We're fans of the slightly bizarre Mii-sim Tomodachi Life here at Nintendo Life, and it's been enjoying a solid — if unspectacular — run in the UK charts, as one example.

We'd like to think that video game journalism has progressed past the era when we mindlessly slathered over screenshots of games and reviewed things in terms of heads that looked like they were about to explode, but if anything is to make us don our old neon shirts and bring "Radical!" back into style, it's the...

It seems that Ubisoft just can't help itself when it comes to eShop discount promotions. In what appears to be a bi-monthly occasion, it's slashed the prices of a substantial range of titles on both the Wii U and 3DS stores in order to drum up some more sales.

The Nintendo 64 is Now 18 Years Old in Japan

Finally old enough to run Conker's Bad Fur Day

Time flies when you're having fun, especially for those of us who grew up spending excessive amounts of time playing GoldenEye 007 and Mario Kart 64. That's because the Nintendo 64 was released a whopping 18 years ago today in its native territory of Japan. Released on 23 June 1996, the N64 served as a...

Awesome New Hyrule Warriors Trailers Show Link Rocking the Fire Rod and Some Serious Swordplay

No mercy

It may turn out to be slightly mindless button mashing action, but Hyrule Warriors will be mindless button mashing action in The Legend of Zelda's world; we suspect that fact alone will be enough to excite plenty of players. It arrives in September on Wii U, of course, and with that release — along with an earlier arrival in Japan —...
