Don't dock it at all, basically
Just like a real tablet!
Put it in a microwave
If you picked up a Nintendo 3DS XL recently then chances are you're currently treating it like a piece of treasured jewellery, delicately laying it on a soft cushion when it's not in use and generally ensuring no harm comes to it. However, dovetastic - presenter of the YouTube Microwave Show - had no such ideas. He took his...
High seas havoc
Ubisoft has released footage of Assassin's Creed III which shows off the highly-anticipated naval warfare component of the game. A first for a series where contact with water previously meant instant death for some unlucky assassins, this section of the game looks set to add a bit a variety to proceedings and break up the endless...
A moody adventure
After showing you a rather quirky take on finding a real life Master Sword yesterday, today brings another live action Zelda production onto our radar. In terms of approach, it's a very different proposition, with a very literal and moody representation of Link, Epona and accompanying fairy — Navi, it seems. This one is from...
Expect the unexpected
For gamers infatuated with iconic moments in gaming, who also happen to have a camera and a bit of film-making expertise, there's only one place to go: YouTube. While there's plenty of appalling rubbish on everyone's favourite video-sharing site, there's also some good work that re-creates memorable sequences with a twist. One...
Only 7000 notes used
As Mario is, arguably, the biggest icon in video game history, it's little surprise that he's the subject of various fan-projects and videos. One new video, posted yesterday on YouTube by user FinalCutKing, apparently uses 7000 post-it notes — and a lot of patience — to create a stop-motion video that sees Mario platforming...
That's right. Plants.
3DS will get its best video series since Threediots at the end of this month when Nintendo and Atlantic Productions release a 90-second clip from Kingdom of Plants 3D. The time-lapse video was filmed over the course of a year and gives a "revealing and fascinating new look at plant life", apparently. You can check it out for...
We've seen some great Nintendo fan films over the years; films that made us think "if only". This short film, Metroid: Encounter at Ceres Colony, wants to be next. As the name suggests, the short takes Super Metroid as its inspiration but mixes in some elements from the Metroid Prime Trilogy too. Serious Samus fans will also enjoy other...
The Last Story finally hits North America this month, so it's a good time to learn a little more about the game's development. This documentary by French site Sidekick.fr explains more about Mistwalker's background, The Last Story's original concept as a much darker game called Lost World and more. It's well researched and slick, and...
Positives to tempt us all
It's been less than a week since we first clapped eyes on 3DS XL, and there have been doubts for some about the potential positives of the system. From a technical perspective one concern has been the graphical fidelity of the original resolution on a bigger screen, alongside general curiosity about how the system feels to...
Serene mode engaged
Angry that Animal Crossing won't reach Europe until 2013 and North America until... well, who knows when? Watch this new Japanese trailer for the game and all your stress might just melt away or, perhaps, become more strongly amplified. The video shows tonnes of new touches like solar panels to install outside, new shops and...
Nintendo's E3 showing this year gave plenty of stage time to some less familiar faces: Katsuya Eguchi and Scott Moffitt both spoke at length about Wii U and 3DS respectively, while president Satoru Iwata — traditionally the conference mainstay — mostly stayed behind the scenes to tweet. This video is probably his finest ever...
Who was the star performer?
As the booths at E3 are packed up and taken away, Nintendo's teams and key figures will be going back home for a well-earned rest. For Satoru Iwata, Shigeru Miyamoto and Reggie Fils-Aime, it'll also be a time to reflect on their respective performances and whether the company as a whole succeeded at the event. Nintendo's...
Wii U's best looking title?
Ubisoft's got eight games on the way to Wii U, but few look as beautiful as Rayman Legends. Don't believe us? Here's a five minute gameplay video running in 720p. Rayman Legends is exclusive to Wii U and supports five players: four using Wii Remotes and one using the Wii U GamePad to play as Murphy, a helpful little chap...
Believe in your soul
New Super Mario Bros. 2 was one of just three 3DS games shown off during Nintendo's E3 conference, but the publisher clearly hopes it'll set a new gold standard as the precious metal is all over the place. The new Golden Flower power-up gives Mario the ability to fire golden balls that turn blocks and enemies into coins, and...
