Yarn Yoshi Is Just Too Darn Cute

Nintendo turns the 'cuteness' up to 11

During Nintendo's latest Nintendo Direct it emerged that we won't be able to visit Yoshi's Woolly World until at least June in Europe and a vague 'Fall' in North America.

Some short videos are even inked in

Arriving in May, Splatoon is one of our most-anticipated Wii U games in the coming months, even if we're still awaiting a final release date - with single player, local multiplayer and online multiplayer all included, it should offer plenty of content along with its quirky approach to third-person arena shooting...

Mega Man: The Board Game Gets Closer to Reality

Finalising content with Capcom

We've covered Mega Man: The Board Game a fair amount, from its origins on Kickstarter to tentative updates as Jasco Games has worked towards making the final product a reality. As a relatively complicated game with plenty of text and miniatures to produce, it's clearly been a challenging project. A major part of that...

'Interesting' character customisations, New LA, landscapes and a cat

The ink missile certainly looks deadly

Arriving in May, Splatoon is certainly set to be a vital release for the Wii U before the summer season - Nintendo doesn't release many third-person shooters with a territorial twist. Its brand of chaotic but fun online multiplayer - with local and single player also included - will also try to make the most of...

Feast Your Eyes on the Super Mario and Super Smash Bros. Wave 4 amiibo

Bank balances, beware

In the first Nintendo Direct broadcasts of 2015 the amiibo brand played its part, with new figures announced to keep the action going in both Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS, and a fresh range to make an impact in Mario Party 10.

Enjoy a Cuteness Overload in These Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Screens

D'awwwwwww

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker could quite possibly be the most adorable game played on Wii U systems this Festive season — unless you're in Europe and it's a New Year treat. Last week cleared up release dates and, we shouldn't forget, revealed Toadette as a playable character, tipping this one over the safe levels of cuteness. It is...

Earlier today Nintendo confirmed release dates and details for amiibo figures, with the pleasing announcement of a 'second wave' of six toys that will arrive in December — they're confirmed for the 19th of that month in Europe and are yet to be pinned down in North America.

Nintendo's lining up multiple blockbuster releases for the Holiday season, but the most important will likely be its range of NFC toys — amiibo.
