Here we are again talking about Xenoblade Chronicles – this time with something a little bit different. Instead of the usual ten-minute video we usually share on Sunday, this is more of a discussion. I’ve had a desire to talk more in-depth about the franchise because there’s so much to discuss about these complex games.

To help me on this task, our reporter Nicolas joined me in an hour-long Xenoblade discussion where we talk about our experiences with the series, specific plot points and what we expect from the future third game in the franchise. If you are interested, feel free to check it out in the video down below.

Splatoon is a fascinating franchise to look at. Coming from a company that has the biggest names in the industry, it’s impressive how fast the series managed to get the same success of other IPs with three games already in the span of eight years.

In today’s video, I wanted to reflect in the aging process of the franchise, looking at how new and fresh the game looked on Wii U and how the series has evolved since that. If you’re interested in that topic, feel free to check out the video down below. At the very end here’s also the announcement for the winner of our last giveaway.

After the new trailer released last week, we discovered that Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is way closer than we thought, with a new release date set for July 29 rather than September. That is something incredibly rare in the gaming industry and may be a sign that Nintendo and Monolith Soft are really confident in the game.

With that in mind plus some other thoughts, in today’s video I discuss the possibility that Xenoblade Chronicles 3 could be the best we’ve seen of the series thus far. Feel free to check my conclusions below.

At the end of this month we will see the release of Nintendo Switch Sports, the new entry for the Wii Sports series. Taking into consideration the similarities between Switch and Wii, including motion controls and the huge install base, it’s not a surprise to see the series returning.

However, some have questioned decisions made for the game such as the six sports available or the new design for characters. In today’s video, I discuss everything that we know about the game yet and share a few opinions as well. You can check the video down below – and be sure to watch until the end, as we also have a giveaway in which you can win $20 eShop credit.

Over the years we’ve seen many instances in which Nintendo resorted to a very common strategy in the gaming industry: releasing a very successful title followed by a sequel using many of the tools created for its predecessor. Engine, assets, animation, and other elements are some of the things that are brought back.

Now we’re waiting on the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which seems to be taking a lot of elements from the last successful Zelda game. In today’s video, I decided to take a look at other direct sequels that Nintendo produced in the past, analyzing the different strategies and trying to see where the new Zelda may fit into that. You can check out the video down below.

After the preview for the game last month, our final review for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is here.

In this video review, we share our experience with the Switch version. We go over how the game evolves the classic LEGO formula while retaining a lot of the elements from previous titles.

Recently, the first Kirby game with true 3D gameplay was released on Switch. It’s fascinating to observe that process and notice the many adaptations developers make to guarantee that everything works perfectly in that sort of new and complex environment.

In today’s video, we’re looking back at some of the franchises from Nintendo that made the jump from 2D to 3D with great success. I specifically went with five series that I consider the best. You can check the full list in the video down below.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is the newest installment in the long-running LEGO series. Recently as part of a press preview, I had the opportunity to watch more than 40 minutes of gameplay for the title ahead of its launch and I came away quite impressed.

The game appears to be a departure from the classic LEGO formula. New layers of complexity are added to the gameplay, making the whole experience feel more engaging and truly different from past games in the series. You can check out my full impressions and the gameplay footage in the video down below.

In the last Nintendo Direct, we saw the announcement of a new entry on the Mario Strikers series after 15 years in the form of Battle League.

The game is one of the many spin-offs in which Mario and his friends play a specific sport. However, I would argue that this is a good example of how to break the usual formula that we see in those titles. What we see in Strikers is indeed soccer, but it’s a kind of soccer far removed from reality, with so many insane concepts that it almost feels like an entirely new sport.

In today’s video, I discuss how Mario Strikers manages to be different and why it’s so nice to see the series coming back with the upcoming release of Battle League. You can check out the video down below.

It honestly doesn’t feel like five years have gone by since Switch first launched. Personally speaking, I still very much enjoy the novelty of playing games either in portable mode or on the television. But of course, the most important aspect of a console is always its library and the Switch has a lot to offer in that area.

In today’s video, I discuss Nintendo’s strategy on Switch as a publisher and how the company is making smart use of its assets to provide a new game almost every month, being very close to sustaining the console on their own and releasing games of all sizes. You can check out the video down below.
