Sonic Mania will be on Switch the same day as other platforms, won’t cost more
Posted 1 week ago by Brian in News, Switch | 18 Comments
Sonic Mania is due out on Switch later this year. Fortunately, when it’s ready, there won’t be any compromises made to the actual release.
SEGA’s Aaron Webber told Nintendo World Report in an interview at PAX that Sonic Mania will be on Switch at the same time as other platforms. Furthermore, it will be the same price. With talk circulating about some third-party games costing more on Switch, this is certainly encouraging to hear.

Posted 1 week ago by Brian in News, Switch eShop | 6 Comments
Tomorrow Corporation originally intended to have World of Goo, Little Inferno, and Human Resource Machine on the Switch eShop for the system’s launch. That didn’t happen in the end, but we didn’t have to wait too long for their release.
Tomorrow Corporation has now confirmed that World of Goo, Little Inferno, and Human Resource Machine will all be out on Thursday. In North America, that is. No date yet for Europe, but there should be news soon. And since the eShop is technically region free as long as you have a Nintendo Account with the correct region, technically anyone can grab these games in a couple of days.

Switch games can have manuals on the system, devs have to manually invoke the option
Posted 1 week ago by Brian in News, Switch | 13 Comments
Something Switch owners have noticed about the system is that games lack manuals. This comes in contrast to Nintendo’s past, and most recently, the Wii U and 3DS.
Those two systems started to phase out physical manuals. With Switch though, they almost seem to be gone completely. Zelda: Breath of the Wild nor 1-2-Switch have manuals of any sort – not even digital ones accessed on the console.
Interestingly, Yacht Club Games’ David D’Angelo informed Kotaku that Nintendo offers an option for games to have manuals on Switch. Dvelopers must manually invoke the option though.
About Shovel Knight specifically, D’Angelo said:
“You are correct that there isn’t an instruction manual. We weren’t sure how common they would be used on Nintendo Switch. It’s possible we may add it in the future, but we chose to focus on making sure the game was done since we were rushing to make launch day! We were definitely hemming and hawing about whether to pull more all-nighters to get the manuals in there.”
1-2-Switch is already out, but Nintendo is still promoting the game. A new video showing the game’s presence at a recent Washington, DC event can be found below.
