As convenient as digital downloads are, there's something to be said for a good old-fashioned physical bit of something you can hold aloft with confidence and shout 'I own this game'. That's no doubt exactly the thought process found in the minds behind Super Rare Games', who are bringing smaller titles from the eShop and birthing them...
A box of delights
As long as YouTube videos have been the behemoth of entertainment that they are, videos of people opening boxes full of stuff has undeniably been the zenith of perfection through this particular artistic medium. The smell of the tape, the thrill of that first flap swinging open to birth its sweet contents; yes, there's nothing like...
So we may have been beaten to it by some naughty people but that hasn't made us any less excited about unboxing the Switch here at Nintendo Life Towers. We got our best man on the job - the one and only Alex Olney - and tasked him with making the entire process as thrilling as possible. Have a watch and let us know what you think about the...
Da da da daaaaa!
It's not long now until The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild hits store shelves and many of you dedicated Zelda fans will no doubt have preordered the limited edition. But - quote Brad Pitt - what's in the box? Thankfully Zelda series director Eiji Aonuma is at hand to do the world's first unboxing video for us. In addition to...
Once again McDonald's and Nintendo have joined forces in the UK to bring Super Mario to the fast food giant's range of boxed meals for children. So we saddled up our green dinosaurs and rode over to our local establishment to see these things for ourselves. Make sure you check out the video above, which is sort of the whole...
A Linkle between consoles
Hyrule Warriors Legends allows those lacking a Wii U to enjoy the ludicrous combat and unwavering demise of thousands of usually evil creatures, and if you can look past some of the graphical limitations and performance issues when on an original 3DS, it's a ruddy cathartic way to spend a few hours at a time. But if your...
Wolf Link amiibo as standard
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD has a limited edition of sorts, although for some reason the box doesn't describe it so. Nevertheless we've done out best to crack open this box of tricks and see what's inside. We managed to get our hands on the EU version to the surprise of no one, which comes bundled with the...
Oh, brave Sir Robin
Bravely Second: End Layer, the sequel to the wildly acclaimed Bravely Default is due out in Europe in just a few short days; North America will have to wait until April, but if our review is anything to go by it'll be definitely worth the wait. Until all is revealed, why not take a look at what you can discover in the Deluxe...
Home is were the hearth is
Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer is already out in North America but Europe will have to wait until the 2nd October. In the mean time why not kick back and enjoy this short unboxing we've produced of the limited edition New Nintendo 3DS XL based around the game?

It's the Happy Boobs edition
Senran Kagura Burst proved to be quite a divisive title, with some claiming it was harmless titillation and others finding the content of the game to be derogatory to women. Things don't appear to have changed much with SENRAN KAGURA 2: Deep Crimson and when we interviewed Producer Kenichirō Takaki at E3 this
What's in the box?
Further promoting the many adventures of everyone's favourite Italian plumber after Luigi, McDonald's has once again begun giving away toys in the Super Mario vein with its child-focused brand of Happy Meals, much in the same way they did last year. We delve into the box of supposed joy to uncover what awaits inside its cardboard...
Hands on with the limited edition bundle
The announcement of the New Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Edition promotion was a pleasant and unexpected surprise this week, offering European consumers -- traditionally the red-haired stepchildren of Nintendo's fandom -- the chance to get their grubby hands on the latest 3DS model before its official launch in...

Watch in awe as we remove and refit a face plate
We've got the New Nintendo 3DS in the office right now and in-between gazing at its rock-solid 3D screen and fondling its nipple-like C-Stick, we somehow found the time to record a special unboxing and hands-on video, which you can view below. The new console — currently only available in Japan —...
Be careful someone doesn't run off with your copy
Happy Mario Kart 8 launch day, everybody! To celebrate this momentous event, we've decided to do an unboxing video for the Limited Edition version of the game, which features an accursed blue shell and — of course — a copy of the game itself. It's rather good, as you'll know if you've already...
An unboxing of epic proportions
How time flies. It only seems like yesterday that we reported that Prima Games — famed for its detailed strategy guides — would be releasing a collectable box set containing strategy guides for several recent Zelda titles, including Twilight Princess,
