Surprisingly, the fox isn’t saving a princess from a pig-man
The opening moments of Tunic fooled us into thinking we were in for a derivative Zelda-like adventure. A diminutive fox-like character wearing a green tunic reminiscent of a certain hero wakes up on a beach. From an isometric camera angle, this fox (known as the Ruin Seeker) finds a...

On the Zelda home straight
Welcome back to another edition of What are you Playing, where we give you a brief rundown of the week in Nintendo before discussing what gaming we're all up to this weekend. The big news this time around is (deep breath) there are less than two weeks to go until Tears of the Kingdom!! This week, we shared our thoughts on...
Hardback manual also announced
When Tunic made its way over to the Switch back in September 2022, it quickly rocketed into our list of the very best games of the year. Now, we are raring to leap back into the little fox's mysterious world all over again as publisher Finji has today announced that the game will be getting a physical deluxe edition...
An eclectic mix
We're a few days into 2023 now, but many places are still looking back at last year's biggest and best games. And review aggregate site Metacritic is joining in, compiling multiple lists based on compiled reviews from multiple publications. Today, the site has revealed the Switch's best-reviewed games of 2022. The top 40 has some...
New year, old game
We did it everyone! 2022 is finally behind us and 2023 stretches happily into the great beyond. This is to be a year full of promise, a year of hope, a year of enough Nintendo releases (with any luck) to squeeze out an almost literal cry from our bank accounts. But for the moment we're not thinking about the future, we're looking...
Neon White, Sifu, and Tunic all net 3 noms each
The nominations are out for Geoff Keighley's yearly glamorous advertising and awards event, The Game Awards, which will be broadcast on Thursday, December 8th. Now, we're all well aware by this point that Nintendo's representation on these lists is usually pretty lacking until you get to the indies...
Wow. This week has been so full of news, we would be hesitant to add any more for fear of bursting. After long anticipating the releases of Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope and Persona 5 Royal on the Switch, who would have thought that Bayonetta 3 drama would overshadow it all? Hey, welcome to the world of Nintendo! Aside from...
'Content for no one'
Tunic has been out on the Switch for a little under a month now after gaining an impressive following on Xbox prior to this. As those of you who have played the game will know (and those who haven't should know), Tunic is full of secrets and puzzles. Finding pages of the mysterious manual opens up more of the world than you...
We did it, everyone. We made it through the working week with only 306 Pokémon Scarlet and Violet news drops to write of - perhaps this is a slight over-exaggeration, but you get the picture. This week we were lucky enough to head behind the scenes at Ubisoft to get a look at Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope as the game nears release...
Ladies and gentlemen, the Winter
We did it folks! We made it through the barrage of game releases — more commonly known as 'September' — and we live to write another day! Though October is looking just as packed... *gulp* Here at Nintendo Life, we've played through the unofficial Super Mario Bros. 5 fan game made entirely in Super Mario Maker...
