Charles Martinet to return for Runner3

To have Martinet involved and not bring the game to a Nintendo platform would be a real travesty. I'm certain the Choice Provisions gang is going to take care of Nintendo fans! Thanks to ArmoredFrog for the heads up!

Yo-Kai Watch 'sales skyrocketed, doing 'really well', says Nintendo

A portion of a GameSkinny interview with Nintendo of Canada...

GS: So before we begin, could we maybe talk about Yo-Kai Watch and its popularity here in North America? I originally didn't think that it would actually be popular enough to get a sequel release here.

NoC: Right. So as you probably know, Yo-Kai Watch is already very popular in Japan right now. When we first launched the game in North America the game started off slow as not many people knew about the game. However, similar to Japan, the games and merchandise really took off after the TV show aired in North America. Almost overnight the sales skyrocketed, and the series has been doing really well ever since.

Happy 20th birthday, N64!

On this day back in 1996, the Nintendo 64 hit North America in limited release. The full launch date was Sept. 29th, but I was one of the lucky few that grabbed the system early. My God, I'll never forget how amazing that first time with Super Mario 64 was. Still stands out as one of the most insanely awesome experiences in gaming I've ever had!
