Is Bayonetta “Killing” Smash Bros?

by Todd Blackon February 23, 2018
What’s this about Bayonetta in Smash Bros 4? Do people not like her? Bayonetta holds an interesting place in Nintendo fanboy and fangirl hearts. She was a character born on a rival console, but then brought to the Wii U for its sequel when said rivals didn’t want to make another one. Players liked her […]

Bayonetta Creator Defends Third Title Being On Switch

by Todd Blackon February 16, 2018
Why is Bayonetta 3 only going to be on Nintendo Switch? Couldn’t they have gone multiplatform with it? Bayonetta is a very interesting franchise development wise. Its first title was highly successful on PS3 and Xbox 360. However, neither Microsoft nor Sony would bring a sequel to their systems. So, Nintendo stepped in, and Bayonetta […]

Radiant Historia Getting A 3DS Remake

by Peter Paltridgeon March 21, 2017
Did you miss Radiant Historia on the DS? If you did, don’t blame yourself…the title had a short print run and remains an underappreciated classic.

by Peter Paltridgeon November 22, 2016
Even though Skyrim was prominently displayed as one of the games running on Nintendo’s Switch during their introductory trailer, Bethesda has yet to officially announce the game is coming to Switch. It is extremely obvious, however. Not only have we already seen Skyrim running on it (provided that wasn’t just digital trickery), but Todd Howard, […]

Release Date Confirmed For Dragon Quest 8 On 3DS

by Peter Paltridgeon November 3, 2016
A few months ago we had to report that the portable version of Dragon Quest 8 had been sidelined due to the release of Dragon Quest 7 being so close to it. The move was understandable, but disappointing nonetheless. Since then we haven’t known when Nintendo planned to put the game out…until today. The company […]

Nintendo revealed its newest console this morning: the Nintendo Switch. Proving the rumors true, the Switch is a combination home console and handheld that features a detachable screen, and controllers that detach from that. A lineup of previously unrevealed games was shown on various screens while the usual gang of models frolicked and pretended to […]

(Please read the Roman numerals correctly: we’re talking about 8, which will be released in 2017, not 7, which just came out right now.) 7 used MIDI […]
