Yakuza Producer doesn’t believe Switch is fitting for Yakuza Series, Xbox might be possible

Gematsu reports that in an interview with French gaming site, Yakuza series producer Daisuke Sato stated he doesn’t think the Nintendo Switch would be a fitting place for their Japanese action-RPG series. The Yakuza series has long been associated with the Playstation, ever since its debut on the Playstation 2 in 2005. Publisher Sega wasn’t however producing the Yakuza games solely for Sony in context of an exclusivity-deal but it rather worked its way on its own by the audience’s in

Fortnite season 5’s changes on the Nintendo Switch make it great for casual play

Fortnite has just entered its fifth season, which has brought big changes to the game and its map. Together, these two features make my casual play experiences much more entertaining. The Switch is a difficult platform to play intense shooters on, especially if you’re using the Joy-Cons. I’ve run my battery down multiple times playing Fortnite this way over the past few days. But casual play on Nintendo’s system is made much better by these two features, to the point where it may now be my favor

Splatoon 2 hackers are a big problem, and players demand help

Splatoon 2 players are finding the Nintendo Switch game increasingly overrun with hackers, who have figured out ways to not only claim an easy win, but also circumvent the game’s abuse report system. Their anger crested this week when a Splatoon 2 fan hacked the game’s leaderboards to display a message demanding that Nintendo install anti-cheat measures, or otherwise clean up the abuse of the multiplayer game. Someone hacked the Splatoon 2 X Rank Leaderboard in an effort to call out Nintendo's l

Nintendo Wants to Help Third-Party Publishers Add Cross-Play

Nintendo has won brownie points from players recently for its avid support of cross-platform play (cross-play). In addition to supporting cross-play between the Switch version of Minecraft and other systems, it also allows cross-play between Fortnite on Switch and Xbox One. Nintendo Switch fans appear to be delighted by the comments from Kimishima and Tanaka. This means that when a game is multi-platform it is quite likely that a Nintendo Switch player will have friends on other platforms who al

Warframe crossplay on Nintendo Switch? Developer says it’s ‘exploring all the options’

Nintendo Switch has been having a great few months - especially for its free-to-play players. Nintendo announced during E3 2018 that Epic Games would be bringing Fortnite to the console and Digital Extremes announced recently that it would do the same for its hit third-person shooter, Warframe. “Since announcing Warframe coming to the Switch, we've received an incredible amount of positive reception from both our community and Nintendo players,” says Digital Extremes Studio Manager Sheldon Carte

Nintendo Switch hardware patch reportedly found in brand new units

Nintendo has reportedly issued the first of its Nintendo Switch console units with at least one of the infamous Nvidia Tegra chip security flaws patched out. Patching these hardware security flaws – particularly the ‘f-g’ exploit – has been a long time coming for Nintendo following their exposure late last year. Before and since then, the homebrew (and, on a related note, piracy) scene exploded on the Switch console, thanks to the flaw. So, know that, while it’s not over yet, the days of homebre

Octopath Traveler is the magical RPG the Nintendo Switch needed

With Square Enix’s Octopath Traveler, we have the latest modern-day RPG whose creators hope to recapture a little of that 16-bit magic. Happily, Octopath Traveler comes a lot closer to realizing that dream than the hopelessly cluttered Lost Sphear and painfully clumsy Secret of Mana did. This dev team previously aimed for a similar effect with Bravely Default, but Traveler does a far better job of it, thanks to more advanced tech tricks like depth-of-field blur. Octopath Traveler comes together

Nintendo eShop fills up on Toads and travelers this week

This week’s Nintendo eShop proves us wrong, yet again, with at least two titles that you should be excited about. For JRPG fans, Square Enix has arrived; if you’re a puzzle-platformer gal, Nintendo says hi. Octopath Traveler is a Nintendo Switch exclusive courtesy of Square Enix, and its vaguely Final Fantasy 6-style vibes have caught our attention since it was announced in 2016. While the connections between them may be more limited than old-school Square Enix fans would like, there is no short

Octopath Traveler: How To Transfer Demo Game Progress

One of the coolest thing about the Nintendo Switch has been the pattern of demos and betas available ahead of launch for Nintendo exclusive titles. Octopath Traveler takes this trend a step further and actually allows players to take any progress made in the Prologue demo over to the full game when it launches in a few days. The Octopath Traveler Prologue demo gives players a chance to experience up to three hours of the title for free. To help incentivize picking up the full game, Nintendo and
