Developers only need to submit one version of a game on Switch for the entire world
Posted on 1 week ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 15 Comments | 0 Likes
The region-free nature of Switch not only has benefits for gamers, but developers as well. SteamWorld Dig 2 maker Image & Form revealed in a Reddit AMA yesterday that the team is only required “to submit one version of the game for the entire world”. That appears to be a major improvement from Wii U and 3DS, which requires extensive work to cover various regions.
Image & Form community manager Julius Guldbog wrote:
“Now that Nintendo has embraced region-free publishing we save lots of time since we only need to submit one version of the game for the entire world (instead of multiple versions to cover all regions). It saves us months of paperwork!”
Switch truly is region free in every way possible. Cartridges can be played on the system no matter the country they originated from. On top of that, system owners can access the eShop for any region so long as they’ve made a Nintendo Account that corresponds to it.

Fan modifies Amazon Echo to respond to Zelda songs played via ocarina
Posted on 1 week ago by Zack in General Nintendo | 6 Comments | 0 Likes
In an impressive display of both technical knowledge and creativity, YouTuber Allen Pan has modified an Amazon Echo to recognize and respond to songs from The Legend of Zelda played on an ocarina as opposed to just voice commands.
While this would be impressive on it’s own, Allen Pan has gone ahead and connected some frequently used devices in his house to the Amazon Echo and attached an appropriate song for each device. For example, playing the Bolero of Fire from Ocarina of time will turn on his heater; the Song of Storms will activate his humidifier and the Song of Healing from Majora’s Mask will reset all connected devices to their previous state, effectively working as an off switch for his entire house.
This impressive display of technical know-how is certainly one of the more unique and creative approaches to Zelda fandom. Check out the entire video below.
