We’ve gotten a very good glance at long-awaited upcoming system from Nintendo, the Nintendo Switch. During the reveal trailer, they seemingly announced (without officially announcing) multiple games, including a new Super Mario game, a new Mario Kart, Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Remastered, and either a port or sequel to Splatoon, which is great and all.
What it was a catchy line in the song? Anyways what a reveal! Our guesses that the console is indeed a portable hybrid were correct. The Nintendo NX has been renamed to the aptly branded Nintendo Switch, which is a tablet-like device that has two controllers that slide on either side while its turned horizontally. The tablet can then be snapped into the home unit to switch it to the television for...[Read More]
Minutes after the awesome reveal of the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo sent out a list of companies who are supporting the new portable/console hybrid. While from the trailer alone we already know of Skyrim and NBA 2K, plus Sonic Mania from a while back, this list hits all the right notes to make this console feel less like a gimmicky experiment and more like the entertainment platform we all wanted fr...[Read More]
THIS IS NOT A RUMOR. Nintendo themselves have just shared via Twitter and through an official press release that the Nintendo NX will be revealed tomorrow, at least in some fashion. This is the first major bit of news about Nintendo’s ever-important new console since The Pokemon Company confirmed they were going to make games for it. In fact, I was skeptical the console would even reach its ...[Read More]
Remember the days when thousands upon thousands of people would all shout out inputs on Twitch, which were then translated into control inputs for classic Pokemon Games? I was there during some of the greatest moments of the channel, from Red’s slow decent into madness at the hands of the Helix Fossil to the birth of Lazor Gator, destroyer of Suicune. It was an exciting time for Twitch, as f...[Read More]
There are two types of people in this world. The first likes their Nintendo handhelds to have a shell and 3D capabilities. The other likes their handheld to look like a toy, but be significantly cheaper. Well thanks to a certain green hatted mustachioed brother, the latter, the Nintendo 2DS, is now a little bit more colorful.
Nintendo is back this week with tons of sales as well as some new games and themes for you to pick up. Enough of our babbling and enjoy the detailed list below. Also, be on the look out for our YO-KAI WATCH 2 review that’s going live shortly.
A few months back I reported on the Mini NES, quite possibly one of the few times we’ll see Nintendo take a stab at the retro gaming crowd outside of the E-Shop. Of course, this comes after there have been many consoles capable of playing NES carts, which is strange due to the Mini NES’ lack of ability to do so. There are probably at least fifteen different clone consoles that do NES c...[Read More]
Totally saw this coming. After just under a couple weeks the valuable history on display on Archive.org of Nintendo Power has been removed. The important detail to note is that Nintendo Power was discontinued in 2012. Nintendo Power was, of course, a magazine that provided details of games coming out, accessories to look out for, and interviews with some of the dominant forces in Nintendo. To gami...[Read More]
