How Fire Emblem amiibo Interact with Fates

Memories of distant Battlefields...

In what likely comes as a surprise to absolutely nobody, Fire Emblem Fates comes with amiibo compatibility for figures from the series. One fun little twist, however, seems to be a solid nod to where these characters had been employed between installments. According to the folks at Siliconera, Robin, Lucina, Ike,...

Kirby Squeak Squad (Wii U eShop / DS)

Squeaky Clean Fun

For a company so often associated as being at the forefront of innovative thinking in the video game industry, Nintendo can have a tendency to stick with a tried and tested formula. The Mario, Zelda and Pokémon franchises have all received their share of criticism for not drastically changing their instalments over the years, and...

Splatoon Amiibo Scheduled to be Restocked in Japan

Initially kid, then squid

Splatoon has undoubtedly been a huge success since release, with the game already shifting over 1 million sales worldwide. Much of the title's success has been in its native home of Japan, and those sales - coupled with the characteristically low stock of amiibo - resulted in the Splatoon amiibo vanishing fast from Japanese...

FreezeME, Coming to Wii U, Looks Rather Similar to Super Mario Galaxy

From indie dev Rainy Night Creations

There are plenty of new development studios that have chosen the Wii U eShop for their début release, and Rainy Night Creations is another with FreezeME, a 3D platformer that's still planned for the system despite a failed Kickstarter campaign earlier in the year. A couple of years in the works (a mix of part-...

G.G Series CONVEYOR TOY PACKING (DSiWare)

Fresh off the conveyor belt

Packing away hundreds of toys rolling off of a factory conveyor belt, who hasn't had that dream? The next title in the G.G series is another falling block puzzler, and while it presents a unique and enjoyable type of gameplay, it's impeded somewhat by some suppressive game mechanics and an uninspired soundtrack. That...

The Square Enix Teases for Dragon Quest 3DS Localisations Ramp Up

Could it finally happen?

Dragon Quest is a franchise with a decent recent history on Nintendo portables, exemplified by the global release of Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies on 3DS. Since that time it's been a franchise - from a Nintendo fans' perspective - stuck in Japan, however, with a Dragon Quest VII re-release on 3DS in Spring...

Garfield Kart (3DS)

We'd prefer Lasagne Sim 2016

Mario Kart has gone from strength to strength over the years, and many of us have our own personal favourite entries in this superb series; as Mario Kart has evolved, so have rival Kart games from other developers. There have been some notable successes; Diddy Kong Racing and Crash Team Racing spring to mind, but head...

Yoshi's Woolly World and Splatoon Hang Tough in UK Charts

LEGO Jurassic Park on Wii U starts well

The UK chart results are in and, while Nintendo is hardly storming away at the top, it has some cause to be pleased. Some key titles are still shifting units, while a third-party effort's also had a reasonable start. Yoshi's Woolly World made its début in 4th place, and in its second week saw a 60% drop in...

G.G Series BLACK X BLOCK (DSiWare)

Block Dude 2.0
