    Mecca for Mario Makers

    Super Mario Maker 2 has been out for a couple of days now and we imagine many of you have been feverishly exploring its nooks and crannies. That goes for us here at Nintendo Life Towers, too, as the rest of the team finally get to sample the game firsthand and see exactly what Alex has been excitedly jabbering on about for the...

  • Community Strap In Pilots, We're Looking For Shmup Top Guns

    Are you the top NL shooter head? Time to prove it

    You might have noticed that besides many other things, the Nintendo Switch is becoming quite a treasure trove for shmups both old and new.  Thankfully it seems we're not likely to run out of aliens or evil dictators to shoot down any time soon on Nintendo's current console, so to spice things...

  • Video Gawk At these Incredible Jumping Feats in Super Mario Odyssey

    Now we've all had time to play around with Super Mario Odyssey's moveset, we thought it was about time we gathered some of the ludicrous things you lovely people have been doing with it.

  • Community Your Favourite 3DS Games - Fifth Anniversary Edition

    The results are in

    With the 3DS now being five years old we thought it'd be a good time to reflect on its impressive game library. To do this we asked you to pick your favourite games through the user review feature on the site, covering both retail and eShop releases. It proved to be an interesting experiment, taking into account the sheer size...

  • Community Pick Your Favourite Nintendo 3DS Games - Fifth Anniversary Edition

    Let's do things a little differently

    Though the landmark has already passed in Japan, we're now approaching the fifth anniversary of the 3DS in the West. The first model launched on 25th / 27th March 2011 in Europe and North America, respectively, with the original model focusing much of its sales pitch on autostereoscopic 3D. That feature would...

    It's Super Mario Maker day, and it's no doubt going to pop up in a lot of articles; actually, we make no apology for that. It's earned a rare 10 in our review, and is a reminder of many of the qualities that have made Mario an iconic part of Nintendo and gaming history. It's a big deal. A vital...

This one is a code-based tournament, to give it that community feel, so below are...

  • Play Time for Another Nintendo Life Community GP - 12th July

    Get ready!

    A while ago we had our first NLife Community GP, which allowed us to take each other on in the terrific Mario Kart 8. There's been a lot going on since that last tournament but now there's no excuse; it's time to do it again. So, let's do this. It's a code-based tournament — this is for the community after all — with all the details...

  • News Summer Games Done Quick Gearing Up For 22nd June

    For those that are fans of speedrun marathons, the Games Done Quick events are major highlights, during which money is raised for charity and we occasionally see record breaking performances. The Summer event is almost upon us, kicking off on 22nd June at 11am Pacific / 2pm Eastern / 7pm UK / 8pm CET. As normal...

  • Play Mario Kart 8 in the NLife Community GP - Today!

    Get your boosting going

    We may have the Nintendo Life GP on the go around the clock, but we thought it was high time, a week after release, for a good old-fashioned community race day in Mario Kart 8. Yesterday we asked for your votes on the tournament criteria, which has left us with the following: 150cc Grand Prix

  • Play Mario Kart 8 With Nintendo Life in a 10 Hour Community Tournament

    Bring it on

    As you may have seen recently, we've opened the round-the-clock Nintendo Life GP in Wii U racer Mario Kart 8, and since its launch two days ago hundreds of players have jumped in for some races. That's a rolling tournament with no real rules or winners, it's just for fun. We've decided that an old-fashioned Community session is needed,...

  • Play Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate With Nintendo Life - The First Hunt

    It's on

    Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate may have been available for nearly a year on the Wii U and 3DS, but there are still plenty of gamers that enjoy going on the hunt on a regular basis. Quite a few of us at Nintendo Life fall into that category, which is why we announced the first community hunting night earlier this week. Those beasts are strutting...

  • Vote Pick Your Favourite NES Games

    We hadn't forgotten

    A little while ago the Nintendo Life team voted for its favourite NES games, which included plenty of classics and closely-fought tied positions. Our ultimate winner was Super Mario Bros. 3, and at the end of the feature we promised that you, the community, would have the chance to vote for your own top 10 NES games. We...

  • Play Mario Kart 7 with Nintendo UK - Round 2

    Kicks off from 7-9pm UK time

    At the weekend Nintendo UK invited racers to some rounds of Mario Kart 7, though without a huge amount of advance warning. Nevertheless, the event — which should be open to worldwide players, we imagine — clearly went down well, as another official community get-together is confirmed for today between 7-9pm UK time;...

  • Play Mario Kart 7 with Nintendo Life

    Start your engines

    It's been too long, so much so that we may need to renew our licenses, but it's time to take to the track for some Nintendo Life community races in Mario Kart 7. We all like to think we're the next Sebastian Vettel with a red shell in hand, so now we have to prove it. Yesterday we asked you which rules you want in both our both...

  • Play Mario Kart 7 Community Rooms - Choose The Rules

    It's back

    Last year we had a couple of rather fun community sessions playing Mario Kart 7, where the Nintendo Life community did battle with each other and some of the humble writing team. They were blood-baths of shell and banana skin-related tumbles, while tears were shed along with some choice curse words as podium places were lost. It was...

  • Play Mario Kart 7 with Nintendo Life - Today! Again!

    Race or battle, you choose

    This week's been dominated by Wii U, with plenty of news, footage and excitement for Nintendo gamers. After all of the hype we need to relax, kick back, and go shell-crazy in Mario Kart 7, of course. We want to do this with you, so today is the second Nintendo Life Mario Kart 7 Community Event; this time, it's serious...

  • Play Mario Kart 7 Community Rooms - You Decide

    Let's go round again

    A week ago we hosted a Mario Kart 7 community event, where you joined us for some shell throwing, banana dodging mayhem. The community room we used expanded from four players to over 180 by the end of the night, and we loved racing against you all and chatting in the comments and on our Twitter page. Naturally, this isn't going...

  • Play Mario Kart 7 with Nintendo Life - Today!

    Start your engines

    Once upon a time Nintendo Life set up Communities in Mario Kart 7, and these rooms were full of happy 3DS owners enjoying some online races. The passage of time was cruel, however, and the official community room became almost empty, with just a few stalwarts keeping it going and some keen racers meeting up via the forums. We've...

  • News Nintendo Life Now Has a Google+ Page

    Roll out the barrel!

    Always ones to be fashionably late to the party, we've set up an official Nintendo Life Google+ page. If you're more a Googler than a Twitterer, you can add our page to your Circle to stay up to date with the latest Nintendo-related news and reviews. There's also the chance of digging through embarrassing photos of the team, so...

  • News Happy New Year from Nintendo Life!

    Here's to 2012

    It's the very first day of 2012, and we want to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy New Year. 2011 was our best year yet — we were featured in the 3DS eShop, teamed up with Eurogamer and even won a Mario Kart 7 medal — but we wouldn't be able to do any of this without the support of a great number of people

  • News Happy New Year from Nintendo Life!

    Here's to what 2011 brings

    2010 was a fantastic year for Nintendo gamers, with Super Mario Galaxy 2, Shantae: Risky's Revenge and countless other top titles making their way to consoles in 2010. It was also a great year for Nintendo Life, during which we attended Media Summits, 3DS hands-on events and, for the first time,
