Zen Studios Brings Pinball with Replay Value to Star Wars on Switch

In preparation for the Skywalker Saga to end, what better way to catch up on the past 42 years of cinema history than pinball?

Star Wars Pinball, the first Star Wars game for Nintendo Switch, seems ready to ask and answer that question, and with all ten feature films, two animated shows and parsecs of lore hidden across 19 pinball tables, this game is filled further to the brim with canon Star Wars knowledge more than any other in this galaxy.

Mobile Developer Brings Free Arcade Racing to Switch

Offering free local and online multiplayer, Asphalt 9: Legends looks to be more than just a simple mobile port when it hits the Nintendo eShop this fall.

Asphalt 9: Legends is one of many titles that development studio Gameloft has been working on this year. Originally from a mobile racing series, this version of Asphalt 9 is bringing the arcade-like racer to a Nintendo console for the first time, and somewhere between simulation and mascot racing, it definitely benefits from console controls.

New Super Lucky’s Tale: My Favorite Game of E3 2019

DISCLAIMER: I know I’m late! Between working my tail off at two jobs this summer, enjoying some much-needed vacation and starting a new life in a city far away from home, I’ve just now been able to write about my E3 experience. Thanks in advance for reading nonetheless!

Ask most Nintendo fans who were able to enjoy the company’s presence on the show floor of the Electronic Entertainment Expo this past June what their favorite title was, and you’ll likely come up with the same responses I so often heard. The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. Luigi’s Mansion 3. Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield. I was also impressed by the adorable aesthetic of the newest Zelda remake; I felt the satisfying sensation of pummeling ghouls into the dirt in Luigi’s upcoming haunted installment for the Switch; and Pokémon continued to deliver the gym-based gameplay, this time, with a new dynamax gimmick.

While I had the glorious chance to test out all those titles, one indie game showcased in Nintendo’s booth space actually stuck out to me the most. And as I had continued my E3 adventure, frequenting multiple other titles throughout the week in June, I realized that New Super Lucky’s Tale was my favorite game I had played at E3.

E3 Delivers Amazing Games, Great Friendships

LOS ANGELES — The annual Electronic Entertainment Expo, better known as E3, was an even better experience than I had imagined it was growing up.

This year’s event was hosted from June 11-13, and video game development companies shared their newest products in the expansive Los Angeles Convention Center as usual. While this year marked a significant absence from Sony, the company that has brought gamers the PlayStation consoles, there was still plenty of fun jam-packed into two massive display halls.

To learn more about my individual E3 experience, make the jump and dive into the three days of summer fun, complete with exclusive anecdotes and video coverage!

Nintendo’s E3 2019’s plans detailed

Only a month away until every gamers’ second Christmas, and Nintendo have now revealed their full plans for E3 2019. As expected, Nintendo will be starting the show a bit early with the 2019 world championships for Splatoon 2 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. These competitive events will be streamed live from Los Angeles from 7pm BST on Saturday 8th June!

Nintendo do love to tease us lot, so it’s rather suiting that their E3 Direct doesn’t air until a few days later. Nintendo’s E3 2019 Direct, which airs on Tuesday 11th June from 5pm BST, promises to showcase upcoming games and software coming to the Nintendo Switch system. It’s likely to expect games such as Animal Crossing, Luigi’s Mansion 3, and a few other surprises during the presentation. In addition to this, from the moment the Nintendo Direct ends, Nintendo will be hosting their usual Nintendo Treehouse Live segments until Thursday 13th June. Nintendo Treehouse Live focuses on live gameplay from upcoming games, and sometimes includes a couple extra surprise announcements.

You can catch all the latest Nintendo E3 announcements here at NintyBuzz over on the E3 2019 Hub where we will have Nintendo’s live streams, a news stream of Nintendo E3 news, and a live blog to document our excitement during E3 week!

E3 2018 – The Smashing Return of NintyBeats

Out of all the surprise announcements from E3 2018 this week, there is one I bet you definitely never saw coming… the return of NintyBeats!

For those unaware, a couple years ago I used to run a regular segment which existed solely to give appreciation to the musical history of Nintendo games. Without the music, a lot of games would loose so much of their charm and personality.

What’s a better time to revive the segment than with a preview of some songs featured in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate? Prepare for auditory pleasure, after the break!

E3 2018 – Super Smash Bros. Invitational and Splatoon 2 World Championship Winners Crowned

Not only did Nintendo host the E3 Direct and Treehouse Live Day One yesterday, but they also hosted the finale of two prestigious tournaments: the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Invitationals and the Splatoon 2 World Championships.

It was a messy fight, but the squid squad all the way from Japan, GG BoyZ, inked their way to the top in the Splatoon 2 World Championships.

Playing as Mario, he travelled all the way from Chilie, and returned from the 2014 invitational to defend his smashing title, ZeRo claimed all the glory in the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate invitational!

Congratulations to both GG BoyZ and ZeRo on some riveting matches last night. If you’re like me, and didn’t catch the tournament live, you can view the entire stream below (skip to 4:24:00 if it doesn’t start from there automatically)!
