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!

Countdown to Smash – Two more characters that should be in Ultimate

It’s so close, but I’ sure these last two-ish days may feel like the longest. Yes, just under two days remain until Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launches onto Nintendo Switch.

Due to a telling off of a couple friends, today’s countdown to smash will include a further two characters that should be added to Smash… are you happy now, Carlton! Check it out after the break.

UPDATE 3 If you order from Smyths’ online store, you can get the Limited Edition for £5 cheaper. If you go in store, you can get it £10 cheaper.

UPDATE 2 GAME now has the Limited Edition available for preorder here.

UPDATE Only lasted a couple days, which is longer than expected, but fear not, Amazon UK now has you covered, plus they ship to the UK too! Preorder here. Note that this lacks the steelbook offered by Nintendo UK

Soon after the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Nintendo Direct Wednesday, Nintendo UK announced the Limited Edition bundle. This limited edition comes bundled with the Super smash Bros. Ultimate game, a GameCube Controller Adaptor, and a Smash Bros. GameCube controller, would be available to purchase.

Not only has the Nintendo UK Store launched preorders for the bundle, but the listing also states that the bundle comes with a limited edition steelbook too. The limited edition bundle can be preordered from the Nintendo UK Store here! If you just want the game and the steelbook, you can preorder that here! Grab them while they are in stock.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct Summary (08/08/18)

Wow, that Nintendo Direct was exhausting, but in the you just exercised feel good for yourself kind of way. Sakurai talked about enough to keep people excited, but left enough secrets to keep us wanting more, he even left a very big reveal for the end which fans have been wanting for a while.

If you have been living under a rock the past week, or if, like Sam, you only had a five minute break at college, don’t you worry, I have written a rather spiffing summary for your convenience. If you aren’t the reading type, then I’ve conveniently embedded the recording below just for you. Even though it will not get me an extra click, I still think it is a very generous trade-off for reader satisfaction!

…but you do get subtitles MWAHAHAHAHA!

Now, for you linguists out there,  our written summary of the event can be found right after the break!

Off screen Super Smash Bros. Ultimate gameplay

Sunday just gone, I was able to attend the Nintendo UK VS Live event. Not only were there some fun tournaments to compete in and to watch, but there were also a bunch of upcoming Switch games to play too, including Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

I was able to record some off screen footage of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, both videos can be viewed below. The first is from the Spirit Train stage, originally from the 3DS iteration, and the second is from Green Hill Zone.

E3 2018 – Nintendo Direct Overview and Reactions

Unfortunately I could not post live updates as I was hosting an E3 viewing party as part of BourneNintendo as well as manning the E3 Bingo Board. I’ve decided that, instead of posting all the updates in multiple posts, I’ve decided to just talk about everything, along with my reactions, in this one post. Not only will it save us bandwidth (not a total issue), but you don’t have to keep loading new posts! Win win!

Anywho, I swear I always start off with the same statement, or similar, either way, that was definitely an interesting Nintendo Direct. I was pleasantly surprised by a lot of announcements as well as impressed, though there have definitely been better Nintendo Directs in the past. Heck, the Nintendo Direct before this one felt more like an E3 Direct!

Without further ado, if you missed out on the direct, you can find our recap after the break!

The Return of Game Days!

Those of you who have been on the forums since the beginning of 3DS Buzz may remember a special event we would hold from time to time called 3DS Buzz Game Days. Well, I have some exciting news, Game Days is making a return next week!

For those not in the know, Game Days are organised days where the community plays a bunch of games online together. Anyone is able to participate at any time during the session, and it isn’t anything competitive, it’s just so that we are all able to have a bit of fun without worrying about ranks and whatnot. It’s also perfect for those who are a bit nervous about playing online, I still find it daunting with some titles, especially in games like Super Smash Bros., which I am horrible at against competent opponents.

Find out more after the break!
