Nintendo Switch seems to love the rumor mill. There are currently two rumors going around regarding the little tablet that could. Imran Khan - senior editor for Game Informer - went on the "Kinda Funny Games" podcast on February 13th - a day before the Nintendo Direct. He dropped 2 very interesting hints, and who would know better than the editor to Game Informer?
1) Kingdom Hearts collection coming to the Nintendo Switch. While the Switch isn't powerful enough to run Kingdom Hearts 3, it can however run the other games in the franchise. Khan hinted that Square will be releasing the remasters to I.5, II.5, and II.8 Final Chapter to the Nintendo Switch. Could we possibly see Sora in Smash? Nintendo them self stated that the DLC characters are going to be characters we would never expect, and they proved that with the…Continue

This is just going to be my impressions of the demo that was released after the Nintendo Direct a few days ago. I put about 2 hours into this game, and while I didn't finish the demo. I did experience a lot of what the game has to offer. Here are my thoughts on that experience.
When this game was first announced at E3 2018, I had high hopes for it. Developed by Marvelous First Studios and published by Nintendo (US release only). There is a lot of talent behind this game like Armored Core series producer Kenichiro Tsukuda. Artist Yusuke Kozaki - who was a character designer on the newer Fire Emblem games and even worked on Xenoblade Chronicles 2. To round out the talent we have Shoji Kawamori who has done pretty much every single mecha anime ever released ever. He has done mecha designs on anime's like Macross,…Continue

After months of speculation, we finally got our direct, and what a great one it was. So lets get to the break down!
Super Mario Maker 2 is coming this June. They have added a lot of new building features to the game judging by the announcement trailer. They also added a new style based on Super Mario 3D Land. The first Mario Maker game featured Mario in construction gear, this one features both Mario and Luigi. Maybe a 2 player mode?
Also announced was a new action JRPG from Tokyo RPG Factory, creators of I Am Setsuna and Lost Spear. The new game, Oninaki, focuses on isometric combat and the ability to acquire and equip souls to change…Continue

I remember as a kid, many many moons ago, of just walking into a toy store or department store and purchasing a game. Give them money, they give me the game.
Years later, Collectors Edition became a thing. A more expensive version of the same game that came with added stuff. Some had maps, a steel case, a statue, maybe even an art book.
Now a days? You get this.
I want the game, but I also want the season pass, but this one comes with cool guns, and this one has a soundtrack!
The Editions Chart.
What the heck is this? These different editions range from $59.99 for the standard edition (which comes with the game!) to the the "Phoenix Shield Edition" which will run you $250 smackers. Plus its only available to the Ubisoft store and sold out in…
