Latest Nintendo Updates

The trials and tribulations of Kickstarter-funded games continue. Developer Koji Igarashi initially planned to launch Castlevania spiritual successor Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night in 2017, but development hasn't exactly gone according to schedule. In September of 2016, Igarashi delayed the game all the way until 2018, but two years later it appears development is still unfinished.

Metroid is one of Nintendo's most iconic franchises, but it hasn't always received the same amount of attention from Nintendo over the years as games like Mario or Zelda. Samus' adventures have often had multi-year gaps between them as Nintendo struggles to decide what to do with the franchise. During these absent periods, many third-party developers have pitched ideas to Nintendo, hoping to have the chance to create their own Metroid experience. As it turns out, SEGA was once one of those interested parties.

It's been less than two weeks since the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct, but Nintendo is already back with another video presentation. This time, it's a look at many of the exciting independent games that are headed to Nintendo Switch in the coming months. The lineup spans numerous genres, including space shooter, puzzle, platformer, action-adventure and more. Perhaps the biggest reveal is that Neo Geo classic Windjammers is getting a sequel!

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is one of the most critically acclaimed and influential games of all time, inspiring countless adventures in the two decades since it released. So where does a game like that draw its own inspiration? Certainly past Zelda games like A Link to the Past set the foundation, but Ocarina of Time's action came from a less expected source. Nintendo turned to Ninja movies.

Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! are headed to Nintendo Switch this holiday season, giving new and old players alike the opportunity to visit an HD Kanto. Although these remakes are primarily sticking with Pokémon from the original games, they are spicing things up a bit with some modern mechanics, including Mega Evolution. The Pokémon Company has just released a new trailer, and this time it focuses on Mega Kangaskhan and Mega Gyarados.

The latest iteration of Super Smash Bros. is by far the biggest yet, with a roster that includes every character in franchise history and a lineup of stages with over 100 to choose from. All of those stages (and fighters) have been graphically improved as well. We recently shared a GameXplain video that compares returning Wii U stages to their Switch counterparts, and today we have a follow-up video that does the same for the classic Nintendo 64 stages.

Over the past two years, Overwatch has been one of the most popular games in the world, especially in the realm of eSports. The team-based hero shooter is available on most modern platforms, but not Nintendo Switch. Blizzard has previously stated that porting it to Switch would be a challenge, although they remain open-minded. With the announcement that Diablo III is coming to Switch, Blizzard has commented on the possibility once again, this time with a slightly more optimistic tone.

A while back there were rumblings and rumors of Diablo III potentially coming to Nintendo Switch, but nothing substantial emerged from the rumor mill and Blizzard remained silent. That silence will likely soon be ending. According to a quickly deleted article on Forbes, Diablo III is headed to Nintendo's hybrid console later this year. It looks like someone jumped the gun a little early on an official announcement.

Remember when people were arguing about whether Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was a new game or just a port? That debate's sure settled! Smash creator Masahiro Sakurai pulled back the curtains on the latest Smash at Nintendo's E3 Direct and the subsequent Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct. The newest iteration has been overhauled in numerous ways, including visual improvements to its more than 100 hundred stages. How do the new ones stack up against the old?

At E3 2018, Bethesda announced that The Elder Scrolls: Legends would be coming to home consoles in an effort to expand its audience. When speaking to Game Informer on this topic, Pete Hines of Bethesda confirmed the game would be cross-platform for all systems. However, the interviewer cut him off to make sure this applied to all consoles, as it had been assumed the PS4 would skip out on this feature. Hines made it a point to express how important this feature is to the game, and that Bethesda would not release it on any platform that will not support cross-play.

Rebooting a franchise can create a tricky situation when it comes to names. Should you stick with the name of the original, slap "Remake" at the end, or change things up? In the case of the historic demon shooter series Doom, Bethesda and id Software opted with the all-caps "DOOM" to distinguish this new iteration. Its success made a sequel a safe bet, but some fans were surprised by the decision to name it DOOM Eternal. What prompted this branding?

Back in May, The Pokémon Company and Game Freak surprised us by launching a previously unheard of game. Pokémon Quest started as a free-to-play Nintendo Switch exclusive, and a little over a month later it branched out to mobile devices as well. Now that it's been out for over a month, Sensor Tower has compiled some revenue data for analysis.

Creator Toby Fox has since stepped forward with some more official information, including details on a Collector's Edition!

FromSoftware's beloved (and feared) Dark Souls was remastered in HD and re-released back in May. Unfortunately, the Nintendo Switch version of the game apparently needed a little more time to cook. Publisher Bandai Namco initially announced that the Switch version had been delayed till Summer, but as the months passed and no updates were given, that window began to look unlikely. Today, we finally have our answer.
