8 Ways Splatoon 2 Stays Fresh On Nintendo Switch

My adoration for Splatoon 2 producer Hisashi Nogami’s quirky antics at the Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017 set aside, I can’t contain my excitement at the chance to unleash ink splatter hell once again in the sequel. It was my first stop at the Nintendo Switch UK Premiere, topping the leaderboards as I rallied our team to victory despite weary eyes. Since then, details have continued...

Super Mario Run Preview: Leaping With Pure Joy

There still isn’t anything that excites me as much as a new Super Mario game. It is with new hardware that Nintendo’s creative spark flickers brightest, and the portly Italian plumber’s Mushroom Kingdom adventures often act as a technical showpiece that let us marvel at their playful reinvention. Where Super Mario 64 had delivered a masterclass in 360-degree movement thanks to th...

Preview: Exploring A Tropical Paradise In Pokémon Sun And Moon

It has been 20 years since Pokémon first took over the world. That phenomenal journey has been one that has seen developer Game Freak embrace near constant evolution, with periodic hardware advancements allowing their creativity to remain unbridled in producing six meaningful generational leaps. In that time the Pokédex has grown to list 721 Pokémon and we have had the chance to explore six distin...

Restoring Colour To Prism Island In Paper Mario: Color Splash

It was a bad start for Paper Mario: Color Splash. Much like Metroid Prime: Federation Force, the Wii U exclusive was met with a negative backlash after it was revealed as part of a Nintendo Direct broadcast earlier this year. Longtime fans were so maddened that Nintendo would even dare to retread gameplay elements introduced in Paper Mario: Sticker Star, that it led to them penning a petition dema...

Adventure Is Reborn In The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild

It is the small touches that allow The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to captivate so readily. Squirrels scramble up trees, lizards scurry underfoot, and blades of grass gently sway with the wind as you energetically bound across Hyrule’s open plains. Here is an adventure that not only promises to be so grandiose in scale but breaks free from many of the conventions that have seemingly ...

Getting Started With Miitomo – Hands-on Preview

After an hour with Miitomo, I was completely sold on it. As with many others, when Kantan Games CEO Dr. Serkan Toto caught wind of the project and hinted that we should “expect the unexpected,” a free-to-start communication app certainly wasn’t the first thing that came to mind. Many raised an eyebrow, not least investors, who, after being heartily encouraged by Nintendo’s ...

Five Things We Love About The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes

We have been lucky enough to spend the last fortnight braving the perilous Drablands. The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes is now under a month away from launch, and so we thought it would be good to take the chance to share what we’ve been enjoying most in Link’s latest adventure. 1: The Wacky Story Tri Force Heroes serves up a zany story that, while not Pulitzer Prize material, sees...

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer preview

As the newest employee to be hired at Nook’s Homes, Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer presents a differentiated experience in which you can see what it is like to work under Nintendo’s “misunderstood” and business-minded raccoon. Shop-keep turned real-estate agent Tom Nook is now looking to give back to the neighbouring community through his latest business venture. As &...

Devil’s Third preview

It’s hard to know where to begin with Devil’s Third. As the first game from legendary Japanese game designer Tomonobu Itagaki since his sudden departure from Tecmo in 2008, the Dead or Alive creator would soon rally former Team Ninja developers when they similarly chose to step away from a company that they had long felt betrayed by. Forming Valhalla Game Studios, this first project wa...

Star Fox Zero preview

Blurred from the world’s prying eyes, a year has passed since Shigeru Miyamoto revealed that Star Fox would once again return to our screens. However, having long defended the Lylat system, Nintendo’s intrepid team of intergalactic mercenaries are now faced with a new challenge in being positioned as Wii U’s blockbuster release for the festive season. It’s clear as day that...

Animal Crossing x Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 2 preview

The Animal Crossing x Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 2 will arrive on the starting grid earlier than expected tomorrow, and, in a rather lengthy post, we’re giving you a handy breakdown of everything that awaits you! New Characters Villager Villager first wandered wide-eyed into our lives back on GameCube, when Animal Crossing’s addictive and cheerful nature first struck a chord in the west. Gr...
