  1. Detective Pikachu released in Japan a couple years ago and found some pretty impressive success. So much, in fact, that Hollywood went to work on securing the rights to adapt it to the big screen as Pokémon Go fever swept the globe. That adaptation is slated to be entering production this year with Ryan Reynolds of Deadpool fame taking on the lead role of Detective Pikachu. Rob Letterman, known for his takes on Gulliver's Travels and Goosebumps will direct the project. Currently, the film has a release date of May 10, 2019. And all of that was done without Detective Pikachu ever seeing a Western release... until later this year. The quirky Japanese tale of a talking pikachu with an attitude and a mind for mysteries will be releasing on March 23 of this year for the 3DS. It focuses on the relationship between Detective Pikachu and a young boy named Tom Goodman who get roped into an escalating series of puzzles and crimes that threaten to tear their city apart.

  3. Today, Nintendo unleashed a condensed series of announcements onto an unsuspecting world (except for the slip-up when Gamestop tweeted out about an unannounced Nintendo Direct). The Nintendo Direct adopted a new mini format that narrowed down the announcement window to fifteen minutes. To start things off on an interesting note, Nintendo announced that a revamped version of The World Ends with You would be released on the Nintendo Switch sometime this year. The cult classic DS title's re-release might be a sign of a possible sequel in the works. Pokkén Tournament DX will be receiving two waves of additional DLC characters to bolster the ranks of the Pokémon fighting game. The first wave release will include Aegislash and two support Pokémon; Mega Rayquaza and Mimikyu. Blastoise will come in the second wave accompanied by support Mew and Celebi. The DLC will also include avatar customizations. A new Kirby title with four-player co-op is in the works. Kirby Star Allies offers new powers, enemies, and sets players onan adventure to save Dream Land from a deadly alien foe. Star Allies will release on March 16 for the Nintendo Switch. Building off of that announcement, the demos for Kirby Battle Royale and Dragon Quest Builders are both available today on the Nintendo eShop. Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition releases on the Nintendo Switch. It combines all of the content released for the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS into one package for the Switch. It also includes outfits for Link and Zelda based on the designs in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. A fresh Mario Tennis game has appeared! Mario Tennis Aces offers a crazy campaign complete with tennis-based boss battles, the first in the series since the Game Boy Advance version of Mario Tennis. Also, Waluigi looks like he came ready to play hardcore. Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA will be coming to Nintendo Switch later this year. the action RPG has players fighting for survival after being shipwrecked on a mysterious, monster-filled island. Players will have to build a base and rescue other survivors in order to find a way off of the island and uncover its secrets. A new update will be coming to Super Mario Odyssey. After beating the story, a new mode called Balloon World will unlock. Players can talk with Luigi to access these balloon-based activities. Players will be able to hide or find balloons for each other. It's essentially online hide-and-go-seek with balloons and an online leaderboard. The update also includes snazzy new duds for Mario and filters for taking in-game pictures. Perhaps the strangest announcement of the day was SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy, a spin-off fighting game featuring the women of the SNK fighting game franchise. Players will be able to pull off combos and moves with just one button. To finish off opponents, players will have to initiate their Dream Finish move. Characters can all be customized with a variety of outfits. Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle will be receiving a DLC update that adds Donkey Kong into the fray. The package releases this spring. Pay Day 2 will be releasing on the Nintendo Switch on February 27. The Switch version adds a new character as a timed exclusive, a Japanese hacker named Joy with a digital, shifting mask. From Zoink Games and EA, Fe will be coming to Switch on February 16. It focuses on the journey of a small, singing creature on a journey to heal the magical forest it inhabits with its song. If indie games are more your speed, Celeste seems to be a promising platformer with a charming pixel aesthetic that releases on January 25. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze re-releases on Nintendo Switch May 4. The new version comes with a new mode featuring the surfboard-wielding Funky Kong, a character who's too cool to die. It offers a fresh, more laid back approach to the charming-yet-difficult Nintendo platformer. finally, to close out the announcements, Nintendo unveiled Dark Souls Remastered! The From Software classic will finally make its way onto a Nintendo system while also offering a bevy of improvements over the original release (which still totally holds up). You can watch the full video of the Nintendo Direct Mini presentation below!

