  • News Natsume Has a New Sale Available on the eShop

    Whaddya buyin’?

    One of the more welcome features of the vastly improved eShop of last generation was the introduction of sales on Nintendo’s digital storefront. Though the company rarely discounts its games—and when it does, there’s not a whole lot being dropped—it nonetheless has at least provided third parties with a means of enticing...

  • News Super Mario Maker Gets A Long-Overdue Update On Wii U

    To make for a "pleasant playing experience"

    Super Mario Maker was one of our favourite Wii U games; Nintendo clearly invested great time, resources and thought into making it greater than its core concept. The user interface, the creativity of the tools that feed the player's imagination and the overall polish are a testament to the development...

  • Video Let's Reminisce With 34 of the Most Infamous Bad Miiverse Posts

    Some are good, most aren't

  • News Wii U OS Version 5.5.2 Is Now Live

    Now this was unexpected

    It’s been months since we last saw an update for the Wii U, but that’s not necessarily surprising given that Nintendo jumped ship with the thing just about as fast as they plausibly could’ve. Indeed, the Wii U died a quick death as Nintendo moved on to greener pastures with the Switch, but it seems that perhaps the...

  • News Teased Wii U Mod Switches Things Up by Outputting TV View on GamePad

    Splatoon is the obvious candidate

    Nintendo hardware is often targeted for homebrew, hacks and exploits, and we've seen a fair amount of them with 3DS and Wii U - attempts are also being made with the Switch.
