Wii U to Launch in White, Black Available "Later"

All white on the night

We saw a whole lot of the black Wii U console during yesterday's E3 conference, but according to a Nintendo representative the dark shade might not be available at launch.

Nintendo's confirmed it's working on a system to transfer Wii save data, WiiWare and Virtual Console purchases from your Wii console to the new Wii U.

E3 2012: Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Stands Alone on Wii U

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Stands Alone on Wii U

Waiting for a new challenger

When 3DS was announced, it seemed like publishers rushed to announce their fighting games for the system, but Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is something of a lone wolf on Wii U. While Warner Bros.' Injustice: Gods Among Us takes a serious look at DC Comics characters, TTT2 went a bit tongue-in-cheek with its trailer, showing...

LEGO City Undercover Exposed

Mystery solved

Last year's LEGO City Stories is now LEGO City Undercover, and judging from the first gameplay trailer below it could be quite special. The open world genre might be the preserve of the more adult titles these days, but LEGO City Undercover keeps things distinctly family-friendly by having you solve crimes instead of committing them...

SiNG is Nintendo's All-Singing, All-Dancing Wii U Game

So it might be good

Wii was heaven for people who like singing and dancing games, and it looks like Nintendo wants to keep that trend rolling with SiNG (temporary title) on Wii U. Developed by FreeStyleGames (the DJ Hero people) it's a cross between karaoke and dancing. The Wii U GamePad displays lyrics during karaoke, and can be used as an audio...

Paper Mario: Sticker Star Shots and Details

Sticker round

After a long wait, Nintendo finally brought Paper Mario: Sticker Star out of the cupboard and slapped a holiday release date on the box. Mario's thin adventure has a sticky addition with — predictably — stickers, which can be used both in and out of battle. Intelligent Systems — surely having a busy time with Game & Wario in...

3DS Downloads on the Way

Plenty for all tastes

Nintendo has unveiled a list of upcoming download titles on the 3DS eShop with some release periods for us to take in. There aren't any specific dates, but we at least have an idea of when we can expect the titles to arrive. These are all North American details, but we'll optimistically hope that PAL region releases won't be...

Iwata Asks Eguchi About Wii U

The ideals of Wii U

Satoru Iwata has conducted another of his famous Iwata Asks interviews. The lucky guy on the receiving end of the questions this time is one Katsuya Eguchi, the general software producer of Wii U. Eguchi is perhaps best known as the creator of Animal Crossing and the producer of Wii Sports. During the 18 minute chat, Eguchi...

E3 2012: Pikmin 3 Wii U Trailer is Plucky

Pikmin 3 Wii U Trailer is Plucky

But one-player only

We finally saw Pikmin 3 today, and now you can relive that moment below. Shigeru Miyamoto's garden simulator comes to HD for the first time with four new leaders, but sadly it's only a single-player experience, a missed opportunity considering the potential for co-operative play. Still, after years of waiting, at least we have...

New Super Mario Bros. 2 Trailer Goes for Gold

Believe in your soul

New Super Mario Bros. 2 was one of just three 3DS games shown off during Nintendo's E3 conference, but the publisher clearly hopes it'll set a new gold standard as the precious metal is all over the place.
