Of course, we already knew that Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing mobile games are planned, but in a recent interview with Kyoto NP, Nintendo President Takeshi Kimishima got a little more specific about what to expect on the mobile front in the future.

Tech’s 8 biggest winners of 2016

The biggest winners of the year this year really shine a light on where our priorities are as a collective unconscious.

The Best Games of 2016: Pokemon Sun and Moon

You may not know this about me, but Pokemon and I go way back. From the moment my mom bought me a Game Boy Pocket and a copy of Pokemon Blue at the now-closed KB Toys in my local mall, I've been hooked.
