After a handful of entries, we are happy to announce our grand winner was Michael, and our runner up was Carlton. Congratulations on winning the competition.

Even though we could only have two winners, to show our appreciation to everyone who entered, we have compiled all your entries into this special ‘Readers Edition’ NintyBeats article.

Things Get Spooky in Animal Crossing: New Horizons Halloween Update

By |September 25th, 2020|Animal Crossing, Nintendo|

Autumn, the leaves begins to fall, the weather gets chilly, and the next free Animal Crossing: New Horizons update is just around the corner, this time bringing some ghoulish tricks and treats to your island paradise.

Starting from the 30th September, villagers will be able to purchase pumpkin seeds from Leif year-round (or Nook’s Cranny during October), allowing them to grow the festive squash to use in spooky DIY recipes. Throughout the month, Nook’s Cranny will also be selling candy, the Able Sisters will have Halloween costumes ready to order, and the Town Hall will even have frightening make up to exchange for Nook Miles.

When it comes to the big day on the 31st October after 5pm, your fellow residents will gather round the plaza to partake in the Halloween festivities. A rather mysterious fellow, Jack, will also be visiting to provide special in-game rewards in exchange for the cavity inducing candy… be sure to keep some aside for your neighbours though, they may have some brand new reactions to teach.

In addition to the Halloween goodies, this new update will also introduce a favourites list to the Dream Suite as well as an ability to perform reactions from the NookLink app service.

Check out the press release and gallery after the break!


NintyBeats – Super Mario 35th Anniversary Edition

By |September 19th, 2020|Features, Weekend NintyBeats|

Mario, he’s had his fair share of adventures over the past thirty-five years over hundreds of various games. Today, we will be celebrating Mario’s legacy by talking about some of my favourite pieces of music from the Mushroom Kingdom, some of which feature in the recently released Super Mario 3D All-Stars. Some of the following you could probably see coming, but there are also several tracks which may pose a bit of a curve-ball.

Once you’ve reached the end of the feature, there will also be a chance to win a physical copy of Super Mario 3D All-Stars or £25 Nintendo eShop credit, so be sure to enter that right away. Without further ado, join us in our celebration, after the break!


REVIEW – Minoria

By |September 15th, 2020|Nintendo Switch, Review|

In the Kingdom of Ramezia, heretics branded as witches by the Sacred Office have taken over the royal castle and abducted Princess Amelia. Two nuns, Sister Semilla and Anna Fran, are tasked with infiltrating the now desecrated stronghold to rescue the princess and persecute the heretics involved. This serves as the basic outline to the plot of Minoria, a game that treads on the grey moral ground between religious fanaticism and the path of following with nature, which has been deemed sacrilege by higher powers. It’s a lot to take in for such a simple premise. But along the way, you have to ask yourself if it’s enough to carry the narrative forward or if it will stumble on its own lofty ambitions.
