Plus, people are jerks, man! Why should you have to deal with them? Can't we just escape into our digital worlds without…
Shigeru Miyamoto tells ABC News that a Nintendo theme park is "not an impossibility", but that the company's hands are currently full.
The Wii U launch title Nintendo Land is just RIPE for a quality drinking game. And lo, the folks behind Drinking Games For Gamers have come up with one. Three, really. They're pretty good, too—I particularly like the one for the Luigi's Ghost House minigame.
Nintendo Land is no Wii Sports and it is no Super Mario 64. That's the bad news for people who hope Nintendo has once again made a day-one masterpiece for its newest console.
Things are picking up pace here at Kotaku now that we have a Wii U in the office. Our own Stephen Totilo and Jason Schreier have been playing the heck out of the thing, and bring you two reviews today.
The Wii U will finally let Nintendo users download full-size games to a Nintendo console (legally!) but today we learned about the pros and cons of how Nintendo will let people do this. There are some catches that you probably want to know about if you think there's any chance you'd be downloading the next Super Mario…
I have a Wii U, so I shouldn't be complaining. I'm not. I'm observing. And my observation is this, my friends: observing a Wii U game is a brand-new skill I have not yet mastered.
In Nintendo's Miiverse, players can register new friends and follow them. (There is also a direct messaging function.)
While Nintendo's making sure to have at least one big first-party title available for the launch of their new console in the form of New Super Mario Bros U, some of the company's other heavy hitters are quite as lucky. Metroid Blast—part of the themed mini-game collection Nintendo Land—isn't quite a full Samus Aran…
I already declared that Wii U launch game Nintendo Land is Nintendo's most important game of 2012 and it wouldn't be that much of a stretch to suggest it could be their best game. It's been an ok year for Nintendo releases, but it's not like the makers of Ocarina of Time and Wii Sports have recently released any…
Like Wii Sports was to the Wii, Nintendo is going to need something small, fun and easy to learn if "new" players are going to get hooked on the upcoming Wii U.

The Wii U console and its distinctive GamePad control device have been floating around convention floors and meeting rooms since its unveiling at last year's E3. But, for one reason or five others, I hadn't gotten my hands on one myself. At least not until yesterday, when Stephen Totilo and I wandered around…
The most important game for Nintendo this year is Nintendo Land. It is the launch title for the Wii U, which is perhaps the riskiest console Nintendo has ever created—yes, riskier even than the Wii.
There is some sort of Z-Fero style racing game, Nintendo producer Katsuya Eguchi showed today during an after-hours E3 showcase of the Wii U's launch game.
Ghosts? Check. Four color-coded characters? Check. Chasing each other around a dark, hallway-ridden setting? Check. Watch Stephen play the ghost in Luigi's Ghost Mansion in Nintendo Land, and get demolished by the Nintendo reps playing the ghost hunters in this video.
