Not only is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild one of the most anticipated games of 2017, it’s also one of the last major titles to ever launch on the Wii U. With that in mind, you can understand why Nintendo is already hyping up the game, despite the fact that Breath of the Wild doesn’t even have a release date.

Nintendo already shut down fan-made Pokemon game people were going crazy over

It took just nine days for Nintendo to kill the fan-made Pokemon Uranium game that took its developers more than nine years to create. The game became an instant hit – not surprising, considering it has the magic “Pokemon” word in its title – running up no less than 1.5 million downloads during that brief period of time. More →

Nintendo NX launch window to feature Mario, Zelda and Pokemon games

Who would have thought that a console might actually need games to succeed? Although Nintendo managed to overcome the odds with the Wii, there was no Wii Sports to keep the Wii U afloat. And so it sank, further and further every year, to the point where some gamers have probably forgotten the console exists.

Nintendo isn’t going to let the NX suffer the same fate.

The device costs $34.99, a more than reasonable price for a dedicated “smartwatch” that only handles Pokemon Go chores. The gadget was initially supposed to launch in late July, but that’s not the case anymore. More →

Pokemon Go Trick

Someone turned the best Pokemon Go hack into an online tool every player needs

By on July 22, 2016 at 10:01 AM.

Someone turned the best Pokemon Go hack into an online tool every player needs

A few days ago, we told you that a few bright developers managed to pull location data out of Pokemon Go and turn it into a Google Maps-based tool that could tell you where Pokemon pop up near your location. Although anyone could use it, the hack required quite a bit of tinkering to make it work, and even some light coding, which made it somewhat difficult for most people to use.

However, since then, someone put all that data into one handy and very user-friendly tool that can be used to discover Pokemon near your location. All you have to do is load a website and you should see Pokemon appear around you on a map.

Better yet, Pokemon Go players in Japan will be the first ones to get access to a brand new feature, one that has the potential to be both annoying and awesome at the same time. More →

7 classic games we wish Nintendo included on its NES Classic Edition console

7 classic games we wish Nintendo included on its NES Classic Edition console

Nintendo is absolutely killing it this week. Not only has PokemanGo gone on to become the most successful mobile launch ever, Nintendo made everyone’s dreams come true this Thursday when they announced the NES Classic Edition, a miniaturized version of the original and iconic NES that launched all the way back in 1985.

The NES Classic Edition is small enough that it can fit in your hand, and in keeping with the times, sports an HDMI cable as opposed to the multi-colored AV cables that graced the original. Priced at $59,99, the NES Classic Edition comes equipped with 30 classic Nintendo titles, including all 3 Super Mario Bros. games, Metroid, Tecmo Bowl, The Legend of Zelda, Excitebike and more.

That’s not bad, but if we had our way, the list of games would have been tweaked just a bit. So without further ado, we’ve compiled a list of classic NES games that stand the test of time that we wished would have made the cut.
