wii U

    He's-a gonna ween

    Nintendo just pulled the cover off Game & Wario (temporary title), a Wii U compilation that's like WarioWare blended with Game & Watch. The title's minigames use only the Wii U GamePad, so we'll hopefully see some very smart uses of that new touch screen controller. One screenshot shows Jimmy, on skis, in HD. What more do...
