Wii Party U Can Be Downloaded Digitally Down Under

New title is available on the Australian Wii U eShop

Wii Party U was released last week, but it bypassed the North American and European Wii U eShops and is available exclusively as a physical purchase at the time of writing. It has been assumed that the game's reliance on physical items — such as a Wii Remote and GamePad stand — has resulted in...

Alien Haters Rejoice, You'll Be Able To Blast Xenomorphs In Call Of Duty: Ghosts

New online Extinction mode is teased

Call of Duty has featured a 'Zombies' mode in the past few entries, but it looks like Activision is going to change things up a little for Call of Duty: Ghosts. Instead of slaying the undead, you'll be facing opponents from a planet far, far away. According to leaked screenshots — and a post on the Call of...

Rayman Legends Lands With A Thud At Japanese Retail

Less than 1,500 copies sold

Rayman Legends was supposed to be a Wii U exclusive, but Ubisoft changed its mind and delayed the title to accommodate a multiplatform release. However, the wacky epic remains unique to Nintendo's console in at least one region: Japan. Sadly, it would appear that game hasn't been a hit with Japanese players. Although it...

Shigeru Miyamoto Clarifies That Local Multiplayer is Still the Priority for Mario

"The answer to this question might change in ten years time"

Super Mario 3D World is shaping up as a title of significant potential, and certainly far more than a quick and easy HD upgrade on 3DS title Super Mario 3D Land. It may share branding and some common items with the portable title, but is also unique in its own ways and, unlike that 3DS...

Because you can never have too many Mario 3D World videos

We were recently able to go hands-on with Super Mario 3D World, and found the game to be a little bit special. As if to confirm this, earlier today we posted a video from Nintendo which shows just how downright fun the game is. Just in case you're still not convinced that this will be

Shigeru Miyamoto Doesn't Rule Out Additional HD Remakes and a Return to the Mario Galaxy Style

Naturally, new software is the priority

With the recent release of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, the continuing absence of the rumoured and desired GameCube library on the Wii U Virtual Console, and the ongoing and lingering sense that the Wii in HD would have been extra-special, it seems Nintendo is considering future opportunities to...

Nintendo Shows Off Super Mario 3D World Stages and the Madness of Multiplayer

To troll or not to troll

Just recently we published our preview of Super Mario 3D World, and rather liked what we played. Our experiences so far give us optimism that it'll stack up in single and multiplayer; naturally the latter will be suitably chaotic but, potentially, a huge amount of fun. Nintendo of America's latest Nintendo Minute video...

Super Mario 3D World

A brave new world

Some things in life are unavoidable. Death, taxes, and disappointing Wii U sales in its first nine months of life. Nintendo has a plan for the rest of 2013, however, which is encouraging for its fans — we've had the enthusiast's favourite The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, and soon we'll have the return of styles and...

Andre Agassi's got "mad skillz" (alright, we added the z)

Wii Party U arrives in stores on 25th October — at the time of writing it's not appeared on the eShop — and Nintendo will naturally push it as the game of choice for families interested in a Wii U. With hardware and Wii MotionPlus software bundles, it's likely to be targeted as a...

Super Ubie Land Will Recieve Another Name Change Before Hitting The Wii U eShop

What's in a name, anyway?

16-bit icons stick together

We recently reported on a Kickstarter campaign to make a new version of Boogerman, a gross 16-bit platformer which originally appeared on the Sega Mega Drive / Genesis back in the '90s. The creators are seeking $375,000 to fund the project and have raised just over $24,000 so far, with 27 days remaining. They'll no doubt...
