Eiji Aonuma, the producer of the Legend of Zelda series addressed fans this morning with an update video on the expected release of the Breath of the Wild sequel. Originally announced to launch later this year, Nintendo has now delayed the game into spring of 2023, in order to “make the game’s experience something special”.
Hot off the heels of Pokémon Legends: Arceus‘s rousing success, The Pokémon Company announced the next generation of mainline titles in their Pokémon Day presentation yesterday. Pokémon Scarlet and Violet will be the first in the series to harbor a completely seamless open world and roaming Pokémon. While Pokémon Sword and Shield only had the
I’m one of those “90s kids” that grew up with games of the 8-bit and 16-bit generations. I have a lot of nostalgia both for the art style and game design of that era, and I am absolutely LOVING the resurgence of retro throwbacks. The latest in this trend is Infernax, a monster-packed side-scrolling action
Ever since finally getting my hands on a PC Engine Duo (or, as it was known in the US, the TurboDuo), I’ve been on a bit of a shmup kick. The system is known for its absolute glut of space shooters, after all, so why not dive in and see what it actually had to
I’d like to think that given my long stint as a gamer, I have experienced everything that video games have to offer. However, there are times when I am made to realize that is not the case. Unfortunately, those experiences aren’t always positive, as is the case with The Good Life, an RPG adventure game
Everyone likes a good simple party game, you know? Something where explaining the mechanics are super easy to break down and get right to the fun part can really do wonders to liven up a gathering. I’ve probably lost count of how many times I’ve proposed firing up a session of some Jackbox game during
Man, it sure has been a bit of a wait for some fresh and traditional Travis Touchdown action. Over a decade, to be precise. It hasn’t been completely devoid of his presence, what with multiple ports of the original two Wii games as well as a side entry in the form of Travis Strikes Again
The Nintendo Direct announcements for E3 2021 showcased a wide variety of games, including new releases, upcoming DLCs, and remasters. Curious about what’s in store for this year and next? Let me give you the run down! Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC Character: Kazuya Mishima Joining the roster of fighters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
We recently had a chance to get hands-on time with Square Enix’s upcoming release of NEO: The World Ends with You. I never got around to playing the original The World Ends with You on the Nintendo DS back in 2007, but I was certainly aware of the game. Now, with the next game in
Yesterday, Nintendo tweeted out an announcement for their highly-anticipated Nintendo Direct event, scheduled for February 17th at 2:00pm PT/ 5:00 ET. The effect that the COVID-19 pandemic continues to have on the video game industry (games continuously being delayed) is very disheartening so as an active gamer, it was good to see some good news
The Animal Crossing train is still going strong for Nintendo, who unveiled the game’s update slated for this month earlier today.
When the original Atelier Ryza launched in the west a little over a year ago, it brought a few changes to the well-established series beloved by fans. With a more action-focused battle system, simplified alchemy systems, a stronger focus on plot, and a touch more fanservice than usual, Ryza went on to be one of
Pokémon fans, get your cameras ready! Earlier today, Nintendo announced on Twitter the release of New Pokémon Snap game, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. According to the tweet, players will “Venture from island to island on an ecological survey, building your Pokémon Photodex as you observe wild Pokémon in their natural habitat.” The Official YouTube
Blam! If it moves, kill it! Shoot everything on the screen! Blow them to smithereens! The space shooter genre is classic, and dates back almost to the beginning of video games. Probably because they were easy to make, with a black screen being “space,” but also because they were satisfying. See how long you can
Despite being newer to the series, I feel confident in saying that the Atelier games are a good representation of what modern JRPGs have become. As a person who grew up playing the classic entries of this genre, though, I’m not yet sure how I feel about the changes of modern entries. However, it was
I have some fond memories of playing the wide range of beat-’em-up games available in the arcades in the late 1980s and early 90s. Some of my favorites of the arcade era being the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade game, X-Men and The Simpsons. These all boiled down to being incredibly simple; just walk from
If you thought Nintendo was having a dry 2020, think again.
Memories can be an odd thing. We remember the games we grew up with, how they made us feel, and then years later, we can revisit them and find that sometimes, our memories have been altered by the flow of time. I can remember sitting in a small bedroom, my friends and I huddled together
Alongside Paper Mario: The Origami King gameplay, the “surprise game” teased for Nintendo Treehouse: Live today was revealed to be based on the popular toy franchise.
When crafting a puzzle game, there’s generally two ways a developer can go about it. The first is the simplest: put puzzles in front of the player and let them have at it. Little-to-no frills, nothing fancy, just good old-fashioned puzzle solving. And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with this; Picross DS is still one of
