Earlier in the month, Netflix announced a new animated series based on Castlevania. Executive producer Adi Shankar has now shared a piece of art, pictured above.

A few days ago, French outlet Melty reported that Switch would support Bluetooth headsets based on an interview conducted with Nintendo’s Yoshiaki Koizumi. However, it turns out that information was incorrect.

The site now has a follow-up report in which it states that Bluetooth headsets aren’t actually compatible. There was either an incorrect translation or misunderstanding. Nintendo France passed along the news to Melty.

Of course, this doesn’t mean that Switch doesn’t support headsets at all. You’ll just need to use a wired option.

Thanks to Kenshin0011 for the tip.

Update: Here’s another battery test video from GameXplain:

Original: Nintendo has previously said that Switch’s battery life will last anywhere from 2.5 – 6.5 hours. Siliconera put it to the test by playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

After it was charged to the max, 2 hours and 39 minutes in, the site saw a note in the top left of the screen about how the battery was running out and the system would soon enter sleep mode. This was when Switch had 1 percent of its battery life remaining. After another 9 minutes, the system entered sleep mode. Siliconera conducted the test iwth the default brightness setting.

As for fully charging Switch, the site says four minutes of charging time was needed before it could be turned back on. It was at 45 percent after an hour of charging, 90 percent at 2 hours and 11 minutes, and 100 percent at 3 hours and 4 minutes.

V7 Entertainment is bringing Old Time Hockey to Switch, the studio announced today. The game “channels classic arcade style action”, complete with an “old-school aesthetic from the 70’s era.”

Here’s a brief overview of Old Time Hockey:

“Control schemes range from arcade 2-button controls, beer mode (one-handed) control scheme to more modern style. Play competitively or cooperatively on the couch with your friends in arcade mode, or take to the ice as the worst team in the Bush Hockey League in the hijinks-filled story mode!”

Old Time Hockey is heading to consoles starting in late March, but the Switch version is releasing “at a later date.” Find a trailer below as well as all ten teams in the game.

A new game based on the Cars 3 game was announced last month. It’s being developed by Avalanche Software – the same team behind Disney Infinity.

Platforms for the upcoming title weren’t announced at the time. But thanks to a new classification in Brazil, it’s now known that Cars 3 is planned for both Switch and Wii U.

Warner Bros. will publish Cars 3 later this year.


Portal Knights will be seeing a release on Switch. That’s according to a classification from Brazil, which was added in today.

Portal Knights was thought to be bound for Switch after it was listed by an anonymous major distributor. However, the rating from Brazil is as close we’ll get to an announcement until 505 Games makes it official.
