Cue the Foaming Mouth Guy

Nickelodeon's wildly popular follow-up to Avatar: The Last Airbender will be getting the video game treatment when The Legend of Korra bends its way over to the Nintendo 3DS courtesy of Webfoot Technologies (perhaps best known for their lengthy run of Dragon Ball Z adaptations on the Game Boy Advance). The retail-only title...

Here Are Some Charming Tappingo 2 Screens to Enjoy

New zoom feature shown off

Tappingo 2 is the second 3DS eShop title from Goodbye Galaxy Games, a rapid sequel to the rather charming original in this fledgling puzzle series. A blend of Picross with original ideas, we rather enjoyed the first game. The new entry will have over 100 puzzles and, as a response to a complaint of the original, a zoom...

Bayonetta 2 Director Eager to "Nurture" the Series With Nintendo Again in the Future

"There's a lot that we learned from Nintendo"

Bayonetta 2 is getting increasingly close to its arrival on Wii U, and when you throw in the inclusion / release of an updated Bayonetta, albeit in different deals per region, it could be enough to keep Nintendo gamers busy for a good while from October onwards. It's easy to forget, too, how big an...

That platform has opened the door for projects and game engines utilising code such as HTML5 and...

Nintendo Game Developers 'Sing' About Their Upcoming Wii U Releases

Splatoon! Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker! Star Fox! More!

So, we admit, that's a cheeky headline, though we trust the 'Sing' and image have tipped you off to what's really going on here. Nintendo has released a rather funny video of its big-name developers singing songs about their current Wii U projects... in Tomodachi Life. One of this game's...

Hyrule Warriors Downloadable Costume Sets Feature Twilight Princess Outfits for Link and Zelda

Screens for Agitha, Lana, Zant and Argorok also released

Though we have release dates for Hyrule Warriors in the West, one area that's yet to be outlined is whether there'll be multiple retail editions with additional costume sets, as is the case in Japan. At present the official website outlines three offerings, with details as follows. A...

Stealth Inc 2 Could Arrive on Wii U as Early as October, Level Editor and Miiverse Details Explained

Curve Studios shows us its upcoming exclusive

Stealth Inc 2 was announced not so long ago, and was surprising as it was confirmed to be a Wii U exclusive. It'll certainly be a welcome addition to the eShop, and an intriguing one in light of the fact that the original title never made it to Nintendo hardware. We've just recently had a look at the...

Interview: Bertil Hörberg Jumps Back Into the Saddle With Gunman Clive 2

Bertil Hörberg Jumps Back Into the Saddle With Gunman Clive 2

"I felt I needed a bit more colour this time"

When it arrived with relatively little fanfare in December 2012, Gunman Clive appeared to be a cheap and cheerful Holiday title. Then we played it. What had seemed like a modest download game transpired to be a short slice of finely crafted fun with a charming aesthetic, which combined with a budget...

Devil's Third Developer Discusses Its Unique Approach, and Learning From Nintendo

"I had this opportunity to learn about Nintendo culture"

Devil's Third was a major surprise at E3; the Valhalla project formerly in the works for PS3 and Xbox 360 was announced as a Wii U exclusive. Its absence from the the Nintendo Digital Event was hardly a surprise considering its tone and genre, but it did raise eyebrows and will stand as one of...

Cooking Mama 5: Bon Appétit Cooking Up a Treat for 3DS in September

Step into the Cooking Dojo

In exciting news for those that are fans of cooking with a stylus — which doesn't work very well in real life — Majesco Entertainment has confirmed that Cooking Mama 5: Bon Appétit will be arriving in the West this September. This is a title we've covered in the past as it was on its way to the Japanese market, though...

Developers Outline The Creative Process for Crafting Splatoon as a New IP, Working Towards Retail Release

"We had robots, different animals, macho men, and Mario"

Of all its announcements at E3, Splatoon was arguably the biggest hit for Nintendo, perhaps aside from obvious blockbuster efforts such as The Legend of Zelda. It generated a lot of hype, seemingly caught the imagination of the Nintendo Life community and has been praised in numerous previews...

KickBeat: Special Edition Wii U eShop Trailer Shows Deadly Rhythm

Fresh footage of X-Type Plus and Master Reboot also released

Zen Studios has undoubtedly been one of the most committed download game publishers on the Wii U eShop, releasing multiple games and some DLC on the store. Occasionally the titles have taken a while and not all DLC has made it, yet considering the limited audience up to this point it'd be...

Impa Shows Off Some Impressive Moves in the Latest Hyrule Warriors Trailer

Call that a sword? THIS, is a sword

Tecmo Koei and Nintendo have been busy in recent days and weeks to make sure that gamers know all about Hyrule Warriors, both also doing their utmost to convince us that this is a title we simply must have on Wii U. This Dynasty Warriors mash-up will certainly be a diversion for the much-loved franchise, at least...

Shovel Knight Release Trailer Delivers Epicness in Spades

AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

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...

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 —...

Guild Quests Could Change the Way We Enjoy Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

Randomised maps and drops aim to add replay value

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is still tormenting us with an early 2015 here in the West, though we can expect plenty of enticing details to emerge ahead of its arrival. This version will have a lot of additional content over the original that was Japan-only, though there are aspects of that first...
