That Canadian mug better contain a double-double, eh?
Maple syrup! Olympic mittens! A hockey player! Poutine! Nintendo spared no Canadian cliché in the making of their announcement video on EPN for the new Super Smash Club Canada. All they were missing was a box of Timbits and a two-four.Read More
I have no underwear and I must scream.
Good news for those of us who get annoyed by weird out-of-place sexualization of characters in video games—when Princess Peach is flipped over in Super Smash Bros for the 3DS, you don't see her butt the same way you used to in previous games like Brawl. The bad news? If you stare long enough, you might see the fabric of reality unwinding on itself instead. Maybe I'll take a butt instead, thanks.Read More
Smash Bros. for 3DS releases in Japan in just over 24 hours, so it was inevitable that spoilers would be coming. If you'd prefer to wait, Nintendo will be streaming tomorrow with their own official details, but you can watch players unlock the remaining characters on Twitch right now if you just have to know.Read More
It's-a me, your drained bank account!
Well, we didn't need money anyways, right? Nintendo has just announced that they're releasing three new variations of the 3DS XL before the 2014 holiday season - including one that looks like a classic NES controller. And the box it comes in? Shaped and designed like an NES console.Read More
"Just bang on it." Close, but we were looking for: "Blow on it."
Yes, there are now people who are nearly full-grown adults who have never blown into an NES cartridge to make it work. Who is raising these children without NES in their lives? It's downright disgraceful. While I call DYFS about that, watch these teenagers try to figure out how an NES works. (Hit the jump for a bonus video of the teens playing some more NES games.)Read More
Get N or get out.
Nintendo is getting aggressive about its release timetable to try to turn things around for the Wii U, and this newly-tweeted schedule for 2014 and 2015 says we'll have both a new Zelda and Star Fox by the end of the year—not to mention the huge list of Wii U games for the first half of 2015 on top of both Smash Bros. games coming out this year. That's certainly one way to turn around the idea that there's no reason to buy your company's console.Read More
Two guys, their assistants, and lots of magic.
I want to hug whoever came up with the amazing idea to put these two crazy kids together. I’m talking about Professor Layton, the top-hatted Londoner who loves solving puzzles, and ace attorney Phoenix Wright. They’re like peanut butter and jelly—a delicious man sandwich that packs so much flavor you won’t want to go back to having one without the other. In a totally platonic way, of course.Read More
Nintendo Announces New 3DS, Confirms Leaked Smash Bros. Character in Nintendo Direct [UPDATED: Character Spoiler Spotted in Video]
Looks like we don't have a choice!
Last night, Nintendo held a Japan-only Nintendo direct, where they announced several things including new 3DS models which have a second circle pad built in among several new features and a brand new Smash Bros. character. The new models will reportedly even have a faster processor and exclusive games which the current 3DS won't be able to play.Read More
What? Tekken is evolving!
News of this Pokémon fighting game has been floating around for over a year, but it's finally official: The Pokémon Company has announced an arcade fighter called Pokkén Tournament. And no, the title being a portmanteau of Pokémon and Tekken is no accident—it's in development at Tekken studio Bandai Namco.Read More
