  • News Glory Be! Pachter Actually Has Something Nice to Say About 3DS

    Analyst must have gotten out of bed the right side this morning

    Every time Nintendo does or doesn't do anything, well-regarded analyst Michael Pachter almost always has something snide to say about it. The man has forged a career out of shooting down new projects and pouring scorn over potentially exciting games. It seems, though, that when it comes to the 3DS, he's actually quite impressed: The..

After spending a bit of time with the game, it's clear that it continues the tradition of beautiful oriental-style artwork and scenery, not to mention the same unique gameplay of the original Okami release. Since the game is being..

  • E3 2010 First Impressions: Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light

    Something old and something new

    With so many great games on the E3 show floor, it was difficult to find the time to get in some solid playing time on them all. But of all the titles I was fortunate enough to get to play during the E3 show, it was Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light that I found myself going back to time and time again whenever I had a free moment in between booth visits. I think I..

  • E3 2010 First Impressions: Donkey Kong Country Returns

    Nintendo's famous ape is back and better than ever!

    When Rare developed the original Donkey Kong Country title for the Super Nintendo console, many were in awe of the impressively-rendered graphics they had managed to syphon out of the Super Nintendo's 16-bit hardware.

    Not feeling it...

    After the rip-roaring success that was Nintendo’s showing at E3 this year, you might have assumed that Miyamoto would be relaxing by a pool somewhere imagining the 3DS printing glorious 3D money. Not so, as Gizmodo’s Mark Wilson discovered when developing his holiday snaps from E3. While innocently dancing about like a kid tanked up on Sunny D playtesting Microsoft’s Kinect,..

  • E3 2010 First Impressions: Kirby's Epic Yarn

    We take Nintendo's newest Kirby title for a spin

    In the weeks leading up to the E3 show, we all heard the rumours of a new Kirby game being possibly in development so it should come as no real shock that one actually materialised during Nintendo's Press Conference.

    Snuggle up with new pets on 3DS

    Friends list, sports updates and potentially even achievements

    Samus's latest on the move

    Some things in the world of gaming never get old: stomping Goombas, matching gems, eating Octoroks. Here's one more for the list: watching this new Metroid: Other M trailer. Showing off less action and more exploration than previous trailers, it certainly looks like the game is shaping up nicely, with great cutscenes and a...

    Brush with destiny

    We got hands on with Nintendo's flagship E3 title.

    If there's one first-party game that's getting most of the attention at Nintendo's E3 booth, it's got to be Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword with the line to play it snaking around the entire Nintendo booth several times.

    Miyamoto assures everyone it's on the way

  • E3 2010 PilotWings Resort Set to Soar on 3DS

    Yes, there will be jetpacks

    Time to date yourself, PilotWings fans: it's been 14 years since the series last saw a brand-new entry. That was PilotWings 64 in 1996, launching alongside the Nintendo 64. Why, some of you may not have even been alive then. But you're alive now (we think), and along with the announcement of the 3DS came the reveal of a new title in the series: PilotWings Resort. Taking..

    We've already read a few of Corbie's first thoughts on the 3DS, but we have a feeling you'd be much happier hearing them come straight from his mouth.

  • E3 2010 Dead or Alive 3D

    More in your face than ever. You know what we mean.

    Not only is 3DS set to receive some Super Street Fighter IV action in three-dimensions, notorious (but actually rather good underneath) beat 'em up Dead or Alive is heading to the console as well. Two fighting games for one Nintendo handheld might just be a record, you know. With series stalwarts Ryu Hayabusa, Ayane and Kasumi already confirmed..

  • E3 2010 Kingdom Hearts 3DS

    We knew about Re:coded, but this is new

    And so the great E3 2010 content marathon continues with a few short but sweet shots of Square Enix and Disney's crossover Kingdom Hearts, heading to 3DS in the near future. The official announcement merely confirms it as an entry in the Kingdom Hearts franchise, failing to clarify whether it will be a remake of an existing title – something we've seen a..

    The struggle between apes and plumbers continues

    You'd have thought these two could have settled their differences by now, but the long-standing rivalry between Mario and Donkey Kong continues to boil, with Mario vs Donkey Kong: Miniland Mayhem for DS the latest title to pit the two against each other.

  • E3 2010 Kirby's Epic Yarn

    Kirby's journey to the Wii ends in a twist, now with trailer!

    Kirby’s debut on the Wii has been a long, confounding process. In fact, it dates back to the waning days of the GameCube, when a trailer of an untitled Kirby game emerged, with a “2.5-D” sidescrolling style, a la Kirby 64, and abilities, co-op and movesets reminiscent of Kirby Super...

