These packages turn your mailbox into a portal to another dimension — The modern mailbox is a sad place, filled only with Amazon packages and junk mail - things we're either already expecting, or things that we never wanted in the first place. The Mysterious Package Company reclaims your mail by turning it into an unexpected journey into a dark, alternate reality.

'The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time' is now on Wii U — For some people, the sight of Link riding Epona across Hyrule Field will always trigger a little wave of nostalgia. And now Wii U owners can time travel back to 1998 and replay The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time on the Wii U.

Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime says he loves all the company's games - except one — Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America's now-iconic president and COO, has made a point of being publicly passionate about all of his company's products. He's been game to re-quote meme lines from his past ("My body is ready,") and even become a puppet in the service of his job.

Watch the creator of Mario totally geek out at the Jim Henson Studios — Who had a bigger influence on your childhood: Nintendo, or Jim Henson's puppet creations? It may warm your heart to learn that the companies are equally big fans of one another, as evidenced by a video that shows famed Nintendo game creator Shigeru Miyamoto's visit to Jim Henson Studios.

Nintendo transforms beloved franchises, despite angry fans — Nintendo was all about "transformation" at E3 this year, but the most passionate members of the gaming community might balk at their favorites jumping into new directions. If you asked Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Amie about his company, he'd say it's in the middle of a "transformative" moment.

Gotta match 'em all: 'Pokémon Shuffle' is coming to iOS and Android — It seems Nintendo properties could start appearing on mobile phones even sooner than we imagined. Pokémon Shuffle, a free-to-play foray originally released for the Nintendo 3DS handheld, is coming to iOS and Android devices, according to a trailer that appeared on YouTube Monday.

The next 'Fire Emblem Fates' will allow same-sex marriage — Fans will be able to pursue same-sex relationships in the next iteration of Nintendo's role-playing game Fire Emblem, a first for the long-running franchise and the publisher. In the upcoming Fire Emblem Fates, fans can purchase two different versions of the game - Conquest and Birthright - that will affect their created character's main romantic interest.

Arkham Knight' PC version pulled from stores — Apparently, Caped Crusader fans didn't get the PC port they deserved. Warner Bros. Interactive pulled the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight from Steam, Humble and other PC platforms last night after many fans cited performance issues that made the game unplayable.

Move over, Godzilla: Dwayne Johnson to star in 'Rampage' movie adaptation — First, they made a Mortal Kombat movie, and I said nothing. Then they turned Doom, Max Payne and Prince of Persia for movie fodder, and I watched the games I loved turned into straight-to-DVD schlock. Now, it's Rampage's turn - but it could be starring The Rock, so maybe we'll actually get a little excited.

The next 'Star Fox' is utterly dependent on the Wii U GamePad — Nintendo's next Star Fox iteration gives players two screens to view all the action in - but they'll have to learn to use the paired displays in tandem. Nintendo revealed more of Star Fox Zero, the upcoming Wii U entry to the popular franchise, to a small group of press just before E3.
