Experience the Blue Shell Blues in Mario Kart 8 With The Brett Domino Trio

We've all been blue shelled at some point

Mario Kart 8 does a lot right, including the fact that the blue / spiny shell moves along the ground to take out others en-route to the race leader, but the mere presence of that item is enough to irritate some. It likely annoys stronger players the most, as their reward for being rather good at the game is...

Nintendo Minute Unboxes The Mario Kart 8 Wii U Bundle

What's inside the box? Well, a Wii U...

We do rather like the regular Nintendo Minute videos here at Nintendo Life, and the latest is one for all you unboxing fans out there.

The Latest Mario Kart 8 Commercial is Possibly the Strangest Yet

Weird is good, right?

It's the opinion of some, including this writer, that Nintendo's renewed focus on seizing attention in the face of tougher times has reminded the company of key parts of its identity. After bland lifestyle adverts in the Wii and DS era as Nintendo merely needed to release something to make big bucks, we're now seeing the...

This "Upside-Down Test" Mario Kart 8 Commercial is a Bit Awesome

"It's Flipping Fun"

Nintendo has expressed its desire to heavily promote Mario Kart 8 in the coming weeks and months, no doubt hoping to tempt a lot of gamers on the fence regarding the Wii U to take the plunge. In-store ads and a Mario Kart TV web app will play roles, though we should expect the company to spend some marketing money on good-old TV...

Here's a Video of The Temple of Time Made With Unreal Engine 4

Timeless

There's plenty of speculation, reasonably so in light of time that's passed and the fact it's needed for the system, that we may see the first footage of the new The Legend of Zelda Wii U title at E3. That's not confirmed, of course, but since the Zelda-themed demonstration video that did the rounds during the Wii U's big reveal at E3 2011,...

Nintendo Serves Up New Videos For Kirby, NES Remix 2, Tomodachi Life and Mario Golf

Feast your eyes

After early months this year that have seen some major releases but also some quiet release spells, at retail and on the eShop platforms, we're now entering a stretch where most weeks have something enticing to separate us from our money. This week we have NES Remix 2 on the Wii U eShop, while next week Mario Golf: World Tour will...

Learn More About the Stunning Art Style and Sound in Child of Light

The adventure is getting closer

While plenty of attention with the Wii U has drifted towards Mario Kart 8 and a host of upcoming Wii U eShop releases, we feel that Ubisoft's Child of Light shouldn't be forgotten or overlooked. Arriving on the download store next week, it's a title full of potential. With a script that'll read like a poem and with...
