FALSE – Metroid Prime 2 for Nintendo Switch?

UPDATE – The listing has updated from Metroid Prime 2 to Metroid Prime 4 so, as expected, the listing was clearly a mistake, though why they mocked up a Prime 2 tentative box shot is beyond me. I’ve attached a screenshot of the previous listing after the break

Something very interesting has popped up while I was looking for pre-orders for Metroid: Samus Returns Special Edition. It seems like the UK retailer, ShopTo, has Metroid Prime 2 listed for preorder on the Nintendo Switch.

It is most likely some sort of error, perhaps mistaken for the reveal of Metroid Prime 4. However, considering the timing, I wouldn’t be too surprised if previous Prime games were brought over to the Switch. Not only would it serve as Metroid filler between now and the release of Prime 4, but seeing how the Trilogy compilation was released eight years ago, it would make sense to bring them to the Switch for those who never played it on the Wii, or the Wii U Virtual Console.

Most likely a mistake, though it still could be a possibility. I will update this post if any more information surfaces

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Revealed

A very unlikely crossover (unless you’ve been following certain rumours) was revealed earlier at Ubisoft’s E3 Conference, exclusively for Nintendo Switch. The new tactical adventure, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle has been officially announced, and will be releasing in the West on the 29th August 2017 (that’s a day before my 22nd birthday y’all).

The game, which has been in the works for three years, follows a new adventure where Rabbids have somehow found a way to invade a new universe, specifically the Mushroom Kingdom. Unfortunately some of the Rabbids have gone bad (or rabid), so it is up to Mario to team up with other Rabbids to put an end to this chaos.

The game is primarily a turn based tactical RPG (similar to Fire Emblem), but will also include some exploration segments too. Each characters will have their own abilities, there are support abilities too, and you also have the ability to destroy cover if you are a bit of a daredevil! Finally, it was also announced by the man himself that Grant Kirkhope was involved with creating the music for the title.

Check out the announcement videos, screenshots, and art after the break!

Skyrim for Switch gets Motion Control, Zelda Collaboration, and more!

Back in January, we learnt that Bethesda would be releasing The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim to the Nintendo Switch later this year. Though we have yet to learn when exactly the title will be released, Bethesda did reveal a new trailer in their conference earlier, which details some of the features of the Switch version.

The trailer shows how the game utilises the motion sensors of the JoyCons… test, Skyrim for the Nintendo Switch has motion controls! Tap an Amiibo from the Zelda series on a JoyCon, a special treasure chest will appear, which will contain a special Zelda themed items.

REVIEW – Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Nearly three years ago, Mario zoomed back onto the track, as well as the water, air, walls, and ceilings, in Mario Kart 8 for Nintendo Wii U. The title thrilled fans in 2014, albeit a generally poor battle mode experience, especially when 16 new tracks and a 200cc mode was added as DLC.

Come 2017, Mario is back with the same set of wheels for the Nintendo Switch, this time with some shiny new enhancements. Will Mario Kart 8 Deluxe take home the gold, or will it end up being a burnout? Find out in our review, after the break!
