Nintendo has made the best version of the Playstation Vita so far. Except this one has games to play. After the relative fail of the WiiU (which still sold more units that the last two Sega consoles), Nintendo has come out with a combined home console and portable device that nobody uses as a home console. Not that we care, because the Nintendo exclusives are enough to keep us happy. You could go through life playing only Nintendo games and be a very satisfied gamer.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - Review

Today marks one year since Nintendo switched (*click*) up the expectations people had of them with the release of the Nintendo Switch! It's been a fantastic year with some welcomed re-releases and cool new entries in established IP, and we can't wait to see what Year 2 brings (Virtual Console please!) It also marks the first year anniversary of arguably the best game of the Switch's day one lineup, and our game of the year for 2017, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild! What's been your favourite Switch experience so far?

In September 2017, during a particularly exciting Nintendo Direct (Super Mario Odyssey, anyone?), there was a title that you might not have noticed: That game was New Style Boutique 3: Styling Star for Nintendo 3DS. Known as Girls Mode in Japan and Style Savvy in North America, it’s understandable if you’re confused or you’ve never heard of this series before. Even the name may make you think of all the female-oriented shovelware games you see at EB, but the New Style Boutique games are an underrated gem; their longevity, and the fact that it’s a series that continues to get sequels, ...

Today marks the 10th Anniversary of Advance Wars: Days of Ruin, originally released on this day for the Nintendo DS. Days of Ruin attempted to reboot the series in a much darker, bleaker direction; eschewing the happier times of Wars World for a war set in the post-apocalypse. It's the only Advance Wars game to have never originally received a Japanese release, with the game finally seeing a release there five years later as a Club Nintendo 3DS exclusive. It's also the final Advance Wars game to date. Have you played Advance Wars: Days of Ruin?

It seems like just a few months ago that I was last wandering through the islands of Alola, feeding beans to my Meganium and reading my friends’ responses in Festival Plaza. Compared to the usual Pokémon formula of releasing a third version well after the release of a new generation, it feels surreal to already be playing a new Pokémon title only a year after the release of the originals. Given their naming scheme, you might be expecting Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon to be a sequel title similar to Black and White 2, though they’re more of a ‘remix’ of the originals, akin to Pokémon Emer...

On my recent plane flights to and from Japan, I had a lot of spare time to play Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions for the 3DS, a remake of the original Gameboy Advance game. Originally released in 2003, Superstar Saga was released to high praise from critics and fans, cementing itself as a classic in the Gameboy Advance’s repertoire. Given the game’s success and popularity, the 3DS version has some big shoes to fill. Does the remake maintain the unique appeal of the original, whilst also finding ways to update the game for a modern audience? Is it a good way to exp...
