Long time fan of Nintendo and games in general, I always lean on the quirkier and unique sides of things in particular. It all started when I was lucky enough to get a Gameboy Color and Pokemon Yellow for my tenth birthday and it’s been going strong ever since. I’ve always had a need to get my voice heard and share anything I find interesting with the world.

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!

Farewell, Reggie Fils-Aimé!

More than just a corporate president and COO, Reggie Fils-Aimé has shown the heart and soul of a video game enthusiast, cheerful leader and dedicated friend to the Nintendo community.

In this supercut, we wanted to celebrate all of Reggie’s public moments that left us with smiles (and maybe a few tears) on our faces. Since 2003, he’s been hard at work, helping to give fans and families experiences we will never forget.

As “Nintendo” loosely translates to “Leave Luck to Heaven,” we are grateful that Reggie will be able to retire and spend time with his loved ones before that 1-up afterlife. With Satoru Iwata fondly remembered and now with Reggie having sweetly parted ways (and joined Twitter!), we wait to see how the new generation of Nintendo leadership becomes as memorable and fun-loving in the eyes of the community of millions who support the greatest games in the industry.

I’ve been playing Nintendo games since I was 3 years old, and my earliest memory is watching my dad play Super Mario 64.
Since then, I’ve become as big of a fan as you might imagine: YouTube video projects, fan fiction, owning just about every amiibo — you name it!
I’m also a stalwart defender of underappreciated games like Skyward Sword, Other M, Super Paper Mario, Star Fox Adventures, Star Fox Zero and more. I love to see passion in a gaming product, and my desire on this site is to share a similar passion in what I write.

Dark Souls Remastered dated for Nintendo Switch… finally

I may be late to the party, but there is a thing called fashionably late… even if it’s for a party full of remorse and torture. That’s right, Dark Souls Remastered for Nintendo Switch has finally been dated, and it couldn’t launch at a better time, just before Halloween!

Whatever the reason for the delay, fans are sure to be excited to rage through Dark Souls anywhere, anytime, and with anyone on Nintendo Switch from the 19th October. The Solaire of Astora Amiibo will also launch on the same day.

Looking for a cool preorder bonus? Order from the UK Nintendo Store (click here for the listing) and you can expect your copy to come with a metallic plate with the cover art on it… okay, maybe the preorder bonus isn’t that glamorous, but at least we finally have a Switch release date, right? Though most retails have already allocated their Amiibo preorders, you can still get an order in from the Bandai store here.
