Suda is writing and directing 'for the first time in 10 years'

Suda51 talked vaguely about a new Travis Touchdown game -- the lead character from the Wii's No More Heroes -- at Nintendo's Switch conference. The best news, though, for those of us who haven't been as thrilled with recent Grasshopper game...   read

Hold your blocks: Minecraft is also coming to the Switch

Minecraft just hit the Wii U fairly recently (in the grand scheme of Minecraft's lengthy lifespan, that is), but like most things that went to die on the Wii U, it's also coming to the Switch so you can buy it again like it didn't just...   read

Zelda: Breath of the Wild is 13gb on Wii U, 13.4gb on Nintendo Switch

Some more Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild minutia (Minish-uh?) for you: the game is 13gb on Wii U and 13.4 on Nintendo Switch. They're both out March 3 and I doubt the .4gb will influence which one you buy. It is worth remembering, thou...   read

Nintendo confirms that Zelda: Breath of the Wild hits Wii U at the same time as Switch

Yesterday was all about the Nintendo Switch. So much so, that the publisher neglected to even really mention the Wii U, relegating it to the status of that distant relative that you aren't even aware of until someone mentions it. But they c...   read

It's not quite F-Zero, but Fast RMX will do for now

I was tempted to make the title "Fast RMX is the next best thing," but it would actually be the next next best thing, after a Wipeout game (shout-out to Team Harimau!). Successor to highly rated Fast Racing Neo, Fast RMX by G...   read

Maybe the My Nintendo Store will be better than the current digital discount junkyard

My Nintendo has failed to impress day in and day out, and "updates" or news usually involve a new bad discount of some kind. I think they were banking too heavily on people getting swept up in Miitomo and Super Mario Run, in the sense ...   read

No wait really, the Nintendo Switch parental controls video is hilarious

I was late to the Switch party, but I found the best video of the lot! Nintendo's video guide to parental settings on the Switch is hilarious for a multitude of reasons and also pretty cute. In it Bowser imposes restrictions on poor ole Bo...   read

Here's what the Nintendo Switch in-store GameStop pre-order situation is like in the US

Having just returned from pre-ordering my Nintendo Switch and Zelda Special Edition, I have a better idea of what the in-store situation is like at GameStop. Going off of calls and experiences with roughly 10 stores, and an inside source at...   read

The price of the Nintendo Switch, and all its innards, is too damn high

Amidst all of the hype of the Nintendo Switch presentation, let's break one thing down -- this thing is going to be one of the priciest Nintendo consoles yet if you actually look at what everything costs. Now, $300 for the console itse...   read

Along with Amazon, Gamestop is quick on the Nintendo Switch draw. You can pre-order at their website here, or in-store by putting down $50 that will go towards the cost of the system. Here's hoping they don't undersell like they did with th...   read

So that's what the Nintendo Switch UI looks like

Given the form factor of the Nintendo Switch, I figured Nintendo would more than likely create a user interface similar to the one it has for the Wii U GamePad, only more refined. We didn't get a good look at the Switch UI during the compan...   read

Nintendo has some, uh, interesting ideas for the Switch
