About Leon Fletcher

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!

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.

E3 2018 – A Reflection

It’s now been just over a month since E3 2018 came to a close. Now that I have fully rested from late nights (among other activities outside of E3) I believe it would be a good time to reflect on this year Electronic Entertainment Expo.

From EA’s unenthusiastic kickoff, to Nintendo’s extensive Smash Bros. reveal, you can find out what I thought of E3 2018, after the break. Be warned, the following will be in depth

REVIEW – Runbow (Nintendo Switch)

‘If you can’t see it, it doesn’t exist’, in real life that message holds no value, in Runbow, it means everything. The frantic, multi-coloured multiplayer game that debuted on Nintendo Wii U is back once again, this time on Nintendo Switch. Get ready to run, jump, and punch in this multi-coloured package of fun anytime, anywhere, with anyone!

Is Runbow a rainbow dash of fun, or is it more dull than being stuck in the Dulux store? Find out in our review, after the break!

REVIEW: Mario Tennis Aces

Just in time for the Wimbledon season, Mario and friends hit the courts on Nintendo Switch in Mario Tennis Aces. This refined tennis experience comes packed with the usual tennis gameplay, plus a brand new adventure mode, which tells the tragic story of how Luigi became possessed by a most evil tennis racquet. True tennis meets the zany quirks from Mushroom Kingdom once again!

Does Mario Tennis Aces serve a Mario tennis experience without a fault, or is it just a backhanded bore? Find out in our review after the break!

Create and Win in the Nintendo Labo Creators Contest

In addition to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe receiving Nintendo Labo support, Nintendo of Europe had one more Labo related announcement today: the Nintendo Labo Creators Contest. One of my mostly highly rated features reviewed from the Nintendo Labo Variety and Robot kits was the ToyCon Garage. The ToyCon Garage allowed you to create your very own ToyCon with some mostly simple coding.

If you have had any brilliant ideas while playing around with the ToyCon Garage, it may be worth becoming your own Edison and making that idea a reality yourself. Nintendo of Europe are holding a special contest where the best creators will win themselves a specially designed Nintendo Switch console that looks like cardboard… don’t worry though, we’ve been rest assure that the console will still not get soggy if you leave it out in the rain, though it still probably isn’t a good idea to do so anyway!

There are three different categories you can enter, which means there are three different ways to win:

  • Creations: Got an idea for your own original Toy-Con creation? Grab some cardboard sheets, dive into Toy-Con Garage and see where your creativity takes you – the sky’s the limit!
  • Customisations: Break out the pens, paints, stickers, stencils and anything you can find, and show us your one-of-a-kind customised Toy-Con designs!
  • Kids: In this category, children up to the age of 12 can submit an original Toy-Con creation or customisation. You can even get some help from a parent or guardian.

The submission period will take place between the 19th July 2018 and the 7th September 2018, but it still may be a good idea to start now so that you can submit your videos and photos ready for when submissions open next month!

You can find out more about the contest here. Happy creating and best of luck!
