We're on the home stretch now to the release of Splatoon, which was confirmed to be out on 29th May on the last Nintendo Direct.

Quite a bold...

Wii U Shooter Splatoon Makes EDGE Magazine's Cover

Hype is building

Splatoon is arguably one of the Wii U's biggest games of 2015 - if not its biggest, now that Zelda has slipped to next year. It's something of a departure for Nintendo, a company which has traditionally resisted the video game industry's current focus on first and third-person shooting titles. However, Splatoon has found a very...

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.

Both set to cost...

New Star Wars Rebels Table Announced For Star Wars Pinball

Hopefully, its release date isn’t far, far away

Crunchyroll Pre-Order Bundle for Etrian Mystery Dungeon Includes Extra Goodies

A lot of nice things

When it comes to pre-order and 'first run' extras, Atlus seem to be top of class on the 3DS.

That's also the case with the upcoming Etrian Mystery Dungeon release in North America, but the...

Two Tribes’ Toki Tori Remake is Coming to the 3DS eShop

How eggsciting

A brief history on the development of Toki Tori. Toki Tori was a puzzle platformer originally launched on the Game Boy Color back in 2002 as a pseudo-remake of an MSX title called Eggbert, but it didn't sell too well due to being released late in the console's life. In 2008, Toki Tori was ported to Wiiware and was one of the first...

Improved visuals, gameplay tweaks, stereoscopic 3D

It's easy to forget that, in the DS days, there was a market for a number of 'mid-tier' games at retail - not quite triple-A hits, and not overtly casual sims or brain training games, but enjoyable games nevertheless that were well worth checking out. Monster Tale certainly counts as one of these,...
