Splatoon 2 is Data Friendly (Uses around 150mb per 1 Hour of Gameplay)


A couple of hours ago, the final event of the Splatoon 2 Global Testfire came to an end and with it ended Switch owners chance at trying out the colourful shooter.

 

But while the event is over, yesterday we got to learn something rather important indeed and that is whilst Venture Beat’s Jeff Grubb partook in one of the testfire events, during an entire hour he played, he did so whilst tethering from his phone and come the end of the session, he only used 150mb.

IGN Talk With Zelda Devs About Breath Of The Wild


IGN recently caught up with Zelda: Breath of the Wild director Hidemaro Fujibayashi, technical director Takuhiro Dohta, and art director Satoru Takizawa to talk more indepth about the development and creation of the game which brought up some very interesting comments.  Some topics that were brushed on include starting out with a small team, the 2D prototype that represents the original Legend Of Zelda on NES, creating The Great Plateau first and building the map around it afterwards, How guardians came to be and more.

Below is a summary of the interview. You can find the full article at IGN here. I would also like to point out that most of the topics that were touched upon were also discussed in Nintendo’s three-part Making Of… Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild which you can check out in one of our previous posts (Video) The Making Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild.

ARMS & 1-2 Switch Won’t be Nintendo’s Only Unique IP for Nintendo Switch


As nice as it is to have new instalments to series’ that we love, sometimes it’s nice to get an all new IP and it seems that is the case as far as the Nintendo Switch is concerned.

 

During a recent interview with a Japanese magazine, Nintendo’s own Shinya Takahashi has confirmed that ARMS and 1-2 Switch will not be the only fresh new Nintendo’s own IP we can expect to see as far as the Switch is concerned as Nintendo are “preparing one new IP straight after the other,” and that there are some titles in development already.

[Video] Reggie Promises E3 to be a BIG Year for Switch & 3DS During An Interview with Fox


Last week, Fox Gamer conducted an interview with Nintendo of America President, Reggie Fils-Aimé and while the conversation may have been a little short, it doesn’t mean what was said is small in nature.

 

So what did they discuss to name a few things, Reggie spoke about a few things such as being a Nintendo fan boy, early reaction to Switch and even how the videogames industry is so unpredictable, but the biggest thing he had to say, was when he talked about E3 2017. Not only will this year’s E3 be another event where Nintendo go all out, but Nintendo won’t solely be focusing on titles for Switch, but also the 3DS as well and purely because we can, here is Reggie’s statement regarding E3 in full followed by ta video of the interview: Continue reading [Video] Reggie Promises E3 to be a BIG Year for Switch & 3DS During An Interview with Fox

[Feature] Splatoon 2 Global Testfire First Impressions


It is Friday the 24th of March and the Splatoon 2 Global Testfire is now underway, but with the first event over, it’s time to sit back, take stock of the event and air some first impressions of colourful sequel.

So what do I think of Splatoon 2 after having played it for nearly an hour? Well, I like it, the opening tutorial features clear instructions and smooth gameplay, but that smooth gameplay soon dissipated when I tried my hand engaging in Turf Wars. Granted that could have been down to my own internet connection, but being as so others were also experiencing issues similar to myself, it’s doubtful.

[Feature] Splatoon 2’s Totally Inkredible Wet Floor


As far as the Inkling world is concerned, Staying Fresh, inking everything in Turf Wars, keeping up with the latest trends and music are four majorly important factors.

 

In fact they’re all so equally important (especially music) that Splatoon 2 has quite a few musical acts and now the Squid Research Lab has taken it upon itself to tell us all about the musical act, Wet Floor! So we’ve taken it upon ourselves to share that information right here: Continue reading [Feature] Splatoon 2’s Totally Inkredible Wet Floor
