Nintendo release ‘Year of Luigi’ timeline

In celebration of 2013 as the ‘Year of Luigi’, the 30th anniversary of the green wonder’s debut appearance in 1983 NES title Mario Bros, Nintendo have released an official timeline chronicling his adventures thus far.   Above is the timeline in its full glory. Can you name all the games? In addition to March’s excellent […]

Super Mario AR points cards announced

This is not an April Fool’s joke! Nintendo have finally remembered the 3DS’s AR capabilities, although the extent is perhaps dissapointingly limited. Nintendo of Japan are releasing prepaid eShop cards with an AR card adorned with one of several Mushroom Kingdom alumni; so far Mario, Peach and Goomba are confirmed, but I’d eat my hat […]

Opinion: Are third-party titles ignored?

First, allow me to speak from personal experience. This week I was faced with the (not terribly dramatic) decision of purchasing one of the two notable Nintendo platform releases coming next Friday, the 28th of March. As you may know, these are Lego City Undercover for the Wii U and Luigi’s Mansion 2 for the […]

Pokemon Rumble U to utilise NFC technology

A week or so since Miyamoto’s comments promising the introduction of Wii U titles making use of its unique NFC technology, CoroCoro magazine has revealed that the upcoming Pokémon Rumble U will indeed utilise NFC in the form of collectable Pokémon figures. In a similar vein to surprise hit Skylanders, these figures will (once connected) […]

Miyamoto; NFC, dual-Gamepad-enabled Wii U titles coming soon

Of all the Wii U’s copious features it is easily the NFC (near field communication) reading capability of the gamepad, located at that mysterious rectangle below the D-pad, that is the most underused; with a grand total of zero games currently supporting it. Fortunately, things are soon about to change, as Shigeru Miyamoto has announced […]

Two Years of the Nintendo 3DS

Can you believe it’s been two years (well, two years and two days if we’ve going to be pedantic) since the Japanese release of the Nintendo 3DS? I certainly find it hard to. Perhaps this is partly due to the sheer volume of games packed into that two year timeframe. From remakes of classic N64 […]

Meloetta coming to US Gamestops and UK GAMEs this March

With the exciting prospect of Pokémon X and Y on the horizon, it has become easy to forget last year’s excellent Pokémon Black 2 and Pokémon White 2. Someone at Nintendo clearly hasn’t, as the legendary Pokémon Meloetta will be available to download at Gamestop stores in the US between the 4th and 24th March, […]

LoZ: Oracle of Seasons/Ages coming to 3DS Virtual Console

Announced at today’s Japanese Nintendo Direct, the Game Boy Color game(s) The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons and The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages will be available to download from the 3DS Virtual Console in March, in Japan at least; no US or EU details have been announced yet, but it is fairly […]

New Limited Edition 3DS XL spotted!

Here comes yet another limited edition 3DS XL! The design ties in with the latest release in the popular Atlus developed RPG series, Shin Megami Tensei IV, and is released in Japan to coincide with the launch of said game; May 23rd. Sadly, however, I don’t see this edition being released outside of Japan; frankly, […]

New 3DS XL Club Nintendo US Promotion

Amidst all the Nintendo Direct hustle and bustle, Nintendo of America have announced a new 3DS XL promotion. In a similar vein to last year’s promotion, those who register their 3DS XL in addition to a copy of Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity or Luigi’s Mansion Dark Moon between March 21st to April 30th […]
