  • Splatoon 2 New Trailer Shows Off The Game’s Single Player Mode
    Bald Bouncer
    Nintendo held a Nintendo Direct focused mostly on ARMS earlier today, but at the end, they did drop a brand new trailer for the upcoming, highly anticipated Splatoon 2 as well. And while Splatoon 2 may be multiplayer online shooter, it will have a single player story campaign, too. This trailer showed that off.

    The gameplay of the single player mode seems to be doubling down on the 3D platforming style of the original game’s campaign, while story wise, it almost seems to be...

This is according to sources that spoke to The Wall Street Journal, which also stated that a new Pokemon game was coming from The Pokemon Company.

    Bald Bouncer
    Nintendo has kept its E3 preparations pretty low key, leaving a lot of fans intrigued about what the company may have in store, sure, but even more who are worried about there not being enough coming to the newly launched Switch.

    However, it sounds like there may be some notable announcements that we don’t know of yet en route at E3 - on its E3 site, Nintendo says, “Stay tuned after the Nintendo Spotlight, as the experts from Treehouse play through upcoming games for Nintendo...

    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.

  • 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 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.

  • 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...

    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.

    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).

    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.

  • 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...

    Of the many things we’ve wanted to know about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, a firm release date arguably tops the list. Originally stated to be launching with the Nintendo Switch in March, it’s since been speculated to arrive in Summer or at least within the second half of the year.

  • Nintendo Switch FCC Filing Reveals More Details About The Hardware

    With the Nintendo Switch just three months away from launch, and barely over two weeks from a full reveal, Nintendo have decided to file an FCC filing for the new device (via NeoGAF). This filing reveals some small, but important, details about the upcoming new system from Nintendo.

    The most important thing here is that the Switch apparently supports 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wifi- 2.4GHz is an older standard, that allows connectivity over longer distances, but is relatively slower. It...

  • Pokemon Sun and Moon’s Next Global Event Focuses on Island Scan

    A new Global Event has gone live for Pokemon Sun and Moon, involving players all across the world while guaranteeing some great rewards if successfully completed. The Global Event tasks players with catching or defeating one million Pokemon.

  • Dragon Quest 11 Officially Confirmed For Nintendo Switch

    Dragon Quest 11 was actually the very first game that was ever announced for Nintendo’s upcoming Switch, back when it was still known as the NX. However, since then, due to loads of vague and ambiguous wording in official statements and the like, the exact status of a Switch version for the game was unknown- especially since, when Square Enix showed the game off a few days ago, they focused only on the 3DS and PS4 versions, and not the Switch one.

    However, Nintendo have updated...

  • Nintendo Switch Being Less Powerful Than PS4 And Xbox One Doesn’t Matter

    At this point, we are still unclear on just how powerful the Nintendo Switch really will be – recent rumors indicate it will be less powerful than the PS4, and about as powerful as the Xbox One – but they’re just that, rumors, and rumors about this system is all over the place.

    However, even if the Switch does end up being not as powerful as the Xbox One and PS4, that won’t matter or hurt its prospects in the long run, according to Dave Mervik of Tarsier Studios, the folks...

  • Nintendo’s New Commercial For Super Mario Run Will Tug At Your Nostalgic Heartstrings

    Mario is the essence of gaming. He is the face, the flavor, the mascot of gaming as a whole. At some point or another, almost everyone who plays games has played a Mario game, and has fond memories of playing a Mario game.

    So, with the launch of Super Mario Run, which brings Nintendo’s ambassador of gaming to non Nintendo hardware for the very first time, potentially exposing him to his widest audience yet in the process, Nintendo have released an excellent new commercial for...

  • Super Mario Run Requires Constant Internet Connection

    Super Mario Run will be one of the bigger releases this month since it marks Nintendo’s first real mobile Mario title. However, it’s worth noting that for all its single-player features, you’ll need a stable internet connection play it.

    This was confirmed by Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Amie when speaking to Mashable. “We view our software as being a very important asset for us. And also for consumers who are purchasing the game, we want to make sure that we’re...
