REVIEW – Pokkén Tournament DX

Back when the Wii U was a thing, a pretty good but poorly marketed thing that, Pokémon fans see what it would be like if Pokémon fought under a more action based situation in Pokkén Tournament. The promise of a brand new main series Pokémon game is coming to the Switch has very likely gotten Pokémon fans excited, and what’s better to fuel the excitement than a remake of the pretty decent spinoff.

Pokkén Tournament DX, will the included improvements make the release super effective, or is it more useless than an underdeveloped Magikarp flopping about? Find out in our late review (oh so late), after the break!

REVIEW – Super Mario Odyssey

Here we go, off the rails
Don’t you know it’s time to raise our sails?
It’s freedom like you never knew

Pauline’s right, you know. Super Mario Odyssey really is freedom like you never knew… at least when it comes down to Mario games. Super Mario Odyssey is nearly here, Mario’s very first full blown adventure for the Nintendo Switch.

Soar from kingdom to kingdom in the Odyssey, collect hidden Power Moons, and stop Bowser’s maleficent weeding all while enjoying some rather snazzy and jazzy holiday destinations. I mean, who wouldn’t want to lay on the carbonated shore of Bubblaine?

Will Super Mario Odyssey be your 1-Up girl (or guy), or do Power Moons just not top Shine Sprites? Jump up in the air and find out in our review after the break! (I do wonder how many of you did actually jump up in the air)

Postcards from Bubblaine – Super Mario Odyssey

Mario has been working his cap off in preparation for his newest adventure on the Nintendo Switch in Super Mario Odyssey, but even heroes deserve a break from time to time. Mario decided to go on a little holiday to celebrate his work so far, and what’s a better holiday destination than Bubblaine Beach of the Seaside Kingdom.

Feeling a bit envious? Love a good holiday pic? Then you’re in luck, Mario was kind enough to send NintyBuzz some postcards on his little holiday at the Seaside Kingdom. Check them out after the break!

Octopath Traveler in the Spotlight

Square Enix’s Project Octopath Traveler took the third Spotlight in the Direct just gone. After having only a brief reveal amongst the crazy amount of hype back in January’s Switch Presentation, this title has been overlooked for a while… until now.

The stunning ‘HD-2D’ style sets it apart from many games, and despite the simplicity in its roots, the game is a graphical masterpiece (at least in this writer’s opinion) with the level of quality come to be expect of the company, and gorgeous CG effects through Unreal Engine 4.

Xenoblade 2 Direct info and releases!

Fittingly, the lengthiest section of the recent Direct was given to Xenoblade Chronicles 2, which is set to be one of the larger and more complex games coming to Switch. This Spotlight explained a bit of context for the game’s story and how the combat works, which has been extracted into its own video you can see here.

The entire thing is voiced over by Azurda the Titan, who is friend and landlord of the protagonist Rex; though Koizumi chips in at the end to announce the beautiful Xenoblade 2 themed Pro Controller and Collector’s Edition including a soundtrack CD, 220 page hardbound art book at metal case.

Nintendo Direct Summary: September 2017

Nintendo crammed new reveals and information for over 40 titles in last night’s Nintendo Direct. Taking the Spotlight segments were Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Project Octopath Traveler and of course, Super Mario Odyssey.

Some of the most notable reveals were from Bethesda as they are bringing DOOM and Wolfenstein II to the Switch with the former in Winter this year and the latter in 2018. On a more peculiar note, Minecraft is coming to the New Nintendo 3DS ‘soon’ but with no word on compatibility with other versions. (more…)
