Nintendo Switch beat PS4, Xbox One because it targeted everyone

Nintendo Switch beat PS4, Xbox One because it targeted everyone

The numbers are in and the Nintendo Switch has proven doubters and naysayers wrong, at least according to the NPD Group. According to its sales data, Nintendo’s convertible gaming device was the best selling console in the US last year and especially in the last month of 2018. It hasn’t plateaued at all since its launch in early 2017 and has even managed to edge out records held by the Sony PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. And that is mostly thanks to the Switch being a console for all.

Nintendo Switch indie game presentation coming this week

For weeks now, Nintendo Switch fans have been expecting the announcement of a new Direct broadcast announcing games for 2019. All the while, Nintendo has stayed silent, much to the dismay of those fans.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate almost didn’t include Incineroar

Super Smash Bros Ultimate almost didn’t include Incineroar

The biggest selling point of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is unquestionably the fact that it features every fighter from previous installments in the series. While that meant a smaller number of new fighters than what we're used to seeing in a new Smash Bros. game, there are still a few characters joining the roster for the first time. One of those is the Pokemon Incineroar, but we're learning today that it almost didn't make the cut.

Nintendo Switch Online might be getting these SNES titles

Nintendo Switch Online might be getting these SNES titles

The Nintendo Switch on its own is already quite the gaming experience. But like any modern console these days, it is made better by an exclusive subscription service. From social features to cloud saving, the Nintendo Switch Online service promises added value to Switch owners but one feature, in particular, keeps fans on their toes: the expanding selection of NES games. Thanks to some sleuthing, however, said fans can now also look forward to their SNES favorites coming to the console. Eventually, that is.

Today is a big day for the Nintendo Switch, as it's getting its first major first-party release of the year (unless you want to count the Nintendo-published Fitness Boxing, which released last week).

Yoshi’s Crafted World and Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn release dates revealed

Yoshi’s Crafted World and Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn release dates revealed

Amid all of the chaos that is CES 2019, Nintendo has announced release dates for two upcoming games, Yoshi's Crafted World and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. The former, as revealed last year, is an entirely new game for the Nintendo Switch, while the latter is a remake of Kirby's Epic Yarn, which launch on Wii way back in 2010. Both games will be here just in time for spring, so if you anticipate needing an extra shot of happy at the end of winter, these two games will certainly be worth considering.

Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is coming to Nintendo Switch

Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is coming to Nintendo Switch

It's kind of hard to believe it, but Dragon's Dogma first debuted nearly seven years ago. Capcom is keeping its unique RPG alive all these years later by announcing a Nintendo Switch port of Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, an enhanced version of the game that launched in 2013. It'll be arriving in April, so we've only got a few months to wait before Dragon's Dogma invades yet another platform.

Nintendo open to dropping consoles if market demands it

Nintendo open to dropping consoles if market demands it

Nintendo has been making gaming machines for more than 30 years at this point, and through all of the ups and downs, it's kept on making home consoles. Though the company has no plans to stop producing home consoles, Nintendo's new president has suggested that he's open to the idea if that's what it'll take to adapt to the ever-changing gaming industry. Perhaps there's a future where Nintendo only makes software for other platforms?

Nintendo Switch weekly eShop update: Spaceship panic

Nintendo Switch weekly eShop update: Spaceship panic

Now that the holidays are over and most of the big sales have concluded, the games industry should be entering a slow phase. Even though the preceding months were packed to the brim with new game releases, there aren't going to be a ton of launches to kick off 2019. There will be a few notable releases here and there, but nothing really like the final months of 2018.

The Best Games of 2018: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

The Best Games of 2018: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

I’m pretty sure that Masahiro Sakurai is a superhuman who is not of this world. Sakurai, who has been the director of the Super Smash Bros. series from the very start and founded Sora, Ltd. in 2005, is notorious for working long hours, sometimes to the point of injury or illness. You’d think that after four different Super Smash Bros. games (five if we’re counting SSB for 3DS and Wii U as two different titles), Sakurai would want to relax a bit. Instead, he and his team at Sora, Ltd. went along and created the biggest SSB game to date, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC details surface

We already knew some of Nintendo's DLC plans for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but today, more details have surfaced. In addition to the Challenger Packs that director Masahiro Sakurai announced before Ultimate's release, it seems there will also be downloadable outfits for Mii Fighters. That isn't very surprising, considering that Nintendo released Mii outfits as DLC for Smash 4, but now we've got official confirmation from the big N itself.
