Since being announced at last year’s TGS, details on Mario Tennis Open have been pretty scant. Fortunately, Nintendo brought a playable build to GDC for attendees to try out, and try it out I did!  What is it?  Tennis...with Mario, of course! It’s being developed by Camelot, w...

Kid Icarus Uprising’s multiplayer demo at E3 didn’t make a great first impression. The steep learning curve for the controls and the seemingly simplistic gameplay made it hard to get into, and even harder to really enjoy. Fortunately, Nintendo invited us out to their San Francisco offic...

Nintendo recently invited me to their San Francisco office for a two-hour hands-on session with a nearly-complete version of Kid Icarus Uprising. During those two hours, I was able to see the better part of the first eight chapters, try out a variety of weapons and powers, and even take the new 3DS...

What it is... Colors 3D isn’t so much a game as it is a fun and creative tool, drawing (heh) comparisons to Mario Paint for those old enough to remember it. But what sets Colors 3D apart from nearly every other paint program on the planet is the ability to add depth to your masterpieces thank...

Being a big fan of the Mario Kart franchise growing up, I was ecstatic to get the chance to play a full hour of Mario Kart 7 at Nintendo's Bay Area office last week. So how is it? Well, let me just say that it made me feel like a kid again. Before starting your races, you're greeted with a ...

Super Mario 3D Land makes me feel like I’m seven-years-old again and I love it. While Mario’s past adventures in 3D and even the one on the DS have encompassed the classic nostalgic Nintendo feeling -- the kind that leaves you all warm and fuzzy inside -- they haven’t left me with...

We’ve written about Super Mario 3D Land pretty in-depth before, but we decided to take it out for another spin...a Tanuki tail spin! This time we paid particular attention to the 3D effects that perminate nearly every level, noticing how the rotating platforms nearly seemed to spin right out ...

Nintendo invited us to their office in San Francisco earlier this week to take Star Fox 64 3D out for a test flight. True to its name, this is a 3D remake of the 14 year old Nintendo 64 classic. And like Ocarina of Time 3D before it, the game has been given the all-star treatment, bringing the visu...

One of the few interactive 3DS demos on display was a modern retake on Paddleball, and strangely enough, was one of the best showcases for the 3DS’s potential. Most of the action takes place on the 3D top-screen in a 3D corridor, as opposed to the usual side-view. As the ball bounces toward t...
