Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime is still showing up at various places for interviews. Recently, he stopped by Fox Business to chat about Switch and show off the system. While he touches on many of the same topics we’ve heard before, it’s almost worth a watch just for the awkward play of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Limited Run Games hope to bring out first game for Switch this summer
Posted on 1 week ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 20 Comments | 0 Likes
Back in January, Limited Run Games spoke about wanting to go “all-out” with support for Switch. We may begin to see that in just a few months from now.
Gaming Trend asked Limited Run Games co-founder Douglas Bogart about plans for Switch. To that, he said: “It’s looking very positive and we hope to have our first title out this summer, fingers crossed!”
The company hasn’t yet given any sort of idea about the kinds of physical games we could be seeing on Switch. Limited Run often partners with indies, so we should probably look forward to something in that space.

A few weeks ago, the Game Creators Conference 2017 was held in Japan. It was here that Nintendo’s Masaru Mitsuyoshi and Capcom’s Masaru Ijuin held a joint session about Switch. Plenty of information was shared, including how dev kits cost just 50,000 yen. You can read our original post here. With GamesIndusty Japan posting a follow-up article, there are a few exta tidbits we wanted to share.
Nintendo and Capcom had been discussing Switch’s performance and specs. It was important for Nintendo as a platform holder to gather opinions from various developers.
Switch has a set number of screenshots that can be held on the system and microSD card
Posted on 1 week ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 19 Comments | 0 Likes
Switch has a limit on the amount of screenshots you can take. When using the system’s internal storage, it caps off at 1,000 images. The microSD card can hold a much more significant amount. With the external storage, it’s possible to store 10,000 screenshots.
The limit of 10,000 isn’t impossible to work with, but the restriction of 1,000 from Switch’s memory can be more difficult to handle. Given how Switch’s internal memory only contains about 26GB of free space, purchasing a microSD card is advisable.

Video: A look at how Zelda: Breath of the Wild changed since its appearance at The Game Awards 2014
It was at The Game Awards 2014 when Nintendo gave a first look at The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. With so much time having passed since then, GameXplain thought it would be worthwhile to see how the world has changed since then.
As far as the map goes, what Nintendo demonstrated a few years ago still holds true today. There are definitely some differences, but the overall layouts are very similar. GameXplain also managed to find most of the same locations shown at The Game Awards and this is where we can really begin to see how certain parts were reworked.
Watch the full video from GameXplain below.
American programmer lives out his decade-old dream working on Zelda: Breath of the Wild
A decade ago, Corey Bunnell made a post on TranslatorsCafe about spending a good portion of his senior year in high school as an exchange student. He was able to live in Japan, and it sounds like it was a great experience. He later wrote about how his “dream is to live in Japan and work for Nintendo as a game designer.”
Fast-forward to 2017. Nintendo just shipped The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild earlier this month. Towards the beginning of the game’s credits, almost every name is Japanese… except for one. In the “Wildlife Programming” section, one English name can be seen. Yup, it’s “Corey Bunnell”.
First, here’s a look at Bunnell’s post from 2007:
