Behold The Incredible Destructive Power Of The Mario Kart 8 Super Horn

Spiny blue shells, begone!

A short time ago we posted a video of Nintendo's new TV spot for Mario Kart 8, which gives a humourous spin (no pun intended) to the game's use of anti-gravity. Nintendo has now posted this video — along with two others — to its YouTube channel, and you can watch them in glorious HD quality below. The most amusing...

Musician Lindsey Stirling Dresses Up As Aurora From Child Of Light, Because Why Not?

Popular artist channels Ubisoft's RPG hit for unique video performance

We love Lindsey Stirling here at Nintendo Life — not only does she play a mean fiddle (OK, violin), but she's absolutely potty about video games and never misses an opportunity to cover the soundtrack of a famous title or dress up as a popular character. Her latest video —...

Nintendo Goes For The Female Pre-Teen Vote With This Tomodachi Life Commercial

Whoa! Cool!

Tomodachi Life isn't far from release now, and Nintendo clearly has high hopes for the game's commercial fortunes. However, it could be argued that the company hasn't had such a tricky title to market for quite some time; Tomodachi Life isn't really a game as such, and is clearly going to require some savvy promotion to really hammer...

Join Us For A Relaxing Weekend Drive Around Mario Kart 8's Vintage Circuits

A blast from the past

In keeping with previous entries in the series, Mario Kart 8 resurrects popular tracks from past games. These are far from being lazy upgrades, though — many have been retooled to take advantage of the game's anti-gravity focus, and all of them naturally benefit from a luscious HD lick of paint. In the video below, intrepid...

Witness The Intolerable Cruelty Of Mario Kart 8

All thanks to Mario Kart TV's awesome slow-mo feature

Mario Kart TV is one of the biggest additions to Mario Kart 8, and will allow players to save, edit and share their finest on-track moments. It's also great for messing about with and creating daft little videos, such as the one we present to you below. The game's slow-mo feature makes even the...

Coming to the new game, too?

As we all know, Disney Infinity 2.0 will feature a large helping of Marvel characters.

This Mock Trailer For The Sega Port Of Montezuma's Revenge Turns On The Toilet Humour

Don't get caught short

The NES may have ruled the roost in North America during the '80s and early '90s, but Sega's Master System console was still home to some amazing titles — and in Europe, was incredibly popular.

Realistic Mario Probably Wouldn't Have Been As Successful As Super Mario

Head + block = ouch

In case the size-altering mushrooms and cartoon-like environments didn't make it obvious enough, Super Mario Bros. takes place in a world of fantasy.
