Two Tribes isn't dead yet, putting RIVE on the Switch

Rive was supposed to be Two Tribes' last game, but they're not done yet! Just like the crew in Ocean's 13 they're coming back for "one last job," but don't get too excited -- it's quite literally just a port job. Yep, Two Tribes has an...   read

Voez, a Switch launch game in Japan, cannot be played in TV mode

Having a Nintendo system be region free again is so weird. Whereas the logistics of ordering up a Wii U game would have been a nightmare (3DS less so given how cheap the systems are, even by way of importing), playing a Japan-only game on t...   read

You can swap between 8-bit and HD visuals at any time in Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap

A handful of games have done the whole "swap aesthetics" thing over the past few years or so, and it's a really great feature. Although I would have settled for an "either or" option that would entice me to beat the game twice, going above ...   read

On the cusp of Nintendo's uncertain future, I played video games in the desert with John Cena

It's about 9:30 AM on a Thursday, it's an unheard-of-for-Los-Angeles 55 degrees out made worse by intense winds, and I'm ready to see the Nintendo Switch for the second time, days before the console launches. The Switch is ostensibly the re...   read

We played Zelda: Breath of the Wild for 30 hours - have any questions?

Since we've previewed Zelda: Breath of the Wild multiple times during the many events Nintendo has hosted for it in the past few years, I figured we'd try something different. If you have any questions about the game, provided that I c...   read

The new Lego City Undercover ports are set for early April

Battle Princess Madelyn has that Ghouls 'n Ghosts flavor

I'll happily get down with more games that draw from Ghouls 'n Goblins and this new one, Battle Princess Madelyn, has a few extra niceties going for it. Besides looking and sounding the part, there's the range of targeted platforms -- PC, ...   read

Bethesda is still somehow being cagey about Elder Scrolls: Skyrim on Switch

In a Polygon interview rife with info regarding the future of Bethesda and some of Todd Howard's potential future projects, one thing stands out -- we still know next to nothing about Skyrim on the Switch. When asked, Howard's response is t...   read

The Nintendo Switch won't have any form of family sharing between consoles

There's a lot of hubbub in the digital era regarding sharing games. Digital often features more drawbacks than positives, so things like family sharing on modern consoles, where you can download games to several systems, adds to the allure ...   read

Physical Nintendo Switch carts don't require a mandatory install

Here's everything you get with your Nintendo Switch

I was surprised to open up the box for the Nintendo Switch and see so much empty space. I mean, the system, basically, is comprised of the tablet you see above (or below), and the dock. Clicking in the two Joy-Con to the sides of said table...   read

eShop will be ready at Switch launch with 'Nindies' including timed exclusive Shovel Knight DLC

As if ashamed by all the things it won't have at launch, Nintendo is boasting that it will in fact have the eShop up and running at launch (as it should), though it will require a system update that will be available at launch. Those who ha...   read

TowerFall creator's new game Celeste headed to Switch

As you may already know, good-game-maker Matt Thorson is making another game, one that I hope and think will also be good. It's a "hardcore" platformer called Celeste. The last time we spoke about it, the release platforms weren't yet know...   read

Nintendo of France expects the Switch to eclipse the Wii U by year's end

Talk about a sibling rivalry of Cain and Abel proportions, but the projections for the Switch versus the Wii U are some real salting the Earth type stuff. Nintendo of France's deputy general manager Philippe Lavoue recently came o...   read

GameStop: Switch has a higher attach rate than Wii U

Maybe don't watch this spoilery Zelda: Breath of the Wild video

There's a lot going on this Japanese television ad for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Too much, probably! You're not going to want to see it if you've held out this long and remained relatively spoiler-free. Stay strong, and also...   read
