It would appear that the recent announcement of EarthBound for the Wii U virtual console has stirred up the imagination of one particularly skilled fan in the community. Clyde Mandelin, who goes by the name ‘Tomato’, in the community, has offered to provide his translation of EarthBound sequel Mother 3 to Nintendo for free so long as it will help secure a Western release for the game.
Nintendo have today confirmed that the Monster Games developed 3DS port of Donkey Kong Country Returns (3D), will hit 3DS handhelds everywhere on May 24th. There is a video of the game that you can catch on the Nintendo eShop, but if you don’t have access to that we have you sorted after the cut with the trailer of the game. To me, it looks like a riotous bit of platforming fun. [...]
With Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon due to hit retail at the end of the month (March 28th in the UK to be exact; US folks get the game on March 24th), Nintendo have released another trailer; this one showcasing the madness of the four-player mode that the game facilitates. It looks like it could be a pretty great time all things told. Take a peek after the break!
After originally only being slated for release in Canada last year, Nintendo have confirmed that the Wii Mini will release on March 22nd in the United Kingdom with a price yet to be determined.

Wii Street U has come to the Wii U and for a limited time it’s free. Might as well snatch it up now since I’m not sure why anyone would actually pay to have Google street view on their Wii U when they have it on their phone, computer, tablet and probably 8 other things for free. You navigate around with the game pad and it’s stylized to look kind of [...]
During their Nintendo Direct showcase, Nintendo debuted a brand new trailer for their upcoming rhythm beat fantasy title Harmo Knight.

We’ve got the new trailer for you after the jump.
Another little gem to come out of today’s Nintendo Direct broadcast was the announcement of a new entry in the Mario & Luigi group of RPG games by Nintendo. Built for Nintendo 3DS and living up to its title; the game has players rummaging around in green-slacked one’s dreams, solving puzzles and defeating enemies. The game is currently due for release sometime this summer and in the meantime, we’ve got [...]
