Next Level Games Employee Suggests He's Working on a Wii U Title, Then Stealth Edits the Post

You cannot hide on the internet

It's no secret that Next Level Games, though it's an independent company, is currently committed exclusively to Nintendo projects - that was stated in early 2014, and nothing since has suggested any change. We'd like to think it's an ambitious project, too, as little has been heard from the company since Luigi's...

A Cowboy's Tale from Nexis Games Rides to the Wii U eShop in 2016

We added the apostrophe

When one gets right down to it, there aren't a lot of notable Wild West-themed games currently, on any platform; it's a rather puzzling omission. In an industry that's absolutely obsessed at the moment with open world adventure games, one must wonder why more developers don't follow in the footsteps of titles such as Red Dead...

Nintendo of America Store Offering Refurbished Super Mario 3D World Wii U Bundle at a Handsome Price

Mario Kart 8 for $33, too

Full Details Emerge on Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker Launch Edition

Quite the package

It's been relatively under the radar, but Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker, arguably one of the most long winded names of any game to be released in North America in recent memory, is due for a release on the Nintendo 3DS rather soon. Initially pinned down for quarter one this year, the anticipated RPG has been...

Rumour: South African Retailer Lists Greninja, Jigglypuff and Splatoon amiibo for May Release

South African Retailer Lists Greninja, Jigglypuff and Splatoon amiibo for May Release

Prepare a bucket of salt

It's pretty obvious that Nintendo's keen to make the most of amiibo, through including NFC support in the New Nintendo 3DS and lining up a host of figures for future arrivals in stores. With that in mind a rumour started by a South African retailer listing is plausible, albeit we urge caution due to the somewhat random...

Nintendo Confirms Wil Wheaton as Voice Actor for Abraham Lincoln in Code Name S.T.E.A.M.

From Ensign to President

Nintendo doesn't often hire celebrities to be voice actors in its games - in fact, fully voiced dialogue simply isn't particularly common in the big N's titles. Kid Icarus: Uprising was a recent exception, along with the likes of Metroid: Other M, but we're normally just treated to occasional catch phrases and gibberish...
