A few changes have been made to the proceedings, too!

Super Nintendo World’s main attraction will be Mario Kart

Super Nintendo World’s main attraction will be Mario Kart

It’s cool to be Nintendo again, in no small part thanks to the success of the Nintendo Switch. Perhaps it would have been a different story if the Switch became an embarrassment instead. Perhaps Nintendo would have shelved its plans for theme parks then. But since that gloomy scenario didn’t come to pass, it’s full steam ahead for the first Super Nintendo World. And, unsurprisingly, it will center around the company’s most iconic character and his crazy driving antics in Mario Kart.

ARMS release for Nintendo Switch: What to look forward to

Next week, one of the most intriguing games on the young Nintendo Switch is set to launch. ARMS is an entirely new IP from Nintendo, and thus it took us by surprise when it was announced ahead of launch. Thanks to Nintendo's own multiplayer demo - known as the "ARMS Global Testpunch" - quite a few people have already had the chance to try the game for themselves. In short, ARMS has shown that it's more than just a tech demo for the Switch's Joy-Con controllers.

Pokemon Gold and Silver are coming to the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console

You'd think that announcing Pokken Tournament DX and Pokemon UltraSun and UltraMoon would be more than enough for an eight minute Nintendo Direct broadcast, but you'd be wrong.

Pokemon UltraSun and UltraMoon release date detailed for 3DS

When Nintendo first announced today's Pokemon Direct, a lot of people were hoping for a mainline Pokemon game on the Switch. Prior to the Switch's launch, rumors claimed that Nintendo was working on an enhanced edition of Pokemon Sun and Moon for the console, which was codenamed Pokemon Stars. As it turns out, Pokemon Sun and Moon will indeed be getting an enhanced edition - two of them, in fact - but they won't be coming to the Switch.

A Pokemon GO Fire and Ice event update: What To Catch

News of an Ice and Fire event in Pokemon GO has the forums and Reddit stoked - now it's time to get busy with the details. What we're working with today is the assumption that the several-times-proven sources that brought us pre-official confirmation (see link below) of the next Pokemon GO event will be right again. If they are right again, the next Pokemon GO event will be coming with Pokemon from the two polar opposite types: Ice Type Pokemon and Fire Type Pokemon.

Next Nintendo Pokemon Direct hints at Switch game reveal

Next Nintendo Pokemon Direct hints at Switch game reveal

Nintendo made an interesting announcement today, revealing that a Pokemon-focused Nintendo Direct broadcast will take place later this week. This is interesting for a few reasons, the first being that this Direct broadcast will be live streamed just a few short days before E3 kicks off. It's also curious that this Direct broadcast will be dedicated to Pokemon, when there doesn't seem to be all that much to talk about in regards to the mainline Pokemon series.

Nintendo Switch Online service will be delayed

While the Nintendo Switch is enjoying resounding and unprecedented success, one part of its ecosystem is still missing and has yet to be judged. And it seems that fans and critics will have to wait even longer for that final verdict.
