Nintendo's upcoming shooter, Splatoon, has a heavy focus on team-based online multiplayer, but that's not all the game's packing. Splatoon has a sizable single-player campaign, and the game's developers are excited for people to try it. The game launches tomorrow, and Nintendo continues to pump it up with new videos. Today we have a new trailer showing off the single-player mode, and you can check it out by clicking below!

Taking to Twitter, Nintendo of America's senior manager of marketing and licensing, Damon Baker, has commented on the currently available Humble Nindie Bundle—a package deal of indie eShop titles. While many fans have  been outraged that the bundle is only available in the Americas, Baker, a self-professed "indie advocate," ensures that he "tried for months to make it global." Further more, he makes a vague promise to "get there eventually." Do you think this could mean we might see more deals like this in the future, but on a global scale? Comment inside.

For years now, the gaming landscape has been ripe with titles that depict stories of war. Devil's Third, an upcoming Wii U action game from Tomonobu Itagaki's (Dead or Alive, Ninja Gaiden) Valhalla Game Studios, is set to add to that list. But according to Itagaki, it will stand apart from other war games due to an overarching theme of peace that will be present throughout its story.

There are tons of gaming enthusiast podcasts out in the wild, but almost none of the top-tier podcasts are made specifically for Nintendo fans. That's where we come in! We here at Gamnesia are bringing you a new episode of "Nintendo Week," a podcast made for Nintendo fans by Nintendo fans.

This week, Ash Paulsen of GameXplain joins Colin, Ben, and Alex to talk about Smash Bros. rumors, Splatoon's release, Fire Emblem If, Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, and, as always, plenty more. After the break, we talk about just how ripe the Mega Man series is for a revival...and why it makes perfect sense for Nintendo to lead the charge.

Yesterday we reported that development of Project CARS on Wii U is not going well. The game is struggling to run at 720p and 23 frames per second on Wii U, and developer Slightly Mad Studios believes development may have to be shifted to a future Nintendo console. Given that Nintendo has already said they don't plan to announce new hardware this year, that could be quite a long wait.

Naturally, some of the Nintendo fans who helped fund the game are not happy with this revelation. As such, Slightly Mad has released an official statement addressing the situation and asserting that Wii U was always a "maybe," rather than a confirmed launch platform, and that "the bulk" of the game's crowdfunding was acquired before Wii U was announced as a potential platform. Hit the jump to read the official statement.

UK supermarket giant Asda is going to stop selling Wii U, 3DS, Wii and DS games in eight weeks' time. The good news is you may be able to get some great games at seriously reduced prices. A post on HUKD shows Asda selling Mario Kart 8 for £20, Luigi's Mansion 2 for £10, and Animal Crossing: New Leaf for £10.

The retailer supposedly stopped selling the Wii U in July 2013, however it seems Asda is no longer going to sell any Nintendo products. There has been no official announcement explaining why they came to this decision. Nevertheless, if you're in the UK check your local Asda to see if you can grab some discounted games.

A truck carrying a shipment of Splatoon Amiibo has been stolen on its journey from Nintendo's European headquarters to GAME UK's warehouse, according to an email sent out to those who had pre-ordered the special edition package of the Splatoon game and Squid Inkling Amiibo. The retailer will be discounting the order by £10 as compensation and, while Inkling Girl/Boy Amiibo will still be available, the Squid Inkling Amiibo originally included in the special edition package will not be replaced until more can be distributed.

The weekly hardware and software sales data from Japan is in, courtesy of Media Create, and CD Projekt Red's latest game is a hit. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt opened at number one in Japan with 67,385 sales. This was essentially the only highlight of the week in the Japanese market, as no other new game was able to top 10,000 sales, and older titles like Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate cracked the top twenty in the absence of strong-selling new software. Hardware sales were underwhelming as well, with no platform breaking 20,000 sales for the week. Click below for the full breakdown.

Splatoon is a competitive third-person shooter that doesn’t focus on racking up the most number of kills against your opposing team, but rather on coloring the most surface area on the map. Rather than bullets, Splatoon players fire brightly-colored ink from their weapons, and rather than bloody kills, you defeat your opponents with gooey “splats.”

It’s a clever spin on what we’ve come to expect from the genre, but more importantly, it’s a must-buy for any Wii U owner—it’s the most fun I’ve had in years.

A few weeks ago, Nintendo’s upcoming shooter Splatoon made headlines when it was revealed that the game wouldn’t include voice chat, a decision that caused somewhat of a divide between gamers. Some felt that Nintendo was locking out a crucial part of team-based gaming, while others believed that there’s no real need for it. Two Gamnesia writers are going head-to-head tonight to tackle this issue.