Screenshots and video, we got it!
Those already familar with New Super Mario Bros. Wii will know exactly what to expect from the upcoming New Super Mario Bros. U for Wii U. Aside from the usual multiplayer mayhem Mario and his friends will enjoy a spot of flying squirrel suit gliding and messing about with Baby Yoshis, and all in glorious 1080p...
What did we make of it?
Nintendo's E3 2012 press conference is over, and our editorial team James Newton, Tom Whitehead and Mike Mason sat down to dissect and discuss the biggest announcements and speak freely about what we made of it. What's your take on the conference — did it exceed your expectations or leave you cold?
Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed III was one of the publisher's biggest titles of its E3 conference this year, and while we didn't see any Wii U-specific footage the game is shaping up very nicely indeed. The trailer might all be CGI but it should give you a taste of what to expect from Connor's trip onto Wii U later this year. It's one of eight...
Want to watch Ubisoft's Wii U games? Then keep it here as we bring you the live video of its E3 press conference. Can't get YouTube working for whatever reason? We'll have updates for you on new games, technology and anything else interesting Ubisoft has to show. Hopefully there's no Mr Caffeine. Ubisoft's conference is just part of the...
Sizing it up
If Nikkei is right, tomorrow we'll see a 3DS console redesign as Nintendo unveils a 3DS console with a 4.5" screen, 1.5 times bigger than the current model. Our editor James Newton and features editor Tom Whitehead — yes, they of the Nintendo Life podcast! — sat down in video form to chat about what the rumour could mean for...
Square Enix's Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance is out next month, but the publisher doesn't want you to forget about it in the upcoming E3 rush, so it's put out a new trailer to keep it fresh in your mind. Mickey, Donald and friends reach Nintendo 3DS in late July, and you can get a taste for their upcoming adventure in the video...
Don't expect much
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow — Mirror of Fate is coming to 3DS, but Konami's not ready to show it off just yet. Instead, as part of its pre-E3 conference, it's released a teaser video promising more next week. When we say 'teaser' video we really mean it: there's not even a snifter of gameplay here, just lots of arty blood...
All a dream
Eyeball-melting speed and glasses-free 3D would be such a happy combination. While Nintendo stays silent on the future of F-Zero, fan Jan Neves has taken the initiative and created a trailer for the smartly named F-Zero 3DX. Footage from F-Zero GX blends with the Blue Falcon flying out of the 3DS top screen. If Nintendo ever does publish...
Three months ago we brought you a Japanese trailer for Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, and now we bring you the same video in English. You've only got a few more months to wait until Sora and friends land in the West in 3D. Make the wait go quicker by watching the video repeatedly. And no, sadly that isn't Jeff Bridges' real...
Itsu no Ma ni Terebi no more
Since June last year 3DS owners in Japan have had access to Itsu no Ma ni Terebi, a video service that has produced regular and exclusive content via SpotPass. Like the former Wii service Wii no Ma, Nintendo has decided to take the service off the air. In the past year the channel has offered content from Fuji Television...
Before they were famous, of course
Many of you probably know the drill with 'before they were famous' shows, where long-lost advertisements or TV appearances featuring well-known stars are put on display for our amusement. Video game historian Patrick Scott Patterson has compiled a collection of video game commercials featuring some celebrities in...
A bit better than Mode 7
The Star Fox franchise hasn't had a great deal of love recently, the only recent glimmer of hope being Star Fox 64 3D, a remake of the highly regarded Nintendo 64 title. Will Wii U revive the franchise, or was the N64 remake a warmup for a new title on 3DS? Who knows, but we'll always have the power of nostalgia. YouTube...
An epic montage
For gamers of a certain age that grew up in the era of 2D pixel-based platformers and action titles, there are a lot of happy memories of one simple activity: running to the right. Yes, a lot of games did involve some backtracking in the other direction, but the main task was to keep moving right until you'd reached the goal or...
But who's counting?
