Dolphin Emulator for Android to take advantage of 64-bit ARM technology

If you haven’t heard of Dolphin Emulator or are not sure of what it is really, we actually wouldn’t be surprised. Dolphin Emulator is a niche crowd type of software – originally an open-source emulator for Nintendo Gamecube and Nintendo Wii games on a Windows platform. Now they’ve been trying to bring the emulator to Android – “try” being the operative word – but the project has floundered so far because of the basic lack of computing power available on Android devices. But there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Pokemon Jukebox is a niche music app seemingly hated by all

Pokemon is a franchise that will usually guarantee success, unless you do something really stupid with it. You may have guessed where this article is going, but allow us to state the facts. The Pokemon Company – partly-owned by Nintendo – very recently launched their first ever Android app in the form of a niche music app called Pokémon Jukebox. The idea is that with this app, you can listen to hundreds of tracks from Pokémon games. But why is there so much vitriol for this app?

Alpha Squadron 2 is a Star Wars-like space shooter, free trial

If some of you have played Star Wars Rogue Squadron on a Nintendo 64 or Gamecube then you will have no trouble at all getting into Alpha Squadron 2. The games are very much alike, probably enough for the Star Wars developers to consider lawsuit options (we kid, of course). But if you’re up for some starfighter shoot-em-up time, then this game is for you.

Nintendo NX rumored to be running on Android

Ever since Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata back in March mentioned that they are working on a new gaming console, speculation has been rife about what the Nintendo NX will be all about. The latest news coming out of the grapevine is that the upcoming device will be running on Android to make it easier for third-party developers to create products for it as well. If there is any credence to this, it will join Nvidia as an OEM creating Android powered gaming systems.

Nintendo and DeNA to make Games for Mobile Platforms

Fans of Nintendo have been clamoring for a long time for Nintendo to bring its iconic game characters and properties to mobile devices. Just about every fan of Mario or Zelda would love to see those games come to smartphones and tablets to play on the go. Nintendo hasn’t developed games in the past for mobile platforms other than its own Nintendo DS and 3DS platforms.

Super Legend Flynn 64 is a Nintendo 64-inspired RPG

Game developer David Amado Fernandez is known for making tribute games – say for example, the game “Hundred Fires” which is a tribute game for Metal Gear Solid. His most recent effort is a big nostalgia trip, especially for those who remember playing Super Mario and Legend of Zelda on a Nintendo 64 console. That’s what Super Legend Flynn 64 is – a heck of a trip down gaming memory lane.

Nintendo patent reveals Game Boy emulator plans

Nintendo seems to want to enter the airline industry, as well as, the mobile industry by bringing the Game Boy to airplanes. Nothing is official yet but a patent application was recently spotted: an application to virtualize Game Boy and other consoles and placing then in different devices such as phones and airline entertainment systems. Maybe it’s time for Nintendo to finally and officially go mobile and work on bringing the games to Android or iOS.

Nintendo Mario Kart TV is company’s first mobile venture

Nintendo will be releasing a mobile app this month, but if you've been following the company's statements about mobile devices, you'll know not to expect too much. The app, Mario Kart TV, will be a companion utility for Mario Kart 8, but it will be less impressive than companion apps you see for Microsoft Xbox and Sony PlayStation consoles.
