Take Another Look at Ganondorf and Adventure Mode In Hyrule Warriors

Ganondorf's a bit of a smirker

Koei Tecmo and Nintendo are gradually moving beyond the stage of near-constant reveals for Hyrule Warriors, and on to slightly more reserved pre-launch hype. In a notable change to various sections on the official website there are no longer any "Coming Soon" boxes to tease us, but in their place final pre-launch...

Capcom Releases Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies on iOS, at a Lower Price

OBJECTION!

3DS download gamers have seen a few high-profile titles make the transition to smart device platforms — iOS and Android — over the years, an example being Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy. That release from Square Enix actually turned out to be fairly pricey for those wanting every bit of content on a smart device, making those with the 3DS...

This Game Boy Stage in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Is All Retro Charm

A fitting tribute

It's almost hard to believe due to the extravagant length of its hype period, but Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS is less than two months away. It's so close we can almost see our Circle Pad / D-pad wearing out from all those extended fight sessions. In any case, Masahiro Sakurai has been particularly attentive to the portable...

More Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Story and Setting Details Emerge

Where elite hunters lead, we follow

While gleefully carving a kill or cracking open the post-hunt box, it's easy to forget about the human element of the Monster Hunter series. At its heart Monster Hunter is about people — people who hunt monsters a lot, some of whom get exceptionally good at it. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate's story will follow one...

Nintendo's Wild Gunman And Sega's Bank Panic Face Off In A Deadly Shootout

Which one is the quickest on the draw?

Back in the '80s, it wasn't uncommon to see Sega and Nintendo launch games with similar themes in order to compete with one another, and a good example of this rivalry is the similarity between the NES light gun title Wild Gunman and the Sega Master System outing Bank Panic. Both had their origins in the...

Cyber Gadget Unveils Gigantic Joystick Peripheral for 3DS XL

Is your D-pad not measuring up?

There have been all manner of unusual peripherals on Nintendo consoles. The Hyper Boy is the first that springs to mind, but the 3DS hasn't had as much attention lavished on it from the realm of the peculiar and cumbersome – until now. Introducing the Cyber Arcade Stick for the 3DS XL – an enormous grip for the...

Cult Classic Plok Transcends from Video Game to eBook

Beyond the pixel'd realm

Those who are well-versed in their SNES heritage should be aware of a sadly overlooked game from 1993 or 1994, depending where you were at the time. The name of the game in question is Plok - a platforming game where the titular character can remove and launch his limbs wherever he pleases in a style that's thankfully more...

Wii U Owners Finally Get The Nuketown 2025 Map For Call Of Duty: Black Ops II

Better late than never?

Call of Duty: Black Ops II is old news to most gamers now — it was a launch title for Nintendo's current home console back in 2012 — but Activision has only just gotten around to granting Wii U owners access to the fan-favourite Nuketown 2025 multiplayer map. The map has been available on other systems for ages, and many...

August Is Officially Princess Peach Month, According To Nintendo Of America

Roll it out for royality

Update: Well, who knew? As has helpfully been pointed out to us, it's actually National Peach Month — as in the fruit — and Nintendo appears to be jumping on the bandwagon with this announcement. Original story: Nintendo sure loves its themed time periods — who could forget the Year of Luigi — and now the company...

Who's up for a quick history lesson? While Donkey Kong is purely Nintendo's furry, banana-breathed baby, the company originally granted Coleco rights to produce console and tabletop versions of the hit arcade game. Coleco bundled Donkey Kong with their new ColecoVision in 1982, then ported...

Mario, Luigi, and Sonic Are Advertising A Chinese Mobile Phone Network

Honest truth, guv

There's something just a little bit wrong in China Mobile's advertising, pictured above. Apparently Mario, Luigi and Sonic have all been conscripted into the firm's latest promotion. Nintendo hasn't exactly made a habit of freely giving out its characters for other companies to use, being so protective as to initiate YouTube...

Shapes of Gray is Aiming to Bring Less Colour to the Wii U eShop

Has apparently been described as "“the WarioWare of Dark Souls"

Review: SHUT THE BOX (Wii U eShop)

SHUT THE BOX (Wii U eShop)

What's in the box?!

It's strange how little a concept matters as long as the execution is done well; just recently we criticised Dahku Creations' Soon Shine for playing too much like a mobile game rather than a home console title. Yet here we are with SHUT THE BOX (which seems like it's yelling at you), created by one-man studio RCMADIAX of BLOK...
