90’s Arcade Racer transitions from Wii U to Switch under the name ’90s Super GP
Posted 2 days ago by Brian in News, Switch, Wii U eShop | 15 Comments
First announced for the system in 2013, 90’s Arcade Racer was supposed to eventually end up on Wii U with Nicalis as the game’s publisher. After several years though, nothing materialized, and it has been difficult to obtain an update about the situation.
That brings us to Switch. Wii U is off the table at this point, but Nicalis appears to be bringing 90’s Arcade Racer to Nintendo’s new console instead under the name ’90s Super GP. The project is listed on the company’s revamped website.
’90s Super GP is still without a release date. But since it has a new name and is coming to a new console, hopefully it’s not too far off.
An overview of ’90s Super GP is posted below.
Early footage is in showing SplatNet 2 with Splatoon 2, the app connectivity with Nintendo Switch Online. Have a look at the video below.

Nintendo Switch Online app is now functional
Posted 2 days ago by Brian in Mobile, News | 3 Comments
The Nintendo Switch Online app debuted a bit earlier than expected when it made a surprise appearance on the App Store and Google Play last night. At the time, however, you couldn’t do much.
The good news is that the Nintendo Switch Online app is now functional. The bad news is that you still can’t do much. Without a copy of Splatoon 2, it doesn’t offer any functionality. You should be able to use it come Friday – or if you receive a copy early.