  5. We'll finally be seeing From Software games on the Nintendo Switch! To close out their Nintendo Direct Mini presentation today, Nintendo revealed the first trailer for Dark Souls Remastered, a rework of the original Dark Souls that aims to revamp the game on a technical level for more modern hardware. That doesn't mean that Dark Souls Remastered will only be available on the Nintendo Switch (though what an exclusive that would be). The remaster will also be releasing on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Each version of the game will have its own improvements as follows: PlayStation 4/Xbox One (1080p, 60 fps) PlayStation 4 Pro/Xbox One X (Upscaled 4K, 60 fps) PC (Native 4K, all textures 2K unconverted, 60 fps) Nintendo Switch (TV mode: 1080p, 30 fps; Handheld mode: 720p 30 fps) In addition, there will be some improvements to the backend systems that supported the original Dark Souls release. The password matchmaking from Bloodborne and Dark Souls 3 will be integrated into Dark Souls Remastered, which should make it easier to connect with specific friends for online play. For that matter, the number of people who can enter the same world has been upped from four to six. In a break from how From Software has supported online play in the past, the developer will now have dedicated servers for online play rather than peer-to-peer connections. All of this should invigorate and smooth the online Dark Souls experience for both newcomers and veterans alike. Dark Souls Remastered releases on May 25 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch.

  7. Celeste Mountain looms over a tantalizing mystery, one that Madeline, our young protagonist, determines to uncover. Using Madeline's reservoir of stamina, players must navigate the treacherous terrain and dangers to discover new characters and locations. Mastering her mid-air dash will be crucial to making progress. For people who are more invested in the story than the challenging gameplay, developer Matt Makes Games has included an assist mode. Assist mode allows players to tweak difficulty to find the most enjoyable way to play through Celeste. Options range from slowing down time to pure invincibility. Celeste also caters to the hardcore gaming crowd with a unique challenge mode for the most skilled players called The B-Side Chapters. Nintendo will launch Celeste as a digital title for the Nintendo Switch on January 25.

  9. Nintendo announced the return of Waluigi today in the mistitled Mario Tennis Aces. The new tennis title starring a roster of the who's who of the Mushroom Kingdom includes everyone's favorite lanky lunk, Waluigi, and will offer the first story mode the series has seen since Mario Tennis Power Tour for the Game Boy Advance. All of that practical information gets away from the central question - just who is Waluigi? As far as I can tell, Waluigi is just some guy who likes to play tennis quite a bit. He initially appeared in the original Mario Tennis title for the N64 and has since appeared in a wide variety of sport and party games alongside the Mario series' most prominent characters. He's never been a major antagonist to the Mario brothers, though he is depicted as being a rival to Luigi for largely unexplained reasons. So, like, what's his deal? All I can figure is that Waluigi was some random guy that Wario knew to be good at tennis. That led to him being brought onto the court to face Mario and Luigi. Ever since then, people in Mushroom Kingdom society must have either liked him enough for found him useful enough to invite to numerous other tennis tournaments, baseball games, golfing holidays, karting adventures, and even those galaxy-famous Mario Parties. Having no investment in the outcome of these events or really anything to do with the central conflicts between the factions of the Mushroom Kingdom, Waluigi often gets cast in a villainous light when in reality he's the true neutral of any given situation. In fact, the only thing Waluigi seems to care about is the spirit of fair play. Surely he knew who the Mario brothers were when Wario asked him for help and roped him into these high-level shenanigans with the most influential people in the land. He must have known that he'd be going up against ghosts, dragon monsters, giant piranha plants, and the most famous people in the world if he agreed, certainly a dangerous position. Nevertheless, he agreed to help Wario so that the tennis match could be a fair 2v2. Really, what I'm getting at here is just - look at that header image. Waluigi clearly lives for Tennis. The power stance, the glint of determination in his eyes, the customized racket, the proud visor complete with hair swoosh; all of it screams of a man who wants nothing more than to play tennis and do his best. Nintendo, make 2018 the year of Waluigi. Mario Tennis Aces releases sometime this spring for the Nintendo Switch.

