Avert Your Eyes, This Japanese Animal Crossing Commercial Features Shameful Groping

Poor Tom Nook

Nintendo is pretty unique in the video game industry because unlike Sony and Microsoft, it actually spends money reminding people that some of its evergreen hits are still on sale.

Nintendo Gets Tough With Miiverse Bans, and Some Users Aren't Exactly Pleased

Rules aren't always there to be broken

Miiverse, Nintendo's bespoke social network, has been one of the company's most notable moves in this generation.

Reggie Fils-Aime Tackles Metroid Prime: Federation Force and amiibo Criticism

"Look, we know that the fans want a straight Samus Aran game"

Reggie Fils-Aime has - as we observed during E3 - the propensity to talk a load of old PR guff at times, which to be fair is part of his job. His annual LA interviews conducted with Kotaku do occasionally get beyond copy-and-pasted standard responses, however, making the latest...

A crossover aiming for the funny bone

The world has seen its fair share of monumental crossovers: DC vs. Marvel, Jetsons meets the Flintstones.
