Every so often, Nintendo compiles a list of titles that have exceeded one million units, which I suppose must feel pretty nice to be able to do. The Big N has recently compiled a new one for the three-quarter period of April 2014 through December 2014, and it includes twelve (or fourteen, depending on whether or not you want to count Pokémon pairs as separate or not) games. Four are for the Wii U while the rest help show the 3DS's enormous presence. Unsurprisingly, given all the demand for them, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire stand firm at the top with an impressive 9.35 million units sold during the period, though they are beaten out by Mario Kart 7 and Pokémon X and Y's life-to-date sales.

Pokkén Tournament's official manual has been uploaded to their official website. The manual describes the controls for the upcoming arcade game, as well as two new support Pokémon. We can now confirm that Frogadier and Eevee have joined the growing list of Pokémon that will be part of Pokkén's roster.

Smash Bros. fans have been hacking into the game's files and digging up goodies left and right recently. The latest discovery is an entire set of unused custom moves for every character, implying that at some point during development there were plans to include four options for every move. While all of the moves have no effects (save for Mario's), they all appear to have had their physics tweaked, meaning it's likely that plans had already been made for the behavior of each move.

Eiji Aonuma, the lead producer of the Zelda series, had his first directorial credit on a Zelda game in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. In a recent interview with GamesMaster magazine, Aonuma reminisced about the development of the title. He commented on how the short development time for the game contributed to its uniqueness.

Are you looking forward to Code Name: S.T.E.A.M.? Or, are you still on the fence about Nintendo's latest IP? Either way, I've got good news for you!

Today, Nintendo released a demo for the Intelligent Systems title in the Nintendo 3DS eShop; the demo is limited to 30 uses and allows you to go through at least the first mission of the campaign. So, whether you are skeptical about the game like me, or you can't wait until March (or May in Europe) to try out the game, here's your chance!

It is now (technically) two years since Nintendo began claiming ownership of “Let’s Play” videos on YouTube that featured the company’s content, meaning that any ad revenue that originally went to the YouTuber was diverted into Nintendo’s wallet, something Zach Scott confirmed in May 2013. Since then, Nintendo has been zigzagging back and forth on the issue. Later that year, it was rumored that Nintendo could be backing away from “Let’s Play” money when Reggie Fils-Aime claimed that the decision was made to protect Nintendo’s intellectual property, but it wasn’t until November 2014 that Nintendo finally began to doubt their stance and made their work eligible for Nicovideo’s “Creative Endorsement Program.” It was clear that potential Nintendo Let’s Players were going to jump through a lot of hoops.

Women are just as interested in games, comics, anime, and similar pastimes as men, a fact that, at this point, shouldn't be shocking, right? Earlier in the fall of 2014, PC Gamer reported on a SuperData study that found that female PC gamers outnumber males. Also, Publisher's Weekly said that young women, aged 17–33 were the fastest growing demographic boosting the sale of comics.

Nintendo recently wrapped up its quarter three investor report, and they managed a net income of $384 million for the period of October 1 - December 31, but the numbers weren't all good. Sales were lower than expected, with the 3DS sales expectation being lowered from 12 million to 9 million, and their projected operating income for the year was cut in half. 

It looks like these are the numbers that caught the eyes of investors, as Nintendo's stock sharply declined by 8.66% in just one day, dropping Nintendo's stock value down to its lowest point since October just after reaching year-long highs during the holiday season. Nintendo will be launching New Nintendo 3DS globally next month, and they've got a steady lineup of Wii U games in store for 2015. Will it be enough to boost their value?

Nintendo has an incredibly rich and diverse arsenal of characters and worlds in their library spanning decades of memorable gaming experiences, and lately they've talked about making better use of these intellectual properties. Analyst Amir Anvarzadeh, the Director of Japan Equity Sales at BGC Securities, thinks they're long past due for an aggressive expansion beyond video games.

With so many great characters to choose from, he believes Nintendo needs to expand into animation like cartoons and movies, and suggested that a merger with Disney would be mutually beneficial. Click below to catch a video of his thoughts!
