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.

Weekly European Nintendo eShop Update – 16/08/18

It’s Thursday, which means that the Nintendo eShop is dropping some more digital goodies on the Nintendo eShops.

This week, prepare for the hunt in Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate Demo Version, help your friends defuse a bomb in Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, and much more!

Find out what’s new after the break!


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.

Nintendo Switch Online Service to launch late September

There’s only a month or so to go before the Nintendo Switch Online Service launches. Though it is a premium service which will enable online play, the service will also include things like cloud saves for compatible titles and NES games with online play, and it will all be available at the low price of £17.99 a year.

Nintendo UK just sent a press release regarding the release. Though no specific date was mentioned, they did offer the more specific timeframe of the second half of September. Here’s hoping we get some form of Nintendo Direct before then for them to really promote the service before its launch.

You can read the full press release after the break!

OMG! Double Barrel Shotgun all the way in Fortnite update

The dudes, dudettes, and everything in-between at Epic Games have launched a brand new update for Fortnite, bringing the software version up to 5.20! There are two major editions to this update, a brand new weapon, and a brand new LTM (limited time mode).

The update introduces the brand new double barrelled shotgun that packs one heck of a punch at close range, which is exacerbated by it’s double shot. This ballistic weapon comes in both the Epic and Legendary variety, so pick one up before anyone else can for a close range devastation.

The update comes packed with a brand new LTM too; Steady Storm. Do you often find yourself searching for goodies while waiting for the storm to shrink again? Well, you better watch yourselves as this mode contains no safe zones. Once the storm starts, it will not stop, who knows where the eye of the storm will lead ya!

There have of course been a couple new additions to the Save the World mode, but as it still isn’t available to play on Switch, I’m going to keep that in the press release below along with the rest of the patch notes. Check them out after the break!

Rocket League Switch Exclusives Revealed

Today Psyonix showcased three Switch exclusive vehicles through their Rocket League YouTube channel.

The video showed (rather expected) Mario and Luigi vehicles named ‘Mario NSR’ and ‘Luigi NSR’ respectively. But as you may have guessed from the featured image, the show stopper was the car based on ‘Samus’ Gunship’ which looks absolutely stunning.

These vehicles come free and will be available to unlock on launch day (though we still know no further than Holiday 2017). And despite how gorgeous the trailer is, there wasn’t any gameplay so we don’t know if sparks and movement graphics will be replaced by Stars and rainbows for the Mario cars – at least I’m hoping for this attention to detail to be realised!

Pyonix still hasn’t detailed what the ‘exclusive customization items‘ will be, or whether any more vehicles will be released on or after launch, yet with the quality of that Metroid representation, I’m sure it’ll be just as awesome.
