Super Mario Maker 2 review: Beautiful insanity

Super Mario Maker 2 review: Beautiful insanity

If there was any reason at all to own a Wii U, Super Mario Maker was it. Super Mario Maker was so unique and so popular that I think if it would have been a launch title, the Wii U may have succeeded despite all that was working against it. Super Mario Maker 2 on Switch, then, was inevitable, and if you’re looking for more of a good thing, you’ll definitely find it here. Unfortunately, it isn’t all sunshine and daisies in the world of Super Mario Maker 2, as the consistent problems with Nintendo Switch Online hold this game back from achieving true greatness.

Pokemon Masters trailer shows off more 3-on-3 trainer battles

Pokemon Sword and Shield will probably wind up being two of the biggest releases of the year, but ahead of their launch, Nintendo is plotting a new Pokemon mobile game. Dubbed Pokemon Masters, there still isn't very much we know about the game, despite the fact that it's supposed to launch at some point this summer. Today, a new trailer is shedding a little more light on Pokemon Masters by showing us some of the things we'll be able to do in game.

Tetris 99 is getting a physical release later this year

Tetris 99 is getting a physical release later this year

On top of everything else that Nintendo announced today, the company also confirmed that Tetris 99 will be getting a physical, retail release later on this year. Tetris 99 was launched last year as something of a carrot-on-a-stick for Nintendo Switch users - though the game is free-to-play, you need to be a Switch Online subscriber to play it. If you're wondering how Nintendo will handle releasing a physical version of a free-to-play game, you definitely aren't alone.

Pokemon GO new Appraisal System Chart and Guide, plus a glitch!

Pokemon GO new Appraisal System Chart and Guide, plus a glitch!

There's a new set of updates in the mix today for Pokemon GO, and we've got a full rundown here for you - including a chart for the new Appraisal System! The Appraisal System Update for July 2019 changes the way we use the game to gain deeper insight into each Pokemon. Since the beginning of Pokemon GO, there've been 3rd-party apps that've gone the extra mile in identifying IV numbers in Pokemon, thereby showing their literal range and spot in that range. Finally, three years later, Niantic just baked that functionality into the game.

Luigi’s Mansion 3 just got the perfect release date

Luigi’s Mansion 3 just got the perfect release date

Back at E3 2019, Nintendo made a pretty big deal about Luigi's Mansion 3. Given its 2019 release window, we expected Luigi's Mansion 3 to be a big focus of the show, and it was exactly that. There was only one problem: E3 came and went without Nintendo confirming an actual release date for the game, something we thought we'd definitely see confirmed.

New Nintendo Switch model releases next month with one key change

New Nintendo Switch model releases next month with one key change

A week after announcing the Switch Lite, Nintendo is back at it today with the announcement of a new standard Switch model. Thanks to FCC filings, we had some idea that this announcement was coming, but don't expect this to be a big mid-generation update on the same level of something like the Xbox One X or the PS4 Pro. In fact, there doesn't seem to be very much that's changed with this new model.

Joy-con drift complaints are growing in number and noise

Joy-con drift complaints are growing in number and noise

Mechanical parts eventually degrade through wear and tear, especially when such parts are exposed to extensive use. But when that happens just four months after buying a relatively expensive accessory, there's bound to be some rather dissatisfied owners complaining loudly on the Internet. That seems to be the exact case with owners of the Nintendo Switch Joy-cons who are clamoring for Nintendo to acknowledge what seems to be an increasingly common mechanical problem with the controllers.

Nintendo Switch at FCC with new CPU and storage sparks a little hope

Nintendo Switch at FCC with new CPU and storage sparks a little hope

Nintendo has just announced the Switch Lite and while it wasn't exactly a surprise, it may not have been the announcement some gamers were waiting for. The Switch Lite rumors came along with a Switch Pro but rumors about the latter seem to have gone silent. Instead, what dropped by the FCC is almost the same Switch but the mere indication that it will have a different processor and memory type is enough to make Switch fans hope for better days.
