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

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.

Link Joins Mario Kart 8 as DLC Character

If you’re a frequent visitor of Toonbarn, you may have noticed that we regularly post entries about the Legend of Zelda franchise. Every chance we get. It’s because several of Toonbarn’s contributors are fans of the games and the fact that it had an animated TV series (no matter how crappy it was), gives us an excuse to write about Link without straying too far away from the site’s ...
