Mega in many ways
At the time of writing, it looks unlikely that Capcom will be reeling out a new Mega Man game to celebrate the series' 25th Anniversary, with free PC title Street Fighter X Mega Man and various collectibles being the offerings dished out by the publisher. Yet while the officially sanctioned fan game released last year — as it...
We pity the fools who don't check it out
Ubisoft seems to be getting ready to build the excitement for Rayman Legends, which will finally grace the Wii U in late August/early September. In the meantime Wii U owners can indulge in the free Challenge App, which is another way to build a bit of personal hype for the long-awaited platformer. One new...
Some gorgeous animation to enjoy
Earlier this week we reported that Etrian Odyssey: Millennium Girl (or Millennium Maiden) will have cutscenes produced by the highly respected anime studio Madhouse, which is terrific news for the potential standard of the story-telling segments. Millennium Girl, arriving in Japan on 27th June, reimagines the series...
We have no objection
Ace Attorney 5 is now just a few months away from release in Japan, while localisation to the West in confirmed but without a timeline for its arrival. As a result Capcom is firing up the hype train in Japan; we can happily hop on board, albeit with the danger that we have no idea what anyone is saying. Still, we must say that...
A devious tactic
When playing Super Smash Bros. Melee there are various tactics you can use to come out on top. You could pick the speedy Fox McCloud and run rings around the other players, blast people from afar as Samus, maybe pick a powerhouse character and take it to your opponent from close range. Or you could just pick Luigi and win by doing...
Get a full wardrobe with minimum effort
Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins is released today on the 3DS, and offers a pocket-sized insight on Chase McCain's past as a rookie cop. In the game, you can partake in side-quests to unlock Chase's selection of outfits and costumes. Finding all of these side-quests isn't an easy task, but Family Gamer...
Oh so sneaky
The confirmation that Splinter Cell Blacklist will arrive on Wii U this August was another welcome multi-platform release announcement from Ubisoft, especially as the GamePad is set to be utilised for its own unique uses. We've seen some details around weapon and item management on the touch screen — of course — as well as some...
From the team that produced the Harmony of a Hunter Metroid albums
Shinesparkers is a Metroid fan-site and collective of music lovers that brought us some terrific — and free — Metroid music in the past couple of years. Harmony of a Hunter was followed by Harmony of a Hunter 101% Run, both of which we discussed with the team way back in April...
Learning the hard way
Capcom's Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is a fantastic game, but it's also a seriously hardcore experience, requiring dedication, skill and the patience of a saint. Just in case our reviews of the Wii U and the 3DS versions haven't convinced you to make the purchase, we sat our video features editor and Monster Hunter virgin Rory...
Project Unity plays games from 18 formats, and not a ROM in sight
We sometimes direct your attention to hardware, often portable, that gives gamers a new way to play their old cartridges, discs or even smaller carts. While ROMs are always a sticking area, there's plenty of hardware out there designed to give fresh life to all of the physical copies...
It's so... bad, by which we mean cool
Ah, the Power Glove, it's so bad. When it made its high-profile appearance in The Wizard with the infamous line, it was during a confusing Michael Jackson-inspired fad where 'bad' actually meant 'cool', which is about as logical as the idea of wearing a glove to play games. Still, it's an iconic example of the...
More cameos and insanity to enjoy
Earlier this year we posted a video called Super Mario Busters, which was a new creation from YouTube user James Farr. It combined a homage to the Ghostbusters movie with enough Nintendo game references to keep eagle-eyed viewers amused for a long time. Now we have the sequel, The New Super Mario Busters 2, which...
Some thoughtful games, and tanks shooting bugs
It was confirmed earlier this year that Level-5's Guild02 collection is coming to Japan as individual 3DS eShop downloads, following the structure that saw three of the four Guild01 games come to the West. This collection includes three games — Bugs vs. Tanks!, The Starship Damrey and The Friday When...
