Pop Stars Vs. Monsters In This Week’s Nintendo Download

by Peter Paltridgeon June 23, 2016
If you had asked anybody months ago about this particular week in the Nintendo Download, was anybody expecting Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE to decimate Keiji Inafune’s Mighty No. 9 in reviews? Because that’s what happened. The long-awaited return of Mega Man’s creator was largely derided as mediocre, while this weird brightly-colored dance-mashup starring Fire Emblem […]

E3 2016: BoxBoy Is Back!

by Peter Paltridgeon June 16, 2016
One year ago Nintendo released a charming little puzzler called BoxBoy! for 3DS. You played as a literal box with eyes, who had the ability to spring other boxes out of itself and chain them together to get past obstacles.

Surprise! Nintendo just sprung a brand-new game series, starring characters you’ve never seen before, on you without warning.

Monster Hunter Generations comes to Nintendo 3DS in a month. But you can play a bit of it today if you’re fortunate.

E3 2016: Nintendo’s Big E3 Sale Starts Today

by Peter Paltridgeon June 14, 2016
Nintendo doesn’t discount its own games very often, so the occasion of a special E3 super-sale is worth attention. Through the next week, many Nintendo games and even some third-party titles will be discounted up to 40% off their regular price. And if you’re registered with My Nintendo, an addition 10% will be taken off […]

by Peter Paltridgeon June 8, 2016
The bad news is that Nintendo’s planned presentation during E3 remains frustratingly low-key; the good news is that they decided to show more than ONE game. In addition to the new Zelda, you can look forward to seeing gameplay from Pokemon Sun and Moon, Monster Hunter Generations, Dragon Quest VII and Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE. […]

Mythical Pokemon Manaphy Available Through The Month Of June

by Peter Paltridgeon June 7, 2016
Another Legendary Pokemon Giveaway is now underway: this time, it’s Manaphy, who was introduced in Pokemon Diamond and Pearl. In that game, however, few people actually went through the trouble of getting her: it required ownership of a separate DS game, Pokemon Ranger, from which you would collect Manaphy’s egg and transfer it to D&P.
