Two CDs on one 64MB cartridge? Madness!
The Resident Evil series may be most closely associated with Sony hardware, but it's important to remember that it has been a platform agnostic franchise since the first entry, which, lest we forget, also made it onto the Sega Saturn. Since then, we've seen notable Nintendo instalments such as Resident Evil 4,...
Let's hope Soulja Boy doesn't find out
We reviewed the original BittBoy some time ago and found it to be a perfectly likeable – if legally questionable – handheld system. Now, the company behind it is releasing a successor, and while it retains the same basic design, there are a few extra features worth noting (and no, it's no less dubious from...
Join the hunt next year
Phoenix Labs confirmed last night at The Game Awards 2018 that it is bringing its free-to-play online action RPG Dauntless to Switch next year. Inspired by the likes of Monster Hunter, Dark Souls and World of Warcraft, Dauntless sees players assuming the role of 'Slayers' who are tasked with hunting and killing monsters...
Hopefully not a joke
The news that Persona 5's Joker is headed to Smash Bros. Ultimate as a DLC character has naturally sparked predictable chatter that Persona 5 itself is Switch-bound, but we've actually heard a rumour that appears to have some substance to it. The source is MysticDistance, a translator and secondary writer fo
And there's the chance it could come to Switch
While Nintendo's Fire Emblem series is world famous, Masaya's Langrisser franchise (you might know it better as Warsong, the western name given to the original Mega Drive / Genesis game) is less well known; its origins line in a series of turn-based strategy titles on the PC Engine, and during the early...
Soulja Boy tells ’em (to buy these trash machines)
We pride ourselves on only listening to music recorded before 1999 here at Nintendo Life, so prior to being chained to a desk and forced to write this story, we had absolutely no idea who Soulja Boy was, what songs he'd done or why he's such a big deal. A few minutes of slack-jawed research later,...
The Wii, eh? What a machine. Not only did it introduce the world to the wonders of motion control, it also played host to some truly stunning games, such as Super Mario Galaxy, Metroid Prime 3, Mario Kart Wii, Zelda: Twilight Princess and many more besides. However, it was also the console tha
16-bit or 32-bit?
Nintendo wasn't the first company to wake up to the idea of repackaging its games in tiny versions of classic consoles – Sega and Atari (from a licencing perspective, at least) were there a long, long time ago – but its entry into this previously niche sector certainly made an impact. The NES Classic Edition and SNES Classic...
GBros. before Smash Pros
As the launch fo Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on Switch looms – like a wonderful, long-awaited birthday – ever closer, a great many fans of the series will have one burning question on their minds: Can I play it with my trusty and dependable GameCube controller? As we've known for a while, the answer to this question is,...
"I'm starting to think this situation is beyond repair"
The saga of Paprium – the next game from Pier Solar developer WaterMelon – rolls ever onwards. Earlier this year we spoke to one of the game's artists about the stop-st
Troubled over which version to pick? We're here to help...
The 'classic console' market is getting pretty busy right now, what with the NES Classic, SNES Classic and PlayStation Classic sure to keep the tills ticking over this Christmas, and the
Sonic! Golden Axe! Phantasy Star! Streets of Rage!
The Sega Mega Drive (or Genesis, if you're in North America) is a console that needs no introduction, even on a site devoted to Nintendo. During the early '90s, Sega and Nintendo were mortal enemies and their respective 16-bit systems were locked in an epic struggle which has since gone down as one...
20 games to mark 20 years
The Sega Dreamcast turns 20 today – it launched on November 27th, 1998 in Japan – and if you, like us, grew up with this remarkable machine, this particular anniversary will make you feel very old indeed. While many retro systems feel like relics, Sega's console somehow still feels like the future, even after all this...
"This time maybe I will know what the buttons do"
The recent news that one of the UK's most well-known gaming celebrities had returned from the wild to begin a new YouTube channel caused quite a stir recently, but not just for nostalgic reasons. Dave "The Games Animal" Perry might not be famous outside of the British Isles (and even then, Brits...
Welcome to the Playground
Following its success on mobile devices and the PlayStation 4, Aquiris Game Studio is bringing its retro-style racing game Horizon Chase to Switch and Xbox One, promising many hours of Out Run-style action. However, this isn't a straight port of the PS4 edition; these new versions of Horizon Chase Turbo will come with an...
The best wireless option for Sega fans
If you're a keen follower of the modern-day retro gaming scene then you'll no doubt have heard of Igor Golubovskiy, better known as Krikzz. Over the past few years, Krikzz has built up a solid reputation thanks to his superb line of flash cartridges which cunningly allow you to play ROMs on vintage hardware...
Now with motion control and vibration!
With the likes of the SN30 and SN30 Pro - as well as DIY kits - 8BitDo is responsible for some of the best third-party controller options for Nintendo fans, and this year has updated its wildly popular
Like, never ever
As we've already covered, the only way to get the legendary Pokémon Mew in Pokémon: Let’s Go is to buy the Poké Ball Plus device (brand new, we should add) and transfer the 'mon contained within. It's important to remember that this is very much a one-time deal; o
Edit: Actually it won't
Edit: We've now been told by our Pokémon expert Joe Merrick that reports that this special Tamagotchi will feature an exclusive new evolution are actually incorrect: Original Story: Not so long ago, we reported on rumours that the unthinkable was about to happen - two '90s icons, Pokémon and Tamagotchi, were joining...
"But don't expect an anthropomorphic squirrel"
Former Rare staffer Chris Seavor is someone that Nintendo Life fans should hopefully be pretty familiar with; not only was he the creative force behind the seminal N64 title Conker's Bad Fur Day, but - along with fellow Rare alumni Shawn Pile at Gory Detail - he's also spent the past few years working...
While the Switch's hybrid nature and versatile Joy-Con controllers are key selling points for many owners, for a special sub-set of players the console's real hidden weapon is the fact that it can be used in portrait mode and therefore provide the perfect platform for classic vertically-scrolling shooters – of which there are plenty...
Connect 'em all
One of the most notable elements of Pokémon: Let's Go on Switch is the fact that it offers connectivity with Pokémon GO, the smartphone title has is played by millions upon millions of people every day. However, getting the two games to connect with one another is proving to be something of a sticking point for some players. Three...
What's in the box, 'mon?
Pokémon: Let's Go launched yesterday, and we were lucky enough to get our grubby hands on a special Eevee version Switch bundle. Naturally, we decided that an unboxing video was called for, so here we are. Enjoy.
Old school talent
Red is a character who surely needs no introduction to Pokémon fans. Red was a character from the very first Game Boy entries, and has become something of an icon for veteran players. Red appears in Pokémon: Let's Go, but is only found in one location: Indigo Plateau. Don't expect Red to simply appear, though - he will only...
