Stand-Alone Kirby Fighters And DeDeDe's Drum Dash Headed To The Japanese 3DS eShop

Both feature new content, both out this month

Those of you wise enough to have purchased the rather excellent Kirby: Triple Deluxe will be aware that the mini-games included with the title — Kirby Fighters and DeDeDe's Drum Dash — are jolly good fun, and stand-out releases in their own right.

Link to the Cash

The Zeldathon Adventure kicks off on 10th July and will be the 12th fundraiser from the...

Konami’s Yu-Gi-Oh series has a long and successful history in digital form, perhaps never more so than on Nintendo hardware – a relationship that stretches all the way back from the original monochrome Game Boy right up to Zexal World Duel Carnival, which is both the first 3DS Yu-Gi-Oh...

Kotaku Says YES to the Wii U - Rejoicing Begins

Invaluable positive press for the system

We don't often reference editorial opinion from major websites as news, but as we're forever seeking silver-linings and positivity for the rather marvellous Wii U, we're going to make an exception. Kotaku, one of the most influential — we're talking top three — gaming sites in the world, has upgraded its...

Kicking it into Xenogear

The fourth entry in Warsaw studio QubicGames' downloadable AiRace series, AiRace Xeno is a natural progression of last year's AiRace Speed on the 3DS eShop – race three different futuristic aircraft at face-melting speeds through nine tough obstacle-filled tracks and try to beat your high score.

A Week of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS Screens - Issue Forty Five

Rosalina! Mega Man! New 3DS stage! More stuff!

Super Smash Bros. is still coming, yes it is.

Tomonubu Itagaki Thinks Gamers Will Buy A Wii U Just For Devil’s Third

"I feel that ultimately gamers are the ones who make the future"

Devil's Third isn't your typical Nintendo-published title — it's loaded with guns, swords, gore and lady's bottoms. Given the family-friendly nature of the Wii U, you might assume that creator Tomonubu Itagaki would be a little worried that this new title will struggle to find an...
