[Interview] Visiting the Otherside for a Quick Flipping Death Q&A


Revealed near the end of last month, Flipping Death is one fine looking indie game headed to the Nintendo Switch and it is developed by none other than Zoink Games. We knew they were developing something for the Switch and had even seen a few teasers on Twitter, but we didn’t know what it was until the reveal. But the cat is out the bag and there was even a playable demo at PAX East and GDC, so we took it upon ourselves to arrange a little Flipping Death interview and now that we’ve got all the responses back, here’s everything Zoink Games’ Mikael Forslind was able to say about the upcoming title: Continue reading [Interview] Visiting the Otherside for a Quick Flipping Death Q&A

[Editorial] Should Nintendo bring their Mobile Titles to the Nintendo Switch?


Welcome to another Miketendo64 editorial and coming up on today’s piece, I’ll be arguing the Pros and Cons of Nintendo bringing their mobile titles to Nintendo Switch.

Now straight away a few of you may be thinking “why would they want to?” and you would be right to do so. I adore Super Mario Run and I even enjoy Fire Emblem Heroes and while they are a great mobile representation of the videogame series’ they represent, its a whole different ballgame if they were playable on one of Nintendo’s available home consoles. But then again, whilst they may not be the best representation, they would still act as great introduction titles for gamers who have never played a single Mario/Fire Emblem game. Titles that could get new to Nintendo/Switch owners interested in buying Super Mario Odyssey, Fire Emblem Warriors, Fire Emblem Switch and even the Mario/Rabbids game we’ve been hearing Ubisoft are working on.

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.

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.
