It's Monday, which normally means Nintendo Download news for Europe and Super Smash Bros. screens at which to gawk.

Nintendo's bespoke Miiverse social network — on Wii U, 3DS, web browsers and with future plans for smart devices — has evolved a fair bit since its début with the Wii U launch in November 2012. As it's a web-based service it can be easily updated without down time or the need for gamers to download updates; as a result...

Cute Nintendog! Little Mac! Home-Run Bat! More!

Super Smash Bros. made another Nintendo Direct appearance last week, with 2014 again emphasized as the release window, to remind us that the iconic series isn't far away from a Wii U and 3DS return. We're a little later than normal with the summary this time, but Masahiro Sakurai continues to use the...

In January Eiji Aonuma, the producer of the Legend of Zelda series, launched a drawing event on Miiverse to bring the respective communities of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and Art Academy: SketchPad together.

Out of the park

Masahiro Sakurai doesn't often reveal new challengers or arenas in his daily posts on the Miiverse Director's Room for the new Super Smash Bros. entries on Wii U and 3DS, but he does often show-off individual moves, mechanics and items. Today may not send shock waves around the world, but could be a fan-favourite. As you can see...

Lucario again! Palkia! Mother Brain! More!

Super Smash Bros. keeps creeping closer — thanks to the inevitable passing of time — and we can anticipate the anarchic fun that awaits at home on Wii U and, pleasingly, on our travels with those funky 3DS visuals.

Mother Brain Revealed As An Enormous Super Smash Bros. Assist Trophy

Mother NO!

If Samus in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. is ultimately going to be heavily influenced by the design from Metroid: Other M, then perhaps she'll be less the silent and deadly hunter from the Metroid Prime Trilogy and more prone to flashbacks, fearing the past and generally being full of angst. The latest assist trophy may, then, send our...

Miiverse Gets a Minor Update for Wii U

Buttons now do different things!

Updates to the Wii U and 3DS are a far cry from the days of the Wii and DS, when system updates were comparatively rare and tweaks and improvements to individual apps clearly weren't high on Nintendo's list of priorities. Nowadays the 3DS has frequent system updates — many of which boost "system stability" to...

Here's a pleasing thought. Super Smash Bros. is now a day closer than it was yesterday, and when you wake up tomorrow it'll be closer again. We may not have a release date, but we can be confident of that, which is something — right? Masahiro Sakurai, via the Super Smash Bros. Director's Room,...

If you have the skills, this stuff matters

While Masahiro Sakurai's daily Miiverse posts are entertaining in their own right, in recent weeks he's been revealing more tid-bits of info on features and fighting mechanics in the new Super Smash Bros. titles. While not wholly revealing in themselves, they're gradually painting a picture of a development...

Also teases a new 3DS stage

Last summer Masahiro Sakurai stated that there'd be no cinematic story in the new Super Smash Bros. titles coming to the Wii U and 3DS. The reasoning was a little peculiar, as Sakurai-san said the following. Unfortunately, the movie scenes we worked hard to create were uploaded onto the internet. You can only truly wow...
