Any time Koei Tecmo makes one of their Warriors games based off another franchise, one of the key questions fans have is which characters will make the cut. That's definitely the case with their next title, Fire Emblem Warriors, whose roster has seen multiple reveals in the past few weeks as we approach its Japanese launch on September 28th. A new image from a Spanish retailer's website, however, may have just leaked the rest of the roster ahead of schedule.

We don't know if it's accurate, as its contents are somewhat questionable, hence why we're marking this one a rumor. That said, make the jump if you want to see five more Fire Emblem characters that may be joining the fight!

Not since Metroid: Zero Mission on the Game Boy Advance have fans of the series gotten a new 2D Metroid adventure. That game was an extended remake of the original Metroid, so it really is quite fitting that, more than a decade later, the next 2D series installment is a remake of Metroid II: Return of Samus from the original Game Boy. Metroid: Samus Returns has a lot of pressure to live up to the series standards, especially since we have not seen Samus Aran in action at all since 2010's controversial Metroid: Other M.

Thankfully, Samus Returns seems to be living up to the hype and fans' expectations. Screw attack into the full article to learn more about what reviewers are clamoring about!

Memelords and legitimately interested Nintendo fans everywhere were likely a tad disappointed when Nintendo announced that the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS social media platform Miiverse would be closing down on November 8th. As such, most people assumed that—unless they backed up their own posts—lots of the Miiverse content would be lost to the ether a couple months from now.

Just don't tell that to the engineer behind Drastic Actions, a site recently dedicated to preserving the entirety of Miiverse. Make the jump to learn more.

Nintendo has announced the next of their Nintendo Directs, and it's a long one this time around! Airing this Wednesday, September 13th, the Direct is planned to last for almost 45 minutes and will be covering upcoming titles for both the Switch and 3DS, with the announcement specifically noting that Super Mario Odyssey will be getting new reveals. There's no knowing what else will be present, but with the holiday season fast approaching, it seems likely we'll get details on many of the titles that are yet to be released this year.

In the final expansion to Yacht Club Games' critically acclaimed Shovel Knight, players will finally step into the shoes of King Knight as he embarks on a quest to be a mighty king (so enemies beware!) in King of Cards.

Pridemoor has yet to see a king with quite the knack for flair, but the Gilded Goon aspires to be the main event like no king was before (brushing up on looking down while building up his score) in this new prequel story—and this is a facet of King Knight's character that is reflected quite clearly and charmingly in his gameplay.

Metroid: Samus Returns is only a couple weeks away from release, and as such, reviewers and journalists already have the Special Edition of the game in their hands. We already knew this version of the game would come packed with a CD celebrating the music of the series, but we've now learned that the box art for the Nintendo 3DS title is reversible in this package; on the other side of the box art for Samus Returns is the original art for Metroid II: Return of Samus from the Game Boy.

In a recent update of the Wii U's firmware, dataminers discovered some code that signaled the end of the Miiverse online community. There was previously no official word from Nintendo that we'd see the service shutter, so it was still considered just speculation. As of today, however, we have gotten that confirmation, as Nintendo has announced that Miiverse will officially shut down on November 8th for both the Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS.

Really powerful Salazzles can be hard to come by in Pokémon Sun and Moon, especially since only the rare female Salandits can evolve into the coveted poison/fire-type Pokémon.
