    The Witcher 3 is coming to the Nintendo Switch

    CD Projekt Red’s open-world classic The Witcher 3 is going portable. Today, Nintendo revealed that the game, which first launched in 2015, will be available on the Switch later this year. It’ll be a “complete edition,” so players will get access to the base game as well as the handful of subsequent expansions. The Witcher 3 joins a growing list of older games that are finding new life on Nintendo’s portable / console hybrid, including the likes of Skyrim, LA Noire, Dark Souls, Diablo 3, and, most recently, Dragon’s Dogma.

    Nintendo Switch will soon pass the N64 in lifetime sales

    Nintendo sold 9.41 million Switch consoles in the three months leading up to December 31st, 2018, bringing lifetime sales to 32.27 million. That's just 660,000 short of the immensely-popular Nintendo 64 and well beyond both the Gamecube and Wii U. The holiday quarter was a big improvement over 2017, when the company shifted 7.23 million Switch consoles. Still, it seems unlikely that the company will hit its 20 million sales target for the current financial year.

    Why the Nintendo Switch VR support rumor is a genius idea

    The Nintendo Switch is the most versatile home console ever created. To call it a home console even is to do it an injustice, as its battery-powered handheld mode allows it to act as a supercharged portable games machine too. But its detachable controllers and central tablet-like core processing-and-display unit might make it even more versatile still – the Nintendo Switch could be getting VR support.

    Nintendo Switch is the fastest-selling console of the current generation — here's why Nintendo is dominating video games

    Nintendo has been doing great in the past year. The Nintendo Switch is the fastest-selling console of the current generation, and Nintendo sold more games than any other publisher during 2018. Six of the top 20 selling games in 2018 were actually Nintendo Switch exclusives. Compared to Sony and Microsoft who were trying to turn PlayStation and Xbox into large entertainment brands, Nintendo is focusing on making games more portable, accessible, and just plain fun with the Switch.

    Disney+ set to come to Nintendo Switch

    Worried you won't have a device that'll support Disney's new streaming service? The good news is that the company has hinted it'll be available on a wide variety of devices including games consoles and streaming sticks. Quite surprisingly, the Nintendo Switch appeared in a slide during a Disney presentation late last week along with the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Nintendo's latest handheld console has been curiously lax when it comes to supporting streaming apps, especially in the UK that is restricted to just YouTube. Those in the US have access to Hulu too, but Netflix isn't on the platform anywhere.

    Dragon's Dogma Is Getting The Fresh Chance It Deserves On Switch

    I missed out on Capcom’s Dragon’s Dogma when it first released in 2012. The reception was positive, if somewhat mixed. The Kotaku review noted that it was a game with potential that fell short. Since then, it’s developed a cult following thanks to intense monster slaying and a large open world. The upcoming Switch port for its enhanced version, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, is fantastic, and after pouring nearly 20 hours into it this weekend, I’ve yet to get bored.

During Nintendo's Switch presentation, several big announcements were made- the console will cost $299.99, be region free and is set to be launched on March 3, 2017 in North America,  Asia and Europe. Something that Nintendo showed off at the start of the show were the Joy-Con controllers- the tiny handheld input devices that can be detached and swung around like Wiimotes are going to be very, very important to the Nintendo Switch- but not necessarily in the most obvious of ways.

    The 5 Most Exciting Upcoming Indie Switch Games

    Nintendo's latest console, the Switch, is set to be released on March 3, 2017- one of the biggest criticism's of Nintendo's yet-to-be released console has thus far been its rather sparse launch lineup. While The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild certainly looks incredible, the other games teased, while they look fun, don't seem to be big system sellers. Nintendo is painfully aware of this, and has turned to showcasing its indie games- they released a video showing off some of the indie games coming to the system, and they’ve announced that over sixty indie games are on track to be released in 2017. Here are five games worth checking.

    Game Theory: Nintendo’s SECRET PLAN for the SWITCH!

    The Nintendo Switch is literally releasing in a few hours and there has been a TON of HYPE leading up to this, Nintendo's newest console, but when you stop to look at it, the Switch is a pretty bizarre system. The Switch promises the most advanced Rumble features ever, but lags behind the PlayStation and Xbox when it comes to graphics quality. Nintendo keeps pushing it as a portable gaming device, and yet we all have mobile gaming devices in our pockets in the form of smart phones. So what gives?

    Nintendo: Switch Screen Dead Pixels Are Not a Defect

    If your Switch suffers from one or more dead pixels, Nintendo may not see it as a defect, but as a consumer you have rights. It's been a very long time since I purchased an electronic device with a display that had dead pixels. I thought, like I'm sure many others do, that dead pixels were a problem solved by improvements in manufacturing. However, it's 2017 and Nintendo just launched a new product that suffers from them. Worse than that, though, they aren't being classed as a defect.

    Nintendo Is Doubling Production of Switch Units

    Suffice to say that for those that didn't happen to snatch up a Nintendo Switch on launch day (or even a little before) it's exceedingly difficult, if not outright impossible to secure one now. As it stands, it'll probably be like this for the foreseeable near future, but it seems like the early response has spurred Nintendo on to pick up production significantly.

    Nintendo Switch Sells A Half Million Units In Japan Faster Than The PS4

    The Nintendo Switch is doing very well indeed in North America, breaking launch records and moving over 1.5 million units at last count. Things are going so swimmingly, Nintendo has doubled production of their new console. Not bad! But how are things going in Nintendo’s homeland of Japan? When we last checked in, the Nintendo Switch had sold over 330,000 units in its first two days on the Japanese market. That puts the Switch launch above the releases of both the Wii U and PS4, but below the original Wii. In other words, the Switch is popular across the Pacific, but it isn’t breaking records like it is here.

It was good news, then, when developer Over The Moon confirmed that the sequel – The Fall Part 2: Unbound – would still come to Wii U in 2017. Unfortunately that version is no longer on the way, with the title now coming to the Nintendo Switch and other platforms with a Q3 release window. There’s also a new story trailer that also provides a good look at the game.

Cave Story is coming to Switch as Cave Story+. Like The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+, it will have a physical release.
