Nintendo’s Q1 earnings report disappoints with Wii U and 3DS sales down

Nintendo’s Q1 earnings report disappoints with Wii U and 3DS sales down

Nintendo has been very hot and cold lately. From the launch of Pokemon GO, which is shaping up to be the most impressive mobile game launch ever and caused Nintendo's stock price to soar, to the inevitable tumble back to Earth as Nintendo tried to temper investor expectations concerning the amount of money it would pull in from the title, Nintendo has been on something of a rollercoaster the past few weeks. The ride isn't over yet, as Nintendo's newest earnings report has hit, and the results for quarter one are disappointing to say the least.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf receiving amiibo support later this year

Nintendo is taking a quick break from all of the Pokemon GO hysteria to give us a truly surprising announcement: Animal Crossing: New Leaf will be getting amiibo support this autumn. Obviously you'd expect Nintendo to throw a ton of support behind amiibo considering their popularity, but the surprising bit about this announcement is that Animal Crossing: New Leaf was released in North America more than three years ago.

New Pokemon Sun and Moon trailer arrives packed with gameplay footage

If you Pokefans can manage to pull yourselves away from Pokemon GO for a few minutes, Pokemon Sun and Moon have received a new trailer that you'll probably want to see. The trailer features quite a hefty amount of gameplay footage, giving us a longer glimpse at features like four-way battles.

The Top 5 Pokemon Sun and Moon features I’d like to see

The Top 5 Pokemon Sun and Moon features I’d like to see

It's kind of hard to believe that Pokemon will be celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. For those of us outside of Japan, we haven't had the franchise quite that long, but if you're old enough to remember the US or European launch of Pokemon Red and Blue, Pokemon's 20th anniversary serves as a reminder that it's been a really long time since we took that first journey through the Kanto region. Pokemon Sun and Moon are being released in conjunction with the franchise's 20th anniversary, and it looks to be one of the most exciting Pokemon releases we've had in a while. With that in mind, I've come up with a list of five features I'd like to see in Pokemon Sun and Moon to make them stand out from the rest of the titles in this admittedly by-the-books series.

Pokemon Sun and Moon gets new trailer with strange monsters in tow

We still have quite a while before Pokemon Sun and Moon launch, but in the meantime, reveals of new Pokemon from the game keep trickling out. Today Nintendo is giving us a glimpse at seven new monsters and a single old one, simultaneously getting fans hyped and leaving a few of them scratching their heads. These new Pokemon were leaked a few hours before the official trailer dropped, giving fans a window to claim they were fakes before Nintendo came out and confirmed that no, these new monsters really do exist.

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

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.

Pokemon Sun and Moon details: Battle Royal multiplayer

Pokemon Sun and Moon details: Battle Royal multiplayer

Today we're having a peek at a few new Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon details, starting with the 4x player multiplayer mode called Battle Royal. This is a new battle format that'll appear for the first time in Pokemon Sun and Moon, including four separate players (2 or 4, no more, no less), all against one another at once. You'll need to strategize to the max in this mode - it's an all-out struggle, and you don't want to be caught battling three trainers at once.

Use your iPhone cable to charge your 3DS with this adapter

Use your iPhone cable to charge your 3DS with this adapter

When you have a smartphone that need recharged at least every night, you tend to carry around something to charge it with. That's why I keep a spare Lightning cable in my bag, and one in the car. But what happens when you want to charge something else, like your 3DS? Well, if all you have is a Lightning cable, then you'll soon be in luck.

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

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.