He's rocking an awesome Limited Edition Astro Boy Game Boy Light, too
It's no secret that Apple co-founder Steve "Woz" Wozniak is something of a legend at Game Boy Tetris, but seeing the man in action is something else. Game Informer managed to infiltrate Woz's hotel room recently, and recorded some footage of him dominating at
Disney is involved in some capacity
Earlier last week, we reported that Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse is looking set for release on the Wii U, as the title received a classification in Brazil. To add further speculation to this news, SEGA posted the following teaser video on its Twitter account, suggesting that a remastered version...
Capcom has released the first in a series of video profiles for each of the character classes in Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara. This initial video focuses on the Fighter class, a no-nonsense warrior who excels in melee combat and represents an ideal starting point for newcomers. Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of...
Everyone's a bloomin' tourist
So, Animal Crossing: New Leaf has been on a lot of wishlists for a little too long now, with its June release in North America and Europe getting tantalizingly close. Social lives will be lost, and the summer sun will be ignored but, who cares? It's Animal Crossing, and we want it yesterday. We do all have to wait a...
It's getting closer, Europe
Although lucky gamers in North America have now been enjoying Fire Emblem: Awakening on 3DS since the start of February — Japanese gamers have been playing since last year — those of us in Europe are still waiting. It arrives in the region on 19th April, which still seems like a fair old wait considering just how...
Less gathering, more hunting
Quite a number of us have probably, judging by the popularity of the subject within the community's forums, been playing a fair bit of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on 3DS and Wii U. It's a title that — given the chance to sink its claws in — can be difficult to put down. Still, advancing to the stage where you can...
Step aside, R.O.B.
Video game enthusiasts are often wonderful people, in that they'll do something unspeakably cool and awesome simply because they feel like it; that's why we rather adore quite a lot of video game culture. We also like anything that fuses modern technology with retro gadgets, which is exactly what this Japanese genius has done...
"We had no goal, only Cage"
Oh boy. Some things in life simply defy explanation, so we won't even bother, but merely offer this befuddling video and allow you to draw your own conclusions. YouTube user Criken has created a texture mod for The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask which liberally coats various surfaces in the game with the face of...
All for one lucky little girl
Earlier today we posted an article on The Electus 64 II Mini, a handheld Nintendo 64 that resembles a glossy, chunky Game Boy. And rather like London buses (wait for an eternity and two come at the same time), we've been directed to an arcade cabinet that plays NES games — just like the handheld N64, that's actual...
Packed with features that actually work
When it comes to modded consoles — which in this case means one that plays actual cartridges, not ROMS — we've seen plenty of innovative efforts over the years. Enthusiasts with a flair for hardware tech have produced handheld GameCube systems housed in tupperware boxes — we kid you not — a Super NES...
It's a dog's life
As a big-budget release, Assassin's Creed III was always destined to have a fair bit of DLC. After a couple of packs featuring extra missions and multiplayer bonuses — the latter's not recommended on Wii U due to the lack of an active online community — it got to the main event, The Tyranny of King Washington. It's a new...
Three free tracks, album on the way
Last summer we directed you to a music track from rapper Richie Branson, called Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, which combined rap with enough game references to satisfy almost anyone. He's now returning with a new album that's focused on SNES classic Chrono Trigger, and to celebrate the 18th Anniversary since its...
Even in his spare time he's playing with Pikmin
Nintendo has a bit of a history in cartoon making, as anyone who ever had the pleasure of watching The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! will testify to. It seems as though the company is now contemplating venturing into the business once more, with a few animated shorts designed to be viewed using the...
We want a polterpup
Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon's release is now around two weeks away for both North America and Europe, a long-awaited sequel to the GameCube launch title. As well as featuring an all-new adventure with the under-appreciated brother, it'll include local and online multiplayer, an extra mode that was kept under wraps for the majority...
Meet Chief Dunby and Frank Honey
With its release looming ever-closer, Nintendo UK is continuing its webisode series to introduce the cast of LEGO City: Undercover. The first video revolved around Chase McCain, the hero that you control as you venture around the open-world city and indulge in various wacky shenanigans. The latest videos — yes,...
