Nintendo Makes New Set of Mario Hanafuda Cards

It’s sort of common knowledge among gamers that Nintendo wasn’t originally a videogame company, having predated the videogame medium itself. They got their start as manufacturers of Hanafuda cards, which means “flower cards” and is used to play a variety of games including its namesake. What is little less known (most likely because it’s no longer relevant to videogames) is that ...

Next Legend of Zelda Game Will Have a Different Kind of Open World

In a recent interview with IGN, The Legend of Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma admitted that they are listening to the criticism given by fans in the last main Zelda game, Skyward Sword, particularly with regard to its open world and how it’s not as vast as fans have come to expect from the franchise. “We actually had some feedback from Skyward Sword, where people were saying, ‘This is ...

Nintendo Confirms Timeline of The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes

One of the more interesting quirks of Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda franchise is the fact that all the Links featured in the games are different persons (except in cases of direct sequels, where the Link is carried over to the next game.) existing in different timelines. The chronology is therefore one of the most discussed topics among fans, and a frequent subject of debate. Nintendo has ...

North America to Get a Yo-Kai Watch Nintendo 2DS Bundle

The Nintendo 2DS, which is a budget version of the 3DS that lacks the 3D function and a couple of other things, is admittedly not as popular in the U.S. as its predecessor. This is understandable given the fact that there’s already a lot of 3DS owners in the U.S., making the cut down version not so appealing, and also because the removed features are the main selling points of the handheld. If ...

Preview Trailer: The Legend of Zelda – Tri-Force Heroes

Nintendo has just posted a new preview trailer for their upcoming 3-player co-op action game The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, which is great timing because the game will debut in less than a month.

Pikmin 4 Confirmed by Nintendo to Be Nearing Completion

This may come off as a weird bit of news due to the context, but back in July, Nintendo confirmed in a chat with Eurogamer that Pikmin 4 is under development. But it was not reported on because the production was under embargo. Said embargo was lifted recently so Eurogamer has revealed the information, but there’s the added bonus of newer information, such as Shigeru Miyamoto himself confirming ...

Nintendo to Give Away Shiny Rayquaza for Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

Starting from August 12 until September 14th, the Nintendo Network is giving away a free Shiny Rayquaza to owners of Pokemon Omega Ruby or Pokemon Alpha Sapphire on the Nintendo 3DS.

Pokemon Brand Gets Its Own Visa Card

People thought that the Pokemon brand has achieved peak exposure when they came out with Pikachu-themed curry rice, but those people probably thought long and hard then changed their minds after realizing that they still can’t purchase things using Pokemon money (except if you’re Nintendo, because in their case Pokemon actually prints money.) Fret no more, Pokemon-addled brains of my ...
