(Rumour) Capcom are working on a VR Port of Resident Evil 7 for the Nintendo Switch (Nintendo Switchmas Day 3)


What’s that? There’s a rumour stating Capcom are bringing Resident Evil 7: Biohazard to the Nintendo Switch as a Virtual Reality title? Oh go on then, I suppose I can cover that.

Once again, the latest Nintendo Switch comes straight from OBE1plays, who has leaked a whole ton of Switch news this last week and when we covered his last reveal, (the Nintendo Switch doubling up as a VR console), we wrote he would elaborate one particular VR title that is being developed, in the next video he posted. Well that video (NINTENDO SWITCH EXCLUSIVE LEAK!!!!! NINTENDO SWITCHMAS DAY 3!!!!!!) has been posted and we’ll be sharing it here in this article for you to see it, but in case you don’t have the time to watch it, once again, you can find our summarised contents below: Continue reading (Rumour) Capcom are working on a VR Port of Resident Evil 7 for the Nintendo Switch (Nintendo Switchmas Day 3)

GAME Stores In UK Already Promoting Zelda: Breath Of The Wild & Nintendo Switch Pre-Orders


During a recent visit to the UK to visit my Grandparents. I found time to stop by a GAME Store in the midst of its post-christmas sales and was delighted to find an aisle dedicated to the upcoming Legend Of Zelda game Breath Of The Wild. Even though they were only display boxes and not the final official box art. I was half tempted to ask if I could have one. The back of the box lists the features that you can expect from the game including amiibo support, the changes of weather and climates and that you must gather different foods and cook them to regain health.

Regardless of the rumours that we have been hearing that Zelda: Breath Of The Wild will no longer be launching in March, an advertisement in the store still states a March 2017 release, at least for the Wii U version.

It is nice to see a relatively strong advertising campaign for this game even if it is mainly directed towards Wii U, which still shows that Breath Of The Wild is coming to the console and is the last Nintendo 1st party game for the System.

On another note, GAME has already started advertising for the Nintendo Switch as well. The Ad entices you to pre-order the Switch console now and you could be in for a chance to win a free Switch and a Launch game. You will be required to give a £20 deposit but who doesn’t like to a chance to win a free games console?

All that is left now is the Switch Presentation on Jan 12th which will shed more details on price and most importantly, what games you will be able to play on it at launch. Less than to weeks to go now!

Pokémon Sun and Moon Review


Like all installments that preceded them, Pokémon Sun and Moon are excellent titles and mandatory additions to the collections of newcomers and veterans alike. They may not be the best versions the property has ever produced, but their technical updates, gameplay enhancements, and online features are more than sufficient to turn them into the definitive games of the saga, at least until their successors come out in a few years.

Sun and Moon may not be the best Pokémon versions ever produced, but technical updates, a relaxed aura, and gameplay enhancements make them quite unique

sun_moon3With two decades marked by record-setting sales and supported by an armada of fans of all ages and backgrounds, the Pokémon franchise reaches its seventh generation with the arrival of Sun and Moon. Like all versions that preceded them, the two installments embrace the philosophy that states things which are not broken do not require any sort of fixing. Therefore, they preserve the series’ universally known trope of assembling a Pokémon team, and catching as many monsters as possible, in order to become the top trainer of a specific region. At the same time, though, Sun and Moon take some noticeable steps towards the elimination, or the improvement, of some of the franchise’s established quirks.

The games’ most considerable trait, perhaps due to the fact…

Legend of Zelda 8-Bit Link Amiibo Review


Kuribo examines the new Retro Link Amiibo in his latest review? Is this 8-Bit style worth owning?

NintendoFigures.com

While it may not seem like all that long of a hiatus, not being able to work on the site has been very difficult the last week or so.  Moving has proven to be pretty stressful and time consuming but I am hoping the worst is over and I can get back to regularly updating the site now.  I want to get back into the swing of things by taking a look at an Amiibo that I think a lot of people have been interested in and some people may be having trouble finding at retail.  I don’t expect that this Retro Link Amiibo will be rare overall but I know I had to search a couple of retailers to find this Amiibo which was surprising in the current Amiibo climate.

8-bit retro link amiibo legend of zeldaBox – Much like the Ocarina of Time Link I reviewed, I think packaging looks pretty good on this…
