Rocket League Switch Exclusives Revealed

Today Psyonix showcased three Switch exclusive vehicles through their Rocket League YouTube channel.

The video showed (rather expected) Mario and Luigi vehicles named ‘Mario NSR’ and ‘Luigi NSR’ respectively. But as you may have guessed from the featured image, the show stopper was the car based on ‘Samus’ Gunship’ which looks absolutely stunning.

These vehicles come free and will be available to unlock on launch day (though we still know no further than Holiday 2017). And despite how gorgeous the trailer is, there wasn’t any gameplay so we don’t know if sparks and movement graphics will be replaced by Stars and rainbows for the Mario cars – at least I’m hoping for this attention to detail to be realised!

Pyonix still hasn’t detailed what the ‘exclusive customization items‘ will be, or whether any more vehicles will be released on or after launch, yet with the quality of that Metroid representation, I’m sure it’ll be just as awesome.

Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle Season Pass Announced

As another day of Gamescom gets underway, Nintendo show no sign of slowing down, with demonstrations of Lola Pop from ARMS, a Mario Kart 8 Deluxe tournament and gameplay of Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle.

Now, granted that a lot of the time, the idea of DLC really causes friction in the gaming community, but this one features enough content to warrant your attention.

Check out the details 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!

Splat Brella Releasing Tomorrow for Splatoon 2

One of Splatoon’s unique new weapons is releasing tomorrow, the Splat Brella. This shotgun like weapon is perfect for close encounters, and holding fire will open up the parasol acting like a nifty shield. That’s not all, hold the brella open long enough will launch it forwards. Use this for a sneak attack… your enemy won’t know what splat them!

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!

If new apparel is your thing then look no further Nintendo has you covered. A Korok mask that shakes when you are near one of their locations will help new and old players alike find all 900 seeds. We are also graced with new armour sets based off characters from previous Zelda titles, such as Tingle and Majora’s mask. Another trial to grind through is coming. A “Trial of the Sword” Challenge will let Link take out enemies to unleash “the true power of the Master Sword” while the Hero’s Path mode will help you keep track of where you have been in the last 200 hours. Think of it like a Sheikah version of a Fitbit Activity Monitor.

Last we are awarded a Medallion, what are you ever talking about you ask? Well it is the Travel Medallion, this momentou will let you the player assign there current location as a place you can instantly travel back to.
