Little Inferno Aiming to Light Its Wii U Fire on Launch Day

Get those eShop cards ready

Little Inferno is quite possibly one of the most fascinating upcoming Wii U eShop titles, as it's from the creators of WiiWare classic World of Goo as well as Henry Hatsworth in The Puzzling Adventure on DS. It's also interesting because all we've seen is teaser footage, so we're yet to find out how the actual game plays...

Wii U and 3DS Pre-Paid eShop Cards Spotted

DSiWare and WiiWare left out of the party

The arrival of the 3DS eShop saw Nintendo move away from Nintendo Points, the custom currency that, in the opinion of some, was far from ideal. The 3DS eShop has continued to evolve and now allows top-ups of a download's value, for example, so the days of buying a block of 1000 points when you only need 100...

The Denpa Men: They Came By Wave (3DS eShop)


When we first started hearing the news about Denpa Ningen no RPG coming to the West, we didn't know what to expect. Its visual debt to Nintendo's Miis and Pikmin intrigued us, and the fact that the brains behind this game had their fingers in Pokémon Colosseum and great series such as Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy and Ogre Battle meant...

Denpa men, a Game Boy classic and some Real Bout Newcomers

After the confirmation of Europe's somewhat disappointing selection of Nintendo Download titles, you might be forgiven for expecting the North American update to be similarly lackluster. However, Nintendo has pulled out all the stops to deliver a varied selection of titles - the details of...

Frozenbyte: "The Wii U eShop  is Very Promising"

Affordable updates and certification on the wish list

Of all we've heard and seen of Wii U, the eShop remains the biggest mystery. We may have an idea of some of the launch window titles, but we know little of what it'll look like or what additional content it'll feature, beyond games. We do know of Nintendo learning from some past mistakes,...

Quarth is Blasting Onto the 3DS Virtual Console Soon

Think of it as Tetris X Space Invaders

This time around it's Quarth,...

Gotta catch the beats

There are a good numbers of gamers in the West that love Japanese culture and look on with envy at some of the creative, and occasionally wacky, delights that are released in Nintendo's homeland.

First Impressions: Toki Tori 2

Toki Tori 2

The bird's still got it

Toki Tori 2 was one of the first eShop titles confirmed for Wii U, showing that developer Two Tribes is more than happy to take another early plunge on Nintendo's download platform. It seems only right, too, as the developer's first ever release was Toki Tori on Game Boy Color, before a new version of that game had a start...

Slowly but surely, Teyon is on its way towards a half-way decent entry in its Heavy Fire series of military pop shooters.

Rising Board 3D (3DS eShop)

All that glitters is not gold

The endless runner craze isn't about to end any time soon, and that's understandable. The genre offers an experience that is both suited to quick play sessions and unique every time you boot it up. The DSiWare service even received a rough equivalent in I Must Run!, and now the eShop has Rising Board 3D, an endless...
