Pokémon Go wishlist: 6 features that we want to see added to the game

Pokémon Go is a mobile phenomenon at the moment, but I have a sneaking suspicion that everyone’s going to be bored of it by this time next month. It’s just not built to stand the test of time, with so few things to keep players coming back, or even to keep them engaged in the first place.

I’m here to provide Niantic Labs with some friendly suggestions that might give Pokémon Go the lasting power that it desperately needs. More →

If you own a smartphone, chances are good that you’ve either downloaded or thought about downloading Pokémon Go this week.

Although The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wind was Nintendo’s focus at E3 2016 this year, it wasn’t the only game featured on the company’s two-day live stream. Rather, Nintendo kicked things off with an in-depth look at Pokemon Sun and Moon, the two newest entries in the popular portable franchise.

The traditional press conferences are over, but Nintendo still has something interesting in store for E3 2016. As we explained last month, Nintendo will forego both a stage presentation and a Nintendo Direct live stream in favor of a more laid-back stream from the Nintendo Treehouse team, featuring some of the company’s biggest upcoming games on Wii U and 3DS.

After all of the leaks, announcements and live streams that took place this week, it’s hard to imagine that the video game studios have anything left for E3 2016.

Nintendo NX reportedly delayed to 2017 to add VR functionality

Two months ago, Nintendo confirmed that its next-gen NX console would release in March 2017. This came as a shock to some gamers, as all signs were pointing to Nintendo revealing the console at E3 in June and launching it sometime this fall. But according to a new DigiTimes report, Nintendo still has plenty of work to do before it can think about bringing the console to market.

Nintendo’s ‘Fire Emblem’ and ‘Animal Crossing’ mobile games will both be free

Late last month, Nintendo revealed that its next two mobile games would be based on the popular Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem franchises, but no specific release dates were announced. We still don’t know exactly when we’ll see the apps, but Nintendo does have some news regarding the games this week: both will be free-to-play with in-app purchases. More →

Nintendo’s E3 2016 plans have been revealed – here’s everything you need to know

Last week, Nintendo dropped a bombshell when it announced that it would only bring one playable game to E3 2016. In previous years, Nintendo has had dozens of demo stations for upcoming 3DS and Wii U games, but this year, The Legend of Zelda for Wii U will be the only Nintendo game on the show floor.

Some things just go well together. Peanut butter and chocolate, the internet and hateful comments from anonymous strangers, Nintendo and hip shoes… wait, what was that one about Nintendo?

According to shoe blog Sole Collector, German shoe retailer 43einhalb has let slip that Vans and Nintendo will be collaborating this summer for a line of Nintendo-themed sneakers featuring some of the company’s famous characters.

Nintendo NX Release Date

Nintendo announces new iPhone and Android games, NX console launches in March

Nintendo announces new iPhone and Android games, NX console launches in March

Nintendo’s Wii U console has been nothing short of an absolute disaster. The company was revitalized by the original Wii, which completely revolutionized console gaming and extended its reach beyond “gamers” by offering an experience that appealed to a much wider range of users. Unfortunately, lightning didn’t strike twice and Nintendo’s followup with the Wii U has been a total mess. Quality games have been few and far between, and the Wii U did nothing to enhance the user experience.

So now, Nintendo is trying to look ahead. Following yet another bleak earnings report on Wednesday morning, the company made two key announcements — one concerning its next-generation home video game console currently known as “NX,” and a second regarding upcoming new iPhone and Android games.

Star Fox Zero review

Star Fox Zero review: Nintendo’s golden age returns to the Wii U

Star Fox Zero review: Nintendo’s golden age returns to the Wii U

In 2016, the most common selling point for a game is a near-limitless amount of content. Whether it’s the expansive maps of The Witcher 3 and Grand Theft Auto V, the addictive level progression system of Call of Duty or the user-generated world of Super Mario Maker, gamers expect to get their money’s worth.

But in 1997, we didn’t need 80-hour stories and prestige modes to bring us back to a game over and over again. All we needed was great gameplay, and that’s exactly what Star Fox 64 offered every Nintendo 64 owner two decades ago.

Nearly 20 years later, Nintendo is trying to recapture the magic.
