Search options! Verified User stalking! Activity Feed screenshots!

Miiverse, the Nintendo social network where we can post doodles, screens and general thoughts on all things Nintendo, has today been updated for both Wii U and 3DS. As Nintendo had the foresight to make it a web-based platform rather than an app, in the typical sense, it means the...

Lumiose City! Fat Mac! Din's Fire! More things!

It's Monday, which means it's time for our Super Smash Bros. summary from last week. There are some good'uns, too. Masahiro Sakurai produced one post that we though worthy of its own article due to the size of the reveal, and that was Lumiose City as a playable stage; that was particularly exciting...

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...

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.

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...

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...
