Pokkén Tournament DX is the latest in Nintendo Switch's fast-growing library of games, upgrading the Wii U's Pokkén Tournament with extra modes and five new Pokémon fighters. Head inside to read our review.

One of the biggest surprises from this month's Nintendo Direct was the unveiling of the Arcade Archives series on Switch. This series features classic Nintendo arcade games such as Vs. Super Mario Bros. being brought back to life, with a few updates, of course. Famitsu has recently revealed that Vs. Excitebike, Vs. Wrecking Crew, and Vs. Urban Champion are coming to this series as well. These games join Vs. Balloon Fight, Vs. Clu Clu Land, Vs. Ice Climber, and Vs. Pinball in the lineup.

Nier: Automata came out earlier this year and has become an overwhelming success, with the gaming receiving widespread critical acclaim and publisher Square Enix announcing a few days ago that it has shipped over 2 million units already. It sounds like that success is unlocking new doors for the franchise, as Square Enix has now posted a new hiring notice to its website that strongly suggests a new Nier project is on the way.

We're just under a month away from the release of Fire Emblem Warriors, but as is the standard these days, we've already gotten word about DLC coming for the title, as Koei Tecmo revealed a three pack lineup earlier today at the Tokyo Game Show. Later this year, we can expect to see DLC based on Fire Emblem Fates, whereas Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light and Fire Emblem Awakening packs will be available next year, in winter and spring, respectively. The packs will be available as standalone purchases (¥1400 each), or you can buy them as a pack for a discount of ¥3000. A special bride costume for Lucina is also included with the three pack.

Advertising for Super Mario Odyssey has started to spring up in Japan, showing off the scope of what we already know to be a very large game. One advert in particular, however, reveals something particularly interesting. A close look at the world map reveals what appears to be Isle Delfino from Super Mario Sunshine sitting not too far away from the Mushroom Kingdom.

To many of us, it seems like Nintendo has been in business forever. While this is an exaggeration of course, the truth is that Nintendo has been around for a long time—128 years, to be exact. On this day in 1889, Nintendo opened its doors as a playing card company. It wasn't until the 1960s and 70s that Nintendo started experimenting with arcade games, planting the seeds to grow into the video game giant it is today.

After the end of Life is Strange, Dontnod Entertainment started working on a game that has a drastically different tone and gameplay style called Vampyr. This game will take players back to the 1918 Spanish flu epidemic where Doctor Jonathan Reid has been turned into a vampire, and they will take control of Reid to prey on the people of London as he comes to terms with his new, undead form. Originally, we were supposed to get our hands on this game in just a couple of months. However, Dontnod has unfortunately pushed this gritty RPG back to a Spring 2018 release date.

Fire Emblem Warriors launches next week in Japan, so it's no surprise that the last members of the roster have been getting their reveals this week at Tokyo Game Show. We saw a leak early last week that looked to reveal the final five additions to the roster, and after Lyn, Celica, and (seemingly) Anna were confirmed, we've been waiting for the final two to officially join the fight. That wait is now over; at long last, Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light's Caeda and Tiki have been officially confirmed for Fire Emblem Warriors.

DOOM was revealed to be coming to Nintendo Switch last week, and during Tokyo Game Show 2017 this week gaming publications got their first chance to play the new port. Amidst a great deal of praise from a lot of places, there was one downside to the port that several noticed: the game, which runs at 60 frames-per-second on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, appeared to only be hitting 30 FPS on the Switch. Bethesda has now confirmed this to be the case, along with a few other details about the title.

Sonic fans were hyped when Shadow the Hedgehog was revealed as a playable DLC character for Sonic Forces a few days ago, and I saw a number of comments saying something to the effect of "now they just need to do Sonic Adventure 3!" Well, my friends, much as I hate to burst your bubble, it doesn't sound like that's going to happen anytime soon. Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka was recently asked about this very topic, and his comments indicate that SEGA has little to no interest in returning to Sonic Adventure right now.

Bethesda has shown a surprising amount of support for the Nintendo Switch, far more than they have for most consoles from the Big N. We've known about Skyrim coming since day one, and last week they announced that DOOM and the upcoming Wolfenstein II are also heading to the console-handheld hybrid. Now we're hearing that there's interest in bringing yet another Bethesda-published title to Nintendo's platform: The Evil Within 2. Nothing is confirmed yet, but given the man who's expressing interest, it could definitely happen.

Fire Emblem Warriors is less than a month away for most of the world, but Japan is getting it in a mere week, and that means it's time for Nintendo and Koei Tecmo to provide the final reveals for their upcoming title. During the Tokyo Game Show today, they've confirmed yet another character from that leak a few days back, and it's the second character that had gamers dubious: Celica. Fire Emblem Echoes' princess of Zofia will indeed be joining the fight!

Check out a new trailer and gameplay for Celica—as well as another tease for the game's roster—after the jump!

Ever since hackers discovered that a copy of NES Golf is present on every Nintendo Switch console this past weekend, countless individuals have been working to uncover why it was placed there and how Nintendo intended for gamers to be able to naturally access the easter egg. Now, some members of the community believed they've figured it out, but it's going to take a while for most of us to test it out. And that's because, if they are correct, this is no mere easter egg—it's a touching tribute to late Nintendo president Satoru Iwata himself.

The Nintendo Switch has delivered some solid gaming experiences in its first half-year on the market and in the homes and hands of consumers, but oddly enough, other applications such as video-streaming services like Netflix have been missing from the console's downloadable infrastructure. This situation is made ever weirder by a new rumor that says Netflix is "locked and loaded" for release on the console.
