The King Nintendo Fanboy explains why the latest concert tour failed to impress.

When the symphonies for The Legend of Zelda were announced back in 2011, I was pretty excited. I eventually attended three different Zelda concerts and left each one impressed, though I did wish the second season had more new content than it ended up having. The bottom line was, I enjoyed each performance.

The King Nintendo Fanboy remembers a lost Nintendo tradition in honor of its 20th anniversary.

Twenty years ago, Nintendo of America was starting their online community on AOL known as The Loud House. This community let fans talk with Nintendo reps in chat rooms, participate in trivia contests, and allowed fans to just have a new and evolving interactive experience with Nintendo in a way that was previously impossible.

The King Nintendo Fanboy weighs in on a growing Amiibo problem.

Since Amiibo were announced I've been worried about the potential problems with trying to collect them. Up until now I feel Nintendo has been offering each Amiibo figure at a fair price and in a fair way. Sure, there have been some supply issues, but that is another story.

Starting in September,... Read more...

It exists on Wii U and we know the date, but the final game needs a few things.

It wasn't an RPG, but there was a major announcement at the Pokémon World Championships as many expected. The launch of Pokkén Tournament for Wii U in Spring 2016 - you can probably pencil in May 27 for North America - portends to another busy summer for me following the launches of Mario Kart and Splatoon the last two years.

Neal sits down and tries to sort out Disney Infinity, Lego Dimensions, Skylanders, and Amiibo.

Since the toys-to-life trend erupted in 2011 when Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure debuted, each year has been more bombastic than the last, whether it was the addition of numerous Skylanders Minis and Traps, the launch of Disney Infinity in 2013, or the debut of Amiibo in late 2014. This year might... Read more...

Super Mario Maker’s Slow Unlocking Feels More Frustrating Than Fun WiiU

While creating Mario Maker stages is wonderful and intuitive, it takes way too long to unlock all of the items and enemies.

When I first heard about Super Mario Maker’s measured rollout where you’re slowly given access to more creation tools over the course of nine days, I wasn’t fazed. Having access to all of the tools at once would be intimidating. I thought it made sense and wouldn’t be limiting. After a night... Read more...

Temper Your Expectations For N64 Virtual Console WiiU

Yes, Microsoft has an advantage right now. And even once it corrects, it's still going to be close.

The release of Rare Replay on Xbox One, with a full quarter of its catalogue being N64 titles, immediately sent the internet into a frenzy over Nintendo's lack of Virtual Console N64 releases to this point. Kotaku editor-in-chief Stephen Totilo mentioned in his review of Rare Replay that there were more N64 games on Xbox One than on the Wii U.
