According to My Nintendo News, Eminem has bought a Wii U. The music producer and rapper revealed his wise purchase on Shade 45, his channel on SiriusXM, and the tweets started flying. Eminem bought the system for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, which will be arriving on November 21st this year, and because he is bored with Bungie’s Destiny...

About a month ago we reported that information had been found surrounding DLC making it's way into Super Smash Bros. for 3DS in the form of stages. Hackers haven't stopped digging since then, and are still delving deep into the game's code, trying to spot any hints that may confirm DLC support or functionality. Recently they found further 'evidence' suggesting that a DLC store will eventually be present. Another idea fanatics have at the moment is that...

When someone says must have it is a fairly bold statement, but when I was deciding how best to word the title for this piece it was really all I could come up with. While this list is 100% subjective to what I feel their next home console must have, I firmly believe by the end of it a lot of you will be shaking your head in agreement. If not, I am curious as to why, and what you would do differently.

Remember, this isn’t a top 10 list, thus the order is entirely arbitrary...

Amiibo is slowly giving us more and more reasons to own them, as another game can be added to the list of support. Hyrule Warriors will be supporting the Link Amiibo at some point in the future and I would be shocked if Princess Zelda isn't too far behind. This also could open the door to more Zelda themed Amiibos such as Ganondorf or even Impa. How the figures will be used in game is unknown at this time but Nintendo promises to share more information about it soon. Could this be an indication that there is a general Nintendo Direct hitting in December...

So way back when we talked about the Link Nendoroid. At the time it was only announced to be coming (along with Luigi)... but that was over a year ago. Back in April we mentioned that he was available for preorder in Japan, along with a slew of exact details. Still, this was only useful if you planned to import, which can be fairly expensive. While the North American pre-orders have been available for a handful of months this year, regretfully we forgot to inform you about them...

Good morning and welcome back friends, fans, and cyber interlopers (you know who you are) to our Tuesday Weekly Feature: the Photoshop Contest! For those who are new to this feature, fear not; this is a very straightforward contest. Simply photoshop or otherwise alter the image, screenshot, or whatever it is we give you for the week and turn it into something hilarious, cool, or anything in between! Once you're fully satisfied with your creation, post it (make sure you're logged in!) in the comments section at the end of this post.

For those Zelda fans who are on the fence about Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo UK has a trailer with a focus on our hero.  In the recently released "A Link to the Smash" video, Nintendo interviews Smash fans (some in costume!) regarding how they feel about the new game and how Link plays in it.  Those interviewed seem to agree that Link has been improved since previous entries and is a very versatile character (e.g. long-range attacks, short-range, etc.), although some note that...

Around these parts our authors spend a lot of time talking about Zelda. When it comes to talking about the future it often is about what our authors personal desires are for the game. This is natural of course, because we can't pretend to speak for anyone but ourselves on such a subjective topic. Thus today is really about you guys and gals. We have a severe itch to really talk about Zelda U, yet Nintendo hasn't given us anything new to chew on. Thus we are left with our hopes, dreams, and desires. Currently that means... finding out what parts or aspects of the old games you want to see return in the new...

Following a plethora of hints, screenshots, and leaks, we now have the official confirmation that what Sakurai hinted at is happening: There will be a Nintendo Direct for the game for which we've all been waiting.   

This Thursday at 3 pm PT, North American and European Smash Bros. fans  will be given the opportunity to livestream a Nintendo Direct featuring Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.   Nintendo has stated that they will be announcing not 10, not 25, but...

Today, Nintendo decided to launch an avalanche of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U screeshots at us, showing off mostly Ness', Wario's and Falco's appearances in the HD version of the game. I personally can't get enough of the detailed textures, especially noting how fresh and clear the floor tiles and backgrounds look. The other character models and their expressions are also worth mentioning, seemingly oozing personality from...
