Nintendo Life Weekly: Nintendo NX Processor May Be Supplied by AMD

Nintendo NX Processor May Be Supplied by AMD

Saturdays of thunder

It can be tough to keep up with all the Nintendo happenings that occur in a week, and we at Nintendo Life understand that. That's why we've once again combined all the biggest news, reviews, and releases from the previous seven days into one easy-to-watch video. This week we take a look at the rumours surrounding AMD providing...

Review: G.G Series RUN & STRIKE (DSiWare)

G.G Series RUN & STRIKE (DSiWare)

Double fault

The next entry in the G.G series opts to branch out a bit and little something in the sports genre. While this works relatively well initially, the novelty of the gameplay soon wears off and it quickly becomes rather boring. G.G Series RUN & STRIKE is a decent arcade game, but players looking for anything more will be sorely...

Review: Lord Of Magna: Maiden Heaven (3DS)

Lord Of Magna: Maiden Heaven (3DS)

Domestic Bliss

When Rune Factory developer Neverland sadly shut up shop in 2013, there was still one project left on the table - a brand new story-driven SRPG named Lord of Magna. It lay unfinished until Marvelous miraculously reassembled part of the original team to finish the game, and we're lucky they did; it's not perfect, but with fun battles,...

Review: Baila Latino (Wii U eShop)

Baila Latino (Wii U eShop)


The Wii was (and is) a wonderfully appealing console, enticing folk who'd never considered picking up a joypad into a quick round of Wii Sports or Mario Kart. The Wii was also the natural home (and origin) of the Just Dance series of games, which went on to sell in vast quantities. Waving a Wii-remote to a spot of Katy Perry on a Friday...

Review: G.G Series DRILLING ATTACK!! (DSiWare)


Rock solid

The next title to look at in the G.G series is yet another action platformer, but it manages to feel distinct from the others in more ways than one. Unlike every G.G game up to this point, G.G Series DRILLING ATTACK!! focuses less on being an arcade-focused game best suited for quick playthroughs, and more on being an experience that...

Review: LEGO Jurassic World (Wii U)

LEGO Jurassic World (Wii U)

Fun but lacking InGen-uity

A whole lot of chaos has ensued on the islands of Isla Sorna and Isla Nublar. Since 1993 we've seen two state-of-the-art theme parks abruptly go defunct and two rescue missions disastrously unfold on these isolated chunks of land. The crazy thing is, we relish in the spectacle that results from these unfortunate events...

Review: The Stonecutter (Wii U eShop)

The Stonecutter (Wii U eShop)

Cut the crap

Visual novels haven't historically made much of a splash outside of Japan. It's only been in relatively recent times that titles like Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney and Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward have shown Western gamers that reading can be fun - especially when mixed together with simple game elements like puzzles and branching...

Review: Star Fox Command (Wii U eShop / DS)

Star Fox Command (Wii U eShop / DS)

Command and conquer

Fox McCloud and friends are coming back in a big way this Holiday season with Star Fox Zero for the Wii U, and while the jury's still out on whether the title will live up to expectations, Nintendo has given fans a refresher course in barrel rolls by releasing Star Fox Command on the system's Virtual Console in North America...

Review: Quadcopter Pilot Challenge (Wii U eShop)

Quadcopter Pilot Challenge (Wii U eShop)

Controls failin', players wailin', quadcopter

A common complaint among Wii U critics is that the platform's primary controller, the GamePad, doesn't get utilized enough to justify its existence. Whether or not you agree with this assessment, one indie developer that's making an effort to assuage these concerns is TACS Games, whose Quadcopter Pilot...

Review: Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards (Wii U eShop / N64)

Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards (Wii U eShop / N64)

Kirby Sixty-Phwoar

Like many of Nintendo's properties during the transition from the SNES to the N64, Kirby underwent a shift from a flat 2D sprite to a fully rendered polygon rendition of himself. Rather than taking Kirby down the route of Mario and Link, however, the pink mascot stuck closer to his origins - the mechanics of Kirby 64: The Crystal...

Nintendo Life Weekly: Devil's Third Apparently Not Being Published by Nintendo in NA, SEGA Apologises to Fans

Devil's Third Apparently Not Being Published by Nintendo in NA, SEGA Apologises to Fans

A bucketload of goodness

Update: There's an update on Devil's Third right here, with Nintendo of America tweeting confirmation that it'll be sharing news on its released in the region soon. Original Article: A week is a long time on Nintendo Life, and due to the sheer volume of content it's easy to miss some super-important info. That's why we've...

Review: Mario & Luigi: Partners In Time (Wii U eShop / DS)

Mario & Luigi: Partners In Time (Wii U eShop / DS)

​Fun for all ages

It takes quite a lot of star power to be able to co-star with yourself in something. The upcoming Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam is set to show that our favourite plumbers are not lacking in this department, but it's not the first time developer AlphaDream has pulled a similar gimmick! For that we should look to Mario & Luigi:...

Review: Roving Rogue (Wii U eShop)

Roving Rogue (Wii U eShop)

Stark roving mad

So what exactly does an adventurer do after they beat the last boss? This is the question Padaone Games' Roving Rogue poses to its players, and it gives a pretty straightforward answer: they walk back to the first level, of course. Kurt the Righteous does just that in this light platforming adventure, which begins promisingly but...



The way of the ninja

The next game in the G.G series opts to return to the platformer genre yet again, and the end result is surprisingly engaging. G.G Series THE HIDDEN NINJA KAGEMARU is a unique arcade focused, 2D stealth platformer that manages to put forth a distinct and compelling gameplay system that'll keep gamers coming back again and again...

Review: G.G Series ALL BREAKER (DSiWare)

G.G Series ALL BREAKER (DSiWare)

Are you worthy of the hammer?

We have another title in the G.G series to consider, and this one opts to go back to action platformer roots. However, G.G Series ALL BREAKER focuses on including puzzle elements into the mix alongside the oddly compelling, melee-centric action. The end result is an engaging experience that'll keep challenging both your...

Review: Glory of Generals: The Pacific (3DS eShop)

Glory of Generals: The Pacific (3DS eShop)

War never changes

Whether fighting in fantasy worlds or gritty reality, 3DS-owning strategists have had a steady stream of wargames to keep them busy since the system's launch. CIRCLE Entertainment has been responsible for a particularly prolific eShop invasion, with World Conqueror 3D, European Conqueror 3D and Glory of Generals all joining the...

Review: Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3 (3DS)

Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3 (3DS)

​Live by the sword, grind by the sword

Koei's hack and slash franchise returns to Nintendo platforms with Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3 – a title that provides a more personal touch when it comes to retelling the events of Japanese history. This is a game that's largely about your own custom made character, as you follow a mostly historically...

Review: Shiftlings (Wii U eShop)

Shiftlings (Wii U eShop)

Stuck in second gear

Puzzle-platformers are all the rage in the world of indie games. Perhaps it's because they're so accessible for so many different kinds of gamers - or because they're a genre well suited to exploring unconventional narratives. Whatever the case, intuitive design is central to the success of these generally more minimalist games...
