Being Black in Animal Crossing is Hard Work

Animal Crossing: New Leaf is largely a game about leaving an impression. Whether you're creating your town in the sometimes dull single player or if you're visiting friends to see how they've built up their world, you can do so with a personality and charm that you yourself have created. In many ways, you can be whatever you want to be in New Leaf, unless you want to be black. Then your only option is to tan, tan, tan.


The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds 3DS

In the wake of the E3 Nintendo Direct presentation, a new trailer for the 3DS’ Link to the Past sequel was uploaded on Nintendo’s official website, leaving us with a curious, new title for the anticipated sequel. The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds.


Pokemon X & Y Release Date, New Type Revealed

During their E3 Nintendo Direct presentation this morning, Nintendo revealed a new trailer for Pokemon X and Y. In addition to showcasing the newly announced Kalos region, a handful of new Pokemon have also been revealed.


Super Smash Brothers Wii U/3DS Announced, New Challengers Approach

That there were two Super Smash Brothers games in development was no secret, but it was still great to get that first look in today's Nintendo Direct. The cel-shaded 3DS version that looked nice and smooth, if a little rough when made to fit a TV screen, and the sharp HD Wii U version. These are both going to end up as top games on their respective consoles, if only by their doing more of the same, but with better graphics.


First Next-Gen Sonic gets debut trailer

Sonic the Hedgehog is returning on Wii U and 3DS this year. Sonic Lost Worlds was unveiled at the last Nintendo Direct, although nothing about the game was revealed. That's changed now, with quite a nice trailer introducing the main badniks, as well as some new gameplay. It looks different. It's too early to tell if that's a good thing, although it seems like Sonic may actually be a little slower than he has been before.


The Starship Damrey released in Europe

Level-5 have today announced the release of The Starship Damrey, a sci-fi adventure game for the 3DS. This was first announced as coming westward in the last Nintendo Direct, and places players into a rather odd role. Placed aboard a starship, the player is simply dropped into the game and are left to work out who they are and why they’re there. If done well, that could be very effective, especially since The Starship Damrey has an almost horror-like vibe…


Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D Runs at 30FPS

The original Donkey Kong Country Returns for the Wii ran at a smooth 60FPS, an impressive feat considering the hardware and just how good that game looked. The 3DS port, coming next month, is instead locked at 30FPS. This isn't a good thing, but considering that the graphics still look great and that there's plenty happening on screen at any given time, it's hard to complain too much.


Link to the Past Sequel, Zelda Classics Coming to 3DS

It was a fantastic day to be a Zelda fan yesterday, especially if you've been waiting for something new to play on your 3DS. During the Nintendo Direct, a couple of classic portable Zelda titles were announced to be coming to the 3DS Virtual Console, while those after a purely new experience got their fill as well.


New Mew Pokemon is… Mewtwo

Popular Japanese gaming mag Coro Coro has released information on the Mewtwo-like image of a Pokemon from X and Y that's shaken up the Poke-world. Has Mewtwo cloned himself? Is this the work of Team Rocket? Could this be Mewthree? The truth is perhaps slightly more confusing. The Pokemon that was revealed last week is in fact Mewtwo, just in a different form.


Pokemon X & Y: Mewthree revealed?

A mysterious new Mewtwo-esque Pokemon was recently revealed on the official Pokemon website. Could this be a new Mewtwo form, an unexpected evolution or maybe a whole new Pokemon all together? Having stated the fact that: "It is suspected that the newly discovered Pokemon has some sort of connection with the legendary Mewtwo", any of the three theories are plausible. However, this reveal could be more closely related to the new Pokemon games than we think. Having been named "X" ...
