News: Nintendo Teams Up With Disney For "Wii U Showdown"

Nintendo Teams Up With Disney For "Wii U Showdown"

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...

New 3DS Sizzle Reels Show Their Wares

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...

Super Mario Gangnam Style Flash Mob's Got Some Moves

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...

This Rayman Legends Footage Seriously Rocks

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...

Check Out Dinosaur Planet, Before it Was Invaded by Star Fox

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...

Nintendo Direct Channel Arrives on YouTube

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...

Your First Look at Super Mario Bros. on Wii U

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...

Ocarina of Time Makes a Good Bedtime Story

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...

Hulu Plus Still On the Way to 3DS

Apparently

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,...

Check Out The First Hour of Pandora's Tower

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,...

White Bear Studios Starts the 3DS Sudoku Ball Rolling

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..

Hands On: PlayOn

PlayOn

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..
