Layers of Fear: Legacy first surfaced for Switch in September. Today, Bloober Team shared new details about the game.

Layers of Fear: Legacy is based on the original title from 2016 that released on a number of platforms. It has been “remastered and redesigned exclusively” for Nintendo’s console.

The Nintendo Power brand has been brought back in a big way. Nintendo just released the first episode of its new “Nintendo Power” podcast. You can listen to it right here.

Host Chris Slate is joined by Nintendo Minute co-host Kit Ellis and Damon Baker from Publisher and Developer Relations at Nintendo of America to look back at Switch’s first year. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild developers Eiji Aonuma and director Hidemaro Fujibayashi then discuss their game.

It’s been a busy year for Nintendo and Switch, with many titles launching on the platform since its debut in March. With 2017 coming to a close, Nintendo has decided to share a listing of the system’s best-selling games this year. Sort of. There are a couple of caveats to consider.

But first, on with the list:

ARMS version 5.0.0 launches tomorrow

Posted 1 month ago by in News, Switch | 6 Comments | 0 Likes

The next major update for ARMS will be available tomorrow, Nintendo has announced. It will be highlighted by the addition of a brand new fighter who was teased over the weekend.

Aside from the latest character, Nintendo hasn’t said much about ARMS version 5.0.0. We should have details very soon at least.


System: Switch (eShop)
Release date: December 21, 2017
Developer: Aurélien Regard / Seaven Studio
Publisher: Plug In Digital

Set in a far-future interpretation of one of the oldest pieces of western literature, The Next Penelope has an engaging aesthetic wrapper for its gameplay mixture of top-down shooter and Micro Machines style racing. As novel as space Poseidon might be, these narrative elements are also its flimsiest facet. The snippets of dialogue that are peppered throughout the game’s five main major challenges fumble with some inelegant wording, odd grammar, and a few comma splices. The premise isn’t given the space to develop into much beyond passing references to the Odyssey. Fortunately, this is all just window dressing – the game’s hectic arcade-style shooting fares much better in blending somewhat dissonant gameplay concepts. It comes together as an impressively well constructed genre hybrid.

ConcernedApe began to tease new content for Stardew Valley last month. It was said at the time that it will be released alongside the free multiplayer update. Today, ConcernedApe provided brand new information that will be included.

Here’s the official word from the developer:

Stardew Valley’s new content and multiplayer update will go live on Switch sometime in 2018.


New characters are in the works or Mighty Gunvolt Burst. Inti Creates has announced Ray (Mighty No. 9), Copen (Azure Striker Gunvolt), and Kurona (Gal*Gun 2) DLC.

All three of these characters will be available on December 28. They’ll be sold as a DLC pack for $1.99.
