Adventure Is Reborn In The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild

It is the small touches that allow The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to captivate so readily. Squirrels scramble up trees, lizards scurry underfoot, and blades of grass gently sway with the wind as you energetically bound across Hyrule’s open plains. Here is an adventure that not only promises to be so grandiose in scale but breaks free from many of the conventions that have seemingly ...

Getting Started With Miitomo – Hands-on Preview

After an hour with Miitomo, I was completely sold on it. As with many others, when Kantan Games CEO Dr. Serkan Toto caught wind of the project and hinted that we should “expect the unexpected,” a free-to-start communication app certainly wasn’t the first thing that came to mind. Many raised an eyebrow, not least investors, who, after being heartily encouraged by Nintendo’s ...

Five Things We Love About The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes

We have been lucky enough to spend the last fortnight braving the perilous Drablands. The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes is now under a month away from launch, and so we thought it would be good to take the chance to share what we’ve been enjoying most in Link’s latest adventure. 1: The Wacky Story Tri Force Heroes serves up a zany story that, while not Pulitzer Prize material, sees...

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer preview

As the newest employee to be hired at Nook’s Homes, Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer presents a differentiated experience in which you can see what it is like to work under Nintendo’s “misunderstood” and business-minded raccoon. Shop-keep turned real-estate agent Tom Nook is now looking to give back to the neighbouring community through his latest business venture. As &...

Devil’s Third preview

It’s hard to know where to begin with Devil’s Third. As the first game from legendary Japanese game designer Tomonobu Itagaki since his sudden departure from Tecmo in 2008, the Dead or Alive creator would soon rally former Team Ninja developers when they similarly chose to step away from a company that they had long felt betrayed by. Forming Valhalla Game Studios, this first project wa...

Star Fox Zero preview

Blurred from the world’s prying eyes, a year has passed since Shigeru Miyamoto revealed that Star Fox would once again return to our screens. However, having long defended the Lylat system, Nintendo’s intrepid team of intergalactic mercenaries are now faced with a new challenge in being positioned as Wii U’s blockbuster release for the festive season. It’s clear as day that...

Animal Crossing x Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 2 preview

The Animal Crossing x Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 2 will arrive on the starting grid earlier than expected tomorrow, and, in a rather lengthy post, we’re giving you a handy breakdown of everything that awaits you! New Characters Villager Villager first wandered wide-eyed into our lives back on GameCube, when Animal Crossing’s addictive and cheerful nature first struck a chord in the west. Gr...

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate preview

It’s been an agonising wait for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. After Monster Hunter 4 issued a call to arms across Japan in late 2013, those around the world particularly keen to join the hunt have had to await Capcom’s souped up successor. And, while the wait has been arduous, early impressions indicate that this comprehensive iteration has best prepped the Nintendo 3DS exclusive’s ...

The Legend of Zelda x Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 1 preview

Nintendo have, in the past, always advocated that they would always choose to ship a complete game to consumers, rather than force them to expand their experience through downloadable content. It’s an admirable strategy especially when compared to those of their competitors, but it has meant that players have had to be left satisfied with the content that populates games that only ever relea...

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS preview

Spin a globe, land your finger on Japan, and you’ll be pointing at a country that will shortly awaken to the unending thrill of Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS. While the rest of the world has to patiently hold out for another three weeks, we were lucky enough to take Nintendo’s most recent preview build for a test drive and it is undoubtedly shaping up to be something rather specia...

Bayonetta 2 preview

Absence makes the heart grow fonder, and Bayonetta, aside from those late to the party, has been out of our lives since 2010. The return of the sultry Umbra Witch was revealed in September 2012’s Nintendo Direct, PlatinumGames barraged with complaints over the sequel’s Wii U exclusivity despite repeated explanations that it wouldn’t even be happening without Nintendo’s supp...

Mario Kart 8 preview

Thundering into view, it could be said that there is a lot of hope currently riding on Mario Kart 8. Whilst Nintendo’s plans for E3 this year understandably remain shrouded in secrecy, retailers earlier this year indicated that they saw the return of their beloved kart racing series as the “one real last chance for Wii U“. It could be said that the company thrive on such pressure...