  11. Nintendo announced a new Kirby game coming this March titled Kirby Star Allies. The new adventure pits Kirby and co. against the forces of a new sub-space enemy with a bunch of new abilities and opportunities. Kirby Star Allies thrusts players into a new world with enemies armed with crazy abilities that can be turned against them. Star Allies adds the spider and artist abilities, allowing Kirby to wrap his enemies in big balls of silk and summon artistic creations to do battle on his behalf, respectively. On top of that, players can now toss their companions around as a new way of getting the drop on enemies. Perhaps the most exciting element of Kirby Star Allies lies in the possibilities it presents with 4-player co-op. Up to four friends can team up to take on the forces of evil that threaten Dream Land. In addition to the tossing mechanic, players can combine their abilities in unique ways, like using a water-based ability and a freezing ability to create ice projectiles. Players can even find group-specific abilities that allow them to combine their strength into a friend train or a friend star, opening up new paths and opportunities in certain areas. Kirby Star Allies releases on March 16 for the Nintendo Switch.

  13. Over a decade after its release on the Nintendo DS, the quirky JRPG The World Ends with You makes its way onto Nintendo's flagship console. The remastered game will be fully titled, The World Ends with You -Final Remix- and offers a slew of improvements over the DS cult classic. For the uninitiated, The World Ends with You tells the story of a teenage boy who becomes trapped in an insidious game that threatens to erase him from existence. Other players become both allies and enemies as they all race to win the game and avoid a fate worse than death. Relying on a unique rhythm combat system, The World Ends with You has stuck with fans for years. Visual improvements are apparent in the trailer, but perhaps the most interesting addition will be a "new scenario" for players to dig into. Nintendo was a bit vague on exactly what that new scenario might entail. Perhaps the expanded content might hint at a possible sequel to The World Ends with You, something that both the fans and the original creators have been wanting for quite some time. The appearance of characters from the game within Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance in 2012 helped to keep the hope alive. The World Ends with You -Final Remix- will release sometime this year for the Nintendo Switch.

  15. The original Game Boy was home to many creative and interesting monochrome platformers in the early 90s. The Game Boy Color came along in 1998 to bring some color to the mobile gaming market, but most of the old Game Boy classics remained forever devoid of color. That is, until hackers began getting a hold of them. Someone going by the handle Toruzz released a ROM hack of Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins into the wild earlier this week. The Game Boy original introduced the world to Wario, put Mario into outer space, and was just one of the best platformers the brick-sized Game Boy had to offer. Toruzz work on the modified ROM is, quite frankly, beautiful. The entire palate of the game breathes a living retro vibe that would feel right at home on a gaming system from the 90s. Not only that, but the flickering screen that pained players back in the day is no more in Toruzz's version. The hacker also added Luigi as a playable character and rebalances some aspects of the original game. It's like looking into an alternate dimension where Super Mario Land 2 was remastered for the Game Boy Color - and that's really pretty neat! The hack is fully titled Super Mario Land 2 DX and it even has its own trailer!

  17. Nintendo recently released The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Master Works, the official artbook of Breath of the Wild. The book features art from different stages of development that Breath of the Wild went through. These sometimes come with notes from the dev team to give further context to the pieces of in-progress art. One of those notes states that Eiji Aonuma and his crack team of Zelda developers have already begun work on the next Legend of Zelda title. With The Legend of Zelda being one of Nintendo's tent pole franchises, it's not surprising to learn that the next Zelda is already in the works. Just don't think that we will be seeing it anytime soon - Breath of the Wild released this year, six years after Skyward Sword. It wasn't even until 2013 that we saw the first hints of what Breath of the Wild would even become. Expect the next Zelda title to surface sometime in 2019 or 2020. Meanwhile, it seems like Nintendo is also hard at work on new handheld Zelda titles with a separate team working on those entries in the series. The possibility remains open that those new handheld Zeldas could appear on the Switch, too. Where would you like to see The Legend of Zelda series go in the future?

