I didn’t believe the rumor about a Mario crossover game with Ubisoft’s Rabbids. I thought it was just something somebody with a lot of time and an overactive imagination came up with.

Earthlock: Festival of Magic is a brand new turn-based rpg for the Wii U eshop. Yes I just said a brand new game for the Wii U!

So to get footage and a demo on the same day was a shock and delight. I have to admit I’ve been pretty excited…

Nintendo Direct: Third Party Support Strong, Nintendo Publisher of the Year?

Yesterday's Nintendo Direct was incredible, with 45 minutes of non-stop announcements, reveals, and details on all our favorite announced - and previously unannounced - titles coming to the Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. Nintendo has to be in line for Publisher of the Year for all that they have accomplished in 2017, leaving the Wii U and the criticisms that surrounded the company during that time way in the past. With strong 3rd party support on the horizon, and tons of great titles left for 2017, it's obvious to me that Nintendo ...

There was a Nintendo Direct today! If you missed it, please check out the video below and then please come back for my impressions on it. I have a split opinion about today’s Nintendo Direct.
