  1. Joggernauts combines the endless runner mechanics of Bit.Trip Runner with the color switching of Runbow for a co-operative platformer challenge. This looks like a lot of fun, and they've just announced that the game will also include a single-player mode so it's not multiplayer-only anymore. Press release:
  2. Individual trailers/game descriptions: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! & Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! Fortnite Super Mario Party Mario Tennis Aces Fire Emblem Three Houses Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion (Available June 13th) Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna - The Golden Country DAEMON X MACHINA Starlink: Battle for Atlas Overcooked 2 Killer Queen Black Octopath Traveler DRAGON BALL FighterZ Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate Paladins Mario+Rabbids Kingdom Battle Donkey Kong Adventure DLC Hollow Knight Captain Toad Treasure Tracker FIFA 19 SNK HEROINES Tag Team Frenzy Other game announcements: Grim Fandango Remastered Broken Age
  3. Two of my favorite indie developers joining forces! I'm really curious to see what they come up with while working together.
  4. I'm not going to be anywhere near these locations but a trailer with a giant inflatable Cappy would certainly be something to see.
  5. Tumblestone was one of my favorite Wii U eShop games last year so I'm glad to see it getting a re-release on the Switch. If you like match-3 puzzle games Tumblestone should be right up your alley. Here's the review I wrote for it last year:
  6. Anyone else going to PAX West this year? I'll be in Seattle on Thursday so I might go to the Nindies@Night, though I'll be there with a few people so I don't know if anyone else would want to go. I've got a three day pass for PAX though so I should get a chance to see just about everything this year.
  7. Not a bad bundle if you haven't gotten a Switch/Splatoon 2 yet, but more importantly for those of us that have there'll be another Splatfest in two weeks. Unfortunately I'm going to be out of town that weekend (it's PAX West weekend!) but I think I'll be rooting for team flight. Kinda seems like they should've released the bundle before the Splatfest though to get new players in on the action.
  8. At a glance I thought that price was for a New Nintendo 2DS. I wonder if there's still enough market interest in the 2DS to warrant a sale like this, especially bundled with a game that's five years old now. More than anything else in this announcement I'm glad Monster Hunter Stories is getting a demo in a couple weeks. I'd like to see more of how exactly this spin-off is supposed to work.
  9. Nintendo reminds us again that they're not done with the 3DS yet. I had kind of forgotten about some of these though, and between these and the Switch's games my wallet isn't going to be too happy for the rest of this year.
  10. Below are individual trailers plus a link to Nintendo's E3 site for more details on each game. Super Mario Odyssey The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Expansion Pass Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Fire Emblem Warriors Metroid Prime 4 Yoshi for Nintendo Switch Kirby for Nintendo Switch Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Rocket League Sonic Forces Metroid: Samus Returns Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido
  11. I admit I don't follow competitive gaming well enough to recognize any of the names here, either players or announcers, but these tournaments should be fun to watch!
  12. Anyone interested in going? You might get a free gift with your My Nintendo account.
  13. Pretty impressive for an enhanced port. If every major release for the Switch this year has the same momentum Nintendo might actually hit their Switch sales goals for this year.
  14. Layton's latest adventure has a new subtitle and a release date: July 20th for iOS and Android devices, and sometime in Fall for the 3DS. Not only that, but the game is launching worldwide simultaneously, so North American fans won't be left waiting years for a translation. Of course, calling it Layton's latest adventure is a bit misleading, as this game has a new protagonist: Katrielle Layton, who is searching for her missing father Professor Hershel Layton. The game looks like a slightly new direction for the Layton series but more mysteries to solve sounds good to me! Press release:
  15. The Switch may be out now but it's nice to see Nintendo is still giving the Wii U some attention (though I'm sure part of it is that this indirectly advertises Splatoon 2 as well). And that's some grand prize!
  16. Not what I was expecting when I saw the headline with a new Zelda subtitle. It's pretty interesting how much Nintendo is embracing other forms of advertising and merchandising though, and this sounds like it could be a lot of fun. Has anyone here played an escape room scenario before?
  17. I haven't even heard of GameTruck before, but it's good to see Nintendo is keeping active with putting the Switch into people's hands since that's usually a big factor when it comes to deciding whether or not to purchase something like this (I convinced my brother to get one after I showed him Breath of the Wild last week). And this says the trucks will be in 30 states so it can reach far more people than the Switch previews these past couple of months, though at the same time since it's a paid service that might end up being a moot point anyway.
  18. Pretty weird, but I guess it does speak to Switch's "play anywhere" theme. It's a shame that there are only three locations though, and one is invite-only.
  19. I think Nintendo has done a few events like this in the past year with Super Mario Maker, but still it's cool to see them keep up with it and give kids a chance to play and maybe learn something.
