Next Nintendo Pokemon Direct hints at Switch game reveal

Next Nintendo Pokemon Direct hints at Switch game reveal

Nintendo made an interesting announcement today, revealing that a Pokemon-focused Nintendo Direct broadcast will take place later this week. This is interesting for a few reasons, the first being that this Direct broadcast will be live streamed just a few short days before E3 kicks off. It's also curious that this Direct broadcast will be dedicated to Pokemon, when there doesn't seem to be all that much to talk about in regards to the mainline Pokemon series.

Nintendo has teamed up with Frito-Lay for this giveaway, which seems like an odd partner at first blush. In any case, this giveaway will see more than 1,000 Switch consoles given away, so your chances of winning may actually be fairly decent.

Nintendo Switch Monster Hunter XX edition release revealed

The news that the Monster Hunter series will be coming to the Nintendo Switch was big enough on its own, but it doesn't stop there. To celebrate the launch of Monster Hunter XX, Nintendo will be releasing a limited edition console. If we're not counting stuff like the Breath of the Wild decals Nintendo previously released, then this will be the first limited edition Switch console Nintendo has launched.

Nintendo Switch Online service will be delayed

While the Nintendo Switch is enjoying resounding and unprecedented success, one part of its ecosystem is still missing and has yet to be judged. And it seems that fans and critics will have to wait even longer for that final verdict. In a short post revealing the critical pricing details on the Nintendo Switch Online service, Nintendo also revealed that the paid service won't launch later this year as originally planned. Instead, Nintendo will only start charging for the full set of features some time in 2018. Exact date or even month unknown.

Nintendo Switch’s first voice chat headset leaves us worried

We may be getting our first glimpse at how Nintendo intends to handle voice chat on the Switch today, and what we're seeing isn't very encouraging. Manufactured by third-party company HORI, this new headset is going to launch along Splatoon 2 in July. HORI shared images of the product today, and the way it connects to the Switch seems less than ideal.

Pokemon GO Update with Promo Codes event [Try these!]

The first Pokemon GO event with Promo Codes has begun, and it's begun at a retail location. Recent news of cents-per-spin on sponsored locations in Pokemon GO makes the prospect of Niantic's first placement of Promo Codes make a whole lot of sense. To drive the future of Pokemon GO around the world - and to fund the massive billboards Niantic is putting up in major cities this month - they're giving out items through retail.

PokeLand could be Nintendo’s next Pokemon GO

With last summer's immense success in Pokemon GO, it isn't really shocking to see Nintendo and The Pokemon Company trying to knock it out of the park again. Though Pokemon GO is still going fairly strong, the pair of companies have decided to launch a new Pokemon mobile game.

Apple is to blame for your Nintendo Switch shortage

For months now, the Nintendo Switch has been difficult to find.

SlashGear’s E3 2017 Wishlist

SlashGear’s E3 2017 Wishlist

E3 2017 is right around the corner, and so far there hasn't been very much indication of what we'll see there. Obviously, we know what companies like Microsoft and Nintendo will talking about in a general sense, but we'll have to wait for specifics until the show is finally here. With that in mind, I've put together a wishlist of some things I'd like to see at the show. Keep in mind that this isn't necessarily a list of what's likely, just stuff that I'd like see announced. Therefore, don't take this as something of an E3 checklist; I'm just letting my dreams run wild here.

In Monster Hunter XX, Nintendo Switch gets the Capcom title it deserves

Capcom has already thrown some support behind the Nintendo Switch in releasing Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers (out today, as luck would have it), but it just ramped up support for the console in a big way.
