Sorry Nintendo, but you can't please everybody!

For those of you that have defied the odds and are unaware, in the most recent Nintendo Direct a few weeks ago there was the surprise announcement of Wii U eShop digital re-releases for some of the Wii's best games. So far we've had the phenomenal Super Mario Galaxy 2 followed by the excellent

Free-to-play needs to make money somehow...

Nintendo is just hours away - at the time of writing - from announcing its Q3 financial results, which will teach us much about its Holiday season performance.

Art Academy Masters Produce Award-Winning Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Drawings

Some lovely work

An enduring legacy of the DS, 3DS and Wii U in future may well be the use of their resistive touch screens for impressive drawing apps. The Art Academy franchise is front and centre in this respect, giving gamers the tools to express themselves through art or to take tentative first steps in learning how. It's a refreshingly...

Wii U Release of Soul Axiom Will Search For Meaning in Q4

Full PC arrival in Q2

Just recently we spoke in detail to Wales Interactive about its most notable planned release in 2015 - Soul Axiom. A spiritual successor to Master Reboot, it'll be another title from the developer to grace the Wii U eShop alongside releases on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

Breath of Fire (Wii U eShop / SNES)

Dragon its heels behind the competition

The age of the 16-bit RPG is well-remembered, and many iconic titles from the time are still cherished by fans to this day.

RCMADIAX Confirms European Release Line-Up for the First Half of 2015

Playing catch-up

Earlier today we revealed that ZeNfa Productions is going to make its Wii U eShop début in Europe with ZaciSa: Defense of the Crayon!, an expanded and improved version of ZaciSa's Last Stand. There are a number of developers that released their first games on the Wii U eShop in 2014 - utilising the Nintendo Web Framework - through...

Extra content will be a patched to ZaciSa's Last Stand in North America

2014 brought a host of first-time developers to the Wii U eShop, particularly through the Nintendo Web Framework. This has often only been the case in North America - however - with a number of these projects not being localised to Europe, in all likelihood due to costs related...

Nintendo Download: 29th January (Europe)

29th January (Europe)

Metroid Prime Trilogy, Gunman Clive 2, Classic GBA Castlevania and more

It's Monday again, but this week's Nintendo Download Update for Europe has certainly put a spring in our step. Arguably one of the greatest gaming trilogies is available at a ridiculous introductory price, while we have more treats including a top notch Game Boy Advance...

Review: uWordsmith (Wii U eShop)

uWordsmith (Wii U eShop)

Limited lexicon

Word games are rather less common these days than in their most prolific period, but if you're going to build one the Wii U seems like prime real estate for doing so. uWordsmith takes advantage of the GamePad to create a simple yet snappy style of wordplay, but some setbacks make it less than letter perfect. Three modes exist in the...

Key WayForward Director is Bringing His Solo Project to Wii U

Risky move?

It's not uncommon for creative minds at studios to strike out on their own. With limited budgets and resources, companies are sometimes hesitant to take big risks on games that don't necessarily sound like a profitable idea.

Donkey Kong Country Returns...To Wii U

It's on like Donkey Kong. Again.

The second Wii re-release has arrived on the European eShop, and it's a doozy. Are you ready for Donkey Kong Country Returns? As we have come to expect from Retro Studios, they knocked it out of the park with a game that apes (pun intended) the original SNES trilogies' gameplay, but is it worth revisiting on Wii U?...

Earlier this week we reported on an upcoming Wii U title inspired by Minecraft, in this case developed by Cypronia and called Cube Life: Island Survival.
