Posted on 2 days ago by Matt(@OnePunchMaz) in Screenshots, Switch | 2 Comments | 0 Likes
A new set of amiibo is being released alongside Splatoon 2, and just like in the first game, these will unlock special outfits. These are somewhat similar to the outfits the original amiibo in the first game unlocked – the new Inkling Girl amiibo unlocks a school uniform, the Inkling Boy amiibo unlocks a ninja outfit and the Inkling Squid amiibo unlocks a set of heavy armor (called Power Gear in the first game).
In the original Splatoon, you had to play special challenge levels to receive the outfits. We don’t know yet how it’ll work in Splatoon 2, as we barely know anything about the game’s singleplayer content at the moment.

Super Bomberman R frame rate comparison – before and after version 1.3
Posted on 2 days ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Switch, Videos | 4 Comments | 0 Likes
Super Bomberman R received its latest patch tonight. Among other things, the developers increased the game’s frame rate.
Some are claiming that Super Bomberman R runs at 60 frames per second with version 1.3. We’ll probably need an analysis to verify that, but there’s no doubt that it runs at a faster rate.
Here’s a quick video showing the improvement:
[Review] Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
Posted on 2 days ago by Dennis(@LyonHart_) in Reviews, Switch | 30 Comments | 0 Likes
Release date: April 28, 2017
Two years ago, I wrote an article on my relationship with Mario Kart and how Mario Kart 8 revitalized the series. In making that game, Nintendo reignited the magic I used to feel towards the franchise during the N64 and GameCube days. Mario Kart 8 shed a whole new light on kart racers and the potential they had at a time where most felt stale or rehashed, with Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed being the new “king” of that genre before Mario Kart 8 returned to reclaim. Now in 2017, we’re back with the definitive version of one of Wii U’s best titles on its successor, the Nintendo Switch, with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. It’s as extravagant and beautiful as it was on Wii U, but this time with a revamped battle mode, all DLC included, a few new features, and plenty to love all over again.
