Nintendo Download: Danmaku Unlimited 3

The Switch, for what feels like the millionth week, completely dominates today's Nintendo Download list as developers slowly move from the 3DS to the Switch. Alongside of the marquee Danmaku Unlimited 3, the Switch is also getting The Trail...


Nintendo Download: Fear Effect Sedna

If you had told me years ago that the "controversial" Fear Effect series would one day be resurrected and make its way onto a Nintendo platform, you would have sounded crazy. But here we are, as Fear Effect Sedna is arriving on Ma...


Nintendo Download: Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus

Nintendo is really surprising me as we enter an era where games aren't taking that long to be ported or straight-up designed for the Switch. While a lot of its early offerings were ports of one, two, or three-year old games we're now g...


Dark Horse's Mario encyclopedia is coming West in October

After finding success with the Legend of Zelda series, Dark Horse decided to take a crack at the equally iconic Super Mario Bros. series in 2015 with the Super Mario Bros. Encyclopedia. This previously Japanese exclusive book chronicled all...


Nintendo Download: Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2

Review: Playbudz Grip Extenders

Official controllers come in one shape, and one size. Most of us either aren't bothered by the fact, or have learned to work around it over the years. Being in the former camp, I've never really considered the need to help extend the grip o...


Nintendo Download: Aegis Defenders

It's kind of an exciting week when it comes to indies and ports on the Switch, as a few good ones are crossing over. You'll be able to pick up Owlboy on February 13, and this week Dragon Quest Builders, Aegis Defenders,  NeoGeo 20...


My Nintendo just added a heap of new discounts

I'm kind of tired of looking at the "coming soon" Nintendo Switch section of the My Nintendo website. It's been nearly a year at this point, and should have helped bolster its launch from day one. Alas we're all kind of just letting our coi...


Nintendo Download: SteamWorld Dig

The Switch begins anew with another cycle of port catching up. This week we're getting Crypt of the Necrodancer, Dandara, Night in the Woods, NeoGeo Samurai Shodown II, 3D MiniGolf, Black Hole, Darkside Detective, 10 Second Run Returns, Aet...


Minecraft on Switch and Wii U gets some Microsoft skin packs

Minecraft still has not received the "Better Together" update on Nintendo platforms, but we're getting a step closer to that reality. Launched just today, people with a Switch or Wii U can dress up their characters as Master Chief from Halo...


My Nintendo has some new games up for grabs!

An update to My Nintendo is such a rare occurrence that I tend to forget the service exists. I don't think I've logged in since the last time I wrote about games being offered and that was only to grab screenshot. I suppose today marks the ...


Nintendo Download: Celeste

The Switch might be missing out on a few big games like Monster Hunter World and Dragon Ball FighterZ, but it has at least one trick up its sleeve. Celeste is hitting the system today, as well as Tales of the Tiny Planet, Earth Wa...


Nintendo Download: Kirby Battle Royale

It's kind of a big week for the Switch, as it's getting several high-profile indies, a Kirby game, and a new Square Enix RPG. Lost Sphear will debut on January 23, but today you'll get Darkest Dungeon, Ambition of the Slimes, NeoGeo Po...


Can we just get Mario Maker on Switch now?

Nintendo snuck out a brief Direct the other day and among the announcements, we saw a few more Wii U titles making their way to the Switch. Both Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and Hyrule Warriors will soon be playable on the Switch wi...


The Switch's lifetime sales in France surpass the Wii U

Earlier this week, the Switch beat out the Wii U's lifetime sales in Japan. The same Switch that's been out for 10 months against the Wii U's five plus years. That same milestone is now happening all over the world it seems, as the Switch j...


Nintendo Download: Dragon Quest Builders demo

We just had a pretty huge "Mini" Direct this morning, but none of it is actually coming to fruition today outside of a Dragon Quest Builders demo on Switch. Nintendo is peddling a Pokken DX "Battle Pack" (Season Pass), but the first pa...


This amazing archive lets you revisit Miiverse

Miiverse may be dead but it's not gone. Nintendo shut down its bizarre and lovable social network service last month, and in the lead-up to that closure, app developer Drastic Actions got to work archiving as much content as possible for po...