ROM City Rampage is a blast from the past
Out today in North America and Europe, Retro City Rampage is, as the title suggests, a WiiWare release that aims to remind us of gaming's older days. Inspired by the original GTA, it includes a host of jokes, references and areas designed to bring to mind pop culture of the '80s and '90s. Also included...
Hits Japanese stores on 28th February
It could be a good while before those of us in the West get to sample the delights of Professor Layton and the Azran Legacies, apparently the final adventure with the famous hat-wearing puzzle solver. It arrives in Japan in just a few days, so as a result the promotional videos are going into overdrive...
15 seconds of glorious pixels
A few days ago we were relieved to confirm that Retro City Rampage arrives on WiiWare on 28th February, a long-awaited and delayed retro homage to the original GTA titles. That description may sell it a little short, as it's packed with pop-culture references and diversions that are set to distract gamers on a regular...
Another classic Nintendo Direct moment
Since the broadcasts began in late 2011, Nintendo Direct has produced a number of memorable moments, even prompting us to name ten of our favourites last year. It seems that Japanese viewers were treated to another example in the most recent broadcast on Valentines Day, which has now been posted by Nintendo UK...
Occasionally we like to show the best of video game culture, snippets of creativity and ingenuity that show the love some have for our favourite hobby. Today the spotlight should focus on the engineers from student-run organization X-Labs from the University of Florida (USF). According to scientific explanations that we don't fully...
A big effort for 30 seconds
So, there's a cool new advert for Paper Mario: Sticker Star running in North America, which some of you may have already seen. It works with the idea of representing gameplay with stop-motion animation, using paper and card for an authentic look that, to the game's credit, isn't actually a million miles away from in-game...
Crash Bandicoot, a series that originated as an exclusive on the Sony PlayStation but evolved to appear on multiple platforms, has been relatively quiet of late. In fact since Activision attained rights to the series in 2008, when it co-published Crash: Mind over Mutant, it's only appeared on mobile platforms. That's not the say that more...
Metal rock, that is
It's Monday, the Holiday season is well and truly over, and despair may be the feeling of the day. Still, fear not, because YouTube has the answer to brighten your mood! No, it's not a sneezing panda, or a puppy doing the cutest things, or even a rubbish Gangnam Style routine. Oh no, it's music from Super Mario Bros. with a metal...
Shawshank Redemption, anyone?
During yesterday's Nintendo Direct shenanigans, it was tough to keep track of the varied footage and announcements from across the regions. With that in mind, we consider it our duty to make sure that you see the latest LEGO City: Undercover trailer that was included in the Nintendo of Europe broadcast. Not only does...
One of the best you'll see
We've seen some creative and clever videos over the years, with no shortage of film-making skill, that celebrate Nintendo franchises or characters. One of our favourites is this post-it Mario sequence, which used stop-motion video techniques and 7000 post-it notes — all in the name of entertainment. The talented people...
Depends on the game, of course
With all of the hubbub and excitement it may be possible that some Nintendo fans have forgotten about us Europeans and PAL gamers, still waiting for Wii U to arrive. It's actually the worst for Japanese gamers who'll get the system last — what were the odds on that a year ago? In any case, for many of us the...
A deluxe model, no less
So, plenty of you in North America have a shiny Wii U, and you're possibly cradling the GamePad in your arms between game sessions and telling children with sticky hands to stay away. Or maybe you're just playing a load of games, but we're sure most are you are being quite careful to keep your new console shiny. What you...
Broken Rules' indie title finally flies the nest
Broken Rules has released a launch trailer for its Wii U indie game Chasing Aurora, which is available now on the Wii U eShop in North America. Featuring up to five-player asynchronous multiplayer and glorious vector art, Chasing Aurora is a 2D aerial action game where players battle it out as birds...
Great balls of fire!
With the Wii U launch just days away in North America, Tomorrow Corporation has released a new trailer for its upcoming Wii U eShop title Little Inferno. This bizarre new title from Kyle Gabler (World of Goo) and Kyle Gray (Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure) provides the player with an "entertainment fireplace". Players...
