Weirdness: Super Smash Bros. Fans Raise the Stakes With 'Falcon Potato' Minigame

Super Smash Bros. Fans Raise the Stakes With 'Falcon Potato' Minigame

A Falcon Punch for the loser

Last year we shared videos of some fun minigames that fans of Super Smash Bros. were creating with the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS releases. On the home console version we showed you Smashketball, which utilises the stage builder to establish boundaries of cannons and lave - if you hit an opponent into the right barrel...

Official Japanese Website for The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D Is Updated With Lots of Lovely Things

A handsome map, videos and loads of screens

Last week we saw the launch of Nintendo of America's official website for The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D, which is a rather nice collections of screens, facts and fancy web effects. We're starting to think that it's being outdone by the official Japanese site, though, which is that little big...

RCMADIAX Confirms European Release Line-Up for the First Half of 2015

Playing catch-up

Earlier today we revealed that ZeNfa Productions is going to make its Wii U eShop début in Europe with ZaciSa: Defense of the Crayon!, an expanded and improved version of ZaciSa's Last Stand. There are a number of developers that released their first games on the Wii U eShop in 2014 - utilising the Nintendo Web Framework - through...

​Star Wars Landspeeder Breaks Cover In Disney Infinity 2.0

The Force is strong in this one

While many are assuming it's a foregone conclusion that this year's Disney Infinity update will introduce the Star Wars franchise, there are actually many other directions Disney could take. However, for the time being at least it looks as if Disney is going to take the predicted - and perhaps desired - route. More...

Petit Computer Getting Programmed Out of the 3DS eShop on 31st January

Making way for a new generation of BASIC

Petit Computer is one of the most intriguing apps on the DSi Shop / 3DS eShop, as it allows users to utilise the BASIC code-base to create small games on the DSi hardware or - courtesy of backward compatibility - the 3DS. A 3DS eShop version is on the way, however, which hit Japan - with the name SmileBASIC...

Starr Mazer Crosses Point-And-Click With 2D Shooting, And Could Be 3DS-Bound

"A new game experience, not two games in one"

You may have noticed that our coverage of Kickstarter projects has cooled over the past few months, largely because so many came with dubious Nintendo-related stretch goals that they had no dream of ever reaching. We've become a bit more selective about what crowd-funded projects we cover these days, but...

The Legend Of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Soundtrack Added To European Club Nintendo

Club Nintendo isn't dead yet!

Following the announcement last week that Club Nintendo is scheduled to close its doors this coming September - to be replaced by a new loyalty scheme altogether - many avid Nintendo collectors assumed this also spelled the end of updates to the rewards catalogue too. However, that does not appear to be the case...

ZaciSa: Defense of the Crayon Dimension! Heading to the Wii U eShop in Europe 

Extra content will be a patched to ZaciSa's Last Stand in North America

2014 brought a host of first-time developers to the Wii U eShop, particularly through the Nintendo Web Framework. This has often only been the case in North America - however - with a number of these projects not being localised to Europe, in all likelihood due to costs related...

Nintendo Download: 29th January (Europe)

29th January (Europe)

Metroid Prime Trilogy, Gunman Clive 2, Classic GBA Castlevania and more

It's Monday again, but this week's Nintendo Download Update for Europe has certainly put a spring in our step. Arguably one of the greatest gaming trilogies is available at a ridiculous introductory price, while we have more treats including a top notch Game Boy Advance...

Weirdness: Even Masahiro Sakurai Struggles to Get the amiibo He Wants

Even Masahiro Sakurai Struggles to Get the amiibo He Wants

Master Hand is left empty handed

As you may be aware at this point, Nintendo has been doing a relatively below-par job of keeping amiibo supply up with the voracious demand. Whether this is an intentional ploy to drive the demand through the stratosphere or just a simple, recurring failure to accurately predict the sheer volume that the masses...

Review: uWordsmith (Wii U eShop)

uWordsmith (Wii U eShop)

Limited lexicon

Word games are rather less common these days than in their most prolific period, but if you're going to build one the Wii U seems like prime real estate for doing so. uWordsmith takes advantage of the GamePad to create a simple yet snappy style of wordplay, but some setbacks make it less than letter perfect. Three modes exist in the...

Sonic Boom Writer Jokes About Knuckles Infinite Jump Glitch Being Canon, Fan Video Makes It So

Update: Yep, writer's joke and fan's video, we get it now

Update: We saw some tweets around a video that we thought was a clip from the Sonic Boom cartoon, but is actually a funny fan creation. To clarify (thanks to all that pointed this out), show writer Alan Denton tweeted a joke about Sonic Boom making this famous glitch canon, and a funny fan...

Poll: Nintendo's Year of Multiplayer Gaming on Wii U and 3DS Aims to Bring Us Together Online and At Home

Nintendo's Year of Multiplayer Gaming on Wii U and 3DS Aims to Bring Us Together Online and At Home

Which multiplayer games are you most excited about?

With 2015 now settling into a groove - and following Nintendo's first Direct broadcasts of the year - we now have a better idea of what to expect in the near future, along with further reassurances of big hitters to come later in 2015. As a result there's plenty for Nintendo fans to look forward...

Nintendo Shows Off Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate's Story and Fan Reactions

Is the hype monstrous yet?

In terms of big days for the 3DS, we're not sure it's ever had a date quite like 13th February this year. That day will see new hardware with the New Nintendo 3DS, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D and, last but certainly not least, Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. We hope that Capcom's latest monster slaying adventure won't...

Key WayForward Director is Bringing His Solo Project to Wii U

Risky move?

It's not uncommon for creative minds at studios to strike out on their own. With limited budgets and resources, companies are sometimes hesitant to take big risks on games that don't necessarily sound like a profitable idea. If the developer really believes that the game is special, he or she may take a chance and shoulder the...

News: Best Buy Cancellations of Majora's Mask 3D New Nintendo 3DS Bundles Affects More Customers

Best Buy Cancellations of Majora's Mask 3D New Nintendo 3DS Bundles Affects More Customers

No longer just those that ordered multiple units

Just recently we reported that Best Buy was cancelling duplicate orders for the Majora's Mask 3D New Nintendo 3DS bundle; after seeing eBay flooded with pre-orders for sale of the highly anticipated hardware, it could arguably have been considered a positive move. On the downside, however, those in...
