Yesterday we heard that Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the 10th best-selling game on Nintendo platforms in US tracked history. What makes up the rest of the list then? Fortunately, the NPD Group’s Mat Piscatella was kind enough to provide the data.

The full lineup is as follows:

The latest Nintendo leak isn’t only just about cancelled Game Boy and Game Boy Color games. Among the latest discoveries are a couple of interesting images for Wii Sports spotted by forestillusion and dconn537.

First up is a prototype image that shows Miis with ears, which is actually something we’ve never seen before. You’ve been able to customize features like the eyes, nose, hair, and even mouth shapes, but ears were never a part of the avatar’s design.

We have one more comparison video stemming from the Super Mario 3D All-Stars announcement. Below, see how Super Mario Galaxy is on Switch vs. the Wii original, courtesy of GameXplain.

In case you missed it, you can view a similar comparison for Super Mario 64 here and Super Mario Sunshine here.

Switch is the first Nintendo console that lets users play anywhere they go. With prior systems, you were limited to portable play or a television. We’ve seen past Nintendo consoles go the handheld route with fan modding, which now includes the Wii as well.

Credit goes to GingerOfMods, who has created the Wiiboy Color. It was made by 3D printing a custom Game Boy Color shell and using various components. These include joysticks from a Switch, face buttons from a DS Lite, circuitry from a GameCube controller, and a car back up camera screen. The back features two triggers, Z-buttons, and a cooling fan. Circuit boards were re-designed from an existing Wii.


Paper Mario: The Origami King released in Japan last week, and Famitsu reported that the game sold 109,000 copies in its first few days. We now have a chart comparing the debut for every Paper Mario game in Japan (including Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam since it features that character).

Here’s the full chart ranked by first week sales:

Epic Mickey has turned into a cult classic of sorts after its initial debut on Wii a decade ago. Now we have some unused material from the game, as Jim Dooley uploaded an unused music track online. You can listen to the tune below, which is titled “Outro Black Pete”.

Epic Mickey originally came to Wii in November 2010. A sequel followed two years later, which also landed on Wii U.

The NPD Group has provided new data revealing the top ten best-selling SpongeBob games of all time in the United States. Titles represented in the list were from former generations, including Wii, DS, GameCube, and GBA.

Here’s the full top ten:

Vblank Entertainment has announced a brand new update for Retro City Rampage DX, aptly titled “Retro City Rampage DX+”. The patch is live as of today on Switch, though the 3DS version will follow a bit later.

Retro City Rampage DX+ contains visual polish, more accessibility options, a smoother camera, and more. We have additional details straight from Vblank below.

Shakedown: Hawaii is currently available on Switch and 3DS. Vblank Entertainment isn’t stopping its support for Nintendo systems there, however, as the studio has revealed it’s bringing the game to Wii and Wii U as well.

Here are all of the relevant details:

Xenoblade is celebrating its 10th anniversary today. The first entry on Wii initially launched in Japan on June 10, 2010. To celebrate, some special artwork has been prepared, which we have above.

Xenoblade Chronicles wasn’t localized until the European edition in August 2011. North America had to continue waiting for the RPG, as Nintendo didn’t bring it over until April 2012.

Since the original Xenoblade Chronicles, we’ve seen Xenoblade Chronicles X on Wii U and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 on Switch. Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition, a redone version of the Wii title, came to Switch late last month.
