  • Random Runner Injects Flappy Bird Code into Super Mario World

    An interesting work of sacrilege

    The ability to practically program code into Super Mario World through the use of glitches opens up all sorts of possibilities, some definitely more bizarre than others. Just look toward speedrunner and tinkerer Sethbling, who managed to turn Mario into a Flappy Bird clone. Sethbling injected the code using...






  • Video How To Game Safe On Valentine's Day

    Who wants to go out, when you can have a romantic night of gaming?

    It's that time of the year, which is either a celebration of your love to another person, or just another day for those who aren't quite as lucky. Alas, this is a video for those of the former category, but the single folk amongst you could do worse than make some notes for that...






  • Feature Ten Wii U and 3DS Games That Are Perfect For Summer

    Remember, you don't want sunburn, so play some games

    As you may know, we aim to provide interesting feature content on a daily basis here at Nintendo Life, whether through interviews, Soapboxes, Talking Points or more general articles like this that have a catch-all 'Feature' prefix. It's been challenging at Nintendo Life HQ, though, because the...


  • Feature Our Top 10 Wii U Retail Games - Summer 2014

    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. The 3DS will have a role to play, of course, but many eyes are on Nintendo's home console to see how it'll capitalise on the recent success of Mario Kart...



  • News Nintendo Comes Up Empty at BAFTA Awards


    Nintendo's been picking up a decent number of awards in recent months, with varied winners such as Super Mario 3D World, Animal Crossing: New Leaf and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds winning in various ceremonies and multiple categories. The gravy train can't keep running forever, however, as Nintendo has been left empty-handed at...

  • News Super Mario 3D World Picks Up SXSW 2014 Best Multiplayer Game Award

    Quite right, too

    Super Mario 3D World has done rather well for itself, shifting a respectable number of copies, earning critical acclaim and picking up a host of award nominations and wins. We now have another to add to the list, with the delightful platformer picking up the Best Multiplayer Game award at the SXSW event this past weekend. Nintendo...




  • News Eurogamer's Game of the Year is a Nintendo Winner

    A purrfect result?

    Later today we'll publish the results of our staff votes for Game of the Year, in a whole host of categories, with the Reader votes to be counted and shared tomorrow for the Community Awards. We're fascinated to see which games come out as winners in various categories, but while we collate votes we thought we'd share the overall...

  • Feature 12 Days of Christmas - Super Mario 3D World Captures Hearts

    A perfect Christmas Day game

    Over the past two weeks we've covered eleven games, trends or events from the year that we feel represent some of the best of Nintendo in 2013; we'll have a lot more 2013 reminiscences and Game of The Year awards in the coming week, too. Yet it seemed appropriate to end this series on potentially the biggest high for...

  • Video Nintendo Minute Chooses Its Top Games of the Year

    All must have games

    Over the past week we've shared a mini series of videos from "Nintendo Minute", a regular YouTube show from Nintendo of America. Its hosts have been shortlisting their favourite 3DS, eShop and Wii U games, and in the final part confirmed each other's top choices. We should think only one guess is required to predict the Wii U...

  • News Wii U Sales Jump Again as Nintendo Maintains Hardware Dominance in Japan

    It's the most wonderful time of the year

    After a year of enjoying the triumph of 3DS in Japan while wincing at Wii U sales, it seems both of Nintendo's systems are now showing strong form in Japan. This week's results see another major leap for the Wii U, while the 3DS has an outstanding week along with the highest selling software titles. To start...

  • Feature 12 Days of Christmas - Year of Luigi

    Yay green!

    This is the first of 12 special features that will look back and highlight some of the best things Nintendo gave us in 2013. It's only natural that we start with the mascot that made 2013 his own. 2013, the Year of Luigi. Though, it may incorporate some of 2014, but let's not quibble. Nintendo declared this to be the green one's year...

  • News Nintendo Announces Its YouTube Video Challenge Winner

    They're off to Sundance for a DK project

    In recent times Nintendo of America has been running a contest with a number of popular YouTube channels, in which they were challenged to produce videos based on Super Mario 3D World or The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD. We featured one of the entries, in which a cat wasn't impressed by the idea of...

  • News NPD Results Deliver a 3DS Milestone And Modest Wii U Sales

    3DS contributes towards NPD's best November hardware sales on record

    After some speculation over performance during the Black Friday period, the NPD sales results — which cover the U.S. market — have begun to emerge. Nintendo has issued its press release to give its version of events that paint a particularly positive picture for the 3DS, while...

  • News Super Mario 3D World Drops Down UK Charts in Second Week

    Link Between Worlds is top Nintendo game in 19th place

    Last week brought the PS4 to Europe, which made life rather difficult for Super Mario 3D World on its UK charts début. While it had been hoped that the staying power of the franchise may see it enjoy a strong second week in the UK market, today's all-format charts haven't produced the desired...

  • News Super Mario 3D World Picks Up Best Nintendo Game VGX Award

    Animal Crossing: New Leaf wins Best Casual Game

    As a nominee, if not the ultimate winner, of the VGX Game of the Year award, there's an air of inevitability to the news that Super Mario 3D World has scooped the Best Nintendo Game VGX prize. Mario's latest adventure was up against some strong competition from other Wii U releases, in the forms of...
