News: HTR High Tech Racing Will Turn Your 3DS Into A Pocket-Sized Scalextric

HTR High Tech Racing Will Turn Your 3DS Into A Pocket-Sized Scalextric

Minus the smell of burning metal, of course

Back in the days before video games ruled every young child's life, there was Scalextric. Here at the Nintendo Life office — where we're all rather old and wrinkly — we can fondly recall playing with a battered old Scalextric track handed down by older relations, before finally getting our very own...

News: Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem Set For Modern Times "In The Real World"

Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem Set For Modern Times "In The Real World"

"Imagine a Pegasus that lands on Building 109 of Shibuya, Tokyo", blimey

Earlier today we published comments from Nintendo's Hitoshi Yamagami, outlining that a standalone Fire Emblem title on Wii U would need to sell around 700,000 copies to cover development costs. That wouldn't be an issue for something like Fire Emblem: Awakening on 3DS, but...

Yacht Club Games Reveals Shovel Knight's Partner, Shield Knight

A couple of tasty new screens, too

Shovel Knight is the debut game from Yacht Club Games, a studio founded by ex-employees of WayForward and with a goal of producing retro-styled games that live up to modern standards. Its pixel-based 2D action platformer — coming to the Wii U and 3DS eShop platforms — has enjoyed rave previews, while a few...

Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure to Save the World on 24th September

In North America, anyway

Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure is the next entry in the popular franchise coming to both Wii U and 3DS, which will be the only gaming platforms aside from PC to enjoy the title. It also see the series dive off into licensed territory for the first time, as it begins an assumed campaign to build a similar...

One Piece: Romance Dawn Won't Be Sailing To North America

Europe is still feeling the love, though

Namco Bandai is releasing One Piece: Romance Dawn for the 3DS in Japan next month and has confirmed it will be localised in Europe at a later date. However, there has been no mention of a North American release and unfortunately it appears the love affair is now over as Namco Bandai has informed Siliconera...

News: Freedom Factory's Bloodbath Coming to Wii U

Freedom Factory's Bloodbath Coming to Wii U

It's a bloody Hack'n'Slash

The Wii U's games library has had a decent mix, to date, of bright and cheerful titles and, in some cases, violent mature games. The latter may have been ports, for the most part, but those with a bit of bloodlust have had opportunities to scratch that itch on the system. For those that do enjoy some gory battles,...

News: Cooking Mama 5 Development Heats Up for 3DS Sequel

Cooking Mama 5 Development Heats Up for 3DS Sequel

Keep on cooking

The Cooking Mama franchise never seems to be out of the development oven, with titles regularly gracing Nintendo systems over recent years. The character has also dabbled with gardening and crafting, of course, but when we're not simulating chopping carrots with a stylus, it doesn't necessarily feel like the real deal. The good...

Video: These Japanese Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Trailers Are a Sight to Behold

These Japanese Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Trailers Are a Sight to Behold

See a real life Luigi ball. No, really

At the weekend we shared the latest Nintendo UK trailer for Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, which gave plenty of hints at the humour and quirky gameplay sequences that we can look forward to. With that said, when it comes to Nintendo games we're not sure the message is made any clearer than in Japanese trailers,...

News: Eiji Aonuma - The Wind Waker HD is a "Test Case" for New Zelda Wii U Title

Eiji Aonuma - The Wind Waker HD is a "Test Case" for New Zelda Wii U Title

"The gaming community is — I don’t want to sound rude — very fickle"

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD is due to arrive in Europe and North America this October, which will certainly be welcome to those that haven't played the GameCube original and also, we suspect, a good number of those that have. It'll be the first full title for the...

News: New Smash Bros. to be "Something Right in Between" Melee and Brawl

New Smash Bros. to be "Something Right in Between" Melee and Brawl

Balancing a priority, while patches will be considered

While we saw some nice footage during E3, there's still relatively little known about the new Super Smash Bros. titles that we'll see on Wii U and 3DS. We know that Mega Man and The Villager will be new characters, and that each version will have its own platform-specific stages, while some...
