Unreleased SNES Rayman prototype “released” for posterity

The gaming industry is a very secretive one. Much of the planning, brainstorming, and testing happens behind closed doors and eventually gets lost and forgotten. That means knowledge and experiences that could educate future generations turn into dust, sometimes literally. Fortunately, there are those who have recognized that depressing situation and have taken upon themselves to archive and preserve gaming history, which is how gamers and game developers are now able to enjoy a Rayman game that was scrapped and almost never saw the light of day.

Mario, Zelda are NOT the Nintendo Switch’s top sellers in Japan

In the very first days of the Nintendo Switch, nay even before it launched, some remarked, only half-jokingly, that the console is really just a dedicated gaming device for Zelda, Breath of the Wild.

Unfortunately, that portability factor only really applies when you're using the console in tablet - playing it in TV mode requires that you use its somewhat bulky dock. Up until now, there wasn't a very good way to play the Switch on a TV without using the dock, but SFANS is looking to change that with its new portable dock for the Switch.

Sheikah Switch makes you feel like Link using a Sheikah Slate

Sheikah Switch makes you feel like Link using a Sheikah Slate

This Nintendo Switch mod gives you a taste of inception by making you feel like Link holding a Sheikah Slate to control Link holding a Sheikah Slate. Convoluted, confusing, and absolutely wonderful? Definitely! And expensive too. But if you're a die-hard Zelda fan and collector, this latest MakoMod creation will be too good to pass up. Especially if it's a one of a kind "skin" that trumps whatever Zelda-themed Switch Nintendo may or may not, and most likely won't, come up with.
