With the announcement of a new piece of hardware, the older piece of hardware tends to be left behind in the shadows. The original GameBoy had to make way for the Color version, and the GameBoy Advance lost its support once the DS was out. But the big N remains adamant that it is still commited to the DS.
The Legend of Zelda series has been going quite strong for the past 20 years, ever since The Legend of Zelda first debuted on the NES in 1986. Yet for all the enjoyment I’ve gotten over the series, I have to admit one thing: there’s not a lot of innovation. Series creator Shigeru Miyamoto even admitted that the new Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword wouldn’t be a radical departure for […]
We here at The Gaming Vault thought we’d give a quick run-down of our first impressions and opinions on Nintendo’s press conference. Unlike Microsoft, Nintendo jumped straight to the point and gave us a first look at the new Legend of Zelda title, which looked like a mix between Twilight Princess and Wind Waker. Shigeru Miyamoto struggled a bit with his live demo, but from what I’ve heard from the […]
[UPDATE] This game is happening. It was officially confirmed by Nintendo during their E3 press conference. We’ve just gotten word that the first-person shooter that changed everything we know about FPS is about to get a full remake for the Wii.

Yet now rumours stating the contrary have surfaced on […]
Several of us here at The Gaming Vault are huge Pokémon fan, even if a few of us agree that the sheer number of catchable Pokémon in each new game is a little rediculous. But we’re still pretty psyched about Pokémon Black and White, which promises improved 3D graphics and a new dynamic battle system. In today’s Pokémon news reveals not only the release date for Black and White, but […]
Square Enix have announced that they’ll be releasing Final Fantasy: The Four Heroes of Light in the West this Fall/Autumn in Europe, with a US confirmation to follow later today. The DS spin-off has had a slight name change for the localization, as it was released in Japan as Final Fantasy Gaiden: Four Warriors of Light. The title is a back-to-basics Final Fantasy title, with a turn-based battle system, four […]
First, you saw Phoenix Wright on the Gameboy Advance (well, in Japan you did). Then you saw him on the DS. Then you saw him on the Wii. And now? The iPhone. That’s right, next week sees the first game in the series, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, on the iPhone. Not only that, the game’s only going to run you $4.99, AND it has not just four, but all five […]
