    NoA sure stretched out that announcement

    The Nintendo Download update isn't always gospel - today's North American update didn't mention Stretchmo, but it's now available to download for free on the 3DS eShop; it's called Fullblox in Europe and is also available in that region. The latest free-to-play dalliance

  • Out Today Rune Factory 4 Finally Arrives in Europe

    We dig it

    Today's European Nintendo Download Update is one of the most crowded in recent memory, with six new downloads on 3DS, two on Wii U (including a Virtual Console release) and a ludicrous number of discounts.

    Triple the fun

    It's great being a Nintendo fan in Europe these days isn't it? Nowadays we normally get games at the same time as our cousins across the pond.

    It's arm-less fun

    Rayman Legends is released today in North America, and it arrived in Europe on 30th August.

  • Out Now The Cave's Exploration Begins on North American Wii U eShop
