Less sales yet increased profits highlight extensive streamlining

Nintendo Decides That Valentine's Day is Friendship Day

Steamy

Valentine's Day is now less than a week away, which means that a sudden inflation of prices for cards, chocolates and flowers is well underway.

Rumour: A Planned 2.5D Metroid Title For 3DS Got Cancelled in 2012

A Planned 2.5D Metroid Title For 3DS Got Cancelled in 2012

Samus just can’t catch a break

Metroid is a series long overdue for a sequel. Regaining relevance after the excellent Metroid Prime series by Retro Studios, it seemed like the franchise was here to stay. Unfortunately, after the highly polarizing Metroid: Other M in 2010, Nintendo's been pretty frosty towards the series and has been hesitant to...

Review: Mega Man Zero 2 (Wii U eShop / Game Boy Advance)

Mega Man Zero 2 (Wii U eShop / Game Boy Advance)

Zero times two

Just one year after Mega Man Zero, Inti Creates released a sequel for the Game Boy Advance spin-off. That might sound a bit quick, but Mega Man Zero 2 is no mindless cash-in. It took the sturdy foundation set by its predecessor and built upon it in impressive ways, while also smoothing out the rough edges. On top of that it wove an...

Which Nintendo Franchises Should be Produced as TV Shows?

Some silly suggestions may be included

Our first reaction when we heard that Nintendo and Netflix are apparently exploring a live-action TV series for The Legend of Zelda was "yeah, sure they are, what a crazy rumour!". Yet then we saw that it was an article on the respectable Wall Street Journal which, frankly, has little reason or likelihood to...

Eiji Aonuma Launches a Majora's Mask 3D Art Academy Contest on Miiverse

May have had a PA write the post, we'll never know

We're well aware that a good number of the Nintendo Life community are rather talented artists, or perhaps enjoy looking at others' masterpieces, so it's worth noting that one of the best Art Academy: SketchPad contests to date is underway.

Review: Citizens of Earth (3DS eShop)

Citizens of Earth (3DS eShop)

You've got the whole world in your hands

Men like our beloved Vice-President of Earth are truly one of a kind. Maybe it's the shocking red hair, the gleaming white smile, or the fact that his suit looks freshly pressed even after taking a full night's sleep in it. We can't put our finger on it, but something about him just...makes him seem...

Splatoon Development Updates Show Off Perks, Weapons and Quirky Shop Clerks

The ink missile certainly looks deadly

Arriving in May, Splatoon is certainly set to be a vital release for the Wii U before the summer season - Nintendo doesn't release many third-person shooters with a territorial twist. Its brand of chaotic but fun online multiplayer - with local and single player also included - will also try to make the most of...

Nintendo Picks Up Three Gongs at the D.I.C.E. Awards

A double for Super Smash Bros.

Nintendo's excellent releases in 2014 earned it - and partners releasing exclusives such as Bayonetta 2 - a host of notable nominations and awards.
