Nintendo Switch Indie World adds fresh new worlds to explore

Despite the technological advancements and raw power of the new Xbox and PlayStation consoles, the aging Nintendo Switch continues to stand strong, especially with a strong selection of games. Most of the media focus, however, has been on big, triple-A titles from popular studios but those are hardly the only satisfying and memorable experiences available on the console. To shine a light on some of the lesser-known games from other developers, Nintendo's Indie World is adding some new titles while showcasing the unique worlds that indie games can offer gamers of all shapes and sizes.

New Nintendo Switch Lite color lands just in time for summer

New Nintendo Switch Lite color lands just in time for summer

Nintendo first released the Switch Lite in September 2019, and while the handheld console seemed primed to receive a bunch of models in different colors, Nintendo has been fairly slow to roll out new ones. Aside from the three colors the Switch Lite launched in - gray, turquoise, and yellow - the only other standard color that's been added to the lineup was coral way back in March 2020. This drought of new Switch Lite colors is finally coming to an end, as Nintendo will introduce a new one next month.

It seems Hello Games is going to continue the trend of releasing big content updates for free, as The Last Campfire received just that today.

New Pokemon Snap trailer shows off a ton of gameplay

If you've been looking forward to the release of New Pokemon Snap later this month, then you'll definitely want to check out a new trailer published by The Pokemon Company earlier today. The new trailer clocks in at just under seven minutes long and shows off a lot of gameplay, but there's just one problem: It's entirely in Japanese, meaning most of us here in the US probably won't understand a lick of the trailer's narration.

Nintendo Switch now has Exploding Kittens for $10

If you've never heard of Exploding Kittens before, I envy you for having the opportunity to discover this oddity for the first time. We started covering the creation of Exploding Kittens back when it was first a physical card game concept. Back then, The Oatmeal and friends wanted to make a game that'd be quick, fun, and abnormal. They made that game with great aplomb.

Scalpers are charging a ton for Super Mario 3D All-Stars, but is anyone buying?

Scalpers are charging a ton for Super Mario 3D All-Stars, but is anyone buying?

Last week, Nintendo removed Super Mario 3D All-Stars from the Switch eShop and confirmed that it would stop shipping new copies to retailers. At the time, we wondered if scalpers on sites like eBay would take the opportunity to inflate prices on copies they'd no doubt been holding, and it seems they've done exactly that. The question, however, is whether or not those scalpers are actually managing to sell these exorbitantly-priced copies of the game.
