A lot of us are guilty about griping about how long games take to be released. However there are some of us who do not have the luxury of time, such as Chris Taylor who has been diagnosed with cancer and has been told that he is terminally ill, meaning that he does not have much time left in this world.
If you are traveling to China and plan on bringing your Nintendo Switch with you, you might want to take note that the console’s recently launched online service is blocked in the country. While China doesn’t seem to have issue with Nintendo or the Nintendo Switch, it seems that its online service is blocked.
One of the perks of signing up with the Nintendo Switch Online service is that it gives players access to a library of NES games. These NES games are run using an emulator and as it turns out, the emulator has already been hacked which means that in theory, gamers will be able to download their own NES ROMs onto it.
Earlier this year it was suggested that thanks to a trademark filing, Nintendo could be planning on launching an N64 Classic console. Given that we’ve seen Nintendo release Classic consoles for the past two years, it’s not a stretch to think that this year we might see a new one, and following the NES and SNES Classic, the N64 Classic makes sense.
The Nintendo Switch is a rather unique console which we reckon helped it achieve some of the success it’s had since its launch. Nintendo made some interesting decisions about the console, one of which is how voice chat is supported where users need to use a smartphone app in order to chat with friends.
If classic games are your thing, then you might be interested to learn that SEGA has announced that it will be bringing its SEGA Genesis Classics onto the Nintendo Switch. This collection was actually announced earlier this year and also launched for competing consoles like the PS4 and Xbox One, but now it looks like Switch gamers will be able to get in on the action.
Just like current online subscription services from Microsoft and Sony for the Xbox and PlayStation, users are welcome to subscribe to Nintendo’s Switch Online service on a month-to-month basis where they are free to cancel at anytime. However Nintendo doesn’t want you to do that and are hoping to lock you in.
Last week Nintendo unveiled new NES controllers designed for the Nintendo Switch. Now if you were thinking about getting your hands on them, you might want to take note of a caveat and that is apparently these controllers will only work with NES games. This was discovered in a disclaimer on Nintendo’s UK and Australian website.
For a while now Nintendo has been offering its customers gold coins via its My Nintendo program. These gold coins can be earned when you buy a game, and if you’re wondering what you can use it for, you might be interested to learn that Nintendo will actually allow gamers to pay for the Switch Online membership using those gold coins.
When Diablo 3 for the Nintendo Switch was officially announced, Blizzard did not mention when the game would be released, only that it would be released later this year. For those who are looking forward to its release, you’ll be pleased to learn that you won’t have to wait much longer because the game has been set for a release on the 2nd of November.
Controllers for gaming consoles have evolved over the years. While primarily designed to be an input device, over the years we’ve seen how companies have approached the design, where the focus is on making it more ergonomic based on the needs of modern games. However if you would love to see a throwback to the good old days, you’re in luck.
Last month it was rumored that Nintendo could be bringing New Super Mario Bros. U to the Nintendo Switch. Given that Nintendo brought Mario Kart 8 onto the Switch where it was previously launched as a Wii U exclusive, this idea didn’t seem too ridiculous. Turns out the rumors were right because that’s exactly what Nintendo has done.
Last week it was announced that Sid Meier’s Civilization 6 would be coming to the Nintendo Switch. For those who are curious about what the game will look like, you might be pleased to learn that during Nintendo’s recent Direct presentation, the company has since released a trailer for the upcoming game.
Last month when Nintendo released a new trailer for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate that introduced Castlevania characters to the upcoming game, the trailer started out with Luigi in a castle that seemed to be haunted. It was designed to represent Luigi’s Mansion series, or at least that’s what we thought.
