Bayonetta first graced Nintendo consoles back in 2014 when it was re-released with the launch of Bayonetta 2 on Wii U. It blew away fans and critics with it fast paced hack and slash game play and it’s don’t care attitude. Thankfully this classic has come back for another go with new features including amiibo support, tighter framerates and sharper visuals on Nintendo Switch! When Bayonetta was originally brought over to Wii U they gave it some unique content in…

One of the most common criticisms I see aimed at Breath of the Wild relates to its dynamic weather system. Over the course of Link’s adventure, players will see weather conditions change in real time, as they fluidly transition from clear skies, to fog, to rain, etc. While these weather fluctuations do add an element of realism to Breath‘s world, many players found the abrupt changes between conditions to be extremely irritating, especially when the raindrops start to fall.

Aside from losing your phone, one of the most expensive portable things a gamer can lose nowadays is a Nintendo Switch cartridge. Slightly smaller than a 3DS cartridge, this little piece of gaming goodness’ only saving grace is the much bigger box it originally comes in. Sure there are portable carrying cases you can buy, but why do that when you can hold your precious copy of Breath of the Wild on a keychain? The gaming accessory company Max Limited…

Nintendo Switch Online, as it is called, will be a premium monthly subscription service and will cost $20 USD annually. Subscribers to the service will be able to play Switch games online (online play will be free until the service launches) and will also have access to classic Nintendo games like Super Mario Bros. 3, Balloon Fight, and Dr. Mario.

The Nvidia Shield launched in Chinese markets late last year, and, as part of a partnership between Nvidia, Nintendo, and Chinese video company iQiyi, various HD ports of classic Wii titles (like Twilight Princess) were released exclusively for the set-top box in the region. The release of these ports led to speculation on how these games were handled on the device, as reports were unsure if they were available via streaming or they were achieved through emulation. Well, the pervading…

A few years back, Japanese toy manufacturer Medicom unveiled a snazzy Breath of the Wild Link action figure as part of their Real Action Heroes series. We were simply stunned by the prototype images shown back then, and we were hankering to know when the world could get its hands on the new figure. Well it’s been a long time coming, but Medicom’s Breath of the Wild Link figure has finally released in Japan this week. Nintendo of Japan and…

Nintendo, it seems, has not forgotten this positive reception. Reports are claiming that Nintendo PR has been reaching out to various gaming sites recently, requesting permission to re-quote reviews of A Link Between Worlds for promotional purposes. While there are currently no explanations for…
