Kirby set to spin Wii U owners a yarn

It’s another one of those weeks where the Virtual Console releases are the focal point of Nintendo’s eShop schedule. Sorry, Swords & Soldiers II – we can’t look past a delightful double whammy of Kirby’s Epic Yarn and Paper Mario. Nintendo’s decision to bring the incredibly well-received Kirby’s...

Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. piles on the pressure

Gamers often say that Nintendo recycles their properties too often, yet when presented with something different and new the reception isn’t always a warm one. Case point – Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. Intelligent Systems could have easily knocked up a new Advance Wars, but instead chose to craft an...

A double dose of Mario Kart

We actually to fail to think of a single eShop release that’s arrived at a higher price, downloads of retail releases notwithstanding. That name wasn’t picked simply because it sounds delightfully quirky though...

Trine gets a second chance to shine

A double dose of Mario

Nintendo are busy handing out invites for Mario Party 10. By which we mean this: it’s available to purchase in both digital and physical forms from Friday onwards. It’s set to cost £34.99 on the eShop. Hardly an outrageous price (Pikmin 3 was £49.99 if memory serves) but...