All hail the Zombie King
Halloween may be gone for the year, but one particular Wii U game will be playing on the fact that, for many of us, it's the time of year with long, dark nights. ZombiU is one of the most eagerly anticipated Wii U launch titles, with early impressions emphasizing the complexities and difficulties it'll offer, as well as its...
WaraWara Plaza and Wii U Chat prominent
With this morning's Nintendo Direct broadcast, there was a lot to digest, translate and understand about Miiverse and other Wii U system details. Nintendo of America has kindly put together a short summary video to highlight the key features, and provide a slightly more detailed look at the console's UI (user...
Shaky YouTube videos, begone!
Whenever new consoles hit the market, we see a glut of shaky-cam unboxing videos on YouTube, which we may watch out of sheer curiosity. In a surprising sequence in today's Nintendo Direct, however, Satoru Iwata provided his own video, albeit with much higher production values, which he called the Wii U Premium Pack...
Get ready to cringe
With Nintendo's quest to appeal to an extraordinarily wide range of gamers, it'll be susceptible to using marketing or adverts that make the older, jaded or more cynical amongst us gnash our teeth. These celebrity-based adverts can often be categorised as good, bad or cringeworthy, and we think another candidate for the latter...
Upbeat music included
After yesterday's Nintendo Direct broadcast, we've seen a gradual release of trailers to show some of the biggest titles on the way. We've already enjoyed juicy footage from some prominent retail games, but we reckon that plenty of people still enjoy some good old-fashioned sizzle reels. Sometimes one game per trailer isn't...
"I want to play a game"
Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward is set to release next week in North America, and publisher Aksys Games has taken the opportunity to release the game's anime prologue. Dubbed in English, the video reveals how main character Sigma was kidnapped, and how he must work together with eight other captives to escape the Nonary...
It was inevitable
If you haven't heard of Gangnam Style, maybe you're the lucky one. That might be harsh, but the quirky music video has gone so viral that there's no escape, meaning that lots of people are happily imitating it and looking rather silly. As most will know, meanwhile, the best place to find people dressed in silly outfits with time...
It'll call you names
So, La Mulana is just a few days away. For Nintendo gamers that enjoy an action-platforming challenge and still have love for their Wii system, this has been a long-awaited WiiWare title that's likely to scratch an itch. Challenge is the word, though, and developer Nigoro has been kind enough to produce a lengthy beginner's...
Platforming to heaven
Rayman Legends is a Wii U title worth keeping an eye on, as it's starting off as a system exclusive and, most importantly, is a follow-up to the highly regarded Rayman Origins. The original earned plenty of praise for gorgeous visuals — including the standard-definition Wii version — and lengthy, impressive level designs...
Anthropomorphic characters, but different
Star Fox Adventures was the last Rare developed game on a Nintendo system before the company was bought by Microsoft, and it was famously not what had initially been planned. It was going to be a new IP called Dinosaur Planet, with creatures called Sabre and Krystal, sidekicks Tricky and Kyte, as well as a...
Budding film-makers need look no further
Not long ago we brought you news about a competition being run by Nintendo and BFI (British Film Institute), with support from Ridley Scott, to give 3DS owners an opportunity to produce and show a professional 3D production at the 56th BFI London Film Festival in October. With this weekend also bringing a...
Director of Blade Runner is backing new joint venture by Nintendo and the BFI
Nintendo and the British Film Institute (BFI for short) have joined forces to create A Vision in 3D — a ground-breaking initiative to get Nintendo 3DS owners making movies with their consoles, with the central theme being "British Summer 2012". Expect a large proportion...
In Japanese, of course
Nintendo Direct has been a regular event in 2012, with game reveals and major announcements served up at regular intervals. It's a strategy that Nintendo is taking seriously, even unveiling 3DS XL in one of the broadcasts, and after the first presentation in February we even argued that it was all part of Nintendo joining the...
Here it is!
Nintendo said we wouldn't see any Wii U games in tonight's Nintendo Direct Live, but Satoru Iwata snuck in a cheeky glimpse of Super Mario Bros. to show off the system's new Miiverse functionality. It was only a short video and focuses more on the system's all-new social networking functions, but we'll never pass up an opportunity to...