  19. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild received its second expansion today in the form of The Champions' Ballad. The DLC pack comes with a wide variety of additions to the core Breath of the Wild experience. Here's what to expect if you're thinking of dropping some money on the expansion: A new dungeon and additional shrines The One-Hit Obliterator, a new weapon The Master Cycle Zero, a snazzy motorcycle A questline that has Link aiding Kass the Bard to find the final pieces of a lost song Nine additional treasure chests that hold different armors and outfits Horse armor Players will have to free all of the Divine Beasts in order to unlock the Master Cycle Zero to allow Link to rip-roar his way across the wilderness. The accordion playing bird, Kass, hopes to reconstruct his master's last song, setting Link off on a quest to find the missing verses. The completed song provides new information about the history of Breath of the Wild's heroes, Revali, Mipha, Daruk, and Urbosa, as well as Princess Zelda. Like with Link's new motorcycle, Kass' quest only opens up once the Divine Beasts are freed. The treasure chests hidden across the world add in things like the Island Lobster Shirt from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, the helmet of Zant, Ravio's hood, and Phantom Ganon's armor. These chests can also contain the ancient bridle and saddle for Link's trusty steed. In addition to looking neat, the bridle allows the horse to be spurred more times and the ancient saddle will somehow help the horse to hear the player's calls from farther away. The expansion is already out in the wild, so if the features appeal to you, pick it up for the Nintendo Wii U or Switch. View full article
  20. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild received its second expansion today in the form of The Champions' Ballad. The DLC pack comes with a wide variety of additions to the core Breath of the Wild experience. Here's what to expect if you're thinking of dropping some money on the expansion: A new dungeon and additional shrines The One-Hit Obliterator, a new weapon The Master Cycle Zero, a snazzy motorcycle A questline that has Link aiding Kass the Bard to find the final pieces of a lost song Nine additional treasure chests that hold different armors and outfits Horse armor Players will have to free all of the Divine Beasts in order to unlock the Master Cycle Zero to allow Link to rip-roar his way across the wilderness. The accordion playing bird, Kass, hopes to reconstruct his master's last song, setting Link off on a quest to find the missing verses. The completed song provides new information about the history of Breath of the Wild's heroes, Revali, Mipha, Daruk, and Urbosa, as well as Princess Zelda. Like with Link's new motorcycle, Kass' quest only opens up once the Divine Beasts are freed.

  21. During the announcement of Mega Man 11, Capcom also responded to fans who have been requesting support for the Nintendo Switch when it comes to the Mega Man series. That support comes in the form of Mega Man 11, the total Mega Man X collection, and Mega Man 1-10! The Mega Man Legacy Collection includes Mega Mans 1-6 and The Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 consists of Mega Mans 7-10 (that's a lot of Mega Mans!). These will all be coming to the Switch in early Spring 2018. One minor change will be made to the new version the first collection; a rewind feature allows players to roll back time and undo mistakes, Braid style.

  23. River City has been one of gaming's longest running franchises and Natsume has something special planned for the 30th anniversary with the release of River City: Rival Showdown. Officially, the River City games are part of the Kunio-Kun series, which have proven to be massively popular in Japan. There have been 52 games made related to the series if you include collections and spin-offs, which is, quite frankly, a staggering number. River City: Rival Showdown stands as a remake of the original River City Ransom that completely overhauls the story to provide multiple paths and endings, a fighting system that reflects more modern sensibilities, and a lot of other changes that are sure to reward longtime River City fans. A day-night cycle has been introduced along with super special moves, 2-player local co-op, difficulty settings, and a bonus Double Dragon fighting game. "Natsume is proud to continue the Kunio-Kun legacy with River City: Rival Showdown and welcome players back to the city and its residents in a brand-new way!" said Hiro Maekawa, president and CEO of Natsume. "Rival Showdown is a big milestone for the Kunio-Kun series as it marks the 30th anniversary for the series and it evolves the franchise in a major way." River City: Rival Showdown follows Kunio after he survives an attack by two unknown assailants. His friend Riki's girlfriend has also gone missing, and Kunio only has three days to solve the mystery of her disappearance. The only problem? An army of thugs and gang members seem bent on stopping him from finding her. River City: Rival Showdown is available today on 3DS.

  25. If a recent trademark filing is to be believed, the Nintendo 64 may not be the next console Nintendo gives the Classic Edition treatment. First reported by Anime News Network, a Japanese trademark Twitter account that posts trademark registrations tweeted a filing that included a picture of a Game Boy (in the header above). The trademark was listed under the category of " Programs for household video games" among other, similar distinctions. Bear in mind this could always go nowhere, but its worth noting similar reports surfaced for the SNES Classic before that was announced. Take a look at the tweet yourself here, but keep in mind that its all in Japanese. What do you think of the likelihood that this leads to a Game Boy Classic Edition? Would you be interested in one?
