With Nintendo struggling to craft their wares in HD and the Wii U being all but abandoned by the big publishers, the Japanese power-house has been forced to reach out to developers and hand them the reins to their biggest IPs in order to secure the support the console badly needs. Iwata-san hinted at this new strategy in a Nintendo Direct in 2013, and Hyrule Warriors is the first game to emerge from one of these new partnerships.

I make a point of abstaining from reviewing a game until I’ve finished it, or at least got to a point where I’ve seen all it has to offer. I wasn’t expecting this to take so long with Ni No Kuni, but here we are, a good 18 months after it was released in the UK, and I’ve finally finished this wonderful game.

There are many events I never thought I would ever witness in a video game. Mr T skateboarding in the park wearing a pirate outfit. Conchita Wurst and Spongebob Squarepants engaging in a rap battle dressed as chickens. Will Smith dreaming of being Miss Piggy’s key ring. All of these, and many more, happened within my first few days playing through Tomodachi Life. To label Nintendo’s new life-sim as weird doesn’t quite do its zany gameplay and scenarios justice. It’s simply the most bonkers game I’ve ever played.

So here we are. In our hands lies Nintendo’s latest instalment in the insanely awesome karting series that has defined the whole genre, and lead the pack since its inception on the SNES in 1992. Each game has been a massive system seller, and never have Nintendo needed that to be more true than with the Wii U version, cunningly titled Mario Kart 8. The jump to HD may have taken longer than anyone, Nintendo included, had expected or hoped, but the result is one of the best games in the entire series.

Capcom have released a remastered version of the NES classic, complete with that awesome theme tune. Sing along now: Life is like a hurricane, here in Duckberg. Race cars, lasers, aeroplanes, it’s a duck blur. Might solve a mystery, or re-write history. Duck Tales woo-hoo!

Announced alongside the Wii U, Traveller’s Tales first open-world LEGO game provided an early glimpse of what the new console was capable of and showed Nintendo was willing to court third-party support. It may have slipped from bolstering the Wii U’s launch line-up but has the extra development time helped its cause? Check out our review to find out.

Mario Tennis on the N64 was one of my favourite sports titles back in the day. Have Camelot conjured up another ace here, or is it a double-fault?

Being an animation buff I was incredibly excited about Disney’s Epic Mickey.  While it hasn’t ended up being everything I’d hoped for I still found it to be a highly enjoyable adventure.