Cute baby included
Sometimes video games deserve to be passed from one generation to the next, with The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D being a perfect example that brings the Nintendo 64 classic to 3DS gamers. Kyle Hilliard and Ben Hanson from Game Informer have decided that age is no barrier to learning about this particular adventure; they've...
It was way back in October that we first heard about Hulu Plus for Nintendo 3DS, but it's gone quiet since then, leading some to believe the service has been surreptitiously dropped. According to the latest video from Nintendo, it's still very much in the works. The video below crows about the advantages of connecting 3DS to the 'net,...
3D TV in your hand
The 3DS eShop will be updated this week with the much anticipated Nintendo Video application. Nintendo is hosting a 3DS event in the UK next Tuesday. The invitation bears the phrase "you won't believe your eyes" — could this be related to the 3D video application? Download the free Nintendo Video application, only for Nintendo 3DS 11th July 2011 – Nintendo 3DS..
Enter the Tower
While Nintendo may be gearing up for the big E3 reveal of its Wii successor, the company still has a few aces up its sleeve for its little-white-box-that-could. While the Wii hasn't housed the most robust selection of RPGs over the years, Nintendo has been playing some serious catch up with games like Mistwalker's The Last Story,...
Joe Musashi returns!
It seems like only yesterday that we learnt that Sega and Griptonite were working on a Shinobi game for the 3DS. Time moves fast on the interwebs however, and thanks to a recently leaked trailer we know a little more about the new Shinobi game. Recapping the series' history, the trailer below shows the following Shinobi games...
Play the numbers game
We all know the 3DS's top screen is magical, but this trailer for new portable title Sudoku Ball 3DS might be stretching things just slightly. It's not currently known whether WhiteBear Studios' foray into 3D number manipulation will be a cartridge release or available via download, but our money would be on it being one of...
Download free bleep-bloops from the game written by Shantae, NBA Jam, NES death metal composers
If these soundtrack samples and new video for Retro City Rampage are anything to go by, it would seem that Vblank is barring no holds for what certainly is one of the most ambitious games yet for WiiWare. Vblank snuck us over a new ten-song soundtrack "mixtape" to show off just how retro that..
Video shows off new features
So far Nintendo has announced the Virtual Console for 3DS as well as the ability to transfer DSiWare to 3DS, but it has a few more things to show off. This video shows the console's Mii Creator in more detail, with a photo used to create the basis of your Mii character. It also delves a little deeper into the Tag Mode...
Because there's no Hulu streaming disc
We recently had the opportunity to try out the video-streaming application PlayOn from MediaMall Technologies, which acts as a conduit between your Wii and the countless number of videos locked away on the Internet. It turns out there's a lot more than YouTube out there, and while the program's appeal clearly once was built on providing access to Netflix..
Our well of shadow puns is running dry
It may have been pushed back until 2011 in North America, but Lost in Shadow is still looking like one of the Wii's brightest upcoming releases. This behind-the-scenes documentary is in keeping with the game's unique graphical style, projecting the game's development team as shadows rather than the usual...
Get your plot details in order before the next adventure
Well, now that Nintendo has gone ahead and hired a voice actor for the traditionally silent Metroid: Other M star Samus Aran, we suppose it makes sense that they want to make the most of her talents. What better than to let the now-verbose heroine narrate a retrospective of her adventures with space jellyfish? Not only is it a nice summary of..
Spector shouting about the Mouse's outing
Alongside the announcement that Disney Epic Mickey will get the comic book treatment, Warren Spector and team also showed off some new footage from the game. In this b-roll video, Mickey enters the 2D worlds of Plutopia and Oh What a Knight, revealing more 2D platform action along the lines of the Steamboat Willie level that took centre stage at E3 2010..
Superimpose the running man into your world
You can't fault the fans of Gaijin's Bit.Trip series – from fanart to papercraft, they know how to show their love for Commander Video and friends. One ardent fan thinks there's more that can be done, and has created a YouTube 'call to arms' for other fans of the series. The idea is to superimpose...
