Launched in 2014, The Elder Scrolls Online is an MMORPG based on The Elder Scrolls series. The game has made its way onto the PC, Xbox One, and the PS4, and so some are rightfully wondering if it could eventually find its way onto the Nintendo Switch as well. The bad news is that it won’t.
If you want to play multiplayer games on your Nintendo Switch, then you will need a subscription to the Switch’s Online service, that much is obvious. However it seems that there has been some confusion about that with regards to Blizzard’s Diablo 3, where Blizzard has since clarified some details.
Stardew Valley is essentially a digital game, but for those who really love the game and wouldn’t mind getting their hands on a physical copy of the game, Japanese publisher Oizumi Amuzio has announced that they will releasing a physical Collector’s Edition version of the game that will come bundled with certain goodies.
Many have praised the Nintendo Switch’s Joy-Cons which despite looking pretty small, actually turn out to be quite pleasant to use. However we imagine that there are probably many gamers who can appreciate larger gamepads, like the Switch’s Pro Controller for instance. If that’s your preferred method of gaming, then PowerA might have something for you.
For those who have visited Tokyo or Osaka, you might be familiar with or have at least seen people dressed in costumes from the Mario franchise driving around the streets in go karts. You could almost be fooled into thinking that this was some kind of official Mario Kart service provided by Nintendo, but it isn’t.
So we know that Diablo 3 is coming out for the Nintendo Switch, that much was confirmed a couple of months ago. For those who have yet to buy a Switch and Diablo 3 is the game that has finally convinced them to, then you might be interested to learn that Nintendo has since announced the Diablo 3: Eternal Collection Bundle.
While the Nintendo Switch has proven to be a commercial success for Nintendo, it seems that there are still quite a few big named games out there that have yet to be released on the console. We’re not sure why, but if we had to guess, hardware limitations could be one of them as the Switch isn’t exactly the most powerful console compared to the PS4 or Xbox One.
The Nintendo Game Boy is one of most classic handheld gaming consoles of all time, and it is one of the more immediately recognizable devices. However Nintendo’s focus seems to be on the DS series of handhelds these days, but could the company be thinking of perhaps reviving the Game Boy somehow?
As apps grow and update over time, it can start to become bloated with features that are no longer used, which also means that the app will start to take up more space than it should. This seems to be the case with Nintendo’s Fire Emblem Heroes whose continuous updates with new heroes and maps has increased the app’s overall footprint on mobile devices.
The Nintendo Switch is a little over a year old. While it isn’t as powerful compared to current-gen consoles like the PS4 Pro or the Xbox One X that offer 4K gameplay, it has managed to win over the hearts (and wallets) of many a gamer thanks to its unique playstyle and also the light-hearted games that come with it.
For years if you go to Tokyo, Japan, you will have the opportunity to dress up like popular Mario-themed characters and drive racing karts throughout the city. On first glance it looks like Mario Kart, but upon closer inspection it’s actually known as MariCar. It’s actually been amazing how long the company has been getting away with it, but unfortunately it has come to an end.
If you search for things to do in Tokyo, Japan, you may find many lists that mention suiting up as Mario, Peach or Luigi and driving go-karts on the busy streets of the city as one of the things worth experiencing. Nintendo doesn’t seem to happy about the use of its intellectual property by rent-a-kart services and has been trying to put an end to these tours.
One of the benefits of subscribing to Nintendo’s Switch Online service is cloud saves. This means that unlike previously where game saves would be stored locally on a device, which means that if you get a new console you couldn’t just pick up where you left off, cloud saves means that you can recover your saved game files when you get a new console.
Safe to say that many gamers are looking forward to the release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which is currently set for a release at the end of the year. We can also imagine that the game will no doubt help to spur the sales of Nintendo Switch consoles and convince gamers to get on board.
