With the 25th anniversary fast approaching, we are taking a deep dive through Pokémon history, looking at some of the biggest decisions made in the mainline games that have had a lasting impact. In this article, we will look at everything from the original release of Pokémon Red and Green in Japan, all the way to Pokémon Sword and Shield in 2019.(more…)
The Crown Tundra is the second part of Pokémon Sword and Shield’s Expansion Pass. In my earlier review, I covered the first section of this downloadable content for Pokémon Sword, with The Isle of Armor, an area of Galar that features a new wild area and a short story featuring a new Pokémon called Kubfu. This latest update expands the region further into a snow-swept environment, where you can explore Pokémon dens and encounter powerful Pokémon! This new region was confirmed to be based on Scotland, United Kingdom!

Pokémon Sword and Shield are the first games in the series to introduce an expansion pass, providing downloadable content which adds new areas to the base game. In June 2020, the first part of this pass was released in the form of The Isle of Armor, a huge island situated to the east of the Galar region, with a varied landscape to explore! You can access the Isle of Armor by purchasing the appropriate expansion pass from the Nintendo eShop, and download the most recent update to Pokémon Sword and Shield. From there, head to Wedgehurst Station and show your pass to the rail staff, who will allow you to travel to the new area.(more…)
June is usually a big month for game announcements, courtesy of the E3 Expo. However, its cancellation this year has resulted in developers and publishers instead choosing to share their game announcements via video conferences and live streams. Last week saw Sony fully unveiling the Playstation 5, whilst Microsoft have made plans to show more of the Xbox Series X in July – however Nintendo, as they like to do best, are keeping fans waiting for news about what the year ahead holds for Switch owners. While there is still no sign of an imminent Nintendo Direct, the Pokémon company have this afternoon shared some announcements of their own. Although this Pokémon direct was lacking in new console announcements (sorry to those of you anticipating the Pokémon Mini 2) it did have a few intriguing announcements of its own, with three new titles revealed to the public along with further details about games which have already been released. Read on to find out more.(more…)
I have been gaming for 30 years, starting mostly with PC Gaming, where I developed a penchant for classic point and click games. Over time I discovered Nintendo, starting with the Game Boy and the Super Mario Land games. Here, my love for Nintendo grew as I discovered many of their other franchises, from Zelda to Pokémon. These days I play a bit of everything but Nintendo and their unique creativity always keeps me coming back for more.
Imagine waking up one day, only to realise you had been turned into a Pokémon, with no recollection of how it happened! What would you do? This is the dilemma you face in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX, a remake of the titles originally released for Nintendo Game Boy Advance and DS to mark their tenth anniversary.
I have always heard wonderful stories about the Mystery Dungeon games, and it was only this year that I had the pleasure of enjoying one for the very first time, Explorers of Sky on the Nintendo DS. I loved every moment of it, and so I was super enthusiastic about taking on the remake of the original Pokémon Mystery Dungeon titles in the form of Rescue Team DX.(more…)

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!
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.(more…)
