Latest Nintendo Switch Updates

Nintendo Switch is almost upon us, and Nintendo's marketing teams are working around the clock to get you hyped for their next console. Earlier this week, Nintendo Germany posted a brand new commercial that showed you the different places you can play Nintendo Switch, including the toilet. The commercial shows a bunch of excited young adults playing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on the go at a college campus through local WiFi and at a friend's house on the couch.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is only a little over a month away, and fans across the globe could not be more excited. YouTuber Jirard Khalil, who runs The One Video Gamer, recently spoke with Shigeru Miyamoto and Eiji Aonuma about Breath of the Wild and its game length. Although the game is massive and extremely difficult to 100% the game quickly, you could beat the game in approximately 15 minutes. According to Miyamoto and Aonuma, players can go straight to the final boss at the beginning of the game, although it would be nearly impossible to beat him. Aonuma suggests that fans upgrade Link first if they want to go straight to the final boss.

For well over a decade, China banned the sale of all outside video games and consoles in the region, but this policy was finally repealed in 2015. Since then, Microsoft and Sony have each launched their respective consoles in China, but sales have been abysmally low. Nintendo never gave Wii U an official release in China, and they haven't announced any plans to bring Switch to the region, but they may be poised to enter the market another way. Hit the jump for the details!

Eiji Aonuma, the producer of the Zelda series, has been extraordinarily busy this week with interviews and press conferences about the upcoming The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Several French news outlets have published interviews with Aonuma, in which he talked about all sorts of topics surrounding the game's art style, its massive overworld, and its inspirations. Above all else, one thing is clear about this new game: Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the most ambitious title that Nintendo has ever made.

Earlier this month, it was officially announced that Skyrim will be coming to the Nintendo Switch. It seems that Eiji Aonuma is a huge fan of the game, and it inspired some of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's exploration elements. Aonuma explained that every time you enter a new city in Skyrim, it is surprising because they are all different. He wanted to replicate this discovery in Breath of the Wild by allowing players to have the ability to climb everywhere and use the paraglider.

When The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's trailer was initially revealed, many fans were shocked to hear voice acting in a Zelda game, and many wondered what the extent of the voice acting would be. In a recent interview with Gamekult, series producer Eiji Aonuma explained that every cutscene in Breath of the Wild will feature full voice acting. Despite the huge amount of voice acting, though, players will only be able to listen to Breath of the Wild in their native language. Unlike other games that feature a dual audio option (English and Japanese), the latest Zelda game will not have that feature implemented.

The glory days of Rare-designed 3D platformers are long gone, but Playtonic Games is looking to revive them with Banjo-Kazooie spiritual successor Yooka-Laylee. The highly-anticipated debut from Playtonic launches on April 11th, and in addition to its main campaign, it has eight different multiplayer modes. If that's not enough, Playtonic has revealed that Yooka-Laylee will also have a co-op mode for the main campaign. Hit the jump for the details!

Eiji Aonuma has been hinting at a lot of additions to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild lately, such as the game having multiple endings. Now he has revealed that even though Link can tame wild horses in the game, the iconic Epona will be making an appearance as well. Aonuma wouldn't go into specifics: "she's in Breath of the Wild, but I do not want to reveal details about how to find her, or what that means." While this is cryptic information, he's probably just trying to protect fans from possible spoilers for the game.

What do you guys think of this? Do you think Epona will have the best stats out of all the horses in the game? Let us know your thoughts in the comments after the jump!

There have been a few reports of GameStop cancelling people's preorders of the Nintendo Switch, as well as its most anticipated title, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Stock for the console and the game has been thin ever since their reveal, and copies of either are hard to come by, as most retailers have closed preorders because of the supply constraints. However, it seems that even fans who have already placed their orders may have some difficulties receiving the console.

Following the Nintendo Switch presentation, many third party developers expressed interest in developing games for Nintendo's newest console. Capcom was one of many developers who praised the Nintendo Switch and stated that they had interest in bringing their games to the console. Despite their excitement, the Resident Evil series does not appear to be one of them. According to Producer Masachika Kawata, there are no plans to bring Resident Evil to Nintendo Switch anytime soon.

Nintendo's Switch presentation blew the lid off of their highly anticipated console with trailers galore and sneak peeks at upcoming games. However, there is a possibility that Nintendo may be keeping their mouths shut on a couple of other unannounced games for Nintendo Switch. According to some information received by Source Gaming, Super Smash Bros. Melee is coming to Nintendo Switch through a new GameCube Virtual Console and a port of Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS is also in the works. Source Gaming states that the new port of Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS will include new content such as new characters.

Nintendo is trying their best to break the modern conventions of The Legend of Zelda series with their newest installment, Breath of the Wild. We've seen a ton of new things in this game so far that we haven't seen previously in the series, but producer Eiji Aonuma teased one tidbit that may surprise some: the possibility of multiple endings. Aonuma said, "There is an alternate ending if you meet certain criteria. If you do a few things, you may see a different ending." While it's unclear how the possible endings will be unlocked for now, it is an interesting addition to a Zelda title. We'll have to wait until the game releases to find out just what this alternate ending could be, so all we can do for now is speculate.

What do you guys think of this? What sort of criteria do you think is required for a second ending? Do you think there will be more than just two? Let us know your thoughts in the comments after the jump!

During Nintendo's Switch presentation, the gaming giant announced that over 80 games are in development for their new system. To help show the amount of games coming over the next year, Nintendo released a graphic that lists the release date of highly-anticipated titles. However, they failed to list a lot of the games that many fans are excited for. That's why one dedicated fan added a lot more to the image, showing every single game that's been announced so far. You can take a look at both graphics after the jump!

While the Nintendo Switch already has a number of new titles announced for it, Nintendo's next console will also be getting at least one port of a Wii U gem in the form of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. We've already heard about some of its new features, chief among them the revamped Battle Mode, but thus far we've only seen two of these modes in action. A recent PR image sent out by Nintendo, however, reveals that there are planned to be at least five, and the image hints at what exactly each mode will entail.