99seconds is a follow up to 99bullets, but instead of a shooter it's a game of extreme keep away. EnjoyUp has just sent over two new trailers showing the game in action, and it looks like a decent test of skill for those after some intense gaming. There's no release date or price for 99seconds yet, but we'll keep you posted.
Everyone likes a marimba
You're probably thinking you've heard every imaginable variation on every single Super Mario theme, jingle and ditty, but this Super Mario World overworld theme contains a marimba and a melodica. It's also pretty good. The list of instruments in Adam Mormolstein's video might even eclipse the number of levels in Mario's...
A leader of gamers
The video game industry has a very short history, significantly more so than other mediums such as film, yet many gaming figures that were popular in past times are now unknown. Take Donn Nauert, for example. In the first video of a planned series, video game historian Patrick Scott Patterson is compiling footage of prominent...
Start Friday right
The talented folks at long-running webcomic Brawl in the Family have used their 400th strip to celebrate Nintendo's life and times in a catchy tune. From hanafuda cards to Wii U, it crams some good detail into its 3:42 running time and will no doubt get stuck in your head for a good few hours. It also scores bonus points for...
Quite a collection
Like many of us, Campbell Whyte remembers the time when 8-bit graphics were magical, when pixels and tiny sprites evoked wonder and excitement. Unlike us, though, Whyte's also a skilled illustrator, and used his fond NES memories as the basis of the 8 Bit Dreams project. Whyte created an illustration a day for over a year, aiming...
Yes, but is it art?
The team-up between Nintendo and The Louvre sounds good, but what does it look like? A lot like this, in fact. Nintendo released a video of the museum touring application in action and it looks pretty good, with 3D models of sculptures, digital representations of paintings allowing you to zoom in on the fine detail and audio...
When in Rome
The very first Dragon Warrior Monsters is getting a full 3D makeover in the scaly form of Dragon Quest Monsters: Terry's Wonderland 3D to give its full title. Square Enix just released a four minute trailer of the 3DS game, and boy is it full of monsters. Of course, being a Monsters title you're not just battling against the slimy...
It was a dark and stormy night
Shanblue Interactive — the studio behind Magic Destiny: Astrological Games, of course — has lifted the lid on its upcoming WiiWare outing Vampire's Crystals with a new video. The co-op trailer below shows two players racing around, grabbing crystals and avoiding attacks from the hordes of undead. There doesn't seem...
The story of a masterpiece
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time on Nintendo 64 is a definitive game in Nintendo history, though opinions naturally vary on whether it should be regarded as one of the finest games ever produced. Regardless of where you stand on the subject, it undoubtedly revolutionised The Legend of Zelda as a series, bringing it...
Will you marry me, Wyvern Rider?
The release of Fire Emblem: Awakening is getting ever closer in Japan, with European gamers awaiting further clarification on the 'summer 2012' window and North American compatriots eagerly hoping for any news. Now that it's almost arrived in Nintendo's homeland the title has been the subject of an Iwata Asks column,...
What more do you need to know?
It's all in Japanese, but that won't stop you enjoying this video of Fire Emblem: Kakusei (aka Fire Emblem: Awakening), will it? From dialogue and cut scenes to battles and maps, it's got all the daily Fire Emblem nutrition you need. The game's out in Japan next month. Nintendo of Europe has confirmed it'll release the...
Those Samus and Link costumes in Dynasty Warriors Vs. certainly look nice in stills, but how about in motion? Your wish is Tecmo Koei's command. The trailer below shows small snippets of Dynasty Warriors' characters clad in the garb of Nintendo's famous blond/e hero/ine, plus footage of Dead or Alive: Dimensions' Ryu Hayabusa and Ayane...
The only thing better than a Pokémon theme tune? Three Pokémon theme tunes, of course. Nintendo UK's hit the jackpot with this trio of tunes to celebrate the upcoming European release of PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond this Friday. The videos even have lyrics so you can happily sing along to tunes of unbelievable heroism from the...
