Hardware Review: New Nintendo 2DS XL is a worthy handheld that ditches the third dimension

I was fortunate enough to be able to play around with the New 2DS XL for a little over a week now. Like many previous iterations that either added new functionality or trimmed the fat, the New 2DS XL is yet another redesign that mostly focuses on the latter. The big XL screen, the second analog nub for camera control, built-in amiibo scanning functionality and the upgraded faster processor and RAM are all standard features of the New 2DS XL. What was truly striking about the New 2DS XL was the b

Nintendo updates Splatoon 2 with patch 1.1.2; Details here

Nintendo's Splatoon 2 for the Switch hasn't even been out for a full week and it's already getting patch support. The update doesn't appear to be a massive update and aims to fix a few lingering issues. Patch 1.1.2 addresses a problem with players receiving gear from the SplatNet Gear Shop, with an unintended combination of gear abilities. As for weaponry, Nintendo fixed the number of points needed to fill the special gauge for several weapons. When you combine that issue with the problems with

Metroid: Samus Returns Amiibo Unlocks Exclusive Hard Mode DLC

It turns out that the Metroid Amiibo, just one of the two amiibo included in the pack, will feature an exclusive difficulty mode for Metroid: Samus Returns. According to Nintendo, the Metroid Amiibo will unlock a game mode going by the title of Fusion Mode. Limited to just the Fusion suit, the Fusion Mode will offer a new level of difficulty for players. Fusion Mode will only be available after the player has completed Metroid: Samus Returns, and only to amiibo owners. The Samus Amiibo that come

Skull and Bones Not Coming to Nintendo Switch

However, there’s now word that the upcoming Skull and Bones likely won’t make its way to the platform. However, Farren didn’t write off the idea of a Switch port entirely. However, a lack of third-party support when it comes to major multi-platform titles could be an issue in the long run. That being said, it’s entirely possible that Ubisoft’s decision not to port Skull and Bones to the Switch could be a technical issue. Skull and Bones is scheduled to launch in 2018 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox

Miitopia review

It’s surprising that it took Nintendo more than 10 years to come up with a game like Miitopia. Miitopia isn’t just a perfect showcase for those indelible customizable characters; it’s an engaging role-playing experience in its own right. Miitopia starts off with a familiar story: A heroic Mii is called upon by the citizens of the vast kingdom to save the land. Customizing Miis is the most obvious appeal of Miitopia, and that extends beyond simple character design. Thankfully, like its bouncy sta

Ubisoft’s Skull and Bones not likely to come to Nintendo Switch

Despite the fact that Nintendo's newest console, the Nintendo Switch, has sold nearly 5 million units and has become an instant hit, Ubisoft's upcoming game, Skull and Bones, may not be available on the hybrid console. Skull and Bones is a highly detailed, massive open-world pirate game, with a heavy focus on naval combat. Because of the game's vast openness and highly detailed world, Ubisoft doesn't think the Nintendo Switch would be able to handle it. We haven't really talked to much about the
