REVIEW – New Super Lucky’s Tale

I had high expectations for New Super Lucky’s Tale after I named it my favorite game I played at E3 2019 earlier this year. The developers expressed themselves as a passionate team wanting a second chance to make Super Lucky’s Tale, which originally released on Xbox One in autumn 2017, the most refined 3D platformer it could be.

Did the second chance pay off with New Super Lucky’s Tale on Nintendo Switch, or should Lucky burrow into hiding? Make the jump and dive into the Book of Ages to read more!

REVIEW – Luigi’s Mansion 3

When booking a hotel, there are various factors you have to consider. Do they have comfy beds? Will you get a room with a view? What’s the food like? Are the owners manically trying to trap you and your friends in a painting… forever? You can never be too careful with these things and, unfortunately, Luigi will learn about this the hard way in his latest spooky adventure.

Is Luigi’s Mansion 3 a title you’ll never want to check out of, or is it just simply not worth raising the dead for? Find out in our review, after the break!

PREVIEW – Working out working out with Ring Fit Adventure

About a month ago, Nintendo, coy as they are, teased a brand new experience for Nintendo Switch that garnered a lot of curiosity, as well as moments of ‘What the heck are you doing, Nintendo?’ Players and families from around the world in the teaser were investigating this mysterious ring device, and were later seen performing several actions with it.

A week later, the sweaty veil was lifted, introducing Ring Fit Adventure, an RPG game that encourages you to keep in shape. Earlier this week, we had the pleasure of trying out the new experience. Check out what we thought in our preview, after the break!

Sweatbands Initiated!

REVIEW – Untitled Goose Game

You’ve no doubt heard of the Untitled Goose Game.

NPUK X SMM2 Building the Kingdom – Luigi’s New Mansion

Nintendo communities from around the United Kingdom are once again looking for the best creators from around the nation in a brand new Super Mario Maker 2 level creation competition.

Today’s commission comes from none other than Big Boo himself. With Luigi currently exploring the ghastly halls of Last Resort, Big Boo thought Mario’s weakling of a… ahem, I mean STRONG brother should really go back to his roots by building a great big mansion full of great horrors delights.

We all know just how much Luigi loves the Boos, so this mansion should be full of them. Big Boo is also sure that Luigi would very much appreciate the complexity of haunted architecture so much so he would get completely ‘lost’ in the design. Finally, it is well known that Luigi is fond of magic, so it’s only right to make the expected unexpected.

If you’re feeling really creative and daring, you don’t necessarily have to use the ghost house theme… you could, for example, build a haunted pyramid themed mansion!

You’ll have until Monday 14th October 17:00 UK time to submit your level to your local NPUK Community. Don’t know where your’s is? You can use this tool to find out now! The top two levels from each community, shortlisted by an elusive judging panel, will then go into a national vote, where the top three levels will claim victory, as well as a sweet little prize!

Find out more about this competition here, and best of luck to you all!

REVIEW – 80 Days

In 1872, London, England, a bet was made that one could circumnavigate the globe in a mere 80 days. Such a bold claim for the time, nobody believed it could be done, so the bet was agreed to and Englishman Phileas Fogg set off by train with his French servant, Jean Passepartout, on October 2nd and was to arrive back in London by December 21st. This marks the beginning of the 1873 novel Around the World in Eighty Days, which would follow the adventures of the two men as they successfully travel across the world in the titled eighty days. But this isn’t a review of the novel, instead this is a look at Inkle’s 80 Days, now available on Nintendo Switch, after having been a mobile and PC game beforehand.

REVIEW – The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening

Twenty-six years ago, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening was released for the Nintendo GameBoy, and five years later in a colourised release for the GameBoy Color. Now, the adventure has been reimagined for a new audience with a release on Nintendo Switch, displayed in a three-dimensional widescreen view, compared to the original game’s square ratio. The game retains its traditional top-down formula, and is an enhanced remake of the original, including features from Link’s Awakening DX. But how does it compare to those classic GameBoy games?
