  • News The Kirby And The Forgotten Land Launch Trailer Is Predictably Cute

    Happy Kirby Day!

    It's probably fair to say that not every Kirby game has got the pulse racing, with often excellent releases sometimes followed by excessively 'safe' entries in the series.

  • Out Now Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy: Cloud Version Is Out, But Try The Demo First

    'Connecting to server...'

    It's fair to say that plenty of Switch owners are yet to be convinced of the value and viability of 'cloud versions' of high-end multi-platform games. Sometimes the technology can be surprisingly good, but if there are connection issues at your end or - indeed - on the host server, the games quickly become unplayable. The...

  • News Luna's Fishing Garden Is All About Fishing And Gardening, And Looks Charming

    Will you be hooked?

    With a typical Switch eShop week bringing 40+ new games, plenty arrive with very little attention.

It recreates the era of the French Inquisition and an invading English army, with its hook being the consistent presence of...

  • Reminder Game Builder Garage Is Out Now On Nintendo Switch

    DIY development

    Nintendo has had a busy time recently, actually publishing games on consecutive weeks. Out today, of course, is Game Builder Garage - its origins can be found in the 'garage' area of Labo VR, though this standalone app is far more flexible and powerful. As a brief summary, it's a very Nintendo take on accessible game development;...

  • Reminder DC Super Hero Girls: Teen Power Is Out Now On Nintendo Switch

    It's published by Nintendo, after all

    It's hard to think of many Nintendo releases that have had a lower profile than DC Super Hero Girls: Teen Power.

  • Out Now Splatoon Brings Some Colour to the Wii U

    We dig it

    Today's European Nintendo Download Update is one of the most crowded in recent memory, with six new downloads on 3DS, two on Wii U (including a Virtual Console release) and a ludicrous number of discounts.

    Triple the fun

    It's great being a Nintendo fan in Europe these days isn't it? Nowadays we normally get games at the same time as our cousins across the pond.

    It's arm-less fun

    Rayman Legends is released today in North America, and it arrived in Europe on 30th August.
