Blimey, I forgot about this thing. It was nearly a year ago that the Wii Mini launched in Canada, and earlier this year for the UK release. I say that loosely, because I've still yet to see a Wii Mini being sold at retail, ju...

After a seven-year run, production on the Wii has stopped. According to Nintendo of Japan, manufacturing has ceased on the little console that could. Hell, it ain't so bad. After all, the little bugger ended up selling over a...


It's 2013, and the Wii has yet to sing its last swansong, because XSEED is planning to release Pandora's Tower in North America during the spring season of 2013. Thanks to the Wii U's ability to play Wii games, no one will fe...



The Wii Mini is puzzling. I'd be lying if I said it didn't look neat, but it's also kind of a shame that the Gamecube compatibility and online parts have been stripped from the console. Can't complain when it'll only cost you...


As much fans most otaku are of companies like XSEED, NIS America, Atlus USA and other publishers that specialize in bringing niche Japanese titles overseas, sometimes its easy to forget that sometimes there's more to think ab...

Since Super Climax Heroes is coming out on November 29th, this gave Eighting the opportunity to give Wizard the ability to use his Flame Dragon Style in the game. And just like Rider Generation 2, Fourze will also have ...

I will have to say that Eighting (Bloody Roar series, Tatsunoko vs Capcom, Marvel vs Capcom 3) manage to take things up a notch with Kamen Rider: Super Climax Heroes, since they are changing up the gameplay by allo...



It's not called Dragon Quest Online or Dragon Quest MMO. It's actually called Dragon Quest X, making it a numbered, core franchise release. And yet, everything I've heard and read about it to date, suggests that it's an MMO,...

As details for Square Enix's upcoming Wii/WiiU MMORPG Dragon Quest X started pouring in, the developers revealed that the game would have a special 'Kids Time' that would allow users to play for free. This being the first Dra...

You know what's better than seeing actual gameplay of an upcoming game? Watching someone play it while adding some nice and silly commentary to the experience. Today, Japanator/Destructoid/Flixist Editor Bob Muir edited and f...


Oh Dragon Quest. While I wasn't introduced to the series until VIII, I've since been going back and enjoying the DS remakes of past entries. This franchise is exceedingly traditional and as a result possesses a certain charm ...

Awww yeah, make it rain...fall. It looks like Operation Rainfall is hitting it out of the park, with the Big N finally agreeing to put two of three highly anticipated Wii RPGs out in the New World. Xenoblade Chronicles, which...

Xenoblade Chronicles is coming out April 2, 2012 in America, which still seems surreal, considering that Nintendo of America was steadfast in its refusal to release the game in this country. If it was coming out on April 1, I...

Operation Rainfall may have been successful in bringing Xenoblade to English-speaking shores, but that doesn’t mean fans can just rest on their laurels and wait for the well-regarded Wii RPG to cross the pond. They&rsqu...

You may have heard some news circulating about the gaming tubes that legendary game designer and all-around smiley guy Shigeru “Shiggy” Miyamoto was “retiring from [his] current position” in Nintendo, ...

Finally. Nintendo may have all but abandoned the Wii in its rush to sell you the Wii U, but Nintendo of America's finally decided to throw its stalwarts a bone, in the form of a North American release for Xenoblade Chron...

I'm one of the guilty people that tucked their Wii away in a closet soon after I finished Zelda: Twilight Princess. The system just never did it for me. Well, today has me pulling the old white hope out, a...

So much so that Super Sentai Battle Ranger Cross' similarity to Koei's long-running franchise is almost uncomfortable. Not as uncomfortable as, say, Sengoku BASARA, but enough to say that it falls squarely into the love-...

The rumors are true, according to Nikkei. The controller for Nintendo's upcoming home console will indeed have a six inch touch screen, leaving me scratching my head as to exactly how it will be incorporated into anything at ...

Sometimes I just enjoy posting something that's fun and nerdy as well. I wanted to share with you guys a sweet Super Mario Galaxy medley performed by Diwa de Leon. This guy has mad skillz (yes, with a "z")...

We came across this lovely little list of Top Ten video game characters, and most of these choices come to no surprise. This list was compiled from a poll in which over 35,000 votes were recorded. Without much ado, here is th...

A videogame-playing friend of mine unfamiliar with the glory of Atlus once relayed to me his impressions of the company."Atlus? They only publish anime tie-in games, right?" Ah, the unenlightened. I fully understand...

OH NOES!An interview with NIS-America president Haru Akenaga on Siliconera noted that Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love (which I heartily recommended here) hasn't sold quite as well as expected. This might be pure speculation on ...

According to Gamasutra, former Hudson Entertainment CEO, John Greiner has announced that he has founded the gaming company MonkeyPaw Games. Why does this interest you? Well, he claims that his company will bring over "re...

Even in an environment as friendly to weird Nipponese games, a title like Trauma Team is something of an oddity to westerners. Few other releases provide quite the same kind of medical gameplay, despite their relative success...

Remember how I mentioned that I was starting to get excited about this game? Well, now that Andriasang has confirmed that this special edition soundtrack will be packed in along with the game, I'm even more exc...

I know some of you probably loved Xenosaga -- some of the music was great and Kosmos was fantastic -- but I was never in love with the series like I had been with its estranged predecessor, Xenogears. In my opinion,...

If you didn't know yet, Sakura Wars:: So Long, My Love is out! The greatest game about American mecha-pilot actresses of this generation - no, of all generations - has graced us all with its presence! You can pick up the dual...

It seems your dreams of being both Broadway star and pilot of Star-class transforming steam-powered Spirit Armor suits will have to wait just one more week, as Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love's release date has been pushed back...

And now that I know this fact, I have decided, before playing it, that Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces is going to suck. It's going to suck because it is coming out on January 12th, and I won't be in a position to actually play i...

[As posted on Destructoid]The other day I told you all that the patently awesome Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love for the PS2 and Wii would be arriving on store shelves in February, two-thousand-and-ten. I also told you that peo...

None that I can see from the screenshots and trailer (which you can see below) XSEED have given us, at least. This here Wii game, Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces, will be based on the film adaptation of the original novels. That ...

[As posted on Destructoid]Friends and fellows, open your arms to happily welcome the latest cheeky Japanese game: Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love. The campy steam-and-song-powered interpretation of 1920s America is due to arriv...

[As posted on Destructoid]Yes, I said dance, because the game is about dancing, acting, love, and piloting transforming steam-powered psychic robots. For Chrissakes, your squad is called the New York Combat Revue! Anyway, NIS...

I have to hand it to NIS-America on this one. Thanks to this newest development, they're really serious about making Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love work out on foreign shores. It's up against incredible odds. The most "an...
