Tournament – Summer Splatathon Returns in 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!

REVIEW – ARMS

Nintendo has platforming down, they have adventure RPGs down, and they have 2D fighting down, they even have third person shooters down. In comes ARMS, Nintendo’s latest new IP to take on the 3D fighter genre. Think Tekken cross between Stretch Armstrong, with that little added extra Nintendo flair, and you get ARMS.

Set in the not-so-distant future, fighters with extendable arms compete in boxing matches with an extra twist, to claim victorious in the ARMS Grand Pix. Will ARMS stretch its way to victory, or is it just a tangled mess? Find out in our review, after the break!

The Return of Game Days!

Those of you who have been on the forums since the beginning of 3DS Buzz may remember a special event we would hold from time to time called 3DS Buzz Game Days. Well, I have some exciting news, Game Days is making a return next week!

For those not in the know, Game Days are organised days where the community plays a bunch of games online together. Anyone is able to participate at any time during the session, and it isn’t anything competitive, it’s just so that we are all able to have a bit of fun without worrying about ranks and whatnot. It’s also perfect for those who are a bit nervous about playing online, I still find it daunting with some titles, especially in games like Super Smash Bros., which I am horrible at against competent opponents.

Find out more after the break!

Weekend NintyBeats – You’re a Squid Now!

The music of Nintendo games make them truly remarkable and memorable. To show our love of the music, every Friday we share a selection of tracks from various Nintendo titles, new and old.

“YOU’RE A KID NOW! YOU’RE A SQUID NOW! You’re a kid! You’re a squid! You’re a kid! You’re a squid!” It’s been a year since Splatoon sunk the conventions of a shooter game for Wii U, and to shellebrate, we are dedicating this week’s NintyBeats to the cephalopod fuelled action with it’s freshest tunes the world has ever seen… after the break!

OPINION: What we want from Nintendo NX

As it stands, we are completely in the dark about the NX other than it comes out next Spring and it will include Zelda Wii U in the launch line-up. Seeing how the console is planned to debut in just over ten months, a lot of gamers are growing concerned with exactly what the NX is, or if Nintendo will be able to recover from the commercial failure of the Wii U (which is still a brilliant console). How powerful is it? Is it a hybrid? Will it use cartridges? We are all clueless!

Today, I’ve compiled a list of features and ‘things’ which I believe could make the NX a success, as well as some personal desires, think of it as a NX wish list. Check them out, after the break!
