Nintendo’s 8GB Wii U Basic set to be discontinued in Japan

Things have been somewhat quiet for Nintendo in the Wii U market lately, what with several of the system's big games delayed until later this fall, and it being unclear what the company might show off at E3 this year.

Silver Mario amiibo arrives May 29

As we reported back in February, Nintendo will be releasing Silver and Gold edition Mario amiibo figurines. No details about them were released at the time, but we’ve heard more about them since then, and now the most important detail has arrived: when you can get your hands on them…or, at least, on the Mario Silver Edition Amiibo (given that a gold edition hit Walmart back in March).

Don’t expect Nintendo’s mobile games at E3 this year

Nintendo may expect to have its first mobile game on the market before the year is through, but don't plan on seeing any hint of it at E3 2015.

Instead, Nintendo says, it's aiming for a few polished titles rather than a gush of cash-ins.