Do a barrel roll, of course
It's already available in North America and Europe of course, but those of you who want to see just one more video of Pearl Harbor Trilogy - 1941: Red Sun Rising before taking the download plunge are in luck today. Check out the video below and be sure to read our Pearl Harbor Trilogy - 1941: Red Sun Rising review to find out if this downloadable slice of digital..
Let Cinemax take you through the basics
DSiWare music production tool Rytmik is surprisingly powerful for a portable package costing less than a tenner, but learning its intricacies can be a little daunting at first. That's why we thought we'd share with you this introduction to Rytmik from Cinemax, showing you how to craft an annoyingly catchy bass...
Hamferno, Smugleaf and the other one in action
We initially said the new starter Pokémon for the upcoming Black and White releases probably aren't the prettiest monsters we've ever seen, but in light of this first footage of them in battle we may have to chow down on our words. With fully animated monsters and new camera effects the battles are looking better than ever, though that's perhaps..
Lose yourself in this intriguing new video
Hudson Entertainment recently debuted a teaser for its upcoming Wii title Lost in Shadow (otherwise known as Tower of Shadow and A Shadow's Tale), starring a shadow and his Sylph companion. The latter will manipulate the light source and the former will utilize the dynamics of luminescence to climb a...
Spot the references in this one
Mark Ronson's made a bit of a name for himself remixing and revamping other artists' tracks, so it's no surprise to see the video for his new track Circuit Breaker take inspiration from other sources. Nobody expected it to borrow so heavily from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, though. With a distinctive-looking overworld, green-capped hero and what looks..
With pink lemonade goodness
Nnoo has mailed us a new trailer for the upcoming DSiWare app myPostcards, and we promised to deliver it to you post-haste. Nnooo are currently finalising the price point and release of myPostcards with Nintendo, but the tracking number is shooting for delivery sometime in April for a mere 200 points. More as it comes, though beware, this video is designed to make you..
New footage and details about Hudson's upcoming horror game
We've already gone hands-on with Hudson's horror title Calling, but maybe you'd like to hear some of the people involved with the development talk about the scare-fest. Eh? Eh? Alongside new footage, Chief Director Kazufumi Shimizu and Concept Creator and Design Director Takeshi Inomata...
Exclusive Nintendo Life moving images contained within
No doubt you've already cast your gaze over Corbie's excellent hands-on impressions of the shiny new Nintendo DSi XL, and as a companion to that feature we've cooked up a little video review of the console, purely because we're nice like that. Thanks go to the friendly people at Nintendo UK for supplying us with the review unit, as well as a..
Game developer does video gaming archaeology on YouTube
If you haven't heard of mobile phone and WiiWare game developer Robotube Games, it's possible you may have come across their Bit Museum video series on YouTube, presented by designer Jason Cirillo. We think they're some of the best gaming videos on the 'net with a special focus on the earliest...
Will it have you rolling about in laughter?
Sega have released a new video for Super Monkey Ball: Step and Roll showing gameplay footage of the much-loved Monkey Ball minigames. The trailer confirms the return of fan-favourite Monkey Target, as well as glimpses of new minigames built around the use of the Balance Board. It’s safe to say we can...
New information for one of DSiWare's most anticipated titles
Today Nintendo Life Towers was inundated with new Super Yum Yum Puzzle Adventures information. So much information, in fact, that some staffers had to eat their way out of the building. As a result we are pleased to give you ten new screenshots, a gameplay video and the thoughts of AirPlay company founder James Wright. We’ll let James..
Fun for the entire family
The DS XL - known as the DS LL in Japan - is something of a monster. Want proof? Check out this official promotional video, which has been released by Nintendo to advertise the impending Japanese launch of the console. The footage shows an almost unbearably happy Japanese family fawning over their new DS LL, and gives a good impression of just how chunky the new console..
