  • News ARMS Version 3.1.0 Is Now Available

    A new stage! Sort of…

    The latest notable news in ARMS was the recent addition of Lola Pop—a brand new, clown-themed fighter—alongside an associated stage, new ARMS, and various balancing tweaks. Nintendo sure isn’t slowing down with the updates though, as it’s already prepped and released a new patch that makes a series of notable tweaks...

  • News My Nintendo in North America Adds Free Games to its Gold Rewards

    Zen Pinball 3D! Runner2! More!

    A few days ago, we reported on My Nintendo in Europe adding four free games—two on 3DS, two on Wii U—to its Gold Rewards, something that has been much requested in the past months. While it may be that many decried the specific games being offered, it at least shows that there’s some effort on Nintendo’s side...

  • News LEGO Worlds Just Got a New Update

    Performance changes! Online! A new icon!

    Suffice to say, we weren’t all too impressed with LEGO Worlds when it came out a few weeks ago, as the subpar performance and janky gameplay made it an experience that simply wasn’t all that much fun to play. Even so, we held off on giving it a score until the full experience could be delivered—an...

  • News Super Grand Prix Mode Is Coming to Super Bomberman R

    The gift that keeps on giving

    Super Bomberman R was one of the highlights of the Switch’s launch lineup, offering a retro inspired experience that perfectly sells the concept of the Switch and its multiplayer options. Since then, Konami has kept the game updated to keep interest high, putting out a few free content updates that expand and polish...

  • News 3DS OS Version 11.6.0-39 Is Now Available for Download

    11.5.0-38 is so last year

    With each passing day, it seems that Nintendo Switch becomes an increasingly more important part of Nintendo’s plans, while the 3DS proportionally becomes more and more irrelevant. The release of Metroid: Samus Returns helps stem this, but there’s still a lingering feeling that the platform is on its last legs. Perhaps...

  • News Here’s the Full List of Changes Made by ARMS Version 3.0.0

    You'll float, too

    ARMS is still ticking along just fine, seeing a regular amount of content additions and balancing tweaks every few weeks. The big news with the current update is that the new fighter, Lola Pop, is finally being added to the game, but there’s a number of other additions and tweaks that have been made, too. Alongside Lola, we’ve...

  • Exclusive Here's What's In Today's Free FAST RMX REMIX Update

    Mixing things up

    FAST RMX was one of our favourite Switch launch titles; it's pretty much everything we wanted from an F-Zero game, but without Captain Falcon and the gang. The lovely folks over at Shin'en Multimedia just got in touch to remind us that the REMIX UPDATE is coming to FAST RMX later today, which will add 6 new tracks...

  • News Overcooked: Special Edition Update Brings Silky-Smooth Framerate

    A little longer in the oven works wonders

    We rather liked Overcooked: Special Edition when it brought chaotic co-op cookery to the Switch back in July. It's been very popular on other platforms previously of course, but there is nothing like playing on the Switch on-the-go in tabletop mode with a friend, is there? Unfortunately, there...

  • News Splatoon 2 Version 1.3.0 Is Now Live

    At last, the Tri-Slosher nerf!

    Splatoon 2 has already seen a number of changes since launch, adding in new stages and content alongside some much needed tweaks to balancing the greater metagame. It’s been a bit since the last update—although we have naturally seen the addition of some new stages and weapons, periodically—and now Nintendo has...

  • News FAST RMX Version 1.3 Goes Live on 13th September

    Bring on the free DLC

    FAST RMX was a standout title in the Switch’s launch library, carrying on the dream of F-Zero with its high intensity futuristic racing. Since then, the game has been occasionally tweaked with new updates that add in new content and extra features, and the latest of those has just received a release date. FAST RMX version...

  • News Super Mario Maker Gets A Long-Overdue Update On Wii U

    To make for a "pleasant playing experience"

    Super Mario Maker was one of our favourite Wii U games; Nintendo clearly invested great time, resources and thought into making it greater than its core concept. The user interface, the creativity of the tools that feed the player's imagination and the overall polish are a testament to the development...

  • News Nintendo Switch OS Version 3.0.2 Is Now Live

    Behold the splendor!

    It’s been quite a fair bit of time since Nintendo last updated the Nintendo Switch software with *gasp* new features beyond that all-important stability that we simply cannot get enough of in any Nintendo console. Nintendo has heard your cries, and has opted to grace the raving masses with yet another glorious software update...

  • News Super Mario Run Is Back on the iOS App Store

    Mario was just taking a lunch break

    Earlier today, we reported on the mysterious disappearance of Super Mario Run from the iOS App Store, a move which didn’t have any explanation by either Apple or Nintendo. Perhaps it had something to do with a bug in the game which warranted its removal or maybe there was some kind of problem on the side of the...
