‘Metroid: Samus Returns’ Is the Nintendo Remake We Need

She has been gone for a long time. Too long—her last featured game, Other M, was released in 2010 to low sales and a mixed critical reception. Fans were resigned that, aside from Super Smash Bros. appearances, they might never see her in a starring role again.

Arms review: Nintendo’s springy limbed fighting game is ridiculous fun | Technology

The premise of Arms requires a substantial suspension of disbelief. The characters in Nintendo’s new fighting game mostly seem to have ended up immersing themselves in this sport because their arms (or, in one case, hair), instead of regular arms, are capital-A Arms – springy and extendable and ending in interchangeable weaponry. This raises some questions: How do they eat? How do they pick their noses? How do they wipe? Of course, a game like …

Nostalgia still marks the way forward for Nintendo

Nostalgia sells. No one knows that better than Nintendo. Much of the company’s intellectual property is well past the 30 year mark at this point, and yet it manages to find new scenarios for its most popular franchises year in and year out, reinventing its stable of characters for each subsequent platform.