Romance is alive
Communication freebie Nintendo Letter Box/Swapnote is ideal for sketchy doodles and sharing glorious 3D photos of your dinner, but could it have a higher purpose? Could it be used to bring about a life of blissful matrimony? Yes. The video below is simultaneously the nerdiest and most heartwarming video we've seen all year. Call us...
New video inside
Kid Icarus: Uprising got the lion's share of attention during today's Nintendo Direct broadcasts, with the game's online multiplayer the subject of much discussion. The video below shows most of them in action but if you're more of a reading person — which, as you're on a gaming website, we imagine you might be — there's...
Another Camelot smash hit?
Now we know Mario Tennis Open is out in May it's time to feast your eyes on some fresh gameplay footage, showing off the new multiplayer and touch screen functions. You'll be able to use the 3DS console's built-in gyrometer to move your system around to take a look around the court, though we're not quite sure of the...
In case you were still in any doubt that Code of Princess is the spiritual sequel to legendary SEGA Saturn co-op fighter Guardian Heroes, here's some quick footage of the game's battles in action. Featuring four of the cast of playable characters the movie gives you a short introduction to the chaos of battles, with combos, magic, bombs...
See upcoming games in motion
After announcing a stack of 3DS release dates this week Nintendo of America has now posted 3D trailers of some upcoming titles on the eShop itself. You can download new 3D footage of Kid Icarus: Uprising — out on 23rd March 2012 — as well as Q1 download releases Dillon’s Rolling Western and Sakura Samurai: Art of...
Includes 3D footage of our editor
You'll probably remember that Nintendo Life took the podium at the Mario Kart 7 launch event, but now you can experience that excitement for yourself in the first episode of Nintendo TV, available now in the UK's eShop. The 3D episode features a very brief report on the game's London launch event — where our own editor James Newton came second, of course — as..
More sports videos on the way too
Starting today, there'll be new Eurosport video content coming to 3DS via SpotPass, Nintendo has announced. 3DS owners will be able to download a free Eurosport video application from the eShop that will give them access to weekly videos from the popular WATTS series. All videos will be free. Search for "Eurosport" in the eShop to get the application,..
WiiWare sports sim Soccer Up! is out next Thursday, and if you feel like gathering a few friends around for some holiday season soccer action here's two brief videos showing all the fun you could have. The game supports four-player local play with no need for Nunchuks. It all looks like the kind of silly knockabout football that did the rounds in the 1990s when Sensible Soccer ruled the..
And a brand new gameplay trailer to boot
Goodbye Galaxy Games has announced that its upcoming DSiWare game Flipper 2: Flush the Goldfish is set to be released in Europe on December 29th at a cost of 500 Nintendo Points. You can check out our Flipper 2: Flush the Goldfish preview if you're still on the fence and the game's brand new trailer is below as well for those who are looking for a taste of..
We kicked off the year by reliving 2010's biggest news stories through the wonder of WarioWare D.I.Y., and as we approach the most magical day of the calendar the talented NGamer crew have put together a WarioWare rendition of some of your favourite Christmas movies. The video below puts favourites such as Miracle on 34th Street, Home...
If, like us, you were wowed by the Monster Hunter 4 video Capcom revealed back in September but thought "that can't possibly be accurate" — apparently it can. A recent Iwata Asks interview (via Andriasang) reveals that not only was it real-time footage of the upcoming 3DS game, it was actually played by Capcom staff...
Developer interview inside
Things have been a little quiet on the Animal Crossing 3DS front so far, with Nintendo dropping new information as often as rare furniture falling from a tree. However we now have an officially translated version of a recent developer roundtable, revealing some juicy new details. One of the more interesting updates is the...
Mudds in 3D!
Nintendo has just released the first 3D trailer of Mutant Mudds on the 3DS eShop, so those who've wanted to see how the game looks in 3D, here's your chance. It's a short clip from the first world, but you can see how the different layers look with the 3D depth. You can find the clip in the "Coming Soon to Nintendo eShop"...
