Four Reasons Fire Emblem Could Be Nintendo’s Best IP

Nintendo often comes under attack for various reasons. Usually, these criticisms are based around their continued use of their successful IPs and the idea that they are all quite flawed.

Puzzle & Dragons Super Mario Bros. Edition is a Thing

Some people turn their nose up at Nintendo. “All they do is push out the same franchises again and again; Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong.” And they’re not wrong.

1994 was a big year for Donkey Kong. Not only was there the enormously wonderful Donkey Kong Country (which, thank goodness, is finally going to be made available in the eShop) but there was another, often forgotten, addition to the series.
