My, my, my, what an unfortunate couple weeks it has been. First the Baudelaires have been chased down by an untalented fiend, a narcissistic Tango Orange addict is running the United States, and I may have quite possibly failed my Geography exam. But let us move on from the tragic, and onto the triumphant. Yes, it is finally time to announce the results of the NintyBuzz Awards 2016!
The community has voted, and the results are in. Find out which games have won NintyBuzz Awards… after the break!
As most of you know, Nintendo just revealed Nintendo Switch (previously NX). As you can see, Nintendo are once again switching up gameplay experiences!
I already posted a little analysis article (can we really call it an analysis?), but for those wanting more juicy official details, we’ve compiled the entire press release about the reveal. Check it out after the break!
Today is a glorious day for Nintendo fans everywhere, as we finally received the first ever look at Nintendo NX, which has been officially titled the Nintendo Switch!
Nintendo have once again opted for a fairly bizarre name, but already they have revealed some very exciting features. It has been rumoured for a while that the console will use cartridges, and that it will be a hybrid console. Both these rumours deemed to be true. It looks like there will be many different control schemes. There is a gamepad type controller which has two controller sticks that slot to the side. You can then travel around with the gamepad to play games on the move, some will also allow multiplayer on the move with one or two screens. Dock the gamepad into the console, and then you can enjoy the games in the comfort of your own home. It definitely looks like Nintendo will switch up gameplay once again!
We also had a glimpse of a few games which will be releasing on Switch, including a new NBA game, a new Mario game, and, surprisingly enough, even a Skyrim game. It also looks like the console will either be backwards compatible, or include ports of previous Wii U games, as seen by the Splatoon footage… or perhaps we are being treated to a Splatoon sequel… Spla-Two-oon anyone?
We do not know much more at the moment, though Nintendo do promise to host a proper reveal, which shouldn’t take too much longer as it seems Nintendo are sticking to their March 2017 release.
While spending my 21st birthday being rather lazy (to be fair, I did go to the Crystal Maze experience this past Sunday), I was informed that Nintendo will be hosting a brand new Direct on the 1st September 2016! This Nintendo 3DS focused Direct will go live at 3pm BST. The last Direct was way back in March, so it is nice to see a new one finally airing soon!
We aren’t completely certain what this direct will pertain, though we are told that it will be Nintendo 3DS focused. We were also told that plans on the NX and mobile will not be revealed. Perhaps we could see a new game announcement or two?
There will also be a North American version airing on the same day at 7am PT.
This week has been a goldmine of information for Zelda fans, as not only did we get a new trailer and subtitle for the game, but we got so much intel on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
We are trying something new for NintyBuzz by create this ongoing article, detailing all the new bits of info we will be learning about the title. So, find out everything we know about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild… after the break!
Yesterday was a long day, and after being overwhelmed by The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and making the seemingly bad choice of catching up with Wayward Pines before bed, I am fully now rested and am able to share more goodies from Nintendo at E3… from other people, who were actually at E3.
Beyond the door to the wilds (i.e. after the break), there are various videos from Nintendo’s bustling E3 day. Be prepared for gameplay, booth tours, Zelda galore, all you have to do is click read more!