  20. This was actually announced a while ago but now we know what games will be available to demo. Plus you can demo the Switch in a fake airplane so that's...something. Anyone here going to PAX South this year?

  22. TOKYO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Nintendo announced today that the new Nintendo Switch system will launch worldwide on March 3, 2017 at a suggested retail price of $299.99 in the United States. Nintendo announced today that the new Nintendo Switch system will launch worldwide on March 3, 2017 at a suggested retail price of $299.99 in the United States. (Photo: Business Wire) The system will include the main console, Joy-Con (L) and Joy-Con (R) controllers, a Joy-Con grip (to which two Joy-Con are attached and used as one controller), a set of Joy-Con wrist straps, a Nintendo Switch dock (which holds the main console and connects it to a TV), an HDMI cable and an AC adapter. Two stylish versions of the system will be released: a version with a set of gray Joy-Con, and a version with one neon blue and one neon red Joy-Con. Both versions will be the same price. “Nintendo Switch is a brand-new kind of home gaming system that offers a wide variety of play modes,” said Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima. “We will introduce the world to new experiences made possible by the unique characteristics of the Nintendo Switch hardware and the Joy-Con.” Nintendo Switch is a breakthrough home video game system. It not only connects to a TV at home, but it also instantly transforms into an on-the-go handheld using its 6.2-inch screen. For the first time, players can enjoy a full home-console experience anytime, anywhere. The screen includes capacitive multi-touch capabilities for compatible games. Battery life can last for more than six hours, but will vary depending on the software and usage conditions. For example, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild can be played for roughly three hours on a single charge. While away from home, Nintendo Switch can be charged by plugging the AC adapter into the console’s USB Type-C connector. The versatile Joy-Con offer multiple surprising new ways for players to have fun. Two Joy-Con can be used independently in each hand, or together as one game controller when attached to the Joy-Con grip. They can also attach to the main console for use in handheld mode, or be shared with friends to enjoy two-player action in supported games. Each Joy-Con has a full set of buttons and can act as a standalone controller, and each includes an accelerometer and gyro-sensor, making independent left and right motion control possible. Nintendo Switch also contains a number of built-in features that make it more interactive. The left Joy-Con has a Capture Button that players can press to take instant screenshots of gameplay to share with friends on social media. The right Joy-Con includes an NFC touchpoint for interaction with amiibo figures, as well as an IR Motion Camera that can detect the distance, shape and motion of nearby objects in specially designed games. For example, it can tell how far away a player’s hand is, and even if the hand is forming a rock, paper or scissors shape. Both Joy-Con include advanced HD Rumble, which can provide compatible games with subtle vibrations that are much more realistic than before. The effect is so detailed that a player could, for example, feel the sensation of individual ice cubes colliding inside a glass when shaking a Joy-Con. With HD Rumble players can experience a level of realism not possible through sights and sounds alone. Nintendo Switch makes it easy for players to stay connected. Up to eight systems can be connected for local wireless play. The player can place the system upright anywhere by using the built-in stand, then easily share Joy-Con for multiplayer fun away from the TV. The system will support online Wi-Fi multiplayer gaming. Nintendo also unveiled a new online subscription service that will begin with a free trial at launch. The service includes a smart-device application available in Summer 2017 that will let users invite friends to play online, set play appointments and chat with one another as they play compatible games. The fully featured paid service will be available in the fall. Nintendo Switch will be supported by world-class third-party publishers including Activision Publishing Inc., Electronic Arts, Take-Two Interactive, Ubisoft, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and major Japanese publishers. Some publishers, such as Bethesda Softworks, are joining Nintendo for the first time. Players can look forward to major franchises on Nintendo Switch such as EA SPORTS FIFA, The Elder Scrolls, NBA 2K, Minecraft and more. Nintendo Switch software will not be region locked. The unique capabilities of the console and Joy-Con have combined with innovations from past systems to create Nintendo’s most flexible, feature-packed video game system ever. This is demonstrated by the wide variety of unique games that were announced for launch day, this summer and into the 2017 holiday season, from both Nintendo and its third-party partners. From the engrossing open-air experience of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to the party fun of 1-2-Switch, Nintendo Switch offers something for everyone. Select First-Party Games The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild: Prepare for the biggest Legend of Zelda adventure yet, with an open-air style that breaks new boundaries while honoring the origins of the acclaimed series. Explore a world of unprecedented size and discover more than 100 puzzle-filled Shrines of Trials, plus a wide variety of weapons, outfits and gear. Players won’t want to stop playing, and they won’t have to since Nintendo Switch allows them to continue the adventure anywhere, anytime. The game is compatible with Zelda 30th Anniversary series amiibo, the Wolf Link amiibo (which will be re-issued as a standalone amiibo on Feb. 3) and the new Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild series amiibo. In addition to the previously announced Link (Rider), Link (Archer) and Guardian amiibo, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild series amiibo will also include new Zelda and Bokoblin amiibo. The amiibo in this series carry a suggested retail price of $15.99, except for the massive Guardian amiibo, which has a suggested retail price of $19.99. