Labo launched last week in Japan and North America, meaning that loads of cardboard pianos, fishing rods and robots are now out in the wild.

More news coming this year

"So anybody who would buy that, please clap..."
The Wonderful 101 was one of the Wii U's most unique and enjoyable exclusives, but the commercial failure of the console meant it didn't reach as many people as it should have done.

Motion aiming, touch controls and split screen shown in new footage
Everything is "Battle Royale this" and Battle Royale that" these days. It's enough to get even the most ardent Nintendo fan down, purely because the Switch is the only console which doesn't have a Battle Royale game at present. That's not likely to be the case for much longer as...

Labo launches today in North America, and it's heartening to know that once kits are in the hands of players all over the nation (Europe has to wait until next week, sadly), we don't need to worry about broken parts - because Nintendo has kindly put a load of replacement items on its North American web store. With prices ranging...
Warning: Some Game Boys were harmed in the making of this video

More competition for Nintendo's micro-consoles?
SNK has announced today that it will be jumping on the "Classic Edition" bandwagon with its own new system, which will come pre-loaded with beloved Neo Geo titles.

Who's the champ out of Hisashi Nogami and Kosuke Yabuki?
Nintendo recently asked a very important question - can Splatoon and Splatoon 2 producer Hisashi Nogami best the one and only Kosuke Yabuki - producer of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and ARMS - at his own games? We won't spoil it for you, but it's easy to see why
And it's apparently codenamed "Project Beluga"
Pokémon on Switch is sure to be one of Nintendo's biggest releases in quite some time, but the company is keeping its cards close to its chest at present; we've had little hints of what's to come - such as the game apparently marking the debut of Generation Eight - but solid intel hasn't been...
Don't feel blue
Mega Man fans sure have their plates full this year, as Capcom is releasing not one but two retro collections of classic titles - and both are Switch-bound.

To be this good...
Sega's confirmation that it is bringing its classic games to Switch as part of the AGES range was pretty incredible, if only for the sheer potential of such a move; Nintendo's erstwhile rival may be a very different company to the one that launched the Mega Drive, Saturn and Dreamcast these days, but it sits on an astonishing...

"You may see that game again"
Given its long and proud history, it goes without saying that Nintendo is sitting atop a mighty goldmine of IP, much of which lies dormant at the present moment in time. One such sleeping series is Wave Race, which began life on the Game Boy back in 1992; it might not be one of the most popular franchises Nintendo...
"Forgive me… I am impure"
Bandai Namco has revealed that Dark Souls: Remastered on Switch has been delayed until the summer, along with the special Solaire amiibo.
