RIP Satoru Iwata

Truly sad news today, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata has passed away.
He had a bile duct growth that he’d been previously treated for, but it seems it was worse than thought.
We’ll miss you Iwata.


Nintendo Switch: Everything I Can Remember To Put Into One Post

Nintendo Switch
So Nintendo unveiled their next system.

First off, Emily Rogers was right.

Now then, it’s a custom Nvidia Tegra powered hybrid system. The main component, the tablet-like screen, has detachable controllers (called Joy-Con controllers) on both sides. When playing on the go you can attach them and play it like a normal portable system. It also has a dock, that you slide the screen part into allowing you to play on your TV.

The detachable controllers can be slid into a separate accessory, which allows them to be used like a standard controller while playing in TV mode.
They can also be used separately, for multiplayer with each person using the left or right controller part, or if you want to just have one in each hand.

But you’re not forced to use that if you don’t want to, as there is also a Switch Pro Controller. Which, like the Wii U Pro Controller, is very similar to the XBox controller.

The system itself has a headphone jack (what a concept, eh Apple?), and uses game cards (another rumor that was proven right.)
On the controllers there are shoulder bumper L/R buttons and what are likely analog triggers (like on PS4/XB1) as well. The usual ABXY layout, + and – buttons, a home button, and what has been said to be a “share” button.
The dock is known to have at least two USB ports, and is also said to have a USB 3.0 port as well, an HDMI out, and of course a power port.

Games shown during the 3 minute reveal trailer included Zelda BotW, a new 3D Mario game, Skyrim Remastered, Splatoon (not known if it’s a new game or a port of the first, but the models appear to be more detailed), Mario Kart (looks like MK8 but with features from Double Dash?), a new Mario game, and an NBA game seemingly made by EA.

The list of developers supporting it is much larger than during Wii U’s unveiling, which is encouraging.

Here’s the list of developers from Nintendo PR

505 Games
Activision Publishing, Inc.
Audiokinetic Inc.
Autodesk, Inc.
BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc.
CRI Middleware Co., Ltd.
DeNA Co., Ltd.
Electronic Arts
Epic Games Inc.

Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc.

THQ Nordic
Tokyo RPG Factory Co., Ltd.

Bethesda alone is a big deal, as they were quite vocal about what was wrong with the Wii U.

The Switch is officially getting support for UE4, which isn’t a surprise considering it uses an Nvidia chipset.

So, now we wait for the full blowout unveiling which might end up being next year, as Nintendo apparently said they aren’t going to announce more details on games/specs this year. But it shouldn’t be long into 2017 before they go into more details, I’d imagine a January Direct would make sense. More third parties should be able to officially announce support for it now, though maybe not specific games.

The system was again confirmed for launch in March 2017, which will hopefully put the delay rumors to rest for good.

According to multiple sources, who got nearly everything right, the system will also be 100% region-free. Nintendo isn’t commenting on this or details yet though, as said above.

If you haven’t seen the reveal trailer, you can watch it below.

I’ve probably forgotten about 200 little details or got some shit wrong (shocker), but just let me know and I’ll update this post about a month later lol.

DS1889 Video: Bayonetta 2 Salt and Beyond Good & Evil 2 NX Exclusivity


I know some people will say “LOL u mad Nintard.” because they think I’m directly responding to a comment on someone else’s video.
But that’s not it, I’m responding to that mentality in general.
That Nintendo systems shouldn’t get third party games as exclusives.

This nonsense goes from indie racing games made by small devs like Shin’en to games like Bayonetta 2, and sometimes even getting to the point that people don’t want Nintendo systems even getting PORTS of third party games. Because, they say, the “shit Nintendo hardware will hold back the REAL versions.”

Your console war BS only makes YOU look like fools.

Michel Ancel Teases Beyond Good & Evil 2 on Instagram, Says It’s Now In Pre-Production

Endangered species – now saved – Game in pre-production – Stay tuned !

Now we wait to see if the rumors about it being an NX exclusive are true.



































And if they are we all Picard Facepalm as assholes send death threats and say they wish the game wasn’t being made because it’s not on THEIR platform, just like with Bayonetta 2.

New Details About The NES Classic Edition From Nintendo

CnUun99UsAENXtn.jpg large

REDMOND, Wash., Sept. 30, 2016 – The Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition console, anticipated to be one of the hottest gifts this holiday season, launches on Nov. 11 at a suggested retail price of only $59.99. The system includes 30 classic NES games like Super Mario Bros. 3, Metroid and The Legend of Zelda, plus a replica of the original NES controller that can also be used with NES Virtual Console games on the Wii or Wii U systems. And the games look sharper than ever using the included HDMI cable.

Maybe you’ve heard some of that before, but did you also know the system can be played in three different display modes? Or that games can be saved at any time using Suspend Points? Or how about the fact that all of the games’ original manuals can be viewed by scanning an on-screen QR Code with a smart device? Well, now you know! As the 1980s would say: “Tubular!”

“Be the cool dad, mom, aunt, uncle or best friend by gifting someone this holiday season with the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “This perfectly sized stocking stuffer could produce the same level of excitement that people felt over 30 years ago when they received the original NES as kids.”

Whether you have fond NES memories or want to introduce yourself and your kids to the video games that made Nintendo a household name, you’ll love the compact and attractive console. The hub of the NES Classic Edition is the HOME Menu, which can be used to access all 30 of the classic NES games. From here, you can adjust various settings or just dive into a game and start playing. To help locate games quickly and easily, you can press the Select button to sort by title, two-player games, recently played games, number of times played, release date and publisher.

To make sure every Goomba stomp looks as authentic as possible, all games can be played in three display modes. With the CRT filter, a scan-line effect is added to the screen to give everything that oh-so-retro look and feel. 4:3 is a sharp, clean look that adheres to the original aspect ratio used by the NES. And when playing in Pixel Perfect mode, every pixel is shown as a perfect square, providing the most accurate representation of the games as they were originally designed.

Retro gaming is defined in part by the search for save spots and the need to enter long passwords, but in practice, those tasks can definitely be a little … um … time consuming. While all aspects of the original 30 NES games are intact, Suspend Points have been added to streamline the experience of playing them. At any point during gameplay, simply press the console’s Reset button to return to the HOME Menu and save a Suspend Point that will let you pick up right where you left off. Up to four Suspend Points can be saved per game, so you can track the progress of multiple players or file away your favorite moments. This is great news for parents, as their kids won’t be able to use the “I’ll be there when I get to the next save point!” excuse any more when dinner is ready.

In a nice touch of physical meets digital, each of the game’s original manuals can be viewed online, opening a window to the glory days of unboxing an NES game and leafing through its beautifully illustrated booklet. All you have to do now is scan a QR Code from the HOME Menu to pull up the entire manual on your smart device or access the provided website to view the manual in all its nostalgic glory on your computer.

Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition is a little more than a month away! To learn more about the system while you wait for it to launch on Nov. 11 (and to view the list of all 30 playable NES games), visit