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will provide players with a landmark Nintendo Switch experience on the system’s launch day in March, and will be available as a standard edition, Special Edition and Master Edition. The Special Edition includes the game, a Nintendo Switch Sheikah Slate Carrying Case, Sheikah Eye Collectible Coin, Relic of Hyrule: Calamity Ganon Tapestry and Weather-Worn Map, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Sound Selection CD for a suggested retail price of $99.99. The Master Edition includes all of those items plus a Master Sword of Resurrection figure, and has a suggested retail price of $129.99. 1-2-Switch: This is the first Nintendo video game in which players compete in fun activities while staring into each other’s eyes instead of at the TV screen. From Wild West gunslinging to copying each other’s dance moves, the games in 1-2-Switch make creative use of a broad variety of Nintendo Switch features to liven up parties with anyone, anywhere, at any time. 1-2-Switch will be available alongside the Nintendo Switch system on its launch day in March. ARMS: Featuring a unique multiplayer fighting sport that lets players trade blows using extendable arms, this game includes elements of both boxing and shooting games, plus a new cast of characters. After customizing a character with a variety of arms, the player holds one Joy-Con in each hand and throws left and right punches at the opponent. Characters can jump and dash, and players can bend their punches by twisting their hands as they swing. As players learn the game and improve their skills, they will discover a deeper level of advanced tactics. Players can compete against the computer, against a friend on a split screen using a second set of Joy-Con (sold separately), against worldwide rivals online, or with two Nintendo Switch systems over a local wireless connection. ARMS will be available this Spring. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe: With Nintendo Switch, fans can enjoy the definitive version of Mario Kart 8 anywhere, anytime, even with up to eight friends in local wireless multiplayer.

Plus, Battle mode has been revamped and includes Balloon Battle and Bob-omb Blast, with new courses such as Urchin Underpass and Battle Stadium, and returning ones like GCN Luigi’s Mansion and SNES Battle Course 1. Players can now carry two items at a time, including new items returning from previous Mario Kart games such as Boo (the item-stealing ghost) and the Feather, which gives players a high jump in Battle mode. Players can even choose to use a new Smart Steering feature, which makes driving and staying on the track easy for novice players and kids, even at 200cc. Play in TV mode in up to 1080p. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe launches in April.

Splatoon 2 supports both local and online multiplayer matches. The game will also support voice chat using the new Nintendo Switch smart device app (a free, limited version of the app will be available this summer), and will add new stages, fashions and weapons after launch, as the original game did. Splatoon 2 is scheduled to launch this summer. Super Mario Odyssey: This is the first sandbox game that allows Mario to fully explore his world since Super Mario 64 on Nintendo 64 and Super Mario Sunshine on Nintendo GameCube. Mario jumps out of the Mushroom Kingdom and embarks on a journey through mysterious new places and new experiences, such as sailing between worlds aboard an airship and the ability to throw Mario’s cap. Super Mario Odyssey is scheduled to launch during the 2017 holiday season.

  23. REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Due to an unforeseen “incident” at the Nintendo 2DS factory, Nintendo announces that the hardware’s current color scheme will be changed. (Footage of said “incident” can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/V4JyT_fu0Bs.) Old Look: Black front with red or blue on the sides. New Look (Not At All Caused By Luigi Accidentally Entering the Wrong Manufacturing Code): Red or blue on the front, black on the sides. This new color swap will be remembered alongside other such innovations as jelly and peanut butter, or roll and rock. Even Mario approved and decided that the new look will start replacing the old one, so everyone should see the color-swapped Nintendo 2DS systems appear in stores this November. Despite all these changes, the price stays the same! You can still pick up the Nintendo 2DS system at a suggested retail price of only $79.99, with the Mario Kart 7 game pre-installed in specially marked packages. At a price like that, you could even pick up one for every young gamer in the family! About Nintendo 2DS: Nintendo 2DS comes with fun built-in entertainment options and applications to take photos and videos, plus wireless access to Nintendo eShop. The design makes it easy for smaller hands to hold. The system includes two screens (including a touch screen) and plays Nintendo 3DS games, plus nearly all Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi games, in 2D. For more information about Nintendo 2DS, visit http://www.nintendo.com/2ds. Many of Nintendo’s most popular and well-received Nintendo 3DS games starring characters like Mario, Zelda, Yoshi and our very own accidental color designer Luigi are part of the Nintendo Selects collection and now available at a suggested retail price of only $19.99 each.
