On the 2nd of February, Nintendo’s third mobile application is set to release on both android and iOS platforms, but Fire Emblem is not the most popular of game series’.

Online Media Outlet, Kotaku have recently been in touch with Nintendo to ask them more about the Switch and what features it will have including the most important like Backwards compatibility, whether it will have online streaming apps, storage concerns and the fate of Miiverse. We of course know the answers to most of these questions but what we don’t know is why? Fortunately Kotaku got some of their questions answered to which you can see in the highlights below: Continue reading Nintendo Switch: No Netflix, No Backwards Compatibility, No Miiverse But Miis Do Return As Does USB External Hard Drives (A Kotaku Interview)

Zelda: Breath Of The Wild, Last Of The Wii U Games (From Nintendo)


In a recent interview with Polygon at the Nintendo Switch Launch Event in New York, Nintendo America President Reggie Fil-Aime has confirmed that Zelda: Breath Of The Wild will indeed be the last game developed by Nintendo for the Wii U and that there are no more games in development for it. He has stated that support for the console will still continue which includes selling it’s software in retail and online and that online services will NOT be ending any time soon as there is still a large community of gamers playing Mario Kart 8 Splatoon that Nintendo will continue to support.

Here is what Reggie had to say:

“From a first-party standpoint, there’s no new development coming after the launch of the legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” he said. “We really are at the end of life for Wii U.”

“From our standpoint, sunsetting is quite some time into the future. The ongoing activity from an online standpoint on [Mario] Kart and Splatoon is significant. We’re going to continue to support that.”

“Even today when I ask people, ‘so what was Wii U all about?,’ I get a wide variety of responses,” he said. “In managing the business, that’s just not good.”

Yooka-Laylee Multiplayer Trailer


The nice folks over at Playtonic Games have released a reveal trailer to show off the latest feature coming to Yooka-Laylee, Multiplayer. Up to 4 players can play 8 different mini games and can also be enjoyed in single player with the incentive of getting the high score. You can check out the video below.

However the trailer does not show off every multi-player aspect as Yooka-Laylee also has one other now known co-op, which allows a second player to take control of the Bee team and perform a number of actions that includes:

Stopping traps
Grabbing quills 

Collecting and storing butterflies

Blasting its Way to Blasting Agent, a Brand new Update!


When Ratalaika Games first brought Blasting Agent to both the Wii U and 3DS, some reviewers were divided. Some enjoyed the game, whereas others did not and some even believed it didn’t have enough content. Well that’s about to change!

It’s no secret that Blasting Agent is getting a new update, but the new update not only promises a new mode, (Boss Rush), but there will also be a new playable character and while she may not float like a Butterfly, she does however Sting like a Bee.

Breath of the Wild’s Timeline Placement is “Obvious” Once you Start Playing it


As with any newer Zelda game, as soon as we learn of one, fans often ask just where exactly does the new game fit in and while Aonuma may have been coy with his response in a Vice interview, he did share a little more than he usually does.

“I wouldn’t say that it obviously fits into any one part of the timeline, but if you play the game, you’ll be able to work out where it fits. As you probably saw in the trailer, the most recent trailer, there’s a woman’s voice, and she says: ‘The history of the royal family of Hyrule is also the history of the Calamity Ganon.’ And as you know, the Zelda series, up until now, is a history of repeated attacks by Ganon. So, there’s food for thought there. I don’t want to say anything more as I’d like players to work it out for themselves, to play the game and see what they think.”

The Nintendo Switch Could see the Release of Another Zelda Game


Not content enough with just telling IGN the version differences between Breath of the Wild for Wii U and Switch, Aonuma had something else to say that is far more important.

If its one thing gamers love most, it’s having their favourite series getting another instalment on a console/handheld they own and as far as Aonuma is concerned, it could happen as far as the Nintendo Switch is concerned, as he feels there is still more for him to do, what with him not being able to “fully use all of the new features of the system.” A statement he told IGN directly before following it up with: “There could be the possibility of another Zelda on Nintendo Switch.” Continue reading The Nintendo Switch Could see the Release of Another Zelda Game

(Rumour) Fire Emblem Fates: Revelation Could be a Nintendo Switch Release


With the Fire Emblem Direct schedule to kick off tomorrow, reported to give Fire Emblem Warriors the coverage it deserves, it seems there might be more Fire Emblem news in store for us.

While it would be great to hear about the mobile Fire Emblem game which is rumoured to be further along than the smartphone Animal Crossing game and a February release planned (remember it’s just a rumour), instead we might just learn of Nintendo’s plans to bring Fire Emblem Fates: Revelation to the Nintendo Switch.

The Miketendo Strip: Issue #12: Life After Metroid Pt.3


If you’ve come here seeking a laugh, you’ve come to the right place. I am avlongman9 and I am the illustrator of The Miketendo Strip! and today we have a new instalment for you to enjoy!

It is no secret that I love the Mass Effect games, so much so I wanted to do a Mass Effect strip, but our writer flat-out told me no, but he wasn’t finished. “Although there is no reason why we couldn’t find a way to incorporate Fem Sheep into our little Samus series.” So the two of us put our heads together and came up with the perfect way of bringing Fem Shep to Life after Metroid and you know what I am rather glad of the result. A result you can see for yourself right here: Continue reading The Miketendo Strip: Issue #12: Life After Metroid Pt.3

The Truth about Snipperclips (An SFB Games Creation)


If you have not seen Snipperclips in action yet, or even heard of it, it is a new puzzle game title you can expect to see release on the Nintendo Switch in March. A game that will see you: “Work together with friends to cut paper characters into new shapes and solve puzzles.” However Snipperclips is more than just that.

Despite Nintendo being credited as both the Publisher and Developer of Snipperclips, Snipperclips is not a Nintendo original IP. In fact Snipperclips isn’t even its original name. Now I’m not saying that Nintendo stole Snipperclips, but they did take it on from SFB Games. The very same SFB Games that consists of Tom and Adam Vian, who back in 2015 took to the stage during the GDC European Innovative Games Showcase to talk about their game Friendshapes: Continue reading The Truth about Snipperclips (An SFB Games Creation)
