Okami HD Launches for Nintendo Switch this July

In this week's Nintendo Direct, a number of third party titles and ports were announced for Switch, many on a Nintendo platform for the first time. One such title that is no stranger to Nintendo platforms is Okami HD, a remaster of Okami which saw a Wii release in 2008. The game was beautiful and artistic when it first launched and is only aided by modern HD visuals. It should be noted that the game appears to be an eSh...

Luigi's Mansion, Mario and Luigi, and Warioware are Coming to 3DS

When Nintendo said that 3DS would keep getting support, nobody really believed them. After all, the same thing was said about the Gameboy Advance when the DS released and we all know what happened there. Yet, here we are, a full year after the Switch's release and we've got three new big game announcements for 3DS for 2018 and 2019. Perhaps the most unexpected announcement for 3DS is a remake of Gamecube classic Luig...

My Nintendo Gold Coins can Now be Used on the Switch eShop

Remember My Nintendo? It's Nintendo's reward program that gives back to loyal fans in the form of rewards, games, and discounts on software. You probably haven't heard much about it recently because for the past year, despite being able to redeem Switch games for Gold Coins, there have been no Switch rewards to spend the coins on. In fact, if you purchased games at launch, your Gold Coins even expire this month. Thankf...

Down and Dirty - SteamWorld Dig Review

SteamWorld Dig has dug itself a nice following since it first released nearly five years ago, earning itself a sequel last year. This isn’t the first time the game has graced a Nintendo platform, launching as a 3DS exclusive and eventually making its way to the Wii U in 2014, nor is it the first time it has been on a handheld. However, the Switch release marks the first time it has come to a handheld in full HD. I...
