  • News Nintendo Steps Up Its 3DS Marketing for Young Gamers

    These ads aren't bad, actually

    A little while ago we wrote rather glowingly about Nintendo of America's latest slogan - 'There's No Play Like It'. It's not the first time NoA has gone for the angle of promoting its games for their uniqueness, and in the context of a 2DS advert that pitch certainly made sense. The subsidiary has now launched a...

    Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2 are among the most critically acclaimed and popular titles of the Wii era, even proving popular as Virtual Console downloads on Wii U. They're also games with interesting histories - from the origins of the sequel as Super Mario Galaxy 1.5, down to...

    A mighty slice of embarrassment

    Another week has passed in the world of Nintendo, and so it's time for us to round up the week's events in a single, tidy package.

  • Video The Stakes Are High in This Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse Story Trailer

    Free DLC armor with some pre-orders, too

    It was certainly positive news for RPG fans, earlier this year, when Atlus confirmed Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse for a Summer release in the Americas - it was called 'Final' in Japan. An entirely separate game from Shin Megami Tensei IV, it nevertheless shares the name as t

  • Video Marvel at the Madness of Dragon Ball Fusions

    It looks... interesting

    The Dragon Ball franchise is big business for Bandai Namco and its partners, appearing in various forms across multiple platforms. In August the next 3DS entry will make its mark in Japan - Dragon Ball Fusions. It's an RPG and, as the name makes clear, allows players to fuse characters together in strange combinations, while...

  • Video Gear Up for Kirby: Planet Robobot With This Extended Overview Trailer

    See more of the abilities, minigames and amiibo features

    Kirby: Planet Robobot isn't out in the West until 10th June, but Nintendo is wasting little time in promoting the 3DS sequel to fans. The review embargo was surprisingly early, which gave us a chance to share how much we love it, and the online marketing campaign is picking up pace. Following...

  • Video Learn How The Game Boy Made Clever Use of Memory Mapping

    Find a comfortable seat

    A couple of months ago we shared a video by JackTech, which explored in some detail how the Game Boy CPU works. It was part one in a 'hardware autopsy' series that aims to unpick and explain how the iconic portable device operates, providing some insight into how humble technology was used in clever ways. The second part has...

  • Video Learn a Little More About Sonic Boom and The Rise (and Fall) of Lyric

    "Oh shiiii...ooot"

    Time can be a great healer. Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric wasn't a golden moment for the mascot, but the Boom universe continues to roll on with the animated series and the upcoming Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice on 3DS. Considering all that went wrong with the Wii U exclusive, it's a series that's done well to survive. The troubles of...
