Nyko wireless SNES controller is perfect for the Classic Edition

Nyko wireless SNES controller is perfect for the Classic Edition

Nintendo is teasing SNES fans with its Classic Edition, a modern version of the retro console that includes wired controllers for a more authentic experience. If you're not so keen on having an authentic experience, Nyko has the controller you probably wish Nintendo would have used: a wireless SNES controller. This model looks just like the original (with the purple and lavender buttons), but it sheds the cable in favor of a small dongle.

The SNES Classic Edition is here and I’m already in love

The SNES Classic Edition is here and I’m already in love

We're one week out from the launch of the SNES Classic Edition, but today, SlashGear's review unit landed on my doorstep. Though I can't give you a full review just yet (that's coming soon), I can give you an early peek at the mini console itself, along with my initial impressions. It kind of goes without saying, but just like the NES Classic that came before it, the SNES Classic is quite the charming device.

Pokemon Gold and Silver now available on Nintendo 3DS

It's a big day for Pokemon fans. Not only is Pokken Tournament DX launching on Nintendo Switch (read our review here), but Nintendo is also bringing Pokemon Gold and Silver to the Nintendo 3DS eShop. These re-releases follow the eShop launch of Pokemon Blue, Red, and Yellow, which were all released to celebrate Pokemon's 20th anniversary.

Mewtwo and Pokemon GO’s newest secret weapon

Mewtwo and Pokemon GO’s newest secret weapon

As we wait for Halloween to roll up in Pokemon GO, Niantic's sprung a Solstice Event on us - and a new item. This item allows the user to attain the contents of Pokemon Eggs far faster than normal - and multiple times per item. At the same time, it's nearly time for everyone to have access to the master monster Mewtwo.

Doom on Nintendo Switch is retro-revival done right

Doom on Nintendo Switch is retro-revival done right

When Nintendo revealed that last year's Doom revival will be coming to the Switch, it took a lot of people by surprise. Doom was one of the biggest games released last year, and it offered a level of graphics fidelity that a lot of people thought wouldn't be possible on the Switch. Bethesda has given a number of publications an early look at the game, and those who doubt the company's ability to actually bring this game to the Switch might be surprised by what a lot of them are saying.

Nintendo Switch’s hidden Golf game is a tribute to Iwata

Nintendo Switch’s hidden Golf game is a tribute to Iwata

It seems that the Nintendo Switch’s hidden and largely inaccessible NES Golf game is more than just a simple Easter egg. Reports are flowing in that the game’s presence inside the company’s latest console is, in fact, a tribute to the late Satoru Iwata and that the game can only be unlocked on the former CEO’s death anniversary and in a somewhat odd way. Whether true or not, the idea seems to have a struck a chord among Nintendo fans who looked upon Iwata as an icon not only in the company but in the gaming industry at large as well.

SNES Classic in-store at bankrupt Toys R Us at launch

SNES Classic in-store at bankrupt Toys R Us at launch

Yesterday, Toys R Us announced that it will pursue bankruptcy to seek some relief from the large debt it's built up over the years. Normally, an announcement like this from a nationwide toy chain wouldn't have much implication for the world of consumer electronics, but with the launch of the SNES Classic Edition looming, it most certainly does. After all, Toys R Us represents one of the best chances to actually buy an SNES Classic on launch day, as it's one of the few retailers that didn't offer pre-orders for the device.

Pokemon GO event update: Equinox, time to start over!

Pokemon GO event update: Equinox, time to start over!

Starting soon is the next Pokemon GO event, set right on top of the Summer Equinox. This event will allow users to jump in and start their game over again from the start, rewarding them for doing so. The biggest - and perhaps most tantalizing - reason to start over is triple-bonus XP for registering a new Pokemon to a player's Pokedex!

Pokken Tournament DX review: Pokemon brawler goes portable

Pokken Tournament DX review: Pokemon brawler goes portable

Even though I consider myself a pretty big Pokemon fan - I’ve played every mainline game since Red and Blue and to this day can still sing the PokeRap (it’s like riding a bike, honestly) - Pokken Tournament evaded me when it was originally launched on the Wii U. With Pokken Tournament DX, I’ve been given another shot at experiencing the game, so how does Nintendo’s Pokemon fighting title hold up in the jump to the Switch?

Nintendo Switch’s hidden “flog” emulator hides full NES Golf

Nintendo Switch’s hidden “flog” emulator hides full NES Golf

A little over two months ago, the Nintendo Switch community was brimming with excitement at the report that there might be a built-in emulator, oddly named “flog”, inside the Switch. Nothing came out of it since then, however, and it was mostly regarded as a dead end. Until now that is. Thanks to the investigations of SwitchBrew member yellows8, we may have an idea now why it was named “flog”. That’s because this emulator might have been made specifically for the classic NES Golf game alone, which apparently is also available inside every Switch console as well.

Pokemon GO just committed a cardinal sin, so I quit

Pokemon GO just committed a cardinal sin, so I quit

Niantic just initiated a feature in Pokemon GO which has made me feel like it's time to quit the game. I've played since before day one - I was an early tester, and I've played almost non-stop since that time. Now I think it's time to throw in the towel. Not because of Raid Battles, and not because of the ever-changing gym. Not even because I've completely run out of cash and am now homeless because of the game (though that bit's a big blown out of proportion.)

Doom and Wolfenstein are coming to Nintendo Switch

Doom and Wolfenstein are coming to Nintendo Switch

Bethesda surprised everyone when it revealed that Skyrim was destined for the Nintendo Switch all those months ago, but now the company is really throwing its support behind Nintendo's new console. Bethesda and Nintendo have revealed that Doom and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus will be coming to the Switch, giving owners some more recent Bethesda titles to play.
