by Peter Paltridgeon January 28, 2016
This week in the Nintendo Download, it’s a double-dose of old-school Final Fantasy gameplay, one classic, one new. Final Fantasy Explorers is a throwback title where you master job classes and defeat monsters with summons, just as in the early titles from the FF series…but there are a few new additions, such as the ability […]

When Mario Kart 64 Comes To Wii U, Something Will Be Missing — Again

by Peter Paltridgeon January 22, 2016
The European version of the Wii U just got Mario Kart 64 on Virtual Console! However, there’s one disappointment. The original release contained a feature that let you save your best record on any track, then play a ghost version of yourself to attempt to beat that record. To this day, the only release of […]

by Peter Paltridgeon January 21, 2016
Got amiibo? If they’re Zelda ones, they might help you out in Twilight Princess HD, the upcoming rerelease of Nintendo’s 2006 classic. Assuming nothing goes horribly wrong, it should be the definitive release of the game (widescreen AND normal controls!) A limited edition release of Twilight Princess will come with a Wolf Link/Midna amiibo. Not […]

Let It Snow(board) In This Week’s Nintendo Download

by Peter Paltridgeon December 31, 2015
It’s another slow week in the Nintendo Download, with the only notable release being the N64’s 1080 Snowboarding. In addition, the majority of the games on sale are incredibly obscure. And then there’s something called “Molly Maggot.” Not an exciting way to close out 2015. It’s worth noting Europe got Super Mario RPG last week. […]

by Peter Paltridgeon December 24, 2015
Indie developer Cypronia has announced a big giveaway for their Wii U game Cube Life.

Cloud And Minecraft Arrive In This Week’s Nintendo Download

by Peter Paltridgeon December 18, 2015
This week in the Nintendo Download, the unthinkable has happened: Minecraft is finally playable on the system. Did it arrive too late? Did Mojang goof up by not optimizing the second screen for extra controls? (Probably.) Better late than never: you can begin bricklaying today on the Wii U for $29.99, which covers the game […]
