  • News Epic Mickey on 3DS is a Castle of Illusion Sequel

    To the tower!

    Last year, Disney registered a Castle of Illusion trademark, which many thought would have something to do with the then-unannounced Disney Epic Mickey 2.

  • News Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion Confirmed for 3DS

    Now to fill in the details

    Earlier this week we reported on the rumour that Epic Mickey 2 was coming to 3DS.

The cover of the April issue of Nintendo Power leaves no doubt, showing a preview...

    Enhanced controls promised

    While a number of developers and high-profile games have tentatively stated that they'll arrive on Wii U, one that has clearly promised an appearance is Darksiders II from Vigil Games.

  • News Gon Paku Paku Paku Paku Adventure Announced for 3DS in Japan

    Now that's a video game name

    We often look at Nintendo console game releases in Japan with some envy, particularly when no localisation details are forthcoming. Titles such as Theatrhythm Final Fantasy are missed because they're part of a major, popular franchise, but in the case of Gon Paku Paku Paku Paku Adventure, we just really like the name. As...

    Out this season

    The appropriately up-again-down-again fortunes of Rollercoaster Tycoon 3D are heading up again: developer n-Space has announced the game should be out this Spring.

  • News New SNES Title's Pre-orders Sell Out

    Anything but a nightmare

    A few weeks ago we reported the surprising news that there's a new Super NES title on the way in 2013, defying the convention that developing retro games means publishing digitally on modern consoles or platforms.

    Sneaky

    Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed III will be released on Wii U, the publisher has revealed.
