Resident Evil HD Gameplay Demo with D.C. Douglas at MCM London Comic Con
It’s been 18 years since Capcom’s survival horror classic Resident Evil was first released on the Sony PlayStation. The success of the game has turned Resident Evil into a huge franchise, resulting in sequels, spin-off titles and movies. A remake of the original Resident Evil was released in 2002 for the Nintendo Gamecube, which saw a complete overhaul of the graphics, as well as new gameplay and story elements. Next year Capcom will be releasing...

Eternal Darkness follow-up Shadow of the Eternals on the way
A follow-up to Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem is likely to see a release next year. Described as a spiritual successor, Shadow of the Eternals is being developed by Precursor Games, which involves two of the writers of the original game – Denis Dyack and Ken McCulloch.

Three Nintendo Franchises That Deserve To Be Resurrected For Wii U

Three Nintendo Franchises That Deserve To Be Resurrected For Wii U
Nintendo president Satoru Iwata recently announced that a new 3D Mario game and a new Mario Kart for the Wii U would be shown at this year’s E3 conference, along with the promise of a new Legend of Zelda game at some point. While I’m sure these will all be great, they are not exactly a surprise. Mario and Zelda have always been well-supported by Nintendo, with at least one release on every major console since the NES. But what of Nintendo’s... 

Five Characters I Want To See In The Next Smash Bros.

Five Characters I Want To See In The Next Smash Bros.
At last year’s E3 conference, Nintendo announced they would be releasing two more Super Smash Bros. games, one for the Wii U and one for the 3DS. But, with no information at this year’s E3 and Masahiro Sakurai (the series’ creator) recently stating that he’s only just started work on it, it seems unlikely that it will be arriving anytime soon. This doesn’t mean that the internet isn’t bristling with anticipation though. Nintendo’s... 

Wii U release date leaked?

Wii U release date leaked?
So the release date for Nintendo’s Wii U console appears to have been accidentally leaked by the gaming accessory company, PDP Gaming. A GameStop managers’ conference was held in Texas today (27th August), where many companies promote their upcoming titles or accessories to store managers. Such events are largely devoid of anything newsworthy. However a representative for PDP appeared to cause a major slip up when they revealed that their range... 

Five Things the Wii U Needs to Succeed

Five Things the Wii U Needs to Succeed
Nintendo is due to release its next home console, the Wii U, between June and December of 2012. Whilst this means the system is still at least four months away, and likely a good few months after that, now is a good time to look at the successes and failures of their past hardware releases and work out what it needs to be successful, both at launch and in the long term. Below, you will find what I think are the five most important things Nintendo...

Four Swords Now Available on the 3DS!
The Legend of Zelda’s 25th anniversary announcements do not seem to be abating, with a re-release of The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Anniversary Edition now available to download for free from the Nintendo 3DS and DSi eShop. Four Swords was originally bundled with A Link To The Past on the Gameboy Advance back in 2002. It was the first ever game in The Legend of Zelda series to feature a multi-player experience, allowing up to four players...

New Luigi’s Mansion 2 Trailer and Screenshots
Luigi’s Mansion was originally released back in 2002 as a launch game to show off the graphical capabilities of Nintendo’s GameCube, boasting impressive glossy graphics for its time. The game branched off from the widely expansive Super Mario series which has graced multi-platforms ever since its debut on the NES in 1983. Mario, Nintendo’s famous mascot, was the one in danger in the game, which allowed Luigi to take the limelight...
