Top Five Nintendo Franchises that Need to be Revived for the Switch

Nintendo has some of the most iconic and popular franchises in the world. Games like Mario, Zelda, and Pokémon have gotten so much attention in the past years that some gamers just want something new from Nintendo, or rather something old. What do I mean by this? Nintendo has a lot franchises under it’s belt but some of those IPs have either been ignored or misused in recent years.

Like many hardcore Nintendo fans, I for one would love it if Nintendo revived certain ‘lost’ game series for the Nintendo Switch,  so here’s our list of the top five Nintendo franchises that need to be revived for the Nintendo Switch… after the break.

New Arms Fighter Incoming

Last week, Nintendo of Japan’s Twitter page announced that the next ARMS update will include a brand new fighter, along with brand new ARMS. The same account just gave us a sneak peek to what we can expect.

Though the snippet of footage is blurry, we can make out that the new fighter could be likely to be female (thought we wouldn’t want to assume now, would we) and that one of their ARMS seems to twirl around in fashion. Additionally, from the rough translation, it seems their ARMS are actually distinctly part of the new fighter’s dress. This fighter will surely make the others look like they hit a fashion faux pas!

Haven’t picked up ARMS yet? Try reading our review to see what we thought!

Get Ready to Eat All The Things!

I recently discovered this charming looking game on Kickstarter where you play as a donut trying to eat all the things, while avoiding the watchers, who are also trying to eat all the things (mainly you)! It’s conveniently called ‘Eat All The Things’ and the developers plan to release it for all major platforms, including the Nintendo Switch.

The game follows the adventures of Bronut. He loves food. He loves food so much, he dresses up as a donut. He loves food so much, he’ll just gobble up any food that he can reach, whether or not it belongs to him. Your job is to direct him through bright and vibrant environments and puzzles to fill his tummy up. Be warned though, these snacks belong to the Watchers, and they surely won’t appreciate their delightful desserts being nicked. Get caught in their gaze, and they will alert the ‘evil’ host, you’d better hide if you know what’s good for ya!

Have I whetted your appetite yet? Read more about it after the break!

Mix and Match JoyCon Colours in Japan

There are already quite a few JoyCon colours on the market. If you’re more of a plain or sleek guy, you can choose receive grey JoyCons with your Switch purchase, but if you’re more the colourful type, then there is Neon Blue and Red, Neon Yellow, or Neon Pink and Green you can choose from. Up until now, in Japan, if you wanted to have a mixture of different colours then the ones above, you would have to also purchase a separate pair of JoyCons with your brand new Nintendo Switch.

It seems that Nintendo of Japan’s website has now launched a Nintendo Switch JoyCon bundle builder of sorts. This tool lets you choose which colour you want each of your included JoyCons to be in, you can even choose what coloured straps your want. There is a slight catch however. At the time of writing, you may only choose colours which have been specifically released for that specific JoyCon. That means you will be able to get your left JoyCon in Neon Green, but you cannot get the right one in that colour as Nintendo have yet to officially release the right one in Neon Green.

This is a bit of a drawback, though I could see this pave the way for more customisable colour combinations in the future. Hopefully the service may find its way overseas soon.
