Well, what another busy week we've had. Joker finally arrived in Smash Bros. Ultimate, Capcom announced a new plug-and-play arcade stick, and Reggie has been stealing all of the headlines with his retirement, but now it's time to sit back, relax, and talk about which games we'll be playing over the weekend. As always, members of the Nintendo Life team have gathered to talk about our plans below and we'd love for you to join in with our poll and comment sections. Enjoy!

I'm rather determined to make the best use of this long weekend as possible but, at the time of writing this, I'm not exactly sure how I'll be doing just that. There'll probably be a little bit of Yoshi's Crafted World in there (my partner and I are slowly working towards completion on that one) but I've also developed a sudden desire to pick up any and every older game possible to start a proper collection.
My younger self foolishly decided to sell off a lot of old games and I'm growing more annoyed at myself with each passing day. As such, I might end up trying to figure out the best ways to pick up lots of games or even a console or two that I'm missing for future purchases - there's the pesky matter of saving money for important life things to deal with first, but hopefully one day I'll be able to treat myself! My N64 library, in particular, could use a good boost...

Last Friday I was out of the flat when my Labo VR Kit arrived, but the building superintendent took the delivery. Phew! Unfortunately, I arrived home late that night and said package would remain locked in his office until Monday morning. To add insult to injury, I could see the damn box sitting there through the window!
So, that means I’ll be constructing my cardboard blaster this weekend instead. I’ll also be tinkering with my recently procured original Game Boy in honour of its birthday on Sunday. It’s got a line of dead pixels, but that won’t stop me enjoying some classics. It could do with a cleanup and a backlight, too… I feel a project coming on! Have a fantastic long weekend everyone.

I have decided to skip Cuphead until the physical release hits so this weekend will be once again filled with all sorts of Super Robot Wars T insanity. I will partake in Splatoon 2’s Spring Fest and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's Castlevania themed spirit event while giving Joker a proper go. I will also be surely spending an insane amount of time playing Super Nintendo and Game Boy for “nostalgic research”.
My game of the week goes to the artistic carnage of Katana ZERO. When a game gets refused certification in Australia, you know you are in for a good time!

My plans this holiday weekend will involve finally sinking my teeth into My Time at Portia, finishing the buildouts for the rest of the Labo VR kit (I’ve only gotten through about half), as well as getting a bit further in Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (I hadn’t played this game before - but I got it ultra-cheap thanks to Target’s catalog misprint, so I finally caved). Excited to have so many new games to dig into!
