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!

New Paper Mario: The Origami King Details Emerge

With nearly a month until Paper Mario: The Origami King launches for Nintendo Switch, more details about the upcoming title have been announced. King Olly has commandeered Peach’s Castle in an attempt to fold up the world. Binding the castle, massive streamers are sprawled across the land and it’s up to Mario to unravel them at their source.

The new trailer has introduced some new unlikely companions, including Bobby, a Bob-Omb suffering from amnesia, and Olivia, King Olly’s kind-hearted sister. The trailer also went in-depth on how the new ring-based battles will work. Mario can rotate rings and slide columns to try and bunch up enemies before the timer runs out. You’ll then have to decide which of your weapons to use to make the biggest impact.

Taking on the big bad bosses of the world, aptly named ‘The Legion of Stationery’, takes a slightly different approach. This time you’ll have to move the rings and columns to build a path for Mario to reach the boss in the centre. Having trouble? Depending on how many Toads you have rescued during your adventure may affect how much support they’ll provide in-battle. Always worth helping a little guy in need!

Check out the new trailer below, as well as a press release and gallery after the break!

NintyBeats – November 2019

The music of Nintendo games make them truly remarkable and memorable. To show our love of the music, we aim to share a selection of tracks from various Nintendo titles, new and old.

Welcome to another NintyBeats feature! To kick things off, I wanted to start from the beginning, and share music from some of the first Nintendo released games I ever played.

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!

Trick or Treat!

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!

Nintendo: Riskier Than Ever With IP

Sometimes, in the late 2010s, it’s surreal to see what Nintendo has been up to. A handheld-console hybrid seemed like a daring new venture the innovative company would come up with sooner or later. Ambitious titles like Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild felt right, and those games mirror other major leaps forward in titles like the original Legend of Zelda on the NES and Super Mario 64.

But what none of us probably saw coming is just exactly how risky Nintendo would play it by licensing out its most prominent intellectual properties to Ubisoft and Brace Yourself Games.

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.
