There are some awesome outfits on the scene

In a number of recent articles we've highlighted the fact that, while Pokémon is hugely popular in the West, its appeal is on a whole different level in Japan.

This Piano Medley of Zelda, Kingdom Hearts, Pokémon and Mario Soothes the Soul

Because game music and pianos are cool

The idea of someone filming themselves playing video game music on an old — and rather out-of-tune — piano may not be overly-exciting on paper, but it's oddly wonderful. We post various videos of game music, animation and live-action fan creations, and the latest to catch our attention has a rather...

Killer Instinct's Music Gets the Cover it Deserves

Supreme Victory

We often share some of the best fan content that we find, whether they're short films portraying scenes from games, memorable pieces of art or top-notch music covers.

A Rundown of the Disney Infinity Wave 1 Toys

It's a 'Toy Story'

With the approaching release of Disney Infinity and incoming news of more play-sets (featuring Toy Story and Mickey no less), as well as mobile apps, it’s easy to lose sight of the small action figures at the heart of this new franchise.

This Super Metroid Animation is Rather Impressive

Let's all dream of a full animated series...

So, things have gone a bit quiet with the Metroid franchise. Metroid: Other M divided fans on the Wii, 3DS ambassadors received a copy of Game Boy Advance title Metroid Fusion, and the IP made an appearance in Nintendo Land.

There are a lot of them

Not too long ago Nintendo of America's Dan Adelman stated that 20-30 "new Indie games" could come to the Wii U eShop by the end of the year.

Educating the masses?

Nintendo UK has employed the services of stand-up comedian Rufus Hound in order to spread the message of what's so great about its Wii U console, and the first of what will presumably be a series of videos has just hit YouTube.

Rejected CGI Zelda Film Discovered Online

It wasn't to be

Plenty of video game projects come and go while fans are none the wiser, including some for spin-offs and movies that don't make the cut.