Gets ESRB rated as well
Few titles excited us back at E3 in June more than Renegade Kid's upcoming 3DS eShop platformer Mutant Mudds, so to say that we've been keeping an anxious eye on the project over the past few months would be an understatement. Thankfully, Jools Watsham, lead director of Mutant Mudds, has been kind enough to send over the...
Don't soil yourself
North America has already had one Harvest Moon game on 3DS — Harvest Moon 3D: The Tale of Two Towns — but that was really a slightly different version of the DS original rather than a just-for-3DS deal. The console's first original entry in the series is Harvest Moon: First Earth, or Bokujou Monogatari: Hajimari no Daichi in Japanese, and we have a set of videos to show off..
We've got a crush
SEGA's CRUSH3D — the story of an insomniac who compresses three-dimensional space to cure his illness — isn't like other games. That's probably one of the reasons why SEGA just sent over a new trailer showing how you play the game, due out in early 2012. Let the silky-voiced narrator explain (in quite some detail) how to manoeuvre Danny through his nightmarish world, solving..
How did we get here?
3DS platformer Shinobi is the latest entry in one of SEGA's most loved franchises, but if you're new to the whole ninja thing you might find this new history trailer a useful catch-up on the activities of the Musashi clan and evil Zeed. Of course, if you want to know more about the most recent Musashi outing, be sure to read our...
The ultimate crossover chaos
We found out after E3 that there's a Zelda-style level in Super Mario 3D Land, and now we have a video look. As you can see below, the game takes more than a few cues from old-school outings like The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Link's Awakening DX, except with much more Mario and mu
Battle of the Elements is a new puzzler from EnjoyUp Games and Barcelona studio Undercoders, and it looks a lot like this. You hold the DSi book-style and must line up elements so they disappear. It all looks fairly standard stuff, but it could be worth a play. We'll find out when it's released in the coming months. Can you save the planet? The Legendary Elements are the key to face..
Hot foot it
Another week and another set of videos showing more of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword than you might want to see. As always bear in mind these videos will probably contain spoilers of items, areas and enemies you'll be able to encounter for yourself in just two weeks' time. If you're not bothered about spoilers, indulge yourself in these two new trailers showing off the Lanayru..
May contain spoilers
Whether or not you agree with Nintendo's dripping tap approach to marketing The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, you can't argue that the game looks anything less than beautiful, particularly in this new trailer. Although Nintendo's termed this the "origin" trailer, it might still contain the odd spoiler for what lies ahead, so if you want to preserve that sense of..
What more do you need?
You want to make a rap video for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, but you haven't got access to a world above the clouds or a nearby volcano. What do you do instead? You dress up as Link, go down to the beach and film it there. The video below might not be the most faithful tribute to the series we've ever seen, but it's...
But our lips are sealed
We're in the final few weeks before The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is finally available to buy. We know you're excited about the game, but that some of you don't want to see everything about the game before you have a chance to play it yourself. We understand. That's why we're not telling you anything about the videos below, but we are posting them for those people who..
It gets weirder
The first screenshots of Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games did indeed blow minds and collapse worlds: from dinosaurs riding horses to Sonic the Hedgehog taking part in a walking race, there were truly incredible scenes. This next trailer can't quite match it, but makes a good effort anyway. Events new to the series include synchronised swimming, volleyball and..
A new twist on old favourites
Monster Hunter 3 G looks good in screenshots, but it looks even better in the video below. We already knew that new monsters would appear, but the trailer also shows off variants on some of Monster Hunter 3 (~Tri)'s most fearsome challenges: there's a purple Jhen Moran and a white Lagiacrus for starters, as well as a...
Land a panda
Three weeks ago Marvelous AQL announced a new Harvest Moon on 3DS, and now we have the first in-game footage from upcoming agricultural adventure Bokujou Monogatari: Hajimari no Daichi, or Harvest Moon: First Earth. As you can see it's business as usual in Harvest Moon world, with chickens to fuss over, fields to till and giant pandas...
