  • Nintendo Looking Into Selling Classic Games At Retail
    Bald Bouncer
    One of Nintendo’s key strengths over any and all other companies in the industry – after probably its first party catalog – is its legacy catalog. Nintendo has such a long and rich history of classic games, games that people have a lot of nostalgia for, games that influenced the entire industry, games that have held up amazingly well, that it is surprising the company has dropped the ball so often on leveraging it properly.

    The Virtual Console has been hit or miss (more miss...

    Bald Bouncer
    Marvelous’ Monster Hunter Stories for the Nintendo 3DS has a release date for Europe. As per Nintendo Europe, it will be out in the territory on September 8th. There’s still no release date for the United States but an announcement could be coming up soon.

    Developed by the studio behind Muramasa: Rebirth and Soul Sacrifice, Monster Hunter Stories is a lot different from typical games in the series. It combines Monster Hunter with Pokemon where you play as a Rider, stealing eggs,...

  • Super Mario Odyssey Will Have 30-50 Moons Per Level
    Bald Bouncer
    Moons in Super Mario Odyssey will be analogous to Shines or Stars from Super Mario Sunshine or Super Mario 64. But where Sunshine and 64 usually only had a handful of those per level, Mario Odyssey will apparently go decidedly far crazier with how many Moons it stuffs per level.

    Speaking to Kinda Funny Games, a Nintendo rep on the E3 showfloor confirmed that there can be as many as 30-50 moons in a single level of Super Mario Odyssey– maybe even more. This means that levels...

  • 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...

  • 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...

    Pokemon Sun/Moon Updated For Pokemon Bank Support

    Players of Pokemon Sun/Moon will at long last be able to bring over their precious Pokemon, caught in Pokemon X/Y and OmegaRuby/AlphaSapphire (or even earlier, and imported to those games), or in the Virtual Console re-releases of Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow, to the newest games- Pokemon Bank has finally been updated to allow players to transfer their Pokemon over into the new games.

    Pokemon Bank is a paid cloud storage app that lets players store their Pokemon in the cloud. It is...

    I Am Setsuna Confirmed For Nintendo Switch Launch

    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...

  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild’s Map Over 9 Times Larger Than Skyrim’s Map

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will present players with a full fledged kingdom of Hyrule to explore in a seamless open world, for the very first time- as opposed to the hub based pseudo open design that previous Zelda games have had. Nintendo have made it a point to point out that Breath of the Wild‘s Hyrule will be massive- but just how massive will that be?

    Well, Crave Online decided to collate and analyze research into this question done by various outlets, and social...

  • Rayman Legends On Nintendo Switch Will Have Touch Screen Controls In Portable Mode

    Rayman Legends will be supporting touch screen controls in portable mode, Ubisoft revealed on the game’s official website [via Nintendo Life], laying to rest the speculation that many believed (including yours truly) that the touch screen on the Switch would be used more for UI and navigation than for games.

    According to the website, players can expect to use the touch screen to take out enemies, manipulate platforms, cut ropes to clear a path and much more.” The touch screen...

    Nintendo’s Reggie Fils-Aime confirmed something that the rest of us all already basically knew- that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be the last game Nintendo releases for the Wii U. After this, no more Nintendo games will be launching on the platform.

    “From a first-party standpoint, there’s no new development coming after the launch of the legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” Fils-Aime said to Polygon in an interview. “We really are at the end of life for...

  • Splatoon 2 Release Date Listed by UK Retailer GAME

    Splatoon 2 Release Date Listed by UK Retailer GAME

    UK retailer GAME has been on somewhat of a streak when it comes to leaks. Prior to Nintendo’s Switch presentation on January 13th, it noted that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild would be releasing in March. Granted, that’s based off of every report under the sun confirming the same but its latest release date leak for Splatoon 2 could still be legitimate.

    According to GAME, Splatoon 2 will be out on August 18th for the Switch. The listing hasn’t been changed yet which...

    Digital Foundry’s analysis of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on Nintendo’s Switch is available thanks to a recent showing at London and it offers some new information on the open world title’s performance.

