Posted on 4 years ago by Joshua in News, Switch | 0 comments
It’s basically tradition at this point: Nintendo continues to give out weekly free ingame items for Breath of the Wild on Switch. Just head to your news page and make sure you’re subscribed to the Zelda channel!
This week, the game’s director Hidemaro Fubuyashi has some armor-enhancing items for us. These are as listed here: Yellow Chuchu Jelly (x3) and Electric Keese Wing (x3).
The director pairs the items with a helpful tip on how to use them: “Levelling up the Rubber Armor set twice will give it the ‘Shockproof’ effect.” It’s implied that the electrifying items will, when brought to a great fairy fountain, help in upgrading the Rubber Armor set.
Stay tuned for more Breath of the Wild distributions.

“KORG Gadget for Nintendo Switch” microsite now up
Posted on 4 years ago by Joshua in News, Switch eShop | 0 comments
A few days ago, we learned that the music creation tool KORG Gadget is coming to the Switch in 2018. While KORG Gadget has found a niche on the DS and 3DS family as well as some Apple platforms, not much is known about the Switch release.
Maybe this will clear things up. A mini website has been released today specifically for Switch news updates. You can access that website here.
It is implied that the website will be updated as more news rolls out, but for now it’s pretty bare-bones. Either way, it is good to know that all Switch updates for this software will be collected in one place.
Hand of Fate 2 developer “investigating” Switch port
Posted on 4 years ago by Joshua in Interviews, Switch | 3 Comments
Hand of Fate 2 is a possibility for Switch. Developer Defiant Development is looking into it at least. In an interview about Hand of Fate 2, communications manager Lee May said, “it’s definitely something we’re investigating.”
May’s full words:
“Definitely a possibility, but we’re not promising anything yet. The Switch is very popular around the studio and we recognize that the mobile format is a lovely fit for Hand of Fate’s gameplay. We don’t have anything to announce on the platform at the moment, but it’s definitely something we’re investigating. There are a ton of fantastic indies on the Switch right now, and we’d love to join them.”
If Hand of Fate 2 were to make it to Switch, it would be yet another well-loved indie series on the platform.
