Nintendo, we need to have a talk. I thought that maybe you learned an important lesson about branding thanks to the failure that was the Wii U, but it's clear from this newest 3DS XL variant that you have not. You put Reggie on video to announce the "New Galaxy Style New Nintendo 3DS XL," today, and when the President of Nintendo of America has to say "new" so many times that he begins to doubt his script and stumble over his words, we've got a problem.

Pokemon GO helped Nintendo 3DS become July’s best-selling console

Nintendo's share of the goldmine that is Pokemon GO may be a bit nebulous, but today we're discovering that the app is helping Nintendo in more indirect ways. It would seem that Pokemon GO has helped renew interest in the core series of Pokemon games and, by extension, the platform that hosts them, as Nintendo has announced that its 3DS was the best-selling console in July.

Nintendo announces New 3DS bundle, adds eight titles to Selects lineup

If you've been thinking of picking up Nintendo's New 3DS, you may want to hold off just a little longer, as the company has announced a new bundle that features a pre-installed copy of Super Mario 3D Land.

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.

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.
