A group of researchers from Swiss university ETH Zurich teamed up with none other than Disney on a project that resulted in a 8-player version of Super Mario Bros. running on a Nintendo Entertainment System and played through a 360-degree projection system.

Minecraft on the Wii U: Too little too late

Minecraft is the sort of game that we'll only see once in a lifetime. It was originally created by a single guy, and has gone on to be the single best-selling PC game of all time. In fact, it very well could overthrow Tetris and Wii Sports as the best-selling video game of all time. The game has been sold on nearly every imaginable platform, except the one that makes the most sense (besides the PC). Today, it was announced that the game would finally be coming to the Wii U.

Nintendo: focus is on IP not mobile, NX will be very different

Although it seems that the sleeping dragon that is Nintendo has started to rouse from its deep hibernation, perhaps it is wise to still rein in expectations and throttle down the excitement. Newly minted company president Tatsumi Kimishima sat down with TIME Magazine to reveal as much as he could about his plans for Nintendo.

Kimishima is at least promising that the Nintendo NX console will be very different from the much criticized Wii platform.

A side-project, mostly for the fun of it, isn't going to be the end-point for the people behind the popular Super Smash Bros mod-makers, and the mods that've already been made will remain in operation for the foreseeable future.

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).