Game gets new gameplay video and official site
After enjoying success with its Iridion series on Game Boy Advance, developer Shin'en knocked the socks off of shoot 'em up fans with two Nanostray DS releases. And while Shin'en has released a variety of titles over the past few years, it's the studio's upcoming return to the Nanostray series, Nano Assault for Nintendo 3DS, that has long time fans of..
Old versus new
For those of you out there who are anxiously awaiting the release of Cave Story 3D on 3DS, the folks at NIS America have been kind enough to send over a brand new gameplay trailer of the game in action. In this newest video, you'll get to see just how far the game has come with its brand new 3D visual makeover. There's even some new...
You'll see what we mean
You can't beat a good top-down shooter, especially when the enemies are giant bugs and you have flamethrowers and laser guns: that's scientific fact. By similar scientific logic, the upcoming Centipede Infestation on 3DS and Wii should be approaching unbeatability, as the new trailer below shows. The game itself might look a...
For real this time
Nintendo has released the superb opening movie for Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, and it's sure to brighten up your weekend. The opening movie below needs no words to describe it: just watch it and know you'll be playing Link's next epic adventure in just over 40 days. If you've missed one of the many videos Nintendo's released for Zelda so far, catch them all over at our Legend..
How can a dungeon have a sky view?
We don't know how the estate agents came up with the name, but Skyview dungeon is the subject of a new trailer for Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. The dungeon follows on from the Faron Forest featured in yesterday's dowsing trailer, and features swordfighting and an appearance from Lord Ghirahim. It's the same dungeon we played in our Legend of Zelda: Skyward..
Back in the saddle
Robin Williams named his daughter Zelda after The Legend of Zelda, and now 25 years on he's still connected to the series, as this pair of adverts for The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Anniversary Edition shows. The first advert shows the Williams clan competing to collect the most Rupees, with Robin so confident he bets his...
Soak it up
The avalanche of Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword videos continues: we've seen the romance trailer and sword tutorial, but here's a trailer showing all sorts of other good stuff. The suitably epic video is embedded below, but be warned: it contains footage of previously unseen boss battles, as well as bamboo, balancing, balls and birds. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is s
Wii MotionPlus at work
The deluge of Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword videos continues, with the new footage below showing just how accurate the new MotionPlus-powered swordfighting is. The tutorial video below depicts Link slashing in all directions to fell the training logs, developing skills that will come in handy for overcoming the wily enemies throughout the game. We've seen MotionPlus..
And in English, too
If you can't get enough of Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, what could be better than an official tutorial from Shigeru Miyamoto himself? How about a video showing Miyamoto in full-on Link mode, swinging his very own Master Sword around like the Hero of Time himself? Now we're talking. The video below is eight minutes of Skyward Sword with an officially translated commentary from..
More than just a video
A set of seven new 3D trailers hit the eShop today, but like the Nintendo Life team they're not just pretty to look at: they serve a higher purpose too. Downloading any of the trailers also allows you in to receive SpotPass notifications for that title in future by playing the video, selecting "Notifications" and...
See Mario and more
Update: Nintendo of America has confirmed these trailers will also be available in North America soon. Nintendo Europe has announced a set of new 3D trailers will reach the European eShop today. Seven trailers in total will reach the eShop, and are likely to be 3D versions of videos that did the rounds before the recent Tokyo...
Arguably one of the best bits of Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker was the treasure-hunting sections that made a thrill out of exploring the expansive ocean, and the idea returned again in Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. Even without so much water everywhere, treasure is just as important in Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, as the video...
It's ninja warrior time
SEGA just sent over some fresh footage of the latest reinvention of its classic franchise: Shinobi for 3DS. The gameplay footage below shows off far more of a combo-based style of gameplay, though it's always pleasing to see Musashi performing the classic mid-air shuriken spin attack. The game's down for a European release on 11th November. Will you be seeking it out on this..
Alternate routes abound
Star Fox 64 3D is just a week from launch, and Nintendo has just let loose another salvo of gameplay footage for you to ingest. The new trailer below shows some of the game's alternate routes in action, so if you're the sort of person who likes to discover things for themselves you might not want to watch this all the way...
