Yokai Watch 2 is coming to the US, and it’s bringing lots of toys

After the huge success in Japan, Yokai Watch made its debut to Western gamers this past November, nearly two years after the game’s original Japanese release. While the franchise’s reception hasn’t been as extraordinary as its rival, Pokemon, the games and television show seems to have made enough bank to continue the line with Yokai Watch 2. The release of the second game was really when the series began to take Japan by storm, so hopefully the same can be said about the US market.

Pokemon Sun and Moon starters revealed: What you need to know

If you haven't heard the good news, you're finally going to be able to play Super Nintendo games on the go.

Classic Pokemon can be transferred out of eShop versions of the original games

Pokemon has one simple motto for you to live by. "Gotta catch 'em all." Unfortunately, if you played the original games and caught them all, they had to stay right where you left them, on your original GameBoy. All of that is about to change with tomorrow's release of the original games on the 3DS eShop.

The Internet wants Danny DeVito to voice the new Pikachu

On Tuesday, we were treated to a new look at our favorite electric-type Pokemon. Instead of running around with Ash as he tried to catch 'em all, he was solving mysteries. While that was a departure from the norm, that wasn't the strangest part of the video released by Nintendo.

Shovel Knight’s amiibo can be read while still in the package

When you buy a collectable figure, you've got a couple of options. You can take it out of the packaging, and enjoy playing with it, or leave it in the box, to remain in mint condition for all of its days. Unfortunately, if you're into collecting amiibo, you don't have much of a choice if you actually want to use them for their intended purpose. Thankfully there is at least one that you can use, while still leaving it sealed in its packaging.

Nintendo 3DS runs Windows 95, for real

Nintendo 3DS runs Windows 95, for real

Compared to running the very same OS on a smartwatch, seeing Windows 95 booting up on a New Nintendo 3DS might look tame in comparison. It could potentially also be more useful. Perhaps that is why there is a bit more excitement surrounding this port of one Microsoft's earliest operating systems to Nintendo's current gaming handheld. While the project might be a big deal for a holiday vacation project, the biggest question perhaps will be "what now?".

Nintendo 2DS arrives in Japan with limited-edition Pokemon colors

It's been over two years now since Nintendo debuted its 2DS handheld system in the US, dropping the 3DS's clamshell hinge as well as 3D functionality in favor of a slate-like form factor with a budget-friendly price. Now the odd portable is arriving in Japan for the first time, but in the form of special Pokemon-themed editions. The four models come in transparent red, blue, green, and yellow, and coincide with Nintendo's release of updated versions of the original Gameboy Pokemon titles.

Nintendo video compares New 3DS loading times against its predecessor

Nintendo video compares New 3DS loading times against its predecessor

Loading times are the bane of every gamer. As seconds of loading screens add up to precious minutes over time, you start to wonder just how much more of the game you could play, if it would only load faster. I've even put down games, just because I hated dealing with constant, long loading screens (I'm looking at you GTA Online). Well, if you've picked up Monster Hunter X and feel like you're wasting too much time waiting on the game to load, Nintendo has a way to fix that.
