Despite the fact that the Nintendo Switch is selling like crazy amid lockdown, and the recent rumors that Nintendo could release remastered version of its older Super Mario games, the fact of the matter is that the list of announced games is running pretty thin. In fact, outside of games like Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition that’s coming later this month and Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics that should launch in June, nothing else even has an official release date. Be that as it may, there’s apparently more games coming that we don’t know about.
Of course, Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 and Metroid Prime 4 are still coming, but they are still at least a year out. There are other titles, though, that we’ve learned could materialize out of nowhere. The work comes from none other than Nintendo President, Suntaro Furukawa, during an investor Q&A call earlier this week. During that call, Furukawa was adamant that the company has “games that are scheduled to release during this period...
I know that the focal point of Luigi’s Mansion 3 is the storyline, but the multiplayer modes are fun too, and that’s why we’re excited to tell you that the game’s second DLC pack has gone live some three months early, and it brings new content to ScreamPark and ScareScraper multiplayer modes.
As Nintendo explains the new content on Twitter:
“Don the new Cap’n Weegee costume in ScareScaper mode or check out all sorts of new & wacky ScreamPark additions. Luigi’s Mansion 3 DLC Parts 1 & 2 are available now”
This is actually a big surprise because the DLC was supposed to go live in July. But, let’s be honest, Nintendo couldn’t have picked a better time to launch it. It’s also on par with the last DLC, which was released a couple of months early as well with the same type of multiplayer content.
If you haven’t checked out the multiplayer mode yet, you...
The Witch of the Woods update for Smite has gone live on PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Mac. Along with some balance changes and a number of bug fixes, Baba Yaga has finally landed on the battleground.
The #WitchOfTheWoods Update is live on all platforms!!Try out the newest God on the Battleground: Baba Yaga!See what all has come with this update: https://t.co/jMamPytL93 pic.twitter.com/2i2tUrzb5u— SMITE (@SMITEGame) April 21, 2020
According to Smite’s developers, Baba Yaga was added to the game due to overwhelming community support after being the most highly requested god in Smite history. In speaking about Baba Yaga’s arrival, Svetlan Lisik, the Russian Translation & Community Specialist at Hi-Rez Studios, said:
“Baba Yaga is certainly one of the most prominent characters in Slavic folklore. It’s amazing how excited about Baba Yaga’s release all the community is, and especially Russian-speaking fans. I'm glad to see that the SMITE Goddess they anticipated the most...
Crytek has finally confirmed that Crysis Remastered is, in fact, happening, and it did so by releasing the teaser trailer you see above.
The trailer shows very little in term of game footage – just a few seconds to be exact. We do get a quick glimpse of Nomad in the jungle, which is enough to get the blood pumping a bit. We also have confirmation that Crysis Remastered is coming to PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch, the latter of which represents the first time a Crysis game has ever been on a Nintendo System.
The trailer comes just one day after some sketchy looking leaks via the official Crysis page indicated that an announcement of the remaster could be imminent. Our entire team of journalists thought it was a bunch of malarkey, but as it turns out we were wrong. The most surprising part of all this has to be the fact that it’s also going to launch...
Nintendo just rolled out Switch Firmware 10.0.0, and with it came button remapping and the much-needed ability to transfer games from internal storage to SD card. There was a little something hidden away inside that firmware update, and it was found by a seasoned dataminer known as Mike Heskin who found preliminary support for a new model codenamed “nx-abcd.”
Now, that codename does sound about as far from legitimate as possible, but it’s actually inline with previous codenames for various switch devices, including nx-abca, nx-abca2, nx-abcb, and nx-abcc. Nintendo has already gone on record and said that the Nintendo Switch is only halfway through its life cycle and isn’t considered with the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 4, so this is a little strange, but we could be looking at a more premium model – one with dual displays, if you can believe that.
In Heskin’s tweet above, he mentions the new DRAM profiles, but the most important part is the...
Nintendo has started rolling out a major firmware update to the Switch and Switch lite consoles, and the most important takeaway is that you’ll now be able to transfer software data (game installs) between the internal memory and the SD card – something that once required you to delete the game and redownload to accomplish.
On top of this, there’s now the option to remap the controller buttons, something that is ideal for a number of games, a new section for Play Activity Settings, some new icons for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and a number of stability improvements.
Here are the official patch notes for Switch Firmware Version 10.0.0:

We recently told you that Bioshock, XCOM2, and Borderlands Legendary Collections were coming to the Nintendo Switch, and now we’ve learned that The Borderlands Collection won’t suffer from art asset degradation and will be able to run at 1080P while delivering 30 FPS with ease. Even better yet, the developer has added in motion controls specific to the Nintendo Switch console.
Word of this comes direction from Turn Me Up, one of the companies involved in porting Borderlands Legendary Collection over to the Nintendo Switch.
“We worked tirelessly with 2K and Gearbox to bring these ravenously requested classics to Switch in full 1080p, at 30 FPS and with no downgrading of art assets. On top of that, we included all the trimmings of the GOTY releases — and newly developed motion controls specifically built for this incredible collection.”
This is actually a huge development when you consider what happened to Borderlands 2 when it launched on the PS Vita way back when. At...
The Super Mario Series launched wat back in 1985 and this year marks Mario’s 35th anniversary. New reports coming from both VGC and Eurogamer, claim that Nintendo is going to celebrate by remastering and re-releasing most of Super Mario’s back catalog for the Nintendo Switch. This news was supposed to break during E3 2020 in June, but that has since bee canceled due to the COVID-19 outbreak, so Nintendo is reportedly considering a digital showcase instead.
If Nintendo is really going to follow through with this, and
we really hope they do, here’s a partial list of what we could get on Switch

A new announcement from 2K Games signals the arrival of
BioShock: The Collection, Borderlands: Legendary Collection, and XCOM2
Collection to the Nintendo Switch. The best part is that we won’t have to wait
very long, as all three collections are set to be released on May 29, 2020 –
just two months from now. Home isolation or not, Spring 2020 just got a little
Bioshock: The Collection on Nintendo Switch
When BioShock: The Collection lands on Nintendo Switch, it’ll
be a re-release of the trilogy that came to PC, PS4, and Xbox One back in 2017.
This trilogy includes the original BioShock, BioShock 2, and BioShock Infinite.
With all three games, we’ll also receive every single paid DLC that was ever
Borderlands Legendary Collection on Nintendo Switch
While BioShock comes to Switch as a re-release, Borderlands
Legendary Collection is an all-new buddle that was created specifically for the
Nintendo Switch. It comes with the original Borderlands, Borderlands 2,...
Some people ran out and bought up enough toilet paper to last for years, other people bought up as much food as they could get their hands on. As it turns out, a lot of people decided they needed a Nintendo Switch during this time of isolation and quarantine. So much so, in fact, that the Nintendo Switch is pretty much sold out everywhere. The Nintendo Switch light can still be found in some place, but even it is sold out on Amazon. The worst part is that Nintendo doesn’t know when more will make it into stores.
In a statement to Gamespot, Nintendo gave a very brief
“Nintendo Switch hardware is selling out at various retail locations in the U.S., but more systems are on the way. We apologize for any inconvenience.”
So, given the nature of what’s
going on in the world today, there’s probably a good chance that we won’t see
the Nintendo Switch arrive in retail outlets for some...