    Along with improvements from the 2016 build running on Wii U, Breath of the Wild apparently runs at 900p when the console is docked and playing on your TV. Undocked and running on portable mode, the game runs at 720p resolution. Thankfully, the game maintains a solid...

  • Nintendo of America President Discusses Metroid, Mother 3 on Switch

    A new Metroid? The long-awaited sequel to Mother aka Earthbound finally releasing in the West? There’s nothing to announce currently but Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime is more than aware about “key IP” that fans want to see.

    Speaking to GameSpot, Fils-Aime said, “Oh, so earlier today I got asked about Mother 3; maybe you can ask me about Metroid. Look, again, I am proud as an executive with Nintendo to say that we look at all of the boards and all of the comments...

    Nintendo Switch’s Snazzy Minimalistic UI Revealed

    You might have missed it during the official presentation for Nintendo Switch but the user interface is quite something. Thanks to the most recent Treehouse Live stream though, some more glimpses of the Switch’s UI were seen. You can see it above (image courtesy of PowerUpGaming).

    From the outset, the Switch seems like a decent leap forward from previous systems, presenting a more minimalist presentation that’s sleeker but easier to understand. Icons for the Nintendo Store,...

  • The Legend of Zelda Breath of The Wild Not Running at 1080p on Nintendo Switch

    A report by IGN earlier this weekend indicated that Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild would be running at 1080p resolution on the Nintendo Switch and 720p resolution on the Wii U. The news was apparently confirmed by producer Eiji Aonuma who also apparently noted faster loading times would be a thing.

    However, IGN has since published an update which stated that Breath of the Wild was not confirmed at 1080p resolution on Switch.

  • Shin Megami Tensei Announced For Nintendo Switch, Powered By Unreal Engine 4

    Atlus are one of the companies partnering with Nintendo on the Nintendo Switch. Today at the Switch conference, in one of the most exciting announcements at the event, they announced a bombshell- a brand new Shin Megami Tensei game, coming to the Switch, developed in Unreal Engine 4.

    The game has only just started development- Nintendo were pretty clear on that. The trailer we saw was just a concept trailer for the game. But what we saw looked gorgeous, and the chance to play...

  • ARMS Brings Wacky Boxing to Nintendo Switch

    ARMS Brings Wacky Boxing to Nintendo Switch

    The rumoured ARMS, apparently in development by Platinum Games, turned out to be real. It’s another party game for the Nintendo Switch, making use of the Joy-Con controllers to simulate boxing. Except this boxing makes for extendable gloves that can be twisted, used for blocking and much more.

    Check out the trailer below to see exactly what we mean. ARMS essentially uses the Joy-Con’s motion controller functionality to simulate the boxing and offers both local and online multiplayer....

  • Nintendo Switch New Video Shows Off How The Console ‘Switches’

    The most appealing part of the Nintendo Switch from a hardware perspective is its switching capability- the way it can seamlessly turn from being a home console to a portable to a standalone gaming unit, without having to fiddle with wires or connectors.

    We’ve seen the Switching in motion a lot- but we’ve never actually seen it in real time so far. And there’s always some skepticism about whether or not something will actually work in real life as it has been advertised,...

  • Pokemon For Nintendo Switch Mentioned On Retailer Website

    Pokemon for Nintendo Switch is a widely held expectation at this point- when Pokemon Sun/Moon had only just launched for the 3DS, reports of an enhanced version for the Nintendo Switch, Pokemon Stars, broke out. Since then, more and more evidence has pointed to Pokemon Stars for Nintendo Switch existing.

    Now, there’s more fuel to add to the fire. Leading retailer of video games GameStop has added a product page for the Nintendo Switch, specifically referencing that Pokemon...

    We have long known, thanks to a spate of rumors, that Ubisoft’s Beyond Good and Evil 2 will have some manner of Nintendo exclusivity. Now, the exact nature of that exclusivity has been revealed. According to well known Nintendo insider Laura Kate Dale, who simply won’t stop leaking stuff before the Switch event later this month, Beyond Good and Evil 2 will indeed be a Switch exclusive- for a year.
