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!

September Nintendo Direct Incoming

Summer is officially over, no need to frown though as Nintendo just announced when their next Nintendo Direct presentation will air… TOMORROW!

Nintendo will be detailing on various upcoming Nintendo Switch titles, such as Luigi’s Mansion 3 and Pokémon Sword and Shield, on Wednesday 4th September 2019 from 11pm BST. Those across the pond can catch it at 3pm PT and 6pm ET.

It’s likely that Nintendo have some surprises up their sleeves regarding unannounced titles but what are you hoping for most tomorrow?

Introducing the Nintendo Switch Lite

To help get us through the rest of the week, Nintendo held a surprise announcement, introducing a brand new member of the Nintendo Switch family; Nintendo Switch Lite.

The new system, which launches worldwide on the 20th September, is an alternative option for player who want a cheaper and exclusively handheld Nintendo Switch experience. The Nintendo Switch Lite has a smaller form factor, integrated controls, a lighter weight, a slightly smaller screen, and can only be used in handheld mode, perfect for gamers who are constantly on the go. In addition to this, the current D-Pad has been replaced with a more traditional D-Pad and features such as the IR Camera, HD Rumble, and kickstand have been removed. Due to being a dedicated for handheld, the Nintendo Switch Lite can only play Nintendo Switch games compatible with handheld mode, additionally any games that use tabletop mode will require you to wirelessly connect separate JoyCons as well as own a means to charge them, such as the charging grip. You can see what else is different over on the official website.

Nintendo Switch Lite pays homage to the DS Lite in more than just the name. The console will be launched in three pastel colours: grey, yellow, and turquoise. That’s not all, Nintendo America have also announced a special edition of the console based off Pokémon Sword and Shield’s Zacian and Zamazenta… though as it currently stands, the game will still be sold separately from the Zacian and Zamazenta Edition.

The Switch Lite already has me thinking about the future of the Nintendo Switch family. As the Nintendo Switch Lite seems to be emphasising a lot on being colourful, does this mean we will finally see the introduction of themes to customise our Nintendo Switch experience further? Is the inclusion of a more traditional D-Pad a sign that Nintendo will soon launch new JoyCons to follow suit? Finally, could we potentially see a more powerful sibling to the Nintendo Switch somewhere down the line?

What did you think of the announcement? Will you be picking up a Nintendo Switch Lite when it launches in September? What’s your favourite colour of the three? Tell us in the comments below or on our social media pages

Pokémon Direct – June 2019

The latest Nintendo Direct just finished up, which spilled the beans on the much anticipated Pokémon Sword and Shield for Nintendo Switch. The 15 minute presentation revealed a whole bunch of new information regarding the Pokémon title, personally I’m pretty chuffed that Nintendo have recognised my power and immortalised me as champion in the game!

Check out our full summary, after the break!

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!
