Animal Crossing: New Horizons Summer Update Wave #01 Announcement

Nintendo’s 2020 hit Animal Crossing: New Horizons, yesterday announced the first part of its free Summer update. In a video tweeted by the official Animal Crossing account, the villager can be seen swimming, dunking and diving for sea creatures. This long-awaited addition to the villager’s abilities was discovered by data miners earlier in the year, and it’s great to see it added into the game.

I have been gaming for 30 years, starting mostly with PC Gaming, where I developed a penchant for classic point and click games. Over time I discovered Nintendo, starting with the Game Boy and the Super Mario Land games. Here, my love for Nintendo grew as I discovered many of their other franchises, from Zelda to Pokémon. These days I play a bit of everything but Nintendo and their unique creativity always keeps me coming back for more.

Pokémon Presents reveals new titles for Nintendo Switch and mobile devices

June is usually a big month for game announcements, courtesy of the E3 Expo. However, its cancellation this year has resulted in developers and publishers instead choosing to share their game announcements via video conferences and live streams. Last week saw Sony fully unveiling the Playstation 5, whilst Microsoft have made plans to show more of the Xbox Series X in July – however Nintendo, as they like to do best, are keeping fans waiting for news about what the year ahead holds for Switch owners.  While there is still no sign of an imminent Nintendo Direct, the Pokémon company have this afternoon shared some announcements of their own. Although this Pokémon direct was lacking in new console announcements (sorry to those of you anticipating the Pokémon Mini 2) it did have a few intriguing announcements of its own, with three new titles revealed to the public along with further details about games which have already been released. Read on to find out more.

New Paper Mario: The Origami King Details Emerge

With nearly a month until Paper Mario: The Origami King launches for Nintendo Switch, more details about the upcoming title have been announced. King Olly has commandeered Peach’s Castle in an attempt to fold up the world. Binding the castle, massive streamers are sprawled across the land and it’s up to Mario to unravel them at their source.

The new trailer has introduced some new unlikely companions, including Bobby, a Bob-Omb suffering from amnesia, and Olivia, King Olly’s kind-hearted sister. The trailer also went in-depth on how the new ring-based battles will work. Mario can rotate rings and slide columns to try and bunch up enemies before the timer runs out. You’ll then have to decide which of your weapons to use to make the biggest impact.

Taking on the big bad bosses of the world, aptly named ‘The Legion of Stationery’, takes a slightly different approach. This time you’ll have to move the rings and columns to build a path for Mario to reach the boss in the centre. Having trouble? Depending on how many Toads you have rescued during your adventure may affect how much support they’ll provide in-battle. Always worth helping a little guy in need!

Check out the new trailer below, as well as a press release and gallery after the break!

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!
