This week's Days of Our Tomodachi Lives episode is a little bit later than usual, but we can assure you that it is well worth the wait.

Masahiro Sakurai Shows Off Touch Screen Usage in Super Smash Bros. on 3DS

Steady those expectations...

Super Smash Bros. for 3DS is a game in a slightly odd position. It's due this 'Summer', yet is being consistently overshadowed by its Wii U brethren; the latter has its own E3 Invitational and is still getting a lot more coverage of Masahiro Sakurai's Super Smash Bros. Director's Room. Fear not, 3DS fans, as Sakurai-san...

A Week of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS Screens - Issue Thirty Nine

Assist Trophy Capsule! Mirrored characters! Ike! More!

E3 creeps ever closer, which should mean more information on Super Smash Bros. isn't far away. The past week was actually fairly eventful for the titles, however, with loose comments from Nintendo's French division suggesting that the Wii U version will utilise the NFC Figurine Platform, with...

Nintendo Confirms New 'Sea Green' 2DS Model

Arriving alongside Tomodachi Life

With Tomodachi Life arriving in Europe and North America on 6th June, Nintendo has been pushing some fairly heavy marketing for the title.

Candy Match 3 (3DS)

How many licks does it take to get to the centre of this game? One.

Start Candy Match 3 up and its cheery-looking title screen greets you with… complete silence. Your ears may pick up nothing, but your soul should be hearing the dire warning screeched out by the very void: abandon all hopes of creative or original effort, ye who enter here!...
