Farewell to 2020 Charity Stream

2020 has been a bit naff, hasn’t it, so what’s a better way to say farewell than to spend some quality time playing games with others while also supporting all the healthcare workers that have been working endlessly during the COVID-19 Pandemic? This Thursday we’ll be doing just that. We have a nice schedule of different games to play on Nintendo Switch we can all play together live on Twitch. In addition to our line-up of online gaming, we will also be hosting a fundraiser, raising money for the NHS Charities Together organisation to show our support for the countless healthcare workers who have received the brunt of this hellish year.

During the live stream, there will also be a chance to win a £50 Nintendo eShop voucher. There are a variety of ways to increase your chances of winning, though some of them won’t be clear until the actual day, so it is definitely worth tuning into the stream for further improve the odds.

You can check out our full schedule and info on how to enter our giveaway 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!

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!

It’s also been a whole year (and a couple days) since we started the first [the 3DS Buzz one was a pilot] ever Summer Splatathon Supreme Tournament. Wouldn’t you say now would be a good time to have another Splatathon?

Yup, that’s right! The Summer Splatathon is back for 2017, but this time we’ll be competing on Splatoon 2 for the Nintendo Switch. Registration is open now, just comment below or, preferably, reply to this thread (click here). That’s not all.

WIN – The Travelling Hylian

UPDATE – It seems I made a mistake while setting this giveaway up as no-one actually had permission to reply to the entry thread. This has now been fixed and I’ve also extended the deadline to the 24th July. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Link has been trekking the huge world of Hyrule for the past couple months, and he has ended up in some fairly interesting locations as of late.

To celebrate the recent release of The Master Trials DLC pack for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, we are giving away one lucky reader a download code for the Expansion Pass Bundle for the Nintendo Switch. This bundle includes access to both The Master Trials (Out Now) and The Champion’s Ballad (Coming Soon) DLC packs.

For you chance to win, just reply to the entry thread thread (click here) where you think Link is at the moment. If you don’t remember the name of the area, just plot a point on the map in the thread with an X (the middle of the X will be your entry), and we will pick someone from random who guessed correctly to win the code!

Please note that although the code only works for European accounts, you are still able to create your own European Switch account for free to redeem the code.

Check out where Link has been for your chance to win after the break!

TOURNEY – Summer Splat-a-thon Supreme 2016

Can you believe it, Summer is nearly over. We still can’t get over The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild from E3, but pretty soon we will have to return to normality, back to school, back to baggy trousers, that sort of thing. Luckily, we have one very last-minute organised trick up our sleeve to end Summer with a bang!

To top off the peak of Summer, we’d thought to host a new Splatoon tournament, the NintyBuzz Summer Splat-a-thon Supreme! We have actually already hosted this tournament before, back on 3DS Buzz Forums, before the big merge, last year. In the end, the member Pepe claimed victory and is chuffed with his Lucina Amiibo to top off his Fire Emblem series.

Check out all the info for this year after the break!
