Throughout the past year, Nintendo Inquirer has grown a lot, and we couldn’t be more grateful for the support from everyone. So before we jump into our exciting news, we’d like to take a moment to thank you – from the bottom of our hearts – for your never-ending support. You’ve helped the site move in incredible directions in just one year, and we know it will continue growing into something special because of you from here on out.

From the very beginning, our mission has been for you to receive late-breaking Nintendo news and thought provoking gaming articles in an easy, user-friendly fashion. That’s why our main focus has always been to provide Nintendo fans with high quality content, both visually and editorially.

Just last week, we completely revamped our website to make delivering news to passionate fans easier and more convenient than ever. Now that version 2.0 of the site has launched, we think it’s time to make another big change. You’ve reached out to us – and our team listened. We heard it time and time again: “‘Inquirer’ is really hard to say!” “What does ‘Inquirer’ mean?” And to be perfectly honest, we couldn’t agree more. The name’s confusing! To top it off, it kind of sounds like a tabloid, not a video game-centric media outlet.

That’s why we’re announcing that in the coming days, Nintendo Inquirer is changing its name to Nintendo Wire. For us, ‘Wire’ sounds modern and straightforward – not to mention, it’s easier to say! It feels good to shed that tabloid-esque vibe for a name that holds both simplicity and edge. This switch will carry over to all of our existing online accounts: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and every other social media network we belong to starting this next week.


Needless to say, this is an extremely exciting transition, and we’re thrilled to be able to share even more content with you on this all new site. There’s more fun news coming your way later this week – stay tuned for details!

Designer and writer by day, gamer by night, Lauren dreams big when it comes to creative endeavors. Perhaps that's why she's taken on the roles of creative director and managing editor for Nintendo Wire. If she had a video game superhero alias, it might just be The Visionary, a true keeper of imaginative order.
