The Nintendo Switch eShop is back in full swing this week with a fresh batch of new (but also not so new) games for the Switch, including New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe and Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition. Both games come to Switch on Jan. 11. New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe includes the Wii U platformer and its New Super Luigi U follow-up along with new content: Toadette and Nabbit are now playable characters. It’s one of the first great games of 2019, we said in our review of New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe. The Definitive Edition of Tales of Vesperia brings updated HD graphics, new music tracks, mini-games, bosses and unreleased costume content to Bandai Namco’s decade-old role-playing game. Beyond the Switch eShop, another Mario Bros. classic, Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story, makes the leap from Nintendo DS to Nintendo 3DS this week. Nintendo’s re-release of the 2009 game includes a new chapter, Bowser Jr.’s Journey, as part of its updated … [Read more...] about Nintendo eShop update delivers double the Mario Bros.

For a moment, it seemed inevitable that a half-dozen or so excellent games from arguably the most influential video game publisher ever would be relegated to the status of historical footnote. In 2012, Nintendo followed its mainstream motion-control phenomenon, the Wii, with a new strategy refocused around its old fan base. The software plan was inspired. Fantastic entries in iconic franchises like The Legend of Zelda, new franchises like Splatoon, and three new Mario games, emphasizing the series’ 2D platforming roots. The hardware plan? Not so good. Nintendo bound the catalog to its ill-fated Wii U, an on-the-go tablet console that counterintuitively couldn’t be used on the go. In the end, an abundance of great games couldn’t overcome the agony of playing on what feels like a screen ripped off the seat back of a cheap domestic flight. All the while, Nintendo quietly fashioned a lifeboat for all these precious creations. In 2017, the Nintendo Switch made good on the … [Read more...] about New Super Mario Bros.

With just over a month to go until its release, yesterday’s Nintendo Direct for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate gave us one of our biggest (and last) looks heading into the game’s launch with a deep dive into the confirmed Spirits Mode, many of the game’s new features, and of course, several new character reveals with Street Fighter‘s Ken and Pokemon‘s Incineroar (especially as the last confirmed characters to be joining the roster). Heading into this Direct though, anticipation among the Smash Bros. community was at an even higher level than normal given that just a week before, speculation and a rumors (such as the infamous “Grinch leak”) online pointed to what many fans hoped would be the inclusion of several long-running fan requested characters joining the game, such as Golden Sun‘s Isaac, Banjo-Kazooie, Super Mario RPG‘s Geno, and more. Ultimately (no pun intended), those expectations set by the rumors … [Read more...] about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: A Eulogy for the Characters That Didn’t Make It as Playable Fighters
Nintendo hit hard this week with a packed Nintendo Direct, but the biggest announcement that hit the hardest was the surprising reveal of what appears to be a brand new Smash Bros. game for the Nintendo Switch. Like pretty much anyone else watching the Direct, you can bet that I was HYPED for the fact that we’re getting a new Smash Bros., and my reaction to the announcement looked a lot like this: In the grand scheme of things, it was only a matter of time before we got some kind of confirmation that Super Smash Bros. would be coming to the Switch, but the fact that the announcement came from a seemingly ordinary Nintendo Direct in March (and not during the middle of E3 like many would have expected) made it that much more of a bombshell. While the teaser was brief, the fact that Super Smash Bros. is heading to Nintendo Switch — and especially that it is coming this year — should make Nintendo fans like myself very, very excited. Naturally, that … [Read more...] about Super Smash Bros. is Coming to the Switch: What Characters Can We Hope to See?
