  • News This Is The Most Touching Miiverse Tribute Of Them All

    "Thank you"

    The time that we wished would never come has now arrived, Miiverse is officially now no longer a thing.

  • News Pikmin 3 Will Not Include Online Multiplayer

    Local co-op is included

    It shows how eagerly anticipated Pikmin 3 has been that Nintendo wasted no time opening its show with the title at E3: the regular teases over a number of years meant that it was always going to be a high profile reveal. More details on the Wii U title are starting to emerge, and one negative is that the multiplayer component...

  • E3 2012 Miyamoto Talks Zelda Wii U Experiments

    Several in the works

    Last year's Zelda HD experience was certainly graphically impressive, but as always Nintendo was keen to stress it was just an example of what's possible; we know from past experience Zelda tech demos often vastly differ from the finished product. Nintendo's main man Shigeru Miyamoto told Entertainment Weekly there are various...

    Who will they be?

    Shigeru Miyamoto — creator of Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong and more, of course — has dropped a seriously big hint we'll see new characters from Nintendo very soon. The Guardian asked Miyamoto if there was a particular game or style he wanted to work on, to which he replied: I don't have a big list of ideas I want to realise, I...

  • News We'll Finally See Pikmin 3 at This Year's E3

    Plucky for you

    It seems ages since we first heard about Pikmin 3, doesn't it? Shigeru Miyamoto apologised for its no show way back at E3 2010, and it was the same at last year's show. There'll be no such apology this year, as Nintendo confirms we will see Pikmin 3 in June. The Wii U threequel will be the first HD entry in the series, but other than...
