  • News New Super Mario Bros. Wii Looks Set to Hit Europe on 7th January

    Wahoo!

    Though the Wii U Virtual Console is missing a few obvious platforms and release - ahem, GameCube - it has brought some goodies. One of the welcome additions has been Wii downloads; a number of excellent games have arrived, including some that are relatively hard to find or expensive in physical form. It's certainly had its successes in terms...

  • News Super Mario Galaxy May Arrive on the North American Wii U eShop on 24th December

    Review Trauma Team

    Trauma Drama

    Back in the early days of the Nintendo DS, Trauma Center: Under the Knife was a standout example of how the then-new touch screen controls could provide a fresh experience on the go.

  • Talking Point Nintendo is Right to Move On From the Wii Family Name With NX

    Perfect for its time, but change is due

    Earlier this week TIME shared an intriguing interview with Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima, and one of the topics raised regarded the NX and the fact it won't be the 'next' in the Wii / Wii U line of systems.

    Soaring high

    Rodea the Sky Soldier is out now in North America and is imminent in Europe, and is a title that's been years in the making.

Although it has shortcomings we gave it a...

  • News Beenox Won't Be Working on Spider-Man Games Anymore

    Moving on to greener pastures

    As some of you may be aware, Beenox has more or less been the studio responsible for the Spider-Man video games for the past several years. Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, Spider-Man: Edge of Time, and both of The Amazing Spider-Man games all came from this studio, which is a rather impressive feat given how quickly...

  • Video A Wii Wave Race Project Got Far Enough to Have Its Own Patents

    Ultimately turned down by Kyoto management

    When we consider long-abandoned Nintendo franchises we'd like to see again, there's always a chance - if it's a top 10 - that Wave Race will come up within such lists. Those with fond memories of the Nintendo 64 may reminisce over its entry, even if the Game Boy original passed many by, while its last...
