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!

E3 2019 – Super Mario Maker 2 to add friend matchmaking after launch

During the Super Mario Maker 2 Direct from the other month, we found out that the title would allow players to play with or against one another online. A few days later during a preview event, a Nintendo representative claimed that the feature would only match you with random players, with no option to play with friends.

Contrary to this however, Super Mario Maker 2 director, Takashi Tezuka, confirmed that they are working on an update to be published post-launch that will add the ability to play with friends online. This was revealed during the Nintendo Treehouse Live today at E3 2019.

Super Mario Maker 2 launches exclusively for Nintendo Switch on the 28th June 2019
