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.

Rayman Legends Definitive Edition Demo Out Now

The limbless hero is punching his way onto the Nintendo Switch in a month’s time, but in the meantime Ubisoft has launched the demo for Rayman Legends Definitive Edition for the European Nintendo eShop today (the US will receive it a little later today).

You can download it now if you have a European Nintendo Switch account by going to the Coming Soon tab on the eShop, clicking Rayman Legends Definitive Edition, and then giving Download Demo a good tap! The demo requires approximately 730mb to download.

Rayman Legends Definitive Edition releases exclusively for the Nintendo Switch on the 12th September 2017.

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!

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Revealed

A very unlikely crossover (unless you’ve been following certain rumours) was revealed earlier at Ubisoft’s E3 Conference, exclusively for Nintendo Switch. The new tactical adventure, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle has been officially announced, and will be releasing in the West on the 29th August 2017 (that’s a day before my 22nd birthday y’all).

The game, which has been in the works for three years, follows a new adventure where Rabbids have somehow found a way to invade a new universe, specifically the Mushroom Kingdom. Unfortunately some of the Rabbids have gone bad (or rabid), so it is up to Mario to team up with other Rabbids to put an end to this chaos.

The game is primarily a turn based tactical RPG (similar to Fire Emblem), but will also include some exploration segments too. Each characters will have their own abilities, there are support abilities too, and you also have the ability to destroy cover if you are a bit of a daredevil! Finally, it was also announced by the man himself that Grant Kirkhope was involved with creating the music for the title.

Check out the announcement videos, screenshots, and art after the break!
