Fire Emblem Bringing The Battle to the Wii U in Europe This Week

The growing Game Boy Advance library on the Wii U Virtual Console has already brought us some excellent titles, but the latest announcement will no doubt have strategy fans rather excited.

Alone In The Dark is Set for Yet Another Comeback

Will it find the light?

Alone In The Dark on Wii, released back in 2008, won't exactly go down in the annals of history as a classic. While the original game in this franchise is widely cited as a source of inspiration for subsequent survival horror experiences, the Atari-published reboot in the previous generation of systems didn't go down...

Weirdness: Two Fish Duke it Out in Street Fighter II

Two Fish Duke it Out in Street Fighter II

Get PETA on the line!

Not so long ago we shared the humorous and slightly goofy spectacle of a Fish playing Pokémon, in which its often lazy swims around its tank would be converted into D-pad and button inputs. Like any Twitch phenomenon there'll be others that use that original as a source of inspiration, and we reckon this particular spin-off is...

News: "Mystery Travelers" Are Waiting to be Found in Wii Street U

"Mystery Travelers" Are Waiting to be Found in Wii Street U

Hints point the way

Wii Street U has perhaps been forgotten a little since its initial arrival as a free download in early 2013, though the fact it was a freebie helped to make it the most downloaded Wii U eShop title ever in some regions — Google really is taking over the world. We suspect that downloads of the Google Maps / Street View-inspired...

Resident Evil Revelations 2 Assets Spotted

Uh-oh, they're on the official Xbox site

While each passing year leaves us less convinced than ever that Capcom can rediscover the glory days of its Resident Evil franchise, which arguably culminated with Resident Evil 4, 3DS title Resident Evil Revelations was a pleasing step in the right direction. It also remains one of the best-looking games on...

Turns Out Former James Bond Pierce Brosnan Isn't Very Good At GoldenEye 007

The Spy Who Karate-Chopped Me

GoldenEye 007 is arguably one of the finest video games ever made, and was a massive seller on its host platform, the N64. It recreated the events of the iconic 1995 James Bond movie of the same name, and starred a digital likeness of Pierce Brosnan (and a "square" Sean Bean, lest we forget). Just in case you're...

As a sequel to the rather good DSiWare original, there's

News: The First 4 Figures Sword Kirby is Cute But Costly

The First 4 Figures Sword Kirby is Cute But Costly

Over $200 if you want one

We do like the varied collectible figurines offered by First 4 Figures here at Nintendo Life, even if they're slightly unobtainable luxuries due to their hefty price tags. Fans of cute pink fluffball Kirby should take note, then, as Sword Kirby is the latest offering on the way in Q1 2015. Standing at 16 inches tall, this...

Dan Adelman on the Indie Scene, the Nintendo Years and His New Venture

Still in the indie's corner

Dan Adelman's official job title at Nintendo of America used to be Head of Digital Content and Development, but in practice he was regarded by many as Nintendo's most recognisable ambassador for download and 'indie' games. Well known and liked among developers, he's widely attributed as helping to drive Nintendo towards...

Armillo has been another solid addition to the Wii U eShop library in recent times, earning a positive 8/10 in our review. Developer Fuzzy Wuzzy Games has acknowledged that some aspects of the experience could be better, however, and has been diligently working on an update. A Miiverse update has confirmed that this v1.1...

Yokai Watch Western Release Targeting Next Year, With Toys Also Planned

No detailed plans revealed as yet

Level 5 has been clear that it's exploring its options to bring Yokai Watch to the West, though quite what form it'll take remains intriguing. The popularity of the first title gained additional momentum when the animated TV show took off in Japan, and the sequel — which is a dual release — has well exceeded the...

SteamWorld Dig Wii U Release Date and Pricing Surface

We're digging that HD resolution

SteamWorld Dig is one of the most popular games on the 3DS eShop, and for good reason, so it's unsurprising that news of the HD iteration coming to Wii U was greeted with some delight.

Ghost Song Developer "Prepared to Move Heaven and Earth" for Wii U Release

Time needed to port Open FL project to the system

Ghost Song was a Kickstarter project that certainly caught the eye in 2013, with an obvious source of inspiration being Super Metroid, while its mechanics, setting and sense of style were certainly appealing. While it reached its funding goal for PC / Mac, it unfortunately fell short of its Wii U...

Microsoft's Phil Spencer Lays Down Ice Bucket Challenge to Reggie Fils-Aime and Shuhei Yoshida

Is his body ready?

It seems every season of the year has its irresistible online trends, and one doing the rounds this year is for people to film themselves being doused by a bucket of ice water before passing the challenge on with a nomination. It has the noble cause of raising awareness around ALS — amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, commonly known...
