A mix of old and new
This week offers yet more catchup titles, consisting of games released in North America within the past few weeks, as well as the last few months. There's also two new games, however, both of which are for DSiWare and both of which are new instalments in two series which have been going for a while now. WiiWare: Hydroventure...
Nintendo serves up a certain ace
It's the week of E3, and what better way to celebrate than by finally releasing another N64 Virtual Console game? And an extremely well-liked one, at that? WiiWare gets one great and one good game as well, but DSiWare seems fairly uninteresting this time. WiiWareAnt Nation (700pts - Konami) -- A simulation title from Konami in which you manage a colony of ants, this..
This Hanabi Festival's final game, with some nice things on WiiWare and DSiWare as well.
As previously announced by Nintendo, the Hanabi Festival wasn't over just yet. This week brings us one last import game, and it's quite a highly anticipated one, at that. They could've just left it at that and called it a day, but they've also added a second, non-import Virtual Console game, just to keep the..
One last Hanabi surprise.
Nintendo almost had everybody fooled. They only announced four games for release in this month's Hanabi Festival, and then proceeded to release all of them in two weeks, despite Hanabi Festivals usually lasting three or four weeks. But if you take a look at the Wii Shop Channel right now, you can see that they have one more...
God of War producer would like to re-design his flagship series with more “Zelda 64” elements
David Jaffe, producer of the hit PlayStation-exclusive series God of War has revealed on his Twitter account that if he were to remake the series now he would like to include more elements inspired by “Zelda 64.” If I were to do GOW now, I would do GOW meets ZELDA 64 structure. Much more..
As announced, four new games are new available.
Well, no surprises here! All four games released today were already announced beforehand. Super Smash Bros. is the first game in Nintendo's massively popular fighting franchise. There's a total of 12 characters and 9 stages, which is obviously not much when compared to the content of Melee and Brawl, but it's still fairly fun. The question is, is..
If you want to relive the original Nintendo fighting game, you can do so in just 2 days.
The official website for Official Nintendo Magazine has revealed all plans for this Friday's European Wii and DSi updates. On the VC side of things, Europeans will finally be able to download Super Smash Bros., the game that started it all. Japan got it back in January, before even getting Majora's Mask - But..
The 300th VC game joins two WiiWare games and a single DSiWare release.
Many people saw it coming - The amount of Virtual Console games available in North America was nearing 300, so it was logical to assume that Nintendo of America was saving Majora's Mask in order to make it game number 300. That turns out to be true - The Legend of Zelda:...
UK magazine EDGE charts the grim days of the 1990s
Highly respected UK video game magazine EDGE has posted up a feature on its website about the fall of Nintendo in the mid ‘90s. It’s been penned by veteran journo Douglass Perry (who actually wrote for Edge’s US sister publication, Next Generation, which is now sadly defunct) and focuses mainly on the torrid time the company had with its N64..
Those playing the recently released Mario Kart 64 will notice a distinct lack of ghosts.. and, no, I'm not talking about the ones on banshee boardwalk!
It seems that we have the first major Virtual Console issue on our hands, no N64 controller pak support. This problem facing Nintendo is quite a large one- they cannot seem to (or don't see the need to) get the N64 titles to recognize the Wii's..
Europeans can now bag themselves Mario Kart 64 for a mere 1,000 Wii Points.
Nintendo continue to tease us with a dribble of N64 goodness, can't you release them any faster?! "Racing fans are in for an extra special treat today as Mario Kart 64, one of the greatest games in the hugely popular Mario Kart series, is available to download to Wii’s Virtual Console *. Featuring tense racing action..
