Paper Mario: Color Splash Was Accidentally Leaked By Nintendo Last Night

by Peter Paltridgeon September 23, 2016
Nintendo’s next Paper Mario game, subtitled Color Splash, isn’t due out for two weeks. Ordinarily we would have had to wait that long, but not today. For some reason, the “pre-order” button on the Nintendo E-shop changed to “buy” and all pre-loaded digital copies of the game became functional. The problem was quickly fixed, but […]

by Peter Paltridgeon September 7, 2016
Nintendo made an unexpected appearance at the start of Apple’s latest press conference, to reveal their expanded mobile plans.

Pikmin, Yoshi, Mario And More From The Latest Nintendo Direct

A new Nintendo Direct livestreamed out of the Treehouse today, focusing entirely on the 3DS and filling in some holes in its current release schedule.

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 […]
