Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga 3DS Review
Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowsers Minions released today on the Nintendo 3DS; as the title is essentially broken into two components - Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and Bowsers Minions - we though we would review each separately. Today, we are looking at the recreation of the Gameboy Advanced classic RPG title. Is grabbing it on the 3DS solely to replay this classic adventure worth it, regardless of the Bowsers Minions additions? We think so, read on to find out why!
Nintendo will Remake Minish Cap, Right?
With the upcoming release of Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga on the Nintendo 3DS - available at retail and on the Nintendo eShop on October 6 - I started wondering what other great Nintendo Gameboy Advanced titles we could possibly see remastered on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems in the near future. Many people have been calling for the death of the Nintendo 3DS ever since the Nintendo Switch launched, citing a variety of reasons, most predominantly that Nintendo should focus their time and money on the Switch. I disagree.

Check out the video below for the DLC reveal and then please come back for my impressions of it. The Link outfit in Monster Hunter Stories looks very good. Even…
DLC Coming to Fire Emblem Warriors on Nintendo Switch
Nintendo has been going down the DLC road a lot since they launched the excellent track and character packs for Mario Kart 8 on the Nintendo Wii U, and for the most part, they've been doing a really good job with it, providing large, meaningful content updates for a great price. These DLC packs have extended the life cycle of previous games, and Nintendo is hoping they can once again make Fire Emblem Warriors a game that you will continue to play well after launch.

I’m not going to lie: I was really excited to play Metroid: Samus Returns.…
Chicken Wiggle is on sale! Now is the time to buy it for 3DS
I gave Chicken Wiggle on the 3DS a 10 out of 10 in my review. I do not give out 10s lightly. In fact, the only other game I can remember giving a 10 (ever) was Paper Mario: Color Splash. Chicken Wiggle is really that good! And now is the time to buy it if you haven’t. Chicken Wiggle is now on sale via the 3DS eshop! The sale started today (9-14) and will run through September 28. The game’s…
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 systems were the 'it' items to own this year.