  • E3 2010 More Third Party Games Unveiled

    A Boy and His Blob, Sonic, Contra?!

    We know your poor hearts can't take much more excitement following the revelation of the 3DS, its already-amazing catalogue of titles and the rest of the E3 hullabaloo that, let's face it, has been Nintendo's best show in years.

Well, those same fans are about to be made very happy as Paper Mario is confirmed for 3DS with these first screenshots. Although the flat graphical style may not spring...

  • E3 2010 Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition for 3DS

    Start practicing those 720s on a DS D-pad

    For a long time, Nintendo fans have had to turn to other systems to keep up with the Street Fighter series, but the current entry in Capcom's genre-defining franchise is making its way to the 3DS. As with several of the system's releases, there are only a few screenshots on Nintendo's website to go by, but from what can be seen, it holds up favourably in..

  • E3 2010 Star Fox 64 3D for 3DS

    Jeez Laweez, what is that?! Portable Star Fox 64?

    Nintendo's E3 website has confirmed a host of upcoming 3DS titles and among them is a graphical update of the classic Star Fox 64, known as Lylat Wars in Europe.

    3D zombies? Yes please!

    Gamers wanting a new Resident Evil game that's closer to its third-person roots could very well get their wish granted as Capcom unveils the latest instalment in the franchise at E3 2010.

  • E3 2010 Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3D for 3DS

    At least the "3D" designation fits in more smoothly here

    The game announcements just keep coming. Next up is the first Metal Gear game for a Nintendo system since Twin Snakes hit the GameCube. Not much is clear about the game, including its title: Nintendo's site calls it Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3D, while other sources have tacked the subtitle...

    Breaking news: classic title on the way to 3DS

    StarFox 64, Kid Icarus, Animal Crossing, Mario Kart and Resident Evil for the 3DS might sound like an impressive line-up, but do you know what it's missing? A splash of Zelda. Well, here comes a little-known title called Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, heading to your 3DS. That's right: one of Link's greatest-ever adventures is heading to 3DS,..

    E3 2010 might be remembered for the big names associated with Nintendo but let's not forget another big player in the company-mascot game.

    First screenshots of the life sim

    Rather like Retro Studios' stab at revitalising Donkey Kong, this is another rumour from last week that turned out true: Animal Crossing is heading to 3DS, as these screenshots prove. Although the core graphical styling is unchanged from previous outings, the graphical improvement over the DS's Animal Crossin

    All the news, all the facts straight from E3. UPDATED: Corbie's thoughts in!

    UPDATE: Corbie, our man at E3, has just been in touch with his first thoughts on the 3DS: Played the 3DS in person and it's unreal. The level of depth and clarity on the screen is incredible.

    We all know the buzz around Nintendo’s announcement of the 3DS is reaching fever pitch, but it would be foolish to write off its current DS hardware: DSi is barely a year old, so there’s bound to be a lot of titles to convince DS owners not to abandon the system just yet. Returning...

  • News Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light Gets E3 Trailer

  • News Third Parties May Reveal Their Own 3DS Games at E3

    Nintendo apparently giving thumbs-up to proceed

    So far we've heard plenty of talk from third parties about how interesting the 3DS looks but naturally nobody's been able to say "look at our game, it's three-dimensional." The general expectation was that Nintendo would announce the 3DS and its own titles but that third-party games may take a while to surface, but according to the latest..

  • News Epic Mickey May Get a New Lick of Paint at E3

    Rumours suggest graphics could change

    It's been a few months since we last heard anything about Epic Mickey, the Warren Spector-led reinvention of the little mouse, but apparently that's for good reason. According to the latest Internet rumours, we could be seeing a very different Mickey emerge at E3 this month. Whilst the original artwork showed off a dark, lean look, the first screenshots had a..

    Although Reggie Fils-Aime likes to shoot the breeze about rival hardware, it's something of a surprise to hear him speak about upcoming Nintendo machines, but in a recent interview with Businessweek he acknowledged the existence of the 3DS and its role in Nintendo's future. Although predictably very little...

  • News MotionPlus Nabs A New Exclusive: Zelda Wii

    Producer hopes to bring a playable build to E3

    Wii Sports Resort is great and all, but if you've stopped playing it for whatever reason then odds are good you've tossed its accompanying MotionPlus dongle into a drawer, waiting for a good reason to pop it back in. Sure, there's Ubisoft's Red Steel 2 on the horizon, but it's not everyone's cup of Kool-Aid. Something that may be, though, is the..
