Splatoon 2 release could be ruined by Nintendo’s online ineptitude

Splatoon 2 release could be ruined by Nintendo’s online ineptitude

After months of waiting, today is the day that Splatoon 2 arrives. Through numerous test fire events, Switch-owning gamers should already have a good idea if this game is for them, and for everyone who's on the fence, the stellar reviews for the game may push them to take the plunge. It should be an exciting day for Switch owners, but instead there's something of a black cloud hanging over Splatoon 2's launch: Nintendo's online ineptitude.

N64 Classic Edition: 8 games we’d like to see

N64 Classic Edition: 8 games we’d like to see

Yesterday, we heard that Nintendo may be plotting an N64 Classic Edition. With the NES Classic Edition in the books and an SNES version on the way, this is hardly surprising. If the SNES Classic Edition sells well (and we all know it will), then Nintendo will almost certainly produce an N64 Classic Edition. With that in mind, here are eight games that I think should feature on such a retro console.

Super Mario makeup kit is the bizarre brainchild of Nintendo and Shu Uemura

Super Mario makeup kit is the bizarre brainchild of Nintendo and Shu Uemura

Popular cosmetics line Shu Uemura has teamed up with Nintendo to launch a special new makeup set. Why Nintendo? Because the makeup set revolves around the company's most popular video game franchise: Super Mario. The makeup is inspired the massively popular game franchise, though it's more accurate to say that the packaging is inspired by it: the makeup is just makeup, after all.

Rare NES game sells for a fortune (you won’t guess which one)

Rare NES game sells for a fortune (you won’t guess which one)

When it comes to game collecting, there are a lot of hard to find video games that cost a pretty penny. Unboxed copies of Chrono Trigger, for instance, routinely sell for more than $100 on eBay, while a handful of copies of the infamous Atari game E.T. the Extra Terrestrial sold for around $1,500 after being exhumed from a landfill in 2014. Those games and their prices, however, pale in comparison to one highly sought-after NES title: Stadium Events.

Nintendo N64 Classic Edition may just have been outed

Nintendo N64 Classic Edition may just have been outed

Given the massive success of the NES Classic Edition and the fact that an SNES follow up will be launching in September, it feels relatively safe to assume that Nintendo will want to release an N64 Classic Edition at some point. Today we may be getting our first indication that such a retro console is in the works. A new trademark filing from Nintendo may have just blown the lid off of such a project, and if that's the case, then this is a very exciting development.

Pokemon GO Legendary Update released: new Gym Raids!

Nintendo Switch online app is an astonishingly bad misstep

Nintendo Switch online app is an astonishingly bad misstep

We sort of had a feeling that Nintendo's online system for the Switch was going to disappoint in one way or another, and now that the online app has finally launched, things certainly don't look all that great. Though we won't be able to actually use the app until Splatoon 2 launches on Friday, some of the things in Nintendo's FAQ aren't doing much to instill confidence in the Switch's online system.

Nintendo Switch Online apps now available but you can’t use them yet

On Friday, Nintendo Switch owners will be scrambling to download and play the next big title intended for the nascent gaming console. Or at least most will. There might be a fraction of owners might be more interested in something that’s suppose to happen on that day too: the launch of the Switch’s online service app. Well, no need to wait, because someone at Nintendo flipped the switch early. Except the app isn’t exactly usable yet anyway.

Splatoon 2 reviews seem to agree: You will probably love Switch’s latest game

We've got a few more days until Splatoon 2 releases, but early reviews of Nintendo's latest first-party game have started going live today. Splatoon 2, for those who need an introduction, is the follow-up to the Wii U title that started the series. Given the Wii U's rather poor sales performance, not many people got to play the original Splatoon, but in looking at some of these reviews, it's clear that Switch owners will want to pick this up.
