REVIEW – Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker (Nintendo Switch)

You just have to love Captain Toad. He started his own little brigade in Super Mario Galaxy to assist in the retrieval of power stars, you could get a brief glimpse of how he retrieves said stars in the bonus levels of Super Mario 3D World, and then he had his very own adventure in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker for the Wii U. Now it’s time to relive that adventure on the go for Nintendo Switch (as well as 3DS).

Is Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker for Nintendo Switch as cute as a Toad in a box, or is it a rather undelightful adventure? Found out in our review after the break!

Master Cycle Zero races onto Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Nintendo literally save me of a night of terror after staying up until 2am watching the Horror Channel. How? With a brand new update available now for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on the Nintendo Switch, bringing the software version to 1.6.0.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is seemingly trying to compete with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s three Links as this free update adds the Breath of the Wild version of Link to the roster. One more Link, and it’ll be on par with the upcoming Smash game. Note that you now choose which Link you want to play as similarly to the colouredShy Guys or the gender of the Villager. The update also adds new car parts too, they are the Master Cycle Zero, Ancient Tyres, and the Paraglider.

Check out the new trailer below!

“Let’s-a Go!” Why are Nintendo games so attractive to speed runners?

My latest Nintendo addiction, in the absence of the ability to afford a switch, has been watching speed runs of Nintendo games online. Something fascinates me about why people feel the need to time trial Paper Mario like it’s Rainbow Road over and over again. It was during my time watching that I noticed something that set Nintendo games apart from most of the other speed running staples.

Nintendo makes challenging games (insert Dark Souls meme here) that somehow consistently manage to strike a balance where good players can finish a game but great players can finish it plus all the secrets and in half the time. Of course, speed running isn’t all skill, the famous Zelda barrier skip is a prime example of the many glitches required to achieve that world record time.

However, even outside of glitch-less runs, the majority of a players time in speed runs is spent showing off their talents. And nothing feels better than blitzing through a level of SMB2 or Metroid. The release of Odyssey has only reinvigorated the passion for Nintendo speed runs.

Let’s get to the important question of ‘Why?’ though… right after the break

KidZania London ‘switches’ things up with the Nintendo Labo Workshop

Earlier this year, on the lead up to Nintendo Labo’s debut, Nintendo held Nintendo Labo Workshop events which allowed members of the public to get some hands on time with the creative construction kits. The Nintendo Labo Workshop is returning, this time on a seemingly permanent basis at Kidzania, the ‘indoor city run by kids’.

The experience starts in the MAKE station, where kids are able to make and customise their own RC Cars. This is then followed by the Discover station, where attendees can bring their RC car to life with the Nintendo Labo software. The DISCOVER station will also allow guests to try out the other Nintendo Labo ToyCons. At the end of the experience, the youngsters will be able to take home their very own personal RC car, along with a super special Nintendo Labo Workshop certificate.

Check out the full press release after the break!
