It's not often we hear about near-concurrent DSiWare/iPhone releases, so any such game automatically gets an element of novelty.

Yes, that means it's a really slow week, but to be fair Mutant Mudds is very worth trying. DSiWare's sole release is '90s Pool, which, as far as we can tell, is "'90s" only because the w...

Nintendo's actually doing a pretty good job with these 3DS demos! Today on the eShop, you'll be able to get a sample of the upcoming puzzle adventure Crush3D.

If we were to design a Nintendogs + Cats demo, it would go something like this: you walk into a virtual pet store to meet a new puppy, wearing an adorable bow. The proprietor lets the pup out of its cage to play with you, and the dog can't hide its excitement to run and play with all the toys in th...

3DS demos have finally arrived in North America! Or, at least, they will in a couple of hours when the eShop updates. You'll have the opportunity to check out Capcom's classic-style Resident Evil Revelations at no risk -- other than the usual risk of terror-soaked pants, we suppose. In WiiWare...

Cave Story hitting DSiWare in North America over a year ago, but Europe is still waiting for an official release.
