  • Poll What Did You Think of the Splatoon 2 Global Testfire on Nintendo Switch?

    We have an inkling that you had fun

    Well, it was fun while it lasted - the past weekend brought us six hours of gameplay in the Splatoon 2 Global Testfire. Thanks to timezones it's likely most missed a session or two, but nevertheless it was a chance to try out two new stages, an all-new weapon and various adjusted old favourites. We played it a...

  • News Taiwanese Report Suggests Nintendo Expects To Hit 20 Million Switch Sales In Year One

    Could it eclipse Wii U sales in less than 12 months?

  • News ACA Neo Geo's TATE Mode Hints At A Glorious Future For Vertically-Scrolling Shooters On Switch

    Looking sideways

    When the Switch was first revealed several (older) members of the Nintendo Life team expressed the opinion that it would be utterly perfect for hosting old-school vertically-scrolling shooters when played in "TATE" mode - basically, when turned on its side so the screen is in portrait ordination rather than landscape. It would seem...

    1-2-Switch just got real

    For some mysterious reason one minigame in 1-2-Switch has captured the hearts and minds of gamers across the globe. Of course we're talking about the cow milking game, for which our friends over at Tiny Cartridge did such a good job of capturing the delicious awkwardness of playing. Alarmed by this over-simplification of...

    When it comes to the UK charts covering last week, there was only going to be one winner to take the top spot - Mass Effect: Andromeda. Though Nintendo continues to labour a little in this particular territory, the most recent results bring a few bright spots. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, for...

    "E3 is going to be a major opportunity for us"

    After what was a bit of a muted E3 for Nintendo last year (bar Zelda: Breath of the Wild, of course), Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime suggests that the big N will be looking to make a major splash for 2017's event. Speaking to Fox News, the Reggienator had the following to say: E3 is...

  • Video Digital Foundry Puts Various Portable Chargers to the Test With Nintendo Switch

    Get yourself 10+ hours of gaming on the go

    The Nintendo Switch battery, considering its housing within a small portable device and the demands placed on it by the system's processing, isn't too bad. With low-stress games like Blaster Master Zero you can realistically hope for 5+ hours, but playing a demanding game like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of...

    Quit your day job

    Starting its life as a PC and Wii U game before eventually making its way to mobile devices and finally Switch, Human Resource Machine is the rare type of game that feels at home on almost any platform. This is due in large part to its unconventional gameplay, coupled with an adorable art style that lulls its players into believing...

    Diggin' Dorothy

    SteamWorld Dig 2 was chosen to lead off the Switch Nindie Showcase, broadcast shortly before the system launched. The original SteamWorld Dig was a bit of a breakout hit for Image & Form, of course - though the studio had a long track record before that 3DS eShop release, it has often admitted that the success of that game took...
