Wondering when Redout will be heading to Switch? It may not be too long until we receive a final date. Developer 34BigThings wrote in a blog post that an announcement should be made “soon”.
Going into specifics as to why it’s taken so long, 34BigThings explained that the initial PC release required a great amount of resources. This resulted in “less allocated time, more assets, regression bugs, more optimisation work” on consoles. In the end, “PC gamers got more stuff early, console gamers will get a polished game with the same content.”

Pocket Rumble was planned to hit the Switch eShop in March. That didn’t happen sadly, and the game remains without a concrete release date. The good news is that Pocket Rumble shouldn’t be too far off.
As for why Pocket Rumble was delayed, one of the co-designers mentioned that “the date we announced was too early to begin with due to miscommunication”. “Working out the technical kinks of the port has just taken much longer than we expected,” the developer added.

Nintendo shares some 1-2-Switch Easter eggs
Posted 2 weeks ago by Brian in News, Switch | 2 Comments
1-2-Switch has a few Easter eggs that you may not be aware of. On its Japanese blog, Nintendo went over some of the smaller but more significant details.
The first Easter eggs concerns the Shaver mini-game. If you keep playing it three times, you may receive a challenge to shave all of the hair on your head. Hold the Joy-Con like a barber’s clippers and start shaving your head. The angle for shaving here is different from shaving a beard, so those who couldn’t win with beard shaving may have a chance to come out victorious.

NES Classic Edition discontinued in Australia, Italy
Posted 2 weeks ago by Brian in General Nintendo, News | 14 Comments
The end of the NES Classic Edition truly is a worldwide affair. It started out with Nintendo of America stating that production is ending in the states this month. Over in Japan, the Famicom Mini is also coming to an end – for now at least, but likely permanently.
We have news about two other regions as well. In Australia and Italy, Nintendo is providing the following statement:
“We can confirm that we are no longer manufacturing the Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System. If production resumes in the future, an update will be posted on the official Nintendo website.”
So that’s pretty much it, folks. It’s looking the end is here for the NES Classic Edition / NES Mini / Famicom Mini. That decision won’t many sense to many, but that’s where things stand now.
