The holiday shopping season isn't even in full swing yet though it looks like we already know what one of the hottest selling items will be: Nintendo's pint sized NES Classic Edition. Demand is red hot for the miniature version of the most popular game consoles of all time, and that's led to inflated price tags on eBay and through third-party sellers. Don't give in. Walmart is making available a limited number of NES Classic Edition consoles each day through the end of the work week. Like the handful of other vendors hawking the classic console, Walmart quickly sold out of its inventory at $60... Read more...
If you’ve been anxious to dive into some officially-sanctioned Mario gaming on your iOS device, the wait is nearly over. Nintendo announced this morning that Super Mario Run, which was originally revealed by Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto during the iPhone 7 keynote, will be available on the iPhone and the iPad beginning December 15th. While Super Mario Run will initially only be available on the iOS platform, it will eventually make its way over to Android devices at a later date (hopefully some time during 2017). There will be three modes included in the game, all of which can be tried out for... Read more...
If you couldn't get your hands on the NES Classic Edition when it first went on sale yesterday, you weren't alone. Initial supplies of the retro gaming console were extremely limited, with some brick and mortar locations receiving just six units per store (really, Nintendo?). As we noted yesterday, trying to purchase the NES Classic Edition from an online retailer wasn’t much better, as most quickly went out of stock (or never had any stock to begin with). Many gamers penned their hopes on getting the console from Amazon, which advertised that the NES Classic Edition would be available to purchase... Read more...
If you were dead set on having a bit of officially-sanctioned Nintendo gaming nostalgia in your hands, your chances of scoring the NES Classic Edition at retail price are quickly dwindling. The retro gaming console went on sale today (retailers did not offer pre-orders) and is quickly selling out online. Taking a quick peek online, Target, Walmart, Toys R Us, Best Buy, Gamestop and B&H Photo are all sold out of the NES Classic Edition. Brick and mortar stores that had stock were quickly depleted. Perhaps the last hope for people that would like to score the console at retail price any time... Read more...
It’s an almost certainty that the upcoming Nintendo NES Classic Edition console will be one of the runaway hits of the holiday shopping season. Nintendo first announced the pint-sized gaming console back in July, and it brings with it all the retro-gaming goodness that those of us who grew up as 80s kids loved. However, if there’s one thing that is somewhat of an annoyance for potential customers, it has to be the NES Classic Edition’s wired controllers. While wired controllers are in keeping with the original NES, in which gamers usually sat on the floor directly in front of the TV, they don’t... Read more...
Whether or not the Nintendo Switch goes down in history as a successful console launch or a flop is predicated on how interested gamers are in gaming on the go. As we learned, the Nintendo Switch's defining characteristic is that it can be uprooted from the living room and act as a mobile console. But in making that pitch, Nintendo was curiously silent about the touchscreen display. That's okay because additional information about the Nintendo Switch's screen since its official unveiling last week is starting to leak to the web. Assuming the latest leaks are correct—and they come from sources who... Read more...
If you are dying to know more about the upcoming Nintendo Switch (previously referred to as the Nintendo NX), the wait won't be much longer. Nintendo of America announced on Twitter that it will be revealing pricing, software lineup, and the launch date during a livestream event on January 12th, 2017. An introductory video for the Nintendo Switch was released last week. What do we know about the Nintendo Switch? The Switch is a gaming console that can rest in a dock, be played by multiple people and easily “switch” to a portable device. There are also detachable Joy-Con controllers that can be...

For many old-school gamers, few games hold a place in their heart quite like the original Super Mario Bros. for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Today, the game might look primitive - because it is  obviously, comparatively to today's title - but back then, it proved oh-so satisfying, and not to mention challenging. However, despite the game now being 31 years old, it's still played by many, reminding us of simpler times, or at least to giving us that nostalgic glow. While you might have completed the game a handful of times since its release over three decades ago, there are some folks... Read more...
What was previously known as the Nintendo NX is finally here. Nintendo today just unveiled its Switch gaming console which pretty much confirms all the rumors that we’ve been hearing about the hybrid gaming console for the past few months. Yes, the Switch has detachable controllers. Yes, the Switch can be docked to play games on your big screen TV. And yes, the Switch features an NVIDIA Tegra processor and GeForce-class graphics. As promised last night, Nintendo revealed all this morning with a three-minute trailer which showcases the console's abilities. The trailer starts off showing a man playing... Read more...
It’s happening! After months of leaks, speculation, and encouraging words from game publishers, the Nintendo NX will make its global debut tomorrow. Thursday morning at 10 AM EST, Nintendo will release a preview trailer that will give us just a glimpse at what gamers will have look forward to when the console hits store shelves in March. We already know that the Nintendo NX will be a hybrid console, as that revelation was confirmed by Pokémon Company head Tsunekazu Ishihara. “The NX is trying to change the concept of what it means to be a home console device or a handheld device,” said Ishihara....

Ubisoft has got Nintendo’s back. Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot remarked that he was a huge fan of the upcoming Nintendo NX and is confident that it will put the company back on the console map. “The new Nintendo [console] is a fantastic machine," stated Guillemot. "It's really a new approach, it's really Nintendo, [which is] coming with something new again. We love it."Guillemot is partly supportive of the Nintendo NX because he believes that it will lead to greater creativity at Ubisoft. He argued that gamers are now more open to new hardware and therefore more willing to test innovative products.... Read more...
For those gamers that honed their button-mashing skills on the original NES during the 80s and early 90s, Nintendo went right for the jugular in July when it announced the NES Classic Edition. Looking like an NES that got hit with a shrink ray, the NES Classic Edition comes bundled with 30 games and a single controller (which is also patterned after the original). Earlier this summer, we learned that the NES Classic Edition, which connects to your HDTV using an HDMI cable, will offer a number of display modes that will help you better relive your earliest gaming memories. As we reported, Pixel... Read more...