The gang's all here
We're just weeks away from Star Fox 64 3D, and Nintendo is starting to make a big noise about a new feature in its next 3DS game: wireless multiplayer. The new trailer below shows off the game's local multiplayer — sadly no Internet play here — including use of the 3DS's internal camera to show your face to your opponents, grinning and gurning as you go. We'll be putting..
See more of the RPG everyone's talking about
Xenoblade Chronicles landed in the UK charts in seventh place, but if you've not been convinced to pick it up yet — or if you've had trouble locating it — a new set of Let's Play videos hits the game's official YouTube channel this week. One new video launches today, while a second lands on Thursday...
Classic doesn't always mean "good"
Resident Evil and voice acting go together like WiiWare and fireplace simulators. This latest trailer for Resident Evil Revelations shows the series has lost none of its love of the ridiculous when it comes to giving voices to its main characters. Chris Redfield and new partner Jessica Sherawat must explore a vast...
Let them rap about it
Life lesson #1: you can never have too much Nintendo-themed hip hop. Last month we told you about Heath McNease's album Straight Outta Console, and now we have Letters to Princess by rapper I B. Detailing the agony and frustration felt by Toad, Luigi and Bowser that Mario always manages to capture the heart of Princess Peach,...
Heroes of Ruin is one of the 3DS's most promising third-party titles for next year, and Square Enix has just released a brand new trailer showing you what to expect in 2012. We recently played the game in London and came away genuinely impressed by what could be a truly important title for 3DS. Be sure to read our Heroes of Ruin preview for an overview of what developer n-Space is cooking..
Reggie appears too
The FlameRed 3DS is under a month away, and Nintendo is keen to use tomorrow's price cut and the new colour to inject some life into the handheld's sales. In case you were in any doubt about this, here's a video showing the console's new, redder shade; in fact, Reggie Fils-Aime has a new, redder shade of his own, looking even more tanned than usual. Talking heads from Ubisoft and..
More than that, we can't say
Yesterday we told you about the Legend of Zelda Flipnote Studio competition, and if you're struggling to get a grasp on sketching the Hero of Time this instructional video might help you out. The video shows how to draw Link in his classic adult look as well as the more divisive Toon Link style, and should help improve...
Rubbing it in some more
European Wii owners can buy Xenoblade Chronicles next week. They can play it on their Wii consoles, without modification or anything like that: just put the disc in, pick up a pad, off they go. North American gamers though... well, they're not so lucky. You know what would take some of the sting out of that, though? How about an official Let's Play channel for the game,..
Also in the eShop
EnjoyUp has a decent array of games available to buy in the DSi Shop and 3DS eShop, but it's no good having them if people don't know about them, right? Good job this new video sums up the company's line-up so neatly, then. Featuring innovative retro shooter 99Bullets, red hot Little Red Riding Hood's Zombie BBQ and sibling...
All in one video
We've been having our own Metroid anniversary celebrations here at Nintendo Life, inviting your Metroid memories as well as reviews of every Metroid game. Metroid fansite Shinesparkers put together a special video containing tributes from community members as well as Cave Story creator Dai
Take it for a spin
It's been a while since we heard about Driver Renegade 3D, but Ubisoft is stepping up its game with a series of animated shorts depicting hero Tanner driving around, taking down bad guys and delivering cheesy one-liners. The first episode made waves in the 3DS eShop, particularly for some of the more adult language used, and the...
You know, Nazo Waku Mansion
Capcom's Nazo Waku Mansion isn't content with just 3D graphics — it's using 3D sound too, along with almost every other 3DS feature imaginable, as you can see in this video below. The young lady playing the game uses the console's gyro sensor, motion detection, microphone, touch screen and more in ways that include pushing a child on a swing, DJing at a concert,..
500pts for puzzle platformer
After shooter Cosmos X2, Saturnine Games is ready to release its second DSiWare game. Antipole, next week. The gravity-bending platform puzzle game will reach DSiWare in North America on 21st July and sell for 500 Points. Saturnine also sent over the launch trailer below, so check it out and pop back after the 21st for our in-depth review. Saturnine also informed us..
