    Bald Bouncer
    Though Nintendo announced that the NES Classic Edition would have its last range of shipments this month, it apparently has something else coming for nostalgia fans. According to source that spoke to Eurogamer, the SNES Classic is already in development and will be out by Christmas 2017.


    As per the site, the development of the SNES Classic is the biggest reasons why the NES Classic is going out of production. Nintendo has not offered a public statement to this report.

  • Nintendo Switch System Update 2.20 is Now Available
    Bald Bouncer
    The Nintendo Switch has received a new update with update 2.2.0. What did the patch notes, crafted by informative folks at Nintendo, indicate about the update? Only that it brings “general system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience.” We’ll have to wait for player feedback to know the extent of improvements.


    The update will download automatically if your Switch goes online though it’s possible to start the update manually as well. Once it’s done, the current...

  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Receives New Update
    Bald Bouncer
    Nintendo has released a new patch for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This update, version 1.1.2, has patch notes similar to the last update, simply stating that, “Adjustments have been made to make for a more pleasant gaming experience.”


    The last update stated the same and offered improved frame rate performance in certain areas of the game. This was reported by players so it might be some time before any actual benefits from version 1.1.2 are discerned.

  • Nintendo 3DS Update 11.4.0-37 Now Out, Adds System Stability
    Bald Bouncer
    Not wanting to be outdone by Sony, Nintendo has released a brand new system update for the Nintendo 3DS today. Update 11.4.0-37, which is now out, apparently makes “further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments to enhance the user experience”. Which is another way of saying it does nothing.


    Actually, if you are a homebrew user, you’ll find that this update blocks several system exploits, including safehax. In other words, this is Nintendo blocking...

    Bald Bouncer
    Lest you think the month is bereft of Nintendo Switch releases, we have Mario Kart 8 Deluxe out later this month. As a port of the Wii U version, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe comes with several improvements especially to the Battle Mode. A new gameplay video (courtesy of GamersGlobal) has been released to showcase exactly what they are.


    What else is new with Mario Kart 8? According to Nintendo, every single piece of DLC for the original version will be include. You’ll also see Splatoon’s...

    Fast RMX Review – Gotta Go Fast!

    With the fate of Sony’s Wipeout series up in the air and Nintendo in seemingly no rush to bring Captain Falcon out of retirement, futuristic racing games are an endangered breed. Not content to leave this niche dead, Shin’en Multimedia provides their own take on the genre with Fast RMX, bringing a strong core from the Wii U and updating it for the new hardware.

    If you’ve never tried a game like this, it truly is an experience unlike any other racing game. Vehicles hover inches...

    The Legend of Zelda Breath of The Wild Boss Guide

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is now out- and it is a sumptuous game, unlike truly anything that we have ever seen before. It is also a hard game- harder than any Zelda game in recent memory, harder than most AAA games, in fact. Taking a leaf out of Dark Souls and survival games, Breath of the Wild presents you with multiple scenarios where you can die.


    One of these scenarios is in combat- when even regular enemies can take you out, bosses and the dreaded Guardians...

  • Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s Wii U, Switch Versions Compared

    Comparison videos are starting to emerge between The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on the Nintendo Wii U and Switch. IGN and Arekkz Gaming already have their videos up which you can see below.


    Though YouTube compression is responsible for hiding the differences in resolution, both versions look remarkably close to each other. There are some differences though and the Switch version does manage to come out on top visually, if only slightly.

  • Zelda: Breath of the Wild Is Currently This Gen’s Highest Rated Game

    There is little doubt that game critics have grown a bit stricter this generation. Higher scores aren’t handed out as frequently and freely as they used to- until today, the highest rated games of this generation were all tied at 93. Critics have, like critics in other media, started to use the whole 10 point scale, leading to a tendency of grade deflation.


    This is largely a great thing- it means the games that do manage to, for instance, cross the 90 barrier on Metacritic, are...

  • Ultra Street Fighter 2 Launches On Switch In May Worldwide

    Capcom has announced that its umpteenth re-release of Street Fighter 2, the classic fighting game that basically ended up spawning an entire genre in its wake, will be hitting the Nintendo Switch this May. Ultra Street Fighter 2 had been announced for Nintendo Switch beforehand, but we didn’t have a release date or price- now we have both.


    Ultra Street Fighter 2 will cost $40, and will release on May 26. Capcom promises HD and Classic Graphics Modes, Arcade, Versus and Training...

  • The Legend of Zelda Breath of The Wild Receives Second Review

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild‘s reviews will be coming in later this week, but print media has already started to go and publish its reviews for the title. We already know that EDGE has given the game a historic 10/10 score – and now, the German magazine GamePro has shared its score for the game too. And it is almost unprecedented for them as well.


    Breath of the Wild has scored a 94 from GamePro, which is the second highest score they have awarded to any game to date,...

  • Nintendo Switch Uses 4GB Of Samsung’s LPDDR4 RAM

    Nintendo Switch Uses 4GB Of Samsung’s LPDDR4 RAM

    We know at last what kind of memory the Nintendo Switch uses. Samsung went ahead and outed the information on its website (presumably prematurely, because the information has now been taken down), giving us the final piece of the puzzle as far as the Switch’s hardware specs go.


