Data Miners Find Evidence That Suggests New Splatoon amiibo Are Coming

Guess what they are?

Data Miners have been particularly notorious on the Wii U for leaking information ahead of releases, and while many of the leaks may seem to be bulletproof, it's not always the best idea to take them as hard fact. For exapmle, the track record with Splatoon has been pretty spot on so far, with most weapons and stages being outed...

Data Miners Discover Another Costume for Super Mario Maker

Guess what it is?

Nintendo has certainly made some rather unforeseen choices when deciding what costumes to add into Super Mario Maker.

These don't really seem out of place,...

Data Miners Leak Some of the Information From Tomorrow's Nintendo Direct

Rumours are always around with Nintendo, and as E3 taught us (again) it's a case of picking the sources you trust carefully. While not right on everything, Revogamers has been on the ball with rumours occasionally in the past, so with a bucket of salt handy it's worth considering what it has to say. The site's latest dollop of...

Animal Crossing and Pixel 8-Bit Mario amiibo Look Set For E3 Reveal

Nintendo Spain is to blame this time

It seems that inadvertent E3 reveals are continuing to spill out, this time courtesy of a sloppy promotional email sent out by Nintendo Spain.

But...

E3 is about a month away, which means rumours will arrive with great regularity.
