Create and Win in the Nintendo Labo Creators Contest

In addition to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe receiving Nintendo Labo support, Nintendo of Europe had one more Labo related announcement today: the Nintendo Labo Creators Contest. One of my mostly highly rated features reviewed from the Nintendo Labo Variety and Robot kits was the ToyCon Garage. The ToyCon Garage allowed you to create your very own ToyCon with some mostly simple coding.

If you have had any brilliant ideas while playing around with the ToyCon Garage, it may be worth becoming your own Edison and making that idea a reality yourself. Nintendo of Europe are holding a special contest where the best creators will win themselves a specially designed Nintendo Switch console that looks like cardboard… don’t worry though, we’ve been rest assure that the console will still not get soggy if you leave it out in the rain, though it still probably isn’t a good idea to do so anyway!

There are three different categories you can enter, which means there are three different ways to win:

  • Creations: Got an idea for your own original Toy-Con creation? Grab some cardboard sheets, dive into Toy-Con Garage and see where your creativity takes you – the sky’s the limit!
  • Customisations: Break out the pens, paints, stickers, stencils and anything you can find, and show us your one-of-a-kind customised Toy-Con designs!
  • Kids: In this category, children up to the age of 12 can submit an original Toy-Con creation or customisation. You can even get some help from a parent or guardian.

The submission period will take place between the 19th July 2018 and the 7th September 2018, but it still may be a good idea to start now so that you can submit your videos and photos ready for when submissions open next month!

You can find out more about the contest here. Happy creating and best of luck!

Tournament – Summer Splatathon Returns in 2017!

Just extended sign up deadline to Friday 1st September 2017!

Splatoon 2 just got released exclusively for the Nintendo Switch, and already it’s getting kraken reviews, especially from those awesome guys from NintyBuzz! It’s also been a whole year (and a couple days) since we started the first [the 3DS Buzz one was a pilot] ever Summer Splatathon Supreme Tournament. Wouldn’t you say now would be a good time to have another Splatathon?

Yup, that’s right! The Summer Splatathon is back for 2017, but this time we’ll be competing on Splatoon 2 for the Nintendo Switch. Registration is open now, just comment below or, preferably, reply to this thread (click here). That’s not all. You can also win £50 of eShop credit (or your country’s equivalent) if you’re the top squid, kid!

Check out the details after the break!

We got quite a few entries, and even though no-one got the correct answer, there was one user who got very close, and he/she is our winner.

Before we announce the winner, let us just find out where Link has been… after the break!

WIN – The Travelling Hylian

UPDATE – It seems I made a mistake while setting this giveaway up as no-one actually had permission to reply to the entry thread. This has now been fixed and I’ve also extended the deadline to the 24th July. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Link has been trekking the huge world of Hyrule for the past couple months, and he has ended up in some fairly interesting locations as of late.

To celebrate the recent release of The Master Trials DLC pack for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, we are giving away one lucky reader a download code for the Expansion Pass Bundle for the Nintendo Switch. This bundle includes access to both The Master Trials (Out Now) and The Champion’s Ballad (Coming Soon) DLC packs.

For you chance to win, just reply to the entry thread thread (click here) where you think Link is at the moment. If you don’t remember the name of the area, just plot a point on the map in the thread with an X (the middle of the X will be your entry), and we will pick someone from random who guessed correctly to win the code!

Please note that although the code only works for European accounts, you are still able to create your own European Switch account for free to redeem the code.

Check out where Link has been for your chance to win after the break!

TOURNEY – Summer Splat-a-thon Supreme 2016

Can you believe it, Summer is nearly over. We still can’t get over The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild from E3, but pretty soon we will have to return to normality, back to school, back to baggy trousers, that sort of thing. Luckily, we have one very last-minute organised trick up our sleeve to end Summer with a bang!

To top off the peak of Summer, we’d thought to host a new Splatoon tournament, the NintyBuzz Summer Splat-a-thon Supreme! We have actually already hosted this tournament before, back on 3DS Buzz Forums, before the big merge, last year. In the end, the member Pepe claimed victory and is chuffed with his Lucina Amiibo to top off his Fire Emblem series.

Check out all the info for this year after the break!