    The Switch uses 2 GB of Samsung’s LPDDR4 modules, resulting in a cumulative 4GB of RAM shared across the CPU and GPU. The speed of these modules is 1600 MHz, resulting in total effective bandwidth of...

  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s First Review is 10/10 From EDGE

    EDGE Issue #304 is finally out and NeoGAF has revealed its review scores, key among them being The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Long story short, the publication gave the game a 10 out of 10 rating, one of its rarer accolades.


    According to further details, the game is incredibly dense and it’s possible to be distracted by several things, “an absolute, and unremitting pleasure to get lost in”. There are more than 100 shrines and the world is incredibly realized....

  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s Producer Unbox The Game’s Master Edition

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is probably the most anticipated game of this year- and with less than two weeks left to launch, you can imagine that fans are probably besides themselves with excitement for the new game. And while this new video of Zelda producer unboxing the game’s limited Master Edition may not be much comfort for those of you eagerly awaiting the game to release, it is, I imagine, something- and something is always better than nothing.

  • Zelda: Breath of the Wild DLC Pass Clarified by Nintendo

    When Nintendo announced that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild would be receiving a DLC Pass for $20, fans were predictably annoyed. Nintendo’s Bill Trinen took the time to clarify why a DLC Pass is happening though.


    Speaking to IGN, Trinen noted that the decision was tough, “Because we actually had a lot of debate in terms of do we announce it, how do we announce it. I think one of the things that’s unique about the way Nintendo develops games is when we’re working...

  • Nintendo Switch Hardware Teardown Reveals Details About The Hardware

    It looks like someone has managed to get their hands on a Nintendo Switch ahead of its launch, and tear it down. As a result, we now have information on the internals of the system, revealing a modified custom Tegra X1 variant being used in the system, a gigantic battery, and the system’s entire SoC.


    It also seems like the Switch will have active cooling, and a 64-bit memory bus. The long and short of all of this is, the Switch, as a portable system, seems to be rather well endowed,...

  • Ultra Street Fighter 2 Way of the Hado Mode Showcased for Switch

    So this is a thing. If you were wondering what Capcom would do to jazz up Ultra Street Fighter 2 on the Nintendo Switch, then you’ll be happy – or horrified – to see the new Way of the Hado mode. During a Capcom Japan livestream (around here), the developer showcased the new mode which can be played with motion controls via the Joy-Cons. This mode allows you to shoot Hadoukens, hit Shoryukens and so on by doing the respective motion for each attack.


    The issue is that there appears...

  • I Am Setsuna Gets A New Trailer For Nintendo Switch Launch

    I Am Setsuna, the excellent old school JRPG that Square Enix released for PS4 and PC last year, will also be coming to the Nintendo Switch for its launch. Nintendo, who have fostered an audience for JRPGs on their systems over the last few years, thanks to collaborations with Square Enix and Atlus, as well as their own in house efforts such as Fire Emblem and Xenoblade, are definitely interested in pushing this game for all it’s worth.


    And this new trailer for the game, which...

    The first content pack is scheduled to launch this Summer and will include the addition of a Cave of Trials challenge, a new hard mode and a new feature for the in-game map. The second content pack will launch in...

  • Nintendo Switch Major Leak- Hardware Specs, OS Features, and More Leaked - Rumor

    A brand new leak for the Nintendo Switch on Reddit apparently leaks a lot of information about the upcoming Nintendo system. The leak includes some hard information on Nintendo Switch specs, as well as information about system functionality and features.


    At this point, for instance, the leak confirms that game carts start at 1GB and go as high as 32GB- or that the Switch will allow users to send friend requests or game invites directly from the system itself, rather than mandating...

  • Breath of the Wild Gets New Video Showcasing Some Dramatic New Footage

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is under a month from release (just a little over three weeks as of today, actually), and we have already received what is arguably the greatest trailer for a game ever for it already. However, if you want more footage of the game, since you can’t keep your excitement in check, Nintendo’s got you- the Japanese web page for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has just been updated with a new trailer, showing off some rather dramatic new footage from...

  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Hands On Preview

    You don’t need me to tell you that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is ridiculously hyped. Ever since its unveil at E3 last year, the game has won every major anticipatory award that there is, and is arguably the most hyped game of this year, if not of the entire generation so far. The reason for the hype is evident- Breath of the Wild looks to be the kind of modernization, and the evolution of the series’ original vision hinted at in the older games, but never quite realized, that the...

    I Am Setsuna, Square Enix’s rather charming ode to old school JRPGs that was released exclusively on PC and PS4 last year, will be coming to the Nintendo Switch, too- the game was confirmed or the Switch at Nintendo’s Switch event two weeks ago. Now we know that the game will be launching on the Switch on March 3, right alongside the system itself.


    Until now, I Am Setsuna‘s status as a launch title had been confirmed only for Japan- this confirms that the game will be available...
