Imagine pouring hours into a labor of love, a creation all your own that you want to share with the world. Then imagine that one day that creation was destroyed, and save from recreating it from scratch, it would be gone forever. That's exactly the feeling that some Mario Maker creators are experiencing.
Have you ever wanted to play a game where you could fight Pokemon? No, I'm not talking about tossing your Pokeball out, and selecting some attacks. I'm talking about playing as your favorite pocket monster, and beating on someone else's creature of choice. If this has ever been your dream, then you're in for a treat this spring.
If you've been looking for an excuse to replay the Gamecube/Wii classic Twilight Princess, you're in luck. Soon, you'll be able to pick up a remastered version of the game, which includes a brand new dungeon. Unfortunately, you'll have to pay extra for that previously unreleased content.
When you buy a collectable figure, you've got a couple of options. You can take it out of the packaging, and enjoy playing with it, or leave it in the box, to remain in mint condition for all of its days. Unfortunately, if you're into collecting amiibo, you don't have much of a choice if you actually want to use them for their intended purpose. Thankfully there is at least one that you can use, while still leaving it sealed in its packaging.
Smash Bros. is a game that takes a lot of time to master. If you've ever watched a large tournament, you'll quickly realize just how far behind the curve you are, in terms of skill. But perhaps you're one of those people that can best all of their friends, and needs a new challenge. Well get ready, because we've got the biggest challenge of them all.
Last week we brought you the news that Bandai Namco was making a special controller with a single game in mind. Specifically, this controller was designed for Pokken Tournament, a Pokemon arcade fighter. While it was interesting to see a controller specifically designed for a fighting game, there was one disappointing part to the news: It was only to be released in Japan.
Last week we brought you the news that Nintendo was changing the way you browsed for courses in Super Mario Maker. Instead of forcing you to sort through courses in-game, they have made a dedicated website where you can find and bookmark your favorite courses. Today, the site has gone live.
Back in the mid-90's, Japanese-style RPG's were starting to gain popularity in the US. However, there was one game that probably did more for the genre than any other. I'm of course talking about Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. By creating an RPG that featured characters that we all know and love, it was an easy game for many to get into. And it's making its way back to peoples' homes.
While some companies like to charge for updates to their games, no one can fault Nintendo for how they've handled Super Mario Maker. The game has been out for just over three months, and has received a number of big updates for free. And in just a few days, we'll be seeing another.
The controller you see in the image above may not look like it, but it's actually for the Wii U. The thing is, it's meant to be used with one game in particular: Pokken Tournament, the Pokemon arcade fighting game that is headed to Nintendo's home console next year. It's a wired controller and is notably missing any analog sticks, but those are unnecessary when it comes to dedicated fighting game fans, who prize smooth directional pads and zero latency button presses above all else.
This week has been an emotional roller coaster when it comes to the announcement that Minecraft would be coming to the Wii U. First, it was exciting to hear that it was coming, though far too late. Then we found out yesterday that you wouldn't be able to use the GamePad for inventory management. Now today we have a little bit of good news, regarding it the game.
