Dragon Quest XI Says Everything And Nothing About The NX Switch3DS

Square Enix’s consideration doesn’t shed any more clues on just what the NX is.

It was just thrown in at the end of today’s Dragon Quest announcement-a-thon: Dragon Quest X and XI would be coming to the NX. As happened the last time a Dragon Quest announcement was made, Square Enix immediately walked it back by stating that the project was under “consideration”, but it seems to be a pretty much open secret that whatever the NX is, it’ll have at least two Dragon Quest games on it.

The latest mainline Dragon Quest game has been revealed, but does it even have a chance of making it out of Japan?

I'm so very excited for Dragon Quest XI, which was recently announced to be coming to 3DS, PS4, and maybe Nintendo's mysterious future console, the NX. Set to hit Japan in 2016, the latest mainline entry in the fabled RPG series seems to be doing some neat things, such as presenting both a 3D and... Read more...

Tembo the Badass Elephant is a vibrant platformer from Game Freak that is, sadly, not coming to Nintendo platforms.

When it comes down to it, the fact that Tembo the Badass Elephant isn’t coming to Nintendo platforms is a huge bummer. The Game Freak-developed game is coming out on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam tomorrow, but even though the developers are the guys who make all of the Pokémon games (and Drill... Read more...

Iwata’s Influence on the Pokémon Series is Profound

Discuss in talkback!

Satoru Iwata’s contributions to the Pokémon series is bigger than you’d think

With Satoru Iwata’s passing on July 11, a huge outpouring of emotion was felt in the Nintendo community. When I heard the news, it was particularly disheartening. To see someone, anyone pass away at such a young age is very sad. But at the same time, while people mourned his loss, many of his contributions... Read more...

Remembering the Genius of Satoru Iwata

Grasping to memorialize a wonderful man who guided a gigantic video game company, programmed like a pro, and held a bunch of bananas.

Even before he became Nintendo's President in 2002, Satoru Iwata was already a legend. He made Balloon Fight. He guided HAL Laboratory to make the Adventures of Lolo, Kirby, and so much more. He helped make EarthBound a reality. He did wonders with early Pokémon games. He, while in a managerial role,... Read more...

Bryan talks about what made him give Ocarina of Time another try.

I had never beaten a Zelda game before until recently when I struck Ganon’s tail one last time and beat the 1998 Nintendo 64 classic The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

There are certain game series that I’ve just never gotten into, for whatever reason. Zelda is one of them. I’ve played... Read more...

Why It's Worth Giving Art Academy a Try WiiU

Home Studiwoah.

Art Academy is a Nintendo franchise that never necessarily felt like “one of the gang” to me. In a literal sense, it absolutely is, just as much as any other Nintendo game. But from the outside looking in, Art Academy came across as a tool provided by Nintendo more than a game within Nintendo’s... Read more...

The first ever Splatoon Splatfest leaves me wondering why I battled in the first place.

Last weekend, I eagerly jumped on Splatoon to do battle during the first ever Splatfest here in North America. The theme was Cats vs. Dogs and I, of course, had decided to do battle for on the side of the cats. I’ve been a cat lover my whole life, so the decision was pretty easy for me.

I spent... Read more...

A look at software development, licensing and the politics of baseball number retirement.

Nintendo held their annual shareholder's meeting on June 26, and before the re-election of the board there was the traditional Q&A session with shareholders. Some of the questions over the years in these sessions have been banal at best, as in the shareholder who took the time to complain about... Read more...
