Super Mario Maker goes Hello Kitty with new costumes

Super Mario Maker goes Hello Kitty with new costumes

Super Mario Maker is a very cool game that allows fans to design their own Mario levels that look like games played in the classic Nintendo days of yore. One of the cool things about the game is that you can get different costumes that make your on screen character look like characters from other franchises. That means instead of wearing suspenders and a mustache, you can play as someone else and still do all those Mario things like whack floating blocks.

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.

Nintendo insists on calling next mobile games “free to start”

Nintendo insists on calling next mobile games “free to start”

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, Shakespeare did write. But the same is true for undesirable things as well. Nintendo might be trying to distance itself from the ubiquitous but still criticized free-to-play games, but its still ambiguous "free-to-start" model might not fare any better. In fact, given the literal interpretation of the phrase and Nintendo's rather colorful reputation in today's gaming market, the label might do more harm than good in promoting Nintendo's upcoming mobile titles.

Virtual Boy gets an unofficial Google Cardboard reprise

Virtual Boy gets an unofficial Google Cardboard reprise

While the Nintendo 3DS will perhaps be forever remembered as the Nintendo 3D gaming platform, it wasn't the company's first foray into stereoscopic land. That distinction belongs to the Virtual Boy, whose short stint ended in catastrophe. While that torture equipment will remain a blot on Nintendo's history, the games it supposedly supported may yet find salvation in today's new age of virtual reality. That is mostly thanks to some heavy lifting done by Redditor The-King-of-Spain, who has kindly left instructions on how to play Virtual Boy games today via Google Cardboard or even a Samsung Gear VR.

Back in December of last year, Microsoft released Minecraft on the Wii U.

But today, we finally know what they've been up to.
