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 ...

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 ...

Official Japanese Trailer for Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice

An official Japanese trailer has just been released for the upcoming Sonic Boom game for the 3DS, titled Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice. It’s a 2.5D platformer, which seems to be the preferred genre for Sonic games, and judging by the trailer, there is a lot to like about the game barring preference over character design. You can check out the trailer, which highlights the differences between ice and ...

FAN VIDEO: The Legend of Zelda – Race for Rupees

Animator Callegos Yavolitak has recently posted a short but extremely enjoyable fan video for The Legend of Zelda, the quality of which is so high that it makes you wish Nintendo would get off their butts and develop a CG animated series already. The short is titled Racing for Ruppes, and features Link trying to score himself a new shield. Unfortunately for the hero of time, the shield costs more ...

Play Super Mario 64 Straight From Your Browser

With the existence of Nintendo 64 emulators and with PCs these days powerful enough to do the job, playing Super Mario 64 on your PC isn’t such a big deal (in fact, you can even play it on your smartphone if you have one of the beefier ones.) However, what about playing a remake of the first level – one with HD textures that make it look like a Wii version of the game? And how about doing it ...

Nintendo of Japan to Cease Production of Original 3DS XL Models

Nintendo of Japan has recently announced via their official website that the original 3DS XL, regardless of color and model, will soon be discontinued. The announcement is odd considering that a range of colors for the original 3DS will continue to be produced and sold. The possible reason for the 3DS XL being discontinued is a push for the new Nintendo 3DS and 3DS LL, which has been released in ...

New Trailer for Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire

The Pokemon Company’s Japanese Youtube channel has posted a new promo trailer for the upcoming remakes Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. The new trailer seems to leverage the fact that it’s a remake of the Gameboy Advance installments, as it devotes a few moments of the trailer to banking on the GBA nostalgia. Afterwards, the trailer goes straight to the overview of the new features, such as the ...

Pokemon Omega Ruby + Alpha Sapphire Dual Pack Comes With In-Game Bonus

Most Pokemon fans are content with just owning Omega ruby or Alpha Sapphire, and just gaining the exclusive Pokemon from the other title through trading (or through hacking, if it ever became possible.) However, those of you who live on the completionist side of the fence will be glad to know that Nintendo has announced plans to release a Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire Dual Pack in North ...

Marvel x Nintendo Mashup: The Wiivengers

We have always described Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers as “Avengers Meets Pokemon,” on account of the fact that it’s a bunch of kids collecting and summoning Marvel characters and getting them to fight other summoned characters. However, animator James Farr has taken things one step further as he releases a fan new parody video that actually combines Marvel and Nintendo IPs: The ...
