  • News ARMS Version 3.1.0 Is Now Available

    A new stage! Sort of…

    The latest notable news in ARMS was the recent addition of Lola Pop—a brand new, clown-themed fighter—alongside an associated stage, new ARMS, and various balancing tweaks. Nintendo sure isn’t slowing down with the updates though, as it’s already prepped and released a new patch that makes a series of notable tweaks...

  • News My Nintendo in North America Adds Free Games to its Gold Rewards

    Zen Pinball 3D! Runner2! More!

    A few days ago, we reported on My Nintendo in Europe adding four free games—two on 3DS, two on Wii U—to its Gold Rewards, something that has been much requested in the past months. While it may be that many decried the specific games being offered, it at least shows that there’s some effort on Nintendo’s side...

  • News LEGO Worlds Just Got a New Update

    Performance changes! Online! A new icon!

    Suffice to say, we weren’t all too impressed with LEGO Worlds when it came out a few weeks ago, as the subpar performance and janky gameplay made it an experience that simply wasn’t all that much fun to play. Even so, we held off on giving it a score until the full experience could be delivered—an...

  • News Super Grand Prix Mode Is Coming to Super Bomberman R

    The gift that keeps on giving

    Super Bomberman R was one of the highlights of the Switch’s launch lineup, offering a retro inspired experience that perfectly sells the concept of the Switch and its multiplayer options. Since then, Konami has kept the game updated to keep interest high, putting out a few free content updates that expand and polish...

  • News 3DS OS Version 11.6.0-39 Is Now Available for Download

    11.5.0-38 is so last year

    With each passing day, it seems that Nintendo Switch becomes an increasingly more important part of Nintendo’s plans, while the 3DS proportionally becomes more and more irrelevant. The release of Metroid: Samus Returns helps stem this, but there’s still a lingering feeling that the platform is on its last legs. Perhaps...

  • News Here’s the Full List of Changes Made by ARMS Version 3.0.0

    You'll float, too

    ARMS is still ticking along just fine, seeing a regular amount of content additions and balancing tweaks every few weeks. The big news with the current update is that the new fighter, Lola Pop, is finally being added to the game, but there’s a number of other additions and tweaks that have been made, too. Alongside Lola, we’ve...

  • Exclusive Here's What's In Today's Free FAST RMX REMIX Update

    Mixing things up

    FAST RMX was one of our favourite Switch launch titles; it's pretty much everything we wanted from an F-Zero game, but without Captain Falcon and the gang. The lovely folks over at Shin'en Multimedia just got in touch to remind us that the REMIX UPDATE is coming to FAST RMX later today, which will add 6 new tracks...

  • News Overcooked: Special Edition Update Brings Silky-Smooth Framerate

    A little longer in the oven works wonders

    We rather liked Overcooked: Special Edition when it brought chaotic co-op cookery to the Switch back in July. It's been very popular on other platforms previously of course, but there is nothing like playing on the Switch on-the-go in tabletop mode with a friend, is there? Unfortunately, there...

  • News Splatoon 2 Version 1.3.0 Is Now Live

    At last, the Tri-Slosher nerf!

    Splatoon 2 has already seen a number of changes since launch, adding in new stages and content alongside some much needed tweaks to balancing the greater metagame. It’s been a bit since the last update—although we have naturally seen the addition of some new stages and weapons, periodically—and now Nintendo has...

  • News FAST RMX Version 1.3 Goes Live on 13th September

    Bring on the free DLC

    FAST RMX was a standout title in the Switch’s launch library, carrying on the dream of F-Zero with its high intensity futuristic racing. Since then, the game has been occasionally tweaked with new updates that add in new content and extra features, and the latest of those has just received a release date. FAST RMX version...

  • News Super Mario Maker Gets A Long-Overdue Update On Wii U

    To make for a "pleasant playing experience"

    Super Mario Maker was one of our favourite Wii U games; Nintendo clearly invested great time, resources and thought into making it greater than its core concept. The user interface, the creativity of the tools that feed the player's imagination and the overall polish are a testament to the development...

  • News Nintendo Switch OS Version 3.0.2 Is Now Live

    Behold the splendor!

    It’s been quite a fair bit of time since Nintendo last updated the Nintendo Switch software with *gasp* new features beyond that all-important stability that we simply cannot get enough of in any Nintendo console. Nintendo has heard your cries, and has opted to grace the raving masses with yet another glorious software update...

  • News Super Mario Run Is Back on the iOS App Store

    Mario was just taking a lunch break

    Earlier today, we reported on the mysterious disappearance of Super Mario Run from the iOS App Store, a move which didn’t have any explanation by either Apple or Nintendo. Perhaps it had something to do with a bug in the game which warranted its removal or maybe there was some kind of problem on the side of the...

  • News Super Mario Run Version 2.1.0 Is Now Live

    Achievements! More Buildings! More Toads!

    Super Mario Run has been out for a little while now, on both Android and iOS, and while it hasn't perhaps been the home run that may have been expected from the famed plumber's debut on smart devices, it's still seen pretty decent success. Nintendo may have stated that major content updates won't be coming...

  • News Fast RMX Version 1.2 Is Now Live

    Time Attack! Online friend matches!

    Fast RMX was one of the stand out titles in the Nintendo Switch launch line up, bringing high-speed, futuristic racing to fill in a gap left behind by a certain dormant Nintendo franchise. As a port of the Wii U's excellent Fast Racing NEO, this enhanced edition brings all the DLC and some additional stages, along...

  • News Nintendo Switch OS Version 2.2.0 Is Now Live

    Wow, look at those patch notes

    Nintendo has done an effective job of creating a well-crafted OS with the Nintendo Switch, but with each passing day, it seems that fans are getting more eager for additional features. When will we be able to watch Netflix on it? How much longer till the Virtual Console launches? What about the web browser that's...

    Folklore in the forest!

    Nintendo is still plugging away and keeping its first smart device game Miitomo fresh with new content. If you check in today you can grab the latest items in the Miitomo Drop stage, "Folklore in the forest! Fairy Fashion #2".

  • News Zelda: Breath of the Wild Update 1.1.2 Makes For A More Pleasant Gaming Experience

    The best just keeps getting better

    Just when you thought that it couldn't get any better playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, here comes an update to make things even more "pleasant". When you boot up the game next you should hopefully receive update 1.1.2, which offers the following benefits according to Nintendo's own patch notes:...

  • News A New Patch Is Live for Lego City Undercover

    And it's not 13 GB!

    Many of you will no doubt remember the panic that erupted about a week ago, where an evidently misprinted box for Lego City Undercover mentioned that the game would require an eye-watering 13 GB install to play. Fortunately, WB was quick to dismiss this, though perhaps an update of that size might've been useful. All the same,...
