Latest Nintendo Switch Updates

Fans of the No More Heroes franchise have been waiting a long time for the next chapter, and today it's finally here. While it isn't quite the No More Heroes 3 people were hoping for, Travis Strikes Again is an action-packed hack and slash adventure, and it could eventually pave the way for a true sequel. But how does it hold up as a standalone product? The reviews are starting to pour in, and it's a bit of a mixed bag.

The Power Rangers brand has been around for decades, and there have been quite a few video game adaptations over the years. Rumors have been swirling for a while now about the next Power Rangers game, and today it was officially unveiled.

We like to keep our eyes on up and coming indie games here at Gamnesia, and one I've been watching for years is YIIK: A Postmodern RPG. As an avid EarthBound fan, I was intrigued by the idea of a game partially inspired by the canceled EarthBound 64, but as I discovered when I went hands-on with a review copy of the game, YIIK is a solid and unique experience on its own. Acck Studio's latest game just launched on Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate just might be the hottest Nintendo Switch game yet. The beloved fighting franchise returned in December, and it dominated sales charts around the world for the rest of the year and into January. Nintendo of Europe declared it the fastest-selling Nintendo console game ever, and in Japan it has already sold over 2.6 million units. Thanks to recent comments from Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa, we now know that it's on pace to be the highest-selling Smash game ever.

The first two years of Nintendo Switch's life have featured quite a few enhanced ports of Wii U games. Nintendo's last home console was one of their least successful products ever, and its poor sales hurt the potential of quite a few good games. Their true potential has shined through on Switch, with games like Mario Kart 8 and Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze easily outpacing their Wii U numbers. It looks like that trend is continuing with Nintendo's latest re-release.

The year is 1999, and times are changing. Boy bands and RPGs are sweeping across the nation, the internet is connecting people around the world like never before, and rumors of an impending tech-fueled apocalypse have caused a spike in paranoia across the collective consciousness of humanity. Welcome to the world of YIIK: A Postmodern RPG. The second release from indie developer AckkStudios launches tomorrow, January 17th, and we were provided with an early Nintendo Switch code for review.

We've finally come full circle. When Nintendo first announced New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe (still a mouthful) for Nintendo Switch, they revealed a new item called the Super Crown that transforms Toadette into "Peachette." The internet began speculating what the Super Crown would do to other characters, such as Bowser, and soon the often-NSFW "Bowsette" was born. Now that the game is finally out on Nintendo Switch, modders have made her playable.

Those who subscribe to Nintendo Switch Online have access to a digital library of classic NES games, but thus far Nintendo hasn't expanded the library beyond that single console. That might be changing soon. Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime has been hinting at non-NES games coming to Nintendo Switch Online for some time now, and dataminers believe they've found evidence of Super Nintendo games on the way.

After teasing some farewell levels for Celeste late last year, one of the game's co-creators, Matt Thorson, took to Twitter yesterday to detail exactly what we can expect from the upcoming DLC. Coming free to all platforms, these additional levels will be leaving the iconic strawberries behind, but they will feature a few new items and mechanics to make up for it. There's no word on when this DLC will be available, though they unfortunately won't be ready in time for the game's first anniversary on January 25th.

As we reported in our recent Media Create sales coverage, Nintendo Switch has been selling like crazy since Black Friday. Holiday titles like Super Mario Party, Pokémon: Let's Go, and Super Smash Bros. are all huge hits, and evergreen titles like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe continue to perform admirably as well. All of this has boosted Switch sales to new heights in recent weeks, helping it achieve another milestone while gaining on a competitor with a massive head start.

According to the latest data, Smash has gone on to sell over half a million copies just since Christmas Eve.

Nintendo originally launched New Super Mario Bros. U on Wii U (just in case the name didn't give it away), but that platform's lack of success compelled Nintendo to give the platformer new life on Switch. The Deluxe version of the game comes with all DLC, some graphical upgrades, and some new playable characters and items. You can pick up the new and improved version tomorrow, and in the meantime, Nintendo has just released a new trailer to showcase its fun gameplay and newly-acquired portability on Switch.

Way back during E3 2017, Nintendo unveiled a new Yoshi game for Nintendo Switch with an intended launch window of 2018. Yoshi's next adventure would end up needing a little more time to cook before release, but it was eventually re-introduced as Yoshi's Crafted World with a new launch window of Spring 2019. Today, out of the blue, Nintendo just dropped the game's release date on Twitter.

Retro Studios made a name for themselves by transforming Nintendo's beloved Metroid series from 2D to 3D with the Prime Trilogy, then later moved on to revitalizing the Donkey Kong Country brand. However, since the release of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze in 2014, the studio has remained almost entirely silent. Whatever they have in the works is taking quite a while, and they're looking for more help to bring it to fruition.
