RUMOUR – GameCube Virtual Console Coming Soon

The Virtual Console has essentially been a staple for Nintendo consoles since it launched for the Nintendo Wii. Though the launch was delayed for the 3DS and Wii U, we knew it was coming and had some information beforehand. With the Nintendo Switch however, we currently have no idea what’s happening with the Virtual Console other than subscribers of the Nintendo Switch Online service will get updated VC games for free.

Yesterday, it seems that Twitter user and Source Gaming editor NantenJex found some listings on Nintendo’s UK site for a handful of GameCube titles. True, it is highly possible that these listings are old entries, the website did exist around the GameCube era, though I find it rather interesting that the fact that none of the listings seem to have solid details. Could this possibly mean the Nintendo Switch Virtual Console will launch with GameCube titles?

Either way, don’t give your hopes up just yet, but hopefully Nintendo will reveal their Nintendo Switch Virtual Console plans very soon.

Throwback Review – Super Mario 3D Land

I’m back… again! Apologies for my absence, I was assigned to a job to do over the past week (someone’s been busy). Anywho, Our recent review of the charming Miitopia the other week marked NintyBuzz’s 50th review since we went live just over three years ago.

As a little celebration of sorts, I decided to search for my first ever game review I wrote (which was documented), and what I found was a review for Super Mario 3D Land which I wrote for a double page spread as part of my Media Studies assignment at college. I later submitted it as part of the YouView feature back in the 3DS Buzz days.

This review is completely unedited (aside from the odd typo correction and addition of screenshots) from when I was about 15 or 16. Please note that these were my views at the time (in 2012), but the game has still pretty much lived up to them up to this very day.

Check it out after the break!

REVIEW – Splatoon 2

UPDATE – This review has now been updated detailing our full opinion on the Salmon Run mode.

It’s been just over two years since Nintendo graced us with the inkredible Splatoon. The title gave a fresh new experience for the third person shooter genre. Though it was initially scampi on content, frequent updates kept the game fresh. Nintendo are now ready to release the next entry into the franchise, onto the Nintendo Switch, with Splatoon 2.

Is Splatoon 2 completely off the hook, or are you batter off skipping it entirely? Find out in our review after the break… along with even more terrible puns!

Opinion – How the Nintendo Switch Online Lounge could be improved

Nintendo recently released the Nintendo Switch Online Lounge app for iOS and Android. The app is supposed to make matchmaking with friends easier, and gives you the ability to voice chat too, as well as offering companion services to select titles.

Unfortunately, many gamers feel that it is an unnecessary method to what should generally be a feature built into the Switch itself, and I would have to agree. However, I do see some potential with the app if handled correctly. So much so, I’ve come up with five ways Nintendo could improve the service!

Check them out after the break!
