Nintendo Download: Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin

We're so close to the next generation: but Nintendo doesn't care! For them, "next-gen" arrived three years ago, but truthfully, Nintendo kind of skates around the idea of "generations" anyway. They do what they do, they (generally) sell a t...

Nintendo Download: Pikmin 3 Deluxe

Pikmin is back! In Switch form! Alas, Pikmin 3 is the latest game to get an update on the Switch, as Nintendo tries to move every single game possible from the Wii U to their newer, successful system. Not "more successful," mind. Just ...

Nintendo Download: Pokemon Sword and Shield: The Crown Tundra

As we enter winter 2020 for real soon enough, the marquee game on the Switch this week is the very model of a winter wonderland: The Red Lantern. Of course while it is wondrous it's also treacherous, as you'll need to survive the cold with ...

Nintendo Download: Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit

It's a bit of an unconventional week for Nintendo's eShop, as the top game is actually a pseudo-app of sorts! The culprit is none other than Mario Kart Live: the hybrid augmented reality real-life kart toy that allows players to run a machi...

Nintendo Download: Super Mario 3D All-Stars

Last week, something weird happened: Nintendo spilled the beans about Hades arriving on Switch today. Shortly after sending out an email stating that it was coming soon, the company sent a retraction, stating that Hades was still ...
