The Nintendo Switch Hype is Real!


TheManCalledScott’s quick, early thoughts on the Nintendo Switch’s lineup.

Wizard Dojo

Before I get to my opinions of the Switch or its lineup of games, I just want to express how grateful I am that those horrible rumors of a Mario RPG/Rabbids crossover turned out to be false. The idea of Super Mario RPG FINALLY getting a sequel, only to have it defecated upon by the presence of the Rabbids (the most insufferable gaming mascots of all time) was just too much to bear. But it was all nothing but lies and deceit. This is cause for celebration.

Anyway, the Switch looks pretty incredible. I like the different play styles (console, handheld, and tabletop), and the controllers look quite nice. The “differing battery life” seemed like a vague answer to one of everyone’s biggest concerns, but I guess I can worry about that another time. The good definitely outweighed the bad with Nintendo’s presentation (though what, must I ask, was up with…

Nintendo Switch Confirmed! Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap


Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap is also confirmed for the Nintendo Switch with a March 2017 worldwide release and below you can find the official announcement:

It was hard to keep the secret, but finally we can spill those edamame beans…Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap is coming to the Nintendo Switch™ in 2017!

A few months ago Nintendo contacted us. A reunion was held in mushroom kingdom under a veil of absolute secrecy, where they suggested we could bring the game over to their upcoming platform. Needless to say it was a unique opportunity and as soon as we saw the system we knew we wanted to get the game on it. We started working on it and well, HERE WE ARE!

The game plays fantastic on the Nintendo Switch! It runs at a smooth 60 FPS, the screen and colors in handheld mode are amazing, and it plays just as well in full HD when docked. We can’t wait to show you more!

In the meanwhile, you can check out the official console page if you would like to know more about the Switch (available worldwide in March 2017!).

If you don’t plan to dock yourself on the Switch bandwagon just yet, rest assured, the game will also be coming to other platforms! We will announce them as well as the game release date as soon as we are ready… and we’ve got a bunch of other cool news coming.”

Nintendo Switch Confirmed! Rayman Legends & More Ubisoft Titles!


The presentation may be over, but news of Switch titles isn’t and now from Ubisoft, we have the official confirmation that Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition, Steep and Just Dance 2017 are also coming to the Switch:

SAN FRANCISCO — January 12, 2017:

Today, Ubisoft® announced that Just Dance® 2017, Rayman® Legends Definitive Edition and Steep™ will be part of the lineup for Nintendo Switch™.

Ubisoft has been at the forefront of the constantly evolving video game industry, leading development of exciting games for each new platform launch. For years, Ubisoft and Nintendo have been partnering to deliver original, creative and memorable entertainment gaming experiences.

Nintendo Switch combines the best of two worlds: mobile handheld and traditional at-home console gaming. This new console brings Ubisoft and its teams new opportunities to express their creativity, develop fresh ways to play and push the industry boundaries once again.

Ubisoft will initially be bringing Just Dance 2017, Rayman Legends Definitive Edition and Steep to the Nintendo Switch. We’re proud to be working closely with Nintendo on this new console, making sure players can enjoy great games on a device that shares the same philosophy these games: great accessibility and the ability to bring people together,” said Xavier Poix, Ubisoft managing director, French Studios. “These three games are just the beginning. We will share more about other exciting projects for the Nintendo Switch at a later date.”

Just Dance 2017:

Dancing with anyone – anywhere, anytime2017 will be the first Ubisoft game released for Nintendo Switch at launch. The chart-topping dance track, “How Deep Is Your Love” by Calvin Harris & Disciples, will be available as an exclusive track for Nintendo Switch owners via Just Dance Unlimited.* This hit song joins 40 tracks already available in the game, including “Sorry” by Justin Bieber, “Lean On” by Major Lazer Ft. MØ & DJ Snake, brand-new hits like “Don’t Wanna Know” by Maroon 5, party favorites like “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” by Beyoncé and classics like “Don’t Stop Me Now” by Queen. Nintendo Switch players will also have three months of free access to Just Dance Unlimited, the dance-on-demand subscription streaming service, which offers more than 200 additional songs and access to exclusive tracks, with new hit songs added all the time.

More accessible than ever, Just Dance 2017 can now be played anywhere, with up to six players at the same time using a Joy-Con™ controller or by using the Just Dance Controller app (which turns your smartphone into a controller).

Rayman Legends Definitive Edition:

Exploring Rayman’s legendary worldsPlayers’ all-time favorite, Rayman, is back in the game thanks to Rayman Legends Definitive Edition, the ultimate version of the critically acclaimed Rayman Legends created by Michel Ancel. This edition includes all the game’s traditional features, such as Kung Foot, plus some brand-new surprises. Nintendo’s history has included the Rayman brand since the franchise’s beginning, with titles such as Rayman® Advance for Game Boy Advance, Rayman® 2 The Great Escape for Nintendo 64 and Rayman Raving Rabbids® for the launch of Wii™.

Rayman, Globox and the Teensies are off wandering through an enchanted forest when they discover a mysterious tent filled with a series of captivating paintings. As they look more closely, they notice each painting seems to tell the story of a different mythical world. While focusing on a painting that shows a medieval land, they are suddenly sucked into the painting, entering the world, and the adventure begins. The gang must run, jump and fight their way through each world to save the day and discover the secrets of every legendary painting.

Steep:

Experiencing action sports in the beautiful open world of the AlpsIn Steep, players drop in to the Alps and ski, snowboard, wingsuit and paraglide through the game’s massive open world playground, filled with exhilarating activities and breathtaking views. Developed by Ubisoft Annecy, Steep is designed for a culture that’s all about sharing experiences with the world. Steep features seamless multiplayer, populating the world with players as they naturally explore the Alps. Players and friends across the globe can take on challenges together or compete with each other to snag the top spot on the leaderboard. The open world of Steep will be further enriched by the majestic slopes of Alaska in a free update available this year.*

How Deep Is Your Love” by Calvin Harris & Disciples is available through Just Dance Unlimited and can be accessed either via the free trial or by subscribing. The track will be available for all platforms later this year.