See the monster handheld rolling
The Nintendo DSi XL (known as the Nintendo DSi LL in Japan) is the newest edition in the DS family and is slated for release in Japan on November 21st 2009. Europe and North America are to follow in the first quarter of 2010, with pricing still to be confirmed. The new console - which is essentially a bigger version of the DSi - hasn't had the best of receptions,..
Video of the first few levels hits the net, looks fang-tastic
As you may already be aware, Castlevania: The Adventure Rebirth came out in Japan recently. The Western release is still up in the air, so while you're waiting you might want to take a look at this footage, which has been posted up on YouTube by user jodecideion. Be warned - this may spoil your enjoyment of the game if you're the kind of..
Hand-drawn artwork for new Disney enemy
Game Informer is primed to reveal a bunch of new Epic Mickey details in its November issue but in the meantime the magazine's website has some interesting video content for you to digest. It's a three-minute time-lapse video (shortened from a half-hour) and showcases a rather traditional-looking Mickey facing off against one of his new enemies - an evil robot..
Zombie killer channels Mega Man
Looks like that leaked list of new Tatsunoko vs. Capcom characters is spot-on in at least one regard, as Capcom has revealed at the Tokyo Game Show that Frank West has been added to the Western and Japanese rerelease of the fighter. West made his first appearance in Capcom's Xbox 360 game Dead Rising, which later received a bland Wii port. His fighting moves seem to..
Service allows you to watch Hulu, Netflix and Youtube content on your console.
The Wii has a pretty poor track record when it comes to streaming media outside of Japan. No video rental services for us, no downloads, just the Nintendo Channel and its somewhat hokey delivery of promo videos. That is, unless you're the fiddly type, in which case you may have tried to get Orb up and running. Fiddly..
Claymation shows softer side of lethal Wyverns
It may be one of the most anticipated hardcore releases for Wii this year, but Monster Hunter 3 (Tri~) isn't afraid to show its sillier side, with the latest video from Capcom introducing would-be Hunters to their new best friend - Chacha (yes, really.) The short claymation video shows the little acorn-headed Chacha exploring the world and hunting down..
Stream Tom Cruise into your living room.
Video services are breaking through on consoles in the West: Netflix is up and running on Xbox 360 in the US, with SkyTV coming soon for the UK, and Sony has their own iTunes-like video store. Nintendo? Not so much over here, but in the company's homeland it's a totally different story. In addition to the Nintendo's own quirky Wii no Ma service, Fuji Soft..
The sequel to 2007's swim 'em up looking mighty fine.
With all the excitement of New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Metroid: Other M, you may well need a bit of a sitdown and some relaxation, which is handy really as Nintendo have just released a batch of new screenshots and a freshly caught video of Endless Ocean 2: Beautiful...
Get your eyes on the real-time opening for Ubi's new title.
If you've read our exclusive hands-on preview of Red Steel 2, you'll know I came away very impressed by the game's cel-shaded graphics. Nothing beats the ability to watch them in action yourself though, and earlier today Ubisoft revealed the game's opening scene to the public. Until the fade-to-black this is all in-game footage, with the..
Luc Bernard spills the beans in drunken video preview
It's been a while since we heard from our old mate Luc Bernard but then he has been a pretty busy chap lately. He's moved to the US, founded his own development studio and is currently putting the finishing touches to the iPhone title Mecho Wars. The game is shaping up nicely and owes a massive debt to the Nintendo classic Advance Wars, which is..
Explosions, shooting and hilarious-looking storyline accounted for
Announced mere days ago, the wait for Contra ReBirth could hardly be described as excruciating for owners of a Japanese Wii. Everyone else, on the other hand, will have to make due with excited air-punches and YouTube videos to get their fix until the title is unleashed in their region. Speaking of which, here's a YouTube video of..
Japanese television show debuts in-game footage of the upcoming DS remakes.
Viewers of the Japanese television show Pokémon Sunday were greeted with a welcome surprise yesterday - new, exclusive in-game video of the recently-announced Pokémon games, Heart Gold and Soul Silver! Along with the announcement that the games were in development and due for a fall release, the audience was also treated..
