We propose and pick apart Pikmin 4 theories
Last year we looked at the dormant Nintendo franchises we'd like to see return on Switch, and our desire to see any or all of those series again still burns strong in 2020.

Nearly 15 years after the game's original release
A famous melody which has appeared in multiple Nintendo games over the years is Totaka's Song. It was originally created by Nintendo composer and sound director Kazumi Totaka and first appeared in X - a 1992 shooter on the original Game Boy - as a secret. Since then, it's become somewhat of an iconic...
Nintendo's smallest heroes are coming back
When Pikmin 3 arrived in summer 2013, it ended a long and generation-spanning wait for fans of one of Shigeru Miyamoto's freshest franchises. Disregarding Wii re-releases it had been around nine years since Pikmin 2 on GameCube. The wait for Pikmin 4, however, looks set to be far shorter. Speaking to...
GameCube and Wii titles that could make the cut
Just recently we published a list of five Nintendo 64 games we'd love to play on 3DS, inspired by the recent arrival of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D and its remastered predecessors, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and Star Fox 64 3D

If you lose your keys, just whistle
Club Nintendo rewards, in Europe particularly, aren't updated particularly regularly. When something new arrives, as a result, street parties are held, firework displays are common and gamers are merry. Well, OK, that doesn't happen, but considering that some of the existing rewards in Europe are DSi kits and...
Three down, more surely to come
Pikmin 3, after a lengthy development period, is now beginning to grace Wii U systems around the world, and is clearly a source of great pride for Shigeru Miyamoto. The famous Nintendo designer has described it as the "ultimate version of Pikmin 1", and to date it's received substantial critical praise, including a...
Naturally, it sold less than Pikmin 2
Pikmin 3 was released in Japan last week and new data from Media Create has shown it has sold a respectable number of copies. The folks at Siliconera have put together a little comparison chart showing how the third game in the series sold in relation to its two predecessors. As we know, Pikmin 3 sold 92,720...
Including the 'Cube
When Wii U is released, you'll be able to play games from each of Nintendo's home consoles thanks to a mixture of backwards compatibility and the Virtual Console. With one exception. No, not Virtual Boy. Currently GameCube has no place on Nintendo's first high definition console, that we know of: only games on systems up to...
