Yarn Yoshi Is Just Too Darn Cute

Nintendo turns the 'cuteness' up to 11

During Nintendo's latest Nintendo Direct it emerged that we won't be able to visit Yoshi's Woolly World until at least June in Europe and a vague 'Fall' in North America. It's been over 2 years since the game was first announced and we can't wait to play it, but hopefully this selection of real-life Yarn Yoshi...

Xbox Boss Phil Spencer Reckons "It Would Be Cool" if Rare's Banjo Was Voted in as Super Smash Bros. DLC

"We've worked with Nintendo on Rare IP before"

In a blow to console warriors that want the major console manufacturers to battle it out to the death, Xbox boss Phil Spencer has spoken positively about the potential for Rare IP to be featured as DLC in Super Smash Bros. on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Now that would be something to behold. This is in...

Gawk at Fancy Super Smash Bros. Mewtwo Screens and Full Costume DLC Details

What's the deal with the DLC?

As sanity returns to the world of Nintendo, with many taking some time off for the Easter weekend, we thought we'd take advantage of the fact that the official Smash Bros. website is no longer creaking under excess traffic and grab some details and pretty images. This article's in two parts - there's a gallery of the...

Iron Combat: War in the Air (3DS eShop)

Altitude, don't forget to watch altitude...

Making an immersive 3D shooter on any platform is quite an undertaking, but this is especially true on the 3DS. There are some of these titles available on the platform, but they aren't as popular as many other genres. This makes the elusive quality shooter on 3DS even more valuable, and as a result, games...

Garfield and Paddington Bear to Star in Upcoming 3DS Blockbusters*

*Might not be blockbusters

The 3DS has a lot of great games, both at retail and on the eShop, but it can always do with a few more additions. It seems the world of mid-tier retail releases hasn't finished yet - it was dominant in the DS era - with publisher Ravenscourt bringing some recognisable IPs to the portable in Europe. Both set to cost...

Here's a Handy Comparison of Mewtwo's Moves in Super Smash Bros. Melee and on Wii U

Lots of extra polygons

Mewtwo is coming very soon to the latest Super Smash Bros. titles, as soon as 15th April for those that registered on Club Nintendo. For eager fans and series veterans it'll be an exciting arrival, with Melee players no doubt getting ready to bust out their old moves and combos once again. Though this DLC character has taken...

Review: Best of Arcade Games - Tetraminos (3DS eShop)

Best of Arcade Games - Tetraminos (3DS eShop)

Line 'em up...again and again

It's safe to say that developer Bigben Interactive has been hard at work, relentlessly churning out adaptions of all manner of board and arcade games as part of a range of "Best Of" titles. While it might seem redundant to try and recreate the mighty Tetris on a Nintendo handheld of all places, Tetraminos is arguably...

The Moon in Majora's Mask Probably Has a Black Hole Inside, Because Science

Physics is actually fun

We rather enjoy videos and articles that essentially serve as 'stealth education' here at Nintendo Life. Take a much-loved game or topic and apply scientific logic to it, and you have the ingredients for a video that's both entertaining and fascinating. That criteria certainly applies to this video focused on why the moon in...

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate April DLC Available Now, Featuring Sonic Palico Gear

Hopefully won't troll as hard as the Zelda unlocks

We're not going to lie, aspects of the free March DLC for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate were frustrating - the Legend of Zelda gear looked fabulous but, heck, good luck clearing the quests to unlock it. We jumped online in a group of four and failed spectacularly - it hurt. Hopefully the key April...

North American date is possibly a few days sooner

If you remember back a few weeks, it was finally confirmed that Rodea the Sky Soldier would be spreading its wings and escaping the depths of development hell. After a shaky development cycle that was dragged out over three years, NIS America made the announcement that it would be publishing the...

Talking Point: Nintendo Turns to Classics, DLC and amiibo to Keep Fans Hooked

Nintendo Turns to Classics, DLC and amiibo to Keep Fans Hooked

Stalling tactics, but delightful nevertheless

Nintendo's most recent Nintendo Direct broadcasts were an oddity of contradictions - a lot was revealed, but it can easily be argued that there wasn't a great deal of new content. We were excited and delighted by some of the reveals, but conversely shook our heads and felt concern with every release...
