Bravely Default 2 revealed as a Nintendo Switch exclusive

Back in the heyday of the 3DS, Square Enix released a fascinating little JRPG called Bravely Default. Despite the weird name, Bravely Default captured itself a sizable fanbase with its gameplay that seemed to take inspiration from classic Final Fantasy games. The first Bravely Default was released in 2013, followed by a successor called Bravely Second: End Layer, which made its way to western shores in 2016.

Nintendo kicks off Switch eShop sale for The Game Awards

The annual Game Awards are happening tonight, and to celebrate the nominations various Switch games have received, Nintendo has kicked off an eShop sale. This one follows the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale Nintendo held for the eShop, so it won't be shocking to learn that the list of discounts isn't as long as the one we saw a couple of weeks ago. Still, this eShop sale has a number of deals that weren't available during Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Tetris 99 had received a pretty beefy update, as this one adds a new Team Battle Mode to the game.

Those teams then do battle, with the last team standing being declared the winner.

Pokemon Sword and Shield review: Same as it ever was

Pokemon Sword and Shield review: Same as it ever was

At this point, I think it’s safe to say that Pokemon Sword and Shield are the most controversial Pokemon releases we’ve ever seen. Game Freak’s announcement that Sword and Shield wouldn’t feature a full national Pokedex was the straw that broke the camel’s back for a lot of people, and after that, we saw a wave of criticism coming from longtime Pokemon fans online.

Nintendo Switch in China will have only one game at launch next week

At long last, Nintendo's highly-rated gaming console is coming to China. But when the Nintendo Switch does land in stores there next week, it might barely even make a ripple. But while getting approved to officially start sales in the country is newsworthy in itself, it will probably make very little difference in global sales numbers, especially considering there will be only one game available for sale for the console when it launches.
