It's the weekeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeend *cough cough splutter*.

We made it through another week, folks. Well done. It's been quite an interesting one, hasn't it? With only one month to go until the launch of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Nintendo graced us with the third and final trailer for the game, and boy, was it a good one!

There was so much to unpack from the new footage, so we did just that with a comprehensive breakdown; be sure to check that out. With the proper introduction of Ganondorf, it seems many folks are quite taken with the character's new burly look. Adding fuel to the fire, it was confirmed that the wonderful Matthew Mercer would be voicing Ganondorf in his latest appearance. Phew, we're sweating.

In other news, the Super Mario Bros. theme tune was added to the Library of Congress, making it the first video game track to do so. Mega Man Battle Network got a solid recommendation from us in our review, and finally, it was confirmed that PolyGame Master Arcade titles are not only coming to the Switch, but they're out now in a handy little collection.

Now it's time to kick back with some gaming. Let's see what we've all got planned for this weekend, shall we?

Once again, I've not really got a lot on the go with my Switch. The latest trailer for Tears of the Kingdom just confirmed that I'm really not in a position to get heavily invested in anything on the Switch right now, I'm quite content just to wait and get excited as the days pass by. That said, I am giving Signalis another go. I love that game so much, and I've cranked up the difficulty with this new playthrough.

Elsewhere, I've just completed my first playthrough of Dead Space on the Series X, and my word, it's a wonderful game. Just wonderful. EA Motive really nailed it with this remake. I'm going to go through it again and try out 'Impossible Mode', so wish me luck.

If this week's trailer talk taught me one thing, it's that I really need to get on and finish Skyward Sword HD before TOTK comes my way. Those pesky controls keep stopping me from actually getting in and enjoying the game, but perhaps it would be better to just put a good few hours aside this weekend and try to plough through some dungeons instead.

I also have a couple more 3DS eShop titles that I still haven't touched since my last-minute purchases a few weeks ago. I beat Shovel Knight this week (hot take: great game) so might head into something completely different with Attack of the Friday Monsters to try to help me out of the 'just finished a game' blues.

I just started replaying Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow for a quick hit of Metroidvania nostalgia, and this is way better than I remember it being. Seal drawing aside, of course. The castle is great, the music is amazing, and Soma's Power of Dominance is just expanded upon from Aria of Sorrow. From Aria all of the way to Order of Ecclesia, the Castlevania series really didn't miss, did it?

I've also booted up Breath of the Wild for the first time in years tor readjust myself with the movement and the world ahead of Tears of the Kingdom's launch next month. Will I actually try and finish the Hyrule Compendium? Who can say.

I'm still polishing off the fantastic Metroid Prime Remastered just now, so hopefully I'll finally have that wrapped up over the next few days and I'm also deep into our Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp review, so keep an eye out for my thoughts on that one fairly soon.

Elsewhere, I have rather foolishly convinced myself I can return to Breath of the Wild in order to play through it all again before Tears of the Kingdom arrives (never gonna happen, PJ) and I've been thoroughly enjoying dipping into the fantastic Dredge for my Lovecraftian fix before bed the past few evenings. There's definitely something not right in them there waters.

Have a great weekend!

Bit of a setback on my Nintendo 64 revisit: I dropped my N64 pad on the hard floor and busted the cable connection. A replacement on the way, but it won’t be here until next week. Bummer! Curse of the Sea Rats continues to delight while Everspace 2 just keeps redefining the word “epic” with every new mission. I need to clear my schedule for next weekend’s Advance Wars marathon.

Game of the Week is TRON: Identity. Saw one of the ends already, outstanding fan service for TRON fans like myself. I look forward to see where Bithell Games takes the franchise next. That said, nSpace’s TRON Evolution: Battle Grids on Wii remains the greatest TRON game ever made. End of line.

We hope you enjoyed reading! Add the game that you'll be maining in the poll below and leave a comment with your gaming plans for the weekend ahead!

What are you playing this weekend (15th/16th April)?
