Splatoon hack lets you play with a real water gun

The PlayStation and Xbox platforms are clearly moving towards a future where virtual reality is an option for playing console games. But what about the Wii U? What could the aging system offer players in terms of realism and freedom of movement? Well, if Nintendo adopted this mod from the researchers at Japan's Kougaku Navi, you could play the shooter Splatoon on a head-mounted display while using a real water gun.

Nintendo NX to still have physical media, so says GameStop

Nintendo NX to still have physical media, so says GameStop

When your business primarily depends on the sale of what some consider to be antquated physical media, it is, of course, in your best interest for the market not to suddenly decide to ditch such media. That is probably the reason why GameStop claims, or perhaps wishes, that Nintendo's new NX console will still go the physical game media route, as its profits is beholden to the sale of new and pre-owned games. Luckily for GameStop, the market and technology might still be on its side this time.

Ever Oasis is Nintendo’s new RPG for the 3DS

Nintendo made it clear this year that it would only be at E3 2016 in limited capacity, offering looks at the new Legend of Zelda and Pokemon games. But the Japanese game giant still had a surprise for us, revealing a brand-new RPG title for the Nintendo 3DS. The game is called Ever Oasis, and it comes from developer Grezzo — which was responsible for the Zelda remakes of Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask — with Koichi Ishii (who worked on the first three Final Fantasy games and SNES classic Secret of Mana) directing.

Hyperkin Smart Boy for Android devices turns up at E3

Hyperkin Smart Boy for Android devices turns up at E3

We always have to be weary when seemingly cool products are unveiled for the first time around the first of April. Many tech and gaming firms out there have a history of unveiling plausible, very cool products luring geeks to buy it only to scream, "GOTCHA!" when you try to add it to your cart. ThinkGeek is perhaps the biggest purveyor of this kind of trick. Back around April Fools 2015, Hyperkin tried to trick us all with the Smart Boy, a device that turned an iPhone into a modern Gameboy. As has happened with ThinkGeek a few times, the response was so great that Hyperkin decided to produce the product and at E3 this month, the product was spied.

Pokemon GO, Pokemon GO Plus accessory launch date revealed

After a long wait at E3 2016, Nintendo finally gave the information that Pokemon fans have probably been waiting for. The Pokemon Go Plus accessory for the game is scheduled to launch late July. Although not explicitly stated, that can only mean that the monster-catching AR game itself will be launching at the same time. Of course, we can hope that it will be earlier, but we'll still take late July as a good sign. That is, if Niantic Labs and The Pokemon Company don't run into showstopping bugs and issues before then.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild still has a male Link

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild still has a male Link

With a title that goes "Breath of the Wild", some might easily associate it with the phrase "breath of fresh air." In some cases, the game might indeed offer that, breaking from some of the established conventions and limits of previous Zelda games. Unfortunately, the Wii U title still doesn't break free from one of the things that has had fans and even outsiders debating endlessly. That means this Legend of Zelda still doesn't have a female Link as rumored or, at the very least, even a female protagonist.

These are Pokemon Sun and Moon’s Legendaries

Pokemon Sun and Moon (AKA SUMO) have two legendaries as of today - Solgaleo and Lunala. As you may have guessed, sunnier of the two will appear in the Sun version of the game, while the Lunar pokemon will appear in Moon. Despite their names, they will not be Sun Type nor Moon Type - nor any sort of astronomical sort of type. Solgaleo is a psychic/steel Pokemon and Lunala is psychic/ghost Pokemon. Both will be fully identified only when the game has been released, as it always is.

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.
