Nintendo Switch Up Close and Third Parties!

There’s a lot to get excited for today since Nintendo have revealed how they are switching up gameplay experiences once again with Nintendo Switch. I just got sent a couple images, one shows up the console and main controller up close, and the other shows just a sample of what third parties we can expect to see titles from on NX. These developers include Bethesda, Capcom, SEGA, Activision, DeNA, Ubisoft, and so much more!

Nintendo Switch Press Release

As most of you know, Nintendo just revealed Nintendo Switch (previously NX). As you can see, Nintendo are once again switching up gameplay experiences!

I already posted a little analysis article (can we really call it an analysis?), but for those wanting more juicy official details, we’ve compiled the entire press release about the reveal. Check it out after the break!

Nintendo NX is Nintendo Switch!

Today is a glorious day for Nintendo fans everywhere, as we finally received the first ever look at Nintendo NX, which has been officially titled the Nintendo Switch!

Nintendo have once again opted for a fairly bizarre name, but already they have revealed some very exciting features. It has been rumoured for a while that the console will use cartridges, and that it will be a hybrid console. Both these rumours deemed to be true. It looks like there will be many different control schemes. There is a gamepad type controller which has two controller sticks that slot to the side. You can then travel around with the gamepad to play games on the move, some will also allow multiplayer on the move with one or two screens. Dock the gamepad into the console, and then you can enjoy the games in the comfort of your own home. It definitely looks like Nintendo will switch up gameplay once again!

We also had a glimpse of a few games which will be releasing on Switch, including a new NBA game, a new Mario game, and, surprisingly enough, even a Skyrim game. It also looks like the console will either be backwards compatible, or include ports of previous Wii U games, as seen by the Splatoon footage… or perhaps we are being treated to a Splatoon sequel… Spla-Two-oon anyone?

We do not know much more at the moment, though Nintendo do promise to host a proper reveal, which shouldn’t take too much longer as it seems Nintendo are sticking to their March 2017 release.

Sonic Boom Title

REVIEW – Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice

Thanks to starting university, unlike Sonic, I’ve been fairly slow with bringing out these reviews. For that I apologise, but here I am, sitting with a Chilli Dog, ready to finish the review for Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice!

Will Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice be a burning success, or will Sonic trip on his own feet? Find out in our review, after the break!

Dragon Quest 7

REVIEW – Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past

Released 15 years ago in 2001, Dragon Quest VII was an RPG that was ahead of its time. Heck, I never played it until this review, and I can see how vast the game is! Dragon Quest VII follows the quest of Auster and co., as they explore the mysteries of the past and uncover new lands in the present.

Is Dragon Quest VII another fantastic RPG for the 3DS, or will it become a forgotten relic? Find out in our review, after the break!

Metroid Prime Federation Force

Metroid Prime: Federation Force AMAA Answers

Metroid Prime: Federation Force came out today in Europe. If you aren’t sure whether or not to purchase the title, we hosted a Ask Me Almost Anything last week on the forums. Any questions you had, we answered them, and though it was a fairly quiet, there were still some interesting questions I didn’t even think about in our review (which you can view here).

You can see all the questions asked by the community after the break!

September Direct 2016

Nintendo 3DS Direct To Start Off September 2016

While spending my 21st birthday being rather lazy (to be fair, I did go to the Crystal Maze experience this past Sunday), I was informed that Nintendo will be hosting a brand new Direct on the 1st September 2016! This Nintendo 3DS focused Direct will go live at 3pm BST. The last Direct was way back in March, so it is nice to see a new one finally airing soon!

We aren’t completely certain what this direct will pertain, though we are told that it will be Nintendo 3DS focused. We were also told that plans on the NX and mobile will not be revealed. Perhaps we could see a new game announcement or two?

There will also be a North American version airing on the same day at 7am PT.
