Nintendogs and Cats for 3DS

Snuggle up with new pets on 3DS

Nintendogs is a worldwide phenomenon, having sold close to 25m units in its lifetime. Shigeru Miyamoto has often spoken of his desire to add felines to the mix, and now he's finally getting his wish as Nintendo announces Nintendogs + Cats on the way for 3DS. Like most of the titles for 3DS at E3 this isn't available in playable form, and no videos

This Kirby Advert Looks Familiar

Epic Yarn style traced back to Japanese commercial

There's no doubt that Kirby's Epic Yarn is one of the stand-out titles of this year's E3 for Nintendo: our man Corbie Dillard has played it and rates it as one of the finest games available to play so far. Until the game nestles in our Wiis the rest of us can only sit back and watch the trailer, but you might also want to check out this rather cool..

3DS Will be Out Within 12 Months

Early next year at the latest

We were all expecting to find out solid release dates and pricing for Nintendo's next generation handheld, but its press conference made no mention of when we'll be able to get our hands on the 3DS.

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.

First Impressions: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

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. So you can imagine the dirty looks I received when I was whisked up to the VIP area of the booth to sit and play the Nintendo..

Reader Questions - Day One

You ask, we tell.

Well Day 1 of E3 was a busy one, and Nintendo came out with guns blazing during its Press Conference. Its booth was easily the busiest and there were enormous lines of media members waiting to get their hands on the Nintendo first-party hardware and software. While I don't tour Nintendo's booth until later this afternoon, I was fortunate enough to get some hand on time with the..

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..

Check out this extremely brief video interview conducted by the Nintendo E3 Network to gauge..
