  • Talking Point The Nintendo Switch is Modernising, But Has a Long Way to Go

    Slow and steady wins the race?

    This week brought us the latest notable update to the Nintendo Switch system, taking us to version 4.0.0; there was also an update to the Joy-Con controllers that does... something. It was a notable update in that it added a few major changes - the main additions were the ability to capture the last 30 seconds of...

    Major JRPG's "impossible" language barrier conquered at last

    "Impossible!" is the word used to describe something that can't be done... until someone does it for the first time. Tengai Makyō Zero (full title Far East of Eden: Tengai Makyō Zero) was one the major Super Famicom games with seemingly impossible translation; this late generation 1995...

    Review Spelunker Party!

    Spikes and boulders and traps, oh my!

    Revitalizing a decades old series is never an easy task, but Spelunker Party! manages to be a decent return while adding good multiplayer functionality. Don’t let the title throw you off. It’s easy to assume this is some kind of minigame collection or something along the lines of another Mario Party. That...

    Review Fire Emblem Warriors

    Nobody gets left behind

    Fire Emblem Warriors has already impressed us with its mix of real-time combat and tactical planning on Switch, and given the current popularity of that console it's easy to forget that the game has also come to the New Nintendo 3DS. While you'd be forgiven for overlooking this entry altogether, it's important to...

  • Anniversary It's One Year Since Nintendo Showed Us The Switch

    NX level stuff

    Incredibly, it's now one year since Nintendo lifted the lid on the Switch - and Nintendo Karen. Leaked many months ahead of the official reveal, the hybrid nature of the Switch - then known as "NX" - left some unconvinced. Even the announcement video itself - which focused on the system's ability to t

    With Star Wars: The Last Jedi just around the corner the release of Star Wars Battlefront II is well-timed, and we can expect the FPS title to gain plenty of attention, not just for its connection to the wider Star Wars universe but because it's shaping up to be a very impressive title...

    Review Putty Pals

    A Puzzler Built For Two

    The Nintendo Switch has brought social gaming back to the couch with aplomb. With the ability to literally disconnect two controllers and hand one to a buddy, how could it not? While competitive multiplayer has been the main thrust, cooperative experiences seem to be fewer and far between. Putty Pals is your friendly reminder...

    Sing when you're winning

    Ah, the Wii. The little system is now nearly 11 years old and was an outstanding commercial success; it also brought us a wonderful game library with plenty of titles that'll go down as Nintendo classics. Its broad appeal also made it ripe for various so-called 'casual' games, and despite the system being long since...

  • News Get a Good Look at Snipperclips Plus: Cut it out, together!

    Cute cutting

    The original Snipperclips - Cut it out, together! was a major early hit on the Switch eShop; developed by a small UK studio, Nintendo liked the concept enough to buy the IP and publish the game. It led the way in terms of early download-only sales on the store. It wasn't too surprising, then, when the most recent Nintendo...

    The world has seen a small army of Minecraft clones make their way to gaming consoles - some have been successful, others not so much.

    Certainly one of the crazier concepts for a game we have seen in recent times, King Oddball is set to land on the Switch's eShop with a bang - and there's not long to wait until it does. You take control of a boulder (the King of boulders it would seem) with the aim of using your ridiculously long tongue to lick up other, smaller...
